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

I married my junior high school sweetheart, we dated from 7th grade on. We have two beautiful daughters & now two beautiful grand daughters. My family was & still are the most important things in my life, but some where along the way I lost my identity by putting everyone else before myself & not taking care of myself. I gained a lot of weight & just got into a comfort zone. I'm not getting any younger so I decided to lose weight. What I didn't expect after a 72 pound weight loss was all of the loose skin. After losing the weight I starting feeling good about myself. I had went from a size 18 to a 5/6. The first shopping trip was like being a little kid again on Christmas morning. But I still had those breast that felt like they were hanging to my knees & a belly that I would hate to sit down because I knew people could see my rolls. So I decided to get a tummy tuck & a laser bra lift. I'm going to be 50 in a couple of weeks so don't ever think your to old to have plastic surgery. I wish I would have done it a long time ago.

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

My husband is very happy for me. My daughters are glad I made the decision to have the procedures done. Thanks C.W.

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

1800mySurgeon was very helpful. I spoke/e-mailed with Melissa G. I honestly did not know where to start to find a surgeon. She helped me through this process. I hope she knows how much I appreciate all of her help. Thank You C.W.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

My surgery went really good. Everyone that took care of me was great! Dr. Heck is just wonderful, I had planned to meet with 3 plastic surgeons. My first visit was with Dr. Heck after I met with him I knew I wanted him to be my surgeon. His work is truly amazing. I'm just 11 days post-op & I already love the results & feel great. I will always use Dr. Heck if I have any other procedures done & I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks, C.W.

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

Go for it you won't be sorry. The recovery is not bad at all & you will love the end results. Thanks, C.W.

How do you feel about your result?

I love my results, I'm only 11 days post-op and I already like what I'm seeing. I can't wait to see the final results! Thanks, C.W.
