Twins +1 - Louisiana

I'm 34 years old, 5'10 and weigh 155 lbs. I have three precious girls---8 year old twins and a 6 year old. With both pregnancies I gained 75 lbs! (Don't know WHAT I was thinking there!) After having my twins I decided that a tummy tuck was in my future! After 8 years and getting to a weight I am happy with, the procedure is in the works!

My surgery is scheduled for June 8th and I'm anxiously awaiting the day. I've also decided to add boobs to my surgery. I'm a small C now, and not that I want LARGER breasts, I just wanna fill up the area that has gotten sooooooo saggy over the years! I still have not completely decided on the best CC amount to go with. Does anyone have any suggestions?

As of right now, the implants I've chosen are capable of being 330-360cc's. Any other helpful advice, suggestion about either of these procedures is greatly appreciated!! I'm also concerned about the pain level with BOTH procedures. I'm planning to take off about 2 weeks from work, but I'm a nuring home administrator so I've gotta get back pretty quick! Is this a reasonable time off? Photos to come soon.

I'm only 3 days away from my surgery! I'm scared but ready to get the wait over with! Im still on the fence about what size cc's to get. I really don't want bigger breasts! Just fuller where I'm saggy up top. Anyone else get a breast augmentation solely for that purpose? I'm actually pretty modest, I'm just afraid that if I don't get the breasts done, too, I'll regret it later. Ive spent most of the weekend cleaning so that I won't lay in bed wishing I had! I'm a neat freak and I know I'll have family and friends coming over to check on me and I just want everything in order! My husband is awesome, so I know he'll help! Two of my kiddos will be going to camp so that will make things a little easier on us! Ok I took pics so I'll see if I cam figure out how to post them.

It's been 24 hours since my surgery and I really feel pretty good! Of course I've done nothing but lay in the bed and go to and from the bathroom. When I'm up I'm extremely sore! Feels like I've been hit by a bus and like there's an elephant on my chest! But once I get settled back in bed everythings fine again. Even up until the minute before I rolled into OR I still has not officially decided on the cc's for my implants. I ended up picking a 330-360 implant and asked the doc to take a pole in the OR as to what the nurses thought looked best. 360 it is! Ha! They are still bandaged of course but I'm looking forward to the unveiling! As far as pain on a scale of 1-10 I'd say I'm a 6. It's really not been near as bad as I expected! Thank goodness because when it comes to pain I'm a wimp!! Hope this helps some of u concerned about the pain. :) Will post again soon.

Today starts day 3 post op. I'm very sore! I had a TT and BA so getting up to go to the restroom is a challenge. I can't push up with my arms so I have been trying to use my core to get up. Once I'm up it takes me a few minutes to regain my breath, but then I'm ok . As far as pain, I haven't really been in much pain. Just sore and stiff from laying around. My neck and back are getting sore from my poor posture when standing but from reading other posts that seems normal for the procedures I had done. I'm draining about 75-80 ccs every 24 hours. Not sure what the goal is there but it has changed from bright red to a yellow buttery color so I think it's going in the right direction. I'm hoping to have my followup Monday to take out the drain. I have some pics to post but does anyone know if you can post pics from an iPhone to the site?
