36 Yr. Old 3 Kids Just Want to Be Comfortable in my Own Skin Again - Miami, FL

Having surgery with mel ortega in October very...

Having surgery with mel ortega in October very nervous since I'm coming from Ohio but overall I'm just super anxious and excited to finally take the next step hotel and plane booked.... Super loving fiance to care for me check I am so lucky to have him and his support thru this whole thing... I hope I can be one of Dr ortegas happy ortega dolls when it's all said and done

Me before surgery

3 months to go so excited

My pre surgery photos

I've always felt sexy up til this past 4 years I guess getting older has definitely taken a toll on me but I want to feel sexy again so come on October

Wish pics

106 days to go yes I'm counting down already

My ultimate wish pic


I was wondering if any of you ladies could help me figure out with the sagging in my breast if I will end up needing a lift also or will implants be sufficient to raise my nipples mid boob I see so many different stories on here but I haven't seen any body with similar breast I feel like a mutant ????


I'm counting dn days I am so excited I tried looking up so many different things and my nips seem so low I hope just having implants will raise them up I was thinking 350 cc would be enough I'm only 5ft tall 147lbs I have a fat ass and big thighs so I don't want to look any fatter just fuller lol

64 more days still so confused on size

I am obsessed.... Yes I spend so much time on this site looking and comparing my breast with everyone else's.. I posted a question on here for doctors 6 out of 7 recommend a lift as well as implants.. My ps did not recommend one also the ps I met here for consultation did not either so I'm gonna do implants no lift and pray that I'm not making a huge mistake... I am so worried about how they will turn out.. But today a good friend of mine who just had hers done said well anything is a improvement and she's right I may not get nipples in the dead center of my boobs like I want but I will definitely get the fullness and size increase I want besides me and my man Are the only ones who will be staring at um lol so as long as I don't end up on a episode of botched I'll be thankful.. 64 days left coming from Ohio to Miami o won't meet my ps til day of surgery so please pray for me dolls

My ultimate wish next to what the doc is up against

My ultimate wish pic and me currently hope to have a tiny waist nice curves still and big boobies.... 50 more days

49 more days

Losing sleep due to excitement... When I do sleep I have sorta weird dreams about being botched afterwards it's freaky but I have to relax and have faith

Perfect size and shape

This is a 6week post op pic of the ideal breast I'm hoping to achieve our before was similar so I really hope I have the same amazing results as she did

Boobs ortega did that look great another wish pic

Wish pics gone wild lol all these boobs I see look so amazing I hope once I get mine I will be looking at mine like I do these ones saying those are nice...

38 more days

All my nervousness has started to die dn now it's all excitement.... Just imagining my body beautiful again a flat belly no roles and beautifully designed breasts omg this wait has been so long I can not wait...

36 more days

Got a call from spectrum today sending emails to print so I can do medical clearance ekg and labs omg it's really happening one step closer to a new me.... So over the moon with excitement

35 more days

So Liz messed my date up so I'm behind a day now but no worries my surgery is set for Oct 22nd now that's a Saturday... Anybody else have surgery on a Saturday with ortega.... I am just curious.. So excited to be getting closer I just can't wait to finally be there and done already omg the excitement of it all...

She's my image of perfection

30 days til Im in miami..32 til surgery since the mix up with liz

30 days omg it's really happening I'm almost there woooooow I am so excited


At LabCorp getting labs done wasn't sure If I had to fast or not so hope everything comes back ok

Medical clearance

Well my primary care physician cleared me for surgery ekg was good and he even agreed to remove my drains if ortega can not.. He also said he will make sure I am taken good care of when I return to Ohio if any problems should occur... Makes me feel so good just knowing this thank God for him


Labs came back perfect pre op nurse said I don't need to take anything at all before surgery... I asked about Bromalian which I bought she said no you don't even need to take that so now I'm curious to know who started this pill the day before surgery and did it help with bruising and swelling.... Please give feedback

Evelyn called and sent email confirming everything is a go....

One step closer omg it's so hard to believe this time next month I'll be on the flat side with big boobs lol..... My stomach just sank when I wrote this time next month.... well I am definitely nervous as hell omg it's happening its really happening

So close

All I have to do now is try to relax.... Easier said than done....

19 days til my surgery

I'm definitely ready..... Have my bag packed and I'm just waiting til the 20th I'll have 2 days in Miami before surgery due to conflict in dates with Liz my coordinator... But that's OK it gives me time to have my hotel room turned into recovery room and everything placed where I'll need it... Plus my man and I can have a nice date night and hopefully hit the beach at least once while we are there.. I'm super excited and hopefully these next 2 weeks go fast....

16 days so in 2weeks I'll be in Miami awaiting my big day

I am so excited.. Extremely worried now with hurricane Mathew and all but I have 16 days til we fly there so hopefully it won't hit hard and will pass quickly... Decided yesterday I'm wasting my time trying to decide on cc size I'm gonna show my ps my goal pics and let him decide what I need to get there I really hope my tummy tuck isn't a horrible experience I've put it off for so long was hoping to just do a mini tuck but when this ps said full was needed I said you know what it's now or NEver and well it's now so please keep me in your payers and I will try to stay positive I will miss my 3 kids so much for those 10 days even my 18 yr old lol he will be at home hopefully taking care of the house and our cats going to school and work and not throwing any kind of parties I have to trust he knows better I've never been away from them for more than 2 days so this is a very hard thing to do... Needless to say my stress is wayyyyyy up but I'm letting go and letting God...

Man hope this storm passes fast and isn't to bad

Seeing this on ig praying for all you dolls dn there now be safe and take care

What did you wear for recovery

So I'm packed and ready to go to Miami for this life changing surgery.. Every one says take maxi dresses I am not a dress girl.. So I'm taking yoga pants and t-shirts I hope I won't have a issue with getting my pants up n dn after surgery anybody else only wear pants or shorts after their mmo I'm also taking a button up shirt to wear the day of easy to put on over my new boobs hopefully..

One week from today

Well it's finally down to the week before my mmo I'm super excited and ready my nerves are definitely feeling it... I go through stages of do I really want to put my body thru this do i really need higher breast... Then I look at my self and say your 36 not 56 you deserve to be happy in your skin you have birthed 3 beautiful children and now it's time to feel sexy again.... And bam just like that I'm anxious to get in the operating room already... Lol mixed emotions are definitely a part of the waiting process I'm actually glad I planned this 6 months ago it has given me time to research back out prepare compare and be 100% sure that this is what I want... And it is... I'm paid in full labs and everything done bags packed and kids are situated with my mom for my 9 days in Miami all that's left is to relax and be patient... Working up til the 19th then I'll be off til Nov 14th hopefully I'll be recovering well and be able to return to work on time... I am thankful for all the ladies on here that have been so helpful with questions and suggestions I don't have alot of support out side of my fiance.... So it's nice to have you all to turn to and vent so thanks again ladies... I will update again once we land in Miami... Please keep me in ur prayers for safe travels and complication free surgery and recovery...

Original day back on

So spectrum called me this morning said there was a cancelation for Friday morning.... Asked if I could still come uuummmm he'll yes I can yeaaahhhhh it's one day closer again lol

It's almost Oct 21st.....strange dreams

One more work day for me then I'm off til November 14th.... Had the weirdest dream last night I was swinging on a rope standing up from this huge tree over looking this amazingly calm field I seen some of my family members there sitting at a table having lunch or something.... Every time the swing went up I'd get butterflies in my stomach it was a scary feeling kinda like being on a roller coaster then as I looked around I was comforted with the view of my surroundings... It was a great dream not sure why just was made me feel like God was sending me a message or something like it's OK to be scared but look around and enjoy everything it's gonna be ok.... Well at least that's what I took from it.. I am extremely nervous but I know God will keep me safe and everything will work out the way it's supposed to... Just wanted to share this....

Surgery went well so sleepy and tight

Dr ortega was extremely sweet he came in and prayed with me wiped away my rears and said girl we are going to make you look good made me feel good and confident
