This doctors work is amazing, take a look a his previous patients reviews! And see for yourself:)

I am about 5'4, currently 154 lbs (on a bad day), good days I may weigh in at 148 - 150lbs which is where I want to be, but I don't work out. For as far as I can remember, I'm 25 years old, I've always hated my sides (love handles) because no matter how much I worked out it would never change, my abs were on point but not them love handles. My prom dress was one of Ashanti's Grammy dresses an my stomach was out, the reason I chose this dress was because it showcased my strong and confident areas and hid my weak areas. I've since learned how to accentuate the good, and cover the bad providing the most wanted illusion of a nice shape. I cant wait I have about 4 more weeks, I want to start exercising, and begin those MLD massages because I hear it helps speed recovery. I have filled all my prescriptions, except pain medications because I have to do it there. I am staying at the Hyatt which is about 10 mins out.
The countdown begins....

#enjoyself, because originally I was scheduled with Dr.Hegg until I saw her results my fiance and I we're like WOW I have to go with him, and luckily enough I was able to get a date not to far from the date I had with Dr. Hegg.

#optimistic143, I took her after photos to show Dr. S, because he did a great job at sculpting her waist and bottom!!

#caramella1, for posting the list of things needed for surgery, I know it took alot of your time, Oh n her results are faboulous too!!

I'm almost 3 weeks away, to be exact I'm 4 weeks 0...

I'm almost 3 weeks away, to be exact I'm 4 weeks 0 days 18 hours 2 minutes away... I can't stop thinking about it!!!!! Preop bloodwork is scheduled for Wednesday April 18, I know I'm behind I didn't realize I could've did this all last week. Anyways, I'll be posting more before pics as I get closer to sx date, and I hope to begin some form of cardio tomorrow not to lose but to moreso get my body ready. I haven't been advised on rather I need vitamins yet so I guess that is all pending my lab work. hopefully everything will be fine! Adios BBL amigas:)

I'm so excited, but I'm patiently waiting... So...

I'm so excited, but I'm patiently waiting... So far I've done nothing, after receiving my labwork and clearance letter I was not advised to take anything however I have been taking prenatal vitamins for the iron and vitamin C content. Other than that, I'm all ready to go, I will not do any shopping until the day of or the weekend before because that will help with calm some of my anxiety (cus ill have something to do besides twiddle my thumbs and wait) My bf/fiance is coming with me so I hope the night before we can do something fun and relaxing before reality hits and I'm strucked with the pain and discomfort of the procedure. Other than if any one has any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to voice them... Toodles!!!

Surgery today: so far so good the feeling is more so and uncomfotable soreness but not so much pain, you will feel it more in the areas lipoed which for me was abdomen and full back and sides, i will update more later but thx for the prayers! Tea
BBL, love yalll and thx for the support....

Post op Day #5: Wow guys, all i can say is prayer...

Post op Day #5: Wow guys, all i can say is prayer works! I have had the most amazing recovery, after reading everyones reviews I was expecting the worse (extreme swelling, insomnia, pain, nausea, vomiting, etc)... It was nothing like that, but every ones body heals differently. From the day of surgery, I came home I was told to eat, antime you take medications esp antibiotics and pain meds you should eat, I started off with clear liquids and soups for the first few days, those healthy choice spups have 6g protein in some of them, I drank gatorade for the most part i mean almost 6-8 small bottles a day, I took my pain med around the clock not jus whn i was in pain. I started MLD massages Postop Day #2 (thursday) with Eilyn and I have been getting them everyday since... I only take pain med now when i wake up bc my body is real stiff snd when i goto sleep. I get up a walk around a lot... Here are some pics day after surgery

Okay guys, I know its been a while since I been...

Okay guys, I know its been a while since I been here but I've been recovering, I did not go back to work until I was 4 weeks post op, I've continued getting massages even after the 10 Dr. S suggested. It's best to continue them until you feel that you are fully back to normal because for me they feel good and they help with scar tissue and smoothing of the skin. Next, I see alot of you all are depending on Salama to give you these extreme results which he will not deliver and I'm not saying it to discredit any of his work because he is an amazing doctor. But hey, you get what you pay for!!! Even some of his best patients still need/want touch ups. Nonetheless, he did a good job on me luckily I did not have these grand expectations because i would've been left disappointed, I did this more so to enhance my overall shape not necessarily to get a big ole' booty. So, needless to say my waist is so much smaller and my azz is wayyy rounder, THANKS to DR. S... However, after spending so much money and going through such a long recovery I can still use a few touch ups, in the bra strap area and I want more projection. My fiance and my family all say there's not much of a difference I just look like I'm more in shape than before, my butt does look more curvier tho. Okay im done, here are some pics...

I never sat for the whole 4 weeks unless I was...

I never sat for the whole 4 weeks unless I was getting a massage on my tummy which didnt last more than 15 mins. I don't have any pre/post measurements. So I just adjusted my ratings for the Doc, if you have any questions let me know, continue reading where i briefly breakdown my reasons for most of the questions:
I met with the Dr. breifly before suregery then I was taking back to have the surgery, the doc does not have much bedside manner I think he is too busy to focus on the patient much, I never heard from anyone post surgery except for my massage therapists eilyn who I still speak with now she is awesome, wait times were atrocious, i swear this place was ran like a clinic instead of a multimillion dollar enterprise, because we all know they making the big bucks.

Updated pics! Butt has went down quite a bit but still sexy & cute...
Moises Salama, MD

Dr S. is really busy so I've only seen him twice once right before surgery and the day after for my follow up... The office is very busy and its not that big, so sometimes there may be a wait!

Hey Girl. U scheduled my bbl with hegg. But I love Salama's work. I paid my 500 dollar dep. good luck!
  • Reply
You scheduled with Dr. Hegg?? Whyyyy, girl I'm telling you Dr. S is the truth, technique wise he is so experienced with this procedure... However, Dr. H was my first choice before I saw Dr. S work, but make sure your expectations are realistic and I'm sure you'll be fine... Dr. S exceeded my expectations!!! I wish you the best and let me know if you have any questions or concerns!!! When is your date?

August 22. I love Salama's work. I have some time I NEED to use up in aug I couldnt get an appt. The othe issue is the travel. Idk if I can handle it. Dr. S. is awesome, he is an artist. Whats the deal with the board and foam dr S. uses? i keep hearing about it. how you feeling?
  • Reply
I feel fine, and yes he is an artist! the board and foam I was told is used to provide extra contouring to your waist and help reduce the swelling. But idk if that's really working, however back in my home town the PS office that I goto for massages say they have a lot of patients who come from other places with that like Columbia or Mexico, and the way Salama does with us having drains in and starting massages so soon postop is also something they usually hear from people who have went out the country to get work so IDK girl I'm just ready to be back to normal already, I'm tired of sleeping on my stomach!
