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

I had been considering this surgery for many years but always had other priorities to consider financially. I still do, but I had wanted to do this for so long and finally made the decision to just go for it! I have always had a small build and really wanted to feel a little better about my figure.

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

A few were a little surprised but most weren't! The ones who have known me the longest remembered I had talked about this for years so they knew I was well ready! My kids thought it was a little strange however!

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

By calling me, 1800mySurgeon really helped me get the ball in motion, because I may not have without someone else to make the first move. 1800mySurgeon gave me the contact information, history and education of the doctor and a few follow-up emails to check in on the progress, etc. It was much easier than just blindly picking a doctor from a directory.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

Very smooth, wonderful doctor, anesthesiologist and staff. Dr. Clark called me the evening of my surgery to check in and see how I was feeling. I was already scheduled out for all my follow-up visits from the next day to 6 months out so I have been well taken care of.

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

Any elective surgery of this nature is an investment in yourself and can be of a private nature. However, I found that mentioning it to friends or co-workers brought out so many other people who have done similar surgeries or thinking about it. So being able to ask questions to people you know who have been through it can give you even more insight on what to expect with results, healing time, discomfort, etc. But the best advice, is to let your kids warm up to the idea well before you have surgery. Some kids get weirded out by their moms trying to look younger or sexier!

How do you feel about your result?

I'm still healing, and will take a few more months before my implants are settled and looking more natural. However, in clothes, I look great and the shape is getting better everyday!
