My beautiful BBL sisters!! 7 week update =)

Ok... So had my procedure done on 9/20/11 and so...

Ok... So had my procedure done on 9/20/11 and so far I'm pretty happy.. So now for details..

Mother of 2 teenaged children Exercised and dieted did cyan pepper, atkins south beach grapefruit even nutrisystem have a gym membership, a blowflex and a treadmill nothing got me to where I wanted to be so did the next thing I could.. The research began... Did several consults over the phone and on the internet. Decided on Mx for Lipo and BBL.. The consultants are friendly, informative and always respond quickly. Even recieved a phone consult with the doctor to go over any questions. Although I did see some negative reviews I did my research and decided to go ahead with my procedure at this facility...

So I got to San Diego a day prior was picked up at the airport by a super friendly lady the vehicle had the emblem for the surgery clinic ( didn't know if I should have been embarrassed for the advertisement of my visit or relived that it was on the up and up LMBBLO) With in a few min we were in Tijuana and I was getting my blood work done. Payment was requested but I still had a few questions for the doc and asked if I can make final payment after my face to face with the doctor which was not a problem. A staff member then took me to the hotel I would be staying in helped me get settled in and said would be back for me in the morning.

Picked up on time got in the sexxi gown nurses prepped me, anesthesiologist talked to me then the doc came in. Showed him a picture of what in my mind I wanted to look like, really never discussed how many cc's to inject and all that because honestly I don't know how much a cc of fat is and what that would look like after its in my @$$ =).. So we discussed my body and he went into detail as to what I wanted and what could actually be done. I was comfortable with his responses and actually quite relieved I had a doctor to tell me the truth and not what I wanted to hear. I had no false expectations and knew exactly what would happen. Made final payment, went to the procedure room had an IV placed in and woke up in recovery.

 Phew... Hard part over?? I think NOT!! So initially no pain, just uncomfortable and a bit nauseas. After about 2 hrs I was given some meds, discharge instructions and taken to the hotel. to rest.. OMGosh what the heck was I thinking?? Ok some pain, tenderness But how would I handle the flight out the next day??? Made it through the night slept on my stomach not an overwhelming amount of blood or drainage but I did have about 30 lbs of gauze and wrap on me...Good gawd will I make it through airport security?? Long story short... Got out of Mexico, made it through airport security had wheelchair assist all the way home, was dizzy, nauseas and you could smell the blood from my bandages under my clothes almost made me throw up twice can't imagine what the passenger next to me was feeling it was horrible but I made it home afraid all the sitting during traveling will alter my outcome keeping my fingers crossed that I will have a superfine booty. NOTE!!! Take some time to recover don't fly out as soon as I did cause I certainly regret it.

 So on day 4 after surgery I feel well took off the 30 lbs of gauze able to shower and have my compression garment on. it's tight in the glutes but loose this the waist so I got a waist cinch. Stomach is hard and has some ridges tender to the touch and still some bruising present. Down about 4 pounds but still pretty swollen like what I see so far =) will keep ya'll posted.. I'm saying it's worth it but honestly will have to wait the 6 weeks post op for final results.

9/26/11 So 6 days post op. Feeling well. No pain...

9/26/11 So 6 days post op. Feeling well. No pain meds needed still on the antibiotics. Very few lipo areas tender to touch. Bruising down and most of the swelling I see is in the pubic area. Still feeling dizzy and nausea at times but unsure if due to meds or lower caloric intake. Compression garment tight in glutes but loose in waist may need to purchase second stage garment already (yay!!)Can't see a big difference in photos but definately in the fit of my clothes. Hope my butt stays this size =) Have pics of the front but I'm bucked nekid (LMBBLO (Laughing My Brazilian Butt Lift Off)) If you want to see send message (=

OK 2 week update =) Feeling really good only...

OK 2 week update =) Feeling really good only slight burning/tearing sensation on left side (waist) when I bend or twist a certain way. Feeling in my lower back has almost fully returned. Bruising almost entirely gone. Skin feels really tight Can see big changes in the waist and stomach (yay!!!) not so much in the glutes =( ...But my clothes definitely fit better......Concerned about the ripples and dimpling on the stomach. I think most of the swelling has gone down not sure how to tell for sure. Did not change garment as of yet what I did do was purchase one for the waist with no zippers and use it under the garment given to me from the doctor ( I hope this is ok) but I don't know how tight I should wear it.Would really like to start exercising again I have to keep reminding myself thats it's only been 2 weeks some people don't see final results anywhere between 6 mo to a yr post op.. Grrrrrr.. But anyone that has done their research knows the BBL is a crapshoot too many varibles determine if u will have the results you want.. will I have enough viable fat?? Will my skin strecth?? Will I reabsorb the fat?? If so how much?? On and on..... Anywho... heres some stats..

Height 5'11
Weight pre-op 207 Weight post-op 203
Measurement pre-op 44-39-45
Measurement post-op 42-34-47

Till next week!! Hugz!!

Sorry I haven't been keeping up with the updates...

Sorry I haven't been keeping up with the updates =( but I'm at 7 weeks now... bruising gone I still have the pox marks but they are less visible. The rippling/dimpling on the stomach is almost entirely gone although there is some (very little) swelling. Still have some numbness in the lower back... Absolutely love my flatter figure and new waistline.. Clothes fit really well =) Ok, ok now for the booty.... I quit wearing the garment and I sit and try to sleep on it (try being the operative word) it was a little uncomfortable in the beginning and took some getting used. I really didn't get the big bodacious booty I thought I wanted. Notice I said thought. Turns out I'm really happy with my lil bubble butt (my daughter calls it that c(= ) It’s great to be admired and not so much ogled.. the down side.. I got some cellulite (blah) not too bad but more than I had before so I tried to start exercising ** note. Running is a big NO NO!!! Doctor said my body could continue to change but I’m satisfied with where I am so keeping my fingers crossed that it won’t change too much. Honestly I think I got more results from the sculpting from lipo than the fat transfer. At this point it doesn’t matter, I feel awesome and have no regrets =)
