I heard about this surgery about 12 years ago from a chick I used to dance with. She said she was going to get her butt done in ATL. Ever since she told me about it I was interested. I already was planning on getting lipo to my abdomen and flanks, and i figured I might as well use the fat instead of them just throwing it away. Problem is that every consult I went to here where I live in Pittsburgh, all the PS's said the same thing,"That won't work, the fat will die". So I ended up just getting lipo. I told the PS not to take too much fat out my belly though. (I knew that I would eventually find a PS that would be able to do it).
Earlier this year I finally found a PS here that does the bbl. I came on Realself to find more info on him. I got sidetracked though when I was looking at before and after pics and found Dr. Jimerson's pics. At that point I forgot all about that PS from here and called and scheduled my consult with Dr. J.
My consult was 10/10/2012. I will be getting lipo to abdomen, flanks, bra roll, and inner thighs, fat grafted to hips & butt. I was quoted at $11,200. Sx is 5/23/2013. At the time when i sent my pics I was already 8lbs heavier than i like to be (i'm 5'7 168lbs/ 38-30-40), and was told like everyone else to gain 10-15lbs! I told them I'm already 8lbs over and they said with the results I want I need to gain more :( I stopped working out and I feel so disgusting. My thighs are a mess! I gotta tighten them up as soon as i can after sx.
I didn't book yet but I'm thinking of going to the Hyatt for my stay,mainly for the shuttle. I still gotta get financed, but i'm paying off a collections account (which will be paid in full later this month) and my credit cards. I figure I'll try my credit union first and than try the other sx financing companies if that don't work. I paid high interest for the lipo I had done, and don't want to do that again. Can anyone tell me would it be too early to book my flight and hotel 6 months ahead???
