Album Description

I have struggled with weight all my life. I've been on virtually every diet and also had a personal trainer. The area I've always struggled with are my thighs. They've always been large. I had 2 liposuctions on my thighs and if I had known what I know now would have had a thigh lift years ago. Now I have very saggy inner thighs that no amount of exerise AND lipo has helped.

After having my son (who's 8yrs.old) now my stomach has become an issue (I've also had trouble with cysts, endometriosis) which expanded my stomach (and probably no more kids).

I finally made the decision to do this for me. Thought I was being lazy, not exercising enough but every year it becomes more more difficult to lose the weight (199lbs currently, the highest I've ever been). I HATE the way I look, the way I feel in my clothes and it's affecting my quality of life.

My doctor is Dr. Capella (NYC/NJ). I know I am going to LOVE my results. The procedure date of Jan. 2010 is my hopeful date. I need to make sure I can get enough time off to recuperate.

Hi Lizzi2223

I know exactly how you feel. I had to postpone 3 times before I actually had my surgery. Hang in there girl. Your time is coming|

I can imagine how disappointed you are, but don't give up, your time will come. I had my first consult this week and decided to book my surgery in December. That will give me the time I need to save for my surgery. I'm getting a breast lift this year and either a thigh lift or tummy tuck next year. Probably a thigh lift.

Keep your eye on the prize girl! You can do it! ;-)

Well, I had to postpone my surgery due to financial issues. I am so disheartened. I've been waiting all my life for this only to have to put it off. Thank you for the well wishes. I'll keep you posted.

Please let me know how your surgery goes and how pleased you are with Dr. Capella. I am seeing Dr. Sheila Bond in Montclair, NJ for my first consult for a Breast Lift/Augmentation and Tummy Tuck. I am considering scheduling an appointment for a consult with Dr. Capella as well.

Good Luck, please keep us posted!
