Mommy Make over - Novi, MI

I have two children a two and half year old who was 10.4 lbs born and I gained over 80lbs. With I lost 50 lbs. of it then I had a daughter 4 months ago and she was 9.14 lbs. needless to say I had two huge babies and was stretched to the max. I'm 28 years old and don't want to feel bad about myself for the rest if my life.

Yesterday December 27,2012 I had a tummy tuck with flank/ hip lipo. This is day two and with the pain meds the pain is manageable. I had a check up today and all looks good. Hips are purple a d swollen and so is stomach to some extent. My belly button looks gross. I hate the fact I can't help out much with the kids. I'm hoping within the next 2 months ill be happy with results.

Today is day 5 po tt. I left house for a bit. Sat in car to watch hubby and sled followed by a target trip. Not being able to leave on nye was crappy and I feel already that people don't wanna help out with kids. My husband goes back to work tomorrow and my sister is suppose to be here but I'm a little worried about that. I'm used to being the one to take care of others and not even being able to take care of kids or house is driving me crazy. The pain comes and goes I'm just on ibrophin at this point just in case I have to drive. Back is starting to ache. I did not have the drainage tube so from what I hear that's a huge plus. I've lost only 2 lbs. but still swollen in belly and hips especially.

Today is day 8 and was getting bugged about house...

Today is day 8 and was getting bugged about house so messy so got up and cleaned a bit. Then bro in law came over with stomach flu so I ran around again disinfecting everything. Went to doc and all looked good. Since I didn't have drainage tubes I have a little fluid so doc went in and sucked out some fluid. I must say it was gross and uncomfortable and have to go back next week to do it again. I guess the couple mins. Of discomfort is better than drainage tunes though. He also took tape off so some bleeding and lots of scabbing. Belly button still looks gross but doc said it'll be normal within 4 months. I go back to work Monday a little nervous about that. So far so good. Pain was a lot less than I phyced myself up for. Post pics tomorrow. Lost 6 lbs so far

So not sure how I'm feeling my incsion looks...

So not sure how I'm feeling my incsion looks crooked but aS it heals I'm sure it'll look better. Still sore little. Went for po apt and they only took out half the amount if fluid since last week which is good because when it's gone no more binder. I'm able to now lift my five month old daughter, thank god my two year old is understanding. I bought a pair of jeans because I had none that fit me right. I'm happy to saw I was able to buy pants that I didn't have to buy high or big to cover my bulge. Still not able to really go pant shopping because not really normal yet.

Hey ladies! It's been 6 1/2 weeks now. I've been feeling really good. I started working out even this week. I now see a problem. If you look at my side view pics you can see swelling all of a sudden. I see the dr. Again on Thursday but hoping I didn't ruin anything not hurting really just a little sore. Also my belly button still looks weird hoping the scar will get better. I've gone from size 14 to size 10 and down 10 lbs.

It's been almost 5 months po. I'm glad I got the surgery but I have some imperfections. My left hip is little bigger and I don't like my scars. In oct. dr. Is going to mke corrections in office because ill be 9 month po. He's going to get rid of belly button scar and fix left hip. I've Gone from size 14 pants to size 8. I have several stretch marks in belly and still have some working off thighs so not sure about bikini this year. I'm really happy with the way I look in clothes and more confident about myself.
