After 6 years of complaining I finally decided to just go for it. My first child is six years old. She did a number on my abdomen. She made it ugly lol. My second child made it big. So now it's big and ugly. My third child just added some ugly touches to it. Needless to say I need assistance. I met with the Dr today for the second time and scheduled my appointment for Wednesday July 22, 2015. I'll add some before photos soon

Informed consent papers got me a little nervous

I'm exactly 2 weeks away from my surgery. I was not really nervous anymore until I read over the consent documents again reading all of the possible risk and complications. I'm just praying that everything goes very well. Photos soon

9 days away

Only 9 days away for my procedure. It's coming so quickly. It doesn't feel real I'm so use to this body I can't imagine how it's going to feel when it's changed. Here are the hideous before photos????

Day 1 post op

I'm doing very well it's unbelievable how good I feel. I mean don't get me wrong it's pain but I'm not crying lol it's tolerable. More pressure than pain. I tried to lay in the bed and almost had a heart attack NOW THAT WAS VERY PAINFUL. I only can sit in a chair no bed for me any time soon. I will post pictures very soon.

Doing well

I'm feeling good today. Just very tight.

Day 2 post op

I'll try to post better pictures in a few days

5 days post op

I'm still doing well. There is minimal pain. I'm up and moving around nicely. My one drain to scheduled to come out on this Thursday. I have not graduated to the bedroom yet still on the sofa.

1 week post op visit

Garment and 1 drain

Side by side

12 days post-op

Drain removal

Ok so I just got my drain out today. All I can say is OUCHHHHH. That was painful. Did not realize that it went all the way across my abdomen. Probably the most discomfort (for me ) through this entire process. The tummy tuck pain was very tolerable. I am so happy that I only had one drain

Mall run

So I went to the mall today. I must say trying on clothes was exciting(it use to be depressing). I have so many more Options and this is just the beginning.
