Just got back from my postop! 6 pounds of skin removed which is hard to imagine. I get an "A" from the surgeon on how well I'm doing. I saw my belly button for the first time and he removed the stitches from it. I go back Thursday to have my drains out. I stopped pain meds Saturday and have been talking tylenol as needed. I've been able to go out for little walks, etc.

So happy that I had this done!! I can't believe how good it feels to not have the skin there!!

So today is 5 weeks out from surgery and I could not be happier with the results. Still have some swelling as expected. Overall I'm doing great and feeling good. I can comfortable wear jeans but still having a hard time fitting into my suit pants but that'll ease off as the swelling goes down. I'd do this again in a heartbeat! [emoji106]

How long were you off work? I have a TT and arm lift in November and took 2.5 weeks off.

@mousecat88 I was off 2 1/2 weeks and then worked from home for 2 weeks. I'm glad I was able to work from home... was able to wear joggers and be comfy while I continued to heal.

I'm a little over 11 weeks out and healing really well. More swollen on the left than the right. Extremely happy with the results so far!!

It's totally weird not having my gut or loose skin someones. I was so used to it. I wake up and feel like I'm missing something, go figure. 🤷‍♂️ Although, it's awesomely nice tucking in shirts and wearing belts without stuffing fat or skin in!
