I thought I might as well post being that I stalk this site several times a day. For over a month and a half I have been consumed with this site. I even check updated posts from work; terrible I know. I think it's great that everyone is sharing their stories. As for me, I am 43 and a mother of three (22, 21 & 15) no more babies for me. I am about 5'7 and I weigh about 170. I plan on loosing about 15 pounds by my surgery date. I work out three times a week and I watch what I eat. Although I go to the gym, I DO NOT have an athletics body, lol. More like Sponge Bob, ha! I have had a tummy tuck over 10 years ago, now that I look at it, this TT is a hot mess. Actually it's been a mess for years, but I learned to live with it because I'm the only one who sees it (oh & my honey). I'm just ready for a new look period.
I will be going to Dr P on May 22. I am somewhat nervous but not really. I have seen some of his work and I am quite impressed. I emailed Nadia a few times and she was pretty informative. I live about 40 minutes from San Diego and 1 1/2 hour from TJ. I was there two months ago checking out a doctor with my sister in law. We both got "so-called" consultations. We were in office no more than 10 minutes. He didn't have an assistant, I think we called him on his cell phone. It was actually kind of weird. He just looked us and said yes I can do that and sent us on our way. My sister in law went and did her labs but I decided to investigate him further. Something just didnt seem right. Long story short, I google the doctors name, email address and telephone number and I couldn't find not one review. I needed to at least see some reviews from others. Anyway this is how I stumbled upon this site. I'm happy that I found you guys:) I'm even more happy that I'm not the only 43 year old woman considering this procedure. C Gray I see you girl, lol. I will be getting Lipo to my back, arms, lower and upper tummy, flanks and maybe my inner thighs. Initially I wasn't interested in a BBL, but now I am. I have never had a big butt and I surely don't want one now. But I do want something nice and cute and of course round. I just want something normal looking with a small waist. I will post pictures as soon as I figure out how. Thanks for letting me read all of blogs. My journey begins today;-)
Hello Ladies, I thought I might as well post...
So for some reason I'm thinking of switching...
I spoke with Elizabeth, Dra Duran's assistant......

Benadryl Itching Cream
Dial Anti-Bacterial Soap (I hate dial soap, ugh)

Of course I have my daily hygiene supplies that will be coming along with me(tooth paste, toothbrush, lotion, deodorant, Caress, ie)
I will also be taking maxi dresses, sweats and lots of t-shirts.
Things I have yet to get:

I will also say I have the best roommate, we immediately gelled. She is such a sweet lady and I'm happy that we are rooming together.
Well that's it for now, I will update later if I'm up to it.
Sending up prayers for my roommate and others having surgery today.
