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

I have always been a fit person, however I have always had a larger waist than the rest of my body. I have always had a hard time shopping for jeans and shorts and after having two children my body took an apple appearance. I had thought about cosmetic surgery but the horror stories kept me away from actually going for it. Now I am approaching 40, I am a pretty attractive woman who is in great physical condition with the exception of my waist. I decided, with today's improved technology and with ways I could find a plastic surgeon who had really good credentials, to go for it.

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

My kids were not for it, nor was my significant other and best friend.  They were apprehensive at first, but then became supportive. I have not shared this with the rest of my family or friends, as I don't want them to know. I want them to simply see the results and how great I am looking. I may share it later.

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

1800mySurgeon found me a great board-certified plastic surgeon with excellent credentials and with a clean record.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

Well I was asleep for the surgery, but from what I gather the surgery went well. My doctor seemed pretty happy about it. My recovery has been very good and relatively painless. I am seeing my body change every day towards my desired body. I have a little way to go until I am there, but I am so pleased already.

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

I would say go for it. It has been one of the nicest things I have ever done for myself and I could just kick myself for not doing it sooner.

How do you feel about your result?

I am very happy with my results and I have not even seen the final result yet, because I am only into my second week of recovery. As my body heals I get better and better.
