At 17, I became a mother and since that day my body was no longer that of a young woman but a woman's body that had shown sacrifice. My children range from 3 to 23 and I would do it all over again to have them in my life. But now it was my turn to give something back, just for me. I decided to have a breast augmentation and tummy tuck at 41.
My first experience was horrible. The PS (not Dr. Moore) was older and very arrogant made me feel bad about myself. After seeing pictures of his work, I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Needless to say I didn't use him for my surgery. Being from Montana, I was at a loss as to where and how I'd find someone. With a lot of searching, I finally found a doctor in Idaho who would become my choice for plastic surgeon.
It was a whirlwind from the start. I gathered as much information by phone calls to his office manger as much as possible. And the internet which led me to ImplantInfo. Thank the Lord! I had a solid idea of what I already wanted and was as prepared as much as I could be.
The day after Easter I was packed and off to my consult in Idaho. Met with Dr. Moore. A lot younger than I thought he'd be but he was smart and very professional - really knew his stuff. His work showed skill and made me feel very confident with my choices. He told me I could choose silicone implants which I was very excited about! I needed a lift which would be all done through the areola. Then I was to have a tummy tuck all of this to be done the very next afternoon at the Idaho Surgical Center just down the road from his office.
It was to say the least a very tense night. Everything was moving very quickly but it was wonderful to know that by the next night I'd be all done and on my way to healing. To the new me!
The surgery went great and the folks at the Surgical Center took great care of my husband and me. We spent the rest of the night at a nearby hotel and had a follow up the next morning and then back to Montana.
It's still hard to believe that I truly went through with it! it's been two weeks today and I'm on the mend. the only thing that's hard is the distance between my PS and me but i have a wonderful family doctor that has helped me through removal of staples and drains and ImplantInfo by Nicole has been a great help to me. I head back for a checkup in a few weeks. Can't wait to see what he thinks of how I'm doing. Everything looks scary still with all the incisions but I'm beginning to see small improvements and I am so excited to see what the next weeks changes will bring.
I would recommend my surgeon Dr. Kirk Moore. He made it very easy for me being out of state and all. Everything was all in a convenient location and I even got a few discounts (hotel room, places to eat, etc.) because I was having surgery in their town. And everything was handled with great efficiency. I'd like to send you all updates and pictures as soon as I can. Healthy Healing!!!!
