I am 26 and have 4 kids. I've always had the loose skin since after my first born but it just got worse after my 4th kid. Done exercising and dieting and none seems to work. One day I decided I want a tummy tuck. Went to a few consultations and decided to schedule for a tt right away.
Had the tt done on august 9 2010. The ps was absolutely honest and great. He made me feel comfortable. Woke up from surgery with no pain. Just felt groggy and sleepy. The next day I felt a bit of pain but it wasn't so bad. I'm on day 13 post op and only had taken pain med twice and that was on the first 2 days. I'm still walking hunched over which sucks. Still have quite a bit of swelling right above the incision line. Had drained tubes in for 8 days. The worse part of the recovery was getting the drained plugs pulled out of me. The worse pain I've ever felt. Up til this day I still have fluid coming out of one side of the holes where one of the tubes was. Now I can't wait til 6 weeks so I can finally stop wearing the binder for good.
So far I am really happy with my result. I just wish the road to recovery was faster and better.
