9 days til my big day. I'm so excited and scared too! My oldest daughter is 18, I always knew I'd do it, but had to finish having babies. My youngest is now 4 and I turned 40 this year, decided I wanted my college body back. Lost 30 pounds, 60+ inches and knew it was time. I want to drop another 10-15 pounds, but dr said I will be fine to lift now.
As a photographer I am super busy leading up to the holidays then usually have some what of a lull, so thought that would be the best time to do it. I interviewed 4 PS and found one that made me feel confident he could do a good job. I asked about a tummy tuck, especially after having 5 kids, and losing some weight, but he said I really didn't need one. That made me feel good, but he suggested I do a little lipo to get the remainder of the abdominal fat that was hanging on.
So on Nov 26 after Thanksgiving, I'm biting the bullet and going for it. So excited to have youthful breasts again. After 18 years of droop, it's been a long time coming. I will post before and afters when I take them.
36 hours til surgery and I'm getting a bit nervous...

My Doctor: Gregory Mantooth, MD
I found them online and had a consult. Turns out my own family doctor went to him as we'll for breast augmentation.
