TT MR Lipo scheduled 5/30/12

I'm a 26yr old mother of 2, ages 10yrs (yes, I had him very young) & 7mos. My hubby is very supportive and I'm so grateful for that. And although he's as supportive and wonderful as he is, I'm embarrassed being around him naked. I currently weigh 144 lbs but my ideal weight is120 - I'm a short one, measuring in at only 5 feet flat! I've always dreamed of getting the TT done ever since my 10 year old came into my world. My belly is wrinkly and saggy, I have muscle loss and lots of stretch marks. I consulted with 3 physicians and my last consult is April 17th. My gut is set on the doctor I'll be seeing on 4/17 (no pun intended, ha!) because of his credentials and extensive training & experience with TT's. Not to mention his outstanding reviews all over the net. Anyway, once I meet with him I'll be able to make my final decision - then I'll be booking the surgery date for the last week of May. I'd love to network with anyone out here that can offer advice and support throughout my scary, but amazing, journey! Here are some before pictures of me. I will keep updating this post as I move along.

I find myself thinking about this surgery every day. In fact, the last few nights I've been actually having weird dreams about it. I can't wait to get this last consult out of the way so I can finally come to a sound decision and book the surgery. Here's to bikinis!

So, I'm curious. To any readers out here, what size were you in pants pre tummy tuck, then after TT?

Lost about 5 lbs within these last 2 weeks, I'm 139 now. Hoping to lose 14 more lbs before surgery. I'm currently a size 7-8 in jeans and my goal is to fit into a 3-4. I posted new before pics of me fully clothed. I'm telling ya, my clothes hide so much flab and skin, it's not even funny! Third consult is on April 17th and then I'll make my final decision on Dr. and book the surgery for the last week in May. Can't wait!

I consulted with the third PS today and ended up making my decision. He took his time with me, showed me exactly where the incision will be placed, discussed my concerns (want BB to look as natural as possible, and scar placed as low as possible). When I removed my gown so he could take a look, he asked if I was athletic or did any gymnastics because my legs were very defined - I thought "SCORE"!!! At least something stayed in tact after my babies ;-) My hubbs wasn't able to leave work to be present during today's consult, and he felt bad because he knew how important it was for me, but hey I'm a big girl and regardless, as soon as the PS left the room I felt confident that I was making the right decision. Not only that but one of the ladies that works at the office had a TT done with him and she was nice enough to provide an in-person reference and also show me her results. He places drains and requires an overnight stay. His practice is huge, looks like a mini mansion, and they have the same licensing standards as hospitals so my overnight stay will be right there in his facility. Pre op appt is set for 5/14 and surgery is scheduled 5/30. Hubbs will be present for both. I'm so excited I can barely wait! Oh yea, and the garment I will be wearing will support my legs?? Apparently for better circulation and reduction of possible blood clots.. is this standard?

Oh yea, forgot to mention, not that anyone really cares but me haha, but I weighed myself this morning and I'm 2 lbs lighter than last week. Down to 137 and my goal is to lose another 12 lbs before surgery.
