Decision to go ahead with a mommy makeover came very easily and quickly, I didnt ask any questions to be honest when I saw my surgeon for the first time , I had been reading bits and pieces on realself forum and he gave me all the information that was necessary .
My only request was that he did a teardrop incision for my belly button and not a circle and would he pull up the mons pubis( pubic are had a pouch ) and fix before joining me back up again.
I went quietly on my own to the hospital on the day of my surgery having only told one friend so I could get a lift home.
I have had 4 children C section for all 4 , Hysterectomy , Laparotomy for ovarian cyst and gall bladder removal. So although my big tummy looked like a big smile with the overhang it was a very sad sight ,like a buttocks on my tummy( due to laparotomy ) with deep stretch marks and lots of loose skin having also lost 42lb in weight.
The last of my children left home to go travelling so I thought here we go , now this is something you need to do for yourself to begin the second half of your life . Body Repair.
I cannot put into words my delight , shock , amazement at how my body looks 3 weeks post op. Its amazing to look in the mirror and see the breast and tummy I had when I was 15 , I am 54 now and am so looking forward to what the rest of 2013 has in store for me , how exciting!!
I did take some photos before I went in , so in a week or so I will take some post op and put them on my profile.
Thankyou girls for all your help , you have no idea how much it has helped and supported me xoxoxo
