I'm getting a full tt, and a breast lift with 350cc high profile silicone implants.
I'm 5'6" and between 130lbs. - 135lbs. I'm 35 yrs. old mother of 2. My daughter is 16 and my son is 2. Even though I only gained 35lbs. with my daughter, I got really bad stretch marks across my hips, abdomen and thighs. I breastfed my daughter for 10 months. I gained 40lbs with my son, and only got a few continuation stretch marks. I breastfed my son for one year. Since having my daughter, my weight has topped out at 175 lbs, or a size 14 and I am currently at my lowest weight since having my daughter at 131.5; size 2-4. I work out regularly 4 - 5 times per week doing weight/cardio and yoga classes at my local gym.
I started thinking about a mommy makeover after having my son because I knew he'd be my last child. I didn't have my husband's support until just a few months ago, so I started the process. A side note, he has always loved me just the way I am. I never felt like he didn't appreciate my body. Well, then he decided to leave me a few weeks ago. I really don't know why and I decided I really needed this more than ever. He recently has wanted to work on things, so we'll have to see how things go. I want to make very clear that I am doing the for ME and only me. I've always felt very insecure about my body. My breasts look like deflated balloons from going to a breast-engorged 38DD (and Possibly bigger) to a 34 C. My tummy has all this excess skin that I have to tuck in to my bottoms. I'm self-conscious especially when practicing yoga because the poses can cause my top to expose my belly, so I'll have to stop and adjust my clothing to cover up. I feel like I work too hard to have to cover up.
On to the fun stuff....I met with my PS & staff on May 31. She made me feel so good about myself and thought I was realistic about my goals. She said I didn't need lipo and that I'm all skin in my abdominal area. Yayy! She pulled and squeezed my tummy and breasts to help me envision what my new body would look like. I also tried on the bra with the silicone implants. They looked so good!It wasn't long before I scheduled my surgery for August 1. I'd do it sooner, but July is a very busy vacation month at work. I plan on taking just 2 weeks. I have a desk job, so it isn't physically demanding. The nurse thought I was pushing it, the Dr. thinks that I'll be ok, but to take it easy. My manager knows that I'm having this done, so it helps in case I have to take another day or two.
Like others, I really have to thank this site and all the ladies that put their stories for people like me to see. Time for me to pay it forward. :) Before pics wil be posted soon.
