Excited Nervous Scared...all at Once - West Orange, NJ

So...this is the first time i am posting about...

So...this is the first time i am posting about myself. I've been on this site reading about you lovely ladies fir a couple of months. I must say you all look so beautiful!

A little about myself...i am 35 and havd never been happy with my body. I have lost approx 110 lbs over a 10 year span and am grateful i don't have excess skin to get rid of. I've been researching doctors for so long i didn't know which to choose. So being I'm from Jersey i.would choose a local dr. I've been on many consultations and the dr i chose is dr Sanjay lalla. Unfortunately i cannot find many reviews on him. My deposit is made and am scheduled for June 4th. I am so scared...mostly because of the general anesthesia. Is it really necessary?? My dr seems to think so. So ladies i need your help please. Has anyone had bbl done by Dr Sanjay lalla? Also how safe is general anesthesia. Please ladies only a few weeks left!!

Hi tAra723 I am now 4 day post op nd I'm uncomfortable but not in pain. My follow up us Thursday. I haven't seen everything because I'm afraid on not putting my garment back on snug enough. I liked Lalla bcuz he seemed confident. I have no regrets and I think you'll be fine

Hi Tara723, I'm scheduled with Lalla in 1 week. The little bit of reviews I've got were wonderful. How are you making out?
