I am so freaking excited! I just booked my surgery for May 29, 2012 with Dr. Salama in Aventura, Florida. It is so long away, the anticipation is going to kill me. I am stationed in South Korea and after seeing the reviews here on RealSelf, I knew that Dr. Salama was the right doctor for the job. I have been wanting this procedure for so long, I can't wait to get it over with.
I was thinking about getting 800 to 1000cc in each buttocks. I am about 145lbs and 5'5''. I wanted to get 1000cc because I know that some of the fat is going to get reabsorbed in my body but I didn't want a "big stupid" booty. I just got my husband warmed up to the idea so I don't want to push my luck!! lol
I think I'm going to book a room at the Marbay. I am trying to talk my friends into getting procedures do that we can save on the hotel room.
I'm happy that I booked the surgery on special! It includes lipo of the upper and lower back, flanks, upper and lower abdomen; 2 post operative massages; 2 compression garments; transportation to and from airport, to and from all appointments.
Before pics coming soon!

It seems like the higher Dr. Salama's price has increased, the worse his results have gotten. Maybe I am just tripping but some of these women on here just looks like they got "Walrus" butts (huge and wide but still flat) and I really don't want that to happen to me. I really want a good profile and silhouette (you know that "S" curve ladies). I just hope that he can give me what I wan because I have not seen him do it lately. You will know what I am talking about if you see the shape that Dr. Jimerson gives his clients.
Anyways, I have been shopping like crazy ordering things that I think I may need. A lot of what I have has been suggested by the ladies on this site so Thanks Ladies! I was able to get all of my lab work done by my primary physician and I have gotten all of my prescriptions filled. So, I am good to GO!
New booty here I come!
I am now 8 days post op and I applaud the ladies...

Sorry to say I am a huge punk when it comes to pain and I had to get a second prescription of the pain meds. My husband and I are staying at the Marbay and I only paid 684 for 12 days. Even though it's not a five star hotel, our room have a microwave, hot plate, and full size refrigerator so we were able to go grocery shopping so my trooper of a husband can cook for me everyday. The hotel was very convenient since it was only 5 minutes from Dr. Salama office and directly across the street from the surgical site!
Even though this surgery was excruciating, I would do it all over again. My lower hands and arms are back to normal, they had swelled a greet deal. My stomach is super flat now and I am very happy with how it turned out. One gross thing is that my vagina is still swollen. The post operative massages were very painful but necessary. The staff was amazing, so helpful and nice. I got my drains out yesterday and that made me feel 100times better. I am able to walk a whole lot better and get around much quicker.
One more tip, ladies if you are as pissy as I am you are going to need a bucket right next to your bed. This garment puts a lot of pressure on your bladder so every time you get up it really makes you have to go. Once again I love my new bod and I am ready to shake what my doctor gave me!!!
Now that I am back in DC for a couple of weeks...

I really hope that I don't loose any more volume. Dr. Salama said that my skin was too tight to get more than 1000cc, I was hoping for at least 1100. It starting to get soft and jiggly so I am a very excited about that. I still have some bruising but it is going away nicely. My overall shape has definitely improved. For some reason and I reluctant to give away my old jeans that I can't even get above my thighs now just in case I wake up one day and don't have an ass! I have spent a lot of money on my jeans so I am a little scared to give them away but I know I need to. Decisions, decisions....lol
I have been too annoyed to post any new pics but I...
