I am currently 130 lbs and 5'6. I just booked my bbl with Dr.Salama and was told to gain about 10 lbs. My goal is to gain maybe 15 - 20 lbs because I really dont have that much fat on me, I want a very round and big butt and you loose 30% of it. I am writting this review because I really haven't seen any about girls having to gain weight for the procedure and hope to help some of you out! I am always at the gym and never eat any junk food but I have always been the same weight no matter what I've eaten.
Updade on my weight gain
I am the healthiest eater ever I never eat carbs, processed foods, or sugar unless it is from a natural source like fruit. So gaining weight is a little bit of a challenge, I have always been the same weight (130 lbs) for years now which got me concerned because I have a fast metabolism and dont really gain weight. I have been trying to eat excessively to gain more weight but by eating some what healthy foods and of course eating what ever I want as well. Instead of having 3/4 cups of oatmeal Ill try to eat 1/2 cup to 1 cup, I eat way more carbs now like potatoes and bread, and I have been eating foods with high fats such as nuts, sardines, steak. Here are the pictures I sent Salama before I gained any weight, he told me I should gain 10 lbs. I havent been on a scale since but my brother keeps calling me fat YAY
Where I am staying in Aventura, FL
I decided to rent out a condo from www.vacationrentals.com because I will be staying in Aventura for 20 days. The longer you stay the better so that you can get most of your massages done and you can hold off sitting on your bum for the plane ride the longest. I came across a very nice condo at the aventura yacht club. It is fully furnished with a bedroom, living room, two tvs (one in the bedroom and living room), full kitchen, bathroom, hot tub, pool, tennis court ect.. even tho I wont be able to enjoy it because I will be dying in the bedroom my mom will be able to because she is coming with me to take care of me. For 20 days the total came out to 2133 which is not so bad for my budget. I really dont want to cheap out on where I'm staying because it is where I'll be spending all of my time.
HOW DID YOU GUYS FLY BACK HOME?
Did you guys sit on the seat with a boppy pillow or did you reserve rows and went on your tummy? my flight is about 3h 30 mins so it wont be that bad but before i book my plane tickets I would really like to know! Thanks xoxo
Surgery is right around the corner
Just wanted to update all of you! My surgery is in 10 days!!!! im more excited than nervous. But I know that i'll start freaking out as soon as I get in to the OR. I've booked my flight, payed for the surgery, and got all my supplies. I gained 13 lbs and have managed to maintain this weight for about a month now which is very good. If you cant maintain the fat that you were suppose to gain then your butt will obviously shrink when you get the surgery done. Here are a few pictures of me before I gained my weight at 130 lbs when I was very active at the gym.
My surgery is on on friday and im so nervous I feel like I'm going to have a heart attack the day of surgery. :((((
QUICK QUESTION TO ANY SALAMA PATIENT
i forgot my compression socks at home and my surgery is tomorrow. Do they provide you a pair? because it would be really nice to have some during surgery lol
Today is the day
Leaving for surgery in about 40 mins!!!! Thank you all for the kind comments. I'm so happy the condo I'm staying at is only 12 mins away from the surgery facilty. Wish me luck I'll talk to you girls soon.
I made it
I made it!!! My surgery wasn't very long because I have a smaller frame thank god. The only thing that hurts is my lipo tummy. The anesthesiologist is amazing. I don't feel nausea at all
Update 2 days post op
Okay so im feeling a lot better so ive decided to update you guys. I was super nervous the past 4 days before surgery. The day of surgery I go to the waiting room and wait for about an hour and a half. I meet with the anestheseologist then change into my paper panties, paper gown, hair net, compression socks, socks over them and urine sample. I met with salaam again so that he could mark me up we ended up talking for so long about random stuff that the anestheseologist had to tell us it was time for sugary. i was so happy cuz that really helped me not get nervous. He right away put my iv in then I fell asleep and woke up. I think my surgery only lasted about 2 hours since I have a smaller frame. He managed to remove 3.8 l of fat and inject 1350 cc of fat in each cheek. I was so high that I couldnt remember much after surgery I was just very thirsty and hot. I was doing really well the first day I ate and drank alot but I threw up 3 times. I didnt feel any pain cuz I took 1 perc every 2 hours. I slept the whole two days pretty much and woke every few hours to walk and pee. Tomorrows my first massage ill update you again later IIM TOO HOTright now
