Booty and thigh lift tomorrow! Boobies next week!



Recommended Posts

Heyyyy it's yo girl. Got my arrival time for my butt lift and thighplasty tomorrow at 7:30 a.m., then 450cc silicone implants in-office on the 15th! Thus will conclude the plastic surgery journey. Prior to bypass I had a breast reduction w/ full nipple graft breast lift and full body liposuction. Post-bypass I had bra-line excision, arm lift, Tummy Tuck, and soon-to-be butt and thigh lift and implants. AMA! I'm officially an expert. lmao. There's nowhere else for them to nip and tuck!

$$$$$$$$$$$

He was supposed to email me my before and after tummy tuck and arm lift but he forgot. I will post them this week when I remind him at my follow-up Friday.

Awesome results @mousecat88 I hope recovery is going good. Was that 450cc implants or is that total volume? That confused me. My implants are 200cc with 370cc total volume. I assumed the implants were 320cc but it meant total volume. I also had reduction forever ago though. My doctor advised on size. I chose upper pole fullness. Funny thing is a small part of me is like did I not get big enough 🤣 of course the doctor advised size based on my frame and thin skin ... but I digress.
Congratulations on coming to the end of your journey 🧡

I have no clue. lol. I was just told they were 450cc implants. I had NO breast fat so I still have some loose horizontal skin. He had to suture my pec muscles really tight on the right side so it wouldn't migrate to my armpit. This resulted in the right breast looking wider. I don't think I want a revision, though. Not worth it. Everything is still healing and I have some folded skin at my lower back that looks like a second butt crack (lol) that he will have to fix in 5 months just in-office with Lidocaine. I don't think I would do a butt lift again. I'll post before and after photos of all that in 5 months. lol!

I was going to go with 400cc but glad I didn't because then I'd have even more loose skin. My end result is a 34D. I almost wish I went with 500 because maybe it would have filled up ALL the loose skin. I dunno. I had a reduction from a 48H in 2017. That left me at a 46D. Then I lost weight and instead of drooping so much, I had a lot of horizontal skin, which is unusual.

We tend to be most critical of ourselves. The folded skin should smooth out over time. Some folds from my thigh lift have started smoothing out finally.

I don’t have before photos and I haven’t shared after. The only before and after I have are ones my surgeon shared on their website.

I didn’t have much breast tissue I was surprised I had anything, but my breast reduction I had very solid dense breast tissue so whatever was left after weight loss was whatever was left of that and I lost all the fat leaving behind empty skin. I do feel I have some loose skin left also after my augmentation I’m hoping won’t be too much as swelling goes down. I think you have the option to ask for a larger implant once. Although for me I can’t afford the expense to travel and the operating room expenses.

When you have the butt lift alone it can cause issues, I hope your doctor fixes it so that you are happy with the results.

i Find myself seeing some imperfections that I don’t quite know what normal is. I don’t regret my surgeries. I just see things like my knees being a weird shape and looking big. But I think these things take time as we heal and our bodies adapt to the changes.

not to be nosy but what do you measure under bust? Measured tight. Whatever you measure is your bra band size. Rounded up if necessary. Ie. 31” = 32 band size. But I’m fairly certain to get cup size if your bust measures 34” at the fullest for example you’d take 34 - 31 = 3 “ and each inch equals 1 cup size. So this example bra size would be 32C. Although my measurements are weird 25.5” under bust and 32” bust ...

My under bust size measures at a 32" and my bust a 36". I am wearing a 34D (no WAY could a 32 actually fit...), but think a 36D would feel better. I think it will depend on style, etc. I ordered an underwire bra for next month in a 36D and it seems like it will be a good fit.

My surgeon doesn't go all the way to the knee or all the way to the elbow so I notice puffiness at my elbows and knees since there is still loose skin there. BUT, still improved. I'll always be self critical...

I guess it depends on your measurements for you 34D is probably the best size. It should fit snug on the loosest hook. Maybe it’s the brand and style that you have that isn’t comfortable. Have you ever tried Felina bras? They have some very soft comfortable bras they don’t have my size but I’ve bought them from Target (called Paramour on Target) in the past and found them soft and comfortable though some bra bands do run smaller and maybe that’s why you sometimes need to size up a band size (and down a cup size) might have been the convertible back t-shirt bra but they also have a memory foam fit bra. There’s a bogo sale going on.

Another comfortable one is Target brand Auden Bliss wire free bra.

I will always be very self critical. I’m trying to not be but it’s always there. I’m noticing my knees and loose skin on my calves. And my there was so much loose skin removed from my backside but has the natural laxity returns I see flaws I wish I could change. But I’m also looking where I didn’t look before because I didn’t want to see. Because the sagging skin was so bad. Do I even know what a normal body is.
