I am scheduled to have my procedures in November and I can't wait! After 4 kids and gaining 70-100 pounds each pregnancy then losing it, my stomach and breasts are now deflated and saggy. Hubby doesn't mind but I can't stand it! Many conversations later, I finally convinced him I need this for me. I plan on losing an additional 15-20 pounds before surgery to put me at 140 ( my pre pregnancy... more
There are not enough positive adjectives to describe the experience I had at the Center for Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Vath is fantastic! I knew the minute I sat down with him, that I had found my surgeon. He is professional, personable, caring, very knowledgeable, and skilled. It was about my goals and desired outcomes. I am a 51 year old woman (though small in frame) that had excess skin from... more
I'm 5'2, fluctuate between 127-132 lbs and like many of us mothers we look in the mirror after childbirth and hate our bodies....ugh...yuk! I currently a size 6 and a 36B. I hope to get 400cc's and be a full C or small D. I have a 21, 8, 5 yr old and breastfed each of them minimally 1 year each and although they are my world I have hated what having kids did to my body. I have been wanting... more
I'm having a tummy tuck, mastoplexy and changing to smaller silicone gel implants, and thigh liposuction August 7th. I had saline implants 12 years ago done by Dr. Robert Young in San Antonio, TX. I loved my implants for many years. Now my breast have become saggy and they have a thin and rippled feel to them. I've had two children 1 and 2 years old and I've worked off all the weight and... more
Scheduled for Tummy Tuck with lipo of flanks on July 31. After losing over 100lbs (size 22/24 to a size 4) I had some loose skin mostly under my belly button, I really didn't mind it too much--I even competed in Bodybuilding and the skin was hidden (for the most part) in my suit, since it was easily hidden and I didn't have kids yet I didn't even think to have a TT. After I had my first... more
My motivation was the fact that I absolutely hated the way I looked after having babies I felt ugly unattractive and was severely depressed. After going to see Dr. Campanile I finally feel attractive, normal, I look good in my clothes, and feel good in my own skin. Everything about my experience was amazing. I went in for a Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation a lift, and for liposuction.... more
I'm getting a breast augmentation with a tummy luck and belly lipo.
Ever since my last pregnancy my belly and boobs have looked like deflated balloons. I also can't seem to lose the belly fat since my pregnancy. I'm eager to look better but I'm not looking forward to the recovery part. Also nervous about the surgery.
My implants will be Sientra 415 cc, high profile, textured, round silicone... more
I had our first baby at 22, our second at 24 and our third (and final) at 26. I definitely lost my pre-baby body young and really was unhappy with what I saw in the mirror. Before babies I was a size B and while nursing I got up to a DD. So needless to say, I was very deflated. I went in for a breast augmentation consultation and my doctor discovered that I had a diastatis recti. Now that all... more
I just want to be confident again and allow my husband to look at my body. My husband is very supportive although he says I don't need it, but I think as a husband he has to say that. I meet with Dr. Vath in Golden Co and I'm beyond excited that he was able to squeeze me in. His work is amazing and he is very nice. Already had my pre-op appt and my surgery is scheduled for May 13th!! more
I have been reading posts and researching since november 2014. Ok really obsessing, i am so amazed at all the awesome make overs. There is hope for a tired saggy body like mine. I have lost weight but there is nothing that will improve the deflated boobs and raisin belly. I had my first baby at age 17 and have had a belly full of stretch marks and loose skin since. I had my last at age 37, so... more
I started a new review under mommy makeover instead of breast lift with implants because I decided to go ahead and get drain-less tummy tuck, breast lift with implants. I have chose 400cc mod plus profile silicone implants. I am still not positive on that size though. I have plenty of time to decide though. I am having a hip surgery in June and scheduling my mm for 5 weeks after that. I guess... more
I just had a consultation today to get this thing started. I am in desperate need of TT, BA, & Lipo to inner thighs. I was so pleased with this first consultation. The doctor and staff were great. Very friendly, full of information. The price is a little higher than what I was expecting but I think it's well worth it.
Ok. Had consult no 2 today. Dr was great & very informative as well.... more
At the age of 36, after delivering two children and feeling my family was complete, I decided to treat myself to breast implants following many months of nursing. Jump ahead six years to 2004, when I am blessed with the opportunity of becoming a surrogate/gestational carrier for a couple out of New York. Living in Boston at the time, and knowing just how much my children mean to me, I spoke... more
I'm what you call "petite." As in short, little, small, tiny, wee....you get the idea. But that's ok with me. Great things come in small packages and at 5'2" I could still outrun a 6'3" guy! Boobs have always been nonexistent, but my figure is proportionate and I was happy with my body. I took care of myself and looked great with a padded bra. I married a wonderful man and had two beautiful... more
I have been on this site for awhile and haven't had the courage to write anything. I am 27 years old, had 3 kids in 4 years. i have breast fed them all for a year each and man has the rollercoaster of weight loss and gain taken a toll on my body. I decided I want to feel like myself again. I was just going for the BA but my doctor told me that I have the separation in my abs and a small belly... more
For my 50th Birthday (in 4 months) I wanted to feel and look better than I have in the past 10 years. My youngest was off to college and it was time to start taking better care of me. I changed my diet, started a consistent exercise routine and 8 months later I was in better shape then I had been for a long while. But no matter what, that stubborn belly wouldn't go away. A lot of my friends... more
I am scheduled for a mastopexy, mini tummy tuck, and liposuction of abdomen, flanks and arms. Mini tummy tuck is due to my pre-existing long gallbladder scar, otherwise it would be a full tummy tuck. I am having the Surgery at Rose Hospital and staying overnight. I'm 54, so find it amusing that this is still called a "mommy makeover" at my age.
I think I am officially starting to freak out... more
I'm 5'5, 135b and worked off most of my baby weight after 2 beautiful babies born via c-section. I gained 55lb with my first baby who weighted 10 lb! I did a consult years ago but chickened out for various reasons - cost, feeling it as selfish, pain and recovery time, etc. I was deflated and my workouts just couldn't get me back to my pre-baby shape even if I was thin again. I had lots of... more
I am a stay at home mom and I'm pretty darn active but still cannot lose that belly fat and the "mommy pouch"! I have thought about having a tummy tuck for what seems like forever and I finally have worked up enough nerve to do it! And my husband is totally on board!!
About 6 years ago I had a breast augmentation and I've always been very happy with the results (34DD)! At 5'2'' they are... more
I have scheduled my surgery for Nov. 25th and I am so excited but nervous at the same time. I have wanted this reduction for over 10 years but I waited till I had my kids so I could breastfeed. My last daughter was born via c section and now I have a lovely shelf where my skin hangs over the c section scar. Add to that lots of stretch marks and separated abdominal muscles, yuck! I am not... more
