Sharing my PS results...pics.



Recommended Posts

Hello,

I had LAP-BAND® on May 2008. I have had success with my band, I am only 6 pounds away from my goal.

This summer I went to my country of origin and I had PS. I stayed there for 2 whole months with family. I had a great experience and that is why I wanted to share my final results after 5 months of PS.

FYI, I had the following procedures done at the same time. My surgery lasted 9 hrs.

I had Full Tummy Tuck with 6 packs defined and waist defined.

I had Whole over the body high Definition LAser (VASER) liposuction

I had Brazilian butt lift

I had Breast Augmentation with high profile cohesive silicone gel.

Just wanted to share since i am a different women, more confident and now I am enjoying my new figure. I feel very happy.

I will be happy to read your comments...

Wow you look great. Where did you go to have this done? You said that you went out of the country? If you don't mind me asking how much did you cost you because you went out of the country? (you don't have to answer if you don't want to). But again you look great.

Thank you for all your responses;

I went to my country of origen Colombia-Southamerica. I have my surgery done in Bogota, for one of the most prestigious plastic surgeons, he has been the surgeon of many TV celebrities in my country, top models, etc.etc. I traveled because I have family overthere and i could stay with out any rush, this type of procedures need TIME TO RECOVER...

The cost was 10.000 dollars for everything including a nurse for 12 days 24/7, post surgical drainages (10), girdles, silicone implants.

My surgery was done at Fundacion Santa Fe de Bogota, which is one of the top 5 hospitals in Latin America and one of the best in Colombia.

The name of my surgeon is Felipe Amaya, Cirugia plastica en colombia, lipoescultura, cirugia de senos, cirugia de nariz.

He is very fluent in english for those who don't speak spanish, and As far as i know he has the ability to find you an apartment while you need to be there, however, as I mentioned when you do an extensive procedure like I did, you need at least 5 weeks in Colombia to fully recover....

well, if you have any questions, please ask me, I have been very open about my journey and i am happy to share my experience.

WOW!! You do look amazing! I am almost a year out and starting to really think about PS. Do you think your family in Columbia would be interested in renting rooms out so that some of us could go there and have work done?? LOL.....bet they could make some good money, all thanks to you!! Again, you are a true inspiration. :thumbup: Best wishes on continued success!

Girl you look GREAT. Some of the procedures you've got done I also want to get it. I am from Brasil and will try to get at least my Tummy Tuck approved by my insurance but if they dont approve I will be going to Brasil in April to get it done with a very well known and competent PS doc. My main requests are: tumy tuck and a butt lift (brasilian style, of course). I cant wait to find out how much it will cost me. LOL

Did you get your TT and the butt lift at the same time??? Is that possible? I had a gastric bypass done Jan 26.09 and lost 97lbs so obviously I need some stuff done.
