32 Yr Old Mommy I Finally Did It- Houston, TX

This is not my first procedure, i have basically...

This is not my first procedure, i have basically tried to achieve the look in wanted .. in 2009 i went in for a consult for lipo only and some how eveded up convinced i needed breast implants also. Well lets just say that wad the biggest mistake ever , i went from a nice size C to DD over the next four years , i was miserable and realized all in needed was a lift
Still unhappy with my tummy area i had a mini tummy tuck in 2011, anf although that helped i still had loose skin above my belly buttob area. This past January i made the best decision ever and had my implants removed. So I was left with c cup breast that sagged and a pooch over my belly button.
After tons of research and consults I chose to get it all fixed one and for all . I knew right away that Dr basu was the one for me .. he was so thorough and took his time explaining everything to me, and his staff was amazing.
So yesterday I had a tummy tuck with liposuction of my waist and a Breat lift using my own breast tissue to make cleavage.
The numbing meds he uses are awesome, I'm not in too much pain in my tummy and breast because the numbing meds last about 72 hours so today was worse than yesterday and tomorrow I'm expecting will be the worst. My hips hurt the most from the Lipo and these drains are a pain in the butt. So far though I have no regrets I'm sure I will have my bad days too and I will use this place to vent. I'm not sure how to post pics but I took some before yesterday morning I will try to post

day 3

8 days out

Dr says it all looks good and that the swelling is at its worst. I stopped taking the Norco it was making me a little emotional and out of it not to mention itchy. I had one drain removed and my steri strip taken off too. My pain levels are manageable with Ultram I have more pain on my right side of my incision and burning sensation where the Lipo was done. My favorite part of the day is showering , i put a small chair in the shower and sit down and let the water hit my back and neck. I'm trying to stay positive and tell myself that it will look worse before it looks better. Feel free to ask me any questions, i will keep updating when I can
