  1. I too had a full TT, BL and BA in November and had it all done at once Recovery was a breeze except for some serious swelling 2 weeks post op but it settled on its own after about week 4 the worst part was having to stay still when I felt 'fine'! I'm so happy with my flat tummy and big boobs. Although I may need a slight revision on my left boob as its falling into my arm pit a bit but I think that's just because of the pocket being a bit bigger due to fixing pre exsisting asymmetry. All up my surgery cost a lot as I had no insurance and spent 4 nights in hospital. Surgeons fee: $11,700 Hospital: $10,000 aneathesist: $3000 So $25,000 all up. So worth it though. I'm only 26 and had lost 57 kilos so needed some fixing!!
  2. I was up walking and going to the toilet about three hours after surgery carrying my drains and pushing my pain pump stand lol. I was busting lol. Walked hunched over for about 4 days then upright since then.
  3. I haven't seen any of my wounds except my drains because they are all covered in sticky compression wrap things... I won't see anything till Friday and it's killing me!!! Let me know how it goes... Surely it won't hurt too much and even if it stings a bit it won't last long
  4. Drain is coming out in a few minute and my man is on his way to get me!!! Cannot wait to be in my own bed!!
  5. I'm not sure lol the food isn't not amazing but the hospital is nice... I spoke to the financial people today and they said considering i had already paid so much in hospital fees (the estimate was $9000 for theatre and bed for three nights) that it's likely an extra night won't cost me anymore but we will have to wait and see.
  6. Have to stay in another night now because one of my drains still needs to be in which sucks but there isn't much I can do. So I'm just trying to stay positive and rest all day today and hopefully get some sleep today and tonight. Can't really stay any longer than tonight as I am self funded and at $1000 bucks a night I don't want to stay too long lol but I also don't want infections or cost of revision surgeries lol. Still feeling really good without pain and wishing I could see the results!!
  7. Biggest mental hurdle down...one Drain removed and I barely even felt it!! I had worked myself up to all this pain and I'm just so glad I haven't really had any yet. I'm a bit more tender now I'm not on the pain pump anymore but hoping to leave tomorrow morning. I'm just devastated I won't get to see my boobs till Friday!! One week post op is a long time. I'm already so stoked with my tummy and waist though!! My vagina looks very different so that will take some getting used to!!
  8. Ok so a few more details... Surgeon went in with the intention to do muscle repair but said that the condition of my muscles was excellent and did not need any repair at all but she put a few in around my belly button for some natural contouring. Which was so great to hear. 1.7 kilos of skin was cut off my tummy. I am So flat and even sitting up today In bed I could see and feel a waist!!! AMAZING! Cannot wait to see results. I have no garments on just compression tape across boobs and tummy which will stay on for a week I think. Which seems weird but it feels very supportive I'm doing so much better than I thought I would!!
  9. I'm DONE!!!! Tummy is slightly tender when I cough or move quickly but totally manageable. Didn't go in until 6:30 last night so was on the ward at 11:30... I feel so relieved that it's over!! Hardest part is not sleeping for more than 5 minutes at a time but at least this time there is no newborn to care for too haha!! And my boobs are big for a better reason Boobs actually don't hurt at all yet. Getting up to pee (3 times so far) isn't too bad. Feeling pretty good

  11. Julie Ann I so hope they say the same for me!!!! 4 hours till surgery ladies!!! I cannot believe it's MY day already!! So excited.... Surprisingly not as nervous as I was yesterday. Bring it on i say. See you on the other side!!!
  12. i think ive been avoiding this thread because im only four days out and it feels too real coming in here haha! ive got the pre surgery jitters and im worried i wont get the desired results and my boobs will be all uneven and that i wont even see results on my tummy... i know its all nonsense but ive been dreaming of this for so long and now its soooo close!! I THINK im in denial!! LOL so my only real question this far out is what did everyone pack to take to hospital? what kind of clothes did you wear home?
  13. New change I hear you... Im booked in theatre at 3:30pm... It's going to be the slowest day of my life!
  14. uploaded some before photos of my tummy for those interested not keen to do befores of my boobies though! yuck lol. im having 500CC moderate profiles put in at the same time as a lift and TT. this is my skin after losing 60 kilos with diet and exercise... cant wait till my tummy is flat and i can show it some sun for the first time EVER!!! there isnt any fat left on my tummy and when i pull at it i am so skinny underneath, although its hard to imagine the results two weeks pre op lol
  15. Paid my surgeons fee yesterday... This is really happening!!!! Ahhhhhhh! Two weeks tomorrow!!! I am so excited, it's ridiculous! I'll post some before photos a bit later. Crazily studying for exams which are next week then I have a week to enjoy my Pilates and beach going and prep food before surgery! I cannot believe it's actually happening!!!
