Hello to all the gorgeous ladies out there! thank you so much for sharing your stories and sharing your before and after pictures. It helps a lot. I am a wife and a mother of 3 beautiful kids. Boy 19 yrs old, girl 16 yrs old and a toddler 3 yrs old. I am 41 years old. 5'2 and stuck with 136 lbs and the most disgusting body full of stretch marks all over and the biggest flap belly you've ever seen :-( I hate my body!! I've always wanted to do this but I feel guilty spending this much money on myself but now I've decided to do it because if I don't do this now and wait 10 more years the right time will never come. So ladies, stay tuned :-) my turn to be beautiful "I wish and hope that he'll do a good job" on February 15, 2012. Yup! one day after we celebrate our V-day. Wish me luck. Here are some before pictures. I love my husband for loving ME the way I am right now :-) eewww
Well tomorrow at 10am will be my pre op...

Well I DID it!! unbelievable. I am such a big chicken when it comes to pain and sticking needles on me. But if I have to vote.. I would vote SO WORTH IT!!! I’ll do it again within a heartbeat.
Let’s see.. Day 1 and 2 I don’t really remember much because I was asleep most of the time and my dearest husband put an alarm to feed me my food and pain medications!! blessed his wonderful heart!!. And he was by my side to and back from the bathroom. The pain wasn’t bad because of the pain killer I guess the most uncomfortable thing was the drainers!!! Ladies, If you don’t have the recliner chair and sleep on your bed make sure you have at least 2 wedged pillows and 2 regular pillows for your legs. My hubby got them for me from bed bath & beyond. They are a life saver!!! Especially when you have to get up and down.
Day 3 and 4 post op - were a little bit harder since my husband has to go back to work. But my awesome sister took over. If you want to take a shower I suggested that someone will help you!! I guess the pain is a little bit more content on the 3rd and 4th day. I tried walking around the house a little more everyday but my belly swollen a lot more too ? the more I move the more swollen I got.
Day 5 post op – I am still constipated!! My hubby bought me prune juice and stool softener. I have been taking that every day for the past 2 days now. I felt the binder pushing up all the way to my boobs ? it was painful and when I pulled it down it covered the drainers!! YIKES!!! It sucks to have such short body!! Very uncomfortable.
Fast forward to day 10 ? my life for the past 10 days have been like a roller coaster ride but I am getting better every day! So far I can see my shape. Aahhhh I haven’t seen this for the past 15-19 years!!! It looks NICE!!!
I had to come back to work on my 10th day. beside walking like a hunchback I am OK. Very tired!! And I STILL HAVE THE DRAINERS with me ? had to hide them in my jeans pockets it wasn’t fun at all.
Day 11 – Super Happy because those darn annoying drainers are OUT!!! Yes!! the results was amazing!!! My boobs looks a little smaller than before but I like them this size. My belly has no more fat hanging!! OMG!!! very happy!!!
I am posting some of after pictures. It looks more swollen in pictures than real life ? I look a lot better in person ? just sayin!! Haha By the way today March 2, 2012 it has been 2 weeks and 3 days. Everything is wonderful!! Can’t complain I feel very bless for my new body and the pain? What pain? No more pain!! I am still walking not 100% straight yet but I know I AM BETTER EVERYDAY!! until then, Take care ladies and thank you for reading.
I had the most wonderful, caring and amazing doctor!!
