Re: Tummy tuck
Jan 26, 2008
I had my TT done 3 months ago and never been happier with my stomach!!
I still wear my Spanx occassionally for extra comfort....sometimes you FEEL your tummy bulge is still there for some reason....but when you put on those "skinny" jeans for the first time it's an amazing feeling!!
As far as pain....it was nothing I couldn't handle and I have an extremely low tolerance to pain!! I had knee replacement in "05 that the rehab was 100 times worse pain. I had also had a hysterictomy and it made the TT feel like nothing!! The drainage tubes are a nusiance at first, but not painful !! I would do it again in a heartbeat!! I had lipo on my flanks along with the TT.
Ocassionally I feel a little "pull" if I lay a certain way and what's weird to me is that after I eat (too much) my stomach feels very stretched.....(let's me know I ate too much!! ;) and also my PS told me you have to remember that even though the outside stitches are gone and your tummy is flat, there was alot of work done inside to tighten the muscles and alot of stitches on the inside that take longer to heal !! So you go for it !!! you will be so glad you did!!!:angel:
