I have the same body shape as you. I love your results! I'm a big chicken too!! I hope recovery is quick. I'm getting a P-ez, a boppy pillow, and will be taking Glutamine and protein after to help my muscles recover. And will be drinking lots of water.

you looks great, I don't understand is that he charges now up to 8500 and I've noticed when I call they don't have the same prices that the patients before got. its starting to become annoying , and its not based of your body she said they start off at that price! I really wanted to go there since I already live in houston

Did you end up getting the BBL with Dr. Lapuerta? I have an appointment on Dec 18, and i'm a bit nervous. I've read some of these comments and they scare me, then I look at the results and i'm like wow.

did you stay over night? I'm trying to decide if I should stay overnight. It costs a little more. How long after were you able to take care of yourself?
  • Reply
Yes I stayed overnight and it was money well spent staying at the hospital. You honestly need to be watched overnight. I left the hospital till the next day at 8pm. My husband stayed with me at the hospital. He helped out a lot and the nurses as well. I recovered at my parents, the first week was really tough especially the first 3,4 days. I went back to work after 2 weeks but i was still in a bit of pain but was able to move around. Laying on your stomach everyday all day gets annoying, but now after 5months im better and feeling better. Trust me its worth the pain. After your surgery and you see how the clothes fit you will know all that pain and money was worth it lol

That is helpful to know! I'm scheduled for the 18th of dec. so close to the holidays. I have someone to take care if me the first 5 days. I hope I can move around better by then. The doctor said I'm only going to have 7small incisions from the Lipo and fat xfer and injecting about 800cc. I'm not a big girl so he hopes to get at least 1600 cc of fat cells. Thanks for replying! You look great!!
