9 months post op Dr Salama NEW PICS - Aventura, FL

I have been very unhappy with my body since high school. I have a large chest and no butt! lol I want to be more proportioned and i also want a more attractively shaped butt thats juicy and round. I absolutely hate my back and flanks I want them gone.

I have read tons of reviews on here and honestly this site is what pushed me over the edge and made me call and put down my deposit so thank you! I am so excited I just feel like the surgery is so far away. I hope that time flies!

Ok so my original date was for july but I'm so...

ok so my original date was for july but I'm so anxious i moved it up to june 12th .. lol and thats the earliest they had.. so now i have 3 months to loose some extra weight. I'm so excited!! Oh and I'm 5'3 154lbs .. i didn't say that before. =)

Hello ladies! well i have been reading a lot of...

Hello ladies! well i have been reading a lot of reviews and one in particular stood out to me .. about arms lol i dont want garilla arms (which i kind of alaready have) so i added liposuction of my arms to the list .. im am still scheduled for june 12th 2012 and hopefully the recovery will go smoothly ..

Omg ladies 6 weeks to go!! :D I had to book 2...

Omg ladies 6 weeks to go!! :D I had to book 2 nights at a hotel close to the surgery center because palm beach is too far =[ and Dr Salama wants us as close as possible for the first 2 days.. Soo I booked 2 nights at Courtyard Marriott yesterday.. I have not lost any weight :/ lol I've been so busy working but today I plan on starting my diet and work out regimen! Anyways I'm holding off until the last minute to put up my before pics lol I'm hoping I can get in shape so you won't have to see me in my current state I will also put up my measurements at that time.. Any who I'm so excited!! :D

OK ladies i am 14 days away from the big day .. i...

OK ladies i am 14 days away from the big day .. i cannot believe it .. i decided it was probably time to put up my before pics.. I am so ready for this after really seeing myself .. i did all of my pre op clearance stuff and i will stop taking my birth control tomorrow .. i need someone to help me with my measurements i don't know where to measure lol so after i get all that done ill post it .. i have also been reading about Dr Salama not finishing certain spots or missing bra lines .. i am deff going to make it business to let him know that that is what I'm most uncomfortable with and hopefully he does all my spots (arms[extra $400 ], FULL back, FULL stomach / flanks and inner thighs) I really want him to put 900-1000 CCs in each cheek

thanks for reading =]

Ok ladies I am 1 day post op and let me just say...

Ok ladies I am 1 day post op and let me just say without the Percocet idk what I would do.. I was 1st surgery of the day I cried like a baby when they were putting me to sleep lol but everyone was so nice including dr Salama he was really cool and funny but I guess that's because I went in there humble and ask him my questions rather than demand what I wanted needless to say I don't know how many ccs yet and my but is huge and I'm brused and swollen I kind of hope it doesn't go down too much I like it the
Way it is but I know it will.. Oh and I freaked out in the recovery room I was trying to get up and leave but I could not move which freaked me out even more apparently I was screaming and acting a fool =\ oh and I'm staying at the courtyard Marriott nice clean. my dad has been driving me around let just sat I hate being in the van it makes me sick oh and eat heavy hearty food! Made me feel so much better I didn't get much sleep and neither did my mom =\ peeing in the little coffee cups they provide in the room is the best bet I have not peed on my garment yet using this method .. I have been draining like crazy I think it's because I had 2 lymphatic massages before surgery during the week ladies if u can do it I suggest you do .. Anyways that's it for now I'm going to try and upload pics if it doesn't work I'll do it later

Thanks for reading

Ok I just left the office I got my garment changed .. I really don't like the new garment it will deff be hell trying to pee in this new garnet the hole is different. I am so sore make sure to eat and take Percocet before going to this appt I felt really weak .. Nrouille was a bit rough I asked her to be gentle and she's pretty much like I have to get the garment up not very sympathetic.. Other than that it was alright.. 1st massage tomorrow and I will post pics I swear lol

ok so i started taking antibiotics on day 2 and seriously i have been having the worst diarrhea since then. it is a pain in the ass literally! i have to rush and take off the garment which is not easy and my mom has to help me its really bad. maybe its just me i don't know if anyone else is having the same problems but is so how do i fix it? i obi cannot stop taking the antibiotics =/ it all really sucks.

on a different note i got my 1st massage today. i don't remember her name but she came to my room and it was painful i cried like a baby again but i drained a lot.

my skin feels gross on my stomach and yes i have been wearing the tshirt under garment i hope it gets better fast. ok ladies thats it for now ill update again later my butt is huge btw.. the pics don't do it justice at all

Ok so yesterday was day 3 it was pretty good I...

Ok so yesterday was day 3 it was pretty good I felt good was up and about walking around .. Today (day4) I'm hating everything I hate the meds they make me shit .. I hate the drains they hurt and complicate my shitting .. I hate that I have been laying on my stomach for 4 effing days and my jaws and neck are killing me I of corse broke down in a crying fit this morning when I realized my knuckles where raw from me using them to pick my self up off the bed and put myself down .. I am currently lying face down again but with my garment off because I wanted it washed .. I wasn't liking how it smelled my mom says its just me but I swear I'm getting a yeast infection >=[ ughhaghhhh! And just a heads up buy 2 of the 2nd type of garments (the 1 with the zipper) so when ones washing you can put the other one on. I'm in pain my butt doesn't like being out of the garment .. I have also been experiencing shooting pains in my stomach sides and butt I d k y and I hate it .. At this point to be really honest I wish I didn't do it.. I was feeling great before and I didn't look so bad but this experience is wearing on me and my family I feel like the worse daughter in the world =[ my mom is in so much pain from trying to pull me up to use the bathroom and walk around I think her back is out and my sister and cousins are my "gofurs" I don't like that everyone is annoyed with me .. I know I sound like a Whinney bitch and no one made me do this but in just being honest with y'all .. I keep telling myself that all these other girls that are 4 weeks post op and 8 weeks post op did it so u can too.. Then I mentally slap myself and say get your shit together .. but it's not cutting it anymore.. I'm supposed to get my 2nd massage today (yay! -_-) ill tell yall how that goes ..well that's it for now updating naked and miserable from the bed dani b over and out ..

On my way to get my drains taken out! Yessss!!!...

On my way to get my drains taken out! Yessss!!! I'll let you ladies know how that is.. I also feel a lot Better since my last post today's my last day on antibiotics :D and no more random diarrhea =]

Hello! i am feeling great i started driving today...

hello! i am feeling great i started driving today to get ready to go back to work.. don't worry i used my boppy pillow and a throw pillow for my back.. everything is coming together .. saw dr salama today he said i have no fluid buildup and everything looks fine he says that i will only get smaller form here. i am still very much swollen on my back stomach butt and thighs .. i have been wearing my garment but i take it off for 2 hours everyday .. i am very happy with my results i know its not perfect but I'm a much better version of myself! i am 100% grateful that i had no complications.. 1 of my cheeks is a slight bit bigger than the other but I'm sure it will all even out after swelling goes all the way down.. i took these pics a few days ago .. ill keep posting =]

p.s. sorry about the pic quality I'm using my phone and the front cam isn't as good as the back 1 .. but u get the general idea lol

Hello everyone i am 50 days post op a little over...

hello everyone i am 50 days post op a little over seven weeks post op.. i have been working and getting ready for school .. i rarely come on rs anymore.. with that being said after this i doubt ill be posting for a while .. i get random shooting pain in my mid section .. i have scar tissue on the left side of my stomach .. my back is still swollen and i will be starting ultrasound therapy to try and soften the scar tissue. like everyone else i do wish i would have gone bigger.. i got 1100 ccs in each cheek and yes you butt shrinks .. id say go as big as you can get it .. i however will NOT be doing a round 2.. the pain and the stress on my family wasn't worth it the 1st time and wouldn't be the 2nd .. don't get me wrong .. i am much happier with myself it just took 7 weeks to feel that way. and i am not perfect my left cheek is great but my right is a bit deformed due to the garment .. make sure if it isn't fitting right to cut your butt out so it doesnt mess anything up.. i took these new pics my self and what i post is all I'm posting for now i cannot capture what i really look like with my iPhone and quite frankly no ones asses look as good or bad as they do on this site in person so everyone stressing to see pictures relax.. i get that we want to get the general idea of what the docs work looks like but honestly we don't end up looking like our wish pics or any of the women on this site so whats the point? and I'm tired of people inboxing me to update.. i don't mean to sound like a bitch but I'm being honest .. i have met only 3 ppl on this site that are genuine and actually cared about me being ok not just getting pics put up.. i have also had women inbox me and ask me questions i have no prob with that ill respond quickly and try to help the best i can with what u need to know like what to bring or what its like etc.. what ever it is if i can answer i will but please do not write me asking for pics that shit is annoying ..

dr salama is a good dr i do not regret anything and over all i look better than i did before i am grateful i had no complications and i wish the same for the ladies who will be doing this procedure .. it is not easy! go in with REALISTIC expectations for you body type!! .. drives me insane when i see before and after pics and the girl is bad mouthing the doc because she thought she would look like kim k when she started out looking like precious .. be realistic people .. again i don't mean to sound like a bitch .. i thank everyone for reading my posts.. i hope i helped .. OH AND ABOUT THE ARMS! I PERSONALLY DO NOT SEE A DIFFERENCE, IT WAS NOT WORTH IT FOR ME .. I WISH I WOULD HAVE DONE MY CHIN INSTEAD .. IJS

P.S.S. i did not wear my garment the way i was...

P.S.S. i did not wear my garment the way i was supposed to.. they cost 100 each and i refused to buy a smaller size because my butt couldn't and wouldn't fit and it would have caused further damage .. i stopped wearing it about 2 weeks ago..

Unfortunately i did not take before measurements...

unfortunately i did not take before measurements but my current measurements are 36 28 42

Been going to ultra sound therapy for scar tissue its sort of working i just have to continue to go.. Measurements are still 36DD 28 42 I'm sure that I'm done shrinking at this point i just have to lose weight the old fashioned way now..

Dr Salama and staff have been great so glad I chose him. He is very realistic and friendly so is Ruben and all the other staff. I also appreciated how the payment process went I payed out of pocket and they did not ever call me about payments or stress me out which was nice. I would pick Salama and his team a million times over.
