44yo First-time "Free" Botox - Pasadena, CA

I'm an RS vet migrating over from the MM site - no prep here other than reading some scary "not worth it" botox stories. Geez, talk about making a simple procedure into a nightmare-ish decision!

Congrats on picking Dr. O'Toole (also my surgeon)! He's awesome! :) I'm guessing your tats will not be affected, seeing as they are pretty high up on your chest. If anything, they will lay right above your newly-placed nipples. lol... READ COMMENT

I'll be the first to say - Happy 11mos!! :D Awesome-looking as always, love the bikinis and all the retail therapy (always good for one in this stage of recuperation), and I can never get over how skinny your waist is!! I don't think... READ COMMENT

On my review I have a video and post on "Sea of CG's" - see? I speak from experience! CG-BUYERS-ANONYMOUS! I had almost 30 of them!! And don't wear ANY anymore. But didn't spend alot on them... My faves were the pull-on shorts kind... READ COMMENT

Spend more on your sports bra if it's something you will be using way after PO when you're back to "normal". Spend less on your CG and support garments bcz you won't be wearing them after 3-4mos PO. READ COMMENT
