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

I had interviewed two other doctors/facilities when deciding on the procedures. Dr. Tantillo's office was very inviting and when I met his staff/medical personal I felt comfortable and at ease. I had time to ask questions and did take him up on the opportunity to call back with any additional questions. One of the other facilities I went to see put sales pressure on me to buy other products/procedures. They were also more like a shop in a mall than a medical facility. The preperation for surgery was very relaxing. All the staff were very friendly.

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

They all thought I was crazy because I am such a small person in first place. But they don't realize how much I work out and there are a few spots I just can't change with all the cardio and lifting I do.

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

They offered several doctors in my area. I think it is recommended that people look at least 3 to 5 facilities before making a decision. It can only help to know what your options are. You have to have confidence in the doctor and the staff that you are going to be seeing. 1800MySurgeon followed up with me after I would see a physican to see how things went.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

The atmosphere the morning of my surgery was very relaxing. I was nervous but they provided a wonderful warm blanket and always had someone with me to ramble to in my nervousness. Recovery went very smoothly. I was properly prepared as to what to expect so there were no surprises. I found the literature to be very helpful.

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

Don't be hasty. Tke your time to find the doctor that you feel comfortable with. Be aware of store front type of facilities with pressure sales pitches. I would have them make sure that the doctor is going to be available for questions that come up along the way.

How do you feel about your result?

Two weeks since surgery and I think things are turning out great. I expect things to look even better as tiime goes on. My pain was minimal and I made sure to do what I was told to maximize my healing time.
