My Oprah Winfrey Dreams

I’ll never forget my best friend Sarah tugging and pulling at my beautiful white sundress as we hurried to get to the dining area on my first cruise. I did not quite understand what she meant while she kept tugging and pulling as if she had seen a ghost.
-“What’s wrong?”, I asked.

As she gawked at the spectacle of my dress she said, “You’re crooked! Your dress looks weird”! That night I learned I had not developed my right breast.

On July, 29, 1981 I had a right breast augmentation and a left breast reduction.

Years have passed, I have had many health issues including five miscarriages and two ectopic pregnancies. Age, illness, weight loss and weight gain has led to sagging, scarring stretch marks and so forth.

At about the age of 40 I decided to deal with all of these issues the best way I could. I tried dieting exercise and leading an overall healthy approach. At the end of the week I would reward myself with what my friends and I called MARGARITA FRIDAYS. My friends and I would sip on our MARGARITAS and gossip, laugh, try to fix the world and of course talk about fad diet on the market.

One fine MARGARITA FRIDAY I came up with what I thought was the perfect solution to all my problems. I turned to my good friend and said, “Martha I need you to write a letter to Oprah Winfrey. You need to tell her you have a great friend with countless personal attributes that is in desperate need of a makeover, plastic surgeries included.”

No Joke! My Oprah Winfrey Dreams have been the topic of conversation for years thereafter always bringing with them a good laugh or two.

I am just hours away from having the first of a couple of surgical procedures. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank, Dr. Sean Simon, Dr. Perri Elizabeth Young and every single person on their staff for bringing me back to good health and last but not least helping me get my OPRAH WINFREY DREAM!

* Dear Dr. Simon, Dr. Young, Elizabeth, Nicole, Miriam, Marisol, Jessie, and Jenny and Alicia,

Words can’t begin to express how excited I am about my surgery.
Just in case I don’t see you or forget on Friday I wanted to let you all know what and amazing group of individuals you all are!
Thank you for putting up with my rollercoaster of emotions this year. I can’t thank you enough.
A big hug for all of you,

Wish me luck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm So Excited !!!!!!


Dearest Jill,
Today makes three weeks since my surgery. I LOOK AMAZING!
I'm so happy to have chosen Dr. Sean Simon.
Words cannot express my gratitude for all they've done have done to change my life.
I've been given a chance to like my body; something I have never known until now. Through the years, I have always felt a deep sense of sadness when I got one look or another. Trust me they came from everywhere. I had one Dr. while I was choosing look at me and say-" As a plastic surgeon and as a man, my professional opinion is that you should the abdominoplasty done first because your stomach looks like a buttocks". This was in Hialeah FL . One of your most popular doctors on on realself told me I did not have much to work with but that he could always try. Therefore I went to see 17 different surgeons and their teams before I chose Dr. Simon. Those that wanted to do my surgery were not so ethical either many of them taking money without caring much about major health issus.
I happened to be very ill when I went to see Dr. Simon. He and his wife Dr. Perry Young told helped me very much. She pulled all my medical history and called me at work one day and said- "Ana are you ok? "
I wanted my surgery so bad I lied as tears rolled down my eyes. She said,-" well I have good news and bad news, .The bad news is there is no plastic surgery the good news is I think I know what's wrong with you."
There began the journey to make me healthy. They had me run some tests to discover that I tumors of my parathyroid. They recommend top surgeons for my condition within my community and throughout the United States.
I chose Dr. John Lew of Sylvester Cancer Treatment Center. On December 3, 2015 at about 9:45AM I surgery to remove two tumors of my parathyroid. That last call I made before going in was dr. Simon and Dr. Young's office. The staff was so kind and supportive. there are simply no words to express my gratitude.
I now enjoy an optimum state of good health and
feel a renewed sense of confidence and a vitality. I never thought I could actually look like a normal woman, but I secretly ached and wished to.

July 1st 2016 was my first procedure Lipo and Brazilian Butt Lift. In a few months I will have my next procedure which will include the removal of a 35 year implant on my right breast, redoing both my breasts and tummy tuck which will remove many of my unsightly scars.
I would so much like for all to be able to share my experiences with all that need excellence to the last detail in their surgical experience.
The only reason I have not posted pictures is because I haven't figured out how just of yet.
I thank you so much for commenting on my post and only ask you help my letter to you reach as many people as possible.
All my love to all REALSELF Dr's users and staff for also having helped me through my journey
