Hi RS ladies!!!! I am 23 y.o RN mother of 2. Ive...
Hi RS ladies!!!! I am 23 y.o RN mother of 2. Ive been with my fireman bf since we were teenagers. Needless to say my body has taken a beating. Im 5'2 155lbs. Pre-preg i was 130lbs. I love my hips butt n thighs 43" hips, in my culture thick is better i jus hate my boobs n tummy!! I had a consultation at Pascual MD with Dr. Mcadoo. Im sooo excited borderline obsessed!!! I unfortunately tried to finance but my credit took a beating while i was uninsured in nursing school and was hospitalized for ruptured ovarian cysts. Now im making good money and able to get rid of my flab my credit is killing me. Im down bc my bf says he will cosign if i save $6000 on my own ???? ive made a 1200 payment to the office n by the end of summer will be dwn to a balance if $8k but i want to hv it done in september to be bikini ready for my bday in november (i live in miami) n i want to tk him on a vacay to jamaica for his bday n i MUST be sexy by then!!!! I live on RS DAY AMS NIGHT looking at profiles n mommy makeover posts waiting to get mine. Its very depressing bc i hv a small petite frame n with my faja on im like ridiculously sexy bt that comes off n the flab wins. Thank god i wear forgiving scrubs to work but im tired of looking 43 at 23. Oh yea my consultation was for a mommy makeover TT, BL, BA with 600cc HP silicone and lipo of upper/lower back. Im a 34 droopy C 32" waist and 43"hips which i love but im not happy with the upper part and i needed to vent!!!
Change of Plans
Hello RS fam! Okay so for the last 2 months or so, Ive been having reservations. I was scheduled to have mommy makeover, started paying. Made payment of 1200 and stopped. Fo whatever reason, gut said, uhhhhh put it in savings instead. Anyway, I am completely obsessed with this site, and started comparing and thinking. I say all of that to say, Im not sold on going to my original Dr. I made a consultation with Dr. Freiman for tomorrow. I have 2000 saved up so far in my savings, and on the site they have silicone implants for 3500, TT 3500. I figured for that price and a lift upwards of 8500 possibly, I could have my surgery for sure by the end of January beginning of Feb. And, hopefully I could receive a "professional" discount for being a RN (I pray) anything helps. The other Dr. was 13000.... which was a hell of a lot more. Besides, I can see work that the Dr's have done. Which brings me to my next question.... should I go to Ortega or Frieman. I want to change my consult to Dr. Ortega now, I'm a mess. His results look pretty nice as well. Oh My!! I just want to get super sexy, super quick!!! LOL any suggestions?
The skies have opened up!!!!!
Okay ladies, So I posted yesterday about my reservations about Pascual MD etc etc. so, I had a consultation with Dr. Friedman today that went AMAZING!!!!!!! I love him. Very straight forward, knowledgable and actually gives a crap about your wellbeing post check! Unlike the jerk heads over at Pascual Office in Aventura. I will still get a TT, BL, BA w/silicone and side lipo. HOWEVER!!!!!!!!! He advised with a lift 600cc will pretty much "fall out in my cereal one morning" so he puts it lol so his max will be 421cc not exactly what I wanted, but I'm sure ill love them all the same.... I feel completely blind sided, like those mo-foes over at Pascual office in Aventura where in it for $$$$$$$ and alot of it $1400 to be exact. So needless to say Im sold. My wonderful lovely BF financed the procedure for me and I paid the difference... ???????????????????? i love him!!! Okay so this is where it gets truly F***ed up!!! Their mommy makeover special ran me $7500!!! I feel guilty for even mentioning that price it feels like a steal. I mean i feel like i should be arrested. Thats half the price of Pasual and so many beautiful ladies can vouch for Dr. Freidman on Real Self. So, I of course had no surgery at Pascual office but I left a $500 deposit day one to lock in $13500 from that sales woman Irivette. Man am i stupid. And oh i get even stupider!! I started making payments in which they will NOT refund me saying non refundable up to $1000 in deposits. But my thing is ny deposit was only $500 $700 was my payments... Like really??? Im so glad i found Real Self that saved me upwards of 6500!!!! I emailed their HR guy to get the truth about the deposit because I feel like I just gave $1200 away... But I wont trip because im Coordinating with my BF so that I can take time off for my surgery and hell be able to stay home and help me with the kids and stuff. September looks in the making from my view point... Im so excited I feel numb.
BEWARE OF PASCUAL MD IN AVENTURA
Im fuming!! Im not only mad at myself for being so silly! But im also pretty pissed that I gave these people $1200 of my hard earned money! The sales people are Just that SALES PEOPLE!!! They dont care about you and only want your money!! I basically lost $1000. I guess you live and learn and so im getting my procedure with a Dr that actually has customers that you can see and is not like McDonalds of plastic surgery!
The Date is Set!
September 22!!!! Im so excited, Im nervous all at the same time. Im jus hoping everything works out with my job and getting the right time off. Im also nervous about my 15 month old daughter who loves herself a good "picky up" 2 weeks of no snuggles is gonna be hard. What are some things ill need to get prepped for surgery??? I forgot the preop package I was so excited I walked out without it lol
The countdown is ON!!!!!
Hey ladies!!! So, the countdown is on. Im super excited still dealing with the Pascual MD situation. I have receipts and everything supporting my situation and they still will not refund my money minus the deposit. They feel as if they should keep it ALL. I hadnt even set a surgery date or anything .
Anyway.... Ill refocus because it makes me angry every time I talk about it. I wish i found you guys first, n ill be $1200 richer and a lot happier.
Im less than a month away from the flat n sexy side but I don't know what to buy??? I know I need colace and coconut water LOL but whatelse do I need???!!!! Lol HELP ME!!!! I don't know what else to expect...
Less than 3 weeks away!!
So i bumped my surgery up to 9/18 because my job did not approve my vacation for the entire two weeks I requested. Which bothered me a bit but healthcare is all about politics and 2 senior nurses requested October 2 -6 so i had to revise mine. But whatever, im going to be sexier sooner lol. Flat side here I come. Ive made a list of things I think ill need. Im ready
Family BeachDay!!! Aaaarrrrggghhh
17 days before my surgery and my family wants to go to the beach!!! I look horrendous in my bikini but im wearing it to remember how disgusting i look and to celebrate my last beach day as a fat mama!!!

Hi Rs family! So im 3 days post op and im sore and swollen all over!! Theres this sharp pain in my right hip wen ever i move my right leg. The top of my tummyvs really swollen n my breast are hard n high he gave me 397 cc silicone n they are nice size for me . I hate sitting around helplessly. Sitting down day n nite is hard work. I jus want to heal. I was kinda dowbln bc my bf said he doesn't like my breast. He's supportive n helpful tho but he likes me before which is nice but i cant hv long saggy breast and lumpy fat belly. So im doin ths for me to feel hot about myself . Im gonna take a bath today n ill post pics.

Drains are minimally draining n gttn lighter. I peeked at my tummy super swollen no idea wat my belly button looks like i jus wanted to gt changed up lol thanks for the love happy healing!!!
10 days post op... Not all good news
Hey ladies! Well I'm 10 days post op, n my tummy is healing beautifully, wish I could say the same for my breasts. I developed a hematoma on the right side, and I'm going to my PS tomorrow to see what I have to do about it. The left is awesome size and everything but my right has been bothering me for days and at my one week post op my doctor was not there for religious holiday and the nurse obviously is not able to identify complications because she kept assuring me it was fine and just do massages. But I'm s nurse and I know my body. So that's where I'm at now.
I'm Having trouvé uploading pics
I keep trying to post pics idk what's the problem new iPhone 6 not cooperating
The VERDICT ISSS.....
No HEMATOMA!!! Went to Dr Freiman today and he said I have no hematoma to massage be patient and praise his feet in a month post op lol I have to say my Breast feel better today. I iced them yesterday and stressed about them for four days straight!!! I'm super swollen and I'm worried of course because I'm not "flat" like some ladies are post op.... Idk I'm gonna work out like a dog as soon as im able to. Happy healing ladies...
Need honest feedback
Here's my results and I want to know exactly how Im healing. I feel like I'm too puffy and that it may not be swelling but instead more like he didn't make me really flat....
Dr. Freiman does really nice work. Aside from my complication I'm satisfied overall. HOWEVER the office staff is not up to par. The patient coordinator is full of it. She does not follow through or follow up with anything . In your presence she's absolutely amazingly sweet but once you leave the office you're on your own. Their supposedly 24 hr on call process is Bologna. You don't get call backs. If your doctor is unavailable they apparently don't cover each other's patients. So therefore if you have a problem you're on your own. For the price and work he's worth going to but if you are looking for a professional atmosphere and reliable follow up care with clear concise answers then probably not for you if you develop complications like me
