MM with Breast Aug, Modified Tummy Tuck, Inner Thigh, Flank, Back, and Bra Line Lipo with Fat Graft to Butt - Houston, TX

32 year old mom of twin girls and big brother. Prior to surgery i was short waisted, apple shaped, long legs, slightly overweight and gain weight in my back, stomach, and boobs. I've thought about having a BA for years, however I didn't want to look like a big apple with the rest of my disproportionate body. When I lose weight it always comes from my boobs and butt, which looks even worse. I've always thought I have a very masculine shape so this was my solution.

So my surgery was on Monday 1/28 ad lasted about five hours. I don't remember anything other than standing naked in a 62 degree room being scrubbed down on all sides by a nurse. She shot something into my iv which made me feel delightfully woozy and I remember laying down and hearing music playing. I had previously who had dibs on the music selection and since my anesthesiologist told me it was usually Gospel or Country I asked that he get to choose. So I fell asleep to adult alternative which was nice. When I was being marked up with a sharpie prior to going back my doc confirmed the implant size again 375 silicone sub muscular high profile. I was wavering on the profile but went with his suggestion of high because i didnt need to add more width to my already wide upper half.

I'm now day 5 post op - pretty good recovery so far. I'm not too hunched, which I attribute to the abdominal shots my dr provides during surgery, but I have some nerve issues down my right thigh. If I move the wrong way it feels like fire down my leg and kills. From what I've been reading it can happen with very low incisions and indeed if I push ever so slightly almost at the edge of my incision, the pain occurs. Not sure what the solution is, but it better not be permanent because this sucks!

I'm just starting to feel lower back pain today...

I'm just starting to feel lower back pain today although I'm sure it's because I've been more active and independent today. Thank god for grandma taking the three munchkins for the day. I'm a single mom (although dad is still involved half time) so it makes it a bit more complicated than having a helpful husband at home. I napped a little this afternoon and then picked up the house a bit. The most helpful tool I've purchased by far has been the grabber claw tool I purchased on amazon for $12. It makes reaching anything super easy - no bending needed. I also bought a toilet seat riser which I probably wouldn't invest in as it was very uncomfortably hard, and a shower seat which was ├╝ber necessary. I also bought a juicer which i think was a good investment - lots of fresh veggies and fruits easily ingested and I'm not sure but it could have been a huge factor in why I have had no issues with constipation. More later...

Thanks ladies for the kind words. I really was just a fat skinny girl. This is definitely the worst shape I've been in but it's so hard to get motivated knowing that my boobs and butt would be the first to go before anything happens to my midsection.

I had a Mommy Makeover 1/31/13 w/Dr.P & I love him,Eva,Kari & the rest of his staff. I was wondering do u have knots & pain where he did lipo? Mine is really bad on the left side especially under my left arm,down my shoulder blade & on the side of my breast. I had my 1st massage yesterday when I went to my post op appt but it didnt seem to help much w/breaking the knots down...

Dr P came as a recommendation from several friends he had worked on. His bedside manner was top-notch and he never appeared to be rushed. I asked a lot of technical questions which he handled beautifully and he was very fair with pricing for add on procedures.
