Before and After Pics!!!

BrittanyLinn
on 12/21/12 11:39 am

For those of you that didn't see my last post, I posted pictures 11 days post op plastic surgery. Now I am posting before and after pictures. The before pictures are from the weekend before gastric sleeve surgery, and the after pictures are almost 3 weeks post op plastic surgery (Tummy tuck, and breast lift and augmentation).  This has been an amazing journey for me. Choosing to get the gastric sleeve was the best decision I ever could have made for myself. The minor struggles I went through during my weight loss are completely worth how I feel now. I have nothing bad to say about anything that has happened through my journey, the hair loss, the dumping from certain foods not agreeing with my tummy, the emotional change, everything was completely worth it. I NEVER could have gotten to where I am today without the sleeve. And to think just a year and a half ago I said I WILL NOT wear a wedding dress when I get married.... I have actually had my wedding dress for a few months now and Im getting married in March lol. My WLS changed my life. And to those of you that are thinking of getting WLS or are scheduled to get WLS and your scared... Trust me you will NOT regret it!!!

Absolutely beautiful! Awesome job and best wishes for an amazing wedding and life with your hubby.

Wondering: How was the recovery from the plastic surgery?

aww thank you!! Recovery was very painful!! My surgeon said I recovered a lot faster than most, thank god. But by my 2 week mark I was feeling a lot better. My breasts felt a lot worse than my tummy tuck though.

I was afraid you'd say that lol

I have a long time to go before that would be an option. I only had my surgery 7 weeks ago, but was curious.

aw well congratulations on getting your surgery!!! Trust me the time will FLY by and you will be ready for plastics :) Honestly though the pain is all worth it. Every time I would feel pain I would just think of how far I have come and it made me feel a lot better. Well im sure the Vicadin helped with that LOL

Omg!  You look amazing!  Ready for a bikini!  So great you did this while you are young.  I wish I could redo my wedding with a tiny dress - so many more choices then when you are 230 pounds.  I'm curious, how tall are you?  I started at 251 and have a similar goal of 150.  I too will need plastics to get a flat tummy - after years of carrying weight and two pregnancies.  How long was the recovery from the tummy tuck?  How long do you think you needed to feel well enough to take care of two toddlers?  Looking forward to seeing wedding dress and honeymoon pics!

Thank you so much! I am 5'5. I started off at 257 and now weigh 130, i would weigh 126 but my breast implants are 2lbs each. I am 3 weeks out on Monday, and I just had my fiances 5 year old cousin over for a sleep over. We baked cookies made bracelets, and I gave her a bath and was able to keep up with her lol Im not sure how old your kids are, but as long as you dont lift anything you should be able to take care of them completely after about 2-3 weeks :)
