I am a proud mother of three kids. I gained a ton of weight with my first pregnancy and then lost it quickly. Unfortunately, that left me with loose skin on my stomach and saggy breasts. My husband promised to pay for a mommy makeover after we have our last child.... And here we are!!!!! I am looking to have the surgery right before the winter break, so I can lump it in with time I already have off of work. I am in the consultation phase right now-- first one is with a real self doctor: Dr. Green. Wish me luck!!
One consultation down- at least one to go

I met with the first doctor and I liked him. The staff was friendly. My only gripe was that I waited an hour to get back there. I understand, though, that when you have an end of the day appointment, sometimes you suffer from little backups compiled throughout the day. Got quoted $16,000 which is well above the national average, but not too abnormal for the Cleveland area. I have no idea why Cleveland, of all places, is more expensive. I guess the market isn't big enough to encourage mass competition, sharing of surgery centers, etc. that bring the price down. But, if you would have a serious surgery that isn't elective, it would cost way more, so I guess I'll take it. We have most of the money saved anyways, so it's not the end of the world. We have been saving for almost a decade. I'm looking forward to my second consultation on Monday and then getting my date booked.
Booked with my doctor!!

Hi everyone. I am passed the one month mark and I'm trying to get ready. It seems that my brain is going a mile a minute about the best way to get ready for the surgery. I'm want to get my body in a good position to heal quickly. I have reduced processed food, increased protein, tone up arms and back daily. I am still occasionally drinking, but not too much. How long should I be without alcohol before the surgery? It is really calming!!!! Anyone freaking out with their date approaching??
