Two Kids, Tubes Tied..It's time. TT , breast lift , BBL Aventura, FL

I wasn't supposed to be able to have children and...

I wasn't supposed to be able to have children and I never really wanted them until I met my husband ..turns out I had cysts on my ovaries and couldn't conceive for many years but after a lot of prayer I found out that I was pregnant with my son After he was born I considered having my tummy tuck. I was on birth control but it failed and then I got pregnant with my daughter. My son is now 2 1/2 and my daughter is five months old. I'm ready to go for my consultation with Dr. Salama in Aventura Florida on September 10. I sometimes experience feelings of guilt and sometimes I wonder if I'm being selfish by wanting my perfectly flat stomach back, but reading all the reviews here in real self makes me feel that I shouldn't feel that way ; that I deserve to look the way that makes me feel comfortable so I made my appointment for September 10 . I'm almost 100% sure that he is the doctor for me I'm only flying out for one day so that I can get home quickly and be with my kids . I'm a little worried about how they'll be cared for when I am unable to care for them during recovery but I guess I will be flying a family member out with me to help me and also maybe have someone stay here with them to help my husband. I hope to schedule the surgery for the beginning of January 2015. Four months after the TT, I will return to Dr. Salama for BBL depending on how my profile looks after the tummy tuck.

Getting closer to my Aesthetic ideal

So the date for my consultation is set and my plane ticket is bought! I'm very very excited to go and meet Dr. Salama and get more info! One thing that has been on my mind though...I have a 6 month old daughter. I worry about teaching her to have a positive body image in a world where plastic surgery is like a trip to the dentist. I believe what I am going to do is ok, but I can't honestly say that I would know how to explain it to her as she grows up..or t

TT and breast lift booked 1/20/2015...BBL booked for 5/18/2015

So dates are booked. Dr.Salama is my surgeon and he and his staff are top notch. Plane tickets are bought, arrangements for child are have been made, and I finally got my husband on board with the whole thing :). In preparation I also joined nutrisystem and picked up my gym game. Down 5 pounds and 30 more to go. I'm so excited about the whole thing and not feeling guilty for wanting this for myself, at least not at the moment. Now I just need to see a doctor, get supplies and book my stay at the recovery house.

Exactly 3 months from today :)

My first round of surgery which includes a breast lift and tummy tuck is exactly 3 months from today, and my BBL is 7 months away. I'm sooooo excited to start this journey and I'm doing really well on the weight loss and also improving my fitness level to better withstand the procedure. I will be staying at the serenity recovery house, where Dr. Salama's patients most often go, from 1/19/2015 to 1/31/2015. Anyone out there going to be there around the same time?

Mommy makeover 1/20/2015...Dr. Salama...Hoping for earlier date

Sooo I'm now a month and 20 days away from my surgery date...I'm so thrilled and anxious at the same time. I now have everything I need in my suitcase or on the way in the mail via amazon. I think I have spent about 250 on supplies. My list was comprised of many different lists belonging to other realselfers. Once my surgery is complete I will post my list of what is actually useful and what you can skip.
I'm really hoping for a sooner date than the January 20th because I'd like to be further along in the healing process by the time of my baby girl's first birthday on February 4....
