Thanks Dr. Shaddix for Helping Me Transfrom from a Coke Can to a Coke Bottle!! - Pensacola, FL

I've been researching the procedure for years and...

I've been researching the procedure for years and finally went ahead and worked up the nerve to get it done. I looked into numerous doctors-- both local and not, but upon meeting with Dr. Shaddix, I knew I'd found the doctor for me. I am pretty sure I broke the record for 'most questions asked', yet he never seemed bothered and made it a point to insure that I was well informed and comfortable. He even took the time to go over the details with my husband separately. He also made sure to give me a realistic expectation of the procedure and from that I was able to go into surgery super relaxed and excited! My stomach area is still swollen (to be expected) , but so far I think I'm going to be happy with the results! Recovery wasn't too bad---first few days were a little rough, but after that it got SO much better!

Taking it back to the original goal

I've always been known for my upbeat personality and sense of humor. As long as I can remember my body style has been an insecurity of mine. Prior to the surgery I was extremely top heavy and had narrow hips and NO ASS AT ALL. Like a negative amount. My pants would sag in the back.

Last year I faced a few issues in my personal life---issues that made me look deeply at myself. I wasn't happy. I'd gained weight from 2 pregnancies and had a wrecked my body from a history losing and gaining weight. I no longer felt like myself and I'd given up on 'finding myself'.

An 'opportunity,' to say the least, presented itself and I started to look into plastic surgery. After researching I ended up going with Dr. Shaddix. He listened to what I wanted and helped me to set realistic expectations. Together, we came up with a plan to get me to my goal body. My first surgery was my BBL. I knew going into it, I'd need a tummy tuck, but by doing a BBL first, I could get more fat lipo'd from my stomach, sculpt out a new body shape, and access the far above my belly button, that I wouldn't be able to get during a tummy tuck. I told Dr. Shaddix that I did not want anything conservative. I wanted to finally have the vixen body I'd dreamed. I wanted to stop being cute and be sexy for once. I wanted to find 'me' again.

Dr. Shaddix advised me that after my bbl, I'd have loose skin in my abdomen. He strategically removed as much fat as he could from above my belly button, seeing as the plan was to have a tuck secondary where I could get any additional lower far removed. He also said that if my butt wasn't as big as I wanted, that I could get more fat transferred at the time of my tummy tuck. I'm so happy that I found a doctor that shared my vision and helped me obtain it.
