Tummy Tuck /Brazilian Butt/Lipo on Body and Neck.

I am almost 3 months post-op. I'm happy the tummy...

I am almost 3 months post-op. I'm happy the tummy tuck but it is not completely even. On the upper part of my stomach it slightly bulges more on the right and the lower stomach it bulges slightly more on the left...don't know why??? I asked about it after 2 weeks post-op and the nurse said it was even just after surgery while I was on the table...so no concrete answer was given to explain why. I hope that in 1 yr it will even out but not sure. The butt is ok, but I naturally have a really big butt and I simply wanted to change the shape (make it more curvey and less square) not get a bigger butt. I also pushed for more lipo on my thighs before surgery and Dr Macias was resistant ( so that disappointed me) as I was dreaming about going down at least one pant size. Despite the TT/BBL and lipo I am still wearing the same size clothes. My stomach does look good! He also did a great job on the neck lipo. However people I know did not remark a change when they saw me after 2 months, I did not tell them what I did. A few have said, after I asked if I look different, they said I appear to have a flatter stomach and my face area looks fresher. So that was fine for me. The operation is a huge deal and you'll need a lot of help from others after it is done (so don't under estimate it) you need to take a month off of work, seriously. It took 2 months for me to recover to about 70% energy level, almost 3 months to be 85%. I could not stand straight for 7 weeks. It is a long recovery perhaps because I'm 53 yrs old. Overall, I satisfied by the TT and Neck Lipo, a bit less with the BBL and lipo on legs.

Thanks for the Amen!

Hello Yaadie, your comments are very constructive, encouraging and positive. It is really hard for me to do good selfies. I'll see if I can add a better one (or more) as you suggested. Otherwise, thanks again for your Florida sunshine, I'll take that. XOX
