The countdown begins! I scheduled a BBL and breast implant exchange for April 24th with Dr. Salama. I've always been a fan of curvy figures and can't wait to have one of my own. I'm 5'6 and 150lbs, so I'm far from being a stick, but I want all of my curves in the right places.
I'm definitely hoping for the biggest butt my doctor can give me! Based off of my pictures, the quote I was given was 600-700cc to graft to my butt, but I'm hoping for at least 1000cc. Ruben suggested that I could gain a few lbs to get the results I wanted, but I really find it hard to believe I wouldn't have enough fat already. Hopefully when I have my in person consultation they will say they can do 1000cc+!
I already have 350cc moderate plus silicone breast implants that I got in 2008 and I'm hoping to go up to 500cc or 600cc. I'm still undecided because I'm not as concerned with having really big boobs as I am just wanting more cleavage. I'm hoping larger implants will cover more of my chest and give me the results I want. I'm leaning towards 600cc since almost everyone I know who has had a BA wishes they went bigger. I'm not unhappy enough with my breast implants to schedule a surgery for that alone, but I figured I might as well do it since I want a BBL.
Since I'm from out of town I'll be flying to Florida and having my consultation on the 23rd. I'm planning on staying in a hotel for about a week following the surgery. The flight is 2 or 3 hours and I'm not sure how that's going to be, but hopefully I can find someone else who has flown after BBL to give me advice!
I have a desk job, but I'm going to convert my desk to a standing position so I can stand most of the day when I return to work. I'll be sure to post pictures and measurements before and after! My boyfriend is going to be with me after surgery, even though he really doesn't like that I'm going through with it. I know he loves me the way I am, but I think he'll be happy with the results in the end :) If anyone reads this and is going to be having the surgery around the same time, let me know and we can be BBL buddies!

I've unintentionally gained 15lbs (all of my pictures reflect this gain) and I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing. I really don't want to have this surgery just to be where I was before the 15lbs. On the one hand, I do want a lot of fat available for transfer, but only so much can be taken out and I should have plenty already! I'm trying to watch what I eat and lose at least 10lbs.
Took my measurements today at 39-31-42.5

My surgery is at 8am Tuesday and I'll have a pre-op with Dr. Salama on Monday. I'll be flying in that morning. I'm going shopping this weekend for everything I'll need and I did manage to find one long skirt that I can wear out until I have the drains removed. For the flight home I just plan to wear a dress with leggings. I'm SO excited!!
Wow I can't believe it....I'm packing today and...

I haven't had my surgery yet so my ratings are based on my experience so far. Dr. Salama offers a price that cannot be beat AND he consistently creates outstanding results! His office administrator, Ruben, has been extremely helpful, friendly, and patient with all of my questions prior to scheduling my surgery. I contacted 4 surgeons prior to scheduling and most of my communication was by email because I did not want others to hear me discussing my surgery on the phone. Dr. Salama's office is the ONLY one who responded to my emails every single day. While I understand that most practices are busy and I'm sure Dr. Salama's office is no exception, I truly appreciate the fact that Ruben made sure to keep in touch and always let me know he was available to answer my questions. I'm expecting a patient information package in the mail soon and Ruben has encouraged me to keep in touch with any questions I may have.
