Had an extended tummy tuck 2 1/2 months ago. I did what I was told such moving around, low salt, good diet, and wearing girdle 2-3 mons. Verything is going well, less swollen but a long way to go. Dr Ortega was talented, funny, and sincere. The office was busy, but they post an emergency # for post op. I did much readingfor my own concerns. Pls write a list of questions ready on the last day you see him. Also put on a girdle the last day u see him so you would know if it is tied enough for u. Overall, I am very happy with my surgery and will be back for the boobs. BTY, I had some troubles with the admission lady Jessica. She didn't take care all the paperwork properly, and ended up changing my day twice.
