53 years old; Tummy Tuck with Lipo of back, flanks, hips

5'3 160 pounds- Lost 130 pounds 12-14 years ago...

5'3 160 pounds- Lost 130 pounds 12-14 years ago and lost another 10 pounds recently. After dealing with rolls of ugly skin from the weight loss plus different abdominal surgeries that have left my abdomen looking awful, it's time for a tummy tuck with lipo. Had a breast and arm lift this summer. Super happy with those results.

Two days post op update

Although I shuddered to post my pre-op picture because it's hideous, I know how much it helped me seeing so many post their before and after pictures. I wanted to do the same with hopes it helps someone out there. This is just my second day post op with compression garment on but it gives an idea of where I'm at. I have tons of swelling but know it will take time to see real results. I'm walking a lot around the house and already walking straight up.

1 Week Post Op

Before and one week post op pictures, still very swollen but happy with results so far. My PS is outstanding, can't believe how much skin and rolls of fat are gone....

12 day update/ lots less swelling...

12 day post op comparison of tummy tuck with lipo of back, flanks, and hips. Still super swollen so excited to see continued progress. Two week mark and completely off pain meds, even traveled on a road trip for a quick overnight getaway with my husband. Still wearing compression garment with foam pads, doing everything doctor says.

Love my doctor! He just called to check on me before tomorrow morning's surgery. He is a perfectionist who always puts the patient first.
