Walkiris Robles, MD......Dominican Republic Tummy Tuck, Aggresive Lipo to flanks, back

Have been wanting a tummy tuck since 4over 15years...

Have been wanting a tummy tuck since 4over 15years...had my son at 16 and never got a chance to wear a 2piece swimsuit/bikini....preweight was 125 then after my 2nd child I blew up to 185 not to mention that im only 5'1....went back down to 130with starvation and tons of exercise and no longer at that weight....I have been at 155-160 for the last 3years....my dream is to have my entire body done but maybe little by little since I am not financially set for entire procedure yet....maybe in steps:) Right now I want to focus on my tummy....my boobs are still okay with a bra but as soon as bra comes off its a nightmare lol...im at 36d but in"sagville"without bra.....lol....I also need armlift but hoping once I get tummy out of way I will get confident enough to go gym and work on rest of body.....my body is a nightmare:( my dilemma is choosing the one that is gonna give me that natural looking belly button and curves...I cant seem to find that here in Tampa so far I like walkiris Robles in Dominican Republic,, Laura Carmina Cardenas in Tijuana Mexico and Timothy Alexander or Mel Ortega in Miami....lets see how the quotes go......

my deformed body

this is nasty...these pictures but it is what it is((gross))

Scheduled Surgery

ok, so I paid my deposit, Scheduled surgery for January 20, 2014 exactly one month away.....omg, I haven't exercised in about a year, have not been taking care of myself (eating wise)and now I need to get on the ball and prepare by body and mind,,,,Lord guide me in the right direction((please)) ONE MONTH COUNTDOWN..is what I have...I was desperate and didn't want to wait long months for something I know ive been dreaming about for years....SO lets do this, off to buy my vitamins and all......I feel rushed with the holidays and all but I want this more than anything,,,this has been torture my entire life,,,the depression, being self conscious, insecure..the whole nine yards.....im freaking ready ((except for the pain lol)) im scared as heck of that, but know that I am not alone and my god is good and will be there with me like he always has!!!!!!


From Laura Castro:

1- Please start taking 300mgs of Iron twice a day,
2- 5mgs of folic acid once a day. Also, stop taking aspirin or aspirin related compounds, and vitamin E and Vitamin A as well.
2- Schedule an appointment with your local lab or clinic, in order to have a CBC (complete blood count) done.
Dr. Robles needs to check your hemoglobin levels, as well as other important things the test shows.
3- Please drink 2-4 litter of water daily.
4- Eat healthy.
5- Complex B once a day
6-Vitamin C once a day

Omg almost there:0

Have my flight booked, did EKG , and CBC but was on my period when I did it, not sure if that makes a difference or not,, my hemo was at 12.3 but I think my iron was a bit low. Does that make a difference? Somebody please explain ,, I'm confused but I think she said my iron was "36" and nurse told me to double up on iron but does my period affect that?? Help with info please. , other than that,, I've been buying a fee things here n there trynna to get ready!! I asked my doc for Percocet or muscle relaxers n he said no:( what a a$$,, do they have meds that strong over there? I don't wanna die of pain:(

Passport

Yay I got my passport......starting to get excited,,, which is good because for a second there, I thought I was gonna start panicking and stressing as the day gets here, but I want this and need this......im still trying to find a doc though that will prescribe me pain meds and muscle relaxers here in tampa....ohhhhh lord please be with me after the procedure....and ease my pain:0

Hi,quick update

Haven't had the chance to update because I wasn't feeling well at all,,,I'm retaining lots of water so I'm super swollen,,, let me just say dr.robles is amazing and a very good dr,, very professional and beautiful in person,,, I expected the whole out of country surgery thing to be not so great but so far,,, not bad at all,,,I like it, very tropical......cecip surgery center was also nice, better than what I expected,,, day of surgery was good until I woke up,,,, I had trouble breathing but I assume it was from raja being so tight and from tummy tuck ,,, felt like my ribs were crushing,,, not really pain just so much pressure and I panicked but that went away after a few days ,,,,,, my back from lipo feels like I'm carrying 20kids super heavy but gets better each day, I walk but get so tired after a few minutes,,,,,,, hate this swelling so much

Front view 3rd day

got home safe and sound

stayed at Virginias recovery house from 1/21 to 1/31(ten days) its great to have someone help u there cuz I woulda never been able to do it on my own, I had help for everything from putiing my socks on to wiping my booty lol, I was swollen so I couldn't reach..thank god for them...they also cooked, did our laundry and heard me vent allday oops(sorry).....I flew in to Orlando Friday and am to be happy to be home.....I contacted dr robles about my drains on whatsapp and she responded immediately......its awesome how she responds in a timely manner and cares about her patients.....let me tell u,,,,she is on point,,,her patients come first....the whole experience was good and I have no regrets except being on a diet before surgery.....I shoudve been eating 2months before nothing but healthy food....I blame some of my swollenness on my high eating sodium before and after surgery eating.....I started eating healty and I noticemy severe swelling is going away each day now that im home.....if I eat unhealthy, I swell back up.....took me a few days to figure this out after surgery.....so ladies watch what u eat after.........I gained almost 20lbs of wATER retention....changing subject...im so happy I met mommyof4 and her sister.....they were so nice.....we still keep intouch on ig and fb:).....I will be posting more pics soon as I progress.........did I mention im so happy with my new waist and curves???? I wanted DR Duran at first cuz of how she makes booty but after keeping it real...nawwww.....the whole video vixen is tooooo much....robles is keeping it real and not over doing it, ladies u will not be disappointed.......im glad she didn't give me a bigger booty and just "fixed"me in the right places......I luv ROBLES lol

Peek a booo

Cleaning my belly button and thought I would take a pic:) it looks so natural, that's the main reason I chose to have tummy tuck in different country,, I wanted the natural look and not looking like a flat wall with a peeping whole like some surgeons do in u.s,,,,,,, I was looking for that I was born with this look lol,,,, can u see my thin incision soooooo thin n low??? I luv been though I'm still super bloated
