50 and Trying to Be Fab.... - Miami, FL

I have been back and forth and forth and back on...

I have been back and forth and forth and back on the subject of having a Tummy Tuck. I have finally got up the nerve to get it done. After extensive research. I will be having my my surgery in Miami in 2017 with Dr. Orlando Llorente. I paid my deposit and I am now in the process of selecting a date. I love this site and have really got some very much needed information from here. I am 50 years old 5-7 and 211 lbs. Dr wants me to try to lose 15 lbs before surgery. I'm probably more than likely going to schedule in August. Can't wait to be a Llorente doll.

Pitiful Pictures uuggghhhhhh

Forgive me..I am very new to this whole process and not sure how to upload pictures..ill try to show the ugly before pictures.......

I've settled on a date for my life changing surgery

I spoke to Elana today and the date is set. I will be going to Miami on May 01, 2017. And having surgery on May 02, 2017. I am ready to take charge of my life and get this done. Can't wait to be a Llorente Doll.

It was suggested that I lose 15 lbs.........

Ok so my date is May 2, 2017 with Dr. Llorente in Miami. I have paid the deposit and I have the rest of the money in my savings. I'm so excited I don't know what to do. I have started my healthy eating and I joined A Cross Fit gym. It's tough but necessary. I'm trying to have my body in the best shape that it can be before this surgery.

Can hardly wait!!!!!!!!!!

I'm just 49 days away.........I'm soooo anxious and just ready for a brand new me...I go to Miami on the 1st of May.......TT with MR and lipo is May 2, 2017....will post before pictures a couple of weeks before I leave.

Its almost Time!!!!! 17 days to go

Sooooo. I got a call from Jennifer today and she received my Labs and EKG plus chest X-ray today. Now keep in mind My doctors office supposedly faxed this information to New Life several times. Finally I asked for a copy and brought the stuff to work and scanned it to them. Nonetheless they got it immediately. Anywho I'm pretty much cleared. Only Mr. Doctor forgot the APTT test. My doctor is out for the Good Friday/Easter Holiday. So I have to get myself down to him Monday to have him order the test. Now my nerves are starting to set in. I have been preparing since September of 2016. The time is really near. I have been working out and trying my best best best. Did I SAY BEST TO EAT HEALTHY. I have lost a total of 21 lbs. I'm just trying to keep it off. Any way I have my bags packed and I should be making my final payment next Wednesday. Ill update with pictures later Dolls. Happy Thursday

FINALLY IM HERE AT NEW LIFE PLASTIC SURGERY..

The facility is very clean. But for some reason it's full as heck....There are ladies EVERYWHERE. HOPE AND PRAY THAT IM NOT HERE ALL DAY LONG. I FLEW IN FROM CHICAGO OHARE. MY FLIGHT LEFT AT 5:30am. I've been up since 1:45am. I'm exhausted as heck. I'll update once I get to the recovery house...

Dr. Llorente...............Best Doctor Ever!!!!

All I have to say is DR. Llorente is an amazing Dr. he did my tummy tuck with MR and Lipo. I'm 11 days Post Op. I am extremely swollen but can definitely see the difference...today was actually the first day that I saw a significant difference. Early this morning when I first got up and took off this most uncomfortable garment In the whole entire world! I could actually see a bigggggggg difference. I'm having trouble posting pictures...I'll post later....Besides that I can't say enough about Dr. Llorente. He is amazing..
I stayed at Anita's Recovery house and it was great. Nice and clean and TIA WAS SO SPOT ON. She came running whenever we called. Right after surgery she fed me soup. The food was good also. If it's something that you want, all you have to do is ask for it, they will go get it. Well that's all for now. I'll try getting the pictures attached later. Going to take a nap now...

Just a few after pics.......

This swelling is unreal.......totally ridiculous!!!!!

The dreaded faja!!

Yesterday my pcp took out the drains and I was able to shower.....My hubby is the greatest.. He totally gave me this shower for about 30 mins. It just felt soooo good.. then we tackled the FAJA......After 20 mins or so, we got the faja on....whew!
