Mommy Makeover Journey - Tijuana, Mexico

I'm 32 years old. I'm a mother of 3 girls and 1 boy. I'm just like any other person who gained and lost weight, I'm just not happy with my body. I'm getting a TT, BL with implant, Lipo on my upper and lower back. I'm still trying to decide if I should get a BBL. I know my husband would like it if I did. I decided to get my surgery done in Tijuana, Mexico with Dr. Luis Saurez @ the Cer Clinic. I chose Dr. Suarez because he is board certified, has many years of experience, I feel comfortable with him and his staff, I'm impressed with hide before and after pictures, and he is affordable. I've been wanting this surgery for a long time. I'm really excited I have a little less then two week till the big day! I'll be posting my journey, I hope to help out those who are considering on getting surgery done in Mexico. Also those who want to give me advice, words of encouragement and prayers are always welcome. Don't get me wrong I'm nerves to get surgery done in another country, away from my family but excited at the same time. My fear and nerves has nothing to do with surgery or Dr. it's the post op, I'm nerves about. I'll post by before pictures, before surgery and I can't wait to post the AFTER pictures!!

Just one week away!! MJ & Violet booked my hotel room made arrangements for me to get picked up at the airport. So excited! I just need to get everything at home ready for me to be gone. I'm not used to people doing things for me, so it's going to be hard. I'm a stay home mom and I'm used to doing everything. I'm going to miss my four babies (12yr, 6yr, 2yr, and 11 month old) but for once I'm doing something of myself and sometime away to make sure that get all the rest that I need. Well I'll talk to you ladies soon :)

Well, tomorrow is surgery day!! I'm excited! I've been waiting for this day for a long time. I met Dr. Suarez today and I was very pleased with him. I feel so confident about my surgery tomorrow. I want to thank everyone who will be prayering for me. Not nervous at all, I'm so ready for this. So for tonight I'll say goodnight and see you on the flat side ;)

My recovery has been great. My pain hasn't been bad, I'm a little sore and I'm sure it because I was leaning on my right side to much.
Let my start with my surgery day. They took me into my room. Got undressed, said bye to my husband. I got an epidural and something else can't remember what it was but I was like an a twilight. When I woke up I couldn't stop throwing up I spent that whole night like that. My husband said i threw up all over him, i wanted to call everyone. i dont recall that. They wouldnt let me get up. i had a Catheter on and something on my legs that compressed to keep the blood circulating. When they removed the Catheter it hurt to peed for a few days but infection! The next day they took me to the hotel. I guess I was still dazed. I was lucky my husband helped me out a lot. I spent that day mostly sleeping. We got room service the food was good. They want you to eat chicken so that's what I did. I changed my dressing cause they were wet from the drainage of the lipo. I had to spend my husband to get me dressing and pads to place on the bed. The lipo is what hurt the most and still hurts :/
A week after my surgery I went back to TJ. I got my drains removed. I was so happy!! I also got the surgical tape removed. They showed my were the surgical cuts and they look good. On my breast very small and thin. On my tummy tuck it also is then thin. I was very pleased.
After my appointment we went to dinner and met a lady their that was a friend of my aunt. We started talking I ended up telling her that I just PS and she asked me who did my work cause she also wants to get implants. I told her Dr Suarez and she said that he is one of the best ones in TJ. It reassured me that I did get surgery done by the best. I'm a happy women.
