I'm 5' tall and 112 lbs before surgery. I worked out and was fit. But I gained 65lbs during pregnancy which made my stomach really big and stretch marks were gross. Breasts sagged due to breastfeeding my daughter for years. Husband recommended the surgery a while back saying he destroyed my body and he will fix it, lol. I hesitated for a long time and finally decided that 2/18/11 Fri was THE day! Tummy tuck, flank lipo, pubic mons lipo, and breast aug. The next three days were a blur. Don't remember being in pain. Just remember bits and pieces of it. =) Took drain out Thurs 2/24/11 and sutures on areolas 2/29/11. Planning on abdominal suture removal 3/07/11. I already see how nice and flat my upper stomach would be. I have a line now that outlines my ab muscle! I do have swelling lower ab so I can't even put my old jeans on yet. I like how my breasts came out also. I had no disgusting drainage from lipo site or any fluid accumulation from ab. I will update my progress especially swelling. So far excellent!!! I should've done it way sooner.

It's been a little over 3 weeks and I feel...
This doctor is very meticulous and caring. He is very ethical. He actually turned down an arm lipo that I had wanted stating it wouldn't look good on me. He also told me scarring from breast lifts would not be worth going through it when I asked about it. None of the others (5 others) had declined those procedures. His bedside manner is very gentle also.
