i have always been overweight all of my life. it has always been a constent battle both inside my mind as well as my outside body. at 18 i was 205 and only 4'11". i finally decided i needed to do something about it. i lost 50 lbs in about a year with diet and exercise. then i got pregnant and went back up to 205. this was just an ongoing battle and my body was not recovering very well to this yo yo weight gain.
i did loose the weight over the next several years but my body structure was just not adjusting to my new weight. i had excess skin the just didn't tighten up even with excersize,and my breasts were so uneven after all the weight gain and loss. my self confidence was just not where i thought it would be after such a sucessful accomplishment of loosing all of that weight.
my husband and i decided to look into plastic surgery as a present to myself for accomplishing my goal. after my consult i put a deposit down and started paying off this surgery that i scheduled. it was a major surgery, a full tummy tuck and breast lift and augmentation that evened out my breasts to look the same.
this is the best thing i have ever done any my plastic surgeon was amazing. he was so honest and straight foward and that is definitely what you need when you are doing a procedure like this. it has now been 5 years and i an very happy with my results. i have kept the weight off and my self confidence is 100% higher than it used to be.
i forget sometimes what i used to look like before. sometimes i think i still can look better, but then i take a look back at my pictures before and it brings me to tears. i am so proud of myself and i can actually wear a bikini and look decent in it. something i could never have done before.
my doctor is amazing and i would never change a thing about my decisions on having these surgeries. i feel like a new person especially from the inside. it made me appreciate myself in ways i never thought i could.
