Since my first child I could see that I don't have...
I knew it was inevitable that I would need surgery... I researched around for months & I found CIRUMED in Malaga my favorite. Good reviews, brilliant website & attentive staff who answer your every question! I had a skype consultation with DR Aslani & sent photos as I live in the Balearic Islands & It's 2 plane rides away!
He was very professional and gave me his advice of a mommy makeover ( tummy tuck & breast lift) & it could be done all in one procedure! It all sounds great! I'm waiting on confirmation of a bank loan to finance part of my surgery as I am also getting married in June and weddings are so expensive I just can't justify it! So I am waiting for that, Monday or Tuesday I will know for sure and I will then book flights & accommodation! Then off I go!
So scary!!!! I will update next week!
Wish me luck!
I'm all booked! It's happening!
The night before!
I am nervous but quite calm at the moment.... I think tomorrow in the hospital I will be crapping myself! But it's time to say goodbye to the belly and hello to a new me!
Thank you for everyone's support! I will update tomorrow night if I am feeling up to it. If not it will be Tuesday
Wish me luck!

Your probably wondering how I am? I think I'm doing better than some people after such a big operation... But I'm still finding it hard... Cant wait for The first week to pass so I can start to feel a little human again. When I came out of surgery yesterday I was ok.... Moderate pain but it was bearable... Sorry guys but it gets worse... I still have drains in and hopefully this morning the nurses are taking them out along with the cannula which also very annoying!
Going to the bathroom is hell! Having to take all the drains and medicine bags with me, also u have to take my garment off and pull down the pull In pants ( magic knickers) they put on my over my drains.... It really hurts!
I feel dirty and I smell... Can't wait to get a shower or at least a sponge bath! My sister in law is here helping me and she has been great. You need someone to help you!
If anyone has any questions just ask.
My only advice would be to expect the worst! Then maybe it won't be so bad.... I expected the worst and I'm still supposed how hard it is... Don't go into this lightly.... Think about it.
Tummy scars! 2 days post op
5 days post op
Anyway... I can almost walk straight! Thought it would take much longer, but I'm doing it! Still painful but better each day and I am now only on antibiotics I stopped taking pain killers 2 days after op. I have to admit I am feeling really good now! Liking the look of my almost new body! Hopefully in a few weeks I will be on top of the world! My only major concern now is that my wounds heal without problems or infection and that I don't get a seroma! Other that that I am super happy! Feels so worth all the pain now!
I still haven't had a proper shower! I am too scared to get dressings and wounds wet, I am quite happy to sponge clean myself every morning until the dressing come off and things look ok with the healing.
Still sleeping semi upright but everyday I am lying more and more flat in bed... Which is great as sleeping becomes easier!
My advice is to take it easy and listen to your body! Do not over do it! You will regret it... And no matter how fit you are before the operation afterwards just getting up and going to the toilet is rather exhausting!
I am very pleased to say my recover SO FAR has been good and straight forward!
One happy girl here!

I went to get my dressings changed and had laser with Jeannine. All went great and I feel so much better! Scars seem to be healing well! I have to say I never expected so soon after my surgery to feel so good! I know I will never look back! I feel sexy again! Even love my scars.... How weird is that?!
I think I will definitely return in the future to Dr Aslani maybe for a little BBL ( if he can find any fat left on me!) lol!
Ecstatic! Finally feel like me again after having my children!
Not feeling good today 10 day post op
Will update pics tomorrow because I really can't move now I'm too tired!
17 days post op
Feeling a bit emotional today! No idea why!? My incisions are healing nicely and moving around is getting much easier now. My only concern is my left breast is hurting, painful to touch at the top & it aches....wouldn't worry if it was both breasts but as it's not the one I do wonder if there's anything sinister going on in there!? Or is this normal?
I will update next week when I'm 3 weeks post op and with photos!
I have a few issues with my incisions... My right breast at the bottom of the vertical incision is oozing and looks a little infected. I have been putting iodine on and trying to get air to it hoping it will heal over!
My tummy tuck incision looks fine apart from right in the middle above my pubic bone is very sore to touch and red also looks swollen ( almost like a blister)
What do I do? I am waiting for advice from my surgeon but would be good to hear from you guys, especially if u have had this problem....

I can move around a lot easier now and it doesn't hurt much at all ( apart from sneezing or coughing). My incisions are healing now after my stitch issues but are taking their time! Still a but worried about them but hopefully soon will be a distant memory!
I just received my pre and post op pictures from Dr Aslani and I can't believe the transformation I've made! I will put the pictures on here... The post pictures were taken 1 week post op. I will update again in a few weeks! Thanks! Xxx
2 month post op
Everything is good and I am very happy with my results... My tummy is looking good and I have started running again! Hopefully lose a few kilos before my wedding in 6 weeks!
I'm a little disappointed in the shape of my breasts, they look a little deformed but hopefully with time the shape will get better... If not I'm sure there's something DR Aslani could do to rectify it.
So I feel almost back to normal now... I must ask when I can do abdominal crunches again.
Any questions just ask!
Almost 6 months post op
I have to thank this man for his brilliant work! I am very happy! Only 5 days post op, so it's early days and I've a few minor issues with the dressings, apart from that I feel very good and I like my new body already! I just hope to heal quickly now! Xxx
