I am 47 and I had my wonderful son at 41 and it can take a toll on you at that age when you gain an impresive 70lbs and have a 10.2lb baby.
I just kind of gave into my aged body and was trying to deal with the big change, but was approved and covered to have my breast reduced by insurance so I thought why not do both at once. TT/ Breast reduction with some lipo to even things out.
I am so happy to have found this site to read, learn and be prepard for the surgery.
I tend to over think everything so this is going to get worse before it gets better. I am doing my best to stay calm but it is going to be a roller coaster. I am not as worried about the pain as I am the anestisia(did i spell that right?) and not waking up or getting a clot....and when I DO wake up and being in so much pain not being able to snuggle with my son in the mornings when he comes to our room. I don't want to scare him or for him to pass the stage of wanting to be with Mommy while I am healing He is the BEST THING in the world. Ill post photos later.

Well less than 7 weeks to go. Wish I had it done last year, I'm on my way to Mexico next week and would have loved to wear a 2pc. I am trying to eat right and work out but not doing either very well the last 2weeks. I will try to keep at it while on vacation. I weigh 157 and wish I was 10-15 lbs less before surgery. I might be able to lose 8 before SURG. But will be tough.
Well just needed to put my goals out there and then I might just do it.

Well a set back :( my PS called me today and said he talked with my Doctor and said I have some risks involved with my procedure and we does not feel comfortable to do the full Mommy make over at once. He wants to do the breast reduction and a little lipo then do the TT after he sees how I do. I thank him for looking out for me but I had everything planned down to the day and now I will have 2 surgeries and more time I will need to find to get this done. I know I could take it but better safe than sorry and to boot more $. I take medication to lower my immune system and he is afraid of infection and a lung issue I had several years ago.(but I am all better now:)) anyway back to the hard task to plan this. I don't know if I can do it within in this year with all the work I have and travel scheduled. Just had to vent.

Ok update is I will be getting my breast lift and lipo of flanks bra line and outer thighs on June 1 Then in a few months if time permits I will be getting my TT. PS feels safer doing the separate so I am not under for so long. Well at least I can get my outer thighs done now since I am having 2 surgeries now, he would not do all of it together before. little less nervous.......but still nervous.

Well one week away for the first 1/2 of my Mommy Make over. I have my Breast reduction and lipo June 1st. Getting nervouse.
I posted pictures today and I hate them. I do have to say the are wider than i really am but the shape is correct and boy my breasts have sagged so much BLAH!!!!
Ok I am so ready for my TT. Just got my Breast...
Ok I am so ready for my TT. Just got my Breast reduction and lipo and feeling fine in a weeks time. Lipo was the hardest. I pS said I could do the TT in 6 weeks if I wanted to. Still a little scared of anesthesia but need really think I will regret it if I don't do it.....I NEED IT. I was so nervous the first couple of days about clots and my lungs and a heart attack. My mind flies. But feel real good....little sore but not much. Nothing but tylinol since day 3
Now to fine the time. I will need to take a week off work and then work from home for a week.

My breast still are sore and tender:( almost 4 weeks POI also am not too happy with my nipple placement. As low as they were before the lift... just with smaller breasts.
Also a little boxy. Looks strange naked but looks good in cloths. I can t seem to send pics via iPad or iPhone so will have to wait until I get to a laptop. doc said I need to let them settle but not sure they will settle in the right place. I'm hoping. If the sorriness goes away I don't think I will dwell on as much. When I go in for my TT maybe he can lift the nipple but then there is always the chance that It will not be what I want. Oh my what to do....

I am scheduled to get my TT on Oct 6th. My breast lift went well and is feeling good now. Still a little tender but good. I am going to ask when I go in for my TT to raise my nipples a littleif it is not too hard. They are just a little too low and I told him I wanted them higher. I was on the fence about getting the TT but I know I will be so happy when I do. A friend of mine who is a nurse said that blood clots ate most common when having surgery in the belly area.....That freaked me out!!!, I have a few more months to work out more and feel better but I don't want to lose too much weight since I don't want my breasts to get any smaller. Going from a F to a DD was small enough.

Well I'm 18 days PO went back to work at 7 days from home office and went back to work on the road today. What a day. I am really tight right now. It was a 9 hour day on the road and in meetings. I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. As soon as I can stand straight all day and stretch I will be so happy. They say my cloths will get loose but right now they are a bit tight. I weigh a few lbs less but my waste and hips measure 1.5 inch larger. I am looking forward to the smaller version. Spirits are good but need more rest and really don't have much time to do so. I'm happy I'm on the other side of the hill now and looking foreword to the improved bod.
I have been out many times with friends and customers and not one person said I look thinner or different, but I guess I'm hunched over and it really is not weight lose but a flat belly. Wait I wear that little black dress for the Christmas party :)
I still have not told Anyone but my husband I got this done. But so glad I can check in here to talk about it.
I hope everyone is doing well.
