Finally,TT and Breast Lift.......3 Kids and 6 Years Working out Later!!!!

I'm just over 3 weeks out from surgery ( date set 9/23) and have decided to let everyone in on my experience!!! My height is 5'4" and currently I weigh around 130lb - I work out 6 days a week and have one of the largest stomachs you will ever see ( will download pre photos v. soon)- I spend 99% of my day having to hold it in or else I am in danger of being asked "when I'm due?" LOL...my breasts also point south and are a pitiful reminder of what they once were... My 3 kids are 4,6 and 8 years old ...so finally they are old enough for me to have the surgery... This site is a source of inspiration and so I hope as my story unfolds I too will help those still wondering.... Currently I am very anxious yet incredibly excited...not so looking forward to the pain but hopefully it will be worth it..( am actually quite concerned as to how my husband will cope with the kids ...any pointers out there are so welcome?????) Will keep you all posted.....

Ok...so great long weekend...ate too much and had some wine...I have pre op appointment this week, so really excited to get some before pictures posted for you'all to see :) Getting more anxious/excited by the day...hope that I still like the PS when I see him later in the week!!!

Ok so had pre op appointment with PS...feel very comfortable with him..so the excitement continues!!!! He took some pre photos ( that will be available to me later)..so my husband and I are going to take some of our own this weekend!!! PS was awesome..took plenty of time to answer questions...even so, still have thought of some more (typical)..so I'll email him later..Struggling to sleep at night..I guess a mixture of anxiety and excitement...any helpful ideas out there are very welcome!

OK...so after a sleepless night spending too much...

OK...so after a sleepless night spending too much time on UTube watching tummy tuck and breast lift surgeries, i am in to the final few days pre surgery...I will post pre piccys this weekend.. I have got my prescriptions filled and have started to get the house/laundry/work/kids/husband..stuff organised(no small feat!!) Still working out hard..I am not looking forward to being unable to hit the gym for the next few weeks..worried that my weight will skyrocket and that I'll feel mentally low..still having read many reviews on this site I am sticking to my "it will be worth it in the end" philosphophy...we'll see..

3 Days to go.....can't quite get myself...

3 Days to go.....can't quite get myself together!! Its probably due to the lack of sleep as much as anything..lots of work/shopping/laundry to do so at least I will be busy...still at the gym every day - I think this helps mentally..hopefully being so fit will help my recovery?...I'll let you all know!From today I am altering my diet to lighter foods and shakes and as suggested by my PS -I am alos taking the stool softeners and added fiber supplements...what joy!!!!

Alright...sleep deprived and as ancy as a cat on...

Alright...sleep deprived and as ancy as a cat on hot bricks I have posted some pre photos....there surely is nothing better than a camera to show you what you really look like...never mind thats why I'm finally in for the OP tomorrow!!! Yippeeee... Got the food in, the laundry under control,getting my work done...now I just need a new tummy and boobies...

Sooooo here we are 1 week post surgery.Everything...

Sooooo here we are 1 week post surgery.Everything went off as planned.. the hospital, and staff were superb!!My new uplifted breasts are quite simply amazing ( they haven't looked like this since I was in my teens) and even though there is some swelling I am very happy. My extended tummy tuck was great ..apparently my PS corrected my stomach muscles by 4 inches..thats HUGE!!! Unfortunately am having lots of swelling in my mid section which makes me feel as big as pre surgery!!! any helpful tips out there will be appreciated!!!Off to see PS today ..hoprfully he will remove the drains.....they are gettingto be really bothersome!!!

I just had to share my feelings this morning...so...

I just had to share my feelings this morning...so I am now 13 days post surgery..thankfully I have had no complications and continue to feel stronger every day..drains came out last Friday and have still been told by my PS to do "very little"..not easy with a husband,job and 3 kids!!!Anyhow took my binder off to shower this morning and was amazed at how much the swelling has gone down..my figure looks astounding ( to me aleast LOL)...need to recharge camera battery (Duh) and get some pics to post...for all you out there on the verge of surgery...be VERY excited but realise recovery ( and results) will take some time dependent on swelling etc...


Posting 6 week pictures....results seem to improve...

posting 6 week pictures....results seem to improve every day!!!.Still wearing compression garments as I get a lot of swelling from working out!...not complaining though this expeirence has been the best thing that I've EVER done for myself...I would recommend it to anyone.Will keep you updated in the next few weeks..
