My motivation for having the BBL is def the way my clothes fit. I have come to dread shopping and am sick to death of ruffles on the bottom of my dresses and skirts to camouflage my lack of butt. Hell I don't even like ruffles. I am so ready to have this procedure done to increase my body confidence.

Well I am scheduled for my phone consult on...

Well I am scheduled for my phone consult on Thursday, and am so excited to talk to Dr. J and see if the vision of my new booty is achievable. I called yesterday to confirm that they received my photos and to confirm my appointment for consultation no one ever called back to confirm with me. I will call back tomorrow, little nervous since my phone consult was moved up from Nov 12 till Sept. 27. Pray that it happens and on time. Also thanks to all you ladies who have welcomed me to RS your support feels fabulous as their are not alot of people in my life that I am bringing in on this thing with me, they really don't get it. I hear you're fine, don't need it, and you really want to wear a bigger size jeans. So it means alot Thanks!!
OMG.. You are gonna look the bomb! He is great. If I didnt have so much fat, I would of taken out more but I didnt want saggy skin. I will lipo again next year after I work out some more. You are in good hands. Trust me!

I understand that things will work out just as they should no worries! Thanks!

Ok ladies I had my consult today and Shelley at Dr. J's awesome was so amazing I literally didn't even need to talk to Dr. J at all she really answered all my questions this site had me well prepared for the things we discussed price went up by 1000 however I def saw that coming my boyfriend and I had just been discussing the fact that I should get my hips done as well and sure enough she suggested that so I'm doing the hips. I am scheduled for Dec 17 at 1:30 OMG WOOP WOOP!!!! The negative is that I have to drive all the way to GA six and half hours from home just for my pre-op not sure why, just to sign paperwork, and pay give'em my medical clearance forms..hmmm was that yalls experience as well makes no since to me. Thats a day I really don't want to take off from work but she did insist its needed. My preop app. is Nov 27 and the balance is due in full, the first info I was given from the office said balance due, two weeks prior to surgery so they upped it a week. Not to big a deal on that though...

Oh yeah I need to gain around 10- 15lbs shouldn't be a problem, and quit smoking a month before and after no nicotine patches now that is going to be a real struggle...any suggestions..
Lol! @ quitting smoking... I'm having the same inner conflict so believe me I understand how you feel... I guess all u can do is stop buyin them and chew gum or use the electronic cigarettes.. my date is in feb with dr. J and im tryin to quite now
Reply
Thank you!

well I got the paperwork and it says smoke free for 4wks prior and nicotine patch free for 4 weeks, I have an electronic cig and have quit before but this seems like no nicotine and thats gonna be tricky...the gum is a good idea not even thinking to quit until the first of Nov.

I am so excited went to Vitamin World today and got a two months supply of the vitamins that you guys have posted on here the Aranica cream, B12, Vitamin C with rosehips, the other one that promotes healing made from pineapple stems(forgot the name) my room is booked at the Holiday Inn Express in Atlanta (10 miles away from Dr. J office) I choose this one so I could get the 29.00 nightly employee rate!!! Yah!! My mom has agreed ed to come with me I just hope I am able to have my drains removed by Friday so that I don't have to spend Christmas in Georgia, we'll see how that all works out. I have accepted that I may be there for Christmas and not really feeling to guilty about the fact that I just may not be back home with my kids I have always been here for them and I know I can make it up to them with an extra special present.They are def. at the age where I can buy them off lol, (10, 13,14) Any of you ladies have kids around my age and what did you tell them about the surgery.Any guidance will be much appreciated
Question. He went up by a grand... So how much is your surgery going to cost you?
Reply
Im using financing so the price for just the BBL was 9300 vs 8800 for cash. The added 1000 is to get fat grafting to my hips. Total 10300.
Reply
Oh okay. Yes that's what I'm paying 8800

So I had a huge issue come up, I found out the...

So I had a huge issue come up, I found out the division of MedicalFinance called No Patient Left Behind is not accepted at Dr. Jimerson office. The rep I spoke with told me he worked with the office all the time and Dr. J does take MedicalFinace just not this particular program. I have already paid this company 200.00 and can't use this for my surgery. I have been approved with another company and the surgery will happen. I just got robbed. Please avoid these people my rep Damont Carroll. I am planning to call the doctor in the morning and let them know this company is signing people up for financing and keeping the deposit.I doubt I'll get my money back. But this was really stressful any girls going to Atlanta to Dr. J be warned ok.
Ladies I talked to Monica today at Dr. J's office.she was very upset at this situation and said this is not the first time this has happened and that this company should have never enrolled me in that particular program. She actually told me that Dr. J has never accepted it. Contrary to what the rep Damont Carroll said " I'm looking at the provider account and they have used No Patient Left Behind in the past" BS!!! She also said that the scheme is to get people enrolled get the deposit and then they will try to find you another surgeon that will accept it after they increase your rate. So altogether I'm not crazy, at first I thought I may have missed something somewhere but no I was intentionally mislead by the rep. Now at least I have the Dr. office involved and trying to help me get back the deposit and monitor these sleazebags.

You go girl!!! You tell'em.

The $200 is the application fee and is non-refundable. Its shady cus they dont tell you this when you sign up. I lost the processing fee of $14.95. You should have gotten that back once you gave them $200. I have been trying to tell people this company is shady. They are money hungry and prey on those who really want surgery. It's not right and they should be sued or something. I am sorry you lost your money, I pray they go out of business soon.

Well I have been soo crazy busy I'm in a wedding this weekend and I started a new job...I've been trying to keep my eye on RS but haven't updated in quite a while..Nothing much going on just saving money and slightly stressing about the weight gain and quitting smoking. With all thats been going on I have actually lost 2lbs and I need to gain 10-15lbs I need that fat for my booty. Well any way be blessed RS sisters any feedback on weight gain would be appreciated. Also any sisters who are tall and have after pics please let me know there aren't alot of 5'10 on here and I would love how the booty looks on my body type. Thanks!
I was also planning on taking Ensure Plus like CaliBred2GAPeach, and eat lots of peanut butter sandwiches. My husband also mentioned to take protein shakes from the vitamin store.

Hey girl! We're about the same height, I'm 5'9 1/2, I also have to gain 10-15lbs. My surgery date is 11/30/12. I'm shooting for the full 15lbs for optimal results. I've started drinking Ensure plus to help with the weight gain. Good luck on your weight gain. I will be following your post! #TeamJCurves

Ok I am so glad i am on the downhill side of this waiting I have a little over 3 weeks until my Big Booty dreams come true! I have the money for the procedure saved to paid at preop, I've ordered the Make Me Heal vitamins (thanks to all who shared about these) after reading numerous, numerous post the girls who had the smoothest recovery took this kit.. (My opinion) Gaining the weight was a struggle at first but I do believe I can get to the 10lb mark before my surgery date, of course I would love to gain the 15lbs but that may be a stretch for me. I see Dr. J on Monday!!! for my preop appt. Now my goal is to get my bag packed for the trip and I am buying bits and pieces of comfy clothes here and there. Kinda blown that between my exam and the blood work I paid 300.00 for the medical clearance stuff. i was anticipating about half of that cost. But I will remain optimistic I made it this far and will get all I need taken care. Any of you sweet sistas who want to pm me a list of needed items to pack I would appreciate it!! Also I will be adding some more pre op pics for the record the weight I've gained some has went to my booty so its a little bigger but the majority is right on my stomach.
Good luck on everything :) Cant wait to see your results :)

Ok ladies I am so hyped up at this point you don't even know . I have upped my calorie intake to the 3 Ensure Plus a day I should have been drinking all along and now have only 5lbs left to gain!! They really do work if you are consistent! I have tons of supplies, surgery is paid for room and flight booked, my moms ticket purchased and just dropped off my scripts today! I can't believe it is finally so close! I plan on trying to finish all my Christmas shopping this upcoming weekend and pack. The week before my surgery I need to go to work and relax my mind thats about it! I am seriously going to miss my kids and boyfriend like crazy and will not be flying back home till the day after Christmas. I'm sure thats going to be a trip for me but I am determined to make this as positive an event as I can. Any of yall going to be in ATL between 12-17 and 12-26 and want to text, talk or possibly meet up for coffee or something PM me please.Be blessed realsealf sisters~
@ Mommy yeah it will be tough but I'm going get through it! As for the Ensure it does work but at an expense here its 10.00 for a six pack and I need to drink at least 3 a day!! Crazy....

I had my drains removed today and it was painless. I love how dr. J shaped me. I go back and forth from loving my booty to wanting it a little bigger. I didn't realize how much I loved the ass till I got some now I'm being greedy! lol Typical I feel great haven't had any other than water and gatorade the entire time I've been here. (one Auntie Anne lemonade) so I stayed very hydrated. I have been eating three meals daily starting the day after procedure. I was extremely nauseous from the anesthesia and it was the greatest relief when I finally threw up while walking. After that I ate pnut butter crackers. I was in extreme pain the day of and half the next day because I could only take half of the prescribed pain med due my low oxygen level you must have help thats for sure. I did meet up with another real self sista beauty MzC and spent alot of time with her it was fab!! thats about all I can think of for now!
I C alot of ladies on here say they want bigger but please believe your butt is huge like large....I know u have swelling but I think after the sx...It makes ladies think for some reason the butt isn't big....Honestly Very Nice love the way he shaped u #realtalk
