Hi ladies, I have been following this site for over a year now. I have learned about what to possibly expect during my recovery. I have decided to share my experience as well in hopes that it will help someone in the future.
I'm 55 , 209lbs. My goal is to get under 200lbs. before surgery. I have one son (36) and three grands (15, 13 &9). I have been to four consultations before I decided on Dr. Fee. My lab work is scheduled March 5. I will add photos soon. I will keep you posted. Ttyl
The worst photos ever
Hi RS, I went to pre op March 5. My weight is 221lbs, height 5'10" . I have lost inches but, not weight . I had my EKG done March 7th. I am ready for surgery. I feel excited and nervous at the same time. But, it's too late to rethink this. My greatest fear is recovery. The big day is March 13th. I believe that I have everything I need. I picked up my meds March 6th. I will keep you all posted.
Tomorrow is my big day
Good morning ladies, here are most of the items I have already. I am going out today to get a few more things. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I have prepared several meals. My brother will be here to help me. Two girl friends will come by after work to help me as well. I am so excited!
I made it to the flat side
I'm finally feeling good enough to update. Dr. Fee and staff was awesome. All I remember day of treatment is being prepared for surgery. Then walking me to the car. All days up to now has been sleep, walk, sleep and walk. I had an appointment the next day so the doctor can check my incision. He explained, the work he had done and how much skin he removed.
This morning I woke up feeling so much better. I'm off pain meds as of day three. My next followup appointment is Wednesday. I will post pics soon. Wishing well to all that's about to have surgery and continuous prayers to those in recovery. Ttyl Rs
5 days post op
Good evening RS, each day does get better. I can walk without the walker more. I feel a little better than I did yesterday (yay me). A friend came by to check on me so, I was able to get her to take a few pics. I have a lot of swelling but, this too shall past.
Day 12 post op
Hi ladies, I had last drain removed yesterday. It did not hurt. I also had a few stitches removed. This is a pic of what my incision looks like today. My doctor said, it's nothing to worry about so I am hoping not to have much of a healing problem . Swelling is improving and I plan to update pics soon. My prayers are with all present and future tummy tuck ladies. Ttyl

I'm back to work. I'm very happy with my body. Swelling is bad at the end of my day. But, this was the only time I have someone available to take pics. Dr. Fee and his team is AWESOME. My journey wasn't easy due to so much liposuction. But, it was so worth it. I love love love my body. I'm walking thirty minutes, five days a week now. I'm feeling great.
