I did my research for a year, and found Dr. David E. Kim to be one of the best. I made an apt with him and a couple other Dr's, but honestly Dr. Kim was it for me, I admired his honesty and he respected what I wanted. Not what he thought I needed. Let's just say; He made me feel safe ;) his staff was the bomb
My self esteem hit rock bottom after seeing how after surgeries & kids changed my body. well im getting it back!!!
I did my research for a year, and found Dr. David...
Found more pictures
10 days after my Mommy Makeover
Posting up my before and after in chronological order
I say this only because not only did I have a csection, I also had a tummy tuck years before not planning on get pregnant and having my last blessing of a son. I had plastic surgeons that just scared me, and some more realistic, but not very experienced. I searched, and searched, crossed my fingers and went for it. Thank Gooodness he didn't mess me up. I still walk hunched after 2 weeks, but I remember last time I took off 4 weeks and I was 10+ years younger, and healthier. I think that makes a difference? Well that's that.
3.5 weeks Finally I can shower!!!
Started to drive my truck!
Another thing I noticed? I'm no longer hunched!! Ooh ooh (happy dance) but it took me almost a month to get there... I don't mind. I just have to remember that my breast were cut open, stuffed, my tummy was lasered open, cut apart, pulled, chopped and stitched up like a voodoo doll! Lol and let's not even mention the Lipo?! Oooooh I'm proud of my body it's healing well. We girls can go through a lot, right? Well I'm off to run some errands with my kids. Talk to you later
Going on 7 weeks
All my scars look a lot better, even TT scars, my ps is now treating my scars and I'm bandaged up still, with some bandages that I guess are better than the scar strips at Walmart? I just know it's working. My last tummy tuck took months for that scar to fade away. I really need to remember to take pictures when bandages are all off...
Anyways, let me talk about weight management oh gosh! The Dread! But I have no clue where else to ramble... I'm only 4 lbs lighter, with my healing and being lazy! I think I should be a bit smaller by now? I mean don't get me wrong, I walk around drive my awesome truck around, and clean this house as vigorously as my body allows, but there's days where I take advantage of having my two older girls and my hunny to help out and I sit and watch some shows that now I'm addicted to. Lol
Plan; Tomorrow it's back to No alcohol "sigh" and less carbs and of course the main thing I dread most of all Cardio daily!
Besides my weight complaint I've noticed a difference. I have a waist, flatter tummy, my c section scar- long gone, perky boobies, and I can't wait till my period is gone to post up the new and improved lady bug over here ;-)
2 months preop!!! With some swelling...
I was doing just great, until this weekend. I decided to go camping, and then enjoyed the beach with my kiddos! It was actually really fun, being able to dig and make castles. Go on walks, laughing and just enjoying nature before my kids go back to school.
On my drive home I started to feel my flanks started swelling and hurting a little, yesterday and this morning have been a pain in the butt!! Literally! Lol
Well I'll post up my pictures so I can show my scars, my swelling, but the difference is still outstanding ;) oh.. I got a bit sunburned too! Life is great
Dr. David E. Kim is very professional, courteous, realistic, listens well and answered every question. His staff were very patient and helpful. My assigned nurse Cindy was very gentle, was so helpful, and professional as well. Thank you all
