I'm just a few days out, scared nervous and excited. I have lots of questions concerns lol. I've wanted this shortly after I had my child. I gained 80 pounds with my pregnancy. I'm 5"6 and 80 pounds is a lot in 9 months. Reading everyone's reviews and seeing your pictures has helped me out so much. I think it's important to have this support
It's done!! At home recovering
Today is Friday , I had the surgery Wednesday morning and it's painful but I am slowly feeling better. So hard to find a comfortable position. Constipation... Well that struggle is very real and can be very painful.
Pics coming soon
When I'm feeling a little better , I will upload pics
Finally was able to shower and it was amazing , could not have done it without my husband. He has been a huge help. I'm walking a little better , still not close to standing up strait tho
Day 5 po
Emotional roller coaster with bad side of headache. My hair has not been washed in days. I miss my bed a lot
I am so swollen and my belly looks giant lol. When does the swelling start to subside?
Better each day
This was definitely a journey and a process , something I've always wanted since I gave birth. I am great fil for this site as everyone on here is very inspiring and quite helpful. I am 6 days post op and have had my questions and a couple emotions. My husband has been my biggest hero. He came thru for me like I never would have dreamed. At the same time this site has been a good back bone too. I am so eager to see the new me after I'm healed a little bit more :-)

Good news- went to check up today and one drain was removed!! Yay!! I'm bathing myself, driving myself, cooking dinner. I'm definitely recovering well. The only down side is I am Very Swollen. I think I may need a few bigger bottoms to get me thru the next couple months ;)

5 weeks po tummy tuck Ga
So Wednesday was my 5 weeks since my tt. I have a pic of my incision , I have had a pretty good recovery so far, however this week I have been super tired and swollen. I thought I'd post the pic because I enjoying everyone else's help and advice along this long journey
36 years old tt no lipo
I'm excited about my progress but it's been a long journey. I'm 5 weeks po and still can't lay flat for too long and still have major upper swelling
Almost 7 weeks po tt- no lipo
Hi, I'm almost 7 weeks post op from tt. I see a huge difference in before and after surgery. However I swell soooo much. I'm only walking 5000 plus steps a day , seems to help but I feel so pregnant with a bulge lol. I can't wait for the swelling to go away. I've never really worn the compression garmet as my doc did not recommend it.
7 weeks bb
I think it's closing up some not sure. Does anyone do the ear plug in the belly button?
Update tomorrow is 8 weeks
So recovery is slow but definitely moving along. I've been riding my bike some, walking some & the elliptical a small bit. Still have burning in right side and bulge in upper stomach mostly in evening. I tried jogging some but it feels so weird
8 weeks, I'm sitting down , happy with results but swelling is no joke
9 weeks exactly today
Finally broke down and bought jeans, 2 different sizes because I have faced major swelling in the evening. However these past few days , the smaller size fits in the evening!! This is a major breakthrough ;)
I decided to lay on my tummy tonight for first time and managed 5 mins b 4 it felt too weird
It's hard workout
So as of Wednesday I'm 9 weeks po from tt without lipo. I did a 45 minute workout with a tight spanx on. It was not as bad as I thought it would be. I'm proud of myself. I look forward to tomorrow's workout

I'm 10 weeks po and am slowing gaining weight , it sucks it's absolutely depressing. Feel like I was bed ridden for a month almost sitting on my butt goinging a couple. Then I was well enough to move around , weight and inches going down. Back to work I went and sitting on my butt again does not help
