Tummy Tuck and Lipo on sides

I'm a Mother of four children 21, 18, 10, and 3 :)...

I'm a Mother of four children 21, 18, 10, and 3 :). Ive considered having a tummy tuck for about a year now. I have pretty much an hour glass figure on the thicker side but with my kids being born via C-section, I was left with all the extra skin that came along with it lol. I recently had a birthday and my theme was "Still Fine at 39" and I can't wait to reach Fabulous Forty! I feel I am more than deserving to have this surgery because I became a mom at a young age; 19. And it's been all about them every since. (Once you become a mother, you are not longer the picture, you become the frame) Just wanna live life not really caring about if my lower stomach shows as I want to let it all hang out and be free as a bird. My friend told me my body is God's gift to me and he didn't give me this shape for nothing; if you've got it, flaunt it if you will......My kids are awesome as they totally agree with her. With the age gaps of my Babies I have to assure people they have the same Dad so it's okay. But he is the one that is against the surgery suggesting he loves me the way I am... Of course he does but knows that the head's will Def turn once I go through with it.

I initally was going to Dr. Luis Suarez in Mexico but for the life of me can't get them to send me any pics of the actual incisions of other clients and I absolutely loooove the way all of the Lady's scars look per Dr. W. Robles.
I've been texting and emailing Laura but she's not moving fast enough for me lol. I definately want a more plump behind and my inner thighs done with a very low incision and a sculpted back.

I'm thinking of going in February once I get all of the negotiating done.. Ive been copying and pasting the list from the clients on this particular thread so I can be on point. I am a research-holic and I think i've found my PS :) THANKS to all that dont mind sharing.

I also Aspire to Inspire soooo

Happy Healing to you All and be blessed

I just added a new pic from the side with a dress on. I strongly feel that I dont need a BBL but wont refuse it as Dr Robles suggested it will make it rounder and perkier. Not looking for a 'Video Vixen' body cause in my opinion I was naturally blessed with curves, hips, big but and a size d cup. Only want a tummy tuck to get rid of the access skin from the additional gifts from God although they were c-section delivered :)

Happy Healing Ladies!!!
Good luck, also TJ you may want to do some research on lipo of the inner thighs..I wanted this as well but I noticed some women have horrible demples that you can't get rid of 1-2 years after lipo in that area...you may want to get lipo of the outer thights and tone the inner...just a thought...your gonna look great!

O..M..GEEEEE!!! I can not believe it! The time has come for me to depart! First thing in the a.m.....tears...of joy and excitement. I have been wanting this for soooo long. I almost feel guilty. But with a 21 and 18 year old along with my 10 and 3 year old. I keep thinking, 2 down and 2 to go!!!
So yaaaay me lol...Oh well, almost on the 'FLAT SIDE'!!!

Okay, here's the deal! I found a specialist that has an office in Miami. His Grandfather has been into denistry for 28 years...So, once Dr. Robles Driver picks me up from the airport, my first stop will be to his office to have impressions done for veneers, crowns and maybe an implant. After that I will be going to the hospital for blood work then surgery on the 9th. It will take about 7-10 days for my final seating with the Dentist so I will be updating or may even create another blog in regards to that for those that want good quality dental care while in the Dominican Republic. According to Laura and the Dentist, their offices are about 15 minutes apart.

P.s. Veneers are going to be roughly 425 a piece since im getting at least 13!!! Hope this goes smoothly...In the states they are like a grand. Will post more tomorrow once im in the clinic to advise on safe arrival :)
Wishing you a safe trip. Good Luck!!!

You welcome. I mainly did it because as I was walkin outside the airport looking for the sign with my name; I didn't see it. Mind you there will be several people holding up signs that dnt speak English. A bunch of taxi drivers wanting your business also. I had to walk up and down then finally saw this one guy having a conversation with two other women so I walked up to him, held his hand up, noticed my name then stomped my foot like WTH??? It was Wilson with my name on the sign being chatty but he was so cool otherwise :)

I'm so glad you posted the pics. I never met Laura and it looks like my homie Raquel will not be there when I go for my sx. Do you know what she's having? I want to bring her a gift

Smh at myself! Post op day 23!

I so just took this drain out all by myself lol. Wasn't expecting it to be so freaking long! I aslo left it in a few days longer to be sure of no Seromas but according to the research I did; leaving it in too long may cause an infection. Also; I've been takin amoxicillin even after I got home to avoid infection all together. I must admit, along the middle of removing it, I felt a burning sensation so be ware. No pain tho.! I must be one crazy person, in a good way tho. I had my daughter record it so i will find a way to upload it later but here is a picture....Thanking God daily for strength and courage! Happy healing

I am scheduled on June 18th. I think my cycle is coming on this weekend so I really hope my levels stable out. I am at 13.2 and I think I can get it a bit higher in the next week. At least 13.5. I need this Mommy Makeover to happen.
