44 Yr Old Finally Getting Rid of This Gut! Extended Panniculectomy with Lipo to Abdomen, Waist & Buttocks - Lutherville Timonium

Feeling a little scared and excited if that's...

Feeling a little scared and excited if that's possible!! I have 16 days before surgery!!!! I've been wanting to have this done for six years but my husband wasn't on board, finally he says yes!!!!! Had my first consultation with Dr Basner who was AWESOME AMAZING!!!! So let the countdown begin!!!!!!!

14 days to go!!!

Have my very last pre-op appointment on Friday. I had to have several appointments because during the pre op screening they put me on hypertension meds and wanted to make sure they monitored my blood pressure on meds and make sure they were working. Today my pressure was ok 133/84 when I first went it was 144/112 scary!!! So keep the PRAYERS coming that it continues to stay on track!!!

Hello today was indeed a better day!!! It seems as if it is getting easier ok wait it's getting LESS painful everyday. My itching has slowed down a lot, however that swelling is still alive and huge!!! Lol lol baby steps just wanted to uplift someone and let them know that it does get a little less stressful just hang in there and stay positive with lots of happy thoughts!!!!!!

1st pre op visit!

My 1st pre op visit went extremely well!!!! He took out all my drains!!! Yayyyyy he also removed some some staples from my belly button and back. It was a pretty good day!!! He also said I didn't have to wrap with gauze anymore let the healing begin with just the fresh new tape he put on!! On my way to healing ladies!!!! Yayyyyy thanks again for all the love and support from everyone!!! Xxxxoooo

2nd post op appt

This appointment wasn't as good as the first one :( Just a minor bump in the road. I have an infection which Doc and explain its possibility prior to procedure. PRAYING for a speedy recovery. This to shall pass!!! Ok back to happy and positive thoughts! The swelling is going down so that's a plus!!!!

Pulmonary embolism

Hello I've missed you guys terribly!!! I've been a little under the weather. I am in the hospital and have been in here since 9/23/25 with pulmonary embolism. GOD is sooooo good I went to the ER because my legs were swollen and hurting so bad and after spraying arnica on them they felt weird! We went to the ER because I'm thinking I have clots in my legs but once they ran all the test they found the clots in my lungs!!! See how good GOD is that I went for something else and they found something I didn't even have symptoms to!!!!!!! I am coming along I took my last shot of lovenox and they are going to start me on Eliquis and maybe I can even go home tomorrow!!!! Yayyyyyyy

No more horror stories!!

I refuse to put anymore horror stories on this site!!!! I'm going to stay PRAYED UP!!!! I'm only going to put the good stuff up like picks of my new body that I LOVE SOOOOO MUCH!!! :)
Baltimore Plastic Surgeon

I originally went in for a lower body lift he asked me what did that mean to me what areas are important to me. I was impressed I did my research on several Dr's and he was the best choice!! He was very experienced and knowledgeable. He graduated with honors from the University of Penn (my home town) and has been doing this for 19 years he's even done work for ABC!! Dr Basner did a phenomenal job with my procedure!!! I couldn't have asked for a better PS if I designed him myself!! Thanks so much for making me EXTREMELY happy!!!
