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!

Do you mind sharing the cost of your surgery, since you paid out of pocket?

Not at all. $8,400 for both procedures!

How long is the recovery?

Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using the BariatricPal App

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.

I think there are a few of us having plastics in January. My TT, breast lift with augmentation is 3 weeks from today.

Everyday I get a little more nervous. Having had brachioplasty in July, I struggled with burning, searing and itching for 3 straight weeks before it stopped. We beleive I had an allergy to the mesh bandages which are glued on. I do have allergies with some adhesives so it makes sense.

This time we are going to use a different solution and hopefully that itching will not be as bad. I cannot imagine what it will feel like if my nipples itch like that. I literally took cat naps for 3 weeks. As soon as they removed the mesh, the itching stopped. I slept with ice packs on both arms for many weeks.

I am very nervous but at the same time so excited to get rid of this gross hanging skin on my tummy and looking forward to getting my girls back. LOL.

When is your surgery? Mine is 1/19

My surgery is Monday 9th of January. I am having five procedures done and can stay in hospital a week thank goodness. I woke up last night worrying about it..... I have waited for this for such a long time and now its happening !! I have started watching youtube about the surgery I am having and about how people have felt in their recovery. I am researching what I might need in the first few weeks at home. .....Im totally crapping myself lol. BUT ! Bring it on, I say.

I have worked hard with my weight loss. Now its just the 'tidy up time'.

We will both be fine. I know it. Will be thinking of you xxx

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.
