As far as 'apple shaped' girls go, I am less extreme than some girls, but in many ways thats made me more frustrated with my figure, because I imagine how good my figure could be if I just had a little less fat on my belly and more fat on my hips and butt. In the right clothes I can almost trick the eye into thinking I a balanced figure, but its just an illussion. :-(....so my frustration led me here. I'm a little scared about the surgery but reading your experieneces, fellow BBLers, has really helped, so thanks to everyone who has contributed to this site. I feel weird at the prospect at getting this done at 23 but its something I've been researching and considering for a long time, thanks in large part to the excellent content and information on this site. Now its a matter of raising the funds and making an appointment with teh doctor himself. I think due to the consistency I've seen on this site, I'll go with Dr. Salama....anywayas, I'll update this as I go....I suddenly feel a little shy now about utting my photos even though I've been stalkign this site for months! X-D But here it goes

Geez, I thought I was 54 kilos....I just weighed myself and apparently I'm like 56 kilos....:-/. Not happy AT ALL about that. I haven't been this big in a while. I know for most women thats nothing but I'm only 4 foot 9.3 (gotta add the point 3!!! X-D) so thats a LOT! I and every kilo counts! I took this recent bikini photo after being at the gym, and apparently I need to go a little more than I thought!! I'll probably try to get back to around this weight for the surgery after summer though because it gives me a good amount of fat for the surgery.

Also, my cuurent stats as of June 2012: 35-30-37 Bust-waist-hips
Weight: 56 kilos/ 123.5 pounds
Body Mass Index: 26.6 (da f----)!!

Had to point out it's not me but someone else. He thought I was lying...lol but good luck with your journey. You and I both will be turning heads after the bbl chica :)

Thanks! I just hope he's able to work his magic on me X-)

This site has me on an emotional rollercoaster and...

This site has me on an emotional rollercoaster and I haven’t even had my surgery yet….I swear, its like, I’m checking twice a day and when I see girls with great results I get sosooooo excited, and when I see girls disappointed and going for round 2 and such I get so so scared and start questioning myself all over again, like is it even worth it? What if I waste my money? What if I have too much fat? Or too little? This site is a blessing and a curse, it sends me on such huge highs and lows its like I’m experiencing it all along with you guys….

Anyway, what I think I’m realising is that it’s about the individual girl. I’ve seen girls I expected to have banging results come out just O.K, and looked at some girls who I thought weren’t going to have good results, come out looking like a whole new person. It has me soooo confused! And all I can do is wait…I’ve saved up nearly half the money now, hopefully will have paid it off by the end of the year as long as keep getting temping work. I just hope my results are what I’m really wanting though, I’ve been through a lot recently, and although I know I shouldn’t be, I’m putting a lot on this surgery emotionally….I just so badly want a change in my life after feeling stuck in a rut for so long, I just want to do something to change things for myself, and tis surgery is a big part of that…. Anyways, just wanted to share my progress with you guys, and as always thanks to all the girls who post reviews, all the info is a great help- despite what it does to my emotions at times ;-)!

Take care xxxxxxxxx

A quick question here about finding a place to stay: Whats are the cheapest options? I'm thinking of renting a condo but they're all coming up as about $650 dollars a week....I'd prefer something a little cheaper. If you have any tips I'd be really grateful!

15 Comments

i'm staying in a condo near the beach, 15 mins from the office...tripadvisor.com ..search "hollywood beach designer condo" The owner is Tony and he charged me $550 for 8 nights! Tell him you found his name on realself and I'm sure he'll work with you on the price :) good luck!

Thank you so much! I'll definately look that up :-)
BTW is that condo close enough to still be able to sue the services provided by the ESP team- i.e the driver? xxxxxxxxxx

So glad the new site design allows us to 'edit'...

So glad the new site design allows us to 'edit' previous reviews, thats great, In case I have to run my mouth and curse some people out at some later stage and then regret it. LOOOL JOKING!!! Anyways, nothing new, just had my first nightmare about the surgery. It was very surreal :-/...it made absolutely no sense, but the emotions as always are what are important in dreams, and the emotions in this dream were fear and anxiety. I'm SO afraid of this not working out. I think about it every day, seriously, I can't take my mind off it and its MONTSH away...I know realistic expectations is what everyone says, but I don't know what that meaans. I wish I wans't so oevranalytical...and I wish teh surgery wsn't so long away....but it does give me time to perpare and save up, thats the main bonus.

I've just been wondering about junk food- I love KFC, McDonalds and all the rest X-D- are you allowed to eat junk food after having the BBL esp. liposuction done? Not straight after, obviously, but I mean, in the long term? Does getting this done mean you have to restrict your intake of junk food to maintain it? Is this something Dr. Salama talked to you guys about? Please let me know. Its just, I want to be able to eat what I want with no restrictions after this, I migth think twice if doing this means being super restricted for the rest of my life....Thanks in advance :-) xxxxxxxxxxx

Did any of you experience hair loss after the BBL due to the anesthesia?

hey you look great! but if you're gonna do a bbl you're gonna need to gain some weight back, they have to filter the fat and only use the good fat that's left
  • Reply
Thank you! IMO it actually makes sense to get your body into a condition which you are happy with before surgery, because I actually think it leads to better results when girls are at least a healthy weight before the operation. In fact, I find it odd that even though people are told to gain weight, some of the best results are really thin girls!....and I'm still nowhere near thin, I have other pics, my tummy still sticks out! xxxxxxxxxxxx
Hey really don't think you need to loose anymore weight xx

Do we have to take pre-surgery vitamins?...Or is that an optional thing? The pack I got doesn't seem to say anything about compulsory medication...It has a list of what NOT to take, but that's all....

Sooo I've paid now, I've got my tickets and I know...

Sooo I've paid now, I've got my tickets and I know how I'm travelling to the airport for my flight to MIA and soooo the countdown begins! I fly out in 2 weeks arriving on the 29th. Managed to get cheap accommodation recommended from someone on this website thanks, so I'll take photos when I'm there and take note of what I think of the place. Its costing my 400 pounds which is way less than what I was expecting, so I'm pleased with that.

As I said I went shopping today and took note of a lot of people's recommendations in terms of what to buy. I wanted to keep to a budget, so I went to Poundland to buy a lot of my things except for the stuff like body lotion, wipes and all the toiletries. But some things like the sponges and plates I bought from poundland. I also bought a jumbo tub of Vaseline and was surprised to find a Neoprene workout belt at Poundland too, so I might try using that instead of buying an expensive waist cincher. It straps up and you can pull it pretty tightly and its made of rubber. I've put a video of Vanessa Simmons (one of my 'wish' bootys also LOL X-D using it in a workout video)....its also adjustable, so I'm hoping its good enough as a waist cincher. Vets what do you think?...I may change my mind and buy somethign else though, we'll see....

Anyways, other people's shopping lists are so dope I feel goofy even adding mine, so I won't X-D mine's an amalgamation of other people's anyways, including ForeverBooty- who's a total legend for being an detailed in her review as she has been, as well as many other people like FabNewMe who've included enough detail to make it impossible for me to miss any detail of what I may need. All I require now is some laxatives and plasters which I forgot to buy...oh and cotton balls too! X-D....and to email Nancy the Dr.s's Clearance letter and I'm good to go. I'm getting sooooooooooo nervous though :-/. About everything- the flight, getting into the U.S what if soemthing goes wrong there? Eeek! I just have so many fears. But I think I've planned enough for things to work out the way they should. At least I hope! xxxxxxxxxxx

Hey, need a bit of advice was your GP able to test blood on all requested areas? and where will you be staying? that price is great, I have found a hotel but its almost double. I have inboxed you, get back to me when you get a chance
  • Reply
Hey! Soz only just saw this. Yes they were able to do pretty much everything. My first GP was a little confused about the PT and PTT testing, but thats basically a blood clotting testand they should be able to do that too. The only thing they could not do is the Urinalysis thing UA C&S or whatever. All my GP could do was confirm that there were no abnormalities in my urine but EPS asked for something for thorough than that so I'm going to get that done a couple of days before the procedure. Only thing that cost me money was the Clearance Letter which was £20. Will check my inbox too! xxxxxxxxxxx

VETS: How can you tell the difference between swelling and your final results

I'm concerned about the healing of my stomach...I can't tell whether after 3 months I'm seeing my true final results or if its just swelling? I like how I look an hour or so after taking off my garment....but longer than that I start getting warm/burning sensations, a sensitive tingly feeling and the tummy area looks weird, puffy and feels all tender...when is my tummy going to act/look normal again...or is this my final results- because my tummy looks bulbous and weird after a whole day with no waist cincer and foams...

So for people who've had the surgery how do you know for sure whats swelling and whats your final result?

18 Comments

You can experience swelling up to a year post op, so if you're experiencing a strange sensation and tight feeling in the evening, that's definitely sounds like swelling. You don't need super tight compression around the clock at 3 months post, but I would definitely suggest moderate compression.

Thanks for the response and advice. I've been trying these 24 hour test runs with no garment, and by the end of the day my skin feels really tight and weird and all that stuff, so for now I'll probably just wear he garment at night....BTW cinammon what did your final results look like? Did your tummy look flat after all the months of healing i.e as flat as it did after taking the garment off? I;m fretting a bit because I love the way my body looks after I take my cincher off and for a couple of hours or so after as long as I'm not too active, its flat and looks normal. Any longer than that, my tummy starts spazzing out and I just wonder what the final results are going to be like...
BTW my cincher is no longer really tight, and I wear a foam underneath it on the front of my tummy. It just serves a function of preventing me from feeling tingly and sensitive all day and keeps my tummy from spazzing out and swelling...I'm just trying to deduce whether wearing the cincher and then viewing myself after taking it off is really giving me an accurate view of my final results? Thanks again xxxxxxxx
