I have wanted to have a tummy tuck for many years. I had the extra skin and stretch marks as a result of having two large kids however I was extremely apprehensive about having the surgery (the pain, recovery time was my main concern). I did some research online I read that Dr. Mark Epstein performed tummy tucks without drains and a pain pump. I went to Dr. Mark Epstein’s office in August of 2012 and I knew that I wanted him as my surgeon.
I had my surgery yesterday December 12, 2012 and I am 1 day post op and I feel a tad bit soar and a little uncomfortable but that is the extent of pain. Yesterday 4 hours after my surgery I felt fine I was able to walk around with mild discomfort.
Lastly, I have to say I am happy with my decision to have the tummy tuck and lipo of the flanks although I have a little swelling I can see the improvements to my body already.
