Hi I am 26 with 2 children and want tohave this procedure because i cant stand my body now. I cant stand trying on clothes, shoping for undies, feel insecure, and never let my husband see me naked. I like to look good and feel sexy right now thats is not the case. My dream is to be able to wear what I want and feel confident about my body. And to actually enjoy going shooping for clothes I like and sexy undies(victorias secret lol). I will be traveling from Boston on June I am soo happy.

Each day I become more desperate and dont even know if I am going to be able to wait that long. My appoimment is going to be in the summer of next year and I am basically going to be on recovery for the whole summer ugh!!. I ve heard that Salama is having cancelations so I would like to go sooner next year, so I can spend the winter recovering and enjoy my summer. I see this more unrealistic with each day that goes by because the day is so far away from the present.

@1klimaxx Oh wow! so you are another one among others I know who are schedule for the same day, which worries me a little because he is doing too many girls in a day and each procedure takes about 5 hrs, thats not too professional I think. but on the other hand feel free to inbox me to keep in touch I am going to go with my mom and you?

Hi I just want to know why are soo many girls...

Hi I just want to know why are soo many girls going for a second round? I mean does the fat really stays permanent after a couple months or is all B.S, and it slowly goes away, cuz I really cant afford a second round, which also means a second airfare among other big expenses., I mean I am doing this to improve myself not to get riped off, also I was told by other pysicans that if the procedure was done correclty it shold be a one time procedure, so girls let me know what is going on here.

Ladies are getting a 2nd round because the booty isn't as big as they would like it or they want extra areas lipo'd so they figure to not let the fat go to waste- just reinject into booty.
  • Reply
Flatbooty-pretty much at two months is when the swelling and inflammation for the MOST part has completely subsided. At times there could still be. But yes by then any and all fat that would be reabsorbed would have happend. Yes the results are permanent but keep this in mind. Let's say usually your body weight is 120 lbs and you gain 20 lbs for the surgery so you're at 140. Then at say 3 months free surgery you see your butt and you like but want to lose some weight because you feel heavy. That weight needs to come from somewhere and that can result in you losing some volume in your butt. When you lose weight one cannot expect for the fat to disappear everywhere but the buttock area. And I've seen that happen all too often. Touch ups are on a case by case basis at the doctors discretion. Depending on what needs to be done it sets the pricing. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Ruben thank you for taking the time to clear up some of my concerns. Ok the first thing I want to say is that yes ive seen some ladies who are overweight and expect too much form the procedure, now on the other hand I 've seen others who are in an ideal weight and the results arent what they expected., also about fat reabsorption like I mentioned before I was told that after two months whatever is in stays in. based on what you"ve seen do results stay permanent after two months? is it possible for the body to continue fat reabsorption even after? because if that is the case then I need to be ready for the expectations., also if a touch up is needed is there any extra charge for it if yes how much? tanx.

Hi I"ve been addicted to this site for the past month, and I came across that Dr. Salama was one of the best for the procedure I am looking to get, so I booked with him,. but lately I've seen many girls here going for second round and others who arent pleased with their results for many different reasons, and this is getting scary, because I dont have the money and the time for a touch up or a secound round!!! I iam traveling so those are extra expenses right there!!. I am afraid that I made the wrong decision by booking with him. I am now considering Dr. Jimmerson even though hes more expensive Ill just have to save harder for him though but as long as is worth it then is ok with me, I just believe that if this is done properly there shouldnt be a secound round I dont wanna be crying later on. Please help me decide Jimmerson or Salama and why?

Wantabooty I agree with u girl.
  • Reply
Amen!
@flatbooty - the technique hasn't changed and the reason we ask patients to be 30 lbs above ideal weight is so that the fat is easily accessible rather than someone who is leaner makes it more difficult to access. Once the swelling and inflamation has subsided, we ask the patients to get back to their comfortable weight. Keep in mind that comfortable weight will be different since that fat is mostly in their buttock area. There may be residual fat in their bra line, but nothing that losing some weightloss won't take care of. I have personally seen many of the recent patients that have done surgery, and they have been very happy. Will you have 100% satisfaction? I know that's impossible, but we do our best to meet a patient's expectations. I hope this helps, and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Hi, I am still 8 moths away from my bbl but I am making plans because I dont know if my mother will be able to go with me and my hubby will be working so I need to have this cover in case she cant. Is it possible to do this by myself or do I absolutely need someone to be taking care of me? if so, how much does it cost to hire a nurse? if anyone else is going for sx around the same day let me know so we can share expenses as I am going to be traveling too as well. Thank you any advices are welcome.

Hi girls I just got a quote from Dr Campos in Tijuana pretty cheap and based on what he told me he injects the fat on the muscle to minimize the absorption I am very undecided because traveling out of the coutry specially to Mexico is kinda scary for me. I've seen some gils who went with him here but not enough and not too many updates either, but form others here i've heard hi is one of the best ones I just want to make sure, because I get undecided with Salama sometimes since round two, or touch ups are not options for me, I want this to be a one time only procedure though. Thank you girls.

Hello, all I can say is that Dr Campos is one of the BEST in the game. Plenty of girls on Realself and Makemeheal have gone to him and he not only gives the BEST butt and hips but he sculpts your body like an hour glass. Not taking ANYTHING away from Dr S but Campos is certainly the best but some people just dont want to travel to MX but I took my daughter for her birthday and christmas present and he did a phenomenal job and trust me MX is not bad at all, the medical facilities are the cleanest that I have ever seen and the recovery houses are some of the best, Club med is wonderful (although I had an altercation with one of the owners about money that I owed to one of the Dr's) they do provide great and personable service. Dr Campos is the bizness!!!!
  • Reply
yeah thats what I noticed too hour glass figure, but he didnt include the bra line on his estimate is that included on the price?
I will be traveling to Mexico in December going to Dr. Cardenas but depending on my results I may be going to Campos for Round 2 my main focus is my TT.

Hey chikas, I know I am still 7 months away but I just want to know when did you get the package with the instruction, because it should be couple monthst ahead of time so we can know what we need ahead of time! tanx ladies.

3 Comments

Your package probably won't arrive until around a month before for actually surgery date. There are really no instructions or things you have to do 2 or 3 months prior. It's really a little over a month before that you have to start your vitamins. The only thing your supposed to do is that far before surgery is cut out all drugs and or alcohol.

Check out this site www.lingerieoffprice.com fajas are around $30. This is what I've learned. You have your basic garments then you have the binders and waist cinchers. The waist cincher for example are the Fajas, Squeem, Ann Michelle garments. The help to try the waist and get it as flat and small as possibly. They are extremely tight and uncomfortable but they are best to be worn post surgery for best results. When it comes to sizes you n3ed to take measurements of your shape then order a cincher. Now my issue with that and the reason I didn't order online is because the size I am pre surgery will not be my post op size. So the only way to win I figure is to just by 2. A lot of faja places r non refundable because once its worn you can definitely tell.. hope this helps

Tanx girl btw, ur blog is the most informative of all and ur results one of the best ones too!
Your big day is getting closer and closer. Bigbootytinywaist has a very comprehensive list-you will find it very helpful-no doubt. I would suggest you use her list and ask her (she is very good at getting back to ladies on her blog) if there is anything on her list that turned out to not be needed at all to help you to nail things down. From my perspective (I'm at home recovering so very different from being away from home for several days). Arnica gel is VERY soothing to the lipo areas. I like having my comfy socks on so I bought some simple black summer sandals that I can slide my feet in with my socks on and go for my morning walk. I also purchased two black maxi dresses from Walmart that I adore!

3 days post op am so depressed right now all this for nothing

Hi bbl sistas, so today I am 3 days post op and I am not happy with my results, I made so many sacrifices, and put lots of money on the table in hope of having an improvement in my shape, but I got nothing on return, I told salama I wanted a nice slope upside down shape, with a nice waist line and archy lower back he said ut could be possible cuz I had some projection to begin with, and I was left with an ugly wide flat shelf. My tummy is all wrinkly and lumpy but I knew it could happen, now I dont know if I look better before or now, I just feel like he messed up on me he said he couldn't give enough projection on the bottle because he couldn't fit anymore fat?!!He putted 1300 ccs but I don't see any improvement :(

First of all I must say celia is amazing, she is very professional and very into her thing, massage wasn't painfull for me, im liking the new garment cuz of the compression but my crotch is burning it boders me down there but I can tolerate it. I got a massive headache after walking around the beach with my sister for like 40 mnts, I had enough water and gatorade, but once I got to room i laid on the bed to take a nap and my sister forgot to wake me up to give me the dose so I missed it for 3 hrs is that dangerous? Im so worried.

Line vaginal part with 2 pads it should the pressure off of the vajayjay. You need that compression so no atter how it hurts grin and bear it . Think about he end result. Its way too early to be second guessing what your body looks like. You will not even see the true you til about -6 months.are gonna drive yourself crazy. Everyones results are different, please have realistic expectataions. You made it through surgery which was the hard and dangerous part. Relax and let yourslef heal before you start secom guessing what is and is not. Concentarte om compression eating healthy and exercising when its time.

Its ok I understood everything, tanx for the motivation sista I appreciate it.

day 6 and results are still looking ugly from day 1.

I am so sad I feel robbed, I spent money, energy, left my husband and children for the first time in my life in order to have this surgery, from the beginning is been an emotional roller coaster, but now it's turning into deep depression. I can't stand looking at myself right now cuz the results now look wost than my body before, and everyone can see it. I spoke to Salama yesterday and he said if my lower back doesn't improve hewill do a revision, but what about my butt? my butt is the worst one I've seen here so far I had good expectations and now my butt looks deformed, I am going back to Boston on monday and my husband and family also had good expectations, they are going to be very disappointed as well I don't want them to see me, I wish I could go back to normal again. I regret making this decision.

I've been looking at some if his work because something today sparked a interstate in him for ne and if you put in salama bbl look at those ladies and I've come to the conclusion that it's his method of treatment that you won't see that blossoming booty for sometime like a few weeks. I also see those ladies did exercise and they are currently happy but their bootys were as you describe afterwards but let me say this, you are in a emotional mind frame, DO EVERYTHING YOUR INSTRUCED AND SUGGESTED TO DO or you won't see results if you hold yourself down. I suggest doing that search I did, it may put you at a lot of ease

As far as my recovery I'm doing good, thinking about my children make me continue through this nightmare of my surgery, I am still thinking maybe I would've come out with better results if I was 200lbs I lost weight to have better results and ended up with a small butt.

I am starting to itch, im using arnica gel and benadryl but isn't helping much, this is getting in my nerves help.

Go buy goldbond lotion in the green bottle. Slather it on from top to bottom. Its going to stop it. You may want to also after slathering gently use your nails to rake over your skin or use a comb. GIRL that will make u feel so good. Then put the garment on. It works like a charm.

I know I said I wasn't coming back til results were final but I must say that changing is happening, and though im not completely satisfied yet, I can see a positive difference with my body compare to the fist week, tanx for your support sistas, I have to say that im playing a big role in making my body change, I've been wearing the triangle foam right above my butt right where the fat was left behind 27/7, foam on my upper back, and stomach, I must say the foam really works wonders. On day 14 I started wearing my faja with the board, foam and medium squeem, I will keep posting pics of my progress.

18 days post op update.

Some pics of the change, this sx isn't joke and is not about the pain for the first 2 days, tank Gid I mannaged to handle that pretty good I was eating waking and drinking good the 1st day, I was weak but not in crazy pain, I was pushing myself into recovery and by the 2nd day I was better 3rd day I went to the stores after my post op app. The hard part of this procedure is the reality that comes after, garment, foam, squeem and ab board, not being able to wear what I want except from dresses tshirts and yogas to cover all these layers of compression, not being able to get a pedi or go to the salon, not being able to sleep comfortable, not being able to sit for 6 weeks, all of this is physically draining I just can't wait to be back to normal, I know is gonna be worth it at the end but emotionally is getting to me I feel so lonely my husband is being a little distant because I don't wanna have sex yet, til im able to sit, and I feel sad sometimes but unfortunately no one understands why, would I do this again, don't know about that booty greed can be strong sometimes so can't say no lol, but ladies be ready for a life style change uf you really want good results after sx, is tough but I am pushing myself to protect my investment.

anything better than yoga mat for driving?

So today was my first day driving because I had to they needed me at work, I put a yoga mat, it was the thicker one I found at Walmart, the mat went a little flat and I was having a hard time to keep my butt off the back of the seat, tank God is only 7 minutes away, grr I feel so bad I have to do this 3 times a week and I need something more solid than a yoga mat any recommendations?

Hi hun ur booty looks great im glad u put up pucs so others can c...i love ur results my sx is 9/16 mite i ask wher did u stay?
  • Reply
I have my sx in December with salama but I've already bought n damn near tryed it all already. Best thing I found for driving was a half yoga roll and then use one for your back or lumbar pillow. I found them cheap on amazon and posted pics in my review. And a pic of me trying with a whole roll. Plenty of room but whole roll was too much. And it felt like it wanted to "roll". Last thing we need is an accident trying to protect our booties!!! You look wonderful!! Happy healing!!!
  • Reply
Yes that's what I was thinking too, this mat was so uncomfortable that I nearly felt that I was driving almost standing to protect my investment, and though about getting in to a car accident for it would b stupid from me, so will try the half roll instead, so mamy sacrifices we have to make for this sx is no joke, if I was born with a good rear, all these would've been avoid lol.

one check bigger than the other

So here I am inspecting my body for changes or irregularities and noticed that one cheek is bigger than the other and I think the difference is big, there's no way imgonna stay with this assimetry Iis this normal or is a sign to consider revision?

2 things hun, you should NOT have tight jeans on at 3 weeks AT ALL you could be doing more damage! SECONDLY YOUR BODY IS HEALING so swelling and fluffing can be uneven till its final you have to follow the regimen and rules to the t for best results that way if there is an issue you can prove it is surgeon error and not poor affercare

best way to make waist super tiny

I am obsess with my waist right now cuz I feel like it doesn't look as small as b4, In fact gained an inch im still using baggy ass xl CG with with board and foam and medium squeem on top 23/7 but I guess I gotta do something stronger what else aids in slimming down the waist line, ladies.

5 weeks post op and planing a round 2, where did everything go again?

I know I said. No for round 2 due to all the emotional rollecoaster issues, but im considering it this booty obsession is getting serious and I can't stop being so obsessed untill I get the projection I want!! But im just considering it for now, This is the same projection I had pre pregnancies and I want a drastic change, not what I had before, an "average" booty nahhh that aint doing it 4 me, this time imma gonna ask for a donk, or a stripper butt so he can deliver the results I want. Not satasfy with my results so far, I've been eating healthy, moving around, wearing super tight compression, and everything is changing for the worst, the other thing I need is def a tummy tuck but it aint happening yet cuz I want 1 more child.

I am 11 weeks post op and can't stand this garment any longer...

I have 2 garments the the vedette 136 and the stage 2 I got in the office, well the vedette 136, I dont like because it chocks my crotch even when I wear an underwear on the neith, and makes my thingie look like is divided :0,,, and the one Im currently wearing is the stage 2 from the office booty in but its getting on my nerves already, I want another one, but im just afraid to get the wrong one and throw more $$ out, I am looking for extra torso compression, and somethong that doesn't choke my vajinie lol, advises and links welcome.

Tanx, good luck to u girl.

it seems like Dr Salama don't wanna give me a revision....

I have rolls on my back, tummy isn't flat anymore, and my butt is lumpy, with a hard mass on left cheek, I contacted Ruben by email because he is the only one who responds to them and, he said that revision will only happen if the doctor is at fault, and a second surgery might be require to achieved optimal results,, Wtf!! Im not as wealthy enough to throw $$ like that, I emailed salama and got no response, so then again I emailed ruben about hard spot and lumps and he said it might b fat necrosis to give it time, I didn't expected this, so now if the problem doesn't resolve overtime im left in the dark with no hope just like another number. I was considering a second round but now I wanna go with Duran if things don't improve, or salama won't do a revision on me.

hey sweetie. what is your waist size and what is your hips? I didn't get a small waist or the projection that I wanted either.
  • Reply
My waist was 27 at the beginnin and now im up to 32? My booty is a 43, same as pre sx I hate my results!!!!
I think you look great, give it time and don't be so hard on yourself. I do believe that if you do have a hard mass on your cheek, Dr Salama should do a revision. Its the right thing to do, keep your customers happy.

revision app but thinking about 2nd round, with Duran.

Hey ladies I've been away for some time already, trying bot to focus on my body, but it's impossible, i am not satisfy, my ass has flat spots all over, my belly and back are fat!!! And I know that a revision wont get rid of all the fat i was left with. My butt is too small for my frame I want more side projection!! My revision app us for November, however I want a vixen body, and considering Dra Duran for my second round, I had sent her my pics 2 days ago to get a quote, so at this point im just waiting, im a little afraid of going out of the country for this procedure, but I know that in order to get what I want I will have to travel outside, because im not convinced with the results of drs here, I need to die for curves and a full booty!!!

Your the second lady that has said Dr Salama doesn't do/wont do revisions! Well it actually seems he picks & chooses who he doe revise! That's sad! Good luck to you! Keep us posted please!
  • Reply
Yes, he finally agreed when I became obsess and write him everyday about my unsatisfactory results.
Good for you! DR should be held accountable & be happy to fix us!

DOES ANYONE KNOWS DURAN'S #?

I am still waiting on a quote, from 4 days already I'm becoming a little inpatient, I emailed her yesterday but no answer back! :(

revision with salama on November 2014 anyone else going around that date?

So I'm over a year post op and will get a revision done on November 18, wanted to know if anyone else is going around that date, so we can share expenses.

Hey sweetie, how much did you pay for the revision?
  • Reply
I had the exact same problem, one more inch of difference but it will accommodate a little though and trust me it may not get better in a year, I have to go for a revision due to flatness and dents.
Miami Plastic Surgeon

Salama took his time answering my questions and listening to my concerns, he is very professional and agreed to do a revision on me after me being on top of him, lol. I felt he didn't take his time operating me, my sx took less than 3 hours and I'm not happy with the outcome.
