I am 32, 5'2 5 previous pregnancies ages 3 yrs to 13 years with 3 Irish triplets!! ( 11 months apart )
so I much need a Full Tummy Tuck with Muscle repair & Lipo. Glad to find out Johnathan Fiscer is having a special on exactly what I need & I am booked for May 20th surgery with him YAY !!

LIPS :: So I am having a fat transfer to my lips as well. I am so unsure about how many CCs I should get... I want my lips to be super pouty. I read somewhere that not all of the fat survives ... so any help on this is very much appreciated !!

Decision change for the LIPS

Okay so Dr, Johnathan is excellent my decision change from fat transfer to a 5 mm PermaLip implant on the top and fat transfer to the bottom lip would be a 250$ extra BUT he is sweet and leaving my quote as is $7500 bc it is paid already :) Very Pleased and excited!!!!
Jessica Garcia is excellent I can call her whenever and she answers every question I have right then & there AMAZING!!

BEST thing about this VIP package trip is that its ALL INCLUSIVE (minus my airfare)!! meds, garments , transportation, lab work , 10 day stay AND I can have someone come with me at NO EXTRA charge... I think thats awesome !!

forgot to say ...

I am 32 5 foot 2 and 147 pounds

wish pics lol...

All I wish for is a healthy recovery & I already know I heal nice but , I do wish for minimal scarring.
I do LOVE Lindsay Lohans sexy Lips
and I prefer a different waist to hip ratio of about 3-4 inches please ! yea right I hope so though.. I'm assuming its possible with Lipo in flanks & belly.
Im very concerned with the scarring .
Also Iwent for a consult with Dr. Wallach in Manhattan (very nice man & staff btw) I did meet another surgeon n the elevator and decided to pop into his office after... I was talking with the nurses in his office and they said all drs have a different Tecnique to stretch the skin down, some make a cut from hip bone to hip bone and others dont... she says some take the edges and bring them in toward the center and others straight down. She said you get better more slimming results when you bring the skin in towards the center. Sooo, I am hoping Dr. Fisher does that ;0)!!!!

I decided to play with a picture lol

Well I got a call from yisel

stating that I need labs, smh, they told me my priors would be okay...so i'm going this morning...unreal.

Annnnd... Thank god , I got my period two days ago so il should be gone by surgery date. I am taking Iron.

Tummy Tuck Scar Tattoo Cover-ups

Here is a compilation of some cute Idea's I have found for covering up your TT scar :0) enjoy
I recommend waiting until your scar is aqt its flattest and lightest before tattooing you will get better results.

that gel has made my scars silver & flat in less than 4 months Post Op of my BA

Getting so close to my date eeeekkk!!! Silvadine burn creme ? ? ?

I am so excited...going to get some bloodwork done tomorrow morning by my dr just to be sure... my blood work blood pressure and all that is always just perfect. I thank god my period cycle is almost over - I took Iron supplements immediately - dont want it(low iron) to be the cause of a delay. So 10 am Dr Karp (amazing PC here on long island. Been my dr for years and my Moms & Aunts Dr before he was mine) Thankful he always takes me with short notice :x haha !!

I bought a few dresses to lay around in
new socks
OMG how cool ....Dots (jrs clothing store) is going out of business so we dropped in there... I was going to the shopping center for the dollar tree to look for SUCTION CUPS for the drains ... my mother investigating all the empty racks and boxes ( I didn't notice everything had price tags ) I totally am stoked to have found like 8-10 suction cups with hooks which I got FREE !!!!!! awesomeness .... So if anyone is down there without I may have some extra ... CoolBeans ..
Got some more a&d & Neosporin too for the little things...

Dr amazing prescribed me some Silver Cream too its called SSD I thought it was silverdine could swear my mom calls it that but its a prescription of silver sulfadiazine 1% - This stuff is generally for burns ... anyone who ever rode bitch on the back of a bike often has gotten a tail pipe burn MOST of which you can still see... NOT MINE and its because of this silver stuff LOL... so It works on scars as well :0) I thought ...why not.... I was attacked by a dog when I was a 3 year old also , plastic surgery on my face - could you imagine - my face was ripped open BUT my scar is only like 2cm you can only see it bc haha "I stopped caring for it as a pre teen " as mom would say.... But this silver stuff is what was used and it works wonders especially since its covered by insurance !!!
OOOHH just in .... lol... dont use it for some scars IT INCREASES HEALING TIME
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_sulfadiazine
and it is silvadine ;0) memory isn't so fried after all ... just perfect ! Thats a brand name .
I read somewhere that scar prevention makes wounds take much LONGER to heal... so im guessing this stuff is better used on minor cuts and also after the majority of the healing happens with surgical incision sights...

board certified ? Just checking

I mean really I am 5'2 and 147 (went down 3lbs tg) most of which is in my ass and thighs thank god but it makes me go from a 3 to a 7 bc i cant get a 5 up and over the ass haha or even up past the upper thigh... so no.. I talked myself outta that one.

Dr. Siddharth Bass, MD Vanity Miami Making me change my dr.

Dr Fisher will not do my surgery he is now saying that because I am on methadone for Pain Managment ( and you must take it everyday or withdraw -but honest i dont think id get the withdrawels bc im on a very lowww dose NOT for drugs for pain ) So they gave me a mini heart attack and said He wont do my surgery before they offered a discount and a new dr sheesh I heard bad things and it was like I have been just waiting for my day to come.
I would cry if my money was wasted. I did cry.

I flew in to Miami and met a woman who was having her surgery on May 19th also and we are sharing a room a nurse and yet the nurse act like she doesn't know about the 500$ discount and I still haven't been discounted my 1000 for the lies and the changes yet either.

lips past few days

No patients every time I do this update w pics I end up b reloading entire page n losing it all!!!!1-3 pics at a time updatesupdates
So it can take around 4 wks for fat in lip to settle mom said

tummy

Looking ugly but I know you all share your pics :(

Good Morning .. I feel like I felt better yesterday

Or at least the same as I felt yesterday. Maybe this has alot to do with my neck being extremely cocked to the side when I sleep in that comfy recliner OR maybe because I was up all night coughing fml !!! I got a cough suppressant bc every time I cough I feel like im causing a hernia ...well here are some more pics in separate update bc laptop battery is low ..may have to post in a bit. when i make it from the kitchen to my room what seems like a mile in this mansion!!

Tummy Tuck W Lipo & Fat Transfer to Lips with Dr. Siddarth Bass Miami Florida Previously Chosen Dr Fisher

pictures 05-22-2014 were taken at Post Operative check up at Miami office with a nurse assistant. THEN brought to Hialeah where Dr Bass office is. He examined me and told me its okay to take dressings off so the areas dry up. and its okay to sleep without binder now or I can take it on and off. no shower instructions yet and I have asked oni like 15 times about showering, is peroxide cleaning ok? Can I use neosporin on my wounds? she forgets very easily.

So I saw the Dr. Yesterday

Neosporin is fine all over and he also instructed me to stuff my belly button w gauze so it doesn't close up and to ensure proper healing.
I had my drains removed yesterday and every other staple removed as well. his assistant was learning and so he showed her what to do removing a few every other himself then instructing her to do the same every other staple. I will go back before my flight ( which I wish was Wednesday instead of Thursday) I hate to be rushing the day of my flight. I don't land until 9:30 pm well anyways.. I still havent had one massage. They came at me right after surgery asking about massages and I said oh hell no lol... Of course I didnt want to be touched, come to find out.... that was not for a massage but a Dr appt, and I had to wait anyways for the drains to be out before wearing a compression garment and having massages. Which my first massage will be at the recovery home today at 3pm... going to catch some rest before then alarms set for 2pm tootles
Oh and finally some swelling down on my lips !!! they have been down this was for two three days now. im hoping this is the final result.

just had my massage feeling great :0)

my tummy is soft like a babys butt ... all happy accept I asked dr bass to lipo my love handles away and give me a waist and he did not I feel like I looked better before I had this procedure. what do you all think? ? and check out my asymmetric sides??? wtf??

BELLY BUTTON BLOODY MESS

stil having belly button issues im scaredddd

very nervous of getting an infection. went to my pain management today showed my doc he says GO SEE YOUR PRIMARY DR !! so i guess i have to do this... although dr bass finally called me and gave me his cell number to contact him direct since his staff cant seem to get him a message!
I'm actually becoming more and more pleased with my results I have silicone scar sheets on the incision working super ! I only will spend money on silicone products for scar therapy bc that's all that works. yes its topical but I rub bio oil in for 10 minutes then use silicone and sleep with sheets !!

why am I so hardd on the bottom half of me??

if you look at the above pics you can see that my incision is (tg) low and in my crease where the belly was hanging... which i dont like bc it kind of still look is like its there. also im hard as a rock down there is this normal? if not what do I do? it kind of looks as though im 3 moths pregnant ... im short and have a short torso i guess... but the bott9om half seems extra hard. i didnt do enough reasearch before i went through with this heeelllpyyy :D

belly button not healed (tired of this) PICS update
