I am 36 years old. 5'4" 148lbs. Hated my thighs so long I can't remember when it started. I finally decided to get something done about it. I went in March to talk to a Doctor about TT and Lipo of inner and outer thighs and also got an est. on BA. At first I was just going to do the Lipo and TT as I have some boobs but they just are not the same after I had my son 6 yrs ago. C-section. I have inverted nipples and so I only breast feed a month before the pain got to much for me. I was a B cup before him but am now bouncing between a B and C but they are very deflated. With a bra they look ok so I was very torn on weather or not to have the BA done. The more I thought about it and talked to my mom, who had hers done a year ago, and two other ladies my age I have decide I am going to go for it. I don't want to regret later not doing it. It was just hard for me to justify doing something that only my husband and I would see. How weird that I had no issues with getting rid of that darn flabby belly but the boobs just seem like an extravigance. go figure.
I am so happy I found this site and am looking forward to posting my progress. I go on monday for another consultation and to decide the cc of my BA! I have a list of questions I plan to take with me.
Surgery is June 6th. The first Monday after school gets out. I wanted to get it all done early in my summer break so I could recover and still have some fun in the summer before going back to work.
Added some before pictures. I went through IVF to...

Well, I will post more after.
Oh, I have to say I was really starting to doubt my choice to do this and was getting pretty nervious but then went to my consultation on Thursday and just was put at ease. Besides the usual fears, I am feeling very good about my choice to do this. :)
Day of surgery went very well. I had to stay in...

Day 2 I slept a lot. Feel really grogy. I was hoping to read a book but the darn words will not stay still. I ended up taking some of the nausea pills as I threw up at one point. Can you say PAINFULL! I have not been eating too much at this point. Just cracker and water. I have started itching really bad and so called my ps office and they have me trying a different medication for pain as they think that I am having a reaction to the one I was on.
Day 3- I have slept most of the day today. I walk very hunched over when I need to use the bathroom and walk around to keep the blood flowing to my legs etc. I have only taken one pain pill each 4 hours today and while I have pain still it is not horrable. I also have been a little dizzy when I get up so my mom been following me around. She has been a huge help. I also have asked myself what was I thinking to do this? I know it is just a faze and will soon go away. I hope. :) I will update my pictures when I get home. Still in a hotel in Reno. My follow up will be on Friday.
Well, I am just a little over a week out. Had my...

Oh, one gross thing... on the end of my TT insion it is like a green/yellow seapage? I am going to call the office tomorrow to see if that is normal.. It just looks bad. We will see if I need to be driven in the 3 hrs to be checked out. On the upside at least they could take out the drains and I would not have to wait another week!
Well I guess the yellow sepage is ok as long as I...

I got the drains out last wedensday and what a relief. I started walking better and just could move around much better. Doc looked me over and said I looked great. (I think they have to say that.) He did tell me I could wear whatever I felt was comfortable so I have been wearing my compression stuff at night and just the ace wrap that was on my boobs po around my stomach. So much cooler while we were camping.
Feeling better but still get tired and sore fairly easily. I am updating with some 3weeks post pictures. I seem to have more swelling now then a week ago but that just could be from doing too much this last week? I have been sleeping better now that I don't have to sleep on my back!
Just needed to add this funny story from about a...

As for my weight, I am still a little heavier then what I started out as but with all the workouts I have been doing I am in better shape then before I had my son six years ago. I love my new body and am doing my best to keep it looking hot. Even if I cheated and ate some halloween candy. :)
Doc Hall was very nice and answered my questions when I went to the consultaion with him. The only down side is that was the only time I saw him until the morning of my surgery. If you want hand holding and to see your doc more often I would say go to someone else or make sure you let the staff know you want to see him again for a follow up consoltaion. I thought he would be there to help me choose my implants but it was left up to my husband and I. There was just a misunderstanding as I just assumed he would be there and he was not. Over all I think he did a good job.
