Alright so I was really nervous going into this and I mean to say you want something and even plan for it to the point where you’re in the surgery room, well that’s when the reality hits that you’re actually doing this, or at least it did for me. but going into it I was anxious and excited and its crazy how the day before I was walking and could just be so careless compared to after the surgery.so I went to the clinic with my bf after seeing Rueben and Dr.Moises salama and Naomi earlier. I had my surgery around 3 o’clock that 18th so I was able to see them earlier. They said that I’d be done around 6 or 7 o’clock pm. So I had been waiting for the moment to happen and my bf just kept saying how he can’t believe I’m actually going through this and I just kept saying yes I am this is it lol and then we spoke to the doctor and anesthesiologist and he was very kind as well and let us know all of the facts. I just was waiting for that moment when everyone says that they’re put under like one minute they’re talking and the next they wake up from the surgery. I had never been to the hospital for anything; I’m pretty much very healthy thank god and have never been put under anesthetics. so I just kept asking him so many questions and then I wanted him to let me know when I was going to go under and then he let me know then asked where my favorite place I want to go is lol and I said bora bora then woke up face down and saw my bf and a nurse. I was in PAIN lol. I don’t even really remember it all because it seems so fading to me. I just remember feeling weak. Oh yea another thing, make not to eat 8 hrs. before surgery. On the packet you get it says to not eat the day before at 12pm before that time so I didn’t and by not eating for more than 24 hrs. It made me super weak so just make sure to just not eat 8 hrs. before surgery.so anyway Larry the driver is a great wonderful help. He’s very kind and always willing to accommodate to your needs. I preferred to have the transportation services because in all reality makes life a thousand times easier and sometimes pal suffer with cab drivers and renting cars, rather than just getting the driver who knows how to handle you and where he’s going. So I get to the hotel and I kind of faint as I’m getting out of the car, reason I think is because I hadn’t eaten in so long. Then I finally got to my room and you’re basically gunna want to knock out and just rest. Middle of the night I can’t even get to the bathroom and need to pee in the trash cash standing with the help of my boyfriend thank god he was there because you will need someone the first 4 days SERIOUSLY! they will need to be on your beck and call at all times so do not plan on being alone and if you are get a nurse because you will not be able to do it on your own trust me. So after that day I stayed in bed all day sand the pain pills definitely came in handy but it is super important to eat because if you don’t you will throw up like I did and feel super nauseous so definitely eat something. Soup is great and so is Gatorade. Something light is all your gunna want the first 3 days. For me, the worst days are the first 4 days, it may differ for everyone. That night it hard to sleep, I had to pee all the time and be awake every 20 minutes. I always needed to wake up my boyfriend to help me pee and take my pills, but he was very comforting and supportive. After that day it was the third day and I would still feel in pain and nauseous and I had my massage by Celia. She is great and very great with her hands. But I must admit, the first ones the most painful massage, it is painful but she is only trying to help you and heal you faster.
The second massage was painful as well but not as painful and I had my third one today by her and it is painful but getting better. I usually try to walk 10 minutes a day and whenever I get the chance or else it will be hard to catch your breath and walk (which it will be in the beginning). And the drains will kind of get annoying but you must deal with it and be careful with them because they can spill. I’ve seen the doctor twice after the surgery and I asked how many cc’s I got and he told me I received 1000 cc’s in each cheek which is satisfying because I did let him know I would have liked something from 1000 to 1200 so I am very happy with my results! The first 5 days I didn’t care about my results or how I looked or was even happy, all I wanted was for the pain to go away. Around the 6th day that’s when I feel happier about my results and how everything has gone. It’s more of a mental thing and even Naomi sad how its normal to feel a bit depressed afterwards so that’s usually how I felt, I didn’t even start looking in the mirror until the 5th day. I’ve been wearing these garments that are different than the original ones they used to have without the zipper. These have zippers and run smaller. I feel they are pretty comfortable and I have these pads on the sides and this cardboard thing that Naomi gave me a day ago and told me to wear for 3 weeks. And the garment I wear for 6 to 8 weeks so I will continue to wear it as long as needed. I leave tomorrow and will be seeing Celia and going into the office once more to have my drains taken off before I leave for my flight!

My Doctor: Moises Salama, MD
Wow is definitely the word.The staff of the elite plastic surgery was great. Noami was such a great and helpful person through out it all. The assistance in this office was stupendous. Rueben Salama was also very accommodating and reassuring of any questions and concerns, same as Noami. If there was anything you have to ask, they are always willing to answer them. Dr.Salama was very professional, and wanting to as well express your needs and concerns. He lets you know everything about the procedure, and the risks as well as the benefits. He did an AMAZING job and I am so lucky ,blessed and thankful to have such a great doctor who is so good at what he does. They never make you feel like you are out of the loop because they are always letting you know everything in advance or wanting to know if you have anything else to ask.And Larry the driver is awesome and very helpful and soo nice and kind!hes great and always willing to help when you need it!i hope to recover and only get better along the way!
