One year and a week or so post abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).

First pic is front view, normal

Second pic is side view, normal.

Third pic is side, sucked in.

Scars are still pretty evident, but look a lot lighter than before!

Happy St. Patty’s day!

6 month post TT scar progress.
So you can clearly see on my right side (picture’s left) the scarring is a lot thicker and darker and that’s from the hematoma. They had to reopen my entire right side a mere week after my tummy tuck because a ghastly sneeze caused a bit of internal bleeding. Womp womp.
So my doc prescribed me a bleaching cream to lighten the scar so we’ll see how that works.
Otherwise he said everything looks great!

“Are you concerned about getting pregnant after your tummy tuck? (I'm just assuming you want children because of your warm personality)”

—Anonymous

I’m concerned, but not really.

Of course that’s not to say that it won’t be on the back of my mind constantly when I do in fact get pregnant.

The way I see it (and according to my doctor) as long as I’m healthy and active I can avoid undoing the doc’s hard work. I’m sure a slight loosening of my tightened abdominal muscles is bound to happen, but I’m completely okay with it.

So yes, I do want kids and no, I won’t let my TT get in the way!

:) yay warm personality!

My belly button scar is starting to keloid.

I AM NOT HAPPY.

:(

Any tips to lessen this? I’m using bio oil, neosporin, coconut butter, and silicon scar strips…

One month post op

I forgot to tell you I just celebrated one month post op!

I saw my doc on Thursday and he said everything looked great. I can start exercising, sleeping how I want and be sans girdle in three weeks if I want to!

Of course I’ll ease back into working out and I’ll probably feel a bit more secure with my compression garment on. But, you better believe I’m going to sleep whatever damn way I want to in three weeks! :)

Day 18 Post Op - BEST DAY BY FAR

Reasons why:

  1. Drains out! It felt so weird when they pulled them out. I didn’t realize how far up the drains went. It didn’t hurt, but it felt mighty awkward. 
  2. I graduated from my compression belt and into Spanx! I have to wear this baby for the next month or so (I think). It has to cover my drain area and hips so I bought this cute boyshort onesie from Tar-jay equipped with crotch buttons and all! image
  3. I tried on a bikini and it was - wait did you read that right? YES YOU DID - a bikini, my friends. An itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot effing bikini, well minus the yellow polka dots. Okay I’m kind of lying - I tried on boy shorts and a bikini top, but it SO counts. Proof: image
  4. I bought the bottoms and two tops and I need your opinions as to which one I should keep (or both!) imageimage
  5. I got two new bras from Victoria’s Secret for $49 and they gave me $10 off and a free pair of panties, plus I had a gift card from Christmas so needless to say, win!

Anyways enough pictures of my body, I’m sure you guys are sick of it. Today was a very long day and my belly is telling me to go to bed and relax! 

Note to self: I re-he-he-eally have to work on my legs once I get back in the gym.

Day 17 Post Op.

Finally back down to the weight I was when I went in for surgery! Over the last 17 days I have gained and lost 15 lbs of swelling. 

Now let’s see if I can get down to 142 lbs (ish) that will be my pre op weight minus skin removed. :)

Feeling super skinny mini today! Maybe it’s all psychological now that I’m back to my pre-op weight. But even in my dad’s sweats and my compression binder I feel so much smaller than before! 

Now put a shirt on me (but I don’t wanna!) and my drains make me look all lumpy and frumpy. But, it’s the last full day of drains so I’m happy. Plus if the drains are good for one thing it’s reducing swelling.

I’m looking less and less like a tree trunk every day. At least I’m a schmexy tree trunk.

Well it’s Day 12 Post TT and Day 5 Post hematoma. 

All is going well. I’m sad about my bruised tummy and I hope it goes away fast. I’m still swollen and will be for what seems like FOREVER. But, I’m healing and feeling pretty good. 

I took another quick peak at my scar line and it is still gorgeous. I can’t wait until the tape is off next week and I can start the silicone strip treatment. Don’t even get me started on the drains…6 more days until they are out!
