TT & BBL Secduled for May 2012 with Dr. Salama in Aventura, Fl

Hello all! I am 30 yrs old a mother of two boys....

Hello all! I am 30 yrs old a mother of two boys. 5'1 150lbs. I carry most of my wait in my midsection. Before having kids i was very thin and hated it, after kids I'm heavy and hate it! I just want to be able to like how i look in clothes. Maybe wear a two piece swim suit!! I'm very nervous although i have some time to go... the thought of the surgery sometimes keeps me up.

Any advise on things to expect and or things i will need, would be greatly appreciated!!

Ok so please don't think I'm crazy. i just had to...

Ok so please don't think I'm crazy. i just had to change those photos, i couldn't stand to look at them! I also included some of me dressed. My family and close friends tell me i look fine...and have definitely given me the big butt title. I wish i saw what they do,but i don't!

I finally booked my flight and hotel stay!!...

I finally booked my flight and hotel stay!! Nervous is the word....i can't belive I'm really doing this!!

Omg this is becoming so real...spoke with Larry yesterday. Scared and excited all in one!!

So I'm here in Aventura FL. The flight was a little rough. Larry picked me up...he's really nice! Went to see Dr. S he explained everything. I'm going in at 7am. Scared and nervous! Please say a prayer for me!

Well I'm going in! Soon as i can i will update.

Well I'm going in! Soon as i can i will update.

Hi ladies, sorry for taking so long to post! So...

Hi ladies, sorry for taking so long to post! So I'm on day 7. It's definitely a rollercoaster ride some days good some not so good. First day out the hardest part was the nausea...it made everything else feel worse. Once i had that under control i was ok. Although i had the caregiver i was doing everything on my own. The pain is tolerable as long as you take it slow. I'm generally happy with the results. I don't know how many cc's yet. I know it's not as much as most, i didn't want to go to big. Tomorrow i get my drains removed, compression garment, and go home. Really happy to be going home! I've been on my own since day two. So I'm really home sick! I want to thank a fellow realselfer who was here at the same time. She and her mother were angels! She was a great support! Thank you! It's kinda hard to got at it alone. Anyway wasn't able to post pics just yet but i will when i get home. Thank you everyone for the prayers and well wishes. I needed them! So i'll be posting again reall soon.

So here are some 9 day pics. I'm a little upset...

So here are some 9 day pics. I'm a little upset cause he put 1100cc in each. I didn't want that much and I told him that...but whats done is done! Just hope it don't stay so big. Today i feel kinda good. I think its because I'm home..yay!! Doing a little more everyday! I'm sure i will be happy with the finished result but i could never and would never again!! Maybe its because i was alone. It took a toll on me emotionally and mentally! And now I'm stuck with this globe on my back!! Lol, we had discussed 800cc. But again cant go back now. Thank you all that supported me and if there's anything you'd like to ask please do. I will continue to update as time goes on.

So I'm on day #2 in the hospital. I came ro the ER...

So I'm on day #2 in the hospital. I came ro the ER to have a little pouch of fluid aspirated and it turned out i had an infection. So i was admitted. This sucks everyone is treating me like taboo. They told me that I'm fine i just have to wait ro see the plastic surgeon they called in. I'm hoping he's willing to aspirate this fluid. Wish me luck!

Hi ladies, I'm home they let me go yesterday w/ a...

Hi ladies, I'm home they let me go yesterday w/ a Rx for antibiotics. I feel good. Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes. I just want to make clear that this in no way was something that involved any wrong doing on Dr. Salamas part. This is just one of the risks and it comes with the territory. In no way did he promise perfection. Yes it is scary but at the end of the day i did this to myself! With that being said again I'm feeling good and hoping for a smooth healing process moving forward.

Can anyone tell me when my butt will begin to...

Can anyone tell me when my butt will begin to shrink? Just tried on shorts from last summer and my ass looks huge. I don't like it...it's too much! And I haven't notice any shrinkage! So if anyone knows when it will begin please enlighten me. It's already begun to soften. I'm wondering if women that already had ahead start in the butt area, dose the fat stay better? Hoping that's not the case! You all are probably think I'm crazy!

Hello all, sorry for the delay! So Im 4 months out...

Hello all, sorry for the delay! So Im 4 months out...I feel good still swollen a bit in the tummy. And haven't regained all my feeling on my left side yet. Lipoed areas are soft and feel normal. The left upper part of my stomach is still very swollen. Not sure why...maybe both side don't heal at the same exact time. Any how I do like very much how my clothing fits. All my old stuff still fits me, its just looser on my waist. I haven't had to buy anything new. My butt looks a bit fuller but Im measuring the same as before surgery. Over all Im happy with the out come...but if I could go back I still would not have done it. Just my personal feelings about it! Good luck to all that are looking to do it. Word of advice don't hope to look like someone else...weather you go through with it or not if you don't love you before this...surgery wont change that!!!
