Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation and Lipo of the Flanks....best Decision I Ever Made!

- 24 Nov 2009
I had a breast augmentation and tummy tuck with lipo to the flanks back in April 2007. I was 31 at the time and had given birth to five children. My body, needless to say, was not repairable by conventional means of diet and exercise. I had a large tummy that "hung" from my body and my once very large breasts were permanently headed south.
I had initially planned on a breast lift, rather than an augmentation, but decided against it a week before surgery because the idea of adding any more scars to my body was starting to freak me out. My Dr. suggested I get a large implant (650cc moderate profile, saline) that would fill me back out, but not lift me up and I agreed.
My surgery went very well, no complications. I was a little surprised at the level of pain, but I would do it again in a heartbeat. The implants felt like a gorilla was trying to beat its way out of my chest and the flank areas that had been lipo'ed felt like they had been beaten with a baseball bat. Ironically, my stomach hurt the least, at least at first, because I had a pain pump for the first few days. When I was fully healed, I had a flat stomach and a really great set of boobs.
I must say that my only regret is that I didn't get a higher profile silicone implant rather than the saline. I may go have then exchanged at some point.

Dr. prepared me for the worst. He made sure that I was aware of any and all possible negative outcomes and side effects. He didn't sugar-coat anything just to make the "sale". His bed side manner is great and my results were outstanding! I highly recommend him.
