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

I'm a 70 year old women in good shape except for having excess fat on my abdomen. My clothes didn't fit well. My 80 year old husband said go for it. We've been married 50 years this year and that was his gift to me. Dr. Yarinsky is a wonderful surgeon. It has been 5 weeks since surgery and I'm very pleased with the tummy tuck and liposculpture procedures I had done.

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

My immediate family was very supportive and encouraging. My husband was head chief  and bottle washer for about three and a half weeks. Without his support I couldn't have done it. My daughter went to surgery with me and cared for me for the first 24 hours. She was wonderful.

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

1800mySurgeon gave me the location of Board Certified Plastic Surgeon that specialized in the procedures I was interested in and helped me make the right choice.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

With the tummy tuck and liposuction, the first two days after surgery were the hardest, because of the stiffness. Each day got better. I experience practically no pain. It's been five weeks and I'm back to riding my bicycle at least one mile a day.

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

My best advice is make sure you have a good surgeon who specializes in the procedure you want done, and is Board Certified why the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

How do you feel about your result?

I feel that I look better than I had anticipated. Basically I feel 10 years younger, because all my clothing fit like it should and I don't have a large protruding stomach. My husband is very pleased with the results. After years of marriage I feel sexy again. My husband said my stomach never bothered him, however it bothered me.
