Belly button hurting a little bit. May be a stitch trying to come out? Going to Dr tomorrow. Also I have started my lymphatic massages, tomorrow is number three. I think it has helped with swelling. I am very pleased with my results thus far. I went from a size 14 to a size 10 in pants. Dr Tehrani is a great surgeon. He has changed my body and I love it! Here are some recent pictures

New York Plastic Surgeon

Dr Glickman is very nice and has a lot of great reviews. He was actually my second consultation and I felt most comfortable with him.
