Finally Going for It! :) - Toms River, NJ

I am a 32 mother of a five year old little boy :)...

I am a 32 mother of a five year old little boy :) I have always struggled with my weight. At 22 I topped out at 185 lbs. By age 25 i was 125 lbs and after having my son at 27 i have stayed between 128 and 130. I recently quit smoking. Fat sure does seem to redistribute after having a baby :) I want the body that I worked so hard for in my 20's back. I have always been top heavy but the girls seem to have deflated after pregnancy (although they were never a matching pair). My arms and back once looked "athletic" now look a bit matronly.

I had a c section and my wonderful dr put the muscles back in place but fat and loose skin was not his department. I've never had a narrow waist (or maybe i just have narrow hips? :) And my super flat but once perky behind is slowly migrating into that upside down triangle that Irish gals are cursed with.

OH, one last "problem" (for lack of a better word)area, my skin from smoking, sun damage (in younger years) and melasma, is less than glowy these days. I am having what my girlfriends have dubbed the ultimate mommy makeover. Mini tuck, breast lift, vaserlipo arms back and flanks, fat grafting to the behind and laser resurfacing. I know it seems like a bit much but id rather do it in one shot. less time off of work, less money ect. I've been on the fence for 2 years now. I found a dr I'm confortable with and I'm going for it.

Two more days until preop apt. I'm freaking...

two more days until preop apt. I'm freaking out. I keep second guessing myself. Do I need this? Am I being horribly selfish? What if things go horribly wrong? My PS had better be prepared for this apt lol. Blood work today. My mother who was dead set against this is taking that week off of work. I am a horrible patient so my hubby appreciates this :) love you mom xoxo

Pre op appointment went great. I feel so much more...

pre op appointment went great. I feel so much more at ease. I had four pages of questions written out before walking in the doctors office and they were all answered (plus) before I could ask them and they are so supportive. I am generally a happy go lucky girls but the past two weeks i have been on an emotional rollercoaster. 9 days :)


Posting the before pics is the scariest part yet.....

Posting the before pics is the scariest part yet... filled the script for anxiety meds. AHHHHHHHHH better.


Ok so i thought I would share this. I Cant lay on...

ok so i thought I would share this. I Cant lay on my stomach after surgery and I shouldnt rest on my buns after fat grafting. side sleeping is not recomended so they said to rest on right or left hip with upper back flat...... bwahahahahahahahahahah. YEAH RITE. So... This will either be genius or big waste I bought two "bed wedges" for upper back and feet and a extra firm 5" thick foam cusion that is almost the size of a twin bed. We cut two hole in the foam for my butcheeks:) I tried it out and only my tail bone and butt crack area are putting weight on the foam. seems perfect in theory. we shall see


Part of the process... fear. Took a day trip...

Part of the process... fear. Took a day trip yesterday with my guys :) all the way home (two hours) behind a truck with the grim reaper on it. WTF lol AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.... meds. Yeah definately meds...

All is well so far! Thanks for all the support!! It means so much. Hardest part so far is taking care of face after co2. Post of today. I LOVE my PS. Only thing I got to see so far is the booty so AWESOME. I wanna smack it but that would hurt lol

Two days post op... feeling not too shabby. hubby...

two days post op... feeling not too shabby. hubby has been an angel. Mom has kidnapped my son. I have a routine going for treatment and med/vitamins. Saw doc yesterday... he says I look great I concur. but with all the swelling and bruising I'm not foxified yet. my booty is rounder my arms and back fat is MIA, Belly is flatter and I have perky little boobs that match :) Co2 laser resurfacing is the worse

No bm yet and im bloated and swolen. no pain just...

no bm yet and im bloated and swolen. no pain just uncomfy. Tried ducolax and MOM.. no luck. Hubby came back from pharmacy with these DISGUSTING cherry flavored drinks that he claims will do the trick. At th other end... my face that has been bleeding crusting and oozing has been well "gooped" with aquaphor as to prevent scabbing. Not a good look.

6 days after surgery... not to be gross but......

6 days after surgery... not to be gross but... finally had a bm... several bms. been in the bathroom reflecting on this whole process since 3:30 am. It is now 6:15 and im enjoying a bowl of alphabits and updating you fine people. I Feel fantastic. I have some swelling and my belly has been very distended. I have lots of bruises. I also have random stitches all over from lipo. THey and my healing face are incredibly ITCHY!!!

One week post op and bruising is started to fade....

one week post op and bruising is started to fade. I'm off the heavy med (whoa) and i'm comfortably uncomfortable. I am so swolen I am bigger than I was before surgery :( I know I'm being illogical but I am discouraged and uncomfy and impatient lol I feel better just having someone to bitch too... thanks for listening. K going to have stitches taken out today and hopefully this disgusting drain too.

Bow chica wow wow... getting this drain out today...

bow chica wow wow... getting this drain out today (I hope)... excited! Ha.. It's the little things. Time has been crawling. I want to work out so bad. I went back to work four days ago. Progress is a slowwww process. No where near bikini ready. I'm taking "make me heal"'s post op suplements. I think they are helping. I'm off of pain meds except for over the ibuprophen. I want to SLEEP ON MY STOMACH! I want my face to stop being red. I want it to be july... OK im done being negative. Wait one more... I removed the tape from around my nipples and they look.. like I had surgery :( I know im being irrational but I'm human. OK... NOW i'm done being negative. have a funtastic day

I'm 3 1/2 weeks out and still hurting. I'm not as...

I'm 3 1/2 weeks out and still hurting. I'm not as swolen but not where I want to be. All the areas that I had lipo are lumpy and bumpy. Is this just part of the process? Does anyone have any suggestions? I also have one spot under my breast that doesnt seem to want to heal. There was a scab there and it came off with my bra over a week ago and has been oozing since. Is this aslo normal? All was good until this past week. Now I'm starting to worry about everything. My body seems to evolve and change everyday one concern will resolve and a new one pops up. Talk to me girls :)

I am 10 weeks post op. I'm back to my normal...

I am 10 weeks post op. I'm back to my normal workout regimen. I am still sore often in areas where I had lipo. My scars have flattened out nicely. Some dark spots have returned to my face but every fine line is gone.
Middletown Plastic Surgeon

I Saw many other PS before I chose Dr Nagy. He listens to me. He is humble and down to earth. He didnt try to sell me anything. He actually talked me out of a few things. He was a complete professional. I asked to see some of his before and after pics. He is an artist. He knows his schtuff and he's the supercoolest :)
