I kept on my weight loss Journey, be moins a lit le more fit every day. I belive i am in a great state of mind now. About my body as well as my transformation, I want this surgery more than anything at this point.

Some picture of my loose skin

Just thought I would share what it look likes without clothes and when I'm lying in bed. It is very uncomfortable and pretty hard for me when it's time to get intimate. This skin flip flops all around during sexual Intercourse and it hurts.

Consultation with Dr Earl Campbell and his nurse Johanne

Today I went for my consultation about my tummy tuck and possibly a breast augmentation. When my Roomate and I got there I was very excited and nervous. We are from 2 hours out of town so we were a bit early. We waited in the waiting room for a bit. Then Johanne the nurse got us into the consulting room. She introduced herself. Then we started talking about how i got to be in the office. I told her my journey of weight loss and she wrote my health history in my file. Then I brought up that I wish to also have a breast augmentation. So she asked me what kind of looked I'd like to achieve. We talked about boobs for quite a long time, maybe a good hour. She answered all the questions my Roomate and myself had. She was so knowledgeable. Very nice person. I loved her! She made me wear some of the implant to look what I liked. After that we talked about the Tummy tuck, which is the most important for me. She explained to me a little how it would work, but said I would talk more about it with Dr Campbell. So he came in the room, introduce himself, wonderful man! He shook our hands and then he had a look at me with the implant on. Then they had me change in a gown. He came back in the room and proceeded to a breast exam. My breast is healthy so no worries here. Then he measure me and draw a little graphic. He said I should have a lift of one of my breast, I have a boob that droops a little more and , lifting it would make them more symmetrical. Then he assessed my tummy. To my pleasure he told me I was the perfect candidate for a tummy tuck! I was beyond happy to hear that!
