So I went to my family Dr to ask for a plastics referral, it will be a long wait to get in and by the time I hope to be near goal or at goal. Due to the old boobs hanging and infections and panni same issues I told him I wasnt concerned of the looks I just would settle with not being soaked there or having sweat traps so hopefully gger will do this for me so I don't need to go to Mexico for it because I an worried about infections post op. I told him if I have to I would but definitely not cosmetic reason. So basically I have to wait to see the surgeon to see what they say. I would rather both be done at the same time just because I don't want the pain twice, miss more work then I have to etc....but he thinks they would only di one at a time. There is a plastics clinic here that we can pay for it but it is more then half the cost if Mexico but at least there is follow up if infection set in. crossing my fingers for the long wait time that it won't take me that long to get in to at least have the initial consult to see if they will do the surgery.

The plastics surgery here is more then half what it would cost in Mexico for more procedures done there. I typed that up on my phone and it just doesn't complete the words for me sometimes

sorry my brain is not computing do you mean double the price of Mexico?  do you have an example of tummy tuck cost? vs Mexico

Yes, here in Halifax it is about 15000 for the boobs and tummy tuck and you can get a full mommy make over in Mexico for about 7000. I am just worried about post op infection, plastics is a longer recovery and more involved then the VSG. My doctor has called me back to come back in for more information for the referral I guess so I go back in to see him next week. I so hope I can get this done here, even if it is just the boob reduction and lift I will be fine with that but might as well ask about the panni as well since my c-sections have left a flap that collects moisture lots sometimes causing infections so I will be running back and forth to record them all, summer is the hardest time.
