I need so advice ladies on what I need to help me through this journey.
About me, i am 42 OMG years old i never say my age lol, i am 5'2 and weigh 140lb. I have 3 children my son is 12 and my twins daughters are 7. I am totally in love with my husband! He is my rock , soulmate and best friend. We have been married for 13 years! I have always desired a TT since always lol. So I finally build up the courage and have my handsome husband support and My Big sis support. My sissy is flying in from FL to help me and I am so grateful to have her!

Hello everyone, I am only 2 1/2 days away from my surgery date. I am so nervous and paranoid. I keep thinking what if something goes wrong, I would never want to leave my children and hubby. My husband keeps telling me to relax everything will be absolutely fine! I love him :-). I already picked up all my meds, I purchased a recliner as an early BD gift for my hubby, except I get to use it first, lol. I picked up some fresh pineapples and cucumbers to make juice to help with the swelling, after surgery. All that left is some housework and Ironing at least 2 weeks worth of my kids school clothe. Oh and my sis arrives tomorrow :-). I am so glad she is coming a few days in advance, at-least we have sometime to hangout in the city before surgery. I will post again tomorrow and let you guys know how I'm feeling. God Bless to those who are having surgery and happy healing to those on the flat side.

Well ladies, will post again tomorrow going to bed . Happy Healing and Blessing to those who will be having surgery :0)

Ok ladies I am about 12 hours away ! I can not believe the day is almost here. OMG , I am a nervous wreck, I had some many things On my to do list before surgery and was able to complete most of them. I went shopping for some nice PJ since this will be my new wardrobe for the next couple of days. My sis and I got our shopping on!! That is a ritual when she comes to NYC, lol , had lunch and then picked up my girls from school. I packed my bag PS said to bring my PJ so I can wear them to go home since I will be going home after the procedure and my estimated recovery time is ? My surgery will last about 5 hrs, HS! So ladies I have to blow dry my hair now just got out the shower and try to get some sleep (yeah right), thank you so much for you kind words and keep me in your prayers! Happy Healing and much blessing to all.

Hello everyone, post op day3, well today I went to see my PS, as you have read I have been dealing with pain in my lower abs and was really worried. My PS showed much concern and had me come in this afternoon. Thank goodness everything look well I have no infection and my pain is do to swelling, I guess I am super sensitive. I came home had an emotional melt downing my sis which I really felt bad because she has really been the best. Now after all that crying i felt much better. Maybe I just needed that, lol

Ok I just posted some pre and post op pics I am extremely swollen, hopefully by next week my results will improve, I'm just glad all that skin in gone!
Hello ladies!, today I am post op day 12. Sorry...
Hello ladies!, today I am post op day 12. Sorry have not been here for while. Well, I am finally starting to feel much better! I still have my drain in and probably won't have it removed this week do to the storm we are expecting. But it really doesn't bother me at all. Swelling is the major discomfort for the past few days. Drinking a lot of water and pineapple juice. I did have issues going to bathroom #2, but once you go Amen! My appetite has decreased since surgery but the gas pain are hell. So I have a hot cup of Anise seed tea and it really helps . So if you are suffering from gas pain drinks this tea, you can find it
in the spice section at most supermarkets. I have a hot cup after every meal. The pain I complained about on the left side of my lower ab is still there but the pain is not as bad. I guess my body is tacking it sweet sweet time to heal and I have excepted that. I had C section and bounced back in 10 days, I guess this will take longer :-(. The best decision I made before scheduling my surgery was tacking a leave of absence from work and oh boy my body is tacking advantage of the LMAO. Well ladies happy healing to all and much blessing to those who we be having surgery soon.
Hey ladies, hope everyone is healing and feeling...
Hey ladies, hope everyone is healing and feeling well! I have some new pics to share with you. I am going through swell hell aww! I wake up looking good then I'm swollen :-(
I have minimal salt intake eat alot of pineapples and cucumber , but still get really swollen threw out the day. Any other tips on how to reduce swelling ladies?
Hello ladies, I am now 3 weeks post op!!! What a...
Hello ladies, I am now 3 weeks post op!!! What a difference, I feel pretty good. I do get tired easily after doing chores but it not too bad. I am finally wearing a full body CG, aww, it tight as hell. Something to get used to. I have said my goodbyes to my Recliner :-( and have returned to my bed with my handsome husband :0)!!!! . I really did miss his scent lol. I am still not laying flat yet, but one day at a time. My scar is healing lovely on my belly and my boobs. My bruises from lipo are all gone. I am just going threw swell hell and yes ladies it is hell. I wake up on the flat side and as the day progress I get so swollen it feels like my incision wants to burst open. The CG really helps me not to feel the swelling as much. Oh I have not lost much weight :-(, maybe 6lbs, but I did not really have to much fat it was mostly skin. Happy Healing to all you beautiful ladies and Blessing for those whom will soon join us!
Beautiful ladies! I love the flat side! I am...
Beautiful ladies! I love the flat side! I am finally fitting in to most of my jeans and slacks. I still have swelling :-/ but I guess that's part of the journey . I am about 90% back to normal activities. I began exercising again, I can only walk 1 mile and 10 min on the elliptical, after that I am beat or I feel this weird pressure in my lower abs. But at least I am enjoying the outdoors agains! I was also able to tend to my handsome husbands need! LOL my wifely duties and Boy did I miss them! Now I am basically trying my very best to keep a healthy diet! I gave up Diet Pepsi,Splenda and Red Meat. This was a big step for me but in the long run it is healthier. I love veggies so that is incorporated in my every day diet. I hope to lose some more weight before the summer, at least 6 more pounds. I am currently 137, pre op I was around 145. If any of you ladies on the flat side have any suggestion on how did you lose weight after surgey please share your stories. Ok girls good luck to those who will be joining us on the Flat Side and Happy Healing! Much blessing to all :0)
Hello Chicas! I am 6 weeks post op and would like...
Hello Chicas! I am 6 weeks post op and would like to share pics, my emotions and experience .
Week #1- Day of surgery, holy shit WTF did I do !! So so much pain, while walking to the car and climbing the steps to enter my house. Hubby had to carry me upstairs to the bedroom :-( . Day 2, still in pain but only when I walked, thank sweet Jesus for Percocet ! Day3, walking a little better and starting to stand up straighter, but still in a lot of pain on the left side of lower abs . My DR had me come in to the office to check me but found nothing, so I guess I was super sensitive in that area. The rest of the week flew by, very little appetite, slept most of the day and tons of trips to the Bathroom.
Week 2#, very little appetite, slept often, still tacking Percocet every 4 hours for pain, no longer constipated :-). Developed bad gas and bloating after meals. Drank lots of hot Anise Tea. I was able to shower and standing completely straight. Oh my Drain was removed. That was not painful at all.
Week 3, the pain has finally mellowed out, tacking extra strength Tylenol, but Percocet at night. My Breast are starting to ache and still a little sore from lipo. Now swell Hell has begun! Began to do some house chores and went grocery shopping.
Week #4, no more Meds! Just when my breast hurt. Had my first glass of Wine to celebrate Easter. Had fun in the bedroom with hubby!
Wearing a compression garment all day :-/ . Swell Hell is a pain in the A. Drinking lots of pineapple and cucumber smoothies. Dr S gave the OK to exercise ! Starting wearing silicone strips on my TT and BL scars.
Week # 5 still some swelling, Oh man my stomach feel super tight after being on my feet all day. My breast no longer ache. Almost back to normal .
Week #6 I am Back! LOL, well at least that's what my husband says, went shopping in Jersey for the twins summer clothe and bought myself 2 dresses from NY & Co. Omg I m an XS :-). I am finally able to clean my house! I have Julia whom I must thank god for . she has really helped me with the kids through this journey. Julia does light daily house chores, but no one cleans like I do! I set up the backyard patio furniture of course with help and did some gardening! I will finish the rest during the week since we expect beautiful weather in the 70's.
So beautifully ladies, this has been an unforgettable Journey, I unfortunately encounter complication and thank God over came them! I often questioned why did I do this? But once I looked in the Mirror my question's where
answered. I did not do this for my husband or society, I had PS for myself ! I have always felt beautiful and confident! I just was not happy with the way I looked once I removed my clothe. I am so happy I gave myself the best gift ever beside my children ! Good Luck Ladies Happy Healing and God Bless!

I love my new body! I cant beleive how much my body has transformed! I always had a nice figure with clothe, but this is awesome. I love love love looking at myself in the mirror with out clothe. In the past I would undress in private now I undress freely when my husband is around. I am still swollen by the middle of the day but that is no comparisons to the extra skin i lived with for years. I wear a CG all day long, it helps with the swelling and I actually like the compression on my belly! Once I take it off i feel my stomache getting bloated. Does anyone have this feeling? I have new pics of my side views , these where taken in the morning since i get swollen as the day progress. Well much blessing to all and Happy Healing :-)

Hello my TT & MMO sister, I am loving this body ! I am now 8 week post op. I have very little swelling, but I still have swelling by the end off the day. I have return to my normal life style, however I do get tired easily. I am continuing to use my CG until all the swelling is resolved. I must say I feel more comfortable with it on then off. As for my breast, I am using silicone strips to fade the scar. I am a little sad that the swelling of my breast is gone because my breast are smaller. But they still look beautiful and my husband does not mind lol. Well ladies take care off yourself and Happy Healing! Blessing to those whom will join us on this journey.

Hello ladies, hope everyone is healing well and getting ready for the summer. As for myself, I unfortunately still have swelling :-( . I experience a lot of swelling around my stomache muscles and below my belly button. I guess the healing process takes time. I have maintained my weight loss of 12 pounds and hope to lose 5 more! I must say I miss wearing my Faja! It helped a lot with the swelling. But it just to hot to wear it all day. As for my BL they look really good and I no longer have swelling. Overall, I am pretty satisfied with my MMO. I just wish the swelling would go away! Well ladies happy healing and Blessings.

Hello Ladies! It been A while and I do apologize ! It's been a busy summer with my children! :0)
But let's get to the good stuff! MMO healing has been amazing! I am wearing a Bikini! I must say I still don't feel comfortable in one but my husband Made me wear one for him! LOL . I still get swelling through out the day, but it is barely noticeable. However, my stomached muscle repair is what seems to be the problem now! I get really swollen in that area, but not all the time. So I am constantly massaging that area to help with the swelling. I am finally getting back to a normal exercise routine, but I must admit doing sit ups hurt! I am trying to loose a couple of more pounds, since as you can see in my pics, I still have some back fat! I am hoping to loose 10 more pounds :-) wish full thinking! lol . Well ladies I hope you guys are all enjoying your summer and happy healing!
