Is this realistic? TT and BA recovery question

I am 29 years old and a mom of 3 (5, 3 and 16 m).  I have a consult with a PS on Oct 12th to talk about a possible TT and definitely BA.  I say "possible" bc even though I am unhappy with my tummy skin I dont have a lot of overhang.  If I stand up straight my tummy is flat (with a few wrinkles under my belly button) but when I bend over I have a ton of wrinkles, dimples and a roll that hangs over my pants.  I'd consider a Mini TT but I have a hernia in my BB that needs to be repaired and I'd like my BB redone.  Not to mention I like the idea of being able to have the PS sew my abs back together since they are somewhat puffy now.  I'm a size 2 or 4 but more like a 2 and 5'1" tall.  I am very active and go to the gym 5 days a week.   Now here's my question, if I had my surgery done mid-January would I be well enough to go on vacation at the end of April to the Caribbean?  I'm turning 30 so we were planning to go then.  But I could push it back as late as May if needed.  But 3 months seems like a good enough time to recover enough or am I being unrealistic?

Hi! I didn't start a review until I was ready for surgery, because I seriously debated the picture part. I mean, it's porn. Well, maybe reject-porn, lol! But then I figured all the pics are clinical - informative. No one knows names here, just screen names, so I don't see how anyone could search for me. And I know seeing all the before and after pics has really helped me! I joke I've seen more boobies than my husband has! ;) And, maybe this is weird, but I know I'm going to miss my old body. I know it's wrinkled and saggy, but this body grew, birthed, and nourished eight human beings! Talk about the very definition of "feminine"! And it's MY body. And now, it's changed. And even though the changes may be good ones, I know I can always come back here and see my old self again. Because I won't keep those pics for fear if my kids seeing them! O.O

Happywifehappylife, I'm so excited for you! Can you start a review and upload pics? I would love to see your results.

Hi Skinny! I would love to but I have some reservations about that. First, my husband probably wouldn't be comfortable with it. And second, quite a few people know I'm doing this procedure and all it would take is a simple search to find me :) I wouldnt mind family seeing it but I have gym friends (one in particular who is getting a TT by the same PS 3 weeks after me) and I'd rather not put myself "out there". So I wont be doing that. And I probably shouldnt do a review either until after my procedure is finished. But maybe I can send you the pics once I get to "know" you?

No worries. I totally respect that. I guess I just assume that everyone is doing this procedure in secret. I only told a few people and I doubt any of them would think to search online. Only my husband knows about the fact I have online support, but even he doesn't know this website's name. LOL. Well please reply here or inbox me here after your surgery whenever you are okay and good luck to you! I am not comfortable giving anyone on here my personal email so you don't have to send me any pictures, although I am so curious. ;-) I wish to remain anonymous too.

You'd be fine unless your going to get naked. Scars won't be healed yet.

That sounds reasonable to me, but I've never had the procedures done, have only read hundreds of wonderful stories. :) Here's what some doctors say about healing time after a mommy makeover.
