BBL Part 1: Vedette 317 Users: Like or Dislike? Did u Lose Volume With It? - Aventura, FL

Hi ladies, I've been reading n searching on how to...

Hi ladies, I've been reading n searching on how to get my butt back not knowing about The BBL! Funny thing is that I had a BA last year n not once did I see or read about BBL. Let me begin by letting u all kno how I got here, as a young girl I had a big butt, n very big butt teenage years n after my first child I gained 60 lbs!! Wow! Right? Since then I've had 6 other kids. I've gone up n down in weight n I still had a butt until a few months ago after losing 30 lbs n funny thing was that it seemed like the last 15lbs I lost all my butt completely! Yet I feel fatter n look fatter in stomach area! In all the times I lost weight my butt was never a loss. So I guess it's all bcuz of age? So even tho I'm happy that I lost weight, I'm out of shape n don't even recognize the body I see in the mirror!! I feel I have lost the best part of me n I'm lost without it! I've been so sad n have complained to my husband n I've even cried feeling as if I lost a leg. I kno it may seem stupid, but that's the best way I can describe it. So after searching online I found real self n all of u beautiful ladies posting pics n expressing ur hearts n experiences, that I decided to join the sisterhood n maybe share same experience w others. I'm 41 n I feel young but my body is telling me otherwise! LOL!

So about a month ago I asked my husband if I lost my @$$ n he said no :/ ya right! I hate that he cannot b honest! I guess he thinks the outcome would b worse if he tells the truth! Lol, poor thing sometimes us women get mad no matter wut. Or at least that's my case. Anyway when he seen how depressed I was searching for a cure, he gave in right away when I asked if I could get a BBL. He is still very worried about the procedure n praying I come out of it alive n without complications!

It's amazing to kno wut we do just to feel good about ourselves. I never thought I would have to or should I say need to have surgery to get a butt after always having one!! If u see me u would think ya right! But I kid u not I had a butt like Jennifer lopez....

Well ladies after going to different consultations here in California not one has given me the the good feeling of saying yup this is the surgeon that I feel will give me the butt I had let alone give me the butt I want! LOL! I couldn't even tell the difference of before n after photos! So coming to real self n reading n looking at many of u ln ur new transformations I decided to travel to adventura Florida:) problem is that Dr. Salama is booked for jan so Cynthia asked if I would b interested in Dr. Ghurani , n I said yes bcuz I seen how great Asiangotbooty looks n most of all bcuz she felt secure n safe w him, n since he has worked w Salama I feel good about choosing him:)

Now the expenses of flight, condo, food, SX, n anything else I may need will run me around 12,000 to 13,000.... Yikes!! Hard thing is I have to pay cash! Good thing is my hubby will b getting a bonus in January w the help of God:)

My measurements right now r 41 36 42 n mainly lower tummy from having the last child:(

So ladies can anyone let me kno all the things I need to buy n any advice on garments n where to purchase them? I sure would Luv to kno that ancient Chinese secret Asiangotbooty used for bruising!:)

I will post my pics later today.

Seems as we all go through different emotions on this BBL journey. U can b happy n thrilled one moment n scared n panicky the next! I read someones post and she had noted all the dangers of this SX. I kno we all kno the possibility of death as an out one of this procedure but when u really read it n like she said don't think it can't happen to u! Well when I read that my heart literally skipped a beat! Here I'm trying to hide n b all secretive with family or friends finding out, n yet wut if I die out there? Oh my Goodness this isn't a good feeling! I'm usually a very hard n brave person but the thought of leaving my children behind never being able to even see them grow up or get married breaks my heart in a zillion pieces!! All bcuz mommy had to get a big O Booty!

Well I will pray to my Lord almighty that he calms my nerves n that he will not take me w him till I'm old:) lets face it ladies I think we may all have these thoughts n sum of us may not actually admit it!

Have any of u asked ur surgeons how many deaths he's had? If so did they answer it?

I really want to feel positive about all this so I will try to get myself out of this feeling n turn it around w excitement! Wish me luck ladies.....

Hi ladies, I'm starting to get the blues , wondering if I will b able to pay for my SX n have Christmas for the kids! I feel guilty for taking away from their gifts to b able to pay for SX:( it's really hard when there r 7 to buy for n their godparents n my godchildren n grandparents WoW! I'm not one to get just any little thing n if I did it still runs into a lot of $! My hubby n I went shopping yesterday bcuz I want to get everyone's gifts out of the way so we can concentrate on saving $ ! Cynthia told me I had to pay off my SX 2 weeks prior:/ I was hoping to finish paying by my pre-op which is day b4 my SX.... I read on someone's post that they paid off on day of pre-op.... Anyway my hubby won't get his bonus check in time for SX... My stomach is in knots... I'm praying so hard that it all works out! I don't work n it's all on my hubby, n I feel so bad about that! Got to get ready for church ladies.... Until next time:)

I go to the Dr.on the 4th of Dec n I have to say I'm nervous about it! I pray I'm healthy enough to b cleared for my SX on the 9th of January! I have already paid for fight tickets n put deposit for condo and the deposit for BBL:) I plan on paying more money for SX once I'm cleared. My main concern is my heart, seems I've been very stressed lately with my kids mainly older ones. My oldest needs money for college n trying to pay for that n buy Christmas gifts n also save money for BBL is a bit nerve wrecking!!!! I would do my BBL on a later date but if I change it I won't have anyone to go w:( I kno things will either get worse or better n I will try my hardest to prepare myself for all obstacles. I will let u all kno how my exam goes n if I'm cleared to have SX...... Until next time my sisters:)

Hi ladies, I've really been studying my back side n I realized that I have a lot of cheek that needs to b filled! Idk if its bcuz I useto have a big butt or if that's just the way it looks.... Lol! It's like a jumbo balloon that has deflated n now to re-inflate seems like it will need a lot:( I wish so badly I could go in right now to see Dr. Ghurani but I have to wait till Jan;( although I did send in pics but its not like we discussed how many cc's I wanted or how big! At first I said I didn't want to go super big... But now w volume loss or swelling gone down, wut ever it may b.... I'm thinking must Go BIG!!!! I kno I didn't post pics of my backside but I will when I get SX clearance.... So if u ladies have suggestions or kno how many CC's they can put in w max taken out.... I've been waiting to hear from Cynthia or Nancy to give me a ballpark figure..... But u kno how our anxiousness gets the best of us!!! Hahaha

I agree with everything ChesireKitty stated. Just to add, however, the most Dr. Salama has put in a girl is 1400ccs in each cheek. But this does not mean that homegirl retained all the fat, or that she had the biggest ass due to individual body type, desired shape etc.
  • Reply
Yes that's wut I have noticed:) even sum girls w less cc's look like they have bigger butts.... This is y I'm concerned.... Bcuz my butt cheeks just seem like it will need a lot just to some wut fill.... Gosh I hope they get back to me soon!
I don't think there is a limit but there is a limit of how much your body can take.

Ok so I have been concerned w my weight n if Dr....

Ok so I have been concerned w my weight n if Dr. Ghurani will b taking out max amnt permitted which is 4000 CC's will I still b too fat, n how much will i need to re-fill these empty butt cheeks! I had Cynthia show Dr. Ghurani my pics n he suggested I lose 15 lbs n that I also get my inner n outer thighs done.... I don't think I will have the money for it cuz it's $500 for each so $1000 more:( I would Luv to add them bcuz I have a lot of fat n cellulite on the back! Even though they say it won't take cellulite away but a couple of girls have done it n their cellulite was gone so idk????? I'm a Lil more excited in a way bcuz my results may just b a little better but at same time I'm worried that due to the weight loss will the fat stay on the new booty???? My concerns r bcuz I only have a little time left before my SX! Also if I do add my ugly thighs n w all the fat I still have in my back n flanks n tummy well I wonder if I will b short changed somewhere n look fat on upper part! I'm not sure if I'm explains it right.... So I hope u understand me:) I have actually gained like 5 lbs since I sent in my pics n not bcuz they told me to gain but I guess nerves have me going n I eat when I'm nervous! So now I'm just taking it all in n I got to do wut I got to do! I pray I look good when it's done n that I won't regret losing the weight due to major booty loss!! There is no way at all I can do a round 2!!!!!!! I have too many kids to send to college!! I'm not rich!! Lol!! I'm gonna keep faith n pray he does me thin n w a BIG ASSSSS BOOTY!!!!!!! As I know we all do!!! Well wish me luck girls as its gonna b a fast transition!!!! Oh please pray my clearance passes!!

I'm thrilled that a doctor is encouraging a more ideal weight. My biggest complaint was my weight gain. I would be much happier now if I would have stayed closer to may comfortable weight range. I wish you the very best in meeting your goal ;-) what's you height and weight now?
  • Reply
I'm 5'4 n I gained a few lbs so I'm 168:( so ya I'm actually happy he suggested to lose weight but I wish he would of said so earlier! I could of lost that weight already.... But they told me not to lose anything.... Anyway I just hope everything goes well:) I have faith! I wanted to lose weight so I'm happy!
Hhhhmmm, you don't look big. At ny rate, good luck on your journey!

Hello my sisters, yesterday I called Cynthia to...

Hello my sisters, yesterday I called Cynthia to tell her I was extremely nervous to do the EKG bcuz I had been feeling like a jumpy feeling in my heart n I was just feeling scared! I didn't even kno y!!! I have 7 kids n I've been to many appts and I even had a BA last year w no worries! So y in he heck was I feeling this? Anyway she made me even more nervous bcuz she told me to calm down n relax n to really try not to b nervous bcuz the EKG will come out abnormal if I was nervous. She asked y did I feel that way? N I said idk I'm under a lot of stress! I think it was more me realizing my age n most of the ladies here on RS r youngsters n here I am this 41 yr old w 7 kids feeling like I'm 24 trying to regain my youth n the body I once had, that had me trippen! I guess I was having anxiety!! Anyway Cynthia told me if u continue to feel like that cancel ur appt till u feel calm n at ease honey ur young n ur healthy plz don't stress urself out!! So wut I did is I went to urgent care bcuz I figured if it comes out abnormal I will cancel tomorrow's appt, cuz I WANT MY BBL done!!! So I went but let me just say I felt as scared as a kid going to the dr for the first time! I had some stones that helped me w my nerves n I was rubbing the heck out of them!! Lol, but let me just say they literally calmed my nerves in a matter of minutes!! It was like I was my normal self!! They called me on n asked wut was the matter n I said I had chest pain so that they would give me an EKG n they did n it came out normal:) I was like thank u JESUS!!!! I was good to go!! Relieved relieved relieved!!!! So today at my pre-op exam I was cool calm n collective:) yay for me! My goodness how ur body can jump out of itself over nerves! I'm still not understanding y this happened to me! I'm usually not a scary cat!! Anyway now it's all about the results of the blood work....... I'm praying they come out good so I can get this body a makeover w a BIG ASS BOOTY!!!! :))

Now I can do the HCG diet so I can try n lose 15 lbs! Although when they weighed me today I weighed a lot more than I thought!:(( I'm hoping it was bcuz I was on a full bladder n wearing all my clothes n boots..... Either way I hope I can lose the 15 lbs by the 18th ...,..

Hi ladies, so let me just inform u of the pre-op clearance exam we all have to in order to b able to to go through SX..... They will send u a package and in it, contains a prepping clearance form. It's blood work and urine and EKG it reads

RX PREOP CBC, PT, PTT,HCG URINE, UA C&S, CMP, EKG
Clearance Letter

CBC- iThe complete blood count (CBC) is often used as a broad screening test to determine an individual's general health status. It can be used to:

Screen for a wide range of conditions and diseases
Help diagnose various conditions, such as anemia, infection, inflammation, bleeding disorder or leukemia, to name just a few
Monitor the condition and/or effectiveness of treatment after a diagnosis is established
Monitor treatment that is known to affect blood cells, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy
A CBC is a panel of tests that evaluates the three types of cells that circulate in the blood and includes the following:

Evaluation of white blood cells, the cells that are part of the body's defense system against infections and cancer and also play a role in allergies and inflammation:
White blood cell (WBC) count is a count of the total number of white blood cells in a person's sample of blood.
White blood cell differential may or may not be included as part of the panel of tests. It identifies and counts the number of the various types of white blood cells present. The five types include neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils.
Evaluation of red blood cells, the cells that transport oxygen throughout the body:
Red blood cell (RBC) count is a count of the actual number of red blood cells in a person's sample of blood.
Hemoglobin measures the amount of the oxygen-carrying protein in the blood.
Hematocrit measures the percentage of a person's blood that consists of red blood cells.
Red blood cell indices are calculations that provide information on the physical characteristics of the RBCs:
Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) is a measurement of the average size of RBCs.
Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) is a calculation of the average amount of oxygen-carrying hemoglobin inside a red blood cell.
Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) is a calculation of the average percentage of hemoglobin inside a red cell.
Red cell distribution width (RDW), which may be included in a CBC, is a calculation of the variation in the size of RBCs.
The CBC may also include reticulocyte count, which is a measurement of the absolute count or percentage of young red blood cells in blood.
Evaluation of platelets, cell fragments that are vital for normal blood clotting:
The platelet count is the number of platelets in a person's sample of blood.
Mean platelet volume (MPV) may be reported with a CBC. It is a calculation of the average size of platelets.
Platelet distribution width (PDW) may also be reported with a CBC. It is a measurement of the variation of platelet size.

HCG Urine- Pregnancy test

UA C&S -UA is urinalysis-done mainly to detect infection; includes remarks about color, appearance, and odor; tested for protein, glucose, ketones, blood and leukocytes.
C&S is culture & sensitivity -determines the presence of bacteria; this part will take 24 hours to "grow" in the lab before results are ready. That is the culture part. The sensitivity part is to determine which antibioics the bacteria is "sensitive" to so that the proper medicine can be determined for the infection.

CMP A comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) is a blood test that provides information about:

how the kidney and liver are functioning
sugar (glucose) and protein levels in the blood
the body's electrolyte and fluid balance

EKG An electrocardiogram (also called EKG or ECG) is a test that records the electrical activity of your heart through small electrode patches attached to the skin of your chest, arms, and legs. An EKG may be part of a routine physical exam or it may be used as a test for heart disease. An EKG can be used to further investigate symptoms related to heart problems.

EKGs are quick, safe, painless, and inexpensive tests that are routinely performed if a heart condition is suspected.

Your doctor uses the EKG to:

Assess your heart rhythm.
Diagnose poor blood flow to the heart muscle (ischemia).
Diagnose a heart attack.
Evaluate certain abnormalities of your heart, such as an enlarged heart.


Well ladies hope this helps.....

The time is starting to fly and I don't even kno exactly wut to ask for! Wut I do kno for sure is that I want all the fat removed as possible! I didn't want to go super Size on the Booty but I think after reading all these reviews that I'm going as big as possible!! I chose this route bcuz of the nice big Booty's I was seeing on RS so I'm gonna stick w that! Dr Ghurani won't tell me how many CC's he can get in there, perhaps they don't kno till they start working on us..... I just wanted a rough estimate . I keep hearing on how he's a perfectionist so I will soon see for myself.......

I have lost 6 lbs from the weight I gained but I'm down only 1 lb from original weight:/ I will take measurements again today and see the difference between now and on the 19th....

Thank u ladies for ur support n all my ladies that inbox me w so much support and great advice!

I'm only 5'4;) I now weigh 158 and I'm looking in the mirror thinking the same thing! Will I have enough fat to get a BIG BOOTY?? I'm thinking I will need to add inner n outer thighs, bcuz they have a lot of fat! ..... Thank u sweetie for thinking I will come out nicely:) when is ur SX?

Hello my Sisters:) I feel so lost and confused! I took same poses as last time and either pics are slightly closer but they look exactly the same or even bigger:( although I did lose 2 inches around my waist and 1 inch hips. I had my hubby take a pic of my backside WOW wut a ugly sight!!!!! I took 2 pics so u can see the difference between arms up and arms down:(( my backside is by far the ugliest part of me! Even though front and side may not look so bad but the backside is where I obviously need the most sculpting!! I can tell u it's from child baring that my hips have widen sooo much.

Ok ladies now that u have seen my backside should I continue to lose weight or should I stop? If I ask Ghurani he may say continue to lose weight... So I'm going to send new pics to them and see wut he says..... I really appreciate ur opinions!! Plz b honest!! I want to look thin but w a bigger booty than I originally had!! Which was 46" I'm down 5" ....

Breast -401/2
Under boobs -321/2
Waist-34
Hips/lower stomach-41
Butt41

Hello my ladies, I'm really starting to get...

Hello my ladies, I'm really starting to get excited for my SX! I'm just worried I may forget to take everything I need! I want to b strong minded as I've always been with labor 7x , but I just have this feeling that I will b in a lot of pain O__O! I have never taken any drugs during labor n I have had all my babies natural, no c-sections..... So idk how my body will react..... I pray I don't get nauseous n throw up! That's wut I fear most to b honest! I hate throwing up! Oh n I'm sad to say I gained a few lbs due to my period n holidays! Ugh!!!! Tomorrow I will do an egg day, which will help clean my liver believe it or not. About 6 eggs throughout the day n lots of water! Then I will soak in Epsom salt and baking soda also to take out the toxins from my body. I will post again on Thursday n let u kno how well it worked:)

I haven't seen anyone else orger than Asiangotbooty, n even though I kno he's done many others but I have not yet seen anyone here on RS w Ghurani Booties.....

I'm not petite, n like I said I useto have a BIG BOOTY, so I'm really praying He can achieve or better yet give me a Bigger Booty Than before!!;D I kno I shouldn't feel greedy so I will b happy w him sucking the heck out of these flanks n gut n back fat n giving me a tiny waist n BOOTYFYING me!!;D

I will update more as soon as I can. I've been tired n sleep every chance I get. For now I can say Dr. Ghurani is n absolute sweetheart!! One of the sad things is that most likely I will a small tummy tuck:( from all the kids my skin is too loose n my HVE a buldge;(( he told me this before surgery. We will see how my skin retracts. I haven't really paid attention to my butt bcuz I kno I'm very swollen!! It feels like I'm carrying a caboose back there!! I do feel pain but the worst thing I felt n I thought was gross was right after surgery when I got to the apartment I felt super nauseous n more bcuz I could taste n smell the anesthesia in my mouth! It smelled so bad!!! I gagged a Lil n right away brushed my teeth n w a couple of crackers it magically was better:) thank God bcuz I hate feeling that way!!! I don't know how many others felt this. I will go into a better detail as soon as I'm feeling better:) thank u all for your prayers!!!!

Ok ladies I HVE to say that maybe if I were taking the percs that maybe I would b doing better:) I'm hanging in there walking every hr for 10 minutes I eat something every time I get up n pee n drink Gatorade n water. The Gatorade seems so sweet n I'm not useto to it! First day my throat was a Lil scratchy, I haven't taken any percs bcuz I'm not really a medicine person. I go for massage on Monday n I'm thinking I may HVE to take a perc for that. My stomach feels numb n weird at same time. I'm in a xtra large garment now n most likely go into a large on Monday. I feel less swollen today, the pics u see r from yesterday . I had a bad experience yesterday at dr visit! I was doing great until they took off my garment n I waited about hlf hr for dr w out garment n all of a sudden I felt nauseous n hot n I felt as if my spirit was leaving my body! Thank god dr came right before I I got like that n he said oh she's getting sweaty bring her juice n he fanned me n the juice brought me back to life! They added foam n lifted the garment up. Thank The Lord I felt better!! I hate to feel nauseous !!!!! I came back to the apartment n went to sleep . I feel less pressure on my butt. Oh n I went poop today;/ I used a bucket it worked wonders! I was able to wipe myself. Ok ladies I'm gonna eat now:) update u later.

Thank u Hunnie it's my 4th day n I feel so much better!!! Today I haven't even taken any meds at all so far. ;)

Today is my 4th day post op, so I went from taking...

Today is my 4th day post op, so I went from taking cvs's generic brand of Tylenol xtra strength to Advil . I've been taking them since Friday . Dr. Ghurani said that now that I'm not bleeding I can take ibuprofen bcuz it helps ur muscles. I'm taking 3 of those about every 6 hrs or sometimes longer. I'm eating organic healthy foods, n yogurt as my snacks to help prevent yeast infection from taking sooo many antibiotics ! It's crazy!! 3 pills 3x a day!! Along w all that I'm taking vitamin c bioflavonoids B complex, arnica pills, Bromelain, iron, zinc, n I also use the arnica gel on my butt n stomach n back. Let me say it has helped me so much w the soreness n bruises!

I'm really nervous for tomorrow's massage:/ funny I wasn't at all nervous about having SX though!! Dr. Ghurani said I should take a perc b4 massage, but I think I won't. Wish me luck on that please!

I think I must of gained from last pre/op pics I posted about 6 lbs, n I might just regret that ! Anyway I'm gonna cinch as soon as I get my faja:) I didn't order one before bcuz I really just didn't kno how big I would b n didn't want to order wrong size.

I didn't bring any fitted dresses so u ladies can see how big my booty is but I will put sum yoga pants on or something:)

I've been cooking for myself since yesterday n somewhat cleaning nothing hard ! I get up from bed doing push up then lifting the caboose up to b on my knees, then scoot Lil by little w arms n knees n one leg at a time I'm off. The bed in the apartment I rented is super low, n I hated it my first 2-3 days!! U feel so much weight on ur butt that its hard to lift that sucker!! Lol...

Once I get home I will b squeezing lots of lemon w warm water first thing in the morning to help clean my liver from all these toxins we get put into our bodies n poor liver suffers from this making it harder for our bodies!! This will flush the toxins out n helps w pooping as well! I'm doing fine w that though. I hate it though bcuz ur butt cheeks r so tight that the poop gets stuck inbetween. Eww I know right!!! It's also clayish. Yuck! Funny bcuz my wipes kept getting stuck n ripping! Not funny at the time though!

Ladies I want to add that u may go thru different emotions n thinking y did u even do this! I'm not gonna lie first few days may b very very difficult! From feeling super heavy to feeling nauseous to feeling fat n swollen to not even caring about wut ur Butt or waist looks like! All u want to do is feel better!! But as soon as ur feeling better I will once again feel like before ! N that's happy n obsessed w ur booty! Lol! I haven't felt that way about my booty yet bcuz I want to b real w myself n waiting for end results! I'm also a waiting to see how my tummy n skin turns out w that!! See I wanted my body sculpted just as much as the Booty!! This has absolutely nothing to do w Ghurani at all! I HVE very thin skin. Dr Ghurani says I'm gonna look great!

Dr Rami is such a down to earth n caring man! I Luv his personality on top of his professionalism ! I kno for a fact that I made the best choice next to Salama!! Dr. Ghurani has actually been a PS longer than Salama, n they went to medical school together. I Luv how much he cares for his patients! He is also very respectful w others! Not just a pretender to the patient. The nurse was late n my husband n daughter were waiting in front of office for about 20 min n he felt bad for us, but when the nurse called to apologize bcuz she thought she had to b there at a later time, he didn't tell her off he told her in Spanish not to worry but to plz hurry n he greeted her nicely when she arrived. She was so so sorry n kept apologizing to me! I will go more into detail of how it went b4 SX n to the moment they had me count b4 I was out, tomorrow.

Oh n I want u to plz notice my b4 pics that my lower tummy kind of sags especially when facing to the left. That is the most of my concern right now. I will soon b putting msm cream n take msm that also helps heal ur skin tissue back together!

Ok ladies let me just say I was more nervous to get the massage than the SX. Y? Bcuz my stomach has been very very sore especially in flank area! That's where I guess it's either more sensitive or where I had more fat. I was thinking if it hurts me to touch myself imAgine whe they do it!! OUCH!!!!

I've been cutting down on pain Advil's down to 2 every 5 or 6 hrs. This morning I ate yogurt w fruit n sliced almonds;) anyway I needed something in my stomach, but soon after I had to poop:/ so actually I'm very glad I did bcuz I wouldn't want to HVE to go over there!! I took 3 Advil n put arnica gel all over my tummy n back n I've also been putting it on my Booty for bruising n the fact that it hurts from feeling like its blowing up like a balloon!!

So I arrive at Elite they call me in Celia tells me to take off everything n get on massage table face down, she then put a cold gel on my back n I'm assuming it was se type of ultra violet heating rubbing it on my back like ultra sound when ur pregnant going side to side n up n down n circular motion for about 5-10 min then she got baby oil n rubbed it in my feet calves n thighs which felt great!!! N I told her that n I also said but I kno the next part won't b easy! She said no mamita it's not gonna feel good. But in a calm voice. Soon after she got baby oil again b put on my back then she rubbed my down from shoulders down to ur crack where one drain is, she did this on all areas of my back . it wasnt too bAd .

Then she told me to get on my left side but to get on all 4's first so I did , then she put a poppy pillow to lay side hip n another poppy pillow for my head. Ok this was first time I mated on my side. It didn't hurt but I didn't feel comfortable either. Then she got oil again n now rubbed the right side of me and stomach n let me say some areas felt good n then all of a sudden she hit the spot of flank n it burned n hurt!! N I grunted n started to breathe like when ur in labor. I ended up getting a Lil sweaty n I usually don't swear. Lol, so anyway I think or it felt like she did that for 10-15 min then other side. I can't really say how long bcuz when ur hurting it seems longer!! Lol... Soon she was finally done n I was like ok on a scale from 1-10 it was about a 5 on just certain areas that she said I had way too much fluid build up then she told me to do certain yoga stretches n she had me do them on massage table which I can only imagine how funny that looked!!! She had it was very important to stretch to heal faster.

Finally she got me into a large garment n said as soon as u get home cut slits on sides bcuz u HVE very Big Booty!! ;) so I did:) I'm having an issue w it being too tight on crack area n I'm afraid of getting a blister !!! I walk as much as I can but I'm not right now bcuz it is bothering me in the crack area:(( I will call office n see wut I can do.

If u HVE any questions ladies feel free to ask:) I will try to get better poses but like I said I didn't bring fitted clothing n it's hard to see full affect of the Big CaBoose!

Hello my BBL SISTERS;) I'm so sorry that I...

Hello my BBL SISTERS;)

I'm so sorry that I HVE not been posting as much as I wish, I've been busy w my daughter trying to enjoy this alone time w her as it has been many many years that it has just been me n her!!!

Today I HVE my second massage n I feel so much better than how I was feeling yesterday;) I was tired most of all!

The other day I said I went from XL TO A L WELL NO that wasn't wut happened....not intentional ... Ok so Monday when I went for massage Celia who is obviously superwoman, put me a L garment from a 3X!!!!! Omg!!!! Shoot no wonder my booty was sticking out even further, it was being extremely pushed out n the thong part was killing my crack!! Lol!! I did not kno I was in a 3x! I will explain :

Dr. Rami called me that evening n asked how my massage went n I told him I only took 3 Advil 's n I put arnica gel on my entire torso n he then asked How did I feel w that, I said there were a few times I grunted n I was breathing like when I gave birth to my babies;) n all Celia kept saying was yes breathe! Lol... Rami n I were on the phone for a very long time!!! Almost an hr;) he explained so much of wut he did n so anyway when I told him they put me in a L garment he was stunned n said but u were a 3X my dear ! N I was like WUT? N he seemed concerned bcuz he said sometimes it can cause skin problems when u go too tight too fast! So he asked if I felt pain could I breathe did I feel short of breath or if my heart was palpitating fast , it was a no to all but I said I don't mind the tightness it's my crack that's killing me, he chuckled n I said well u kno I HVE a long crack n I feel this garment is for a shorter person n it is really hurting me badly!!! So he said cut n do wut I must or I'd rather u take it off n put the other one on bcuz I don't want something to happen. So w that being said as soon as I got off the phone I asked my daughter to help me take it off. Omg we struggled n struggled n struggled so much that we both worked up a sweat n almost cut it off!! It waste mission impossible!!! Finally w all my force n daughter we finally got it down squeezing the heck out if my butt!!! This didn't feel good n made me wonder if I should of just cut it off! Did I kill my fat cells?? It was worse than sitting I think!

Yesterday I went in to see him n I told him wut I went thru n he was like wow! I said well I'm just amazed on how Celia was able to pretty much get it on by herself!! She's super strong!!! Rami was in amazement, bcuz he was struggling putting on my 2xl garment! Lol!

Ok ladies I HVE to get ready for massage today I will post again later;) xoxo

You look great!! Even w/o the garment!!! Has most of the swelling gone down?

Well I would say in the butt it doesn't feel has hard n smooshed or red n purple but my thighs n legs r looking pretty horrible!!! So so swollen!!!
Wow... I like the outcome of your booty. I've also read that having the garment too tight is not good. He seems like a real sweetheart. I mean for him to call u to see how you're doing. I'm glad you're doing good. Yes Celia is very strong.

Hello ladies sorry that I haven't updated u all in...

Hello ladies sorry that I haven't updated u all in my progress . I've been doing very well as far as healing n feeling no pain for past couple of days;)

I'm still in a 2x garment but by Monday I will try my L garment :) Dr rami is very cautious w his patients n says no matter wut my waist will go down . He is very impressed w my tummy. Says its retracting better than he anticipated. Remember he said I may need a tummy tuck . Now he is having second thoughts;) he is happy about that.

Ok so lets talk taking out drains. Back drain didn't feel much just a tiny pinch.

Front drain it was a little different it hurt a tad bit but also felt weird as I felt the tube going from left side of lower tummy to right as he took it out. I was so relieved he took it out bcuz I didn't think he was going to. I thought I had to travel back w it on.

Celia said I have a very projected Booty;) she said she loves how it came out! That put a smile on my face n I told her thank u! She is really good at her job n I also like her personality;) I think she opened up a Lil more once I started speaking to her in Spanish. Eileen or not sure how she spells her name came to me yesterday bcuz there was a mix up n they didn't HVE me scheduled when I went in! So she also did a great job;) she had to do my tummy standing up bcuz I didn't HVE a boppy, it wasn't too bad.

My overall experience w dr. N staff have been absolutely wonderful! I Luv the way they made feel! Like if I was a part of their family! Pain wise I can't say I would do it again hands down. First couple of days were a 9 on scale, maybe even 10 when I felt like throwing up! Once again I never took any percocets or nausea meds. Perhaps that's y I rate it a Lil higher in pain. I'm a strong person n can handle pain though but I'm admitting those first two days were hard.

Now just packing n getting ready to go home n see my babies;)))) u miss them all!

Glad u made it home safe. God I miss my home state so much. My knees all the way down to my feet were so freakin swollen they looked like they were seriously going to explode. Keep us updated babe. I can't wait til next Thursday... finally will be 6 weeks for me. Seems like it was just yesterday I got the surgery. Do u think he was aggressive with lipo? I need to call on Monday to see about my tt. I want it done in July 2014. It's a long time but still... I can wait, I have to wait a yr anyways due to swelling from lipo. Happy Healing.

I'm truly sorry that I have not posted enough pics...

I'm truly sorry that I have not posted enough pics n especially of my tummy, truth is every time I see n feel my tummy it gives me the Hibbie Jibbies! Lol.... I may of looked like I didn't Have many stretch marks but after Lipo it looks like I got attacked by a wild panther! My vajayay is wrinkly n swollen n lumpy!!! Not a pretty sight!!! Not even for me to look at!!!! I only had 3 massages in aventura n yes they hurt the first 2 but my last one felt great!! I wish w all my heart I could of brought Celia w me!!! Lol she's amazingly good!!! She knows her stuff!!! I can't find a massage therapist where I live that seems to kno wut I need! I had a massage yesterday n she was so gentle that my skin did not even feel her!!!! So I feel my waist isnt shrinking like it should bcuz u need those massages to lose the swelling n get those tissues connected along w releasing toxins. It comes out thru our pee, n poop.

I'm sorry to disappoint those of u who r looking to see better pics of me! I can't find the time to dress up or just to take pics when all the kiddies r sick.

Measurements as of today

Waist is 34
Booty 46 1/2

I kno my waist would b smaller if I would Have the right massages n most of all if I could went down in garment size faster sooner. But it killed the hell out of my crack!! Lol!!

My swelling is finally going down on my knees n legs!!! Yay !! N thank u Lord Jesus!!! That was really starting to freak me out!!!

I'm in a L and on second latch n w foam;)

Is there a time limit w need to b in each garment? How long b4 the next size down?

Thank u all for ur support especially those of u who r constantly texting me n praying n who seem to care about me not just results ! Thank u!!! Will try to post better pics soon!!!

Thank u Hunnie!! Ur too kind! If I get the nerve I will post the pics of ugly lower tummy after lipo.... I'm very happy w my Body just waiting to heal! Dr did warn me that I may need a TT but I preferred staying w a Lil pooch.

I just measured again n I'm a Lil sad but I kno...

I just measured again n I'm a Lil sad but I kno I'm actually losing the booty but the swelling is going down. Down an inch which I'm at 45 1/2 .... Although I did not add hips so Idk if this changes much or not as far as the booty. I also took measurements of the top of my butt cheek to bottom n then from left side of butt cheek to right so I kno as far of wut I consider to b my Booty not hips....

Top to bottom butt cheek 131/2 " both sides

Left to right 26"

I have always done this ..,, lol.... Bcuz sometimes our lower tummy n hips r includes in butt size but I want to kno wut my butt actually is not just good n lower tummy!

Anyway I found a great masseuse' yay! But let me say I woke up extremely sore!! Last night I kept waking up even more stiff than first couple of days :( so I had to take Advil n I felt so much better;) weight wise I'm about 5 or 6 lbs heavier.

Only two things I'm unhappy with n it's not bcuz of dr..... The look of my tummy bcuz there r even more stretch marks than I recall! Lol!!! I guess since the area is smaller the stretch marks r more noticeable;( but lets see how the healing process continues.....

Second thing is my upper body... Some of us latina's Have big arms or broad shoulders... So I guess once I'm able I will work the upper n lower body!!

I think that's about it for now:)

Hi ladies;) let me just say that at times it can b frustrating at night getting a good night's sleep:( I can b in a deep sleep, when suddenly I'm awaken by the pain n stiffness in my back! It's like clock work. Every two hrs I wake up stiff I do my push up then do yoga stretches by slightly having hands down or like on all 4's but hands a Lil in front then stretching booty back as is ur trying to touch ur butt w ur feet then put ur face down as if ur going to dive for apples in a slant forward straight in front of u doing a slight push up n lifting ur head back so ur tummy is almost touching the floor or bed n ur trying to point the top of ur head towards ur feet. Then I get on my knees n stretch from side to side w left arm over my head reaching to right side then do same w other side. Then I get off the bed n start walking. As I'm walking I do stretched w my arms in circular motions or as if I'm lifting weights I do a Lil squat just to stretch not actually squatting. My walk will last from 10 to 15 min depending on how stiff I feel.

Girls it sometimes becomes overwhelming, bcuz a couple of times I have been hd asleep bumping in to things until I realize omg I can't believe I'm going thru this! Oh n today I was so sleepy still that when I got up to go per which is also every time I get up (every 2 hrs) I dropped my pee bottle in the toilet !! Lol!! ..... Ya wut a way to wake up n snap out of it right?

In the morning around 5:30 I tend to just stay up bcuz kids get up between 5:45 n 6 am, so get them up then I will make a cup of warm water w squeezed lemon... Or Add honey too ... Unbelievable benefits!!! Plz look it up;)

Along w the vitamins we have read on here to take I also take magnesium, biotin, primrose oil, borage oil, msm, and psyllium husk.... All of these help our bodies. Idk if any of u have noticed hair loss. The anesthesia causes so many side affects n hair loss is one of them. I was shedding like a dog right after SX biotin n B complex helps that along w skin nails bones brain nerves..... If u HVE time plz look up each mineral n vitamin I HVE listed n see how they help our bodies;)

Other than my new sleeping habits n not being able sit oh n the new way of peeing in a bottle, I'm healing nicely n feeling pretty Good! In my opinion going the healthier way has helped speed up healing process.... Oh I already feel my Booty softer in certain areas and even a Lil jiggle;)

I forgot to add my measurements:

Waist is now 31 1/2

Hips n Booty 46

The other day I measured n hips were 45 1/2 n today 46 so not sure wut happened there.... But I'm ok w that! Lol ....

Swelling continues to go down but like Dr Ghurani told me, he put 1400cc's in each cheek so I won't HVE much loss:) lets pray this stays!!!! Once again I didn't add hips bcuz I have my own n I was trying to regain my original shape, in order not to make it look too obvious. Although I'm sure my waist line would look tiny if I would of added hips:)

I haven't really gone anywhere to notice if anyone checks me out, lol.... But

Hi My BBL SISTERS;)

Just wanted to update u on how I'm healing. I have noticed that my Booty is jiggling as I walk;) I wasn't expecting that to happen so soon. Idk when ur booty starts to soften up but the top n around the booty r softening. I want it to soften but I hope it doesn't get wobbly if u kno wut I mean. I walk every 2-3 hrs about 10 min... Especially at night when I wake up stiff n feeling like some heavy person is sitting on the end of my back! Ugh! This truly can b very bothersome! Anyhow I walk n after about 4 min u can feel the tension n stiffness ease off n then ur walking normal again;) as sleepy as I may b I continue to walk until I hit 10 min n I go back to bed.

Ladies my arms r starting to tone up! Yay!! All the push ups from laying down on my tummy is starting to benefit my biceps;) lol!!

The Booty is still holding on to 46"
Waist is down to 30 1/2

Waiting to get my cincher to get this waist down! I'm really praying the booty stays at this measurement!!

My tummy is looking sooo much better! I will b posting b4 n now pics on Wednesday which will b my 3 wk post op anniversary....

I'm taking all my vitamins n I'm putting on the heating throw at least 2x a day n I'm massaging myself when I take my garment off w vitamin E oil/aloe Vera n it seems to b leaving my skin soft n alive! The color of my skin on my tummy is going back to normal;) after SX it was looking very dark. Like purplish red n dark tones.... Swelling on vajayay has gone down extremely, bcuz it was looking very abnormal!!!! I was very worried w the huge lumps on upper pubic area O__O !!!

My diet chicken, beef, eggs, yogurt, fruit, veggies, n a snack here n there..... Meaning ice cream or oatmeal cookie peanut butter..... Very limited on snacks.... Lots n lots of water!! I'm big on water! Oh n my warm water w fresh squeezed lemon in the morning on empty stomach:)

I'm no spring chicken so I think I'm healing pretty fast n nicely considering I'm 41!

If u HVE any questions feel free to Ask me;)) God Bless u Always!

Thanks for sharing your story hun... As far as your husband goes don't take it personal, he's just probably scared that you'll leave him or something. Reassure him that you love him and that booty is all his.

Hey, you look amazing, beautiful smooth curves! I have been thinking of going to Dr Salama for a while but I think now I will go to Dr Ghurani. I am super impressed with your shape. Thank you for al the wonderful info - I too am a fan of lemon juice and water!!!! I have been trying to get on Dr G's website and it is down. Also he used to work in EPS and has now moved. Can you tell me about his work place please? I am travelling from Ireland so trying to work out what the USA is like. Thanks again for all the valuable info and I hope you are doing very well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xx
