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

Last year I started exercising and eating healthy and lost quite a bit of weight. My stomach started hanging so low with skin and fat that could not be targeted with exercise. Also, as my thighs got smaller the fat pockets started looking bigger! Not attracted at all!

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

I did not tell anyone except my husband, children and a couple close friends. Those are the only ones that I know would stay positive. I did not tell anyone else until after surgery.

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

Without 1800MySurgeon I would not have found Dr Horn. I live in a different state, therefore the places I was trying was locally, 1800MySurgeon also save me money, because going through them I did not have to pay any consultion fees, which can get expensive and become a waste of money. Especially if you coose not to go with the company.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

Dr Horn made me feel as comfortable as possible. Recovery was hard, but only because I am very independant and I had to depend on others to help me through it.

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

Use 1800MySurgeon, and check around. Do not settle on the first Dr you see. Also, I checked reviews online and BBB (Better Business Bureau). Some Dr offices will give you a list of companies to check out for a medical loan. Check them out too, because some of them have really bad reps!

How do you feel about your result?

My results are great! I am very pleased! My husband loves it even more! The scars are going away and they suggest creams to even out the skin tone from the scars. Still a little swollen, but that takes 4-6 mos to go down. I feel sexier and more confident.
