Hello everyone. I am a 40 year old mother of 3 girls ages 19, 15 and 18 months. I have wanted a TT for about 12 years. I had kind of given up on it ever happening and was really ok with my body until I had the HUGE surprise of a pregnancy at 38. Well she's awesome and I'm actually glad I never went through with att before because it would have been ruined! I gain soo much weight whenever I'm pregnant. I'm talking like 85 lbs. Having turned 40 last year and feeling too old to be young and too young to be old I decided it was time. I am 5'7 and 155 lbs. I tend to carry my weight around my middle and think a TT would be great for me. I am still on the fence about a breast lift with implant and have just decided to put myself out here because everyone seems so awesome! I have been "trolling" on this website for months :) and would love to hear what others have thought about scars, recovery etc. I know I would rather have a hip to hip scar on my belly over the stretch marks and skin, but I'm no so sure about my breasts. Did anyone just get a TT and then regret not doing their breasts? Well I feel like I have totally rambled on and hopefully everything I said makes sense. I'm super excited to hear from any of you who have gone through the journey and any tips you have on picking a doctor :)
Anyone Use an Indiana Doctor They Love?? Tell Me Your Story :) - Indianapolis, IN
I am not going to be able to have surgery until...
I am not going to be able to have surgery until November and maybe not until January. Is it too soon to do a consult?? Everyone has said to take a ton of pics so I have also added more before photos :)
Am I crazy?
As I was searching for a Dr. In my state that I liked I kept coming across the work of a doctor in Denver. Well I am from Denver but live in Indiana now. My parents and 3 sisters live in the Denver area so I have decided to go to Denver for my mommy makeover. I feel great about the doctor but am nervous about all the drawbacks that come with using a doctor out of state. My plan is to stay in Denver for 3-4 weeks after surgery, probably more like 4 weeks. My question is for those of you who have gone through your surgery. Am I crazy to think I will be able to fly home after 4 weeks? It's about a 2.5 hr flight. Also, how many of you have felt like you needed to continue to be seen by your doctor beyond the 1 month mark. I can always fly back for like a 2 month post op appointment but what if something goes wrong?? Anyone who has done their surgery out of town....any thoughts or advise would be great. You all have been so awesome. I love this site!
Just curious is anyone had second thoughts about spending so much money on their surgery???? I feel like it is so much money to spend on myself when honestly there are other things it could go towards. I feel selfish and a little foolish for wanting to do this. I could always wait a couple years, but I feel like I'm not getting any younger and at 40 (as silly as it may sound), I feel like my window of opportunity is closing lol. When I told my best friend she couldn't understand why I would want to do something like this at my age. Jeez , I don't really feel old. Or I didn't anyway lol. Anyway just looking for advise or thoughts from anyone who struggled with spending such a huge amount of money on something a TINY part of me thinks is frivolous.
