Before I chose Dr. Sadik at Guthrie Robert packer hospital in Sayre, PA I had two other consults and felt really discouraged. One I went to in Elmira, NY actually told me what SHE was going to do for me and never asked things like, saline or silicone.. Nope..just told me it would be silicone and she would never go over 450ccs for anyone! Not what I wanted! I felt so discouraged! It all changed when I went to sayre and say Dr. Sadik who listened to what I wanted and made suggestions based on his awesome Doctor knowledge. Originally I was thinking of just the breast augmentation but the more I thought about it, the more I really hated my ugly tummy. I brought it up in my consult about a mini tummy tuck but I learned I would be much happier with a full tummy tuck. I have had really bad hip pain since the birth of my first child and I'm hoping by correcting the diastisis, it will help my hips. I will certainly let any of you know how that goes! I had to book my surgery date out a few months because I'm involved in a lot of volunteer work and my calendar is booked! I'm so excited. It's two days away! I've been scrubbing my house top to bottom and making preparations for everything to go easy. The only thing I'm worried about is my four year old who has nightmares and wants me to hold her. I'm praying I can get through the first week without that happening.
30 Year Old Mom 2 Kids, Time to Get my Body Back!
Before I chose Dr. Sadik at Guthrie Robert packer...
Finally ..the wait is over and I'm out on the flat side!
My surgery went great. I haven't taken anything off to see but I can see the top of my boobs ans they look good. Originally I wanted to go with 600cc because I wanted to be big but then I just told Dr. Sadik to put whatever he can in ansninwould be happy. He put in 400ccs! I'm sure I'll be happy with them! Pain wise..after I woke up from anesthesia was the worst. They gave me tons of narcotics but it wasn't helping. When the doctor came in he realized my pain was from muscle spasms and gave me a muscle relaxer which helped SO much..so re,ember that ladies! The staff was wonderful at the Robert packer hospital. Everyone was asking if I needed anything and everything was so organized. The only funny mistake was that somehow my weight got in the computer as 1,421 pounds lol! At home I'm sitting in the reclining part of my sectional wishing I had bought one of those motorized chairs..if hard for me to ask for help...I hate doing it. My husband has been by my side and is sleeping with the kids on the couch lol we call this a family campout. My four year old doesn't really understand what mommy had done but she knows mommy is sore and she has to ask daddy for things. My step year old son is worried about me but knows I have daddy to help. He has also helped me get water. I am blessed with the awesome family I have! I will post some pictures tomorrow..they will probably just be with the binder on but maybe it'll help someone to see what that looks like.

I get my staples out on Tuesday..I can't wait! I will make sure I post pics. The staples freak out my four year old..and me a little too..it's really weird. I've also been looking at tattoos and thinking about getting one to cover up my now half there tattoo lol. I'm not sure because I'm such a baby and I really don't feel like taking on any more pain but I may feel differently in a year when my scar is totally healed and I can get the darn thing.
I've also been thinking a lot about birth control..lol .. I currently have my second iud in and I love them..work awesome..but it expires this summer and I'm not sure if I want a third one or I want something more permanent. I had so much trouble getting pregnant for my kids but I have this weird fear now of getting pregnant and ruining all this beautiful work! I know maybe it's selfish but please know I love my children a great deal and feel like I am done having babies and am happy to focus all of my attention on them.
I will post pics of my tummy..I am pretty swollen but honestly..I would be ok if I was just left with these results lol..I love putting on clothes..especially shirts that are tight around the middle and looking in the mirror! My doc is really freaking awesome and I have no clue wtf he is doing in sayre pa because he should probably be in la or nyc doing his thing! I am really happy with everything.just wish I felt more comfy :(
Amazing! I am so happy I decided to have a few consults and didn't settle for less than the best. He has so much positive energy and is very knowledgeable. He is honest and polite (actually asked if he could touch me before he did..haha.. Sure, I'm here in this gown asking for you to cut me open and insert implants..but ok, ask me if you can touch lol!) I lost my modesty after giving birth nine years ago..I'm sure many of you can relate!
