I've beens stalking and lurking for waaaaayyyyy too long and have finally decided to start my own journey.
II've put in my time with the mommy body and now I'm extremely excited and looking forward to the new body. I'm only having lipo to my abs/flanks/backroll and BA and I honestly can't wait......
I've been considering it for a while finally narrowed my doctors down to a select few. One of them was Dr. Michael Shotwell here in Atlanta at American Lipo Centers. They had giving me a pretty good price range and I was fairly happy. But as I continued to do my research I became more and more nervous and second guessing my decision. I don't like that feeling but I went ahead and placed my deposit down and was scheduled to have lipo only with them. Then I posed the question of having lipo in one place and BA in another to our lovely community of doctors on here and all of them pretty much said the same thing and it was all great advice..... 1) Make sure your surgeon is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and 2) Why not have both procedures at the same time by the same PS. I had thought the same thing but I tried to put it out of my mind because I had put a deposit down. Well needless to say I'm very happy that I followed my instincts and pursued looking further into my PS while continuously searching for another. I found out that the original PS was not a PS at all but a General surgeon. Now don't get me wrong he's is a board certified surgeon but not a PS. This may not bother most but it bothered me. The question I kept asking myself was whether he would be more concerned with just removing the fat from my chosen areas or would be into sculpting the body as well...... Well I got my answer when I finally got the chance to meet him today. He was very shy and sweet, but as I asked him a few questions and he explained the procedure and what he would do, it became very clear to me that he would only be concerned with removing the fat. Therefore, I cancelled my procedure with ALC (atlanta) and scheduled all of my procedures with Dr. Jacob Freiman in Miami. I only made that decision this morning and already I'm relieved about my decision. I've been going back and forth with Yadira for quite some time and she was very accommodating when I called and I asked if Dr. Freiman could do my lipo and BA. I am now scheduled for my mini-makeover March 10th. Everything has been booked and now I am just waiting my time out.
A little advice if you don't feel right about it, don't go through with it.
Well, this was long enough I guess. I'm extremely excited to finally be on the latter part of this journey and very happy to be on it with so many other women, so I know I wasn't just me... lol
I look forward to sharing with you all and I will post pics after the procedure of before and after.
