My surgery date is 4/9/13. I'm getting a tummy tuck, breast lift with augmentation (memory gel silicone unders) lipo of my flanks and back. I am having so many mixed emotions. I have wanted this for years but now that I have scheduled it I am scared to death! The thought of going under anesthesia for 5 hours frightens me. I have had surgery 3 times before and everytime I have had a rapid heartbeat. I'm not sure if I should risk it again. My head says no but my heart says do it !Also I am still confused about what size implants. My PS said 400cc's would look good for me actually have to have one 375 & the other 400, got some lopsided stuff going on.

My surgery is in 9 days! I am sooo excited and nervous. Had my pre op appointment the other day and we decided 375 cc s for the left breast and 425 for the right. Silicone moderate profile unders. I will be having my procedure done at a hospital and staying for 2 days. I have been eating so unhealthy for the past 2 weeks. Maybe nerves? I usually am very healthy and workout dailyly so I'm not sure what's going on. I just can't wait to get to the flat side!

8 more days! I cannot believe how fast time has gone by. I thought i would never get to where i am today. I'm still having mixed emotions. The worth it ratings are always positive and people usually say they would do it again in a minute, but I'm still so nervous! I wish i could fast forward time to a few days after the surgery. My husband works in another state and he will be with me at the hospital for the 2 days i will be there but after that I'm on my own. I'm hoping i can handle things on my own and not be in to much pain. I'm sure some of you have done it own your own. Anyone have any suggestions on how to make things easier when your taking care of yourself?

5 more days! So ready to do this and start recovering. Excited and nervous at the same time. I have been getting things ready and cleaning everything i see. Ready as i will ever be.

Well tomorrow is my day! I have to arrive at the hospital 6 am. I thought the day would never get here. I am having mixed emotions. I want this so bad but i keep second guessing my decision. I think anxiety has taken me over. I keep telling myself everything will be okay. Then i get those negative thoughts that creep in. Why am i doing this? I have 2 boys and a wonderful husband that love me for who i am. I have wanted this for about 15 years. I'm really feeling out right now. 11.5 hours to go! Hope my anxiety doesn't stop me from going through with it.

I made it to the side yesterday! My surgery went well. A little 5 hours. So glad it's done and I'm on my road of recovery. I'm not gonna lie it's very painful. The chest tightness and pain between my breasts is the worst. But I'm staying position and know each day will be better than the last.

I cannot believe it has been 8 days since my surgery! I had my first post op Dr appointment today. MY DRAIN IS GONE! I am so happy about that. I even drive myself to the appointment which was a 2 hour drive round trip. I've actually been driving since po day 3. I need my freedom! Another thing that I'm totally excited about.......I am allowed to wear spam or flexies! I already went to the mall and bought a flexie! So much more comfortable. Doc says I'm healing great. Next week another visit. Hope ya all are healing well and happy!

I cannot believe it's been 16 days since my mommy makeover! I thought i would never get to a point where i feel good again. I honestly have to say i feel better every day. I went to Victoria's secret and got measured and bought a new bra and panties. I am a 34DD. Omg! I asked my PS for a full C. I'm hoping they go down after they drop! Hope everyone is healing well and happy!

I read reiews on this website and a few others and he is highly referred. Also he has the ability to make you feel very comfortable and he is very knowledgeable. I just felt like we communicated well and he knew exactly what I was looking for. I feel as if I will be in good hands!
