Hi Ladies,
I selected Dr. Medina originally for my procedure Tummy Tuck, Lipo & Lipo of my arms I received my qoute and just need to send my deposit. However I just emailed Dr. Robles for a qoute I have to admit her work looks amazing as well.
My final decision will be based off communication I keep reading about supplements & test and I have not received that type of informatiin from Medina which left me with wondering if I'm missing something or should I relax?. I also asked was there anything I need to do I do not want to prolong my surgery considering I have to wait till June, do my BMI needs to be at certain place? What exactly do I need to have completed prior to my arrival? She has not advise me of anything just where to send my money so now I'm looking elsewhere her work is amazing but effective communication is extremely important ????

Please share your experience if you received service from one of these lovely Doctor's

I'm going to rest for at least a week then start on the things I need for my trip ????Thanks everyone you helped without knowing!

Surgery FInally Paid for.. Tummy Tuck & Lipo

This has definitely been a journey however I will say trust God's timing... Originally i was going to the Dominican for my procedure I had to cancel due to me loosing an important person in my life.. At the end it was for the best see I was so obessed with the scuplting that I failed to factor in my mild case of sleep apnea. If something happened during the surgery what would have happened to me, yes I know things happen amywhere and that was my mindset when I was planning my trip but let's be for real I prefer to be here in the event there is an emergency. At first I didn't understand why I mean I was literally on the HWY headed to the airport and got the call I never seen coming... I remember me saying the only thing that will stop me from getting on that plane is a life or death situation & that's exactly what happened unfortunately... After being supportive & grieving I started my research over I knew I wasn't going to the DR that entire concept went out the window for one it took me along time to research and find my doctor there and although she offered her condolence she was booked till September and in mind I couldn't wait that long still not factoring in the apnea.. yet I secretly wondered why & I'm sorry I'm a firm believer in the higher power so I asked seeked my answer and it was granted.. anywho my friend went without and she is slayed ladies I will never knock the DR for surgery if you're healthy with no risk by all means do you.... Okay that was May moving right along to my consultations Davoudi or Alderman I've always been a fan of Dr, Davouldi's work however his quote was definitely going to break me and I'm not with that life... Keep in mind I was headed to the DR with 6K then we go to 15K I'm not going to lie if I was balling like that I would have gave him every penny :) then there's Dr. Alderman she is very sweet personable respond to you via email or phone unfortunately her staff sent me looking for another Doctor I hate a lack of service one of the coordinators & nurse caused confusion which sent me to Dr. Song he was thorough in our consultation he was honest with expectations and very mild manner he wasn't has personable as Alderman but I didn't expect himto be men are different from woman.... Due to my Apnea he moved my procedure to the hospital just as a precaution.. He agreed with me regarding the arnica tablets I let him know I bruise easily.. I have less than a week I will have the fat removed from abdomen & let's just say I can't wait finally doing something for me!!!

Surgery is less than 72 hrs.... Bromelain?

Hi RS family have anyone used Bromelain to assist with the healing process? I want to purchase anything I can to aid in my healing..

Today is the DAY!!!!

I'm up & ready... not anxious just ready and maybe that's because I feel like it should have been done nonetheless I'm going with a positive mindset asking for prayers for a successeful surgery....

Day 4 Post op

Everything is going well hoping both drains will be removed by Monday.,. For I can try to get in my bed the recliner is doable just prefer my bed! Pain is minimal been walking on my own since day 2..… just taking one day at a time BTW I took a sneak peak at my arms ???? pictures coming soon.,

Post Op day 4 Constipation!!

Constipation hell.. Praying for a movement 2morrow I've taken 2 duclolax drank some pineapple nothing..... Also I tried updating my original post location. I end up selecting a doctor here in the U.S. Dr. Song he was great I'm off my pain meds taking Tylenol for now so far so good!

I recently had a tummy tuck, lipo of back & arms...

I recently had a tummy tuck, lipo of back & arms... Currently I'm 5 days post op & day 4 was the worst due to constipation which just passed..... THANK GOD! Also I took a sneak peak no bandge removed but I finally took an interest in the outcome, swollen on right but cheek, bruised on left side. I had bromelian to take with arnica to help with the bruising but I couldn't take another pill hopefully on my initial post op appointment he will grant permission to treat... Other than that I feel okay not 100% self but okay stop pain pills day 4 finished antibiotics therefore only taking Tylenol however I'm not going to lie on Monday popping a pain pill for one I have to do a flight a stairs plus praying these drains come out.... As of now no complaints will post pictures soon

This freaking binder....

Feeling well my pain is actually from the binder can't wait to see my doc 2morrow for adjustments.... I know I'm only 6 days post op but do anyone have any recommendations on super food to boost my energy I'm moving around but become short of breath fast, I know patience is key but anything extra will help ????

Follow up appointment....

So yesterday made it a week post op I woke up excited ready to get my tubes out however doc only removed one which I felt that was going to be the case besides I understand safety precautions.. I was told I'm healing well come back next week to remove the other drain.... I cannot believe I haven't looked at my stomach, anyone else go through this? I just knew yesterday I was going to be snapping pics but I have to admit they wrapped my binder so tight with so much tape I just wanted to be free it was so tender yes my skin is beyond sensitive... Well I've been cleared for showers going to find me a shower seat I don't want to rush nor get exhausted so a shower seat is warranted hopefully pics this week... ????

Excited had my 2 post op spot!

Yesterday I went to the doctors doing well with healing.... We will start treating my scar next week which BTW is low & very thin ???? still some swelling but that is expected... I can honestly say although its only been 2 weeks I'm glad I made the decision & glad I rented the recliner for a month instead of 2 weeks body still can't adjust to the bed as of yet... Here's a before and after.. I have to do side angles for after soon

3 weeks post op....

I'm healing well... Belly button is forming better than I expected and today I received my first lymphatic massage it was very comfortable I will be going again next week... Also I started wearing my faja today.... Loving my results no regrets thus far!

It's been month...

Today makes 4 weeks post op... I'm feeling good I started treating my scar last week & back in my bed I can honestly say I'm satisfied and looking forward to the final results...
