I'm Finally Doing It! - Phoenix, AZ

I have always wanted to get a breast augmentation....

I have always wanted to get a breast augmentation. I went for a consultation before my wedding 8 years ago and chickened out of doing it. Eight years and 2 kids later I'm finally going to do it! I went in for a consultation (May 7th) just for a breast augmentation, but I thought I would also ask about a tummy tuck. I'm 5'3 and 122 pounds and my stomach isn't the same after having my 4 year old and 21 month old. I workout and eat clean for the most part, but still have a pooch. The doctor said I'm a perfect candidate for a mini tummy tuck. After finding out the cost and discussing it with my husband I decided to have both surgeries. I really wasn't sure at first, but I know that I will be much happier once I have the tummy tuck done. My husband is very supportive of my decision. My surgery is scheduled for June 19th! I'm really excited, but nervous. I'm afraid of the pain and that I won't be able to take care of my kids. My husband can take the first 3 days off and then my mom is helping me for 2 days so I'm hoping I'm okay by day 6. If not, my mom or husband will have to step up. I know it will all be worth it in the long run! I will post pictures later...


Do you have pics. He is soon to be my ps ?

I'm thinking of going to see Dr. Kotoske, I've heard he has decent pricing. I'm a bit curious though about the pricing of the mini. What is the exact costs for just the mini and are you just having loose skin removed? any muscle reconstruction?
