Hello Ladies! Im so happy to have found what seems...

Hello Ladies! Im so happy to have found what seems to be the perfect forums for the believers of happy endings. I myself am a 32 year old mother of 6 great kids. My husband and i have what you call a combined family. I had 2 kids from a prior relationship and so did he....... then we had 2 of our own....an yes WE ALL LIVE TOGETHER..LOL, so thats 3 Boys 3 Girls and a overwhelmed mom making us the official BRADY BUNCH!!! lol Ive always considered myself to be a BEAUTIFUL , THICK, CURVY WOMAN..... BUT while busy raising all these kids, tending to my husbands and loosing my "SEXY"...i feel its more than time to welcome MY SEXIER BACK!!! I feel like I've put myself to the back burner ( with good reason cause all my kids are worth it) But now its time to do something nice for myself.

I committed to loosing 30-40 lbs and give the rest of my years all I've got. Im anxious and excited to read and share this journey with all you ladies. Realself.com Has allowed me to see I'm not alone and i commend all of the REAL WOMEN on this forum for having the courage to share the personal stories,feelings and pictures to allow women like myself to see the truth behind the clothes. We now have the opportunity to explore the possibilities of regaining whats been gone for way to long .... COMFORTABLE CONFIDENCE! Don't get me wrong, Ive always been confident , but after having my last baby, MY NOW SAGGY TWINS AND FLAP JACK FROM HELL WITH A SIDE OF STRECH MARKS HAS TAKING ITS TOLL ON ME...LOL. I want to feel as good in and out of my clothes as i once did. So now I'm ready to trade in my Saggy Twins for HAPPY GIRLS and my FLAP JAck For a scar and somewhat Six pack...lol. Im ready to turn my Mans head and feel good while he's looking. SO to all us ladies ...... May our beauty be restored and booty NEVER Be Ignored!.... Best wishes to all of us. And hope to update everyone soon!

Hey Hun!!! How are you???? haven't heard from you in a minute. Everything went Well! Dr. lalla and his staff seem fantastic. The are so done to earth aswell as professional. I spoke about our networking through real self and they were so OPEN...lol. When i told them about you and your friend they new exactly who i was talking about! well, i haven't set a day up yet because they said he's booked all through August.... But i wasn't planning on having any work done till the fall anyway. Im look to start making payments towards my procedure in about two weeks to try and locking a date soon. Im going to have a BA,TT,BBL..... yes girl the works. Im still at a SPANKING 16.000 But for way more contouring than Dr. bond was going to do.she was only doing a tt and ba.

Thank you! so far ive lost 60 lbs and am trying to loose another 25-30. i was going to go to yliy at first but my family over in DR are against me going to her because of some recent and past situations and issues with the facility and prior clients. I really just want to make it through surgery safely and happy with the results of course...LOL...;-) . My first concerns are my kids, i need to make it back home safely for the sake of them. To top things off i will be getting married in August next year and i want to be able to enjoy my wedding comfortably and most importantly make there...lol .... Can you tell im freaking out???? lol , anyway i hope we both get the results we're looking for and that god works through our dr.'s hands!. keep me up dated hun.

It's been a long time...I shouldn't have left ya!.. lol old school throw backs! im coming back for my lre mommy body... no ... e

So ive lost 60 lbs since my last posting and am looking on loosing at least 25lbs more ! Since I dont really base my weight loss on numbers and more on inches and clothing size I believe that with a few more lbs lost I will be were I want before surgery. Im leaning towards having surgery in Dominican Republic now instead of in the states simply because of their incision techniques and liposculpturing. Plus I can get a little more for the money! I just want to be a Super C~U~R~V~A~C~E~O~U~S BRICK HOUSE!!!! LOL..... and look gorgeous in my WEDDING dress for next summer of course! ;-). ANYWAY, here's a few updated new pics . Hopefully I can reach my goal before the big day. Looking foward to my fiance saying im married to Mrs.C~U~R~V~A~C~E~O~U~S!!! ;-)

All the true sides of me.....

Girl U better, I love u pics.

I need to make up my mind . Im currently scheduled with Dr. Robles for 4/7/2014 but have had another Dr. in dr catch my interest.

I know mistakes happen but that just scared the crap out of me. Theres just so many horrible things happening….. :-( i just want to be alive and well after the surgery so i can maker home to my kids and still be SEXY…lol… i know, that didn't sound right but you laddies get my drift… riight????…lol

lord have mercy.... im so scared...:-(

I just read an seen the news casting of another 29 year from new york who lost her life in Dominican Republic chasing her dream body. Very pretty girl to, left a 5 year old daughter behind. My heart is breaking. I need some encouragement. . :-( my trip will soon be here and im a ball of nerves without hearing all of these devastating updates. I have 6 kids that I would hate to leave behind because of vanity...:-( . My wedding is in August and I REALLY want this but im soooooo scared now... I feel like crying. I wish I coukd tell the future and know everything will be ok. I need help, im about to break down. :-(
Well I must admit.... I use to feel that wsy once upon a time but that was usually when I had recently had anybofmy babies. I hated shopping those first 12 months.... but I noticed that 2 years after having my kids my stomach and shape would start coming back and thus came out my alterego the SENSUAL SHOPZILLA!!!!!! I can admit, I have a problem. ... I LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOOOVE-AAAAH Shopping. ..lol :-)

Getting Ready!!!

So ladies my sx date is quickly approaching and I am anxious, excited and looking forward to joining the flat side very soon. Im no longer nervous and hope I continue to feel this calm. Im praying im able to get all I want done since my levels were good before I even started taking 325 mg of iron (Hemo was 13.6) hopefully ive increased it a bit more in order to have all I want as well as prevent needing any transfusion. Anyway, the most important thing is my health and life. Whatever I can have done safely is what it'll be. :-)

Packed and almost ready to go!

Good morning ladies! So I guess I must be going through some nesting moment. I fi d myself trying to get everything done in order to feel better throughout my stay in Dominican Republic. This will be the First time I leave my 3 yr old in over night care with someone else other than me or his dad. ( if you read my profile you'll understand my attachment to the 3 year old). My other kids are older so I know they'll be able to help their Abuela:( my mom) & Nana: ( his mom) out with the two younger ones. For those of you who haven't read my profile, I have six kids rankings from 17- 3years of age. 3 boys 3 girls. Boys 17, 16, 3 & Girls 15, 12, 7. My hands are constantly full of Teen, preteen, kid and toddler activities. ..lol. I deal with all stages of growing up in my house all at one time so you can imagine the ambiance at my place but I wouldn't switch it for the world. As excited as I am.... im also feeling a bit guilty for chosing to go through with this and leaving my kids behind with all the risks I KNOW this sx can have. God knows I want nothing more then to make it back home to my kids safely. I pray that ive made the right decision for myself and that all will go well. Please lady keep me in your constant prayers as I embark on tjis journey as I do for you guys. Since this is a step ive decided to take im going in as strong and POSITIVE minded as can. I can't allow individaul negative situations ruin my chain if positive toughts and energy. With that said ladies.... here we go, only 6 more days till I fly out and 7 till im in sx!!!! God bless us all and may we all go in GOOD and come out GREAT!
omg i bet you do have your hands ful constantly! wow! aww the little ones are the hardest to leave behind and I hate the guilt feeling too!!! I will be praying for you all goes perfect!!! how many days are you going to be out there? :) Omg last night i was looking at Dr. Robles results wow!!! she is amazing!!! ur gonna look soo good!!!!!!! yay for you!!!!
Reply
Hey honey! I'll be staying fir 11 days. I dint know how im going to do it especially away from my little ones ... :-( but im going to try my best to talk to them every day since I will have a prepaid cell phone provided by my recovery house for the duration of my days there. I know I'll want to speak to them every day. :-) I will be traveling with my fiancé so im glad he'll be there with me to help me through tjis process. Im excited and nervous at the same time.

Good morning dolls! Hope everyone is doing well! Im super excited to know I will soon be on my way to DR for my transformation!!!!! I cant wait to be on the "FLAPLESS" SIDE. lol I say it this way because my stomach might not be "completely flat " right now but its considerably flat for me being a big girl. Im just happy to be getting the Flap mommy pouch removed. The only down side to this for me is that I KNOW I will stay with tons of stretch marks since mine stretch super high above my belly button. :-( .... but.... :-)... im use to them so they dont really bother me anymore since ive never had a complaint about them if you get my drift...;-) Stretch marks or not, I love me and thats all that counts! Ttyl ladies .....muah!

( in my Tony Montana voice)...SAY ELLO TU MY LIDELL FRENS!

Here are some close ups of my leeches! Lol. ... oh well, it is what it is. Im im sure my outcome will be interesting. BUT IM GOING TO STILL BE HOT.... just with some leftover badges of honor. ..lol

The day is here and I cant Belive im doing this!!!! :-)

Good morning ladies! so im here at CECIP waiting for my surgery. im not sure at what time I will go in but its definitely today. believe ut ir not, I thought I wouldnt be able to sleep last night but my babe slept in the bed with me and I was very happy and comfy. I habe been very calm but anxious at the same time. Once I got here I had all my test done and everything looks good ... HEMO IS AT 14 BABY!!!!! and that with my period in since friday! So ive met Dr. Robles and she seems very sweet humble and honest. I originally came here for a BA , TT & Side LIPO.... BUT as I figured she did try to convince me to have a lift..... im just not mentally ready for that scar. So she will do TT, BACK lipo, side lipo and bbl" fat transfer" . She marked my breast up last night just incase I change my mind about the breast. ..... but im convinced that I need time to deal with the scaring if shes willing to put them in with lifting I'll do it but if not.... its a no go for me. For now im scheduled for everything minus my breast for now. Lets see what happens. God willing in a few hours I will be ready for my procedure. I'll try to keep you guys updated. Keep me in prayers ladies! Chao for now muuuahhhh! ;-)
Much love sweetheart!!!!!

well Ladies, iiiiiiimmmmmmm baaaaaaaaaak! I made it to the FLAT SIDE!!!!!!

Ok heres my skinny..... I got to Santo domingo at 1:30pm. Met a really sweet girl that was going to be a Robles patient herself. My hubby and I chit chatted it of with her and tried to make her a bit more comfortable since she was also nervous as well as I was. She's such a cutie! Anyway, Willson the driver wS there to pick us up but had to wait for ine more girl. .. that by the way never showed up. ....hey shit happens.but along with my story, we finally left the airport which I might add filled with Native Dr women who had there bodies done which now as a realself freak I can spot a mile away....lol so we get in the van and took like a 25 min ride to the clinic. Wilson seemed pretty nice an shy and so I tried to break the ice with hi. By spesking in spanish and then translating for my hubby and girl we met. We get to the clinic and were at ahhhhh since it really is beautiful. We pretty much were checked in and lead to our rooms. Everyone do far has been VERY hospitable and kind. A few hous later after filling out paperwork we were sent to have testiing done. Cardiologist came to our room to finish the up yrsting with his EKG that's ancient but does the job! ... a few more hours passed and I met the one and only Dr. Robles herself... wonderful woman from my point of view. And laura has ways been cery attentive to my needs and questions do I can honestly that my experience with laura has been a good one. Next around 9:30 am I was given the BLUE pill and got nervous has heck but I still remaind positive from door. Im judt so honey came along with me h3s been so helpful all throught this journey of mine. After taking the bule pill which did nothing for me about 25 minutes later aman came for me.... and he wisked me away. Girls all I remember was stiing up talking to the anesthesiologist while she paced an iv....and boom, dont remember a thing else nut waking up call my hubby and telling him how much I lovefed him.... it was so cute he just had to record itlol... I was literally dunk in love@!! Well here are some photos.will update more soon! Wauuuh! Oh and by the way I pian so far is tolerable. Had a Tt, back, side & waist lipo. ! And BBL " FAT TRANSFER." TO MY BUTT dont know what it looks like yet but the minute I get to get up ill snap dhot and post. Lnnnnnp

11th day PO

Im back home and thank god doing well. Im am a bit swollen but nothing that i didnt expect... sure swell hell will rear its ugly face as its usually part of the process. Anyway Here's a little peek at my incision after caring for it. GOD WILLING I'll continue to do well...looking good so far. Im a little swollen but I can still see some ab action peeking through...;-) guess those 100 sit ups a day worked. Can't wait to be able to work out again one day. For now im just focusing on healing. Ok ladies, will update soon after I see change in phases. Happy healing everyone!
Looking great only after 11 days!!

14 Days PO

So today makes 15 days... wow, time really does fly, doesn't feel as if so much time has gone by. Ive posted my 14 day po or 2 week ( whatever you want to call it) pic. Not much different than they prior ones... still a little swollen but im sure with time things will get better. I cant wait to be healed and start working out again, im dying to do some squats to work on my gluteus maximus;-). Hoping and praying all goes well for me and all the up coming ladies! Ttyl!

side pic .... need to get my squats on..... later though...lol, now im must just concentrate on healing.

Little swelling..... oh, P.S..... I HATE FAJAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!!!! But got to where them...lol. definitely have a love hate relationship with them. Need to find a softer one cause these are killing my sides.

My faja I LOVE and HATE!

Here I am looking like a stuffed loin...lol . I don't know about they other post op ladies but its a MUST that I wear an under shirt and padding under my faja especially by my ribs to avoid faja burns. My sides are so sore from lipo but I find the apply thick pads prevents me from getting burns though it still hurts to wear them. Everything and anything I wear that applies the slightest pressure indents my skin. ..im guessing its from the swelling from lipo.... I so cant wait to be pass this stage and feel a bit more normal in my skin and clothes.
I feel your pain.. Lipo is the living hell. My PS had me buy a YOGA Matt ( better than lipo foam) and my daughter wrapped me like a pig in a blanket cut it to fit as a body suit. I wore it smooth side down massage my skin with pure she's butter and although at first it was hard to fit into the faja with it it helped to keep my skin smooth, burn free and gave me that xtra cushion plus pressure. The faja is that man you love but gets on your nerves sometimes.. Lol..

Hi ladies! forgot to mention ...

So after reading my initial post op update I saw I mentioned "fat transfer" or bbl..... well, I assumed that because the dr. And I had discussed the possibility of fat transfer since I was no longer getting my boob. She mentioned that the dents that I wanted filled out were cellulite dents and in most cases the would not fill in but she'd try. Well after speaking with her on my last post op visit before I left I mentioned to her that my butt DIDN'T hurt like ive heard other girls describe and she mentioned to me that its because she did not do the fat transfer because I told her if my butt was going to be big enough when she tugged my tt forward I would like her NOT to do it cause I didn't want to be to big. So she said since my hips and butt looked more pronounced after she lipoed my lower back and tucking me she refrained from doing a full fat transfer. She did though fill in one of my small dents to even it out a bit .... hence the small bandaid under my right cheek. Lol:-).

Anyway, im glad she didn't do the bbl because my hips & ass looks HUGE now that my waist is smaller. All and all happy with my results!
Mine Never hurt at all sis. I knew she did it be cause it was disfigured looking. ...lol.... I was so shocked when I seen that. I just wanted to cry. She said she only filled my cellulite areas and the swelling would go down. Yea it went down but it's out there.
Reply
Lololololol. .... you too much! Well she told me she didnt do mine and by the lools off it doesn't seem to have been filled. ... but like I said im fine with that cause my hips and butt look huge. Ive. Alwsys been curvy but now it shows even more especially when I tried on some dresses yesterday. .... I was drooling. Just looking at myself! !! Lol

21 days PO

Good morning ladies! Here for a quick update. Well today I am officially Drain FREE!!!!!! Yay me! Im doing very well in my recovery and all looks well. I am a bit swollen at the bottom of my tummy but im thinking this is just a signature style of how robles does her TT. I am by no means disappointed though. I know I ama bit swollen and even retaining some ffluidsin my tummy which is sooooo weird but im hoping that shortly this affect if not have my drains in will subsides with no adverse affect. If anyone has any experience with dealing with tis abdominal fluid I would be greatly appreciative for the advice.
Anyway, Here are some pics I took yesterday at 20 days post op after having my side drain removed. Hope everyone is doing well! Ttys!
I've seen a lot of women retain fluid after a TT sometimes for 6-12 months. I know that's not what you want to hear, but it seems to be pretty common. You're looking awesome!! :)

OMG .... I finally SHOWEREDand it felt soooooo GOOOOOODah!!!!!!

Hello Ladies... so today I finally showered and it felt so good. I got up around 5:30 and drove to a 24 hr cvs so I can get some antibacterial soap and band aids to welcome in my first shower safely. ..lol. today my stomach looked flatter but it still has my little belly dancer pouch... I dont mind it much cause I gladly except it in replacement of my smiling flap jack.lol besides I think its a little sexy....I look like a curvy belly dancer with a hint of abs ;-)
U said u still have your drain in? How much was u drain when u took it out? Did she give u a certain time to take it out.? I asked cause Yily said to take out Monday but I'm still draining over 100cc and was wondering should it stay in longer
Reply
No hun my drains are out. She told me DO NOT take them out until I was draining 50cc's or less. I kept the back one in for 16 days and the side one for 21 days. Now that my drains sre out the fluids are building up in my abdomen . I can literally see tje fluids make my stomach wave. My girlfriend is going to give me her perscribtion water pills.
Reply
Oh ok cause I'm suppose to take these drains out but I'm draining over 100cc a day. Just trying to make sure it's not gonna hurt me in any kind of way. Can't ask cause Yily get a zero on post op care! Haven't been able to get in contact with anyone

Good morning ladies! So quick update. Hsd my 1 draining and it went very well. It was surprisingly painless despite of the HUGE! NEEDLE!!!! I definitely see a difference and I do feel much lighter with all that fluid out.I was told that's in our body will continue to produce fluid I will have to keep coming in for a few more sessions. Hopefully in time with enough compression and more and raining I will have the desired look I want. I am very happy thus farand am very happy I chose Dr Robles to do my surgery.

31 days PO!

Time is flying bye so quickly and I dont even remember the old me. Its weird cause I feel like ive always been this way. Anyway....hopefully I'll be getting my second draining on Saturday. .. my goodness ... this fluid builds up quickly, now I understand why some of our sx sisters have such a tough time wit b bloating and not being able to achieve thst flat look they're hoping for. Without the proper draining after sx and drains being removed the fuilds will just sit in your belly and become hard. Getting the proper after care is vital to your health ad well as your results. Well ladies. Till next time... hope all is well with you All. Ttyl! :-)

Im kind of glad I she didn't do my butt

my tummy tuck actually made my butt look nicer dimples and all!
Looking good!!!

Almost 9 weeks!

Gm ladies! Posting a few days earlier then my usual bi weekly post. Ok, so .... so far everything is WONDERFUL..... my incision is very low, Neat and precise! My belly button is adorable and the tuck itself is beautiful. Every day my physique looks better and better. I swell less and less and am able to go without my faja for a day.. . I put her on every night before bed.... it like a freaking ritual lolololololol! Anyway, no complaints here, I absolutely love what Dr. ROBLES has done for me. The one thing I can say is that I do notice since she doesn't lipo the TT area you tend to have a little "pooch, pouch, lower belly" or whatever you want to call it .... but to be honest I kind of like it! Maybe because I never really had a protruding stomach my belly pouch is not bad at all, very realistic looking.... I actually think i look like a belly dancer ...its sexy ;-).... Dr. Robles definitely gets 2 thumbs up from me.

oh.... and forgot to mention. .. I have my cycle and im bloated... it tends to be flatter then what you see un these pics.;-)

Hi! Congrats on your results. I was wondering who did you have remove your drain in NJ. I'm considering going to DR. although I'm super scared. I was sure how this works coming home with the drains. If you wouldn't mind sharing some info with me I'd love to speak with you . Thanks!!
Reply
One of my girlfriends did it. I was scared as well but she did an awesome job at helping me out. Shes a nurse so sje looked over my dressing every now and then to check for any signs of infections. But when she remived them I was really more scared than what pain I actually felt... it was pretty painless if you ask me.

High ladies! Just checking in. I dont have much to say but that im SUPER CONTENT with my results. I have worked hard and disciplined myself to obtain my, desired look. Im not there yet but I see myself very close to my goal. Do I think my tuck is flawless. ..NO, BUT!!!!! I am VERY great for where I am now. I absolutely love how SUPER LOW my scar is and how natural my stomach looks with its sexy pouch and all. .... like I mentioned before I kind of like it. ..I think it gives me that THICK as HECK belly dancer look. Lol. Anyway, Im totally happy and look forward to seeing futher improvement with good diet and exercise. Can't wait to work on my abs again cause I already see them trying to peek out and I havent even worked out once ever since my surgery;-)

Lol... why thank you latina curves! To answer some of your questions my incision is SUPER LOW and verl thin and smooth. I think I posted a pick to try and show it but I dont think you can see it very much. I willtry to post another. Its a tad bit darker then my skin tone but not by. Much. I lovlove it. Its very neat and even from side to side. I never developed dog ears so im super happy about that as well. My waist is small because under all the extra skin I had it was always small. Even before the surgery my waist was tappered so the TT just enhanced it.I havent gotten back to my exercise groove as I should but I hopefully will soon. I just been so busy trying to square everything out with the wedding that I havent been able to put sime time aside for any type of fitness. .:-( . Besides that thank you so much again for the compliments and best wishes. Hope you doing well also!

If you don't mind, How tall are you and how much did you weigh before you started your journey? What ever you did to lose all that weight, please share. I need your motivation you had! lol... And thank you for sharing your story and continuing update us soon to be DR dolls. Congrats on the wedding! ;) Blessings & Happy Healings!

Here you go FINALLFOCUSEDONME... ;-)

Good morning beauties. ... just a little help for those who ask what I did to lose the weight before my surgery. I copy pasted a replie i once sent a fellow RS Poster. Hope I could help anyone whos on the same journey as me. The best to all of you. If I could do it so could you!;-)

Good morning hun and thank you. I fly out on the 6th sx is scheduled for the 7th God willing. I actually lost alout of my weight by cutting back from eating rice and sugars. Dont get me wrong, I still eat sugars but most of the time I use sugar substitute like splenda or raw sugar. I dint eat rice ir many carbs at all .... maybe some pasta from time to time but hardly. And I drank TONS OF WATER!!! About a gallon a day. I had ine or two cheat days where I ate what I wanted and then would eat healthier foods like sald, soups and fruits. Ive always had a pretty flat stomach all my life but after having my last kid I ballooned up in weight. It did take me 2 years to be back to where I use to be before my last 2 babies. Im now 210.... on my profile pic I was 270. No one believes me when I tell them but ivecame to the cconclusion that since women lie so much about their weight people never saw the actual size of a REAL weight on a woman. Besides not all people distribute weight the same way. I tend to carry mine on my butt thighs and arms which I dont mind at all. I wish you the best on your journey.

After loosing all the weight I then started incorporating exercise into my daily routine. I did 100 situps, 100 squats and 100 knee to elbow standing touches. By the time I had the TT done alll of my effort started peaking through me new tight stomach. I did even know I had some ab definition till the swelling from surgery started going down. Now that I can exercise again I hope to get my work out routine back in rotation so that I can develop more definition to my stomach. That pretty much sums my whole process of how ive got to where I am now. Hope I was of some informative help to some. The best to you all again .Ttys!:-)

I'm Mrs. Drayton!!!

One of the BEST decisions of my life. I couldn't be happier.

Good morning ladies! Just dropping in to check on my RS sisters! Hope everyone is doing well. As for myself. ... im FABULOUS! Ive never felt better. All I can tell you ladies is that time and patience is a virtue. Swell hell will definitely be a thing from the past by the time a few months roll by. THOUGH..... I will suggest maintaining a good diet and exercise regiment will help Improve and maintain even better results after surgery. Taking care of your body will never feel better. Another thing I wanted to add was your after care is VERY IMPORTANT in achieving good physical, emotional and mental outcomes and results. Ladies choose carefully whom you choose to provide your care with .... Luxury means nothing if the correct attention to detail is not provided. MASSAGES AND MEDICATION intake are vital necessities to the recovery health of your bodies. I know I can't publish or promote where I stayed for my recovery but I will GLADLY tell you ladies to go. I am 100% satisfied with the services I was given because the staff makes all the difference. My masseuse was a triple threat when it came to my recovery....I owe to her. Trust me ladies. ..if you want good services in EVERY aspect of the word.... starting from Transportation,Beautiful and comfortable accommodatios, food, cleanliness sterile sterile environment, Nurse care and so much more.... you need to hit me up. I'll tell you were to go;-) fyi.... this is not any sale propagandaits simply from my personal experience I love these peopleand have been able to establish a very loving respectable relationship with them. Im just want you guys to have the best. Oh and just to mention. ... my masseuse is a CERTIFIED lymphatic masseuse...she knows what she's doing and how to help tje body to drain better. I can't day no more. ... they were the FREAKIN BEST.

The Results are real...

Im adding some extra pics so you can see im not wearing any waist cincher ... (though I do waist train) But I will say, if you dont put your part in exercising and maintaing your figure you results might not be to your desires content...SO STAY ON TOP OF YOUR PHYSICAL WELLNESS AFTER SURGERY LADIES.... oh and for those who asked I went to DR. WALKIRIS ROBLES. She's awesome. .... her super low incisions are all that and then some...but it all depends on how we individually heal. If youre prone to keloids your scars most likely will raise snd bubble but hopefully will still be low and yes you will still have stretch marks if you have high ones like myself and might even develop some from the skin tention. BUT ALL YOU LADIES WHO ARE PLANNING TO GO TO ROBLES she does NOT lipo the stomach area during TT. So if you end up not looking completely flat its normal for the typ of procedure she does. It will still look nice but be prepared to work out if you want it gone... I mysekf find it natural looking and sexy.;-)
Looking really good!

One more thing....

Ladies, be prepared to lose "Friends"... Some will be happy for you while otjer criticize you behind your back but smile in your face. SAY YOU LOOK WEIRD AND. STILL look fat and will try to get others opinions to jump onto a haters band wagon with them. Lol....trust me you will really find out who rocks out with you genuinely. Sad but true. All I can tell you guys to do is continue to love yourself before and after surgery. ... you deserve to feel good even if someone else feels like SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIT .... Let them get there LIFE, Cause you shouldn't give misery ANY COMPANY! -;-).... just let them hate all on there own...lol
I love love love your page and u look GREAT!!! How did u keep it up after surgery... How long did u wait to work out?
Reply
Hey sweety! Thanks for the compliment. I'd say I really started working out again mid August... so about 4 1/2 montjs later. .. they say wait six months though. But I just couldn't. .. I kind of let my body guide me into letting me know how far I could push it. Im still trying to get into my regular exercise routine. Ine thing is definitely true the ...slow and steady definitely wins the race. Best wishes to you on your journey!

Sorry if I'm blowing your post up! The last statement you mention on the 13th is sooo true and sad. A true friend is happy for you if your happy...not if their happy....Life is to short for the ***SHENANIGANS***LOL...God Bless : )
