    There is also a video, whre she did an interview with her surgeon.

    But your arms would have a "seam" in them!

    All I know is both times plastic surgeons have talked at support group they said no plastic surgery until you have been at goal for a year.

    No clue about Mexico, sorry. But in the states it isn't that expensive, I would check that out too.

    Breast augmentation? Sounds good, Tamara2! Feeling like this would be my next move for a renewed confidence.

    I would like my neck and jaw line area lifted and extended brachioplasty,
    But it's very expensive.
    I would have to save money and in the meantime I can wait and see, what my skin is doing.
    Maybe in a year or so, it will be less bad.
    We'll see.

    Hi Sraebaer, I’m not planning to do anything until After I reach my final goal. Just wanting to start my research. I appreciate your input. I was curious how long after you reach your final goal you should wait before have plastic surgery. Thanks again for sharing.

    Hi Arabella, I completely agree. I can’t wait till I can have Breast Augmentation. Unfortunately I have between 33-40lbs till I hit my final goal. Wish I could have this done soon. Tired of being deflated and the girls are shrieking by the week it seems.lol Will only be able to wear sports bras soon. Hope your able to have this done if you choose.

    We both have time and hopefully things will continue to improve why we save up and research. I see we both had surgery last January. Good luck

    I went to Dr Sauceda in Monterrey Mexico. First visit, outstanding success with a jumbo procedure - LBL, breast lift/aug, arms and little removal of inner thigh cellulite. A few years later I had to go back to fix something that was no fault of the doctors - that part went amazingly well. I got greedy and decided to have my thighs done - without a lot of research. Not only did I have terrible complications (it can happen with the best of surgeons) but the results haven't held up all that well. Had I researched it better, I would have understood it better.

    In conclusion - I would definately recommend Dr Sauceda. I would also recommend you spend many hours on realself.com, talk to other people etc. Plastic surgery (especially the lower body lift) is a big big deal. Recovery was much longer and more difficult than the sleeve. Go in with eyes wide open as complications might occur regardless of where you go. i was so well prepared the first time I went, I had no surprises - I knew it would be rough and everything really did go according to plan. WEll, except I got WAY better results than I had dared hope for.

    This was all a few years back (2013 and 2015) - I expect I will do something with the face but not sure what, not sure where I will go. I will definately research it though (5 years ago, Dr S told me to wait 10 years before considering face work, but the wrinkles and sags are becoming more and more noticable!)

    Thank you very much for all the information you provided. The biggest thing I want to have done is breast augmentation/lift and maybe my arms. I’ve completely lost my own and what i do have is is deflated and saggy. Also most of my loose skin is located in my arms. I can see how it would be easy to get caught up with plastics. I will do my research and not doing anything for awhile. Are you still have with your breast augmentation/lift and arms? Dr Sauceda seems like a very caring doctor and does great work at least for those with a lot of severe skin issues. Still need definitely need to do a lot more research. I appreciate your feedback.

    Dr Sauceda, his primary nurse Patty - and really the whole crew are wonderful. He is not as aggressive as some other surgeons i think. It goes back to research - no way I could have had so much done had I stayed in the US - my results for breast, LBL, arms have been INCREDIBLE and have held up well. For me, he was a terrific choice.

    Somewhere - I have photographic evidence....
