I want to have my first one done in October.  I went for my first consultation with Dr. Pancel and have another one scheduled with Dr. Gonce.  I want to check around with two or three before deciding.

Word to the wise....that appoint is very ummm....well.....horrifying! ha ha!! They give you this paper g-string and that is all you wear while the doctor inspects every bit of your flesh - tugging and pulling to see what needs to be lifted and where.  So just head up.

The cost from Dr. Panchel was about $14,000 for tummy and inner thighs.  Dr. Goonce is 6,000 for the tummy alone.

I have done boobs and arms with Dr. Sawan. The intial consultation was NOT uncomfortable... there was no g-string anything going on. I went for a few other consultations with others who are well known in the area (Dr. Tim Love) and found that we just didn't click. Sawan was kind, professional, and honest. He also has the ability to work with Weight Wise to do your surgeries there instead of OU. I was more comfortable with that arrangement as I don't like the thought of interns working on my new body! Anyway, the down time for the arms was killer. If I had only done boobs, there would be just a little discomfort but nothing major. I am now 7 months post op on the arms and boobs and have no issues. I love my new arms. I am going for another consultation for tummy in April... probably going to try for late July on that operation. Sawan suggests doing your different surgeries at different times because you will not be able to pull yourself up with your arms for a bit... won't work well if you do tummy at the same time... how are ya gonna get up?!! Good luck with your procedures and remember that even with new arms and boobs and tummies and legs, we will always have to watch what we eat and exercise!!!!

Hi Everyone, it has been a long time since I have updated my blog. I am now doing updates again as I am moving into the plastic surgery portion of my journey for anyone that is interested.

For Women only: A great resource for plastics is tummytucktalk.ning.com

This site is not only for tt, but all sorts of plastics. You must be a member so tell them that Lisa from MO sent you as a referral. This place is great and had the icky pics that I was looking for and details that I couldn't find elswhere online. Stuff I wanted to know before heading into surgery!
