I have decided to take the Mommy Makeover plunge! I, like so many others, have been on this site scouring everyone's stories, pictures, and journeys to their new bodies for the past month. It's amazing to see all the support from everyone on here...a family of sorts. Anyway, a little about me...I'm 34, mother to two great kids (6 yrs. & 18 mos.) and wife to the sweetest man. I originally started looking at Breast Augmentation and soon came across the Mommy Makeover. I, also, have more than one area that needs the hands of time to turn back...so I really began to seek out these reviews. Not only have I had two children, but I have lost some weight a couple of times and know that has contributed to some of my problem areas too. A year or so before having my daughter, I had lost 75 lbs. Of course, getting Pg changed that...and then a year or so after that I lost 65 lbs. and was at my smallest (weighing about 150 lbs.). I was able to keep that off for a few years and then got Pg with my son. I gained more weight with him too. It has been harder to loose the weight this time around. Right now I'm at 180...my goal is to loose maybe 10 lbs. by my surgery date.
I had my consultation Monday and was very comfortable and knew right away that this was the Dr. I wanted. He was very knowledgeable and did not put any kind of pressure on me and my husband. Answered all my questions. His wife is the RN and she is wonderful! I was concerned that I was going to need a Breast lift with the Augmentation...which he confirmed that I did...and he explained how that was done and why I needed it. We also discussed a tummy tuck and that I would need an extended tummy tuck, but since that was going to take a little longer in surgery he did not feel that we should do them together with the BL/BA because I would be under too long. So, my MM will be in stages...first the BL/BA and then the TT, which is fine with me b/c I'm such a pain wimp. After my husband and I discussed the $$ aspect I called today and scheduled the BL/BA for July 31st!! I'm so excited and a little nervous! I wanted to share my journey with all of you since I have been so engrossed with all of yours. Plus, I haven't told many people...I just told my dad and his wife this evening and that's about it so far. It went really well too, and they were happy for me...so yay! My husband is very supportive...in fact he is the one that said to start looking into it if I really wanted to do it. I'll post some before pics soon. Now the "hurry up and wait" begins. This will probably be the longest month ever!!
I have decided to take the Mommy Makeover plunge! ...
I've got my Pre-op scheduled!!
So I have my Pre-Op appt. scheduled!! I still can't hardly believe I'm doing this yet. I'm so ready though. I've finally mustard up the courage to put some before pics up. You will see that, not only are my boobs saggy, they have asymmetry issues too. Sooo not cool!
Vacation from work is Approved!
Yay! My vacation from work is approved! Things are getting real! Ahhh!!! I haven't told anyone at my work about the surgery...I feel it's none of their business. I have told my family and they are all supportive, and that makes me feel good. Plus, I work with mostly men and I really don't feel confident enough to tell them "Hey, I'm getting a boob job!" If they notice (which is possible and probable) and ask I don't plan on denying it. Anyway, I feel like July is going to sooo slow, but then in a way like it will fly by too and I'll be leaving my house for the surgical center. I'm going to try and take some more before pics so I'll something to compare to after it's over. I really want to be able to compare the difference of what I look like in some of my tops! Ladies, what kinds of things should I be getting for after the BL/BA is over? I'm so glad I have somewhere to talk about this, with so many women. Thank you all for being there for me and each other!
More before pics...
So, I decided to take some before pics of myself in a couple tops. Now I'll have something to compare after the BA/BL. I try not to think about the up coming surgery too much, but when I do I get butterflies in my stomach. This next week I am planning to start some deep cleaning so I can come back home to a clean house. The time is starting to go by quickly now! I've been trying to record movies and tv shows that I can watch after the surgery too...plus getting a few books to read as well! I hope all the ladies that have recently gone through surgery are healing well!
