Today I'm sharing my Tummy Tuck Results 1 Year Later follow-up.
You can find every post in this series on My Plastic Surgery Story post.
I can't believe that it has been a year since I had my Mommy Makeover.
After a year of recovery, physical training, and lots of dedication, I am happier with my body than I have ever been.
Today I am sharing my full tummy tuck results so you can get a better idea of what this process was like for me. I don't attribute every bit of my satisfaction to the surgery itself because the surgery alone would not have given me the body I wanted.
It was the first step.
Having plastic surgery is a scary thing. Like any surgery, you are scared because you face the possibility of death or complications, but when you are choosing to put yourself at risk, it's even scarier.
I do not regret going under the knife because I was finally able to get the body I have always wanted. That's not to say that I have reached all of my goals because I haven't. I plan to continue training and hopefully compete one day. I am very proud of all I've accomplished up to this point.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comment section or email me.
Tummy Tuck Results 1 Year Later: In Pictures
Here are my scar pics after one year. I am a little self-conscious about the scar, but it was worth it to me. My abs are no longer separated. So the scar was a small price to pay.
As you can see, the sides have faded considerably, and the scar is much flatter. I have been massaging the scar tissue to help flatten it and can't wait to see what it looks like in six months.
How I Feel:
I have regained all sensation in my breasts. I am starting to regain the feeling near the scar on my abdomen.
It's weird when the sensation first begins to return. I have also noticed that the more the scar heals, the more it itches. Other than that, I have returned to full strength training and have not experienced any problems.
Breast implants, on the other hand, do cause some issues. Because I had to get under the muscle implants, I have to be very careful when doing chest exercises because my pectoral muscles cause the implants to move when flexed—my solution: No chest exercises. I'm entirely ok with that.
If you live in NC and are considering plastic surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Davis Plastic Surgery. They performed my surgery, and they are amazing! I have been able to email them to ask questions, and they are always helpful and supportive.
