Had a mommy makeover planned for Sept 2011, but decided to go for one baby instead! So, here we go again, this time definitely done having babies and ready to look great in time for turning 40 next winter! Originally I had thought of getting this surgery next summer, but with a big family wedding coming up in October and a bit of time with nothing major planned, we figured this summer is better. Although I've been thinking/researching/planning on getting this done for quite some time, July is only 2 months away, yikes!
39 years old
5'6 & currently 165lbs (plan on dropping 15lbs by surgery)
I wear a 38D right now, but very very droopy and flat. They are like sad deflated balloons.
5 Kids- Girl age 13, and 4 boys: 11, 9, 7, and 2
Married for 15 years
Would love to see more reviews & before/after pics of ladies that have bigger bra sizes before surgery. Seems most here are quite tiny! Just curious how it affects results and possibly different placement and profiles.
I have a consult with a new doctor on 5/20, and I feel pretty confident that she's the one. I spoke with the office coordinator in depth and know the price, procedures, and availability. Love the positive reviews and before/after pictures I have seen from this practice, so hopefully my consult will go as well as I expect. In this office, a tummy tuck includes liposuction of the flanks and sides, so that will be nice to get some extra contouring.
For the BA, I know she uses silicone and I want to discuss possibly going over the muscle instead of under. My boob idol is Nigella Lawson! I want a really full, low hanging, mature big-breasted look. Nothing too perky (can get that with a push up bra) or too round or too high sitting. I am not interested at all in a lift. Last dr said I was borderline, but could get away without one. I just don't like the look, so I will pass. Right now I'm guessing 500-600ccs. But, not sure if that would make me look huge or not fill out my breast tissue enough. It's so hard to tell. I also have no idea if high profile, mod+ or something else would help me achieve my goal. My plan is to bring lots of wish pics and explain my ideal and see what she says.
Biggest concerns at the moment are losing weight & weaning. I've lost 8lbs in the last month due to diet only and now I'm adding exercise with the diet. Hope to lose another 15 by surgery and then 5-10 down the road. My ideal weight is 140, under that I look pretty skinny, which isn't so great if you plan on having big ta-tas. I look good at 150 and would be fine with that for surgery, so I hope I can get there! Right now just too pudgy.
My youngest is 2 and still nursing because I"m a lazy mom and haven't weaned him! He's really down to just a couple nursings and I don't have much milk left anyway. The hardest thing is nighttime because we cosleep, so it will be a challenge. I dropped the bedtime feeding this week and it's gone well. I hope to work on nighttime nursings next week and then last to go will be the nap. I asked about this when I called and was told it will be ok to wean this late and close to surgery, so I really hope that's the case when I talk to the doctor. Would hate it if they tell me if I have to wait 6 months! Since I'm not producing much, I figure in 2 months I should be dried up anyway.
I have added some lovely before pictures of myself. I will add my wish pics soon!
