    The recovery process is so interesting. Even almost 6 weeks post op I still get little shooting nerve pains, mostly only in one area from my tummy tuck. My bottom TT incision is still hard as a rock. If you felt it through my shirt you'd think I have rock-hard abs. My incision under my right breast are still really hard as well. I massage the incisions daily as instructed. I lather myself with coconut oil during my morning shower. I use Arnica and Mederma at night before bed. I've grown to enjoy sleeping in my Genie bra. It's so comfy. I've noticed my boobs have finally started to drop a little. They still look fantastic, just not the swollen, hard Barbie boobs I had when I woke up. Now they are soft, perky Barbie boobs. HW 290+/SW 261/GW 160/CW 159

    2-3 weeks depending on individual healing. I personally needed 3 weeks off of work because I struggle with anesthesia. It takes a long time to clear my system. My incisions look fantastic after 3 weeks though. I'll be 4 weeks post op on Monday and I'm now dealing with shooting nerve pain in my breasts. Icing them down helps but obviously can't do that at work. Plastic surgeon said this is normal and should get better as nerves reattach and heal. HW 290+/SW 261/GW 160/CW 159

    Not at all. $8,400 for both procedures! HW 290+/SW 261/GW 160/CW 159
  11. I have small hands and wrists but I have some giant boney hips and a huge ribcage. I'm a full hourglass. I measure 41/31/41 AT goal weight after tummy tuck and breast lift. When my dad had shoulder surgery the surgeon told him he had big bones (Dad isn't overweight). I also have very broad shoulders and very muscular legs unlike my mom who is very short and petite and has twiggy legs. I basically got Dad's build with Mom's curves. People never believe me when I tell them I weigh 160. They say I look like I weigh 130-140. Sent from my iPad using the BariatricPal App

    Foodie Life Post-op

    Actually, I still make the same quantity but I freeze half for easy weeknight meals. I love it! It makes life so much easier. I also love to cook a base meat like an entire chicken or pork butt and then create different meals throughout the week with the meat. Tacos, Soup, frittatas, etc. It forced me to be more creative.

    The tape FINALLY came off of my stomach! The incisions look great. The only area that isn't perfect is at the T-junction for my vertical incision. It still looks a bit scabby but even then it should be near invisible a year from now. He did such a beautiful job. Now I want my arms and bra line done. I'm going to start saving up again!
