Mommy Makeover in New York - Long Island

Good morning all, I've been looking over this...

Good morning all, I've been looking over this website for a while now and decided to come and introduce myself! A little about me, I'm 26, 5 foot 10 inches, weigh 190 pounds and have 2 children. The oldest is 8 and youngest is 15 months.

I'm getting a TT, breast aug/lift and lipo of my inner thighs, hips and lower back. Implants will be saline, under the muscle, 450ccs. I am SO nervous!

My husband took 2 weeks off of work to help me recover and help with our son. Do you think I'll be able to hold him or care for him after the 2 weeks? I read the real life tummy tuck survival article, great article! Is there anything else anyone would like to share about the recovery? Anything you wish you had known beforehand?

UPDATE- Good afternoon ladies! I'm now 6 days...

UPDATE- Good afternoon ladies! I'm now 6 days post op and feeling pretty good. To be honest, the pain was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be after reading stories on here! I am still taking my percocet, but only 1 or 2 a day. Only because my back is cramping so badly from being hunched over! lol The first 48 hours were rough, I won't lie. But very manageable with medication. I also had to stay overnight and I'm so happy I did! Having a nurse to help me out for almost 24 hours after surgery was wonderful. I have some pictures that I'll be adding as well. I am THRILLED with my results already! My doctor is amazing and I'm so grateful I found this website and had so much information at my fingertips. Can anyone tell me about lymphatic massage? I've read a few things about it and considering getting one later on.

Today I'm 8 days post op! I've made it...

Today I'm 8 days post op! I've made it this far! lol I'm feeling pretty good except for TERRIBLE back pain due to being hunched over. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow and will update you all then! Hope everyone is well.
