Mariannnnne! Wow, you are having your abdominoplasty in less than a week! How exciting! I wish you fabulous results, and a healthy, very low discomfort outcome that you are thrilled with! You have to keep us posted on how you are doing. I made my appt for my first tummy tuck consult with a real plastic surgeon. Up till now, I'd only discussed it with my bariatric surgeon, since he does some of this type of reconstruction also. Anyway, I'm very excited for you, and make sure you take lots of before, during and after pics!! you can always throw them out, but it will prob be a valuable reference for you when you look back on everything. Take care, stay in touch! I'll say a little prayer for you to have an easy, successful surgery.
