Mommy Makeover/lipo Arms . I Feel So Horrible About My Body - Tipp City, OH

I feel so horrible about my body. I have lost 80lbs through diet and excercise am am left with a saggy body. I knew when I started my weight loss journey 2 years ago that I would be here, as my trainer warned me :) My goal is to just be normal and wear clothes that fit. I am feeling confused, as I feel that the Dr.s are not listening to me as to what I want. I don't want to pay for this and go through the pain if its not what I want :) I want breast implants for fullness at the top and a "round" apprearance. Not just a lift. I have learned that this site is a wonderful inspiration and I am so happy that I have found it :)

This week I am having really wierd feelings. I am...

This week I am having really wierd feelings. I am quitting smoking (chantix) . It's making me crazy!!! I also am feeling scared about things like...what if I have breast cancer and they find it and I can't get my breasts done. What if I am not healthy enough to get the surgery? I have worked so hard for this. I really think the quitting smoking is really mentally exhausting. I know it will be worth it for sure and is a normal part of the journey.

Not sure if it was worth it. I am 2 weeks post op...

Not sure if it was worth it. I am 2 weeks post op and my belly is twice as big above my belly button
Dr. Christopher Reeder

I am choosing Dr. Reeder because he is the closest to me and really made sense of this procedure and I liked his instructions for recovery. I like the pain pump idea and that he uses the drains.

Thanks amy828! I am happy to report that I have been smoke free for 2 weeks and have the confidence that I will be able to keep it that way :) I did use Chantix and I am doing well with it. No side effects...yet...!

WTG Poppers I know how hard it is! I was surprised at how much better things smelled and tasted! I do not get winded at the gym anymore! I also saved the money I would have spent on ciggies and used to buy myself a congrat present (fancy sunglasses) at the two month mark!

Congrats on your weight loss! I am so happy you found a doctor that you feel comfortable with! Many of us used Chantix to help us quit smoking. It really made me CRAZY!! I used one half of a pill once a day! Sometimes I think the dosages for some of these medications are just too strong. Once I lowered the dosage it was not as bad for me. Have a happy journey to your new you- you deserve it!

Congrats on the weight loss! I have lost 90 lbs since my highest non-pregnancy weight so I know how hard it is. I am having a Mommy Makeover in October.... lower body lift + breast augmentation. Best wishes to you! :)

Hey welcome! I feel the same way as you do. That's why this site is so wonderful. It sounds like you need to find a d that listens to you. My dr took so much time listening to what I wanted my breasts to look like after. He kept asking me a ton of questions. 

What else are you getting done?

Hi. I am not sure as to what all I am having done :) As much as I need I suppose. I just have a budget of 20k. I think it will probably be tummy tuck, breast lift and hopefully implants, lipo in the bra roll, flanks and arms. Have you already had surgery?

No mines oct 29th. I am having a full Tt, MR, BL,BA LIPO to my upper stomach, back, flanks, inner and outer thighs. I can't wait!
