  1. I had complications with every surgery. My bypass left me with an open wound for 8 months requiring multiple surgeries to fix. My lift an reduction developed a seroma and had an open wound for 4 months after ripping open. My right implant took 3 tries to keep in, the first two times I developed infections. First time we removed it and let the pocket drain and close on its own and the 2nd tme ended up needing IV antibiotics via a picc line to keep the implant. I developed localized infection from my thigh, lower back and flank lifts that had to be opened and drianed.
  2. $15,000 is pretty reasonable. I spent over $40k on plastics last year, totally worth it(and I had tons of complications). I think 3-6 weeks is a crazy long recovery. I was out to dinner and at the grocery store 8 days out and had implants and a tummy tuck. Back to an active job at 13 days.
  3. I had had a lift/reduction before my WLS, I got implants after.....and all the other plastic surgery possible. My body was a hot mess LOL
  4. I'm at 32H/HH and love BraObsessed, great size ranges and not too $$
  5. I met with 6 or 7 I think. I picked the 2nd to last one, he was great! I'm so glad I went to someone connected to a good hospital. I had so many complications and having all the specialists around to work with him was great.
  6. My new belly button is super cute! Get a 2nd opinion
  7. I had an extended TT and breast aug together and then 4 months later, arms, hips, sides and thighs done together. The first was about 5-6hrs and 2nd about 8
  8. I had an extended tummy tuck (pubic bone to breast bone and hip to hip) and implants. I stayed on night and took the pain meds, went home the next day to my 2nd floor walk up, was out to the grocery store and dinner by 1 week postop and back to work(as an RN) on day 13. I took tylenol and it wasnt bad. I had an 8 hr arm/leg/side/lower back lift that had complications on day 10, but was back to work by day 18. My last plastic surgery was a 2nd set of implants and some skin removal from my side, went back to work 48 hrs later. Reaching for stuff was hard, but I was able to cook, shower by myself and get dressed without help right away. I slept on the couch on a wedge, with a pillow under my knees because it was more comfortable. I took arnica and Tylenol, because I didn't like the narcotic. All and all way easier than anticipated. The drains suck, oh and get a shower chair
  9. I lost half my hair haha. I had a ton to start, these pictures are 12/2011 and 12/2015.....it took 3 years for my hair to be back to normal.
  10. I think so of it too is were wearing more fitted, real clothes. You feel it way more in sized dress of skinny jeans than a pair of loose yoga pants and an unfitted shirt.
  11. Deviled egg salad, quest bars, cheese sticks, greek yogurt, lentils satayed with tomatoes and spinach
  12. I was never a soda person, but I drink tons of seltzer/club soda with no issues
  13. I don't dump as much as I used to. The suger/dairy combo still gets to me 9 times out of 10 and bread makes me barf. But I can eat french fries, real cheese, some candy without issue.
  14. I let myself eat a few cookies-I pick things I know I love and don't waste it on so so things. I eat really well for all my other meals and it isnt an issue.
  15. Before my skin removal I wore a lot of spanx, but I don't think they make them for guys??
