I am over the top happy that you are here with us!! You are doing an excellent job in your research and consults. You are going to know when you have found the right doctor for you. And yes you definitely want a Board Certified doctor.
You will not be judged by anyone on RealSelf. So you post away and all of the ladies will extend support to you.
You are not alone in your thoughts and fears:) Please keep me up to date on how everything is going.
The message I gave my teenager was that it's ok to want to feel good about yourself and have confidence about the decisions you make. I explained how I felt and why I wanted to do this for myself. The response I got was " Go Mom".
People can be very critical about plastic surgery procedures and will pass judgement on others. I feel this is very harsh and have also raised my child to never pass judgement on others.
Plastic surgery is a very personal decision and it's not for everyone. However if you have done your research, are mentally prepared and know deep in your heart this is something you want then you should do it.
This is where RealSelf comes in as a wonderful place for people to do research and find support. They will not be judged here and can speak open and honest about how they are feeling. I am confident that most all of the people on RealSelf will agree.
