24 days post op
TT - Stomach is flat however I do not like the scar... yet. It sticks out a bit too much for my liking and I hope it will still heal more.
Chin/Neck - Lipo of this area bruised real bad for about two weeks and now all bruising is gone. I still have lumps in my neck that I massage every day for a little bit. I wear my head wrap as much as I can day and night still. I only have to wear at night time now but I try to wear it when I'm in the house at all times.
Back/Hips - My back looks awesome, can't really tell the hips look any better but he had to do that area for my tummy tuck to look normal.
Overall - VERY happy with results and would def recommend.
I feel pretty normal, can walk up right much better now, however, after I sit for an extended period of time when I get up I am a bit bent over because I guess the skin retightens or something. Still feel a little pain in the middle of my tummy but nothing I can't handle and I know it will eventually all subside.
Questions - Wondering when my neck swelling will become normal, I hope these bumps/balls under my skin will subside.
Next appointment with Dr. is Jan 15th.

Cannot put a price on the confidence I feel today!!!
I am IN LOVE with my back at this moment in time.
I can't even believe the results that "back lipo" gave me. I was only concerned about my tummy going away. But my wonderful beautiful Dr. A and Lilly advised that I would really benefit from hip/back lipo so everything is asymmetrical. I of course agreed, but, this is just over the top unbelievable results. I am THRILLED I decided to spend the extra money and trust the judgement of Dr. A.
Its from the lipo + the TT pulling everything tighter, both those processes produces some unbelievable results.
I do love my tummy now too; but, I know its going to take time for the scar to heal completely and more swelling to subside. However, I'd do this 1000X again even if everything stayed as it is right now.
I have SO much confidence in myself that it has changed my attitude completely around. I can finally look at myself in the mirror and stand naked in front of my husband again. You cannot put a price on the confidence undergoing this procedure has brought to me and my husband and children can see me happy and normal again!
My hung over flabby stretch marked tummy is GONE!!!
My scar is healing nicely, but it's only been 4 weeks since my surgery.
It takes a good 8-12 months I believe for it to truly mature. But like I said, I'd take this over the way it was before and pay double!
If your Dr. makes suggestions all I can say is LISTEN to them and consider what they are saying… spend the extra money and do it all at once and I PROMISE you will be happy you did!
As for my neck lipo… I am very happy with the results so far.. I am waiting for the swelling/lumps to diminish, but again that will also take a few months for that to restore. But so far I like the results, my face as you can see in the picture looks very good and although I don't have my before pics to prove it, my neck from a side view looks 10X better than it did before.
I PROMISE to get before and after pics… all this noise I'm making really will speak high volumes once you see before an after pics.

Dr. Aldea is my favorite person in this world, I will NEVER forget him the rest of my life… truly, that may sound crazy but he really boosted my self confidence and this is very important to me. The best Dr. in the area for this procedure, when you meet him you can see the compassion and knowledge he has in his work. At consultation he does not hold back and spends the extra time speaking with you so you understand exactly what you are getting into. His staff (especially Lilly) is extremely helpful through the entire process pre and post op. I can not thank them enough and can't imagine going to anyone else for the procedure. I would go back to him 10x + if I had to do it again.
