I can't believe I'm only 3 days away from my long anticipated new me. I'm having a tummy tuck, Lipo and BBL with Dr. Weinzweig. I'm so excited. I was told I have to sleep in a recliner for 2 weeks at a 45 degree angle. I can't sit on my butt. Does anyone have a pillow they would recommend for me to buy at such short notice?

No more belly

I had my surgery on August 15th. All I can say is I had the most pleasant experience. The Jw plastics team was awesome. I wasn't nervous one bit. The anesthesiologist was very cool. All I can remember him saying I'm going to give me something to make you a little sleepy that was at 7 AM. Then all I heard was Pamela it's all over you look beautiful.????????????????. The surgery took about 4 1/2 hour in about an hour and a half recovery the car ride home was horrible because I had to P really bad and I live an hour and a half with traffic three hours from the surgery center. I am now six daysPostop. The first day wasn't bad at all as far as pain control days two through four was manageable. Yesterday was the worst I have so much pain because of the gas that was trying to expel my body it felt like an alien was trying to burst out of my stomach with all the Colace eating all the roughage taking magnesium citrateand finally A fleets enema I was relieved I'm still pretty sore lots of swelling back pain and it's probably from stooping swap I'm OK what I do it over again yes I can't wait to see my end result. My follow up appointment is Wednesday I can't wait to have his binder dressing bitches drain out of my body I know that won't be for another week or so but I'm just saying. trying to get comfortable is another thing I can't sit on my butt I can't be on my back can't be on my sideand I can't be on my stomach. So go figure. I have a very supportive husband. I called him all times of the night to get repositioned. I hope all is well.

16 days post op

I had my annoying drains removed yesterday. Can you say freedom. I'm still swollen and can't stand straight. That's all expected. The doctor said I'm healing well. I purchased some vitamin E cream from him that's suppose to fade and flatten my incision. I'm so happy with my results so far. I got to sleep in my bed last night. Whew !! What a challenge. I don't have to see the doctor again until Nov 1st. I'm completely pain free and look forward to my continued transformation. Here are some before and after photos.
