30 Years Old Mommy with Stretch-marks and Loose Skin - Aventura, FL

I have been wishing of doing the mommy makeover...

I have been wishing of doing the mommy makeover ever since I gave birth. My pregnancy left me with many stretchmarks and loose skin in the tummy area. I started looking at realself around 1.5 years ago and that is how I decided what I wanted to have along with which doctor to me had the best results. I decided to go with Dr. Salama. I had my surgery last friday June 17th, 2016. I did breast augmentation, tummy tuck, arms lipo, chin lipo, full back lipo ( upper back, waist and lower back). Originally I was only going to get the lower back and arms lipo but since I am not planning on doing future procedures I decided the day before to go for everything. I took the 10 days at the recovery house as well. In terms of the procedure, I am still very swolen on my tummy but I already can see the slimmer me! My arms look way thinner however my belly looks a little more swollen on one side giving the appeareance of a bump. I know it is still to early to judge but overall I love my new shape. I was a B cup and wanted to have just a fuller look but keep it in the natural side so Dr. Salama recommended going to full C which I did and they look great! To be honest the hardest part for me have been dealing with all the back pain from not being able to standup straight. My back hurts even more than the surgery itself. I have been taking Flexeril as a muscle relaxer. For the pain Dr. Salama gave me percocet which I took the first three days but after that one of the girls in the recovery house had palpitations due to a lot of medication and I started taken motrin for the pain instead of the Percocet. Really the first three days are the worst part. I had my first massage yesterday. I had been dreading it specially since some of th girls in the house mention they were brutal. My experience was absolutely the other way around. I loooooooved my massage and it helped a lot with the back pain and my posture. My experience in the recovery house have been phenomenal. Grace and Kathy are my Angels!!! They take care of you with a love of love and caring. I cannot imagine doing this and not having them taking care of me. My first 24 hours were tough specially since the anesthesia kept giving hot flashes, nausea and dizziness. Grace in the recovery house did not leave my side and went above and beyond to make sure I felt the best I could given the situation. Very important to start taken the Colace since day 1 and not wait to be constipated as the process for doing number 2 with a tummy tuck is very difficult. I could not even twist to wipe myself and th staff was so loving and caring I cannot say better words for them, other than they were my Angels! If I had to do it all over again I would be willing to pay even twice to have them take care of me. I am on day 6 today and feeling so much better.

Dr. Salama did a great job with my breast augmentation, tummy tuck, arm lipo, full back lipo and chin lipo. I am very swollen still to see the end result but so far I am loving the results. He is a great doctor with an awesome staff both in the office and in the recovery house. Ty
