Here I am on the count down to my transformation.....
Here I am on the count down to my transformation...I'm super excited, nervous and overall happy I'm actually going through with it. I met with Dr Alavi in March, this was my 2nd consult with a PS, the first one I liked but I just loved how comfortable Dr. A made me feel, his opinion was relieving, turned out I didn't need as much work as the first PS told me :D I'm 34, mother of a beautiful tween girl, a handsome 2yr old lil fella, and my sexy 42 yr hubby. I knew at 25 at some point I would reward myself with a makeover. My first round of consults was back when I was 30, and surprise surprise I found out I was pregnant a month after lol. As 2013 begun I knew this was my year to do it, my man has been totally supportive and excited to see my new boobies of course lol. The best advice I can give anyone contemplating a MM, is first and foremost know that this is for you and you only, I love my body and if I didn't have the means to do it I would still love me with just as many scars and flab lol.... don't let no debbie downers out there talk out of it, trust me you'll be surprised when you mention it to your "close" friends and you get their negative opinions!! do your research and know this is not a walk in the park, get familiar with the procedure, recovery and know exactly what you want...pics pics and more pics :) and if you live in SD see Dr Alavi....you'll be glad you did. Stay tuned for pics!!
