Initially i was just interested in liposuction because i have the worst love handles :( I did my research and thought why not improve my overall shape since i was getting my flanks and abdomen done. Go big or go home right? So i've decided to get a BBL so that I can have a nice curvy overall shape :) The down side is that im a single parent and I live far away from my family and my child is away for the summer but will return the end of august and im not sure how i will be able to recuperate from my surgery :-?

I've decided to get my inner thighs done as well. I'm kind of afraid that recovery from my thighs will be the worse. For some reason im not afraid of the pain..... yet. Im really hoping and praying i can get another date before August because if not im going to have to reschedule for next summer :((

I applied for care credit just to keep the remaining cash that i would spend on surgery but i was told its up to the doctor if the do the 0% interest. I only have another 2400 to pay but i planned to pay at least 1600 tomorrow. if there is 0 interest id charge it. Has anyone used care credit?

I'm really frustrated my friend was told by someone that it's going to take more than one person to care for me post surgery so now she backing out! This is so frustrating I can't deal :,-((

I'm just sitting here in tears. I wish i wouldn't have told my closest friends, i feel like i don't have anyone that supports this and i don't want to do this alone. i already have a hard time asking people to help me do things and i feel like this is the reason why. I'm feeling so discouraged right now, i just wanna tell them all that i decided to cancel the procedure and just go through with it alone.

This all happened so fast for me. I wanted to get cool sculpting done and I had a random convo with my friend who told me lipo was really in expensive. So I looked into it and decided to go with Dr.Okoro in Atlanta since my boyfriend lives there and he could take care of me post op. Well I only wanted my flanks done then my boyfriend was like when u get that removed you'll have a huge gut O_o >_

So I broke my iPhone today FML. Anywhoo I'm trying to figure out what you ladies did to sleep as comfortably as possible. Should I get a body pillow? I can't believe I'm having surgery so soon

I didnt go back for surgery til 12:30 and left the surery center at 6. I met my BBL partner Goody2Shoes (spell check) and she's so sweet. He hubby is mad cool and loves and supports her to the upmost (congrats girl you have a great support system). I met my girl FabNewMe and I love her, she's so sweet and so nice of makes me emotional to think about it, I'm so grateful for her. BTW her pictures do NOT do her justice she is SEXY as hell & very pretty too.

I haven't had ANY pain just soreness,(I hope this isn't a jinx) but I do know that GOD IS AMAZING!!! My experience has been great so far. I'm sleepy and I don't feel like being really thorough right now but I will update when I do. And I got 1200 cc's and I did NOT get my thighs done. I get a little nauseated and weak feeling for 60 secs when I stood up too long after using the bathroom for about5 mins.

Not looking forward to the massage tomorrow.....

Not looking forward to the massage tomorrow.. updated pics... im really sleepy ill update later

Okay so I'm almost 3 day post op. let me start by saying Dr.Salama has an amazing team!! They are really everything I could ask for. They aren't just trying to get your money I feel like I'm apart of their family. When I woke up from surgery I was swollen as heck, face, eyes everything. Ish was crazy. No pain (I prayed hard) just soreness. It's totally bearable. I took a perc as soon as surgery was over and every 2.5 hours and by day 2 I went up to taking 3 an hour.

Dr. Salama gave me 1200 cc's and removed 4000 cc...

Dr. Salama gave me 1200 cc's and removed 4000 cc of fat and I was very happy about that!! I did not have my thighs done because I was on the fence about it but most of all I wanted as much fat out of my trunk area. While recovering from surgery I dO not suggest any additional areas, I believe it makes recovery so much more miserable and it can't be worth it. My mom and brother have been absolutely amazing throughout my recovery and it's do important to have a grey support system.
Goodie2shoes and FabNewMe look absolutely amazing. Both of them have very tiny waists and have a nice round ass. Pictures do NOT do them justice!!

I had my massage 2 days post op and it was bitter sweet. It hurt but it wasn't as bad as the reviews that I read. In my experience nothing was as bad as the reviews I read. My advice.... PRAY. I had everyone praying for me and I prayed myself and God worked it out!!! "Ask and ye shall receive." for me the massage felt like... You ever got a whoopin when you were a child lol and u had soreness or whips after (my mom didn't play that ish) well it felt like that and someone was massging it. I took two perks 30 minutes prior though and it wasn't bad. I'm actually looking forward to my second massage today.

I keep updating because sometimes from my phone if the post is long everything doesn't post. After my massage on post op day 2 I went to Walmart, Ross, the flea market and Boston market (yes I felt good enough to do all those things). My ass looks huge to me and I wanted it to go down. Ill post more pictures probably after the massage today. Also I had gas like crazy after the massage, like all day. It felt so good though lol. My face Is still swollen. Ive been eating good though but I have no appetite at all. I still haven't had. Bowel movement I'll take one colace today though. Any questions reel free to ask away. I've been so sleepy after the surgery though so if I don't respond quickly this is why. Love you all

Last night/this morning has been the worse for me but it's still not really bad. I had night sweats, a sore throat, slightly stuffy nose and a little nausea. It's isn't really bad I just feel a little yucky. I'll try and just rest before my massage at 1.

I've been trying to update but it's been getting...

I've been trying to update but it's been getting deleted, I'll update when I have the energy. This process is a roller coaster ride and me personally wouldnt do it all over again. Because I already had a decent body. This shit gets real bad then it's real good again. I took my front drain out myself last night because I was in excruciating pain------ no exaggeration. I had surgery Tuesday and it's Sunday. So I'm 5 days post op

I promise i'll give a detalied review when im up to it, yall will understand after surgery

Good Afternoon Ladies I hope all is well. Today I am 12 days post op and this have definitely been a roller coaster ride. I do think i had a pretty good recovery looking back, but it was hard as hell. iv'e been putting off doing a review because i have so much to say but Goody2shoes convinced me to update. Lets Start from the day before surgery

7/16 The day before surgery I went into the office and I met Jennifer, Naomi, Ruben and Nancy. Dr. Salama has the most AMAZING TEAM!! I signed paperwork with nancy and she gave me some arnica pills and we talked and she and Ruben made me feel so comfortable with everything. I was told that I had to be at the OR at 10:15 the next morning.

7/17 Surgery Day I arrived at the OR at 10:15 with my two best friends. I didnt get called back until about 11:45 and i was getting cranky because I was hungry. I went in the bathroom and changed into my gown, compression socks, surgery undies and headed to meet with Dr. Salama. He was laughing at me because my friends and I were being silly in the waiting area and he could see us from the OR lol smh. He marked me up and i showed him the slope that i wanted in my back but other than that I did not show hom a wish pic.I asked him if he didnt like wish pics and he said its not that and i asked if it was that some people are unrealistic and he said yes. I AGREE 100%. I waked in the surgery room and was greeted by monica the OR supervisor, shes so sweet. I layed on the bed and she put my legs in thiese things that massage your legs during surgery and i wasnt nervous at any point, its crazy. I met Craig who was my nurse anesthetist. He was very sweet and I told him I wanted to be comfortable when i woke up. He told me that was the plan. He did the Iv in my hand and tolf he that he injected something and to let me know when i feel it. I was looking around about to ask what exaclty was i suppose to feel and i dont remember anything else lol. I woke up briefly and i was laying next to Dr. Salama and he asked if i was okay and i said yes and went back to sleep. The next time i woke up i was about to fall out of my wheel chair because someone didnt put the brakes on the damn thing smh. ANywhoo i was in NO PAIN whe i woke up, i felt great.
