22 Year Old Ready to Be SNATCHED - Miami, FL

Hello ladies, I'm Yasmine I am 22 years. At the age of 20 years old I underwent the gastric sleeve procedure which is a form of bariatric surgery on 2/23/2015. I started out at 260lbs at 5'3 and I am currently 156lbs and ready to start the second phase of my journey with Dr. Mel Ortega. On 6/13/17 I will be getting an extended tummy tuck and saline implants I am kind of undecided on the size though ! I'm very excited and can use all the knowledge I can get :)

Just some wish pics

Currently

I've been exercising regularly still and will continue to until surgery. I know at this point my belly is mostly skin but I want to have as little fat as possible for Dr. Ortega to work with. I'm excited I can't even begin to fathom how I'll look after my extended TT

What do you think ?!

Hey ladies as you know weight loss takes a toll on the girl that's why I'm getting saline implants when I get my breast aug but I was thinking could I just get away with getting implants I know I want between 400-500cc moderate profile but do you think I'll need a lift as well ?!

Current state

Hey ladies still waiting patiently for surgery day ! Just thought I'd show how much skin I'm actually dealing with after 100+lbs of weight loss. The thought of how tiny I'll be once it's gone excites me !!!!

Checking in

Just some more before pics to document. I am currently 154lbs after being plateaud for about 6 months at 157-159lbs. My goal is 140lbs so hopefully I can make it to that by June ! Also I got my lab work back all my levels were fine and my hemo was 12.3 which I was worried about. I also been taking a blood builder to keep my levels up !

So frustrated !

So ladies so far my experience with spectrum has been a complete headache after they get that deposit they don't want to answer your calls , email you back or anything. My surgical coordinator is Stephanie Luna who is the "head" surgical coordinator so I thought things would be better than the reviews I've seen on other coordinators but no such luck. Yes my surgery is in June but 1 I'm coming out of state and 2 paying out of pocket so I need for shit to be right !!! At first I was just getting an extended TT but then changed my mind and wanted to get a full mommy makeover so I contacted Stephanie about it to get a new contract written up and never heard back. Then on a spectate occasion recently I emailed her again about changing my surgeon to DR Alvarez because Ortega has been having a lot of complications with his dolls lately ( I didn't tell her that part) she didn't reply so I had to DM them on IG to get her to email me back and when she did I'm so many words she tried to say that Alvarez wasn't a good surgeon and that I needed to sleep on it. I told her my mind was made up and I wanted to proceed with Alvarez and she never replied. Also getting the finical department to take your payments is also a damn headache I called to put down $2000 the guy told me to email my card and authorization form.. I did and the money was never touched. I'm just fed up somewhere I'm spending almost 10K I would expect communication whenever I need it but I guess not here. I have been talking to Lena at Dr Alvarez's private practice and I am considering leaving spectrum and just going to Alvarez's private practice instead the only thing really keeping me conflicted is losing some of the $500 deposit but I'll get over it.

I am so ready for this skin to be GONE
