Hello, all u beautiful ladies..so glad to have bumped into this fabulous site, where one can pretty much live through others vicariously! I've read just about everyone's journey and let me tell you... you all are some incredible women!

I to want this surgery so bad because all my life I've been the "oh you have such a beautiful face":/ lol..I'm sure some of you are on the same page... anyways,I would like to ask some of the women who have had the bbl done if there was any type of anxiety or depression after the procedure? Because I'm kind of a worry wart that thinks I'll have some type of issue with that once I go through with it. Don't get me wrong, I'm so excited to know that I to can have the nice figure I've always wanted... so someone let me know something... lol give me some info pleeezze o_O

By the way I will be posting pics soon..not to sure how I'm kinda new with this iPad!


@beyamuher - how are you? this is Ruben I work, with Dr. Salama. Just wanted to say hello and welcome you to the BBL sisterhood. Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you and I'll be glad to answer any questions. My email is rubensalama@epsmiami.com if you need anything. Best wishes, Ruben

Hi Ruben, I'm good just a bit impatient lol thanks for asking. I'm still hoping and praying to get my bbl done sooner than Aug. 12. I've already met Nancy over the phone and I must say she's a beautiful person. Im assuming your the same since you took the time to welcome me here. Thanx again and hope to see you soon,take care Ruben :-)
Hi,yassie im also looking for an earlier date. Something like in march or april!! Are you also going with Dr.Salama??

Hi girlies, I'm still looking for an earlier date....

Hi girlies, I'm still looking for an earlier date..Feb,March or April :'/


my date is set with Dr. Salama. He is my first choice. I have a consult set up with Dr. Jimmerson, will see how that goes, if he can get me in sooner and things work out I may switch. I really love the staff and Dr. Salama's work but honestly Aug is so far away. After the year I have had I am ready for a serious change now.
@yassie - how are you? This is Ruben. I wouldn't give up hope. Patients reschedule and although very infrequent patients cancel. Let Nancy know that you want to be on wait list. I think a spot opened up today for November 16 this year. If you'd like or anyone wants that spot, just call her tomorrow. Best of luck. Ruben
I am August 16 and I'm really hoping for a way earlier date I wanted my new body for summer :(

Very happy today..I managed to get an earlier date...

Very happy today..I managed to get an earlier date since I have switched from Dr.S to Dr.R. I continue reading everyone's journeys and thanx to all of you, I learn something new everyday:) I'll be trying to post some pics today, sorry but I've been hesitating because uggghhhh..they are not the best. Anywho GL to all the newbies as well as all recovering bbl ladies..


Wishing u the very best!!:)) xoxo

Hello ladies, its been awhile since ive posted anything but I wanted to wait until many date got closer. I have been reading up on pretty much everyone on RS..looking at newbies and of course vets. Anyway im sitting here thinking about my sx and beginning to feel nervous and anxious! I got cleared today all except for a urine infection that will be taken care of with some antibiotics Dr.Ghurani prescribed me. So nice of nomi to have taken the time to call in my prescription to my local walgreens since my printer at home seems to be constipated. .lol I don't know I think there's some paper stuck in it!! Anyway...20 MORE DAYS TILL SX!! By the way a big thanx to bigbutiez for answering all my questions, you look great girl..B-)

As you all know...MY TIME IS HERE! Yes my dears, I...

As you all know...MY TIME IS HERE! Yes my dears, I met with Dr.Rami Ghurani and he is absolutely positively the doc for me:)) So I'm gonna make a long story short, here goes.....
got to my pre op at 3:00
Signed a bunch of paperwork and was called to the back by none other then Dr.Rami.
Then I met the beautiful Nancy. WAIT!! Did I say beautiful? I mean gorgeous! And The fabulous Nomie and Laila. Let me tell you once you conversate with these women they feel more like sisters than anything. Anyway my husband accompanied me to the back and Dr. Rami asked us to take a seat and began asking me health questions. After. Few min we got into what he calls the 'good stuff'! So he says ' tell me...what exactly are you looking for? And right before I could answer... he answered for me. Right there and then I knew he was aware of my defects. I smiled..lol cheezy huh?! So he checked out my body and boy oh boy WAS I EMBARRASED! I was standing in the middle of my husband, Dr.Rami and Nancy. He's was holding and feeling and squishing all my fat..hahaha it was hilarious we all busted out laughing at silly things I kept saying due to my nerves.
So after talking to Dr. Rami for about 1/12 we said adios until tomorrow. I went in nancys office received my boppy pillow and my bromelin pills, joked around with the girls in the office for a bit and headed back to my hotel room. All in all my first experience they get 10 out of 10. Tomorrow is my big day I'm due first thing in the morning at 8:30am and I really just wanna get this over with. I'm gonna try my best to keep you all informed hope to get some love from all my girls here on RS!! Pray for me ladies Im gonna need it!!!M:))


Good luck :) god is with you ;) everything will be fine .

Hi ladies, I made it through my check up today it...

hi ladies, I made it through my check up today it was tough. The percs made me extremely dizzy so I discontinued them. I'm taking advil as well as extra strenghth Tylenol and I feel much better. I have been eating and drinking ok and taking meds just fine. I have my foams on and cami but I can't seem to get comfy ughh my back is killing me. Anyway my first massage is Tuesday and I'm already scared because when I feel my tummy IT HURTS!!! I also want to include that Dr.Rami is an incredible person he has been so nice and caring. Nancy and Cynthia are the best they made me feel so comfortable and safe these women are amazing. Overall the teamwork between all of them make the place grade A! And I mus'nt forget the gorgeous anesthesiologist ..lol..so ladies thank you once again for being one of my biggest support system I truly do appreciate every single one of you:)


Congrats looks like he did his thing on you get good rest and lots of fluids happy healing

Hello beautiful chicks! Just here with a quick...

Hello beautiful chicks! Just here with a quick update..I'm feeling much better today. The extensive pressure I had on my butt has gone down dramatically I feel like they are not so tight anymore. I had my first bm yesterday without a problem and no it was not messy at all! Funny thing though, my husband helped me go pee the first couple days with a funnel I bought at my local ace store. So he stands behind me while turn towards the back of the toilet and guess what??? Haha I peed all over his hand the first few times! I wanted to bust out laughing so bad but then the pain of my lipo wouldn't let me:) well here I am laying on my tummy typing and bored out of my mind. I continue to have the stiffness on my back but I found a great way to sleep without a lot of pain on my back. I pile up 4 pillows like how dominoes look when they fall and bam! that does the trick. I'm taking all my meds except for the percs, those pills made me feel worse than I was:( they gave me headaches, nausea and I was lightheaded the first couple of days after sx. So Dr.Rami told me to get off em and start my advil and xtr strenghth Tylenol and waalla I feel great now. Now about my first Shower where should I begin?! Hmmm, well it was tough! I almost passed out I had to smell some alcohol and hold on to my hubby while it subsided then I washed brushed my teeth changed and felt great. So I'm happy thus far that even through the pain and uncomfort I would still do it again!! Yes the day after my sx I asked myself why? Why did I do this? But you know I started thinking about how bad I felt with that busted booty..lol crap I want to laugh bad with that one but I can't yet.. So if

you're scared or nervous it's all normal baby dolls everything in life is a risk and a process if one lady can get a bbl, we all can get a bbl!! Thanks to all the lovely ladies who hit me up here or in private your words are a big uplift:))))))


do u have ur before and after measurements

Any sista out there that can found original Chinese pills "Pien Tze haung"
  • Reply
Hey nurseonduty, I wasn't really looking into anything like that cause Dr.Rami told me NOT to take herbals because most of them have blood thinning properties. So be careful what you take please make sure it will be something beneficial and not dangerous:)

So I had my first massage and I'm not saying it...

So I had my first massage and I'm not saying it was a cake walk but it was pretty easy for me! I did take 2 advils 30 min before and that was good enough;-) I had tons of liquid like literally I drenched the pad as well as my boppy..yea gross! But I felt like a million bucks afterwards. Next massage on thurs and I'm looking so forward to it thanks to my girl celia! You know this sx is so bittersweet because you go through a difficult recovery and through the midts you meet beautiful people inside and out that once its time to go back home it feels kinda sad:( but I will def give Dr.Rami and the girls a shout every now and then. Ttyl fabulous ladies?????


Hi luv

Ok so I just wrote a long ass review only for it not to post..ugghh ok so im going to narrow it down my ladies..ive been feeling good I haven't been taking pain meds in 2 days. I continue to wake up stiff and uncomfortable. I am def shrinking:) back drain was removed yesterday and no more compression stockings. On my way for my second massage and hopefully front drain removed. Im am stoked to be going home today. Im definately gonna miss ?Dr.Rami?and his lovely staff but will keep them updated with my continuing results..so check out my pic with the man himself;))

Thanks joselyn, soon you'll be doing the same;)

Hello girls, well I decided to do a quick update....

Hello girls, well I decided to do a quick update. My healing is coming along i would say ok... my tummy is hard and lumpy so is my back. My butt cheeks have a prickly feeling inside. I continue to feel uncomfortable sleeping and I still feel the stiffness. These are all effects I knew I would have to deal with ahead of time, so no big deal! Anyway aside from that, im excited due to the drastic downsize of my garment. I was an XL at 10 days and felt it getting really loose so I went to get another one. And I was so surprised to come out tge store wearing a med! YESSSSSSSS:-)) so i tried the med garment and closed it on the second row:O I was like whaaaaaat! So I realized I was gonna need a small garment fairly quick. So I bought both! Anywho, I will be posting new pics and I just wanna say my body may not have perfect results in someone elses eyes, but to me it is! Oh by the way I haven't experienced any itching whatsoever! Ttyl girlies:-)))


Hey Ms. Boootyliciousssss!!!!!!!!!!. Can we get some more pics LOL!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey girl! Do you work? Just wondering how much time you felt you needed before you returned. When did u feel well enough to get up and walk around without looking like a penguin? Lol
  • Reply
Yea Hun I work..I took 2wks off but I felt like I needed more time off. The swelling on my legs and feet became very uncomfortable. But between wk3 n wk4 I was able to get around way better without waddling..lol

Hey ladies, so I'm a few days shy of 7wks and...

Hey ladies, so I'm a few days shy of 7wks and loving myself more and more each day! I know Its been a while since my update but once your this far out of sx you just focus on healing and getting over new hurdles that come at you through the process. I guess the only new things are easing yourself back into your normal activities like sitting and driving. Theres been no complications none of the famous itching and no more swelling of legs or ankles. I continue to wear my CG in a small as well as my board n foam. I personally feel like I my garment is shaping me and shrinking my waist nicely without a waist cincher So I don't think I'll be buying one anytime soon. Anyway funny thing, I went out with some friends this weekend and DAMN all eyes on me!! I mean I wasn't turning heads, I was breaking necks! Lol..I had males and females hitting on me..! Some chik even grabbed my booty and I gave her the UGLY EYE!!! Yes I did.
So ladies get ready for it, get ready for all the negative and positives that come with the booty cause there's plenty:) so I will be posting pics randomly if you have any questions or comments feel free to inbox me. Oh by the way good luck to all my girlies that are on there way to a better booty..I will be keeping up with ur sx's luv ya'll;-)))


I LOVE LOVE LOVE your results! You look like you were born that way. Looks perfect on you!!! I am trying to figure out a Dr for the BBL...Ive been to Jimerson for a consult and whooaaa, he is high! youve got me interested in Ghurani now! Thank you so much for sharing your story and your photos with us!

I am scheduled for Dr Ghurani next month on the 16 is there and pointers that you can give me... like how do I ride to the appointments.... am I to lay on back seat. How do I sit on toilet.... Am I going to feel well enough to go out at all....

I wear my cg on & off (especially to sleep) because it seem that I still get a bit swollen without it:-(...there's nomore stiffness but I am still numb in some areas. I have started sitting on my booty 3wks now and its still aaallllll theeeeeeere..lol my booty is now nice an soft and it feels funny ( in a good way!) When I walk..:-D I totally luv, luv, luv shopping for clothes but I do have a hard time due to my disproportions.. hahaha! But dont get me wrong, I am so greatfull for awwwll disss..lol anyway my luv's, this whole process of sx and recovery has been a great experience beginning with Dr.Rami and all the fabulous women on RS that came before me and after!

Hello ladies, just wanna say thank you to all of you who took the time to congratulate me on my results and have been so patient for me to update:-) I do apologize if I don't answer every question inbox or outbox because I have so many!! Anyways since my sx( about 9 months now) everything's gone fairly well. I thank god there were no complications whatsoever..I did wear my cg for as long as I could and even way longer than I was suppose to. So far I am still very happy with my results and continue to get TONS of compliments from men and female;-) I did gain a few lbs back (TOTALLY NORMAL!) because you can't live on soup and Gatorade ..lol! But my waist continues to be small compare to my big lovely booty:-))) Now I will post a few pics, but they will be with clothes on...I was not to happy when I tried to remove some pics on RS and it wouldn't let me. RS claims the right to everything you put on here and make it quite difficult to remove anything..grrrrr:-(( so anywho enough with that! I do want to congratulate vets and newbies on their journey it's a tough one! Hugs, kisses and lots o' luck;-***


Giiiiiiiiiirrrrllllll you look HOT! I'm 10 months salama and loving it yeah we gain a couple pounds and lose a couple Pounds but we have to work on it to keep it tight and this booty ain't going no where

Hello Aelice2008 I just did hope something helps!
Thank u and good luck sweety!

Added update;

By the way a very important detail I forgot to add is that I am planning on a tummy tuck in the future!!!!! because once my tummy softend up my skin got pretty loose:-(( yes I feel I still look good but us women are never really satisfied.. Wink wink;-)


Hey, you look amazing! Thanks for sharing your story. I have been interested in Dr Ghurani and Dr Salama but I have now read two profiles that mentioned burning from Dr Salalma's lipo so I am a bit scared to go with him. I remember going online and seeing that Dr G and Dr S both worked from EPS clinic but now Dr G has moved. I went online to his website but it continues to be down. Is his work place safe and can you tell me where it is please. I need to travel from Ireland to see him before deciding so it is a big decision financially. Thank you for all your info and I hope you are happy and healthy and down right sexy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 x

Hi curvy88, so for me Dr. rami was the best ! I researched for a year and was totally comfortable with my decision. Not once did I feel doubtful with rami even though I was one a his first few patients. He was relatively new to bbl ,he was a cosmetic surgeon for other areas. I wouldn't say he's the best but for ME i felt he was and still is. When I decide on round 2 that's gonna me my Dr. Now I really can't give you much info on him now because it's been over a year that I had my SX. Have you called EPS?? Whichever Dr you choose make sure you feel as comfortable and safe as possible.. GL sweety:-)
I am a dr rami girl my self, and love him I wouldn't go anywhere els he is always there when you need him and does fantastic work! I'm 6 weeks post op from a mommy make over :) and now thinking of getting a BBL with him :) good luck :)
