Does anyone have a list of things needed for bbl.....

Does anyone have a list of things needed for bbl... During and after. Thanks in advance

31 days to go!

I am almost done getting all the supplies needed for my journey. My son birthday is 11/21. To anyone who has had lipo and bbl, where u able to go out and move well this early after? I will be 9 days post op then.

oh yea

my current weight is 182. and I plan on losing more by surgery and Im 5'6

25 days to go.

today is the first day that I stopped second guessing my decision on having this surgery. im so ready to get this over and to be on the other side. I will be on my period during the surgery. Has this happened to anyone else? tried to move my surgery date up but dr okoro is booked to the max.

unhappy pre op

I had my pre op today. I left in tears! The PA who i saw before told me the doctor could get my stomach flat and do 900-1000cc. And today when showed what could be done was a shocker! He said he only promises 1-1/2 inch in projection and 2 inches is pushing it! Wth!!??? Im not paying 9000 for a inch. So now 3 weeks till surgery i get this info. My feelings r hurt

After bbl and lipo with okoro. Give me ur honest opinion

Before bbl. do u guys see a big diffrence

The other one was to small

Reality check

Ok so dr okoro gave me a reality check today. I realized I'm not gonna reach my goal in one surgery. So I will do bbl and lipo first then I will have a mini tummy tuck. So count down to surgery starts again. Also I saw time2dome2013 profile was helpful because we have the same body type.

Time to regroup

This was support to be the happiest parts of my journey but y is it my saddest? I just feel I was told one thing and now after investing money and time I feel as though I gotta settle. If u r looking for moderate changes dr okoro is the person but I was looking for a transformation and he is not the surgeon for me. I just don't have that type of money to give for minimum results

Me

I hpe no one is offenended by my comments or opinions. I thought thats what realself was for. I am only doing what makes ME happy. Have a great day everyone.

rollercoaster

After going up and down. I decided to stick with okoro. I have a better understanding of what i will be getting. Salama offeres me 11/5 but ive did all my research on okoro.... So thats who i trust and who i will stick with

It's getting close

I have decided to follow the waist training that tinywaistbigbooty did. Her' is amazing. Excited and ready!!

Sooooo ready

I saw dr okoro again today

I'm so glad I chose Dr. Okoro. He truly cares and want the best outcome for you. I can't wait till surgery day!

massage therapist is set

I have set up daily massages with tina. She is very informative and I cant wait to get started. Thanks for all the info ladies to help me find her. If someone else needs the number it is 678-856-3864. It will be worth it.

Sleepless nights already

Now that my surgery is only a few days away, now I can't seem to get to sleep. I'm anxious and excited. I've only been off of work for 2 days and I'm about to go stir crazy in this house. This is gonna be a loooong recovery for me lol

Yayyyyyyy!

Today is my day finally!!!! My nerves haven't kicked in yet. Soon as I see the OR they might but I hope not. I have been waiting since December of 2012 for this and I'm ready. I pray everything goes well and as soon as I can I will update you ladies. Thanks for all ur support :)

Hi

Hi. Intestine will update tomm

1 day po. Officially hate this garment

Post op

Please ladies do not do this without help. It's no joke! I haven't experienced any pain at all only soreness and this devil garment. I will take pics when I take my garment off and wash it. Do I hand wash it? NYcutie where r u lol

Post op day 2

I took the pics myself so bear with me. I also stopped pain meds today.

Post op

Tried on a dress. Garment, clothes, and lipo foam under but I love my results

Sleeping on and off due to garment. Ugh!

This garment! I hope it gets better after my first massage. This white binder is bunching up. Should I go to a squeem now?

1 week post op tomorrow

1 week post op

I just started getting scar tissue and it is no fun. I love my results, they change everday. I'm finally getting comfortable in my garment and when I don't have it on I feel awkward. Thanks NYcutie for the pic info

Almost 2 weeks post op

Some areas of my butt is starting to soften and my stomach is almost flat and I don't have any loose skin. Dr Okoro is great. I also wear that garment and binder at all times except for shower and I get it washed during that time. Here are a few updated pics

Sitting but not sitting

1 month post op

I had my 2nd smooth shape today. After surgery I started in a XL and now I'm down to a small garment but One of my cheeks lost more than the other. I'm thinking I want round 2 in a year but I will wait for 6 months post op before I decide.

Tue will be six weeks

I can't wait to sit!

Almost 6 weeks

This journey wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. It made me feel better when trying on clothes and just more self confidence in general. Now on to the hard part, which is to keep it. This week I started with a personal trainer and I plan on going back to lipo the upper back and arms and dr okoro will put that in my butt. I will continue to wear a garment b/c it makes me feel comfortable and I never thought I would say those words lol. That garment was the enemy lmbo. Well I guess that's all for now

Ugh

I'm back to a flat butt! Back in the same under wear. Ashamed to even tell someone I ever had this procedure! So I am currently planning another procedure. I just hate I paid all that money just for a smaller waist. No it's not butt greed! I'm back in the same jeans. Sad be careful ladies and I didn't sit till 6 weeks

Before

Yes he did a great job on lipo but the booty looks the same
