So I've been thinking about getting a tummy tuck...
So I've been thinking about getting a tummy tuck for years, now ever since I had my daughter six years ago. It's been a process going back and forth within myself but I have finally decided to put myself first and get what I always wanted. Spent my whole life giving others what they want and need and putting myself last and it's about time I put myself first. So with that said I have decided to get this procedure done along with BBL and liposuction.
I'm in pretty good shape. My weight has been up and down ever since I had my daughter but at this point I am very focused on getting back in shape fully and I think now is the time to get these procedures done.
My appointment is February 8th to see the doctor again. I have saw him the first time in July 2015 but did not follow up but as I said now I am very certain that I want to get the procedures done and therefore February 8th is my next appointment where hopefully we can schedule the surgery for the end of April. I am ready, I am excited, I can't wait, I've been doing a lot of research, reading a lot of profiles on this site, YouTube, just watching people journeys and I know it's going to be a painful long process but I also know it will be worth it in the coming months.
I'm a hot mommy now but I want to be a hotter mommy... Lol
I booked my mommy makeover surgery for April 26th 2016. I will be officially receiving a tummy tuck, liposuction and bbl. I am so excited I can't wait. I am going with doctor Joseph Alkon in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
So I am already in semi shape so I'm hoping with these procedures done I will have the most amazing looking body I could possibly dream of. My waist is semi barbie, my booty is OK I just need a little push and I think I would have a killer body so fingers crossed and I can't wait to see the end result.
Started buying some things I will need post op.....I'm so excited to finally be getting something done that I've always dreamed of.
Yes my fellow real self family I am posting wish Pic...my body is semi close to these pictures I just need a little enhancement lol.... hopefully after surgery and the months go by and I get back in the gym and the swelling goes down and everything goes where it's supposed to go and everything heals the way it is supposed to heal I will look like these woman and I'll be so happy.
At my biggest crying my pregnancy I was 220 pounds then I lost weight and went down to 170 my smallest and looked fabulous..... But I still had that extra skin on my stomach even though it shrunk....i had a crazy year and a half and gained back weight.... So right now I am 195....i had planned on losing 15 more pounds b4 sx but the doc told me I'm at the perfect weight and not to lose any more if I want good results for my BBl...so I will just focus on weight lost after the sx ....but add you can see I'm in good shape and don't got much fat to begin with just loose skin on the stomach.... I carry weight well
Lymphatic drainage massage
So after researching lymphatic drainage massage online for days trying to find a good place to go that's also reasonable in price and close to home I found one place. I found it on Groupon and I've been there before actually to get a foot massage and it's a beautiful clean nice place so it only makes sense that I get this Groupon deal and get my lymphatic massages. so here is their website the prices are great and I hope this helps someone else that's looking for somewhere to go in the area:http://arcanajuventa.com/services/
Exactly 30 days to go!!!
I'm so excited.... It's almost time. 30 days to go and counting
25 days to go!!!!
I'm so excited and ready for this change....I lost 50 pounds before and after a rough year and a half and entense break up I gained back 45 pounds....:( but now it's my time to get back on track and focus on being my best self....these procedures will jump start my confidence and allow me to be focus and disciplined again because I wont have unnecessary skin and fat holding me back...LETS DO IT
So tomorrow April 11th I'll be going for my pre-op check up and making my payment in full for my mommy makeover...I am so excited and a little bit nervous but this is not my first time in the rodeo. I've had a breast reduction before and a C-section so I'm pretty much have an idea of what to expect for recovery.... PAIN LOL.... but it's time for change for the better and I can't wait to be on the flat side, the snatched side, the hot ass mama side!!!! Also over the months of being on this side and seem different outcomes I have many many questions to go over with Dr. Alkon and some wish pics that I will be showing him because I better get what I paid for!!
It's official 4/26 it's going down
So yesterday I went for my pre-op and everything is good to go....I made my final payment and spoke to Dr. Alkon...i asked everything I wanted to and needed to after doing some of the research and he has reassured me that my body has great potential to look absolutely amazing (which I already knew lol) and my results should be everything I ever wanted and now it's 2 weeks away and I'm just excited and I can't wait....the countdown begins!!!!
Exactly 1 week to go
So it's almost here.... A lot of changes happening right now in my life and for the better...i'm so thankful and blessed for all I've been able to overcome....but it's now or never right!!! Let's do it, I'm about to be a #alkondoll
26 Apr 2016
Day of treatment
So it's time and I'm so nervous being around all these medical things even though I've had surgery before lol.... Soon enough I will be on the flat stomach and fat ass side
I'm here baby..... It's all done
26 Apr 2016
Day of treatment
So I made it on the flat side and the big ass side lol I'm in so much pain I never thought it would be this bad it's unbearable to the point that I cried because I knew I had no one at home to help me my six year old daughter can't help me but thank God for my loving and caring boyfriend and sister that's going to make time after they get off of work to come by and help but I will still be home all day by myself which I don't know how that's going to go but all in all I am happy it's over finally did it we shall see with results look like and I will keep you posted.
Pain pain pain!!!!!!
Day 2.... This is the most painful thing I've ever experienced
Things are getting better
So it's day 10 and I tell you I didn't think I would make it.... I regretted it and all but after a few days I began to see again why I wanted this done lol....i took it the last drain today and will begin my massages.... Now it's really recovery time!!
So at first I regretted it because I didn't know I would be so disabled that I wouldn't be able to take care of my own child and would need 24-hour help for almost 2 weeks but things are coming around and I'm getting better day by day and now I remember why I wanted to do this in the first place #alkondoll
Trying on clothes!!
So I'm loving how my results are coming along but my back is still an major issue.... It hurts so bad... Didn't think I would have back pain this bad but I tell you it's no joke... I have to return to work in a 1 1/2 weeks so things better change and soon
My belly button is not cooperating, my stomach is still swollen and tight, I still can't stand up straight, and I feel like my booty shrunk
This has been a rollercoaster!!
So I'm feeling much better. My belly button is beginning to heal, the swelling is still there but has its good days and bad days, my feet still swell a little when walk a lot, my incision is nice and thin and healing well, I still have stretch marks below my belly button but I don't care about that.....my waist is snatched and my butt has kept it size since I last posted yayyyyy.... I'm overall blessed I made it through everything because I know it's been real hard for some with healing and everything else so I am so grateful and thankful I didn't have any major complications....i still have a long way to go before I see the results I truly want but it's coming along....
Body looking great.... It's all coming together.... Overall I'm pleased with Dr. Alkon's work
Almost 3 months
So this is my last post..... overall I am extremely happy with the final results. I do wish my booty stayed the size it was around week 3 and 4 but it's okay my goal was never to have a big big booty it was to have a flat stomach so a little extra booty I'm okay with. I'm almost 3 months and here is my update
Still working on me
