SEPT 2 TOUCH UP WITH DR. GHURANI POST PONED! :(

First I want to say Is thank you for all your post...

First I want to say Is thank you for all your post and reviews! It really helped me make my decision and I am so excited and ready for Miami! I am 42 yrs old 5'7" 170lbs! Really wish i could get down to 150lbs. I spoke with Nancy 3 times in less than 4 days! God Bless Her Heart she is a sweetheart!! She laughed at all my stupid jokes and answered all my questions! Initially I was going to do a TT with a BBL but I chickened out! Dr. S said he would do both because I really need a Tummy Tuck! He said he would only be able to give me 500cc in each buttock! No good for me! I would have to lie on my side in a 45 degree position! Pain would be super high! I'm good NO THANKS LOL! Doing the BBL and then God willing I will go back on a future date for the TT. Deposit Made! Excitement starting! Ladies all the help and advise would be greatly appreciated! If anyone else is doing this around the same time that may be interested in sharing a room and a nurse let me know!

Hey Bella405 I was to scared to go outside the country. Once you step outside of this country you lose all rights to the law, this wonderful country offers! I thought about Dr. Jimmerson but My gut said Dr. Salama! I can't wait to get Salamiafied! Good luck with your search! Let me know who you choose!

Love reading all of these journeys. I'm trying to find a good doctor and a reasonable price for my bbl. If anyone knows of a good doctor, please let me know. I've talked to global medical and considering going to the Dominican. Still in the research stage though. Keep us updated on your journey!

Hi Guys I have come to the conclusion I cant wait until august 2013!!! I received a call from Dr. jimmerson's office yesterday (2 weeks after the email i sent) they set me up with a phone consultation and she said I could get in as soon as Jan I would also be able to have fat grafting the the breast at the same time! Has anyone ever had fat grafting to the breast area? I sure could use it the twins having been deflated thanks to mommy hood! I am so confused I know Dr. Jimmerson is a good doctor but doctor Dr.Salama has become the BBL king here on Real Self! I don't know what to do!!! Aug is so far away! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hope you get the result you are wanting in Jan if not August :)

Yassie, I'm scared of of everything and excited at the same time...lol I can hardly sleep at night thinking what to do! I can get a BBL and BL for 7900.00 and global medical is based in Florida but the surgery would be performed in the Dominican. I wish I could find a qualified doc. here for a reasonable price but I have not had any luck. I have Care Credit that I can only use here. I'm looking at next Oct. 2013 for my surgery. It will take me that long to save up!
Keep looking you will find someone!! Don't give up! I know Dr. Salama has a great rep he charges around $7999 for BBL and then somewhere around $3999 for BL Call them maybe they can work something out for you! Maybe do one in 2013 then next one in 2014? I am so excited I have always wanted this done and now it available!! I just wish I didn't have to wait until Aug 2013! Its alot of money I no I am thankful I have good credit or else I would never be able to do this!

I am looking but can't find anyone who is giving up their date. I really would like to get in jan or feb if anyone out there is looking to give up their date please let me know.

Body Upgrading Dr. Salama has July appointments available. I have to work the last 2 weeks of July and I wouldn't be able to do my work if I was in recovery. That's why I went with Aug. Can't wait to get SALAMAFIED! Welcome to team Salama!!!

When God was passing out patience I must of been in the back of the line because I just don't have any! Now I am contemplating Dr. Jimmerson? But I really wanna get Salamified! I am also wondering if I should get a BA along with the BBL? I worry about the pain of having both at the same time? Has anyone had this done? I would like to have fat grafting to the butt and breasts but I hear fat grafting to the breast is no good? Any one have any input on that? Has anyone had a TT, BA & BBL at the same time? Please, if anyone knows of anyone needing to give up or switch their date please let me know. Jan, Feb would but ideal but I can do April, May Thanks!

Call the office and ask to be put on the consultatipn cancellation list. I did that back at the end of august and a few days after mine was scheduled for Oct. 25th they called me a few days later and had me set up the first week n sept. I did a virtual consult so idk if that made a difference too...

I firmly believe that Dr. Salama and Dr. Jimmerson give the best BBL. So I started a new search for the best Dr. for a Tummy Tuck! Dr. Salama it is! Most important to me was the tightness along with the scar. It is a huge scar so I was looking for someone who goes low with the scar as well as a smooth line that goes from hip to public line the back up to the upper hip . Dr. Salama does, it also looks like he takes his time cutting. Most doctors looked like they just cut you from hip to hip (straight across) and the line is very edgy. This is a lifetime scar! Sure it will fade but it will be forever. I will wait on the tummy tuck for Dr. Salama. Hopefully Santa will deliver with a Jan BBL and an Aug Tummy Tuck lol. With that being said if anyone has a Jan, Feb, April, May date let me know if we can work something out!

I know God works things in his time. but I am getting bummed out about having to wait so long

Hey, maybe you should go on a juice diet for a while. My friend is doing that ... drinking loads of freshly made juice and eating one meal usually lunch. It seems to be working for her.
  • Reply
Thank You
place to stay find a condo or a timeshare you can rent. or check out homewood suites, springhill suites or residence inns. Not too familiar with Miami. Vacation rental may be your best bet. Losing weight....you have enough time. Eliminate any white products like rice, pasta, bread, sugar, etc. Increase your water, protein and fruits and vegetables. Try to also do about 30 mins a day of exercise...house work, yard work, stay busy keep moving. You will make it. No alcohol.

LADIES i am so disappointed that this site has taken it upon themselves to change their policies without informing us!!! I like other have photos here that I did not expect to be permanent!! Just the thought that I can not remove them makes me sick to my stomach! I really hope REAL SELF changes this fast! I to (like others have stated) will have to leave or at the very least will stop posting anything personal even my experiences. Which is a shame!! WE are here to share our personal info! If I choose to leave I want the option to take my personal info with me! Currently we can not close our account and remove anything from the site! Once it is posted it can not be removed! AS WELL AS OUR PICTURES!!!! I am thankful that I never posted my face but still am very concerned that I may be noticed at some point over the years by the photo's I did post! Plastic surgery is very personal and I don't feel like Real Self should have taken advantage of us like this! To be allowed to post something then you post and have that option taken away should not be legal. Sorry to say the least I am pi_ _ed!

Probably wouldn't have been so bad had RS stated in Bold print "ONCE YOU POST PHOTO'S YOU CAN NOT REMOVE THEM" but the option was taken away without informing those who posted (is that legal)! I am upset because I have photo's posted on one of my questions. I never needed anyone's photo to get there journey clear to me! I understood what the blog was saying without photo's! I am a big girl now just like many of us, I have grown out of "picture books" and have advanced my reading to chapter books (they do not offer pictures) and I can still see the point of the story without it completely changing the story and it did not make it difficult to follow a person's progress. Taking away the right to remove photo's is only going to make it so that people will not post photo's!

Hi Ladies,

I'm aware a few of you have some concerns over pictures, so please let me explain what is happening and if you have any questions you can PM me.

Because photos are an essential part of the story you're telling, we no longer offer the option to self-delete photos from a review.

We made this change in response to community feedback on reviews where photos were deleted. Site visitors who provided feedback compared this to ripping pages out of a book; it completely changed the story and made it difficult to follow a person's progress.

We can still delete photos at your request; All you have to do is write to the community manager of your area (in this case, me) to confirm which photos you would like to have removed. However, we do hope you'll consider the impact this will have on your review, and for others who are learning from your story.

As I mentioned, if you have any questions please PM me as I will be able to respond to PMs quicker than if you leave comments here.

Thanks,

Kirsty

The RS Staff Cropped my pictures for me! I do appreciate them doing that! I would rather have had them removed but I do appreciate them doing what they did for me!. I will continue to follow the posts But I will not be posting any photo's of my self here! I will also be limiting a lot of my time on Real Self do to their Terms! I really believe you should all read over the terms very carefully! I can say I personally do not agree with it and this is why I have to limit my "login" on Real Self

This photos on this site are not permanent. You can have them deleted if you contact real self management. I think you should continue to add pics of your progress after surgery because that is what this site is for. You can crop them yourself so youre face and tats do not show. No one can look at these pics and pick you out of a line up if your body features are not shown. Do not be discouraged, like you learned from others, others are learning from you. If you think about it people who have a fb page show their face and even though there is a delete button, your photos have already been saved and your info is all online. IMJ With this site you would not have seen the negative and positive results of the Dr. you chose. On your doctor choice, I say pray about it.

If you always felt confident about who you were going with don't change be realistic about how you are going to come out looking and what can happen. This surgery seems to have lots of pros and cons. I think it's a wonderful thing that people say the bad and the good. Too many times people are just stating the good. Salama runs this board in the butt department. Everybody's outcome and healing process is different.

Ladies I am considering the TT with the mini BBL. Anyone have this done together? I need help I am worried any advice? how do you sleep? how was the recovery? they tell me I would have to sleep on my back but how will that effect my BBL? what supplies do you recommend? any imput would really help Please 8 days to go! my screaming voice>>>>eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee8 days so much to do!!

4 Comments

I'm having my BBL one week before my TT, as per the Dr recommendations. He doesn't perform them together because of the recovery. He stated that I couldn't sit for 1 week because of the fat transfer. But Iv'e read ladies saying you should'nt sit for 3 weeks, even some mentioned 6. So in preparation of having both procedures, I concluded that laying down after the TT will be the way to go. I ordered foam padding per the recommendation of another member here. You just cut the shape of your behind out and it would prevent it from being squished. Heres the link to the foam... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009ZLG112/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&smid=A22SRM5AZO37HA Iv'e also purchased a Boppy pillow, and a full body pillow. Thats all of the tips that were given to me thus far.
  • Reply
Thanks! I was looking into that foam thingy I am also looking into renting a power recliner for a few weeks I think that will help too. My sister has a prego pillow I will borrow that when I can sleep on my side.
Hello I had both done but my tt was my main focus that was just a bonus. Yes you will have to be on your back there is no way of getting around it. After a week I started to sleep sitting up with lots of pillows and on my side. I bought a body pillow and that has helped me a lot on Amazon. It has went down a lot but I may do a touch up not sure lipo sucks!

Goodmorning!! Well i am here still recovering....

Goodmorning!! Well i am here still recovering. After speaking with Dr. Salama on monday I decided to take his advice and go with the TT only. Thank God!!! Yesterday was a bad day. The drain was pulling and pinching me all the way up my back!! I was throwing up and i couldn't walk. Today seems to be better so far. I took a shower had some breakfest. Now back to resting. I couldn't imagine what the pain would have been like had i had both. I can't imagine going threw this again but i am sure i will I still need a BUTT!! Lol. Dr. Salama has been wonderful! He has been taking good care of me, answering my calls, texts, laughing at my stupid jokes and making few jokes. I am will post a picture as soon as i figure out how to on my phone. Thanks for the prayers and well wishes!!

Hi! Ladies! Thank you!! Thank You!! Your support had been so amazing!! Well i am still here finally able to take 1/2 perc every 5 hours! My compression socks were making my feet blue last night and my sister was sleep so i couldn't get them off!! So i took a pair of scissors to them!! (Dont forget to buy a grabber ladies!! I forgot mine at home). I was able to get out for a bet and met everyone at the office yesterday. Today I have my follow up at the OR! Wish me luck ladies I am missing my bed!! I dont think he will let me go home, my drains are no were near ready to be removed! I will try and get some photo's today. Take care of your selves post op ladies. I am praying for you all!! Pre op ladies get your bodies healthy and in shape it will help so much with your recovery!! The pnly other advice I have is to have realistic expectation!! Your Doctor is a human. Not a God!! He can help fix what you have to make it nicer!! He can not perfect it!! Only God can do that!! He can do his work the rest is in your's and God's hands!! If your expecting this is be perfected dont do it!! Save your money!!

Thank You all for the birthday, prayers wishes!!! To all you ladies recovering you are in my prayers! Its day 6 can't believe 1 week ago today i was landing in Miami right now!!! I finally did it and now i am home in my bed! my day started at 4am! Let me tell you ladies i am completely blown away with dr. Salama's professionalism!! Wonderful, amazing caring, accomadating, and to put it simple a gr8 Dr.!! As for me i am getting better trying to stand straight! He made my muscle tight!!! Still have alot of fluid! He helped me with putting my garment on! Lol he said I think you will need a large. Then we couldnt get the garment on!! Lol he says they run small! Lol brought me an xl! Lol that damn near took my stitches out!! So on we go to 2x nope to tight!! 3xl!! :( Funny though i no i am not a real 3x. In fact i put my size large pants on this morning and they are super lose already! Cant wait to be done with the garment and be me again! i had tp put the long sleeves and long pants back on ! I went from 82 degrees to 19 degrees in 2 1/2 hours! Sucks!!! My drain is still in my pcp is wonderful and he previously agreed to take over my care! I dont think this drain is coming out anytimes soon! Bummer!! Tommorrow puts me at 1 week!! As for meds i had 1/2 perc today and 2 tyelnol. Although i am not a big fan of pain pills so to be honest I still have half of them left! after my tubal I only used tyelnol! So I say now Let the healing begin!!

Hi Ladies! Today is day 10! Feeling so much better now that I am back to driving. Time to go shopping for new panties! lol My belly button is looking great!! My swelling has gone down a good bit! Yesterday I found a Dr. That told me I could possiblily get my insurance to cover my massages! :D Still alittle tired but to be expected especially when you live in the city where the sun never shines! eeehhh! I wanted to let you ladies know that Dr. Salama is a true professional and goes past his duties as a Dr! I have never had a Dr. give me his cell phone number let alone respond to my text so quickly and he is a man, we all know it takes men hours to respond to text's (jk) lol I am no longer in Florida but I do feel like my follow up care has been amazing. Didnt get this much care when I had Plastic Surgery in my home town! When I went for my 3rd follow up with Dr. Salama there was a beautiful young lady in the elevator with me she was coming in for her 1 year. She looked hot! So jealous!! lol There where a few girls coming and going and I can tell you from what I saw he is the bootay man! oh and the tummy man too lol. Trust me he has a client base that knows nothing about Real Self! He is booked into Oct for a good reason and I can tell you for me so far my tummy tuck is looking good!

Hi Ladies! I jujst wanted to let you know I am still here! I have moved over to the Tummy Tuck reviews, because I had a tummy tuck almost 5 weeks ago. I really dont like all the drama here on the BBL. I will continue with The Tummy Tuck review until I am ready for my BBL, which should be in the fall God willing! You ladies all look wonderful and I am so happy for you! Can't wait to get my BBL with Dr. Salama!

I recieved an email to update so here it is>>>>It looks like to my BBL will be put on hold for now due to cost. I am 9 weeks post op from a Tummy Tuck. I was told 4 months post op I would be ready for my BBL. I was really excited about having this done. After all this is what brought me to real self and Dr. Salama. Yes I am ready to get this BBL done with already seems like it has been going on for ever! After Spending $5600 on Tummy Tuck $1400 on an apartment,$1100 on flights $300 on car rental plus gas and food. At the price quoted for a BBL it just doesn't look good for me. That's all I have for now guys God Bless!

I'm understand what ur saying with the cost and all. But don't worry your day will come. So it's all good. Prices may even drop a bit like everything else. Goes up then comes down...when more doctors come out of the woods producing beautiful booties. The competition will be fierce!

I found my condo on homeaway.com. Mine will average about $600 per week...I'm staying for two. That site had lots of options and for the most part, I found many that were cheaper than staying in a hotel. Check it out.

I stayed with my cousin after surgery and she has a two story home I went up and down her stairs after day 2 with no problem. I enjoyed the stretching especially being stiff. Just depends on ur pain tolerance I guess.

I am back so I can share my experience

Well here it goes..... I had my BBl on June 13. On June 12th I had my pre op with Dr. G. I love him he is an honest, amazing, caring doctor! He took his time and went over everything to the detail with me. He also made it clear I would feel like a "Mack truck" hit me. After my visit I went to Wal-Mart and picked up enough food for 10 days. Went to the airport picked up my bestie and headed back to the hotel. In the morning we headed to the surgical center. There was greeted by the sweet Yaneisy (Nurse). She remembered me from Jan when I had my Tummy tuck. She took me to the bathroom to so I could change and then walked me to the office where I was greeted by the anesthesiologist (sweet heart). Dr. G came in asked me if I was ready. We talked for a good bit then he started to mark me up while I made my stupid jokes. Again he went over everything and told me what to expect and what not to expect. I really appreciated all the information and the honesty. They took to the surgical room and again we all laughed at my stupid (but funny lol) jokes. The anesthesiologist walked me thru the process of the needle…. I feel asleep. I woke up in the recovery room laying face down. After a little while Yaneisy brought me something to drink and then a wheel chair. I was taken downstairs to the car where my girls where waiting for me. We go back to the hotel and I went right to sleep. I woke up due to the nausea. Anesthesia makes me very nauseas. I drank a little and slept. First day was hard I slept, forced myself to walk and threw up. I was in a lot of pain but I hate pain pills! I took ½ perc and then an hr later 2 Tylenols. I continued that thru the night. I woke Friday so swollen I couldn’t recognize myself. I wasn’t worried because Dr. G prepared me for this. (He told me day one was going to be bad, day 2 worse and day 3 worse than day 2, by day 4 swelling would start to subside) I had my follow up and then back to the hotel. I walked every hour (around the hotel room), I threw up a lot and couldn’t hold anything down. Friday night I decided no more pain meds (they were making me to sick). I took Tylenol only. All night I woke up every hour to use the bathroom, walk and throw up. Saturday morning I woke up throwing up. At this point my bestie was getting worried. I could no longer eat or hold anything down. She text Dr. G and explained the situation and he called me right away. He advised me to drink ensure because my body need protein. After 1 bottle of ensure I was a new women!!!! I felt great!! The pain was down to an uncomfortable feeling but honestly I had more pain from sleeping on my stomach than anything else. I walked to the beach with my girls and washed my feet in the water, took some pictures and headed back for my nap. That evening I had a real meal grilled steak French fries and salad Yum! Sunday morning I woke up made myself eggs toast and coffee. Went out to the pool/boardwalk area and enjoyed my breakfast (standing up of course). Sunday was my first day for a bm and it was so messy I had to get a shower. I was walking the boardwalk and enjoying watch my little girls swim. I am blessed! Monday we celebrated my baby girls 9th birthday and enjoyed a great dinner with cake. Pain at this point was only in my neck from sleeping on my tummy (I am a back sleeper). Tuesday I went for my massage and post op with Dr. G. I felt great! We laughed and I told him his Mack truck was more like a Tonka truck! Lol. We went back to the hotel to find out the sweet and lovely manager was diagnosed with breast cancer. So Sad Ladies please keep her in your prayers! Wednesday I wake up to find out I had to rush home due to an unexpected emergency! Caught the evening flight out! I am so blessed!!! The plane was mostly empty and had 3 seats to sleep on my way home! I had my boppy pillow for takeoff but honestly I was too scared to sit on it so I leaned forward propped myself on my thighs and hugged the seat in front of me to hold me up! As soon as the seat belts were allowed to be removed the flight attendant came to me and told me to lay down and let her know if I need anything. That Saturday my lovely neighbor (nurse) came over and took out my drains and I was free from my balls and chains! Lmao! I haven’t had any pain meds not even Tylenol since. I have a wonderful masseuse here (she works with a plastic surgeon) I have been getting my massage 2 times a week. I took in my garment a few times. Sleeping on my tummy has gotten a lot easier and standing almost all day isn’t as bad as it was at first. It’s been hard relying on people for rides but I refuse to sit on my new bootay! I Thank God everyday he has blessed me over and over again! My neighbor, my friends, my daughter and my sisters have been amazing! I so thank full for all I have and I thank God over and over again for giving me all he has given me!

Hey Hun! I am feeling great! The recovery has not been bad for me at all! Thank God! I am Blessed! I am so excited for next Thursday! 6 weeks yea me! I miss sitting! Yesterday was a tough day I lost a lot of swelling/volume so sad. How are you? You look amazing Mama!!
You look great and day by day review! Love the butt shot! :)

Almost sitting time! I have been Ghuranished!

I can't believe this Thursday will be 6 weeks!!!! I never thought I would miss sitting so much! I have enjoyed these past 2 weeks of dress up! I bought my first bikini in over 25 years and if I could say so myself I look good Lmao! I finally broke down and bought a 136 vedette size medium! Serious wedgies!!!! With my height and waist/hip ratio I don't know if I like it to much! I have not been able to wear it for more than a couple hours. I am still in the same garment I received at eps Miami (I have taken it in a lot). Hate it! lol Friday was a very depressing day for me! I lost a lot of volume and I felt like crying all day! I am sure it is just the swelling but If I lose more volume I will be so sad! This body transformation has cost me so much $! My lower abs still stick out. I want to believe it is swelling but it has been 7 months since my Tummy Tuck with not much change in the lower abs. Right now I am hoping I "fluff" what ever that means because I really wanted to have a large booty. Health wise I feel great! I am truly blessed this recovery was not hard on me at all! Dr. Ghurani is a wonderful person/doctor! He really educated me on this. He prepared me for the worst and I can will say over and over I am so thankful for all his pre op and post op care! Ladies it is so important to get full information about this procedure. If you are not getting responses from your doctor look elsewhere!! You are paying for their experience, their time. their care and their talent! I know I was one of the few who got thru this with little pain but it is not an easy recovery. I have a very high tolerance for pain. Out of the 60 percs I bought I still have 55. I had a tubal ligation with only Tylenol. I will keep you guys updated
