I put on loads of weight after my second and last child. Thought I could loose the weight which I did but never banked on all the loose skin that was left around my tummy! Really want it gone,as it is affecting my confidence. I'm 34 years old so I'm looking at getting tummy tuck and breast reduction

Well got a letter today for an appointment with ps on 18 of sept for a meeting to discuss worries etc. T hen one on 8 oct with the nursing team. Going Spain for a week at the end of September the the next week I have my tt.. Can't flaming wait x

Breast reduction

Had my breast reduction on the 13 August 2013 & feeling great! So glad I got it done . My breasts when I was younger were always nice & small. Then at 26 I had my son they went from a c cup to a d which was ok . Then with my daughter who I had in 2009 I put 5 stone on in weight!!then put another 2 stone after. I went up to a g cup!! Anyway decided to join weight watchers and lost it all & ended up. With long, heavy, cumbersome breasts. I had rashes underneath them and had to peel them off my ribs to wash underneath. I had tummy tuck first which got rid if 4 pounds of excess skin. My br surgeon was mr dan prinsloo & he was great ! He even did me free scar revision in my belly button cus I wasn't happy with the scar. Was in hospital for 2 nights and not in any pain , just sore where the drains were. He hasn't put a bra on just a dressing ( I can't believe I'm walking round with no bra!!! But have to back Monday for clean dressing & a surgical bra. I asked for a b cup & I definitely think I've got my wish :-). Anyway I showed my husband & he says he prefers them bigger!!! Suppose he will have to get use to them... I love them & glad I did this

Hi Jooo, I am having a TT and breast lift and augmentation on Monday- only 4 days to go!! I am a Staffordshire lass- from Penkridge but live in Essex now. I am having my mommy makeover at Spire in Brentwood.
Like you, I lost loads of weight and was left with excess skin. I cant believe I am having implants as I have always had big boobs. But when I lost weight I lost the 'filling' from the top of my boobs which makes the look awful.
I have gone through the scared feelings and am now in the excited phase. I just want it over and done with now.
Good luck with your op. x

Hi guys just found this sight and so glad its not just me.... I am due to have BR and TT both on the 1st August - Any practical advise as i am so scared, probably not the best idea to look at the scars on u-tube x

Hi jooooo. No my ps did not use blood thinners either. Things r very different in the uk than America Don't be scared putting u to sleep you r asleep within a second or so and the next thing u wake up in recovery all done. Think of the great tummy u will have. X

One of my worries is that my ps doesn't use blood thinners just the air pump stockings.most of the ladies on here seem to be getting the thinners. What did u get? I'm also scared about being put to sleep as I've never had it before. X

Thanks so much! I live in stoke on Trent and I'm looking to get it done in October because I have really bad hayfever. I've had a consultation with ps Paul Davison who works within the nhs and he's going to do it. Like you I lost weight, and was left with excess skin on stomach.were you really. Nervous?? I'm a lot better than I was thanks to this site but still have worries. Glad you are doing well :-) x

Hi joooooo I'm from the uk also and love this site. I came across it last Sunday and I had my tt on Thursday 28 June in manchester. I can't believe I have finally had it done after all these years fed up of my kangaroo pouch. I've lost over 3 stone since last year and trained so hard at the gym and it still would not go. So finally I decided I wanted to go ahead. I saved some money, borrowed some of a nil percent credit card and now I am on he flat side. Although I am black and blue and walk like a 90 year old shuffling around the house I know it will be worth it. Keep in touch with ur journey. I will put some after photos on here today x

Hiya :). Yes had a consultation in may, would have had it done 3 weeks after but I get really bad hayfever and sneeze every 5 mins do he thought I should wait until October. I'm really nervous! Having tt then hopefully a breast reduction at a later date. Sooo glad I can talk to ladies on here makes me feel so much better! Did you have your procedures done at the same time ? X

Your ps is so right in scheduling when you're not sneezy. Sneezing after a TT is awful! It feels like you are getting stabbed and punched in your belly at the same time. It still hurts when I sneeze now. I had them done at the same time. My insurance covered the BR so doing both in one shot saved me $2000. The BR is less painful than the TT I think. Thank you for the compliment :). I'm really happy with my results. Just be patient. I had a lot of swelling for the first 5 wks. It took a while to see a nice flat tummy. Everyone heals and reacts differently to surgery. Being 46 I probably bounced back a little slower.
