I want to start off by thanking RealSelf.com. I love watching dreams come true for people just like me. We are all here for the same reason and the beauty of each persons story is what motivated me to "make it happen". Hopefully I can be a help to somebody else here.


I have never had a butt. Boy shape with a C cup. No hips or nothing. I'm top heavy (fat arms, back fat, and belly) if I don't watch my weight. I stand 5'7" and about 145lbs. I just had my first child (gained over 80lbs) just 5mo ago. I lost all my weight so one doctor told me to gain 15-20lbs more to get the big ol butt! Now I changed doctors and Dr. J Curves suggest I loose a few lbs. WOW! Talk about a roller coaster...I hope I can do it in time (mid-Aug).


I want the hour-glass so I am paying to add hips and to lipo my upper back fat too. I wish I could lipo my arms too but I'll just try to do some arm workouts.


I am very excited about getting my BBL and I pray nothing gets in my way. I've waited long enough!!!
I did my homework and found the right doctor for me. The office staff has been professional and very nice (so far). I would say the doctor gave it to me straight. He told me I would have to have mini TT to get my belly flat since my crazy preg weight gain caused some serious ab damage :-(


On the briaght side we should be able to make it somewhat better with lipo. I sure hope the good will out way the bad. Since I never had and waist line or hips and no butt before I'm sure I'll be happy with that. Atleast I wont be with all my junk in the front and none in my trunk any longer!!! lol


I have to pay off my balance by Aug 9 in order to keep my date. I also need to get my lab work done and book flight plus hotel. I really want to road trip home laying in the back all the way back from ATL. Not sure I want to fly back and risk killing my fat cells. (What if it's bumpy and they never turn off the fasten seat belt light...I cant get up...my fat may die)


I will add updates as I go. Please feel free to add comments. I would love to hear from anyone who cares to share :-)

Ok I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. Talked with the patient coordinator today and I need to loose about 10lbs and tone. The weightloss isn't too bad but the TONE part is killing me. I've never had tone!!! Sucks you can't buy tone :-( FML!!! )-:

I'm going to try the insanity workout. I need results and I don't have all day!

Talk about the truth hurts...I could spend $10,000.00 and still need work! Never knew it would take so much to feel good about myself again.
ok so im 17 in west palm beach and im trying 2 find out how i can get this surgery done because genetics blessed me with a big bust and big hips and thighs so that i look like the hourglass from the front bt then i turn to the side and my butt is flat and saggy...i just want to be able 2 go 2 the beach and have my butt look round and perky like it should for my age.. and add more volume to it so my bust doesnt overpower it like it already does.... help?

Still sad and feeling like unless I pay another $8,000.00+ I'm going to be walking around with a gutt with my new butt. Not cute. I'm still trying to figure out why I can't get a flat belly. This is such BS!!!
My boyfriend lost my insanity workout disc so I'm feeling even more upset because I want to see what I can do to flatten my belly since my budget can't help me with this issue!
So the doc is saying you need a tummy tuck?

Damn it. My blood pressure is still high. I never had a Bp issue but during pregnancy I developed preeclapsia and was really bad off. After I went home with my baby it wasn't better I was rushed in and had to stay another 2 weeks for them to get me under control. I left the all that in my past thinking I was ok and didn't need any meds. I guess I was wrong. 5 mo later I still have high Bp. So I'm going to have to delay my bbl. (sad face) but at least now I know its not going to just go away. I have to take meds. Could be worse.
Hey! I hope your BP gets under control. My sister has bp issues and she's in her early 20's. The way she got it finally under control was weight loss and virtually no sodium in her diet. She is also on meds. I had bp issues too but only during my first pregnancy. I hope you can get it under control so you can have you BBL! By the way, if you have an iphone or ipad there is a P90X app and the Ab Ripper X video is included. I have a hanging c section pouch and it's shrunk a ton doing that video 4 times a week. It's only 16 mins long but pure hell lol. Good luck and I hope you find your insanity cd!

How are you? I'm hangn in there,really wish I could seey results,I'm a lil discouraged,cuz I can't really tell,how my butt looks,so that just makes it worse....I'm tired of being stuck in the house,can't do shit,can't fit shit,boy this is a roller coaster ride for me....

My bbl dreams have forced me to seriously get my...

My bbl dreams have forced me to seriously get my overall heather together. Being pregnant I got used to so many things that became wrong. Even after having my baby I ignored my health issues thinking everything would go back to normal when I loose all the baby weight! Well I am finding out my weight loss didn't fix my pregnacy induced high blood pressure, nor my pregnancy induced gum disease. It's crazy how I forgot brushing shouldn't cause bleeding. Or that daily headache or chest pain isn't ok. Over the last year that was the norm for me and being so focused on the baby I just really let myself go. I just found out gum disease is linked to heart disease and i just found out I have both! It sucks but as long as I get it all under controll I can still get my new booty! So today I had $2200 worth of dental care to fix my gum disease. No insurance.
Now I also have to be cleared by an cardio or internal med dr and continue taking blood pressure pills.
My motivation behind getting me together is now not only my booty but my baby girl. Being healthy for her is serious. I can't believe I've let my self go so bad! I feel like a bad mommy but I'm going to be all good soon and looking good too soon. Just one thing at a time. One day at a time.
Wow...so he wants you to weight 150 at 5'7.....dannnnggg i dont think i can lose that much weight lol. I know you can do it and good luck miss lady!
Reply
I carry my fat all up top so I do look much better at about 140-145! So 150 gives me plenty fat to transfer. I think it's just based on how you carry your fat...I hate my upper body as much asy lower body. Can't wait to get this booty!!!!

Yesterday I called the office to make a payment and talk about my concerns. The office was busy but I didn't feel rushed with Michelle at all. I needed to talk about my medical clearence. I want to avoid paying more than once if I know I may not clear due to a changes with my blood pressure medication. She understood and told me it would be better to give the new meds time and to add an iron pill. So I still have time to get it together and avoid pushing my Sx back again! I have been doing well with my weight loss. I only want to loose about 5-7 more lbs. I'm looking to be 150-155lbs for Sx and I still have over 3 weeks to make it happen. I made another payment and need my new balance because I am not paying all cash now I'm financing $5,000. Does anybody know how much for just the bbl without the cash discount? I also forgot to ask about extra lipo areas...I don't want mo lipo on my legs. They are small enough and my man thinks they are too skinny as it is. The insides barely touch. Since this is an area included that I don't want or need I'd like to get my arms done instead. This should be a fair trade and I break even on the cost. But I don't know if it will affect my bbl results if lipo is not done to the thighs so I will have to find out. Last concern that I am having is flying back with my baby and having to stand. I was going to take the Amtrak train home and get a room on the train to lay down but it's going to take 2 days to get home. I'd have to pay for another hotel since its goes from Atl to overnight in New Orleans then to Houston. I need to make my mind up on the best way to get home with the little one. Traveling with the baby on the plane and having to stand most of the flight sounds like doing too much. My baby is 20lbs and I don't know how much I'll be able to stand up holding her.
Girl your day is coming soon!!! Looking forward to it. Good luck with everything.

So this weekend I tried to get all my ducks in a row! Flights rental car and hotel. I just found out the dr office is 1 hr away from the Atl airport...is this right? Well my pre-op time has to be pushed back. I can't get a flight into Atl any earlier than 10:45a and my pre-op is at 11:00a. Hopefully it's not too big of a deal to move it back on the same day.
Also I can only stay 9 days...they say 7-10...so really is this a big deal? I am going to have my Mom drive me in a rental that way she can easily go get anything we need. As for the return trip I will be flying. 2 hr nonstop flight home beats all my other options. Hopefully my boyfriend will fly down. I pray he will. I know I will need help flying back with the baby.
My blood pressure is looking great thx God!!! I have been taking iron too so hopefully the Cbc test will be fine. I'm going to go for my medical clearence later this week or early next week.
I got the best advise ever on here not to pay for all the extra lipo up front. It's better for me to wait and see what is actually needed when the dr sees me in person! So I guess the good news is I already made my last (upfront) cash payment!!!!!! Yayyy.
Wish me well. Lord knows I don't need nothing else to pop up. #SocloseIcanseeit!

Medical clearance in the morning. This is the 2nd time around and I pray there's not a third. Hopefully everything is all good with my labs. My blood pressure meds have been working well but I made a big mistake and had something high in sodium. It jacked my blood pressure all up. Damn it! I am so mad at myself but it's done now. I will check after I take my meds in the morning and hopefully my blood pressure is back normal. Sucks because my appt is at 9am. Not much time to get it right. Wish me luck y'all. I need it!!!
If your baby is 20 lbs, would the baby be able to sit in your seat fastened in of course and you stand up? Is your mom flying back with you as well or are you traveling back home alone? That's going to be kinda tough. You sitting in your seat and the baby sitting on your lap. Unless the baby will have their own seat next to you.

Yayyyy!!!! Finally passed my medical clearence. The third time really was the charm for me. I am so excited. It's been a very long road just getting to this point. I ordered the makemeheal pills for pre and post op. they are a few $ cheaper on amazon.com and come straight from makemeheal.com
I am trying to drop a few more lbs in the neck 3 weeks just to be sure I am just right. I don't want too much fat that I still have fat that he can't lipo all of it from my problem areas. This back has got to go. All of it!!! The belly muscles are ruptured so I can only do so much at this point. No tummy tuck this time. I'm going to see how much my over all body is improved thru the fat transfer and body sculpting. I am seriously thinking about doing these arms too. I just don't want scars :-( maybe he can go in the arm pit...not much info about arm lipo for me to really know if it's worth it or not. I guess I will just see what Dr j says at my pre op NOV 8th. I am READY! The countdown starts now
Yay for you on passing your tests!! LOL I can't wait to see your results!!

Thx u mixedbarbie21! I am too happy. This is my life long dream to finally feel normal. I have been handicapped (in my head having what I call a disfigurement) for far too long.

hi desired1, you and i have similar body types, i am 5'7 and 148lbs (avg) after 2 kids, with not enough ass and no hips either. thats one of my biggest concerns is having enough fat transfer for hips and ass! lol but i want both full. im doing dr s in february. im sooo anxious! cant wait to see your results because i was debating between these two drs. they both are equally talented. wishing you the best, good luck on your journey!

I've been working out my arms like crazy. I feel like they are getting tighter but not smaller. I also wanted to drop a few more lbs but I have watched the scale go up :-( this is sad for me because I don't know if I just need to take in less calories or what. The saying muscle weighs more than fat maybe true but I'm trying to look better and weigh less. I'm going for a good hard run in the am to kick my cardio into overdrive so hopefully this helps.
If you just started working out it will take time to see the scale go down rather than up when I was working out consistently twice a day the scale sometimes stayed the same but eventually it does go down it just takes time keep up the hard work
Reply
Jlo1 thx u r right about that. I just can't wait to get it over with already!!! I'm going back in forth with my weight feeling like I need to drop more or no not too much. It's crazy trying to insure I'll have plenty for a big butt but nothing extra left behind. I feel like its a thin line between not enough n too much but no matter what when that day comes I will be SO HAPPY.

This will be so funny. I can't wait to see his face when he gets home from work.

Im so excited that all my close friends and family, from coast to coast, can meet the man who will soon make my dream come true :)

It's officially official now! I finally decided on a hotel for my 10 night stay and booked it! Now I have get all my recovery supplies and make sure I have everything I think I might need. I'm not sure if I want to order the silicon strips to help prevent scars or what. I didnt use anything on my c-section scar and wish I did because it didn't heal completely flat. I want to wait to buy my second compression garment since I am still undecided about my arm lipo and it could be cheaper to buy the whole cat suit lol

I tell you if it can happen it happens to me! I'm that girl that odd stuff that never happens to anybody else happens to me. I was so sure there was nothing else going to stand in my way and then this.
I have been working out like crazy and running most days with these Curves brand high waisted shorts. They helped my before so I tried them again after my baby. I never had any issues. But that was in a different climate and I never used it out side until now. Last week I used it while running 3 days in a row. The third day was Thursday and I had a very bad itch after my workout. During the workout too but once I stop the itch got worse. All over my butt and hips. I jumped in the shower and thd water hitting my back butt and hips made the itch worse. I looked in the mirror after I showered and there was a red rash with bumps. I decided to chill out and not put anything on it. I went without bottoms to help it go away. Now it's been days and I've been using nothing but Aquphor healing ointment after I shower and it's not getting better.
I hope this will not be a issue for Sx in 5 days. I will seriously cry. I'm going to check with the people at whole foods in the morning to see if there's a quick fix. I keep reading that it will go away on its own but I'm not sure how long it can take. I'm am sad that happened to me and I don't know what is safe to use to treat it at this point being so close to Sx. Any help would be very helpful
Good luck on your upcoming date girly!!

I am so excited. I don't know what to do with myself. I'm not going to do any more working out since I have too much going on getting over this heat rash. If it means I will be 2 lbs short of my goal weight so be it! I am just trying to roll into Sx without anything else happening. I am going to keep on eating healthy and taking my makemeheal pills as well as a few arnica tablets. I need to up my water intake to be sure I'm drinking at least 80oz a day. I fall short on my water intake if I'm not careful. I'm going to start taking shots of apple cider vinager to help keep my metabolism up and control my blood pressure plus it's heart healthy. I still have to buy a female urinal and gloves. Other than that I'm all set. Thank you all for being apart if my journery.

I called and talked with dr jimmersons office today and I can say I am feeling much better now that I got all my questions and concerns taken care of. Now I'm just distressing, relaxing and thanking God for all my blessings and everyone he's put in my life who's help me along my way. I'm so happy I found this site real self is the bomb.com! I'm all set and feeling the love from everyone around me. Funny I was trying to be different and try color on my nails both hands and feet and I hate it. My boyfriend said I don't want you mad about nothing so go get it done over. I'm like no babe it's a waste of money (gel polish color change is like $40) I could use it on something else. He sad this week is about you and whatever makes you happy. I said to myself yes I hate this polish and I keep looking at it like I want it off so back to the nail spa I go. Hopefully I can get a massage today too. Staying positive goes along way so I will only speak positive and continue to give God the praise for letting me get this for. I have also started to thank him in advance not just for a job well done but a speedy recovery!

I have bra rolls too after surgery and Im a bit worried bc the fat should be gone I also talk to alldatass but I will inbox you I pray all is well.

I am feeling better each day. Now I feel like I can do everything for myself and my baby. Im still sore but I stretch all day and walk around so I'm sure it helps. The office called to check on me yesterday and they said I had 3200 taken out. Why not the max 5000 I don't know. I was also told that I have to wait to see results. They say 850 was put in my butt cheeks and 200 in my hips. Overall I think my body looks good but I wish he removed the max. I was thinking I would be all good with no more unwanted fat and that's not the case! When I got dressed yesterday I tried on pants and my booty was looking great. There's some pads still on my butt but I'm just not ready to take all the pads off yet. I'll take more pics today to show day 5.
These doctors kill me. Honestly u didnt have much fat so he could have taken out the max and given u more volume. We pay too much money to keep getting half ass work. Not talking about u perse bcuz i am included in that too. Give it time but i agree with how u feel

This update is super deep y'all. Tuesday night I...

This update is super deep y'all. Tuesday night I was feeling some serious swelling on the inside of my legs. It was becoming harder and harder causing pain. I called the office after hrs and Dr J contacted me right away saying to head to the ER. I got there they put me in a room started Iv...he called and spoke with me after the labs and cat scan came back to let me know what they found. Good news no fluid pockets or internal bleeding but my red blood count was too low. My heart rate was up and i needed a blood transfusion. I'm like omg. I knew I felt weak but I was determined to recover quick and not lay around so I ignored the signs of feeling like I was going to pass out. I was given 2 units of blood. After the first unit I felt like I was less weak and had more energy. Dr J n his office called and checked on me a few times which I was nice. I was waiting for dr J to clear me to go home. He woke me up this evening and I was so happy I could finally get my questions answered. We knew I was all good now medically so I asked straight up. What's up with this back fat? Why not the max 5000? I was given a very real and honest answer. The upper back fat is very hard to get due to it's location...fiberous tissue of that area, the ribs, lungs...which makes it difficult from person to person to get it all. He promise 60% improvement but must have much greater than a 60% I feel like I'm 80% improved in that area. And about the 5000 it varies from person to person for lots a different reasons there's no way of knowing how much of your fat is removable through the liposuction process. These are not his words just what I took from the conversation. I felt he was serious and straight up. Bottom line is that it will take some time and diet and exercise to truly look your best. I feel like I am about 80% where I want to be. I am overall very happy. I love the shape he created and my booty is perfect for me!!! The only reason why I'm not 100% is because I still got to tone my arms and back. Other than that I am a big booty goddess. Period. Can't tell me nothing. Lol.
Summary update
Dr J has to make it clear when we pay that extra that he can get a 60% improvement and let you decided if it worth it to u to pay. I still would have paid because I hated my back that much. Glad its better than a 60% improvement to me. I wouldn't trade my body now in for nothing. I love my shape and I never could have said that before. I do feel like dr jimerson made my dreams come true. The good bad and ugly it was worth it! So far. Today. Im a Gemini so...lol
I just had biopsy done on breast and they started not to do it because of my low blood...the count must be 10 mind was 9.5....and that will make them send u home with low blood count. Im so happy he responded quickly praise god. so so so so happy. praying you heal excellent with no complications love.

Yes you r right the blood count is so serious. Thanks for the well wishes it really means a lot. I've come such along way n it's thanks to positive energy from big hearts like yours :)

I concur with bbeautiful2, Gemini says it all! Them twins! Wooweee!!!! I'm so glad you are feeling better. It's so true that people go on thinking everything will ge transformed, but there are limitations to what can be done in surgery. That's why I was so eager to work out & make sure I got the results I wanted. I work with a lot of Dr's so trust me when I say Dr. J is amazing. He makes you feel like you are his only patient & he is so caring. We were truly blessed to have had such a caring PS like him. Keeping you in prayer for continued healing.

One week ago today I was going into Sx thinking wow my dream will finally come true! In a few short hrs my life was changed forever and the old insecure me was gone. I woke up a new women. The new me loves my body and all these beautiful curves. For the first time in my entire life I truly feel like a women. And a sexy one at that! Walking into dr j office today I noticed there was standing room only but nobody was sitting. Lol. I found my spot in the corner, took a pillow off the couch for my knees and waiting to be called back. The nurse Kim took me back removed my drain and helped my take me garment off. I was so happy to finally be drain free!!! She took pics and then dr j came to check me out and clear me for take off. I paid $12 for the dr j curves boy shorts and got the t-shirt for free. With all the excitement I forgot to get my surgery report. But Kim did remind me to contact the plastic surgery med insurance to get my emergency room visit paid. I hugged everyone who helped me along my way I promised I would stay in touch. As I waited in front of the office for the Hyatt place shuttle to pick me up I saw a reflection of my new body and a tear fell down my face. I was like that's me. That's my new body. I walked back and forth along the glass window feeling reborn! I am miss new booty!

I made it back home. Yay yay! I am off all meds. I still don't sit on my butt. I use my boppy pillow for my knees. I'm just not ready to go there yet. Even when I use the bathroom I use rolled up towels under my legs to take all pressure off my butt. I still use my female urinal to pee. The Walgreens across from dr j office sells a boppy like pillow for $15 with a carry case. I stayed at the Hyatt place which wasn't as nice as I would have liked. The staff was fine but they needed more help. The food was bad. They let whoever cook. The don't have a cook. So one day its good one day it's bad. They didn't have cheese. They didn't have mustard. They didn't have ceaser dressing. They didn't have a clean pack n p,ay for my baby. The first night they went thru 3 before they just decided to clean it and sterilize it right there in the room. A mess. They have handicap room which I moved into after day 3. I was so happy I did. I decided to just make my own meals. Fruits and veggi. I had salad everyday. They didn't have a washer n dryer. But they did bring a microwave into my room. I got a DVD player for my baby to watch Elmo. So after all it wasn't that bad but not what I wished for.


My boyfriend came up behind me at the airport and I was shocked to feel pressure on my butt it was funny. He was like a kid with a new toy. He couldn't stop smiling. I said you can look but don't touch. He didn't see any pic so seeing in person for the first time blew him away. The ride home wasn't bad. We have a big suv so the front seat goes way back I just layed face down. The day to day pain is not bad but my thighs are so hard that I just can't take it anymore.

I found this endermology treatment that I'll be getting this sat to help soften up and speed up the lipo recovery. I will do a review on it I think. It is better than LDM which cost more. I'm super excited. They say you need to be 2 weeks post-lipo so I'm just counting down the days. I am so ready for my legs to feel and look normal again.

Other than that I'm doing good and feeling happy as can be. Once I get my legs normal i will be all set to hit the gym. I am going to get my arms and back nice and tight to match the rest of my body.

I will update very soon with more pics since I'm feeling like putting on something fitted. Lol. ;-)
Hey sweetie, glad you made it home safely and are happy with your results! Looking forward to more pics and updates.

Just went down a notch in my garment. I'm happy because my waist and back are getting smaller while my bug butt is stating nice n big!
I need to know how long do I wear Ted hose?
U look good. I am. Always amazed at how round his butts are. He is the best at shaping the booty. I noticed he gives several injections and i think that helps. Keep us abreast :)

Sounds like your doing great :-) I am glad you are noticing your swelling going down, it takes time. I still notice little things here and there, especially with my back, but I make myself wooooosahhh and give it time. For your TED hose ask your doc, typically you do not where them long, but since you had that ER visit, I would follow what he says :-) Happy healing babe

I am 2 weeks post -op and loving it. My boyfriend...

I am 2 weeks post -op and loving it. My boyfriend took me shopping today to celebrate my new body. He picked out over 30 items for me to try on. 20 dresses and 10 jeans. He wants me to clear my closet and start fresh for the new year with my new body. I would say I hate my closet and how much I hated getting dressed because I lacked shape. But now I love my curves. I actually enjoyed dressing up for him and trying everything on. The people at the store where like wow you have an amazing boyfriend because he was so excited to dress me. I was still in major shock that I have a desirable body now. I couldn't stop thinking I don't have to hide my back fat or my belly or my old flat butt!!! I seriously wish I had him take pics of the me in the dressing room. I will just have to play dress up again and get pictures this time. I will post very soon. I went from a med garment down to a small one now do I'm happy about that. The only thing is I got my second garment in the half leg instead of the full leg so I'm still wearing my original garment on the last notch untill my legs aren't so swollen. I will update with pics if the swelling and bruising too.
Awww thats so sweet .. My Husband is the same way he loves the new body and Butt I must say Dr. J is the MAN! I love love love my new body but my butt attracts a lot of attention lol. Enjoy the clothes . Kiss the baby for me.

FROM THE BACK I DONT HAVE MUCH ASS OR HIPS :-( I AM NOT SURE ABOUT MY RESULTS...WISH MY BUTT AND HIPS WERE BIGGER!!! ALL I WANT FOR XMAS IS TO FLUFF ;)

Look for yourself. The quality of work is going down fast! IMO. It has now become a numbers game. Don't take my word for it. Ask around. If you don't need aggressive lipo then the drive thru might be good enough for you. But most of us girls need the full upper body lipo and are willing to pay more to have it all done. Why not charge an extra $1500-$3000 for total lipo (depends on the person) if we willing to pay vs $900 and do nothing at all!!!! My story is not a bad one but I'm not looking foward to paying another dr to come behind him. I had the option to have a local dr do a complete lipo for the same cost. I honestly got caught up in the J curve hype! After my Sx I knew my back was not done! I knew it. I asked him and got alot of excuses and was told to wait. I wanted to believe him. If you don't know by now Dr j gives everybody the feeling that you are in great hands and we all mention out wonderful patient dr relationships. This is all good. But when he looked me in my face in lied that he did my back and yet I didn't have a bruise a scar and steri strip or even a bandaid. How???? Ok so I'm sore and fresh out lets wait a while. Pictures tell the story. Look at my upper back then n now. You tell me if I had lipo done! I eat well, stay active, and was never even FAT to start with. All my fat should have been gone to give me the hips and butt I asked for. I just want you all to know because I was warned but didn't listen. Don't believe the hype!!!! It's a drive-thru. You Order might not be complete! I'm going to show more back fat pics now that I'm out closet. So many of the girls don't want to share the bad news or look like they are being negative. I had to get over the feeling of what other think. It's my post. These are my feelings and I would want to know the real. That is why we all need to be our real self. I admit I didn't want to say bad things about dr j. I wanted to be a supporter. But that's not what this is about. We have to come together and let our voices be heard.
Imo i dnt think he did much with the bra roll if any :/ sry :( i have a gross one chek my pix but bc sooo many ppl r havn this issue ive been hittin the gym i want it to b a small fatroll day if sx jus n case i get bullshitted. U suld have brusing there if he did them n i just dnt c any reminance of bra roll lipo. Thats not right id get another drs opinion n if they dnt think it was dine it prolly wSnt n then hire a lawyer to gt ur money back n ur small to begin with which worries me bc u got 3500 taken out dear lord frm wear lol im fatter n now im winderingshould i drop even more weight bc i prolly got 5000 ccs of fat in my belly alone

Hi Desired1, If your upper back was done, you should have a cannula mark in the middle of your back about halfway down and perhaps marks on either side about 4 inches below your armpits. Because Dr. J doesn't operate in a hospital, the amount of fat he can remove may be limited by state law. That's why so many woman who have their procedure done in a surgical facility rather than a hospital often have fat left behind. I'm sorry you're unhappy and wish you the best.

Nobody wants to attack Dr. J he is the master at what he do and we will go back in a heartbeat so its ok to state what we feel, this is what this site is for, however you attack everybody that share what they feel its only you that's always lying n say your surgery was perfect lol but if u didn't have any problems at all something is wrong.. Just so you will know i have back rolls as well and I paid for them to look good but I think he done a wonderful job on me... I have a question why did you go to another doctor to get your boobie done?

Did you talk to anyone about getting your money back? If they try to say they did it then just ask them to show you where he made an incision. They can't take your money for something they did not do. $900 is a lot of money, for some people that's their mortgage and food to feed a family of 3 for a month.

I am just a body. This is not personal. I am just...

I am just a body. This is not personal. I am just a girl who dreamed of a butt and No back fat. That's all. Ok I lied...no gutt, with a big butt and No back fat. Now that's all. After paying thousands and traveling across the country and waiting and praying you see what I got. The TRUTH is love my butt!!! Eventhough it's not huge and lacks a shelf. I love it because it's perfect for me. And I have this crease that looks supper sexy when I move from side to side. Oh and I would have liked to have bigger hips but too much hips on me mostly would have made me feel wide and so for that reason I'm ok with what I got. My waist I LOVE!!! Belly is flatter than before baby. I was warned by dr J that a completely flat belly would require a mini tuck but I am beyond pleaed with the flatness I have without any nip tuck. NOW...this back of mine is a mess. Y'all saw it and when I wake in the morning I will be 5 weeks post-op. I can't wait to share the results or lack of. I try not to look at my back without the garment on to avoid becoming upset. So I hope the lipo fairy has been doing that technique you don't see or feel...dreaming of a flat back. Lol. Ok dolls. Realself is really starting to kick my ass. Like I don't know how much more I can take. I really feel the more real I am the more I feel like a victim and I am never a victim but the victor!

After a very long week my boyfriend and I decided to get away for the weekend. We are enjoying the country side at Lost Pines Resort. I wanted to forget about all the bbl drama and all those weapons that tried to form against me. Life is bigger than how many inches around my ass is! When young kids have their lives taken away at school you realize life's about creating memories. Instead of blogging about my body good or bad I spent the day taking in the country side and the night fireside roasting marshmallows. My baby girl had her first s'more. I'll be leaving my boopy pillow to horse back and see more the hillside later today. I'll get back to my results and update pics soon. We all need to take the time to enjoy the moment. Love peace and happiness. Ttyl hunnibunns

My realself experience has me feeling like I'd rather not even share my feelings about my bbl. I would rather share pics so y'all can just see for yourself
Ok so I'm REALLY confused by this post... Quality of the work going down you said but the commentary in your pics appear that you are satisfied

Hello just read your post I also paid for extra bra roll and can not tell where he performed the job. That area is not even sore. I also paid for hips I do not see a difference in. I think now someone is running games.

@desire1.....I know excatly how you feel. I went to Dr. Salama and its been alomst 5 months and butt has gone down alot and I do not have the results I was hoping for. Its crazy because we spend all the time doing the research for the perfect doctor and read everyone's else experiences, match up body types and everything and still its like drawing strings when it comes to rather or not you end up with what you paid for. I spent so much money I was just like "Why???" I wish I knew where Kim Kardashing went for her butt job..lol
