ConCentrating on G.O.D!!!! HE knows BEST!

I FINALLY MADE UP MY MIND to have the Mommy...

I FINALLY MADE UP MY MIND to have the Mommy Makeover in late July or early August!!!! YAY ME!!!!

I am 42 (black/mixed with indian)...married...two grown young men...no grandkids...its just hubby and I at home...NOW its time for me to JusDoIt meaning its time for my MOMMY MAKEOVER...time to GET my SEXY back...I have been looking into PS here in the States which I have gone on countless consulations that range from $18,000 to $12,000 being the less expensive...I am not lookn to be in DEBT because its TIME for hubby and I to LIVE LIFE meaning its time to TRAVEL...so with that being said I am going to go to Tijuana or DR where there are GOOD PS that does not CHARGE a price of a 2013 car for a Mommy Makeover...PLEASE DO NOT JUDGE my decision and say I am being CHEAP...NO I AM doing what I FEEL IS BEST!!

I have received quotes from Pantoja, Campos, Fuentes, Cardenas, Yily, Robles, so on and so on...and I think imma go with Salvador Pantoja if I decide to go to Tijuana and I think Dr Robles if I go to DR...

I have seen reviews here on Pantoja and Robles TT and BA (which is my MAJOR concern)....I am not lookn for a VIXEN booty...I just need this EXCESS TUMMY SKIN GONE and my SAGGY BOOBS LIFTED...I will look into the booty lifting next round...

I live 3hrs away from San Diego which is very GOOD for going to Tijuana for my surgery....Pantoja quoted me $6800 and offers unlimitied post ops visits...

Now, I will have to FLY to have surgery in DR with Robles who quoted me $5900...she has a very good package that includes a 10 day stay at a RH...but, I will have to add on 4-5 days extra to see if I can have the drains/stitches removed...cause I will not be able to make trips back to DR....

PLEASE let me know your SUGGESTIONS for PS that is GOOD with Extended Tummy Tucks and Breast Lift with Implants!!!

Thank You All!!!

CONFUSED!

I need to STEP up my RESEARCH...cause I think I need a circular tummy tuck (not an extended) I'M TALKING ABOUR ALLLLL THE WAAAAY ROUND LOL...see I am in NO RUSH cause this is a MAJOR surgery no matter what I GET!!!

TUMMY TUCK is not a WEIGHT LOSS surgery!

Tummy Tuck Details

• Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) removes excess skin and stretch marks after pregnancy or weight loss. During a tummy tuck the plastic surgeon directly removes excess abdominal skin and fat, and also tightens the abdominal wall.
• Tightening the abdominal wall pulls in the abdomen (seen best on side view pictures) and corrects any bulge or diastasis that resulted from having children
• If you happen to have a significant distance from your lower ribs to your pelvis (common if you are tall), then the mid-line tightening will also cause notable bowing of the musculature along the flank region, and this will improve your hour-glass figure.
• For most patients, between 30-50% of the abdominal skin can be removed. This gets rid of any stretch marks that had been present on that skin. The remaining skin has to be stretched out to cover the whole abdomen, and this intrinsically makes it thinner.
• A new belly button is created. With "standard" scar length tummy tucks, the rotational component of aligning the scars helps pull in the waist line (improving the hour glass shape as well). Longer scar lengths (extended abdominoplasty) has the benefit of an anterior thigh lift.
• A surgeon may perform liposuction in conjunction with a tummy tuck (most often the flanks or "love handles")

PRAYERS to all WHOM had surgery and scheduled for surgery soon!!! GOD be with YALL!!

Seroma

******* SEROMA *******
A seroma is a pocket of clear serous fluid that sometimes develops in the body after surgery. When small blood vessels are ruptured, blood plasma can seep out; inflammation caused by dying injured cells also contributes to the fluid.

Seromas are different from hematomas, which contain red blood cells, and from abscesses, which contain pus and result from an infection. Serous fluid is also different from lymph.

Seromas can also sometimes be caused by injury, such as when the initial swelling from a blow or fall does not fully subside. The remaining serous fluid causes a seroma that the body usually gradually absorbs over time (often taking many days or weeks); however, a knot of calcified tissue sometimes remains.

Seromas are particularly common after mastectomies, partial-breast radiation therapy,[1] abdominal surgeries, and reconstructive surgery

******* Treatment *******
Seromas or lymphatic leaks (lymphoceles) may be difficult to manage at times. Depending on the volume and duration of leakage, control of a leak may take up to a few weeks to resolve with aspiration of serums and the application of pressure dressings. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) conducted by a trained professional can also assist in managing and treating seromas.

If a serum or leak does not resolve, for example after a soft tissue biopsy, it may be necessary to take the patient back to the operating room in order to place some form of closed suction drain into the wound. This usually is not necessary and conservative management prevails.

******* References ********

(1 October 2006), "Consistency in seroma contouring for partial breast radiotherapy: Impact of guidelines", Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 66 (2): 372–6, doi:10.1016/j.ijrobp.2006.05.066, PMID 16965989
2.Jump up ^ Schwartz's principles of surgery: self assessment and board review, 8th edition, chapter 11, patient safety, errors, and complications in surgery

******* ???????? ********
So who's at FAULT for the development of SEROMA? what if the patient takes the drain out before instructed...or, does not get the recommended massages...or, does not follow the recommended diet...and, what if the PS takes the drain out before its time...or, does not tell the patient to get massages...or, does not tell the patient that proper diet...

its BEST to RESEARCH and ASK QUESTIONS and GET SHIT IN WRITING!!!

Nadia (Dr Pantoja) and Laura (Dr Robles) - Assistants

Okay... I sent Nadia (Dr P) and Laura (Robles) an email regarding my monthly cycle and asking what is best...blah blah blah...Nadia responded the next day (I be up late emailing LOL) and she asked when do I start and end...I couldn't be exact but luckily my cycle was ending and I told her I would let her know if I can REMEMBER the previous months...GUESSS what???? still haven't heard back from Laura...LOL...Well, I found notes on my calendar for Jan but nothing for Feb and I had March and April...so sure enough I had to change my surgery date (yeah I got a date with Dr P too)...LOL...GUESS WHAT???? still no reply from Laura....two days later (last night) she responded "do worry we are able to do with that" WTF....deal with WHAT??? changing my tampon (sorry)...I know you are able to give me iron SHOTS...but, who wants to be on their cycle!!!!

I saw that you're concerned about a circular TT vs the extended. Perhaps you could see a surgeon in the US just for a consultation (sometimes they do it for free), then if he/she says to go with one method over the other, you'll be able to share that with your doc in the DR. Just a thought, good luck to you dear! :)

SORRY for the delay in responding but I am a probation officer and I stay at my work location 2.5 days...I have a date with Robles for Aug 26th but I am STILL up in the AIR and I haven't made my deposit...I am beyond concerned about the aftercare!
  • Reply
It may also be no one at fault, but the way a person's body does or does not absorb the fluids- or reacts to surgery altogether. Of course, research & educate oneself, I'm not saying otherwise. Research PS and research the procedures one is interested in. Each PS also has different theories, very obvious when comparing PS's from different countries. I think this is why I appreciate RS & all the courageous ladies who shared their journys. I have been able to take what my ps has told me & added what others shared & really made sense to me. And of course, actually being in the recovery stage brings up new questions we most likely hadn't thought of prior to sx. Having Faith in the PS chosen is important, along with trusting God in the entire process. Imma, you have really done your homework & have educated yourself. I am sure you will have a wonderful experience with whomever you chose. You will heal wonderfully, especially because you are so active. You know doctors can only control so much, the rest lies on whether our body cooperates. (But we listen to what our body tells us in order to be proactive).
  • Reply
AWESOME STATEMENT @GETTINGITBACK...you are SO CORRECT...I think for "some" its easy to blame the PS especially when one goes overseas and return with no aftercare...then the need to find HELP and then the "no communication" that may happen...its REALLY "EYE OPENING" here on REAL SELF...I respect anyone WHO KEEPS it 100% despite how others UPLIFT a certain PS...if it happened to THEM let them SHARE their experience without ARGUMENTIVE comments...I sometimes FEEL like NOT doing IT AT ALL...but, I can't let the WHAT IFs consume MY THOUGHTS...LIKE you stated "trusting GOD in the entire process"....GOD BLESS YOU!!!

Hey there- happy to hear you're considering staying local again =) Personally, I find it comforting to know ps is close enough to visit. In my case, I don't think I would have known I had Seratoma, it wasn't a "bump" as the pix some RS ladies had posted. May God cont to give you peace in whom you select =)

THANKS! plus Nadia (dr p assistant) responds so FAST! and, she gives recommendations to save money (like garments/boppy pillow/meds/ect)...and, I'm still waiting to hear back from Laura (dr Robles assistant) regarding recommendation on surgery and monthly cycle...which I emailed her and nadia the same night...I woke up with Nadia response...still waiting on Laura...LOL
  • Reply
Nadia, is a beast! She's on top of things (she' has another young helping as well), however, I've emailed a few times, and the response time was quick. She also calls at least once a week, just see how I'm doing, and if I need anything. I'm not particular needy, but, I love great customer service! Having a coordinator like Nadia is essential to ps's team.

FOR REAL @nycgr1momof2...she is really awesome...I think her assistant name is Ruth...I talked to a Ruth last year which Ruth does the phones and Nadia does the emails and scheduling and Dr P right hand....NOW Laura I don't know what to say about her!

Hey girly.....Beachbody Coach. I too am a coach. Funny meeting you here. lol. Coaches need surgery too. lmao. any who....I am loving my workouts. I have been at it for 3 or 4 years now. Les Mills Combat is now my ultimate favorite. Insanity is great and I have done it 3 times but the jumping has killed my knees. T25 is great too but once again the movements put a lot of pressure on my knees. Les Mills Combat has been the least painful I mix it up though so I never omit anyone. Even Tony gets some action once in a while . I also love love love Body Beast. I max out on lower body for real. Trying to strengthen and tone these juicy things of mine. I should save it for a possible BBL but I don't need it. Squats and lunges are my friend. Can get rid of the mommy pouch but I got that BBL Beachbody style. BTW you are looking amazing. Keep at it girl Keep it real and Stay with the fight.
