All most 2 years since mommy makeover

Hello I have been looking at getting a tummy tuck...

Hello I have been looking at getting a tummy tuck for over a year now and my husband finally told me to just go ahead and book the consultation. I was so nervous just to go in there and had regrets that i was considering spending all this money on myself. All said and done my husband and I know it's the right choice for me. I have three boys, 3yr old twins and a 23 month old. With 2 C-sections back to back in a year my muscles and skin just will never get back to normal. I am over weight 5'9 210 but i have always been confident to were a bathing suit top with shorts. Now i live in Key Largo it's hot all year round and I'm sporting a moo moo. I am done having kids and do not want to wait any longer to do something for myself. My appt is for 7/10/12, My mom is coming in from Chicago to watch the kids for me so that will be a great help. I am going in October to get my breast reduction done as long as i like how everything goes.

Omg why did i have to book my date so far out, now...

Omg why did i have to book my date so far out, now i have so long to think about what can go wrong. I was going to have my tt done in two weeks but my mom said she wanted to come out and help me with the kids. So i had to change my date. 43 days please go by fast.

I want to get down 10 pounds before tt but it's just not working, I keep eating. I don't know if i'm nervous about the surgery but i need to try to eat right or this will all be for nothing. Has anyone had a tt and lipo and then gained weight. I thinks ill be fine i am always with in five pounds or so. But with lipo if i gain weight does it tend to go to other areas of my body that were not lipo-d?

Ok 28 days away i'm going to try to reduce my calories and get some pounds down before tt.

My Parents just got in town and there really early. My mom said i can try to bump up my date! I really would love to do it sooner. My ps said i can do my surgery's two to four weeks apart so I'm going to do the lipo and breast reduction first and then my tt a couple weeks after.

Three days post op from breast reduction and liposuction. Very sore and tired. Csnt stand for very long before getting light headed. Will try to post pics

Tired so tired barley want to write. I was down...

tired so tired barley want to write. I was down for all most 7 hours. took about 2 days to feel alive. never was in pain just so drained and bruised from the lipo. I can all ready see a huge difference from my inner thigh lipo but not my hips and waist. weighed myself yesterday 5 days post op and was down a pound from surgery day. Not sure how much the too out from me but my boobs looks small to me there completely in a differnece place then im used to. but i love them so far and wouldnt change anything. My kids are all sick so i had to put on my big boy pants and come home and try to watch them. Its not being a easy task. I will upload pictures when my husband gets home.

Its been a little over 6 weeks since my lipo and...

its been a little over 6 weeks since my lipo and breast reduction/lift. tt is now set for december because i didnt realize how much time i actually needed to get better. I still itch on my scars and my breast are still very sore to the touch. I can pretty much do anything after the third week. my lipo is awesome im so glad i did it. my hips and waist are stilll very tight and need to be rubs out and stretched out. but otherwise i think if you want to have something done go for it and just make sure your going to a good doctor.

Had my tt on monday at noon. Got home around 7pm...

had my tt on monday at noon. Got home around 7pm was in some pain took meds and felt a lot better. i have one drain and its not bothering me at all. The pain has been nothing just tired. went to the doc the next aftrnoon and felt fine. i have been going to the bathroom walking up and down the stairs, getting the kids food made. Pretty much doing everything except picking my kids up. I didnt get my muscles tightened so maybe thats why i dont hurt as bad. I think im going to cut back on pain killers cause there making me itch, But not even 48 hours since out of surgery and this is not half as bad as the lipo and the breast reduction. this is not even compaired to my c-section.

5 days po. Felling good doing all most evertyhing...

5 days po. Felling good doing all most evertyhing cooking laundry and cleaning. still trying to lay down during my kids nap and once they go to bed im ready to lay down for the night. Pump is getting about 25 cc all day. it's really not bad i was expecting worse from everybodys complaints about it. I am down about 8lbs i started at about 209 now im 200.7 and still very swollen. i can tell a major difference and can't wait to see the results daily.

Feeling fine. I have swelling from my belly button...

Feeling fine. I have swelling from my belly button down and its hard. Doesn't bother me though. I feel back to normal or at least what i remember normal to be. Did some crunches the other day and now my stomach is so sore. The lipo sites seem to be still tender that has been 3 months and my breast lift is still very sore. inside leg lipo there is pretty much no pain just the lipo that was on my hips and waste is sore. I will do all this over again in a heart beat. Im so happy with my results. The only thing but i really dont even care is the place that my pump got pulled out is still a little open and i have a little bump there. I will take a pic. I hope every one is doing good. gg my kids are freaking out for my attention

Hi everyone 2 months post op and feel great. ...

Hi everyone 2 months post op and feel great. Still can't believe how much better i feel about myself. I am so glad i did this. My stomach is still healing under my belly button is hard and swollen still but it makes it look really flat and like i have muscle there lol. Some times i have a itch and when you scratch it you cant feel it cause its numb but im used to that from the c section. Over all great expieriance and would do it again.

Hi everyone things have been doing good. No pain...

Hi everyone things have been doing good. No pain except if i try to stretch back my stomach still cant get pulled that way. Or i cant sleep on my stomach but i am used to that from the c-sections. I have gotten down to 197 but then had guest in town and now the new pictures are at 202. Still swollen and hard around the the tt and my scars from the breast lift are pretty bad. I am using scar gaurd and it seems to be taking the redness down. My belly button scar is pretty bad to hopefully in time it will go down but still i would do the tt again. Over all feel more like myself and am very glad i didnt wait any longer

Everything is back to normal except my scars are...

everything is back to normal except my scars are painful at the ends of the breast. They are also very red. I tried scar gaurd for three months but i didn't see a difference. I also just moved out of the state so i can't go back to my doctor to have him look at it. over all would do it again but if you all ready have image issues it kind of makes it worse. Now when i gain 5 lbs i notice i'm harder on myself because i spent all this money. I am taking it one day at a time though and working on my eating habits.

1year post opt tt and breast reduction

Things have been the same since last post. The felling in my lower stomach is still a little numb and hard. My breast scars have keliods on the sides and they hurts some times. Over all i would do it again. It crazy looking back at the old pictures of myself. I'm so glad i did not wait any longer then i did.
