Hi thought long and hard about this and it's a go And I've decided to go with dr.salama if both procedures can be done together which I highly doubt...if not I've decided to go with Dr.wendell for the breast.....so my question to Dr. salama is can these be done together or no?

thanks for answering my questions guys and to dr.salama thanks as well! :)

@Petagay Sheepshead - Good morning. Unfortunately being that these two procedures are on opposite sides of your body and you will need to lay on your stomach for recovery a breast lift and BBL cannot be done together for that reason. You cannot apply pressure to your breasts after that type of surgery. Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi!! I haven't gotten the BBL yet (you know that already) but I wanted to tell you that I DID get a BA and you HAVE to sleep on your back so you should probably get them done separately!!! Also, for the breast lift.. are you getting any implants in? because I was told (and have friends that had lifts) that if you ONLY get a lift then you are only temporarily fixing the issue. The implants make your boobs extra perky for life!! Plus you will lose some breast tissue so you might want to get some in. My friend got 250cc on each side (or 225, can't remember). Super tiny ones but enough to fill up what she had lost on her BL. And when is your sx date for both? Good luck losing 50lbs! You can do it!! HEalthier lifestyle for a healthier beautiful body!! xoxo

I read somewhere that dr. salama does not like giving hips and now that I'm looking into the pics he did on here there's really no one with hips and I must admit I would really need that has I have none and the fact that I already paid my deposit I'm really staring to second guess And to think that jimmerson does great work on the hips and ass is riding my mind,,,,but one thing that had me with salama was the fact that he does aggressive lipo ........CONFUSED CAN SOMEONE SHED SOME LIGHT HERE PLEASE!
Agreed dr salama does way better lipo than jimmerson imo.

i feel the same way. I don't think Dr J does as aggressive lipo as Dr S does. But Dr J's butts look way better.

My greatest fear with this bbl thing is coming out with a square butt it's look that says I had work done my hope is that my dr. can give me that crease that that fluff.....reinking dr's I see a little too much box butt....DAMN I'M LOVING JIMMERSON'S ASSESS HE MAKES NO MISTAKES WITH BUTTS AND HIPS!!!!
I think a lot has to do with the garment .. just get the garment with the Double o's ..which is the cutt out booty area. Think it makes a huge difference as the booty heals and takes shape. Must admit though Dr. J is the bomb / Team Jimerson all day every day!!

jlo I think that's a great idea I should get one....

My opinion salama butts Are more box shaped. He is a God with the sculpturing but the butts remind me of spongebob, just my opinion, I'm in love with Dr J's butts they are round like a bubble. I guess a Georgia peach

New to realself but wasnt aware that the members give consults to other members, I find it quite funny especially if you dont have a MD but hey some people do more than others because they need the attention (obviously because one min youre leaving the next your staying..I guess the fame got to good huh?! lol) Anyways I agree I have seen some square bootys as well as some with not enough fat at the bottom of the booty so it looks a little slopeish so I pretty much have the same concerns as you Im hoping my results come out as a wort it and not as a not worth it and Im team Jimerson btw will be posting soon. I think you are going to be fine and you are going to look great. I will continue to follow because I cant wait to see your results because this is a self thing this isnt for anyone else so as long as you come out happy thats what matters screw everyone elses opinion(s) and personal feeling(s) its not their body, money, nor business. Good Luck and Best Booty Wishes!
Reply
Hi, that wasn't a consult, so no need for a MD, but real talk about expectations. Some of us desire a round 2 even though the results were good, others of us, because of different factors need a round 2 to achieve what we want. But what is not beneficial to a future patient doctor relationship is to constantly make negative titles insulting the work of a doctor you're on a waiting list for without seriously considering all the factors Nini mentioned.
Reply
Well you have your opinion I have mine and it seemed like a consult to me and it was kind of rude in my opinion (and the reason I put my opinion in my comments quite frequently is because thats just what it is my opinion like everyone elses should be an opinion and not made be like its factual) because it was a little dream crushing there was no comment of youre going to look good, good luck, or whatever it was a bunch of what she(jamacianwithnobutt) needs to do, realize, or research but who are any of you to say because none of you all are dr. salama himself or a worker of his(i hope) so your comments need to remain opinions. But Ive also realized that salama patients are very loyal to other vet patients as well as to dr. salama so IDK its just annoying constantly seeing salama patients always having something to say and its never just one its always a pack thats commenting but that goes back to that loyalty thing I guess. However, those realself members that are doing that makes this site uninteresting because they keep drama going just like I know one of you all are going to reply back to this and make it more than what it seems because its just what you all do! Also sorry Jamacianwithnobutt that Ive taken up space on your page addressing some of these issues that I have noticed realself has been having but I just dont like the negativity its getting childish and ridiculous!

So it has been a while since I've posted, alot has happened since my last post the hurricane kinda took a toll on me didn't have light,heat nor hot water.... internet access was limited then the gas situation got me all out of whack but I got over it as soon as my light and heat came back....On the weight loss issue, my plan was to start the gym on November 1st but that has to wait as my gym has been flooded (zone a resident NYC) butt!!! it's not all bad news Iv'e lost 8lbs in two weeks....that's big because I have so many months to go I can just imagine what I'll be like on the day of sugery....now here goes.... I've been lingering the thought that If I got skinny enough and love my body I won't be touching my butt lol! I think my meds that I take is why I'm starting to think straight as to loving what I have and not be so vein... but then when I look at some curvy girls I ask myself if I'm nutts for thinking I don't want those hips and ass... then I see really skinny girls that look so good in everything they wear(I was one of those girls)... my new butt/hip would hinder me from wearing certain couture brands...confused hah? yep me too! and there's days when I see girls like delishous and k mitchele and all I see is that they are limited to certain comman assault fashion eg.leggings, bodysuits and jeggingsctc etc... which is not at all what I'm interested in.. truth I'm skinny girl trapped inside a big girls body simply because I've always been skinny and I refuse to love someone I don't know.

About my meds that I take which I just started two weeks ago...is really one of the reason I am losing weight simply because one of the major side effects is major weight loss( it supresses my apetite) sometimes greedy me forgets to eat and because of these same meds I make better choices when it come to food like I said somewhere on here that I'm a over eater and can't focus on diets or any task given read bet the lines lol...so yes as of now I'm still going for sugery hope my mind doesn't change and still having my breat lift either way with Dr.perry....and a few info I left out in my first post is that I'm 5"6 over 200 lbs cup size 40DD waist 12/14 ideal weight should be anywhere from 130-150 I'm shooting for 140 so as to not have a huge dunk but a nice small waist after lipo and nice round butt and now that I've gotten time to think and review what is most important to me believe it or not is a small waist ....until then I'll be catching up on the post ops that I've missed and the pre ops as my self that's yerning and dreading the pain at the same time lol.
Hey girl.. Congrats on the weight loss. There's a natural herb that works to break down fat deposits its called Gotu Kola. My mom was on it and she lost weight. I agree w/ u that sometimes when we get huge butts we r sometimes limited to jeggings or leggings. Ima also fron the NY area and most girls that I've seen w/ the big booties only wear that or jumpsuits. Sometimes fashion choices become limited or certain brands don't look great. I'm also stressing a smaller waist to Dr S, that's really all I want, an hourglass shape. I love Dr Perrys breast lifts, he is one of my top choices for my breast lift w/ implant.

Yep this bigg ghetto butt aint gonna cut it for me lol for the kinda fashion im into,so just a little butt and small waiste would be nice at the weight im climbing for 140

Your boobs look nice. U r right about being limited as to what u can wear after a bbl. i want a round 2 but am also just thinking about more lipo. I am already kinda limited to certain clothes and i dont like that.

What if our minds change and wants nothing to do with this site anymore? one should not dictate that we cannot remove photo's!!! because after procedures some simply do not wish to stay here. we were given that option before and we need it back! deleting pics should be ok because they are ours, written journey can always stay but pics are and should be our private option to put up or remove ...This site has gotten out of whak I should just leave the forum and continue this journey like a regular person and go ahead without real self updates... but then there are people that needs that support from post ops patients.Hoping it's a computer error then dis regard this message lol! but if not I think the ponit has been posted that people aren't happy!

Hopefully he doesn't loose focus and hopefully dr.salama takes a break recoupe and refreshes his excellent work he's kmown for because truthfully he is one of the best but imo i just think he needs to cut back from having so many surgeries daily though i vioce my truth which alot don't like it is still obvious that I still have faith in Dr.s because im stoll not convinced enough to switch just holding out for him to make small changes. Excuse my typos on phone

Originaly planned on getting breast lift in march but I'm in a loop trying to save money by avoiding taking two trips down three months apart My breast lift dr. said he had a patient that did it 5 days apart but I'm afraid I'll meet hell not being able to sit or lay on my tummy arrrrgggh Has anyone done this and how was it for you? I know it won't be easy but if you've done it before would you do it again or was it unbearable...oh lawd one way I could save is to stay at my ex's house but I'm trying to avoid that cuz I can';t stand him but just trying to save but I want to be as comfortable as possible...so my plan would be do my bbl first with dr. salama then 5 days later my breast lift what yah guys think?
Congrats on the weight loss girl, you look amazing! And you say you haven't even been to the gym much? Girl, if you incorporate good eating habits with a light workout regimen, that weight will just fall off like crazy. In terms of getting both procedures 5 days apart, I don't know if that's such a great idea... I have seen people that have talked about getting them together, and I don't even know how they handle that, but I think that by getting them 5 days apart, it will be an overload for your body. At 5 days postop, your body will have already begun the healing process, and then you will be going right back in and putting strain on another part of your body. I don't know from experience, but that's just my opinion. I know you are trying to save money, and it seems that you have chosen two different doctors for the procedure, so getting them done at the same time would probably be out of the question at this point, but I think if you at least wait three months, that will be easier on your body. Good luck girl, and congrats again on the weight loss!

I'.m getting pretty nervous for surgery on March...

I'.m getting pretty nervous for surgery on March 20th (bl) God I can't wait for a new me, I feel great ,I'm in greater spirits except a few personal obstacles. My dear daddy got sick over the holidays (tearing up) my dad was more than the average dad he's our everything our angel and to see his health declining killed my spirit for a min but my family got down on our Knees and begged God to help us and he answered he's still with us! That's why I started looking at things in a more positive way I'm smiling more. everyone's noticed my drastic change.Don't take things or people's feelings for granted anymore...I don't know if my healthier lifestyle has anything to do with me being this happy...my image has changed,I'm fitting size 8/10 clothing from 14/16 who would'nt feel this good?............


I start my day of with fruits, yogurt, a glass of 2% milk and a few nutts...take vitamins,and relax a little then lunch a healthy sandwich,salad or soup and water which I skeeveeeeeee but I'm over it, for dinner I'll have 2 boiled eggs sometimes (don't judge me I'm weired) and even probably drive up to wendy's drive thru and have a small chilli and 4 pc nuggets lol (blankstare)! I've limit my sweets intake as well (cake my down fall i bake em) but you get my drift smaller meals in a healthier form plus that medicine I spoke about plays a big role in my weight loss because the major side effect is that it supresses my apetite so it helps with me being satisfied...damn I was super depress from being over weight... but I'm getting my mojo back I'm staring to go out again and getting more attention too....now I imagine I gotta cover up when I get that small waiste I dream of so much... Hah? God I hope I come out great! hell I am gonna come out looking faaaaawwbulooooooossssss lol! Omg can't wait! On prepping I don't think I'm gonna go crazy and by all sorts of nonsense just the necessities because this already is too much damn! lol...a few things i see that will be helpful for my bbl are the:

Vitamins
Arnica gel
Sponge for bed and cut the butt out
Black garment bootylicous spoke of
Waiste clincher
Maybe the brace to put behind my back so I can sit on the boppy and staighten up without leaning on my truck seat saw one lady do it a vet don't remember her name
Bicorneum for scar
Pineapple juice for swelling
Chair cut out via Foreverbooty etc...
plus lots of gatorade and soups for recovery... 40 lbs to go it is important for me to be around my ideal weight just to make sure I don't have rolls anywhere.... just want make sure I get the results I'm hoping for.thanks ladies ttyl...
So happy for you! Glad you took your life back and are feeling great. I am sure the weight loss has played a major part in your joy (I too am trying to lose 50lbs, Lord help me...). It makes me happy to know you are taking your life back and if you feel this awesome now, can you imagine how you will feel AFTER surgery...you will be over the moon. Keep it up, your such an inspiration!!!!

Warning: if you get extensive lipo on your back that car back support is gonna hurt like heck. Also it'll force you to put all ur weight on ur butt. me and girls that were in the recovery house kinda had to lean back and rest our upper back on the chair, keep lower back arched away or put a squishy pillow there and maybe place both hands on the sides of the chair seat to ease the pressure just a lil bit.

Is going over seas and the drastic cut in price...

Is going over seas and the drastic cut in price really worth it? at first when I came on real self I was totally against it until I came across yilly's work and jokingly ask myself should I?with doubt in my mind ofcourse, caught myself and asked if was crazy then I saw a horrible review about her and I said Hell nooo! then duran came and up until yesterday when my fear was realized that the standards and care aren't the same as in the Us whether we'd like to believe it or not...in my opinon it's not! Going overseas is extremly risky...
1).It's a foreign country unless you're from there It can be scary especially when something goes wrong one is in fear of speaking up...
2).communication... unless you're fluent in spanish
3).outdated equipments
4).How certain are we about the surgeans qualifications and if they do say they are what proof do we have?
5).what's post operation care like?
6) risking getting infections that we know surgeon's in the us are weiry of touching only to be left deformed or even worse
7).liability
8).worse case death,what happens now? though it can happen here...what does our family do? some of us don't even tell our families what we're having done and what we're doing think about it...where we're going..
May sound foolish but alot of shit runs through our heads and as women we must follow our instincts avoid trying to save just to rush and have it done when you want it done... simply because you don't have the us price cash and opting for O/S because it's cheaper and have the cash on hand for O/S already....my advice is be patient until you can afford a dr. you can, and it seriously gives you time to think over the procedure and ask yourself if it's all worth it, me I rushed in 6 months ago and choose the first famous guy I saw without doing my research and now that I have rethought and collect myself and I made a decision on canceling my surgery.


Yes I canceled my surgey! the main reason is because my dad is terminally ill and I decided this is not the right time to be doing surgery and the other reason was because I simply wasn't confident in his work anymore and if I'm not comfortable with my dr. or I have the slightest doubt then you better believe I will not be having that dr. performing such major surgery on me.... simply too many pts we're complaining and still are...I wasn't ready to risk that and until I'm comfortable with another then I'll choose.... which gives me time to make a decision on whether a bbl is in my future or not... breast lift is a must and yes like many of you it is quite emotional one min I want this so bad the next is IS IT WORTH IT?!.

One I've lost so much weight and still going and if I look great enough that I'm happy with I won't touch my body but If I'm not I will be doing this bbl... just trying to be as honest as possible the one thing I think most of us should be is patient it truly pays to be patient and I won't come on here telling people what to do this is just my thoughts and opinion at one point I wanted this so bad don't get me wrong I still do but now with all these risk and the live written truth facing me daily when I browse through is extremely scary there's much more I'd like to say but I'll say it when I deem it fit that's all for now Goodnight or Goodevening depending on ur location :)).


PS. by the way For the ladies looking to loose weight I recently started the green juices for detox and weight loss it works! you loose so much water weight and fat get yourselve's a juicer and use it...it's amazing.......

And for those "people" talking about being...

And for those "people" talking about being realistic , please take a pill on that word... enough! u are neither God nor a dr !!! When i first came here I was taken down with that word and thought i could never do it ! And guess what ? With the ongoing weight that i've lost and still continue to loose i would have never thought i could look like this again so yesss @#%$# remember me ? I dropped 50 lbs 20 more to go now i can say for @#%#%$ sure i will damn sure look like my wish pics... now what ?wait till after this bbl !! I don't know what i'm thinking sometimes lmfao yessss i know im confused, who isn't? i need this small waist and round tush!!!! Heyyyyyy 50lbs now what @#%#%$!? Some of you are familiar with my story some aren't.... but if some of the vets wish to be truthful and honest they can vouch for me being called fat and hated for pointing out square asses out which was true but hey... but i was basically told by a psuedo "dr" on here,that with my body type it was impossible to look like my wish pic and from that day until today i refused to be called fat again!! You would think with my dad being sick i'd laspe back into my old ways but no no i'm stronger than that! So for youz who think u can throw that word around, you! Need to be realistic and realize nothing's impossible!.

And for those who wants to know the story scroll...

And for those who wants to know the story scroll down to the begining of my journey some things were erased and some not.

If you're familiar with my post you'll know I'm...

If you're familiar with my post you'll know I'm not a fan of the gym so i look for methods to avoid it, with this 50lbs i've lost i did all by eating right and taking 1/2 hour walks around my block and taking the stairs more often, on my juicing method what I do is juice about a 1/2 gallon of juice for the day have that in between i'll snack on nutts or even the fruit itself just anything healthy! Then late evening i'll have a healthy dinner salads with grilled chicken , soups, sometimes seasoned whole grain rice with shrimp fish etc etc, Im a chef ,& a pastry chef that owns my own catering biz so in a way shit's hard to do cuz I'm always cooking and baking but i make sure to not be hungry when prepping food and cakes when i tatse i spit out so in way its good and bad cuz im always around food but i can also cook great tasty healthy meals and be satisfied listen it aint easy i won't come on here and act as if it was during this phase i tried many diets and all have failed but just eating healthy and watching my calorie intake is what i really realize will work and probably easiest to mentain i stay away from sweets and sugar and i eat nothing white everything is whole grain and yes i do cheat and i dont have a special day to do it its whenever i feel to eat i will but knowing when to stop is key. Anymore questions feel free to ask i'll answer unlike some that u message in there inbox and they read the message and act as if they don't see it fyi we know when messages are read! i asked someone a very important ? And she just read it and blew it off not nice!!! Lol.
I love your diet ideal can you inbox me more info on what you put in (for my husband not me lo I love my new body)

I wanted this surgery in July but because of my dads passing and the way i feel now which is like i have knots in my stomach im worried if u feel this way by then if i'll be able to withstand or even deal with the emotions that comes after surgery the feeling i have now is undiscribable it's so many different feelings : hurt , guilt , anger , could i have done more so much shit!!!! I guess my qyestion to anyone that may have gone through this is when does the healing process begin? I know u never get over losing someone you're close to but do i feel better with time confused...never lost anyone this close..
I lost my father to cancer years ago and it wasn't an easy process. Take time to grieve but know it gets better.

Weight loss is going well still just thought I'd update some pics and thanks to everyone for your support at a time I need it, still not emotionally healed still going through days confused etc...it looks as if surgery won't be this summer again ughghhh it's always something,but as some would say it just wasn't meant to happen at that particular time, and I refuse to go in under this much stress and the nonsense that sorrounds me now. I've missed so much but I'm trying to catch up but you guys understand.: )) once again thanks for the support.
I don't know you, but I feel for you. I am sorry for your lost. Give yourself time to heal. You have overcome so much! I am proud of you for being disciplined and eating right and losing all that weight. You are in my prayers.

ughhh

It's so depressing to see all my old mates getting there surgery and moving on with life and for me life just hits me with everything from left and right ,I'm literally in tears because it's hard watching everyone change and I'm still stuck because of obstacles and being in a depressed mood ever since I lost my dad and having to give my mind time to heal so I can be as healthy as possible for surgery ...one of the reasons I had to set the date so far away I'm so annoyed. ..I know it sound very selfish but this is something I've wanted for awhile now...I hope from here everything goes smooth ....#sad

I suggest getting on a diet that works for you and try to stick to it,it's not easy ,I know! but it is best if you want your imaginary results...sometimes we think in our heads we look a certain way until you take a pic and see what you really look lik5 this has happened to me quite a few times.now I see alot of complaining about results after going in overweight and it absolutely not fair to the drs because they can only remove so much fat in the us, so as a former overweight candidate dr salama had suggested that I loose 40lbs , in which had planned on doing before he even suggested it but even after losing the 40lbs I realized I was still over weight at 5ft6" so I decided to go further I've met my share of obstacles my dad , but the biggest problem was something called plateauing, I knew of it but never understood it until I was really getting frustrated after 4 long months and not losing not 1lb it was miserable but Google it I can't explain here . But like I was stating if I hadn't decided on dropping the weight and thought about going into surgery at 230lbs I myself would have probably gotten out and blame drs as well. To fully understand this bbl and lipo u must fully do researches I realize from being here and reading for a year that most are still as to thinkinng its going to change your weight no it doesn't. ..


With lipo I've read that the most drs will get out is 5-7 lbs if that much.... to me lipo is an enhancer or as I like to think of it a tecnique to contour imo, at my bmi at the time I was 80lbs overweight that a big effing deal and when I think of I wonder how does one person at my age and being a beautiful girl get to this ? I had to change...and at one point before knowing much about this lipo thing I myself thought it was a Weighloss fix... but soon after I found that not to be so and I'm still not there i was stuck 50lbs until I realize I was in plateau stage so I had switch up my calorie intake again to fit with a slimmer physique because my body was holding on to fat because it thought I was in starvation mode and that is why I hadn't lost a 1lb in months I realize that the Skinner you get the harder it is to lose weight .

I'm not an expert on weightloss but I'm recommending that you lose it because it is healthier anesthesia wise as well and you just look and feel better...I'm still gunning for 30lbs more and the fact that I'm a food addict doesn't help! No joke I'm a diagnosed food addict story of my life I see food I start sweating and I'm around it daily how nice but its because I'm determined to beat this crap ..don't get me wrong being on this diet I've had days I just binge eat and later regret when I gain 5lbs then I jump right back on let me tell it's not easy fat or being a overeater is something I wouldn't whish on my worst every it's a constant daily battle sometimes I look around and see others just being normal with food but I can't be that person because I have this paasion for food it pisses me off! But goodluck on your weight loss journeys.
I can so relate to your post about food. Must be very bitter sweet for you considering your profession.....your probably amazing at what you do

Excuse the typo's and missing words, it's something I do all the time because I'm always rushing or my tablet will just put whatever in auto correct but we get it lol.
I must applaud you on your journey thus far girl. You're definitely doing it right. You're looking better every step and God is with you more so since the passing of your dad. You're also right about weight loss before surgery, I was 176 n went thru some stress I ended up dropping down to 156 right before surgery, I got nervous because I didn't think I had enough fat but Dr. Jones reassured me he could make it happen. Let me tell you I have the body I've dreamt about!!! You got this!!!

Thank you msbn1, yes it is quite important to be somewhere around your ideal weight before surgery I didn't want to be one that came out complaining thinking there's gonna be some magic after getting out , I had a big gutt and big arms and broad shoulders. . there's no way I could have gone under that way..thank you ,you look good aswell.

I know exactly what you mean; I'm hippy w/ a pretty face and nice boobs. Guys Get excited when they see me coming, but as soon as they get a glimpse of my booty or the lack thereof, they're not interested! From the front, it look like I got ass, but oh how looks can be Deceiving!

what happened to the vets?

And just disappear on us is one of thee most dissapointing experiences I've had on realself. I know lifw does go on but jezze! Others helped you guys to get through this preop phase , we've all asked questions , got answers from other vets but I realize that most of the more uninformative vets have just disappeared on us, don't you think it would be nice to pay it forward? I look at so many reviews and either they erased pics or almost immediately after surgery you disappear, it's frustrating as I'm on here looking for people I've known since last year and it's either they didn't update many moons ago or they simply forgot where they were supported preop... it's just frustrating I hope I don't one of those lol! Excluding people that has major issues or bigger priorities than real self I get it because I've gone through it where ii even turned of all notification from here just to heal...but I'm sure this nit the case for everyone. I'm just saying give us something jehsus! :((
