Tornambe Doll - Long Island City, NY

I had a consult with Dr. Desai and was all set for surgery then I get a call stating he left and pick another Dr. I was not upset just shocked since it was a week or so before , out of the two that were left I could not find anything on one of the Doctors therefore I did not choose him. I said to myself I will meet the one that was left if I am not comfortable I will go elsewhere, well I felt comfort instantly Dr Tornambe is very kind, nurturing and real, He will give you real expectations and not just what you want to hear, after I met him I started to get very excited about my surgery something i did not feel with the first Doctor i had a consult with. The place is very clean (the office itself is very pretty and comfortable), everyone from Doctor, Anesthetist, Nurse was very attentive and reassuring, (I was scared to death) I went to operating room and then the next thing you know the nurse was waking me up. That pain is real lort. I was the first appointment that day and very happy about that. I only told two people about my surgery and one of them brought me to and from surgery and the day after I thank god for her because I thought I could just jump in a cab and go home not! I being home was not bad at all I stay on my stomach and dranked mostly . I went to work 11 days later I used a soft blanket rolled it under my thighs I been sitting like that every since the boppy pillow was too big and therefore hurts. I made something for the car too the boppy pillow was so big it made me taller and I am already tall so I looked and felt like the nutty professor with my head smashed in the roof of the car like that so that did not work. Once I got thru the first week at work it was easier from there the only thing now is everyone stares at me when I walk by no one knows about my surgery I took vacation from work and as far as they know I was going to the Bahamas they are probably wondering what coconut water I dranked to make my butt swell so they can have some.

Lots of swelling and bruises not that bad tho

5 days post op

This is right before I had stitches removed also how I look after a very hot shower I seem to swell up, in my red night gown I have on faja and I wake up flat all over except for he bootay of course that piece sticking out in the back is the lumber piece it wouldn't stay in place because my swelling would go down and it would slip down to butt area I am loving the V right above my butt

11 days post op back to work

These are the only 2 pants I can fit.

11 days post developed some complications

So I started to get blisters on my skin one right cheek very smalls, two on the left cheek and one of them large, I started wearing panties under my faja to protect the skin from faja and I covered ten back lumbar piece with gauges so it does not touch my skin I kept slipping down I also brought a size smaller faja so it will fit snug. I have not gotten any more blisters since knock on wood. The last bliser was scary because it turned black and I was afraid it would die, however it crusted up nicely and fell off (I didn't put anything on it as far as cream and oniment ) I just put gauges on it to protect it and let it dry on it's on.

I am very proud to be a "Tornambe Doll" He did not give me the look of my wish pictures, he gave me a look of my own and a GREAT one!!!!!! I can now be someone else wish picture. I am glad I did not run to DR I am from NY and it is time to put NY on the map we have great PS here and you absolutely do not have to run to DR for a great job done. I am so happy , I can't stop looking in the mirror. Dr. Tornambe is an artist not just a surgeon
