Hey I would like to switch my date to sometime in February...I know it's only 1 month difference but February 2013 is when my spring break is (in Canada) and I really would like to do it around that time so I won't have to take as much time off school since i'm currently a student. Please help me if you can, I would appreciate all the help I can get in changing my date as it is very important to me...Thanks!

Hey I would like to switch my date to sometime in...
Hey...so i've been following the site for a while...
I still really need to change my date to Feb 2013 so if anyone is willing, the help would be appreciated.
Hey ladies, so i spoke to Cynthia last week and...
So, I was finally able to switch from march 7th to...
I am 5 ft 9 and currently 165lbs, on having my consultation, I was told by Dr Salama to gain 5-10lbs for the prcedure if I can and that I would be able to get about 1100cc's with that. I also inquired about the inner thigh lipo which is something I am considering including into the procedure. My current measurements are:
Bust - 40
Waist - 34.5
Hips - 44
Mind you, I use a 36D bra size and I have had a slightly bigger waist than the rest of my family and a little projection on my butt. I would like a lot more also with a very small waist. So that is very not unlike everyone else here. I appreciate all the support so far and I love how many people are here to tell their stories (calms my nerves). I am also slightly nervous because i've never really been under before so the whole process is pretty scary to me at this point. And it's sooo soon! omg lol. I am also very excited deep down too.
If there is anyone having a procedure the same day that I am please let me know, maybe we could meet up there!
Hello all, I haven't updated in so long because...
I haven't updated in so long because I told myself that in order to stop constantly thinking and dreaming about my SX, I should probably stay of this site until the day of my SX seeing as it is addictive, so that's what i've been trying to do. I currently have a dilemma though, I just found out I may not be able to make it on February 14th anymore, so I am urgently looking to switch with whoever is having their SX on Feb 15th or Feb 18th. or anytime during the week of the 18th. It is unfortunate that this has happened and that I won't be able to make the 14th, but I am sure some people may want to do their surgery on an earlier date and get it over with already! lol. Now since I live in Canada, it makes things a little bit more difficult for me especially with the booking of flights, hotel and everything so i have to be extra careful before booking so as to not lose any money. I would really appreciate anyone that can switch with me, that would ACTUALLY be the highlight of my week. Please help! Thank you so much !
THEY CAN'T FIND AN APRIL DATE AT THE OFFICE.....
So I am quite happy because I am slowly getting to...
But so far so good. I am still looking for that date between April 18-23 so if you have anything please let me know so we can switch!
Oh and btw I was 165lbs and Dr Salama asked me to gain 5-10lbs for the surgery. I am now 175lbs, which is what i used to be before losing 10lbs in the summer. My clothes are tighter and annoying, but I know it wont be long now. Also, when I was 165lbs I noticed my bra size was 36DD and not a D, I made a mistake earlier. I am still 5 ft 9 though so it's not like its much different. I just can't wait for all to be over. I am pretty good with pain but im not quite sure how this would be on my body so I am currently expecting the worst. I am glad I have friends and family that would be there to support me. Forever grateful :)
Since I heard working out beforehand is...
If you're getting the BBL with Dr Salama around...
It's so close...nervous but I try not to think too much about it, really dont want it to get to me.
Hey all im doing okay. Went in for my pre-op and...
Anyway I laid there...i felt kind of heavy like i was drunk or smtn and 10seconds later im out. I slept till abt 5.30pm ish and the nurse woke me up. I was cold and thirsty so i asked for water. She put me on a wheelchair and put a nice warm blanket over me. Then I asked for my sister and she came into the room. I was wheeled downstairs by the nurse while she walked by and was like dayuum your ass is huge lol. I felt achy and dizzy, with a bit of a pepperish feeling on my waist area. Obviously i was very lipo-ed coz i can feel it. It seems big atm but ive got boards in there so i can only imagine how small it is.
I was so hungry from not eating since morning so as soon as i got to my hotel (crowne plaza at hollywood beach) i immediately got some food warmed up. We bought a huge batched of packaged food and 4 big bottles of gatorade. I also got a nurse got the first day who is currenty with me and my sister. Shes from haiti and very sweet, her name is mariam. She was brought in here by nurse martine since she owns the agency and is working her own business. I say this is a pretty cool business to be involved in lol. So if you're looking for a nurse make sure to ask for nurse martine J miller from either cynthia or larry. Larry gave me a great recommendation for her also and i can experience it first hand. I feel safe lol.
I took my percosets and apart from that the pain is very bearable. Achy like youve just come back from the gym after working out for a mth straight but honestly, the first day feels pretty good. I had pasta, then noodles then chocolate chip cookies then a little bit of cheerios. I expected to feel nauseous and throw up all over the place but so far so good! Im happy :-)
Going to get my garment taken off today so pls wish me luck coz i heard it hurts. Especially since theres so much pressure on my ass it makes me feel like its gna explode so i rly cant deal with them touching it atm,God knows. But God's got me...im judt taking it one step at a time.
Ive also been sleeping sooo much i feel like falling asleep every hour n wake up like every two hrs. It really hasnt been bad. Like i just woke up and feel like sleeping again right now. I have one of those sipping bottles so whenever i wake up i sip lots of gatorade before heading back to bed so its been splendid so far. I walk arnd the room 4times every 2hours so im stiff but not too stiff.
I really expected this pain to be a whole lot worse. So expect the very worse and hope for the best. At the end of the day trust that God's got you always! :)
Doing ok so far

When I got back, it wasn't too hard to live my normal life. I bought a Yoga mat to drive around in my car with and I have my Boppoy pillow here with me. Not sitting is a pain in the ass though, it's really stressful. I have classes everyday and i have to sit on my rolled up yoga mat in class all the time. I made sure to let my prof know I had a surgery so I would get a little bit of a lee-way in class, which I did. He is very generous with timing and grades.
I try as much as I can to use my boards, but when i first came I didnt wear my garment and boards as often as I should. But now, i'm doing a lot better my tummy is much flatter and I go for my massages twice a week. I'm planning to have up to 11 massages, i've already had 6. So far it's going pretty great. I also had rashes under my breasts from the garment, which I have been using baby powder to dry up.
I recently ordered a small garment also since the large is getting lose. I first started with a 2XL then an XL, then a L (included with the price from Dr Salama's office). I ordered a Small Vedette 128 now, just so I wont have to keep buying smaller sizes and hopefully it works for me. I can't wait for my 6-week mark where I can sit. Omg did I mention it has been such a pain in the ass, literally? lol. Anyhoo...So far it has all been going pretty well, I have God to thank for it all. Pictures coming soon.
