For those of you who have already had one....how long till you could pick up your children? I am have a lift and augmentation on Apri 14th but am thinking of also doing a tummy tuck ( I am talking to the Dr monday but am curious to know from those who already have done it). I have my sister here to help the first 10 days after but then I'm on my own. Would I be ok to lift my children after 10 days or not? Also My Husband gets back from Deployment First week of July.....After 12 weeks would I be healed enough (on average) to go on a vacation...like a cruise?

Hi, I was wondering if you happened to get the full mommy makeover with tummy tuck? I am also a military spouse and am scheduled for surgery Feb. 27th. I'm a little worried about the recovery time and lifting my children as well. I just don't really know what to expect as far as pain goes. I'm excited as well as really kind of worried. If you could please let me know how your experience has been, I would love to hear it. Thanks a million! Katieg209
