Ok here goes.....I'm 32 a mother of 3 girls. I've pretty much achieved most of my goals expect for the tummy tuck!!!! I knew after my first child I wanted one done!!! ..... stretch mark hell from then on but was able to regain back to my normal size . Baby #2 and 3 was not kind to my body!! I decided that if my last wasn't gonna be a boy then I was done having more children. I'm so nervous I'm sch one week from today to have my surgery. I know that somewhere under the rolls and bulging fat that there's a
beautiful body just waiting to make a come back!!! Lol ....wish
me luck!!

Ok going in today for my blood work I'm a out of town patient so I had to get my labs done in Jacksonville....I go for my pre OP on the 23 I hope all goes well.......I'm so nervous...

I was told by my doctor that I needed an extended tt...with lipo and upper flanks has anyone had the extended tt done , I can't tell the difference besides the incision being longer????.....

Well it's travel day!!!! I'm five hours away from the doctors office so I will be vacationing in fort Lauderdale for awhile. My pre OP is first thing tomorrow morning after that me and my family plan on having a blast before I go down on Monday. My mother who is full of life my three girls and boyfriend will be here for support I so appreciate them being here it's spring break for the kids so instead of keeping them out of school I felt like this would be a great time. It's gonna be slow season soon I'm a hair stylist and I didn't want to spend the summer recovering as I need to be there for my clients and business....I hope this recovering doesn't take to long....I've never taken this much time off but glad I have an understanding staff. Well it's been a busy week and I haven't even packed the first pair of socks lol..I gots to do better !!! I'll talk about my pre OP tomorrow...prey for me as I journey my way to a new me!!!!
Good luck with your surgery!!!

Good luck and have a great time in Ft. Lauderdale. Sounds like a beautiful place to recover. It's still in thd 30's in CT, and we're supposed to be in the 50's by now. I will say a prayer for you and your new flat tummy!!!

We had a safe travel the weather is perfect the hotel has been great and comfortable my pre op went very well yesterday my nurse explained all the dos and donts and i had to point out the fact that my bra rolls and lower flanks were included because for some reason it wasnt on the print out.......um say what now"!!!!! So i told her to make sure she review the dr notes because there was no way i was gonna do the surgery without it...otherwise there needs to be an anjustment in price....then all of a sudden the dr.notes appeared ......and then i exhaled!!!!! my backside is so rollie and having the lipo combined with the tt would only complete my look so it was extremely important that we were all on the same page. All and all yesterday was great i spent time with my family we had a blast at the beach its spring break here so it was kind of wild ,i only wish that i was able to sport my two piece like the other chics.....watch out spring break 2014!!!!!!
How are you feeling? Are you two days post surgery? I didn't really turn a big corner until at least 3 days after. (Im 3 days ahead of you.) Excited to start seeing After pics when you feel up to it. I haven't felt like it yet!

Me neither I swear this is almost worst than having natural child birth....this morning is the beginning of PO day 3.....I saw my tummy once when I returned the next day.....I was in tears I just couldn't believe it was me...only a few stretch marks , tiny waist, flat tummy. I'm just ready to recover I feel like I've inconvenience my family...how r u feeling?? What's ur thoughts?? @ Tacoma hopefulhopeful

It gets better!!! The first couple days were the worst! Rest, do little walks, rest some more. The combo of moving lightly and stretching with resting is helping! I promise it gets better. You are inconveniencing your family.... But it's okay!!!! It's good for them to be able to help you. But if you don't heal right, you'll be mad at yourself. I went for too long a walk outside today and now I'm swelling. It's not worth it to overdue it. Hang in there girl!! You're about to cross over the really bad threshold. You can do it!

Not sure what happen to my post right before I went under but I wasn't pleased with how long it took them they called me in early round 11 when I was set to be there at 1 but surgery didn't start until after 5 on.....ugh....it was freezing in there they gave me my meds and I was out...it felt like I was only sleep for 20 min I had no idea I had have surgery not to mention the pain ...u was pissed and still cold....they had a on site pharmacists there and my scripts were not filled I was the last patient so I guess they were ready to go all I remember was waking up in the hotel room hollering and screaming for meds....omg how dare they dismiss me without them my boyfriend and Mom had no clue that there was a 24 hours Walgreen down the street.....poor guy ....he looked on line and went and got them filled it was 4 am or so.....after the meds kick in I've been ok ....to my surprise the lipo hurts the worst...even with all the meds it still hurts but damn I look good!!!!!! Dr. Omulepu did his thing ...when I went in the next day for my follow up I was in tears when I saw my tummy for the first time I couldn't believe it was me .....it was so surreal!!!..... I'm just at the point to where I felt ok to blog....the first 4 to 5 days is no joke....ladies if u can please don't forget to try to walk at least 2 to 3 times a day down the hallway or back and forth round the house...the meds will cripple u ...u need that circulation to prevent blood clotting no matter how bad it hurts u can do it....also I don't know what I would've done without the support of my Mom kids and boyfriend they are all awesome....I've been moody and they have been so good to me the valume has really helped with that.....well tomorrow I go for my third visit and hopefully the Doc will remove my drains and release me to travel back to Jacksonville.....crossing my fingers this damn hotel has me a 1000 in the hole ...time to get the hell out of broward county!!!! I will post pics soon everyone please stay encouraged!!!!!
Thanks ladies much better today....just taking a shower and having a bm does wonders...thanks for all the advice and support!!! That heating pads sounds great....also it was nice watching the girls color eggs today I wish I could help more

Ok today I was released from the doctor to go back home.....DUVAL!!!!! I must admit I love it down south but nothing is like being in the comfort of your own home.....taking those drains out kind of hurts but thank goodness my tummy is still numb...getting better day by day....but mentally im a mess not sure why I go into depression mood.....now that im back home I still have to depend on others for help my mom has to go back to work I still can't walk too great ,back hurts all the time and the indigestion is a nightmare....has any one had shortness of breath I find it better when I just don't talk....and I gotta figure out another pain method cuz I find myself relying on them to much....im just trying to stay focus so I can get back to beautifying my clients.....this trip has left me 4.20 in the bank lol....but I know God will make a way he always does.....well back to reality!!!! Here's a pic I've posted it's the best I can do for now until I get my strength back.....and to all the ladies whose healing have a safe recovery!!!!
I love your post op pic how was your overall experience with strax i went too them for a consult almost two years ago for a brazilian butt lift but i never went with them after hearing about the amount of deaths they had there..but i like your stomach and that price. did u have to pay in full before u got the procedure?
Reply
Trust me the only reason I stuck with them was becuz I felt my doctor was very confident in his work.....the OR department was totally different than the staffing...I plan on writing them a letter about customer service.....my dr.was the bomb!!! He even call me to check in me himself....I just think that they are over booked and a busy place and just need to go back to the basics other than that my scary is healing well and he met all my expectations!!! Just only deal Dr omulepu and his staff. Oh and the price I talked them down it was 5800 but becuz I put 1000 cash down I got the price I told them I could afford btw donot finance.... cash money talks!!!! Over all it wasn't as bad as people said....there just really busy
Reply
Oh and make sure u only deal with the owner Jeff....make sure u get copies of everything...I gave them the business, I wasn't fixing to pay in full I paid upon arrival!!!

I'm just glad I saved myself .... levels are good enough to leave so I'm just gonna take it easy....I view life so different now....can't take it for granted......do your research asks questions if it don't feel right it probably isn't.....I still look good but the price of life wasn't worth it......maybe a year from now I will feel different but right now I just wanna enjoy life not risk it!!!.....

Hi sweetheart. Glad you are better now and nothing could prepare us for the unknown but glad you got to the doctors in time. and don't regret your decision I'm sure you didn't make it hastily and you did your research. So stay focus in living a good old life in that sexy body. Just think you will appreciate it more.
