Finally Gettin Er Done! - Folsom, CA

Hi, I am a 26yr old stay at home mother of 2...

Hi, I am a 26yr old stay at home mother of 2 beautiful girls, 4 & 2, done having children and ready to have this gone!! haven't had my surgery yet but I can't wait!! I will keep this updated with my progress.

I have always been tight and athletic and was really shocked how my body didn't bounce back like everyone said it would after I had my babies, everyone is different I guess! I am 5'7" and 133lbs!!


Hi, I am 26 years old, mother of 2 gorgeous little...

Hi, I am 26 years old, mother of 2 gorgeous little girls and am DONE having children. I am 5'7" and weigh 133. I became unexpectedly pregnant when I was only 20 and I gained a whopping 80lbs!!! I have always been thin and athletic. I had another baby 2years later and am married with a happy little family, except the one thing I feel robbed of, my youth. I have a sagging skin on my tummy and I had little boobs before pregnancy, like 32A little lol and they blew up to DD, and then deflated, so I am left with that. I just want to feel young again, there is this nagging feeling in me that keeps saying "your only 26 and can't wear a bikini?" Not only that but I can't stand for my husband to touch me while we're intimate, I just feel gross.

So, here I am with my surgery date scheduled and I am soooo happy and scared and all those feelings!!! Dr. told me all I needed were implants, no lift (which I was surprised) and a mini tummy tuck!! The only problem is financing, we may not be able to get the boob job for another year, depending what we qualified for at the bank, either way I am stoked!!! We can do the mini for sure and that's what bothers me most anyways, hopefully we can work the boobs out but whatever happens happens!!!!

Soooo, I a going to share a little private info...

Soooo, I a going to share a little private info and wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem and what they did.....hhmmhmmm, here it goes...so I quit smoking so I could get this surgery done, which I had been trying to do anyways so it all worked out perfect BUT, here's the embarrassing part, I have become super constipated, bloated and gassy, idk what to do about it?!! I was never a heavy smoker, maybe 2-5 cigs a day, but my morning coffee and cig "got me going"...anyways any advice would be great lol!!!
Also, I am having to deal with criticism from my MIL who is 100% against and disgusted with plastic surgery, ugh, talk about uncomfortable, I wish she could understand how I felt but she thinks you should embrace and love what your children have "given" you aka mommy body!! She is very much involved with my kids and a AWESOME grandmother and I feel blessed to have her in our families lives and I respect her BUT, her lack of respect for my point of view has really irked me and to be blunt, pissed me off!!! Still excited none the less, even though I have a mixed crowd of supporters and none *sigh*....

So I am starting to get really nervous, Surgery...

So I am starting to get really nervous, Surgery day is right around the corner and I still haven't found out if I can get the breast augmentation yet, I am on pins and needles waiting to find out!!! The bank better hurry up because full payment is due on my pre-opp which is on Monday, they said it would be here on or before the 29th which is Friday, cutting it close, but if we didn't do it now we wouldn't be able to do it until next year because of how my husbands vacation time works, I just wish we would have planned this out a little better but this whole process has been a learning experience for both of us.....Also really nervous about putting this on a credit cart, I know it's advised against but we have been talking about getting a credit card for years, neither he or I have EVER had a credit card in our entire lives!! Ahhhh I will keep updating!!!


Another update, only getting the mini tuck this...

Another update, only getting the mini tuck this time, going to have to wait another year for the boobs but I am still super excited yay!!

I can't believe on this day next week I will...

I can't believe on this day next week I will be in surgery OMG!!!! Sooo, I am pretty sure I will have other people "with me" on this but I have been having some crazy nightmares!!! I have been having trouble sleeping and still have problems "in the bathroom".....I know it's gross but I hope I don't have to resort to an enema! I quit drinking coffee at the same time as cigarettes maybe that wasn't such a good idea, might have to get me some ducolax and get back on the coffee!!! The only reason I quit coffee was #1, my teeth get stained really easily and it turns them yellow....anyways the nerves are starting to kick in, I have been trying not to think about it!!


Whew, 5 days and counting.....starting to become...

whew, 5 days and counting.....starting to become really concerned about infection, for some reason that's my biggest worry, all these darn "super bugs" these days!! My PS is also 2 hours away from where I live so that worries me also, although he is good about it, my friend and a boob job and a blood vessel ruptured after a couple weeks and she had to make the 2hr drive in the middle of the night, and he personally came to the hospital at like 3am to see her!!
I am also worried about scar placement, I have seen some pictures and the scar is higher than normal and I want mine LOW, also worried about my skin being wrinkly still afterwards, I have seen pictures of that too!! On a positive note pretty much anything will be better that what I have now so if it doesn't turn out "perfect" that's okay, he just better put that damn scar low LOL!!!

Soooo Tomorrow is the Day and I am so scared and a...

Soooo Tomorrow is the Day and I am so scared and a bundle of emotions but at the same time, it doesn't feel real........ahhhhh be back later today..............

So here I am probably for the last time...

So here I am probably for the last time "uncut", spent the day cleaning and running last minute errands, got a comfy robe and bra to wear......I will take pictures asap, so many of the "just after surgery" pics look so painful, but then later comes and the results are awesome, can't I just skip to the awesome part? ;)haha NO, no pain no gain!! I can't believe the time has arrived already, it just always seemed like something that was talked about, researched yadda yadda, but now comes time for it to be real ahhhhhhhhh!!!

So here I am!! Post op Day 2....haven't posted...

So here I am!! Post op Day 2....haven't posted any pictures yet because I can't open my binder and won't get my bandages changed until Monday but wow, pain is crazy, tolerable but just strange feelings!!! My drainage hasn't been too crazy so I am hoping I can get it out by Monday!!! That would be awesome......It still didn't feel real for me until they had me on the operating table, then I woke up and was like holy shit it's done, it really happened!! Now I just can't wait to see it!!!


Funny story, when my husband was in the waiting room he was there with another woman's husband and they were both getting instructions and the guy just turned white, slammed his face on the counter and hit the floor with the back of his head, knocking himself out and cutting the back of his head and was laying in a pool of blood!!!! So of course my husband to the rescue, the receptionists were all freaked out, my surgeon had to stop in the middle of stitching me up to help the guy, he ended up leaving in an ambulance and his poor wife was in recovery and had to make all these phone calls for someone to pick her up!! CRAZY!! They said that had NEVER happened before!!

Great Dr. and staff, I am satisfied with my decision......he went beyond my expectations and would highly recommend him to anyone I know =)
