I am 47 years old. 5' tall and weigh 120. I finally lost 50pds this past year. My reward was a tummy tuck! Now I'm 6 weeks post full tummy tuck with extensive muscle repair!!!!! I have had no true complications at all. The pain though was so much worse then I expected. I had 2 C-section 19+ years ago so I thought I knew what to expect!! Boy was I wrong!!!!! My daughter stayed on the main floor with me for the first few days and nights! What a blessing she was!!!!!! The first day I was able to where my capris but on the 3rd day post op I couldn't even make it up my thighs!! Now I'm at 6 weeks post op and the swelling is just starting to go down but I feel very fat!!!!!!!!!!!! My clothes are tight and I am up 5 pounds!!!! I am going to start light exercising this week. I can't wait!!!!!! I wish I would of found this site sooner!!! I have been getting depressed re: the swelling. I feel so much better after reading that so many other people have it too!!!!! I will keep you posted on my progress. I went back to work after 3 weeks. I highly recommend 6 to 8 weeks off!!!!!

I am now 4 months post surgery and my swelling is almost gone but I do need a revision!!!!! I rather need some more skin cut off than have necrosis though. I am not upset with my surgeon because I am so small and I had sooo much skin. My pastic surgeon played it safe. I had twins almost 20 years ago and they stretch me to the limit!!!! I was 57" round and 60" tall!!!!!!! I started back at the gym a few weeks ago. I still can't do any abdominal w ork outs but YOGO has been awesome for me. The stretching feels amazing!
