okay. It's official I am ready to get the tummy tuck that I have been dreaming of for the last 8 years. I have been putting it off for so long but now the time has come to do something for myself, I am so nervous but yet I am very excited. I cannot wait to schedule my surgery...... I am still weighing my options asfar as a surgeon is concerned. But I am set on a date of February 2014. All I know is this has got to go!!!!!

Hi, I am happy with my results and Dr. Galiano is great. I was very scared and he always eased my fear. I am now working on my scar...it is flat on one side but raised on the other. I will take some recent pics.

Thanks !!!!!

A minor setback for a major comeback!!!

Hi ladies sorry I've been absent , but I have been going through it. I just recently broke up with my boyfriend of 4 years I found out he was living a double life. SMH. Needless to say my financial situation will be a little bit tighter, which will push my surgery back probably all the way to February or March of next year. its a shocker and a thorn in my side for something like this to happen at a time like this when I thought I would be able to treat myself to the body that I've been dreaming of for so long, but even with out him I will get it done! I just hate that I have to wait, when I was so close October!!!! I'll do my best to stay out of the slump and keep posting. Happy healing to all you ladies and thanks for the inspiration I'll see you on the flat side, soon;-)

I've been waiting on this day for what seems like FOREVER, but the count down is finally here. Getting my TT, BBL, and BA. EXACTLY 50 DAYS TO A NEW ME. I'm beyond excited. My deposits are paid just waiting on my passport. My bestie is accompanying me on this journey and I wouldn't have it any other way! She been there with me since the 8th grade, my rider chick. lol. I have compresion and circulation stockings, front zip bras, and looking for a good faja or other body compression device. Don't know what else to say here, just keeping everyone posted. My official date is April 17, 2014 with Dr. Pantoja. please feel free to give me any pointers, as far as what to pack, healing tips, anything will help. Again thanks for listening and for all of your support.

Hey Hun, you not getting a breast lift right? Maybe I can come down to meet Dr P when your down!
  • Reply
I'm actually debating on whether or not I want to get the lift with implants. he said he can do it with the scar only around the nipple (periarreolar lift), It will give me a more natural look I just want more fullness, but my main concern was not having a huge scar on my boobs lolbs.
My boobs are NON EXISTENCE and HANGS south...LOL...I need a LIFT and VOLUME :)

bye bye bad body!!!!! Exactly one month ago :-) :-) :-) :-)

it is so official, I just received my passport in the mail!!!! is exactly 31 days to go until the new me... bye bye saggy boobs and and baby mama stomach. hehehe. its almost surreal all I have to do now is get my fajas, pads, arnica gel, and Bromeline pills..... might be forgetting to add a few things to my list but I think I'll get it together by the time it's time to go. I'm so excited I think I'll start packing tomorrow *too stoked* here are some pre op pictures, the next pictures I post will be my surgical markings!!!! Dr. P here I come!

They are and I hope so... My son is teething and keep getting fevers so it makes me want to stay home... He's only 11 months and has 10 freaking teeth... I am going to worry about him the whole time I'm there.... I know the fathers love their baby's just as much but not many be on the kids the way us women be.... Anywho have you done any shopping for this new body coming soon.... Are you carrying cash... I don't have my pass port so I wonder will I be held up at the boarder line... Man I need to take a chill pill. Maybe go get a massage to calm my nevers.....
