So 2 more wks to go, seems like such a long time.. but ive been waiting to have this done since after I had my first son. He is 16 yrs old n that s how long ive been suffering with this body. I am finally gonna make my wish come true. Im having surgery w/Dr CArdenas, Im 34 yrs old 5'3" n weigh 160lbs to me thats a whole lot of wt but when I met w Dr Cardenas she told me that for that wt I looked pretty good said If I wanted I could loose 5-7lbs Im having Lipo to the underarms, bra line, flanks inner thighs, tummy tuck and fg. not sure how many ccs i will be getting becasue the day of the consult the dr said I would not need to have the fg to the buttock but of course I insisted that I wanted to get a bit more volume n add some to the hips cause i have no hips what so ever. I so so need to get ready for sx, the only thing that I have so far are my vitamedica supplements n thats it...I just dont know what to get I have no idea what i need...Im planning to stay at Beauty CAre Recovery House Or i should say hotel cause they r temporarly closed but hopefully they r able to offer same accomodations at the hotel that they r gonna have me stay in...I will post some before pxs as soon as I know how n then some after pixs right after my sx

So excited only have a wk left before my sx....So I called my PS office to ask what would they recommend that I take with me to be prepared for my post op, cause I have been reading n researching so much, n honestly did not think that I was prepared but she said all I really needed was comfy clothes and slippers causse at the recovery house they would provide everytlhing else.

Has been 2 months since my surgery and still not pleased with my results..recovery was not easy and there is days that I still have burning sensation in areas that I had lipo ...

I stayed at beauty care for 7 days and I loved all the nurses there. When I have my breast augmentation I don't plan on staying there that long because I don't feel it was necessary to be there that long.


How are you feeling now and what have you been doing for after care?? I hope everything is coming together better. Take care chica

She was the only one i had aconsult w in Mexico..had other consults here in the states I really liked her but now wish I would of gone to other Drs..I hope that when I go see her she could do a revision cause im not happy w results she was also going to do lipo underarms and i still have all my fat there..i honestly thought she had taken all that out cause as soon as i woke up they had to put a compression around that area cause i got a hematoma ad bruised my whole left arm...Im just hoping that she cilould fix me up cause I need to go back for my boobie lift and i would not goback to her if she doesnt fix what needs to be fixed
