Wow weird they told you to loose weight my consult I was 182-186 not exactly sure but e never told me to lose weight but I have been dieting to get down to 170 before surgery just so by stomach comes out the inch I want... My advice is no carbs to little carbs eat 6 small meals a day snack with fruits eat beef chicken with a salad ... Los and lots of water as well excesise even for just 30 min... After surgery I was like I'm getti surgery Imma eat what I want I blew up to 207 now current 191 and my goal is 170 by December and after surgery maintain 165 ... Any less ill look sick I have muscles from track days so I'm more solid in areas ... Hole that helped and I didn't ramble lol

No I don't recommend any diet supplements. Too risky to me, but some Dr's have access to very low calorie protein shakes that will give you all the nutrients you need. Have to check in your area.
Reply
Hello QTQT. Good luck with your journey. You might want to try a very low calorie diet. You should be able to find a Dr. or clinic that offers such programs. Otherwise workout & eat lots of fruit & proteins. No white carbs or starches, no sugar. Good luck.

hey try your dr for a prescription for iron. my dr gave me a script for iron pills and one pill is 324mg. that is so much better than taking it 5 times a day or so. i was previously anemic and was taking them twice a day so i just continue that until even after surgery. good luck

so initally i was looking and the 1. best western
2. Hampton inn
3. residence inn by marriot
but ive been looking at condos on tripadvisor and i think i might swing that way, some are 200-800 cheaper than the hotels and are nice. have full kitchens, privacy for me or near by and have things like pool, gym, movie theatre, park, and back yards for my daughter and mother to enjoy.

my only reason for not choosing one would be the cleanliness of a house/condo rental vs a hotel .

anywhoo thats it for now. im still excited wanting to get it over and done with but some comments are so negative and has me second guessing which i dont enjoy cause i felt i had made an imformed decision.
im gonna start buying up things and keeping the recipt lol

Ok so i wemt to my dr office today to do my blood...

ok so i wemt to my dr office today to do my blood work and ekg, i was seen by a resident who was really nice and asked what i needed it for and i explained she seemed understanding and interested. when putting in the lab work form she ws unsure of certain codes and had to ask my family dr for assistance. my family dr than came in and was super negative in a nut shell because i dont feel like typing : im lazzy, and that im going to die from an embrolism because of the high mortality rate and that someone has to die and it might be me :0 how do you say that to someone ive already had that fear which is why i wanna do my will just in case i love my daughter so much and would hate to leave her mom less for something like an ass but i do need this for me, i need that boost of confidence. so since my appt i have been comtemplating my decision and doing extensive research on the mortality rate and i still feel on the fence.

important things to ask?????????

1. is the dr a board certified plastic surgeon and certifed with the american society of aesthetics and plastic surgeons?
2. is the anesthesiologist board certified?
3. is the office/surgical room certified/accredited?
4.does the dr have experience?
5. does he ahve hospital privalleges?
6. is the office equipped for emergencies?
7. how far is the closest hospital?
8. how much lidocaine per/kg do you use? (recommended 35mg-45mg)

things to know???

do they use lidocane? lidocane can slow down your heart, lower your blood pressure and aggrevate your brain causing seizure than coma
fluid over load can cause your lungs to drown
clots/loose fat that travel to your lungs, heart, and brain= DEATH
perferation of the abdominal wal;s or bowels, you would need surgery within 24-48hours to save your life
too much fluid=dilution of the blood SYMPTOMS: lightheaded, restlessness, drowsiness, ringing in ears, slurred speach, metallic taste in mouth, numbness of lips amd tongue, shiverig, muscle twitching, seizure
too much lidocaine for too long= laxy heart muscles and aggrevated brain
poor patient health. excessive fat removal, using too much fluid, ans multiple procedures increase riak of death


i knew the surgery had risk i was not oblivious and i knoew death could happen but now im scared shitless
hey im considering going to jimerson or salama, do u kno what percent amount do we have to pay to llock in our rates?

Ok guys so when i went to my dr to get my blood...

ok guys so when i went to my dr to get my blood work done she was very rude, negative and against it. she then told me she would refer me to a weightloss clinic so i went today and it seemed great. i dont necessarly think im overly fat but i could stand to loose a few pounds. my surgery is 3weeks 1day away and i hafta go back in 2weeks the 26th having lost 7-10lbs minimum which would be fine with me. as of today im 170.4lbs 5'5 1/2, bmi 27, 39% of my body is fat. she said based on that info i should weigh 154, however she would like me to be 135-138 because im young i feel that is to small for me to have the curvy body i desire. any who based on their plan i should loose 20lbd in 1 month which i would be fine with but i would hafta push back my surgery, WHAT WOULD YOU DO. i dont mind doing this plan after surgery but i dont wanna loose my expensive$$$ ass, so im thinking if i can loose the 10-15lbs folliwing the plan before surgery that would be kool cuz i may loose some after surgery anyways lol ok im babbling now. so basically would you postpone your surgery to loose more weight OR would you keep your date and do what you could????? 150 is good for me i think so i would need to loose 20lbs in 3weeks 1day
If you're 170 and your ideal weight is 154, Salama want you to be 20-25 lbs over weight, and that's where you are (I will paste it).

And I also read that's it's better to lose weight after sx, opposed to prior, that way you have enough fat versus to little, and your fat cells are the correct size (will paste as well)

In conclusion...I wouldn't stress it, keep in mind you said your dr. Was rude and negative...

***pre surgery weight
 Moises Salama, MD 30 Aug 2012
@Beautifully broken - Good morning. This is Ruben. For a rule of thumb, we ask patients to be 15-20 lbs above nomal weight. So just keep in mind, we do that so Dr.S can easily access fat rather than coming up short on amount of fat from being to skinny. So 5 more lbs won't hurt, and you can always lose them after surgery once recovered. I hope this helps. 
Ruben
      Gaining weight prior to BBL
I highly recommend my patient to gain weight and to maintain weight at about 20-25 lbs above their ideal weight. This gives the surgeon enough fat to make a drastic change in one's body type. Definitely consult with your surgeon but that is my suggestion.

fill prescriptions
buy shower curtains (blood on bed), arnica gel (swelling), antibacterial soap, firming lotion, panty liners, baby wipes, hand sanitizer, gauze and medical tape, benadryl
buy some maxi dresses, genie pants, leggings, tanks, circulation socks, night gown dress
get pedicure-oct 1
get hair done- either wash and trim or single brainds or wig. some easy no fuss
bring lap top or tablet, magazines, dvds, music
I saw you said you were gonna buy yeast infection medicine but if I was you while youre on the antibiotics eat yogurt with active and live cultures like 3 times a day while you take the medicine. This way you wont need the cream.

Well in mu opinion I was 207-211 as now I'm 174 my goal before surgery was 170 and then after surgery goal wa 160 but 158 to have wiggle room ... So I say lose as much as you can healthy and do surgery cause thenyou don't want to not have enough fat for your booty projection you want then after surgery loose the rest ... You might lose some an inch or so but it'll be overall not jut booty !!!

How much will it cost me to fill it in Florida or even buffalo with no insurance? Hope not too much :( . To any of the vets out there plz let me know what to pack. 2weeks and 2days left WOoHOoooo
Arnica Montana I ordered from amazon (the pill), the gel purchased at walmart.
Bioflavanoid and bromelian I purchased at a health food store.
I'm uninsured as well, and this evening I got my percs at cvs for $12.50 using a discount card (really easy, just apply at rxrelief.com)
Colace you can get over the counter, and the nausea and antibiotics I'm still shopping around for the best priced pharmacy, with $60 being the cheapest.

IF IM FORGETTING ANYTHING PLZZZZZZZZZZZZ LET ME KNOW
I was looking through your list and looks like you have everything, more than enough, the only other thing I don't see are tank tops to wear under your garment...be careful taking all those different supplements at once, you never know what counteracts with what. Just stick to what the dr. ordered or call the office and ask them exactly what you need so you don't buy unnecessary items. Just make sure you buy healthy foods, try to get a mini smoothie machine and buy lots of spinach and fresh fruits when you get out to FL that will help with your healing and bowel movements. all these supplements are so unnecessary, remember you have to take pain killers plus antibiotics, plus iron plus vit c and then you add all this other stuff, it might be too much.

Thanks for taking time to go over my list :-) and I need to buy some tanks girl its soooo many damn pills its ridiculous I gag and vomit every time I need to take one I'll be glad when its over and yes I'll bring my mini blender thanks, and do my best to maintain healthy eating habits

havnt told my childs father but he will most likely pick us up from the airport so im not sure how i will play it off....hmmmm

also debating lipo of thighs the top and inner and lipo to arms not sure i ont wanna have multiple surgeries but dont wanna have to keep more belly fat cause i wanted additional lipo sooooo hmmmmmmm

anywhooo ive talked too much lol
Thank goodness for the pill update, now I won't be beating my self up for missing a dose, and that ugly bioflavanoid!

Good job with dropping those 20lbs girl! How long did it take you?

Pizza is sooooo darn good,it shouldn't come with calories lol and we shouldn't be in the class that has to lose weight....I would love to be one of the girls that can't keep on weight just to eat pizza...and chipotle....and EVERYTHING lol

I think I want my upper inner thighs done too, idk will see what happens in the consult, but just by reading the other girls posts, I probably wouldn't do the arms at the same time, especially with the little one, you will need your arms a lot, and it's painful. Plus you need to hold and lift little mama., not to mention that it seems like more girls regret having it b/c they dont see much of a difference.

first i would like to say thank you to all you fab ladies for sending me your prayers and love, it definately worked :D
day of urgery i kept on waking up every hour in fear of missing larry and surgery so finally 5:40am came and i started getting ready double checked my bag and headed down stairs where i met larry @ 6:15am he got to the medical centre @ 6:29am nobody was there so i sat on the floor outside the office till 6:59 when monica came she brought me to the bathroom i gave her a urine sample i changed into the paper outfit and waited for dr salama in this office, @ 8:05 am the cute anestegiologist(spell check) came in and asked me a few questions. dr salama then arrived took my b4 pics, drew on me and i told him im trusting him however if u can gimmie dis booty i woud be happy, showed him my wish pic and i was off to the OR i got on te table i got 1 needle to numb the area and then the iv and i was out lol. when i woke up i was on my stomach and was so happy to be alive i kept trying to roll over and lift my legs but it was super difficult my legs were so damn heavy i guess the nurses realized and quickly got me out the bed into the wheel chair and out the dr i was sooooo out of it and was feeling like wtf. they were giving me information about what to do after that i was unable to process. larry got me i lied down on my stomach in the back seat got to the hotel larry and the hotel clerk helped me upstairs i than laid on the bed and they left. still no percs i was not in pain but def uncomfortable and thought to myself if this is the pain i can tolerat it. so its 145 and im finally back in my room hanging out and the pain starts to come around 3-5 larry comes with the percs and i pop it and i feel better. i took walks in the room, and hallway i think i went outside cant member. day2 wake up in the morning stiff and sore took me 30min to get out of the bed (not fun) i looked in the mirror and had some serious bruising under breast. larry came and i sat in the front seat on my knees facing the back got to the surgical centre to take off my garnment it hurt like 6?10 cause she doesnt stop and isnt necessarly gentle after that back to hotel took walks outside, and around hotel. my ass is huge i feel its a little to big so hopefull it goes down some. im changing my drains every 2+ hours i dont think its draining as much anymore. i took my first shower yesterday i started off on my knees in fear the shower would hurt but pouring warm water down my back felt really good then i took a towel put it in warm water and had it on my back, when i came out i put on the arnica gel (felt amazing) and polysporin and put my waist cincher on while my mom washed and dried my garnment.took me like 40min to get it back on cuz my booty is huge lol. ended up sleeping on the floor day one cuz i couldnt get into bed. last night i leaned on a pillow tower. this morning i had gas which is extremley painful had to have 2 cups of tea to help fart/burp it out. ummm i took a walk with my daughter after i felt better but i was really hot. the maid stole my cell phone :@ so i lost the pics the nurse took of me. ummmmm as of this moment my pain is 6/10 , the worst part is when u sleep and wake up ur sooooooo stiff and sore. im kinda all over the place but i just wanted to get this up if u have any questions please let me know. ohhh the pubic drain is a BIT** omg and my waist at the sides burn when i move. my big granny panties dont fit me anymore lol.
i would suggest not to add your arms or thighs because you need them soo much and ladies start doing push ups cuz ur gonna need that arm/upper body stregnth

oh i met foreverbooty and her friend they are so great funny and nice and she looks amazing big ol booty nice dip in the back and a curvy waist. i saw her day 3 so she prolly looks better now
i also saw another girl who had the bbl with arm, chin and thighs done too she looked like she was in alot of pain

lol its really funy when ur at the office cuz all the bbl girls have the same waddle lol

until nxt time
Glad u made it ok u look good hope u have a happy recovery oxoxox

little update doing my best ladies lol
yesterday i had on and off again headaches, hott hott butt, pain in my left leg above knee, stomach pain so i called rubenx2, salama x2, and txt nancy i finally got a resspond ruben said he would call salama and get him to call me which he did i told him what happened and he asked my temp 38.90c and he said i was running a fever and to come into he office tmw morning (today) and told me to keep the garment off for a little which i did cause i was in so much much pain and hot and cold so i didnt mind i also had not drank and eaten as much as i should have which is what prolly contributed to it. so toay i went to the office feeling better and he took off mtgarment looked at my but and incisions said he doesnt see an infection and said im healing nicely. i have to small flat spots towards the bottum of my butt cheeks he said it may even out and its normal cuz my ass is playing tug a war with the fat. hmmmmm im feeling better today sleeping is torture cuz when u wake uo your sooo damn stiff its crazy. since sx my mouth has been fkd up not sure if it related or just a coincidence but i have a blister under my tounge, one in the back haon the right side and my left lower side the teeth hurt i also have a weird taste in my mouth and after sx when i put my nose ring back in it was swollen, sore, and its pussing and looks like it may form a keloid weird! ummmm i put polysporin, bandaid, and cotton balls over the insisions to eliviate pain. my elbows, knees and knuckles hurt from lifting and moving my body around i need knee/elbow pads and gloves lol.

so ladies drink your water and gatorade, use knee pads/elbow pads, a stool for high beds, i use a bucket beside the bed to pee in, get a hotel with a kitchen its necessary, and bring lots of dresses, my panties dont fit anymore lol, sports bras for ur girlies lol.

anything else let me know yall

Hey ladies sorry i been MIA been really busy but...

hey ladies sorry i been MIA been really busy but basically ive have 3 massages 2 with alene (spell check) very painful but but shes really nice and my last one was with her replacement (she had surgery) laura who also used an ultr sound machine. like i said each massage was painful but with each it hurt a little less and my last massage i didnt take a perc and left a difference so take ur 2 perc and 20-30min b4 ur massage starts.

i went from an xl garment to a large and was told im gonna need a medium very soon

i kept my drains in for an extra day because I felt i still had alot a fluid so i had my 3rd massage and then removed my drains and the pubic one got a little stuck "OUCH X10000" i know some ladies say it doesnt hurt, however mine was very painful

i still get really stiff when i wake up

ive had a bowel movement everyday since day3, i had 2 baby jars of prunes and that was it

on the flight i used the boppy pillow and leaned forward (weight was on my thighs) for take off, than kneeled for 2hrs 20min apprx then the last 30min i got up walked and used the bathroom and used the boppy and leaned forward for landing. ummmmmi had lost my form so i didnt bother say anything just did my own thing it wasnt too bad

i got back and i didnt tell my boyfriend andything before hand and he noticed lol said i look like nikki kinda lol but he loves it, says dr did a great job, but i told him i only did lipo and he believes me :D yay me lol

i didnt cut my chair b4 i left so i gotta figure out how to do it now

any questions ladies just ask

i met afrobooty, foreverbooty and a few others and they are all amazing and look fab
im not sure what method i used but he lipoed my full abdomen, flanks and full back. i ready somewhere that the method doesnt matter as much as the surgeons techn and skillthnak you

super itchy, with shooting tingling pain, my stomach sticks out cuz i have no compression eveything is too big now, and the butt part of the garment is saggy wtf soooo sad. and yesterday after my shower i got all these little white bumps all over my stomach and maybe my back too kinda scary.

massage question: are your massages as ruff as the one at the office? i found a place b4 sx and they said they did lympthatic massage but after going 2x the lady admitted to not knowing how to do it.
then found a guy who is trained in lymphatic massage and hes very gentle he said lym massage is gentle cuz if ur rough u can colapse something so im confused do i want a rough deep tissue type massage or gentle lymphatic massage?

i need to go back to diet life like b4 sx and stay away from junk and carbs i thought if i ate a little bad my butt would grow (dr salama said if u want a bigger butt after sx gain weight) but its not working :( so im just gonna loose 10lbs and mantain

Hey ladies sry i been mia but ive been busy like...

hey ladies sry i been mia but ive been busy like most o us are. any who here is a mini update on me and my progress. i will try to post pics.

11weeks post op
stomach still a little big but instread o labby its hard
stomach still numb/sensitive
lower back still sore and swollen

im 70% happy with my results
i have flat stops
the bottom o my ass goes down like a slope
waist/belly/upper back still fatty and ive maintained good eating habits and have lost weight since procedure

however i am happier with my figure body. i went from wearing m/l shirts to hide the lab to wearing xs/s shirts some with space around the tummy so thats a +++
but i have noticed that being my frame is smaller my arms come of as big even though they arnt big so i will be working on that.
the waist on all my pants are too big but my thighs are still thick so its somewhat of a challange.

i would like to loose and tine my arms, loose and tone thinghs and shrink waist while flattening tummy as or my back i hope it goes with continued exercise.

as i said before my stomach is still sensitive @ almost 3 months post op, lower back still sensitive, and i have a terrible burning sensation when i stretch or move which i hope goes away sooner than later.

if anyone has specific questions or comments hit up my pg or inbox and i WILL get back to you. hope i have been helpful

also people getting this sx = keep in mind all the extra cost other than the sx ie: flight, hotel, groceries, medications, magazines and other nick nacks, spending money, massages, extra garnments, medical cost they may come up after the insurance you purchase, waist cinchers, new clothes, loss wages from work, a nurse in needed etc the list goes on so yes the sx it sefl is afordable but all the other cost add up and it becomes LIKE DAMN and when ur not 100% satisfy its that much more upsetting and expensive if u need a tounch up even if it at a discounted rate.

but good luck and happy healing to everyone i hope this hasnt been a negative post but its just where im @ right now in my on going healing process.
Hope you're doing well

My 2nd attempt at trying to update. here we go......

my 2nd attempt at trying to update.
here we go..........
after sx i had a "flat stomach" only when wearing the garment and board but as soon as i would take it off my belly would pop out. i have fat pockets under each breast. i have dimples in each butt cheek and also flat stops in each cheek. one hip is fuller and sticks out more than the other. and i still have back fat. i weighed in @ 163LBS DAY of sx and as of now im 157lbs so i have LOST but still have a belly and back fat. ive been eating well carbs only 2-3x per week and working out moderately 2-4x per week. i dont really wanna loose weight but want to tone. i have made my complaints known and the initial follow up i had with salama he too agreed he saw the flat spots and to wait 6months. so i have 2 months to go and i dont see them going anywhere. this is not a jab at him i still think he is a teriffic dr , but i definately need some tunning and answers besides "swelling" as too why i have a hard lump that runs along my lower abdomen. however i am 7/10 happy with ass its fuller that b4, but not as big as i wanted. i will speak with the office again in april as to what they intend to do to correct these issues and decide from there if i will have dr salama correct these issues or start my journey of searching for a sx again. im looking into DR. robles in DR, yily, campos, perry, salzheur and a few others. if you have any other questions ill be glad to answer i will be updating these with pics

also the way the top of my butt was injected and lower back lipoed i have a "shelf affect" at the top of my butt its very painful when wearing pants with a belt because the belt sits on the concaved area and looks somewhat un-natural i hope with a round 2 it can be corrected into more of a slope vs a hump. i will do my best to show it in my photos.

how could i forget i have a hard lumpy belly and i still experience a burning/ripping sensation when getting up from the lying down position or sitting down and if i firmly(not roughly) run hands down and around my waist, belly and back it is very painful. it burns and hurts super sore

I had my Tummy Tuck with him on Jan 21 I can tell you I very happy with my before and after care. I am supposed to go back for a bbl after June but for right now I have to get over this Tummy Tuck pain. lol! I did see alot of in and out girls and I was impressed. The one that impressed me the most was the one who came in for her 1 yr follow up. Almost made me wish I had my BBL first.

Mini update. my review was never posted to scare...

mini update. my review was never posted to scare anybody i was just speaking on personal experience. i still think dr salama is a good doctor. however i did have a few issues during my healing process and made my concerns known. after a recent follow up its confirmed that i am still experiencing swelling and it will go away with time. however ladies when going abroad for sx anywhere be it the u.s., mexico, europe wherever you have a disadvantage during ur healing process not beinging able to recieve the same constant care as the locals so keep that in mind. even when looking for a massuse thats says they can do the correct massage it may not be the same as ceilia's or what the dr wants.lol i feel like ive jumped acrossed my review rambling but yes. knowing what i know now if i could go back i would have:

stayed at a hotel with a full kitchen
been at my goal weight or 5-10lbs above
stayed 3weeks
bought a small tight ass waist cincher
wore garnment and cincher for atleast 9weeks

so ladies basically what im saying is if something doesnt feel/look right call/txt dr salama or RUBEN take pictures and watch the progress. they will help you wether its reccomendations or a review. remember we all heal differently, have different shapes and body types, live different lifestyles and eat different foods, all these things can be a factor. anywho i will be going in for a revision to tweak a few things that were discussed. its a long hard journey and alot of money and emotions my mother often had to remind me its major sx it will take time to heal, and swelling may last. stay beauiful ladies and as always msg me if u have any questions
Hey girl you look great!!! I am also a Salama patient may 2013, did you ever find out how much lidocaine Salama uses?? Thanks for your review !!!

i asked the anestesiaologist (spell check) before sx, he told me but i forgot u can email and ask

so i will be doing a revision with dr salama and im happy he has agreed to do it. however im very impressed with dr yiliy and love for her to sculpt me and do her thang but she is more money. i was quoted 2,900(lipo of stomach, flanks, full back) +(thighs and arms)3,200. i feel i would be happy after sx with her. however with dr salama the revision is 800 but im not sure where he would lipo, it wont be all the original areas. my stomach and maybe another donor site if more fat was needed. what would you do???????? plz help
I'd choose yily just bc she gets all the fat out she is known for her sculpting if I wasn't a single mom I'd go overseas to her

dr salama revison- $800 (lipo to abdomen (unsure if full or lower/upper ft to flat spots and dents

dr yily de los santos-$3,200 (lipo:full ab, waist, back,arms,thighs, w/ft to booty

dra hilario duran-$3,500 (lipo:full abdomen, waist, back, arms, thighs w/ft to booty

unsure if ill be completely happy after salama just does that as i feel i have no waist but i have faith i guess lol.
the other two ladies are in dominican Rep and are amazing both priced well, however after spending 6,500 its alot. im still uneasy with going to DR although i travelled out of country already to see salama. what is a girl to do????? ladies please give me pros and cons to the 3 scenarios you opions mena alot. my mom isnt a fan with going to DR so she says salama but my sweetie is a fan of DR and says no salama lol HELP! ontop of these cost i need to factor my SAFETY #1, and additional cost like flight, hotel, medication etc if im in miami i need to supply my own food as DR has a recovery home with nurses and meals, both are in hot climates and are beautiful so recovery will be made a lil easier. hmmmmm
also considering breast lift with implant and labia plasty.

oh yeah although its a revision im still finding it difficult to co-ordinate my schedual with dr salama which is a pain in the ass where the other too i have alot more flexability. please help

either way im purchasing a squeem this time and wearing it 24/7 for the first 3-months. tootles my ladies

havnt done an update cuz aint shit changed lol. belly still round lol ass still slopes. although i do get a pain in my lower abdomen feel like the skin and right under the skin are really tender and sore to the tound not sure why
Come on and see Duran on 6-5! I don't want to go alone and my mama trying to come with me- can't let hat happen! We can be roommates!

I've lost confidence I'm Salama and his team the negative reviews and revisions are climbing I'm not looking into a third sx unless it's my choice not a need. Im considering duran and yily there work is great and the price is right. Duran speaks english and replies fast and haa the dates i want but i havnt seen alot of her results on here mostly her website. Yily doesnt speak english, getting booked quick and ive read reviews on some medevil type equipment and back draing. All i want is to come out Alive, safe, healthy, no hiccups just a smooth sx and recovery and a banging body. Am i asking too much? I think not lol. Ladies chime in and give your input on these two doctors and show me post op patients thanks
Girl looking at your pics looks like i am looking in mirror. I only have curves when i wear a garment. U rock!!!! Dont waste anymore $ hunn just do it the old fashioned way. I know i am. Take care and kit ;)

Too many negative comments about yily now so dr duran it is. Ive emailed dr salamas teaM
About availability for my revision over 2weeks ago with no responce. F that you aint the only surgeon nor are you the best "aint nobody got time for dat". Lol. Anywho i want a May date so i can enjoy my body for the summer but ill be missing like 10 days of school and be put on academic probation prolly. Ugh only if it was done rite the first time. Only negative at the moment is 3000 isnt alot but it is when youve already spent 6500 dra duran used to answer next day now its a week i hope she isnt over worked and starts producing shit i expect to come out healthy safe and amazing seeing ad i only need tweaking. Until next time ladies
I hear you, good luck. I need tweeking also but I worry that it'll make me look worse. I can't wait to see your results. I was thinking of asking for a revision but I think I need a TT now. IDK we'll see. TTYL

Dra yily De Los Santos- BBL with lipo to the stomach, full back, waist= $2,900.00 add thighs and arms= $3,200.00

Dra Agustina Hilario Duran- BBL with lipo to the stomach, full back, waist, thighs and arms =$3,500
she has 8 years experience

Dr Alejandro hernandez- BBL with lipo to the stomach, waist and full back $4000-$4,500 depending on your body +$500 for each additional area of lipo
he has 18years experience

Dr Salama revision price $800 includes lipo to the abdomen and he will fix my hips, flat spots and dents in booty while taking that fat pockets left behind first time around
has between 2-3years experience

dr duran is my first choice than yily
dr salama is only charging $800 for a revision? That's pretty good! But yily got bomb lipo skills. I want to consider her for a round too just for a better waist to hip ratio but man, these reviews on her are scaring me.
Reply
yea its not bad but im scared i still wont be satisfied since hes only doing stomach not waist and is being very vague in what he exactly plans to do. ugh i would much rather spend $800 and go to america than 3000+

round 2 to fix uneven lipo, almost 9 months post op

almost 9 months post op nothing has changed abdomen still looks deformed, back fat still there, hard lump still there, ass still has flat spots
Hi love. So I can tell you Yily is top notch. Dr Hernandez also does great work but as you can see he is more expensive than the other doctors. I'm a Yily Doll. I paid $3650 for just about a full make over. I had a baby 6 months prior to my surgery. Im 37 but I dont look it...thanks to Yily. Good luck with whomever you choose!!

Hey girl! Im going through the same thing. I need a revision and its beedn like three weeks and they haven't responded. I have three lumpds, flat spots, dents, unevenness, fat that wasn't removed, abdomen looks weird and someone thought I had a TT. Im thinking of going to Duran maybe in a yr. I need someone who is patient, kind, and not too expensive and that's duran. Good luck to you, keep us posted. TTYL
