I had my TT on April 30th 2012. My Doctor was very awesome and I'm very satisfied with my results. Never felt any real pain. Sleeping was a little uncomfortable,wish I had got a recliner like most of the other ladies. However I'm still have swelling and some fluids on my stomach. My Doc informed me that it could take anywhere from 6 to 9 months for full results. I'm kind of scard to get back out and exercise from reading some horror stories. Before tuck I was walking 3 to 4 miles three times a week. I plan to get back out there this weekend and join the gym. Over all very happy with results so far. Can't wait to get in my jeans again and get out of this Binder. Current using Mederma on my scar. How were you ladies feeling after 7 weeks?

Hello world, I am 10 weeks post op as of today....

Hello world, I am 10 weeks post op as of today. I'm feeling pretty good. Still have some swelling mostly at the end of the day. I'm still wearing my binder or spanks like my Doc ask me to for 12 weeks. I went to a family bbq this Saturday and had a couple margaritas. I almost forgot I was still recovering when I danced in the soul train line. My stomach then remind me that I need to slow it down. So I sat my butt down, It was a good feeling just to forget for a lil while. I felt almost like my old self. My stomach still gets really tight at times and swells up. I'm going to Hawaii in 3 weeks and hope swelling goes down a little more. I brought two bikinis and I still plan to wear them with some cover ups. I dont't want to start with a flat tummy and then I'm swoll again. I switched to Bio Oil to treat scar and use on my belly. I was using the strips but from the directions. You have to wash them everyday and let them dry. To much work for me so the Bio oil will work for now. My incision is a perfect cut and I know in time it will heal on its own anyway. Well thats my update. Let me go see what everyone else is talking about.
Bay Area Plastic Surgeon

A friend of mine referred me to him. When I went in for consultation I was sold. Did some reseach for him and another Doctor. Choose him and I'm very satisfied. I will refer my friends also.
