Hi this is my first time posting on here. But I have a question for anyone who has had the BBL done or anyone who can answer this. My question is have you or can you have a BBL after you have had Hydrogel injections. I had it done nearly a year ago and I have not had any complications at all it feels natural but I noticed that its not as big as it was. I am scheduled for a consultation in Aug 2013 which sucks because I want it done sooner. But if someone can answer that from experience please do. #Don'tJudgeMe

Hi Dallas,

Welcome and thanks for sharing your journey with us.

There is currently no filler, which is FDA approved for use in the buttocks, so I would definitely get a doctors opinion on this. Some doctors may not be inclined to perform this type of procedure on someone who has had Hydrogel injected.

You can use our Ask a Doctor service. Just click the link, ask your question and usually wihtin 24-48 hours, board certified surgeons will respond.

Hope this helps and please do keep us updated with your progress!

Sooo I decided to take some pre-op pics and I really see how much weight I've gain in the past 4 years mainly because I quit smoking......yay me! I tell you one thing mirrors sure do play tricks on you lol! Those pics make me want to have the BBL done even more. I have gained 50lbs in 4yrs shame on me. I really have to go into overdrive to lose weight to get the best results. I think I want to try the HCG diet plan. Has anyone tried it before if so let me know. I will post pre-op pics soon.

Hey my BBL sisters! I think I'm addicted to asses...

Hey my BBL sisters! I think I'm addicted to asses lol or shall I say having a big ass. I need this sx like I need air. I realized I never posted my measurements.

Pre-op measurements:
Height: 5'10
Weight: 220 lbs.
Bust: 38DD
Natural waist: 40"
Hips: 47"

I'm a tall girl and most of weight is in my midsection....damn those 50lbs I gained! My pics makes me look much bigger than in person. When ever I tell somebody my weight they never believe me I guess because of my height. They may not see it but I sure do see it and feel it. I need to get back how I use to be so that's why I have started this journey. I have started my weight loss regimen while im working on getting an earlier date...trust me I'm doing my due diligence by calling constantly other than just bring placed on the cancellation list cause who knows how long that could take and I want/need it NOW. I need this stomach and back rolls gone!
good luck and im sure you'll get a sooner date..I've seen a few ladies luck up

Im so confused right now I don't know if I wanna get a BBL or just aggressive lipo to abs, flanks, upper&lower bra roll and arms. Im undecided now because I already measure at 47" hips and I know once he get all this extra damn fat from my mid-section it'll look much bigger which I won't mind lol. Plus im not even sure he'll want to do the grafting to my butt because I had hydro gel a year ago which I shouldve just did the BBL then dont get me wrong I loved the way my butt looked after I got it but I much rather my own fat besides I have plenty of it.. We'll just have to wait and see huh. All I know is I want it done like yesterday. What yall think? I want my ass to look like MzChicago azz he did the damn thang on her! Ima upload some better pre-op pics cuz u cant really see how much butt I have now.

So I decided or I am very much considering just...

So I decided or I am very much considering just doing aggressive lipo, so I decided to call and get the quote for that and see how much I would have to pay up front because I was approved for the $5000 financing and was quoted $7300 for lipo of abdomen, upper and lower bra roll, and love handles which apparently are not included with abdominal lipo now it's considered a separate area now. Mind you know that was included in the price of $4000 for lipo to the abdomen, I also started I wanted to add my arms which I knew was a separate area for $900 wrong it's now $1500 for arms because wait..wait for it theres a flipping fee associated with doing the arms. Like WTH! Which brings the total to $8200...bull s**t. I know he's damn good at what he.does that's why I chose him but this is ridiculous. I think I'm just going to have to find another PS that's just as good but not as expensive.

I opting for just lipo because I already measure at 47" already...if anybody had any suggestions on good PS stateside let me know please I don't want the hassle of going out of the country if I don't need to.

I know there's other great surgeons out there but when you want what you want nothing else will feel as good. I have some serious thinking to do before the 1st of Feb when them damn prices get even more ridiculous. I just not sure any other Dr wont give me what I'm looking for(my opinion).
May i ask any an everybody how to finance?? im new to this and want an need some info soooo please help me out

Hey sherita91138 he has 3 companies you can try to finance thru one being in house financing but from what I'm told the in house financing will be phased out Feb 1st along with the price increase but if you put your $500 deposit down before then you can still get the current rates and use the financing. Hopes this helps!

Hey hun...you are right about Dr.Js prices. He done got Hollywood on us lol but ive had a consultation with Dr.Perry and he is such a dope guy. Down to earth and he keeps it real as far as expectations go. I told him I want aggressive lipo and a 1500ccs of ass and hes gonna give it to me in December. Check him out when ever you get the chance. Im 5"11, 220 and I also was a smoker and a new college student so I know how those extra pounds go ughhhlol anyway i hope you find a great doctor and ill be following your results hun :)

So my consult went very well the staff is great every last one of them. And Monica's ass is niceeee! I'm not getting the BBL just Lipo to the abdomen, flanks and bra roll he asked have I considered a tummy tuck cuz he thinks I mAy have loose skin but I told him I really don't want one I don't want the scar he didn't suggest I lose any weight but I am because I hope I don't have the loose skin. I've already lose 12lbs and I asked If I cld do the HCG and was told yeah but I shld do it for only 3 wks because I'm on the fast track list and I can't have any dietary supplements in ur system no more than 4 wks before surgery so I might not do it just in case they call soon and I don't want to chance it. I also saw 2 ladies in there who was there got surgery but I didn't get a chance to get their names but I wish them happy healing maybe they'll post that they had surgery today if they're real self members.
I was wondering if u found anyone tht had butt injections previously nd went on to hav a successful bbl? I had injections n 2010 no problems no complications butt is still soft still moves nd all of it is still here but I am schedule for full lipo nd bbl n may. Surgeon says no prob but I wanna reader c ppl who actually had it done. R u still only getting lipo? Imo there r other surgeons who have better aggressive lipo skills thn Jimerson. More like salama. Jimersons lipo looks as if he's a bit conservative nd a lot of his clients still look boxy after sx...I also kno this is due in part to wht ppl ask for nd pay for. Ppl may not hav the money to pay an extra 1500 for arms nd another for the upper back. Anyway look forward to hearing from u nd good luck with ur sx hun

Day 1 feeling really good just a lil sore on lower abdomen. He took out the entire 5000cc's I will say this in recovery I thought I was going to pass out and vomit I wasn't in pain so much but sore as hell. They had to put the lil patch behind my ear for nausea. I can see my waist again I see a big difference already even tho I'm only swollen in my lower abdomen probably becuz they put me in a corset. I'm staying hydrated and walking which is very important. It sucks he put 1 drain on me which isn't draining much. I'll post pics soon!

I have no regrets at all I'm happy with my results and I know it's only going to get better. I'm still swollen mainly on the lower abdomen and flanks. I'm been drinking water a lot and walking around the house. To keep from getting those creases I placed 2 hand towels across the width of my back. Not in much pain at all just sore and stiff when I first get up but after 5min it's better. I also have my board in the front of me. I want this darn drain out because I'm barely draining. Ok I'll post these pics cuz I'm getting sleepy now. P.S. I enjoyed having that garment off for an hour even though its not uncomfortable like I thought it would be. I can't get my nipple rings back in

This burning stinging sensation is just driving me crazy I need to find something that helps with that. And these pain meds got me talkn out my head they have me so sleepy I can hear myself snore and I don't snore when I sleep. He was very aggressive with the Lipo because I'm sore as hell and my right side mainly the flank area is numb and the top of ass is hard but I continue to massage myself everyday all day. I'll take more pics next time I take my garment off for an hour.
Can you explain the burning sensation...I hear about it alot but I can't imagine what the feeling would compare to...like alcohol on cut type burning?

Yep that's how I'll explain it alcohol on a cut its not a good feeling at all. I mainly feel it when I'm getting up or laying back down. It's very annoying I can't wait for that to be over with.

Other than that healing is going great and that horrible stinging,burning, ripped feeling on my right side

Tried to go back to work today and I was sooo dizzy and nausea and my stomach felt like it was going to burst cuz it felt so tight I guess from sitting. My coworkers could tell I wasn't 100% so I left after lunch. I'm adding some pics I'm not happy with the results thus far at first I saw a difference but now it just looks the same idk but tomorrow I'll ask Dr. J and if this is the end result then he'll be doing a revision please believe it!!! I also think I have a seroma. What's y'all opinion?
Girlfriend, why are you trying to be returning to work so soon??? Aren't you less than a week out? Chile, slowww down and do your recovery the right way. Are you still wearing your compression garment to hold the swelling down? Good that your post op is tomorrow. I'm praying that all is well, and no seroma is present. Try best as you can to get rest.

Hey love. I did end up finding a cpl people who had injections nd had a bbl done afterwards. There's also a young lady I spoke to on here who had a consult with Jimerson nd he told her 80% of his clients had had some sort of illegal butt augmentations done. Nd tht she wld need to sign a release tht if anything happens or her ass falls of as a result of the procedure he's not responsible. As far as ur results at this moment try not to let thm discourage u too much. Ur shape has not yet taken effect as u r extremely swollen nd constipated. U say u weren't draining much, nd Ik this isn't a practice of us drs so soon after sx, but u may need a massage to release sum of tht fluid before ur drain is removed. He said he removed 5000 cc from ur midsection??? It may b the swelling but it doesn't look like he removed 5 liters. But it's possible. Who knows wht ur results will look like in the end bc ur still early post op but I wld recommend a ps overseas to do aggressive lipo on u to give u the look u r going for. Jimerson does not do aggressive lipo...well IMO. Good luck my dear. I hope everything turns around for u. Xoxo

Went for my 1wk post op follow up I got there 15 mins late and I'm never late my damn homegirl moving all slow this morning I was about to leave that hefa. I must say every time I go to Dr. J office I wish I would have decided to do the bbl cuz the asses just look amazing lol. I might do it next year who knows but I got the drain taken out by Kim the nurse cuz he was back in sx but it was cool cuz I wanted that ish out ASAP! She said I still had a lot of swelling no seroma which I thought I had but no thank u Lord! She took more pics and said by my 6wk follow up I should she a big improvement ( I better lol). Also that 3hr drive there and 3hr back has me extra swollen from sitting so long plus this darn corset compression garment cuts the heck outta my lower waist I will be purchasing a full garment ASAP from eBay where they are dirt cheap lipoexpress garments on there for $25 can't beat that but good luck finding anything bigger than an 2xs or xs I did see a couple but they were of other brands I'm not sure of. That's it for now! Oh yeah I finally went and got some arnica gel for the swelling hope it works let me know if anybody has used it and it work.

I feel like my results will be no way near what I expected I know im still swollen right now and maybe this is normal to feel like this but I feel that with 5000ccs taken out of my entire midsection including bra rolls even with swelling I should see a hell of a difference and I don't. I guess I'll have to wait it out if not ill be going to see salama or perry for some good ole aggressive Lipo!!!!!

I feel soooo much better now if it wasn't cause of that stupid drain I think I would've been felt some type of relief. As instructed I didn't shower for risk of infection so I just washed up which took forever cuz I wanted to feel clean I wasn't going to chance getting staph again which I had a lil over a year ago from a abcess which ended up with MRSA when they excised it and I ended up on the hospital with a 3in wide 1 1/2in deep hole at my bikini line and was pumped full antibiotics for 3 days straight and anyone that came in my hospital room had to suit up so I wasn't going to risk it. But anyways I waited to 48 hrs after my drain was removed so the hole could close and let me tell u that shower felt like heaven and I took that time to massage myself til I couldn't take it anymore well the water ran cold cuz I was in there so longggg lol, but I was able to get out all those hard spots and it looks like alot of the swelling has gone down too so that's a plus wish it was all gone but I'll take what I can get hell I was even able to bend over without screaming ouch! Shit I think I might do this 3 times a day lmao! DAMN I FEEL GOOD!!!!!!
yeah I had almost 5ooo cc's out as well and I am not happy with the arm and thigh lipo but fuck the pain and tightness in all the lipo'd areas is the worst. Like ropes made of metal under my skin and I've been getting the damn massages too!
Reply
Haha! Your shower story is funny but I find it's true for me too. When I workout too hard and the next day I'm sore, it only gets better after I have a nice shower and massage away all the pain. I'm sure it'll only get better and better.

Hopefully not I was praying that Lipo alone would do the trick maybe I would luck up like some of these ladies have after the dr have suggested a tt but stomach became flat after lipo.

I am sooo disappointed right now I seriously feel like crying and I'm not a crier at all I am completely unsatisfied with my results yeah yeah I know our bodies change day by day swelling goes down yada yada but I honestly feel as if I should see some type of improvement even with swelling I should be able to some difference and I don't. Only dn difference I see is swelling over the damn fat I already had seriously Dr. J has to fix this or refund me my damn money. He's a great PS and by no means is he perfect but damn something has to give. I've done everything as a patient that I was instructed to do post op and it sucks to still look the same. I've added some more pics Monday I'll be 2 wks post op so u tell me if you notice a difference!!

I'm sooo pissed I dropped $5800 and I look the same I will be calling Dr. J come Monday morning.

I mad I can't get my damn nipples rings back in hopefully my navel hole hasn't closed the steri strip finally came off well I peeled it off.
To be honest, for BBL in the US $5,800 is a very very low price! I was surprised when you listed all the lipo you were expecting. I really don't think you were getting the full attention to get the results you need. I also think you'll probably be seeing a LOT of improvement after a few more weeks when you're not swollen anymore. I do see some difference, honestly! I wouldn't say it if I didn't. But if I were you, I'd be planning for a second round... I'm so sorry you're not happy, Honey, but it'll get better I'm sure of it. The rolls in your back are dramatically reduced. Make sure you keep wearing your compression garment for 12+ hours a day so you can train your body into your new shape. Praying for you.
Reply
Thanks BBLDollie I wear this garment all day long I even hate taking it off for the 1 hr becuz it feels so funny do I usually on have it off for maybe 30 min. Oh yeah and I only had lipo I didn't get a bbl the $5800 was for lipo of my entire abdomen,flanks and bra roll. I'm just hoping to see some results that I can feel good about cuz at this point I'm wishing I would've chosen another dr don't get me wrong I still like dr. J but I just don't know if he was aggressive enough even with him removing 5000ccs

I notice yesterday that my v jayjay was gettin swollen it has never done this before. Should I be worried? I also noticed that yesterday I took my garment off and machine washed and put it in the dryer( I usually hand wash & air dry) that it was way tighter than usual and I almost couldn't breath last night while I slept my rib cage couldn't expand it was torture but I was not taking off this garment. But this swelling in my V is making me look like I have a pouch down there lol hope it goes away any suggestions welcome!

All it takes is for me to walk down the stairs to my car and I start swelling again,smh! After the swelling subsiding over night and I start to slightly notice some difference and I become all smiles then I leave out the house and bam I start to feel my stomach tighting because of swelling and boom I'm looking like I'm pregnant or something lol! If only the swelling was completely gone I'd be happy dammit. Wish it was a magic pill and it'll be gone but I guess it comes with the territory. Don't mind me I'm just venting cuz I'm sitting here at my desk and my stomach tight as shit and this darn compression vest is riding up in the back. I also noticed that when I do swell & tighten up I seem more numb then usual.
the swelling could be a result of sitting and the vest pushing all the extra fluid into that space whilst in the sitting position perhaps. are you using a boppy pillow or anything when you sit? My ass has gone down a lot. This surgery is a sham I think.

How's your swelling hun? Did you try the pad and some panties to help put pressure on your swollen lips? I hope it helped. I feel like swollen vagina would drive me crazy more than stiffness/pain generally in lipo-ed areas. Happy healing!

Yeah it helped but this darn swelling around my abdomen just won't go away I guess I have no choice but to wait it out.

Adding some new pics I took this morning still swollen but not as much as I usually get I couldn't sleep last night so I took that devil garment off and put on a shaping garment I had before sx and I felt like somebody was sitting on my chest I've notice that at night now it feels very difficult to breath anyone else having this issue? Here's some pics I can see a lil difference. I'm 2wks 1day post op I wasn't as swollen this morning but I see sum differences and I also think that at the time I should be much smaller in the waist after 5000ccs out just in the midsection but I'm not gonna stress it.

Here's some pics I took this morning while I wasn't in swell hell swollen but not swell hell lol. I slept in a shape wear that I had before sx becuz lately I can't breath at night seems like something is pressed down on me is anyone else having this issue? But anyways I wasn't swelling crazy when I woke up but as I write this I'm swollen like crazy! I did see a lil difference just a Lillie but at 2wks 1day I should see a hellava lot of difference even with swelling but I'm not gonna sweat it if need be I'll get a revision of lipo so he betta be ready to do it for free!!!!! Here's pics

From what I can see there is a slight but not dramatic difference in your before and after abdomen shots. Do you think it was due to the fact that Dr. J can only remove a certain amount of fat during the procedure? Did he recommend a TT for you? I know you did not have one but I am just curious what you wanted your stomach to look like. Did you show his a stomach wish pic? I hope your swelling goes down and that you start to like your results more. I understand your frustration.
Reply
Hey Bootywhereyouat he did recommend a TT but he said without it I would possibly have loose skin. But I didn't want it not ready to deal with the scar I guess but he took out the entire limit allowed by law which was 5000ccs I just pray that it goes do a lot more which I'm sure it will but its taking forever. I would've thought by now I would just have occasional swelling but no it's all the time I know everybody's body is different but I can't say I've seen anyone on here that at this time in their healing process that they haven't seen a big difference in their before & after. Idk I just want the swelling gone.

There's this hard spot in my abs and its shaped just like the board and I try to massage it out but it's not helping I'm almost sure it's scar tissue and maybe it's this way becuz I slept with the board on and I laid on my stomach hoping it would flatten my tummy but nottt only cause this issue. Has anyone else had this issue if so how did you fix it.
I definitely won't be wearing that board anymore
Reply
Yes it does... I have the board from lipoexpress I ordered it a month before my sx I thought it would be good enough although when I got it I had to ask some of the ladies on here if theirs was this small it's shaped like a figure 8. But when I get in the shower I do massage that area it helps a lil but but not much it really helps with the swelling more.
Reply
It is weird bcuz the board I had first was not like lipoexpress or Ann michell board, think it is like one salama gives his patients but I can't find it anywhere.

I am at the point where I think I have wasted my damn money now I have to look for a Dr. to give me the results I want hopefully scar tissue won't effect that!!! Pissed! Even tho I swollen I feel that it's not so much swelling that my shape has changed drastically and I really feel must of all these damn love handles are not going anywhere unless I go for more lipo.
For all tht $ I swear Jimerson needs his ass slapped. Smdh. Get on the yily boat babe. She will take care of u. Feel better boo.
Reply
I just wanted to tell you there is another BBL sis her name is candilious, she only had lipo on her tummy and now it is so flat....on another note she was bigger than you and now her waist is tiny and small, that goes to show that Dr. J probably didn't take out that much....Hope it gets better hun..
Reply
Hey Dallas78 I think Dr.J should give you a refund or do a round 2 for free. I agree with some of the ladies that there really is no difference. I'm confused because you really were not that big to begin with. Did he take anything out??? I'm so concerned to go with him, I'm thinking I should go to to DR to Yily to sculpt me but I already paid my $500 deposit and scheduled after care and everything. Maybe you still are swollen but I think you should still be smaller by now. I refuse to believe he took out the max in you. I'm sorry for venting on your post but I'm so angry for you that you feel you wasted you money. I hope it gets better.

I was thinking of ditching this annoying garment for the day seeing is not doing any good anyways. What y'all think? Only thing is it feels super crazy without it plus my skin feels sensitive. Should I or shouldn't I that is the question...hummm!

Went out without my garment on and it was cool at first but after a while my abs started feeling super sensitive. I also noticed yesterday that I'm starting to get a crease across my stomach I'm thinkn it's from when I'm at work sitting all darn day and this garment cutting into my stomach making it look as if I'm getting a roll at the top of my stomach. I'll take a pic later. But I came home and hurry up and put that garment and board back on.

Oh yeah and my ex sister in law who went with for sx says she sees a difference it must look smaller in person i don't see it but anyways.
Im team salama I didn't put that in my comment

I'm sorry your results isn't exactly what you wanted I was first team jimerson but I decided to switch bc the price and his lipo results to me is pretty pleasingI would call him back to ask about an revision good luck boo ;)
Reply
Girl I'm sorry for your unhappiness with your results I would keep a photo diary of your recovery and express your concerns he should do a free revision after 6 months if it does not get better he is a good surgeon I'm sure he stands by his work, I know dr Salama will do a free revision (you have to only pay for anesthesia, Because it's a separate person) I have noticed dr j is great with bbl with tt but not that aggressive with lipo

So I decided I wasn't going to stick it out in that horrible garment and I couldn't wait for one to be shipped to me so I went on the hunt for one even tho there are no stores here that sell the good good ones but I found an alternative I happen to go in Burlington and found a vest (similar to the one Dr J put me in just in black) and a waist cincher. The vest I was able to get a small & the waist cincher I got a medium no small but I made it work and low and behold after I squeezed my self into them and can barely breath when lay down I can see a difference I think a couple more weeks of this and I just might be able to live with my results of course I'm still going for a round 2 later but I'll see how this plays out first. I'll post some pics when I get a chance.
Hang in there, i pray you get the results you're looking for!!!

Sounds good! I think if you are dedicated to wearing the garments you can expect to see some really nice results. Hang on there!

I am so sick of the swelling the only time I'm not...

I am so sick of the swelling the only time I'm not swelling like crazy is in the mornings I have hope then. As soon as I get to work and sit at my desk maybe 2 hrs in I start swelling so I try to get up every so often and walk around because it hurts I can actually feel my sides and stomach getting bigger but then I sit back down cuz I'm such a work-a-holic and the ish gets worst & the damn waist cincher starts cutting into my sides. If I would have known I was going to swell like this I would've dropped that $400 for the HCG diet and prayed for the best maybe dropping 30lbs I would've lost this horrible back fat and big gut!!! Any suggestions I'm game to try I even put cold compresses on a damn near freeze myself lol. I have hella compression on when I'm home 3garments to be exact the one dr. J put me in & under that a medium waist cincher & over the lipoexpress garment a small vest hell I can barely breath now if I lay dwn somebody betta call 911 as long as I'm sitting propped up or str8 up its not as bad.

I wish I wasnt having such a hard recovery.
I hope your lipo results turn out better than mine. I am doing a second bbl with dr. Salama. Dr.J's support staff wont return my calls or emails.

Here's some updated pics it looks good when it first take the garment off in the morning but it starts to swell as soon as I get to water and sit down why I don't know. I only drink water no sodas haven't since last year every blue moon I'll drink a cup of coffee just to wake me up or I'll drink OJ with breakfast depending on what I have I'm a vegetarian so I don't eat meat or fried foods I have no idea why I swell like crazy but hopefully it'll all be over soon.

Happy healing to my bbl sisters and good luck to those preparing to have sx!!!

Today makes 5wks post-op!! Time flies shessh! I only wish I could've stayed home for the entire first 6-8wks I probably could've gotten this swelling to completely go away but it's hard because I swelling when I sitting down at work that's crazy huh! But if I was home I can just chill and lay down most of the day lol of course while the kids are at school but the more I relax the less I swell. I have to admit its gotten better not the results I was hoping for but ima keep working on it.
Its getting better girl, stick to the regimen you have to keep more and more compression on it it will go down even more your only 5 weeks
Reply
Dallas78, do you have the squeem waist cincher? I had over 6000cc removed from my abdomen, love handles, lower back in Nov 12. I had lipo on a Friday and returned to work the following Monday. I sit at work, but YES the swelling was crazy. The squeem was a lifesaver when it came to controlling the swelling while at work. I definitely see a big improvement in your last pic. You look great!
Reply
Shot I wish he would've removed 6000ccs but the state limit is 5000cc. I think I would be much happier about theses love handles and my left side is bigger than the right

These darn garments so tight I think I've shifted my ribs and moved my organs lol. Half the time I can barely breath especially when I'm laying down but ima insure the discomfort and sometimes pain in my back to get the results I want. I gotta say the lipo to the bra roll was a waste of money shit still look the same Dr J needs a better approach when it comes to that maybe he should start going in from the back directly near the bra roll like Perry & Salama does whom which I think I should've went with one if them their lipo is more aggressive then his especially when it comes to the abdomen & back area now don't get me wrong he gives a beautiful ass. I wish I could combine the 3 of them and chi that would be the ultimate Dr.
The smaller my waist appears the bigger my breast looks which I don't like the sit up they don't sag or anything I could go without a bra I want to go smaller this too much breast for my taste I want to be a small C cup even tho they don't look big to other people I don't like them but anyways that's a whole other story lol. I go for my 6 wk post op appt on May 15 let's see what he has to say about my concerns I think he needs to give me a revision like for real I see improvement but for $5800 I should have a hella flat stomach and my left side is bigger than the right and when I get super swollen from sitting you can really notice it but we'll see I'll keep y'all posted.
Hi Dallas78 I read some place that it takes longer healing after a surgery for people that are vegetarians. Maybe ask Dr J about this.
Reply
I am vegetarian also. At four month post op I think it myb slower for us. Dallas the back/bra roll area is very difficult area bcuz of the muscle n fibrous tissue n fat. I think he shldnt charge for tht if he can't do it well. Myb a Diane 2465 vest will help. I wore it over my squeem.

Baby let me tell you I went to a cookout yesterday...

Baby let me tell you I went to a cookout yesterday honey I had my body con skirt on and a cute top and all eyes was on me the moment I stepped out the door at first I had my waist cincher on but then about an 1 before I was on my way to the cookout I decided to see how I would feel and how long I could go without it so I ditched it. My family who hadnt seen me but 1 time since I had the sx thought I had gotten more injections (if you don't already know I had them over a year ago) so I was like naw I didn't get anymore (which I didn't) my waist is just smaller and it makes my butt look bigger so I'm glad I ditched the waist cincher cuz I lifted my shirt to show them my stomach and my hating ass cousin was like oh so ur Facebook pics aren't deceiving u are smaller yeah the hefa made that remark trying to be funny as if she was talking about somebody else but what she didn't realize was the 1 time she saw me after sx I was swollen. But she's know to be a hater but I shut her as down yesterday but anyways unimportant!!! But all I could see was eyes men and women.
But after around 3 hrs without the garment I started to swell not bad but it gave me that funny tingling feeling and it noticed that I started to get a crease where my skirt was laying on my stomach cuz it's kinda high waist well when it starts to ride up. I love them skirts tho I got them from Forever 21 and they are crazy hott and are only $8 for the long ones which come to the knee and $6.80 for the mini ones I'll post a pic. Trust all you big booty babes will love them especially with them tiny waists.

Here's a pic of the skirt I had on well same skirt different color I have 3 I love them so much lol. I didn't take any pics yesterday but this gives you a view if the shirt. I'll post one full body when my daughter gets here to take it.

You lookin' good!! Much better!! Seriously..... listen to newbootyinc....she knows her stuff!

Post op visit!

So I saw Dr. J for my follow up and he says I still have a lot of swelling duh that's obvious!! But I'm still not seeing it even with swelling but he says it should get better and he wants to see me again in 6 wks. He also stated he took out 4500 ccs(800 from my entire abdomen & 1850 from eaxh side flanks & bra roll) that hefa told me in recovery he took out 5000 he claims I was a difficult case.. Why hell I seem some with midsections bigger than mines and come out small but ima keep the faith and hope it gets better.
I went to the store today to get some water pills to see if that helps with the swelling although I didn't ask him I forgot but I'm trying them anyways. And he told me to get the lymphatic massages that should help he also said its time to do my part and get back in the gym because its ok for me to now hell I already did he says he wants me at 190 when I come back in 6 wks let's see how that goes that's 22lbs.

Water Pill!

So I started taking the water pills yesterday and this morning I took 2 as directed and I haven't swelled like I usually do. By this time of day my sides would be so swollen and hurting from being so tight and that's not the case only down side is that I get a slight headache from the caffeine in them I should've brought the caffeine free ones but hey I could use the energy a slight headache or no swelling I'll take the no swelling!! I have this foam on also and I'm sweating where the foam is not bad but if I put my hand under it it's wet. These water pills have you use the restroom like you 9 mths preggers I don't mind and also I was a pound lighter this morning I guess that's the water weight coming off.
I'll keep yall posted on how it goes.
When I read your review i found very similar thing between our stories,.dr jimerso told me the same thing. He said i was a difficult case, my fat was like cement,he was able to took only 800 cc from my abdomen. And I have to diet and excercise to improve my results.he give similar numbers to everyone. And obviously his lipo skills need to be improved . Anyway I hope your results are better now. I m 4 weeks post and I wasted my 20000$. I hate my results

Glad the water pill is working for you!!

I'm definitely going to need a round 2!!

Well I've be m.i.a for a minute even tho I occasionally check the blog. I've been focusing on getting my waist down more and it seems to be not happening. This swelling is driving me crazy I really do think Dr. J could've done a better job with my lipo. I am planning a round 2 early next year not sure which dr I want to go to yet but I'm still researching. Well that's it for me good luck to all the sistas who are waiting for their turn to be bootyfied and happy healing to those who already experienced this life changing moment.
Congrats, u looking better. Give it sometime because everyones body is different. Im 10 days post op and I have swollen from fluid so im take lasik pill to pee it out and lymphatic massage. U should have stood with the garment they had previous put on u the first day u got ur surgery done that is a why for wearing that garment ib particular. Stay strong sista it will get better. I got 950cc each cheeks and 300 cc in hips my waist is small but I got to do my job he is talented but he is not god as well.

I wish I would've chosen another Dr.

You would think after 5months I would be right but hell naw I feel I wasted my money with Dr. J don't get me wrong he's great with asses but I feel he was sleep when he did my lipo. It's sooo hard getting in contact with someone in the office and finally when nurse Kim calls me back every answer is oh that's normal and gives me info on a website they use now for their patients called AestheticLink and you can send in photos or a video of about any concerns you're having and he'll supposedly get back to you quickly....yeah right that was last week. I think he needs to do a revision because it looks as if I haven't had anything done. I'll post pics and you tell me if I'm seeing things are not.
Sorry sister, for your results, me too I m 4 months post op and my results are getting worse... I m very depressed and dr J just messed up both my body and my heart.since this surgery my life is a nightmare.....
Reply
Its a well known fact Dr j is not aggressive with lipo. A lot of girls say get the booty and keep moving cuz everything else will be a disappointment. But i see u only got lipo though. There are plenty of surgeons that are aggressive with lipo. Infact that should be the first thing any plasticsurgeon should learn before specializing in a particular area

Yeah you aren't seeing things. Dr j. Been slipping lately. Check out robbed blog. He did her something awful. I'm looking into perry or salma. Salma been showing out lately. The dolls are looking nice

Can't even get a response from my own Dr.!!! SMH! 6mnths post op very unsatisfied! Pics included!

It's so frustrating when you try to get in contact with your Dr. about your concerns all to have someone who didn't preform your surgery contact you, this person can't help me because she didn't do my surgery! I mean I do think I paid you and not anyone else. I really wish I would have thought it through and went with my guy and picked another dr. I get that everybody results are different but damn I look the same as before surgery even worst in some areas as I go back and look at my before pics I can just kick myself!! Take a look at my photo from my consult on 3/15/13 that I took while in the office and you tell me if you see a difference.....hell no! If you have been on here for a while and have seen other before pics I posted but then remove you will know exactly what I'm talking about.

I think if I would have chosen a local doctor in SC he/she probably would've done a better job and I would've save some money. At this point I feel as if Dr. J has no intention on talking with me about my issues. My bra rolls look like they weeny even touched my left side is bigger then the right and my lower abs looks like something is bulging out. For all this trouble I could've saved that money if I was going to lion the same. I just think its unprofessional that he doesn't even check on his patients let alone call himself when there is some sort of issue. I can say this is certainly a lesson learned. To each is own and everybody results are different but I don't think I can see myself paying him anymore of my money to fix this just cuz I feel I'll get the same attention I'm getting now NONE!!!

I have to get this fixed I don't even want to take my clothes off in front of my dude!! It's depressing to say the least.

6months post op!! Very unsatisfied!!

I hope your doing better hun
