Too Soon?

Well I'm 17, I'll be 18 in Jan. but I've been researching this procedure for at least a year. I'm Mexican, and Caucasian. Unfortunately neither side of my family was blessed with a great butt. I'm 5'2 and 185lbs. That seems like I would look like a complete circle but I like to believe I'm densely packed. I don't have a huge gut, or big flabby thighs. It's all muscle baby. ;D (lol) When I turn 18 I'll be looking into getting consultations. I've never had surgery, or a broken bone so I'm a little apprehensiveness to say the least. With me, when I put my mind to it, it will be done. I tried exercising regularly, and eating right and the weight would come off, but none of my features seemed to accentuate each other. A reason I chose to look into Bella Forma is because you're awake during the procedure, and the Brazilian Lift is what he specializes in. If anyone has any words of wisdom, advice, or has any reviews about Bella Forma and Dr. Janho, it will all be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

P.S - I'll have pictures up soon(:

The 4th was my 18th birthday so I'll be uploading pictures of what I look like now and what I WANT to look like. The only problem I have is not getting support from people. It's something that I'm really passionate about, so I'm not sure whether to get it regardless of what they say, or let their opinions determine my happiness. Never the less. I'm still young, plus I need to save up for it. So I have time to decide. What do you think?

Well I didn't tell anyone but my husband that I was getting this done not even my mother. I knew what I wanted and only my husbands opinion counted. I took only a few days off work and timed everything to my schedule I told my mom 4 weeks later after she came to visit me from Miami she was actually happy for me after she saw me. I didn't want to tell any of my friends or family because I didn't want the negative vibes. If you do this. Do it for you. And just make sure that you select the right Dr for you and that you have a person to help you during ur recovery.

Hi SheaLove... I had my surgery with Dr. Jahno @ Bella Forma 7 weeks ago and I am very happy with his work and the recovery process. My procedure was about 4 hrs and I was awake all the time but don't remember anything. That was one of the reasons I went with Bella Forma for my BBL and also because their specialty is BBL with 3D lipo. And not to forget that the 1st 10 massages are included in the fee and are done in the facility so you are able to see the Dr as often as you need if you have any questions or concern. Give them a call and talk to Maria. she can answer most of your questions and set up your free consult when your ready.

Thank you(: I've tried as many squats and lunges my body could handle and nothing seemed to work. For the results I'm wanting this is becoming to be my one and only option.

Hi Shea -- Welcome to RealSelf! I'm not familiar with Dr. Janho personally but I do know of a few people who had BBL with local anesthetic (here's a list). General anesthetic seems more common though, because it can be a long procedure depending on how many areas the doc needs to lipo.

There's definitely no amount of exercise that will increase your booty much... you can tone and things like that, but as far as size and shape that's down to how much fat you have already. Most BBL docs take from where you have too much fat (usually the love handles or abs) and put it in your butt, so you get a smaller waist in combination with a bigger booty.

Anyway, just wanted to say "Welcome" and let you know you're not alone in your quest. :) Hope to see you around!
