Phase II: Getting Arms High and Tight - Southlake, TX

Lost weight: ~100#. Tall: 5'11. Large framed. I'm an anomaly amongst women; a freak and I love it! :) Tummy Tuck in 2013. Phase II=Breasts, Arms, and more lipo. Breast lift/augment is under separate review. This review is specific to the arms. Cost associated with this review is estimated portion for the arms; cost savings by combining procedures. Decided to stay with Dr. Obaid; he rocked my... READ MORE

5'11", BL/BA, 750cc Mentor HP- Southlake, TX

Time to start my review. Lost nearly 100#. Tummy Tuck in 2013. Now on to boobs. Getting arms lifted in same procedure, but separate review for that part. Cost tied to this review is estimated portion for tits; total is ~$17k, but that includes some lipo, arm lift, and breast lift/ augment. Trust Dr. Obaid, so decided to come back to him for this phase. Difficult and frustrating deciding what... READ MORE

Getting Butt Implants After Weight Loss: A New Journey

Well, I'm officially scheduled for my next procedure come this October, so I thought I should start my blog. Yes, it's a tad early (6 mos away), but I wanted to be proactive this round! I debated which community to post this to, because I'm getting a lot of work done. I just had a tummy tuck and some lipo done Feb 27th. Phase 2 will be a butt/ outer thigh / breast lift, along with both butt... READ MORE

From 267 to 170....with Medifast

Hi all. Just heard about this forum and wanted share my story in brief. Well, where to start? Always battled with weight. 8.9 lbs when born! I'm 37 now. Three years ago I was at my heaviest (267) and hit the end of my rope. I was always tired, got the eye rolls when I boarded planes, couldn't find clothes anywhere but Lane Bryant, and zero social life. Maybe someone here can relate? Anyhow, it... READ MORE

Life Changing-Southlake, TX

I had both a tummy tuck and tumescent liposuction of my love handles, inner, and outer thighs on Feb 27, 2013. The doctor's office is located on the same campus as the hospital, which is fantastic. The surgical team and hospital staff were warm and friendly, as well as professional and squared away. The staff that work in the doctor's office are all super inviting, responsive, and approachable... READ MORE

You are sooo sweet! :0) Thank you!! My mom thinks they are "Huge", lol, but I think they fit me well. READ COMMENT

Thanks! I know, I know...I am WAY behind. :-) I'm very happy and healing well. The 750's are big, but not outrageous (at least i don't think so). Still getting used to them a bit though, like hitting them on doors or bumping them on... READ COMMENT

Glad that the reviews have helped. Congratulations on making it through your surgery and hope you continue to heal well. :) I'll have to post an update soon. It's been way too long since my last one. I'm pretty well healed all in all.... READ COMMENT
