I'm a 29 year old mom of 2 (ages 11 and 3). 135 lbs and 5'7". I've talked about getting "work" done for at least 5 years, so it's something I've considered for a long time. We recently booked a trip to Mexico (finally...our honeymoon!) and that spurred us to eat better and work out. After doing a month of P90x, I got pretty ill and had to take a month off to recover. While I did notice some changes, I was a bit frustrated that my weight didn't change much and, just like a typical guy, my husband was making faster gains than me. We got back on the program a month ago, but I began to wonder if I would ever lose the tummy bulge and knew that the sagging skin when I bent over would always be there.
I decided to go in for a consult for breast augmentation and lipo, but the PS said there wasn't enough fat and that lipo would be a waste of my time and money. Since I wasn't too concerned about eradicating the stretch marks, MTT would be the way to go he said.
The only two dates they had available were 10 days away from my consult or 2.5 months (which would put me too close to our Mexico trip without enough time to heal).
Therefore I've scheduled the surgery next week. The augmentation I'm not too worried about. It's the MTT that has me hyperventilating. I'm not fully understanding exactly what he's going to do. Yes, I will be clarifying this further in a few days, before I go in. However, I'm concerned about whether the results will be worth the cost and the pain (yes, I understand each person is different). I'm concerned about the scar being my next "flaw fixation". I'm concerned about the length of time I'll have pain and being hunched over and not being able to sleep in my bed.
If anyone has any advice to give me, I'll take it. I'm seriously thinking of cancelling the MTT and seeing if hard work outs is the better option. The downside to this is that if working out over the next 6 months doesn't work, then I'll still be uncomfortable in my skin....and even worse I'll be on my "finally honeymoon" while feeling this way.
