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

My stomach never went flat after giving birth. Twenty-two years later, I had pain from always "tummy sucking". I talked to different doctors about lipo, UAL, tummy tuck, & the "spa solutions". This seemed to be the best solution.

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

My family was not happy with my decision. They were nervous that something could go wrong. I think there may have been a little jealousy from a few members.

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

1800MySurgeon recommended Dr. Joseph. They also offered to check the records of any other surgeon I considered. I did go see others for consultation,but ultimately went with him.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I got to the surgery center at 6:30 a.m. monday morning.By 8:00 I was under. I woke up in a private room with a wonderful nurse who took care of my every need.

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

Please check your surgeon's record & reputation with the state boards & other patients. Also, take your recovery SERIOUSLY! Do what they suggest, & take enough time off to heal.

How do you feel about your result?

It has only been 5 days, but I'm pleased with what I see. I am in a LOT of pain, but I feel it will be worth it. I was not,obese, merely thick. The section between my navel & hairline was completely removed, & the muffin top is gone thanks to lipo.
