Will I get good results with my Mommy Makeover?

I am scheduled for my MM on Sept 19th.  I have 3 children (4 years, 21 mos, and 8 mos) and I nursed all of them, but decided to wean early with my last so I could get back my body the way it was before pregnancy before a trip to Hawaii next year.  I was pretty small before kids, and I gained 70 lbs with my first and never quite got down below 170.  After the last baby I knew I was done and I worked my tail off to lose it all and I am within 10 lbs of my pre babies weight, but I look NOTHING like I did.     Now that I have got everything in order, I am worried I am not going to look any different after it's said and done.  I know my surgeon is great, and I have total trust in him, but it's just in the back of my mind.   I am 5'5" and right around 145.  I am currently a 34C at Victoria's Secret and I tried on the 425cc sizers at my consult and liked them, but I really think I want to go a bit bigger (if I can).   Also, I am debating on getting lipo of the inner thighs.  If you were me, would you do it?   Any input would be great.  I keep looking and I don't really see many bodies that I feel look like mine before, so I am just a bundle of questions!   Thanks :D

It's just a fear I have. My Dr does amazing work, but it's just a weird thing that pops into my head occasionally.

Thanks so much for sharing on RealSelf. Your photo is pretty backlit and it's hard to really see your bod, but I'm wondering why you're worried nothing will look different after surgery. Have you checked out your doctor's before and after photos?
