Just turned 30 and I’m ready for this more...

just turned 30 and I’m ready for this more than ever!! I feel like I’m in a good place in my life to finally get this done. I’m wanting to do a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation. I have 3 kids ages 14, 13 and 7. Been with my hubby since I was 15 teen Years old. Been to hell and back! It’s not easy being a teen mom..

Anyways... I have always had a small frame. I’m 4”11 and I weigh about 117 pounds. I workout about 3 times a week and eat healthy. I have lost about 20 pounds since my last pregnancy. Now I have so much extra skin I hate it! It drives me out of my mind! I have always had a tummy since my 1st pregnancy. My boy was 9 pounds and the after math on that was not funny! lol No matter how much I have tried I cannot get rid of this extra loose skin.

I have been getting all kinds of mixed feelings about my surgery. From family to friends. Examples… ‘OMG’ your crazy your already skinny! That’s a waste of money! You’re a mom not a teenager! Too.. wow you really deserve this! You’ve worked so hard raising your kids it’s time for you to enjoy life. As for my HUBBY… Well it took him a good while to be okay with my decision. He’s now worry about the pain and me taking time off of work. Other than that he’s good!!! Lol I have so many worries but I’m sure I will be okay. I guess it’s normal to have all these mixed emotions

Anybody out there with any advice for little oh me

Omg theres no turning back now!! Just paid in full!!My implants have been ordered and I am still stressing about cc's?!?! The ps ordered 3 sizes, but I think I'm going to go with the largest which is 375. I'd love to hear from other girls who received the same size implants. What your stats were and what size you ended up as after breast augmentation.

Here are my stats, if anyone has any insight onto what size I might end up as: (I know it's different for everyone, just wanting to reassure myself)

height - 5'0

weight - 117lbs
pre - 36C but don't fill up A all the way)
size - 375 cc, Contour Profile Gel (CPG) cohesive silicone
post - ??? Let me know what you think

I am so glad there is someone my height on this site. I have a few questions: I have 36 C and my boobs do not completely fill up my bra all the way...I want to be closer to a D like when I was pregnant...how did you figure out the right size for you? What was the most difficult part of your recovery? And do you have any advice about any of the procedure for before or after?

THANKS U SOO MUCH GIRL! HOWS YOURS?

WOWWW!! You're looking great already! I know the pain is a downer but you'll get through it. Before u know it u will be back to your old self again. My pain pump ran out 2 nights ago and now I can feel the soreness and the dull ache around my incision. I'm using a heating pad and taking some demerol tablets and the discomfort goes away. I'm sure we will be completely back to our old selves by next month.
