Yes. Definitely get a female urinal, gauze, a water bottle, lots of fruit, Gatorade, maybe some protein shakes in case you don't have an appetite, vitamins for post surgery swelling & healing (make me heal.com) some pads in case you start your cycle, & get your medications filled before you leave.

Hey ladies just a little update! Just got of bed...

Hey ladies just a little update! Just got of bed to walk around the house and get something to eat. My nurse advised me to be on a low sodium diet for now due to all the swelling because it will actually make u swell more, so she told me to eat high protein foods for now. I don't have any pain just a lot of soreness around the areas I had lipo so it's hard to get in and out of bed, other than that I feel pretty good. I have some post op pics with my garment on that I will post in a little bit, I'll post some pics with the garment off in a few days!! Thanks ladies ttyl

Glad things went well, how many cc's u got? Hoping u have an easy healing.
Reply
Thanks nicki86 I feel a lot better today still sore though!! I don't know how many cc's I got yet I'll find out on friday when I see the doctor.

Hi sisters it's day 3 and I'm feeling do much...

Hi sisters it's day 3 and I'm feeling do much better the soreness is already starting to go away. My abs and butt are still kind of hard but they are starting to soften up a little. Can't wait for my drains to be removed that's the only real issue I have right now, my stomach is super flat and I love it my butt sits up pretty nice and is very perky and I cant wait to try some clothes on lol. I didn't want a donk I just wanted a much more noticeable butt that stood out from what I had and my doctor gave me exactly what I wanted. I haven't noticed any volume loss everything pretty much looks the same and I hope it stays that way. So sisters so far I love my results cuz my body is banging, my sis in laws can't believe how great I look already!! I'll update you guys in a couple of days tyyl
you look great

Hey ladies today is day 4 and I feel good!! Tried on some of my favorite jeans and I can't believe how amazing I look in them. I love it sisters, I go in tomorrow for my 2nd ultrasound massage and can't wait. My lipo areas are still sore and I massage them on my own from time to time and it makes it feel so good. So can't wait to go in tomorrow, as each day goes by I feel better and better and can't wait to be fully recovered. I absolutely love my results my butt is not huge it's just the right size for me and I love the way I look. With my new flat belly it makes it look bigger than expected but its ok because i am definitely satisfied with the entire outcome. I'll update u ladies in a couple of days when I meet with the doctor, I really want to know how many cc's I got and if he used everything he took out!! Ttyl
thank you

Ok so I was scheduled for my second ultrasound...

Ok so I was scheduled for my second ultrasound massage today and I couldn't get it :-(. This morning I suddenly felt a really bad burning sensation on the left side of my stomach and I was so scared. It hurt soooooo bad ladies the pain was unbareable, when I got there as soon as they touched that spot I was in the worst pain ever. They told me that it was the anesthesia and it's nothing to worry about but I couldn't take the pain. Another assistant came in to see where the pain was and to see if he could help, he figured out exactly what it was. It was the drain he said that sometimes the feeling in that area is numb for a few days and when the sensation in those nerves come back it could be very painful. He removed the tube and I immediately felt relief I couldn't believe it. I'm feeling soooooo much better ladies my ultrasound was rescheduled and my other 2 drains will be removed this Thursday!!! Can't wait, well that's all for now ladies ttyl

Lol I took my last pill yesterday afternoon and I was so scared of how I would feel after they wore off but nothing yet feeling good.

Ok ladies its been 1 week and ill be 2 weeks on thursday. I feel great and i love my new body, I look amazing in most of my clothes! I have a few dresses that dont fit like they should because of my back being curved in now, theres lots of space back there and it looks real ugly. But thats not bad news I just have to get a smaller size now which is great, the bad part is that I havent even worn those dresses yet!!! :-( Anywho I have another follow up on thursaday as well as my last free ultrasound massage, ill decide on thursday whether or not im going to purchase a few more. I posted a few new pics my waist seems to be getting smaller and smaller as the days go by and Im so happy. Ill update again in another week to let you ladies know how everything is doing. TTYL

Went in today for a follow up and my 3 ultrasound massage!!! Had some fluid build up on the right side of my stomach do the doctor drained it for me. I was so scared because I hate needles but it wasn't that bad at all since I'm still kind of numb in that area. I found out today that I get one free session of smooth shapes I'm so happy and excited. Can't wait for next week the doctor says I look great and for 2 weeks my results are incredible. I was told by the assistant that a lot of patients don't see my type of results for about a month or so she was surprised by how I looked today!!! I'll update you ladies on how the smooth shapes goes next week!! Toodles sisters ttyl

Thanks SO much for ur post. I am scheduled with Dr L for Dec 10th. I was getting worried because I have not seen anybody that has been his until you. Your results are nice! Have you gone down much since the bbl? Did you continue to heal fast?
Reply
Hey stillsexy thanks hun, yes u have lost some volume but not to much because my butt pretty much looks the same just no swelling. Healing is going very well swelling is almost gone but I'm still sore around the sides. Other than that the recovery has been a breeze for me.

Hey girls sorry I haven't been on in a while,...

Hey girls sorry I haven't been on in a while, first off I'm so pissed at the staff at lagrasso office. I think I have given them more than enough time to get the info that I requested about the amount of cc's taken out and put into my butt. Still I have no info and I'm pissed to the core, I called and was told to come in today to get the info and when I got there they had nothing besides the amount that was taken out which I already knew. I'm not blaming lagrasso because it's the responsibility of the surgical techs to make sure that they put all info into my chart. They told me that they will have the doctor call me tomorrow but that doesn't make things better because it's been 4 weeks already and that info should of been in my chart from the beginning. Anyways I'll be waiting to hear from lagrasso tomorrow, I went for a consult today for the exilis treatment and the specialist told me that it was not an option for me right now since I just had surgery. She said that I'm still recovering and my stomach still has some swelling and that I should wait at least 6 months for the treatment. She advised me that it's still early and from the looks of my results with time and recovery I may not even need the treatment. My stomach will continue to lose inches and my skin will continue to tighten for the next couple of months so I shouldn't be worried about my loose skin right now at all. She kind of gave me a relief with her advise so I'll just wait and see she told me to continue with my massages and to wear my garment for a couple of more months. Other then that everything is all good still loving my results, my waist is super small smaller than its ever been and I'm so happy. I want to shout out nycutie for her post about the garment she got from lipoexpress, I just got mines today and that thing is the real deal Holyfield!!!! Lol u girls need to check out the site their garments are the best, I've tried 2 others and they don't compare what so ever. I got a 2xs just to give u guys an idea of how small my waist has gotten. Thanks nycutie for the tip, ttyl sisters!!!! :-)
hey doll how are u feeling girly :)

Hey booski!!! Feeling great hun my sides are still sore when I get the smooth shapes I brace myself!! It's like whoa but other than that I'm loving everything.

Hey ladies!!!! I'm 6 weeks post op today yayyyyy!!! Anyways I'm feeling great swelling is almost gone completely, today I had another smooth shapes and it hurt like hell!!! I also saw the doctor and he took some pics, almost everyone in the office can't believe how small my waist is and how great I look!!!!! I'm super satisfied with my results and wouldn't change anything. I measured my self this weekend and my waist is 27 in and butt is 40 in, I wish I would have measured myself before the surgery but I didn't!! If you ladies have any questions feel free to ask and enjoy the new pics!!!

Hey! When did you go from wearing the full garment to just the waist clicher?
Reply
Hey sweets!!! I stopped wearing the full garment 24/7 maybe about 2 weeks now. At 4 weeks I started to wear it only at night and I would wear the clincher during the day. At 8 weeks I stopped wearing the full garment all together and now I just wear the clincher during the day all day but I don't sleep with it. Hope this helps

Thanks doll. I was wondering if the full garment would be smushing the butt away or not lol. I know I'm going to be booty conscience

Hey ladies here are some pics with some jeans on, I was determined to put these on lol!!! I had just purchased them and only worn them once before surgery, after week one I tried to put them on and they would not even budge over my butt. Today after all the swelling is down I finally got them on and it took foreverrrrrrrr, It kind of even looks like the jeans are squishing my butt. Well idc I spent $200 on those jeans and I'm not giving them away anytime soon!!! Lol

Hey ladies just a little update today I'm 3 months...

Hey ladies just a little update today I'm 3 months post op yayyyyyyyyy, went in for a follow up with my doctor and everything is fine!!!! Took a few new pics and finally got the info that I've been waiting on, soooooooo the doc removed 3500 cc's of fat out of my body which I believe is the legal limit and drum roll pleasssssseeeee......... I got 750 cc's injected into each cheek!!!! Like huh???? I was confused for a little bit and disappointed at the same time, I was hoping that he would say that I got at least 1000 cc's injected into each cheek. I'm not saying that I'm not satisfied with my results but damn!!!!! I mean I guess I do have to take into consideration that all the fat removed could not have possibly been used, after its extracted it does have to be purified and only the good portion can be injected. Also I'm very petite I'm only 5 feet, weighed 130 lbs and had some butt before I went into this :-( I guess thats the amount my cheeks would take. Anyways overall I'm satisfied with my results EVERYONE notices a difference in my butt especially and I really don't have any complaints. If I had a chance to this all over again I would definitely get it done with no questions asked, maybe it's a good thing it's not bigger than it is because I've had ppl ask me if I got butt shots and I was like HELL NO!!! Lol, if it was any bigger they would really think its fake!!! Ill be updating my pics soon with the before and after pics from my docs office I'm so excited I can't wait to see them. Here's a few pics I took tonight, if u ladies have any questions feel free to ask. Until next time sisters smooooccchhheezzzz

Oh yea I forgot to mention ladies I no longer wear any garment or waist clincher all day. I work out 3-4 days a week and that's the only time I wear my waist clincher now and I've been doing that for the past 2 weeks!!

Ok ladies so I just the first set of before and after pics from the doctors office still waiting on the other angles that were taken. I will post them as soon as I get them, but ladies I want you guys to be the judge and let me know what you think. In my opinion I think the doctor could have done a better job with my butt, like I said before its not like I went into this with a flat booty. I mean I'm no saying he didn't do a good job I just think he could have done better, he didn't give me a bigger butt in my opinion he just made it more fuller than it was but bigger I have to say I don't think so. Yes EVERYBODY says my butt looks bigger but I concur, maybe it's just me but I don't know I'll let you guys be the judge. Honest views and opinions ladies I love you sisters thank you!!! :-)

Lol, anyways I'm happy with my results my clothes look amazing on me my butt looks so full and juicy I don't regret having this surgery it was definitely worth it. My stomach looks awesome can't believe it's so flat, hopefully I won't fall into my bad eating habits and develop another gut lol we'll see. Ill update again and post pics at maybe 9 or 10 months!! Talk to you ladies later thanks for the support smoochezzzz

Hey ladies its been 9 months and I'm so glad I did this surgery. I have no regrets at all I love the way I look and everyone else does too!!! Lol, if anyone has any questions feel free to ask my body is 100% back to normal I'm so happy. I still wear my waist cincher from time to time just during the day when I'm at work and while I'm working out. I get compliments on my waist and how small it is all the time. Women always ask how did u get your waist to be so tiny I just giggle and say nothing!! Lol, people think I model I'm like no I wish!!! Lol anyways good luck to all the new comers and the ladies that are still recovering its a long road but its worth it. Later gals
Hey..U look soooooo good! I am going to Dr Lagrasso mid June. What garments do you suggest to buy for that perfect shape? Does your waist cincher hurt?
Reply
Hey Hun thanks so much, which office are u going to?? They should be providing u with 2 garments, I didn't buy any all I bought was my waist cincher and board for my stomach. The cincher doesn't hurt at all it is a little tight at first but as your waist gets smaller its a breeze. The one that I purchased was from lipoexpress and I think it's the best one out there, great compression and an awesome shaper I love it. You can find it on eBay way cheaper than the actual site just search lipoexpress and it'll pull up all the garments and cinchers on sale.
