I am 37 years old and a mother of three boys ages 17,12,and 3). I am finally going to get a Tummy Tuck and hopefully get rid of most of my stretch marks. I am schedule for Febuary 10, 2011. And I am scared to death. I hate my stomach almost all my stretch marks are from my first child. I have been so unhappy about my stomach for 17 years now that I can't believe I am finally going to get a Tummy Tuck. I have also choosen to get a breast lift with some lipo on my inner thighs. I have read so many blogs on other peoples experiences with their tummy tucks that I am expecting the worst but hoping for in return its all worth it.

Ok only 2 more days until my tummy tuck. The anxiety is starting to hit. I am hoping I will love and be happy with my results. Thank goodness my husband will be home with me for 10 days after my surgery to take care of me. I will keep everyone posted once the surgery is over.

Hello! Well is has been 13 days post-op since my tummy tuck/lipo and breast lift. I would have to say it wasn't the worst pain in the world but the first few days I did really wonder why I did this but by day 7 I am so glad I did. I am no longer on pain meds. Once in awhile I will take some Ibuprofen but otherwise I feel pretty good. I am not completley walking straight but pretty darn close. I must wear my compressions or I wouldn't be able to walk at all. They sure do give you the support. I am still swollen and hopefully that will go down soon. My stomach is so tight. Its such a strange feeling I can't really explain unless you have had this procedure done you may know what I am talking about. I haven't tried any of my jeans on. Just been wearing sweat pants. I thought I would wait a few more weeks for more swelling to go down. I hope I fit in them and don't have that muffin top. I am so excited for summer to come I have been looking at some swimsuits that I thought I maybe able to wear but would have never bought in the past. I am excited to see how my clothes will fit and look on me now. I am so happy I just got a breast lift and didn't get the implants. I think my breast look 100 times better than before the lift. My PS did an amazing job. I am still very bruised where he did the lipo hopefully that will be gone here by next week it is starting to heal but too slowly for me. I just want to get back to doing my normal activities I am a very active person so these last few days have been getting to me not being able to do a whole lot. Well I will post more has the days and weeks go on and let you all know how I am doing. Thanks!
