Hey ladies, so I carefully reviewed doctors and went to multiple consultations and even when I thought I found the right Doctor, I ended up losing $2000 and joining the Dr Salama team! Have not had the procedure yet I am scheduled for jan 30 2014 so excited, I am going to document the pre and postop
Yay! Team Salama I'm Feb 7th so excited

Wow!!!! I bet you're super excited! I saw your blog and pics....He's going to do a fabulous job on you..can't wait to see. I wish that I'd found the RS site sooner..I would have scheduled my surgery with a RS sister like you..would have shared a condo. Well we can keep in touch...I'd love to check in on you! I will be in town on the 3rd of Jan..just to do some shopping and enjoy Miami before my big day. PM me...maybe we can exchange info. Good luck sis on your surgery...are you going by yourself? I heard the recovery house is well worth the money spent. Have you found someone to do your lymphatic massages yet?

Canceled and switched

Hey ladies I was scheduled for surgery in 3 weeks and cancelled because I read some terrifying things about Salama, I have now switched to dr rami ghurani and let me tell you what hell I went through to switch this at last minute, I will be having surgery in the beginning of feb and I am scared shitless but so blessed god put this situation in front of me so I could switch I did ALOT of praying on this and I believe he has answered my prayers

Switched to Dr Rami ghurani

This is a roller coaster of emotions and stress especially 3 weeks before surgery, switched doctors 4 times!

Pre op

I'm 21 years old 5'4 and weigh 140 still need to gain some weight posting pics soon
I bet you're anxious!!! I'm 1wk post op. Salama did a heck of a job! I'll be here cheering you on!

Yay!!! I'm so happy for you!

3 weeks pre op

So elite told me it would be a good idea to get my wisdom teeth out, to not have infection the day of surgery, and let me tell you how happy I am that I did this, I have never been under anesthesia before, and I'm glad I did earlier instead of the day of sx. I got so so sick from the anesthesia, like threw up about 30 times even with them putting nausea medication the same time as the anesthesia, what helped anyone else???

Scared and nervous

2 more weeks ladies, and let me tell you this is all I can think about day and night, what helped you ladies calm down?? praying has been helping me a lot of course, but I just keeping thinking of the worst possible thing that can happen, any advice??
Positive thoughts only. If have faith in God then there should be no worries and thats having faith... You will do just fine we are cheering you on all the way. Many Blessings coming your way :)

Whose in town?

Would really like to meet up with some ladies during my stay in aventura! I will be at the recovery house from feb 4 - feb 15 let me know and send me a message with your phone number, good luck and prayers to all my bbl sisters! Much love
Welcome to team Ghurani doll! I'm sure you're going to look great! Eat a lot of fast food, cookies, cake, ice cream, fried chicken, white bread, corn bread, potatoes you name it. I'm sure you'll be able to put on at least 3 to 5 more pounds in that amount of time. Eat late, like past 8. I'll be praying for you and following your journey.

So upset and disappointed

I went into this 146lbs and the dr only gave me 770ccs!? I paid all cash and Now I feel like this was a waste of time and money I'm so sad and so disappointed I should've never switched from salama
You look great..I think ghurani is more modest when it comes to cc's..but it's possible that your skin didn't stretch enough to allow more fat? Definitely ask him how come only 770
Reply
Your waist looks amazing. He did a really good job on you....congrats on you sx!!
Reply
Don't be upset hun, too many sisters get caught up on the number of Ccs what we have to understand is they can only put in as many cc's as your skin will take you can want 1500 cc's but if your skin only take 750 that's all he can put in anything other than that is just going to die in be wasted fat so I tell sister is just tell the doctor to put in the max that your body will take and that's all they can do their only 30 Ps they can't work miracles, did you ask him how many cc's he was able to take out? you actually look really good the emotions that you are going through right now are all part of PTSD our emotions are everywhere right after surgery because this really is a traumatic event to our bodies keep your head up stay positive work on healing and deal with the rest later

Ladies, 5 days post op

Well this process in the beginning was complete pure hell physically and emotionally this is going to be a longgg review now that i am feeling well, day of my surgery went great until the second i entered the recovery house. I have been through what it feels like Hell and back. I was mistaken by the care taker, the first hour she was great and then my life changed 360... let me tell you ladies i was the only one in the house with this woman for 3 days... let me start off by saying this woman was so damn cheap that i slept in a puddle of my own blood and the smell of anesthesia for 2 days! she hanged my sheets and padding maybe twice and with this procedure you know its a ton of blood, i was throwing up for 3 days straight and she told me i need to try and make it to the bathroom?! that she didnt wanna keep changing the trash? are you f ing kidding me?! i paid almost $2 gs for this house and this bitch cant give me a new gauze on my bed because theyre running out?! it gets better... she washed the plastic bag i had BEEN throwing up in and told me to take the same "walmart" bag in the car with justin for my appointment... you are so self centered and lazy that you cant find me a new plastic bag to throw up in????? not only am i dealing with this witch, she keeps telling me how small my butt is and all the other girls that come in here having juicy salama butts... how the hell is that supposed to make me feel? i was out of touch with my family because on top of all of this i caught a nasty nasty bug.. the saddest part to me was she had the audacity to PRAY with me from a woman of god to another woman of god and then treat me like this?! anyways... im only going to tell one more story which appalled me, on her last day mind you im the only one in the house, i asked her from a loving voice can you just check on me every 20 min to see if im at least breathing and she told me i got things i have to do....... what a low life centered disgusting human i had to bare with... on thursday she left and i was going to leave because of the shock and traumatization i have been through and Irene walks in and i was just crying to her and explaining what was going on cause i thought it was normal and she truly truly saved my life inside out.... now healing wise ladies i just got better today DR. ghurani was on the phone with me 24/7 answering all my questions and needs, i almost got admitted to the er by myself today because i couldnt move i was having nightmares of me dying couldnt breath heart racing everything and he prescribed me something for stress and im just taking motrin for pain and what a 360 i went through, he is truly amazing with his patients and care i was calling him at all hours and not once did he not return my call he is amazing, i still want my booty bigger, but im going to let it fluff and see how everything goes, as for massage, went in on absolutely NO pain meds and it was not that bad, forgot the motrin because i had to get off the oxycodones, but the office and celia are really great and attentive they took care of the house situation right away and i really couldnt be happier.
I am so sorry that this happened to you..how unprofessional! As soon as would have regained my strength i would have given her more than a piece of my mind...Girl you dont do or same those times of things to someone who is trying to recover from a procedure..I will be staying at the RH as well and I pray they fire her ass before i get there because I wont be able to deal I promise...But you nevermind ignorant people honey..you need to focus on healing

You look great girl. I stayed at the recovery house just a couple weeks before you did and though I had a great experience with Liz and Grace fior care another caretaker did not do her job n was fired immediately. I appreciated that they took our complaints immediately and seriorsly and corrected the problem. So were there other girls there after 3 days? There were lots of girls when i stayed which actually mafe it funner and we were supportive to eachother. Sux to be alone like that. Im sorry your experience was not as positive. I really am. Your results look pretty good though babe ghurini is more subtle with results while salama is very dramatic so it just depends on what you want. I think your new booty suits you. I hope u get better n glad u are heeling well

I think you look great;) im sorry you were hoping for a bigger result but you really look good:)

Always keeping track of meds... Feeling good, praise God
Wow that woman was a complete nightmare, I feel so bad you had to endure that more so while trying to recover. Horrible May God have mercy on her trifling self. Looking at your pics you look awesome.

I am really sorry you had to endure that treatment while at the recovery house. I hope you told the necessary people in charge so they can rectify the situation and prevent this from happening to other girls.

I do NOT regret Dr. Ghurani

hello beautiful ladies, when i wrote about the 780ccs being injected and how upset i was, i was in a vulnerable position and i had a nurse telling me my butt looked small, i was all alone at the recovery house and went through pure hell for 3 days... as my results go by, i absolutely love my body , Ghurani shaped me beautifully, yes i wanted more, and still do, but my skin would not stretch and he didnt wanna cause a cyst from where the fat would die if he pushed it too much, i will go for round 2 eventually but who knows if this baby fluffs right, im great with that, my butt doesnt look fake it looks so real and bubbly... i talk to Dr g everyday, he has to be the most loving and caring doctor i have ever met. and its only been a week and my booty is jiggling, i try clapping and twerkin a little for the girls at the house (cause i get down), but supposedly i shouldnt be creating chaos and madness lol, i met the most amazing women at the house, Sharina is my boo thang, she is on realself but she forgot her username when she came back home the DAY of suurgery high on morphine trying to do a new review lmaoooo...out of control.. she craps me up all day and night and thats what i needed all along and our nurses are more like sisters to us, Irene and Heidi, ive had the worst experience turn into a blessing
You know what they say "GOD don't like ugly', and how she treated you, was ugly. She should never be allowed to nurse anyone. take care of your self, and here's to s safe & speedy recovery. You booty fits your body nicely.

youre right! thank you

Oh my gosh! That first caregiver is in the wrong profession. You have to have empathy to care for sick or recovery people... THAT SHE DOES NOT HAVE! I'm so sorry... that whole situation just sounds terrible and it broke my heart for you. You are there all alone with this nasty snake. I hope you have reported that to whoever HER boss is. UGH! That really upsets me. I had tears in my eyes just imaging it. Yes you were absolutely in a vulnerable state. I'm so glad that nightmare had turned into a blessing. I LOVE your body! You waist is so tiny and your booty is so round and shapely. It looks natural and beautiful. That is something that is sometimes misunderstood. Our bodies can only except so much fat before there just isn't anymore room. I really think you look amazing. It looks bigger to me today than two days ago. You have beautiful projection. I'll be so happy if I come out looking like you. :) I'm so proud of you for keeping your head held high and keeping a positive attitude. You are lucky you have such positive people around you. Sending you lots of love and healing thoughts. *hugs*

Serious question

I bought the vedette with the butt out, but it is SO tight, I'm scared I'm losing volume putting it on, did anyone lose volume putting on a tight vedette? I cut the hips out and love it on, it's just the getting in and out I'm worried about
Love it

Garment

This garment from ann cherry, waist band is amazing!!! A sweet girl from the house recommended it, and my stomach is so tiny when I take it off
Did your surgery cost include your recovery house stay? Exactly how long did you have to stay in Miami?
Reply
no the recovery house is an extra $1900 which clearly was NOT worth it, I was good to go home in a week , dr ghurani said I was good to go home after 7 days
Reply
Thanks for the heads up! Do you still recommend the help of a nurse for the first few days or like as long as you have someone with you you'd probably be cool?

Update ladies! so my butt has lost a little volume, but I'm trying to be positive, because I want to live a positive life. the way my booty is shaped is absolutely flawless I'm obsessed with it when I lay on my stomach. So I wanted to touch base on pain, its been 3 weeks since my surgery, and my stomach is in A LOT of pain, I called dr to see if it was normal and he said yes that the sensory nerves are starting to come back... eeekkkk I'm on my 7th massage and lord have mercy on my love handles, the pain is RIDICULOUS... but I know pain is beauty. i'm going to go back to dr.ghurani for my breasts and round 2 , even though 780ccs looks beautiful on me, I want at least 400ccs more and I wanna take it from my arms and inner thighs no way am I doing lipo again on my tummy, I am too tiny so it caused a lot of pain.. as for Elite, I am very disappointed in the way they handled the recovery house situation, they told me to my face that they would not allow a nurse back in the house that would treat a patient as bad as she did me.. I don't know if they think I lied or what, but she was back the NEXT DAY after I left, I don't have an issue with her getting her job back , but don't you dare lie to my face, and tell me she was fired and then promise me a free new garment, squeem which I still have NOT received. I was just dumbfounded. if you are a Ghurani girl I suggest you not stay in the recovery house period, the treat salama girls 1000000 times better than what I went through which was pure HELL
