Hello my BBL Ladies! please excuse me for not updating before but i have kids and a husband lol so for you that know how that is, you can imagine my 3 kids (including my husbad lol) keep me BUSY.
Ok, so now straight to the point.( am gonna try to make this short as possible). My husband and i arrive in Aventura june 15 2012, around 5:45 pm, oh, let me say that they did NOT call me to let me know when i was going to see Dr. Salama for my consultation nor my surgery time :/ i had to call the office when i was in Dallas waiting for my 2nd flight and they told me that i was going to see Dr. Salama the next day at 11 am, (the same day of my surgery) and that i was schedule for surgery at 2pm. i just thought that was something that i should have known a fews days prior. i did not wanted to seem too pushy so was waiting on them to call but never did, just thought this was something i should mention.
june 16 2012 (day of surgery)
my consultation was at 11 am, and since i wasnt schedule for surgery until 2pm, i got ready to go meet dr salama, so i wanted to look as pretty as possible lol so u know how that is, make up on, manicure, etc.. well, i received a call from Nancy, saying to meet at 11:30 instead of 11, or even 12 if i wanted to. but i still decided to get there at 1130 and i did, but dr salama was not there, let me mention that dr salama has 2 different buildings,one for consultations, follow ups, massages, etc, but his operating room is in another building , where it used to be a bank, at a fair driving distance tough. i think dr salama berly started on his own(but cannot say i am sure of that, that is just my conclusion), so this place isnt fancy at all, just a room where things get done! His office there is pretty descent though. oh, the restroom from there, do need to be in better shape, as my expience was not a very pleasent one, they need to keep it CLEANER (hopefully if someone from their office read this, which i know they read us, hehe, take it into consideration as constructive critism) :) i am sure Dr salama will eventually get a nicer place (me making conclusions again lol)
well back to where i was, so i arrive to the so called "consultation" but only nancy was there, ( i thought i was going to meet salama and discuss surgery etc but that was not the case) and i was there just to fill out a bunch of papers, thing that had to be done the day before, but they said it was too late. i filled alot of papers, almost felt like when we bought our house, never ending papers. Nancy is a very attractive petite women who has this "sweet" tone of voice BUT showed no professionalism( just want to state that was MY case). ive read lots of comments here on Realself about her, but for ME, MY experience with Nancy left me and my husband with an empty taste. being nice doesnt mean talk to me in a soft little voice,instead get your job done PROFESSIONALLY and SHOW me how profesional you are. well when i was filling all those papers she said dr had finished a surgery earlier than planned so that i could go into surgery as soon as i was done with all the paper stuff, (remember, this was supposed to be a consultation only so i had makeup on, nail polish on, earrings, etc etc) she handed me a paper and said those were my INSTRUCTIONS prior the surgery where it stated "NO MAKE UP, NO NAIL POLISH, NO DEODORANT, NO JEWELRY" ETC ETC, which i knew of everything except the DEODORANT part, but i was just going in for consulation right? so i had all of the above on me, it would of being nice if NANCY or someone else from the staff would have called me the DAY BEFORE to at LEAST let me know of these instructions. but NO, they didnt even call to let me know at what time i was going to have surgery, how in the world would they call me for instructions. anyways, i do not know what she told dr salama, but i was been RUSHED to go to the operationg rooom, i think she told him i was ALL READY to show up at any moment, which was NOT true!!! she unprofessionally told me to just remove the nail polish from 2 finger nails and to go straight there :/ i mean, i wasnt at mc donalds or any other fast food chain! i was literally putting my life at risk, and for some reason they ask you to remove all of the above for surgery, so why was she rushing me like that?! cuz SHE was in a hurry and had something to do afterwards so was trying to get me out of the way, so she could leave that office right away since she was the only one there, and she did admitted to have something to do after meeting me.(she even apologized for dressing sexy and not in her proper uniform, which i didnt care at all lol, not my business, but she did say it was cuz she was going somewhere) i told her i would need to go back to the place where we were staying at to get nail polish remover and take a shower because i had make up on and deodorant, but she then said "hmm... let me see your nails again, hmm..maybe you could go just like that,just take your earrings off " but i refused! so i went back to our condominum and remove nail polish a took a BRIEF shower(trust me it wasnt more than 3 mins) to completely remove the deororant and there was nancy calling again to RUSH me, and then again, i felt so unconfortable with the situation. dr salama was probably lied n told i was already on my way, when i was still filling papers, so he does NOT really know what is going on at the other office when he is not there. she called me again when i was berly going out of the condo, i am telling you this women got on my husbands nerves and lost his respect by acting like that. he was sooo irriated to say the least by the whole situation, besides finding out that i wouldnt get breast implants cuz according to NANCY that was something i shud of discuss with dr.. salama the day before haha! sweet! :/ the day they i arrived and if it wasnt for me , they wud of never called to give me info on my surgery, hillarious! plus they said i was arriving too late (5;45) but months prior to that, NANCY said it didnt matter at what time i arrive to aventura, that they will take me in to meet dr salama but was not true. so, she said that for me to get my implants, they would have to order them a day before to have them there on surgery day!!!! so it was obvious that i HAD to be seen the they i arrived. but oh well, at the end it didnt matter whether dr salama see me a day before or the same day, and i will tell you why next.
arrival at the operating room. ok, how do i say this? i have to be OBJECTIVE!
Let me say that was the SCARIEST situation ive been though in my life haha! Literally. my husband and i get there, Monica the nurse tells me to go into the operating room as soon as we saw her. Did not introduced herself, she only asked me" are you " " ? i said yes and kind of pushes me by my back(gently of course) and says "ok DR IS READY!!!!" and i looked at my husband, he looks at me, and i said "oh first we need to have my official consultation with him, can my husband come in with me so we can meet him first?" she says "NO, EVERYTHING IS READY, WE ARE JUST WAITING FOR YOU TO GET STARTED AND YOUR HUSBAND CANNOT COME IN WITH YOU, HE CAN LEAVE NOW, WE'LL CALL YOU SIR, WHEN SHES DONE" :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
"BOOM!" i felt like my heart went down to my feet in a matter of seconds. i insisted my husband and i needed to meet dr salama BEFORE going straight into surgery... and when i was about to say that i would NOT go into surgery (because honestly i woudnt go into surgery just like that, and without my husband meeting the man i was gonna trust my life to, who would do that? not me!) then i found out it was all MISCOMMUNICATION between the staff, dont know exactly what happen but they OBVIOUSLY had no idea, they were just waiting to operate on me , iguess. my husband said he was about to tell to get the hell out of there lol he got nervous with all these going on, lol.
We finally meet dr salama, told him about my whole experience and said he wouldnt go into surgery either in a case like mine(but i insist it was all a misunderstanding due to lack of communication). He has a VERY serious character, at least with me, he explains he wont do breast augmentation because hes NO LONGER DOING COMBINED PROCEDURES WITH BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT. so i had no problem with that because i wouldnt compromise my bbl , but it would of being nice if they had let me know about that before, and not get me by surprise the SAME day. so he drew on me, told me about the procedure, what he could fix, what he couldn't fix , the risks, expectations etc etc.
