Hello, ladies, I just want to say everything is...

Hello, ladies,
I just want to say everything is normal, I guess... I Did My surgery with Yily de los Santos on May 28, 2013.
I Will never forget that day I dared to go for surgery, first I forgot to take the blue pill when the doctor gave it to me. She marked my body, And They took me to the OR and I said good bye to my friend. :-( my worst experience was while they were doing my back, I drifted into this weird sense that I was floating watching myself on the surgery bed, it was so scary. I saw everything black and white and it was such a vivid dream while I was asleep that I saw the doctor lipo auctioning on my back. It was horrible, the next day they woke me up and I was crying, literally sobbing yelling " they're not done! Someone take me back in!! They're not done with me! " I don't know why I reacted this way but that's the affect the anesthesia gave me. Now I feel like I married my girdle, because I can't ever be without it. I feel like if I don't have it on I'll fall apart. I physically feel so different that without it I'm insecure. Another thing, I'm not sure if it's because Of my age or is that I don't tolerate pain too much but I saw so many young girls who seemed so fine and painless, holding their drainage walking around as if nothing they've haven't underwent surgery, and I was just in awe. At that point I was regretting it all. I do regret not getting a tummy tuck, although the doctor did recommend it because of my age and the fact that I've had 3 kids. She emphasized that after she does lipo I wasn't gonna be happy with the results because I was going to have extra skin on my stomach, although I had the extra $1,000 for a tummy tuck, I refused just because I didn't wish to have a scar. But now I wish I did because I have a little pouch of skin. Even though it's empty, it looks as if it's fat and it's not. I don't regret my lipo though, because despite the pouch - I have a small waist, a big butt :) and no fat on my stomach or back. I'm happy with my results as far as a lipo goes and fix.

Hey guys, just letting you know that this is her daughter's page. She accidentally posted a review on my profile, as it was always signed into my laptop, lol. Sorry for the inconvenience, I'll be deleting my account soon as I don't know how to delete the individual review. I haven't had surgery myself, but will this year. I'll leave you all with an updated pic of my mom in regular clothes :) Thanks for the support!

Dr Yily de Los santos was very professional and caring. I couldn't ask for more. She was very clear and direct telling me how I was gonna feel If I didn't do a tummy tuck. I did only lipo anyways, she was right. She provided follow up visits any time I wanted . The amount of money was the one we agreed in the email. I happy with her service. Thank you Dr Yily.

Congrats! Recovery is harder when we are older. I am in need of a tummy tuck too. Be glad you did not have it yet. Being under anesthesia longer is more risky. You can get the TT later. You look great!
