PA Mom Got Her Body Back - Allentown, PA

I'm doing this as a 35th bday present for myself. I have 4 children ages 17,13,5 and 2. The last two I breastfed and that REALLY took a toll on my breast. They turned to sagging skin. I now have a lot of extra skin on my stomach. I'm 5'4 and 135lbs. Once I fix my breast and stomach ill be happy again.

My surgeon is Dr. C in Allentown PA. I'm originally from NYC Recently moved here. I'm anxious and excited. I'm a little worried about how long I'm going to be in pain.

Im so anxious I cant sleep. Im thinking maybe I...

Im so anxious I cant sleep. Im thinking maybe I should just get my breast done then do the TT next year. Oh I might as well just get it over with. I do want to have it done.

OMG...2 more days until my surgery! I want to get it done already. Thank you to everyone who has been answering my 100 questions...LOL.
Im pretty sure i will have more after the surgery.

Tomorrow is the day My Body Gets Made Over! Oh I know im not going to get any sleep tonite. The hospital said i have to be there at 6am...thats good its early.

It's finally OVER! I'm one day. Postop...

It's finally OVER! I'm one day. Postop.
I was expecting to be in the worst pain...but its actually under. Control. The highest point my pain level was at was a 3! That was when I woke up from surgery.
I went into surgery exactly 7:45am I woke up around 12:30pm. It took. Like 4 hrs. I have two drains...one on each side of my stomach. They are a little uncomfortable when I'm sitting up. My breast feel like they have filled up with milk and I need to breastfeed. My stomach feels like I have a tight corset on. That's the. Best way to describe my pain. I'm able. To stand up straight but was advised not to do so. I have to remind myself to hunch over. I can't eat much of anything. The smell of food makes me nausea. I'm getting up fine with very little. Help to go to the bathroom. I can't wipe myself. As long as you take my meds I'm fine. Any queastions feel free to ask. I'm going back to sleep.

I will post pixs as soon,as I take some.

Im really feeling so much better. I hope these drains get taken out on Tuesday...they r a pain in the neck! I started just taking Advil(for the swelling). I'm not having any pains. I'm gettin in and out of the bed myself and going to the bathroom. I'm taking short walks around the house.
My left breast is more swollen than the right. I don't like that.

Had first bowel movement since surgery. Oh that was a relief. It happened last nite. I drove myself to the PS OFFICE yesterday. I'm able to get up and down go to the bathroom take 15- mins walks. I cant believe how good I'm doing. I need my hair done BAD!!!

I'm 9 days post op today. I'm not having any pain. I'm just having a hard time falling asleep. I took two tylenol sleep didn't work. I was up all nite. That's the worst feeling being groggy and can't sleep. I'm not a pill popper I don't want any scripts from the DR. Hopefully I get some sleep tonite. I don't like sleeping on my back.
I'm able to do MOSTLY ALL personal things myself. Including taking a shower! It's a beautiful day I'm going to take my 5yr old out today.

I'm 17 days post op. I'm doing good. I'm just still having problems falling asleep and staying asleep. Dr. Prescribed Ambiem...however I don't like popping pills. One thing I Do Not need is to become a pill addict! I'm not stressed. I'm not uncomfortable nor am I in any pain. I don't know what the problem is. I just know I'm tired of looking at the ceiling watching. The hours go by....

I'm 18days post op and feeling great. I have been standing straight for the past 3 days. Yay!!! No more back pain.
Yesterday hubby and I did a lot. We first went to the mall to go to VS and Aero. We then went to Red lobster for lunch. Then It was off to BJ'S for household items. Last was the supermarket for groceries. We came home around 4pm and had " Relations" and I went to sleep! It was a good day.

Today we went to Sands Casino. Had lunch gambled a little. Now I'm back home. Hubby is cooking Sunday Dinner. He's been doing so much around the house since I had the surgery. I love him.

I wish I would had gotten my Boobs bigger. I'm a full 34C...I would like them to look bigger. But I still love them big improvement from before.

Well I'm exactly three weeks post op. I'm walking straight(not completely) it still feels like my shoulders are hunched a little. I'm walking faster for sure. I do mostly everything by myself. I'm still not lifting anything too heavy.
Hubbie went to NEW YORK its his bday on Thursday. I got him tixs to the Knicks game at MSG tonite. I would love to party with him this weekend but I'm not up to it. I told him to go to Maryland and hang with his cousin.

The discomfort was.because the rt. Breast was dropping. It stopped I'm fine now. My two yr. Old came home tonight. I have not seen her in almost a month! She came back a big girl. No more pull ups no pacifier and no more bottle! I'm so proud of her. She just turned 2 three months ago. I made the mistake of lifting her up. I got a little pain in my navel area. It stopped 10 mins later.

I thought it supposed to get better as the time passes. I looked better 2wks ago. I saw my PS...he says nothing is wrong it will Ho down.

I'm three months post op. I'm doing great. Thank God I have not had any complications. I'm still dealing with the tummy swelling. I wore my binder again and woke up supper flat.
I love my BOOBIES!
I'm busy with kids graduations Nd planning a family vacation.
I hope all is well with everyone.

in three days i willl officially be ONE YEAR post op. I will take a pix and post it. Im going in next week to have a dog ear revised on my left side. This has been a healing process. The year flew by. The days are going by so fast. I wish I would have gone larger with my breast. My stomach stills swells at nite. to make it go down I put a tight belt around it. Knowing what I know now I dont think I would have gotten a tummy tuck. The breast I would do over in a heart beat! I just might get them done over for my 40th bday in 4 years...who knows we will see. After getting the surgery I started noticing other things on my body I do not like...My butt and hips! Im not going to become one of those who gets like 27 surgeries done. I promised myself that. Ill just exercise. Well I thank God I had no complications of any kind, Im in good health. Everyone compliments me. I love the way my clothes fit. I dont like the way i look naked because of the scar. I always have to cover it.
Allentown Plastic Surgeon

The doctor did a great job. I love my results. I can't wait until. Swelling goes down and I completely heal. It just seems like he he was rushing this morning when he came to change my dressing.

WARNING: Totally weird post coming...Ms G - I posted before how much I LOVE your one piece suit. I'm totally bummed that Vicky's isn't selling that one anymore and I can't find that one (with the belt) anywhere. If you ever want to sell it let me know! I can't find anything else I like as much as yours.

BTW..how were your vacations?

That's great. I have to wait until the end results to see how I feel about the TT. I'M still swelling up.
I know its boring just staying in the house and trying to sleep can be hard in the beginning. Take pixs when you try on clothes youll love how you look!

Are you going to go bigger? 375 is very moderate... I've decided to go with 400-425 cc high profile implants. I'm still deciding either to get saline or silicone. I love the way both implants feel. I'm soooo confused and my surgery is in 9 days!
