OMG! I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH RUBEN AND IM SOOOO FREAKING EXCITED I SCREAMED AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS! I FEEL LIKE JUMPING ON A TRAMPOLINE AND SCREAMING SOME MORE! HAHAHAHAHAHA OFFICIALLY BOOKED FOR JULY 3, 2012!!
Hello BBL sisters! Before I had kids, I used to have a nice full booty and it was a greattt ASSet. I'm 5'5.5" and was 135-140 before kids. then I gained 60 pounds from my first pregnancy and lost 40 of it from diet and exercise but that crap took me 3 whole years. and as soon as I got down to 160, I got pregnant again. and from my second pregnancy, I went up to a whopping 215 pounds. then i found the HCG DIET. i dropped an amazing 65 pounds in less than a year. It brought back some of my confidence but the depressing part about the HCG diet is that all of the fat from my booty melted away. My hips also went down and so did my thighs.
Im the type that like to have a bigger lower body than my upper body... thick thighs and big butt. its crazy that now my body has been flipped upside down - my lower body is now more narrow than the top of my body and not an hour-glass shape like before.. sigh... So at first i just wanted a tummy tuck/lipo from my stomach and a friend was like "why dont you just get a bbl and use the fat for your butt instead since your butt isnt as big as it used to be"... and so the researching began.
At first, my choice was Dr. Salzhaur in Miami... His website is AMAZING. it was all the pictures that got me sold. At first, Dr. Salama was my second choice because he didnt have as many pictures on his website. I actually flew down to Miami to see Dr. Salzhaur for a consultation and even the girls in his office looked amazing. I booked a rhinoplasty with him and then wanted the BBL with him as well but when i was told it would be an extra $9,000, I had a whole lot of thinking to do. I continued to research Dr. Salama and again, the photos on his website were "ok" ... but thanks to all of you girls on REALSELF who went to Dr. Salama, I was convinced that he is just as good as Dr. Salzhaur (if not, even BETTER).
To the Ladies that have gone to Dr. Salama, you should all consider letting him use your before/after photos on his website because they are absolutely amazing and it was a major factor in helping me choose him. *** And also thanks to his brother RUBEN who has been AMAZING and answered all of my questions through email. if you ask me, i must say that Ruben is a very important factor to Dr. Salama's practice. (Ruben, you should let him read that part so when he gives you a raise, you can reward me with a BMW hahaha jk) but seriously, I have had consultations with other doctors and their staff wasnt as wonderful as Ruben. He is also another reason why I chose Dr. Salama because he is very caring and made me feel comfortable. Others offices, on the other hand, have made me feel like I was just a number.
So now i am 153 pounds- i gained 13 pounds hoping that i would be able to have surgery in May but looks like the next available is in July. I must say i feel soooooo freaking yucky with this extra weight that i worked so hard to get off!! July is so far away! ahhh! and the scary part is that im going to Cali/Vegas on July 20 for my cousin's wedding and im worried that Im going to be so swollen that i wont be able to drop it like its hott lol and then its gonna be hot as hell too in july so im really worried about being extra swollen. I hope there are ways to get the swelling down much faster... any input?
BTW, im having a periareolar lift and augmentation. At first i was told that i would have to have 2 separate surgeries and i was SO DEPRESSED! but since im not having a full masteoplaxy, i should be ok having my periareolar lift. i am currently a full B and will be getting silicone to have a full D. i think around 500cc's. I dont want to look like a porn star but i also want to make sure i get them big enough because all of my friends who have had their boobs done said they wish they would have went bigger. the total cost for my surgery is $9,199. AWESOME DEAL! i am hoping to have at least 1000cc per cheek after absorption and a teeny tiny waist. i will post pre-op photos soon! GO TEAM SALAMA!!!!
