I've been wanting ba for years because my boobs...
I've been wanting ba for years because my boobs have always looked soo deflated, they have looked deflated since I got them in the 7th grade. I like to call them pancake boobs. I'll be going from a small C to a mid D. Ive always been over weight my entire life and when I was 25 decided to do something about it. I was 215 at 5'8 and I went down to 185... stayed that way for a few years then decided to lose more weight. Started going to the gym and believe it or not I now a marathoner :) I still weigh a lot tho. Im still around 185. On my second weightloss journey I actually went down to 170 but didn't have nearly the amount of muscle I have now, but trust I could still stand to lose some weight. That's where the TT comes into play. I hold alllll my weight in my mid section and its saggy nasty fatty skin. If I lose more weight it will look the same. Ive been wanting the tt for at least the last 6 years but its soo expensive and I always think im gonna lose more weight. Which I have come to terms with that I am going to stay this weight. .... but I am sooo ok with it. I wear a size 10/12 I like how I look except for my boobs and tummy. I work out regularly and watch my diet 5 days out of 7. So after coming to terms with myself I decided to go for it. I set my date in early November for Feb 3rd. two weeks after my 3rd marathon :) Im soo excited and I can't wait to see what I look like with no belly and nice boobs! It will be a first in my life!!!
3 more days!!!
I am over the top excited about this surgery and cannot wait. Im not nervous about something bad happening like dying during surgery like some people... i just get a little worried that my expectations are too high or that my scar will be horrific or that my boobs will be too big and ill look fat. The whole point of this is to look thin!! I forgot to mention on my first post that I will also be getting lipo on my sides in the armpit area and lipo in my inner thighs aaaaand a crescent lift on my boobs. Lots of fixing I know :/ I just cant wait to finally be happy with my body and to be able to wear a freakin bikiniiiiiii!!!!!! People sometimes look at me funny when I say im a runner/ marathoner and run about 10 big races a year. They look at me funny bc of the extra layer of fat I have.... WELL NOT ANYMORE!!! LOL. Okay thats enough venting :)
today is the day
Its 630 am and im sitting in the ps office and my palms are sweaty lol....
on the flat side!!!
Okay ladies... yesterday sucked sooo bad. I cried a couple times, I was just emotional and merely getting up from the hospital bed into the wheel chair and again from wheel chair to car I was sooo nauseated. But couldnt vomit. My mother was talking care of me and let me just say SHES AWESOME! she made me veggie soup that I just didn't want to eat but had maybe a half of cup. Eating makes u recover faster! Anyway the insicion is what hurts but it's weird bc it feels like menstrual cramps not a cut. The doc ended up doing lots of lipo on my sides and lower back and my insicion was long. Wrapped almost all the way around except the small of my back. I trust my ps so im ok with that. He also did lots if lipo on my inner thighs and a tiny bit on outer. He said he was just gonna take out a couple table spoons to smooth it out. My breasts are more tender today than yesterday but thats the least of my worried bc I finally have boobs!!!! And I was able to get up last night and today, which I think is a good thing. Tomorrow I go back to see him and will def take pic's. Right now I cant see a thing because im all wrapped up.
3rd day post op
Im still in bed and sleeping most of the day but its getting better. I had my sis take this pic when I went to the ps today. Nurse is who saw me not the ps. She said every thing looked good. I did say something like that I was still fat and she said noo ur just swollen then she said either way this is waaay better than how u initially were... im exhausted good night ladies
4 day post op
Day 4... moving around a lot more now and I actually want to eat. Worst par6 is that im uncomfortable and how swollen I am. My entire body is swollen and so I dont think its fair to post more pics. I will when I bathe tomorrow!!! Can anyone please give me some words on encouragment. :/
My lower back is killing me like you would not believe!!! Maybe its bc I already had some lower back issues who knows. Im hoping I recover a lot faster. Still get super exhausted aftet getting up and moving but I am getting up like 5 or 6 times at least today. I really wish I could take these drains out. They hurt so much and I cant pull my garment up all the way bc of it, which makes me wonder how well my inner thigh lipo is gonna look.
9 days po
Feel so much better. Took these pics before my shower this morning. A shower I took alone might I add :) my boobs are starting to look better, not as long and droopy, like for the first un veiling. what do you guys think? Am I healing pretty well? I think the doctor did a really good job, even though I'm not as tight as some pics I've seen of others. I also have never had a true waist, always been straight up and down which I'm perfectly fine with.

I feel so awesome guys!!!! I took my dreaded drains out yesterday and the doc said im healing just great. He said by march im gonna be perfect and that it looks like ive already gone through all my swelling. So none of that 4 wk swelling for me.. hopefully :) ive never had an hour glass figure so I dont necessarily want that, I just want a flat tummy. Thr doc took 7 whole pounds of skin from my tummy and 5 pounds of lipo from inner thighs and sides/flanks/under armpit. My inscision is pretty extended but I dont mind. I still cant stand up completely straight even tho the doc said I should be able to. The last two weeks werr the most emotional weeks ever. I cried more than I really ever do but it was soo worth it. In two weeks I go to back for another check up and will let yall know whats going on
