My first surgery was on June 6, 2013 for my tummy...

My first surgery was on June 6, 2013 for my tummy tuck with liposuction . I had a new procedure done on me where I was awoke the whole time. While I thought my first doctor did a good job until I started getting sick. I developed hemotemos and they didn't no how to removed it. I had to have a second one Dr. Gold fix everything and removed the hemotemos and hernias I had. Made my stomach look even better. He made me feel real special by coming to check up on me every day I was in the hospital and he changed my bandages every day. Unlike the first doctor who made mistakes. Dr. Gold restored my faith back in the plastic surgeons doctors. The chief of plastic surgery also checked my old doctor out and found out that he was not a plastic surgery. Ladies I did do research about that doctor so what I'm saying do more and ask your regular doctor for help or just go to them. I wish I had did that in the first place . I am happy with my tummy tuck now.

New shape

Four weeks out of tt with clothes on , still swollen . Each day looking better and feeling good.

I was feeling a little down because I to spend another birthday with out my mom,but was able to turn it arounding knowing she is looking down on me with a big smile. Well , ladies Iam able to put on a size 8 jeans wow. Being working out hard these few months inches are coming off good reducing my BMI. The weight is slow,but that good too I guess. My trainer told me not to focus so much on the scale because muclse weight more I guess. People are noticing a differences in my size and it feel good too. My thighs are starting to get smaller I think. I did learn one thing I was not getting enough protein in my diet had to increase it a lot. My trainer had me write down everything I eat and what time of the date I consumed it. WOW eye opener. I can now get in a size 8 jeans feels so good . Will post pic later at work writing this lol.I want to thank everyone for all the great advice and help cause I wouldn't be where iam at now.

Four months and six days out

Hi , well I like my stomach and how I look in my clothes too. My measurements are bra size is 36 c my waist is so far 25.5 and my hips that I hate are 38.5 . Before measurement bra size 34/36b and waist was 37 wow and the hips were 42.5 . My only problem is I have a very deep belly botton which you could hide stuff in . Second I may be developing a seroma around my bb. I hope that is it nothing else . I was trying to go without my CG at night my big mistake . Other ,wise than that; I'm doing good an still have no regrets. I'm still working out too. I was going to have a fat transfer from my hips to my breast to make them more fuller , but the doctor said I didn't have enough fat wow I couldn't believe that me . Real life was asking for an update so here it is. One more thing ,thank you ladies for being my support systems it really ment a lot to me ????????

Costume

My Halloween costume

mistake on my measurement

The doctor'a gave me the wrong measurements someone else :( but not to far off . Breast are still the same 36 but the waist and hips are different waist is 28 and hip are 39.5 so not to bad. He said my waist will get smaller . He also gave me a compliment too. He said, " most women would kill for my figure." That made me feel a lot better cause I have a hard time seeing my new body. I'm working on it. There are two ladies on here that I want to say thank for helping me see me . D37 and bariatirc life. Also want to thank everyone else to for your kind words. I'm still losing weight and getting tone, like I said bikini here I come .

I just reread your review and am a bit confused about your FIRST surgery as you mentioned it was in June last year. However, later in your review it sounds like this was actually your second surgery. Are the BEFORE photos here how you looked AFTER your first surgery!! If so your first surgeon didn't do much to improve your shape!! No wonder you had a revision. I belong to the revision club too as I had my second TT almost four weeks ago.
