hi it has been 24 days since my bbl, im feeling real good there are some sore parts but ready to party lol yesterday was the best day eva and so far today has been good . waking up to swelling like my hands a little in my face my legs but all to be expected.ive been experiencing some depression since the surgery and not quiet sure why hope it goes away.i got into my car yesterday with an oblong pillow for under my thighs and one for my lower back so my bootay wont touch the seat, drove 2 miles felt good to be out on the road. my measurements are quiet the same .... top im 38 waist is 29.5 hips are 42.5 so far so good i got projection which is good but i wanted a roung butt as well and im not seeing the roundness in there again to soon to see results but we all know that feeling we start feeling good and that sends a signal to our head that everything sould look good but is not so .... im being patient lol. my ladies be patient as well cause all the girls that have gotten there dream bodys are beautiful... those that on there way you will look buttiful as well :)
Hope your doing great with your healing. Its rough at first but its getting easier for me. Well post pix when you can.
Ok please tell me how u put the car seat? Did u lean forward when u drove? Im so scared of this part cuz I feel like im gonna mess up something. Lol I think im driving myself crazy!!! But you are so right we have to be patient and wait to see our results cuz its still early.
@miss new booty my car seat was straight i use the oblong pillow for under my thighs and one for my back and at the bottom on the floor closre to the side where the brake pedal is there is a foot rest i think all cars have one i put my foot there and kinda rise my self up a bit and i drove like that again today for like a 15-18 min. drive .... but as long as you not sore cause if ur thighs are still sore i dont think we can do it cause you do have to put some pressure under ur thighs wen i got back from were i went which was another 15-18 min. drive i was tired, swollen, and sore i went with out my garment wanted to look to cute :)ima try to upload my pics tomorrow my daughter is going to help yippie

I updated this from my iPhone ! Why cant I do it from my computer so like they you can see my update pictures
So you don't think he lipo your full back or lower back. I have marks on the mid left and right and another in the middle of my back. I know he only took very little out from the mid bra area but he took everything out on my lower back area. That area is still swollen some today. They did tell me that by month 6 it should be almost all heal. Yes I think you should ask them now so you know if you need to redo those areas. Will that be 3 months after surgery?
Wow . But you see that I notice that he did not lipo my back cause I don't see any marks like I see everywhere else I have these mark on my side left n right n my husband says maybe he went through their but I don't know I get to see him again on April.shouldi I wait to my appointment or let him know now ? I already told him that I want more fullness n rOundness in there which he said ok so I'm excited again this is crazy
@Bannana I plan to have my surgery this Tuesday. Do u have any tips. Are u happy with your results?

Well i was able to post some pictures finally i...

well i was able to post some pictures finally i was having some type of technique dificulties here well these pictures are 6wks post up im not to happy i want round and more fullness he did not lipo my back these were areas that were to be done as stated on my preop papersso i guess they will get the fat from there and do the transfer cause he did my arms my sides inner and outter thighs my stomach expect the lower back and bra area....... smh
Thank you Teresa8296 keep me posted with your procedure ok
Girl, you look absolutely FABULOUS!!!! I CANTWAIT.
Lana, check out this booty here. Can she be helped

Well today i went for my post-op of 2 months and 9...

well today i went for my post-op of 2 months and 9 days (something like that ) this is also my pre-op post as well .... he said that i look good ask me what i wanted to improve and what i didnt like and i told him that i still see that i have large flanks and i want more out of my inner thighs and some of my bra area he said that he will try to remove what he can so im set up for june 4th he wont be here the 6th so i will go a few days early .... this time i got evreything down as far as weight and measurement..... im 5ft 5.5in. @ 157lbs my measurements are 38/ 31.5/41.5 my goal is to be @ 38-30-43-or-44 would like to be at 150-or-155 i have not lost any weight from my previous surgery i was at 159 to be 157 is not no weight lost for me im back to feeling like a virgin i don't know how to act or what to do lol my touch up will be towards the bottom how can i described this ummm ok like the letter C yea and of course the letter Y so like that ther be a bit more proyection .... this time im going to get me a funnel or maybe not cause i got up from bed by myself after the thrid time of me having to pee i was doing it on my own maybe thats why i wasn't in so much pain... one thing for sure is that i wont be shock when i see myself swollen ... i asked my ps about recovery time and pain level he said 'recovery is the same as the first time,pain level should be less cause is less lipo hopefully"so ladies here comes round two wheater is a touch up or redo is still nerve racking to me well my pictures are not ready for post cause my daughter has not been around and my husband says he aint going to do it he's fed up with this bottay thing he says i have look at more butts then him lol yea right so im going to do my best for sunday or monday ok..... by the way Happy Easter to all the ladies and doctors ....Lana

The last picture that i posted is what i was...

the last picture that i posted is what i was saying earlier that towards the bottom on my left side theres like this bubble... again i say that this was do to my garment i will take a picture of the garment too well that bubble is still there and i dont think is going to away so now i want him to touch that area up in there again like what im trying to do is get that C SHAPE IN THERE... AND THEN THE Y
nah .but i belive his price is getting higher because of the demand
Are you going to the same doctor for a touch up?
Wow Banana, I thought he charged more

Wow im finally sitting on my butt dont get me...

wow im finally sitting on my butt dont get me wrong i was sitting already but not for long periods cause it use to start hurting so i would switch and sit on my side the same as sleeping ...i would sleep on the body pillow like haf on my side n haf on my tummy can u picture what im saying ok.... im like wow it literaly took me 3 months to feel normal in regards to my butt... well i guess it is what it is .and to think that i be doing this again in june ahhhh and with the summer right around the corner has anyone had a round 2 or a touch up is the soreness the same ? im just hoping i dont have alot of brusing i will be getting a touch up on my flanks and lower back please if anyone had a touch up or a round 2 info me about the soreness thanx
That's my opion I'm excited knowing that I got 15 day for my touch up
Wow. Ok, great advice. I had lip a few years ago on my thighs but that was in May and I was good for the summer. I missed my window so I guess I'll do this in September or October. Just in time for me to shake my rump in Carnival (in Trinidad) in February.
If I was to do this over again I would do it during the fall only because of the bruises nd the swelling oh the famous garment who wants to wear that during the summer for two or three months not me .... I've had a few surgerys done already no I've never had them fine during the hot summer they have been during fall or early spring I'm going for a touch up in 15 days but this is only going to be fat remove from my back nd transfer to my lateral sides so I'm thinking it shouldn't be to bad ... I started sitting at my 22 day with the bobby pillow ns only for 20 min. I completely sat on my new butt with our having to switch back nd forward from butt to sides exactly at my three month postop

Ok ladies here I go again die round two things...

Ok ladies here I go again die round two things have not change much my weight is still 156 my height is the same 5ft 5 1/2 inches tall breast 38 waist 32 hips 42.5 I do see a difference at the bottom if my left side cheek where I was saying there was a bubble is not as noticeable anymore u will put pictures up . My goal nd reason for touch up is to get a rounder butt nd a full hips to have more lipo to my lower nd bra area fat remove I will be going back to my amazing doctor gabay
Am I nervous ? Yes very much I'm already at the point were I'm dreamng with the procedure bd wake up to a long long big ugly donkey butt don't want that bit at my age I'm married with children and I'm 45 so I want to look as natural as possible . I get lots of compliments now girls that know me that know that I use the gym want to join nd want me to be there instructor ,.,., ha ha if they only new that I had transfer fat with lipo .... I tell them yea when I get better cause I can't go yet . I had told them that I fell nd crack my tail bone so they believe me well till next time I will keep all the ladies posted June 4 th is my day back to feeling like a virgin again
Thanks Lana, I will be going in January of next year. I am still thinking if I should get more butt or not. I saw a few wide loades came in to see him for massages and post op. I dont want them wide load girl. He told me I have a heart shape butt so I dont know if it will come out looking like a wide load.
Hey girl how are you doing ? So wen you going back to him to give you a stallion butt ? By the way you look good
Hey Lana I went to see Salama and he is going to stallionize me. I will text you tomorrow

Went to my pre- op visit today had some pictures...

Went to my pre- op visit today had some pictures then got weigh blood work Bp my weight is at 160 I gained a few pounds but I did it purposely I took my measurements ns they are
38 / 32 / 42.5
I exPlain to my doctor were I wild like to see the imProvement nd he said not a problem just that there is not much fat so we will see how this is going to turn out
I want him to do the se thing like the first time nd add so to the lateral sides nd some at the bottom I explain it to you ladies like this a C shape and an upside down Vwhich will give a illusion of a shelf .
Now that it is getting closer to my date June 4 th I'm very excited nd nervous it is feeling like I was a vurgin on a first date
Ladies my blessing to all of you who had the procedure already n lots of good Heath nd to those who are about to get this transformation done happy healing nf best of luck
Now with that being said I just need a little bit if that myself
I will stay in touch nd I will post before n after pictures
By the way my doctor explain he will do the same procedure so I can have a little more projection
He will add to my sides ( lateral) like I stated above he will remove fat from my flanks bra area nd my inner upper part of my thighs .....
Yes the one that he gave me but right now is
U h smaller
I went yo my consultation with Gabay yesterday & my surgery date is June 12th.. The Garment tht made the bubble, was it the one he gave you ?
I went yesterday for my consult and I was there over an hour. Needless to say, I rescheduled for next Wed......last appointment. Sigh

Ok so i go in first thing in the morning on monday...

ok so i go in first thing in the morning on monday june 4th and im a bit scared .
im not anxious im more like scared idk y . anyway i wont be there no more then three hours my husband will not be staying , he will take me then pick me up nd my daughter will do the rest of the day nd afternoon with me until he gets home ......
i have bought me the following items
1) 3 pillows
2)a jar of pickles
3)the funnel
5)gel ice or hot packs
6)gatorade,water , vitamin water , pedialyte with electroyles not sure if im spelling it right
7) last n not least preparing to have lots n lots of patients nd promosing myself not to get emotional
ps.... i have the vitamins w/ iron, pain meds, nd the laxtivie
You taking depends too? I was wondering how you will get your garment over the depends. Its hard enough getting on the garment let alone getting the garment over that big booty and depends. lol What is the pickle suppose to do? Where will you put the icepack? On the booty?
Ok depends will be over my garment so I will try to keep bed sheets dry
Pickles helps with healing anything that has to be ferment is good in healing.... Ice pack for the sore areas or I should say the areas that were lipo can put the ice on your booty too .....

Ok tomorrow is my big day I will be going through...

Ok tomorrow is my big day I will be going through this bbl procedure a second time

I had a Tummy Tuck back in May the Dominican Republic and Dr. Mendez does an excellent job...I don't know who things would be flying with BBL he charges 3500....when I saw the price for Dr. Gabay...and I live in New Jersey ......whooo hoo...he is pretty booked up so it looks like closer to September anyway

2 wks nd 1 day .....Yesterday was my 2wk. follow...

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

Does it hurt more this time or the first time
Well thnx. .... I'm happy with my results I've been happy I wanted fullness round n projection n I got it he is very good .... Right now I'm reaching for my normal weight if 145 or 150 but if I get to 155, is ok cause now 155 won't look yo bad cause no more live handles
yes girl thats a very nice bubble i really have been thinking on doing my bbl with dr gabay i see he dose nice work

19 days postop of touch up Most ladies that had...

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

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 Im super excited my day is here its Wednesday!!!!

Hi ladies you girls look fabulous st gabay is the best if you want to see some pics I can do that but thru email or phone no access to a computer
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!
I have kept my volume and I'm still in live with my butt I get lots of head turns n I do exercise ... Thnx n if you have any other question n I can help just let me know


This is the final results from June 4 th of 2012 n I want to Go back to make it more fuller I'm Gud with the projection but at times I just think that it sticks out just to much n it don't match with my thighs if I get it rounder it won't look to perkie
