So.. I did my consultations from 2 different plastic surgeons in town- I have decided to go with the first one. To be honest, I could go a little further and get it done from Denver (since it is a little bigger city), but I am not sure how I am going to handle coming back from the surgery and emergency follow up..etc..

I did everything to fix it from various... more

I had been desiring a tummy... more

I gave birth to my first child when I was only 16 years old. I was a very tiny 107 pounds when I got pregnant and gained 60+ pounds. I went from a 32A bra size to a 36 DD (a sagggy 36DD) after 4 children and 20+ years after the first I had gained quite a bit of weight. At my heaviest I was 220 pounds. The first step in my transformatin was having Lap Band surgery. In less than one year I went... more
