So happy I did this for myself!! Better and better each day..

So I'm getting what everyone calls a "Mommy Makeover", but I've never had kids. My body looks otherwise, well at-least to me. lol. I've lost close to 70lbs, I'm not exactly sure how much I lost just because when I hit 201 I stopped getting on the scale. I also made sure I lost weight prior to getting back on, I was scared to know just how big I had gotten. I'm sure I weighed at-least 210...

So I've kept the weight off for a couple years and I'm looking to get a Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation and Liposuction. I'm ready to have the sexy body I've worked for. I'm excited and nervous all in one huge ball of emotions. I wish the date was closer. I have way too much time to worry.. I look better now than I ever have, but I worry something could go wrong and I'll come out worse than when I went in. Come on July 1st!

BTW I'm 5'2" and weight 138... I hope...

BTW I'm 5'2" and weight 138... I hope to be down to 130lbs prior to surgery.

17 more days!! PO visit tomorrow. Getting very excited and nervous.

Almost there... Three and a half days to go!! I'm excited and still alittle nervous. I've believe I have all my supplies ready, knock on wood. I'm so glad for this website. It has answered so many questions and has put my mind at ease about some things. I'm the kinda person that likes to plan. It's the unknown that scares me. When you get so many view points from people you can have a good idea of what's instore for yourself. Thanks again everyone.

Things have been getting better as time goes on, The first couple of days were pretty rough. I'm hoping to see results tomorrow, still haven't had a post op appointment yet. I was rather pissed after the surgery, between RX mixups and clumsy nurses I was at wits end. I'll post more as I feel up to it. I'll also post pics. Thanks again to all.

I'm really glad I did my research prior to having my procedures done. I think Dr.'s don't give you all the gory details so you don't have second thoughts, any more than I'll update pics and info as I have time and am up to it. I'm feeling good and am very happy with my results so far. This site has been a huge help. Thanks to everyone.

I got my stitches out yesterday! whoopee!! Sorry...

I got my stitches out yesterday! whoopee!! Sorry it took me so long to update, everything's be crazy. I'm so happy I did this. I look so good in clothes and out.. lol. I've got some tips and maybe pointers to add to this post. I'll do that when I get more time. One for right now that I haven't seen on here is I had a large mans button down shirt I used instead of a robe. The cotton was cooler and when getting out of my chair my boyfriend and mom could grab the front, when unbuttoned and use it to pull me up. Saved me from a lot of unneeded straining. Thanks for all the well wishes, I'll add more later. Good luck to all.
Dr. Kaplan

I love the work the Dr did, he's so smart and gifted in what he does that I think he's a little socially awkward. Not in a necessarily bad way, just different. But after what he did for me I wouldn't recommend anyone else. I'm so happy with my results. He also made sure to answer every question I had, no matter how petty or strange. LOL. The things we worry about when undergoing a major surgery. Silly things..

97% of RealSelf users rate the Mommy Makeover as worth it, so you likely will, too. As long as you've chosen an ASPS board certified surgeon who you're comfortable is on the same page as you, you can probably just breathe easy and try to enjoy the ride! I hope you'll come back and let us know how you're doing as the big day nears!
