Hi everyone I'm new and would love any advice...

Hi everyone I'm new and would love any advice comments!!

After wanting a tummy tuck for years and now having my two children. Also going from 15 stone to 10.9 stone at 5'7 I'm now comfortable!! I have finally decided to bit the bullet! Eeekk scared and excited at the same time!!

So I have seen 4 different plastic surgeons and yesterday I met the one that made me feel so comfortable with him, I fist saw him and spent 20 mins talking before he even asked to look at my tummy and the he did more the just grab and pull on it!!! Like others! The whole team made me feel comfortable with them. Soooooooooooooo I have April 11th 2014 booked for my surgery!! :-) waiting for more bits to be sent through email before I fully commit and pay etcetera!

Excited couldn't sleep last night, haha feel like a kid coming up to Christmas is that stupid?!

Photo of me before lost weight

So here is a photo of me befor I lost weight. Sorry it's only a face one as that's all I could fine! With me being so big I never took anything below the face lol, and one of my beautiful babies who's now 7! Times flown!!

The remarks have started! :-(

So the horrible remarks have started! Such as omg all that money why would you spend that all on you I think that's selfish! Think about what you could get the kids!! Or really why, you don't need to! Or waste of money really!:-(
Uughh!!
Well as if I now don't feel guilty! Like a bad mother! But you know what how am I good, when I can't even go on holiday with my family and enjoy it because I have no confidence! I can't even take my kids swimming! Wouldn't it be better if I could do all that with them and feel happy? Isn't a happy mum what makes your kids and family happy?
So after that had a small cry and then my partner comes home and puts his arm round me and tells me how much he has already seen a change in me even before the op! Just knowing I'm having it done, has made me so happy! And that all that counts is that he and my kids love me and want me to be happy!
Oh what a day! But I suppose it's to be expected!

Please don't listen to those comments, they are jealous words! Your surgery isn't just for you, it will make you a happier mammy for your babies and partner... It will give you confidence and your children need that in a mammy.... so understand completely, you will no longer feel embarrassed to sit with the kids and play on the ground in case anyone sees your rolls of skin through your clothes... I was exactly the same! And now I will be a more active mam who can play with her kids without thinking people are staring at my tummy! I have been there where you are now, and there's nothing worse.... Don't feel guilty, feel excited of all the happier times you and your lovely family will have! ( and the sex life will get better too cos u wot feel embarrassed anymore ;)) Xxxxx

Addicted!

Ok so I'm now addicted to watching youtube videos of tummy tuck procedures and constantly looking at before and after pics! But it's getting to the point were I'm so worried that I'm expecting to much and there is no possible way my tummy can look as good as the ones I'm seeing!! :-(

2 Comments

I was the same way…addicting to watching surgical procedures online haha. Isn't it fascinating? If you're concerned about your outcome, just do all that you can do before surgery. Eat well, get some exercise if you can. I remember trying to be at my lowest weight pre-op so I could have the best results possible. The leaner you are pre-op, the better results you will have (in my opinion).
  • Reply
Yeah I love watching them haha is that weird! I know I have lost 4 pound already since being given my date, I have had a massive bost just to lose a lightly more not that I'm to bothered about it as I'm at my goal but I just think light bit more and I will get better results! I guess I have wanted this for so long I can't really get it in to my head that for one it's happening and two I will have a flat tummy! :-) Thanks for the post! X

All paid!

So last payment went through today! :-) so it's defo happening! Three weeks today! And I will be ready to go down to surgery!.
So now concentrating on eatting health and staying active. See if can get few more pounds off and be a fit as I can ready for recover!

Been and brought some jogging bottoms and a new pair of pjs for in hospital! Baggier and comforter the better!! :-)

Eeeeee not long! So exciting! I am super happy with my tummy now! It's amazing! Are you having any lipo to the love Handles with your TT? I had it and I have to say it's made a huge difference! The surgeon has given me a killer shape! I love it!
  • Reply
Yeah I'm having lipo too. I knew I would need it and will make my result so much better! I'm so excited I can't wait. But I'm in my last year of nurse training so have plenty of assignment to get on and done before my op! Which will keep me occupied! :-)
Just wanted to say hi as I could really identify with a lot of the things you have said in your review. Wishing the very best of luck, I'm 22 days po now and feel happy with what I have done. If there is anything specific you can think that you want to know I'm happy to help if I can I know as my date approach I wish I knew someone who had done this and actually didn't find this site until after.

You're going to look great! I have a million belly pics in my phone too lol! Probably will be doubled after all is done! Good luck hun
  • Reply
Thank you Hun! yeah I think mine will double too! :-)
Hi, you will be fine don't worry!!!!! I have made this decision myself and my husband fully supports me, I don't have confidence as well, I wish I could take my kids to swim, but I can't go like this anywhere, my friends say oh don't worry just go, but of course they haven't seem me without clothes...... My parents are supportive as I give no choice :) if I decide something, they know I go for it :). But my grandma said I don't need it, I am A mother and I have to be as one:) so she said if I do this she won't come to visit me and kids when I go over to my parents, so ,,........ She will be fine I don't worry to much, I am strong!!!!!! So I live in Ireland but doing TT and Lipo back where my parents live, it's 1/3 of a price only over there, when in Ireland it's almost 7000-8000€ for tummy tuck, also if I need Lipo and everything else, it's extra:)

The big day!

So I'm up nice and early having my last meal "porridge" :-) feeling a little nervous but sooooo excited! I at cheeky slept really well last night, that will be due to the two hour hack I did with my horse yesterday! Wanted to make the most of it as I can't ride for 6 weeks after OP! So I did I stayed till the sun went down! Another hour and kids will be up so got to get them already for school. Give them big kisses and cuddles as I won't see them again till Sunday, because I'm staying in hospital for 2 night. And don't really want them coming to see me, might scare them.

So will up date once there I am getting picked up at 11.45 so should get There for 12.30 not sure if my slot time yet! As there is me and one other person he is operating on to day.

Speak soon ladies, :-D x

On the flat side!

So I'm on the flat side girls!!! :-) so so happy and my pain is bearable so that's a plus. Been able to get up and go for a wee instead of using bed pan thank god! Can't really see my scare but I will put pics up of my belly! first thing I did when waking up was as nurse to take a pitcher hahaha! Wasn't quite as clear as that but she knew what I ment.
I manage to get on and off sleep even with my stockings on and them pumping all night. Tummy pain is ok I can pull my self up and it's not to painfull. But once I got bk from bath room boy did my abs pop up to say hi, yes we hear and nice and tight! I'm on just a high (half Medes and half my feelings) I don't care about the pain at mo. Pics coming in mine :-)

Just want to say a massive thanks to everyone who gave me encouragement and advice about the tummy tuck!! U all helped my journey, and I know I still have a loooong way to go but it's so going to be worth it!

Day 2 post op back home

Back home! Keeping on top of pain killers. Started taking arnica for swelling and stool softener which I'm most worried about as I haven't been for a number 2 since Friday morning :-/ hoping they work and it's not to pain full! Apart from that family being great and helping as much as possible! Kids are little stars taking them selfs off and playing nicely together! And then there my partner, who is being a massive help! I came home to a completely scrubbed from top to bottom house. My bed all prepared and meals ready too! Love him so much! :-) moods seem a little bit more settled today! Which I'm glad about.

Went to see my ps and he looked at my scare which I'm really happy with????!!Thought it would look loads worse! My ps is very happy with my recovery I'm almost standing straight already! ???? belly button healing well and so is scar. My Ps has redressed it and I can take the dressing back off in 5 days and then I can shower! Good I can't wait! Baby wipe wash is not the best and dry shampoo isn't great! Think it's going to be a wash my heir over the sink night tonight! ????.
So I have had a really good day but now I'm back in bed and I know to it! Pain is coming back with a kick but it was worth it to get out for a few hours. Hear some pics of scare they had to be quick one before he re-dressed it. Happy healing ladies! ????

Haha I wanted too trust me haha!! But I resisted. Had to have a nap when I got home tho lol it took it out of me but it wasn't too much and did my emotions the world of good. Just looked though ur profile and omg u look fantastic!! Ur results even this early on are great!!!! Can I ask what type of garment ur wearing? And how is recovery now ur a little further long??
I figure our heads need the most healing in all of it haha! Thanks for your comments ... I am very pleased although last couple of days I've felt bit disillusioned as back to the day of surgery weight - even tho no difference in eating - I eat very healthy but it's the complete change of lifestyle - I'm a dog walker so on my feet active and walking ALL day and have gone to doing nothing. Just sitting and feeling lazy! Today I feel bigger than ever but trying not to dwell cause I know I look better and have the flat tummy and I know time will change the result.. I hate the way it all swells above the scar line so looks like a huge muffin top above really tight belt (belt being the scar!) I walked two greyhounds for half hour today at a good pace - like you I needed to get moving! That was fine and that was my first real walk out of house. I'm hoping time will take care of everything else ..... My binder is a marena comfortware www.marenagroup.com

9 day post op! First shower

So I took my first shower today!! My partner was on standby down stairs hahaha as I felt I was able to do it on my own plume my daughter really wanted to see my scare lol and sat in the bathroom why I showered waiting! Bless her she said mummy it looks really good not bad at all! Lol she so sweet! I feel my scare is very high still and I'm hoping it will fall as swelling gose down!?? Finger crossed????.

I was told to take my dressings off and that I would be able to shower but after not to redress and levee it with nothing on!! I feel so lost with out the dressing on and exposed! Haha really being careful not to bang or catch it!????

But anyway it all went well and I smell nice and my heir feels lovely!! Yaya! I think my partner is sitting closer to me too hahaha ????

After shower I was so impatient I re-measured my self! Yeas I no maybe should so soon but hear are results compared to before op!

????Hips before 39" now 40" ???? obs with the swelling!
????waist under bra before 35" now 34" 1inch lose! Yay! ????
???? wait around belly button before 41" yes 41"" ???? now 37" ???? over the moon is an understatement!! Soo happy! That's a 5" loss already and only 9 day pre op with swelling!! ????????????

Day 11

So today has been the most normal I have felt since the op! No emotional roller coaster! Have been able to move about loads more do bits of cleaning and play more with the kids! Even made us all a good home dinner!! Don't get me wrong my hubby has been great but the freezer food just isn't as good as home made stuff ;-) not that I tell him that! And first day with no pain killers!

But tonight I am sooo swollen! My back is killing me! I'm bk to being hunched over too! So had a nice shower taken some arnica and put the cream on. And relaxing for the night. Tomorrow will still be a more active day but will tone it down a little I think.

2 week mark!! :-)

So can't believe it's been two weeks! Had a really low day yesterday just because I can't do much I hate it! And I mean I can't even take the kids park with out looking like a balloon after! :-@ but I know I'm doing loads more then I was last week so I will get there slowly!

This morning I thought I would get on the scales and try on jeans Humm I know ur think bad idea only two weeks well!! To my surprise on the scales I have lost 5pounds!! And I am sooo happy as still massively swollen! And I haven't been able to exercise! Then I tried on the smallest jeans I have and haven't ever been able to were cuz they wouldn't even be close to doing up or even getting the button close enough to see the other side of the jeans lol But always kept as the whole I need to lose more weight and I will do it thing!! Well I also fit in them :-D can do them up and they are slightly tight but that's it, I think they will fit perfect once swelling gone down!!
So today is a great day for me it has given me such a boost!!

Hope ur all healing well ladies!! :-) xoxox

Hello Beautiful!!! I"m so happy ur feeling better. I wish there were better support for us RS ppl other than the internet. I mean like a real live support group system. Sometimes women need to empower other women. It's a beautiful thing to see we are not alone in a time of need from the unknown. I'm sending positive vibes out to you always. I pray your recovery is a fast one. And always remember to take it a day at a time. I for myself had to stop logging on all the time and obsessing with my page and the calendar rushing time to speed things up. Sometimes, we miss the blessing behind the madness. Stay positive. kisses doll... Ivala~ =)

I know about swell hell. I have not been completely flat yet, but have had my days that are worse than others. Like yesterday since my butt decided to go to disney on sat I paid for it in sun!

I hate doing this on the cell. Lol. I was also going to say... I hope you recover from your swell hell soon and it doesn't get as bad again once u get into your routine of going to the uni

Quick update! 5 weeks and a little!

I'm 5 weeks and 4 days! Feeling great even got bk in the saddle Sunday! Only sat and walked for like 10mins lol but omg I have missed riding sooo much! It have me such a boost. Still get swollen mainly at night but it's not as bad now. So I was getting dressed and my two very old bikinis feel out of the never ending wardrobe!! So I thought what he heck! Tryed them on and hears some pics! So happy have a holiday in sep and hoping to look even better once can work out more!! Will be the first time in 10 year since worn a bikini on holiday! No regrets about the op what so ever! Was worth every penny and the lows of recovery!!
