I had my consultamt with Dr. Vincent Naman today....
I had my consultamt with Dr. Vincent Naman today. I have decide to geta breat reduction goung from a 42dd to 36 C. I also asked him to give me a tummy tuck because I didn't want my stomach to look huge after the reduction. I am considered a Plus size girl wearing sizes 14/16 so 18 depending on how its made. I am more on the curvy side. I will come bak with more updates and pictures after I have the surgery on December 1st.
I am super nervous but excited as this will be my birthday gift to myself I will be the big 40 on December 5th.
A few pictures
Ok so I decided to upload a few pictures. I pray my surgery goes well on Dec 1st. I can't wait for these breast and stomach to go down.
One week left before the big day pre/op
So I had my pre/op was excited to step on the scale and see that I am down 14 pounds. So I got my instructions and meds. I will have to take 10 shots of Lovenox to help prevent blood clots. They go by your age and weight so I start the shots the day before surgery. I am so nervous but can't wait to see my new body.
5 days until my surgery date
Got the call from my ps office today that my blood work came back good. And to show up on 12/1/15 at 7:15 am. I was instructed to make sure the night before to take my Lovenox shot and to place my nausea patch on the back of my neck to help with nausea. I am so nervous and excited to see my new body. I'll be bringing in my 40th birthday on 12/5/15.

Well had a little scare on Tuesday my incision started to bleed. Saw my ps today he assured me that everything is alright. He said it was just extra fluid build up that cases the incision to bleed and that it should clear up by Christmas. My breast are doing well healing good. I wanted to add a few pictures of what I look like so far in my dresses.

Well I still have a small incision that's still draining a little. I am able to get around a lot better. Stomach is still sore. My breast are fine I started using the Palmers scar treatment oil on them yesterday. No treatment for the tt scar yet as o am still waiting for it to heal
It's been a month!!
So the swelling is going down and it's been a month. I still have a small draining from one of my tummy tuck incisions. My breast are healing well they are still sore and my tummy is still numb. I will attempt to go back to work on Monday 1/4/16. Overall I love that my stomach is not huge and I love my small breast. Can't wait to get into the gym to work on these arms, legs and back fat.
It's been 5 weeks
So my incision that was draining is finally starting to close and stop draining. I ordered an extra Vernoquie garment from my ps. So I wear that while at work it really helps with the swelling. When I get home and take the garment off my tummy swells up. I still have soreness and my breast from the reduction are sore on my sides I guess from wear the garment or my arms rub it. Over all I am one happy lady!! Still feels unreal to not have a big belly!
6 week update
Had my six week check up today I noticed on the left side of my stomach that is very hard the doctor looked at it and said that he could either be scar tissue you maybe fluid buildup or fat necrosis process so I have to follow back up with the doctor on February 10 overall they said that my results look great
