I am a big fan of Real Self because of how therapeutic and informative it can be. The bond members form here are amazing and I want to be a part of it. So this is my story:
I am a 30 year old single mother of three kids ages 10, 8 and 6. I'm 5'7 and 113lbs. Yes I am extremely thin. Though I have always been naturally thin it was usually being around the weight of 120 - 130lbs. I have gotten to 160lbs before (and I'm serious when I say that I was in love with my muffin tops). Part of being a woman is having dangerous curves. Right now I'm just a safe, drive straight ahead road and I hate it!!! It doesn't describe my personality. My personality is larger than life and my ASS-ets have to be the same as well.
I have been wanting a brazilian butt lift before I even knew it existed. I'm half Dominican and half Puerto Rican. The fact that I don't have a nice round big plumpy booty makes me feel like I'm setting a false illusion to people when I tell them my ethnicity since the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Dominican or Puerto Rican women are "She must have a fat ass!". I always say my butt is sad because it can't clap. I want to make it clap dammit!!!
I have tried just about everything to give my butt a nice shape (from padded panties to fajas) but setting a false illusion under my clothing makes me paranoid. I get all weird or jumpy whenever someone gets close to me out of fear that they are going to smack my ass and they are going to hear the "poof" sound of the foam padded panties (which has happened by the way).
On top of getting this procedure done, I am also getting rhinoplasty, tummy tuck and breast augmentation sometime in April. I have to quit smoking though which I've done before but somehow fell off the bandwagon and apparently twisted both ankles because now for the life of me I can't get back up and start over.
The doctor who will be doing this procedure will be Michael Salzhauer of Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery Associates. I want to be upfront with everyone and state that I do work for the doctor in the call center but I am by no means here to promote the doctor but to share my experience and hopefully gain a strong support system since I really don't have one. I don't have friends and family nearby. I live in Miami alone with my kids. The reason why I want to be upfront with this is because I don't want people to get the idea that this is a fake account. It is not. Though I do work for the doctor, I am really a patient in the making and I will upfront about my whole experience (which might differ from the rest of you but nonetheless you will find things in my story you can relate to).
I have to say my kids are a great support system and motivators. Like I knew I was making the right choice to get a tummy tuck when my daughter Xyleena told me "Mommy your tummy is melting" (Thanks Xy! You sure know how to make mommy feel good). I think I have learned so much (and still have a lot more to learn) about plastic surgery from my job that it has overflowed to my kids. They know the proper names of procedures, how it's done and why people get it. They just love my boss' music videos that he posts on YouTube which they know word for word.
Part of the main reason why I want to do this blog on Real Self is because at my job I constantly speak with patients on their personal and emotional journey through plastic surgery and sometimes get caught up on it that I find myself chit chatting a little longer than I was supposed to. I get so excited and live vicariously through their experience but I have no one to share my experience with (or at least no one that will sit there and listen to me ramble on and on about it). This is the only place I can actually go and do it.
I have my reasons for choosing Dr. Salzhauer and it's not because he's my boss because he's been my boss for only 3 months. I have been wanting him to be my surgery for 6 years!!! I wouldn't choose him to work on my body or I wouldn't work for him if I didn't feel he was the best. I see day in and day out happy beautiful patients whose life turned around because they gained a whole new level of confidence and love for their body. I want that!!!!
I'm not here to sway anyone's decision on which doctor to choose. My suggestion always is to choose who you are most comfortable with. You can take suggestions from everyone all you like and you can go by everyone else's results but you have to keep in mind that at the end of the day it all boils down to your own intuition about the doctor and your results will be unique just like everyone else's.
I am here to hopefully share my experience, be there for others and hopefully have others be there for me. I am ready to say bye bye to my potatoe pancake booty and make my Ren & Stimpy tattoos on each of my butt cheeks pop out in 3D!!!! LMAO!! If there is any way I could be of assistance to any of you ladies, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'm always happy and honored to be there for someone who needs it.
I am excited about getting all my procedures done but mainly the brazilian butt lift because I am a huge fan of asses. Not to mention all the girls I work with have nice plumpy butts while mine sticks out (or should I say sucks in) like a sad story (whatever that means). I have two goals to achieve first though: quit smoking and gain weight. Two of the most difficult tasks for me because I smoke a lot and I eat a lot too but I don't gain weight. (Damn you fast metabolism!!!) It's a challenge but it can be done with positivity and determination.
Just wanted to share this funny video my boss Dr....

I am horrible at updating my blog consistently. I've been so busy lately with other things going on in my life and when I do get on RealSelf, I get sucked into reading other people's blogs versus updating my own. I posted pictures of myself to give you some idea how I look and I also posted a link to a video I posted on YouTube that my kids made for Dr. Salzhauer's birthday. I thought it was so cute and funny.
I had to postpone my surgery date because I have not gained enough weight for the surgery. In fact, I didn't gain any weight. Did I mention that I started smoking again? I know I know, Dr. Salzhauer gives me the everyday speech about smoking and why I should quit. He always ask me questions like "So Yasmin, how many days are you smoke-free?" and I'll ask "Does today count?" and he'll reply back "Yes" and my response would be "Hmmmm.....0!" Then he will start to give me motivational pep talks like "You can do it! Tomorrow is a new day and you will be one day closer to your new body you always wanted". He's such a positive thinker. I need to incorporate his way of thinking and make it a double to really motivate me. lol.
So I was thinking once I start the process of quitting cigarettes (gasp!) and conjure up a "Feed-My-Ass" diet, I'll probably document the whole thing and post it on a vlog or something on YouTube. I want to document the whole thing from beginning to end. I want to weigh about 130 - 135lbs before I do the surgery. Anything less than that with my height is senseless. As much as I see beautiful results from patients that come in and out of this office (not to mention the amazing results I see everyday with my beautiful co-workers), I just finally want to be in the BBC (Big Booty Club). But I can't blame anybody but myself for not having it yet because I have no self control over smoking right now and I'm not taking real actions towards gaining weight. Dr. S always says "Discipline will make you happy". I didn't get it until now.
While juggling 3 kids, 2 jobs and going to school online, I need to make time for my self-project for reinventing myself. I seriously need to stop putting myself to the back burner. I am ready to be a bombshell and cause traffic collisions wherever I go. #SexyTrouble
My Doctor: Michael Salzhauer, MD
When I was living in NY back in 2006 I went to see a doctor in New York for a BBL. Just like every other doctor, I did not feel comfortable with him because he was too serious and impersonal for my own liking I started researching other doctors and came across Dr. Michael Salzhauer. His work amazed me. I saw some of his music videos on YouTube and thought "This doctor is so wacky.....right up my alley". Since then I was determined if I was to ever get a surgeon, it would only be him. I ended up being Facebook friends with him but we never really spoke. In 2012 I was chosen to be on MTV True Life to document my experience getting a brazilian butt lift and he was actually supposed to be my doctor. Problem was that at the time my family and friends didn't want to be on TV and I had no means of getting to Miami while living in Kissimmee. The producer of the show said I was perfect for the documentary but my whole situation was all wrong. I was sad that it still wasn't my time to make this change but I still believed the doctor would be my surgeon. I went to see the doctor on my own for a consultation which after meeting him I felt so comfortable that I knew this is the right choice but once again there was bad timing. I was going through a rough transition in my life in which I found myself not having a place to live. During that time I kept in communications with Dr. Salzhauer via Facebook from time to time. I ended up moving to Miami from Kissimmee in search of a new beginning in life as a single mom in Sept 2012. Around that time the doctor posted on Facebook that he was doing a music video and needed someone to play Nikki Minaj. I just had to do it so I asked him if I could and he said yes. It was so much fun doing the video. The doctor got to know a little more about me and he just loved the passion that I have for plastic surgery and offered me a job to work at his call center. It was a blessing that changed my whole life. I managed to be stable and independent as well as love what I do for a living. It feels good being a part of a company that changes lives in the way that I want my life to be changed. I know my kindness goes a long way for our patients and it feels so good when I find a connection with them. I know what it's like to have a flat booty or a bulbous nose or tennis balls in tube socks looking boobs. I still look that way!!! But my time will come and after personally seeing so many successful beautiful results day in and day out from Dr. Salzhauer, how could I not choose him. In my eyes, for ME, he is the best choice to achieve the look that I want.
