52 Years Old. 3 Children. Always Hated my Abdomen Area - Bogota, Colombia

I've finally put my thoughts/wishes to action....

I've finally put my thoughts/wishes to action. Booked my flights and date for surgery today. I'm nervous and excited. However I'm confident with my choice of surgeon. I went with Dr. Rafael Gomez , mostly for the years of experience he has and the positive reviews from all the ladies on this site. He was prompt and informative in getting back to me. His assistant Lillian seems like a gem. She's so personable on the phone and helpful. Knowing that once I arrive in Bogota I'll be in capable hands; relieves my worries. Especially since I don't speak Spanish. I'll keep you gals updated on my experience with this road to my "chrysalis ".

8 days post op

I've done it! I'm post 8 days. Let me say one thing, it's probably the toughest thing I have ever endured. At least the first 3 days, afterwards it gets better but your not going to be doing any salsa dancing just yet. Unless it's in slow mo. Lol
I'm so pleased with my results. I'll be posting my photos on a later date. Dr. Gomez achieved the smaller waist and smooth sillioute I was hoping for. And the breast lift, well they're pretty perky . One thing I will say about Dr. Gomez, he's so kind and compassionate. He is also a conservative Dr. I felt I was safe and in the best of hands. Now regarding the aftercare. I couldn't imagine going thru what I've been thru without these amazing nurses and xhelpers. I'm so humbled on how comfortable and cared for they made me feel. Never once when I needed assistance that I ever felt I was a hindrance. They were so compassionate , encouraging; and believe me when I say I needed them, especially the days following the surgery. Life was made so easy with them by my side, from meals, to Drs appointments, to just purchasing things in a Spanish speaking country because I don't speak Spanish. Note , you will need google translate. Not everyone is fluent in English. However , with google translate it's not a problem. Another thing that I received were massages that released the fluids in you from the surgery. Believe me when I say , you'll be anticipating them because they make a world of difference. And Mary, she's the masseuse but she's also a nurse. I'm so grateful to be in her competent hands. Overall , I can't say enough good about my experience with DR Gomez, and his wonderful staff.
