I was 43 years old and I had the surgery because of losing all the weight that I did through weight loss surgery five years ago. I was feeling like Humpty Dumpty and I wanted to be put back together again. :) I wanted to feel attractive to myself and to my husband, just basically for myself image. I had all the work done at one time: Breast lift, implants, tummy tuck and lipo outer thighs. I don't remember much from the first week, my husband kept me very medicated so I wouldn't be in pain. The second week, I really wasn't in pain, but really sore! I had to wear the body suit for 3 weeks and bra to support the new me, it wasn't bad at all, actually was kind of nice because it kept everything in place.
For most, one can drive after 3-4 weeks; it took me around 5-6 weeks to be able to drive a vehicle. Around my second month, I got a bout of depression for about 2.5 months... I didn’t want to go anywhere, didn’t want to cook, clean, take a bath, I didn’t want to do anything, I did just the bare minimum… and now I feel wonderful. I’m so glad that I did have everything done at once, it was tough on my husband that took care of me for the first week, but I wouldn’t want to do it any other way. I'm now 4 months out, my breast have settled nicely and my tummy if flat.
I'm a very modest person, and I felt very comfortable with Dr. Case. He did a fabulous job with my breast lift/implants/tummy tuck and outter thighs lipo... I would do the surgery again with Dr. Case in a heart beat.
