Ok Girlas!!! Well I went to my consultation today....

Ok Girlas!!! Well I went to my consultation today. Got to dr Salamas office at 12:30 pm. Sign all the paperwork that is to sign. Then was called inside. Changed into my paper dress, like 5 minutes later Dr Salama came in. Asked me what I wanted, he gave me his professional opinion. I have read so much here of how serious he is and everything else, ladies this is not true at all. He is super professional and who wants to be joking around when you're talking about plastic surgery ? Answer all our questions And went through any possible complication that could happen. Then the important question: do you want a big butt??? I said yes. Met Nancy, beautiful lady, very pretty and nice. Helped me finalize everything. I am contemplating doing chin lipo too, will think about it tonight. Ladies this dr is very professional and his staff too. Don't believe about his serious character because it is not true al all, this is not my first plastic surgery and I wanted to be with the best and I am super excited for this and very sure I made the right choice.

Oh ladies surgery is tomorrow at 1:30 pm. Got pill from dr so I can sleep good tonight, hubby went to get arnica gel because I haven't been able to find it nowhere, but we called a publix and they had it. Dr also gave me arnica pills. Got pads for the bed too so it doesnt get bloody with the leaks of the drains. I am praying to God everything goes well please have me in your prayers.

Hello ladies!! I made it to the other side!! First night was rough. Without my husband I'm not sure what I would've done. Woke up and got the news 1500 ccs!! Omg my butt is huge!! I will post pictures in a couple days when I'm less bloody and swollen. Wash garment today because it is impossible to keep it clean when using the bathroom, I did my chin too and really see the difference already. Also did my arms and inner thighs too. My next appointment is Sunday and Monday the first massage. Very afraid of it, everyone says that is very painful. I want to thank you guys for your prayers and for keeping me in your thoughts. We met a very nice couple at the Dr office, we wish we met you guys before. Ladies Dr Salama work is amazing I am very pleased with my results already. And also ladies keep your meds on time. Take them before it's time. This pain is no joke. I will keep you guys updated. Will take some rest now. Talk to you guys later. Good night.

Ok ladies here I added 2 pics with the garment on.

Hello beautiful ladies!!! I made it through my first massage today. Took warm shower first, then took 2 pain killers and headed to the dr office, Celia God Bless her hands, massage was a little uncomfortable, but very needed. I was super relieved at the end of it. And also Celia made me feel very comfortable too. She is awesome. Ladies you need these massages. Have next appointment for wednesday to see dr and for next massage. Thank you all for your prayers and best wishes i really appreciate it. Talk to you guys in a little bit.

Hello ladies!!! Im back. This have been harder...

Hello ladies!!! Im back. This have been harder than I thought, i have been in so much pain. Last night we left Aventura for our 4 hour drive home, not easy at all, I didn’t wanted to sit and I didn’t and this made it harder and more difficult, my feet got so swollen that I could not see my ankles. I don’t know how we made it. But we did. I am so happy were home. But I haven’t been able to do nothing at all. Cant pick up my babies or do nothing in the house, if it wasn’t for my husband I don’t know what I would do. I have noticed that if you stretch you actually feel better, thanks to my girl August 2012, she told me this. Im in so much pain and stiffness in my body still. Im now 9 days post op today. I have had other procedures and none have been this hard, I am serious, maybe is only me. I know everyone is different. I got my 3rd massage with Celia yesterday before we left, she is a sweetheart, massage still very painful, actually I learn yesterday that they get more and more painful because of the internal scarring, I didn’t know that. So not looking forward for the next 7 massages at home, found this person that comes to your house for $65.00 per massage, lymphatic and deep tissue, we will see on Monday how that goes. I want to let you ladies know that are coming to Aventura, DO NOT STAY AT THE BEST WESTERN HOTEL IN HALLENDALE BEACH, NOT GOOD. I am super happy with my 1500 ccs I got. Love my new body. I am very tired all the time, but I know this is part of cosmetic surgery and just need to be patient. I have an issue, when I was the last day at Dr Salama office everyone there said I needed to change into smaller garment, well got the large one, but it is too small, it is very tight, but the part im worried is that it might be too tight in the butt? Please if some of you ladies have gone through this let me know. I was thinking to have the xl garment bring it to seamstress and put it smaller and leave butt big. I don’t want to squeeze my big butt lol. I haven’t noticed my booty shrinking yet, probably too soon. I cant explain how happy I am with my results and with my choice of surgean, I think Dr. Salama is the best and his staff too. Everyone in there is excellent I kind of fell sad when I left. Aww I know. I will be updating a little bit later with new pics. Talk to you girls later!!

Hi ladies, well im 2 weeks today, haven’t...

Hi ladies, well im 2 weeks today, haven’t noticed any loss in volume, except for the swelling. I haven’t sat down at all after surgery except to use the bathroom. I LOVE my results I am so happy I did this and that I chose Salama. I will be posting pictures later today.

Oh and by the way, i took my xl garment to a seamstress to take off the waist and legs, the large garment was too tight on my booty and we didnt want this, so now my big booty fits perfect on the garment and my little waist fits the large, will take it again next week to put it like a medium because i can alrady see the creases in the back, the dr told me when i see this, it means that garment is too big and need to be changed.

Hello beautiful ladies, I am on my 8th week now. I...

Hello beautiful ladies, I am on my 8th week now. I almost back to normal, my body still very sore and my stomach still have lumps. I'm still doing massages and I will start ultrasound very soon. I am still loving my results. I will post some new pics that I took today. Still wearing my garment and sitting in the boppy at work. Let me say that this has been the hardest recovery I had in my life. I had a boob reduction and that was a walk in the park compare to this. The lipo is the worst. But do wonders. So all the pain is worth it. Dr Salama rocks! Talk to you guys later.

At 8 weeks my measurements are waist 29 butt 44

do you have to remove your nails or not wear nail polish for the actual surgery. I know for major surgery they ask u to be au natural but im not sure the process for cosmetic procedures?
  • Reply
No, i had my acrylic nails with polish on. They dont ask you to remove that. The only thing you cannot wear is makeup or jewelry. The jewelry will cause burns with the lipo on your body, so make sure you dont have nothing. Also dont use deodorant.

hey hunn howre u? are u getting massages, if yes how painful have the lymphatic massages been?
  • Reply
Hi! Yes Im getting massages, only need 5. And only on the sides. Theyre not that bad as painful.
  • Reply
Oh ok, thanks for sharing hunn. Where are u getting the massages?
  • Reply
Well for the tummy tuck the massages are only on the side/ waist. And you will need only 5. After 2 weeks of the surgery. My husband do them for me. Its not like the bbl that are intense massages.
  • Reply
Oh i think i forgot to tell you. Buy arnica gel. This is for the muscle pain, stiffness, swelling, and bruising. It works wonders. And you can use it to do the massages. Thats what i use. I hope this helps.

Hi MariaMariaa ( like the Ricky Martin song) no arnica pills, just iron and vitamin c 45 days before the surgery.

Also wanted to tell you that you have to use after the surgery a gel to diminish the scar, even though the scar he does is increíble. 3 different doctors have seen it and have told me that they have never seen a better scar after a tummy tuck. Anyway the gel has to be 100% silicone. I found one that is called scar away and Its incredible. They also well the strips to put on the scar. Im writing as i remember stuff.

I will post pictures as soon as i can. I am very swollen still. But i was trying clothes on tonight and is very exciting. They fit incredible. Will be going to Miami soon for a follow up appointment. Dont be nervous. Youre going to look Awesome.

You've been awesome, thanks for all the info. I ordered the scar away silicone strips a week ago, when can I start to use them? 3 weeks post? Great re the pics and the clothing. How many weeks post-op are u?
  • Reply
I will be one month on the 19th. I will start the scar away today. I didnt got the strips But will do asap.It really works.
