High Tension Tummy Tuck ~ 47 Years Old, 2 Adult Children, Liposuction, Tummy Tuck, Navel Hernia Removed and Inner Thigh Lipo

Although I am 6 weeks post op, I will share what motivated me to get plastic surgery. Prior to my Plastic surgery, this year I started gaining weight in my mid-section rapidly, after a visit to my OBGYN, learned I was experiencing perimenopause and weight gain in the mid-section is common. Therefore, I came to the conclusion that I would never get rid of the extra skin on my lower abdomen and achieve that flat tummy with the tight abdominal muscles I worked so hard for since given birth to my two children, 22 years’ ago, resulting in two C-sections and a navel hernia. In addition, I gained two fat pockets in my inner thighs throughout the years. Such experiences prompt me to contact Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Younai.

High Tension Tummy Tuck, and Liposuction. 7 weeks Post Op continue to be very swollen (48 years old and going through perimenop

Because of my swelling, I wasn't going to post any pictures. However, per request, I decided to post a few. My swelling varies, depending on how active I am. I tend to swell up and get bloated rather easy as well. My swelling maybe do to perimenopause and my age (being older causing my swelling a little longer to subside). However, 7 weeks is still early post op. Therefore, I expect swelling. I just need to continue to monitor my activeness, sodium intake, what I eat and drink. I drink Alkaline water, I use Palmer's CoCo Butter Oil, I drink Arnica Tea which is good for swelling, I drink Prune juice as a natural laxative, I took Arnica Forte suggested by Dr. Younai which, took my bruising away in the 1st week. Dr. Younai checked for fluid. There is no fluid. I will post better pictures as I continue to heal. My current results actually look better then these pictures that I've posted. I will post more at the end of this week. Hope they are helpful.

~ Today, 7 Week Post Op ~ 48 Years Old

I am still very swollen. However, it's still early since my surgery, 7 weeks Post Op. The only thing you use on my incision, stomach and back is; Palmer's Coco Butter oil Formula. I intend on using Scarr Away in a couple of weeks. As of now, I drink Arnica tea, Alkaline water with electrolyte, 1 cup of heated up Prune juice ( 1or 2x's a week). Dr. Younai recommended benadryl when I was itching like crazy (my itching was due to the nerve endings reconnecting, I believe). I make sure to use oil and don't scratch (pat the area) so that I don't get stretch marks. I am now wearing a medium size 2nd stage garment. I transition from a extra large full-body garment (cut of at the knees) right after my surgery.
Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Sean Younai is an amazing plastic surgeon. He was friendly and patient with me as he showed and explain to me what bodywork was needed during my consultation. If I could give him more then five stars I would. Dr. Younai performed liposuction on my flanks, lower back, lateral chest, inner thighs, tummy tuck and hip lift. He has a great personality, as well as his receptionist Linda and assistant, Denise. I would recommend my mother to him, that's how much I appreciate his work.
