Hello to everyone out there! I've been reading the posts and really appreciate the feedback, honesty and experiences. I'm scheduled on Sept 10th for multiple procedures. I will be having a neck lift, with incisions behind my ears and under my chin, a breast reduction, and lipo of my tummy, flanks and inner thighs. The PS is also going to do a skin cut from my lower abdomen to remove skin. My muscles are firm enough so he did not recommend a tuck. I'm really a little worried about having multiple procedures at once, under general anesthesia. I'm 55 years old and mother of 3. My last pregnancy was twins and I still have a bit of the twin skin. Also, at age 38 I was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma resulting in having a complete hysterectomy and instant menopause. The doctor told me I would gain weight but I didn't believe him at the time, being a very fit and active person who works out 5 days a week. But he was right and I did gain weight. After about 15 years, my body finally has adjusted, I am not taking hormones anymore, I have lost weight (althought I am still working on the final 10). The result of all of this is my breasts have gone from a 36 B/C to 38 DD. They weren't even this big when pregnant with twins! My boobs look like my grandmothers drooping halfway down to my belly and this has really, really bothered me. So I finally decided to do something about it. My neck needs work! I feel that it makes me look heavier than I really am as I have lost the firmness and angle of my jawline with age...the rest of the face and skin are good.
I have learned a lot from the posts and look forward to your responses. I'm nervous about the anesthesia, length of surgery (5.5 hours) and mostly the liposuction. I'm worried about the recovery time! I hear so much about the pain and swelling of liposuction I almost don't want to do it!
No photos yet, but looking forward to hearing from some of you who have been through this - in particular the multiple procedure experience. Thanks much. :)
Well recommended and tops in the area.
