It's About Time - Birmingham, AL

Where to start...I'm 40 yrs old 5'6"...

Where to start...I'm 40 yrs old 5'6" 130-137 lbs. i have two girls 17 and 14. i have always wanted to have a beast augmentation. well about this time last year i was killing myself exercising and eating healthy. nothing i did helped my lower belly so I started having PS consultation. In my 2nd consult the PS found a large cyst on my ovary. . He ordered a CT (Really large cyst they drained 1700 cc off it) and referred me to an GYN Oncologist. long story short they removed both ovaries and no cancer, So 9 months later here i am.

I'm having beast aug and mini TT and some lipo March 7th. I'm so excited and very nervous. I'm hoping the mini TT will be enough. when i had my last surgery the Dr tighten my upper ab muscles. my surgeon erasures me it will be enough and I trust him very much. the other thing is the breast i'm a B or a small C depending on my weight but I'm flat on the top does that make senses? i don't want to look fat once i have them done. the other thing is the lipo. if he does my abdomen will my love handles look even bigger. I feel like I'm now obsessing over everything. I will post pics i feel really exposed posting beat pics but maybe someone can help me figure out what i need to do.

Don't know about ba yet. The Dr ordered 3 sz. Anywhere from 325 to 360 cc. I don't want really big ones. I want to be a full perky C. My Dr says I don't need a lift. I hope he's right. Sister 5 did u have a mini TT? I need to go read your blog. I will soon as I get on my big laptop. It's hard to do this on my phone.

You are already in fabulous shape, you're going to have great results. I too had large cyst on ovary that had to be removed and dr had to make incision like a c-section in case I had to have a hysterectomy. My loose skin just hung over it as you can see in my pic with Levis on. What are you deciding on breasts? I didn't want to go big, just not me. I wanted to fill out what I had so I ended up going with 215 cc mentor gel under muscle and love, love them! Just enough to fill them without having a lift done either. Good luck to you-keep us posted!

At only 2 weeks I really wasn't up to doing a whole lot, but everyone heals at a different rate. Good luck and speedy recovery...oh and is your hubby against surgery? You'll find many on here that that's the case-mine big time! Hope he comes around for you in the end.

OMG....out patient center called.....anesthesiologist called..and paid for UGH..this is really happening!
Ok VJ how are you doing now? Sounds like surgery went well and you aren't in too much pain, keep taking those meds. Be sure to move around as best you can but carefully and slowly. You are on the healing side and on your way!!! You'll be so happy you did this.

How are you feeling? Did you end up getting the muscle repair? I thought of you last night when I was changing and realized my breasts were swollen. It looked like I'd gotten a BA with the stitches. :) I'm sure I wont get to keep them.

Everything went good! I opted to stay overnight. I don't think I couldn't home home. I haven't seen myself yet. Keeping pain meds on broad.

They are going to go down a lot from all the swelling and your mini tummy tuck you will still have swelling there and look how good you are already! I would be thrilled to look like you!!

I stayed very busy and by the end of everyday I really felt it. advil has been my best friend. I go back to my wonderful Dr tomorrow. I hope he tells me I can lose the binders. I woop post more pics later.

I'm still a little sore around my abdomen but not to bad. Went to the beach this passed weekend . It was so nice not to worry about the roll of skin hanging over my swimsuit bottoms. I'm loving my new body !
You look awesome!! How are you feeling? Would you say you are totally back to normal? Do all of your pre-op clothes fit...or maybe even smaller?

It's been 13 days. I'm still feeling sore and swollen in my abdomen. Back to work....taking it easy. This weekend I was feeling so good the weather has been beautiful. I sat out in the sun all Friday, Saturday and sunday. I even went for a motorcycle ride ( my SP would kill me if he know ). I can't wait to be 100% again. I have to keep telling myself It's only been 2 weeks. I'm over this binder!!!!!
