I had breast augmentation 7 yrs ago and recently...

I had breast augmentation 7 yrs ago and recently one of my saline implants slipped out of its pocket. This is causing discomfort and does not look the same as the other. In consulting with my PS about fixing this problem, I mentioned liposuction and he advised that because of the sagging skin I would not be happy with the results and would eventually return for tt.

This forum has been very informative and gave me the inspiration and strength to proceed. Tues April 26th is the day to begin my flat tummy journey. I just want it to be over to start healing and am focussed on finally having a flat tummy instead of this muffin top which I hate.

Concerned though tonight, slight sore throat, hope I'm not getting a cold. I am ready for surgery and don't want to have to postpone, will check with my PS tomorrow and hopefully this is just allergies. Please just be allergies :). Wish me luck.

All is a go for tomorrow at 10am, spoke to nurse...

All is a go for tomorrow at 10am, spoke to nurse today and she said as long as I do not have a fever, flat tummy her I come! Spent all day getting things in order, recliner is here and I just love it. Thanks so much for that advice, it will certainly make getting up and down easier. Had a healthy dinner, vegetables and grilled chicken and have been drinking lots of water. I am going to eat my chocolate "muffin top", not kidding, got them at Costco and they are yummy, and look forward to them being the only mt's in my life from now on. Have had a couple moments of doubt, mostly in regards to not being able to do much for awhile, I am a very active person and not one to ask for help. I am sure this will change very soon :). Overall, I am anxious to just get it over with and begin the healing process. I am focused on the end result, even have a photo on my fridge that was taken in Las Vegas where they superimposed my head on the body of a showgirl...that's my new tummy. Hope I sleep tonight. I will update as soon as I am able.

Day 4 post op and all is good, very good actually....

Day 4 post op and all is good, very good actually. Had first bm last night and another today. Will continue with one laxative a day as long as i am taking vicodin. Am trying to use extra strength Tylenol between vicodin. I went 5 hrs last night between vicodin with a couple tylenol in between. Beginning to have stinging sensation at scar and drain site. I think this is a good sign for healing. Still get very tired easily but will take it easy even though I want to go around to clean and tidy up. Have been keeping myself entertained with tv and am grateful for royal wedding at this time. Will have shower today and wash hair, I know that will take a lot out of me. Drainage down to about 8cc most times and now some yellowish fluid is coming out, can't wait for Tues to get drain out that will really be a big step. So all in all, happy I did this and still am kind of in awe as to how fast it all came together. Can't wait to put on jeans and a tshirt without having to cover up with something to disguise the muffin top. From what I can see my scar is at a good level but truly I haven't looked too much. The numbness at belly feels really weird but I am sure this will begin to have sensation soon. So in a nutshell, to those who are contemplating or waiting for their tt day, go for it with a positive won't be sorry. Had another "muffin top" last night for dessert and those will forever be the one and only from now on. Yippee :)) Have a great day.
