35 Year Old, 3 Kids (One Set of Twins) Tummy Tuck, Lipo and Fat Injection to the Buttocks - Duluth, GA

I have wanted to get this procedure for years, so...

I have wanted to get this procedure for years, so I decided to just do it:) So far so good, I just had the surgery yesterday and it already looks amazing. The pain has been pretty uncomfortable but hopefully that will begin to subside soon. Can't wait to see what it looks like in a week or two. I have some swelling and drainage, the pain is mostly coming from the fat injection and stomach muscles I think. I turned my recliner into a makeshift hospital bed, it's works great with some pillow and sheets.

Not feeling too much better...

I feel icky, maybe it's the pain meds, I'm trying to take myself off of them. But I do hurt still a good bit. Tummy feels uncomfortable and seems to tighten on its own, my back where the lipo was performed and my butt where the incisions are feel sore and uncomfortable. I don't feel like I've gotten much better, if at all, I'm supposed to return to work in a few days, there is no way I can do that drive like this for sure. Has anyone else had this hard of time? Should I be doing something differently? I most sit In a recliner and try to sleep, although bits difficult with the mess, I try to walk laps around my downstairs several times a day.

And like that, I feel much better...

Well, as bad I felt yesterday, i feel tons better today! First shower, first post op visit,
One drain out and on my way ton recovery! Still really really swollen but that's to be expected. Super excited about the what everything looks/feels like a week from now:)

Just trying to take it day by day...

Feeling better everyday:)

The swelling is still really bad and I'm ready to start working out again so I don't start putting on the pounds from being sedentary. But, I am a lot more mobile and feel tons better:)

So swollen but getting better everyday

Well, at least my movement and ability to stand up straight is almost 100%. Still tight and hard to lay down and get up from a lying position. Sitting for long periods suck, but waking is good. If only the swelling would just go away!

Swell swell, go away....

Well, sometimes the swelling goes down enough at the top of my tummy that I can see how flat it will be, eventually, when the swelling subsides....even when sitting it's flat! I'm so happy about this:)

3 weeks post op

I am loving my new tummy!

Getting a little better everyday

Swelling is down a lot in the morning or after I lay down for awhile. Pain is getting better. And sometime it looks amazing:)
