44yo First-time "Free" Botox - Pasadena, CA

I'm an RS vet migrating over from the MM site - no prep here other than reading some scary "not worth it" botox stories. Geez, talk about making a simple procedure into a nightmare-ish decision! I've briefly read about the headaches, paralysis, facial dents, ptosis, asymmetry, cruella brows, milia, lash loss ...aiyayay! My MM came with free botox so I'm going to be the 1st-timer "lab rat"...

43yo MM - BA/TT/UH/DR/Lipo - 2014 Summer for CHANGE!! - Los Angeles, CA

School year is over, kids are in summer school, and I'm cleaning the house and prepping for a mm 8/4/14... send advice, tips, supply lists, expectations, b&a photos... Interviewed 3 doctors, friends with experience, and read a lot of online material. Feeling very anxious, excited, nervous, and unsure... 39 days until the BIG day and looking forward to a whole new "me". As others RSers... READ MORE

I've had these brown marks on my mid-section post-TT (8/4/14). I'm thinking they were caused by the very tight constricting CG and the tubing from the OnQ pain pump catheters... READ MORE

Anyone post-op who's been working out to maintain BEST results - and achieved it??

I hate working out.  In fact, I think I'm allergic.  I don't like gyms, I don't like running, I don't even like sweating... Not complaining or whining - it's just not... READ MORE

Hey Anna banana!!! I just thought I'd say HI!!! I'm hardly NEVER on anymore - hahahaha... and in my old age, can't remember people's sn's anymore but I remember yours (ok, after 3 tries) and just wanted to say you still look FABulous... READ COMMENT

Yes, take off the dressings that are removable. You should have some plastic steri-strip on some that will not come off in water - no worries. Take everything else off for laundry. Hang your drain bulbs on a lanyard so they don't tug.... READ COMMENT

Have your first shower after you take your pain pump out. You'll feel better. The warm water relaxes all the kinks. Gives you a chance to wash your supports and bandages too. :) READ COMMENT

Hmm... sometimes I wonder if Sarah had anything done in order to say what you really need PO. From experience and now almost 2yrs PO, I'd say there are things you need PO, especially immediately after PO, but I'd definitely shorten MY... READ COMMENT

Hi Espy!! I found you! I haven't been on RS since maybe my 1yr PO... can't remember. But now I'm 45 and old age is kickin' in! :p Texting is much easier though because RS takes me forever to load. I just looked up some of my old... READ COMMENT
