Hey girls! Ok so, I am 25, will be 26 when I get the surgery. I am a single mom of 2 kids, daughter is 6 and son is 4. Ive always weighed around 135 and im 5‘7. I gained about 60lbs with each pregnancy *sigh*.. My daughter was an 8lbs baby and my son was 9.5lbs… HUGE! Luckily I am now back to my pre pregnancy weigh, but things definitely don’t look like they use to. Being single, Its hard to be confident with a body like this. I have horrendous stretch marks, that will never go away because of how high they are. This I understand. But im looking forward to a flat stomach, getting rid of this stupid muffin top and finally having perky boobs with normal size areolas! Lol I have a pretty muscular body, and love weight lifting. Believe it or not I have very solid abs deep below all that mushy crap that will not leave no matter what I do!!
So anyways, I started research back in early 2011 and found this site. Im SOOO glad I did. Ive been going crazy debating on whether or not I should go through with it, but its an opportunity that I cant pass up. I still have a few consultations to go to, but im pretty sure I know what Dr. will give me the results that im looking for. I plan to do a Tummy tuck with breast lift and augmentation with some lipo thrown in there. Later on I also want a BBL, so im thinking of saving the fat on my inner thighs for that… we will see.
So, for my mommy makeover im waiting on a consultation scheduled jan 24th, that seems extremely far away but I have a good feeling about this one based on reviews!
Had a consultation a few days ago and it went...

OK soo anyway, Ive done a ton of research the past couple years but now it seems like its all happening so fast! in 2 more weeks it will be my pre-op!!! I havent bought anything yet, I just got scheduled for surgery yesterday! lol Ive printed out some lists of things to buy to prepare, but like many others ask, is there anything you just HAD to have?? Or things you WISHED you had?? This site is amazing and I would love as much help as possible. I dont have many people to talk to about this. I am not telling my family or friends. Only my mom will be around to help me. So I need as much support as possible!! haha Thank you girls!!! ttys :) :)
Ohh p.s... my Dr. does the no-drain tummy tuck. I was nervous at first but once I read about it and saw the results I was very impressed. Its a longer procedure because they
"place many "Progressive Tension Sutures" (PTS) to both eliminate the space for fluid to accumulate, as well as pull the skin and fat together under the skin, reducing the tension on the skin closure, and thereby reducing the thickness of the scar."
