mm with full tt, lipo of flanks, bl with implants, and lipo of chin! - Lexington, KY

i am 37 yrs old, mother of 2, ages 19 and 16 years! ht 5'2", wt 165lbs, and its mostly all belly. i have struggled with the belly buldge, and saggy breast for a long time. i could rock a bikini even after my last child, but depo shot for birth control did the job on my body. 50 lbs in 6 months, was too overwhelming for me. but even 16 yrs later still there. diet, exercise and whatever else you can do to lose weight, ive done it, but it just keeps coming back. no matter how much weight i lost, my belly never went nowhere.

but things are about to change!! im so excited, i'm having full tt, with lipo of flanks, breast lift with silicone implants and lipo of the chin!! my surgery is scheduled for december 1st 2011. only 3 wks away, ive dreamed about this for a very long time.!!

I am going to have a mommy makeover with Dr. Wells on December 9th! I would love to have lipo done on my chin after I get the MM paid off!

Update and let us know how things are going!

Good luck and take care! :-)

Today is POD 9!! Yesterday I saw my doc, he removed sutures and my JP drain. My results ate getting better everyday! Dr Wells had really made my dreams come true, he's great!! My abdomen is starting to get more feeling back into now, it's not as numb over the muscle repair and it's burning like fire. I'm not sure if thats what's suppose to happen and who long does it stay, any recommendations on what to do??? Boobs still perky and settled nicely. Chin and neck have nice shape! I just love my results!!

It's a drain that has a bulb on the end. They mash it in to create suction. It had long tiny tube come from the surgical area to the bulb. The name of it Jackson Pratt Drain!

I'm almost 2 weeks out now from my MM!!! I'm loving my results! Boobs are settling, and swelling going away! Abdomen is flat, but that muscle hurts!! I think I'm over pain from lipo now, it's just getting stretched out enough to stand up straight. Biggest problem I have is not being able to bend over, or stand up straight, and anything I do as far as waking throughout the house or any wears me out!! I get tired so fast and easy. I've also spent two weeks in recliner, I can't wait to get back in my bed!! My bed is very low to the floor. I have to say also I have best husband on earth!! He has lifted me up, bathed me, changed my clothes and bandages, made sure everything is in its place and nurtured me as my own mother would have!! I love him very much and am so thankful and blessed!!

Ok I'm almost 3 months out, and I'm loving my results!! I still have some swelling throughout the day, so I still wear my spanx!! I can honestly say its been the best money I've ever spent in my life and I would do it again tomarrow!! Besides the swelling in the abdomen, my thighs still swells some too, I don't know if this is all normal or not and if anyone else does this after being out this long?? I have been told by several it could take up to 6 months to go away so I'm not panicking yet!! Lol. I think that if someone wants this do, you need to do it and feel so much better about yourself!! I'll try to post some 2 & 3 months out pics later!!

Dr Wells is the best ever!! Look at what a job he performed on me!! My belly was huge and now its flat, boobs were saggy and now they are perky and round.. I love my results and I couldn't have found anyone better to get this job done. Office staff is the best, they treat you like family. Mandy and Kristie are the best ever, and there is no wait times!!!
