Hello. I have found this site to be so helpful. I am looking for a surgery buddie that will be having surgery around the same time as me to help me through the proces. I have heard great things about Dr Cochran but would love to hear from someone who already used him. What do I expect? Results? Help

10 days and a wake up

Ok so today I woke up and it still feels so unreal. Never in a million years would I have thought I would ever get a tummy tuck or lipo but I then realized that u do so much for others I need to do something for myself. I am so unhappy looking at my body, I want to be happy again. I had a baby 7 months ago and I love him to the moon and back but... It's time for momma to get her groove back. Anyone else close to their produce date? I'm going to tell Dr Cochran make sure he sucks all the fat out he can. Lmbo.. Tomorrow I go for my pre op.

6 more days tomorrow

Omg, I can't believe I only have 6 more days tomorrow. I had my pre op on Tuesday at Dr C office. Donna is a doll!! She answered all my questions and reassured me everything was going to be wonderful. I did my CBC which was only $12 across the street from the office and will turn my prescriptions in tomorrow to get filled. This weekend I am cleaning the house from top to bottom and going grocery shopping for everything I will need. I'm not sure how to feel right now but I'm excited and nervous all at the same time

1 day post op

Yesterday I had my surgery with Dr Cochran. It took a little longer than expected but no complications. I must say, I took a shower today and finally got to see results and I love it!! I have posted my before and after.

4 Day Post op

I have been feeling really good. Hardly no pain just sore. I think the key is making yourself move. Each day I walk from my room to the kitchen at least 3 times an hour. I rest in between. I have even driven to the store down the street. I don't have any bruising on my stomach, I have a little on my sides, but most of my bruising is where I received lipo on my arms. I haven't taken my pain medication in a full day. I have gotten up and showered every day. I don't have awhole lot of swelling. I do have minimal swelling at the top of my stomach, arms, and thighs. I have not had any issues with excessive bleeding or anything. My scar is healing so beautiful and flat. I haven't taken the strips off, I have just been letting them come off as they please lol.. I have been taking 2 Bromelain pills which I think has helped with swelling and inflammation. I also been drinking 100% pinapple juice. I go back to the doctor this Tuesday and hope Dr C takes this drain bag out. I feel I have made the perfect choice for my ps. My scar is super low. I am happy thus far and it's only been 4 days

Day 13 Post op

Even though I am still a little swollen, its only been 13 days since my surgery and I am stating to see my shape come back... I an so extremely happy.

Everyone seemed nice and Dr C was down to Earth and made me feel comfortable. I am nervous and so ready to start the recovery process. I have 12 days until surgery. Help!!
