I've been considering having a "Mommy Makeover"...
- 3 Feb 2013
I've been considering having a "Mommy Makeover" since having my last child but my major concern at the time are my breasts. I'm 5'1 and weigh 160lbs. My weight has been stable for the last 2 years. My problem with my breasts are that they are too big for my frame and body type. I have alot of discomfort in my shoulders, back and neck due to my large breasts. They also affect my posture and Im always slouching because of the added weight. It seems with each pregnancy my breast GREW in size and needless to say they begin to sag as well. I've seemed to have lost what I believe to be body fat because my weight has been 160lbs for 2yrs now but I appear smaller all over except for my breast & tummy from multiple pregnancies. I really just want to be comfortable in my own skin. Im overall a confident person but I feel that my breasts make it hard for me to workout without my neck and shoulders becoming sore and stiff. Besides the physical issues I find it hard to find clothes I like and that fit me properly. Esp during summer months I always find pretty sundresses but can never buy them because although the dress fits I can never fit my boobs in the top portion without them looking like they're binded down, smashed & spilling out the sides of the dress. Okay...okay I'm ready to kiss these 38DD goodbye. Will be having them properly measured soon because its been awhile but I guess my question is where do I start as far as insurance & financing goes??? Are there any doctors in NC, SC, GA area that have exceptional refs and patients who have had pleasant results?
TT, BBL, BR all in one procedure?

Okay...deep breath. Now moving on to my tummy. Again after multiple pregnancies and recent weight loss I've been left with sagging skin in the lower portion of my abdomen. It just hangs there. Thankfully I have a small waist and manage to hide the extra skin by wearing high waist pants and loose tops, but what happens when the clothes come off is another story. It affects my sex life because I'm not comfortable having sex completely naked. I always have to wear a tank top or tee-shirt to cover up my the "SAG" It doesn't seem to bother my husband, but I know that men are visual creatures and my body is not the same as when we met. I can't even begin to explain how I cringe when if his hands go anywhere near my tummy. I don't feel it's right that any part of my body is off limits to him. I do understand with surgery there is reasonable scarring and that I can deal with. It's just the thought of me never seeing on the outside how i truly feel inside that's disappointing. I feel I have a obligation as his wife and to myself to be in the best shape possible. I know it's impossible to stay forever young, but why not put my best foot forward if options are readily available? When I look in the mirror I see a beautiful woman, but I really dislike the limitations I have since my figure has changed.
Last but not least of my rant and I'm in no way complaining, but forgive me if it sounds this way but initially my goal was to only reduce breast size with diet and exercise, but the truth is we can't choose where our body burns or stores fat. When I begin dieting & working out my legs and butt were the first slim down. I never had a big butt to begin, but it has always been a nice size. I was a size 9 during my first post and now about a size 7-8. I have more volume in the crease or cuff and less volume up top. But again, after losing weight I have almost no projection and my cuffs are disappearing as well! Let me be honest, I was not expecting this to happen at all! This is why i'm now considering BBL (fat transfer)
My questions are can I have all 3 procedures done at once?
Would having all done together affect my results? eg, BBL, TT & BR
Sleeping on back destroy fat transfer to butt?
Sleeping on tummy even possible after tummy tuck?
Would it be a good idea to maintain my current weight of 156lbs in order to have enough fat to transfer?
What is the recommended BMI for fat transfer?
How would I sleep having all procedures done? BR, TT, BBL
I know it's alot to take in but if anyone has had multiple procedures done or has preformed them or aware of anyone who has please feel free to share or any advice would be greatly appreciated! I will post pics to give you a more accurate description of my problem areas in this post or next post update.
Thanks loves :)
