I am new to Georgia and have been doing my research on butt augmentation! I cannot wait I am a little disappointed because Dr. J does not have any appointments available for even a consultation until April!! I looked at his website and really liked what I saw. I used to hit the gym faithfully doing squats and everything but it hasn't worked so I have decided to go this route. Can anyone tell me what I should expect after I have this? How long before I look and feel normal and what do you recommend a bbl or implants?

Good luck on your journey girl!. If you have your deposit and all of that ready, inbox me

wow.. You aren't able to get a phone consult until April 2013? Or were you saying thats the next Sx date? either way, be patient yet diligent.. Keep calling and being sweet, someone wont make an appt and maybe you can take their spot, you have to have your finances in order to optimize that kind of timing. Anyways, as far as should you get implants of fat hgrafting DR J is who will make that call. Its hard tell with your pics so far away, you look thin, but I have seen him take fat from thin women on here and build a custom shelf.. lol Stay encouraged things will work out

Yes I thought the same thing when I called to schedule my consult I asked her to repeat herself because I thought she made a mistake when she said April lol..I will keep calling to try and get it moved up. I am fairly thin I am 5'6 and weigh about 145...I have plenty of extra fat in the midsection that Dr. J can use. I am a little nervous about getting implants because I read that you run a higher risk of getting an infection with those but want them because I think they will hold their form longer then just a fat transfer. I will see what Dr. J says when I finally get to speak with him :)

I had my consult today and will be having my surgery on April 15th! There was an opening available so I was able to my initial appointment moved up!! I have paid my deposit so I feel like its real now. Dr. J was very nice as well as his staff they were very patient with me. Thank you Valerie and Shelly inpaticular! After talking with Dr. J I have decided on a tummy tuck and butt augmentation. I'm looking forward to seeing a new me. I think it's going to be a hard recovery being I'm having two things done but I think it will be worth it at least I hope so :)
Hey miss lady!! We need to get each other's info, I am scheduled for April 15 too!! Even though I would like to get it in February, as of right now, April 15th is my day! And what's crazy is that we had the same original consultation date too. My original consultation date was April 10, but I got it moved up to Dec 12, and that's when I put down my deposit and locked in my sx date for April 15th... Wow, what a coincidence...
Reply
Yes it is! I agree we do need to exchange information. PM me and let me know what you did to get your date moved up! I feel like April will be here before we know it.

Yay!!! In right behind you!! May 17th

The time is counting down! 16 weeks and I will have a new body. I am so excited about having this done. I am now making sure I save money so that I am able to pay for my procedure. This is something that I have thought about for a long time and its finally going to happen. I am a little worried about the tummy tuck though I just don't know about the scar that comes with that but hopefully it will be ok...but let the countdown begin!
Hey ladies! I am having sx on April 9th! I will still be lurking around GA when you are having your sx. I am going to stay at the Hyatt near Dr. J's office....

Ok good we need to exchange information before that time so that I can check on you and you can tell me what to prepare for.

If anyone has a SX date in March and would like to move it till April let me know I would love to trade dates with you!

Good morning ladies! I am getting more and more excited because its getting closer and closer to my transformation. I have seen some really good pictures of ladies who have had the procedure recently. I am a little concerned though about how long the new me will last. Has anyone had a bbl at least a year ago or know of someone?
U see the TT pic I just loaded...it's old but I used that gazelle faithfully...it's in the basement but after looking at my old pics I'm back @ it.
Reply
Hey girl, I think it's great that you have the opportunity to have a tummy tuck and butt implants! But having them done at the same time is a togh one? I had both surgery's at seperate times and I'm so glad I did! for my butt implants I laid on my stomach for 7 weeks and never sat that whole time! I could never have laid on my stomach as needed if I had a tummy tuck at the same time? These are 2 major operations and in my opinion should not be done at the same time..Good luck to you!
Reply
Hey Ladyjane I had the same concerns for Dr. J he says I should be able to lay on my side and be ok. I am just getting a fat transfer not implants so maybe that healing process will be a little easier....at least I hope :)

I keep seeing posts from other ladies saying that they are trying to gain weight before their sx. I am 5'6 and weigh about 145.....Dr. J did not say anything to me about gaining weight that makes me nervous....hope I have enough fat to give me a for real booty!! What do you think ladies?

how much is required for a downpayment n what's the total cost for the implants

Hey ladies well as you seen from my previous post...

Hey ladies well as you seen from my previous post that my surgery was moved up so in less then a month I will have a new body and I am so excited. My fiancée has been against it up until recent. I think it was him being insecure and not understanding what it means to me. I think he is finally understanding its for me and not to impress anyone else. I almost feel like now he is starting to get excited about it to. It feels so much better now that he is finally with me on this. I was going to go start buying stuff yesterday but then decided to wait till after my preop on the 8th call me crazy for procrastinating but I will just feel more comfortable then. I feel like based on some of the other blogs not buying enough but I don't want to spend unnecessary money on things I may not use... Pray for me along the way ladies as I will for you. Question...have u all been able to get back into your pants after the sx?

Pray for me ladies I have my medical clearance...

Pray for me ladies I have my medical clearance appointment in the morning. I hope I am healthy enough.
Time has flew by hasn't it? And for you the flood gates of favor have opened to get you to the front of the line. I'm excited. I took my medical clearance today Hopefully everything is cool. I was only concerned bc I have even working so hard this week and I have had very little rest. Like 3 hours a night kind of rest. Lol. Anyways I feel great jut Sleepy. The blood work come back by next week and since I'm a thick girl they did the EKG just to make sure he didn't request it later. It will go we'll for u. They draw enough blood just stay hydrated. Super excited its almost our turn.
Reply
3 hours a night!! That is terrible you need some rest. Everything will go well for you to we are getting ready to take it to the next level. Today was a rough day at work for me and I wanted so bad to come home and have a glass of wine but I was afraid that it might interfere with my blood work tomorrow lol...
Reply
Lol... You too!!! I went to grab me another fresh bottle but I had to get real and Know I needed that blood work right. Smh!! Trust... I understand. Lol. It will be alright thou. So glad to eat your babe is on board now. That support will help.

I am leaving my primary care Dr's office now just got my blood work done for my medical clearance. There really was nothing to it they asked me a few questions, checked my blood pressure, my weight and drew my blood. I have been eating like a pig and still weigh the same. I am 5'6 and weigh between 145-150 I need to gain about 15-20lbs if I want 1000cc's according to Dr J but doesn't look like that's going to happen oh well I'm sure he will still be able to have me looking good. My PC asked me what type of surgery I was having then asked me 100 questions about it....I was a little embarrassed lol anyway hopefully my bloodwork comes back fine...now off to call Dr J's office so I can make my final payment on my surgery!! Again So Excited!
Congratulations hon, i wish u all the best with ur sx and i will keep u in my prayers and hope that ur bloodworks and everything else will be ok....GL

YAY! Vote for Mogirl :) Sorry to hear you are not packing on the weight. That really sucks. I think about food and instantly gain five lbs :( The good news is Dr. J's 850cc's look like 1000cc's +. So excited for you...

I went to 2 different Walgreens and Walmart to find a female urinal...I finally found one they have them for men everywhere but not women...also ladies is there a specific type of soap that I will need or just any antibacterial soap?? I am trying to get the last of the things I need.
Good Luck with sx!!!! I know u ready, I'm ready and I got about 6 more months to go. I pray all goes well for u.... Cant wait to see your results!!!

Thank you! The 6 months will go by fast that's how long I had to wait to get my sx after I made the appointment and I can't believe its here already.

Ok ladies my time is almost here. My fiancé came back in town so he could go to sx with me and one of my girlfriends will be in town tomorrow. I am getting really nervous. I know I should be excited but I have so many things running through my mind....I just pray that the healing process is not that bad and that I get great results.
You could have bought a cheap plastic bottle or picture to pee in. That's what I used because you want be able to sit down. You will be standing for about 5 days. any antibacterial soap will do. Have alot of water, juice, and gaterade or protein shakes. I drank over 130 to 140 oz per day!!!!

I made it! I'm not going to lie ladies this pain is no joke yesterday right after surgery my ass hurt like a mother! My butt has stopped hurting but my stomach is....it's the getting up and down part. Thank God I have some help here. I do not think I could do it alone. I haven't really seen my butt yet because its covered in pads and gauze...Dr. J put 800 cc's in my butt and 200 cc's in each hip he took out 3200 cc's of fat. So I'm sure I will be happy once I see it...I will take pics tomorrow when I'm able to take my garment off...Thank you ladies for all of your thoughts and prayers.

I just measured my booty and it is 44 inches!...

I just measured my booty and it is 44 inches! Today I am 8 days post op..I feel and look very swollen so I am sure I will loose a little bit of it but hopefully not much. I have one more week before I go back to work so I am going to try very hard this week to get myself prepared for that. I went in yesterday for my post op appointment I was so happy because they were taking my drains out until one got stuck! It hurts like hell!! If it wasn't for that I don't think I would have pain anymore just extreme discomfort I am going back in on Monday and Dr. J is going to remove it I cannot wait. I will finally feel like I am on the road to recovery when that happens. I would recommend ladies that you listen to them about the foods you should eat! I have not been eating correctly and I believe that is part of the reason why I am so swollen today also it is very important that you get up and walk around trust me I know its painful but your body does get very stiff! Thank you ladies for all of your prayers and support! Hope everyone has a Blessed Easter!!
I'm soo jealous!!

I have never had someone walk behind me and say "damn" lol.... Anyway I felt so good in my clothes because it made me feel like the total package...I have the top, I think I'm pretty but I have never had the bottom. I LOVE IT!
Sounds like you had a fun filled nite you should had 3 drinks one in each hand and another to sit on top that big bootay lol....from the looks of it you wouldn't have no problems carrying it back there enjoy I can't wait till its my time happy healing

Think I should wait to sit?

Hey my RS ladies...it has been 9 weeks now and 1 day..I love my results! Dr. J has my body looking lovely and very proportionate....I still have not sat down without my boppy pillow but I'm thinking its about time...what do you all think?? When do you ladies who have already had a bbl start sitting and did it effect your results at all?
Oh, and I start sitting after week three and had no volume lost. I think you should be fine, but the longer you wait it out I think the better. At some point it does not matter though because the fat is settled in and not going anywhere!
Reply
Looking good! How did you sleep hun! Im getting the same thing also, did you just sleep on your back?
Reply
I slept on my knees bent over an ottoman for several weeks because I had fat grafted to my hips and butt and didnt want to put any pressure on them... I finally figured out a way to sleep on my side so that it didn't compromise my hips...I will say it was pure hell at 1st...you are having the same thing done are you going for a round 2?
