Excited!!!! - Atlanta, GA

Hey guys Im new to this after researching I...

Hey guys Im new to this after researching I decided to go with Dr Jimerson since I like his style of the BBL in women of color. I have paid my deposit and since Im out of work now I want to move my date up but I need someone to care for me while I'm there, so after reading other reviews i decided to contact a care giver (Sue) in the area since another user used this lady and says she was great! now i wont have to inconvenience any of my family members to go on this trip with me! I am going to call my coordinator (Sarah) and see about moving up my date to maybe Jan/Feb i still have about 25lbs to lose! I will let u guys know how it goes once I call on monday!

Wish look!

Ok so the person in the middle is ME! i was about 230lbs (I'm 5/7) I'm now 220 my goal weight is to be at least 200lbs but I can stand to go lower! but any-who this is what i want my hips/front to look I don't want to be too wide I hope I can get this look without having to have fat transferred to my hips Im not sure if the other ladies (on left and right) had fat transferred to their hips

Booty Shape (Wish Pic)

Ok ladies this is the shape I want to have I love the teardrop shape thats the look Im going for (I know it depends on your body type) but fingers crossed!!!!

More Wish Pics

ok, so I used the little app and enhanced it to what I think best fits the body!! tell me what u guys think!!!

January Openings!!!

Ok, so I saw (via IG) that DRJ has openings in January now u remember i wanted to move my date from Aug 2014 to Feb 2014 but I would be ok with Jan i did want to get down to at LEAST 200lbs now I'm 220 ish most of that is in my mid section so I'm hoping dr j can take the full 5000 cc from my stomach and back I called my patient coordinator so see about getting my date moved (i just saw the post about openings on thursday) called today but no luck getting in touch with Sarah I really want to get in by at least the 2nd week of Jan I wonder how long it would take to get my medical clearance done and faxed back to them? any info on where and how much the medical clearance would cost!? please help!!!

UGHHHH!

Im so pissed every urgent care placed i have called has set they do no do physicals for pre op!? everyone has told me that thats where they went and im sure everyone cant be wrong!? i called my primary care dr and they dont have any openings until 1/9 and i was hoping to have the surgery on 1/8 i feel like crying!!!!!

wellllllll

okay so today I went ahead and had my labs done at lab corp it cost me about $240 for the laps alone and the physical would be another $152 with my primary care doctor I have that appointment January 8 which is Wednesday. I also spoke with my patient care coordinator today (sarah) and I sent in some photos to the doctor of me now currently at 220 pounds he did suggest a while ago that I get down to 200 pounds but I figured since I have the time off from work now to go ahead and get it done earlier so The original photos I sent an earlier in 2012 I wighed about 240 at that time but that was earlier 2012 (I then went up to 260 pounds as of September 2012! ????) but now I'm back on track so I am currently down to 220 pounds but I figured since most of my weight was in my mid section that he could go ahead and take full 5000 cc from that area and I would be okay right!? WRONG! Sarah says that the doctor highly recommend that I am at the 200 pound mark for the best results possible so now I am on a mission to lose as much weight as possible in 30 days wish me luck I'm also going to upload some pictures of myself now at my current weight that I took last week

I officially have a date!!!!!

Hey yall okay I completed my physical yesterday and my Dr. cleared me for surgery so then I called my patient Cordinator and move my date from August 15, 2014 to February 19, 2014!!!!!! my weight as of yesterday was 216 so I have 16 pounds to go and I should be there by my surgery date!!! i'm so excited!!!!

whoa!!!!

ok guys I received a email from my cordinator saying i need to have another medical clearance done since since the the I did yesterday was done too early?! now remember i had to pay for the clearance out of pocket which was about $400! i just emailed her back to get another date within 30 days of yesterday so i wont have to get another clearance done i will let u guys know what she says once she replies if i cant get a date within the 30 days i will have to cancel!

new date!

crossed over!!!

Ok guys I had surgery at approx 5:30pm and it went well felt a little dizzy and got hot once I stood up but I feel a lot better today i also threw up once i got back to hotel from surgery (i had not eaton nor drank anything since sunday11:50pm ) and only had water saltine crackers and my antibiotic pill which i saw in my vomit so i need to ask dr if he needs to write a script for a single pill any who i will keep u guys posted daily here is my 1st preop pic

1 day post op!

okay guys I am a one day post op I get a little dizzy when I stand up I think its due to lack of iron so today I had my wonderful caretaker go out and get some iron pills and they seem to work today was also the day I was able to remove my garment for one hour and tidy up it was not hard getting it off the lovely nurse Renee walked me through how to take it off I had more trouble putting it on the taking it off and it is tight as hell!! dr. Jimerson told me while he came into Mark me that since most of my fat was on my back inside he may not be able to touch my stomach at all I was a little saddened by that but nurse Renée told me that he was able to get 200 cc out of my stomach so my belly is not as flat as I would like it to be but I can't complain because he did tell me up front and he also asked for me to be at least 200 pounds on my preop appointment I weighed in at 214 lbs overall I am satisfied I love the way I look in my garment I am not sure how many cc were removed but I asked to have the full 5000 taken get out I'm not sure how much was injected into my behind. I will ask him on my post op visit how many cc were taken it out I did not have hips added I will also upload some pictures that I have

1st Massage

ok today was my first massage it felt really good i was referred to her by Dr Jimerson's office she was a prior patient and she travels! she came to my hotel room she was on time and very professional! i also had my 1st BM today! I think the massage helped with that I will post her info I also took a lil walk today around a like to get my blood flowing will update later or tomorrow with pictures also as anyone cut the "thong" part off the shaper!? its a real pain in the ass!?

Update!

ok guys im really thinking hard about getting lipo to my belly that pouch is really bothering me but none the less here is an update pic!

Hey yall

sooo i just updating you guts with a few pics Now i dont know if i told if i told u guys or not but but i will be having the surgery again within the next 3-4 years this time i want to have the fat taken from my belly and have some put in my hips to fill them out and then more added to my butt maybe about 200-300 cc what do u guys think? also im looking on lipo express for another garment but this time i want mid leg black with thin starps in size XL (the garment i went home in was a 2xl) im just a little concerned with it may be too little since the entire butt area would be closed in i will love to have your thoughts on that as well
