Hey ladies! Has anyone's doctor say they have to wear their garment for 5 months : 0

So I've had a man like figure for as far as I can...

So I've had a man like figure for as far as I can remember. I will be turning 25 in Nov, and it's time for a change, the price is what honestly scares me the most, I have a problem with saving money but this is not just something that will physically and mentally build up my self-esteem, but it'll also show me how to be more of an adult financially. My date will be in March, so thats enough time to save up each month, the only problem is my bf is saying I shouldn't send my money to Elite each month but instead to save up each month in a savings account, which do you think would be better? My next problem is the wait, this is going to kill me, all I think about all day is this surgery lol, hopefully once I start school it'll be on my mind less.....so thats it for now I'm sure I will become addicted to this site....Goodluck to all the ladies on her, with whatever surgery their hearts desire!


Hey B.cooper ! Welcome to Realself :) im also very bad at saving but if you really want something, sacrifices must be made ! I suggest sending in money because that way, you cant spend that money. If you put it into a savings account, you might find yourself edging your way into the account. Keep us updated ! :)

I am going to save up in my account. My surgery is in December, so I should be able to save up like, 70% of my bill. Then I am going to finance the entire thing, and pay it off with in the 0% interest promotion period. That way, I won't ever not have money in my account (that really bothers me), I will be able to pay for clothes, misc. expenses after surgery, and I will be improving my credit score all at the same time. But if you really do have a problem with dipping into your savings account, then you probably should go ahead and send payments to elite, and not give yourself the opportunity to spend it elsewhere :-)

I do like Perry shapes but I want a big butt and all the pics I've seen I personally do not see a difference in the size of the girls butts, now I'm think about Dr. Campos or Cardenas but a few girls are staring there have been a few problems in Mexico and as much as I want a butt dying is not an option, can someone please give me their opinions of these 2 doctors or explain to me the problems that are happening down there, I'd appreciate it much, thanks!


I can tell you this I fell the sameway I can say that there are three Dr. thant I have looked at Dr. Salama is a hip and butt Dr. that good for girl with no hips and but and Dr.Jimmerson is a projection doctor that good for girls with littl or a lot of hips that good if you wont more projection and that what im looking for and Dr. Sacghor sorry i mis spelled his man but he is in bweteen i would say go to all of there personal web page and see who give the result that you are looking for

So after looking at literally over 30 plastic...

So after looking at literally over 30 plastic surgeons world wide, I'm going with Cardeans, I first like most people I was terrified of traveling outside the country but I honestly trust her and she seems very caring and I did very very strong research on her. This surgery is really going to make me happy, I recently had my son 7 months ago and I love him dearly but it's been a rough 7 months, in Dec he will turn one and as a pick me up p gettin through his first year I'm getting my sugery, I won't lie and say my child ruined my body because it was never that good to begin with lol, I even got depressed my last semester of college because my roomie who I had to see every damn day had a rockin bod wih a fat butt, and would tease me about it, cruel right? Well once I get this surgery and heal my first pic is going to that slut lol....a little bit about my stats I am 24 will be 25 by the time I have my surgery, I'm about 175 and 5'5...don't know my measurements but will find out...
As I research all of you I see the different things we need for the surgery : 0 which is a nice lengthy list, I am confused on a funnel, would it e connected to us, to pee in, where would I pick that up from, and also I would only be staying in Mexico for 8 days but only the first 3 will be spent there, the rest San Diego, so does anyone know any massage therapist there? Until next time ladies take care and get ready for ur bods!


Hi Hun! I will be a Cardenas girl this October! I just started my real self journey and will be sure to update. Don't be scared about MX, from ladies that have been have said it's not scary at all. I hear you on the saving..I am a designer handbag junkie and had to out myself on a ban to save. I figure confidence will last forever. Good luck and keep us posted. So excited for you my fellow bbl sister!!

Yay!!!! I'm excited for u as well, I'm do glad they have this website, real self is brilliant!
Does Cardenas off financing?

Ok so after a couple of months from just knowing I'm going with one doctor and switching to the next and getting on my family nerves, I finally found the doctor I want, I love his work, his price, and that he add fat to both the booty and hips and most importantly he has my date...which is December 14th now it's just time to save and in a couple months book my hotel and massages, I'm so ready for this I can't wait! I do have a question tho, how long should you wait until you get your first massage after the procedure and how do I get the right garment for me?


hey girlie! im planning on getting my first massage 2 days after sx. maybe sooner if im not hurting too bad. i want to do at least 5-8 before i leave. im in the process of finding a place where i can get some here too. im so lost of the garment thing!! im just gonna wait to see what the dr says. im not trying to mess nothing up with the wrong garment
  • Reply
yeah i agree with u about messing up the garment, Im going to buy my own, and if the one the doctor gives me seems like its pressing in my butt or messing it up somehow ill just switch to the one i have...
I just found out about Dr Velilla a week ago. Yamilet is sooo nice and helpful, and if you reserve your date in August its 50% off what they charge for the slimlipo! I'm ghetto tho....still trying to see if I can talk him down more. But, yes he has done some banging bodies!!!!!!

Ok so I was so worried about actually being able to pay off my total by the end of Nov. but my bf knows how important this is to me and how happy itll make me that he decided to pay for my whole surgery and hold off on the things he wants : ) its finally ocming to reality for me ladies, and I am so happy and blessed. A woman determined will get what she wants, no matter what the odds!!! Still going with Velilla....DEC 17TH : )

So I've gotten the most important part over and that's picking a doctor that I am comfortable with and meet all my needs. I am going with Cesar Velilla and I trust that he will give me if not exactly what I want, close to it.....the deposit has been made, date set, and now it's the buying stuff here and there, and just keeping up on deposits.....


I'm scheduled for the 15th.

My time is winding down as well i'm Schedule with Velilla in December and can't wait based on the results I've seen from my best friend " she looks amazing".

This experience is truly a up and down stressful, exciting, looking forward to, hoping I can afford, but im determined so I'll get it (take a breath,lol) roller coaster, but for this booty I would ride again.....All i think about is how life is going to change and how I feel finally feel all the way comfortable with my body. At first I was like oh no what will my fam, friends, etc think of me, but now Im like only I can live my life and make me happy, so Im proud to get my BBl and for those that dont understand, as far as Im concerned you dont have to, it would be my honor if you stay confused hehe, and to my real friend/ fam/and BBL SISTERS, that actually support you and make this journey less stressful and more of a road you would travel again, I thank you, SPECIAL SHOUT OUT TO REDBONZ, you have helped me with this more than you know, freaking love you : ) TO my BBL SISTERS get excited, it's our time to continue to enjoy our lives but an extra reason to smile (muah)

I am so anxious, that's my biggest problem, I'm just to eager to wear clothes I couldn't before, to get the attention I've never had before, to just be happy and comfortable being me.....it's confusing this process because so many doctors do the same surgery so many different ways....example some say massages are a must, some say wait, and some say you don't have to get it at all....I guess the smartest thing to do is to go with your doctor procedures....but being that my doctor massages are a bit pricey I won't be get if as many and I'm ok with that knowing others aren't mandatory with their massages....the days seem like they are moving at molasses speed, but I'm thankful and hoping everything goes well....until next time my bbl beauties get ready for ur bods!


Hey girlie! It's almost here!!! Email me if you need anything. Can't wait to see the new you. About massages, I got 4 while in mx and planned to get more at home but got lazy. I'm healing just fine. I will get deeper massages or something to break up scar tissue soon now that I'm going on 7 wks po. I wouldnt stress over massages.

I can't believe how quick my time has got here, I remember about 4 months ago and starting from day one, I am still very excited and startin to get a little nervous, sure it will build as time moves forward...decided to start packing today, bein that I am on a budget I didn't purchase any maxi dresses instead I will be packing a few of my bf pajama pants and oversized tshirts, I have arnica and Bromelain, I also will not be getting a boppy pillow until a week after my surgery, I don't plan on sitting much unless I'm using the bathroom and my bf is drivin me there and back...my job is a teacher so I am thankful to have the option to stand if I want....I know it's like around the corner but I won't be happy until its the 17th....well ladies if you have any advice at all feel free to tell me everything....


It's amazing how fast that time flies by, huh?! At first it seems like it will never come, and then bam!

Official 10 Days Countdown.... I am super excited,...

Official 10 Days Countdown.... I am super excited, a tad bit nervous, but most of all in shock, I have to give myself a pat on the back because I never thought I would ever have a nice big ok round booty, but because of this beautiful life we live in, it can happen...I am so thankful of first and foremost God and also Surgeons, I am very thankful for my surgeon and his team, they somewhat feel like long distance cousins, they really care and I'm just overwhelmed with joy. This surgery has been a lot, good, bad, and meeting great people like all of you....there has been so many things that are trying I stop me from this urgent but I won't let it, at first I had no way to pay for this surgery but I hoped that obstacle because my balance is paid off, I had a pregnancy scare but it was just a few days late, really didn't have the extra money for the hotel and it just so happens my bf ex coworker moved to Florida, 20 mins away from Dr. Velilla, and even now we have the issue of money for gas, but I always believe in if there's a will there's definitely a way, with all his said ladies if this is what u really want and what will make u happy, don't let nothin or no one stop u from getting it, u deserve to be happy, good luck to all future bbl patients and to all a happy healing!!! : )


Hope you're feeling better.. praying for a speedy recovery ;-) drink lots of fluids and stay away from salt/sodium.

5 days post op and I am finally feeling better, no longer so sore, still sore, just not as much....i think i will be happy with my results in a month, being that my body will go through so many changes...however i do notice a huge dif from my old body to my new one, i got my drain taken out on the 5th day and my massages didnt hurt, i was able to poop w/o a stool softener and i actually poop now more than before the surgery lol sorry that maybe too much info but hey just being real.....i will continue to do as my doctor has told me and continue to hope for the best

Ok so some girls that are interested in Cesar Velilla main question is did I feel any pain during surgery? The best way I can explain it is I didn't feel pain but I did feel him inside of me.....it was more so awkward than anything else, for the most part u are sleep and if u do wake up like I did, the doctor asks if u want more anesthesia because the anesthesiologist is not allowed to leave the surgery room until you are completely finished, he also gives u a pill that sedates you right before surgery, so the first 3 hours I was knocked out when asked the last hour if I wanted more I said no because I didn't care for anymore drugs and I wasn't in pain it was just something your not use too


First let me apologize for not being the first to post after your sx:-( you look great! I'm jealous of your tummy..it's so flat and smooth. How are you feeling?? I'm loving your results!!! It's so round and you have projection!!

Lol girl we are two bad ones......and thanks so much and girl no need to apologize, all I ask is the next time u party, celebrate for me by shaking that ass lol.....and it's day 6 so I'm starting to feel normal by next week I should be good....how have u been?
To be honest, I was super afraid of going under general anesthesia so I wanted to find a doctor with local anesthesia. Though I  finally opted for a doctor that only uses general, I'm still kinda frightened LOL. But I'm glad you're sharing your views on local. It's not something that is very common in the US, but I know its used by PSs in Mexico and the DR. Your doctor did I great job! Congrats and happy healing!!

Hey ladies, I'm almost 3 weeks post op and only...

Hey ladies, I'm almost 3 weeks post op and only the sides of my butt have soften some, the rest of my butt is still quite hard, does anyone know around a general time frame it goes back to normal or at least close to? And when is the earliest you can sit down, because I know I can't last a whole month, I've been sitting here and there mostly on the boppy pillow, but I'm even getting tired of that, I will make myself go to the 3rd week w/o sitting, but a month seems unrealistic, I guess my main question is when do u start feeling normal again, no soreness, no pain here and there, no funny feelings, just normal? And also I smoke, when can I start smoking again, and I'm not talking about cigarettes lmao shhhh lets keep that between us ladies, lol, hope to hear from some Vets soon


I had my liposuction with CESAR VELILLA. Unfortunately, I can not call him a doctor because he does not deserve the name. I had it about two years ago and I'm still regretting my bad decision . Not only I continue receiving different types of treatments for my uneven, bumpy, spasmodic and irregular abdomen but with two gaps on each side of my belly button which are not even same size or same length. And, also uncompassionate human being and I mean every word. This happen on my second surgery to repair the disastrous work he made on Vanidades. When I went looking for him, the manager of Vanidades told he that he left without any notice to management as well patients. When I was ready to enter in the surgery room. VELILLA asked for additional money to my surprise since we had an agreement of $1200 before. When in surgery, I woke up and said that I was on awful pain and requested more anesthesia but he continue listening his cumbia music and even his staff asked him "WHAT WE DO DOCTOR" but he didn't reply. I had not been sent from the competition as he said. I wish I could write good things about him but it happened and have the obligation to revealed and avoid somebody else a nightmare experience.

Dr Velilla

I found out about Dr. C. Velilla through a lot of research and I'm so glad I just didn't give in to a doctor that I really didn't want, his staff is sweet and very informative and definitely works with you, as far as the actual doctor I will speak with him next week but I have no doubt in my mind that he don't give me what i want, until next time sis, may all ur booty dreams come true! *muah* happy with my results but he's so busy that he didn't give me enough time in my opinion
