Mommy Makeover Today on Twin Cities Live

January 14th, 2014

We are at the KSTP-TV studio now  for a live taping of a segment for Twin Cities Live. #MommyMakeovers are procedures designed to help women unhappy with changes following childbirth.  We explain cosmetic surgery options when diet and exercise  are insufficient to restore your  physique  after pregnancy. Torn abdominal muscles, belly button hernia, excess tummy skin and loss of breast fullness are just a few of the difficulties some women experience following pregnancy. Christina joins me on the set today to graciously share her story about her Mommy Makeover transformation. Watch the show live on KSTP-TV at 3PM CT today.

Mel’s Blog: Tummy Tuck Recovery

August 9th, 2012

I was very excited at the idea of getting rid of my tummy pooch.  Recovery continued from my abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery and my abdomen turned all the shades of the rainbow and was pretty swollen.   Wearing the post-op binder that was provided, helped  a lot of relief and support.   I went back to work on post-op day 6.   I work in an office, so I was able to structure my day so that it was comfortable.   I walked around hunched over for a few days, but eventually was able to stand upright.   It helped a lot for me to be able to get up and go to work.   It was nice to be back in to my normal routine.      Slowly but surely my pants fit again as the swelling went down.

There was one thing that was very difficult:   lower back pain.   It lasted 2 weeks, and it was horrible.   It was almost worse than the soreness in my abdomen.   I never realized how important abdominal muscles were for my posture!   I did reach out to the office staff and Dr. Bashioum a few times with post-operative questions.   Everyone was so gracious – I truly felt spoiled!
