I am a mother of 4 beautiful children. Age 7,5, 3 and 1 year. I am 38 years old. I am going in for a full TT, breast reduction/lift, lipo to hip area.
I breast feed all four children and my body hasn’t been the same. I work out 5 days a week at the gym, and try to eat healthy. I have done every diet possible, my body isn't changing. I have always had large, heavy breast even before children. At age 12 I was a full C cup and a size zero. I always hated the negative attention I received as a child; it was very embarrassing to me.
My goal has always been to wait until I am finished having children/breastfeeding. I cannot believe my time has come! I am excited and nervous at the same time!
I know my thoughts are like a lot of mothers on here. Am I sure I want to go through this? Is it going to be worth it? What do I tell my young children I am doing? How am I going to manage the recovery time? What if I don't wake up?
Please say a prayer for me if you think of it. I appreciate all the support from you ladies!
Happy healing to all!

Thank God, I didn't remember anything, I had a fear of waking up during surgery. The first thing I remember is having the chills/shakes coming off of the anistisia. Feeling so cold. They just keep reminding me to take deap breaths and it eventually wore off. I am the most pleased with my tolleit seat riser and recliner chair, I don't know how I could have made it with out it!
Tomorrow the drains come out! Yay! They are the worse!
The worse days are behind me and the best days are ahead!!

The removal of the drains was uncomfortable, I would recommend taking a pain pill before you go just to take the edge off.
I will post pics as soon as I can, I'm still bandaged so its difficult to see, and I have a lot of swelling. Each day is getting better!
Happy healing to all!!

Sorry I haven't been very good about posting stuff, I will try to be better! It has been 2 months post op and i am still very pleased with my results. As always we can complain I wish I was smaller here or there but I have concluded to be content and thankful that I was able to have a mommy makeover.
I really had a great experience with my surgery and recovery. I want to encourage those who are going In For a mommy make over not to worry because its never as bad as it seems!
I started back at the gym 1 month post op. I have been enjoying running (I was never a runner before because of the size of my breast !) anyway I am now able to do everything I did before with out limitations!
Best of luck to everyone. Hope you all enjoy th holidays! Merry Christmas to all!
