I am looking to hear from those that had the brazilian butt lift done with Dr. Mendieta. I have been doing research and he appears to be amongst the most experienced out there. Please share your experience and before/after photos if you have had your procedure done by him. Would you recomend him? Do you recomend anyone else instead? How satisifed are you with your results? I want to do this in 3 weeks!I am eating like a pig because he said I needed 5 more pounds. I only weigh 118 now and im 5'1

I used Dr. Gershenbaum in Aventura for my BBL. He is an amazing doctor who does swimsuit models and celebrities. He gave me exactly what I asked for and even more . I am so happy..

Sorry to all the girls that are unhappy :( My PS says that he has worked with Mandieta and uses the same technique. However, he told me is going to be using Vaserlipo on me. Do you know if Mandieta also used that technique during your fat transfers?

How much did you end up spending in total...with all the other things that arent included such as garment and medications, (I dont know what others arent included) And where exactly did you get the liposuction?

but that $100 goes towards the surgery right? How did they treat you post operation? how much did you pay in total? I'm feeling a little wearing because I asked them for an exact price and they said its 11,000 for a bbl...but the price is not set in stone. I have to meet with the surgeon first. THe issue with that is that I'm from New York.

Yes, the money went towards the surgery. $11k they told me was a "special" when I did mine and I was told once the special was over it would be 14k.

oh nevermind...I see it...I think Dr. Mendieta did a really good job with u...which is why I am still considering him. However I really wasn't a fan of his staff. The Patient coordinator was somewhat rude and kept trying to rush me off the phone

They are very friendly once you are in there but I can tell you for sure this office dies not chase patients at all. I tried to negotiate the price and they didn't care I would take my business elsewhere (this is a business for them as ba as it sounds lol) ... It was a take it or leave it situation. With that said, I can see how it's possible they might have blown you off if they don't feel sure you were serious about it ... Hell after I gave my deposit I still had to pay $100 each time I went in to see the doc to ensure I was t the right weight for the surgery! How's that?!

did he at least give u a nice butt (apart from the diff in size) are u happy with the shape, volume, projection etc?? with the diff size, because fat reobsorbs, it may have reobsorbed more on one side than it did on the other?? like bottomup said wed love to see pics so we can give u opinion :)

Andrea did you have smart lipo or traditional lipo?
  • Reply
I had traditional tremecsent lipo, thats the only one u can really safely get on local, because the liquid solution they inject into you is what numbs you. It is a little uncomfortable as that stuff is going in, but after that when they actually do the lipo there is no pain. Its just kinda horrible being awake and mentally crasping this long silver things digging into ur meat lol (sorry! but that really was the worst part). but its done so quickly so u just have to say to urself this is 10 min of my life.. big deal..
And then u walk out of there u are 100% fine. The general gives u alot of grogginess and nausia and makes u out of it for a couple of days but with this u are fine and just experience usual slight soreness and stiffness where they lipod u, but it isnt much more than a strenuos gym work out.

i know how u feel i put off going and getting it fixed up for like 2.5 years coz i just coulnt face the thought of going theough it all again.. i ended up just thinking f it ill do it so i took like 3 weeks off work to recover, etc and was preparing myself mentally for months.. finally when it happened, going to the dentist is worse and i could have gone to work the next day.. and i did bigger areas than what u need.. i did whole upper back and side breats.. and the mess ups on stomach..
the first one is only bad because its ur whole torse, and its sooo aggressive right to ur bone but on ur thighs u already have fat there underneath so its just removing the saddlebaggs he put on, it will be a breeze

I'd pass out I I saw that! I'm toobig of a chicken. I'd rather be out and be sick afterwards lol. You r brave! I hate the recovery of my lipo though. I feel super tight inside and it burns from the inside out. When I stretch I feel like I'm ripping inside and it is awful! Can't wait fir it to be gone!

bottomup-u tripping u dont need to do this again lol
jennieej- im sorry hun but just now if u do do it again it isnt anywhere near as bad, i had lipo recision a few years ago.. and it was nothing compared to the first.. u can have it under local and its over in 10 min and there is barely any recovery down period.. it was only bad the first time coz its so aggressive and close to the bone.. if u just need to correct the saddle bags, and a bit on ur ass,u will be moving and back to normal activites the next day. however he def should not be charging u.. maybe go to a doctor who has less 'hoopla' about him and get it for much cheaper.. lipo for one or two areas without general should b like 800 per area.. but keep ur hear up.. it is reversible.. and even if u dont wana go though it now.. when ur ready u can :)

If I decided to do it again I don't know where I'd get the fat from. Mendieta Sid my arms and upper back, but there is not enough fat in either place to snake the slightest difference. However, whn I went to Dr. Salama's office recently a lady that works there told me they could do the stomach and flanks again but that scares me because taking too much out is dangerous and diesn really look good either because the stomach starts looking fake and like an old lady's skin. Also a second time around there is a lot of scar tissue more than fat and higher risk if dents and bumps. This kin of surgery is the one you got to get right the first darn time! I hate it :(

U did get it right girls stop BUGGINGGGGGGGG omg.. like have a look at all the other photos on here, show me one that looks better than yours :P
and i def would NOT do the parts that have already been done.. u have nothing there it is to the bone already which is more than what most would have done and anymore will give u irregularied like what happened to tara reid.. they have to leave a layer of fat between the skin and where they lipo otherwise u get lumpiness and waves.. the layer of fat is what makes it smooth.. digging into that gives u the dents..
and plus even if u did have extra fat there.. u went to the best sclupting doc for a reason.. do u really wana go over his work???
u paid the 10,500 for that reason.. if u didnt care about the lipo n just wanted a donk u coulda gone to mexico for 3000 :P
I think the only option are arms, thighs knees etc.. anything that wasnt touched... im sure he could get at least 1000-2000 ccs so even if u get 300 to the butt thats alott, u saw the chick on here that got 250 ccs and she got a bootie!! u barely need any ccs coz u already have the volume, shape, and size.. all u need is the shelf and tht wont take much fat at all

Sorry I don't mean to bug you or anyone lol! Ixhavebseen plenty others out there thatclook nicer ;) but thanks for the compliments.The *sculpting master* DID say he would NOT touch me again where e already touched. Since I had my inner thighs done too, all I'm left with is my arms, which are small and skinny and my upper back. Truly there isn't much fat there
at all :( who is the one with only 250 in each cheek n ended up with a bootay?
