Never regained my figure after two kids. I struggled with 65/75 lbs of yo-yo weight gain with each of my two pregnancies due to thyroid issues. I also nursed each of my kids for 12/14 months. Prior to having kids, I was very athletic and fit. Once I lost all the 'baby weight', I was very disappointed that I was not even close to fitting into ANY of my pre-pregnancy clothes.
I was expecting and was prepared for a difficult recovery, but I have been completely off pain meds for over a week and I am recovering much faster than I had planned. I was impressed that Dr. Nachbar had a background in non-plastic surgery as well as plastic surgery. I was also impressed that Dr. Nachbar did not use drains. I didn’t want to have to mess with drains during the recovery time.
I wasn’t sure how I would feel afterwards. I had read that some people fall into a bit of a depression after they have plastic surgery. After the surgery, I only felt like I had been liberated somehow.
It is a painful surgery. I don’t think there is anything that can change that, but my mood and attitude towards it has been fabulous and I could not be happier with the results of the procedure. (My husband certainly hasn’t had any complaints either!) I have had absolutely no complications.
