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!!!
March 2015 is my MONTH/YEAR!!!

PRAYING PRAYING PRAYING
TUMMY TUCK is not a WEIGHT LOSS surgery!
• 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")

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, 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.

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!!!
