I am a 35 year old female, and Im having a FTT and a BL. I am super excited and a bit nervous. I am so thankful for this site, because thanks to you guys...I am feeling less nervous everyday. I am a full time student at UA, and a busy mom. I have a loving family and great man by my side. i finally have the time to do this for me, and I cannot wait. I had my son via csection and my body has not been the same since. I consider myself to be very active. I love to run, bike, do yoga, pilates...You name it, and I love it. But...no matter how hard I try I cannot get rid of my tummy and my love handle hips. And my boobs are so droopy, due to breast feeding and a rapid weight loss after pregnancy. So I made the choice to change it. I cannot wait to wear clothes without freaking spanx, and have boobs that dont have to be lifted up to wash under them! I am scheduled for 7/31, and have my preop on july 25th. I had my mammogram already, and I love my doctor. Ill keep you guys posted on how everything goes...and thanks for hearing me in advance, Im sure the closer this gets...the more Ill need you guys!

Had my preop yesterday. I think the reality is setting in that I am really doing this. I'm so nervous. The preop went great, and the nurse answered all my questions. I took a tour of thre operating room, and everything looked great. But I must say, that the thought of me cut open on that table was a little frightening. The doc met with me for a few, to tell me that I will look beautiful after everything is done. I hope he is right. I'm just scared, you know? I got all my supplies and meds ready to go, and I will clean the house and play a round of golf to make tomorrow pass faster. It will be my last golf game for a while. I went to the Gym today, and boy am I going to miss it!!! Thats going to be the hardest part for me. I love to exercise, but I know in the end this will all be worth it. Keep your heads up ladies. Good luck to you all, and may you heal swift and safe.

Hello ladies. Well tomorrow is the big day, and I am so nervous. My surgery was originally at noon, but I was bumped up to eight. I have everything ready to go. I finished all my last minuet errands, and cleaned the house. I hope I will be ok. I'm just scared. I'm sure that's normal. I will post post op pics and update when i can. Wish me luck. Happy healing to everyone!

Thanks for the well wishes. I am an hour from surgery and my stomach is in knots. I took a laxative yesterday afternoon and that is not fun!!! I guess it's good bc I got everything out, but the cramps were awful. I'm very excited for the change this morning, but the anticipation is killing me. Well I go to go! The bathroom calls....again. Lol. Thanks everyone! Happy healing.

Starting the road to recovery been tough! Wow...

Starting the road to recovery been tough! Wow girls...I'm in some pain. Cg is tight and I have to get up an pee every hour. Ivebeen eating crackers, jello and homade chicken soup from mom. My man has been so great. If it wasn't for him and his help, I would be in some agony. I'm really
sore and my thighs are bruised and swollen. I had the lipo as well. I think the most pain is the MR spot. I nerver realized how much I used those muscles till today. The pain meds are happening and ladies..take you Naseau meds!!! I've been nauseous all day. Luckily only one vomit and was presurgical bc of the antibiotics on an empty stomach. Incision site burns a bit, and I have asked myself the famous question..." what the hell did I do to myself"??!! I'm sleeping/resting in my bed with my feet and head up, and it's helping. I hope tomorrow is a little better. The staff at the docs office was amazing btw. Happy healing ladies!,

It has been a month, and I couldnt be happier....

It has been a month, and I couldnt be happier. Everything came out beautiful, and I will post pics today. I will admit the recovery has been tough and not for the faint of heart. It was painful, but i looked amazing from the first day. Of course I am still wearing this binder and I swell at night, but its not as bad as I thought it would be. Im so tiny now, and clothes fit me so well. I have started walking 3 miles everyday. and it helps me from not losing my mind. All in all, I am very pleased with how I look. My doctor is an artist, and I will recommend him to all my friends.

Thanks everyone for the wonderful comments. All...
