53 Yrs Very Excited I'm Finally Doing It! - Stoneham, MA

Getting a tummy tuck- almost circumferential,...

Getting a tummy tuck- almost circumferential, liposuction, fat transfer to tear trough and bottom. I was initially scheduled to have this procedure April of 2014 but 2 weeks prior to the date I had a hypertensive crisis. My blood pressure was reading 270/180. Crazy. I survived this and a tumor was found on my adrenal gland. It was the probable cause. I had it removed instead of my tummy tuck. My blood pressure is way way better now. I only take one pill now and will be stopping that soon too. Fast forward to now. Finally getting it done. Woohoo!!!!!

day 3 post op

1st week done

Went to first postop yesterday. Things look good. A little ischemia to belly button but he says tissue underneath is good. Not worried just may slough I'm a little as symmetrical in the hips/waist. Way to soon to tell anything is permanent. I'm not worried. Lots of swelling which is the way it is for a while. Still have my drains. They are draining a lot. Not bothering me. Pain lots better have not needed a pain pill all day for the first time. Took a couple last night. Will probably take some tonight. Sleeping well in the recliner. Diet is good. Just have a constant tightness throughout abdomen and vulva. Breathing getting better. Dr says take it easy this week can take short walks during day. That's it. Going back next Thursday to check on drains. Love the low scar/ incision in front. Here are a few pics. Not great but hopefully you can see a little progress. Hope you are all healing well you awesome ladies! Love ya
