I am a 46 year old mother of 3 grown kids, ages 27,25 & 19. I have wanted a tummy tuck and breast augmentation for years and years! I love my kids but they all have done a job on my body. I am 5'9" and I weigh 140. Before having kids I weighed about 118, which was very much under weight. So needless to say after my 1st pregnancy and getting up to 153 lbs I was pretty stretched out. I almost immediatly got down to a good weight but my stomach was covered with stretch marks and loose skin. Well now that they are all grown and I'm done taking care of them I decided it's time to take care of me. I am scheduled for a breast lift, implants and tummy tuck. I am very excited but also very nervous as the time gets closer. I live in Texas but have chosen to have my surgery in OKC. I love my Dr. She is very concerned with what I am interested in achieving with my body and has even given me her opinion on how things will look. I will being spending the night in the hospital as she wants to make sure all is going well before I am sent home.
I have chosen 425cc high profile silicone gel implants to achieve a full C to small D cup. Right now I am a droopy B to low C cup. I have been reading almost all of these posts on here to see how others have dealt with their surgeries. I will be taking 5 weeks off of work and I hope that's enough. I am a mail carrier and do quite a bit of walking. Not a whole lot of heavy lifting now that the holidays are over and if I have something heavy I can always get help. I just hope the walking doesn't bother me. I will post pics as soon as I have my hubby take some before then after.
Ok well I'm just 5 days away from the big day now....

All of my follow up appt. went great. I left all the tape on all of my incisions for as long as I could. When the tape came off I had NO scabs and everything looked great! As soon as the tape came off which was at about the 2 week point if I can remember correctly I started putting vitamin E oil on all of the incisions. My PS was amazed at how good my scars were looking. She asked what I was using and I told her. She said keep doing it.
Everything has dropped into place nicely. My boobs did sit high for about a month to 5 weeks. I just kept wearing the band until I felt good with where they were. I cut my binder down to a smaller strap and just wore it low on the incision area.after about 3 1/2 weeks. I went back to carrying mail at the 5 week mark and felt great! Went right back in to full duty. I still wore my binder strap at work for a while as I felt better with it there. I still wear it to work in but otherwise any other time I don't. My scar is good and low. I have a new bikini and the scar can not be seen at all. I will have the hubs take a few picks and get them on here soon.
I hope everyone else has had or will have as good as a procedure and recovery as I did. I am so glad I did it!!
