I am having an extended tummy tuck, breast lift with augmentation, and lipo of the hips and under my chin.
I have been wanting to have a mommy makeover for a while, but I am finally going to do it. The opportunity has come that my husband and I will be able to take off of work at the same time so he can care for me. So my surgery is scheduled for June 2, 2011. I would love to have to have it sooner but June will be the perfect time to do it.
I have two children ages 9 and 7. I just recently had a hysterectomy so no more baby's for me. I have wanted this surgery for six years now but I threw around the idea of having another baby until I physically could not.
I met my doctor two weeks ago. He was the first and only PS I have been to. But I was very comfortable with him and his staff. I am going on a another consult tomorrow just to see what my options are. I'm afraid I'm putting all my eggs in one basket just picking the first PS I met with and not exploring my options. This is a huge, life changing decision so I want to explore my options as best that I can. I'm very anxious although I'm ready. My only problem I have had so far is I'm afraid I will look the same after surgery. I don't feel I have unrealistic expectations but I'm a visual person. I have had this body for the last six years and I can't imagine looking any different or not having the belly and saggy boobs. Has anyone else experienced these feelings?
This website has been amazing for me. I read as many story's as I can I spend hours learning about other people's experiences. I wanted to know exactly what I was getting myself into with this surgery and I think there's no better person to hear it from then someone that has been there and done that. So thanks to everyone for sharing there experiences. It is not only helpful but very insightful.
