Extended Tt, MR, and Lipo of Flanks - Salem, OR

Hi Ladies! I'm a 31 year old mother of 3 - three year old twin girls and a one year old boy. The twin pregnancy left me looking like I am 6 months pregnant b/c of the stretched out muscles....plus I have a lot of extra skin. I'm excited about my upcoming surgery in just a few days.

My doctor seems really fabulous. I feel super comfortable with him. I did interview a few others first, but knew right away that I found the right one when I met Dr. Leonard. My husband is super supportive - he knows I hate looking preggo. I would like to lose 5-10 lbs after, but I am not overweight. Coiuldn't decide on 'fixing' my boobies, so we figured it wasn't the right time. We'll see how I feel after the tt. My inner thighs could really use some lipo too...but I'll give it a year of running first and see what happens.

I used to be critical of plastic surgery (before kids, as a cute and tiny 21 year old...those days are long gone haha), and now I feel like such a hypocrite. I am much more open minded now lol - and try to apply that to all aspects of life. I am only worried about not being there with my kids all the time (especially holding the baby, who is a total momma's boy), the drains and the nausea. I love reading everyone's stories - they are truly encouraging and inspirational during this time of so many mixed emotions! Natalie

I am now 4.weeks post op. A brief look back:
I went home the day after surgery. Made it up the stairs and into the recliner. I slept in the recliner for almost 2 weeks. I had drains in for 12 days. One was not painful when removed, the other was - but only because the opening was already irritated. I bever bruised or oozed from lipo. I am still sore and somewhar swollen. I have a few more days of wearing the compression garment...thank goodness!I am really happy with the results - just waiting to see how my belly button turns out. Its a bit bigger than I expected (I did not ask for a small one or anything, and I may have some scar tissue that sticks out a bit. I will ask at my next appt - but I think it is still too early to tell. Overall, very happy. Will try to post some pics soon!

7 weeks po: Still very happy - finally the swelling from lipo is down, but the areas are still sore. Still pretty swollen in the front all over the abdomen. Scar looks great - very low and very thin. My energy levels are nearly back to normal. Would do this again in a heartbeat!!

No sure why pictures are so small and blurry.....

no sure why pictures are so small and blurry...will try to get new ones when I get the chance
