Lengthy review but a must-read for all of my mommy...

Lengthy review but a must-read for all of my mommy makeover candidates!!!Growing up I was extremely overweight I lost 80 pounds and had some extra skin in my tummy area and wanted some work in the future. Flash Forward two years later I got pregnant and gained a hundred and thirty pounds in my pregnancy, yes I said a hundred and thirty pounds! Flash Forward a year later I'm now down a hundred and fifteen pounds with proper diet and exercise. So my body has been big, too skinny 2 pregnant and extremely overweight to back thin. As you can see my skin has been through a lot of trauma. I've had double D breasts all the way down to an A cup so with that being said my massive gain, then massive loss left my skin and breast extremely saggy. So I opted to get a mommy makeover for my breast and stomach area. I researched the best doctors in Florida and as we all know Miami is one of the number one places to go for cosmetic surgery and I stumbled across CG cosmetics. They had really great reviews on Google and I also had some Word of Mouth(friends) tell me to go there. At cg cosmetics they specialize in breast augmentation.I was very unhappy with breast and my skin so I opted to go with CG cosmetics. I got assigned a coordinator which was Karina whom i really felt was helpful all in all,and, I don't blame her-but the initial setup to try to make my first pre-op appointment was discouraged greatly by CG cosmetics because the way they do it is the day RIGHT before surgery and I did not feel comfortable with that. I was very adamant about talking to the doctor and seeing him beforehand so I drove 4 hours to Miami to go see him. When I got there I waited about 20 minutes and once the doctor came in the room we had a total of a five-minute conversation!!! There was no friendliness whatsoever from the doctor, no likeable personality whatsoever from him at all- being that he was rather rude and arrogant! He seemed very annoyed with my questions and concerns about my body! This made me feel somewhat intimidated and I did not like that one bit and was rather hesitant about choosing him just from him being a complete asshole! But like I said they had really good reviews and a couple friends told me to go there and they were much cheaper than most other surgery centers. They have three doctors I believe that work there total so if you choose them you might not get doctor Freiman. The day of surgery I sat in this really tiny room, waited for the doctor to arrive and he drew on my body where the work would be done at. I TOLD HIM OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN EVERYTHING I WANTED, BEING VERY STERN ABOUT WHAT HE WAS GOING TO DO! You have to be! And do not, I repeat do not let him intimidate you and the decision that you make on your body. The only thing I let him influence was the size of my implants because he told me if I went too big they could rip out of the bottom of my skin which I was afraid of! And I didn't really want huge boob's like some women,(no offense) but good size and most importantly peerkyness. I'm 5 ft 11in, tall and a slim athletic body shape and went with 330 CC's on the right and 350 CC's on the left being that my left boob was smaller than my righy. So for my breast I got an anchor lift and saline implants. WHICH I MUST SAY I ABSOLUTELY LOVE!!! Dr. Freeman is rude and arrogant, this is true but he is great at his craft if you are very Stern with him! I'm a perfectionist when it comes to proportions and things being in order and he did a really great job on them especially being on how bad they were before hand. I would even say better than I expected! So now for my tummy tuck I wanted to make sure that the scar was low enough that I could wear a bikini because I am going to do bikini competitions. This scare is from hip to hip, about 12 inches long but it is rather low. I'm not going to lie I wish the scar was lower just a little but the end result of my contour and shape is absolutely stunning! And I'm pretty sure with all the good scar removers there are I'll be able to hide it with the little makeup. He went in and stitched my abdominal muscles back together because after childbirth your abs no longer meet in the middle thus making your waistline appear bigger. I have my full on hourglass shape back and I am in love with it!! I must say the pain was extreme!! I had a few moments where I wondered if it was worth it being that the pain was so bad and I could not yet tell what had really been improved. I do not like pain, have no tattoos so your pain tolerance may be better than mine but none the less it was nothing pleasurable whatsoever. If you ask me would I do it over again, 3 months post op as I am now, I would say yes. I got my body back before my child and it's better than ever! You only get one follow-up check-up with them and if you can't make it to them because they're too far you can go to another doctor around your location. Important advice would be to make sure you clean your scars at least twice a day this is very important for minimal scarring! My before and after pictures are striking . I would recommend CG cosmetics to anyone in my shoes.

Stunning work, rude man. Be very adamant with him because he might tell you other wise but I love what he did to my body.
