3 days post op with pics - dr. Perry!

I have been working out five days a week for years...

I have been working out five days a week for years now. Yet I am such a perfectionist when it comes to my body, and there is just certain areas I can't seem to tone up. For instance, my back, stomach, and flanks have always had this little bit of fat that I want gone and I think the only way is through liposuction. Also my butt is in shape, but I want it bigger! So this procedure seems perfect for me!

I' am 5'3 and 145 pounds, but my body fat percentage is like 24% so I don't have A LOT of fat on me. After sending my photos to Dr. Salama for review I told him I was looking for at least 800 cc per cheek but he said he thinks he can do 500-700 so I have been advised to gain weight..which I have been!!! At this point I don't know how many CC's I should get, I' am scared to have too big of a butt and I don't want everyone to assume I had something done!

Well my surgery is booked for March 28th but I am trying so hard to get a sooner date like March 9th because that is when I have Spring break from school. If anyone is willing to switch PLEASE LET ME KNOW! As for now I have been taking my iron and vitamin C like Ruben told me, and I can't wait for my surgery because I' am getting fat and HATE it!

I' am very excited about my surgery I even have a countdown but at the same time I' am nervous! I' am nervous because I read about some people having poor results and I hope that it was because they chose a bad doctor. I have faith in Dr. Salama from all of the reviews and pictures I saw, I'm just scared ..I don't want to have bad results :(

Call me crazy but I' am thinking about getting...

Call me crazy but I' am thinking about getting implants too ahhhh!! What does everyone think?

So I have gained a few pounds! But I still dont know how many ccs I want...any suggestions? I want a big butt, but not a fake looking one..

Only twelve days until surgery, I' am really...

Only twelve days until surgery, I' am really excited!! I def. think I have gained enough weight to have a big ol' butt. I was happy that I read in one girls review that her butt was too big so Dr. S gave her a smaller compression garment which helped shrink it, because that is my fear is my butt being TOO BIG! I'm thinking about asking for 900 CC's, I need some opinions on that!

I fly in to Aventura early tommorow morning! I feel sad..WIERD. Ill post pics as soon as I can!!

So I arrived...Larry is great..everyone at Dr....

So I arrived...Larry is great..everyone at Dr. Salamas office was sooo nice! In my consult he said he take 3000 cc of fat off me...damn I got fat! I asked him for a 1000 but Im gonna tell him tommorow to just ..do what he do! He also told me that when we hear of some girls getting like 1300 or 1200 cc its because they have long butts, an I have an average length butt so I wont need as many CCS. Well wish me luck! Ill probaby update tommorow night or Friday morning!!

Hey ladies im laying in bed on my stomach im sore as if I worked out a bunch otherwise pain is tolerable. When I woke up from surgery I couldnt breathe! But everyone was so great. An all i gotta say is expect A LOT of blood! Im not gonna post pics til I get my new garment on tonmorow!

I went to the office today and had my nasty...

I went to the office today and had my nasty pee-stained blood-stained garment removed ..thank god! The last time I took a perk was at 8:30 am and I felt so nauseous from not eating with it. The nausea is worse then the pain seriously! It is now 1:40 and I have not needed to take another perk, and I'd rather not deal with the nausea so I'm not gonna take it. Overall though, the pain is so tolerable I was so scared about it but you know its definetly worth it. I' ve been moving around so much I' m actually standing in the lobby surfing the internet and the receptionist said she has never seen one of the girls out an about like me lol (seeing as how I just had the surgery last night). I know everyone wants to see pics I just have to edit it before I upload it because you can see my face and I don't want that lol.

So wow did I lie about the pain...I was in so much...

So wow did I lie about the pain...I was in so much pain yesturday and earlier today I just wanted to die. I ve been having to take two perks now instead of just one ..but im still up an walking because you have to. Laying in bed so much just makes u really stiff and thats where the pain comes from. I think i was so sick because i wasnt eating enough so ive been forcing myself to eat. A def. Must have is a female urinal you will pee all over your garment everytime without it!

Im feeling so good and todays day three. I have...

Im feeling so good and todays day three. I have been walking to the stores and showerjng. I ve been told im doing much better then some others. I prayed a lot so i know god is helping me. Im not really in pain anymore, i cant bend over though but thsts normal. Ill put more pics up tonight i wish i had more projection in my butt so im absolutly not sitting on it. I have seen the other girls sitting an thats so bad!! Dont sit peopeople!! Why pay all the money an go through all the pain to loose volume by sitting...no thanks!

So you really wont have any idea how this...

So you really wont have any idea how this procedure really is til youvactually get it..even with reading every review. I cant asking myself..what the hell did i do to my body..sometimes i think it doesnt matter how you look but how you feel and ill think i shouldnt have gotten this done. But i keep telling myself in the end ill forget the pain and it will have been worth it. I am no longer taking the perks because i found my body getting addicted to them, after they wore off id feel hungover. So i just went an bought tylenol because i have been getting a headache every day. I pretty much feel lousy everyday im tired of sleeping on just my stomach, an i cant wait to go home. Im not sure how i will be able to deal with my responsibilities when i get home but again i hope that ill be better then. Maybe i should be more positive today is day 5.

So I had my final massage in Miami today, switched...

So I had my final massage in Miami today, switched to a smaller garmet, and Im ready to go home. Im leaving at 6 am today, im ready to go home but not ready for my responsibilities. I have to find a massage therapist when I get there, and its gonna be one of the first things I do because you could have complications if you dont continue with them. Anyways STILL dont know how many ccs I got because Dr. Salama is still sick.

Today has been a week and two days for me. I am...

Today has been a week and two days for me. I am home now and Im happy Im here but its back to reality. I still am uncomfortable like 24/7, and I get tired very easily (like winded). Overall I m happy with my results but this recovery is definitely a process. For instance, my vaginal area is very swollen and bruised and hard I m not sure if it is from scar tissue or what, but I made a doctors appointment for Tuesday and Im hoping I can get a referral for the lymphatic massages so that I dont have to pay out of pocket. It is a must that you continue your massages after your procedure because my stomach is still swollen and it has some hard areas which is from scar tissue I believe so I probably need an ultrasound massage to break it up. I keep telling myself I can't wait for all this to just be over with! Wearing this garment like 24/7 too is a nuisance, I have to pee in a urinal and if I have to go number 2 I have to take the garment off, and to put it back on is so hard! As well I took new pictures and I feel like I have some dimples in my butt, which are new I never noticed them before. I had asked Dr. Salama if this procedure gives you cellulite and he said that the loss of fat may give the appearance of cellulite. I think I have been doing a good job not sitting, and if I do its only because I have to (if im driving or need to go to the bathroom). Well let me know what you guys think..

Two weeks now and I really have no pain...I really...

Two weeks now and I really have no pain...I really have that hourglass figure...but wish the butt was bigger lol...I ll put some pics up when my stomach goes down because its still pretty swollen.

So I will be 3 weeks on Thursday! I'm most excited...

So I will be 3 weeks on Thursday! I'm most excited about being closer to 4 weeks so that I can sit down! So FINALLY the swelling has come down in my stomach. Although I know that and my vagina are still a little swollen and def. hard. My waist is so tiny my hourglass figure is crazy! The other day this girl came into my work and was like "damnn your looking like Nicki Minaj, and your butt what did you do to your butt!" This girl thought I had butt pads on lol! So I' am much happier now than I was..I mean I still wish my butt was bigger, everyone keeps telling me my butt is perfect and big. I think I only wish it was bigger because I did pay all that money and go through all that pain so I wish I got a little more out of it. But anyways I ordered a new garment size small, this will be my last garment and I will be wearing it for 3 more weeks then I will be done! I' am hoping my waist will shrink more and then that will give the appearance of my butt being bigger. Today at school I heard some guys making comments when they walked by me so I'm sure my butt is really big, but I think you get used to it after a while. Also did I mention I was a size 5 before this and now I can barely get into an 11!! The problem is once the jeans fit over my butt they are big on my waist! The most luck I had was with Guess jeans.

SOOO I feel not really happy. I want to have this...

SOOO I feel not really happy. I want to have this surgery again because I don't think my butt is big enough. I feel like Dr. Salama didn't do his best work on me. A big reason why I wanted this surgery was because my back had fat I couldent get rid of..and yet its still there. I specifically asked for all that fat to be removed. I really just don't even know anymore I cant believe I paid all that money and wasted all the energy and Im still not happy with myself!

I will be six weeks this thursday. and i have to...

I will be six weeks this thursday. and i have to say i have a really nice body and i am proud of it. i dont feel self conscious any more that my butt is small, although i do want it bigger. im going to start looking into doing a round two for next winter. i pray i am not being too vain..but for me it is not that expensive and the pain is bearable so why not. the only thing is i absolutely do not want my stomach lipoed again because the stomach takes forever to get soft and what not. therefore i would have my arms and legs and back lipoed. but if the doc says there isnt enough fat there will be no round two for me! anyways i ve been working out at the gym everyday! im scared to get fat so i also have been eating as healthy as possible!

So I will try and take some new pictures soon and...

So I will try and take some new pictures soon and get them posted, I just don't have anyone to take them for me today. I just wanted to say to everyone that says I' m crazy for wanting a round two, that I want to have this done again because I feel angry that Dr. Salama did not get all the fat out that I wanted him too. As my stomach is softening up I can see and GRAB the fat on my stomach and back. When I take pictures I will grab this fat that I' am talking about so that everyone can see. Now i didn't have a lot of fat when i had the surgery so there is no reason why he couldent suction it all out! When i wear bras you can see fat above and below my bra which is what i always hated, and YET its still there! I'm going to send pictures soon to a new doc. to get an opinion on a round two. I would really like to go to Dr. Markmann but he is too expensive! I' am thinking Dr. Perry because people say he is good with skinny people, and I have a lot less fat on me these days so I'm thinking about going to him. But as I was telling my friend ERDREAM, if it weren't for all this extra fat on me that SOMEONE forgot to liposuction, I wouldn't be going for round two. Idk ..let me know what you all think!!

Hey everyone!!!!!!! Soooo I'm wondering whats...

Hey everyone!!!!!!! Soooo I'm wondering whats going on with my stomach because I feel like I got some loose skin and idk why because its not like i lost all this weight..i was thin before the surgery. But I have sent some photos to Dr. Markmann to get a consult...I should have went to him in the first place!!!!!!!

So I wanted to ask everyone if you are or were...

So I wanted to ask everyone if you are or were going to get the BBL who are you/would you be getting it with!!!?!?!?

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO i have FINALLY decided I will get a...

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO i have FINALLY decided I will get a round two. REASONS: I HATE the back on my fat!!! AND I have cellulite!!! so I believe I will go with Dr. Perry this time!! I read that this surgery should not cause cellulite that you get it from BAD TECHNIQUE!!!

Hey everyone! im just about 5 months now and I...

hey everyone! im just about 5 months now and I feel great. im very happy that i had the surgery. i get SO MUCH attention i think i could have a reality show or something LOL. my waist is 28, hips 33, butt 43. im considering doing a round two (because I am crazy), i want my back lipoed and butt a little bigger. if it gets much bigger i think we ll have major problems. because people already think its fake lol! but its ALL FAT PEOPLE LOL

HEY EVERYONE ITS BEEN A WHILE!! SO I FEEL LIKE I...

HEY EVERYONE ITS BEEN A WHILE!! SO I FEEL LIKE I NEVER EVEN HAD SURGERY, AND I AM GOING FOR A ROUND TWO WITH DR. SALAMA! IM HOPING I GET A DATE IN JANUARY SO SOMEONE BETTER CANCEL. THE REASONS IM GETTING A ROUND TWO IS BECAUSE I WANT MORE LIPO DONE AND I WOULDENT MIND MY BUTT BEING BIGGER. A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK MY BUTT IS FAKE AS IT IS SO WHO CARES AT THIS POINT! PEOPLE HAVE HAD THE NERVE TO ASK ME AND I TELL THEM, "THIS IS ALL FAT BABY." I REALLY CANT WAIT TO HAVE MY SECOND SURGERY SO THAT I CAN FEEL SATISFIED!

HEY EVERYONE SO I AM DEF GETTING A ROUND TWO WITH...

HEY EVERYONE SO I AM DEF GETTING A ROUND TWO WITH SALAMA IM GETTING A ROUND TWO BECAUSE I WANT A LITTLE MORE LIPO ON MY BACK AND I DONT WANT TO WASTE THE FAT SO IM GONNA TRANSFER IT TO MY BUTT! I VE ALSO BEEN THINKING ABOUT GETTIING BREAST IMPLANTS !! SURGERY IS ADDICTING!! I NEED A DATE WITH SALAMA IN MARCH I WAS AIMING FOR JANUARY BUT NOTHING IS OPENING UP. I MIGHT GET A CONSULT WITH ANOTHER PS ONLY BECAUSE SALAMA IS BOOKED UNTIL NEXT YEAR AND I DONT WANT TO WAIT!

I HAVE A DATE SEPTEMBER 30 th I NEED AN EARLIER...

I HAVE A DATE SEPTEMBER 30 th I NEED AN EARLIER DATE I DON'T CARE WHEN IT IS PLEASE CONTACT ME TO SWITCH !!!!

I have been trying to get my date moved up to...

I have been trying to get my date moved up to March with Dr. Salama but it doesnt seem realistic so I' m going to have my surgery with Dr. Perry who I feel is just as good.

I am now booked for March 6, 2013 with Dr....

I am now booked for March 6, 2013 with Dr. Perry!!! I' am super excited for my round two! I have a date with Dr. Salama for September 30th, which I won't be needing anymore so hopefully I can get my deposit back. I think Dr. Perry does great work and has more time to spend with his patients, which I like. I find with Dr. Salama's office no one responds to my emails or calls me back or they tell me they can't do something for me, but then I hear they did it for someone else. I'm tired of dealing with the BS so I' am paying double the price to go to Dr. Perry (Salama was charging me a reduced rate since he previously did my BBL).

So I had my surgery this morning an now I'm laying...

So I had my surgery this morning an now I'm laying in bed so comfortably. Keep in mind this was my second BBL so I knew what I was getting myself into! I am so happy I chose Dr Perry this time, he noticed where dr. Salama messed me up and fixed it ! Also Dr. Perry told me things that Dr. Salama never mentioned like; no shaving the night or morning of surgery due to infection, I was told to buy Hibicleanse an antibacterial soap to wash with before surgery, and the big thing... No boppy pillow! It all makes sense too, they said a boppy can make ur butt uneven because its soft. So what I've been doing is rolling a towel an putting it under my thighs an then having a pillow for my back, this will make sure you don't sit on your butt! Ill keep everyone updated !

So I just had surgery Wednesday an I have been...

So I just had surgery Wednesday an I have been doing so good! I was walking around the mall on Thursday! I have had two massages so far, pretty painful but necessary! My massage therapist has all the gadgets that I did not experience with my first surgery! She does ultrasound massage an this vacuum one, after my massages I pee like crazy which is me peeing all the fluid out! So dr perry was able to fix the dimples in my butt caused by salamas poor technique so that is a place. Other than that I can't really see how my body is looking yet but ill keep you all updated!

I know a round two was necessary after seeing my before after pics from dr perry take a look !

Hello ladie's of realself! i am sorta new to this site & barely started reading & looking around! I can't believe how many women who look amazing after getting bbl's like Dr.Perry's patients i think from florida. Dr.kim from beverly hills Dr.Salama from miami i think as well just amazing!!!! i wish my results were like yours you look amazing!!!! I recieved a bbl two weeks ago & i hate it. its not at all what i expected! I saved so much $ within just one yr & sacrificed all i had to give & i feel like a complete fool!!!!!! i cannot believe this mistake i made! i am a single mother of a four year old boy & a legal guardian of my 14 yr old sister i am 22 yrs old who lives in chicago illinois i work a 4 hour job i spent $8050 & it just slipped through my fingers & went down the drain with the rest of the shit!!!! i cry everyday & every time im on this site! some people are just not that lucky! It alway's happens to the people who have nothing to give but do so much to be happy & still aren't! i never been happy with my body i was very big as a teenager & after giving birth to my son in 2010 i started to excercise & get my life on track i lost over 100 pounds i felt great about that but now about how your body looks after! i need a tummy tuck & breast lift with implants but this is reality & things cost $$$$$$. i decided i was going to start saving to make my body better & to really feel like a complete women! i am so dissapointed i cannot believe this happened to me i was so damn excited to get one procedure down & only have two to go now i feel like i've never even started!!!! Back to square one :,( I hope there is a surgeon in chicago who is willling to help me out!!!!!! Finger's crossed because i simply cannot afford it anymore! You truly look amazing barbz1 be happy & enjoy your amazing assets :) because your truly blessed unlike some of us! Good Luck & Happy living

Surgery is so addictive! I had lipo on March 7th and scheduled for another tomorrow because I originally went to 2 different doctors and they are doing revisions but I added on other areas. I hate my back fat but I hope I am still really swollen and it will go down. UUUggh. Otherwise, I will be right on the table getting it sucked out again until I have the best hourglass figure I can obtain. LOL. Happy healing!

Hi Barbz, It sucks you had to go thru this again and not be satisfied. I'm glad you don't have any complications like lumps, necrosis, etc. Some people just can keep the fat for some reason. I had a few complications the worst right now is dimples/dents. How does you booty look now after Dr Perry as far as cellulite/dimples? I'd like to have mine fixed as well. Did the doc use cellulaze on you as well as fat transfer for the dents? I wish my booty was a little pointier in the middle like a bubble butt but it didn't stick. Could you post a close up pic of the dimpled areas to compare please? Thank you. :)

I had a bbl in Feb 2013 with Dr. Perry and lost all volume. I do have a better shape then I did prior but I could have paid less if I had done lipo. I am considering implants in DR my friend had implants done 2 years ago and has no complications yet looks fabulous.

Before you consider more sx, eat a little more so your butt will get bigger. Eat like good carbs & stuff (im not a dietitian) look up some good healthy food that'll help you gain weight. All the weight will go to your new fat in your butt! Maybe a little to other places but it will be evenly distributed. Your proportions will basically be the same. You look great. Whatever you decide you we all want you to have happy healing!

With the right excerse you be fine one girl on here said font do cardio that it will make your butt shrink to do abs work out leg work out n squats

I think you look great, but I understand yr reason for desiring bbl 2. I'm considering it myself. I do not recommend the implants. Very hard and stiff plus recover. Is a lot more ccomplicated. Your body is great without further touch ups!
