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

I was always slim until I reached my mid-40s. I have had a very active life and still do, but even with diet and exercise I was slowly gaining weight. So I considered having liposuction and a tummy tuck. I have also always looked younger than I am by at least 10 years and I wanted to continue to do so.

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

My husband was supportive. My girlfriends were curious and decided to let me be the guinea pig. I kept them updated on each step of the procedure.

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

I researched the procedures online in great detail. I had also looked up plastic surgeons in my area. Then I came across 1800mySurgeon. I called 1800mySurgeon and they suggested my present surgeon and because I went through them I was able to get a free consultation. 1800mySurgeon also followed up with me to make sure I was pleased with their service.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

The doctors and nurses were great - all of them. I when in early around 7am and before I knew it I was waking up. My core area was sore and a little painful. They told me it would be better if I could get up and walk. I did a couple of times. They gave me garnmets to wear that help with the healing. It is 6 weeks after the surgery now and I am thrilled. I still go to the doctor and his staff for facials and hair removal.

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

After surgery, no matter how much it hurts, if the surgeon tells you to move around, do it so you will recover quicker. Follow all the doctor's instructions. Try to find a plastic surgeon that also offers the limp node massages after the surgery.

How do you feel about your result?

Like a new woman and I think its great that I am almost 50 and I look this good. I notice men looking at me more often. In essence, I am turning heads again. I feel better about myself. I want to go out and show off more. My surgeon and his staff say I have recovered really well I am thrilled and it can only get better.
