I am having my BBL in Miami, FL in February 2012 with Dr. Pat Pazmino. I'm a nervous wreck! Anyone experienced Dr. Pazmino?

After a few months of deliberation with myself, I decided to take on the project of a BBL!  Working for a hospital, I can obtain a 25% discount wtih the in-house surgeon however despite the $2400 price difference, I decided to go to Dr. Pat Pazmino.  I love his results, the iConsult(s), the staff was awesome to talk to, very informative and make me feel at ease.  Now that the deposit has been made, flight booked and i'm currently searching for hotel/vacation rentals, i'm starting to get a bit nerv'4ous.  I'm so excited that my sister is able to take the trip with me! I am 5'4 and currently weigh 186 lbs.  I purposely gained a few more pounds to be certain that doc has more than enough to give me the 1000cc per cheek that he stated he can apply.  I don't recall at this time how many liters he was going to remove.  I want a small waist and a nice round butt.  My concern is to have some roundness that looks as natural as possible definitely enough to go with the rest of my frame.  I am a 36DD and a size 12.  The plans are as follow:  Scultping - Back Scoop, remove a little fat from the back of my upper thighs (for the butt hangover) :-) LIPO - lower and mid back (i'm hoping he can take some away from my upper back and under my arms in the bra area...), abdomen, love handles and flanks.  Fatt Graft - Adding more to the hips and to the butt to make it much more curvy.  My concern is i don't want a "porno" booty or video vixen booty LOL.  I just want it nice, full, very curvy and NATURAL!  on the other hand i don't want to have to go through all of this and feel like Dr. Pazmino has not placed enough fat into my butt...  I have various pics of my motivation/ideal booty that I will post. My cocerns are:  I don't know what to expect after the surgery...  The ladies at the facilities are saying how several women pain is very tolerable and they offset it with Extra Strength Tylenol along with antibiotics doc prescribes to keep down infection and I have a concern with my fluctuating blood pressure...  I'm prehypertension so it's not out of wack but one minute i'll be at a 120/87 and the next 140/97.  It's a bit irritating b/c I don't want to have to fly all the way out to Florida for doc to say he can't perform the procedure b/c of my blood pressure.  Is this something you all think they can control in less than a 2 week period? These concerns are making a bit nervous which of course will not help the blood pressure issue.  Other than that, I feel i'm healthy and ready to go! Feel free to give me any advise on post care, let me know your experience if you just had the procedure and of course if you are a past patient of Dr. Pazmino, do share!   Feel free to post or email me   Thanks! #ScaredAsHeckYetExcited!!!

I'd recommend you setting up an iconsult. Prices depends on your body and what all you want done.

Hello ladies! I am new to the community of BBL. I am looking to have mine done by Dr. Pazmino in the month of August. I have heard that he is conservative and being that this is my second time trying to get a booty... I really don't have time for conservatism. Does anyone have advice. thanks

@ wbailey I too think that massages are
important I did not get the massages I hear the girls
on this site that has had the massage driving like a week into there surgery n sitting on the bobby
pillow nd I think that it is because they had the massages I didn't start driving till my 21 day of postop I
still feel my butt sore at times .... Yesterday was a day that I was very sore I had to sit on my side so I think they do make a difference

Hi Divaish so today I saw my fifth doctor, Salama, I talked to people in the waiting area and they were all happy but I waited 2.5 hours to see him for 20 minutes. My favorite was Doctor P. because he took sooo long to answer all my questions and actually took the time to explain everything. He also knew much more about my medical condition. He did say he would put drains and that he is does not see massages a must. I do think that massages are super important no? Do you think they helped? I really wonder why he didn't put drains on you. Hmm.. how is your skin feeling these days?

Wow Divaish you look amazing! He really gave you great results! Did you have a lot of scarring and bruising? I heard from a friend that Doctor Mendietta is really rough and gives you bruising even where you didnt do lipo. Since you didnt have drains did you loose less liquid? Or it all went through the areas he put stitches on? I hear from some that they need to lay on diaper pads because they loose so much liquid. Sorry for all those questions I am planning to do this very soon and want to be as informed and ready as possible:-) You must look amazing in jeans!

WbailEy, I did not have any scarring. I did bruise. It went away after a few days. Bruising is very on w/lipo... You WILL bruise :-). It looks worse than what it is. Without the drains I did leak a lot of fluid. I spread out the pads to catch the fluids and had to double up on more than one occasion. My stitches were removed at like day 3. I fill out jeans much better but dresses and high waisted skirts really show off my shape.

Hi girls its been several months after your bbl how are you doing now? I am going for a consult with Pazmino, have seen several doctors but really need one that will listen. I have a tiny frame and its all in the belly area so some curves would be great. Is the recovery period awfull? How many ccs did you put in each cheek? Did you have drains? If you have any fotos would love to see how doctor P works

hi wbailey, my photo for my profile is Dr P work. He's awesome as well as his staff! They still keep in contact with me. I actually spoke to a staff member on yesterday. No drains needed. I think he did 650. The key is sculpting. I went in at 5'5 weighing 185 w/absolutely no butt and those CCs w/sculpting did the work for me!

hi diamondiva. My advice to you will be to have a consult with all the doctors you are interested in, pick your top 3 and drill them. Know how they will handle your surgery "in the event" due to your past medical history first off and know what it is that each is capable of. I know that Salama gives lot of volume. His thing is big bootays LOL. Dr. Pazmino always stess body sculpting then he adds the fat as need be. He's pretty good with the back scoop and sculpting. I picked Pazmino b/c he understood what i wanted, very patient and during ou iconsult,we designed my ideal butt according to what i like. I dont want to be bias wth Dr. Pazmino, b/c he conducted my surgery so do your research. Oh, Dr. Campos come highly recommended by lots of ladies bu I dunno if you want to be that far away from home considering your medical background. Think about it, pray about it and go with the one that you feel led to. Good luck!

Hey, I started sitting on my boppy pillow at week2. I'm going to sit on it up to 6 weeks. I'm actually bathing as we speak. I'm on my knees not directly on my butt.

  • Reply
Thanks Banana. I do have a huge jar of pickles. I'm starting to drink more water and have a watermelon chillin. Ice packs also helped with my swelling. My lower abdomen close to my groin is awoken and more so sore... I think it's b/c my garment loosened up and the support is no longer there...

That's exactly what i was going for. Very natural looking curves... nothing that will make people do a double take like "dangggg!" LOL

sorry wasn't finish... but something that was nice and complimentary to my shape and my life style... i'm a business woman and my soon to be fiance (claiming him in the name of Jesus) and I are very conservative individuals. I just wanted the shape that will allow me to look great in my clothes.... It's been a very long time since I was able to just shop without trying on something b/c I was scared of how something may fit around my butt or waistline. For the first time in years, i feel like I can do that. I'm pretty fresh from my procedure and still healing. Do you have any pics you can share? I would love for us to keep in touch so we can compare our results. I have on this full body garment but can't wait to switch to my Faja. Any reason why you only posted once and never posted pics? Feel free to inbox me if you like. Thanks so much for responding. Regards...

Hi, I was also considering Dr P, but dont want to commit to that price tag. He seem to be excellent with curves. I do not want the video girl bootie either - just a round shapely butt and a smaller waist. Well, I follow your post for updates. Good luck.
