So Excited! Full TT, BA with Lift and Lipo of Flanks

 Had full TT, BA with lift and lipo of flanks...

 Had full TT, BA with lift and lipo of flanks 2 days ago and I'm doing great.  The first night in the hospital was pretty rough,I'm home now and doing well in my recliner.  As long as I stay on top of the medicine, I'm doing well pain wise.  Getting up and down is the hardest part, but it's over quickly.  

I'm pretty swollen right now, not much drainage happening, but I can already tell that it's going to be great.  It's amazing and I'm super happy!!

 Just got home from my first post-op...

 Just got home from my first post-op appointment and it went really well!  I got my drains out and the dr. said I can wear a regular sports bra now.  Having the drains pulled out was not pleasant, but it was over quickly.  I did take a pain pill about an hour before the appointment, so I think that helped.  I still have very minimal bruising and I'm feeling great.  Stopped by Target on my way home from the doctor to do a little shopping (which felt good to get out of the house) and am planning on taking a nap when my little girl does.  So...still happy and can't wait to try on my new bikini I just bought online!!!  (I've NEVER worn one)    :)  Fingers crossed!

 Ok, so I got my drains out yesterday and I'm feeling good today. I've only had advil thus far, will take a pain pill in order to sleep tonight.  The worst part of today was when I sneezed twice -- NOT fun.  But I'm up and around for short periods of time throughout the day, and I'm even heading to a short meeting in the morning for work.  So I posted more after pics...can't wait to be all healed!

I am 29 years old, 5'8" and 150 pounds. I have 2 children, 6 and 3, and am scheduled for a full TT with lipo of flanks and lower back as well as a breast lift with augmentation. I have been wanting to get rid of my nasty stomach for a really long time. I had a "pooch" before I even had kids! After 2 pregnancies gaining 60 pounds both times and one c-section, I am going in on October 20th and am so excited!

After losing the "baby weight" I started really working out (with a trainer) and firming up all over. My arms, legs, butt, thighs...everything looks great! Except my stomach, flanks and breasts.

I will post my before pics soon and keep everyone updated on my recovery. I have lots of people coming in to help me with the kids and I will have 2 weeks off of work. Hopefully everything goes well!

I meant to say I am interested in finding out what doctor you used because your body looks amazing and I am very much interested and doing the mommy makeover. My other comment didn't make sense. Thanks for sharing your story and photos.

Hello. Have you returned back to work? I was comtemplated my surgery TT and breast lift but I would only be able to take two weeks off right now and I didn't feel that was enough time to heal. What do you think?

I took 2 weeks off of work and it was great timing. I was tired the first few days and was moving a little slower, but I'm able to sit down and "relax" at times while at work. Two weeks should be fine depending on what kind of job you have. Good luck!

Thanks so much for your response. My husband is saying the same thing - NOT! I'm planning to go to a hospital to have it done because I can't afford a private Dr.'s office. I was told it's just a good. My consult is this Wednesday, wish me luck. BTW, you look AMAZING!!!!

I'm considering a tummy tuck and breast lift with implants. How long did it take you to make this decision? After seeing the doctor, how long did it take for him/her to schedule you for surgery?

How long did it take you to consider getting the surgery? And once you did, how long did it take for the doctor to decide when you should go for the surgery?

Hi Inesha West. I had been considering a tummy tuck for as long as I can remember. Especially after having my son. And then after having my daughter and knew that my family was complete, I really started to think about it. So I worked my bootie off with diet and exercise and have done so for the last 2 years with no big change in my stomach. And no amount of working out would help...and my boobs were getting worse with each pound that I lost. So I got my husband on board (he thought I looked find...bless his heart!) and agonized for months. Then I finally bit the bullet and went on a consult. And that was it! I scheduled as soon as possible that worked in my schedule and haven't looked back! The doctor actually had me gain a few pounds before surgery...how cool is that??!!

Thanks for posting your photos. I can hardly believe you're looking so good and doing so well in such a short time. My surgery is in 2 weeks and I'm encouraged by your success.
