2 wks nd 1 day .....Yesterday was my 2wk. follow up had my stitches removed ...
doctor gabay said that everthing is good he wants me to massage because i have more then a couple of knots so i guess i will continue going to lorena (more money involved) has lots of skills in the massage and it makes me feel better afterwards so ;;;
Dr.Gabay wants to see me in 6 wks.
my current weight is 157 my meassurements are 38/ 31.5/ 43.5
i have switched garments already im useing the waist cincher and for my bottom im using support as well
sorry i dont have a picture on the site but i can give you the brand and model number
Leonisa model number 012778. I got mines from the area where i live im sure if you go to the web site you can oder it online ......
im very happy with my results the frist day right after surgery i was measuring 45.5 there was a typo problem when i put 46.
i go for a massage today nd part of the session is going to be with suction cups omg i heard that it hurts a little bit well this is all for now

19 days postop of touch up
Most ladies that had already had there BBL had asked if its as painful as the first time
The answer to that is that not everyone have the same mass or pain tolerance so just cause I say
No it did not hurt as it did the first time .....
I went for lymphatic massages this time my procedure was done on June 4 th m my sister took me for my first massage on the 7 th of June which hurt but right afterwards I was feeling good I have had five of those massages already which now includes the suction cups they hurt but afterwards I'm draining like a race horse .... I was also asked if I'm sitting ?
Yes I am ( on a cushion ) I believe I started sitting like my 8 th day my first time having this procedure fine I didn't go nowhere until my 21 day and that was difficult .
I really believe the lymphatic massage made a huge difference on my body I still got 5 more session to go n I will complete them
When I went for my touch up I was a a weight of 161 lbs
My current weight as of today is 155lbs n my measurements are
Hmmm looks like it is increasing a bit
This is without any garment on just bare skin
I'm truly very happy with my results
Just to remind the ladies I'm not a young one so I need to keep it the way it is
Those of you that want it bigger n rounder best of luck to you all

Hey girl! Your results look great! I just recently got my bbl and there's a few questions I want to ask you? How many CC's were injected? We're u able to sit in your butt rite away? Did your fat shift as the days went by? You can inbox as well!

I love your results! Are you still loving your results now and has the volume gone down any? I'm considering Dr Gabay so I'm trying to do as much research as possible!

Thank you! I'm glad that you're still loving your results! I've read a lot of mixed reviews on him so it made me kind of nervous. So is that what he quoted you for? 5,000 just for the BBL? I seriously need everything done; the BBL, TT and BL right after this pregnancy! Lol Ahhhh, I can't wait! =)

Before you go in for surgery with Dr. Gabay, you might want to do more research. Five of us had surgery with him and one person is satisfied, but she didn't have a bbl and she complains about the lipo to her legs & arms. I'm quite upset that I have to go back for round two. Please do your research, or you will be like the rest of us, depressed and regretful.

Thanks for the info hun. Yeah, I read a lot of mixed reviews on him so it made me nervous. I'll be going to DR for my surgery cause the docs there def know what they're doing. Why are u unhappy with your results?

All I can say is that I'm very happy with my results Dr.Gabay did a good job on me and I'm happy with my results I still will recommend him and the most important thing is to follow the post op rules

When did you start getting massages and where? because I asked the dr and he said I didn't have to but I need the best results

hey lady I want to ask you how did make sure you kept your volume? I feel great I do drive. Did you use a special pillow? what about the garment? I think the one he gave me is going to restrict my butt from growing LOL

Hey Ladies, I've been BUSY, BUSY, BUSY, and I apologize, I haven't updated my page. I healed up tremedously fast!! Even the doctor was surprised. My bruising is gone but you also have to remember I'm darker than most of you on here. Most importantly, I have kept most of my volume and I still have a big old nicely proportioned booty. I already had hips so this just was the icying on the cake. Dr. Gabay sugguested I switch my garment a week after my surgery and I went to a lingerie store that specializes in BBL garments and I also kept up with my massages (this helped with the swelling). I started working out because I want to stay toned and keep my shape. Ladies drink plenty of water too. Any questions, I'll be happy to answer.
  • Reply
I am not sure if you answered this before...but did Dr Gabay provide the initial garment? If not did you purchase it prior to your surgery? I am not sure if i will be in any condition to go shopping right after my surgery i want to make sure I have everything in place and ready to go. Thank you so much for your response!!! And I am glad you are still happy with your results...I think that fact that you are working out has helped as well...I was going to use the massage therapist you recommended...but i moved so I am not close to philly anymore :( ---- not sad about the move tho!!! - getting married next year - so i need my butt to look right!!!
