    Default Order of cosmetic surgery?

    I am currently looking into getting some cosmetic surgeries done but I was wondering if there was a specific order that is recommended?

    I am looking into getting a tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, breast lift and augmentation.

    Also if anyone has any recommendations for surgeons in the EU, I would greatly appreciate it!

    Hi!

    you could ask densol https://www.gastricsleeve.com/forum/member.php?u=40327

    she had cosmetic surgery in the UK.

    I just had cosmetic surgery in France last week (arms and legs) tummy tuck next Spring I hope. For the price I wouldn't know since most of it is covered by my insurance. My surgeon is great, I had surgery with him 20 years ago. But he wants to retire next year...

    I saw several surgeons this past year they all said they could do two procedures each time, breast/ arms or belly/thighs but you really start the way the most convenient for you. I started with the arms first because since I gained back some weight in January with medication, I wanted to lose it before the tummy tuck because for some weird reason the gain went straight to my belly. My arms didn't change..

    HI I see you had the surgery 5 years ago with Mr Halstead. I had my surgery 4 months ago with him as well. I was wondering why you have waited 5 years to have the cosmetic surgery? As I am still a newbie, I have a while to go before I can consider cosmetic surgery, however if I had to have it, I would prefer to stay in the UK in case of complications. Why don't you look at cosmetic surgeons who work at Spire, Ramsey health or any other private provider within the UK. Good luck with you continued success.

    I had my arms done at the same time as an abdominoplasty and belt lipectomy back in December 2015 in Australia.
    That's the maximum open area my plastic reconstructive surgeon will do.

    One Powerball and I'll get my thighs and breasts lifted.

    I had my c-section area fixed many years ago by Dr. Glumicic in Zagreb Croatia. It was basically a mini tummy tuck to fix the deformity caused by my C-section that was cut in the wrong place. I wish I had pictures of the before. It was horrendous. I learned about him from several friends who used him for breast augmentation. He does wonderful work. Prices were reasonable and he was very professional. He speaks English. The facility was clean and you can stay there in the facility or at a hotel afterwards. I have issues with anesthesia and a nurse stayed with me all night.

    Although Dr Glumicic's site does not look updated. I went to him in 2008.

    It's cool that you study this. It is very important now that surgeons are now highly qualified. I understand you are doing tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, breast lift and augmentation? This will really be very useful for women who have given birth to two or more children, since after childbirth some nuances appear on the body, because of which women are very complex. I hope that in the future, you will start to study facial surgery. Now a lot of problems arise with him, due to age. Various wrinkles, bags under the eyes and more. Many people want to get rid of it. Do you already work in a clinic or are you just looking for a job? It's just that now it's really very difficult to find a good clinic with qualified personnel . I'm sure you will succeed in the future, good luck!

    If i rememmber correctly, you should start from the top and move to the buttom. But, a lot of surgeons say that it doesn't matter...

    If you want to be cared well, to receive a great treatment and a good look after that, I would suggest you to go to the best surgeon in Seattle. He does the best plastic surgery in Seattle. I was also his patient. He is a professional that knows his job and he takes care of everything he touches. I was thinking a lot of making a cosmetic surgery and I have decided, even if I do this, I have to find the best surgeon, so I did it. I am glad I met him and went straight to him.

    When I decided to have surgery, I immediately identified the most priority areas for myself , these are the abdomen.

    I don't think it matters not unless you plan to do them one or few weeks apart. Just start with what you really want to change first.

    Girl, you are so brave! I would never have decided to make such interventions! Even before my gastric sleeve surgery, I was not sure that I'm ready to do it. The key factor of my insecurity is that I'm really afraid of pain. Although there are a lot of things about my body that I would like to change, I'm not ready to endure pain for this purpose. Therefore, I'm for harmless beauty procedures. The only uncomfortable session I do is setting mink lashes. However, I've already got used to it, because I just can't imagine my eyes without them. The effect is bomb!
