Hello everyone!

November 14th I went to Baja and had a lower body lift with Dr Carmina Cardenas and her wonderfully talented team. I had gastric bypass over a year ago and found that I had so much excess skin. The new clothes I was buying for my tinier frame just didn't look right. After an exhaustive amount of research I chose Dr Cardenas because I really liked the results she gave her patients. She was also wonderfully sweet and honest. She and her team were never pushy and were extremely supportive. I stayed in the beauty care recovery house for a week and it was the best decision I could have ever made. I really needed that time to start the healing process and to have good pain management with the help of nurses and the doctor 24/7. I am I guess about seven weeks out now and am still puffy but am seeing such dramatic results. I still can't believe this is my new body. Only one of my pics would post but if anyone is interested I have others and would be most happy to answer any questions

I've never seen a vertical incision go up so high on the chest - what purpose does that serve? Will you be getting a breast lift later? Or is this incision in lieu of upper body work?

It was for the extra lax skin. My whole abdomen was tightened excellently. I am scheduled for a lift and implants along with brachioplasty this summer. The rest of my upper body tires wise is pretty tight so no need for anything else except for when I mentioned.

My surgeon has told me that if he had done a vertical incision to address the laxity in my upper stomach, it would have had to go as far, if not further, than that. While I wish the laxity had been addressed, I'm glad i didn't have to go quite that far.
