I have finally found a doctor I am comfortable...
I have finally found a doctor I am comfortable with after my debacle last year I have since relocated and found the right guy for the job. I have also lost 40 lbs trying to lose 10 more b4 surgery.
weight: 180 lbs
waist: 39 1/2
This was the first doctor who didn't look at me within the first five and said you need to lose weight then come back. He really went into detail and explained to me why my stomach was protruding even after losing 40 lbs. He asked me to suck my stomach in and said thats not intra abdominal fat your muscles are the problem after having 2 sections with two 8 lb plus boys and 4 other stomach surgeries my stomach muscle have had it. Dr. Hardy took his time and was ready to mark me up to show what he is going to do do to make my pop he told me my butt is fine. He answered all 10 of my most important questions. he really made me feel comfortable and the conversation was not rushed at all so after meeting with 7 other doctors he was the only DR who took the time to really examine me and for that he is my guy.
I booked my surgery today
Pre-op in next Tuesday
Hey ladies my Pre-Op is Tuesday and I'm getting excited I just got my basic supplies for surgery in 12 days I'm also trying to lose these last 10 lbs so I will be doing the master cleanse for the next 10 days leading up to surgery can't weight
Pre-Op went well today
I had my pre-op today with Dr. Hardy I must admit when I got there I was fine I was 15 mins early even though I had to fight traffic. But, I must say when they put me in a room and it was time to sign consent thats when It hit me and I wish I had a friend with me. It took me forever to sign all the paper work and consent forms I got nauseous and had to take several deep breaths just to get through it. I manage to get everything signed then it was time to try on the garment that they will be providing me and got to try out some new boobies then it was picture time of the old me. I must say Dr. Hardy really calmed my nerves I kept asking him had I lost enough weight he said yes, you have done the hard work now its time for me to make your body pop lol! he told me to suck in my stomach again to reassure me that I am going to be fine once he tighten the muscles he then measured my breast and went on ahead to explain the total procedure which is tummy tuck, lipo, breast lift, and breast augmentation surgery day is Sept 13, arrival time is at 10am and surgery is at 11am can't wait.
my weight today: 174.5
My natural waist: 35
my belly button waist: 37.5
hips: 40 which is fine with me I will continue to eat right and walk at least 4 miles a day up until surgery to see if I can get down just a lil bit more before Tuesday.
Today is the day!!

Day of treatment
Patient they had lol! Also the most excited and nervous ha e me a Valium to calm my nerves lol! Not to much longer and I'll be be seeing u guys in the flat side
Feeling pretty good
Loving my results I have come along way. My PS gave me a garment VS a binder I'm wrapped with an ace bandage garment needed to be washed here is a b4 and after
With all the swelling and drains in it was rough I know I look a lil odd and was a bit concerned since I didn't looked like everyone else does in there pics but if u look at my before pics I look so much better and with time it's only going to get better so I'm pretty satisfied
Drains came out yesterday and so did the medical tape from my scare looking much better I do have 3 small areas on my incision that's still healing but the cut is actually where my c-section scare is so its pretty low happy about that and I got a belly button ?? I'm finally starting to take shape yayyyyy so yes this apple chick finally got a waist and no more looking PREGOooooo! I still have a lil swelling I wear my garment 24/7 and when I'm not in my garment I'm wrapped with a ace bandage till my garment dries ooh and can't forget my boobies the right one is still a lil high but they are starting to settle I where a band during the day to help with the process and at night a 15 min massage couldn't be happier jus taking it day by day
My results improve every week I'm happy with my results thus far patience is the key.
