Hello everyone, having my Mommy Makeover on Thursday so thought I would post my journey. About me: 44, happily/joyfully married with 4 kiddos (ages 3 1/2, 2, 2, and 10 months). I bounced back after my first child, and even with my twins, but after my 4th blessing …well, everything just kinda stayed lumpy, and bumpy if you get my drift. I wouldn't change a thing about all these fantastic kids, but I would and will change my body to reflect the super happy spirit inside. My husband and I met and married later in life (married 5 years…yep, we've been busy!) so I want to look my best (well, for both of us really). Given I am considered an "older mom" I don't want to roll up to kindergarden round-up w/ a walker and everyone thinking I am a Grand Parent :) I just want my outside to reflect my inside happiness (and fit back into the boxes of clothes that I cultivated for years when I was single and working and wearing the GLAM stuff - ha).
I will be having a tummy tuck with a side order of lipo and a breast lift. I wanted to see where the girls would land before I thought about putting an implant in (currently a 36 C, he estimated I would land at a 34 B - which seems tiny when I look at bras, but better to play it on the conservative side in my opinion).
I chose my PS by reference, and while I interviewed another person as well…my decision was quickly established and I returned to Dr. John Burns. I have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Burns as well as his staff. They have gone above and beyond to ensure my happiness pre-surgery, so I am confident post surgery will be just the same.
Hoping this week will fly by b/c I'm getting a little antsy to be honest. Will post pics soon. Thanks!
