I was intially going to to my procedure In L.A I met with a couple of docs there. My husband however convinced me that even though it might be less expensive the trouble to go there and stay for recovery might not be worth it , so he said met with a dr in the Bay Area just to see. I found Dr. Parhiscar and I'm so glad I did. He is originally from NY but is here now. I had my consult and will be putting my deposit down on Monday. Tummy tuck, bbl, Lipo of back. Can't wait. So far everything has ran smoothly Melinda his patient care coordinator is awesome. I love his results he gives patience. The best part is his prices! Cant wait for my waist to be snatched and have more booty!
Gave my deposit ahhhhhh it's happening!! Nervous anxious scared lol
28 days to go can't wait! Getting anxious. Bought : make me heal pre and post operative vitamins. The reviews were great and people swear by them.
Pre op done!
Yesterday was my pre op. I decided I want to do my tummy tuck and Lipo of flanks for now. That has always been my insecurity (my stomach) I really like Dr P. He is very nice easy to talk too. Never pushy. I feel very confident in him. He said my waist will go significantly in and will make hips appear as if there wider. My hips are not wide at all. I'm so excited. He gave me my rx for my my pain medicine. He explained everything to me. I paid more than half of my surgery. Only 2000 left on the balance which i pay on the day of surgery. I have to show up at 8am on the 28th!
Some old pics
Here are pics of me when I would lose weight but still had a pooch when I let my stomach out. I had to keep my stomach sucked in at all times.
I had a 9 pound boy then 8 pound boy again.
Today is the day!

Day of treatment
Surgery went well. Dr p is the bomb! Little drowsy now will update later
Day 3 update
Today was Bette than yesterday. I'm in pain back and I haven't went to the bathroom. My stomach is swollen and itchy. My drains are less than 5 ml each. I applaud the same Woman who combine there procedures. I'm so happy I didn't do my butt. I would be even more uncomfortable and at some point gave up trying to be on my side and just laid on my back. I haven't seen my stomach or taken my garment off.
Went to see my doc today. He took my drains out. Not painful just a little uncomfortable. He took this pic and this is my first time seeing my stomach. All I can say is snatched!!yas bish yas!!! That stomach is everything!! I see him in two weeks.
Post op blues
Today was a bad day a lot of crying, regret and just an overall bad day. Woke up today in pain. I tried to get comfortable nothing was helping. Maybe it was frustration but I ended up crying feeling like why did I do this. I try to stay active and being in bed seeing my kids need a bath and not be able to is so hard. There dad is like I'll do it later. It's annoying depending on someone else. I hate this feeling. I don't think what I'm going through is worth this. So painful and who knows how much longer I will go thru this. I took my garment off to wash. It was like an hour , that was a mistake I ended up in more pain. As soon as I put it on I felt much better. I'm grumpy and just over this! Anyone else go through this? I don't know what will make me feel better.
Today was better.
I feel better today. I'm still taking my meds I'm in pain still without it. I took my first shower it was lovely. I was up more. I get tired quickly. My husband took this pic after my shower and I was in shock! It looks good I haven't seen my stomach like that since before kids. I like my belly button.
10 days post op
Feeling good. My insition is kind of itchy. I'm walking around more. I get tired and have to sit after anwhile. No more pain meds.
