40+ and Going for It! - Atlanta, GA

I like all of you was not blessed in the rear. I was teased my entire life. African Americans women are supposed to have a rear if nothing else...well I want to change that and I am.

I am scheduled for the BBL on 4/28/2011. I appreciate all the tips and advice thus far. I too am traveling for the procedure in the states though. It is reassuring to see the before and after photos. I can only hope I have the same good story.

Headed for ATL tomorrow, surgery scheduled for Thursday. I will keep you guys posted.....let the journey begin.

The first day was the hardest. I had an enormous amount of drainage. The second day I was up and dress and moving around very slowly but no drainage. I am somewhat disappointed as I feel my needs have not been met, but it really is too early to tell. I go to the office for the massage and it is really painful but necessary. The folds of skin hand to be kneeded to prevent permanent crease lines. I have followed many of your instructions, like rolling a towel and sitting on the edge of the toilet seat up , it really works.

Day 4 massage less painful but sleeping is nightmare. After taking off the straight-jacket, I mean compression garment I understand where the discomfort is coming from. I have miminal bruising but lots of swelling. STAY AWAY FROM SALT A FOODS HIGH IN SALT.

The plane ride home was murder. I sat with my purse under my thighs to let my behind hang down around the purse. It worked better than a towel because it was more solid, the towel collapsed.

All in all my Doc was only able to inject 660cc in each buttock. So my results are not going to be huge, but not having any butt at all I guess, it's better than nothing. Dr. Nedra Dodds is very professional however be warned, she does this out of her own office surgery center with no anethesiologist. I experience NO discomfort during the entire procedure. I talked to a couple of girls that had gone to her. I felt I did my homework. It's only 5 days postop I will keep you posted.

Week six and I can see a difference. Not a huge one but a difference. It is still uncomfortable to sit. I can say I'm satisfied so far. Looks like my butt is shifting a bit and settling down. I was nervous but there is definition. I will send photos later.....I have to agree with the other post for Dr. Dodds.So far....so good.
