I am ready for my procedure. Research so much {2 years} and I made the choice to go with Dr, Salama. Dr Mendieta was to high and many of people that went with him need revisions and were okay with outcome instead of being satisfied. I will book for feb 2013. I am 23 5 '6 150lbs

Please past patients enlighten me ...... Anyone one post op 1, 2, or 3 years i would love to hear

Im hearing about this new DOC WORKING WITH Dr SALAMA, seen some of his work looks pretty good.

So far I have booked my room and need to book a rental im not waiting on Larry so many stories about him figure i'd use that extra money for more massages instead of late transportation. lol

Any one have any advice for preparation ??????

Lately I been thinking why are u doing this ? just be happy with what u have and I can't. I feel guilty and think I am ungrateful then I think again and say go for it u live once your are not hurting no one. I'm glad to say I am doing it FOR ME and not someone else. I want to love not like what I see in the mirror. I need that confidence not so much the attention from men it's all about accepting my appearance
I am so anxious I am trying to prepare best as I can. Any ladies OTHER LADIES on here scheduled for April please share your pre-op list. I am hoping my results looks natural and curvy. All I can think about is the pain, PAIN AND MORE PAIN LOL but all things come with pros an cons Thanks for all response !!!!

I am almost ready have a hotel, car, personals, support, and flight booked. I guess the back and forth is part of the psychological worry. I want this done and over one minute and then the next I want to back out because of the pain, the effort that goes into the post op healing process it's alot financially, physically and emotionally. I'm not going into this surgery thinking that I will come out perfect that I will never be. I just want to look and feel better about my appearance for me. I just want to feel secure and be well afterwards, health is everything. I will continue to pray and hope for the best out come. To all u ladies I wish u well :-) and thanks for ur insight

I was up and out my hotel by 7:30 am got to the surgery center building got to the suite and it was nice and clean. Well ladies I met with Dr Salama he was nice explain everything that would take place during and before surgery. After he finished speaking I explain my desire shape in detail and showed some pics he said that he did not mind showing pic, its just that he would like for everyone to have realistic expectations he tooks pic marked me upand off to the surgery room I went at 10 am. Ladies I was scared before received my IV I was crying just felt so overwhelmed. And the five minutes latter (it seemed) i was awaken by the nurse can't remember the name she was nice trying to alert me. when I came through thanked God immediately. Really I was expecting to feel like shit and to fall apart. Instead I was very sore and groggy I did t care bout my ass I was just thankful to be alive. The nurse had me dressed and ready to go she helped me transfer to a wheel chair and when I sat down let me tell u I said it dont feel like it belong to me but this is a big ass lol. I got into the back of my rental and went on my way to the hotel with my aunt. Ladies please have some one with u that is attentative and patient. I didn't want anyone in the lobby of the hotel to see me so I went in through the back and walked up 3 flights of steps SUPRISED MY self. Took my iron vitamin c ate some food and drink some Gatorade and went to sleep.

Hello ladies just to update I am doing fairly well I am taking my meds walking and eating really good and staying hydrates. Please follow the pre op vitamin course it really helps out with the way u will feel after surgery the bioflavonoids, arnica Montana, iron vitamin c bromelanin it all plays a major role. I am so thankful to be in good spirits I was expecting to feel awful. don't get meting its painful but I can tolerate it and I am the biggest baby when it comes to pain. Also before surgery I did cardio and the insanity work out (just the 15 min warm up) I wish u all the best blessings, I will be getting my first massage tomorrow I will keep u posted :-)

Day 1 was not that bad day 2 was a little more difficult I had problems getting up and out of bed the more you lay the stiffer you will get so I try to not lay for more than a hour and half plus I urine dame near ever hour or 2 my drains have began to drain less when I went for my first post op appointment I was very protective of my body it's just so sore and u really don't want no one to touch rub or act like they are near u my skin feels like its not mines yet I can still feel the soreness my dressing were removed and I was told that I looked really and that I could shower and rinse the garment out talk about scared I was like aww shit how am I going to do that ! I got back to the hotel after walking around and said to my aunt lets start this task when we began to pull down the garment I didn't feel faint I felt soreness especially in my lower abdomen pulling down off my ass was a job in a half but I managed I got in to the tub taking baby steps and was hoping that my incision sites did not burn and thanks God they didn't I didn't turn the shower head on because I was scared of the water pressure I just took a long bird bath with dial soap which I hate but it was all I can tolerate my aunt help me I got out laid across the bed and she dried me off I felt a Lil relief took my meds and went to sleep woke up 2 hours later ate some food an hydrated my self I always pace my self and take my time and do as much as I can if I can answer any questions ask away take care ladies oh also please keep Lil Co Co I'm prayer for a speedy recovery she is such a doll !!!!!

I must say this has been in experience and a half iI have been following all my post op regimens yesterday I had my first massage I did not know I was that strong it was painful but I needed it Elinee was patient and she understood me I am comfortable with my results I try my best not to get wrapped up into comparing myself to others I have to look at my body like this is me and this is how my body has reacted to reconstruction yes I am human and I do sit and think oh maybe I should've got my but a lil bigger or maybe I should've showed another picture I truthfully speaking I looks so much better and I'm even thinking about where things that I never will before I am thankful that Dr. Salama has performed the best prudent skills on me as a surgeon and I look forward to the best possible final results !

A word of advice

Ladies when u get to ur hotel clean PLEASE
My hotel was nice and clean yet germs and bacteria can not be seen by the eye
I use Clorox Whipes & Spray on the door nobs counter tops, refrigerator, bathroom tub, sinks, any where frequent traffic of touching and using occurred.
We do not need to be subject to anything more. Good healing starts with adherence mobility and cleanliness. I have learned so much from other ladies and if I can help or have insightful info I will try to post. I am still healing good I have a long way to go hopefully all goes well. It is so easy to get caught up in how ur the physical shape looks but there are other concerns that need we to be attentive to. Good luck take care

Dr Salama 1 year PO ????

Well ladies it has been a 1 year since my surgery ????????????????????????. I always wonder would I go through with the surgery and how would I feel afterwards. I feel great but we as people put so much emphasis on the physical sometime it gets sad. All thought it's nothing like feeling good about your self , I must say it has to come from within. My weight has increase by 10 lbs my measurements are the same 38",29", 44" and I would do it all again. I thought after surgery I was going to be more out going and sexual, but that's not me. I just feel more confident and super sexy and that's exactly what I wanted. As far as a touch up I think I will leave my body as it is. I wish u ladies all the best in your process of gratification !

I lost like like 4 inch after surgery I was measuring like 48" but u really can't go by inches it depend on ur body mass Dr Salama gave me 1300 cc per per cheeks all u can do is minimize sitting after surgery and do squats like 3 months post op ultimately it depends on how ur body absorbs your fat
