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

Because i had been wanting to do it for a couple years but i was scared.I didn't know all the risks of doing the surgery and the exact results. I also wanted to find the best price but also the best surgean possible. After i consulted with my doctor i gained confidence and decided i was going to do it.

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

At first it was difficult for them and for me. After the first few days of surgery i wasn't able to do much but stay in bed so they had to help me with everything. They knew it was going to be hard but they supported whatever decition i wanted 2 make.

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

Since i was scared i really wanted to find the best surgeon available. 1800MySurgeon allowed me to do that. After i learned about the surgeon i gained confidence and wasn't scared as much.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

At first the recovery is slow. I had to stay in bed for a few days, not really able to do much, but after i recovered and gained more mobility. I took my medication as advised and didn't expirience much pain.

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

Go for it!!! Its really worth the time. Take the propper steps of preparing ahead of time. Mot just you but your whole family because it's really important that they support you. They will have to help you through it but in the end it's woth it

How do you feel about your result?

The result was spectacular! Im more than satisfied with the results. I should've done this sooner but i needed time to prepare. But with propper preparation, support from family, and a good surgeon it's all worth it.
