Starting my PS journey-first consults today



Recommended Posts

Thank you for sharing. I’m excited for you! I plan to start my own consults in a few months. I want a LBL and breast lift also. I’m not sure about implants. I’m still wearing a 36D, but even when I lift them up to wear they should be I still can’t see how just a lift will make them look right. Don’t need the arm lift, at least not as bad as the other stuff cause I’m a total pear and carried the majority of my weight in the bottom half. My surgeon will have his work cut out just dealing with that area! I’ll be looking forward to following your journey!

Update:

I had a virtual consult today with a Dr. in Port St. Lucie, FL. I found him after doing an extensive search of before/after arm photos on Real Self. His results are amazing! He talked me through why, he uses a very specific technique that seems to give really good results. He seems a bit more conservative than Dr. #1 from my first post. He won't do all 3 procedures at once, reason being he seems to spend a good deal more time on each procedure and won't keep his patients under anesthesia for extended periods of time. I have one more local consult tomorrow, and have requested another virtual consult with another team in Fl. At this point I'm leaning strongly towards Dr. #3 in Fl, as he took so much time with me today, was very very thorough with his explanations and had very impressive reviews and photos on Real Self, his website, and has been mentioned several times in FB groups I'm on. I'm still a bit scared of flying soon after surgery, but I also want to go with someone I'm 100% comfortable with. I shooting for a surgery date right after New Years, so want to get this on the books.


Edit to add: If I end up going with Dr. #3 I’ll have my arm lift & extended Tummy Tuck in January, and wait until a later date for my breast lift (maybe with augmentation). The girls look ok if I’m wearing a good bra, they can wait 😂

my plastic surgeon wasn't willing to keep patients under anesthesia for more than six hours, so my procedures were divided into two surgeries. He felt it was risky - but I was good with that. I didn't particularly want some tired guy coming at me with a knife (!). Some are OK with going longer - some not.
