I had a tummy tuck and breast lift with implants....

I had a tummy tuck and breast lift with implants. The tummy tuck was my main goal but after discussing the breast lift with my surgeon, I decided to have a lift with implants, also. I didn't really want larger breasts, though I think I'll be somewhere between a 36C and 36D when all is said and done, a lift without implants can actually make your breasts look smaller and they won't have that nice curvature on top, which is possible with implants. My implants are small--less than 300 cc each--different sizes which does help the asymmetry.

Back to work in 10 days, wearing my roomier jeans, incisions look very precise (still have stitches and steri strips), no drain tummy tuck (way to go!) I'm still somewhat swollen, more so by end of day but managed pain which was primarily in core area for first week with percocet during the day and flexeril or valium at night. Be prepared for constipation first three days or so post op. Still more comfortable sleeping in recliner with legs up. Now taking Bromelain and Arnica which are homeopathic ways to reduce swelling and bruising. Also eat a lot of pineapple.

Will be on the beach two weeks from now. Won't see full results for some time yet but am pleased with results so far.

Dr. V is one of the few plastic surgeons who does the no drain tummy tuck. This requires stitching the interface of the skin along the incision line (something like that) and my incision looks so much better than many of pictures I've seen on the web. Dr. V is double board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS, and the American Board of Surgery (ABS, This is a must to have a surgeon who is board certified! I interviewed one guy who insisted he was board eligible but just didn't have time to get certified--huge red flag for such a major surgery as an abdominoplasty. Also, Dr. V's staff is fantastic!
