kimmers25 - Good evening ladies:)
janebb - Hi
kimmers25 - hello
janebb - My first time, I am looking for people in the Palm Springs, Palm Desert area
kimmers25 - So what would you like to chat about tonight? Have you had your procedure yet?
janebb - no trying to make a final decision as to which doctor
janebb - do I need an overnight facility or not?
kimmers25 - that is the most important step in this entire process.
janebb - and a difficult one
kimmers25 - yes very difficult:) Not all doctors use the over night facillities.
kimmers25 - I prefer to be in my own home after surgery.
cwgrlup - Hello ladies
kimmers25 - keep going for consults until you find the doctor you click with most.
kimmers25 - Hi cwgrlup
janebb - I have found 2, i visited 4 and it is down to those two
janebb - Hi
kimmers25 - that is good! call me crazy but I went to 9..LOL
janebb - I did a lot of online first, when was yours?
janebb - I saw the one from Kennewick..scary
kimmers25 - i had my br in january of 2009 and the tt and lipo in April of 2010
janebb - i what State
kimmers25 - try to focus on the good or you will make yourself crazy. I am in Wisconsin
cwgrlup - I have my pro op tomorrow so excited
cwgrlup - thats pre op
janebb - Ok,,s when you say click do you mean personality with good creditenials or just credentials
kimmers25 - hurray! that means you are so close now..
kimmers25 - both credentials and personally. You have to like them as well and feel totally comfortable
cwgrlup - yes 2 weeks from tomorrow
janebb - Way to go...cwgrlup, where are you located?
cwgrlup - Nebraska
kimmers25 - yes we are in the cold states..LOL snowing here right now.
janebb - Cool..So kimmers, tt + lip and cwrrlup ?
kimmers25 - i also had a br
cwgrlup - Oh wow we were suppose to get some but our neck of the woods stayed clear but it is cold
janebb - Sorry about the snow... whats a br?
kimmers25 - breast reduction and lift
cwgrlup - I had br in 2006
cwgrlup - and now tt and lipo
cwgrlup - on the 17th
kimmers25 - i love all of my results
janebb - Thats good to hear, some docs said only tt and did not want to do lipo
janebb - How are old are you girls?
cwgrlup - will be 40 11-11-11
kimmers25 - my doc would not do the lipo on the torso area but he did do the hips, thighs and booty
kimmers25 - i am 47
janebb - You are good to do this as it is difficult standing naked in front of young men with it all out :>)
kimmers25 - wow..11-11-11 nice!
janebb - the torsi being the upper belly
cwgrlup - ya kinda cool huh
kimmers25 - i wanted this years ago.yes upper belly
janebb - Happy B Day!!!!
cwgrlup - thanks
kimmers25 - yes happy birthday!
janebb - I should have been dieting for years i,m 56
kimmers25 - yeah having things hang out is no fun
janebb - and I mean years....
kimmers25 - 56 is young..thats the new 40
cwgrlup - still young
janebb - Did you hear that cwgrlup, that make you 23
kimmers25 - we are only as old as we feel. I plan on being 95 and hell on heels
cwgrlup - I debated when I had my br to have this done.
cwgrlup - sweet lou
janebb - In the desrert that would be hell on a golf cart
kimmers25 - i am glad i did mine separately
kimmers25 - LOL yes it would
cwgrlup - I am glad I didn't do then. I still had so much to learn about food
janebb - So is the fellowship of dcotors important or board certification
kimmers25 - me too..once I had that down i was ready to remove the double muffin top.
janebb - Also how long were you under
kimmers25 - make sure they are board certified. I was under 3.5 hours for the BR and 4 for the tt and lipo
kimmers25 - i did not have any problems with any of the anesthesia.
cwgrlup - that is one of my questions for tomorrow.
cwgrlup - how long the procedure will take no rushing please
janebb - muffin top, did you do a mini or a full...
kimmers25 - they gave me versed and zantac before surgery so I had no sick tummy or anxiety
janebb - One doctor estimated 3 another 5
kimmers25 - I did a full with muscle repair. You can see my pics on the site.
cwgrlup - I got sick after br. but thats the only surgery that has ever happened
janebb - how do i know which is you?
kimmers25 - exactly no rushing...
kimmers25 - i guess that would help. go under tt community and sort by "Comments" I am kimmers25
janebb - The rating system on real self is a little confusing as one person can mess up a good rating, is it
kimmers25 - they say getting sick after a br is common
janebb - is it controlled by people who have only had surgery or can any one comment
kimmers25 - I will pass that message along about the rating system. we appreciate the feedback
cwgrlup - I have some hipnoses tracks on ipod for weight loss wonder if they will let me wear them and listen
kimmers25 - they will probably let you wear those.
janebb - Another question is the garment normally included in the cost.
kimmers25 - if you have a review created you can rate your doctor. you do need the review though
cwgrlup - don't know if I will hear the message while under/
kimmers25 - some do include it and others make you buy it separately. each doc is different
cwgrlup - mine are included
janebb - Is it washable...a month is along time..
kimmers25 - I never wore one..my doc was wonderful and did not push it. so of course i didnt
janebb - Is there a way to read the individual reviews from each individual
kimmers25 - yes you can wash them by hand so make sure to have a couple of them
kimmers25 - yes you can. go into a specific profile and you can read everything
kimmers25 - http://www.realself.com/review/madison-wi-full-tummy-tuck-lipo-excellent-results link to my review
janebb - I tried but could only get 1.5 reviews when they said there were 8
cwgrlup - oh my goodness we found a kitten in the barn and had to bring it in the house just a little thing
kimmers25 - so you went under the tt community and then the reviews tab?
kimmers25 - oh how cute..i love kitties
janebb - just looked at your pictures....hottie now

janebb - I dont rememeber how I found the review, there are several sights. One of the Doctors has not heard
