Ready for Some Proper Boobs - Melbourne, AU

I come from a family of small breasted women. We all breast-fed our babies (I had 3) and amazed ourselves at how such tiny boobs could sustain growing babies. My Dad who's a Vet tended to make comments about how some of the best milking cows are Jerseys with small udders ;\ thanks Dad! So I'm having a tummy tuck to correct the other thing that runs in our family - big diastasis recti (mum and... READ MORE

A mommy makeover with a mini - right decision?

Why I want this tummy tuck. Before I had kids I was about 13kg overweight which on a small frame was noticeable. With a huge effort I lost the weight and got to 56kg which was probably a bit ‘under’ for me – I looked scrawny but still had a bit of a belly, nothing to get too excited about.

Looking great! I'm 8.5 weeks and like you I can't decide if it's swelling or fat... trying not to obsess but geez, I looked better at D14 than I do now! Yes, do double check before you swim with the suture poking through - would be sad... READ COMMENT

Looking great! I had boobs done too - they do have minds of their own but it's great seeing them continue to soften and settle. Are you massaging the boobs much? My PS told me to but it feels so wierd. Happy healing! READ COMMENT

Hi Beaucat, sorry I didn't see your comment till today. It was very helpful. I look at my pics and wonder how much of this swelling is actually fat, and I am trying so hard to get back to working out. I will take your advice re the abdo... READ COMMENT
