OK, I did it....
Monday, March 08, 2010
After discussing it with my husband and thinking about it for a week, I called the plastic surgeon for a second appointment. This is the appointment where you go in for pictures, sign consent forms, pay for the surgery you've chosen...and schedule a surgery date. I'm so excited! I feel a bit indulgent but also believe this is the "perfect storm" if you will; a convergence of situations that make it the perfect time to give myself this gift. My husband and I are celebrating 20 years of marriage this year; I was given a very generous monetary gift last Christmas that I never really spent; we sold our house. These and other circumstances make this the time. My husband is behind me 100%; he always is. I am going to do it.
By summer I will have less sagging skin; a much more attractive and much less sensitive scar...and something I can't remember EVER having in my life (even as a teen). I will have breasts that actually do not droop down halfway to my belly buton. I will be able to wear zip up pants again. I may even get myself a belly button ring.
Life is good! Thank you G*d.
