DISCLAIMER** If you are against surgery Please do not read this blog or leave negative comments. I am not promoting plastic surgery or for you to get any work done. I believe everyone shape and size is Beautiful. I decided to get this done for my own reasons. I am documenting and taking you along on my journey and being open about my surgery. Again if this is something you are against you don’t have to read it.
I’ve been wanting to get a mommy makeover since 2015 after my first child was born. I held off because me and my husband were considering having another baby. After my second was born me and husband made the decision that we aren’t having anymore kids. We are happy with two. After I was cleared to exercise post pregnancy I was on a mission to get back to my pre pregnancy body back. I hit the ground running trying to get my body back in shape to avoid surgery. I hit my goal weight ! but my stomach and boobs had some major issues from my second pregnancy.
I made the decision to start interviewing plastic surgeons because I was over my body becoming hassle. How did it become a hassle? Well to start Clothes shopping is a nightmare!!! I can’t buy certain outfits that I want because of my boobs and tummy area. I always have to wear high waisted pants to cover the pooch and I have to buy extra padded push up bras. The extra padded push up bras are the biggest problem. Do you know how hard it is to find a full coverage push up bra with enough padding to hold up sagging boobs? ITS HARD AND SOOOO ANNOYING. Plus I can’t wear anything strapless. I have to be careful on which tops I buy because of my bra straps and I’m completely over it. Especially since I workout 6 days a week and eat a clean diet and have nothing to show for it.
After interviewing countless plastic surgeons I finally found the perfect doctor for me. At my consultation he took the time out to get to know me and my concerns. Then he examined me in the exam room. I showed him my problems and concerns and what I am expecting to get out of surgery. He explained to me he can tell I exercise and eat healthy and that I am very proportioned but my concern areas still exist because my stomach muscles and boobs can not be correct with diet and exercise. We went over the options that will work best for me.
Each mommy makeover is unique, and every procedure involved in your makeover will be customized the areas of your body you want to restore. What I am getting done is a tummy tuck , flank liposuction to sculpt my sides, and boob lift with NO implants. Which I’m so excited to keep my boobs natural just lifted!
Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen thinner and more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wal is because my stomach bulge is caused by diastasis recti.
In short, it’s a gap in between your right and left abdominal wall muscles that can result in a rounded, protruding belly “pooch.” Basically my stomach pooch still looks pregnant months after delivery.
I’m getting A breast lift with no implant . Since I want them natural just lifted. A boob lift is known as mastopexy — is a surgical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon to change the shape of your breasts. During a breast lift, excess skin is removed and breast tissue is reshaped to raise the breasts.
I NEVER HAD SURGEY BEFORE or anything cosmetic done. I’m so excited to be able to wear what I want and Not have to buy extra padded push up bras. I won’t have the burden to have to think or worry about what I am wearing. This is also going to build so much confidence for me. I cried at the consultation I didn’t know how much it affected me until I saw before and after photos of others . I felt the excitement of getting this corrected and I sobbed like a baby at the office luckily the doctor was supportive and understanding.
A simple procedure can take as little as three to four hours while a more involved procedure can take as many as six to eight hours. Based on your needs.
Up to 4 weeks depending on how the person heals
This depends on your office and what you are getting done but a estimate is starting at $30,000 on up for tummy tuck and boobs. I will be blogging my journey pre and post surgery. I will also make blog on everything that is needed for surgery and what to expect on surgery day. I am excited to document and take you along on this journey with me.
