I'm a 28 year old mother of a 4year old boy and 6 month twin boys. At one point in my life I weighed 346lbs.I lost 180 lbs and now I'm holding steady. I'm scheduled to have a full body lift done in one procedure on January 15, 2012. I can't believe my big day is almost here. I can't believe I will someday be the woman thin woman I've been all my life.
For some time I've been researching body lifts and my search has led me to Dr. Capella in Ramsey, NJ. I love the fact that he has done over 5000 body lift surgeries, is highly educated, experienced and knowledgeable in this field of plastic surgery. He's written journal articles, attended and lectured seminars and even on tv..So technically he's one of thee top body lift surgeon.
When I met him I loved that he was friendly, handsome and humbled. He was more than patient with my husband and I, especially since we came to the consultation armed with questions.
My only concern is that from his history his notoriety is evident but, his patients aren't active on sites like these. I rather have documented evidence instead of hearsay but whatever, maybe his patients are soo happy with their results that their out in the world oiling down and showing off their new sexy bodies. I don't know but I feel like I'm making a good decision.
My Body is FLAPPY and I certainly believe that my figure is extreme and I absolutely need a professional to tighten me up. Maybe it's my flappy delusions but, dammit I know I'm a hot flappy mess and need to be knotted down and yanked up... lol
It's important for me to document and display my results. Mainly for myself but also for the people who are considering this surgery. Maybe I can help out the dozens of people searching for Dr. Capella patients. I would've loved to run into myself during these last few moments before surgery.
I'm nervous, anxious, curious, I may have been a big girl but I always felt thin inside. This time it will be reversed. Wow the suspense.. lol
I hope to keep everyone updated as best as I can.
Hey guys soo far so good. Surprisingly I'm in pain...

Ok now to the issues yes I'm still healing. The area below my navel, right above my pubic is still open and oozing not nearly as bad as it used to be but it is healing. My navel has closed to the point where I can't get anything , pinky finger, nothing but a qtip inside it and that I have to force in just to make sure its clean I'm glad it's healed and no longer oozing. Doctor Capella would like to do a procedure not sure of the name to open it up but I have to wait until the scar tissue go down. Also those back flaps have gotten bigger or maybe I have gotten smaller IDK but the doctor also want to do a procedure to rid me of that. I thought I would look good in every shirt but I only look good in certain shirts. The flanks are still big. It bums me out but I have to remember I did have 5 of them things. Forgot to mention I may need a scar revision near my pubic hole but that is in a few months. I was hoping to be summer ready and far from healing with this surgery but I need to get rid of the extras. Now that I had the courage to take pictures and take a thorough circumferential glance. I believe my body isn't that bad.
Yea I have the meaty (ugh) flanks, the tiny navel, and the open oozing stomach but I still look and feel better than I did previously. I was told these are easier fixes but I 'm tired of being in pain. ,I'm beyond done but these revisions need to be done. I didn't pay all this money to have "issues".
I dont want to sound ungrateful because that I am not but, these meat flanks doesn't feel or look good in jeans or tees. The doctor said it should be rectified by May and I pray it will be.
also I have to note a correction from my comments. I was high on anesthesia and I want to correct that my second time in the hospital Dr. Capella didn't change a thing I'm still as I was surgery day Just in less pain.
I still have occasional tightness and swelling but things are getting better and I cant wait for this journey to end...It has been one hell of a ride..
I will update when I have my appointment in April and I'm also loading pics of my current healing.
Sorry the Pics are not in order but I will caption each as best as I can
Friends thanks for the CYBER LOVE I needed it ...
I I had an appointment with Dr Capella and Scott....
