I have had 3 c-sections with the significant weight gain and loss after each baby has caused a lot of loose skin and droopy breast. I am ready now that I am done with kids to do something for me.
Question was asked about what I was having done. ...

I am getting excited. My pre-op appointment is Tuesday March 13th where I get to decide on size of breast - should be a fun appointment. I will be taking before pics as well so I will post those when I get them done. My Surgery is less than a month away. For those that have had this done before what would your top recommendations of what to get to be prepared when I come back home? How did you hide the drains- what kind of clothes did you all wear? I don't want my kids to see those?
So I went for my pre-op visit today. Pretty...

I go in on Tuesday 4/3 at 7:30 they will get me prepped and I should start surgery at 8:30. The surgery is supposed to take 6 hours for everything so hope to be home 4 or so. I have my prescriptions filled just need to get my Easter basket stuff bought since I won't be doing any of that before Sunday. Mom and Hubby are going to be helping me play Easter.
Will post as I can after surgery with pics.
So tomorrow is the big day. I am not too nervous...

Breast are tight and one seems more swollen than the other but I think overall they are going to look good - no longer hanging to my belly :)
I do have to say the drains are a pain - will feel much better when those are out - will try and take more pics if I can tonight and post so you can see the progress.
So Post Op day 5 is done. Feeling really good...

Posting pics day 5 - one breast looks lower than the other but I guess that will work itself out as well. They also look big to me but it has been a long time since I had any volume so I am sure I will get used to that too. Belly looks good I think- seems to be healing nicely and is flat. My bruising isn't too bad either - hope it heals up quickly.
Post-op Day 8: Yesterday I think I over did it...

Today was a great day - feel really good -didn't even have to take Tylenol today so pain was really good today - more uncomfortable due to this last drain but that will come out Tuesday so getting close. My breast still look uneven but I still think they are pretty swollen so still hope that works itself out but my stomach has minimal swelling so that has been really nice - and I think is going to look great when the stitches are gone and I am all healed up.
Does anyone know how long until the stitches dissolve and this tape can come off?
Hope all that are going through this journey are having a great one - day 7 pics below for those that like to see pictures (I know I did)
So I am now 2 weeks post op - and things are going...

Dr. B said all looked really good - he said that my results would get even better because I still had some swelling that needed to go down - I am happy now can't imagine it being better - so excited to see the final results. The tape came off and even without any scar therapy the scaring isn't as bad as I thought it would be.
My left breast is still more swollen than my right so they look a little uneven but the doc said that would correct itself too. He did tell me that my right one will be slightly lower than my left because due to the amount of sag in my right breast that he wasn't able to completely 100% match them up without the right one looking bad - so glad he made that decision - don't want it to look bad - being a little off is fine - he said it won't be that noticeable.
I go back in 2 weeks and the doc will give me a smaller compression garment and I will learn how to do the scar therapy - so I am making great progress. Post op 2 week pics below.
So 3 weeks post op - doing pretty good so far. ...

I will start scar therapy after the next week. My scar right now isn't too bad considering it has only be 3 weeks so hopefully doing the scare therapy it will get even better. I get a smaller garment too on Tuesday - maybe that will help with the swelling. How long did you all have to wear your garment. I have a Florida trip planed right at 6 weeks post op and hoping I don't have to wear it all the time - it wouldn't look to cute on the beach :).
I have posted my 3 weeks post op for those that like to see visual results and know how things are progressing.
For those of you just beginning your journey - mine hasn't been too bad so far and wish each of you a great journey to being that hot mamma you want to be.

Dr. Basu has been amazing so far. Great care and from what I can see after day 2 post op - it is going to look really great. The nurses in his office have been amazing and have been great about following up to check on me.
