BBL 1 Week Countdown-August 13th w/ Dr. Salama

I honestly have been considering the surgery for years but was always too afraid to go through with it. Finally decided to go for it as a gift to myself for my 30th Birthday. I'm 5'9" and right now at my heaviest weight Im 160lbs. Not sure if I will actually have enough fat but I will soon find out. Kinda upset that the soonest opening is in October. Especially since my 30th Birthday is September 29th. Don't know what to do! I will upload my pictures later.

Hi there, thanks so much for sharing your journey with us. Dr. Salama seems to be very popular, based on the number of ladies here that use him. I know the newer community members all have dates in September/October so he must be pretty busy. I've heard you can ask to be put on a cancellation list, you may also find someone who wants to swap dates! Please keep us updated on your progress.

I paid my deposit and booked my bbl for Friday, October 5, 2012. I am so excited!!! I'm so grateful that this site exist and that you girls were willing to share so much of your journey. The information was invaluable! I felt confident selecting Dr. Salama as my surgeon. Now I know what to expect pre and post surgery. Thanks again!

I believe that I found my ideal butt. I came across the wish pic on another profile so I do not know who the woman is. Please let me know if you know her name. I would like to google more pics of her to be sure that is what I want.

@sandy & @dimples... I am so happy that there are other bbl girls who are my height. The height on the majority of the profiles were 5'5" and below. I'm all legs with a short torso. Dr. S wants me to gain more weight.

Thanks and I'm excited for you as well. At least your countdown isn't as long as mine. I'm already sick of being fat and eating like a pig. Don't know how I am going to make it. I keep reminding myself that it is for the best results but my goodness it's hard.

I'm excited and upset at the same time. Once, I settled with my October date and made all of my travel arrangements I just found out that I got accepted into the Masters program I applied to. Bad news is that it starts in September and there is no way I would be able to have my surgery in October. Please, Please, please switch with me! I need a August date desperately!

Hey BBL Ladies! I'm excited to announce that I was able to switch my surgery from October to August! Thanks to the wonderful Nicki86. I'm so hyped that I don't know what to do. My nervousness seems to be kicking in as well. Whatever, I have to get past it. Now I'm on a mission to take care of my important details; travel arrangements, husband schedule, taking my vitamins, packing and finding a clinic to get my clearance for surgery. I will keep you all updated.

Hey Ladies! I'm prepping for travel to florida for my August BBL. As I gather my items and make shopping list, I was wondering...Do I need to pack panties? If I do need them...what size should I buy to accommodate my new booty? I feel silly asking but this is probably the best place. Please let me know what is the most comfortable option after surgery. Also, let me know if you have any tips for items that you couldn't live without during recovery. Thanks Ladies! I can't wait to hear your suggestions.

I'm officially on the less than a month away countdown to my new body. The good news is that I gained all of the weight that Dr. Salama requested plus some additional. Last week when I weighed myself I was 188 lbs. I have never been this big in my life. It's too hot for me to be fat. I'm also tired to my thighs rubbing (which they have never done), I'm tired of hiding from people I know, and I'm tired of eating junk food. I have become friends with the staff at Taco Bell. They have to know my order by heart, lol! I can't wait to eat healthy and workout again. Grilled fish and veggies...here I come! Luckily, my husband doesn't notice the weight. Everytime I complain about the fat he tells me that he doesn't notice the weight and compliments me on my beauty. The positive comments help me stay confident. I love him for that!

Hey Ladies! Only 21 days left until my BBL surgery. I can't believe that is right around the corner. I went to have my blood work and EKG done today. Lab work takes about 4 days. So until then I have to wait. My next posting will be to let know if I was cleared for surgery or not. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Where are you going for surgery?

Oh wow. Ok. I can't wait to see your results. Your surgery is around the corner. Are you excited, nervous or both?

Hi Ladies! I found out this morning that I was cleared for surgery. I immediately booked my flights and finished buying my items needed for the trip. I went to fill my prescriptions at Sam's Club but was informed that they wont fill the pain killer because the dr is out of state. Now I have to wait until I get to Florida to get my prescriptions. Just one week left until I leave. I have a redeye flight on Saturday and arrive on Sunday morning. My pre-op appointment with Dr. Salama is later that day. My surgery is Monday. All I have to do is pack. I'm so nervous...yikes!
