Hi! Im 7 wks post op. My results are better than i expected. The 1 st 3 wks of recovery where a nightmare i had body stiffness,nubness,leg pain & swelling. I was lucky & never had complications on the surgical site its healing great. I think it was all from the lipo to the whole trunk.

Hi ladies, For those of you that have had your mommy makeover, do you feel as if any part of your thighs benefited from having the mommy makeover? I am on the fence about having the mommy makeover or lower body lift. I have lost 70 lbs and am feeling like the mommy makeover might not benefit me as much as a lower body lift. Any input anyone has I would appreciate it, thanks!

Hi ladies I am now 19 days post op after Full TT BA with implant, I have come along way since day 1 post op but didn't realise what a slow process the whole experience would be!! The swelling for me remains a massive pain!! (As with most of us it seems!!) My scars are amazing i am so pleased. Still massively tired and think i could cry with frustration sometimes but know it'll be worth it in months rather than weeks....I travel to france on friday (24th) eeekkkk MASSIVE DRIVE!!!! Any advise is more than recomended??

Reading all these reviews makes my day - keep up your fabulous healing guys, I have posted some new pics over the weekend!! x x x

Hyjen, it would be great if you could post a review on your story. I would love to read it and I am sure others will benefit from it. And if you have any questions or concerns the others who have had MM before you may be able to leave you helpful or encouraging comments. I hope you are healing nicely and happy with your results. :)

The back pain has been the worst, however a heating pad has helped a ton ! The first few days coughing was awful, but after a week is not bad. The binder/girdle is best at its tightest. The reduction/lift has been pretty easy so far. The lipo is sore, but not bad :)

I agree the binder tight! Sounds like you are doing good! Good for you!

Coughing is the worst! I have been sucking on cough drops constantly but a cough snuck up on me today and oh I cried. Going to try honey & tea I read it helps. Any other suggestions would be great. The whole holding tummy tight just doesn't cut it. My swelling has pretty much went down on the BA the tummy is still very swollen. My back pain is rough I can't wait to stand up straight again

Hang in there! I had no cough at all, I think only once and was bad. I liked having the tummy compression thingy, actually it has been almost a year and I still wear it once in a while...you will be walking straight in no time, so glad you did it!!! Congrats!

@grayloramom and wannabsmaller......how is it going! How are you feeling?

They use to do Mommy Makeovers as a contest. How come they don't do them as contests no more? Or are there contests out there and where are they? Some people can't afford a TT and Lipo. I would love to win a contest to have this done. Any suggestions?

You've lost 20lbs since surgery? Wow, good for you! Thank you for the encouragement! I need it big time. The snacking and sweets are what is killing me. I was just thinking that I could workout hardcore to recover from my bad eatting developments and that has not been the case. Thank you for your help!

I had a TT BL and lipo on hip, flanks, and thighs July 25. I'm starting on the treadmill. Do a sugar cleanse. You need to break that cycle. Start out slow beach body is tooooo much
