The first part to this blog post received great feedback as well as questions requesting more info, so that’s why I decided to create a second part to it! You can find the first post HERE.
For this second part, I’d like to introduce to you Evelyn. She’s an extraordinary lash artist I met this year and after a couple chats, her surgery came up. I asked if she would share her story with us and she gracefully accepted! You will find what she had to say below.
SURGICAL AND OTHER SENSITIVE PHOTOS WILL BE DISPLAYED BELOW ACCOMPANYING EVELYN’S STORY.
My name is Evelyn Ramos i am 26 years old and a mother of 2 gorgeous kids.
I recently did a mommy makeover which is breast augmentation with breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction in inner thighs and flanks.
I decided to do this surgery after my kids turned a certain age which are 5 and 6. They were more independent I didn’t have to be carrying them anymore. It took me several years to think about it and workout so much of the baby weight I had.
I was a little bitty thin girl before I had my kids. I was at 115 pounds and after both kids I was at 174 pounds. I was depressed. I needed to work off the weight so I did. I went back down to 130 and I worked my butt off. I did diet pills which I do not recommend. I blacked out twice with those pills and felt like I was going to have a heart attack.
I went down to 115 and I had so much loose skin. I had stopped the pills and kept working out and nothing would tighten back my skin.
Thats when I went to Dr. Courtney here in Houston. I almost backed out on my consultation because I was afraid. My husband took me and we were all in a table talking about what was bothering me and he took a look at me and went from there. My surgery was $16,000.
The surgery part was scary my husband didn’t want me to do it at first. He said I was beautiful since he first met me but deep down I wasn’t happy with myself.
The day of surgery I felt happy and nervous. Once they put me down, the meds kicked in, the greatest feeling ever!!! Lol. Then after 5 hours of surgery, I woke up and was so cold, so sleepy, and just drugged up. The 2nd day was bad I was in so much pain I couldn’t walk correctly I had to be bathed, I had to have help for everything. I wouldn’t do the surgery ever again. It was very painful but I did have a lot of support!
Whether you decide to take the plunge and get a Mommy Makeover, or practice self-care in a different way, remember to always do the appropriate research and make these changes for yourself! Talk to you soon!
