The Easiest and Best Decision that I Have Made for Myself - Houston, TX

I have 2 wonderful boys, 8 and 4. Now, I also have a huge gut that more than one Dermatologists have told me will not go away no matter what I do. Plastic surgery is my only option. I am schedule for a tummy tuck and lipo in June. I am so scared of the pain after. And I'm scared that it won't work. It's hard for me to imagine that I can actually have a flat stomach and smaller thighs again. Any advice would be truly appreciated. :-)

My TT and Lipo is scheduled for June 29th. I cannot get this off of my mind. It is all that I think about. Still super nervous and super excited at the same time. My husband has been amazing. At first, he was totally against me doing this but ultimately he wants me to be happy so he has been really supportive. I am a bit self-conscious and embarrassed to tell anyone this decision just yet so my husband and this blog are my only outlets.

I did the same thing. I told VERY VERY few people. and the ones I DID tell were supportive. ONE I knew she had some things done by the doc...so I had questions for her. ONE was a nurse friend who had worked with the doc. I also told my sister... BUT ONLY about the TT and lift.. not the implants...and you know NO ONE can even tell I have the implants.. I know its wierd but I wore a good padded bra and "added " to it for 6 months so this is what everyone was use to seeing.. the tummy... well it was just skin so no one even knew my tummy needed anything done.

It is normal to "obsess" over it..and for it to be 24/7 on your mind...

the important thing is that you and your husband support each other.

If you dont want to tell others , dont... you dont need their permission, its not their money.. and you not doing it for them and I assume not to "show off" so its ok...(I mean if thats at all incorrect on my part I appologize)

Feeling comfortable around you husband (in the room) is SO important.. I no longer WANT to hide myself from him.. I think you understand what I mean...

So WE ARE here to support you, and to listen, and to just be you venting station if need be.

For me this was my outlet too.

Our husbands care and worry because they love us so its hard for them to hear about it all the time... Message me if you need to. 

Sometime BECAUSE we are so excited that is why we are thinking about it all the time...it's ok I believe we all did

Well, I've finally gotten enough nerve to add before pics. Just under 5 weeks to go!
That is another great option! I think I'll go with that one!

nicpoo08 hernia repair is one option. the time I did need to deal with the question I simply said it was just female issues.. "I said it's no big deal just female issues and I'm fine, just going to be down for a few days" which was 100% true and it was an "issue" people dont need to much info on.. and is understandable as to why you would not go into details.. just wanted to share that with you in case you needed an option

Im scheduled June 25th for breast implant exchange, lift, and lipo to abdomen, hips, and inner and outer thighs.... It is scarey but so many people do it.... I told my friends and if people ask i will gladly tell them i had work done.. No need to cover it up in my opinion.

Hello Ladies! I haven't been on in quite a while.....

Hello Ladies! I haven't been on in quite a while...well before surgery I believe. But, on June 29th, my life changed forever! I had a TT and Lipo in my arms, back, hips, and thighs. I was SUPER scared because I am a total wimp when it comes to pain but it was not that bad at all. The Lipo was the worst part...really painful. But was sleeping in my bed after 3 nights (I hated sleeping in the recliner) and I was pretty much doing everything for myself after 6 days. I just needed my husband's help to get in my girdle and my under armour. I really feel like I dodged a bullet. I was expecting excruciating pain and to not be able to do anything myself and it was the complete opposite.

My PS (Dr. Franklin Rose --- AMAZING!!!!) only gave me 2 prescriptions - Ambien and Vicodin. I was concerned because I though I'd need more drugs. But, I have yet to take an Ambien and I only took 3 Vicodin during the first 2 days after surgery. I took regular Tylenol a few times but only because I was having migraines every day. I've had migraines since I was 11. That's it! It was all good!

Today, I can't believe how I look! Now, I need to consider a breast lift and reduction because my DD's look extra huge above my flat belly!

I started cardio 3 weeks ago and I started an work yesterday. I am down 11.5 lbs since surgery. I am so happy!
