I'm having a tummy tuck as well as lipo to my bra area and inner and outer thighs. My goal is to have my excess skin removed and my separated abdominal muscles stitched back together (my first child was nearly 10 pounds at birth). The lipo is to remove the fat that is left in my trouble areas. My stomach is my main concern, I've been looking forward to this for years!
I had surgery on Monday, the 17th. It had been two days and a lot of the soreness is gone. I had to have muscle repair, the soreness from that was worse than the incision. The incision doesn't bother me a whole lot, just some occasional stinging when I get up or down. I was able to see my stomach the day after surgery and I am so happy with the results so far! Dr. Poser did an amazing job! I know it will look worlds better when the swelling goes down. I don't have much bruising so far. I know you don't see the full result of lipo til about 2-3 months post op, but I really love the results of it so far especially on my back. This surgery was well worth it, I'm sure the pain will be a distant memory in a few weeks.
Day 4 Post Op
I'm able to move a lot more at this point, which is helpful. I'm pretty swollen now and can't wait for that to go down. I'm excited to see my final results, but I know that won't be for a couple months.

It's been about 10 weeks since my surgery and I feel great. Most of the soreness and swelling are gone. Now I'm focusing on getting my scar to fade quicker. Has anyone found an awesome scar minimizer?
