Future Markmann Mami...Finally!!! - Ellicott City, MD

I've been researching this procedure for years and...

I've been researching this procedure for years and I finally booked my surgery today :-) I'm so happy (and a little nervous) but so grateful to everyone for posting their experiences. Thank you!
I also met someone who had it done a little more than two weeks prior(along with a back lift) while I was at the office. She was still a little stiff but so happy with her results. I couldn't tell because she had baggy sweats on, but her shape was banging from what I could see :-)

OMG...I broke the news to my mom...she's HEATED!!!

And I didn't even tell her the full extent of what I'm having done. I just told her inner thighs. I knew she wouldn't be happy because she's really conservative about cosmetic surgery and, even though I've had surgery before, it makes her nervous. Understandable...but mad though?!? I'll just let her get used to the idea...she'll be ok (hopefully). My mom is my best friend though, so it makes me a little sad :o(

Anyway, I went to Goodwill and got a brand new walker for $10. I intend to use it to help me get in and out of bed, get around the house the first week, and to lean on to use the bathroom (sounds like fun, right?). Then when I'm done with it, I can just donate it back :o) Next on the agenda is a grabber device, female urinal, maxi pads for the vajayjay swelling, some pads for leaking, and...and....why do I feel like I'm missing something? Feel free to chime in :o) I think I'll wait until after the procedure to get more garments because the price includes 3.

Sigh...so I cancelled...

My mom did not take the news well at all...to the point where it was affecting her physically. Her blood pressure went up and stayed up and she couldn't sleep. So I cancelled my procedure about 3 weeks ago. To say I'm disappointed is a gross understatement, but it's a sacrifice I need to make for her (for now). Hoping to revisit it later, and it will definitely be with Dr. Markmann!
I'll still stick around to follow your journeys ....I can't wait to see some of your "afters" even though it will be bitter sweet...
Baltimore Plastic Surgeon

He was so detailed that I almost felt like the consult was getting too long...lol It shows that he genuinely loves what he does and is very knowledgeable. I like the fact that he uses the same team each time and does this procedure at a hospital vs. surgical center. Not knocking surgical centers - I've had other procedures there with no problem but this one is 7.5 hours long.
