LOVING MY NEW BODY ALHAMBRA,CA

I am 25yrs old a mother & wife 5'3"...

I am 25yrs old a mother & wife 5'3" weight 138.. I had my daughter at 16 yrs old i gained like 60 pounds with the pregnancy later got pregnant for second time at 17yrs had my son didnt gain much. I was able to loose the weight but my stomache is loose .. my boobs got saggy.. just been on a diet ever since then just feel so unhappy with myself.. I have zero confidence . I was so lucky this year my husband paid for my mm BA WITH LIFT & TT WITH LIPO just to make me happy but now i feel like i rushed it i feel so guilty i made him waste so much money. im having mixed emotions so scared i wont wake up and leave my kids without a mom.. although i am excited

Good luck to you. Make sure doc is board certified, that the facility is clean, well equipped, and can handle any emergency. I know there is always fear when going under the knife. Just have faith that you will pull through with flying colors!

I feel all the same things you do! So many people tell me happy wife, happy life and it is so true!! Good luck!!

As long as you go with a ASPS and/or ASAPS board certified surgeon and are in good health, your chances of coming through this with flying colors are astronomical. We all feel guilty about spending money on our looks, but if it will make you happy, it will make your whole family happier.

Glad you have a supportive husband! You're going to do great.

Please keep us posted about how you're feeling as the big day gets closer.

Good luck, daze! Glad that you have a very supportive husband - you are going to be fine! It's normal to feel nervous/anxious/excited all rolled into one. I'm booked for mar 26, so I feel the same way :) so, glad that I found this site to help me work out all the questions surrounding the surgery. Thank you for sharing your story :)

Hi guys im doing great. Im not really in pain. Just sore swollen and a little bruised up. This has been an amazing experience. Im very surprised how easy its been. My incision looks great. I should get my drain put tomorrow. Evening. Yay! I've slept through the night both nights. I feel the Avelar method is much easier on the body than your original tummy tuck. I've felt a little dizzy at times which is to be expected especially. With my syncope issues. My husband has been wonderful. He's my biggest fan. He waited on me took care of our 2 year old and kept the house clean. I can't wait until my other procedures in 2 weeks. Dr. Hamel is amazing. I love the fact that im sitting down and all I can see is my flat belly . Hey I can even see my hoo hoo lol.
