I am about to turn 40 and is been about ten years that I've been thinking and researching about this. After reading countless of posts and research I've decided that its about time... You only live once and people are always going to criticize your decision, but I am happy with it and will ignore those negative comments,,,

Thanks so much for starting your story on RealSelf! Less than a month to go.

Here's a great post about what the first three days post op were like for our RealFriend Blonde in Bluffton. Hopefully you'll find it helpful.

Please keep us posted as the big day gets closer. When are you flying to the DR?

The day is getting closer!!! I already have most of the supplies for the trip!!! Mammogram is done, blood test on may 2, I can't wait!! Sad to leave my kids but my husband will take great care of them..., anyways now I find myself waking up in the middle of the night and first thing I do is get my cell phone and look at more before snd after pictures!! I hope this is normal to be this excited and anxious!!!
Its normal to be nervous. I had my surgery with Dr. Robles and am so happy with my results. She is great. You'll feel so much better after you have your work done. Good luck!

Awesome results!!

Hello ladies:)) sorry for the delayed update, there is no wifi near my moms house in dominican republic. The surgery went well, the first 3 days were the worst... I am now 14 days post surgery and loving my new body!!!
I still have the drain on until it drains 50cc or less in 24 hours For two days . I think it will be out soon because today was less than 50ccs.
I love the super low scar on the tummy tuck.. Below the previous cesarean scar, I love it! So far every post op appt Dr. Robles is happy she says everything looks perfect. OMG I really love my breasts I went with 400 ccs silicone implants and they look sooo good..
Dr. Robles did an amazing job on my body, I am still a bit swollen around the tummy tuck incision but it looks amazing!! I now have a tiny waist courtesy of Dr. Robles
I will stay in the Dominican Republic for 10 more days to make sure I rest and recuperate properly..
I will be posting pictures soon!!
Thanks for your support LADIES!!
Happy healing
Thanks

5 months post op

Hello ladies, sorry I've been busy lately, but I will post updates monthly with pictures so you can see my progress..
I feel great no pain but a little discomfort while laying on my tummy, it is still hard to stretch, I also feel some weird sensation while I am touched in the waist.. I guess it is still healing... Anyway
I love the way my body looks now, I tell you, my confidence is so high right now!!!
I now officially can wear s two piece bathing suit snd feel good.
Best decision ever!!!

Ellie, just had to check out your profile, and you look amazing and great in your swimsuit. It was totally worth it ! It is much less expensive in DR than here . Congratulations on your new self !
