Hello, I am 25 years old and am scheduled to have a tt on april 12th. After graduating high school I lost 100 lbs and for several years have been trying to save up the money to have all this excess skin removed. Finally with the help of my tax return I have enough to have it done!
I had a consultation with a few doctors and by far Dr. D was my choice! He was the only Dr that made me feel comfortable. HE also was very straightforward and was very understanding and listened to me.
I will post pics soon. On April 7th I am going in for my pre op apt. Will let you guys know how it goes.
I had my pre op apt yesterday. I am getting more...

The doctor went over everything with me, He scared me a little with everything he told me, but he said its his job to warn me of all the precautions, but he said since im young, I should heal quickly and be back to work the following Monday. What do you guys think, can I be back to work a week later?
He gave me like 6 different prescriptions, they are so expensive! Especially the lovenox, he gave me a prescription for a week supply and it is $185! OUCH!! :)
I will post pics soon.
WOW! I have been stressing about getting all those...

I looked online for prescription assistance, and I called a local catholic church in my area and they paid for all my prescriptions! Including $240 for the Lovenox! They gave me vouchers to pick up the prescriptions at Publix...HAH! Walmart would never allow something like that! :) God bless that sweet little lady who helped me out today at the church office, and the gentlemen at the publix pharmacy. Lots of hugs and Thank you's to the both of you!!!
Just One more day...SO NERVOUS!!! Butterflies!...

CANT WAIT AND SO HAPPY.
In regard to the surgery, I was a nervous reck 'what if I dont wake up" "what if theirs conmplications" They gave me a some happiness in my iv, pushed me into surgery room and a minute later I was waking up, asking why they haavent done the surgery yet??
Little to my knowledge it was done, I didnt like the fealing of waking up from the anastheshia.
Oh yes, my doctor has been amazing, also his staff. THANKS SO MUCH AND GOD BLESS

put the head in and soap it all up!!! HEHE
I got soap in my eyes and my back hurt afterwards, but it was so worth it...FELT SO GOOD TO BE CLEAN AFTERWARDS! I just got done painting my nails and it feels pretty good putting on sweat pants, and not having to roll them up to cover a hanging belly. I LOVE MY BELLY!!! Even with my binder on.
I see alot of pics of girls taking off their binder at home...is that safe? I would love to see my belly standing infront of a mirror. Ive only seen it laying on the dr's table when he was changing my dressings.
12 days post op....doing great. HAPPY EASTER TO...

My Doctor: Michael Diaz, MD
Dr diaz is amazing! He takes pride in his work and is very detailed. I would recommend him a thousand times over. He has incredible bed side manner! He saw me every day after surgery for an entire week, including coming to my home to check up on me. I was very nervous the day of surgery and he found a way to make me laugh and ease my nerves. His staff is wonderful. I had consultations with 2 other doctors and he was by far my number one choice!
