I am now 11 weeks post LBL, and happily recovered very nicely. I was surprised that the surgery was not very painful at all, much less than WLS. I just had discomfort mostly caused by being in bed and the fact that I had to stay on my back for so much. In fact the most pain was the drains. The best news is that I no longer have the loose skin, and my tummy is flat! And the fact that I am now down another 18 lbs following is wonderful. One week ago, I had a bilateral brachioplasty/BA. Again recovery has been uneventful, and although bothersome, much better than I anticipated. I am just amazed by my new body, and very happy. Feel free to email for any questions.

can you tell me how long it was before you could stand up straight. I had a tummy tuck with lipo Thursday and it is nearly impossible to stand up straight.

Tina, The first week is the worst. I was bent over and was only abt half way upright. Each week gets better, and by the third wk I was almost standing upright. At 4 weeks I would start the day upright and then by afternoon, I would be leaning forward a few inches; a short rest in bed brought me upright again. I would expct that you may actually stand up earlier than I since you had a TT rather than the LBL, however, since the work on the abs is the same, it may take you awhile.
