27 Years Old, 1 Kid, Finally Doing It! - Halifax, NS

So I've been saving up my change for about 5 years now and after cancelling once years ago due to chickening out, I finally went through with my consultation for breast implants. It was completely laid back and relaxed. The doctor was very nice, he didn't rush, he was very professional and just an inviting guy. My goal was to become fuller overall but not too big- just a natural look that...

Surgery Day - Halifax, NS

I checked in at 10:00 for pre-op where my medications were reviewed, I had blood work, an ECG done, met with my surgeon who did my markings, and a nurse came to have me put on compression stockings and take me to the OR. During the time the surgeon met with me I asked various questions which I had written down prior to seeing him. I knew I would not see him after the surgery. He was in a rush...

1 Year Post Op first figure comp

I have never had a flat tummy. I have battled with a weight problem since my teens. Had 2 children when I was quite heavy to begin with. After my second child I decided to start my weight loss journey for good. I started in 2005 and have lost approximately 80 pounds. I am 5'9 around 153 pounds. I am in the shape of my life however, my tummy does not match the rest of my body. I feel that I...

Third Times the Charm...I Hope! - Nova Scotia, NS

I tried to write a review before but it ended up in the forum section so with 2 days to go I'd thought I'd get it right this time & post a review where its supposed to be :) I'm a single 45 yr old who lives in Nova Scotia with my 2 dogs & cat. I'm the girl that didn't wear a bra until I was 16. I used to get called names like Flatsy Patsy because of my small breasts. Then the...

I Done It! - Halifax, Nova Scotia

I am 41 yrs old. I have two beautiful boys ages 10 and 12. I have worked out consistently for the past 10 yrs and I eat very healthy. I am in good shape and fairly muscular. However, my tummy and navel has never responded to my excercising since my boys were born. They are stretched beyond return and no matter how much core and cardio I done, I realized that this was beyond my control. I...

Sexy Wolf joined the flat side!! TT, MR, lipo of flanks and inner thighs

I am a mother of 4.(11,9,7,5) I am very fit and train just about everyday. I have physical job and eat healthy for the most part. I have never been able to get rid of this baby belly and it has really gotten me down a lot. I don't feel very sexy most of the time. I have an amazing partner and he thinks I am beautiful and sexy but I just can't get past with how I feel about myself...

Liposuction After Kids, Hope It Helps Me Regain my Confidence! - Halifax, NS

I am getting Internal Ultrasonic liposuction on 17 Dec 2012 of the upper and lower abdomen, bra roll, and flanks. I have considered doing this procedure for nearly two years now, before I had my kids I was fit, and because I gained 68 pounds with my last pregnancy it left me with a lot of fat and rolls in areas I am having trouble to lose the weight. I would like to get my thighs done as well...

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction Flanks and Breast - Nova Scotia, NS

It is an hour until my procedure, and I'm really nervous. I'm 25 yrs old, and have been thinking about doing this ever since I grew these hips. I have been very skinny in the past and still had this problem, and my mother and sister both have these hips too. It is pretty obviously a genetic thing. It makes pants, skirts, and dresses look revolting and this fat needs to go! I'm getting flank...

Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift After an 80 Lb Weight Loss - Nova Scotia, NS

March 4, 2012 I was 5' and 198 lbs. I knew something needed to change so I made many changes and by December 2012 I had reached my goal weight of 120. I am so happy with my body overall, but my stomach is not pretty. It really bothers me. Also I am not the happiest with my breasts. Both due to weight gain and loss. I had been around 130-135 before my weight went up to 198. I phoned the...
