I am newly divorced and 40 with 3 children, ages 19, 13 and 5. My weight has always fluctuated but about 8 years ago i started gaining and didn't stop until 289 pounds. I had vertical gastric sleeve on 7/31/12 and have lost 115 pounds to date. Lots of skin left after the weight loss. I already had a breast reduction in december 2012 and now on august 8th i am having a tummy tuck, lipo and implants. I have decided to go with silicone implants but i can not make a decision on moderate plus or high profile? any one have any comments on this?

I will write more later. its getting late.

I am leaving for the Keys on August 1, return home on August 7th and my Mommy Make Over is schedule for Thursday 8/8 at 8am. I am getting so excited, but nervous at the same time. I have already had my post op visit, blood work, ekg and i am cleared for surgery.

I had a really hard time deciding on implant size and the profile, so i trusted my PS and let him decide what would look and fit best on me. He choose a 650cc Silicone high profile implant. So on the 8th i will have a tummy tuck with lipo, lipo on hips and flanks, lipo of the chin with muscle tightening, small revision of breast lift (removing some extra skin from under my armpit/side boob) and breast implants. Hope thats not too much and that the recovery is not as bad as i am afraid its going to be. Anyone had this much work done at the same time? How was recovery? Any suggestions for me?
