39, Mom of Teen and Ready to Take 40 Up a Notch As a Duran Doll! - Dominican Republic

I am getting a TT, Lipo with fat transfer for BBL, and breast reduction and lift. I have hated my body all of my life and I have been stalking realself and doing research on doctors since I joined. I am finally on the road to surgery and sent in my deposit to book with Dr. Duran. I am looking to meet any one from New Jersey that is planning their trip for the end of June 2016. I am over joyed to finally be able to wear a body I am proud of...

My official date is now July 7th.

In order to accommodate my son's school schedule I had to change my surgery date to the 7th of July. I am super excited. But need help.

What type of "faja" is the best to buy!? Why do I need post-pregnancy maxi pads? And is anyone traveling from NYC/NJ in the first week of July and staying at Maria RH? I am already booked and plan to arrive earlier that week and stay with family till my surgery date.

Intramuscular hematoma (rectus abdominis)

I have had a number of things happen during my recovery process. I decided to have my procedures done by a surgeon here in NYC, on June 22, 2016. I had a breast lift/reduction, tummy tuck (what a disaster) liposculpture with fat grafting (laughable) and Brazilian butt lift (that you can't see improvement or contouring on). During recovery I developed an intramuscular hematoma, which the radiologist read to be 6cm long and level in the muscle. My surgeon read the report and said it would resolve itself.

I have now had this very painful, very swollen, debilitating hematoma in my abdomen for over a month and none of the symptoms have resolved.

I do not sit, stand, sleep, bend, turn, etc., with any type of ease or comfort. My core mobility is hindered by both pain and pressure. As a result of my own research I began to use compresses and restarted wearing compression garments (which my surgeon/pa recommended I stop using when a hole at the TT incision became infected and would not heal {this is still resolving}). I try and rest, but it is impossible to completely rest ones core.

All of this said... I NEED HELP!!! What type of Doctor should I be seeing and what can I do NOW to relieve the pain, swelling, bulging, and pressure?

Getting in contact with someone in the office requires practice. Lol. Once I got through it has been pretty smooth, and the girls at Dr. Duran's office are efficient, considerate, and detailed. I am a native Spanish speaker, so I have the advantage of communicating in an exchange that is familiar. I just sent my deposit in and am waiting for date confirmation for my procedures.
