I'm a mother of 4 Kids. I always been struggling with weight going up an down, I'm really excited of the mommy makeover I been reading all you guys storys! I can wait to see the new me. But I'm so scare for the recovery I have to little ones that are always up an down running around the house.

I'm back !!!!! I need bbl

Hello everyone I'm back had tummy tuck in 2012 but never had lipo on. My back, and for more work out I do I can loose the fat in my upper back, :( ok so last year 04/13 had butt implants but didn't work for me, seroma came on the left cheeck and they had to remove the Implant on the left cheeck, so I been with one implant for almost a year, so now I decided take out the right implant and get a bbl and try to get a better back look!

Thinking to get sx in Tijuana Mexico

Thinking in getting sx in TJ it's cheaper and since I still owe from the butt implants my finance situation is not that good. Still paying for something that didn't work:( I'm waiting for my tax refund so I can get this surgery done.

I did it!!! I'm at my house. With allot of pain! Oh god please don't let me vomit again I feel like in going to die of pain in my tummy. So yesterday was so fast the last thing I remember is walking back to the operating room. Getting an iv in, and boom out. Then after 5 hours woke up with my clothes on and with a griddle on. So night wasn't that good for me I was vomiting and felling dizzy. Ok will post more later.

I'm here at the doctors. Today is the surgery. It's 11:54am and I'm praying for everything to come out right. So I came in did a pregnancy test and I'm waiting for the anesthesiologist to come in and talk to me after that doc is going to mark my belly with a sharpe . Will post more later wish me luck.....

It's official 3 more days for the surgery. Going crazy shopping around for groceries, milk, diapers for my babies. I'm still thinking if I should buy a recliner or just lay in my couch? So today is Easter I'm taking the kiddos to the park, enjoy now that I can couse for sure after Wednesday I'm going to be down for a couple of weeks.
