Album DescriptionNever knew plastic surgery could solve all my body problems that have sent me up and down on my weight loss 4 more than a decade. I was a chubby child and fat teen-ager. Lost about 75 lbs in my 20's then gained it back plus some a few yrs later in my unhappiness.
For the last 6 yrs I had been exercising and yo-yo dieting. Dropped 100 lbs in this time but has been torture! Didn't know I would have never achieved my desired figure this way. Thought there was something really wrong with me bcuz I could never come down 2 a pleasing body. This yr (2008) I went 2 see who is now my plastic surgeon. I LOVED HER FROM DAY 1!!!! She educated me on the fact that my body's problem was that I have mostly extra skin and fallen muscle tissue. She showed me how she could correct these things. I was so relieved ~ finally ~ it's not just my fault ~ I really couldn't do anymore. In fact, she said, it would have gotten worse. I could believe that bcuz I had been up and down so much and really had 2 starve and go to extremes just 2 keep weight off.
The wonderful doctor, later through my pre-op appointments as I began 2 know her and her staff better, told me that I had done a good job (with my weight loss) and that she was proud of me. Wow! What a relief 2 hear this!!!!
My 1st 2 procedures were August 21, 2008 for my Breast Lift (with a minor reduction for symetry) & a Circumfrential Lower Body Lift (including flanks/love handles) with Lipo and Muscle reconstruction.
My 2nd 2 procedures will be October 28, 2008. I will then receive an Inner Thigh Lift & Arm Lift. Then, I do believe, I'll feel more complete... 4 now!
I feel wonderful already and look small people say. I now have a flat tummy, my butt's looking up, my breats (the doc also removed a non-cancerous mass in the R breast) are where they should be and symetrical, and I have a fantastic new belly button!!!! And... I now weigh 165 lbs. 11 lbs were removed. Hope 2 weigh about 150 after the next go 'round.
Looking forward 2 waking up with my smaller thighs and arms!!!!!
