I NEED TO SWITCH MY MARCH 17TH 2014 DATE FOR JUNE OR JULY 2014 - DR SALAMA

I want to say thanks to all my beautiful BBL...

I want to say thanks to all my beautiful BBL sisters for all your updates, pix, advices and prayers for each others. This is a great support team, and I'm glad to be on board.

I'm a mother of 3 and a wife an amazing man. I just turned 38yrs old, and realized I can have the body I have always wished and wanted. I have always admired girls with the coca cola shape and wished I was built like that, but unfortunately I have the sportish or boyish shape. So with that being said I say thank you LORD for BBL. I just paid my deposit and was told I have to wait till October to get my surgery :-( I will be willing to switch dates with someone in July, so pls let me know if anyone is willing to switch dates.

I weight 185lbs but was told by Naomi that I have to gain 10-15lbs more, ughh....... I have been pigging out cos' it's so hard for me to put on some pounds, any suggestions in gainning weight?

I called Naomi, paid my deposit and added my inner thigh lipo which is an additional $400.00. This makes the total so far for my surgery to be $7199.00. I am thinking of getting a tummy tuck, but I don't know if I my body can take all that at once, so I might be going for a TT six months after my BBL.

I am still looking to switch dates for late june/ any time in July with Dr Salama, I'm scheduled for October 8th. Any BBL sisters willing to switch dates pls contact me, luv you all for being there for one another.

Thks Kirsty, you are doing such a great job here. I will definitely take your advice.

@ Fitpostkids, I had 2 C-sections already with my kids, and I just don't know about getting a lipo, bbl & tt at the same time. I applaud all the bbl sisters that did all at thesame time. I will pray about it and let GOD direct me in the right step.

Hey there, thanks so much for sharing your journey with us. My personal opinion is that you've made the right choice leaving the TT until after your BBL, that's a lot of discomfort to deal with at one time and would make sitting/sleeping a lot harder. Please keep us updated on your progress!

I truly wish I can have my sx before I travel to Africa in August, I just hope and pray I can get a spot in July. So my beautiful BBL sisters if anyone want to change their dates plsss contact me. So far, I have gained 5lbs, 10 more to go. I am keeping my fingers crossed for a July date :-)...

Thks Anewme2012, I have 3 kids so I have to be very strong for my babies. I spoke with the doctor's office, and you get a better result when you do the sx separate.

Hey afrobeauty it is better to do the surgery seperate because you heal better and its better for your body to heal because you cant lay on your stomach or you back so you want be comfortable for atleast 6weeks

@ Nola9, you don't have any pix posted I understand your hubby don't want it, I respect that. How is your results so far with the combined sx? Hope you are doing great? Wish you speedy recovery.

So far I am still looking for someone to switch dates with, but with no luck. I've gained 5 more pounds and I don't like it at all, I can't wait to loose all these extra weight after my surgery. Right now I weight 195lbs, and 5lbs more to go before my sx. I am 5'9 and 170lbs - 175lbs is the perfect weight for my body frame.

I got my package today, yeah!!! Reality really kicks in now, I am so excited, getting my new fabulous body soon. It's so important to get your package on time and read it thoroughly, after reading the package I realised that you can't take multa vitamins weeks before sx, so no more multa vitamins for me for now.

5wks and 3days to go, preparation mode activated.
Later sisters, deuces....

Today I called a place FabNewMe gave to me for my blood work, and I am going for blood work on Friday, wish me luck. The cost for my clearance tests is $285.00 thanks girl @ FabNewMe. If I find a place cheaper that will be great, but so far this is the cheapest. I have not book my flight or hotel reservations yet b'cos I'm waiting to get cleared for sx. Good luck to all my bbl sisters and happy healing....

Np, love!!! That was the cheapest place I could find, and I looked everywhere! The office isnt fancy, so don't expect much, LOL, but the girls are nice!

gotcha yea i HATE my tummy! so im thinkin lipo and TT. my butt will just have to be ok for now bc i want to wear a 2 piece again
  • Reply
I would recommend getting the BBL first, because if you get the TT first, you will lose a lot of fat with the lipo that comes with it. You wouldn't be able to put that fat to good use, and it would be waisted :-( causing you to have less to transfer when you do get your BBL

Went for my blood work and Ekg today. Ekg was okay but I have to wait till next week friday for the result of my blood work. As I am getting close, am getting a lil nervous. I won't book my flight and hotel till I get clearance for my sx, so I will wait till next weekend. I got 30 days to go, YEAH!!!!!
I ordered my make me heal plastic surgery healing suppliments & vitamin kit (pre & post op formula) for $66.90 including shipping from Amazon. I am taking Iron 130mg and Vitamin c 1000mg daily and will start taking the other medication 2 weeks pre sx that Dr Salama recommends. So far just waiting for my clearance to really get the kick of my journey.
Good luck and happy healing to all my bbl sistas.

I am so excited got less than 30 days to go, but my nerves are getting to me. The more I get closer to my date, the more I am getting nervous and praying for safe sx and recovery. I am so looking forward to the new bootylicious me :)))
Goodluck to all my beautiful bbl sistas and happy healing....

Got my clearance letter for sx today, yeah!!! I also got my makemeheal multinutrients pre & post op in the mail today. Time to start packing up and getting every lil thing I will need for my trip.
When I went to pick up my clearance letter today, the doc and the assistant wanted to know what kind of sx I am going in for? I said a tt and lipo, definitely left out the bbl, lol..... The doc said she dosen't think I need one, I just smiled. All I want is my clearance letter for my bootay doc :)))
I am just glad I am getting closer to my date.
Thanks to the vets for all your reviews, it's really helping me in preparing. Later ladies and cheers!!!

I got a week to go. I just can't believe it's finally here after waiting for about six months. I am so ready, I have been getting every thing I need.

I got my Arnica montana and bromelain healing suppliments from make me heal which I will start taking today, a week before sx as required by Dr Salama. So far I am taking my iron pills, vitamin C, and pre op multinutrients from make-me-heal. I also ordered Arnica montana gel and Arnica massaging oil from Amazon.

I booked for two pre op massages with massage envy this week.

I book my flight with delta airlines, got a good deal from hotwire.com for $180 round trip. I also booked my hotel reservations with Best Western on Sterling rd Dania beach, $895 for the suite with full kichen. The hotel is about 15mins drive from Dr Salama's office which is okay with me. I just got to start packing up my bag for this trip.
Wishing all my bbl sisters having their sx this week happy healing and a speedy recovery.
Cheers!

I called the office and spoke to Naomi about the pre op massages, she said it is not recommended, that it really doesn't do anything for you except you just like massages. I read some reviews where girls says it helps you drain better but Naomi said it isn't so. I guess instead of getting two pre op, I will just get one the day before my flight to Miami. Before I do anything or make any decision concerning my sx, I like to speak and confirm with the doctor's office. Sending prayers to my October 1st ladies.

I arrived Fortlauderdale at about 11am, and sweet Mr Larry picked me up and dropped me off at my hotel, the Best Western on Stirling rd.
My bbl buddy partner Cinnamon2 came over to see me, she is super cool. We both went shopping for all we will need for the week, and went for our pre-op together. She rented a car which made moving around very easy. Met with Ruben to fill out all my paper work, he is very nice, and answered all my questions.

It is about 9.40pm, so I have to get some rest for tomorrow, my sx is at 7.00am. Keep on praying for me my beautiful bbl sisters.

Thanks my beautiful bbl sisters for all your prayers and well wishes. I am feeling great, been drinking a lot of fluid and walking. I am not so much in pain, from a scale of 1-10, I will say a 4 to 5. It more of discomfort and stiffness. I got 1100cc, I told Dr S I don't want a big bootay, more of a nice shape and he showed of me. I will update tomorrow after my garment change, need to get some rest. Cheers!

Oct- 9th
Went to the office to get the paddings removed from inside my garment, and my skin was so sensitive to touch, not a good feeling. Had an extra small t shirt on before I put my garment back on. I can't remember the last time I wore an extra small t shirt. My waist is super small, love it. I thought I was getting a garment change today, but I didn't, my garment was socked yesterday ,all the back and front was socked from drainage. I took my garment off when I got back to the hotel and washed it, I did not like the feeling at all cos my butt felt like exploding after about 30mins.Putting the garment back on wasn't as bad, but was difficult.
A little tip " I had a maxipad on the inside of my garment right underneath my boobs to protect the garment from hurting my skin" it sure felt comfortable afterwards.

Oct- 10th
Finally did #2 this morning, I know it's tmi but just had to share, the night before sx I had a lot of fiber so that helped. I took a shower this morning and I felt dizzy and weak afterward, I had to drink some cold water and lay down for a lil bit. I had my massage today with Celia, and it wasn't fun at all, I took a Peck and half before I went and that shit was still painful, it's like a burning feeling. The good thing was that Celia uses ice pack for the massage which kind of cool down the burning effect. I felt real good after the massage and just wanted to get back to the hotel to sleep, but I had to wait for Larry for an hour. Mr Larry is a sweet old man but just too much work for him alone. I met a fellow bbl sister QTQT, and she looks real good, Dr Salama is really doing his thing lately.

Really? Why? I'm only asking because I want to assess why ppl are going for round 2 so I can ask the right questions & get it right the 1st time. :0)
