Only 5 Days Until my Surgery - Miami, FL

My motivation is my husband who has been there with me through thick & thin (literally) I have considered this procedure since 1995. I want to have a waistline again and be rid of the ugliness that I see in the mirror everyday, I want to finally be able to wear a bikini after 26 years! I'm feeling a little nervous but very anxious. So just counting the days...leaving for Miami on Tuesday (3) days!

I actually found Dr. Salama through Google search engine last year October 2011, I did substantial research on his work and his background, I called and bugged the BAJEEZIES out of poor Reuben & Nancy who were both extremely helpful & kind and that actually helped me in making my decision to go with Dr. Salama.

You look great!!! I'm having mine done 4/29/13. If you don't mind me asking what hotel (price) did you stay at???

Thank you....Dr. Salama's office gives you a list of hotels to choose from for your stay, however, I used a family and friends discount to stay at The Sheraton. I noticed a "Knights Inn" directly across the street from the surgery center, had I known of that location, I probably would've booked my stay there. Maybe you should check out that option as well. It's on Hallandale Beach Blvd. in Hallandale Beach, FL. Good luck hon!

Thank you so much. Dr. Salama is great & I'm so happy that I chose him. During my consult Dr. Salama showed me where my incision would be placed and of course that made me happy to know that it would be low enough for me to wear possibly a bikini next summer!!!

Hello ladies. I am 2 days post op and although I am swollen I 100% notice an improvement in my waistline and to the flatness of my stomach. I started to cry when Dr. Salama took off my garment to show me the results. I have not seen my stomach this flat since I was 18! I realize that I have months of healing to do and the results will only improve with time. I will be here in Miami until next Saturday 11/3, my next post op appt. with Dr. Salama is Tuesday and I can't wait to see more fabulous results! I'll keep you all posted. I'd like to say thank you and I Love You to my wonderful husband who has been here for me and with me since day 1, he is awesome! And thank all of you as well for your moral support!
