Best recovery houses in DR? Help Needed!

Hello Ladies of RS, First time posting here,...

Hello Ladies of RS,

First time posting here, i'm usually on MMH! I just joined today but i'm not new to any of this. My journey started two years ago and i have finally decided on a Doc that is right for me! Thank God because this whole situation was becoming stressful!

Anyway, just to share a little about myself.

I'm 21 going to be 22 soon
5'8"
185 lbs (All boobs and thighs with no butt *Rolling my eyes*)

I will be having my surgery with Salama in november and i'm very excited! I was hoping and praying i could get an earlier date because i'd love to have this done before my birthday.

Anyone else headed to Dr. Salama?

I've been searching for someone to swap dates with but it looks like a lost cause .
I really can't wait until March, I'M GOING CRAZY LADIES!!!!!

With every passing day I get more and more...

With every passing day I get more and more terrified of the pain. I keep having horrible dreams of waking up from sx in extreme pain. This entire process is starting to weigh on my mind.

Smh, still looking for someone to switch dates...

Smh, still looking for someone to switch dates with.
I have a March 21st date and I'm willing to pay.
If you SERIOUS about swapping dates please contact.

Can any of you ladies tell me how long it takes...

Can any of you ladies tell me how long it takes for your butt to soften?
My boyfriend can't keep his hands off me right now, i can only imagine after the surgery.

The only thing is he's 100% against ANY TYPE of cosmetic surgery and i really don't want him to find out.

I guess my nerves are starting to set in, i don't...

I guess my nerves are starting to set in, i don't like it. I've never been one to get scared or nervous about anything, but this has me on edge. I'm not sure if it's the going under that scares me or the pain!

On another note for the ladies who have gone, how is the reaction to your new bodies? Do you ladies get grilled? My buddy from MMH said she gets stopped and talked about constantly, men and women.

So i have a new date and a new buddy! Thank You...

So i have a new date and a new buddy! Thank You Chica!

Thank you to all the ladies who commented and mesg'ed with advice and information!

Super excited, time to get things in order.

I'm thinking about buying a garment without the open crotch because i noticed it gives the bottom of the cheeks a square shape, idk what that's about..

The ladies who went, are you guys sitting on your booties yet?

So i brought my garment today!

I like it, i can't wait to try it on. Just hope it fits after the surgery.

Yes from my previous post I purchased a garment but now I'm thinking it may be too tight around the butt. Do you ladies have any suggestions?

So of course I couldn't keep a secret and spilled the beans to my cousin about my surgery in Dec. You know this chick tells me I shouldn't bother because the world is going to end 11 days after my surgery. I was just staring at her like "What you talkin' bout Willis".....

She was like I'm going to spend my last days really sore with a big ass.

Have any of you heard this garbage, now I'm not religious but I do believe in God. I also believe that no one knows when the end is coming.


Sorry for all this, I just had to share the convo I had with her
.. Good morning btw lol

How many garments do you recieve from Salama? I'm...

How many garments do you recieve from Salama? I'm hearing it's one, the one you get right after surgery.
Do you ladies change your garment once you get home, or do you just keep the one you've had since Miami.

And how many massages are included? Do you have to buy them in a package like deal?

Post-Op Ladies i feel for y'all, i really do. I...

Post-Op Ladies i feel for y'all, i really do.

I just recieved one of my Post-Op garments that i plan on using while my main one is in the wash and DAMN. This thing is sooooooo tight, and it was like trying to put an elephant in a turtle neck. I was sweating and jumping and shaking to get into that dang thing.

Garments are the DEVIL!!!

I've been on an ordering spree all week, i ordered...

I've been on an ordering spree all week, i ordered some ultra tight bodycon dresses as well as high waist pencil skirts.

I stumbled across the Vedette 340 garment and i fell in love y'all, it keeps your booty rounded at the bottom and i think that will protect you from having the bottom of your butt square out. It would keep it nice and rounded. I personally think that comes from have that open slit at the bottom of the garment. I know that the opening is helpful when using the bathroom but honestly i'd rather have to wash my garment repeatedly then be round at the top and square at the bottom. I think the reason it gives that look is because it pushes the fat toward the hole, i don't know but the garment is worth checking out.

Peace ladies..Oh i'll put a pic of it up...

I think this whole surgery thing is finally...

I think this whole surgery thing is finally starting to sink in... it's like I knew was getting surgery but it didn't really hit me until I saw my name on the scripts!!



Omg, I'm so excited ladies!!

Just purchased and started my vitamins, it seems like a lot to take. The guy in GNC was looking at me sideways and he was asking so many questions.

I had a question for you ladies about how to go about telling my doctor about this surgery. My Dr. is a older straight laced religious Jewish man. Then here I am a young bback women coming into the office asking for clearance so I can have lipoed fat stuffed into my booty. I feel so awkward about this and I don't know how to ask him.

Thank god for being the first surgery of the day!...

Thank god for being the first surgery of the day! I know i can't fast for too long lmao!
Plus being the first keeps me from thinking too hard about the surgery, super excited.

Going clothing shopping today too WOOT!

High waist skirt, bathing suits and bodycons....I can't wait for summer!

Just really down.

Just really down.

I just wanted to thank all of you for your kind...

I just wanted to thank all of you for your kind words and suggestions.

I was truly hurt a few days ago, my mom told me she might not be able to help me with the surgeyr and that i might have to reschedule. I thought i had a shoulder to cry on but instead he ripped my heart out, and pretends i don't even exist. I won't turn this into a soap opera because this post is supposed to be happy.

I've picked my head up, I'm feeling much better today and just trying to move forward. You have to be a very strong person to make it through this surgery so i guess this was Gods way of testing that. I would of failed if it wasn't for you guys!


Thank you ladies again!

And to all my Dec. chica's i'll see you soon!

These are so many freaking vitamins! As i get...

These are so many freaking vitamins! As i get closer i have more to take, UGHHH...I'm looking at the iron intake and i can't lie, i'm actually scared. That's a ton of iron to take, any of you post op ladies had any problems taking all of it?

Very sad.

Very sad.

Hello Ladies,

I've been MIA lately. I see alot of my girls have either left the board or are healing in peace.

Happy healings to those who have went and good luck to those who are going.


I had my date pushed back and i'm actually glad, it gave me time to shed a few pounds and get down to my ideal weight for this surgery. I've studied results and in my opinion the smaller the better. I still have enough fat for the round shape i want in the back but i lost enough so that my skin can bounce back after surgery.

I found some new garments i can share with you all. I'll find them and post them...Until then..

Happy Holidays ladies..

You ladies know any good hotels near Salama?

Nervous as hell..

Nervous as hell..

Everyday i come on here it's like Media Take Out,...

Everyday i come on here it's like Media Take Out, people trying to "AIR" other member's out and for what? Very juvenile if you ask me, i'm not here to argue with people or fight back and forth over stuff that doesn't even matter. The person in question isn't even on the board to defend herself.

People may consider other peoples actions are misleading or "lying" to the members of RS but in all honesty if a person makes a hasty decision to go with a surgeon just based on pictures from another patient then they should reconsider having surgery. This is not like picking a puppy or buying a new car, this is your body. Pictures alone should not be your deciding factor. We are all grown women and i hope we are able to make INFORMATIVE decsions on our own.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.....

Ladies, vet and newbies alike what are some of your hotel choices in florida? Everytime i find a place they either have bad reviews or cost like 400 a night.

I mentioned NO ONE personally so don't come with the jib jab and non sense.

So i'm down 10 pounds, wow. I hope i still have...

So i'm down 10 pounds, wow.

I hope i still have enough fat, i put more pre op shots up but really need opinions. Should i gain some back? Did i get too thin?
Funny because i wasn't even dieting just trying to eat right so my body is prepared for this surgery and the next thing i know BAM! Ten pounds lighter.

Opinions ladies?

I wanted to know how long it would be before my...

I wanted to know how long it would be before my stomach started to look presentable?

I ask before my surgery date is approximately 5 months before my Aruba vacation.

I wanted to know if I could safely wear a two piece without looking crazy.

Tax won't come back in enough time for me to go to...

Tax won't come back in enough time for me to go to Salama, i'm very hurt but i've come too far to just give up.

So i started researching Yily, but as many of you already know she doesn't answer right away. I'm very impatient, so i've sent her at least 4 emails and i've called a few times.

Today was the first day that i actually got through, i spoke to someone and they told me to send pictures to Cabral. I was on makemeheal before this and i will not get into the drama that happened with him, but i'll just say he is not the surgeon for me.

Why would they give me his email if i wanted Yily? confused.

I finally got my quote from Yily, i'm so excited...

I finally got my quote from Yily, i'm so excited.

Me and my mom are going to take a two week vacation in DR while we're there, her idea. Would love to soak up some sun rays while wearing that hot ass garment! *Sarcasm* But i'll do it for her, i've stressed her out with this surgery so....


I'm considering a Breast Lift, but i haven't really seen too many of Yily BL'S. Anyone know where i could see some pictures?

It doesn't matter where you go, surgery is surgery...

It doesn't matter where you go, surgery is surgery and is dangerous everywhere. Ladies i implore you to make sure you are in tip top health before even thinking about having surgery. A small waist and big butt doesn't even begin to compare to your life.

The young lady i mentioned in the title died here in NYC after having lipo, her surgeon performed the surgery KNOWING she had a history of heart disease and a heart transplant. He forged documents and told her she could have the surgery done. Two hours later she passed away. My heart goes out to her family, it is very sad.

This is the reason i'm posting this, even though i do not know any of you ladies personally i don't want anything to happen to anyone. PLEASE take care ladies, research and have your test done. Be open with your doctor and your surgeon and let them know if you have any issues.

No matter where you go, here or abroad you still have to do your part. Don't think just because your in the US surgery is safer.

Surgery is sugery.


Much love ladies.

Following my last post i've decided to make sure...

Following my last post i've decided to make sure i'm of sound mind and body before getting on that table.

Went to GNC today to get more vitamins and started chatting it up with the store clerk. I told him i was considering surgery (didn't go into details) but he starting telling me how his mom actually had surgery not too long ago.

Anyway he gave me this recipe for all green shakes and a list of vitamins plus the other vitamins i already was there to get. He told me that his mom was super healthy going into surgery and it helped ease and cut her recovery time.

He said she bounced back so quick from her surgery, so i've decided to try this thing out. I've already been on a diet to maintain my current weight, so now i'm just adding more vitamins and nuritents.

All i can say is this stuff taste like ass, OMG. I love veggies, but when you blend them together and add vitamins.........YUCK. I'm going to try some different combos maybe even add some dark chocolate to my next shake.


I'll add a shake recipe just incase any of you ladies want to try it out.

Green Shake

Spinach
Kale
Collard green
Broccoli

Add any fruit you like, plus ice.

You can also add milk or water.

I purchased some Chia seeds to throw in, they are VERY high in protein and Omega 3's.


GOOD LUCK LADIES!

Long Overdue: All of my girls have come and gone, except me. October 25th is my official date, question about recovery homes? Te

Hello ladies,

Anywho, I'm down to a healthy weight (I'll post pictures very soon) and I'm all green still. Body is beyond ready for this.

Happy healing chicas.
