Mommy Makeover Needed! Stats: 35 Year Old, Plus Size, 5'7", About 215 Lbs, 2 Kids, 2 C-sections, Short Waist, 38C Bra

I have been dreaming of the possibility of a mommy...

I have been dreaming of the possibility of a mommy makeover since I first heard there was such a thing, about 8-10 years ago. Now my dream is on the way to becoming reality! I added as many key terms as possible in my title - not sure if it helps the search function, but hopefully so. They are keywords I have used during my info search that apply to me so I could find people with similar bodies and see their results. I will work on posting "before" pics soon. Sorry for such a long post, but I wanted to include as much detail as possible.

Currently:
Waiting on my pre-op appointment on March 23rd 2017, and surgery date of April 6th! I originally was going to have my pre-op and surgery this month, but had to reschedule due to needing more time to come up with the funds. I have about 4 months left to go, and I know time will fly by fast. I'm having a full tummy tuck, liposuction to the abdomen and flanks, and a breast augmentation with no lift needed. The implant we decided on at the time of consultation is a Natrelle moderate plus, 616 cc, same size in both sides. I don't have the paperwork in front of me so I rounded off the expected cost of everything.

My consultation:
I had my consult in December 2015, with the expectation that I'd have my surgery by the end of 2016 (rescheduled for March/April 2017). I had been searching for info and browsing pictures online for years. It was one of those things I figured would never happen. Then last year, the subject came up while talking to my husband. He said if it I really wanted it, lets look into it. So I looked online for plastic surgeons near my area that offered free consultations. I wasn't sure if I'd need to shop around, but I wanted to see a surgeon and have them assess me and give me an idea of the cost. I found Dr. Edwin Pittman online, and browsed through the before/after pics on his website. I liked what I saw, and made the appointment. His office is only an hour and a half away from my home, so I was fine with making the drive. We live in a small town with no local options anyway. My husband went with me to the consult. I walked into the building and felt very at ease. The atmosphere was comfortable, and his staff members were very warm and friendly. I felt very comfortable with Dr Pittman also. After meeting with Michelle and getting a quote worked up, I knew in my heart that I didn't need to see anyone else - my decision was made! I scheduled the original appointment and made my down payment. As the appointment drew near, I realized I needed to reschedule. I called to reschedule for the new date, and spoke with Michelle again, who was just as friendly and helpful as when we met with her before.

My body type:
Above average height at 5'7". I am somewhere in between a medium and large body frame, probably more large than medium. I'm all legs and short waist. I tend to gain most of my weight in the middle. I weight about 215 lbs right now, and I wear size 16-18 jeans depending on the brand and style. XL-XXL shirts. My bra size is a 38C. I have 2 kids, ages 14 and 12, and both were c-section babies. Besides being overweight in general, I have a "mommy pouch" that folds over my pubic area a couple of inches.

Some background:
Lifetime member of the weight roller coaster club! I have hated and been uncomfortable with my body all of my teen and adult life. I was always looking for the quick way to weight loss - I just knew that the skinnier I got, the happier life would be. But diet pills only work for so long, and the weight would just come right back. No matter how much weight I lost, I still hated my body. Instead of working with what I had, I was too busy wishing for the impossible - to be shorter, skinnier, have a cuter butt and bigger breasts, etc etc etc.

A couple of years ago, I'd gained all the weight back from the last time I was using Phentermine through one of those "Doctor's Diet" programs. I decided to join a gym with a coworker and learn to strength train. I easily began building muscle, and it felt good to feel toned and strong, even though I didn't lose any weight and was still "fat". I fell off the wagon for the past 6 months and I have started going back to the gym. I'm hoping building my strength will help me recover a little more easily from the surgery.

Wish pics

I found a couple of pictures online. The first one is a picture of the boob size/look I'd like to have, and the second is a mommy makeover before/after that I would be happy to have the after result. Her before is similar to my current state.

Dr. Pittman and his staff have been wonderful! I feel that my surgery is in very capable hands :).
