Are you happy with how your body looks? Body contouring can correct many of the issues that bother you most. The key is to know your options and decide which is best for you.
"I am in love with how tiny my tummy looks in the directly post-op photo. After reading many reviews I am getting scared that I won’t be that small when the swelling is gone. I am staying positive, but I can’t help but wonder and worry. It doesn’t help that I seem to have blown up with swelling!"
DR. POUSTI: Tummy Tuck Final Results?
Thank you for the question and picture.
Based on your photograph, I think your plastic surgeon has done a very nice job for you. I think that you can expect that after healing has occurred and swelling has resolved (assuming you maintain a stable weight postoperatively) to look very similar to what you looked like immediately postoperatively.
Patience is key because, it takes many months for swelling to resolve after tummy tuck surgery and it may take up to one year (or greater) a complete skin redraping to occur.
I hope this helps.
