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...
