Breast Lift with Augmentation & Lipo in Thighs/Tummy - New York, NY

I'm 32 years old. I'm 5'3 and...

I'm 32 years old. I'm 5'3 and currently weigh 116. About 7 years ago I lost 108 pounds with a trainer/nutrionist. I've kept the weight off and have always hated my thighs. I thought lipo was the answer but after meeting a few surgeons I was told it would deflate my thighs even more. So now I'm getting lipo with a Medial thigh lift. After everything I've read on the surgery I cant say I'm thrilled but its the only way to achieve the legs I want. It seems the recovery stories I've read have been a little scary but I'm hoping its all worth it.

I'm also having a Breast Lift with augmentation. I'm currently a 32DDD. I'm looking to go to a large D or small DD. Not sure what to expect after this either. I'm hoping again its all worth it. With this surgery this Friday I'd love to hear feedback from anyone who has experienced either of these surgeries. I'm not nervous yet but I know I will be in a couple days

I am sure you're going to love the results. Just be sure to keep in mind that they are not instantaneous! It took you awhile to loose your weight, and it is also going to take awhile to heal from these surgeries too. You should realistically start seeing the begining of your results at the 6 week post op mark, and your final results anywhere between 6 months to a year. The bruising will go away fairly early on, but the swelling will go up and down and remain for quite some time. Keep your head up and trust your surgeon. Try not to panic if the results aren't there in just a few days. Many of us go into cosmetic surgery with the belief that it is a "quick fix" or we think "I am going to wake up all better", when in reality that is not the case. Plastic surgery like you had, is a very invasive procedure that cause a lot of cellular "trauma". This is what is going to cause swelling and it is the swelling that will keep your from seeing your results quickly. So keep hydrated and follow your doctors instructions!

Its been a week and 2 days since my surgery. Things went better then expected as far as recovery. 5 days post I felt good, stopped all pain meds. At 7 day I had my 1st Post Op app. That consisted of having the stitches removed from my legs & stomach from Lipo. Breast stitches dont get removed until 2 week follow up. I cant say Im thrilled to be in compressions for 6 weeks but things could be worse.
As far as my procedures go I only had a breast lift with 250cc saline implants, lipo in mid stomach, along with lipo to thighs. My surgeon recommended trying just lipo before committing to a thigh lift. He felt at my age the scars would bother me since I have a history of not scaring well. I'm hoping he's right

I'm at week 4. I still notice no difference in my legs. I'm happy to have lifted breasts. I'm currenting working on scar treatment. I'm using Oleeva silicone strips. I'm only 2 weeks into using them & so ready to be done. They are a pain in my opinion. I'm hoping after the next 10 weeks of using them theres a difference. I can resume light cardio this Monday so very excited about that :)
