My daughter is 17 and my son is 9 months, we have decided no further children. So for a Christmas gift, I am getting a mommy makeover. Yeah!!! Yahoo!! I've waited almost 18 years for these stretch marks and saggy skin to go away. I am so grateful for this opportunity. I feel so blessed with my family and my support.
I am nervous and very excited about the whole surgery. I have to decide between two doctor by Monday. One has over 30 years experience and the other only 10 years, not sure who I will pick.
I hope I am not overwhelmed with pain and that I heal very well. I work full time and go to school full time, so I am hoping only to be down about 2 weeks.
But I can't wait for my new body. I can finally wear a bikini again... it almost makes me get teary eyed. I'm so happy!!!Updated on 15 Dec 2011:Tomorrow is my surgery.. I'm so nervous but excited and a bit tired. I have a demanding job, go to school fulltime and have a wonderful family so I'm pooped at the end of the day.
My surgery is tomorrow at 7:30am in Newport Beach, Ca. I am more concerned about not being able to pick up my son than anything else. I have a wonderful mom who will come and take care of my son while I'm restricted from lifting him. I went to Macy's and bought the tummy control garments the doctor suggested, spanx. My mom picked me up some robes and gowns that I will be wearing for the next two weeks. I took the time off work and have been taking my vitamins to prepare my body. Now it's almost here.
I'm so nervous I keep asking my husband, are you OK with this??? I'm starting to bug him I think.. :)
Gosh I hope I don't puke. My daughter is calmer than I am, she's talking me down. It's very cute.
I went with the older doctor, the practice was relaxed and very family like, not flashy. He has spent a lot of time with me and has been very comforting.Updated on 20 Dec 2011:Hi everyone. Today is recovery day four, yeah! I have a picture my husband took yesterday and the doctors office will send me some before pictures soon. I'll post the before pictures once I get them.
My tummy is smooth for the first time in 17 years. I almost cried I was so taken back. I am very happy. I'm a little swollen.
I'm still adjusting to having boobs. They are a little weird, they look good but Im not used the implants yet. I went with 350cc and they look great, very full, not fake looking. My husband likes the way they look, very natural. :)Updated on 22 Dec 2011:I have some pictures of before and after to post. The difference is incredible. This is incredible... The change is so amazing. I am so happy.
