11 months after my mommy makeover!! Lone Tree, CO

This is my story…I am very excited and...

This is my story…I am very excited and afraid too, it's not my first time in surgery, I had a breast augmentation (365 cc silicon gel) and a liposuction on my stomach, turn out very aggressive because the doctor remove way to much fat, tissue etc. So the results were no very satisfactory for me. I have indentations lumps and change of color (purple blotches) all over my belly, the texture no even (breast aug. and lipo were done in January 2007 in Caracas - Venezuela). I have two boys 6 year old and 14 months, I'm done having babies and also I'm not that young 39, I will be 40 years old in Dec. I have seen different doctors in Denver, CO area for an advice and there is no much they can do about my tummy, that just go a head and get a tummy tuck to remove and re-drape the skin of the stomach and see if that will help the actual texture. I told my husband if I could get this procedure (mommy makeover) as my 40th birthday gift!!! And he said yessss!!! He is getting very nervous and me too because is getting closer and closer the date ( first week of June). I have an appointment next Monday and we will be talking whether I want or need this tummy tuck but surely I need my breast lift and remove this bad implants and replace them for good ones under the muscle.

I’m a very healthy person so I’m expecting good results, I don’t smoke or drink alcohol, I hit the gym 5 to 6 times a week, I lift weights, work out that I love toooo much!! I weight 119 pounds – 5 feet tall , so very short and muscular but very feminine. I was born in Colombia and grow up in Venezuela, a very happy Latina woman! My belly looks like a Shar pei dog, really …. please don’t laugh !! I know you laughing hehehheh me too, is very wrinkly like an slinky toy, thing that I don’t like, that happens after having babies, bad lipo and losing weight. I just want to be happy and comfortable in a bikini or at list in a monokini swimsuit ;-) !! I will be posting pictures of myself so you can help me to decide what is the best for me. I will appreciate any positive and constructive feedback!!

Well, I had an appointment last Monday and decide the the surgery day!!! ahhhhhh June 7th, coming up very fast! I was debating between mini or full TT and doctor said full TT. Very nervous now things are getting serious ... My mom is flying from Venezuela and will stay for two months, I hope is enough time to recover and enjoy my mother with out pain from surgery. This is the update!! Happy Mothers Day beautiful girls out there!! ohh one more thing have you heard about horizontal incision? my Dr. said that she rather the insicion of my old belly botton in a horizontal way (no vertical) because will heal and look a lot better than vertical, let me explain a little more, she said that maybe she won't have enough skin to redrape and pull down and will let me with a scar from my original belly botton witch she will repair with a stitches in a horizontal way instead of vertical, let me know if you girls have this case or hear about it!!! LOVE and Peace to everyone!!

I'm adding some pictures of my progress losing weight, I started in January and last 3 months, and I loved the results, but how I said my belly is not my favorite, the skin is not very smooth, I don't feel confident in a bikini. I'm sure this procedure will help me.

Well 4 more days, my MM is next Thursday, waooo time go fast!!! Tomorrow cleaning day and cooking my own chicken soup from scratch, I dont really like the taste of caned ones. I will made a big pot and save it to be consume during my recovery. My 6 year old is out of school so I dont need to worry about who is going to drive him to school, my mom is here from Venezuela and husband and I had a night out this last weekend, we had a great time, getting so close and loving each other as ever!!! My mind was relax knowing that my mother was watching our kids (6 years and 15 months old boys). I hope to get more of this night out with husband soon, love it!!!

Ok girls, here I go!!! I need to be a 6:30 am and surgery start at 8 am, wish me luck, pray for me!!! Thank you for sharing such a great imformation, it help me a lot!! I think I'm ready!!

Well I'm back!!! full tummy tuck and breast lift and augmen. done!!! today is my 8th day post op. and feeling good. I had 365 cc gel implants before and I decide it to change them for 325cc gel Mentor (smooth round high profile gel) love the size. I still have my 2 drains collecting 10 cc every 12 hours, next Monday I have my second appointment hopefully they get removed, they don't bother me is just the inconvenience of having this pumps hanging are not to nice. Surgery took 8 hours suuuuuper long but recovery was a breeze, nurses were wonderful as well my PS is such a nice person, she gave me her personal cell phone number in case I need her. I stop taking percocept in my 3rd day after surgery I'm just taking tylenol and antibiotics, I don't need valium or percocept I'm ok without it.
