Album Description

After having 6 beautiful babies in 10 years, my body was a train wreck. I was unfortunatly one of those people that put on a ton of weight with every baby. I delivered each baby at 238 lbs!! After the birth of number 6, I started on my journey to finally have the body that I had only dreamed about for the past 10 years. 14 months later, I finally reached 135 lbs. The problem was my body looked nothing like I thought it would. The more weight I lost the worse I looked. My breasts that once filled a G cup size, were empty, flat and hanging to the bottom of my ribs. I didn't even have enough tissue left to technically be called an A cup. My stomach that once carried my precious cargo was now a wrinkly bag of skin that was unable to be fixed by exercise or diet. I purchased rubber shirts to wear under my clothing and begged my husband not to turn the light on. Finally I decided that no matter how scared I was, I would never be happy until I had my baby damage repaired. After several consultations I met Dr. Saltz. He is a miracle worker. It was the best decision I ever made. I can finally look in the mirror and say that I love who I am.

You look great. Did you discuss with your doctor the possiable complications with BA and Implants? There is so much on the net about implants causing autoimmune disorders, brain cancer, memory loss. I am scared:( I have had 2 kids but, gain 70# both times! So my breast are a mess. Did you have a lift and BA? How long did it take you incision to heal? Hpw long untill you could lay on your tummy. What type of implants did you get. Thanks if you can answer any of these:)

Thanks Suziebug!! I am sooo happy and Hawaii was sooo much better with my new body. Halter top dresses everyday. Cute bikinis. Life is good. Basically the first 3 days are HORRIBLE! But you can do anything for 3 days. My sister came to help me get through the first week, thank heavens!! Then it just gets better everyday. I went to lunch with my friend on day 10 and felt great. I got my drains out on day 7, after that it is a cake walk. I took percacete for 2 days, loratab for about 4 days after that and then just Ibuprophfin 800. I do have 6 kids so I never really got to just do NOTHING. I was picking the house up with my toes because it was driving me crazy!! Depending on the type of work you do, you will be fine. Just be very careful about the lifting. I was feeling fabulous, then Delta lost my stroller in Hawaii so i had to carry my 1 year old to the baggage claim. I was in a lot of pain for about 3 days. I even had to borrow my mother in laws tylenol with coedine and I hadn't taken anything since week 2. I had my surgery 2 months ago and I still am very faithful about the binder. I have a Ardyss Body Magic and it ROCKS! My ps was even like "Where did you find that?" It has shoulder straps to help with your posture (it's bad) and it give you a cute round butt :) I have just been using Vitamin E, Mederma and Mlis Tissue repair to massage my scars. I feel like they look pretty good for only 2 months but I am religious about massage. Any other questions let me know!! MAKE SURE YOU GET AN AMAZING SURGEON! You only have 1 body and it's not worth screwing it up over a few thousand $$.

Congratulations on your transformation!! I hope you had a wonderful time in Hawaii:) You are exactly the same age and size as me! But, I have only had 3 beautiful babies...so you got me there!! :) I was so excited to find your profile as I too am looking into the same surgeries you have had done. Except I would also like at inner thigh lift but after looking at all the profiles and reading the stories, I am not so sure anymore; seems to be a lot of complications involved there. I was wondering how long it took you to get up and around after your surgery? I work full time and would only be able to swing maybe 3 weeks off. Any other advise or info you might have would be greatly appreciated!!

you are healing amazingly well! Did you take any supplements? If so which ones? Also, how are you caring for your scars? Your bellybutton looks great!

fancilft- I had implants put in. I didn't have any breast tissue left, so he put 420cc. My breasts don't look enormous in the pictures. But they are a definate 36D. I feel like my PS did a great job making my breasts the perfect size in porportion to my body. i am a mother of 6 children and I didn't want to enter the room breast first.

ibbabeedoll - I'm so excited for you!! Do you have any pictures posted?? Thanks for the comments I'm soooo happy!! Life is so fun. We are going to Hawaii on Sunday and I have the cutest bikinis!!

Thanks!! Any of you that are considering it, I have not regreted any of it for one second. I probably spend at least 2 hours a day trying on bikinis, halter tops and walking around naked. It feels so good to love the skin your in. Don't wait one more second. Honestly the pain is NOTHING compared to the happiness that awaits you.

You look amazing! Your belly button looks really natural too. Congrats on your new transformation. Im like you. Im 5'6 and 113 now but I was 211 at the height of my pregnacy. The more weight I lost the more empty my breast and belly became. Ive been on a wait list for over 1 year and just keep waiting for my turn. Hopefully this spring.
Take care and happy healing!
