Alright everyone!! I am on the countdown!! Two weeks till my BA with lift and TT. I'm getting a little nervous. A little anxious too. I just hope i will love my new body! I am a little worried about the size of my implants. I'm 5'2 120lbs and im getting mentor HPsilicone implants. I want to be a D cup so the PS sais anywhere from 350-450 cc implants..I am worried they will be too big on my small frame.

Well i am home and i have to say that i was not prepared for the pain! I had some lipo done on my armpit area and had some pretty extensive pain moving my arms..my abs are on fire from the tightening i assume! I've been on my meds nonstop so i am hoping this will pass quickly!

I still have some oozing from my drain site but it is getting better.. took acouple of stool softners so hopefully they will kick in soon! Everything is going as good as expected.

Oh ya!! One more thing...kinda funny... but does anyone elses who who seem higher??? I feel like mine is! Idk if its cus my ps had to pull my skin up to meet w my tummy skin or what?!?
Dr. Schmid

Dr. Schmid was very courteous! He did an exellent job with my tummy tuck and he chose a great size of implant for my body.. He picked 400 ccs high profile silicone implants. I stayed overnight and the nurses at NorthStar were absolutely fantastic!! I couldn't have asked for better care!
