It's been 4 weeks...since I've had my procedure....done! It's been really rough the aftercare regimens that I've created for myself...I'm changing my compression garment every other day...in as much I have 4 compression garment....the two dr Salama gave to me...Vedette 110 Vedette 136... I enjoy the one without the leggings...it give my butt a more natural look....when I go out in public...the garment give me that Donkey look...that I asked Dr Salama to get rid of...He gave me the Heart Dropped Shape I asked for...
I'm still using my Peze...it's my beastie right now...I wash my garment every other day...I keep in my purse as well..I can remember when I first had six I was pissin all ova my faja...

Itching....and not scratching....
I'm going through the Itchy itch stages...in which promotes healing....my God!!! I went to the flea market and got some Watkins Liniment...it for pain....it works!!! Really and truly...I declined to receive ...Percocet...for itching I use Benedryl gel and creme...it works instantaneously!!!
3 Days PO. 1700cc in each Cheek!!! Dr Salama....
My hemoglobin dropped extremely during six...I was in hospital for a few days...I'm the type of person that can't afford to lose a lot of blood....ipended up with blood transfusion...A Life Saver....
Before and after...I had a "Donkey Bootay" ...I requested a "Heart Dropped Bottom"
Silk and Satin...Heart Dropped Bottom...I didn't like the Donkey butt....Dr Salama did his thang...I didn't show him a wish pic...but he and I both decided that we would change so I can have more of a Feminine Shape...it's important.....we as woman of coming of age over 45 don't look right with a Big Donkey...Asssssss!!! So per my request I wanted... The Heart Dropped Bottom...and He did!!!
Chisel.....chisel....Aggressive lipo...hhhmmm It's Body Sculpting!!!
Dr Salama sculpted my body...my spouse touched my abs and said That Man gave you a Six Pack! Stomach hard as a Rock! still-swollen but there is NO FAT ...dr Salama aggressively lipid the heck out of my upper body...and even threw in my arms....first he said he could only get 830 cc out of me...but he included my arms...which gave snuff for 1700cc...per cheek..and hips..when I touch my abs I can't feel No fat...in my back I just feel bones...amazing
Compare my WISH PIC to my Heart Dropped Bottom
I wanted this ass and now I got it...this pic of me is with no undies and no garment...No More Donkey Bootay...for me...

If the Fat is Graphed properly it will become permanent....
As I told you in my timeline..li wore my for 10yrs..our bods react to the fat differently..
This is what I found on the Net...

In this blog entry I will detail how I harvest fat, process it, inject it, and care for the graft after surgery. In a subsequent entry I will describe how choice of harvest site matters.
1)- The fat has to be aspirated properly
Higher pressure suction disrupts and kills a certain percentage of fat cells. For this reason, I use a manual syringe technique, because the pressure generated by a syringe is much lower than that generated by a suction machine. Thus, right from the start, I have a higher chance of success. Is there an advantage to using a regular suction machine? Yes, it’s quicker and is less taxing to the surgeon. But its worse for the fat cells. So–If you hear of somebody doing a Brazilian Butt Lift in less than four hours, chances are the grafts may not take and his patients are coming back for touch ups.
2)- The fat has to be processed properly
I let the fat sit in a cool environment (slows down the fat cell metabolism) so the fluid separates from the fat. Then the fat is transferred to smaller syringes where it is then put in a centrifuge. The centrifuge has to spin long enough to separate fluid and contents of dead and disrupted cells from the remaining live cells, but not so long as to disrupt live cells. We then separate the live fat cells from the body fluid and contents of disrupted cells by a decanting process which does not touch the live cells. What is left is a slurry of almost 100% live cells. There are very little contaminants that may irritate the surrounding tissues. You want the recipient tissues to deal only with live cells, because any inflammation may end up destroying live cells.
3)- The fat has to be injected properly
Think of the fat graft as a tender seedling that has to be planted in the ground, but instead of the roots growing out, the “roots” (blood vessels) from the surrounding tissues grow into the fat graft. If you inject a thick wad of fat cells, the cells in the center of the wad will starve before the blood vessels reach them. Thus the fat grafts have to be injected with very fine needles in small quantities. This is a very painstaking and slow process. If you inject a lot at a time, many cells will not survive. Thus some surgeons may say “most of the fat got reabsorbed”, whereas in reality, most of the fat never took in the first place.
4)- The post operative period is as important as the surgery
I tell all my patients that they should not sit at all for three weeks after surgery. Think again of the tender seedlings. Once the fat grafts are in place, they are not likely to take root if they are being mashed on with all your body weight. You want to keep those grafts completely free of pressure until blood vessels grow into them and until those vessels are hardy enough to withstand the pressure and shearing effects of sitting on them. Wearing compression garments is very important, as they cut down swelling tremendously. When there is swelling, oxygen delivery and evacuation of toxins are impaired. This in turn reduces likelihood of fat graft cell survival.
Hopes this helps...galz
