How long was the surgery for your 2 procedures. I’ve been told 5 hours maybe a little less! Seems like a long time.

Estimate was 6 hours but I believe it took 5.

Okay so I’ve got a question:

Does anybody know what surgeons say about breast cancer survivors and brachioplasty?

I’ve never had lymphedema and would hate for that to happen.

My surgeon does not do abs and thighs and butt at the same time because it is a lot of stress on the body. Fun fact: the doctors on Botched don't do butt and abs at the same time either because you can either lay on your back or stomach... not both. lmao. That was Dr. Dubrow's explanation.

Unrelated - the surgical center just charged me FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS for use of their facilities when my estimate was 3700$ and prepaid. LOL. I am going to go postal on someone. It took me a YEAR to fix the error they made with my gallbladder bill. Looks like I have another saga....
I totally watched that episode a few days ago!!! Lol!! With the British girl that was hilarious and won't laugh at Dubrow's jokes!! Lol

Isn't it amazing just how much the skin stretches? Congrats again and you look FAB. I need to get my belly done but figured I would stabilize somewhere and then look into it. Too bad insurance doesn't cover it.

Oh my. Wasn't prepared for that.

What are the two little dark nuggets between the stomach pieces and the arm pieces?

My insurance would have covered it if I waited another 6 months but I am impatient and the doctor I wanted didn't take insurance for tummy tucks so whateva.

      I bought a box (7 servings) of peaches and cream oatmeal (used one) and pumpkin spice pancake mix (none used).  I no longer want them.  The exp dates are 4/2023 and 10/2022, respectively.  I live in Manatee Co, FL.  Will take $10 for all.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.
