i had a fully body lift & boob job~ your 23, i would wait on the TT if youthink in any way you may want more kids.. your thinking of spending 13-15K, and if you have more kids, it was all for nothing..a waste of money and i dont believe you can do it again.. i HIGHLY recommend you wait. the breast lift also would be a waste if you get preggers again..@ 23 i knew i didnt want more kids- yea- then @ 29 had my daughter.. wait.

The recovery is long i'm not going to lie to you. I was also so scared I almost backed out at the last minute. Here is something for you to think about. Do you want more children? Tummy tucks are expensive and the recovery is long, not painful at all but uncomfortable and long! Did I say long enough lol? If you think there is even a remote possibility that you will have more children or want more children I would wait. If you have a tummy tuck then get preggers again you will be back at square 1. I am 5 weeks post op as of today. I never experienced any pain at all not even when they switched my pain meds because they were making me dizzy. I had no pain meds for 24hours only 4 days post op because they need to clean out of your system before giving u new ones. No pain I promise. Uncomfortable oh my goodness yes. your abs are super tight, which is a good thing, u cant stand up straight for 2 to 3 weeks at least my doc said u shouldnt as u run a risk of opening the incision. All doctors are different though so listen to what yours says ok. I had mine done by Dr Alejandro Hernandez Pizzoglia in Santo Domingo Dominican Republic. He is amazing, makes you feel very confident in his ability and tells you the truth about what he needs to do to make your body post baby beautiful again. He is very reasonably priced also. I had full TT full back lipo and a brazillian butt lift for 7 grand he also sets u up at a recovery house where the staff takes care of u 24 hours a day I recommend staying there for at least 12 days post op ok. He will tell u the same. Believe me i'm glad I stayed that long. As for your scar, the doc will tell u how big it needs to be. I wasnt overly heavy to begin with so mi incision was hip to hip. I have seen ones that go around further towards the lower back. My cut is very low, right along the top of my vaginal area. I have put my bikinis on and u cannot see any of it. I would recommend anyone to dr hernandez his staff is amazing and so helpful his assistant Catherine took me to the beauty salon to get my hair done after she had worked all day. He sets up pick up from the airport to his clinic. The drivers name is Leo he is a gem and gets u everywhere u need to be safely. I hope this helps u girl. Good luck please keep in touch i do have pics i can send u not overly great with computers but I have a friend helping me post some on here later today
