No Celery Please – NYC Edition!

Step One

Posted in Uncategorized by noceleryplease on September 29, 2009

OK, so I called up our local “oldest and most respected plastic surgery center in the city”.

I figure, might as well start with the best if I am going to get a consultation on what’s right for my situation.

Then if they turn out to be prohibitively costly, I might go to the second or third best to get a second opinion.

I feel pretty strongly that I will not be moving out of the top three.  There are some things that you should do right, or not at all.

This is, after all, a completely elective procedure.  If I decide I can’t spend the money, I’ll just live with what I’ve got, not look around for bargain basement surgery.

I mean… I hired the best company in town to do work on my house… I’ll stick with that model for getting work done on my body.

So on October 20, I will be attending a seminar that their massive weight loss specialist Dr. does.  It’s a dog and pony show up front of the types of surgery they do for weight loss patients.  Then after, the attendees get individual consultations (which I guess means a bit of waiting around while others get their turn, but hey, it’s a free consult), then he tells you what he thinks would be the best options for your particular situation.

I, being the OCD researcher I am, already have a pretty good idea of what the best option is for my case, but he, being an actual expert and all, will likely have different things to say.

So, now just for more waiting.

    Research is good and I totally agree that you can cut corners on many things, but never on something that involves cutting on your body.

    This is EXACTLY the way one should approach something as serious as surgery.

    I hope this turns out to be exactly what you’re looking for, and that the Dr. is NICE as well as educated.
