Hello everyone I'm new to posting but not to the...

Hello everyone I'm new to posting but not to the site, Im in need of a march date. I had a november date but dident get cleared because of my blood pressure issue. So dr. Salama said im next in line for any cancellations.

His assistant called me tuesday and asked if I wanted to take a cancellation coming up and I said I need a march date due to my school schedule I need to have it done during the time I have off. I was told they have to call me first for every cancellation because im first on the list. But I keep stressing them for a march date which they are all booked up unless I can find someone willing to give me theirs.

Hi there, welcome and thanks for sharing your journey with us. There are always ladies wanting to swap dates, so hopefully you'll get lucky!

Please do keep us updated with your progress.


Hello everyone, lemme tell you a little about...

Hello everyone, lemme tell you a little about myself. Im african american (black). 5'4 173 pounds. Ive been on the site since last year and chose to go with Dr. SALAMA for my BBL because I love his work. I am married and my husband supports me 100% with this, infact hes paying for it, he says an unhappy wife equals an unhappy home which equals an unhappy him. I have 2 beautiful children but unfortunately they have taken all my beauty from me. I used to model before I had kids all up until my 2nd child 1year ago and boy has she done a job on my body. Ive been anxiously waiting for the time to come. I tried to get financed but my credit sucks. Lmao even the alternative route wouldent except my credit. Smh yeah its thats bad.

Okay so im trying to upload beforw photos, can...

Okay so im trying to upload beforw photos, can someone please tell me how from my phone?

Still trying to figure out how to upload pictures...

Still trying to figure out how to upload pictures of my poor lil body. I am craving this dang surgery and march cant come fast enough. I must admit I done went shopping for clothes already to fit my new body, my intentions was to buy myself jeans that fit now because im a queen of leggings. I wear a size 9 smh ive never worn a 9 until after I had my 2nd child last year. I want a ass thats bigger than my breast and makes them look small. Im a 38dd naturally. My stomach is not huge but its big to me. I mostly hate the back rolls. I have no hips and a tiny bit of ass. Smh guys look at my face and fall in love, but look at my body and its quickly over. Smh my husband says he loves it but for someone who you to model and turn heads, I miss that and im not happy with my body. Hes very supportive and said either way he loves me. When I first planned for the procedure I said I want a natural looking butt, my husband said hes not gonna waste his time and hard earned money for me not to get the extreme. So im going with the extreme because I dident realise that some of the fat does not make it. Anyone thats all for now.

Hey ladies so im starting to eat sleep and breath...

Hey ladies so im starting to eat sleep and breath this damn bbl, I find myself looking at everyones booty, and some people look at me like im bi cause they catch me looking. Lol amd I cant tell them why. Lol my husband evem said he notices it. Its to the point where I be wondering how many of my fb friends have gotten bbls.

Im going for my surgery on march 5th and looking for a cheap hotel, I dont wanna pay 1500 for a room. Someone help.

Officially 1 month out until my date with Salama March 5th!!!!! I cant wait to get my body back!!!! I am still looking for afordable housing for 9 days March 4th through march 12th Does anyone one have any suggestions. I keep reading post about people who pay 350-700 for 9 days all the hotels I have found are starting at 900-1200 I am open to condo, studio apts etc. HELP!!!!!
I sent you an inbox...have you tried can get a comfy condo for a min of 500 if its available.
I have a date of March 4th- and I got my condo on too! Lots of options, and some really great prices too. Good luck ;)
@smile9, I cant stand it. And shopping is a no go. @brandnew414, thank you soo much, ive literally been looking for days. Is there anything I should need to take with me that is not on salamas list in the packet. Im looking crazy running in circles. @KM.REBEL, im going to look into that now, thank you, are you nervous?

So ive finally found a lovely place to stay, but...

So ive finally found a lovely place to stay, but the closer it gets to my date the more nervous and paranoid I seem to be. I cant even sleep at night because im so darn nervous. Thank you ladies for responding to my post on suggestions because I was having such a hard time. Any ladies have suggestions on the best garment to give me the best results for a tiny waste? I had lipo before but I dident need drains, they dident tell me about extra garments or any massages, so this is all new to me.
hey girl! could you give me the information on that villa you found? im looking for places now too. I know you feel like a weight lifted off your shoulders after getting the villa squared away :-)
I sent you a pm to your inbox, is the site, your rates will be way cheaper I'm going during peak season so most prices are doubled during June you can get 9 days for probably 350
wow thanks girl! I will email the owner now!

I'm trying to figure out how a person who gets a...

I'm trying to figure out how a person who gets a bbl should sleep the days after surgery I'm told not to sleep on your stomach and others say not on your back im trying to get nice hips to so that rules out sleeping on my side lol so what do you do?
Hmm I don't think I've heard anything about not sleeping on tummy, as a matter of fact my Dr, didnt want me to use pillows under tummy just to lay straight on tummy on bed, at least for first wk. I layed on my tummy straight w nothing but the pillow for my head up until my 3rd wk. now I sleep like how Brandnew414 said;) I still wake up stiff n pain in lower back:( perhaps I'm not walking enough.... But yes Hunnie sleeping is a pain n gets very frustrating;( but soon we will b over this healing stage n left w a nicer body than b4 it it will b worth the pain! At least for most..... God Bless;)
I sleep with a body pillow I fold it in half length wise so it's a little higher. I lay on my stomach and with 1 leg on the pillow and one flat on the bed. It tricks my body into thinking I'm on my side. Hope it works for u because sleeping is tough.
Is that what you did the day of surgery

I'm just 24 days out nervous trying to make sure...

I'm just 24 days out nervous trying to make sure evening is in order. Can yall give me suggestions on what I should bring with me and what I should get there?
I live in Hollywood Fl. Im 5 min away from Dr. Salama. I want to get the BBL done as well. I go for my consult on Feb 13th, 2013. e mail me at
That's close that's good for you to be able to get work done and see him regularly
Im also african american; 43yr . We must keep in touch becaue if there is anything that I could do to help you in any way I will. I understand that you are from out of town.

As the days are getting closer I find myself...

As the days are getting closer I find myself getting more and more frustrated with all the things I need to pack and or buy, also im seeing special garments and waist cinchers that people are using to give a small waste but I need the best one. So far on my list is, dresses. Lol

My bad, swipe got it all messed up, 'waist'

Just 18 days out and the nerves are kicking in, I think I finally realized this is really going to happen (had to wait and make sure my income tax return was going to be what I expected, I ain't Ballin like the rest of yall lol) now everything is in order flight, hotel etc...

Now just making sure my check list for what to bring on the trip, I know I need 3 maxi dresses, (I hear there is a nice store by Dr Salamas office that's really cheap anyone else heard about this Store)

I hear the first 3 days are hell, I plan on getting a urinal to save myself the pain of late night bathroom trips,

I plan on cutting the bottom out of a chair to sit in while I'm there (got that from a fellow rs member)

I know they give me 2 garments at the office should I wait to get a third when I get home? I hear vette is good and others faja what do yall think

Been telling everyone on Facebook for 2 months now im I'm the gym working on my body (really I was gaining weight I want the max in my booty and need hips) I keep hearing 3000cc is through max but I thought it was 4000 Edgar have yall heard?
I wonder what store that is I haven't heard about that
I'll make sure to let you know as soon as I get the info
Ok thanks hun

I found a massage therapist company that provides mobile messages to the Miami Beach area including Aventura, hollandale, Hollywood area, they have 12 messieurs and 4 specialize in lymphatic drainage messages, I hear that the lymphatic drainage is the best for our post op for our procedure
How much is it
The lymphatic drainage is 120 for 60 mins I'm working on a Dr. Salama discount but hey it's worth it they come to you set up the table not a lot of driving bumps and discomfort

I like the vette 340 because of the support but my breast are way to big for that I plan on going for the max 1400cc each cheek so I don't think booty out garments will work what do yall suggest? Is there a breast out version of the vette 340
I mean vedette 340
The 120 is the discount?
No I'm working on a discount now

I cant believe I'm this close to being Salamafied...

I cant believe I'm this close to being Salamafied I'm going to Fl on March 4, will be there til at least the 13(may stay til the 15th)

Who else is going to be there during those dates we should all get together for lunch or something
Good luck with everything. In just 3 days post opt Bastille very swollen but, I can see the roundness in my booty. To be honest I was going for am aggressive Lipo in my stomach & back & a little butt to compliment my waist. I'm also in my last semester of graduate school so I know that feeling around planning. Keep us updated. Oh the urinal is my new BFF. Even my boyfriends loves it. He has been super supportive
Thank you, yeah I go back tob school in april

I was so worried because I was told to come into the office the day before the surgery, but all my flights got there at 4pm(and we all know larry is never on time, bless his heart) so I called Nancy with my concern so they are letting me come in at 9pm on the day of surgery to take care of paper work my surgery is 2pm :) I am so excited.

I am still nervous, looking at others results have helped allot, I have decided to take the pain of the ride and go to message envy for my messages, the they quoated me $175 for 3 (plus the 2 at dr. Salamas totals 5) I will get a message every other day I am there.

I have to pray the money comes early because of the direct deposit just 2days early would be perfect everything else is paid for And half the surgery fee is already paid keepppraying for me yall starting

How long after surgery do you start wearing...

How long after surgery do you start wearing squeem, Ave what's the best place to purchase it along with boards and foam? I keep hearing about foam on the triangle above my but can someone explain?
HI there, I'm 10 weeks post op. I went to Salama also. You're asking about the foams and board. They provide you all with that so don't panic. Also.. don't pack a lot. You're not going to want to be dressed while recovering. You definitely do not need undies. I never wore any. Also, I wouldn't take a wife beater bcuz that will mark up your stomach. They want a tight fitting smooth t-shirt. Good luck on your journey. You will be happy with Salama, he's very friendly and listens. Go in with real expectations ;-) where did you find your villa through? I am wanting to go back and see Salama for a tummy tuck but want to bring my kids the next time so they can enjoy the beach. Where I stayed, we didn't have the beach & it was only 1 bedroom. I have a consultation in Houston but if I don't like his work then Salama it is ;)
I got it on home away I will send you a link in a private message
Thanks :)

I have been reading how horrible the rides are too...

I have been reading how horrible the rides are too and from the office after surgery I decided to mapquest my villa to the office, just 5 miles away and virtually straight shot. I may just catch a cab instead of waiting on Larry
The foams will be placed for you and u can just replicate it on your own. I believe the board u start at 2 wks post op. the squeem I wear on top of my garment and I started that at 2 wks but u can ask dr. S when he suggests that. Good luck w everything .
Thank you the nerves are kicking now
Hi guerabooty. Since u have been thru this any suggestions on sleeping other than on ur stomach? Also about how long til u felt like u could actually move somewhat normally?

I dont know why im nervous, ive been under...

I dont know why im nervous, ive been under anesthetia so many times that I lost count, but this particular time, im really nervous. Well im nervous everytime but still. Has anyone else felt this way before going in? I think about this so much that its giving me a headache.
I'm just ready! Lol
It's all normal about how you're feeling. You'll be ok. Dr Salama has a great crew in the surgery room.
Hello Im definitely part of the nervous, scared and anxious crew! Dr S is a great PS so i know u will be fine..

My bags are packed I am ready to go!!! Still...

My bags are packed I am ready to go!!! Still nervous though. I still dont know if I need squeem the 9 days I am there or if I should just order it when I get back? do I really need any other garments or squeem while I am in Miami? I NEED THE BBL VETS HELP
Good luck:)
Congrats girls 6 days is real talk !!!!!! :-)) my prayer and much luck to you!

The same thing happened to my husband he was audited I faxed all of his documents n they released part of his return n he Rec'd it w/in 3days. It just depends on ur examiner.

Wow, that's beautiful!

I'm so excited, nervous and any other happy feeling you can think of...
If you have followed my story you know this last week has been an emotional roller coaster for me. My surgery was on then off then on then off now it is completely paid for and I'm so happy

The ladies at Dr. Salamas office are amazing Cynthia spent All day setting up an electronic transfer account with United Medical financing so now you can get financed and they get paid in a day (ask for Chris he is amazing)

I filled out the application on line Thursday morning Chris sent me an approval email 30 minutes later. I called him explained my surgery was Tuesday and he Said "don't worry we will get this done for you" and they did.

Now that everything is paid for I can focus on last minute packing and making sure everything is in order (well actually my husband is doing all that) he has a membership with massage envy set up and 3 extra massages for while I'm in Florida totaling 5 in Florida then 10 more set up at the massage envy in my town. Plan on ordering a new garment at 2 weeks (the vedette thong) its really nice and you can where it with anything. All I have to do is heal, I have a wonderful Dr. Here and she knows all about my surgery so she will give me a prescription for pain or anything else and my medical will cover it when I get back.

I leave Monday morning at 5am to go to Florida and my surgery is Tuesday can't wait to see all my March BBL sisters allot of us are getting together on the 12 or 13th

Finally did my measurements 38DDD- 37-44 as you...

Finally did my measurements 38DDD- 37-44 as you can see I'm top heavy with no hips I would love to be 36-28-48 I need booty to match these boobs
We have sx on the same day but with different doctors. Good luck hun.
where is the villa u and family will be staying at
Holly wood just 5 miles from dr. S office

I'm so ready to go, everything is in order flight...

I'm so ready to go, everything is in order flight leaves at 5 am tomorrow

Because booty4days was willing to change days with me (ended up not having to and she goes in on the same day) I decided to pay it forward, I have an extra room at the villa and actually was leaving before my reservation was up so now my bbl sister SNATCHED is going to share a few days with us then take over the remaining 8 days (a win win)

I'm calling Dr S office tomorrow and see if they will let my husband record my going in and coming out the surgery as much as possible so yall can really see what's going on.

We plan on meeting up with BBL sisters on the 10th and 13th if yall in town in box info we may do lunch or something

That's all for now
Many blessings on your journey!
im excited for you!! good luck

Hello this is her husband she is out cold but she wanted me to update her blog

Her surgery went well the nurse said they removed the Max and added 1500cc's to each side I don't know what that means but her butt is GINORMOUS

She Thanks all of you for well wishes and will add pix tomorrow after her post op appointment

2:30am day 1 post op

She is doing well, she gets really light headed when she stands (the paperwork says it means she needs more food and water) made her chicken noodle soup, and a smoothy (yogurt, strawberries, bananas, cantaloupe, and pineapples)

She is feeling burning around her incisions and her butt, she takes percacet Endy 3 hours (she does not do well with pain ) and extra strength Tylenol every 4 hours she is feeling pain only at about a 3 out of 10

Showed her pictures of her butt she loves it

She Also all the well wishes and prayers almost made her cry (looking forward to meeting the bbl sisters on the 10th and 13th)

That's all for now
:-)) thanks for the update !!! Happy to know u are well and resting xoxo
Oh woooow...can't wait to see you standing really look good.

Day 2
My husband has been a help Thanks for all the well wishes

Last night was actually not that bad I slept they woke me up every two hours to pee and eat and drink (you have to eat and drink and walk if you want to get better) I did get really dizzy when standing I passed out once (it's normal) took percs every 4 hours (nurse aid I can take every 2 hours if needed) I like to stay ahead of the pain

Went to see Dr S for post op appointment and finally got to look in the mirror of all this ASS I got yes lawd..... He said most of the 1500 went in each cheek my hips skin was too tight so he couldn't give me big hips (I am fine with all this boootaaay and he did really good on getting fat out my back) the nurse gave me cspri sun because I felt faint (the sugar helps)

Set up my first massage for Friday

Then back to the hotel

Ok I am feeling great and since I slept all night...

Ok I am feeling great and since I slept all night I am wide awake

The staff at Elite Plastic Surgery are the absolue best!!!!! they take special care of you like you are the only client there.

Dr. Salama is the perfect Surgen he does not rush you and he answers all of your questions aswell as giving you realistic expectations for your results

They give you everything you need, they provide the boppy, compression socks, slipper socks and arnica pills( I was looking everywhere for the pills) They told me Arnica gel is only good for scrapes and cuts on the skin, but the pills work under the skin(SO YOU MAY NOT NEED TO PURCHASE THE GEL)

I have used a couple of bandaids(for my incesions) but really nothing else out of the medical supplies, I am eating allot of pinapples and taking my vitamins

Dr. S told me not to use my squeem for 1 to 2 weeks and when I do to wear it over my garment not under(so it was no need to bring it or purchase before I came)

I am in love with the female urinal it works wonder got it at walmart for 5.99

I cant wait till the 10th I told Ruben about the REAL SELF BBL luncheon we are having and they where excited said take pictures ( he joked about showing up lol)

I really love the staff the experience has been great and I love my BOOOOTTTAAAY he did an amazing job on my back and stomach as well I am still in aww of the 1500cc's i told him i want the biggest booty i could get with nice shelf and projection( I figured if I go big any loss will be ok)

Ill post pix after I take a shower later today or tomorrow depending on how these drugs kick in Ladies stay ahead of the pain take 1 perc every 2 hours or 2 percs every 4 hours dont let it catch up with you also take tylenol( my face swole up my eyes are so tight)
Hi ms lady, you are looking great! Your body will be as fabulous as your attitude. Cant wait to meet up!
Very happy 4u sis! Clearly you are in the BEST of hands--nothing like having a supportive spouse. I'm gonna make sure my husband takes some notes!
Thanks for the update glad to hear your doing well!!!

Just left my 3rd massage cicilia is amazing (it hurts but she knows what she is doing). She expanded my slit so would not have to take it off for bowel movements.

Then Dr Salama came in, the first thing he said is "that is allot of booty" lol we all laughed he asked if I had questions told me how to remove the drains and wrote a prescription authorizing me to stand on the flight home. Gave everyone hugs now I'm downstairs waiting on larry (rent a car people)

Wow!!! U look great Salama did the dam thing I hope u are enjoying and loving ur new figure cause I kno ur hubby is lol.... HAPPY HEALING ;)

Ok that has been a good day brought a new dress to start the day. My husband took out my front drain(it is so long inside you). Took some pictures in my new dress with no foam (I took my garment off to wash and shower so I put the larger garment on with no foam). Then off to my first massage at the massage Envy here where I live. Celia let my husband video my last massage with her to show how it should be done (I really love her she was stuck a help). I showed her the video explained it probably would hurt but I wanted it done that way, she said she got it and went to work, I mean went to Work! She did it perfectly it hurt lint hell but I felt great after. Its only 39 per massage I set 3 up a week for three next month then 2 a week after

I love my results!
Love that snake print are workin it;)
U look amazing that dress with the one arm is hot!!!
Reply look gorgeous in that pretty! So wonderful to hear that you're not in a whole lot of pain....hope the swelling steadily improves

This is bothering me, my right leg is so swollen...

This is bothering me, my right leg is so swollen it hurts to stand up for longer periods of time, also my arm and hand be going numb alot. I lay down and have to position my arm the same way everyday so it don't go numb. Does anyone else have this issue?

So its day 12, heres a rundown. The first week I...

So its day 12, heres a rundown. The first week I went through 3 garments. I was sent hime in the tightest garment possible and he doubled up on all my phone so my garment looked like seams were going to bust and ribs were moving. Lol I dident wanna take it off so for 3 days straight I kept it on, I even washed up in my garment. Yes. I dident wet the foam, just washed my lady parts and blow dried it all. After 3 days I took it off, my husband removed my front drain, I took a shower, we washed the garment and while waiting I put on the bigger garment anf my waist cincher on as tight as possible until I felt no difference. I got a massage( hurt like hell still).. than put my garment and foams back on which was still really tight, but now for some reason today, it feels really lose. So im gonna wear my waist cincher over the garment and foams until my board and sqeem come. Im able to move around alot and feel fine, no pain just stiffness when I wake up, I be wanting to do stuff but cant because I cannot sit down anywhere in public. Lol and of course I look retarded in flip flops and compression socks when its cold as hell here. Lmao. I use a heating pad at night before I go to sleep and also a massaging pad on my stomach for when im kneeling on my knees leaning up against my couch to watch tv, its comfortable and helps alot. I rarely have to do anything, because my husband still does everything for me. Thank god for him. Oh before I forget, ladies I had my husband record the massages I w. Getting I florida so that when I got home and went to massage envy I could show the specialist how it needed to be done. I got to my appointment, showed her the videi and told her, I will cry and scream and whatever else as you see in my video, but do not stop. Its crazy because thid lady did my massage just like they did in florida, the exact same way. Oh I was in pain but glad she could do it. I felt so much relief when I left her office, she hit all the areas that fluid was building up and she even sounded like them when she said oh you can see the fluid shifting and moving im going to get it out, and she did. My skin was as smooth as a babys bottom when she got done. Not 1 lump or side roll. Also the placement of the foam is very important, being that dr salama doubled up on mines and placed some right under my arms to prevent thr rolls from coming back, I had my husband also record how the foams was placed in my garment so that he could do it right when I did remove it all. The videos really saved me.
great ideas , I didn't think to record the video
I hope the sweeling goes down keep us posted and thanks soo much for all the updates they really help us know what to spect when our time comes to get surgery :)
My arms go numb every night if they aren't by my side. My left leg is alot more swollen then my right. It's really annoying.

Today is day 14, I'm still dealing with leg...

Today is day 14,

I'm still dealing with leg selling (I hate it)
I hate not being able to sit, I didn't think it would be so hard.

The good thing is I am off the percs (except the days of massages)

My butt is starting to soften around the edges, my Garment is not as tight, I ordered my squeem in a small, my vedette 128 ordered in a medium (they say they run small)

I will probably start wearing my waist cincher on wed after my Massage (I get 3 a week) LADIES RECORD YOUR MASSAGE SO YOU CAN SHOW YOUR MASSAGE THERAPIST WHAT YOU NEED

that's all for now

I few people twisted me to send my massage video, I showed it to my massage therapist at home and she does it just like at the office

***I don't do well with any pain so I am crying and moaning, don't be scared you feel great afterwards***

I will upload the front and Back massage I also have video of her putting my garment and foam on

I received a call from Dr. S. TODAY, just to check on me(it's amazing he took the time, just shows what type of Dr he is)

I told him about the swelling in my legs and the numbness in my hand, he said swelling is normal unless one leg gets way bigger then the other if that happens go get an ultrasound for blood clots

He said the numbness will go away as well

I told him about the veddette 128 being a thong with no leg compression he said if I did not have thigh compression I can wear it when I'm ready, he said I can also wear squeem or corset when I'm ready as well just wear over garment

I went to my 6 th massage today she is great she has really worked wonders especially where the fluid was trying to build up on my flanks and back (where all the rolls used to be) my back and side is almost completely smooth

My stomach is so flat my board should be here by Wed and it will be smooth

I had my corset in a med but now it is too big luckily my small squeem just got here today my waist is tiny its a 27/28 that's a 10 inch difference

I love my booty, it's perfect no complaints here
Hey girl! You are healing beautifully! I have 5 more weeks for surgery and still struggling to gain weight. Sigh. Anyway, were did you get that waist cincher? I want one that ties like yours so I can squeeze it as tight as I need to, but cant find one.

I'M happy with my stomach yet it is Flat but not smooth yet I have not received my board they say tomorrow once I smooth it out with the board I will be a happy camper

My husband is in heaven he still rubs my coco butter on my booty daily and says "oooh my previous" in the creature from Lord of the rings voice (yes I let him hit it doggy style one time, he don't know how to act so he gotta wait for that position lol)

My clothes look amazing on me I have plenty of shopping to do my measurements are 36-28-47 1\2

I need help starting a part 2 does anyone know how?

I uploaded pix of my first day showing off my new booty 24 days po the reaction was crazy I got stares and complements now to see how people who see me all the time react at school tomorrow

So my abdominal board has not arrived yet so I...

So my abdominal board has not arrived yet so I emailed Dr. S because I was irritated, he emailed back immediately, he assured me it was mailed out Wed. He gave me instructions on how to make my own out of a shoe box top until mine arrived (I wished I had asked him a week ago smh)

Here is how it goes:

Take the shoe box top place it under your breast and Mark down to your pubic area. Then cut the edges to round them and place it directly on my skin under my garment (he said I should no longer be wearing a shirt under my garment)

I added pix
damn you have ass for days! you are working those leggings you look great
I forgot to mention in my update but I did get my board I received it on Thursday. You are across the country compared to me in the same state but I would think you should have yours by Monday. Tuesday at the latest. I didn't know we shouldn't be wearing a shirt under garmet anymore though so that's news to me. Good news
I always wear the cami underneath..did he say why its not good?

Ugh, ive been itching like crazy and cant help but...

Ugh, ive been itching like crazy and cant help but to scratch, rub and put more hydrocortisone on every where. I will admit, I scratch my ass. But I do it after I put on lotion so im not messing up the skin. 2 more weeks and I cannot wait to sit down. As of now, I still dont sit on my boppy pillow, I lay in the back seat and my husband pretty much drives me everywhere or I dont go. I sleep on a layer of pillows to keep my back from hurting, my feet elevated, my knees from being sore and my head at the same level as my body. I get irritated with the garments at night, but I take a ibuprofen and go to sleep. I only take them off to shower and hand wash them, and dry them, or to get massage, which my husband has also learned how to do, so in between time of shower and waiting on garment to dry, he massages me like my messuse showed him with the q10 lotion and arnica gel all over. I still go to massage envy 2 times a week but in between time, he can do it. Hes so wonderful, hes been trying his best to make sure that im happy and its always worked. I lovr him dearly, he has no idea I couldent have remained positive without him. Of course we tried sex a few times, he said he cant not look at me without getting hard, which is true. Lol tmi... oh before I go am I the only one that wakes up everyday asking if my butt is still big? Lol he measured me again today so I would shut up. Its still the same size at 4wks.
I still havent gotten anyyy massages and smoothe shapes r way to expensive (8 for 1000 dollars) and massage envy tellin me i need a drs note did they tel u that??
Each massage envy is different but I was not asked for a note in aventura or here at home, just google local lymphatic drainage massage you should be able to find a cheaper one
you look great dr s did his considering him however im in new orleans would like a dr a lil closer also considering dr cortes he in tx however he is more expensive question for anyone is do dr base there quote on a pt size...

Today is officially week 4 I'm excited today...

Today is officially week 4

I'm excited today is my first day back at school, I'm nervous because I have 2 more weeks before I can sit di I have to bring my boppy to school for 2 weeks. I have never sat on my boppy for more then 15 mins. Lucky I only have class on Tuesday and Thursdays

I love my body my stomach is starting to tighten my waist is super small I'm ordering a small garment tomorrow (should be my final garment)
Compression is the key you need to wear the tightest Garment you can handle and get messages twice a week atleast (I do 3 times a week) I go Tighter on my garment almost every 3 days, (for instance start with looser clasps in 3 days move to the tighter clasps, then in 3 days add more foam, then corset then Tighter garment starting with looser clasp, then Smaller squeem etc.) I have been through 2 garments(in the 3rd garment now) a corset, and now in a small squeem over my 3rd garment waist was a 37 now a 27

My measurements are 36-27-47

I can't wait for fluffing to happen
Your back and waist look amazing!

Compression, diet and exercise is the key to a smaller waist. I keep going smaller and smaller, when it gets lose I go tighter immediately, I keep my garment on 24hrs a day, 7 days a week unless its time for a message or shower. I take percs for the message and percs for the first 2 days after going into a tighter garment. Also I use foam to make it even tighter in some areas as I want my results to last. .. im in love!!!!
So did you just have fat transferred or implants. Your results are amazing girl!
How long did you stanf during your flight home?


For some reason I can post pix here but not on my part2

I don't know what is going on with real self but it won't let me add pix on part 2 of my review so I will be posting here till they fix it


I'm day 3 of my juice cleans and I feel great
Can you give me the information on the massage company please
Wowwee!!! Looking great!

hubby calls this cakes in the kitchen

Girl you got Cake on top of Cake!
Sorry just realised i already asked you this but id still like to know where they sucked the fat from. Im hoping I can get my ass like this with just body fat
From my stomach, flanks And back, I have more oz on part 2 of my review from 1 MONTH to 9 months,

This cleanse and working out

Has my legs getting smaller but my butt looks bigger but I still just 48"
Thanks hun

Maybe I'm trippin

On the left from Nov 8 right from Dec 10th does my butt look bigger
I must say your body is amazing and your transformation is out of this world, Im going team salama and cant wait to put my deposit down and book my date......I need a nice size but but know as big as yours lol im not sure how many CC's i should consider getting for the surgery and i want a super flat stomach
the number of CCS really depends on how much your skin will take so I would not worry about counting numbershe is really good at getting stomachs really flat so you should be great
In which one you think it looks bigger? Imo is on the left. Becareful with cleansing i wouldnt do it longer than couple days. I did once and lost a lot of muscle and so did my friend. We humans are omnivorus we need protein for our muscles

I've lost 5 lbs in 5 days juicing

And Exercises, I juice for breakfast and lunch and have a light dinner and it is working gotta keep it tight
I think it looks bigger nov 8th but it depends on the clothes too.
It might be the angle Too I'll post another picture after I go out tonight lol
yes im excited so far just the thought of it i know it will probably another 8 months to a year before i am able to but i want to update with pics to show my progress

Me and hubby killed it last night

We stunted on them

9 months po (go to part 2 for 1 MONTH to 9 months)

Real self still trippin
Oooo girl you look hot hot hot, and you guys are so color coordinated :)
Thank you we like to coordinate
You look fabulous.....

Stay waist training

My Take on Salama and these burns


 I think it is unfortunate, I personally think it was because he was doing something different trying to be extra extra aggressive, either way Dr Salama had taken complete responsibility for his patients well being any errors he mskes he does 3 of these a day and out of hundreds only a couple issues like this, knowing him since this Happened he probably will never have the issue again because he takes pride in his work, this is why me and my husband are comfortable enough to still go through with his in march, he has had wonderful results since those burns hundreds of wonderful results prior.

We have to be careful to not jump on and off bandwagons, first it was jimmerson does not do good lipo, then the deaths at cipla, then the attitude and conditions sat yilys office, then the big infection scares... Each time people where going crazy switching surgeons and talking bad about them
WE ALL ARE DIFFERENT our bodies and skin react differently to the sx,

The best thing we can do is promote positive vibes and encourage healing to these sistas not this negative feeding frenzy

WELL SAID!! Everyone takes a risk when doing ANY type of Sx and sometimes things happen. But like you said, compares hundreds of great turns outs & well completed Sx vs. a handful of minor errors!
Yeah I think the burns can happen see I had then ..I think its a sign that he did a good job lol.


We havea juice for breakfast and lunch then a healthy dinner
No not at all
You and hubby brought the FIRE

Which one is bigger

Left or right
First I want to say thank you so much for what you said about the burns. I'm looking to get butt implants and was soooo ready to go to him but the pictures and everything scared the Shi#$ out of me. You really put some peace of mind back in me. :)
wow you took down all your pics, i was looking foward to looking at them
Whats a good waist cincher? Too many to choose from!
