I am a 38yr old mom of one child that is 21 yrs old. I have been battling a weight problem all my life every since my one and only pregnancy at the age of 16. I never got my body back. I had gastric wls in 2001 and that made my body better but worst with the extra skin. Now I'm about to get my body right again. It's been a long time coming. I am getting the mommy makeover that includes a breast lift no implants (I didn't want that in my body) tummy tuck with lipo to upper and lower back, abdomen, and flanks. Also, lipo to my thighs and knees. My surgery date is arriving it's May 18th, which is just a few days away. I will upload some before pictures once I take some and then write and post some after pictures.
It has been about a week and half since my surgery. Everything went well. I had the TT, BL no implants and lipo to the thighs. I like the instant results, but it's alot of swelling in the abdominal area and light brusing. I must say this it is very painful. The recovery process is the hardest. I'm slump over and the best way to describe the pain is it feel like a bus hit me. Everyday is better than the day before, but thank God for pain medication that help me get through the day. But, all in all I like the results just can't wait for the final results down the line once the swelling is down.

It's been right at 2 months and the results are great!! My tummy is definitely flat. My clothes are sliding off of me I just spent the weekend buying new clothes (fantastic for me) I love the way everything fit perfect and just look so good on me. I'm feeling much better and now I can say "I'm glad I did this". For those thinking about having a tummy tuck or breast lift do it! It's so worth it. If you considering Dr. Weiler and not sure he does his job well and his staff is so helpful with ANYTHING!! You can't go wrong with him!
