No Time to Stall I Made the Call -have my Date Going for It All...TT& MT -LP of Lat Thgs, Back/ Flank, Mid Thighs-Nashville, TN

I must confess I have been stalking this site also...

I must confess I have been stalking this site also and the Love that is given to each and everyone is WONDEFUL !!!! I want start by saying to all that have taken the journey and posted before and after pictures Thank you and you all look Beautiful. I wish my date was closer and it would be over with but I tell myself to calm down July 22 will be here sooner that you think. I have purchased supplies in which I clean a dresser drawer out and place them where the person who will caring for me has everything in one place. It took me a while to tell this person what and why of me needing help (he knows I'm very Independent person) and some guys don't understand. But since I have discussed and told him I'm beginning to wonder who my doctor is. I know this is a good thing please don't get me wrong but the question .... do you have this , did you do this, what's in your packet that the doctor sent you read me the last part again....Whew. Then I confided in my sister and here we go again question after question (have no family member living here ) I have the support so I'm going quit whining.
I'm having weird feeling one minute I'm excited, then little scared, then giggly and when I look at myself in the mirror I say "Dam" turning 55 really caught me off guard (when I get bold to post before picture you will see) lo...l I'm going to bring this to a close .... To all please continue to give the love and support that I have read...I'm would like to join the ranks 07/22/2014 is my Day.
55!!!! Wow, you look incredible and that dress makes it all worthwhile.........you look amazing!

I wish you the best also... this will be a well deserved break for me for I have been putting in a lot of work hours( want have all ducks in a row). Everyone is asking where I will be going on vacation and my reply has been a undisclosed location with no phone or internet service (lol). And yes I post after pictures.

Good for you! You will return to work a "new" woman having been rejuvenated during your vacation! Hey, vacations are good!

12 Days for Pre-Op Appt ( July 8 )

Looking at the calendar only 12 days until my Pre-Op Appt. Yeah !!!! I know it's crazy to be excited about paying (lol) but it only confirms that I have made this happen and it's going to happen.
I was talking to a male friend (my best friend) he is so glad that I'm doing something for myself for a change.
There is NO WAY that body is 55!! I don't believe it! I can't wait to see your outcome! It's going to look fabulous! I'm scheduled for December 17th, but I think of moving it up a week so I'll have more time to recover before returning to work. Can't wait to follow your journey!!

7 Days until Pre-Op

7 days until Pre-Op
Me and the Poochies will be rolling out early tomorrow we have things to do.
I have already purchased quite a bit of the things I will need (thanks to RS members) I sort of read through different post to compile my list. I am going to make it easy for the person who will be taking care of me so I clean out two of my dresser drawer and placed everything for my after surgery care in one and sleeping stuff in the other, That way everything will be close by when needed. COME ON JULY 22.....

Time is getting closer

We got a lot done yesterday..... washed and waxed my car, picked up a few more things that I'm going to need and some house cleaning (trying to keep busy and calm) but as the days get closer this feeling of over excitement will kick in and I go into over think mode.....
Well remind Poichies and her crew that they don't have to dig the divorce papers the judge already signed and they can take half (stomach). Even more.. I'm sure you won't complain. Lol. Countdown is definitely on.

No Time to Stall I got the Call .....

Got my reminder for Pre-Op Appt Call... Soon I will be on Flatside with like the rest of y'all.
Hey Ma'am, how was ur Pre-op? Mine is tomorrow just knowing that I'm will be making the final payment is making it all so real.....Flat side here we come! !!!
Reply
I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!! excited. Dr. Haws is the BOMB !!!!!. Been on a natural high since I left her office.... I went over everything with nurse filled out paper work got my scripts. I then was taken to the photo room took 17 different pictures went back to the patient room.. Few minutes later Dr. Haws came in with the big version of an IPAD she turn it on and pulled up my pictures that's when she started her magic. She explain to me what need to go lol how she was going to remove the excess skin for my tummy tuck (going to be right and tight) giving me my figure back . I told her (I must she was on point with my thinking) you are creating a monster..... I know already that I'm going to have to check myself for this change because what she has planned I will have be snatch down a few knots ( lol ). On serious side I'm hoping all goes well I've had highs and lows with this but too late now " I showed them the money today " (glad that over with ). The only concern I had was ejecting fat in the backside this came up in my consultation in which I wasn't to thrilled about (Blessed at birth ). But she explain that it would be a very small amount she is wanting to fill the (Swiss cheese aka cellulite ) lol to make it look smoother so I'm cool with that. So I'm down to getting the rest of my recovery stuff and doing the count down..... Good luck tomorrow : )

Have to be honest

I had a real bad melt down today but a wonderful person came to my rescue (she is already on the flat side). To all the RS member it is very important that the person giving you after care fully understand what's ahead. They may say the things you want to hear and at that time...... Say they understand but when reality set in (not saying all people) it's a different story. So make sure that person is up for the challenge and they understand this was a choice that you decide to do but you trust them enough to be there without judgment.

Pre-OP Today

Today I am drain less, stich less, but bruises mmmmmmmmmmmmm got to heal.
Hang in there you didn't divorce the poochies for nothing.
Reply
You are so right about that and thanks

Picture update

Picture update...... : )
Wow u look dramatically different. Now see this is the tummy tuck results I wanted.
Reply
Thank you nikki101887.... I chose to have the Standard Abdominoplsty which was reduction and removal of excess skin and fat from my abdomen (belly) and tightening of my front abdominal muscles. I figure if I was going to do this I might as well have that done also but you have a longer healing time. Before they rolled me back to get started she(PS) ask me if I was ready to do this and I told her get right and tight lol ...
Reply
I had the same thing but with the different results going on here, I guess it depends on your surgeon. Your surgeon did magnificent

Picture In order

Just want to update picture with the before and afterward.

Thank you. That she is and very passionate about her work. I had my follow up appointment with her today I told her now I can't stand in the mirror and say if I could chop this off and get rid of that my body would be okay. I did mention your journey I told her that you comment back to me that I was in good hands with Dr. Haws.

Had to do it right

Some of you may think I have too much time on my hand but I had to give the Poochies and the Rolls a proper going away. lol

Now for the Rolls

They too left on July 22, 2014
Jiji, you are funny, hsppy for you, l love the black dress, soon when all the swelling go down will fit, this is a long journey and you are half way there, it will take between 6 months to 1 year to see you end results, but at the end is not regrets at all. Happy healing
Reply
Thank you... In that picture the dress was not totally zipped (I could only zip so far) just the fact that I can wear it without the Poochies and the rolls showing........Love being on the Flatside : ) again thanks.

Nashville Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Haws and her staff are WONDERFUL !!! I've had a consultation and set the date, my Pre-Opt appointment is 07/08/2014 On my consultation day I was wondering how am I going to show these rolls to this Doctor but she made me feel at ease. She was very attentive, listen to what I want and in return gave me suggestion as to what she could do and still give me the result that I hope to achieve. My date 07/22/2014 I'm hoping to give a after review. *********************************************************************************** 08/22/2014 - I am officially 1 month post-op today -Update Let me start by saying pictures speaks a thousand words and if you have view my photos you will see what I mean. When I had my consultation and my pre-op appointment I did not have a wish picture, my wish was different and that was for Dr. Haws and I to create a new me and to wear some clothing without the (rolls). During my pre-op session and after the photo session she did her magic on the photos showing me "The New Me" and she was so on point with my every thought as to what I wanted. She is a true person of her words before I was rolled into the surgery room I told her to "Make it Right and Tight" and that she did. The magic she put on my pre-op picture and my body be the canvas was a work of art. What more can I say ?...... Dr. Haws and her staff is the Bomb !!!!!
