I am 27 years old nurse practitioner and have 2 children (8 year old son and 3 year old daughter). I am 5'6" and weight 155 lbs. I gained about 45 lbs with my pregnancy with my son and about 40 lbs with my daughter. I had c-sections with both of my children. I am currently 10 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. My son's birth weight was 9 lbs 1 oz and my daughter's birth weight was 9 lbs 4 oz. So needless to say with pregnancy, I got stretch marks across my abdomen and have extra hanging skin. And with breastfeeding each of my kids for 1 year, I lost some volume in my breasts.
I am scheduled for a tt with lipo and ba with non-invasive lift on June 1, 2011. I have been talking about doing this since I had my son. I am ready to get rid of most of my stretch marks, overhang on my pants and have some "life" back in my breasts!! I am actually happy with the size of my breasts but just need some filling out. My husband is very supportive and very excited for me as well. I am having the surgery about 3 hours away from where I live so me and my husband will be staying there for about a week after surgery. This will also give me time to recover without having the kids around. I am so very excited and feel like the day can't come soon enough.
Well this past friday I had my preop visit. We...

This week I plan to get the house cleaned, go grocery shopping, pick up my list of things that I need and pack. I am sure this week will go by quickly with all I need to do. Does anyone know a good brand of zip-up the front sports bra or suggestion for the type of Spanx to get? The countdown continues!
I can't believe tomorrow is the BIG DAY!! I felt...

Everytime I look into the mirror it is so hard for me to believe I will never see the same tummy again. I think I am most excited about having a flat tummy which I haven't had since high school. As I was laying in bed last night my hubby said to me " I think you look amazing right now but I am so excited for you to be happy with your body." WOW a new body, I can't believe this is happening!!!
Well I am back at the condo we are staying at for...

I have talked to several of my friends and some family. It's difficult when people are not excited for you. I feel like some of their reactions haven't been that good. Oh well, because I did this for me. Every day gets better and better. I am going to try to post some pics soon.
Well I am home now and it feels good to be back...

I am feeling better each day and I don’t need to take my pain meds anymore except at night to help me sleep. I stepped on the scale for the first time today and I was down almost 10 lbs, I was so amazed because I am still so swollen but very happy with that. My breasts are settling nicely and I know each day my swelling will go down by a little. I don’t think I will see the extent of my non-invasive lift until they have settled completely. Also, my PS did some lipo around my armpit area (I call it bra fat) which I really can tell a difference. I will post some more pics soon of me 1 week post op. Hope everyone that is along with me in this is doing well! Happy Healing!
My PS was wonderful. She really took the time to explain things and I really felt that she cared about me having the best outcome. She stands behind her work and has great bedside manner. She even called me the night before surgery to answer any further questions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
