Album Description

I had a TT with no MR. I had a little lipo of my waist & i/o thighs - 2 liters total. I didn't have as much lipo as I would have liked on my outer thighs but I think the surgeon used discretion to avoid sagging of my skin. I am 46 yo & the elasticity is not that great. Better safe than sorry & I'm grateful for that!
My TT was a faliure. You cannot tell by these photos because they are only a few weeks po and I'm still very swollen in these pics. But once the swelling went down what was left is horrible. I have not posted photos because they are quite embarrassing. Plastic Srugeons should warn you that plastic surgery doesn't always work. All possible outcomes should be discussed - and wheter you can live with them should be discussed as well. What I have now is far worse than what I had pre plastic surgery. He gathered way too much skin into too small an incision and I can't even explain how bad it looks. For one, I have a deep crease running perpenidicular from my incision up to my bellybutton. My tummy looks like a babys butt. I have so much skin in the inner third of my incision that it puffs out farther than my tummy did pre surgery. My skin is actually pulling into the center of my incision on a 45 degree angle. I paid thousands for a tummy that looks far worse than it did before. And I can't afford to have it redone. They're not kidding when they tell you not to judge your results for at least 3 months. Mine got worse with every day. Some of the puckers on my stomach are about 3 inches! I am reserving posting the surgeons name hoping that he will have the compassion to fix this. I won't make it if he doesn't. I couldn't live with my stomach the way it was before surgery so it is ludicrous to think I can come to terms with it the way it is now. Could I have done that, I would have done that before surgery and saved thousands - all the money I had. It's amazing how they are all for
