I'm 30yrs old, mother of 2, age 10 and 2. Got pregnant at a young age which gave me a lot of stretch marks, just totally ruin body. Have never worn a bikini in my life. 2nd baby was C-section which left a scar so I figured, ya kno what the scar is already there, if I get a TT, it's just gonna be longer so why not and since I'm already under GA, why not get a BA/lift also. I've been wanting this for a very long, just didn't have the courage or funds to do it but after saving up for the past 10 yrs im finally able to afford it and my determination have never been stronger.


I have to say, this is a wonderful website, I'm so glad I stumbled on it. Everyone here is so supportive of each other even though we are strangers, we have the same goal and reasoning for getting this done.
I'm having my surgery on Sept. 20th, so far it has not hit me yet because I am not nervous at all and have not got any supplies yet. Physically im ready, mentally...idk what to think,I am going to need a lot of help from all you expert who have done this before me.


I'm 5'1, 135 lbs, belly rolls that won't go away no matter what I do, saggy, lop-sided boobs so gonna all that fixed or alter or whatever u wanna call it. Well that's it for now.

Omg did I just paid in full for my MM! Sure did,...

Omg did I just paid in full for my MM! Sure did, I'm officially Broke! Lol...I guess it's no turning back now. Had my pre op today and it went well. Now let the countdown begin...15 more days... Yikes! >_

Okay so it's starting to sink in that I'm really doing this. My boyfriend went and bought me a Lazyboy power recliner (he loves me). Im organizing all my meds and dressing supplies, clothes...etc. im so anxious I hope I'm wont be disappointed, well I hope I wake up! I keep reminding myself that if a C-section is worse than this should be a piece of cake...omg I want this done and over with already!

OMG! This is Not happening right now. Just 3 days...

OMG! This is Not happening right now. Just 3 days before my surgery and I have a UTI. This sucks so bad and I come home to find out my 2 yr old has a fever!? Why of all days!

Today is the big day. Wish me luck. Oh can someone please tell me how to upload pics? Omg my stomach is in knots right now, I'm driving to the hospital in a couple minutes.

2nd day post op and I'm feeling okay, it feels like a c-section all over again, boobs feel so engorge and incision hurts but too bad, been sleeping all night but goy up to use the toilet 4 times. I can't wait for the soreness to go away. Have not vomit which is good but my throat is so dry I've been trying to cough up thiS nasty phlegm, is it ok to take a halls drop?
How's all sept surgery buddies doing? Would love to hear y'all, happy healing ladies and Whoo Hoo we made it to the flat side, finally in recovery mode!

2 day po. Took a shower and it felt great but took a toll on me, almost past out. Boobs are hard as rocks, more like boulders and it's so high. Feeling better noe that the dressing is off, couldnt see my TT incision tho since there's a big tape covering that whole area. Gonna have to ask PS if I can pull/peel it off.

4 day po, yesterday was the worst experienced in this whole process, I've encountered the dreaded BM nightmare! I was breaking out in sweats, my stomach cramping and on fire, wanted to die and just kept crying and praying to God and pretty much wanted to turn back time and not do this. Took awhile but I finally went and felt better afterwards. Whew...stopping the pains and just sticking to Tylenol.

Bored to death and this whole laying down sleeping in the recliner is really getting to me. It makes me feel tired, headache, and just not good. When I get up to walk around I get winded o easily and have sit back down. I'm all alone at home, BF is at work and grandparents just came to get my son, I hate it that I can't interact with him I miss holding, hugging and kissing him. I really hate this, I really wisd I hadn't done it, what was I thinking, I wasn't thinking...

So I went in this morning and got one if my drains removed which didn't hurt at all, the other one will come out thurs. can't believe I drove myself but feels good to get out. Just have to keep telling myself to take it easy and let the healing takes its course but definitely never ever having another surgery again!

1 week post op today and I'm feeling pretty good....

1 week post op today and I'm feeling pretty good. Made some breakfast on my own and my boobs which was bothering me the most feels like its starting to settle, the hardness and tightness is still there but not so much, I can kinda tell a little difference. Both drains are out, only issue now is the swelling on my belly, it's not pretty at all, looks like a big bulge above my BB, good thing is, no more stretch marks or at least not so visible anymore. I guess it's true when they say that each day you feel better so looking forward to that, I just wanna go back to be normal. Happy healing ladies.

8 days po and I'm itching like crazy! Ahhhhh don't want to scratch but I can't help it.

so today marks my 12 days PO. went in this morning to see PS. He said everything looks great and healing properly. i can start wearing spanx now and also push my boobs down. he tooks stitches out and i can start on scar treatment. i have merderma but will order silicone sheets as i've read a lot of good reviews on it. as you can see i have dark skin pigment so im hoping to at least make the scar a little lighter if possible. feeling so much better than the first week. i guess its true that it gets better each day so all the ladies who've just had surgery, hang in there, it does get better.
ughhh everytime i look at the pics i get so digusted, it looks like ive been butchered..oh well, only time will tell...im just very impatient thats all. i hope that bulge on my tummy is just from swelling and not fluid build up. PS said not worry, its just swelling. well thats it for now. Happy Healing ladies.

So I'm 25 days PO today and went back to work. It was okay but by noon, my tummy swelled up like a balloon. Other than that, I feel great and boobies are dropping nicely. Happy healing ladies and for those who are close to their surgery, stay positive, you're halfway there.
