Part 1: Mommy Makeover Preparations...

I am currently in the middle of consultations (or as I prefer to think of it, 'interviewing surgeons'). I've done three so far, but I'm scheduled for eight with one more to schedule. They run through October. I'm planning my surgery for January of 2013. About me: I am 37 years old, just... READ MORE

Satisfied now :) - San Mateo, CA

I had a moderate crossbite and some crookedness that was getting worse over the years. I'm 37 years old, but I never thought there wasanything worth fixing with my teeth until my late 20s. Slowly, one of my front upper incisors became crooked enough that it was affecting my smile from the side... READ MORE

Part 2: Ultimate Breast Lift and Tummy Tuck. Nearly 22 months post-op and a consultation today!

You can read Part 1 of my journey here. Updated on 2 Nov 2012: Yesterday, I was able to go straight from ultrasound to biopsy. To save time. Which is fantastic. However, biopsy results at Kaiser usually take 3-5 business days. Baaaaaaad! But first, for those of you who, like me before... READ MORE

Dental Crown - San Mateo, CA

I had a 30-year-old amalgam filling in my lower left pre-molar that finally started leaking. I have excellent oral hygiene, which may have contributed to the longevity of the filling. The tooth turned gray a couple of months ago, and when I went to the dentist for my cleaning a couple of weeks... READ MORE

Small-scale Liposuction to Revise Results of a Tummy Tuck - Foster City, CA

I had a tummy tuck just about 22 months ago, in November of 2012. When I maintain a very low weight, the results are fine. Unfortunately, as soon as I gain a little weight, a shelf of fat appears above my TT scar. I would expect this were I significantly overweight, but I am 5'8" and weigh... READ MORE

Removing Six Dog-ears and a Minor Abnormality in my Belly Button, 22 Months Post Mommy Makeover - Foster City, CA

Hi! I had a mommy makeover on 6 November 2012, and at that time, I was left with some very large puckering at each end of every incision. In addition, I spit a stitch in my belly button and it was right where the knot was, so I got a lump there. After nearly two years, these dog-ears are all... READ MORE

Cool, thank you! My scars have improved a little but I'm still really interested! Good luck :) READ COMMENT

Very impressive! Thank you for letting me know you updated--beautiful results so far. Good luck with your continued treatment =D. READ COMMENT

Nope--it doesn't happen to everyone. It's common, but rarely permanent and in most cases nothing to be concerned about other than the difficulty eating :). If you clench your teeth a lot, or grind, it's very likely to happen, though! READ COMMENT

My doctor always said two-six years per retainer, depending on a lot of factors. You can ask in September how long they estimate the life of your retainer to be. Essix retainers are pretty strong :). READ COMMENT

Whew! Glad to hear they've loosened up for you. Don't forget to replace your retainers regularly, as they get too loose! READ COMMENT
