5'2 ,130 pds, 3 kids, BL. BA. LIPO of Flanks and a TT

Hi, I have been going thru and looking at this...

Hi, I have been going thru and looking at this site for about two months. I think that this is the best thing ever. This site seems to make it a little easier and not to be that scared. A little bit about me!! I am a 32 year old mother of 3 boys eight, six and 4 months, and a very supportive husband. I have been wanted to do this for so long but i am so nervous. I found a wonderful plastic surgeon and I can not be more excited. This last pregnancy was so draining and hard I think it is my time :) wish me luck!!
Very exciting! What all are you getting done?

Here's a list of recovery supplies you might want to check out.

Please keep us posted!

Still undecided

I have 12 days left until my surgery and I don't know if I want saline or silicone. .my pre op is 3 days before my surgery and I don't think that is enough time to decide once I talk to the doctor!

OMG I'm finally at 7 days before my sx I'm so ready yet super nervous...This time next week I'll be getting peeped for surgery. .

Not helpful to some

I get a lot of good advice and suggestions from this website but as far as personally I don't really as if yall are helpful to me :( I just need advice from ppl that have gone thru or going thru like me..but it's lacking
I have not had my surgery yet, and just getting my girls lifted. They are large enough and with Enough tissue, just don't want them pointing south anymore. Wish I had suggestions about size and type. Hang in there , we really are a supportive group.

Have you decided on an implant size? I just had my mommy makeover so I haven't seen my results yet but I had stretch marks above my belly button like you. You are going to have lovely results I'm sure!

Does anyone know that name of the stuff that's supposed to help minimize bruising?
Arnica Montana, you can get pellets that go under your tongue. I bought mine at Whole Foods, which is sorta like Trader Joe's.

Today was a good day! Every hour I was able to get up and walk around! ! I was also able to move when I needed to! I'm really not good with pain and this is the worst!! As the anesthetic are wearing off I'm starting to itch like crazy, my mom and husband are god sent angels they change my gauze, help me walk around, feed me, change my drains and everything else, I'm an blessed
Nice to have your very own servants! And hope the pain subsides soon.

loving my body

I have to call my ps tomorrow about all this gauze every where and ask him can I remove it...my drains are only draining 20 ml or less so yayy to that. I did get a sneak peek at my belly and idk what to think :( it's super wrinkled and so tight. Has anyone else stomach wrinkled at the bottom and straighten out? If so how long did it take
Yes,mine had rippling at the bottom and Doc said it would smooth out and it did :)

Ok great I was starting to worry

Fresh air!!

Today was a good day!! I walked outside to smell the fresh air and attempted to help my 6 year old with his homework :) all with no medicine. I took it eventually, I talked to my ps if my drains are still low then I get to get them removed tomorrow! ! Right now they are draining g about 20 ml a day a pc..I really want to see my stomach and boobies together. Today I was so tight and my breast feel like I have been breast feeding and got a back up right now urrrgg...but that's how I feel today
Let us know about your drains, are they in or out now? Don't rush it too much though...
Reply
Happy healing I' also have wrinkles in the bottom and my vagina half swollen looks a hot mess.......time heals everything with good care and drinking plenty of water...protein is a must helps your body heal...including raw fruits and all the veggies ...keel is an excellent source for after surgery. Hope that helps.

One drain out!!

I went for my follow up she removed one drain and keep one in..she wants it to drain for a week to catch the extra fuilds I got my belly button cleaned...gross and repacked it. She said I'm healing great bruising and swollen on my back and hips..my boobies are great just huge and high. I fill like they gonna pop me in the eye lol
Congrats on the one drain out! Your waist looks so flat.and remember you are just five days out, keep on healing!
Reply

No more drains

Yayy I got all my drains removed yesterday! They gave me a compression garment too...Holy tight!! She said I was healing good and I was cleared to take a shower! I forgot to ask her could I slp in my known bed. When did yall start back sleeping in your bed? And when was yall able to stand up straight? Was there anything that yall did to help? I go back to work on Sept 2 and really don't want to be walking hunched over :(
Congrats! You should star walking straight....just listen to your body...I know it feels pretty weird...but the more you practice walking the better it will be for your back...my doctor told me to start walking straight on day 4...aslong as you can tolerate it. With sleeping in your bed you should have all the pillows available...try to always keep your knees slightly bend. I hope this helps

Don't know how to feel

I think my breast are to big!! I feel like I'm about to tip over I'm hoping that they drop and get smaller because I wanna cry they look so fake...I wanted natural and nice not huge and fake!!! My waist is so small it makes me look funny :(
Your boobs will go down..takes time have you been massaging them....this helps stimulate the muscle to accept the implants. Give it time. You look great.....:)
Reply
also another thing, If you start sleeping in your bed. Lay flat with maybe one or 2 pillows under your legs. It will help you to start training your body to stay straight
Reply
Once all of your swelling goes down, they will drop and fluff and look more natural. Hang in there! Mine use to be up in my neck but now they are where they should be. You are only 11 days post :) It will get better

First f/u

I had my first follow up today! It went well, they took off all my tape and gauze, I'm clear to massage and start scar therapy:) he said everything looked good and he will see me in 8 weeks to take after pics. I have a opening on my right breast they said it will heal with time. Does anyone recommend any certain type of scar treatments? Oh he also said no under wire or wire bras for a year! ! But I really don't think I need one because these things stay straight up lol

You look amazing!!! Davoudi is the best ;) How is your healing coming along?

been gone to long!!

Hey ladies!!! It's been so long it seems and so much has happened!!! Well I had a tough time for a while getting back into my normal routine. I went back to work it is not that bad because I sit down alot. However I still seem to swell a lot. This compression garment hurt like holy hell! I keep getting new ones and seem to be wasting my money! The one that comes to my knees..makes my butt super flat lol and the short one push up against my boobs! I think once I heel a little better I'll be fine! It's so hot I have to take breaks with the garments to breathe! I still can't lift my head above my head without it feeling like I'm going to pull a stitch. My boobs have went down alot and now I love them!! My nipples stay hard lol weird but it's ok. My ps said no wire bras for a year!!! So sports bras it is :) I do my massages on my breast but my right one I can kinda feel moving. I'm going to call them on monday. I absolutely Love my body and my stomach is so flat it's crazy lol
