I had a pretty bad experience with Dr. Lawrence...

I had a pretty bad experience with Dr. Lawrence Foster from Tahoe CA I am so thankful that I am going to be able to be fixed by Dr. Carmina Cardenas I have received my quote from her tt revision, muscle repair, lipoprotein to upper and lower back, fat transfer to my booty, 7 day stay at the recovery house 24hr nurse care along with doctor drop in and a 1 day extra complimentary stay, pain pump, meds and compression garment $7100 hope I remembered everything on there lol, looking to get it done on July 28, 2015 anyone else going around that day? I would love to hear anyone's feedback of your experience on your surgeries thank you!



My breast are Mentor smooth round moderate plus profile saline above the muscle they weren't supposed to be a triple D they were supposed to be double D but I'm thankful they aren't messed up like my tummy eventually I will be getting them fixed to a double D but for now my main concentration is my revision tummy tuck that's going to be done by Dr. Cardenas along with some other goodies :-)


I'm going to be buying a booty buddy pillow has anyone on here used one for your BBL? I heard it helps out alot!


I'm wanting to schedule a date for the end of June or sometime in July 2015 for my surgeries and would love to buddy up with someone for the discount that Dr. Cardenas gives for us scheduling on the same day, please let me know if you are interested (serious people only) thank you :-)


Got my buddy bought my cute little boppy our date is scheduled! June 12th ==> my goodness I'm super STOKED, ANXIOUS AND NERVOUS!

**Ok deposit is paid flight is booked :-) question for the Cardenas dolls**

when we check in the night prior to surgery what all is done?? Also the day of surgery after doc is done do we stay there for the night or taken back to recovery home? Any other info that may help greatly appreciated ;-)


SUPER EXCITED EXACTLY 1 MONTH!!!!! time is flying by before I know it June 12th with be here and Sandii08 and I will be getting our surgeries done :-) I am super thankful to be having a buddy nothing like being able to heal with someone who's pretty much having the same thing as me, someone to talk to and laugh with ==>of course after at least 3 days haha if we can hang not laughing before lol!!!! Anyone recently have surgery with Dr. Carmina Cardenas that would love to share your experience we are all eyes :-)


Ok ladies I had a tt and breast Aug May of 2014 which that doc really screwed me up you may see pics of me on my old profile Unhappy Female, well anyways my feeling of swelling barely went away like 2 months ago from him...now I will be going for a revision with Dr. Cardenas which I'm thankful that she WILL be able to fix me :-) my question for you all is how long does one stay with swelling from a doc that knows what the heck they are doing??? I'm really dreading the swelling!

** Why are almost all patients getting told to get a circumferential? **

I've been researching Dr. Cardenas since 2012 from my old profile to my new one and most of her patients are getting told to get a circumferential skinny or bigger what's the reason? Cause I am trying to avoid that.

**Tips needed ===> Hemo**

How can I get my iron high I've been taking blood builders from GNC for a couple days now in the morning and at night I wanna get it up there before surgery on the 12th! Help!!!!

*** 9 days ***

I have so many mixed feelings going through me right now with the 12th being right around the corner... but my main is leaving my kids I've never been away from them, so it's really starting to eat me up inside they are my world I love my kids god please be with me these days are going to go by super fast...

(((( 8 days till take off ))))) Cardenas here we come!!!!

Starting to pack my bag went and bought a few things, just need a couple more things and I'll be ready, not going to over do it on taking things I really won't need :-) my goodness it's right around the corner can't believe it!!!!! Anyone going to be there between the 11th and 20th of June????


Can all of you who have already had surgery with Cardenas share about how long did you last with swelling the major part of it and then the very minimal part of the swelling. Thank you!!!!
