A little background: 43, two kids 14 and 11. I am 5'2 and 130 pounds. I am happy with my body in general except the little extra fat around my belly. After much research and consultations with several surgeons, I decided to go with Dr. Watts in Perth.
Dec. 27th 2015/One month update: initial two days are the hardest. Coughing or sneezing makes it 10 times more painful. But the rest of the recovery process is very manageable. Drains have been removed within a week. Back pain lasted about two weeks due to the hunched back. But it quickly goes away once you can stand up straight. I still feel the tightness but I know it is normal. Swelling is still present. It is better in the morning most of the days.
So far I like what I see, will continue to update until I see the final results.
