Album Description

12/7 I am so happy I did this but the swelling post-op was much more than I had expected. PS says it takes 6 weeks for 80% of swelling to subside. Patience!! I will continue to post more photos as I progress, 11 days out right now and I am happy but wish I could see the final product after swelling subsides!
12/12 I LOVE IT! I woke up this morning and for the first time, while I had minimal AM swell, I absolutely love my tummy and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. There is still significant swell each day as the day progresses but I can see that when it is over I am going to love it. FIRST WOW MOMENT! :)
12/27- One month, two days post op. I am finally seeing much of the swelling subside. I started being able to sleep on my side at about week 3 which was a great relief. I can wear a couple of pairs of my pre-op jeans but I am very uncomfortable by mid-day. I wear my binder at night and sometimes during the day but for the most part switched to a control garmet from Target similiar to spanks. For anyone considering Lipo of flanks and love handles I have posted some of my pics side by side. I am very glad I did it. I am becoming more and more happy with my TT and Lipo results, I don't regret it one bit, I am soooooo happy I did this!

I am 7 weeks post op and I am still swollen on my belly, more at the end of the day and if I have had too much sodium. I wear my CG 24-7. You look great though!

You to are also having wonderful results. Love those AM pics. Time will make it all better just keep taking care of yourself and don't do to much during the day.

Hey, I didn't realize that you did not have lipo. So no, I did not have any swelling in my back. Only the incision and MR areas well and pubic zone. You look great though.
