So I'm scheduled for March 14, 2014 at Vanity...
So I'm scheduled for March 14, 2014 at Vanity Cosmetics in miami. I'm not sure how I feel about the office. I can never get a straight answer on ANYTHING. My coordinator is Anna. I can tell that I get on her nerves but, oh well, this is my money and my body and I'll call all day everyday if I choose. So far, I'm not impressed with the scheduling process thus far. I paid half in order to get scheduled but now I I'm told I won't have a scheduled time until the day before my procedure. I've request to speak with Dr. Fisher because Anna is just not giving up the information I need, she's all about the money, that's her only true concern. Oh well, I'll see if he calls.
Purchased all of my pre op items....
I went out today and purchased all of the items I'll need postoperative. I'm excited by very nervous at the same time. I was told to lose 8 lbs and so far I'm down 2lbs. I'm gonna do my best to get these last 6 off within the next 3 weeks. Hotel is booked, I'll be there for 8 nights, Anna said I only had to stay for 7. I already have my 4 weeks off at work, I'm just ready to get it done. I know Dr. Fisher is going to do an excellent job. I stalk him on RS day and night and I look at his pics over and over and over........ and over again! I'm very confident that I've picked the best of the best. My 3 week count down begins now.
Booked myself at a nice resort for my post op stay. Got myself a pretty good price on priceline.com. so ready to get this done. Dr. Fisher request I lose 8 l bs, I'm down 2 but, in all honesty, I think I probably gained 5 prior to him telling me to Lose 8, lol. Oh well, I'm gonna shoot for a total of 10 to 15lbs. We'll see what happens. I wonder if he refuse if I don't lose the weight? That's a bit stressful to think about but I'm just gonna keep pushing forward.
Still can't get the info I've requested.... ugh!
Very frustrated. I've been asking Anna, my voordinator, for the longest to tell me what type of garment Dr fisher likes to use so that I can pre purchase. I still have not received the information. Does anybody know what he used for tummy tuck? I want to change my coordinator, Anna really grinds my gears. She such a pain in my....
What garment to buy?
What garment does Dr. Fisher typically use after tummy tuck?
Still counting down the days. Bags packed and ready to go....
well, Vanity messed up everything... On to the next!
Scheduled with Dr. Ortega. Hopefully no other issues come up. I'm very nervous at this point.
Vanity Cosmetics dropped the ball!
Ok, here's the low down. I'm scheduled, or I WAS scheduled, for March 14. Got a call last week from Anna stating I had to lose 8 lbs. I asked for the exact weight range Dr Fisher wants me at. Took over a week to get the info and lots of nagging. I was told that I'm 208 and Dr wants me under 200. I've never ed weighed 200 lbs in life. I told Anna that's incorrect t, I weight 173. Finally got a call back today from Anna saying that I need to lose 30 lbs! I'm scheduled for my TT in 2 weeks!!!!!!!! WTF! CLEARLY, I will not be getting my surgery at Vanity. I have already book my room based off of their date given and the time frame for which they say I had to stay, already took off work.... This is a disaster!!!!!! I have a few days to try to figure something out. Hotel is non refundable, that almost $1000!!!! I'm TICKED to say the least. Spoke with Dr. ORTEGA office. I'm hoping he's able to do it for me. I hate to do things last minute. I knew this was going to happen, they are too unorganized at Vanity, nobody knows what the heck is going on and they NEVER allow you to speak with the Dr. So sad. I will never Recommend them..... ever!
Me now. I don't need to lose 30 lbs!
I don't think I need to lose 30lbd, I'll look like a crack head if i do! THICK IS IN AND I LOVE ME! I just want my muscles repaired via TT... am i asking too much?
Me now, 2 weeks pre op...
I don't think i need to lose 30 lbs. I'll look like a crackhead! Thick is in and I love my curves! Can't figure out why Dr Fisher told me to lose 30 lbs, and it's only 2 weeks left before my scheduled surgery!
Now I m scheduled with Dr. Salas. Anyone have pics of his tummy tucks?
Ok. So all Vanity offered me was to schedule me with Dr. Salas. I'm not taking anything away from him and I pray he does a great tummy tuck but that is not a good resolution to the problem. I feel forced to go with someone I have no info on. I didn't research him for the past 2 months like I did Fisher. I can't really find any tummy tuck pics but he does great bbl. Am I being unreasonable? I feel I should be able to get a second procedure go half price. I think that Is a fair offer. What do you all think? I spoke with Claudia who claims to be the office Manager but I spoke with her last week and she told me she was the financial manager and makes sure the money is right.... which is it? Does anyone know who the real office manager is? They have literally stressed me the hell out!
Anyone got I put on Dr Salas?
Looking to get some input on Dr. SALAS. I'm Torn between Salas and Ortega. Has anyone had a TT worth him?
Dr. Salas or Dr. Mel Ortega????
So I need to know who is the better choice. Dr. Salas or Dr. Ortega. I'm up on the air on which to go with and I have to decide ASAP! HEEELLLLPPP!!!!! I'm scheduled with Salas but can't find many TT pics, I see a lot of bbl pics but I'm not getting that. Dr. Ortega has lots of TT pics but I'm not just blown away by what I see.... any input anyone?
Breast Lift and TT with Dr. Salas!!!!!
So. After all of my ups and downs my appt is actually secured with Salas, I've even added a breast lift to go along with my TT!!!!! Hotel booked, supplies purchased and packed, labs done, already on leave from work! I'm ready! Let's do this Dr. Salas!!!!! I know he's going to do great. I'll post more pics soon including the facility, hotel, and daily post op pics.
3 days left, I'm getting anxious!
So I'm all packed up and ready to go. Added a breast lift to my list. I'm so excited to get this done. I'll be away from my daughter for 10 dsys, that sucks, bur she's 17 and my mom won't let anything happen to her. In a few days I'll be a new woman!
met With Dr. Salas and I couldn't be happier?
Met Dr Salas yesterday, quite the handsome fella. We went over everything and I feel very confident that he will do an awesome job. Today is surgery day, I can't seem to sleep! This is the day I've been waiting for! Hours away from the new me?
10 po feeling a lot better
Woke up this morning and the pain is very bareable. Going for my 1st post op visit in a couple of hours and I can't wait to get my first actual view of my new body? I'll post pics soon.
1 dpo love my results!
Pics coming soon, Dr Salas ROCKS!
Swelling going down. I'm loving my results?
Living my results. Swelling had been awful since having my tubes removed but I know it'll get better.
worried about my belly button. ..
I've been trying to research to see if this is normal for my belly button to look so strange. I know it's not infected but it still doesn't look right. Maybe I'm just overthinking it...
