I decided to get a brazilian butt lift because ive always wanted to have a more shapely figure. Ive tried to work out and get in shape to lose my stomach but I just wound up losing not only weight but my butt! I have a pretty decent booty but i would like more volume on the top!!

Jeesh if I had your butt I wouldn't even worry about a BBL! Hope everything goes well with your surgery though. I was thinking of going with Dr. Salama but I'm going to go with Dr. Campos instead.

thanks newbooty91... ya my butt is ok..its jus my stomach has always been fat and ive always wanted it to be flat. So when I heard about the bbl i knew I wanted it done.
What made you choose dr.campos?
Really it came down to price when I chose Dr. Campos. He & Dr. Salama were pretty much tied for my first choice because I loved both of their work. Salama quoted me $5989 and Campos quoted me $3498. By time I add in travel + hotel etc. the cost with Salama (or any other US Dr.) were becoming high. I also considered Dr. Perry who quoted me $5900, but again the price was better with Campos.

OK Im back my realself chicas!! Im ready to tell you all about my BBL story.
March 1st
I flew in from North Carolina to Fort Lauderdale airport and then drove to Dr.S office to meet with the fabulous Ruben and Niomi to go over my schedule, sign papers and what to expect for my surgery the next day! They are both really friendly, organized and knowledgeable about everything!
March 2nd (day of surgery)
I had to wake up really early like 5am b/c I was the first surgery of the day. I meet with Dr.S and he went over everything that was about to transpire and answered all my questions. (which I forgot to print out) but they were not that trivial so I wasn’t worried I just asked him all the ones I could remember. I also forgot to print out my wish pics so I just told Dr. S that I want the max amount of fat that he could put in and that’s it. I just let him work his magic. (I GOT 1300 CC’S PER SIDE!!!)
The anesthesiologist was amazing he was very helpful before and after. He made me feel really comfortable he was really funny also before he put my under he reassured me that everything was gonna be great and then told me he was gonna give me some great Mexican tequila to make me feel good and I was out like a light. He made sure that my sister was updated at all times and that I was ok.
When I woke up I was really sore and grumpy and really mean to the lady that was helping me. It was the anesthesia and pain talking though. When she pulled out my catheter ouch! And then sat me up that was not a comfy feeling. Then she wheeled me out and to the hotel I went. I really didn’t get any slept, my neck hurt so bad from laying on my stomach. Also getting in and out the bed was terrible. I had to get really creative cause the bed were really tall I used to phone book as a lil steppin stool to get in the bed. Also I tried to dring as much water and gatoraid as possible to keep hydrated so I had to pee a lot also. I bought the GO Girl a female pee urinal device. But I use a hotel cup with a whole at the bottom it works a lot better. Less spillage on the sides. After surgery it is really important to take in as much fluids as possible b/c you lose a lot. So I have to pee all the time.
March 3rd
I made sure that I stayed on top of taking me meds especially my pain pills. The pain was prob the worst this day, and got a lil better everyday after that.
March 4th
Just laying around really sucks, you neck shoulder and body starts to hurt from laying on my stomach.
March 6th
I got my first massage. When taking off the garment I felt like I was gonna faint. During the massage the back part was ok, but painful but then when she got towards the front stomach I was in tears it hurt really bad.
March 7th
Had a consult with Dr.s he ans some questions and told me had a great big booty and I looked fantastic. Dr.S is amazing my gratitude cannot even be expressed in words he gave me the booty of my dreams. Then I had my second massage I wasn’t as nearly as bad as the first, bearable and no tears. On Friday im really excited because they are gonna remove my drains and Ima gonna get my last massage.

Its 3 weeks post op im doing well. Ive been getting massages and stretching to loosen up my skin on my ab and flanks. It surprisingly really tight after having the fat removed from my stomach I though that my skin would be loose but it is the exact opposite!! My butt has shrunk some I keep my fingers crossed everyday hoping that It remains exactly the way it is. I have really been using a lil portable stool to kneel on during classes.. I sit on the boopy just a lil bit and use my yoga mat and pillow behind my back to drive.
