I can't wait for my surgery I'm dying with anticipation. I've had two kids I gained 100 pounds with my first and never lost it then 5 years later I had my second and gained 37 pounds thankfully I lost that within 2 weeks after birth. And there I was 100 pounds over weight weighing 277 pounds at 5'11" so I changed my life I'm down 70 pounds now and still loosing. I have so much extra skin it's awful. So I'm so excited and anxious and I just can't wait !! Any advice?
Im having tt in feb and i feel nervous, scared, excited and some times a litlle overwhelmed and i still have 10'weeks to go. I come on here and read reviews picking up hints and tips along the way. and checking out before and after pics. I always feel better after.

Full front

Wow looks so much better in person lol

37 days left... It's killing me!!!

So in the morning I'm going to pay in full. I'm not sure weather to cry from pure happiness or dance a jig and well my jiggle will dance for me a min or to after that lol...
I'm just so anxious and excited it's all I can think about. Any advice on what supplies I'll be needing.
Im pretty sure the clock has stopped!!

32days left... Back from our cruise...

So we just got back from a 4 day disney cruise and let me tell you... Buffet heaven... As soon as I got him I jumped on the scale and bam!!! Only gained 4 pounds and it was at the end of the day so I got on again this morning and I'm only up 1 pound... So now I have 32 days of clean eating and detox and some heavy ass kicking in the gym department. Not to mention I have a crap ton to do to prepare for surgery... Deep clean the house make chore charts cook and freeze dinners for my family and the list just keeps going.... Any adive on pre planning and prepping before surgery?
Nice work on the weight loss! I lost significant weight as well, over the course of a few years, (no kids though!) and from looking at your pictures, our stomach issues look very similar, so I feel your pain! My surgery is coming up in 9 days, so I'm just a few weeks ahead of you! I'm praying that hopefully I'll have some good news to report in my story after surgery to give you more to look forward to with the healing process ;) Good luck!

Congrats on your weight loss and I'm super jealous your is so close lol. I can't wait to see your results and hear all about it. I wish you a speedy recovery.

Good luck on your big day!! Congrats on your weight loss! I lost big weight too and I had no idea I could have results like this! I just wanted the hanging mess to be gone, but I got so much more! Looking forward to seeing your new belly :) Congrats again!!

7 days until my pre opp

I got the call this morning to confirm my appointment and I almost cried... I'm so happy and thankful that it's finally happening.
With that said any pre prep advice? As in making things easier for my husband and the kids.

Pre opp in the morning..

I'm so so so excited but worried there is 23 days between my pre opp and my surgery.
I'm sure it will all work out. Any suggestions on things to ask the PS at the ore opp?
Awesome weight loss! Can't wait to follow your progress! I had an "all around the world" make over too' I'm 6 days post. Recovery is tough, hardest part is not being able to do much even when you feel like you can. You will tire very easily. The shower wore me out this morning lol! Good luck and keep posting.
Reply
I'm so very happy you commented. It's been hard to find others having or that have had this done. How is the pain if you don't mind me asking? Also I wish you a healthy safe recovery and I will deff keep posting and follow your progress as well.

I'm doing good! I had TT, Lipo to tummy, flanks, back, arms and inner thighs and fat transfer to butt and outer thighs. The TT is the most pain. I'm bruised from Lipo and it is hard to lift my arms. My whole body is sore like I had a really hard workout but overall the TT pain prevails over the rest. Each day gets better though. First two days post I slept and only got up to pee.

Pre op was today!!

It was so overwhelming but exciting... Sadly I have 23 days until my surgery :(
Also I found out I will have to drains and none for my breast lift which makes me happy and then I found out I'll have my drains for 2 weeks :(
I think my husband thinks I've lost my mind I'm so excited and anxious to have this done and put my self through so much pain. I will sit here and wait until the big day...
Lol! Your as sane and the rest of us pre tt! I can't wait to see your results! Good luck & enjoy the excitement!

Oh you definitely haven't lost your mind. You have worked so hard you deserve to rid yourself of the skin. It won't be much longer!

What have y'all used or heard of using to help with bruising ?

With only 20 more days until the big day my mind is going crazy... Is there anything I can purchase or make or do to help ease some pain and bruising and things like that?
They have this gel called Arnica and you can use that for bruising and swelling. They also have pills. Check on amazon and eBay. Good Luck!

Not worried about the pain?

So I started this post to write about how excited I was that when I wake up I will only have 6 days left until my surgery... Then it hits me... I'm not fearful and I have and haven't thought about pain??? Normal?
I have in the sense that I know it's going to hurt like hell but I haven't in the way that I have nothing to compare it to so I'll just wait and deal with it as it comes... I'm kinda numb to it right now? Is this normal?
Either way I'm super excited and anxious sigh ... And let the roller coaster begin...
Well mis till waiting in line lol 6 more days until I hope on that bad boy!
I had a tummy tuck and breat aug with Dr Dascombe in November and I'm loving my results. He does amazing work

My nerves are shot!

I'm going crazy on the inside right now... I'm just now starting to get really nervous and almost reconsidering... I'm not sure what it is... This will be my very first surgery and I have no clue what to expect...
I'm going nuts trying to get everything in order and making sure my husband don't have to worry about much... We have a blended family with 4 children 18, 9, 5, 14months so his hands will be full... Ugh lord please watch over our family !

Ok venting is over :)
Hi Woodskris, I am getting my tummy tuck on Jan. 10. I live just up the road in SC. I have had strange dreams all weekend and keep asking myself if I am doing the right thing. I am so excited one minute and terrified the next. So glad I found someone going through this on the same day! Good luck!

I'm right there with you... I just want it done and over with so I can focus on getting better rather than all the what ifs and prep and planning and stalking the before and after pics lol... Just chop off this thing already lol :) I'm glad you commented mid eff going to be looking for your updates!

Here we go! As my kids would say, 4 more sleeps! Although, I don't think I will be sleeping much on Thursday night. After I messaged you last night I noticed that my underwear kept rolling down under my belly. LOL I am back in the game, now. Excited today and going for it!

2 days and a wake up... aaaahhhhhhh

So I basically had a nervous break down yesterday almost called and canceled my surgery... Ugh but thankfully they are amazing and get this all the time so they said to sleep on it and thankfully I did because I still want to go through with it all I'm just super stressed I guess I'm a control freak and it's hard for me to let go lol... With that being said the hospital bed is being delivered in the morning and I'll finally be able to set up all of my supplies and pack my hospital bag... Ugh I'm freaking out still lol
I think you sound exactly what i will be like when it's my turn .... It's scary stuff !!!! I am kinda like that now and i am not planning to het it done until the summer :/ I havent booked yet and can still swing between "lets get the garden done instead" to "no ... I can do this thing" lol !!! You will be fine and soon your stories and pictures will be inspiring people like me to bite the bullet and get it done ... Good luck hun, looking forward to your updates x xxx

Last night in my own bed.. Aaaaahhhh

My surgery is Friday at 9:30 am it's about 2 hours away so we will be staying in a hotel to marrow night.
The nurse called today to answer any questions I had left and gave me some more info. I had a huge surprise this evening my Doctor called me just to remind me to be calm and answer any questions I had. I thought that was a wonderful thing and it gave me some peace of mind. I'm excited scared worried and kind of in a daze like I can't believe this is happening to me. I washed with hibiclense this morning and this evening and put that nasty stuff in my nostrils lol...
Oh and the hospital bed came today it's lovely and I think it's going to be a life saver!
Omg i feel your nervousness. So excited for you, cant wait to see your after pics
Reply
Good luck! You're so close and sounds like you're all set ;) You will be so glad you have the hospital bed when you get home! I didn't have one, but I stayed at my parents' house and used their adjustable Temperpedic and it helped soooo much! I can't imagine my early recovery days without it!

Almost time! I'm doing the same thing as you, staying in a hotel close to the hospital. Not sure if I want to spend the whole night at the hospital. I hope I feel good enough to go home to the bed I've set up. Good luck :)

Ugh I'm hurting so bad right now I wanted to murder my husband he was so flipping slow with everything I had a game plan going in but now he messed it all up and it to what felt like hours I was upper dizzy and said I need to sit down... His jack ass said wait and ran down stairs to get a blue pad thing so I didn't get anything on the bed... Seriously ... Ugh I'm so happy that's all over I'm in so much pain I'm so sore and sleepy and I feel like giving up... Welp that's if from me to day. And here are my first totally naked pics...
You look awesome ! Happy healing !

Thank you ❤️

Sorry you are feeling so crummy! I know everyone says this, but the pain really does get better in just a few days- at least it did for me. The uncomfortable-ness is still there after for sure, but the real pain pain was over for me after about day 5. Though with you having the whole lower body lift and the lipo it may be a little longer. BUT you really look fantastic already! Truly!

I slipped off the couch !!!!!!

My 1st post opp appt was today, well while getting at 5:30 this morning it's was a 2 hour drive... I slipped down the couch I had some cotton spandex pant things on and we have a leather couch and well I slipped off the edge and then caught my self.. (Bad idea) thankfully there wasn't much damage my back muscles hurt and part of my incision stung like an sob but nothing to bad thank god... My doc wasn't there for this appt but I was aware of that before hand... Everything looks good and I'll be getting my drains out on the 22 if all goes well. I learned my implant massages and it hurt like hell... But doctors nurse saw my before and after pic and was shocked at the change... I guess no one realizes how bad it was until they see it side by side. I love them they are so sweet and nice and helpful! I keep telling myself it will get better but it seems like it gets worse everyday so we shall see... Happy healing everyone!
You look great! Congrats on the weight loss :) I lost 50 pounds since the birth of my kiddo and have lost 11 more since making my appointment back in November :)

1 weeks after surgery

I'm still in a shit ton of pain! Every day seems to get better and worse!!! My pain is still very strong but my ability to move is slowly getting better! Ok warning this gets graphic ...
So I had a BM the 2 day I was home... I though awesome I'm good to go... Well 3 days later lol around and I hadn't had another so I thought well maybe because I haven't eaten much.. Well today finally rolls around and still nothing I try and try and nothing... So I used a sapositories... It's there but I can't get it to come out and can't really push.... We'll holly hell literally 1 hour and 15 min later of being on the toilet I finally had a BM self assists with gloves it was awful I was crying and dying of embarrassment basically Ana t home enema I've never shared these things with my husband and now I was begging for help... Needless to say! Never again !!! I wish that in no one!!! Activia 3xs a day and I I'll make sure I have at least 1 per day. I don't wish that on my worst enemies! Well enough with the over sharing here's a bunch of pics from today
I agree, the bowel issue is the worst part of it! Hope others find your review and heed warning! Lol! At a week out you should be over the bm issue if you eat right. The anesthesia just seems to shut your GI down. And your pain should get better quickly. A week from now I'll bet your 80%. OTC pain killers worked well for me and won't constipate you. I love your results already!
Reply
Thank you and I agree please take this as a warning... But today I've been good as far as my BM thank goodness... I'm still in pain and I don't see it getting better any times soon :(
Reply
Your transformation is truly awesome! I'm so happy for you! Sorry to hear about your BM "blues". That is one of the worst parts of the surgery :( After my first couple of painful experiences in that department, I ended up eating an Activia every morning and I mixed Miralax into it and that really seemed to help. I did that for about a week or 10 days and took stool softeners every day during that time as well and then slowly weaned off of it and I was back to normal after about 2 weeks. Don't know if it works for everyone, but that helped get me through if you want to give it a shot ;) Good luck and happy healing!

Worried it's infected ...

I'm worried my belly button is in fetched thank god I have an appt with my doc on the 22... What do y'all think?
From the pic it looks normal. I'd just keep an eye on it and look for fever in it. Mine got awful crusty about a week post And it seemed to be irritated by my cg/spanx. Good luck, of course holler at your ps if Youre terribly concerned.

I did it all alone!

In a good way!!! Yesterday was a busy day for me! I made my own lunch woot woot and I took a shower by myself! Doesn't sound like much but I was exhausted! I also held my daughter... I know I'm not saposta but she is only 15 months and it was killing me! I sat a thick pillow on my lap and she sat ontop of that so no access to my incision or anything and she just sat there and laid on me and cuddled I almost cried I had missed her and that so much! Ugh it was a beautiful moment. I'm feeling pretty good today my left breast finally settled it's still a little high but it's going down. The lain is still there but I'm learning to deal with it! I only took a muscle relaxer in the morning and evening yesterday and a pain pill right before I got in the shower so I'm super happy about that! I'm going to see how long I can go without today! My belly button is looking better I even snapped my first pic of it ! Woot woot! Wish me luck for my endeavors today!

Two week check up

It went well he said everything is healing nicely... My drains aren't ready to come out they will come out next week and honestly I'm happy with that dicision I'd rather have that stuff out than in. He reassured my husband about my unstable emotions recently (I cry a lot) and even brought my consult before pictures in as a reminder of how hard I've worked and how far I've come and to not get depressed or over analyze my body to just hang in there. I love him and his staff they are amazing and just down right sweet! My breast look great and my belly button is healing nicely! I have no stitches on the out side on anything :) there all internal he said layers of stitches and the ones holding it closed are just under the skin so that was nice. Oh he also said my muscle separation was very bad and that he did a lot of work on my sides and back he spent less time on the front my sides were the worst and my back was second...crazy to think what was under there lol... Well happy healing everyone!

So I was scheduled to have my drains removed on Wednesday but due to "weather" they want to reschedule for Friday :( for some reason I feel that once my drains are out I will get better fast weather that's true or not I don't know but I just feel like there holding me back lol...it's day 17 and I'm still the hunch back ugh... Any ways on a brighter note I'm loving my boobs!
Holy cow, your "before" is as close to mine as I've ever seen on RS. I gained 130, lost 80 so far and still going. You're results give me SO MUCH hope it's not even funny. You look like you are 50 pounds lighter in your before and after, just from the surgery. Amazing! Oh and your boobies look awesome too :)

Yay congrats on your weight loss! I'm so happy to hear you say that... I looked and looked and looked on here and other places and I couldn't find anything that was close to my belly... So I got the balls and posted my stuff on here for someone else that was searching! You made my day! I'm taking a shower in the evening and I will post updated pics... Day 19 showers are still rough any who... Congrats on your weight loss and keep up the good work!

Day 20... Turning point

Hello my beautiful people! I'm thinking this is the turning point in my journey... I'm feeling much better I'm doing more and more everyday. I ditched the walker about 5 days ago by choice so I would stop using it as a "crutch" lol I'll be here all week :)
It helped I'm starting to use my abs again it's a little painful but not to much anyways I wanted to give a positive update for once. I'll post pictures later in the evening when I shower... Oh and one of my steri strips came off and I couldn't believe my eyes some of my incision was already healed over with skin... I was excited but totally creeped out.

Got my drains out.... Sweet mother of god that was weird! I'm happy they are out I don't feel so constricted. I went to SAMs club and walmart first outing in 21 days it was super nice. I'm feeling much better mis till pretty sore but I'm getting around a lot better. Next week is the big reveal... All my bandages come off!
Yay for leaving the house and love the new pics! You were able to hide the belly pretty well before, but it makes a huge difference. Do you even have to suck it in anymore? I feel like I've spent half my life sucking it in, I pretty much do it without even thinking now :/
Reply
I did hide it well lol I can't suck in yet it hurts way to bad and I agree it was second nature to suck it in before. It was so hard to find full body before pics.
Reply
I know what you mean...I have no pictures of me at my heaviest. I'm making sure to take some now as I'm losing weight (still need to lose about 50 before I'm ready for surgery) even though it depresses the heck out of me. Anyways, you don't even look like you need to suck it in, I guess the muscle tightening is sucking it in for you :D

Went shopping...

So I ventured out to the mall yesterday... I only made through one store I was so exhausted! I was so emotional to know I can shop at any store now! I'm now a size 14 jeans and I'm so greatful to go from a size 18-20 to a size 14 I couldn't be happier! I got fitted for a bra just to see my size and I'm a 38 D I'm very happy with that as well. I feel like a 40D fits better either way I'm happy! I'm feeling pretty good. I'm still in pain but it's manageable. I even went to dinner with my family last night! Any ways ladies I'll be posting pics after to marrows check up with the doc. I get all my steri strips off yay... Lol

Necrosis?

I'm flipping out!!! I had my steri strips removed yesterday and the nurse said it was just some slow healing and a scab. well I look at it this morning and what a horror I found. So I called and she told me it's just a scab and that was around 10 am. Now it's 9 pm and it's worse! I so worried! Opinions ladies?
I've gotta say….I thought my before and after photos were impressive (lost 115 pounds) but I think yours takes the cake! Look at you! You look great! I can't offer any advice or opinions about the incision under the breast, but from what I've seen and read…yes it does look infected…necrosis. Hopefully they can get you in soon to take a look? Gosh your circumferential TT turned out amazing. I sorta wish I had had that done…because I still have so many fat on my love handle area. Oh well. Best of luck to you! If you have any questions I'd be happy to help in any way that I can :)

That's very sweet of you and thank you for the kind words. I'm hoping to get in ASAP! :)

It does look somewhat worse. It may be just healing slowly ,but since it looks worse I would call and request to be seen by the PS.

I'm so depressed!

I can't believe this is happening to me. I did everything right I followed all directions. I just so upset! I'm hoping and praying that it doesn't spread and that the black part is just a scab. I'm so depressed I can't help but to cry! I'm always that one percent! FML

Saw the doc today

Well I went In today to see what was going on with this infection. Come to find out it's because of a certain kind of stitch he uses to keep the boobies nice and perky. I got some cream, antibiotics and cleaning instructions. I also had fluid removed from a seroma that developed on my lower back. It didn't hurt much. Oh and I had a spitting stitch removed thank goodness for that lol it was driving me nuts. Doc said it should heal it's self in a week or so. So until then lol...
Hey cutie, how's it going? Can't wait to hear/see how you're doing now. HUGS

6 week check up

Phew what a day... I went to see my ps today. Due to a previous infection and now some delayed healing. He said all looks well and it should be heal in about 3 weeks which is when my next appt is. So we shall see. I had 3 spitting Sri he's that needed removal one on my bob it was painless one on my right Breast a tiny pinch and then one on my left Brest holly hell that hurt. So I get home and around 7:00 this evening I look down and my bra is covered in blood! Apparently that stitch was deep! I was gushing blood. It has subsided for now but still pretty freaky! I'm healing well feeling back to normal for the most part. My husband can't stop looking at me he tells me how good I look and how beautiful I am at least 5 times a day! Not kidding. Anyways hope all is well happy healing everyone.

I meant to ask-what made you decide to go with the "around the world" tuck? And are you happy that you did? I'm just curious because my belly looks almost identical to your before, but I don't have much loose skin in back (I carried almost all of my weight right out front, ugh) so I'm wondering if I will end up needing a circumferancial tuck or if an extended TT will do the trick. I'm concerned about the scar obviously, but if that's what would give me results like yours I think it would be worth it!

I just wanna cry

When I think about all that has happened and all I've been through this past few months. I started my weight lose journey in August of 2013 and here I am March 2014. 7 months later I'm 82 pounds lighter and all that skin is gone! It feels so good to look in the mirror. Thank you all for all of your support and help and words of wisdom! It has meant the world to me.
As of now I'm back to normal my breast is healing nicely. Slow and steady but I can't complain.
My current problem now is my arms. I fit a large shirt but my arms are still saggy but I'm so terrified to have an arm lift because of the trauma I delt with my breast healing. So idk what to do. Anyways hope all is well and everyone is healing Nicely.
I think were in the same boat! Now that my twin skin is gone I think my arms need serious work! And my butt! And my hot dog legs! Lol! Give it some time before you decide on the arm lift, maybe in a month or so You'll be ready to make that decision. Ive seen some with great results, (mybariatriclife, has been a trooper through a phenomenal change). Good luck!

2 month update

Hey y'all... Sorry I haven't been on here much ive had a lot of catching up to do around the house and with the kids. I was down for almost an entire month. Not any more I'm back to my self! My breast is almost healed it's a tiny little spot now I'll put a pic up of that later and also a newer before and after. I'm in between sizes right now. When I first purchased pants I was a size 14 and I'm completely happy with that. Now 14s are to big and 12s are a little snug so is either need to eat a few cheese burgers or hit the gym lol... I went from a size 18/20 to a size 13/14. I'm so happy words can not begin to describe how amazing and happy I feel and am. I'm truly blessed. Thank all of you for your kind words and advice! It has literally changed my life.
WOWZERS girl! You look OUTSTANDING, can see why you are thrilled. What a great transformation, congrats on all your hard work and making it thru this surgery and recovery. You are beautiful. Happy for ya, HUGS :-DSuzy

Breast healed finally... Now another problem

Hey there sorry it's been so long life has been crazy. So my breast is healed and I'm so very happy about that the scars not to bad time will tell. So here is my new issue ... I look like I'm pregnant... (I'm not preggo!!) it looks like this all day even when I wake up at the end of the day which I think is normal swelling it hurts and my skin is super tight. I'm not sure if I have a seroma or just constant swelling idk. I see my doc in the morning well afternoon but we shall she what he says. On a side note I'm feeling great! (Beside the giant pudge)
Wow!!!! You look great...

Rocking that bikini! I think you have swelling, can't wait to hear what the doc says? Hope it's all good news!

You look so beautiful and serve as motivation for many of us!!! Congratulations on the new you! I can only hope that my results are just as promising! I read through your story and really connected with all the feelings you had before surgery... the reason why I logged in today is because I am having second thoughts... but than again I want this so badly... never wanted anything as much as this... I am happy I ran into your experience... I am very happy for you and I admire your strength and the fact that you shared your story so that those that come after you (like myself) find peace in knowing that everything will be worth it at the end... as it did for you! By the way I have to say that you brought me to tears when you shared about carrying your baby again... OMG... so touching... I dont have children but perhaps one day I will adopt :) xoxoxoxoxoxo!!!

Hmmmm...

Hey y'all.... So I went to the doc and he put me on a "watch" for my bulging belly he said he doesn't think it's a seroma
(I think differently) he thinks that I might of pulled some some of my sutures and to keep and eye on it. I'm pretty sure I would of noticed that pain but he's the expert so we shall see. On another note my breast has been fully healed for about 2 weeks now and I'm finally going back to the gym... I'm excited but nervous the "girls" are kinda heavy so we shall see... Anyways I hope everyone is healing well!
Hope you get everything figure out with your belly- so hard to be patient with that stuff! Good luck at the gym. I'm sure you're ready to get back at it, but don't forget to take it easy at the beginning. Again, easier said than done, I know ;)

Savannah Plastic Surgeon

Let me start with there website, very informative all credentials are displayed for all doctors, plenty of before and after pics, and prices!!! I stalked there website for 2 years before I got the guts to go for it. They have a satellite offices through out Georgia to accommodate many locations. Every single staff member is amazing I've called just to cry to them! Another unique thing is 98% of the staff has had some procedure done so they can share there first hand account very helpful. Now to the amazing Dr. Dascombe he is so sweet very thoughtful caring and understanding. After my consult I received a hand written card. Before surgery he called just to calm my nerves and after surgery he randomly calls about every 3-5 days to check in. He does amazing work he has written papers on wound healing and works with cancer patients. His bed side manner is impeccable very thoughtful and covers everything. His work is stunning he is a perfectionist! He was honest and willing to listen to what you want but he will do it safely. He has mastered a regiment to avoid infection. I can't say enough of good things about him. He changed my life forever in all the best ways possible!
