Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

I was uncomfortable with the size of my arms. I was embarrassed with children saying I had big muscles when it was really fat. I talked to several doctors but decided on Dr. Mizuguchi because he showed interest and compassion for what I was going through. He didn't make me feel as though I should be ashamed.

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

They supported me 100%. My husband said he loved me just as I was and so did my friends. But I knew they were OK with me as me but I wasn't satisfied with me.

How did 1800MySurgeon help you through the process of finding a qualified plastic surgeon?

1800mySurgeon did research and found Dr. Mizuguchi for me. He is a great surgeon and 1800mySurgeon gave me his number and gave me background information on him also.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

It was fast. I liked it because I didn't have to wait for hours in the hospital. They took me right in when it was my time and got right to the surgery. My recovery was great. My nurse gave me a ginger ale when I woke up. They knew that I always got kind of sick with my hernia so they took really good care of me.

What advice would you give to another person considering your same procedure?

Do research and go to Calabrace. They will take care of you. But you have to feel comfortable with your surgeon - don't be afraid to ask questions.

How do you feel about your result?

I like it . I am sure I will love it when the swelling goes down. My arms feel so much better and my clothes feel so much better!
