$16,000 with out a lift $18000 with the lift:
I am having the MM done to reverse the effects of bearing children, depression and weight loss.
I reached 215 pounds, 40EE, at 5'3 27 years old this is not a good look lol
Breast feeding and carrying 2 children caused sagging in breast and stomach skin along with stretch marks and the weight loss made this problem worse. I am now a deflated 34C at 145pounds, I lost 60 pounds this year and Im ready to reward myself for my physical and mental achievments.
Here is where I need realself.com's help! I am going in for a MM consisting of a BA (lift recommended), TT with lipo,lipo of chin, and Fat transfer to the butt.
My concerns are for the Breast Lift , I really do not want to get this done , I have looked at alot of women with saggin about my stage and I like the way there BA have turned out really natural looking. I am aware that I will need to go a bit big to fill them up and that they will sag faster , at this stage I would rather just get BA and deal with the lift later in life, now I just need to get this approved by my doctor.

Ugggh everyday I go back and forth on what to have done, should I get ??? Some days I think no lift, then I think just do it your boobs are shot,, then I think maybe just the lift no implants , then I think when will I get a chance to do this again if I didn't like just the lift , then I think maybe I Gould get some lipo on my upper back and ribs , I just want to get it over with so I can move on lol ,, it's really an emotional rollercoaster , along with loosing weight and thinking maybe I shouldn't loose more weight if I'm gonna get bbl that's stupid cause I should keep trying to reach my goal of 130 , and my stupid period makes me emotiional and grouchy on top of hungry and grouchy on top of being alone raising two small children , trying to plan a major surgery ect ect ,,,, I'm so thankful to have this to post to , I can't talk about this barley anyone and it's a relief to be able to vent Just like this without being judged , thank u ladiesim gonna post my b4 pix tomorrow (if I get a min to get on laptop) so u guys can see how sad my boobs really are lol , ok I feel better going to bed hungry now :)

So yesterday was a little bit of a let down :( had troubles with the loan so it sets me back 3,000$ ,,,, I'm not getting discouraged tho I'm staying positive and working out ! So it will take 3 months to save the rest if I can't get a cc to cover it , I'm keeping my fingers crossed I've worked hard and been a good wife and mommy so Santa will bring my present lol
I'm glad all u ladies who have gone threw surgery are healing ok and I'm sorry for those woth minor set backs , you'll be healed In no time and like pregnancy and child birth it will be worth all the trouble :)

This last week as been unbelievable stressful =(...
- 30 Jun 2011
Honestly Im so ready for surgery I have been so stressed latley and I think I would prefer to be in pain just to get a break from my responsibilities as a single mother for a week , that sounds bad saying it out loud but my oldest daughter as been having issues since her dad and I separated in Jan. ,,,We are civil and he is actually paying for this surgery, but its still been a really rough year.
Cant believe I only have 5 days left OMG! lol I...

Hey ladies I'm post op day 5 feeling great...
- 23 Jul 2011
Went to doc 6:30 am talked to anesthiologist e explained he would put iv and leg compressions to prevent blood clots and they would start surgery from there ,,,, then doc came in and drew all over me ,, then I was sent back went under 9 1/2 hr later I was woke up and they said I was all done :) I stayed on the bed drugged out of my mind while I listened to everyone talk and they asked me if I was in any pain I said my ankle hurt and that was it ,,,, my ankle was swollen from being in the compression garment for so long other then that my face was barley sore from lipo , stomach had a morphine pain pump drip installed so no pain there and breast were shot up with marcaine? (numb meds) so I didnt feel them one bit ,,,,,, my parents took me to hotel where I slept the rest of the day I had a catheter and 4 drains ,,, 2 in stomach and 1 in each boob ,,,,
Day 1 post op:
Started to wake up more but i still slept most day and my mom stayed in my room 24/7 we went to the doctor and he just looked to make sure everything it was quick visit and then we went back to hotel threw out the day my mom drained and recorded the fluid ounces my drains and catheter had incase of illness orrurance the doctors would need to know and dad did a breathing excersize to help clear my lungs ,, only eventful thing was when I had a cough attack ,, the worst feeling in the world! Lol ur throat is really mucusy from having breathing tubes in and it causes an itchy throat, cepacol cough drops one of the most important things to keep right next to u at all times! That and water ,,,,
Day 2 post op:
Stayed in hotel all day until 1pm went back to The doctor to have my drains removed ,,, weird weird feeling I had my mom video record this I will post it as soon as I get to a computer ,,,, after this doc apt I went back to hotel to sleep ,,, later that evening I took my first shower very slowly and was afraid to let the water run on me but it was fine didn't hurt to have water hit me at all,,,, my mom and I used baby shampoo to wash my armpits and privates and that's all I could take I had to get out my back was hurting from holding myself up hunched over if that makes sense lol that day I had a little cup of low sodium organic broth and some unsalted top saltine crackers threw out the day ,,, slept the rest of the day only getting up to pee wish is rough cause u have to take off ur garments and band (which really is your best friend after surgery without it u feel like ur stomach could fall out ) definitely try to ask for a crotchless garment If available ,,, u also wear this sports bra type thing and a band above ur boobs to help implants settle ,,, day 2 prob the worst day of all the meds are starting ti wear off and ur more active but push threw this day with ambien and pain pills and day 3 is the road to no more pain
Day 3 post op:
Felt so much better this day still very sore in tummy but felt like a normal person starting to heal ,,, went shopping in wheel chair with my mom and ate more food like watermelon and banana more low sodium chicken broth and some fruit,,, today I took some milk of magnesia so I didn't get constipated I just pooped water gross sorry , only took 2oz start with that I no results take another 2oz in a few hours ,,,,my mom also made me laugh this day and it hurt so bad I fell to my knees I cried then fell asleep from exaughstion and when I woke up my mom was still ery upset from causing me pain via laughter :( poor mom she is so sweet and felt so guilty for something that was totally out of her control ,,, it has to be rough not being able to laugh all week in fear ur gonna make u kid laugh and be in pain , especially when I probably made the craziest faces all drugged up ,,,oh also this day I didn't take pain meds just tylenol the pain meds made me feel crazy high so I just decided no to take it and I was fine
Day 4 post op:
I stayed home walked around tons didn't want to sit down cause I felt like that is all I had been doing I sat down after my shower cause it wore me out and then I had doc apt in the evening that went great doc said I was in the 1% of people who heal this well and are standing up straight after 4 days ,, my breast are already healing back togather and scar looks so straight and thin very impressed with my body I will post pics and video of this day as soon as I get to computer ,,, after we went out to eat sushi I just had salad and Cali roll really I just wanted to treat my parents for all thier hard work ,,, slept from there ,,one thing the ambien gives me scary freaky dreams so I stoped taking those on post op day 3
Day 5 post op :
What a great feeling to wake up and feel good , I got up made my mom & dad breakfast , my mom slept on till 8:30 that's late for her and then I cleaned up the house and washed the sheets and felt great all day , wasn't even that bugged about going to the bathroom today , my time has improved (but whose racing) lol ,,,, I stayed in the shower forever today I started to feel flustered from the hot water so I got out a lil b4 I wad ready but other then that I actualy washed my incisions and breast with out being scared just lil slow :) my aunts came over to visit and my mom and them got drunk lol it was fun then at 5 we packed up the car to drive my long trip home 5 1/2 hrs back to the mountains :) been good drive I just brought lots of pillows and laid with my back against one side of the door and feet at other ,,, we stopped at in n out and had protien style burgers no fries or soda too much sodium ,,, that's my day so far touch bases tomorrow I will post my pics ,, hope all u ladies are feeling good and pushing threw lots of love and healing energy to u gals :)

- 2 Aug 2011
Hi ladies its been a while, just thought I would check in. Im back at life with my two kids so its been busy. I would say at this stage the hardest part is not being able to bend down with out it being awkward lol and not being able to do the pulling and lifting with my 2 year old. she knows i cant lift her and that I have "owies" but I just want to pick her up and carry her to bed or hold her
=( my 5 year old has been such a great help! she is earning lots of marbles = money for being so helpful. I cant wait till normal is all the way here. Waiting for boobs to drop and belly button to heal, Im trying my hardest not to over analize anything at this stage but its hard =)
here are some pix i have been meaning to put up thanks for listening
Oh and I tried on every single peice of clothing I...

2wks 2days po please put your negative attitude...
- 3 Aug 2011
please put your negative attitude blockers up b4 reading this :
Ohhhhhh what a day backs killing me foot is swollen very emotional and disappointed in myself for the way I have been eating ,,,, did a lot and my kids are great but it's hard to do when ur uncomfortable and cant handle a 2 yr old like u normally can .,,.., she crys And all I cam do is give her a leg to hug and rub her back ,,, I miss her and she is right next to me ,,,,, my 5 year old is way to responsible for her age it makes me sad to rely on her so much and she does it so willingly ,,, she helped me put the dishes away vacuum the rug and pick up toys of the ground and washes her sister in bath she as earned almost a bowl full of marbles this week more then ever lol momma is gonna have to break bread this week , eAch marble is worth 5 cents usually she earns 1.50 week I bet she gets to 5$ this week I'll let u know lol
I just feel shitty today I didn't shower I don't wanna clean my belly button I hate the way I have been eating and I'm exaughsted and I don't do much ,,,, I did more then usual today so I know it has a lot to do with it , I walked hour 1/2 hr at time at 2 yr old pace wich is faster then me lol and I packed up my bro room cause he is on a fire and I feel bad he has been working so much and I clEaned up the house not much but man I can tell u after bathing feeding brushing clothing cleaning up after these lil ones all day when 7 (bed time) comes I go straight tO my bed and lay down cause I am done! I feel better just being able to vent this all out stupid negative attitude needs to be released sorry I hope I don't project it onto u guys
I think tonight I will set a schedule (allowance) of things I can/handle in one day , also find the will power to stop poisoning my body with crap food (can u believe I actually craved a ciggerette today ?!?! I havnt smoked in a year that's how I know it's was a tough one ,,all these emotions came about 5 o'clock and the swelling started at 3 so all the day wasn't bad just the last few hours I wanted to cry buy I don have a reason lol well I feel better and so those are my goals for tomorrow ladies thank u for the support
Hello ladies, i just wanted to give an update...

My Doctor: George Commons, MD
post op: I love this doctor and his team, five stars all around !!!! pre op: So far I would reccomend this doctor he stayed with me in a consultation for 2hrs he was beyond thuro in answering my questions, he stayed threw his lunch because I ran late coming from out of town 400 miles away , he was very busy that day and still took care of me. His secratary is very helpful in getting information from the doctor to answer my questions as I come up with them since the consult. So from this stage I would expect to give Dr C full 5 stars for his services if I didnt I wouldnt have picked him out of all the surgeons I have met with , also he has been doing this for 25+ years and is board certified. ,,, Went in for pre op today , I just love dr commons he is the sweetest. once again he spent a great amount of time with me and answered all my questions and concerns , one major thing I like is he doesnt just do the TT and breast work he makes sure it all fits together even if he has to do a little extra work its all included.I feel so close to him and I can guarantee that I will be dealing with him till the day I stop having cosmetic surgery. I will post again on this after surgery It is now 1 week after surgery and I love my doctor even more then when I picked him from the begining , he did a great job and not only that he is such a sweet man and very smart i just cant tell you how great he is enough.
