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

I wanted to look better and feel better about myself. I wanted my clothes to fit better. Diet and exercise were not doing it alone. I needed a little help so I looked for it and I found it. Dr. Smith is absolutely wonderful!! Very skilled and he has a great bedside manner. I was really impressed with him and his staff.

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

The family members and friends that I told, were all excited for me. They can't wait to see me now that I have been healing for a several weeks.

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

It was very easy. I went online and put in what I wanted and 1800mySurgeon came up and I found a surgeon not too far from my home.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I had a tummy tuck, liposuction, chin reconstruction and facial implants. The surgery went very well and recovery is coming along nicely.

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

It is not my place to give advice to someone considering having the same surgery I did. Everyone is different. The consultation is very important. You can explain to the Doctor exactly what kind of result you are looking for and then you and the Doctor can both decide what is best for you.

How do you feel about your result?

So far, excellent! And getting better every day. The key word for something like this is patience. It takes time to heal.
