Hey everyone!

I am a mother of 2 beautiful kids! I have been considering a MM for about 5 years now. I had bugged and bugged my husband for years about having it done, oddly enough it took one lunch hour with a business friend to change his mind!! He at that point called me to tell me to book it! My surgery is in less then a week eeeeekkkkkk so excited and a bit nervous.

15/092012

Today I am total ``scrambled`` brains!! I have 5 days left till my surgery and I feel like I am going crazy lol!! My kids are at a friends house so the house seems so quiet, this gives me more time to obsess over my upcoming surgery. Wow I wish I could just click my heals together and it would be Thursday!! I talked to my nurse yesterday and I am so happy!!! I will only be at the hospital for 30min before surgery, mine is the first surgery of the day!!

I am going to upload some photos once the surgery is complete. I will put some before and after photos up. Is it strange that I want a few pics taken during the surgery??

Anyways hope you all have a great day, I am going to go clean up the house some more, lol it is almost like I am nesting like when I had my beautiful kiddies.
Hello there, mine is also on 9/20 :) it still seem unreal to me that I'm really going thru with this. I just keep imagining that it will be like when I had my wisdom teeth out and was under GA, i just closed my eyes and it feels like seconds I woke up. I hope this is the same...I better WAKE UP! Good luck and can't wait to go thru this together with the rest of the ladies here.

Yay for whatever his business friend said to change his mind! I hope you'll keep us posted throughout your journey. Have you seen this list of supplies to get for your recovery?

I thank the lord every day for that business lunch!! My poor hubby just looked at me and said that right now talking to me is like talking to a wall. I cant focus at all.
I will take a look at that list thank you :).

I'm getting full TT, BL/BA with 450 cc, PS said I don't need lipo which is fine by me, I just want a flat tummy and stretch marks to be gone or less visible. I'm not staying the night, coming home same day...I don't mind, I have a high pain tolerance so well see how it goes. Can't wait to do this already!

Thats awesome. I am not staying the night either. I cant wait to see my flat tummy and perky boobies, without raising my hands to the ceilings lol.

WooooHooooo 3 days to go!!! I am in full blown nesting mode lol, I have been cooking up a storm today!! My husband and kids should not have to worry about much! I have also got to the point where I can go from 0 to psycho in under 60 seconds and it really sucks. Yesterday I was having break downs and freaking out over the house being suck a mess. My husband is away a lot on business and used to staying in a hotel room in which he has a maid, I think he has honestly forgot how to throw things away, put his dishes in the dish washer and clothes go in the hamper not the floor lol. See there is the PSYCHO in under 60 coming out.....lol

I have for a long time joked about my tummy looking like Freddy Krueger;'s face, It will be so nice to now have a tummy that looks like it is smiling and flat. Oh can these 3 days just be over with???

Have a great Monday ladies
Thank you city mom. 3 more days to go.

2 more sleeps!!! I sat up last night and started thinking the worst or the worst outcomes, grrrrrr I hate getting nervous. I am so thankful that I have such amazing friends. Today one of my friends assured that everything was going to be fine (she said "listen there is nothing taking you down, your a fighter" xoxo so nice to hear) For the first time in a very long time I had a phone conversation with a friend and talked for about an hour about things that we are both going through, I honestly forgot how nice it is to talk on the phone rather then just text.

Today I went out and got the last of the things that I needed, including my raised toilet seat and new bedding ( I have an odd obsession with bedding, my bestie always teases me about how often I buy bedding). Tonight we are going to the kids school and meeting the teacher and having pizza (last time ill be having that for a while lol). I am really looking forward to the night with my kiddies and fur babies (2 big big dogs)

OMG and of course this week of all weeks I get my period. So that will be interesting during recovery. However maybe that explains the reason I was feeling so crazy a few days ago....hmmmm

Any ways hope you all have a great night
xoxo
Good luck!! Enjoy your night with your dogs. My beloved saint bernard had to stay outside for a week so she wouldnt run me over!!!

I hope you sleep well, I had a late night coffee so I am wound up lol. I will see you on the flat side girl! Everything will be fine we are women and we are fighters!!! Xoxo

Hey everyone! Today is day 3 PO and I am feeling great!! I have not had any pain killers today and I am walking almost straight. I have been meaning to get on here for a few days to update but was a little sleepy. Today I woke up and felt great, I slept all night only waking once to go to the bathroom.

My surgery went great, I was able to look at my tummy and perky teenager boobies 1 day post op. When I saw it I cried and almost everytime I look at my tummy I cry. I have waited so long and been so unhappy ( took over so many parts of my life, including my sex life. Sorry tmi) now I look down and my tummy is beautiful!! haha I can finally see my va-j-j again lol!
The good Dr took the skin off from just above my belly button and down. He has given me a nice low scar that will be easy to hide with a bikiki!! Oh and I love my new belly button, thinking once it heals ill go get it pierced!!!

Well that's all for now but I will update soon xoxo!
Hey Miss Pink Marshmallow! How are you? I cried when I saw my great dane (prob cause of the drugs and because she is my big baby) then I saw my bully and he was so funny. They have been awesome and just lay by my bedside. My dane does put her head on my chest but is very delicate with me. They are so smart. I am feeling great today.

Today is 5 days post op and I am feeling pretty great! I went to see me PS today and everything is looking great. My drain will come out on Thursday so excited for that. It was also just night to get out of the house, my DH and I got groceries while we were out so that was nice not to just rush back home. I also had 2 dear Friends come to visit me this evening which was so nice. My one girl friend pained my toes for me (as she does every 2 weeks, she is amazing at it) she also did my daughters and moms while she was here! My daughter loved it, it was a surprise for her for helping me so much while I have been recovering.
I will say this I have found out that sneezing sucks, it felt like my tummy was ripping open. Aside from the sneeze, a cough or laughing the healing process has been great so far.
5days left for me i will be with u all prayers i just prayer i dont get dog ears lol and look good no more belly

1 week post op!! So excited that I got that drain out today although it felt like a snake i moving out out of my body. I cant believe the difference in my body in just one week. I have slept through the night for the last 2 nights and that felt great. The most annoying thing is how itchy it is where I had lipo, its driving me bonkers. I just cant wait to go shopping and by some cute new clothes. I have to keep it short tonight feeling a bit sleepy and think I over did it a bit today!! I drove for the first time in a week and it scared the shit out of me. Anyways good night everyone
I just showed my hubby your pics and he said that your tummy is how he pictures mine looking afterwards! I also tried on the same bra you got and loved it, but thought it cost to much and was going to look at walmart but now I'm thinking I just might go back for it. It was super comfortable.
Reply
Hey hun, I can't wait to see your pics after. It is so worth it, I'm so glad I did it. I would get another one of these bras in a second. They are amazing and comfortable. I love that it is a zipper front, made getting dressed so easy.

I bought the under armour bra your wearing! I got the large and it is so tight... not sure if it will fit after my surgery or not. :(

I have been trying to make time to update my reviews and I have just been so busy. I am feeling great at 3 week PO. I am so so happy I had my MM, it has made me so much more comfortable in my own skin. It is truly an empowering experience. I looked through my photos tonight and I cant believe the changes my body has gone through. I think the next 3 weeks may kill me cause I want to get back to the gym so bad.

I do find that as happy as I am with having my MM I am also very grouchy this last week, maybe cause it has been so busy at work for my husband and I. I feel like I am over doing it an that he gets annoyed when I ask him to do things. I came home tonight and he had the kitchen a total mess and I could have totally blown up. I am not liking this bitchy feeling I have been having and I hate not being able to do everything on my own like I am used to. Sorry for venting and sounding like a crazy woman.

I have updated my pics tonight and I am now excited to see what I will look like a week from now, I have found that the scale can be the enemy, it is frustrating not seeing the lbs go down. 1 thing I wish I would have done before my surgery was do measurements of my body and keep track of my progress.

any ways I hope your all feeling great and healing wonderful
You look great! I agree that it's an empowering experience. Glad you're doing well. Happy to know your hole healed!

Almost 2 years po

Awesome progress! One question: With the more fit you've become, have you noticed any breast sagging like you've lost more fat from breasts or do they seem firm as ever? I am 9 days PO and look a lot like your shape... I plan to really tighten up and get back into lifting weights when I'm cleared...and I don't want droopy boobs :)
Reply
I am not totally happy with my implants the left side has folded. I have not been happy with them since a couple month tbs post op. I want to have them re done. I don't think they have become droopy since weight loss I just think I should have maybe gone one size bigger to give the desired firmness.
Reply
Thanks for the insight! I really think mine are too small. I told my ps to make them the size I already have but firm and high....they are firm and high....just seems smaller :( I wonder if they can add more saline, or does it require all new implants?

Dr Anil Duggal

I had a few other friends go to Bluewater and spoke so highly of that clinic, it seemed like a no brainer to me. I had also seen the beautiful work they did.
