Finally Making a Life Changing Decision - Bronx, NY

I had my first son when I was 19. Which I developed more stretch marks then one can imagine! I recently had 2 more children and decided that it is time to get rid of all these stretch marks! Tuesday the 10, I will be going for my TT consultation. I am trying to schedule the TT for ASAP which I believe will be 2 weeks later. I hoping for sooner. On Saturday I will be doing all my blood work with my PCP, so that the day of the consultation all my paper work is ready and all that needs to be done is the scheduling of the procedure. I am very excited about this! I will keep you all posted on my surgery date!

I went to my appointment on Tuesday n saw DR. Nick. He was really nice, made me feel very comfortable. He said i was a great candidate for the procedure, He also complimented me n said wow for a women that has had 3 children you have very tight abdominal muscles. ;) which is nice because that's the only good part about my stomach. Everything sounded great except for when I asked him to book me for surgery, ;( he said the earliest I can be booked for is May 21, 2012. I was a little sad because I was kind of hoping to go to my graduation (June 9 - associates) without a girdle (i wanted a little bit of the swelling to go down) but it's ok. I'll just try to work out a little more so I can have the best results afterwards.

Hello TT sisters, I know its been a while since...

Hello TT sisters,
I know its been a while since I've posted anything but let me keep you all updated on whats going on with me. Since my last post, I told you all how I was going to Jacobi Hospital to get my pocedure done, 2 weeks later I went for a consult at Lennox Hill Hospital, The price is about the same 4700. Which includes Lipo to the flanks, TT, and an over night stay at a hotel right across the street. So Im sticking with Lennox Hill. As for the surgery date, its MAY 8, 2012!! I'm so excited but nervous at the same time. As promised I am posting a pic of my ugly stomach! Proceed with caution!!

Hello ladies, so 6 more days to go! Tomorrow...

Hello ladies,
so 6 more days to go! Tomorrow (May 3, 2012 - Thursday) I will be meeting with the attending DR. and give all my pre op blood/medical clearance work in. I've been a little nervous, but I know I will be fine. I'm not really sure what to have for after the surgery. I have the button up shirt, medication, massive pillows, mederma, bio oil, neosporin, targert brand scar gel, and I plan on buy the scar away strips, with some pineapple. Is there anything else I need?

Hiiii ladies! I'm on the other side! Pain isn't as...

Hiiii ladies! I'm on the other side! Pain isn't as bad as I thought! my procedure started at 11:15 and end at 3! I will say right after surgery I was so mad because the pain was extreme but since 6 it's gone done n I'm more calm and relax! I went to the bathroom a few times. my private nurse rocks, she took great care of
Me! If anyone is going to Lennox hill I highly recommend her! I want to thank all the ladies whom have kept up to date with my progress. Tomorrow I am going to take a pic without the guaze just to show you guys. Btw my scar is super low. Can't wait to show u guys! Xoxo

Hi ladies, as promised here are the pics. The one...

Hi ladies, as promised here are the pics. The one with the guaze was yesterday all the rest r today. I'm finally home. Ive been eating all organic foods and feel great. Now for those who ask the question which is worse c section or tummy tuck? I would definately have to say C section. ive been walking and trying to stay active. I feel n look great.. good luck to all who r going in today!

Hi ladies today I slept most of the day but try to...

Hi ladies today I slept most of the day but try to get up n walk around the house at least 5 - 6 times. I wanna thank you guys so much for your support, it really means a lot to me how you girls have been keeping up with my progress. The drains come out Monday so in pretty excited about that. I've been trying to stand up straight as much as possible. Eating nothing but chia seeds (which my nurse told me is great for weight loss) n chicken salad. Lots of water, coconut water, n dr green juice.

Hello my beautiful TT sisters, Today is POST day...

Hello my beautiful TT sisters,
Today is POST day 3, so here is a full update on me. I have not gone to the bathroom for a BM since before surgery and I havent taken a colace, just because Ive been scared of having the neasea feeling. But I decided to take it about an hour ago. I try to walk around the house as much as I can when I have to go to the bathroom or just to do so. Most of the time its kind of hard for me to get out of bed (my husband usually helps me) but I've been trying my best to do it myself. Today is my first day staying by myself as he will be going back to work today. MNB4784 you asked for pics of different angles so I took these. I absolutely love how low the scar is. I would have never thought I would look like this! Im so excited!

Leslay5005, you inspired me!! I have these consults scheduled and I know they going to charge me arm and a leg for a TT and Lipo. I have 3 def places I will choose and Lenox hill just became my number 3 choice. I just hope I come out looking great just like you!!

What are ur top two choices and why? Im trying to see what options are available. Thank you for any information.

Happinessiskey, My other two are Dra. Robles in santo Domingo because her work is great and for TT, Lipo and fat transfer her price was even better. My other choice is Dr. Perry In MIA, Fl. His work is great too, he just have not got back to me yet he so busy and his assistant said he is behind with checking his emails. What is it that u are having done?

Keep me posted on your surgeon decision. I feel like this is the hardest part trying to find the right PS.

I will. Let me know what u decide also. I think Im leaning more towards Lenox Hill since they've had good reviews, and I believe they are affordable.

I agree, I feel like its either Lenox or in going to DR and let Dra. Robles work her magic on me.

And what are you getting done?

With that quote I was getting TT, Lipo flanks and back, fat transfer to butt.
  • Reply
That not bad at all I juat want a TT and lipo to the flanks and back.
  • Reply
I come to find out that doctors are charging so much for TTs and Lipo. Many are charging by how many areas have to be Lipo. I've been getting high price quotes in the U.S. but I feel like Lenox Hill will quote the best price for this work. I don't know if they do fat transfer at the same time either. I may just do Lipo and butt lift. I'm so undecided :(
