Leah Blog: Consultation

After some research on my own, I learned that I could probably only lose that skin with surgery.   I knew of Dr. Bashioum’s reputation, I had heard him on the radio and I enjoyed his humorous television commercials.   I decided that I needed to meet with him to see what he was like in person.  I connected with him right away.   He made me feel comfortable with my body and confident in his ability to make the change that I was looking for.  I didn’t need a ton of skin removed, but he agreed that I could use a tune up.   It was only after I first met with him that I took the time to specifically research his work.

During my consultation, I met with Dr. Bashioum and he examined my stomach.   He didn’t think it would be much work at all.   He felt that I could get rid of the extra skin and use a muscle tightening technique to pull it all together.   I want to look good in a bikini, but I also want to be able to grow old without having to work so hard.   I do take care of myself everyday to stay healthy and I want to FEEL as good on the outside as I do on the inside.   It is purely an image choice.   I am ok with that.   I am stuck with this body for the rest of my life, so I want to feel proud of it.

I am worried about post-surgery recovery the most.   I have four kids under the age of 10.   They don’t all require physical attention but they do need me there for them everyday.   I don’t want this to impact them negatively AT ALL.   My recovery will probably impact my 2 year old the most, since he still likes to be picked up and carried around.   I am really going to have to watch myself.   My husband has agreed to cover the kids for the week and my mother-in-law is going to help out, too.   I don’t think I could pull this off without them!

I also want to keep this surgery private.   I don’t want people to know that I have had surgery.   If someone asks, I will tell them, but I am not going to offer the information unless they ask.   How am I going to keep this secret?   I just want people to notice how great I look and feel.   That is what I hope for my future- to look great and FEEL great.

My surgery is scheduled for early January, so be sure to check back to read more about my experience and see video clips of my tummy nipntuck.
