Finally Ready to Have my Tt, Unsure if I Should Travel Abroad or Stay Local - Allentown, PA

Im a 36 yr old mother of 3 girls, 18, 12 &10 yrs old. Im 5' 2" 175lbs. I was always thin until I had my first daughter. I went from 115lbs to 135lbs. By the time I got pregnant w my 2nd child I was 164lbs and made it to 208lbs, had my 3rd and lost some weight. I have tried every diet, pill and workout possible with no success. I could not afford to do this before but Im ready. I know I want the tt for sure and my family is supportive but they dont really understand why I want this so bad. I want to be active again and share physical activities with my family which I refrain from doing now because I feel embarrassed. I have gone through depression treatment for the past 5 yrs due to my self esteem being so low. I am thinking about having a breast augmentation as I am currently a small B and feel like my body is just not proportionate. I am Latina and have wide hips and just feel abnormal. I have my appt for a consultation on 3/6/13 here in PA but have also consulted with a dr in Ecuador that would do the tt, breast augmentation and liposculture for about $5000 but I am afraid if something goes wrong once I come back no PS here will want to help me. I came in here to read the reviews and I love it. Thanks to all who have shared their experiences good and bad I feel more confident.

Tomorrow I am going for my consultation and I'm very excited and nervous at the same time. Even though I have been reading about the procedure for many years now I don't even know what to ask. Hopefully I will be able to ask the right questions to make my decision.

Ok so I just got my quote from Dr. Yily de los Santos and I'm having my sx June 17, 2013. OMG I'm so excited. I need to know how to send the deposit. She gave me the bank information but don't know how to do it. Pay Pal. Any and all advice and information will be greatly appreciated.
