I always knew I would do some type of surgery to get rid of the stretch marks, then decided the LBL would be the best procedure for me. I am a week out so the complete verdict is out. So far I am very pleased, I go tomorrow for my first post op and hoping the drains will come out. I will post my before pic later.

Tummy before Body Lift

Taped up but healing nicely


Alright.....weekly the incision tape is changed and the belly button is changed daily. So I thought I would take a photo for you all without the tape to see the progress so far.

No more upper tummy bulge

At my doctors visit on Thursday he removed several cc's of fluid from the area again, and this time it is actually flat. The last visit it did not completely remove the bulge which had me concerned. The doctor stated that because of the amount of fluid removed he felt confident it was a seroma. It is really good to see my tummy without the abnormality. Will upload new pics later...

New pic

Almost a year....

I'm still loving my body without the stretch marks and extra skin. The swollen area is still there, we've come to year conclusion that the sutures probably came a loose early after the surgery so hopefully in time the muscle will heal. I still experience swelling, I really thought that would be gone but I'm still happy.
