Hello ladies. I am 5'1 and weigh 125. I have 5 beautiful sons, they are 17, 20, 22, 25, and 31. I also have a 4 year old grandson and 1 year old granddaughter. I had a emergency c section with my last child that left me with a hip to hip scar and excess skin on my abdomin that I cannot exercise away... as you all know. I had a BA with donut lift 16 years ago after my last son, and wanted to do TT then... but I hemorrhaged so badly during my c section, the doctor would not do TT and BA at the same time. I had planned to go back the next year, but my husband was not very supportive of the idea and one year has turned to 15..... Since then, my husband and I divorced, and I have been raising my 4 youngest sons by myself for 12 years. It certainly became more difficult to save for the TT, and it felt super selfish to even think about while trying to take care of them on my own.
I was in a car accident 2 years ago, and the seatbelt compressed my left breast and herniated the scar capsule, causing the implant to poke through and you can feel a 'bubble' . Also, my right breast, which was always slightly larger than my right, (even after the BA) had started to sag over the implant. ( the Dr warned me that might happen) He had recommended back then to do a complete lift on the right side but I didn't want the additional scar.... so going that route this time. I asked about a doing a TT at the same time this time, and it was ok. I hadnt heard the term "mommy make over' until then.
In my clothes, I look great.... but I feel like a fraud. I wear a size 3 pants and a 36 DD bra. Most people wouldnt guess the flaws hidden by the clothing. I am super uncomfortable in a swimsuit, and just walking naked from shower to bed.
I had my labs done last week and the Dr. called me on tuesday, saying he wanted me to come in to talk about my labs... that freaked me out. I was super worried I was going to get the news, that I had some blood cancer, HIV or something crazy. It turns out I am slightly anemic... whew!! but now I am super worried about being able to have both surgeries done again. He put me on iron supplement and I am eating a iron rich diet... I will have my labs done again on monday... crossing fingers... I do not want to do one, unless I can do both this time.
I have purchased all my supples and paid for everything last week. Which reminds me! My Dr had everything also run through my insurance company.. what was going to be a $9800.00 procedure, plus $900.00 for the anesthesiologist, cost me out of pocket $4100.00 total!! my insurance picked up the rest! I didnt think they would cover any of it.
I posted 4 pics, I will post more after my procedure.. I am having (hopefully) TT without lipo,but with muscle cinching, BA with lift...
Wish me luck!!

So far, I LOVE what he has done. I noticed my left nipple is lower than my right (opposit of before surgery!) but Dr explained that the right breast had the lift & not the left, & it will take a few months for the right breast to relax & settle.... Either way, I'm happy. They are the same size finally. Tummy looks fantastic & dr said I am healing fantastically well.
My boyfriend has been taking care of me & I am SO thankful!!! He has been staying here with me & doing EVERYTHING. (he hasn't seen me naked since surgery tho, I won't let him) I did show him surgery pics of my tummy open & the pieces the cut off of me!!! He wanted to see that, so gross!!! I'll try & post new pics soon. Happy Healing ladies!!

This Dr has been exceptional in my complete patient care. He is open and honest, is very knowledgeable and stays current on procedures. He used a method on my BL that I have not seen before & I love it!! He is kind, gentle and respectful. Payment was easy and fair, my insurance covered half & he told me they did!!! Great dr!!!
