Gastric Bypass Done in 2004 - Miami, FL

Although I had a minor complication I would still do the surgery again. I have always had weight issues my entire life and this was the only solution that has allowed me to maintain my weight for a long period of time. Otherwise I was gaining weight every year exponentially. I lost about 76 pounds in total but never actually used my tool (smaller stomach) and ate as normal. I would have had a more successful rate had I followed the strict diet regimen.

ISO plastic surgeon in Atlanta

I was 250 pounds then went down to my lowest 176 pounds. Now I have gained some weight and am today 195 pounds. I am seeking a plastic surgeon who can do mommy makeover on me in Atlanta. Here are my before and after photos.

I went for consultation with Dr Patricia Yugeros which she is an amazing doctor as of Nov. 2014. She took her time to explain everything to me. I finally got my pannicolectomy approved through my insurance Cigna. Then I decided it was go time for the rest of the surgeries needs. I had breast lift with implants, lipo of the flanks (hips and sides) , pannicolectomy removed and full tummy tuck. The first night of recovery was pretty rough. I was in severe pain and the next day I didn't really eat a lot so I passed out at the hospital. They called "code red" since I passed out but thankfully the nurses were there to help me up and they checked my vitals. I had to get two bags of blood transfusion since I had lost so much blood. The next day I was still in pain but better and Dr Yugueros came to talk to me and told that I was just weak and normal. She was so understanding and her care for her patients shows. Then the third day I finally went home. Today is the 4th day post op. I can move and walk around hunchback but the pains have subsided significantly. I have the binder on and will see my doctor this Thursday to get my old binder removed and gauzes taken out. So far so good, this is a very painful procedure. It is not for the faint of heart. But I know in a few weeks I will see the results. I can't wait to see my new body. Here are photos of my current situation. I will keep you guys posted.

6 days post op (Feb. 12, 2015)

So today I went for the follow up appointment with Dr. Patricia Yugueros. As usual her staff, Maria and Wanda greeted me with such a warm smile and hello. Wanda was able to remove all my precious gauges, she removed my pain pump and she put my new spanx binder. I am so much more comfortable now. My breasts seem very swollen along with my belly and sides. I have large bruising from the lipo on my hips and my breasts are very sore. So far my body is healing as normal according to Dr Yugueros and she says the worse is over. I am still taking my medicine, the antibiotic, pain medicine, muscle spasms and also the blood clot at night before bed. So far I have not had any nausea and I think that is because I am gastric bypass patient from 10 years ago so that medicine was not needed for me. Otherwise I feel much more movable on my new binder and my tummy is so flat. It is so unbelievably amazing because I have not had a flat stomach in over 20 years!! This is a life changer for me. I am so excited to see what the next few weeks bring. I will post more pics as the time goes.
