The Best Decision I've Ever Made For Myself - Washington, DC

I had been overweight/obese for most (if not all) of my life. After getting out of a relationship that lasted almost a decade, I took a look in the mirror and literally didn't recognize myself. I started on a journey to get healthy (got a personal trainer, changed my eating--you know, the usual story; b/c that works) and the end result was me losing 80+ lbs in under a year).

Having had so much weight on my body for so long, my skin didn't have hardly any elasticity left. I had/have stretch marks everywhere, and although I'd lost a great deal of weight, you couldn't see my shape below the tons of extra, lose skin. So I made the decision to get a tummy tuck and breast reduction/lift. It literally changed my life. For the first time ever, I can see my shape and it really showed off all the hard work I'd put into getting my body back on track.

I had a few issues with my belly button and the scars and the easiest to deal with, but I'd do it all again in a heartbeat. It was definately worth it.

There was no way for me to combine procedures, but I had both a tummy tuck and breast reduction together. the total cost for each procedure was $7,500, so the total cost was $15,000.

You look great! Obviously no regrets, there. Just wondering, though, did you have "dog ears" on your hips after the surgery? I am almost 1 month out and I still have one that looks pretty bad.

Hi there, you are correct--no regrets. I was lucky enough not to have problems with dog ears. I did end up having a tummy tuck scar revision because of a dermatologist overdoing my kenalog injections. My surgeon said that if I had dog eats though, she would do revisions free of charge. Maybe you can inquire about that as an option. They usually make you wait a year though to make sure all the swelling has subsided.

You look unbelievable! I want to see the end results of your boobs! Mine are as sagged out and I'd love to have a lift. :)

Ok. I'll post more pictures and show the boobs. When I tell you everything sagged, it's no exaggeration. The would joke about it to my friends and say, my breasts have gotten so long. LOL
