3 Days Post Op - Salama

Because of financing I have to have my procedure done between 2/1 and 2/14/2013. I don't have a date at all but was told that they are scheduling for October. because of my financing, if I don't get it done within those dates I can't get it done. So if your date is somewhere around there and you need more time to get money together, or if you changed your mind and would like to recoup some of your deposit, or whatever let me know.

Okay so I've got my date, and paid my deposit. Now...

Flights booked. Condo booked. 12 days preop, very excited.

I spent the day shopping yesterday. Got all of my prescriptions for $25.00 at Walmart pharmacy (except Percocet, apparently it has to be filled in Florida) The price was over $100 because I don't have insurance, but I gave them my prescription discount card.

I was worried about finding maxi dresses in winter, but then I thought about Ross, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls that all sell cheap offseason clothes. I found three dresses, and some flip-flops. So I plan on wearing those along with a long skirt and a tank, and tights with a loose shirt. I think I should be able to rotate those the entire time I'm there, so I can pack light as far as clothing goes.

I also bought two 10 pack of chux pads, sterile gauze, bath wipes just in case I can't shower.

I will be getting gloves, and Hibiclens today, and that is all I will be taking, so I'll pack that up tonight.

When I arrive in Fort Lauderdale I plan on renting a car just for that day , to drive myself from the airport, to the pre-op appt, and to get my supplies for my stay to include:

Food (lean cuisines, sugar free fruit cups, soup, protein bars and shakes, water, Gatorade, Naked juice)
Paper towels
Toilet tissue
Plastic utensils
Body Wash
Tide Pods
A set of cheap sheets and pillowcases
A vinyl mattress cover
Bath mat

I'm still debating on posting my photos or not. Well I guess that's it for now.

Still debating about photos, although it seems like those are the only ones that get support; such as life.

Anyway, I am leaving in one day. I decided last minute to get new luggage, I didn't want to risk being told to check my bags.

I have all of the supplies that I need before I get there. After I land I will go to my preop, then go to walmart, and then check in at the condo.

I will be driving myself, the first day, because I don't want to have to wait on Larry, before I can start cleaning the condo and getting settled in.

I think that is it for know, the next time I do an update may be postop. EXCITED!

I'll keep this short. Dr and his team are very caring. Dr Salama is easy going but very matter of fact, which is helful esp for those who are shaped like an inverted triangle with a tight butt with wish pics of KimK or Yaris (it just wont happen).

As for cc's I got a lot , but the number doesn't matter bc I had a wide butt preop so it wouldnt be the same on someone more narrow.

Recovery is hard and I handle pain well. You really need someone for at least the first 24 hours.

I am putting up a before and after profile pics.I was fat going in to this and had way more fat than he could legally take out, this was discussed and agreed to by all. That said he did a good job from what I can see so far, annd I am swollen.

He did. Do you see my before? The after love handles are very swollen. I have no doubt that the will shrink even more.

Imma b detailed, I like how he rounded out your butt, and plumpness. also your stomach looks flatter than before. So imagine how much shrinkage you gonna get while wearing ur garment.

You said pain was hard. I take it that you will need the pain medicine

Honestly the percocet will only take a little of the edge off, and help you fall asleep. You'll still be in pain.

I think your results look great, honestly & I can't wait to see your body once the swelling goes down.

Thanks for the review! You look good. A lot of heavier/curvier African American ladies are not happy with their results which has led to some backlash on this site, so its good to see a positive result from someone black and not super skinny going in xxxxxxxxxxxxx
