32 Years Old Two Children TT & Septorhinoplasty - London, GB

Hate the way my tummy looks after having my second...

Hate the way my tummy looks after having my second child, have worked really hard on it so ready to get rid of this loose skin and my horrible outie!....plus I've also hated my nose so really looking forward to having a smaller narrower nose...quite anxious about not being able to breathe out my nose for a while agh! ????

Countdown!

Omg!....my operation is next Saturday and I'm starting to feel the anxiety and nerves now!....mainly about the sickness that I may or may not feel...I have a huge fear of sickness!....have spoken to the anaesthetist who has assured me hell do everything he can to try and prevent it but he can't guarantee....next Saturday is the big day just hope I wake up feeling no nausea!...

Surgery been put back to the 30th April!...bit annoying!

Still least I can get a few more sessions in the gym done so I can be as fit as poss going in for surgery!...

Operation on Thursday!

Time has flown!, can't believe it's only 3 days away!!...I've been into the hospital and checked out the room I'll be in and had a chat with one of the sister nurses there who was so nice, made me feel a lot less anxious about the whole thing....the other nurse there took some blood and I think she may have hit a blood vessel as my arm swelled up and went black and blue where she took it!...not a good start!...lol!...im all stocked up been taking my vitamin c, zinc and arnica...got my antibacterial scrub that I'll use from tomorrow to prevent infection....I am just feeling anxious about how I'm going to feel waking up now...head wise and pain wise...???? I just hope time flys again and it'll all be over before I know it!...and then I can start to enjoy the results ????

Tomorrow is the big day!

Well I'm all packed with all the items people have recommended on here...electric toothbrush, ricola sweets to suck, arnica gel, button up pyjamas, drawing gown etc...magazines...feeling okay just moments of anxiety about leavings two little ones for 2 nights and about how I'm going to be walking down to theatre and waking up etc....hopefully all will be fine ???? not feeling too excited at the mo just want to get it out the way....then I can hopefully get excited about the end result. I am looking forward to saying goodbye to my baggy skin, horrible belly button and getting a lovely new nose ??

At the hospital

OMG!...I'm here and feeling the nerves now!...anaesthetist said I might be out for up to 5 hours!!...say a few prayers for me...I'm due in theatre at 11...x

I made it!

Little out of it...will update later.

Pics

Sore and blocked up! But not too bad ????

Bolsters removed...

Was a bit uncomfortable...

Awful night!

I made the decision to stop taking the narcotics I was feeling really sick, took some anti sickness and by 1am the sickness had gone but then I had major insomnia!....couldn't get comfortable, incredibly dry mouth, woke up like I was choking because of dry mouth and must have closed it for a min....feel terrible ???? pain is quite bad in tummy but I'd expect it to be because I'm not taking the narcotics any more. Hope to get some sleeping pills today that won't make me feel sick ????

Spoke to hospital...

Feeling a bit more relaxed they told me I'm doing really well as I'm pretty much walking up straight and swelling is going down in my face. They've prescribed some sleeping tablets and I'm taking a different anti sickness so hopefully I'll feel better tonight! Fingers crossed!. Belly looks fantastic from what I can see so far btw!....

Tummy tuck pictures

Bit swollen....still got compression garment on as can't keep the Spanx outfit they gave me on; it's sooo tight it doesn't help the sickness so have been told leave it off for another week....

Better night last night...

Had a better night last night sleeping wise, didn't have to take the sleeping pill in the end...had my humidifier on which massively helps with the dry mouth!...felt sick again last night woke me up at 1am quite bad but managed to control with sickness pill...not sure why?...maybe lack of eating a lot and anxiety with the nose....everything always seems worse at night. Managed to get my Spanx on today which is great!...they don't feel as tight as they did so some swelling must have gone down. Will post a pic later of my very sexy Spanx outfit...not!...lol!

As promised...

My lovely Spanx!

First night I slept pretty much all night!!

Had a great night last night!!....it's so true that you turn a corner on day 5....I can smell and I can breathe through my nose!....woohoo!!....I woke up once at 2am with acid so I took my Spanx off and that helped just put my binder back on instead. I think I worked the sickness out....I think I needed to taper off the sick meds as if been given a lot of them in hospital and in quite sensitive so I took 1 to prevent it before going to bed and it seemed to work....so much happier now :)) thanks for all you're support everyone....it really helps being on here....lots of happy healing and thoughts to everyone xx

Just had cast taken off nose....

Having my cast of my nose wasn't very pleasant I have to be honest!...it was quite painful and scary BUT I am soooooooo happy with the results!!!....I cried when I saw my new nose!!....can't believe it!, Mr Cadier has exceeded my expectations....my belly is amazing!, my belly button is incredible!!!...can't believe it's mine!...it's better than what I had before child birth!....can't describe how happy I am :)))) thank you Mr Cadier for changing my life and thank you everyone on here for giving me the courage to do it and the power to get through the recovery....thank you, thank you, thank you!!! xxx

Pictures of nose....

There's obviously still a lot of swelling and bruising to go down but you can already see a massive difference! It's only day 6!!!....

Anyone know how to change the 'not sure'

To 'worth it' I click edit and change it and then save and it doesn't do it??....

Feeling better than ever!

Face on, hair washed after 8 days urgh!!..., feeling like my old self!...

Had dressings removed off tummy...

All went very well, healing nicely apparently...still got the steri strip on which have to leave on for another week then I can put silicon strips on...very happy it all :) lovey belly button!!....

More nose pics...

Getting better everyday....

More photos....

Tape came off and have been wearing the silicone strips since yesterday....I couldn't wear them for a while as the incision was still scabby....haven't really had much swelling any more and bruising has all gone more or less....very happy!
Salisbury Plastic Surgeon

Mr Cadier and his anaesthetist Dr Aquilera have been nothing short of amazing!....they are so attentive and caring to your needs; I am a bit of a nightmare patient but they never once made me feel that way. I had a long surgery and I wasn't sick!....I felt happy and I wasn't in pain....they've both seen me twice since...can't thank them enough...I wouldn't go anywhere else now. The best!.
