Hi everyone, I am 24 yrs old with 4 children (one csection), 5'4 and about 118lbs. i lost my nice flat tummy and "perky" breasts at the age of 18 :( I have finally decided to fix the issues i have now from pregnancy ( with a multiple pregnancy ) loose skin, lots of strecth marks and deflated breasts after breastfeeding each child for 10 months. My surgery is less than 2 weeks away and I am very nervous. Im scared about the pain I will be in when I wake up and Im scared I wont like the results. I am dying to wear a bathing suit again and if I still feel like I cant after the surgery I will be devestated! I am also getting the tear drop gummy bear implants 295cc. Im just looking for a little support and words of encouragment :) also what to expect when i wake up from my mommy makeover! Thank you in advance :)

Tomorrow is the big day!! I'm very anxious and nervous for the recovery. Wish me luck :)

Today is the day !!! I'm surprisingly very calm right now and even slept like a baby last night. I assumed I would be a nervous wreck and be tossing and turning all night. Maybe it's the calm before the storm lol I go in at 11 today just a little more than 3hrs. I hope the 1hr car ride goes fast and my stomach doesn't do flip flops. Here's hoping everything goes well today :)

Hi everyone! Well I made it through! I am in my private room for the night and am very groggy right now, I keep passing in and out for a few minutes and I'm waiting on a visitor so I'm trying to stay awake. Right now I'm not in any pain and am definitely thinking my csection hurt most. But who knows with all the drugs lol I will try and check in tmrw! Good luck to anyone in recovery right now or getting close to getting there surgery :)

2 days post op today and things are goin okay. Every time I take my pain medd I get really dizzy and some nausea and end up falling asleep. My stomach is gurgling a lot and i think I need to go to the washroom but can't just yet :( my breasts are really tight feeling today I can't wait to get past this. Anyone else going through this our gas experienced stuff like this ?

Well I wish I didn't attempt to spread out my meds...

Well I wish I didn't attempt to spread out my meds because now I'm feeling the pain :( I'm trying to get my reg doses back on schedule and hopefully that helps. My tummy is still fine it's my breast that are tight and sore. I moved my arm alittle too fast earlier and felt a sharp burning sensation. I thought the boobs were suppose to be the easy part of this deal. Anyone else feeling like this?

Yay the drains are out!! And it hurt like a bitch,...

Yay the drains are out!! And it hurt like a bitch, thinking about it is still making me cringe! I'm deformity not looking forward to getting the stitches out next week from my belly button and breasts. I'm not really happy with my scar :( but instead of getting depressed about it I've decided to wait it out. I'm only 1 week post op and I'm trying to remember it takes time to heal.

It's been awhile since I have had the chance to...

It's been awhile since I have had the chance to post. I will be 3 weeks post op tomorrow which I am so excited for! My ps said I can take my binder, steri strips off then and switch to a regular bra with no underwire. I have seen a few ladies on here who have worn the binder and strips longer, wondering if maybe I should continue those a little longer? My scar looks great a pencil thin line and its not even red! However there is a scab in the middle and I was told this will heal like any other scab you would have. My belly button scar is still light red and I can't wait for it to lighten, this is what I am most worried about!

Today is my first really down day :( I am starting...

Today is my first really down day :( I am starting to hate my belly button so much. It looks to me more like a half outtie on top with a little innie on the bottom. The scar on the bottom half is inside so you can't even see it but the top is on the outside and quite noticeable. Is this normal for 4 wks for it to still be so swollen and the scar so noticeable. My tummy tuck scar looks better to me than the belly button scar. I just started using mederma 4 days ago I'm hoping that will help with the scar but what about the overall look of it :( I feel like I may as well kept the sagging skin I still won't be able to wear a bikini if my belly button stays like this!

Well I can't believe its been so long since I...

Well I can't believe its been so long since I started this. I am very happy I did not everything went or turned out the way I expected but I can honestly say I am more confident and 100% happy I did this. I am absolutely in live with my new breasts lol! I was on the fence about then but they are a-mah-zing! My stomach is doing well and I know in even more time scars with fade swelling with fade and it will be so much better than what I ended up with after pregnancy geeze it already is ;) I tried working out but I feel so weak and my and get sore. I see my ps next week for the first time since surgery(seen the nurse twice) in 9 wks. Strange I know :| hopefully but next weekend I will back into the exercise to tone this tummy!
Name not provided

Omg I wish I could sleep, I pass out for 10 minutes at a time but can't sleep. My tummy doesn't hurt at all and I am so thankful for that right now. My boobs have started to hurt though just tight feeling I was fine until I pushed on my arms trying to get back in bed after the bathroom. I can still breath fine and lift my arms up enough to scratch my head lol they don't feel heavy either. I got a sneak peek of them when the nurse loosend my bandage some to help with the discomfort and I was surprised at how well they look for being so new! I hope all this good need doesn't give I feel very blessed right now :) thank you to the ladies on here talking to you and reading your stories has really gotten me through so far :)

Thanks no I haven't I don't see him for another 4 wks. I feel stupid for calling and taking time from them. They are over an hr away so I wouldn't be able to just make the trip. I asked a question on here though and so far the replys have been that is normal. So that's making me a feel alittle better :)

I would talk to your PS about a possible revision. It will have to wait until you are fully healed, but it will most likley before bikini season :)

Hey! Soooo...how does it compare to a csection or engorement? Wishing you a fast recovery!
  • Reply
Definitely easier than a section, for me anyways. I've been very surprised at how little pain I've had, really none concerning my tummy tuck except for a little tenderness when my underwear rub a certain spot of my scar. I do think the boobs are worse than engorged boobs but still not even close to being painful like I thought. The only thing that bugs me is when I wake up they feel stiff and kinda sore so I just massage them for a minute and then they feel fine again!

That is awesome. I'm sure your BB will lighten more as the time passes.

Thanks it isn't very deep either, some of it almost seems flag :/

I'm sorry. Mine too. Would you mind posting a pic of it?

Mine looked like that. It could be that you are very swollen. Have you talked to your ps about using earplugs? I used earplugs (cut in half) and a quarter taped over it because the earplugs would just pop out. lol After my swelling went down, bb was no longer as flat and out. To be honest, whenever my body gets swollen it starts to look like that again and I then go back to using the earplug and quarter.

I don't go back in to see him until January 17th, do you think that would be to long to wait? I definitely am swollen I had my jeans done up for a minute and I had the button imprint and everything else into my skin and they aren't even right jeans lol I need to go pick up a cream to lighten my scar I was thinking mederma? Thanks :)

I'm not sure if it would be too late or not. I would think, but don't know for sure. Why don't you call your PS. I'm sure he or someone in his office can advise you on what to do. With the scars, I'm not sure either. I've read that mederma is real good and has worked great for some, but I haven't tried it myself. To be honest I haven't used anything yet. I just make sure to always wear the tape because my PS stated that would help with the scars and so far mine are getting really light and smooth. Someone also advised me on Palmer's Oil (http://www.palmers.com/product/detail.php?ID=74&SID=6) and it's not expensive.
