So I've decided to get a mommy makeover
I had my first child at 16 she is now nearly 5 and I had my second child 8 months ago
I am left with two beautiful children and one very unattractive body.
In 8 weeks im getting a mommy makeover with a mini tummy tuck and breast lift with implants I read so many great reviews on here from such strong inspiring women and I thought I should give back a little so im starting my review ill update with pictures when my surgery date is a bit closer

anxiety is setting in

Its weird how the closer I get to my surgery date the more I wonder what the heck ive gotten myself into
I have always wanted to change my body and now that it's all paid for and is only days away I just feel very scared and am doubting my decision

On another note I did have my pre op last week that went well sort of hahaha he showed me how low my scare would be (sitting just on my public hair line) and showed me how much skin he is removing with the mini tummy tuck only a couple of inches -.- he promised it will be enough and that ill be happy but I'm still really worried that ill still have to hide my stomach he told me that he can only remove a small amount of skin because there still needs to be around 9 centimeters of skin between my pubic hair line and my belly button and I asked if I should do a full tummy tuck but he told me the scars that I will have (horizontal and vertical from my old belly button) wouldn't be worth it for the small amount of skin bellow my belly button that I want to remove
I guess ill just have to trust him , he is the expert
Well im going to go ahead and put up some photos so all of you ladies know what im dealing with

well im feeling pretty good at the moment

Im up at 2:00am to take pain killers cause the pain was pretty bad when I first woke up
Im at home as of a couple of hours after surgery my beautiful boyfriend has been a god send and is helping me both physically and emotionally
Well let me tell you guys a bit about yesterday I have been fasting since the night before and was supposed to have surgery at 2ish but the lady before me her surgery took much longer than anticipated so I ended up in surgery at around 4:30 and was out by 7:00
Prior to getting my drip and everything I met I was shaking from fear I even had a break down earlier with one of the nurse
The whole staff and team were great and all very kind I really couldn't have asked for a better team of people to be there with me
So anyway I walked into the surgery room and was asked to lay down on the table I got my drio in and was told I would be receiving "the happy drugs" the assistant joked with me telling me it was about to get fun haha but the happy drug was great fun for about 10 seconds before I was out
Next thing I know im waking up the nurse was there I asked her to sit me up cause my chest was very heavy making it quite hard to breathe and just before I sat up I noticed the pain in my mini tummytuck incision OUCH it hurts way more than I anticipated she sat my bed up walked me to a chair and god bless her went and got my boyfriend cause I was the last patients she didn't have to make us wait
The pain really started to set it not long after that she gave me anti nausea medicine in my drip then removed the drip and walked me to the bed and gave me pain killers by this stage it was pretty bad the pain killers don't kick in till 40 mins after and I felt like vomiting
But after they kicked in which was on my drive home I felt a whole lot better im dying to shower and try to have a good look haha

less then 24 hrs since

Suprisingly I have very little swelling in my stomach but my chest is still very swollen
I don't feel to bad if I keep on top of my pain medication but if I have to sit up I can't use my abdomen muscles or my arms so im struggling with that

Thank you very much

dont make my mistake

I got so uncomfortable last night in the reclined position so I moved my giant sitting up pillow and swapped it for one normal pillow with a small cushion underneath it
When I woke up about 15 minutes ago to go toilet I move a tiny inch and was in excruciating pain my boyfriend still has to get me up from a laying down position as I can not use my abs or my arms so he held my hands to give me something to pull up with and my whole body just started shaking from pain
I feel a bit better after I sat down again but I am going to definitely sleep with my sit up pillow for a while longer

finally

Ive been trying to update my review all day but for some reason I couldn't access my page
But anyway day 5 post op and I feel pretty good for the most part I seem to be getting more and more swollen every day though I look pregnant infact my daughter asked me if I was and I told her "no honey just have a big belly after my operation"
On another note I've finished taking my pain medication and I don't think I will need to take anything at all now I feel like the pain im in is quite bearable as long as I don't do too much
Well ill upload some pictures I took this morning

It's probably just from the swelling

not feeling happy about my mini tummytuck

I know its early days yet but I am still feeling really upset about what I have at the moment im just praying it only gets better from here

2 Comments

I have the same swelling and roundish shape that you have - so that is nothing to worry about. Some days (or parts of days :/ ) I'm as flat as a board, and other days I look like a marshmallow with a rubber band around the middle!!! The loose skin however, I don't have, but I had a full tummy tuck and not a mini, I'll try to put up a sitting pic later today for you to compare. It's an ordeal getting in and out of these compression garments :) plus I'm off playing mummy at the school canteen!

Thank you for commenting I hope its only swelling and not fat thats been left behind I was not given a compression garment so im wondering if thats the reason for all the swelling

just a pic of the scar

I also swelled and am bigger post op ( currently less than two weeks post). Be patient! My dr says it would take at least two months. Just don't look down there :)you look good

Interesting that you weren't given a compression garment. My PS wants me to wear it as much as possible (24x7) x 2+months. I believe the compression helps reduce sweeping and promote contouring. PS even suggested adding the layer of foam to the compression process. I'll try to post a pic of my double-trouble gear. ;)

I was bigger than my pre op size for two to three weeks! The swelling should start to go down soon and you should have better result. Maybe it would help if you went and bought a spanks or something similar to help with the swelling.

progress? nope!

Still happy with boobs but hating that belly
I thought that having this procedure would raise my confidence but I am still embarrassed of my belly and I still cant get intimate with my boyfriend with out focusing all of my energy on holding my jiggling belly
Ohh who knows if it will get better the nurse at my pre op said its still swollen so dont judge just yey and im thinking to my self if it's swollen shouldn't it be more filled out then it will be once the swelling is gone ?
Someone please tell me it gets tighter after it heals? ????

You look tiny! Fabulous! Give it a few months, I'm sure there'll be many changes over the next few months

Thank you ive really been watching what I eat since the surgery cause I freaked about how big I looked from swelling so hopefully its paying off
You look great! Don't be so hard on yourself. It's still very early in your recovery. Hugs and love

......

I was supposed to have my 3 week check up this last Monday but I got a call Monday morning from the office saying the nurse had called in sick hmm that's funny cause im ment to see the surgeon for all follow up appointments after my one week post op so im a bit confused as to why im booked in to see the nurse instead .I also asked if I should replace my steri strips if I wasn't going to see anyone for a whole week cause all of mine had fallen off, I was told that the nurse would call me the following day but nothing
Also I called up about two weeks ago to ask for a different size post op bra(my current one was hurting my back it is too tight) got told one would be sent out to me with in a week and still nothing so ive been wearing sports bras and stuff of that nature im really starting to feel like now that they have my money im not very important
On another note I've noticed that when I lean over my boobs go a funny shape like a peanut shell shape with my natural breast tissue hanging and the implant remaining snug up in my chest muscle is this normal? Did it happen to anyone else?
