Was it worth it? YES!!! I am only about 3 weeks post op and I am beyond thrilled with the results. I had a breast lift with 325 cc high profile "gummy bear" silicone implants, abdominoplasty and liposuction of inner and outer thighs. The pain was the most severe I have ever experienced and I consider myself to have an excellent threshold for pain. Having said that, I would do it again... more
Thanks to everyone that share their experiences on RS, it really has been an educating and supportive journey so far. I'm a mom of three kids, all 3 c-sections, pregnancy has done a number on my body. I had very big babies, my first being a 9.5 lbs. I am 5'4, 135 lbs and have worked out my entire life...not solely for appearance but the way it makes me feel. As life gets more hectic, my... more
If someone had told my 19 year old self that getting sexy would include stool softeners, granny panties and housecoats I'd have called them crazy-- but that's exactly where I am. Tomorrow I get my sexy back!
I am 38 and have 3 kids. I've always been slender, but got huge with each pregnancy and each kid was over 8lbs. Right now I am 157lbs at 5'7''. I am happy with my shape, just done... more
I'm an older mom--age 51. Childbirth and losing 120 lbs took a toll on my body. I'm having BL and TT. Since I have 8" gallbladder scar I'm having a fleur de lis TT. Will be trading 1 scar for another but excited about a flat stomach--nervous too. Wanted this for 10 yrs. I hope its right thing to do.
Had my procedures today. Feeling better than I expected. Dr. T and his staff were great... more
I am 51, have 2 grown children and grandchildren. I have hated my stomach for almost 30 years. I am just now getting serious about having it fixed - thus my "never too late" title. I have never been overweight and only gained 26 pounds during my pregnancies but my dr said it is just how my skin reacted to being stretched. I am fine with the way I look in clothes, I do P90X at least 4 days a... more
I'm a 29 year old mom of 3. I have 2 boys and a girl (5, 3 and 18 moths). I always knew I'd want a MM after I was done having kids. I've always been very conscious of my appearance and I never want to wear a one-piece bathing suit ;) I wore a 2 piece this past summer but I hated my tummy when I bent over. Not to mention, I had a hernia and a stretched out old belly button ring hole. It wasn't... more
I'm a 45 y/o mother of 4 adult children. All my children were natural births and nursed only the youngest. I've recently lost about 60 pounds. I'm 5'9" and weigh about 215 which still makes me overweight, however I can't stand the saggy skin that hangs on my stomach any longer from having the kids and losing the weight. My breasts are still nice, but I've lost a lot of the volume.
I have... more
