Two years ago I carried my daughter for 42 weeks and she was born 10.1lbs. I have a fairly small frame, so my stomach was huge!
I went in for a few tummy tuck consultations, as I wasn't sure if I needed to lose more weight, but was told that I am a great candidate now. I choose Dr. Robbins in Des Moines, and my date has been set. I have a lot of things planned already this summer, so I had to push the date out to July, and the wait is killing me!
Dr. Robbins and his nurse were awesome and I can't wait to get this show on the road. I've attached some current before pics.
12 more days!
I had my pre-op appointment today. We talked a few weeks ago and I decided to add a breast lift to my procedure making this a full on Mommy Makeover. I am so excited!
Today we went over risks, pre-op do and donts, recovery care, and any questions I had. I received my prescriptions for my meds. I don't have to get any blood work, just a pregnancy test the morning of surgery.
I learned that if I develop dog eats, they would be corrected free of charge. Along with any complications. I brought my husband to the appointment because I wanted him to hear it from them, that he is going to have to force to me stay in bed/recliner. I'm not to get up, with an exception to go to the restroom, for a week.
I'll add a photo of my droopy boobies :).
Six weeks post op
Love it! There have been some ups and downs, doubt with swelling, wound separation on my right breast, but right around 5 1/2 - 6 weeks, my results have started to really show and it's amazing.
