Living in Miami with nothing but gorgeous shapely woman, having a great body is a must. I'm 5'9" 25 yrs old and all my life I've felt insecure about having NO-ASS at all. Finally, 6 months after having a baby I decided I wanted to do something about my insecurities. No matter how much you workout, diet, squat, nothing will ever build a nice plump butt. You have it or you don't- and I certainly didnt.
Consulting with Dr.Salzhauer is one of the best things I've ever done for myself. He is warm, comforting, and clearly a true artisan of his craft. Ladies trust me when I say -he knows what he's doing!
So far its been to weeks and my results are stellar. Dr. Salzhauer did an amazing job. I must say I am more than impressed. I received 1,000 cc's in each cheek and I also added hips to the procedure as well. His staff is warm, kind and they're all gorgeous (with amazing bodies too, lucky girls). I'm so glad Dr. S doesn't utilize drains, he lets the body do what it does :) Recovery has been a bit uncomfortable not being able to sit or lay down on my back, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Luckily, I have friends who have had a BBL done before in Columbia and with they've referred me to an amazing lymphatic masseuse who owns her own Spa. Her name is Elena and she is amazing!!! The techniques and instruments she uses to dissolve scar tissue, bruising and inflammation are essential to healing and getting the end result you want (please inbox me for her info if interested). Wearing a proper fitting garments and getting your messages are so important! Although the doctor does the bulk of the work the maintenance such as diet and message is up to us.
My confidence has sky rocketed through and roof and I'm already feeling so confident in my clothes. I did this surgery for myself (and my hubby too) but I've never really craved attention and this has definitely made me a show stopper, its a bit uncomfortable for me. I guess I'll get use to it. Being around social settings is another concern since I was as flat as a board before and now suddenly I've got an ass.... I know I'll raise some eye brows around "friends", so I've decided to pull a celeb move and disappear for a little bit.
Hi ladies so far so good. I've been sitting on my...

It get easier everyday. The garment is so important as are the messages. Breaking down scar tissue, reducing inflammation, etc is so important. If any of you ladies are interested please PM me. I'd be glad to pass along my message therapists info, she's AMAZING!!!!
I do find it a bit difficult to break my pre op eating habits... fatty foods are not for post op. Finding it hard to switch to salads when Im used to eating fast food at 2:00 am to gain weight. I cannot wait to get back in the gym and perfect what I have.
Hi ladies!!! I've been SOOOO sick for some reason....
- 6 Feb 2013
I was so sick I had to have my mother-in-law take care of me and my son for the past few days last week. But when I got home Sunday morning there was a beautiful boutique of flowers sent from Dr.Salzhauer waiting for me on my coffee table. Talk about feeling special *BIG SMILE*
Can't think of the last time anyone has sent me such a beautiful bouquet. Thank you Dr.Salzhauer and team xoxo!!
I have to say I am so glad I was strongly encouraged and persuaded by Yasmine of Dr.Salzhauer's office. Many times when I couldn't get through to a coordinator she was there to provide ample emotional support. Ladies, we all know how emotional and hectic this journey can be and it was so nice to have someone as comforting, sweet and professional as her (if you can't get through to a coordinator ask for her she's the best!). Aside from the doctor himself, Yasmin and Miriam(his nurse) have made this experience a truly remarkably smooth and comforting one for me. Friends and family have been so impressed with my review and results they are seeking Dr.Salzhauer for their own future procedures. I want everyone to know what a great doctor he is. I couldn't care who knows that I've gotten plastic surgery, I don't care about the stigma of "you've had plastic surgery" either. I love my body and I truly love how I feel. I cannot tell you what this has done for my confidence and self-esteem.... and the hubby L-O-V-E-S it too. I wish I would have done this sooner so that I could tell everyone about my journey on a day by day basis. But better now than never, gotta thanks Yasmin for the push.
I've decided today was the day to meet up with a friend and SIT for coffee. My booty was just fine lol It didn't shrink or deflate... It felt a little sore but it was all good. I have another appointment with my message therapist Elena. She has a new XS fitted faja for me along with another ultra cavitation and cupping message. It's starting to feel so good. For all you ladies who were interested she does travel and she can meet up with you at her spa. (Elena of Dolce Vita Body 954-851-2855) I am currently still eating pineapple on a daily basis for my dose of Bromelain and drinking Chamomile tea. Elena gave me a great remedy for swelling and bruising. Take the skin of a pineapple, boil it and drink it like a tea. It's properties promote skin elasticity, significant reduction of swelling and bruising.
I will continue to keep everyone posted if anymore tips or information arises. Until then xoxo!
So today I had my follow up appointment at the Dr...

She utilizes vacuum therapy which also provides lymphatic drainage - the vacuum stimulates lymphatic movement which assists with the muscle tone and increases blood circulation. The vigorous action of the massage helps break the bonds between fat cells and flush away cellulite. It helps to greatly reduce cellulite, swelling, bruising, water retention, fatty tissue, and promotes the healing process after surgery, firm the skin tissues, increase blood circulation, and eliminate impurities and toxins from the deeper layers of the skin.
Along with vacuum therapy she uses an Ultra Cavitation machine. It melts the fat cells and provides faster results and permanent elimination of fat from the body. She always advises me to drink plenty of water because the content is metabolized by the liver and excreted in the urine.
Also- I am clear to workout, sit down, I assume sleep on my back and resume to my normal activities. SO HAPPY :)
Let me start off by saying, normally I would never...

Before writing this post on RS, it was a rarity to find any testimonials on Dr.S let alone his BBL patients. I hope I've helped those of you who were looking for a doctor like him. He deserves the upmost recognition for his quintessential degree of skill, professionalism and breadth of work.
We're not a number or a paycheck. To him and his staff we're people who want to make a change in our life and they understand. He acknowledges that it takes a lot of courage and even a lifestyle adjustment- but knows that it's not only to improve our bodies but our confidence and self-esteem. Today I spoke to Rosy, the office manager, who made me feel so special! I was brought to tears. I am so thankful I choose a great place to get surgery!
I recently scheduled a consultation for my Mom who was impressed how beautifully he shaped me. She recently lost 65lbs. and has gone through a painful divorce with my father whom she was married to for 26 years. After 4 kids, a recent cancer scare and a very sad and painful divorce, she deserves this. I know that he will change my mother's perception of herself and her life. She has gone through a lot and I know he'll make her feel and look like the beautiful woman she really is.
On another note, I saw Elena today. These messages are starting to feel sooooo good lol. So today she used a message that exercised my butt while getting a lymphatic message, ultra cavitation and vacuum therapy. Not a bad day at all.

I do have to make a confession. I am a bit caught off guard by the attention I've been getting lately. I'm not use to people looking at my body because it actually looks good. The other day I was getting ready for Bikram Yoga and my husband made me change because he thought I was trying to show off my new butt, until finally he realized that no matter how much I changed my butt was still going to be B-I-G lol... sorry honey :)
Everyone only hears reviews of popular doctors on this site so I hope I've helped those of you debating on seeing Dr.Salzhauer. I've never met a doctor, let alone a person as amazing as him. I love how I look in the mirror and I feel so good about myself. There is no substitution for this feeling. I did this surgery for me and it's a life changing event. The first few weeks were hard but well worth it. If there's anyone considering Dr.Salzhauer please send me a message if you'd like to talk. I know that there aren't a lot of reviews or testimonials about him but please know I am proof of his beautiful work. I am more than thrilled I to have him do my surgery, he is my doctor for life and I couldn't be happier. His staff is just as comforting, understanding and compassionate as the Doctor himself. I will continue to update my results as time goes to show everyone the results not for a couple of weeks but longterm. XOXO
So.... I am 7 weeks post-op and I have burned the...

Dr.Salzhauer does a great job sculpting, perfecting, molding, and shaping your body. Please be assured that aftercare is entirely up to us. If you want to get messages everyday for a year after your sx than you can do so. Your initiative and effort is entirely your own. The Doctor can only do so much. Ok. So enough about that. I look forward to helping those who are interested. I think I've discovered my new passion- PLASTIC SURGERY! LOL
XOXO Looking forward to more questions:)
Today was my 8 week post-op doctor's appointment...

Lately I've working out and my body is looking and feeling better. I've been doing Bikram Yoga three times a week and if I'm not doing yoga I've been weight training to get my legs in shape and my butt refined and firm :) I've been continuing to eat pineapple and drinking my chamomile tea with honey. I will keep on posting to help my BBL sisters :) Please PM me in case I can help you with anything. This is such a life changing experience and it is a big decision. Love you all!
Hi everyone! So I've noticed a lot of you are...
- 11 Mar 2013
So I've noticed a lot of you are asking for bikini shots and distant shots from far away. I will post. Sorry I've been going through some very personal problems that have not given me the time to post lately. I've been very reluctant to post bikini shots because I have a very distinctive scar. I'll figure out how to photoshop it :)
Hello everyone. So I'm now 2 1/2 months post op. ...

I am so happy to have an amazing doctor. Dr.Salzhauer changed my life and my results are unreal.
I've been getting a few PM's claiming my results are fake. Let me just say, for the record- I. DO. NOT. HAVE. TIME. FOR. STUPIDITY. Thank you, I'm glad I put it out there,now, don't waste my time. I have a very successful life and this blog is meant to help people who have never seen or barely heard to what an amazing Surgeon DR.Salzhauer is ;)

Sorry for taking F-O-R-E-V-E-R to update, add pictures, etc. I have been extremely stressed out so I took a little break from everything to recoup.
Hi Everyone! I know it's been some time that...

I know it's been some time that I've posted anything. I've been so busy adjusting to running a business, school and a baby and everything else in my life lol. Unfortunately I will not be posting anymore pictures. I believe what I've posted is sufficient. I have a very unique scar that is very distinct and I do not to be recognized and my husband is not too happy about my pictures posted online as many of you can understand. I refuse to take them down as I believe I have helped people choose the doctor right for them. Dr.Salzhauer has sculpted my body to perfection and I want everyone to know how this incredible doctor changed my life.
However, the damage is done but out of respect for my husband I will not upload any pictures.............at the moment :)
I want everyone to know that I will not delete my account or pictures because although my BBL journey is done (for the moment lol) I am here to give anyone tips or information needed. This is quite an experience and I wish I had someone for me when I was going through it all. I only had other girls results to admire and when I would reach out to them- NO REPLY. Please no I am here to help and to get the word out----- DR.SALZHAUER IS THE BEST! lol
K ladies hit me up for information :)
Helllllooooo :) So recently I've been...
- 9 May 2013
So recently I've been thinking about a Tummy Tuck and Breast Aug. I had my son 10 months ago and my body has NOT been the same. Luckily for Mother's Day Dr.Salzhauer's office is offering a promotion for a Mommy Makeover which is always so nice. It's a great $3,000 deduction for Mother's Day and as a new Mom I think it's so considerate. So, I am sure everyone will think I'm as crazy as my husband thinks I am but....... (drum roll please!) ROUND 2 BBL!!!! LOL
I love my new body! And Lord knows I love my new Butt.... I just want a little more booty lol!!!! I L-O-V-E Dr.Salzhauer. He IS AMAZING! He is so dedicated to his craft, patients, skill. Ok, I know you get it. He's amazing :) I've been doing squats everyday, running reverse, calf raises, leg presses etc... I'm trying to convince my husband I need a round 2 although it doesn't matter what he thinks, but I would be nice to have him on board. I am also looking forward to having my Breast Augmentation in a few months. I will keep everyone posted!!! Take a look at the butt I want (BIG SMILE)
I hope I've been a big help to most of you. I don't intend on disappearing. Ladies, plastic surgery is an elective choice. It is a fun, scary, exciting, wonderful journey to bettering ourselves. It's easy to get caught up in the web of negativity on here. There's a difference between educating yourself and becoming obsessive to the point of making yourself sick. I've come across a couple ladies who have been been so obsessive that they've either convinced themselves out of surgery, made themselves sick thinking about it- OR Both!
My results are still as wonderful as Day 1 if not better. Luckily I have not experienced volume loss and my butt looks great.
My Doctor: Michael Salzhauer, MD
Dr. Salzhauer is an amazing doctor who is extremely talented, warm and kind. Definitely not the kind of doctor who is cold, short with his patients or overly-confident. Kindly takes time to explain everything to you. I would recommend him to anyone! Ladies he's the best in Miami :) I love my results
