Planning Ahead

Mommy Makeover

When I got pregnant with my son I gained a lot of weight, well 11 years later the weight is still there plus some. I have lost 42lbs already and have about 55 left to lose to get to my goal. I know I will need a breast lift and implants and most likely a tummy tuck. Should I consult with a surgeon now to develop a plan or wait until I get to my goal weight?

Please help need a breast reduction

Breast Reduction

I’m 36 I have 3 children. I have always had larger breasts even before kids. Now they are worse! My body frame is small I’m only 5ft 2. I have severe neck back and shoulder pain. Headaches everyday. Rashes under my breast. My hands get tingly. I went for a reduction in 2008 but I got scared and didn’t go. I’m kind of glad I didn’t because I ended up having my last child in 2016. I have Medicaid .
