Tummy Tuck with MR and Breast Lift

I gained 60 pounds with each of my 3 pregnancies! I am currently 5'3 and 142 pounds. I have been left with a large amount of saggy skin on my abdomen. I have wanted a tummy tuck for 2 years now. I finally made an appointment with a plastic surgeon and had my first consultation.

He suggested a fleur-de-lis tummy tuck with lipo of the flanks in order for me get the desired look I want! All I need to do now is schedule the appointment! I am just so scared. I am worried about complications and the amount of pain that I am seeing from posts on here! I know this is what I want, I just have to do it!

I am scheduled for the 31st of this month!! Less than 2 weeks away! I'm excited and super nervous at the same time! I changed my plan at my pre-op the other day. I'm not having lipo anymore. Getting a breast lift instead!' Hope the anxiety doesn't kill me before my big day!!

Estimated total surgery time for TT, MR, BL, and hernia repair is 6-8 hours!!! This seems like a long time to be under anesthesia!!

Very sweet of you to remember!! Unfortunately, I had to postpone the surgery. I developed an infection under the skin at one of my scars and he had to make a small hole to drain. He thought it best to wait a little longer for it it heal and be completely infection free which I agree with!! It is healing nicely and I will have the surgery in another month or so. I didn't want to have it during the summer but I also don't want to wait til the fall!!! I will let you know when I have the date scheduled! Thank you so much for remembering me. Hope you are doing well!! On the upside, since no surgery to tomorrow, LiveNLearn and I are going shopping in Philly for a few days and I can't wait!

I have a very easy revovery! One small infection at the T of the breast lift, which was never painful, just annoying!! I have been very lucky and pain free since first week!

That's wonderful! I hope to be like you! I'm getting a TT and BL on April 12. Very similar stats to you. I gained a lot of weight before and after four pregnancies. I've lost 70 lbs over the past few years and now I'm 142lbs at 5'4. Glad it's going so well for you!
