Tummy Tuck Diaries- Day 27 What a difference a month makes!



My tummy is flat. Yes I am still swollen and it will come down more. Yes I have to have my stitches out, but my tummy is worlds away from where it was. I will show you bare tummy after pictures when I get my stitches out at the end of January. For now, here is the before and after with the sweater on.

I am wearing a brace to help with swelling and bruising ( I have no bruising at all!)

Helps that my hair has been blonded and styled too. You can see by the picture I am pretty damn proud of myself. And I am!!!

I am so glad I did the surgery. The pain was minimal compared to the mental pain of having been asked every day WHEN ARE YOU DUE!? I am so happy those days are over.

I cannot thank enough the people who helped and made this possible. Hubby, my Mom, step Dad, Dad, step Mom, Mom in Law, Dad in Law and most of all:

DR. ANDREW ORDON!!!



He is the handsome devil from the Doctors show. He and his partner Dr. Chopra in Beverly Hills, did such a fantastic job and are sweet as can be. So nice to be in such capable hands!!

I feel like I can finally get on with living my life. And what a sweet life it is!
