Questions, Nervous and feeling guilty....Macon, GA
By c01armstrong on 21 May 2012
I am 29 years old....I have 3 girls ages 9, 6 & 5 (my 2nd & 3rd are only 360 days apart). I am 5' 9" and 130 lbs. I have a consult June 18th in Macon, GA in regards to a Mommy Makeover. I have hated my stomach since I gave birth to my 2 youngest because my body did not have time to recover. I breast fed my 2nd & 3rd child but in my own opinion I feel that I have still have nice breast (34/C and could actually wear a 32/D)...my breast do not sag and I have a good amount of breast tissue.
Before kids I was always asked if I had a boob job because I had nice breast (I weighed 100 lbs and wore a size 0). I want my breast to be "perky" again! :-) I have not worn a 2 piece in 5 years because I cannot stand to look at my stomach. I do not have that many stretch marks but I had my belly button pierced when I was younger and even though I removed it when I found out I was pregnant with my 1st child, it still left it's mark.
I have done P90X and dieted, however the loose skin will not go away. I got down to 114 lbs and was so disgusted with my loose skin that I went back to 125-130 lbs. I hate clothes shopping because I can fit in a size 4 but I have a muffin top due to my loose skin. I am a nurse so I have done a ton of research on the procedures. I want a full tummy tuck (I want a new belly button and my loose skin to be gone), a little lipo of the abdomen and flanks and a breast augmentation (I am fine with the size I am, just want them to be perky). Like most moms, I have put myself on the back burner and I will be 30 in December, so I feel I deserve a Mommy Makeover.
I know it is going to cost a lot and I am a big selfless person so I feel guilty about doing this for myself. My husband is on board and says that he is fine with me having a Mommy Makeover. It is just hard to think about spending so much money on myself since I have put myelfast for the past 9 years. The ps I have a consult with does not post before and after pictures on his website. I have spoken with 2 women who have used him and they both highly recommended him. I have also asked my fellow nurse colleges awho they recommend and they have all said the same.
I want to know if anyone has used Dr. McClendon in Macon and if so, what were your results, where you satisfied & would you recommend him? I am looking to have my Mommy Makeover the first week of December, so any and all input would be greatly appreciated. In my mind, I know this is what I want. I have spent so much time looking at before & after pictures, looking up different doctors, researching the procedures? What questions I need to ask and etc. the lady that has had a breast lift & augmentation, tummy tuck, lipo and rhinoplasty by Dr. McClendon highly recommended him, but being I am a nurse I want as much input as possible from others. I look at this website every day, read other people's experience, but so far I have not found the first person who has used Dr. McClendon. I am excited for my consult and eager to hear his recommendations, but I'm also eager to hear from others who have used him.
