Plastic Surgery After Having Children Female1: Well, the reason that I chosen to do plastic surgery was because after having three children, it really kind of changes your body shape and I was very self conscious. I had always been really thin and had a small waist and smaller breasts that were perky and so I chose to do plastic surgery so that I thought better and had more confidence in myself. Female2: What bothered me about my body was I had gotten older and I had had a couple of children—C section and I have gained weight really I hadn’t taken care of myself to take care of my children and work. And the weight was hard to come off. And I always had large breast for my size. I'm petite, only five feet tall. And that and the stomach was getting bigger and soggier and exercise wasn’t helping and I just was feeling self floating emotionally and I didn’t realize how negative I was about myself until I looked around my house and I didn’t have mirrors in my house, not many. I didn’t like to look at the mirror. And I just kept thinking that it doesn’t seem too healthy to feel so self floating all the time. “Am I going to get older and it’s going to get worst or am I going to just stop and do something about it?” You know, if you don’t like it, fix it. So finally, I committed to fixing it. And so I researched the cosmetic surgery and read testimonials online and decided I think I'm going to do it. And once I made the commitment, I followed through on it. Female1: I actually went to visit quite a few doctors before I chose Dr. Delgado but my husband had met Dr. Delgado and was very impressed by him. And after going to a few doctors and coming down to meet him, I felt really confident with him and his staff and his portfolio exceeded anything that I had seen previously. So, I chose him because he was the best. Female2: I chose Dr. Delgado to be my surgeon after researching extensively on the internet because it’s easy to do. I'm new to San Francisco, I'm not from this area and I really didn’t have friends that had plastic surgery. I don’t know anyone that did our cosmetic surgery so I had no referral basis and of course that is something that you don’t really want to talk about with coworkers or anything so it’s private. You’re not going to ask people. So, I used the internet and looked at their credentials and read a lot of the testimonials of the different websites and I liked what I saw about Dr. Delgado’s website and so I came in for a consultation. When I went in for my consultation with Dr. Delgado, I immediately felt comfortable and confident. And Dr. Delgado actually exuded a confidence that I've got the impression he knew what he was doing, he knew what he was talking about and he did put me relaxed and his staff was really nice. I knew I made the right choice just from that first visit. Female1: I wanted a few procedures done at Dr. Delgado’s office. I wanted to have a tummy tuck and liposuction and I also wanted a breast reduction and lift. And so, I scheduled them at two different times. I had a tummy tuck and liposuction done the first time about two years ago. And then recently had a reduction and lift to my breast. Female2: I scheduled to do my surgery procedures all at one time. I had a couple of procedures done and the reason I chose to do that was one, I was afraid of checking out. If I did one, I wouldn’t go through with all of it because I didn’t know what to expect. And secondly, for work reasons, I wanted to just do the downtime all at one time. Female1: The pre-op book explained a lot to me. They went over a lot of details prior to the surgery in the office. They definitely didn’t hide anything. They were very clear about how much help I would need after the surgeries and so I think that they were very, very professional books. Female2: I had my surgery at the Marin Cosmetics Surgery Center which is a beautiful facility and I spent the night in a private suite which is very clean and attractive and I felt very
