I'm 26 years old,after 2 babies:due to loose skin on my belly and volume lost of my breast i used to be 34D now i'm at right-34b left-34c with no shape at all I have now decided to have a mommy makeover on Dec 22,2009

I had my surgery omg I made it!!!yee I know is to early to say this but ive seen my belly and i was so happy to see my results of course im still very swollen/bruising due to Lipo and also I have my buddies (my 2 drains) with me but I'm feeling great I had no pain at all!!!!! only concern- is I can't stand up straight yet also I'm scared of even trying to bend down is this feeling normal??? oh almost forgot also by breast aug...look great they finally have shape at first i kind of though they were too big for my body but after couple of days I'm actually loving them :-P

painfree mommy makeover which is great on Dec 22,2009 I had surgery tummy tuck, lipo, breast implants. So far so good on my new body except little stress on how my breast implants look anybody have any answers for me:/(

Tummy tuck: 1. pre op had lots of stretch marks...

Tummy tuck:
1. pre op had lots of stretch marks post op stretch marks have been really itchy also my whole body is actually very dry is it ok if i apply coco butter all over my body including my tummy? 2. I still have most of the tape on my tummy tuck incision but on some parts is really itchy is it ok to apply neosporin on my incision.? or what do you recommend? 3. what can i do to smooth out parts of the Lipo I have uneven lumps on me left side?

I surgery was dec 22,09 i am now exactly 4wks 5days
pros: flat stomach no more rolls,clothing fit better
cons: uneven lipo, itchy skin, itchy incision, dry skin

Breast implants:
1. I need help Left is bigger,rounder,softer,lower by 1/2 inch. Right is smaller,football shape,harder,higher? would massaging more often on one breast help? 2. I do have little pain on my Left breast nipple sensitive also i feel the implant under my breast is this normal? 3. should i consider revision surgery? how long should I wait for this? any extra charges? 4. if surgery is the only solution would that be only breast lift on one or both breast? or a smaller implants on left? or bigger on right?

after 2 pregnancies and weight lost i ended up with size R=34b L=34c with NO volume I was 34c before pregnancy so as you can see pre op Left bigger,lower,saggier. Right smaller not saggy (i think).

I had breast implants on dec 22,09 exactly I am now 4weeks 5 days post op....

please help I need lots of answers before I go to my next appointment on 1-28-10 so I can discuss this with my Dr. thank you

would massaging my right more often bring it lower and a little more similar in size or do I need a bigger implant on my right or either a lift on my left can that be corrected at no cost or do I have to pay??? please help me I'm very sad and there very noticible that people can actually tell a difference in size.

staff very friendly/you can easily trust Dr. he kept checking on me the same day of surgery which made me feel safe but my consultant is stupid. she quoted me with breast lift but Dr said I didn't need it so she stole me some money:-/

Please keep us posted on how you're healing. Most doctors say that swelling takes several weeks to subside enough to judge your treatment's results.

Looks like mines. My left is still a bit swollen and not as low as the right one. Maybe soon. I hope. But you look good.

How did you sleep during your first couple of days. I was told that a recliner would be best. I don't own one, but if it will help, I get it ;-)

well i used the sofa it was much comfortable than the bed just put about 2 pillows on your back & one under your knees to make your self feel more comfortable.

You have Good results. You are still swallen and very early after sugery. There is a difference in the breast size and shape, it could be a collection of blood in the left or swelling. It is normal not to be able to stand straight give it about 2 weeks. The breast will be judged in 6-12 weeks

You look wonderful!!! I have 3 children 5, 3 & 7 mos. Do you think I should wait till the baby is about 18-24 mos old? I wont be able to hire someone to help me. I know my mom & mil will be around for about a week after but thats about it. What do you think? p.s. looking to get a TT and B.I.

well all your babies are still really young they may not be able to help you out re:about your 7 month baby does he/she crawl/walk?? also are you a stay home mommy than I think you should do it if you work and just taking days off then I would recommend for you to wait untill baby knows how to walk properly 18-24months as for me its been really hard with the baby he is now 15 months old he of course does not bother me at all but when it comes to changing his diaper its just so hard because you dont have the same strenght before surgery but I do have a 11 year old daughter that helps me out :D also remmember is just not only 2 weeks for post-op recovery you need to wait 6-8 weeks in order to lift/carry anything hevier than a milk gallon..hope this helps :P

Give it time. You are going to feel that pull for a very long time and that is good. You want to have been pulled tight. I got really good at using my toes to pick things up for me. :) Ejnoy your new body you will continue to see changes so be patient.
