These Two Best Friends Did Their Tummy Tucks, Lipo, and Breasts Together, And They Couldn’t Be Happier


Hi, I’m Chelsea and this is Whitney. We live in Ashland, KY and we have been best friends since about the 5th grade. We each have three children and had C sections and had always talked about having tummy tucks and our breasts done, and just feeling like a normal person again. So finally, during COVID, Whitney got the crazy idea to research this and start looking into it. Tell us about it. That’s when I knew that I didn’t want to go anywhere locally, so I started researching bigger cities and I talked in. Best plastic surgeons in Columbus and Dr. Donaldson was on that list and I made an appointment and I knew right away from meeting him that he was the one we were going to go to and Chelsea came with me to my consultation. We loved everyone here: Bobbie, the girls at the front desk were amazing, and a week later Chelsea decided that she wanted to do this as well. So she made her consultation and then we actually had our surgery 2 days apart. Whitney did it on June 9th and I did on June 11. So we have increased our best friend history together in the crazy things of what were you going to do with your best friend? Now we’re about a month post OP and I couldn’t be happier. I had a tummy tuck with muscle repair, a breast lift, and Lipo to my flanks and my back. You go in with realistic expectations, but secretly hope for better results and I could never, in my wildest dreams. Imagine that I would get the results that I have. I am so happy and I recommend him and his staff to everyone who wants to hear about it. Yes, we tell everyone whether you want to hear about it or not. It’s a big topic for us. To sum up how happy Whitney was, she texted me when she got home from surgery and said, “My breasts are fire, they are amazing!”. So that gives you everything you need to know. Same thing with me. I had a tummy tuck with a muscle repair. I had massive breasts all over the place. So Dr. Donaldson saved me from that, and I joke that I’m flat chested now, but I’m really not. Our results are just so amazing. So happy with it. The recovery was great. We really didn’t struggle. Not a lot of pain. You have a lot of soreness, tenderness, kind of adjusting back to just walking and getting up with the tummy tuck. But nothing that’s unbearable that you can’t manage after you know three to five days, I think, and I have my three kids, or 6 two and one. And I was able to recover at home with them, so it’s doable no matter what your situation is. The flip side though. I send my children away to my in-laws I have a 6, five and three year old so I did send them away for a week to kind of recover. But either way you do it you can totally do it. They’ve been home after that and through the other steps like I’ve had them at home recovering so you 100% if you’re thinking about it, do it. You will not regret it. There is not one regret that I had. The only thing I would say is I wish I had done it sooner. Yeah, exactly. I would do this 100 times over like yes, so if you’re thinking about it for sure, call Dr. Donaldson, do it. His staff’s amazing, he’s amazing. The COSI Surgical Center that we went to, amazing care, couldn’t be happier. Even my husband was just on and on and on about how great it was. And we drove 2 1/2 hours to get here and we would have drove farther to come see Dr. Donaldson, so make a call schedule appointment. You won’t regret it!
