Momma got her body back, 32 yo momma of two - Baltimore, MD

Hi...Im 32 and lost 100# thru proper nutrition and a lo of exercise. I gained that weight with my two boys . I had two c sections and they are ages 2 & 4. I'm scheduled for surgery march 29. I'm getting a mommy makeover. Breast lift, implant tummy tuck and a little lipo on the flanks. I'm 5feet 9 inches. I'm a full time police officer and very active in general. I think my biggest concern is everywhere I look, so many patients and doctors say they wished they went bigger.I'm scheduled for 350 CC. I have broad shoulders and little hips. I see women a lot smaller then me going bigger and look very tasteful. So my question to you all, after the swelling went down and you got adjusted to your new body, did you wish you went bigger? I go in for a second consult on Feb 22 and want to be sure so I can order my bras.

I've decided on 375 CC...perfect size for me and...

I go in for my pre op Wednesday . ...this is do or die for me since I will be paying. I'm getting cold feet. I'm so nervous and questioning if I'm doing the right thing. I've even been stress eating and gained four pounds. Did anyone else feel this way? I'm also going to owe about 5400. Did everyone pay outright for their operation? I know I want this but nervous about the money and recovery. Any insight?or suggestions

Posting a few before pics along with my supplies...my PS gave me all of prescriptions and told me to bring them with me. And also gave me VitaMedica recovery support program supplements. In that I pve been taking a morning and evening supplement of three pills two week prior to my surgery. Then bromekain with quercetin I start taking the 26 the then arnica Montana 30x I take after the surgery. I haven't gotten bras just because I don't know what size I'll be afterwards. I may have to send my husband to the mall once I find out.

Went in for a follow up. I told the nurse about my furious it chins and redness. Nurse said I might be allergic or have an infection. So I stopped all other meds and was given a different antibiotic. I'll go back to see them Thursday. This itching is out of control im taking benadryl for it now and motrin.

I'm 19 days PO. I'm doing awesome. I've started walking a little, but need to get another bra before I start more walking. I can't workout for another two weeks, I'm looking forward to it. I have a sporadic white fluid like liquid coming from my lift incision on my right breast. No other complications. I may see the doctor tomorrow about it. It feels like I'm lactating and that's what it looks like. I hope it clears up on its own.the right breast is a little firmer then the left. I added more pictures too.

I'm about one month out and feel and look fabulous...if I may say so myself. How is everyone is feeling?
Baltimore Plastic Surgeon

Read a lot of very positive reviews on him and the practice on multiple independent forums, I love his work in the pictures he showed me. And he took his time and was patient with all of my questions as was the patient coordinator. I hope he can back it up and I won't be disappointed lol
