I am a mother of five beautiful children. My oldest will be 18 in March and my youngest will be 1 in March. I gained between 35-45 pounds with each pregnancy. I am down to 173 pounds now but I am only 5'1. I've tried excercising and dieting, but can't get the results I want. I had 3 c-sections and 2 vaginal births. My body is screaming "HELP"!! I have the very droopy breasts and I am wearing a size 38DD bra and it's probably the wrong size. My stomach hangs over my underwears. It's just awful. I have been wanting a mommy makeover for years now. But I was always scared. I have now decided that it is time. My surgery is scheduled for May and I am so excited. I joined a gym to prepare myself for the surgery. I want to make sure I am strong and healthy for the big day. Finding this site has given me the push I need. I am not sure right now if my insurance will cover the breast reduction. I am still waiting to hear from them. So My cost might go up, but hopefully not.
