I am just beginning the search to fix my mom bod....
I am just beginning the search to fix my mom bod. I have always had a smaller frame, standing 5'5 with an average of 140 lbs. Since beginning fertility experimentation in 2011, I gained some weight. I was 159 at my first Ob appt. In 2012 when I was 8 weeks pregnant. I was back to that weight 6 weeks post partum (after topping out at 213, @35 weeks gestation the night before c section).
I am currently 160 lbs. Tons of excess skin, unproportionate and deflated boobs.
My fears are the cost and being able to afford without a struggle. And having constant care for my babies during the recovery process.
Any advice, thoughts, stories of inspiration are welcome!
Partial reason for my research into a Mommy Makeover. Along with deflated, unproportionate breasts.
surgery scheduled! 4/27/15
I am so excited! I will be getting a tummy tuck with muscle repair and lipo to hips. Breast lift and implants!
So anxious to have my body back. I am struggling with implant size. I was set on 495 cc silicone, mod profile. But then I tried on 535 cc and that felt good too! The nurse said the 535 look great on my body, but I'm scared of feeling TOO big (though I also don't want to wish I'd gone bigger). I could also feel the heaviness the 535 compared to 495.
I had surgery on 4/27.
My mommy makeover included:
Tummy tuck with muscle repair
Lipo on my hips
Breast lift around areola and 492cc silicone under muscle implants.
I had zero pain from breast surgery; the muscle repair was the only pain I had, and it was tolerable (with the exception of coughing, laughing or sneezing). My c section pain was worse for me.
I am now almost 3 weeks post op.
