Christie (CrazyOne175) Story

  • Breast Augmentation and Lift

  • Tummy Tuck

  • Liposuction

 

All of my life (at least since puberty) I was the girl with the boobs. I hated them because they were always saggy. Then, I had two children. I never lost the weight from the first one before getting pregnant three years later with the second one. So...my already saggy boobies became even bigger, saggier boobies.

 

At the time I was married to an alcoholic, who told me every day in words and actions how stupid, fat, and ugly I was and how nobody else but him would EVER want me. Also, I must add- my second son was born a preemie with medical conditions. So, dessert became my best friend. As my weight went up, my boobs fell down. I finally got to the "straw that broke the camels back" with my now ex-husband, and ventured out to live my own life with my kids. I started losing weight, found two careers and started meeting people who actually liked me. But I still hated my body, and my saggy boobies.

 

About four years ago I finally got the courage to go see a plastic surgeon about a tummy tuck and liposuction. I scraped together the money and had it done. WHOA, I was not prepared for that!!! But it turned out for the best. I was still not happy with my body and at the time had a boyfriend who at best was a jealous, non-trusting recluse- I am quite the opposite.

 

So once again...I ditched the man and decided to spend time with just me and the kids. This was the best thing I ever did. I started going to the gym (hated it!!) stared eating better, and the funniest thing happened...I saw that my body wasn't terrible. But yes- the boobies still sagged. I met my now husband, life was happy, the gym became an addiction, and things were still improving.

 

After losing 30lbs total (still want to ditch more) I rewarded myself with a breast lift. Wasn't going for implants at first, but the doc said he thought I would be disappointed with the look (after I told him what I was trying to achieve) without implants. So, I got them too. Had the surgery done in April of 2008, and I am happy that I did. Now, when it's bathing suit time- they hold up the bathing suit top, instead of it holding them up. It's great, I don't have to chase those suckers around and jam them in my top and hope they stay there. I still have more I want to do in the future. I still hit the gym 6 times a week (2 times with a trainer) and am hoping to take off ten or fifteen more pounds. But until then, I can actually look in the mirror now and say that the person looking back at me “ain't all that bad”. Not exactly what I'd like to see, but not too bad for a chick that has been through some of the things I have been through. Thank God for plastic surgeons. As long as they are on this earth...I do not plan to get old gracefully, I fully intend to get old KICKING AND SCREAMING!!!
