Hey yall I just recently joined after watching every youtube video and every before and after picture on Dr. Davis & Pyles website and ended up here from watching Eden's video. I have been wanting and researching on mommy makeovers for 2 years. I know certain I want one, my husband says I am beautiful but I feel so uncomfortable in my own skin. We have 2 beautiful and amazing children together and I wouldn't trade them for anything. The only big thing holding me back is the recovery. Our children are small, my husband is a lineman and works out of town everyday, sometimes can't come home for weeks at a time. I do have other family members willing and able to help me, but can anyone tell me honestly how long it would be before I could lift my children? Drive one to school? How long is the actual process of healing I guess. I feel so guilty wanting to do this because I know my children depend on me and I am also really funny over them. It sounds crazy but I am just as attached to them as they are to me.. but I am literally staring myself down before every shower, hating my body and hating getting dressed and even having sex with the lights on. I weigh myself almost every day and I don't even know why I do this to myself. My husband doesn't understand it, and I appreciate his unconditional love for me but DAMN I hate my upper body lol my children are 6 and 3, I am 5'5 and currently 145-147 pounds. I am on and off dieting and working out. I feel like I lose focus because my belly will not change without surgery but also my core muscles are torn so I always look pregnant. I've lost the desire to work for my goal because I just feel helpless. I breast fed too so theres that too lol I'm currently a 34B/C. Any advice or motivation or really anything would be so much help
I am just a few days out (my surgery was Monday). Everyone has different recoveries and i thought that since I bounced back after both childbirths pretty easily and that I’m an active/fit person that I would be okay - I totally underestimated the help I would need!
My kids are 5 and 8, the 8 year old has helped the 5 year old out a ton. But they weren’t home the first two days (they were at their dads) and my boyfriend took two days off of work to help me. And by help - I couldn’t sit up or lay down alone, pull up my pants alone, push the open button on my water bottle it was rough!!
My the third day I did feel much better and my kids are home - but I’ve had to arrange friends to pickup from school (I thought I would be able to drive by Friday). Don’t be afraid to Arrange and ask for help- it has gone by fast and I feel like the worst is over.
And so far - I absolutely don’t regret it! the worst part really flew by and I carefully packed my kids’ lunches today and am getting back to normal. Hugs, momma!
I defenately recommend mommy makeover. It will change your life It changed mine. You can see my pics... I also did loose a lot of weight so I had a ton of extra skin.
My makeover was made two years ago and next week I’m going to get implants done. I had tommy tuck and breast lift with small liposuction. This cost me only about 100-200 € as it was done in regional hospital.
Yes first week was hard but recovery went really well for me. I had my hubby to help me and it was christmass time so we had holiday.
My boys where 6 and 8 at the time and I told them what was happening and why they couldn’t hug and squeez me. They took it really well. At first I was looking quite terrible and I did not want them to see me naked. (Here in Finland we go to sauna all together as a family and yes we are naked )
While recovering I was using corset every day for about 4 months. You can see pics of my tommy tuck journey here.
Feel free to ask about my mommy makeover.
And good luck to your journey!
