Butt Lift, Totally Worth It - Kennesaw, GA

I am a 30 year old woman from Philadelphia, I'm 5'11 3/4's and roughly 190lbs, my dress size was a 10. I traveled to Kennesaw Ga on August 26th to have my BBL Sx, I stayed in a local hotel for 8 days to recovery before I took the 1.5 hour plane ride back to Philly. My surgeon was a young, beautiful, charismatic African american women with amazing skills that's had some hands on training in Brasil.

y surgery consisted of lipo of the upper/lower abs, flanks, low back and bra line with fat injections to the hips and buttocks. Her fee also included Zerona treatments and ultrasound treatments post op until I flew back home.

Let me start off by saying I've never been in so much pain and discomfort in my life, I'm still sore and my Sx was almost 5 weeks ago. My entire torsol is still hard, lumpy and presents with decreased sensation. I have been ultrasounding and massaging the lipo-Ed areas daily, which the modalities have helped soften up the areas a bit but progress is slow. I am still sleeping on my stomach because I'm afraid to sleep on my back and decrease the tissue survival rate, I was informed that by month 1 my tissue has just began to vascularize strong connections with blood vessels and neighboring tissue. I have not sat more than a total of 5 hours since my surgery, I still continue to kneel and opt to go to venues in which I can stand up and move around. I started working out lightly at week 4, 30 minutes of light cardio coupled with upper body weight training. I've also taken 6 weeks off of work to minimize potential damage from sitting. Thank God I live in a major city where subway is king, therefore I've been taking the subway and walking to all my destinations since I live in a walkable city.

I am happy with my results at 4.5 weeks post op, I wish my buttocks and my hips were larger, but trust me, I look 100 x better than what I did pre surgery. My boyfriend can't keep his hands off of me and every man I pass is doing a double and sometimes a triple take. I feel very sexy with new found confidence that I did not have when I was square bob sponge pants.

Oh yes, by the way, I am still wearing my stage 2 garment, my PS recommended 3 months. I started it out with a X large garment, after 2 weeks I went down to a large garment and now I'm in a medium garment. The price of the garment That my PS recommended is $150.

All ofthis was well worth it, but I will never ever do it again. The pain for me along with the discomfort was unbearable, enough pain to last me a life time.

Hi, It has been six weeks since my surgery and according to my friends and man I have not lost any volume since week 3. I must say, I'll have to take that with a grain of salt. My stomach and flanks still swell if I have my garment off, my abdomen, back and flanks are still hard and sensation is still decreased. I'm rather itchy, this week, it could be due to nerve regeneration or other celluar/neuro processes my body is going through inside. I started back at work and I sit appx 2.5 hours a day. I am a physical therapist and thank God I can stand to do chart reviews, documentations and treatments, I must say I must scare my clients because I am a large woman, 6ft and most of my clients are in their 80's and 90's, very frail and short statured. When I am home a still kneal, I sleep on my back and I continue to skip venues that will have me seated for hours. My butt is softer, it jiggles when lightly tapped (-__-). I made the mistake of not wearing my garment to work tuesday-thursday and BOY did my whole trunk are swelled up, I was very uncomfortable and in PAIN. Right now I have a mid thigh garment, I am in the process of looking for a below the knee garment because you could see the garment cutting into my thighs through my scrubs and bussiness casual wear. Again, I'm a pretty large woman, I would guess my thighs are on the xlarge/large side and my waist is a meduim, the garment that I currently wear is a Meduim, so you know that thing was digging into my thighs like crazy.
