Hey ladies, I am a mother of two, a 3 year old girl and 15 month baby boy. I always knew I was going to need a tummy tuck once I had children, even in my thin days when I was 125lbs (Iam 5'7"), I was never able to use a two piece bathing suit because I always had a sad looking belly button. For some reason I have always had a fat buldge above my belly button. Once I had my children obviouly my skin stretched but it never went back to normal. I have that hanging lower belly, which I call it the front butt, I have no waist. Had my first consultation in Sep 2011 and contemplated the idea of spending so much money on ME, but after 3 months I knew my body was not going to go back to the way it was, because I never had a flat tummy, so why not invest on my body, after all I will live with my body forever. My husband is being super supportive, so I have scheduled my TT with Lipo and a BBL for Feb 3. I am super excited, nervous of course, I am afraid of the unknown, because I have never been under or had any type of surgery. But I am total faith in my doctor and I am so ready to do this. I am preparing myself mentally for what's to come.

Toiler raiser (I RECOMMEND..it's crazy how much we use our ab muscles, so not having to sit all the way down on the toile was great)
Crackers (take some with you to the surgery center, and have some with you at all times, helps with the nausea)
Cough drops (YES it hurst like hell when you sneeze or cough)
water bottle (it helped me keep track of how much water I was drinking)
Anti Nausea pills (see if your doctor can percribe a few of these, I would have died if I had to throw up, and I felt like that the first day when I ate something, so I just poped a little pill before I ate and I was fine)
Gauze or maxi pads (to put by the drains, and by the lipo holes...those little holes also release fluids)
crock pot (I would thrown in veggies, some chicken drumsticks, some water with a few herbs and "little" salt and make my own chicken and veggies soup)
Stool softerner and Fiber powder
Coconut Water (Yup, this is better than gatorade, this water has electrolites and it help avoid dehydration)
Overall, I am very happy with my healing process, I feel wonderful, yes I am swollen too, but it sure beats the front butt I had. It's a slow recovery and if you are like me, that once you feel a bit better you go back to your normal routine (kids, househould, etc) slow down, listen to your body. Happy healing to all my TT ladies, and for all of all of you who are still trying to make the decision, I say do it, do it for you because you deserve to invest in yourself, you will feel so happy you did, I know I do!!!

In regards to my BBL - I took awhile to review because it takes a few weeks for all the swelling to go down and really see the final results. In my case the results seem to get better every day. It's been 7 weeks and I love it. The doc put in 720cc on each side. I would have wanted a little more because you really don't know how much volume you will keep, but I also didnt want a huge butt. Recovery was a bit difficult(uncomfortable) because you have to be on your sides ALL the time. It didnt really hurt, your butt just feels sore and hard for about the first 3 weeks, but now it's nice and soft. My clothes over all looks great but now I have to buy jeans that are made for curvy woman to go with my curves. Which I don't mind :) DOn't hesitate to ask me questions about both procedures, I know I didn't have anyone to ask until I found this board.
Sorry for the bad pics of my butt, I will put a...
