I am 35 and have four darling kids (5,3 and 2 year old twins). I had all of my kids in 3 1/2 years and my body paid for it.
I am an active person, I enjoy running and working out. I am 5'5" and 140lbs and I have curves, and have been this weight for about a year. I coud probably lose another 10-15 lbs, but I know my stomach and my large breasts wouldn't get much smaller. I had a wrinkly stomach and stretch marks on my tummy.
I starting talking to my husband last year about the possibility of getting a TT and a breast reduction and he was on board. I researched doctors and found out about others who had gone through the same thing. It was amazing how supportive and encouraging most people were, especially when they saw my tummy. I hid it well and very few knew how bad it was.
Well...today I am 8 days post-op tummy tuck and breast reduction. I am already so glad I did it! I am swollen and sore, but can already see a HUGE difference! I still have a ways to go on the recovery, but it is worth it!
I am so thankful for this site. I realized that I am not alone in all of this, and really my story isn't much different than anyone elses and am so glad we are in it together.
I am posting pictures from 3 weeks 2 days post-op....

I love my breasts! They are smaller and perky! I don't even have to wear an underwire and they have healed up really well.
Sorry these pics aren't the best.

Love my new breasts! They look great and am going to find some new bras very soon! Able to fit in my jeans, but it hurts at the incision so I wear spanx underneath so it won't rub. Probably going to be a few more weeks before I can wear them comfortably.
Thanks for all the nice notes!
It has been 7 months since my surgery. I am still...

I went on a shopping spree a few months ago, and was able to buy the same size tops and bottoms (mediums or smalls). I used to always have to buy Large tops and medium pants to cover my belly and and large breasts. I feel much more comfortable now in my clothes and am buying size 4 dresses now too!
Looking at my before and after pics reminds me to keep working out and make the surgery worth it. I don't want to let myself go and then act as though the surgery never happened.
I am posting my before and 6 month post surgery pics including my breasts. Not totally comfortable showing my breast photos, but figure someone out there may appreciate it.
Good luck to you all on this journey and God bless!
