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

I felt that I looked tired all the time. I did a lot of research to find the best doctor, at a reasonable price. I was a little nervous about it, since the procedure required me to stay overnight at the hospital.

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

Most of my friends did not know about it and a few family members. Some thought it was good to do and some thought I should not do it.

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

It helped me, because I do not know what to look for in a plastic surgeon and they do. I felt more comfortable with a surgeon that is board certified.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

It was a little scary at first. The nurses and doctors, put you at ease and will answer any questions you may have. The surgery went fine, but the recovery is a bit tough.

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

I would advise them to ask a lot of questions. The more you know, the more comfortable you will be about the procedure. It is something I think you must really want for yourself or otherwise you may not want to do it. You have to consider the risk and cost to how much you want it done.

How do you feel about your result?

The results are visible, but not as dramatic as I thought or hoped for. I still have places that the skin is not pulled tight as I thought it would be. It is a bit of a let down, but not quiet to the point where I regret doing it.
