I have had three 9lbs babies, and gained a ton of weight with each pregnancy. I have been working hard to lose the weight. After losing 60lbs from my last pregnancy, I have been left with a saggy and fatty looking belly and hips, and sagging boobs with excess skin I can pinch and make it stay in place. Its hard to find clothes that fit me, especially only being 5'2, that I know when I can pull and squish that skin I can see how much smaller I would be if I could just get rid of it. I went to my surgeon, and he suggested that I could have a tummy tuck done. He suggested if I wanted tightness on both my tummy and hips and sides a fleur dis lis would be the best but I could still have amazing results with just a regular abdominoplasty. I decided to go for a regular on, as much as I wouold love the perfect hour glass, I can't imagine having a scar up my midsection as well.
That now brings me to my breasts. We applied to insurance for a reduction. My surgeon suggested 460g to be removed (binging me to a small D /Full C he said). The insurance company denied my claim, saying it had to be 480g. After talking to me, even though I don't want to be too small, the shoulder and back pain are killing me, and to be able to just wear a bra without it digging, or a swimsuit without adjusted my slipped down boobs every few seconds, to even being able to sleep without a bra for a single night without them flailing all over just seems to much of a bonus to pass up, plus if I find them too small I can always have an implant later on down the road to achieve the size I want (C-D). :P So we resubmitted my claim,and I am hoping all goes well. I am currently a very saggy 38DDD. during pregnancy I was so big I couldn't even find a bra to fit! So you can imagine the havock that caused the girls lol.
My dress size is a 10-12. I hate always having the pant bulge, and the muffin top. Pants are just a no no :( To be able to look good in my clothes, have them fit better, and find some cute bras to fit. I always wondered why some women want huge boobs, if they only knew the trouble they can be for bras, pain and clothing! Sometimes being "blessed" isn't such a blessing! LOL I am a bit freaked out, and worried about recovery and pain. But I know it will all be worth it in the end. So as soon as I find out about the reduction, I am booking the rest!
