I am a 39 year old mom of 4 amazing kids (ages 18,14,13 and 3) and an amazing supportive husband. I weigh 125 lbs. I started researching mommy makeover before my 3 year old was born. After she was born I knew that the makeover was the only way to get rid of my "mommy tummy" The excess skin would never go away no matter how much I worked my core! My breasts are what I call a flat C. If it weren't for Victoria Secrets they would have very little shape. My husband and I met with my PS, and scheduled the appointment. I am now 16 days from surgery and I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas!!! I will upload before pictures soon.
Hello Ladies!! Well by this time next week I will...

My goal is to have all of my home prep done this weekend. My hubby keeps telling me not to stress about it and honestly I think I am just trying to keep myself as busy as possible so that I don't sit and read Q&A and Reviews all weekend!! LOL I am obsessed. I think reading what you ladies have gone through helps to relieve some anxiety. Its that fear of the unknown that gets me. I know everyone heals differently but reading about your journeys has really helped me prepare for mine! Thank you all for sharing! Now to bite the bullet and upload my pictures! UGH!
Well 12 hours from now I will make the trek to the...

WARNING: VENTING WILL COMMENCE IN 3....2....1.....
My in-laws were here over the weekend to "help out". I am really blessed to have them but sometimes "help" is more work for me. I am not the type to sit on my hands especially when there is company. I don't want to sound ungrateful but all I can do today is look around and see everything that now needs to be cleaned! I know a little has to do with me being a total control freak and I knew going into this that I would have to let go of that control and trust that my hubby can manage things. BUT just doing the dishes at night does not constitute a clean house. I am really trying to help out as much as possible with out overdoing it. Ok enough of the pitty party..this too shall pass....
Tomorrow I have an appointment with my PS (with my actual PS and not his nurse) and I will be driving for the first time since my surgery! I am a little nervous but I will be fine. Hopefully I can get some pictures tonight when I shower....
Thanks for listening and Happy Healing!!!
Hey Ladies, Hope you are all doing well! I am at...

"The Girls" the girls are swollen but getting better every day! I hope that the swelling goes down soon they are a little sore at times and I get little twinges of pain but it goes away (nerve regeneration I am guessing). I am at a 36DD right now!!!
Tomorrow I go in for my ultrasonic massage!
I took a few pics today. I think my scar is a little high but it is flat and thin.

I don't have to see him again until I am at 2 months.
The Girls are starting to soften and not feel as painful. I still have a lot of numbness on my left side. Hopefully that will get better.
Happy Healing All!!

This is truly the best thing that I have ever done for myself. The way that it has changed the way that I view myself and the confidence that I have back is incredible!! I no longer cringe when I or my husband looks at me naked!!
My Doctor: Douglas L. Gervais, MD
From the moment that I met Dr. Gervais at my consultation I was immediately comfortable with him and his staff. They are all extremely professional and the bedside manor is amazing. When I had questions (which were a lot) or concerns they were always addressed with importance. Thank you Dr. Gervais for the amazing work that you do!! I absolutely love my new body!!
