Cant Wait for a New Me - Houston, TX

A 8 pounder and a 10 pounder and two c sections....

A 8 pounder and a 10 pounder and two c sections. what more do I have to say. I've been thinking about this for almost 6 years and I have decided to get it done. Thank God that I'm a vet because if not I would have been spending 5 thoundsand dollars in Mississippi. Its rare that the VA will do this but mine is a medical necessity. I was cut straight up and down twice and no matter how much exercise I do the stomach want go away. Even when I was 133 lbs it wouldn't go away. I'm 5'7 and about 180. I would like to be around 150 before the surgery but that want happen because I will be getting the final OK this Monday. So as soon as they say you can come in and do the surgery I'm there. So serving the country is great but it's even better when the country can serve you. Lol. So I will be posting before and after pix and keeping everyone updated. So until then good luck everyone and lets continue to get beautiful..smooches ladies and gents.

Congratulations! Keep us posted with pics. Especially of your scar. I am an African American woman as well and I am worried about how I will heal. I have my second consultation on Monday with my husband present since he was not at the first one.

It gets better and better each day. I been going to the bathroom by myself for the last two days but the doc wants me to continue to walk bent over. My drains want come out until next wed. I really can't wait for them to come out. Everything is really healing well and I feel great. Can't wait until the swelling goes down.

Can't wait to see the results three months from now. I really love the way I look. I am so happy that I found realself. I felt alone for some strange reason because I really need an outlet to talk about how I was feeling and what I wanted to be done. This is a great site with a lot of answers and real experiences. I have recommended it to several of my friends. Thanks so much RealSelf.

You are looking AWESOME....... Hoping for great results like you... DO you mind if I ask what your height and weight are..... It sounds weird but it helps me dream of my outcome!!! I am doing a full mommy makeover..... Again, congrats on the NEW YOU!!!!

It's cool, I'm 5'7 and 195lbs. All of my weight was in my stomach, I didn't have any fat anywhere else but my stomach. The doc said I did not need and lipo so the only thing they did was cut out the fat and that was it. I am still bending over in this pic and a little swollen but I love it and I know that the swellen will go away but overall I think it depends on where most of your fat is. I even ask the doc if I needed to lose more weight and he said no because where my fat was. So I hope this helped.
i'm so happy for you

It's been 5 days since my surgery and still no bowl movement. I have been taken stool softern and nothing. The gas is terrible. Nothing comes outs but it rolls through my stomach like crazy. I can't wait to get my drains out. they are really starting to bother me. I really want to put on some regular clothes just to see how I look. But these drains are stopping everything.

Wow! Looking beyond amazing, fab fab fab! Hoping you are having better luck with your bowl movement, i've had three surgeries done (C-section, exploratory surgery and ovarian removal surgery) never had issue with the bowl movement because i start drinking metamucil a week or so before the surgery every day and every day after that, it doesn't make you go per se', but it makes you "regular". Also, take gasx, it sure helps with the gas.

Tomorrow makes 3 weeks post ops and I really do feel great. If I had to do it over again I would do it in a heartbeat. Well I guess I need to start walking slowly until I build my strength up. August will be my next and final surgery. I want to have the brazillian butt lift. I feel as though this would be my icing on the cake. I want to move to MIA once I finish my master's degree and I want to be able to play with the best of them. I want to feel great in my new body. I really feel great and just want to show it off. I really love my new tummy but it's still a little swollen in the middle but I know it will go down in time, but I really do love everything. August her I come. Can't wait to get my new butt....LOL.

I am so glad to know I am not alone. The VA is doing my TT (scar revision/ panniculectomy) on April 16th. You hear so many stories about the VA hospitals and surgery. I am happy that you are pleased with your results. My surgeon was adamant that the VA does not perform cosmetic procedures. I asked the forst doctor about correcting by breast and he flat out said no. The second doc is considering it after the TT. Will the VA be doing your BBL in August? If so I might just have to come to Houston.

Just curious, Why did you rate your procedure as "Not Worth It"? .

Trust me its not easy...but your right everything should be free for vets. Thank you so much..

It's been a minute but I needed to update my status since my surgery. It's been about 9 or 10 weeks and I'm really enjoying the new me. I been on the BBL section because I'm getting my butt done in late Aug or Sept. I hate that I have to wait 6 months but it because of my TT, better safte than sorry. My stomach is really getting flatter each day. I really look great in all mt clothes but i just feel like something is missing so thats why im getting the brizilian butt kift to complete my transfermation. Actually i look better than my before pictures but for some reason i weigh more. Thats strange but i have change my eating ways and start drinking green dieters tea and i lost about 8lbs in one week but I've also been running too but I started after I lost the 8lbs. So I'm posting new pictures today and I will be posting more in a few weeks just to see how I'm coming along. Enjoy realselfers and good luck in you surgery future..stay fab.
