I am 23 years old and the mother on a 4 year old...
I have since lost 100+ pounds, and have excess skin and 'sagging parts' to say the least. It is hard to be young and have the breasts of a 50 year old, as they have been quite large my whole life, but began sagging horribly after my pregnancy. I dream of wearing a bikini again and being comfortable in my own skin.
I have been reading reviews on this site for a few months now, and have decided to go with Dr. Robles based on all the good reviews and great results posted. I am unsure of my surgery date, but I have already obtained a quote for a Tummy Tuck, Lipo on Waist and Breast Lift at $5,900. I currently weigh 195 lbs and am 5'6". Dr. Robles' assistant has suggested that I lose 10-20 pounds before my surgery in order to have the best results possible.
$5,900 is a lot of money, considering the cost of living here in Calgary is exceptionally high. This is why I don't think I will be having my surgery for another half a year or more, as this will give me time to save up the funds that I will need. It will also give me a chance to lose some more weight.
I am unsure of whether or not I should bring someone with me for the surgery or not. If anyone has any advice or comments that they can share with me, that would be greatly appreciated!
Already Buying Supplies
-Face towels and cloths
-Lightweight cotton robe
-Nightgown that opens in the front
-Rosa mosqueta oil
-Yeast infection medication
I am undecided as to whether I should purchase the VitaMedica Recovery Support System as well as the Arnica Montana. Has anyone taken these supplements, any advice on them?
If there are additional things I should consider taking with me, please let me know!
Trying to Weigh My Options
Dr. Baez is the one doctor who said I could do all of the procedures I originally wanted, here is a copy and paste from the email I received from her:
Price for the surgeries that you are requesting lipo to tummy tuck, abdomen, waist, back, flanks, inner thighs and BBL (including hips) plus breast lift is US$ 4800 dollars
All of the other doctors are around the same price (Dr. Baez's and Dr. Camilo's did not include accommodations), but Baez is the only one who included lipo of my back, inner thighs as well as a BBL.
I am still pretty much undecided, but I am leaning more towards Dr. Baez now. If anyone has any experience with this doctor, I would love to hear from you!
Finally Decided... Going with Baez!
I hope that there are more reviews to come on Baez!
Time Flies By!
I dream of my sx all the time, and just wish that it was sooner! There are lots of Baez beauties emerging that are looking fabulous, so I can't wait till I have my dream body. I just hope that she can give me what I want, considering my body before surgery.
I went to the doctor a month ago to get my blood tested, and my hemo is at 15.8! I am taking something called Blood Builder as well as a multivitamin, so I think my levels will stay up there
Anyways, sorry for not updating for a while, I will be sure to at least update every 1-2 weeks!
It's been exactly 3 months since my last review! time flies by so quick. I am no longer going with Dr. Baez, I have changed my mind and am now going with Dr. Contreras. I believe Dr. Baez is a very safe and caring doctor, but I don't think she will be able to give me the results that I want. I don't believe she is aggressive enough with the lipo, as I've heard from lots of other dolls. Dr. Contreras quoted me $5,000 for TT, lipo, BL and BBL. I think this a very good price! I can't believe I will be in the DR in less than 2 1/2 months! I can't wait!
Changed My Mind Again
41 More Days!
I have been reading a lot of the reviews on here, and they are so informative and inspirational! I'm glad there are women that take the time out of their day to blog and post reviews.
I will definitely keep everyone up to date regarding my surgery, as much as I can!
21 More Days!
I've already got my bags packed pretty much, just waiting for the 31st when I will be taking off in an airplane bound for the DR! It's getting so close and I'm SO nervous, yet I'm super excited all at once. I'm still trying to lose 10 pounds, it's so hard. I am getting back on the bandwagon today, because I won't be able to get my surgery if I don't drop these last few pounds!
I'm bringing my mom with me so I won't be alone when I am over there, I really wish my bf could come with me, but he has to stay back and work (his job won't let him take that much time off). I'm going to miss him lots, but I'm going to miss my little guy who's 4 1/2 much more. I pray that everything goes well and God keeps me safe, so that I may return safe and sound.
Leaving for Airport Tomorrow
On the Other Side
11 Days PO
So I figured I would give you a quick update. I will do a full update when I get home, as it is very hard to type long reviews on my phone. I am doing very well, all the bruises are healing nicely and the swelling has gone down A LOT. I had a 3XL Faja after surgery, and I am already down to a size LARGE! Anyways I have attached a pic of me with a shirt on, will take more when I get home.
No More Rolls!
New Pics - 2 1/2 Weeks PO
As promised, I am posting a couple of pics of the incisions. They are healing very nicely, save for a small line above my belly button which I think has something to do with how tight my garment was. I will do a full review of the surgery/recovery house soon.
3.5 Week Update
I ordered some lipo foam last week, and already got it in the mail. I have it under my garment and wife beater, it feels so nice against my skin. The garment isn't digging in as much!
Conclusion: Need Revision
Email from Disla
Hi hope you are doing ok but i do not think is a goodidea to come back to me i recommend you go to another doctor as you are so unsatisfed with what i did and you are so unhappy with the results . I do wish you a better luck with someone else and i am pretty sure you are going to get the results you are looking for because begining from the type iof mass body .and type of skin you had now is going to be easier
Dra Disla seems to be a caring doctor when you first meet her, but as soon as I was upset with my results she was a different person. She refused to even consider giving me a revision! Please avoid her at all costs, I know lots of women who are unhappy about their results and/or got an infection!
