I always noticed the back of arms were bulky and...
I felt the jarring of the cannula moving back and forth. Anyway,i am 4 days post of my surgery and i
felt the worst on thursday. I had been throwing up all day and night a total of 7 times. I NOTICED EVERY Ttime I take the 2 antibiotics a day which are 500MG of Cephalaxin. I would get nauseous and sometimes diarrhea but those are the side effects of this medication. I didn't need any pain meds and i was able to shower 2 days after and wash my hair with no problems. I am sore,itchy and swollen but that is to be expected. I'm not too sure about the itchy part but i have my post-op june 25th,so i'll discuss it with my doctor. I will say that i am anxious and i want instant gratification,however i was informed by my doctor,that i will see results in 3-6 mos,not overnight! Damn! lol. I am NOT patient and i am already tired of the soreness,swelling,itching and stinging in my right arm. I will ask doctor about stinging as well and why it only happens in my right arm. I don't have much bruising and i am able to raise my arms and text,type sleep on my left arm. I feel the procedure is fast and my recovery seems to be just as speedy.
I will post pics tomorrow as it is early am right now.
5 days after smart lipo
i will post b4 pics when i can find the right ones,[lease bare with me.
5 days after smart-lipo
I am still impatient and my arms look saggier but i do understand it's been 5 days and they are still pretty SWOLLEN,SORE and tender. I am able to resume my normal routine however,i have NOT driven due to my car being stick. I do not want to jeopardize the results of my arms. I am very fortunate i have not had any lumps,pain or any other complications. I read so many horror stories and it's scary and sad to hear about others ps gone so wrong. I do hope those who have had medical issues or other problems take matters into others hands and get a lawyer.

Elbow incisions and under arm
I can notice a bigger scar that is more prominent under the arm area. elbows healed fast and not very prominent.
Got a JOg in tonight after 18 days.
It was stop and go all the way. Anyway,i will truck along the path Solo tomorrow.
My arms burn like hell,like a stinging sensation,i can't explain it. I get that i am healing but,uncomfortable feeling. Bad enough i forgot how to use my darn legs,thank god for muscle memory. I am disciplined so i'll try again Monday night. It was hella hot out too. Like 79
i finished by 8:10 p.m. and it was still like 75.
Well i put arnica on them and it soothed them.
Happy Healing all of you and Good night.
Sweet Dreams and pleasant thoughts to you getting surgery soon.
3 weeks and 3 days!
I am posting pics and i did notice my arms are getting tighter and leaner. Lovin' them.
I still feel a little numbness in right arm by elbow but it is subsiding. I get this tingling stinging sensation when i put my hands over head but that too is diminishing with time. All in all,i'm doing well.
Happy Healing to all of you who had procedures done the 10th and after.
It's been 4 weeks and it feels like 4 months! I am still swollen and healing right along.
I feel like time is moving like a slug and i want it to be like turbo the movie. I am Bored of waiting!!! My friends see the results and i do too but not a 6 month end result,that's what i'm waiting for.
For swelling on face,puffy eyes,headaches and redness
NOW I LOOK LIKE AN iDIOT!
NOT Fading Fast
He worked on my right arms more,how is it possible! I have no scars. The left is so noticeable.
UGH! ;( Left is not fading fast enough. Oh well. It is what it is. I just have to wait it out.
I will see my doctor this afternoon and see how he thinks i am healing.
Here are some pics to see the difference. Overall i am HAPPY and ready for my next procedure.LOL!

Dominican Republic/La Republica Dominicana
I know you can't drink alcohol but there is a drink called MAMAJUANA and it is so good,it is soaked in cinnamon sticks and some type of concoction that is Tasty!!! If you get a chance they have it bottled at the airport,so you can taste a bit of the DR and hopefully it leaves you with a good taste in your mouth and a BEAUTIFUL Bunda!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that means BUTT in Brazilian Portuguese.
Me encanta La Rpublica Dominicana Y Mexico.
Todas mis latinas q viajan alli para encontrar su cuerpo de nuevo les quiero felicitar.
Cuidense MUCHO y q Dios Les Bendiga

I Hate going through customs,it is a pain in the butt!! I wanted to post some pics soyou can see my arms. The pics aren't great because my phone broke and the camera i took had no battery,i thought i charged it ,NOT!!! The hits kept coming. I have pics in phone but have to get a new phone and then i will post them. It's all good mother nature did NOT follow me to Cancun,thank God,i think the HEAT scared her away!! I was able to get in the pool and the ocean.

This new heart system i'm seeing is new?????????????????????? HUH????????????
Prayers to the ladies getting bbl's tomorrow and other ps done. ;)
Cheers to all the Lovely RS Women!
I NEVER want to offend anyone or insult anyone. I enjoy chatting it up with most people i have met on RS and i want to Thank Mzphatbooty and Redgoddess for ALWAYS keeping it REAL with me. I try to be supportive and informative but will stay in my lane and know my place. I understand most of you are grown and make your our own decisions,make our own $$$$$$$$$$$ and do what you want,so that being said,i will not interfere with the ps you choose or not. It's all up to you and i will just be positive and say prayers. Cheers to everyone :)
Happy Healing Ladies!!!!

Thank you all and have a great weekend!
Happy Hump Wednesday!
I woke up late&MISSED my post-op Tuesday so i'll be seeing Dr M on Aug 28th. I have been so lazy these past months and fall is around the corner,yuk!! The only good thing about that is kids will be back in school by the 25th and my movie theatre's will be empty,YES!!!!! I have been OBSESSING about my abs lately and can't wait to get rid of them and get my 4 pack back! I pray for those getting surgery Thursday and wish everyone who is healing a HAPPY recovery and a BEAUTIFUL end result!!
Hope all my Bay Area sisters are ok,maybe you slept through it or you felt it. However
i hope everyone is safe!! It was scary but kinda fun,i was getting ready to go to bed and and it felt like i was one of the beds you put a quarter in and it freakin' shakes,lol. I was a youngin' then.
Hope all is well!! Goodnight and Good morning!
I went in for my post-op on my arms. Everything is healing properly and i am very pleased.
I did have my smart-lipo consult for abs and my surgeon had me put on a gown and i changed and i felt so embarrassed,he has NEVER seen my body,just my arms and face. His coordinator Melinda was in the room with him and then another trainee named Nicole. I was even more embarrassed and it felt demeaning. I was on display for all 3,so i was Worried they were going to criticize me harshly. I know i have flaws and was just shy. Dr M said "Drop the gown" UH YIKES!!! So, i did and kept saying i know i am fat! He asked "WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO WITH THESE FLAT ABS"?!!!!!!
What! I SMILED in disbelief and said hold on,i leaned over & said this tire is due to 16 months after my car accident. They are far from flat! He stated due to my dark Hispanic skin&i corrected him& said Latina& so he said ok Is that what they are saying now? LOL. He thought i would not like the scars and knows i am picky,we have known each other for 3-4 years ,so yes,i am very picky. He continued and said you are a perfectionist and i am. Damn!! He knows me so well!!! I said yes,but far from perfect! I need a little maintenance.
He recommended i am a good candidate for cool sculpting. HMMMMMMMM.
He did say i probably may not like it but try it and if if i still want smart-lipo he'll do it and discount what i spent for cool sculpting. COOL :) He quoted $1500&it takes 1 hour. He also had this procedure done by a colleague &liked it,he is going to do it again when he can find 1 hour of time. This guy literally never sleeps! I have been checking out cool sculpting reviews and researching the technique.
So,for now No smart-lipo on abs,but i will try the cool sculpting. I KNOW WHENI DID SMART-LIPO many said not so smart &now i'm sure i'll hear not so cool :0). It is what it is.
I think Roman&Transformeplease called my ps&told him not to do smart-lipo on my abs!!!!!! HAHAHA! JK :)
Thanks for everyone's support,encouragement and prayers for me&Pablo!!!!!!! More prayers are powerful*he need al the prayers he can get!
My thoughts are also with Pattie68 and other ladies that have not had such a fortunate results either from smart-lipo,lipo,mini face lifts,bbl's,tt's,breast lifts,armlifts and cool sculpting. Yes,i get around.
Prayers and Positive thoughts to all the women/men i have chatted with.
Thanks again to everyone for cheering me up on a daily in my time of need. JR,AMG408,TRANSFORMMEPLEASE,ROMAN.NEWSHAPE(M),hecallsmebabydol,Pattie68,rayrai,etc
This forum has been good to me :)
I will start my cool sculpting journey soon.
I forgot to share my before pics!!!
Not a drastic change but subtle and again,no jiggle or wiggle under my arms is always good!!
I just needed some maintenance. I see it as an oil change. :0 ) Gotta laugh at the Dumb S..T!
Simba sends Licks&Kisses
HELL OF A FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Even with all that has happened today,i still feel good and got my hair done and look FAB!!
You can H8TE ME NOW BUT I WON'T STOP NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As i always been told and have told This too shall pass!!!!!!!!!!! I will NOT be held back,lied to or Humiliated for NO GOOD REASON.
With that being said,i am here to make a difference and i have been told i am helpful and give good tips&advice but even with that being said everyone here is supposed to be an adult and mature who will make their own decisions regardless. So if my advice is not asked for NO WORRIES it won't be given But if you do i have the right and freedom of speech to give my opinion. I am sharing my 'TRUE SELF ON "REAL SELF".
Mexico Vs Chile Futbol Partido!
The New 49er Stadium,it opened in Aug. This was my first time and maybe my last!!! But my friend said we have to see at least 1 49er game! Eh!
I was NOT IMPRESSED!!! NOT FOR $1.3 BILLION.GOTTA LOVE JERRY'S WORLD IN DALLAS!!!!!
NOW THAT'S WORTH $1.3 BILLION AND IT'S A DOME AND HOLDS 110,000 FANS. I LOVED IT!!
I MISS the historical Candle Stick!
I enjoyed myself to the fullest :) It was Definitely all about MEXICO!!!! JUAJ!!!! I am a fan :)
But the game stayed at 0/0 HAHAHAHAHA!
I have nothing but great things to say about Dr Morganroth. I have known him for more than 3 years and he has always been very nice to me,he is honest,professional and personable. If i have questions on the latest lipo,fillers or lasers and peels,he is very knowledgeable and quick to answers any of my questions. Dr M is my go to Dermatological surgeon for everything. I trust him with my life,i know i am in good hands when he treats me for anything. He is very confidant at everything he does and he's a perfectionist. He has a good eye and a precise hand,which makes him a true artist in my opinion. I have read reviews where patients were told to get a full face lift and pay 20k but when they met with Dr M they learned they did not need a full face lift and that his approach is less invasive,more natural and healing time is minimal. Dr M will not tell you that you need something you don't! I never felt like he was pushing to sell skin care products for my melasma or needed my$$$$. Quite the contrary. He has always been more than fair with me and has delivered Great results from mole removal,skintags,fillers to smart-lipo on my arms. He is also the BEST in the Bay Area for Moh's. If you don't know what this is,it's skin cancer. This is where his precise surgical technique comes into play,Dr M does this 247, i would say more than 23,000 surgeries. He specializes in Moh's surgery,laser surgery,reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.I couldn't ask for any other Surgeon to work on my face or body. He definitely knows his profession and is an expert in skin surgery. His work speaks volume and his confidence is impeccable. I thought about consulting other surgeons/ps's at one time But i realized there was no need. I can truly say,i never had to go to anyone else and i wouldn't RISK it ever! He's the right surgeon for me. Dr M holds seminars on procedures he conducts&the latest new lasers such as:Smarlipo triplex,fillers,restylane,botox and cellulaze etc. These seminars are very educational and informative and can help people with their decision if they are considering any type of ps. I like this idea because not many surgeons do this if any and there is no pressure,it is like a social event where there are drinks and other patients you can consult. I could go on and on but My surgeon doesn't need me to promote him on RS. His results speak for themselves. I NEVER could write a review because i do not face book,twitter or instagram and i still don't. But finally here it is after 3 years. If i left anything out sorry Dr M :) lol i think i covered it all.
