So i know i promised to come back and update, by now most of you prob forgot but i wanted to wait atleast 12 weeks to give a review bc thats when they say you should see more permanent results. i'm 8 weeks PO and i'm not too happy overall, i will give detailed review later after i get feedback from Dr. S sending my pics in tomorrow. I have pockets of fat still on my back by the bra area that wasn't lipo'ed. I have whats either fat or swelling in my love handles makign them stick out, but its been like that since 1 day PO. My left butt check is PURPLE AND BLUE STILL!! i cant evne wear a one peice let alone a 2 peice bikini bc of my discolored butt cheek, one butt cheek. SIGH. My thighs are still the same size so it doesn't seem like i should have even gotten them done, shoulda took all the fat out my back instead. AND i have this big @$$ crease above my booty that hideous still. Yes my booty is bigger but with everything else going on with my body i can't enjoy it. I have more width than projection which would have been nice to get more projection. Like i said I'm going to wait to get another update from Dr. S i'm mostly concerned with my booty still being purple/blue thats not normal, he says it bruising but i'm like brusing from what? that blue color didn't happen till a couple weeks ago.

So what i expected was true... i have fat necrosis in my left cheek where it is blue/purple in color. IT IS THE SIZE OF A FREAKIN BASEBALL IN WIDTH,!!!!!!!!!! I don't think Dr. S knows the severity of necrosis bc i have to update him with the size of the dead fat. This is NOT normla what so ever, its hard and hurts when i bump up against something or if i smack it. but if i just touch my cheek it feels numb. so the superficial layer in numb and the deep layer hurts when pressure is applied. I still have this ugly crease which makes me think maybe too much fat was taking out that area.....Now i may nee a circular TT if this skin doesn't tighten up. Initially he said the necrosis could go away but if it doesn't i can correct it. I'm guessing too much fat was placed in that area and it didn't have a blood supply. Ok golfball and small i can understand the chances but a huge 4-6 inch spot on my butt of ALL dead clumped fat? I cannot accept that as an appropriate risk with good technique. Not bashing him but this needs to be corrected if I don't see a difference. I'm working out hard core now to lose some weight and tone so I'm trying on my own to correct this. I'll post pics this weekend, gotta have someone take them for me.

Still not happy, its a waiting game to see what Dr.S is going to suggest. I'm tired of looking at my discolored @ss. I'm tired of this crease, I'm tired of the pockets of fat left on my back, I'm tired of my uneven thighs, jiggly stomach and love handles. Sigh Patience be with me. I'm not waiting a full year for revision work. I'm giving Dr. S a chance to fix it but if he won't (which will be VERY dissapointing) I will look at options in MX

I should update my actual booty results: My booty is def bigger, fuller, rounder, jigglier than before. Besides the necrotic fat I do like my booty, if i had to tweak one thing it would be to fill in the mid part of the booty just to round it out a bit more. But i do like how jiggle and full it is. It measures 49/50" and i started at i think 45/46

So i'm still with a hard left discolored butt cheek, why me? why am i the only one with a discolored @ss. so pissed everytime i see it. i digress. So i been waiting patiently for a few weeks on a date in may and I have yet to receive a date or a call back. The scheduler keeps emailing saying "workign on it " sigh i will NOT go into summer like this. So my back up plan is dr. Pantoja, quoted me for 4500 for a TT and all inclusive lipo w/fg if this hard spot isn';t going to be a problem. Difference between salama and the mexico docs is that salama puts the fat in superficially (above the muscle) mexico docs put it in the muscle so i'm hoping that since it scar tissue superficially i won't have a problem getting it in the muscle...we will see. I tried to give Dr. Salama a chance to fix this but its not looking like thats going to happen. Soo mad i paid over 6k and not happy with my results....crease above booty, loose flank and belly skin, no difference in my thighs,,,only thing diff is my butt size and hip size, my overall shape is better. If his office contact me about a date I may still consider him since the revision price is so great.
