On July 25 2012 I will begin my Journey on getting a mommy make over. I am 44 years of age. In fairly good shape. I recently had an Implant deflate doing boot camp work out. That gave me the incentive to do my abdomen and a little lipo on my back.
My Doctor wants to do a reconstructive surgery on my breast on July 25 2012 then wait to heal 10 weeks. ughh.. He wants to take more extra skin off so the new implants wont sag or drop.
Then I wait till October to get the implants put back in and do the Tummy tuck. Im gonna try for September... ILL keep writing on my procedure and healing process. A little anxious.

Today im home just finished having a mastectomy....

Today im home just finished having a mastectomy. They cleaned me out... one had ruptured a month and a half ago. Im really happy that that's done. Now I have to wait 10 weeks to have my tt/ lipo and new implants put back in.

I was so nauseated coming out of surgery yesterday/ dizzy. Today is much better. Im taking tylenol and advil for swelling. The doc says Im at a b cup and will be ready to go back to d's later.

Im even more scared now to feel the pain of the surgery for the tt. Yesterday i had my hubby stay home and he had to do everything, i dont know what Im going to feel when i have the tt. O boy.

PO 6 days. All is going good. incision is low, boobbies are kindda huge. Lipo doesnt even hurt. Tomorrow I have my 1st Follow Up visit with Ps. My question is my belly button seems to be closing shut. also do I need a tighter compression garmet. Hope to get drains out only filling to 25 cc every 24 hours. cleaning incision feels so unreal like out of body experience. Every thing still feels kinda numb. Posting pics.

Hey Flower! You look wonderful! Did anyone answer the dog ear question for you yet?
  • Reply
HI Cherrybabi! Nope.....not yet:)
OK I will try to explain it. A dog ear are folds of skin and fat that develop on your sides after a TT. They are called dog ears because they hang off your side similar to how a dog's ears look when they are pointing down. You can do a google search for images to get a better idea. Hope this helps! :)

Good after noon fellow TT's!! I am ready to go to...

Good after noon fellow TT's!! I am ready to go to the super market ....Buy myself..... im in sweats and still have one drain inn. Please nobody hit my stomach.

You look awesome. I can't feel anything yet when I touch the tummy skin...it is really bizarre! A few of my girlfriends had the MM and said it took 6 mos to get feeling back! When thighs swell from lipo...can't feel those either. You look great!!

PO 15 days!!!! WHUU HUU The last drain is finally out! Feels so much better they removed it even though it still was draining at 30 cc every 24 hours. 2 weeks is long enough.
Got a new compression garment looks like a panty girdle "step 2". Much more mobile and cant wait to exercise.

I have a hair appointment tomorrow I hope we can get through the day ok........ Driving is no problem, cooking no problem, and grocery shopping no problem. Yay its the small things that you get to appreciate again.... small steps gang one day at a time.

Oh and the hubby came home with a cold he's still in a separate bedroom and we are both in 2 different parts of the house... so sad........ maybe this weekend we can have some fun:)

Hi stepk, Right before the surgery i was probably a 34 c I had my old im[plant rupture and deflate so on the left boobie it is deflated on the left side it is a old 450cc. I have had 480's in 1995 then went to an overfill to 550cc 2000 that was to big I wore them for 6 years then did a reduction 2005 and Lift to small c big B I hated it. Made them 480 cc 2007 Then they delated Ruptured i ripped a pectoral muscle...... sooo I am @ 480 and I am the most comfortable here. I still dont know what size yet as far as 34 dd?? some bras will be DD some will be just D depends on the bra. what a crazy journey.... and the crazy thing is when i turn 60 im taking um out again and just having another lift.... if nothing goes wrong with these.
You go girl in the jeans..Results look great...did you end up with silicone or saline?

5 weeks post op and feeling 90% . I am having no dump truck feelings in which I know what some of you were talking about. It is when this tight feeling comes over you abdomen mostly the upper gets tight and it is a very heavy feeling very awkward but not sore just bizarre.

The tiredness and shortness of breath is gone and I can actually go hiking and do arm work outs again.

Using the Bio-oil once in a while and sometimes I just leave it natural. I love it and I would do it again.

Pictures to follow. Happy healing gang...

3 Months post op from Tummy Tuck, Lipo on flanks, Breast lift and Augmentation.

Its getting better everyday! Yay the tiredness is gone the out of breathness is gone and life is back to normal. I can actually say at 3 months you finally feel Good.

I am able to jog, work out, and get the deed on...... just fine.

The healing is going good.... some days I have the tightening in my upper abdomen and in the lower abdomen, right above the incision under the belly button. It is still hard where the incision is right in the middle,
Im assuming that will go away. I sill have the SLIGHT numbness on my right hip/ thigh just a little.

Nothing I cant deal with. I know it's slowly going away, compared to the first few weeks.

My belly button is cute pretty tiny. Its all good... I do-not wear a compression garment or a bra to sleep in. I am going solo.

I know everyone is different and this works for mua. I do have a follow up in January with my PS.

Tomorrow I am of to Hawaii cant wait to wear my bikini lay in the sunshine and just relax.

My opinion is if anyone decides to go with this type of procedure make sure you have the time to heal and stay calm/ positive.

Happy healing to all and good luck to those who want to be on the flatter side. Its a beautiful thing:)
