Hello everyone I'm 34 yrs old I have a daughter...

hello everyone I'm 34 yrs old I have a daughter that is 14, I have decided to get a mommy makeover, I'm getting a breast redcution and a tummy tuck done at the same time, if I'm going under must do it all at once. I have never been under the knife before so I don't know how that is going to go,I'm soooo nervice I almost talked myself out of it and then realized what the hell was I thinking lol, I want this fat, and extra skin gone. Right now for my breast reduction I'm almost a DD and I want to go down to a C my doctor said that would be fine for my weight and for how tall I am of only 5'3 and 170 pounds yuk I have never told people that just out of the blue before, but I just think of the end results.

Ok have to say I am not looking forward to the pain I'm going to tell my doctor for the best drugs possible, I have talked to some ladies and they say to get better drugs then T3's, as I am going in this thursday Oct 28 2010 for my pre appointment then he will get my list of worries, then I will find out when my surgery date is, oh god it's just around the corner. well I will update as soon as I can. And by the way this web site rocks

before tummy tuck and breast reduction

Updated on Oct 28, 2010:
I went to my doctors today to see when my surgery date is and they said 4 weeks, I will know the date tomorrow when they call me. I had pictures taken, talked about how long the surgery will be he said 4 hours not to bad for what I am getting done. As for drugs he said percocets, vicodin and anti inflammitory so I'm happy my mind is at rest for now. I got asked if I wanted to stay the night in the hospital, so I'm thinking maybe but not sure if anyone has a done this before let me know. I will keep updating till my big day.

Hey everyone I'm 18 days post op now and doing...

hey everyone I'm 18 days post op now and doing awesome the pain that I had was only for the first week and it was very mild. I was on oxyc for 3 days then I went to tylenol 3 for a few days and just advil for a few days and now nothing can't believe how great I feel in 18 days. I'm still wearing my binder I feel so much better with it on.

My doctor said I can start massaging my scar next week at my 3 week mark, I'm on the fence with that one cause lots of ladies have told me that their doctors say to wait a month or 6 weeks so I don't know what to do, my scar doesn't hurt at all it's raised a little bit but no much, I'm still numb from the belly button to my scar line and that is normal, my girlfriend had her tt done 9 months ago and she still a little numb so I guess we all heal differently.

My boobs are awesome they are so perky I love them so does my husbsnd lol he touched them for the first time and he said they are still big I love him he is so cute lol. anyways I'm not sure what size bra I am yet, still a little swollen but my doctor said a nice C cup so I'm good with that. I bought 2 sports bras the other day for the first time ever and they fit sooo nice, so I'm just wearing them till my swelling goes down then I will order online at Victoria Secret can't wait. I'm going to Cuba in 40 days so I need to buy all new cloths and a new swim suit but have to wait till my swelling goes down I want to shop now. And also say goodbye to the fat roll this year baby it's gone.

Has anyone had any issue with their belly button starting to close? Mine is getting smaller and smaller. I go back to the doc in two weeks and suppose to get a shot to stop it, but I think I would need to get it redone, as it looks too tiny. Im 9 months post op

OH my god, is all I can say. You are bikini material. Im now excited about the possibility of me wearing a bikini to my daughters wedding in Jamaica. She gets married August 28th. I knew my belly would look better than it did before the surgery but never thought of actually wearing a bikini, but looking at you, I think I might be able to by the time the end of summer is here. Come on Jamaica, I will be ready!

You look awesome.

Wow, I am now 2 months post op. And it is a long way from being back to normal, but still look forward to it. Go back to PS on the 13 and I hope he tells me that my pubic area will get back to normal hate that is it huge. Well I just posted my new pictures if anyone is interested in seeing them.

glad that you enjoyed wearing a bikini!
looking forward to seeing your photos,
Swelling & puffiness is worse than the post op pain in my opinion. I knew the pain would end soon but the swelling feels like it's going on forever (I'm now 12 weeks)

Hope you had a great time! How was you scar in the sun? Did you enjoy wearing a bikini?
  • Reply
hey I wore my bikini and I had to keep pulling my bottoms up as they keep falling down. I was worried to make sure my scar was out of the sun, lets say nervous to make sure no one saw my scar all in all it was great not to hide my fat roll any more.

I still get swollen every day still when is it going to end?
I still get very tight in my tummy and it really bugs me, 10 weeks and still hurts a bit. I still wear my binder at night I feel better with it on. To me it looks like I have a little fat roll I don't know if it swelling still or what but I hate it. I tried running at bit on the road and my tummy felt so numb and it felt tingly it was a weird feeling, so I stoped and I'm not doing that again.

Daffy I have the most silly tan lines I'll show them when I take my new 10 weeks photos. soon I just got home on Monday night, I'll add some Cuba beaches too. to rub it in ( sorry ) lol any ways talk to you all later.
