  1. Thanks Elle. Im not sure thus pic loaded properly. But here is a close up
  2. It has been some time between posting now. So Hi.... I just wanted to recap for anyone thinking TT and about the process and healing. Also not all scars are red and huge (This was my main thing that stopped me from having proceedure done years ago. Boy are there some BAD!!! pictures out there) Tummy tucks are not the best idea if you still have more weight to lose. What I mean is its not a quick fix. I had a muscle repair and some skin removed but no new belly button as mine was quite high to start with. I was quite athletic before. So for me personally I needed my muscle use back. The recovery is slow and excercise at the gym very limited. So this being said i actually gained 5 kg for 9 months. At 12month post op i can only just now say my swelling has decreased. But still on ab training days it swells up like bad pms. I also want to review my scar is very slim and i have always done vitamin e oil twice a day. And did dermarolling once a week. Keep fixamol tape on for ages after surgery and Use silicon gel as PS says is ok. And dont train abs for at least 8 months. Worth it 100% Fixed back pain and bowel problems. Lose the weight first then fix the skin 100% Never plan to have kids after. Do all that before. Thoses little munchkins reck more than your tummy!!! So you may need your boobs done too. As you can see my original ba was ruined after 2 babies. Its not worth a quick fix as abdominal fat will always come back if your diet is not in check. Spend the money get a good surgon as a bad scar will be mentally debilitating after all the pain you go through to get a nice flat tummy. My surgon did an amazing job and Im very happy. X ps you have to zoom right in to see scar. Best wishes and surgery to you all. Message if you need answers. I finally have reach 11 months and can only just say im off the roller coaster. X

    POST OP CARE AFTER MUMMY MAKEOVER

    Im sure Kazza would agree with me but apart from the swelling and the time it takes to get back into normal routines without making swelling worse. I dont regret it at all. It really is worth it in the long run. Also i am so happy with boobs and i think that helps make me feel better over all. I will take some pics maybe tomorrow when the swelling goes down...been over doing it with laboring 💪.....even my thighs are swollen and puffy from today. @Miss77 i have to wear fixamal tape on my scars up to week 12!!! I think it must be helping because its looking really flat and not to red. Im just doing everything that dr tells me to do. I still even wear my post op bra to bed just for extra boob support. I think i will do this untill week 12 too. I did put a pic in my gallery yesterday but its not very good. It was after a big day so its swollen in the middle. Doesn't look like anything to be excited about however in the mornings i look like a new person! Have you got any 8 mth pics @Kazza ?

    POST OP CARE AFTER MUMMY MAKEOVER

    Well hello Girls hows things.? Yeap @Chan7710 still swollen. I think i feel fatter than before. Only when i wake up its flat so cant complain to surgeon that something is wrong. Just like to let you girls know not to over do it. I am back at gym and doing pump class. However i get really swollen and sore next day!!!! I squat 30 kg during pump squat track but had been easing into it....so i got back to my normal weights on monday and felt ok. So i am at 9 weeks this week. Still No abs training or chest. However i am finding that i weigh more than before. And i think from lack of excercise for 6 weeks and still haven't done cardio yet. I have been labouring physically redecking my pontoon with hardwood...and last night had a really sore lump near where my belly button used to be! I hope i havnt given myself hernia. Its gone down a bit this morning but I have put my tummy brace back on to be careful today. My back has been extreamly sore at night for the last few weeks too. I have been seeing chiro and they say its the body realigning to new muscles. So brought a new mattress anyway as excuse to hubby😋. It has only just started improving. Will post pic this week. I still have tape on scar but its looking good...only i had an ingrown hair on scar line and it got a scab on it cause i sqeezed it!!! Then did heaps of betadine so i hope it will be ok and not infect anything????? Hows things with you girls.?? Xx

    Hi yep im still swollen too. But you do know that your tummy lymph glands have been damaged and will take time. I have been drinking heaps of water and high protein diet. Its looking heaps better at 6 wks. Hang in there girl trust the process. I bet you look awsome. X

    POST OP CARE AFTER MUMMY MAKEOVER

    Hi girls. Thinking of you @Chan7710. Just mend healthy dont do too much. The more you get off meds the better you feel. Just finish your antibiotics then stop. Panadol osteo is great cause you only have it every 8 hrs @Mumof3boys you are going to love tt! But just keep in mind it stays swollen for 6m. So you will still probably have little lump on bottom for a while. Then again you maybe different to me....However from your pic the top part should go totally flat. @Miss77 my ps supplied me with my post op bra and then i got another one from myers. Its a Berli post op bra. My size was 12dd. Dont go buying too much before op. You will be living in post op bra and tummy brace for a while. So by the time you feel like shopping its more fun. Dont worry about size changing you want bra firm around the band and tight like a compression feeling. I have been give ok to wear lorna jane crops. And im still fitting my original small size. I love them more than wireless bras. Especially to sleep in as they hold boobs together now i can sleep on my side! Yes i did mean house cleaning and home duty. I never had c section but i feel as though this wont be as bad recovery wize!

No excercise yet. But in full house mode from week 2.5. Sorry i haven't checked in earlier but i had heaps of work to catch up on. X This is week 4. Still have swelling just above the scar....but not enough to drain.
