tummy tuck in a week .. so scared !!
 
Hello everyone !

am 24 old guy .. i lost 150 lb in the past year
that left me with extra soft skin
i have a percentage of 22% of fat
i am 6.2

i decided to go for tummy tuck after i talked to my coachs and they all said the skin cant go away with work out !

my surgery is next week and i am worried about the recovery !
i read couple of blogs and some of them said it would take couple of month to start excising sports again ?
am a soccer player and i want to know when can i go back to running and playing again ?


thnx ..

hey Aimar first off congrats on losing all of that weight : ) I had a full tummy tuck 2 weeks ago and I have to say that for me the recovery was fine. I took my pain meds as directed the first day and a half, don't wait until the pain kicks in take it every 4 hrs or as directed, I think its more of a discomfort rather than pain. As far as working out speak to your plastic surgeon about that, they will be the one to determine that, as well as your own body. You have to listen to what your body tells you. I am sure you will do great and just think of the final results I am sure you worked hard to lose all of that weight now you arejust putting the finishing touches on. Think of all of that extra skin you will no longer be taking around the soccer field with you. Let us know how you make out.

You have to start slowly but you will recover soon. All the best!
