Hey everyone! Thank you all so much for your sweet messages, thoughts, prayers, etc! I have filmed most of my recovery, and now will be releasing them, as well as current updates! As always, you can follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter for current updates!
Below is my surgery day vlog, and I’ll be posting more very soon!
Hey guys! If you follow me on social media then you know that I’ve announced that I will be having some of my loose skin removed on October 5th, 2016. After losing 110 lbs, I feel so much better, and now this is just the next step for me. I did A LOT of research, and met with several surgeons before deciding. Ultimately, with the help of my plastic surgeon, I decided to have a lower body lift, tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction, and fat grafting (from the liposuction) to my breast (instead of getting implants). I’m not against implants, it’s just that I still have quite a bit of breast tissue, and really don’t think it’s needed at this time.
My surgeon is Dr. Stephen Ronan from Blackhawk Plastic Surgery, in Danville, CA. (San Francisco Bay Area). Dr. Ronan has an impressive reputation, a fully accredited, state-of-the-art, on-site surgery center, and I just instantly felt comfortable and confident in his opinion. I can’t stress enough how important it is to make sure your surgeon is board certified in plastic surgery, has great reviews, and makes you feel comfortable. Having surgery is a major decision, and come surgery day you need to feel confident and safe with your surgeon. I recommend checking out Real Self for plastic surgery reviews!
I will be filming several videos to document my surgical journey/progress, and will share any helpful information with all of you! Even though this is difficult to share, I feel like it may help others facing the same issue, so here I am! You all have been the most incredible support system, and I can’t thank you enough!
I will be updating with before and after photos, but for now, here are some pre-surgical photos of my loose skin.
