Wow! Where do I begin?! I have always been sooo self-conscious about my booty. Every since I was a young girl, the boys pointed out that while I had plenty of boobs, I had NO butt. I have accelerated in many areas in life - I have degrees, a great career what allows me to travel and explore, and wonderfully supportive friends and family, however, I have never been happy with the shape of my body. I'm not one of the girls who jumped on the booty bandwagon after Kim K and Beyonce' became famous. (NO offense to those that did :) But I say that to say that this has been a life long struggle for me. I am African American and in our community if you don't have booty, you are completely ignored. I am not doing it to get a man, but it would be nice to walk by a man and not feel completely embarrassed when he turns to look at your assets and the look of disappointment on his face when he finds NONE! Awkward.
For many years, I have not wanted to walk in front of people, wear clothes tucked into my pants, and everything I wear has to cover my butt. It's a headache, and I decided that I would finally have done the procedure I have been researching for years! I know everyone has something that they may not be comfortable about and some people may call it crazy, but these people do not have to shop with me, live with me, or try on JEANS with me! So I am putting myself first and doing this for ME!
I do have some fears: 1. Some people say that the pain is intense! 2. Though I'm ready with my response, I'd be lying if I didn't say I was concerned about what people may say. I know a lot of people and do not want my butt to be the talk of the town. 3. Not sitting for weeks! 4. RESULTS! I'm not looking to have a Nicki Minaj butt, but I also don't want to spend $7k and have all of the fat reabsorb! 5. Praying for a speedy recovery with no complications.
Reading the stories of people on this site has been such a help to me, so I cannot help but share my experience with someone who may be considering this procedure as well. I have scheduled my surgery for Mid-December and will keep you all updated on my progress!
I am so nervous and am trying to make sure I have...
