38 Year Old Mother of 3 Including Twins and 2 C Sections. Chevy Chase, MD
After 2 caesareans, my stomach had a hanging pouch...
Waist is snatched!
Bindeless for 24 hours...
On with the story:
It was awful!! I felt unguarded. I felt puffy, although, upon checking in the mirror, I looked great. The worst part came at night. I slept without it. Woke up and had two Lipo lumps on the side. They hurt and are hard! Needless to say, I am safely and securely back in my garment and won't let it out of my sight again! Lol.
I've developed an insane sweet tooth (cycle is due soon), so really need to work out, but haven't been okay'd yet. Here is a pic. Thighs and hips...whoa! Expanded out of nowhere.
2 1/2 months post Tummy Tuck
Lipo and tummy tuck are cosmetic surgeries. Yes, my stomach looks dope. I'm so glad to have that pouch gone and that bloated look out the window. But man oh man, my damn thighs have enlarged! Lol. I guess fat cells really travel. I have to be extra careful of what I eat. Alcohol-no! Sweets-bad. Lol.
I literally weigh the exact same as when I had the surgery. My tummy is flatter, but again, he butt and thighs are bigger. I'm still glad I did the surgery. Definitely should've had thighs done at same time. Not getting anymore surgeries because the pain was just enough for me!
All in all, I feel wonderful. I think I look awesome. I'm thankful. I do need to step up the weight lifting techniques because just treadmilling isn't working.
The pics aren't enough justice. I'll update once I'm 3 months post.
Fat has traveled down...
4 months later...
Honestly, I don't regret the decision at all. It was a rough road and I'm finally seeing the benefits.
Now bad stuff: weight distribution. My arms and thighs are much more flabby, hence, the diet pills and treadmill. If you look at my pics, you can see they work.
I still wear my garment at night. Gives me a great contour by morning.
If you're in debate about the surgery I'll say this: Do it, but have help for the first 2 weeks. I'll update next month.
Dr Kung and his staff is amazing! He treated me and my concerns with great care. My scar is so even and so low! I could not have chosen better and would recommend him to ANYONE considering plastic surgery. I call often with questions and concerns and I've always been responded to immediately and without delay. That speaks volumes for anyone post-surgery.
