32 y/o Mother of 4 with boobs to the floor. 5'3'' 136 lbs. (pics soon).
Glad I found real-self, The support you ladies show is awesome.
For 6 years i have avoided the mirror as much as possible. My daughter is 2 and is the completion of my loving family. boys 11,7,4 were all 7 lb. bundles of joy, baby girl was a whopping 9lbs and finished off the last bit of boob i had left.
Nov.6 I had my first consult and had so much fun trying different size and shape implants with the nurse. It wasn't until the Dr came in did it go down hill!!! He was nice and professional but wreaked of cigarettes. EXAM.. was told I needed a lift that i didn't want in fear of having an ugly scar and small areolas (no offence ladies). Here's the killer and what had me almost in tears, he explains that the space between my abs is too large and a TT will only benefit me if i opted to have a piece of strattice place between the abs then stitched together. bio-medically grown pig skin. at this point i had the oh hell no face, got dressed and made my way to the coordinator and giving an estimate of 18k.
FFWD to 2nd consult where i felt welcomed right away. I was informed of everything in detail before i was to undress to my shame. Consult was great and informative Dr went over previous pt before and after photos with me. EXAM ...now i understand why i need the lift and NOOOO pig skin for my tummy YES!!!! now im on my way to happiness in me. and 2k cheaper with better outcome and a overnight stay!!! AWESOME
It pays to be patient and get more than one consult after all you have to put your life in someone else's hands and trust that they are able to meet your needs. Pre Op visit is not until FEB which sucks, got a promotion at work and cant take off the time needed until march...SMH im ready NOW

I had a consult with him and I think I am doing the mommy makeover next month with him! I am going to make my final decision Thanksgiving. Where else did you go for consults?

Dr. Rottler very nice staff was also very nice. I just felt as if I wouldn't get the result I wanted and didn't want to be experimented on I had asked if he had used strattice abdominally and he no but used it in breast reconstruction. Then the risk of infection wasnt what I wanted to hear.

475 on rt and 450 on left I was leaning back in the recliner on these pics standing pics will be posted after shower today.

No energy and Im just being honest

The recliner has become my best friend but I am sure as hell sick of sitting in it! The drains suck and I just wanna heal already! I started stool softener and a mild laxative before surgery and still no action. Literally the poop is weighing me down lol im sure I would feel much better if I could just go ALREADY! I strongly suggest you ladies have 24hr help you will need it my husband and family has been awesome. If your ps offers experal ...(pain shot) get that too! and your good to go basically the down side is the CONSTIPATION. I don't really know what else to say so whatever questions you ladies have no matter what it is or if there is a pic from a certain angle you wanna see let me know, I will answer as long as im awake my tablet is here next to me.

I am having a lot of swelling in my belly. I haven't removed the CG since the surgery on Tuesday but my tummy is definitely bloated. Are you experiencing this?

Girl yes especially after eating try loosening the garment a bit that may help I find it hard at time to take a really deep breath
