Excited about my tummy Tuck and Breast Lift - Columbus, GA

I went for my consulation with Dr. Pagadala in...

I went for my consulation with Dr. Pagadala in Columbus,Ga. After talking with him I knew that he was the right doctor for the job. I am planning to have my surgery around June. I am taking off 2.5 weeks for recovery. I hope that's enough time because, I work in the hospital and I stand and walk most of the time. I live in birmingham but, after reading all the great reviews on this doctor and meeting him , I feel comforable. Yes, I have visited other doctors in my area and state but, didn't get that comfortable feel. I will update as I count down to a new me.
congrats on your decision to have your TT and BL!! I went to the same office but my sx is Dr. Cochran. I think 2.5 should be ok, but everyone is different. I would say to purchase a good compression garment as the one they give you for the TT is just a binder, and there is a difference. I dont know, they might have something different when you have a BL in conjunction with your TT. If you dont mind me asking, what did they quote you for the BL, as that is next on my list.

I chose to do both at the same time for 7800. I think is a great price. I am not getting in plants just a lift.

counting down to a new me

Just over thinking

Has anyone taking arnica? I wish I could move my surgery date up but, I have to wait til after my daughter graduate from college next month. I wonder do I need to rent a recliner. How many sport bras should I buy?
I'm still sleeping in my recliner at 2 weeks post op! I'm a side sleeper so I cannot sleep in my bed until my sides no longer feel sore. My recliner has been a lifesaver. If you don't use a recliner you're gonna need to prop your back and knees with over 8 pillows as ladies on here have posted. It's just better to get/rent a recliner if you can. All the best!

Congratulations on such a huge decision!! Just think, this gives you time to get your items for healing. And without the rush. Can't wait to see afters!!!

Thanks Pr3tty_1n_P1nk, I will post after pictures. I can not wait to finally see the flip gone.

waiting on the new me

As I visit and read so many stories, I wonder how am I going to handle the pain. Do I need to start taking my iron pills to help with anemia. I Look At My Body In The Mirror And THINK about how I about to get my body back.
I will see about one. How many bras did you buy?

I never did anything to my breasts so I don't know...I'm guessing 2-4...search in RS for "breast lift" maybe you'll find the info you need.

count down!!!

The time is getting near for a new me. A new flat stomach and a pair of breast that will sit up without a bra. I have received my package from the doctor office for me to review and sign. I may not be ready for the pain but, I am ready for the flip stomach to go. I just got to get my supply list together. I am ready! !!
I'm scheduled for June 5th. You're going to look amazing! So excited for you!

Thank you jovie313. . We are going to be on the flat side for the summer.. I think about the scar but, the scar will outweigh this flip.

So, I went to get my blood drawn. I hope everything will be okay. I have had iron problems all my life but, I had started taking iron complete by gnc. I been taking them for over three weeks. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Congrats and good luck! I had a breast reduction last summer. I found these really thin bras (like a nylon material) at Marshalls & TJ Maxx. I wore them at home. Then, when I went out, I wore sport's bras. I found them on nomoreracks.com. They were inexpensive, comfortable and you get a multipack...

I'm another June girl! My TT is a week after yours :) looking forward to hearing how you go!

12 days and counting down to the new me!!!

As my surgery approach, I have do many mix feelings going on. My blood work came back fine. I am glad I started taking the gnc iron complete because, I have always had problems with my iron. I am starting to know I need to get my house in order and start buying my supplies for after care. I hate I can't tell my family or friends because, they wouldn't understand.
Hello copper girl. How are you doing? Did they ever give you any advice as what to do if you anemic? I've been all my life and I have my consultation on the 3rd with cochran.

Lol I read your response on my blog. Hotatlanta is beautiful. You'll love it here. Unfortunately your not here long, but its non stop entertainment. As for Miami I'm just ready to get there and get home. Its so expensive there. So how long did you take off of work for your recovery. I teach elementary school so I'll be off all summer.

random thoughts

I am staying at the homewood suites by Holton and the staff was sweet here. They brought me a get well basket full of food and a get well card. I would recommend this hotel if anyone come here for surgery. They made sure I had extra pillows and that food basket came in handle during the night. I guess I had image the pain would have been worst but, I feel sore. I have to go see Dr Sumanth pagadala this morning before I leave. He has a great stuff. Every Body was kind and helpful to me.

I am better then yesterday. After I took a shower and ate alittle, I went to sleep. I find myself getting full quicker. I don't care because, I don't want to stretch my stomach out again. My drain haven't been putting out much so, I hope when I head back next Thursday dr Sumanth pagadala will take it out. I do believe I am going to have to move to the couch today because, the bed is killing me. You know ladies, I went and brought all these supplies and my doctor just told me to use anti bacteria soap and water and allow the strips to fall off. I guess the supplies will come in handle later.

My before and after photos

drain out

I went to dr. Sumanth pagadala top get my drain out. It felt weird when he was pulling the drain out. He said everything looks good but, to come back sooner if I starts to feel fluid (like a water bed feel) around my stomach. I went and walked around the mall and that plus the long drive back home wore me out. He look the strips off and my cuts looks really good. He could me not to put anything on them right now. Loving me results.

I went to columbus for my second check up. I had my stitches removed from my navel. I don't have to be back for two months. Yesterday, I was able to hit the gym treadmill (walking). I just have to work with the soreness in my stomach. My breast are doing good. Both tt and bl scars are healing very good. My doctor said on my next week he will see if I will need to do scar therapy. In the meantime, he said I can use bio oil. Thanks for all the support and encouragement from everyone.
Well lady we have both over come to worse part of recovery now were on our way to seeing results. How do you feel. Are you doing anything else besides walking. You look fabulous. Aren't you proud of having a TT. I am.

Best decision ever!!!!

My breasts are sore but, my stomach is doing much better. I am so excited about my results. I am so glad I choose the right doctor to bring my dream of having a flat stomach again and to finally have my boobs sitting back up. I could not have asked for a better experience. My scars are looking and healing good. I do have a little swelling during the day but nothing major. I am still out walking soon. I know I have three more weeks before I can really do a good good workout.
Do you think it is possible to take care of a baby after two weeks again? That is my fear. I will have help the first two weeks but after that I won't be completely on my own I will have to care for the baby again.
Reply
I think so, I have more soreness then pain. I had to babysit my niece and I did ok. I had my boobs and tt done at the same. Everybody pain level is different. I wish you the best and I hope everything will work out for you.

disposable stitches

Hey ladies, I wonder have anyone experience a few of there disposable stitches coming out? As I was running my finger over my boobs and tummy scar with neosporin, I would feel something that felt like a stitche. True enough it was, one each boob and one down by my hair. I called the doctor office and the nurse explained that it can happen sometime and wanted me to come in today so, the doctor could take them out. I told her 2.5 hours was too far to drive for something small enough for me to handle. I just didn't want to miss up my great results. She gave me the go ahead and I took them out myself. They suppose to dissolve under the skin but sometimes they be pushed out .
She done said stop the press lol you too funny...she does look good in them jeans ;)

breast leak

I woke up this morning with my shirt soaked with fluid. My left breast have been more sore then my right breast. I called the doctor office and less then 5 mind the on call doctor called me back and I described the fluid color. I told him I was feeling a knot (if you had milk in your breast from breastfeeding), he said it was accumulated of fluid and that it had to come out so, I wasn't in a panic shock but, I just wanted to make sure I didn't need to head to columbus this morning. The on call doctor said allow it to drain and don't put anything on it till tomorrow. It was good to know the doctor was a phone call away.
I'm jealous of your skinny physique, you look fantastic. You don't look swollen. Has your swelling gone away now. Wow you look Soooo goooood. Wow Ms Skinny. Ugh I'm jealous.lol I go in November for my last procedures

Her Ms. DR7423, thank you for sure kind words. I only swell up when I over do it. I wear my shap wear under my clothes, sometimes my binder at home or on a quick run to the store, and my walmart wrist trimmer when I go walking. I need to get this hips back down to a comfortable size.

day one of work

Hey ladies. I figure I would jump on here to tell you how my first night at work. My 12 hrs shift is coiming to an end. I expected that I would be hurting or something but, actually I feel okay. I wore my shape wear but, believe you me, I will not be wearing it again to work. I was only wearing my shape wear garment when I would leave the house for my date night or family time so, I would say a few hours not 12 hrs. Well. Lesson learned!!. I will have to wear my binder to work. I wish I could take off my shapewear now. I am totally glad I took off three weeks be cause walking on these hard hospital floors can beat you down. One night down and two more to go.
Hey Ms Copper girl, I noticed below you comments on not finish with your journey, what else are you going o do? I don't see any flaws in your figure.

Loving my flat stomach

I am sorry ladies it's been awhile since I have posted pictures. I am still loving my flat stomach. I feel good going to the gym with my tank top. My breasts is another story but, my I am so glad I got it done and I am so glad I went with the right doctor. I started using silicone but it seems to be making my scar darker then lighter. So, I think I will use just bio oil for now. I hope everyone who was my surgery buddy is going good and for the ladies that is planning to have their stomach done, I wish you the best.

Hey ladies

I am sorry it's been awhile since I updated. I am loving my choices.
Hey, love your latest pictures! You look so good! My tummy tuck is in about 33 hours and I am starting to freak out. Getting very scared about the pain. I've had abdominal surgery before, but the incision was not nearly as big as the one for the tummy tuck. Just feeling very scared, and I feel sad that I won't be able to do as much for my daughter and husband for a while. Just curious... did they do your IV through your neck? His nurse told me they normally go through the neck, and I'm so nervous about that. Also, how long was it before you could shower? Thank you for all the help so far!

Dr Sumanth pagadala, is a great doctor. He Took Out Time To Answer All Of My Questions And To Calm My Nerves down. He made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend him and she staff. He said he was going to give me back my body . I felt his price was good. He didn't make me feel as if I was just dollar. Great bedside manners. And the nurses staff is so sweet and caring.
