I have been counting down the days with lipstick on my mirror. Every morning when I wake up, I change the number. Today, It reads 14!
I've read mixed reviews from different people about different Drs. I still feel Dr Lacerna is the one for me.
I will keep everyone updated beginning with my pre-op March 4th. I will share before and after photos as well.
Not really nervous, but very anxious... more
I'll start with the bad. I didn't get to meet Dr. Lacerna until the day of my surgery because my date got pushed back and I came from out of state. I was okay with this though because she had to do reconstructive surgery on a cancer patient. After my surgery I woke up in an immense amount of pain. I was told by one of her nurses to suck it up and stop crying because she was trying to get me... more
I've always felt that my upper body did not match my lower half as far as butt wise. I have large breast and nice thick thighs but no ass to match! This surgery I believe will truly help!! Dr lacerna seems like a great surgeon. I also got approved for their financing program so only 50% will be due at time of surgery instead of the full amount!!!
Think it would be great to meet with... more
Here's the beginning of my story. Today I had a consultation scheduled with Dr. Lacerna and she's probably not making the possible list. I had a 10am appointment and waiting 40 minutes. When I asked at the desk how much longer I could expect to be waiting I was told they didn't know and had a call into the doctor who was on rounds and not there. They said they couldn't tell me. I said... more
Hello RealSelf Family,
I had been stalking this website for a couple of years dreaming about the day that I too would be able to get a BBL. Well that day finally came for me on June 23, 2014 and believe me, this had been the single best thing I have done for myself in years. I searched high and low for the best doctor I could find and decided to go with LA Plastic Surgery in Sarasota, FL. Dr.... more
I had the bbl with smart lipo procedure on Nov.8,2013. I will post pictures and give a full detailed review at a later date. I'm approaching two months out so It might be best if I give the issues that i'm having more time. One thing I like about the procedure that I had, is "No Drains". I'll be more than happy to share my bbl experience with anyone who may be considering having the... more
Ok So I walked into a Colombian restaurant about 3 weeks ago and saw the shape of these women with their small waists and huge behinds and decided that night to get the BBL. My partner will not allow me to travel so I had to find someone local, and after reviewing photos I have decided on Dr. Lacerna. She is from LA so I am confident she has a good handle on this type of procedure. I am... more

I am more than 1 month out from my surgery date and so far I have gained about 10 pounds. My starting weight was about 130lbs and now I am around 141. I am 5'4". I'm also super worried about unwanted health side effects from gaining so much weight. I would hate for any of my abdominal fat gained to be visceral and not subcutaneous and not have enough fat in my midsection to be liposuctioned... more
