Loving the new me...I am HOT

I am 38 with 2 children ages 17 and 2, and I really did not bounce back after having the first baby so I have decided that now is the time to do it as I will not be having any more children. Originally I had planned on only doing the tummy tuck, since thats what bothers me most, but my ex husband talked me into doing the breasts too and donated the money for that, I wanna say thank u sir to him...lol.

I will try and post some before pictures as soon as I am able to. I am so ready for this procedure, I am only a tad bit scared because of the anesthesia, but I do know its very safe and since I will be doing my surgery in a hospital and not a clinic, I do feel a little safer, knowing that if anything goes wrong, the response time will be quicker.

The price quoted is for TT, lipo and breast aug, it also includes the anesthesia fee, one night stay at the hospital, operating room fee, tax, implants and surgeons fee.

If u have any question, feel free to ask

Good luck to you next week!! You will love your new body when it's all done.

Well I am ready, I have cleaned the house spotless, all laundry is washed and packed away, I am just waiting for tomorrow to make my journey to NYC, I will stay with a friend until my drains are removed. I am going to miss my children, this is my first time being away from them and I find myself giving them extra hugs and cuddles this week.
Good luck to you tomorrow!! It's your big day! Keep us posted on your recovery process.

You go on tomorrow for your surgery...I know you are super anxious, excited, and nervous all at once! I'm wishing you a safe recovery. My pain is mild. I hope you have the same. Try to get some rest tonight.

My surgery went well, I am a little sore but not really in pain I got a chance to see my stomach today and I am in love, my scar is super low too, I know I will b pleased. I did not get the lipo to my flanks, because I have sickle cell trait and once had a flare up.....the doc said one of the meds used in lipo is dangerous for people with sickle cell and though I only have the trait he wanted to b safe, but he made it so they are no so fat.
I'm so glad your surgery went well. Get some rest Im not in pain just discomfort. I'm glad to hear you're doing the same.

Woke up this morning a little nausea and almost threw up, after that pain I felt in my tummy from the little gag I took my meds and took a nap. I am all fine now, no pain just a sore tummy, I love my tummy already.....I have not seen my breasts yet, won't see them until Tuesday.
Yah! It's over! So glad to hear you are happy with your tummy:)! What a wonderful feeling! Hope all else is going well!

Don't be bummed, you look wonderful! Smile, you are beautiful! (hugs)

So I went out last nite, without my binder of course, but I was wearing a compression garment and let me tell u, I was uncomfortable the whole time, my stomach was in knots and stiff like a board, couldnt wait to get home to put my binder on
Did Dr. Myers show you pictures of his previous work? I am running into problems viewing before and after pictures because of HIPA laws.
Reply
did not see any of his pics, but I knew someone that used him. I did interview 2 other doctors there too and I felt more comfortable with him and I am loving my results its getting better looking each day

I am so happy for you! I can't wait to see updated pics of you! You are good-to-go for the summer! So you gotta tell me...how fun is it now shopping for clothes that atually fit you the way they are supposed to? I can hardly wait for that! I just hate tucking in my pot-belly in my my jeans! Do you wear the same size preTT? Because of my belly I'm a size 8, but I think postTT I'll be a 6.

So I went back to the gym today and took a step class, that was a lot of work, when I was done I was so swollen, but I will continue to go
Hi. How can I locate your doctor? I have his name, but do you have a phone number where I can contact him to make an appointment? I am desperate to do my mommy makeover before I turn 30.

Thanks! =D

You go girl! A step class! I haven't tried anything as high impact but you give me hope!!
Reply
Wow you took a step class already? You are feeling real good! It still feels funny when i dont have my binder on. I dont think i can do all that jumping around. I could barely dance when i went out w/ Hubby. You are definately going to be Hot this summer!

I dont want to gross anyone out, but, I just wanted to share that I was able to be intimate with my hubby for the first time yesterday and it was not uncomfortable at all, and it was also his firt time getting to touch my boobs, he is so in love with them

That's good you can take all the time you need to and ease back into the daily grind. Lucky girl! I've made my appt with Dr. Myers for April 26th! I hope he can accomodate my schedule. My last day of work is June 28th (I work in a school). I understand that fellows are usually finished around that time. I'll try to get out of work a week earlier if I have to though.

Thank you so much. I have contemplating getting my breasts done along with a tummy tuck - but the fake boob look has never been appealling to me or my husband but then again neither is the saggy look either. I'm from Northern Va - not far from you - how long did you stay in NY after your surgery? How long is the trip to go to your Post OP appts? You look awesome!!

So the hubby said he is going to break all the mirrors in the house, because I admire myself too much, and I am now starting to make love to myself...lol
hahaha!!!! I love the comment by your husband! Well you do look beautiful and your scar looks fabulous!!!

You look Fab !
But your Dr's name wasn't listed as a plastic surgeon at Lenox Hill Hospital, is that where you had it done? That price is great especially for that neighborhood, ten blocks north I saw a private practice Dr. and he wanted $10,000 for TT and $9300 for a BL and that was just HIS fee, nothing else included ! Whoa!

Went out yesterday and wore a jeans, wrong Idea, I was in so much pain, I had to go to my girlfriend and borrow a dress, I guess I am still not ready.....bummer
Hi everyone, I read some of the posts on here. Although I'm alittle late I had a consult with Dr. Myers last year and my regret is that I didn't go ahead with my surgery with him. He is no longer with Lenox Hill. I actually emailed him through his Lenox Hill email from last year and he still emailed me back which I thought was amazing. He lives in Ohio now so I a bit upset but I do have a consult again at Lenox Hill on Thursday. Does anyone have any suggestions for another surgeon there? Please let me know and good luck everyone!

Congrats on the new you! you look great. Your PS did a nice job on your incision. I hope mines looks as good. I'm scheduled for Nov 8th. I'm ready!!

You are about to be my newest best friend. Your pictures look great and you used the same place that I'd like to go Lenox Hill. You paid 7k total for a tummy tuck and breast lift and all other operating room costs? I am NOT a fan of hidden fees and I have family in New York, so I'd like to go to Lenox Hill, but Im a little scared about opting to have a fellow do my work!!! Please confirm the price, because in this situation the price sounds right!!! Your pics look wonderful!!

so I have decided to go ahead and do smart lipo on my flanks, because I do have a great looking front, and horrible looking sides it is currently on sale for $1600 total for the lipo and the garment....lets see
Thank you so much for posting pics and telling your story. I am a mom of two as well and have been considering surgery for a while and my biggest concern honestly was the scarring. Most of the time when you see before and after pictures it usually isn't on someone with a darker skin complexion and while I understand there will be scarring I wanted a realistic outlook on what to expect and your images gave me that.

Wow, I am amazed you look beautiful! What a talented plastic surgeon you had. GirlLLL you hit the jackpot! lol .. I also like to get a mommy makeover to bad ... You have no idea just read your story had me emotional because I can't image how happy you feel being comfortable in your own body. I CRY ALOT .. because, I never had the experience that my friends had at a young age. Enjoying there bikini bodies, going to the beach. I hate going to the beach, pool, lake etc. Only if... UHh... lol ...I just wish you the best luck girl, if you like to give me any advise on your surgeries, I would greatly appreciate it. I am also looking into getting surgery at Lenox too. Thanks for reading... ttyl

Dr. Robert Myers

Dr. Myers is very patient and listens to everything that you have to say, his staff is wonderful. He is currently a fellow at Lenox Hill hospital in New York, if I had to do another procedure I would use him in a heartbeat
