Life Changing Breast Lift -Milwaukee, WI

I have wanted this ever since I hit puberty and grew strange pointy breasts. I gained weight, birthed and breastfed two children, gained some more weight, and now with the hope of a beautiful new set of breasts, I've shed it all. I'm so ready for this. What I have now is something akin to two socks nailed to a wall. They are pendulous, inconvenient, ugly, empty sacks of skin. I consulted twice...

33 Years Old, Two Kids, Time to Feel Good Again. Brookfield, WI

This has been one of the hardest things I have done. The first week was awful and I kept questioning why I did it. Once I got the drains out, I felt like I turned a corner. Having two little ones makes recovery a lot harder, so make sure to have help. Although the pain has been excruciating, everytime I look down I am so thankful I did it. Dr. Sonderman worked magic and did a great job. I...

FTT&BL - Milwaukee, WI

I have been wanting a breast lift/reduction for years! I've also decided to undergo a FTT as well! Some would refer to this as a mommy makeover, however I've never had kids :( With that being said I'm embarrassed to be having the TT but it's needed! I'm thankful for this site and look forward to meeting new friends in the process! I'm curious what type of compression garments people have...

Loving them so far! - Milwaukee, WI

Well, it is the night before my breast augmentation and a million things are running through my mind. I'm not sure how I will ever get to sleep tonight. I guess I'll start at the beginning. I'm 32 years old, 5'4", 128 lbs, no kids. I had always told myself if I graduated nursing school I would buy myself boobs! LOL So when graduation came I began my research. I did tons of research before I...

Bikini Time!

I had gastric bypass in September 2006, and lost 110 pounds, which I have successfully kept off. I was a fit child and teen, but two c-sections and a back surgery led to weight gain that I never seemed to be able to get off. That weight loss was great, but left me with a bunch of excess skin in my abdomen that just won't go away, and I still get the "pregnant" questions, even though I am 46...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

An Experience Well Worth It! – Brookfield, WI

My rhinoplasty went very well - I looked worse that I felt. I followed all of the pre op procedures and post op - if I could give anyone any advice it would be to tell them - ice ice ice - the ice pack that they gave me at the hospital I used over and over again. As a teacher, I had the procedure done a few weeks before school - so believe it or not - I did not look bruised once school started.

Fine at Forty - Milwaukee, WI

Hey ladies, I'm a 39 year old mother of four, 19,16,13 & 11. My first born was 10lbs, and I was only 120lbs at the time, I gained 70lbs with him. I would always lose the weight, but the lose skin never left. When my second child was 1, I was diagnosed with cancer, underwent chemo and radiation, and was left with the right side of my tummy and buttock smaller than the left. I've dealt with the...

6 Weeks into Recovery - Milwaukee, WI

I had saging skin around my upper eye lids and went to see the plastic surgeon. We discussed what would work best for me and ended up with a brow list. I am so happy with the results and it's only been two weeks. I feel younger looking and more refreshed and awake. I thought I would go back to work after a few days, but the bruising was bad enough that I didn't leave the house for a week.It's...

My TT Journey, just one mommy trying to get her body back

I am 31 and a mother of 2. Like many people on here my babies did quite a number to my body. I am left with a flap of skin and fat and rests on my legs when I sit down to go to the bathroom :(. I never thought a TT was in the near future for me until this past summer out of the blue my parents sat me down. They told me they know how much my stomach bothers me and they know that with being a...
