    I did not. Does it help with Swelling?

    Love your videos.. Thanks for the info. I'm getting my tummy tuck in 11 days. You really help with my questions about what to expect after surgery. Thanks again 🙂

    Swelling varies with the amount of trauma and the use of liposuction in the flanks. Technique with tummy tuck surgery varies between surgeons so the swelling experienced afterwards varies as well. 

    Good idea on the video 🙂

    I had a tummy tuck July 27th. I feel like it's not flush if you know what I'm talking about. It looks like I'm not flat. I'm super paranoid. and I've noticed new stretch marks as well 🙁 I can't seem to find anyone's belly that looks like mine. I'm also interested in seeing your work out video. can you direct me on where I can find it please. I want to show you my belly so you can tell me of this is normal.
