42 Years Old...two Children - Buckhead, GA

I'm 12 days out of my surgery. I had a belt...

I'm 12 days out of my surgery. I had a belt lipectomy, lipo in my belly and monds, and Brazilian butt lift. First, I will say the surgery was easier than I had imagined. I went in with the biggest fear of recovery. I was or of it for a few days on pain meds. Walking was a bit awkward for me at first. Everything is tight. I hardley bruised at all. Sitting has been the hardest thing so far because of the day I had injected in my butt. It feels like two hard balls. I never imagined it would feel that way.

uneven scars...day 14...post op.

I removed the tape off my incisions tonight. Im not sure why but my incision lines are uneven. One side is high and the other is low. Has this happened to anyone else? I am still swollen a lot on one side...the high side. Im freaking out!! My next appointment is in two weeks. If it stays this way I will be so upset. Has this happened to anyone else????

back to work...

This is my update for going back to work. I am a hairstylist. I returned back to work on day 11. It was a little rough. I had a bit of anxiety by the end of my day. I had another FOUR days off after that. I returned back to work in full swing by day 16. It had been business as usual. I took one of my drains out because it was getting infected. Still have the other drain in. Still draining about 25 cc a day. I'm seeing the shape of my bbl especially in my hips...I like what im starting to see now that the swelling is starting to go down. Once I recover from the lower body lift, ill be returning for lipo in my thighs. Also I'm getting more work on my bbl. Still trying to decide on the cellulaze. Who has had cellulaze? What are your thoughts? Is it worth it? Let me know please.

4weeks post op...

I am now FOUR weeks post op. I took out my second drain today. Finally drain free!!! It feels great! I started back to work last week working full days. Friday was rough but the days before were a breeze. I bought a support panty and wore it the first part of the week. I didn't wear it on friday and I could feel the difference. Bad idea. My scars are looking good. Much better than the last pic I posted. They are very thin. Im keeping my tape on them. I change them out every few days. Im going to schedule at my next visit for my second procedure. Ill be getting more fat transferred to my butt. Lipo in thighs inner to the knee. Also getting lipo in my flanks. Was interested in cellulaze but after reading a gazillion reviews have decided to not have it done. Im very excited to continue with my mommy makeover!! Posting before and after pics four weeks post op. This surgery and recovery was much easier than I anticipated...

Two months after surgery...

Im so happy with my new body. I getting into jeans I haven't worn in a long time. I love my new butt. I only got a small amount of fat in my butt but what a difference! Can't wait to go back for my second bbl when I get lipo in my thighs. Here are updated pics...

U look great! Omg I can't believe you went back behind the chair after 11days ?! Lol you're super woman! I had my arms done and a tummy tuck last January and I was off for 6 weeks . It was a rough decision to lose that much time at work . Especially not knowing how much of my clientele would still be there. . But even at 6 weeks I Struggled! lol it took me a few months to feel a little normal again. I don't know how u did it :)

Im a single mom...I just knew I had to do it....I expected the worse but it was so much easier than I expected. Thank jesus!! Just taking off eleven days I lost a few of my favorite clients. Some people just don't like to be inconvenienced....but God is good, he always brings new clients into our life!! Hope your surgery went well and you love your results...I can't wait to go in for my round two!

You look fantastic for 12 days out! I'm having LBL only -- no lip or BBL. Hope my recovery is as good as yours.

Welcome and thanks so much for sharing your experience with us!

You look great! Are you sitting on your butt already? I haven't had a BBL but I was under the impression that you couldn't sit on it for about 6 weeks post-op, to stop fat loss?

Please do keep us updated with your progress.

The doctor told me to put a pillow under my thighs to take the pressure off my butt. It works.

Ah okay. I'm not sure I would be brave enough to have multiple procedures done at once, but you sound like you're doing okay. I'm just a bit of a wimp when it comes to pain! Haha! :-)

Sorry for the few misspellings on the first post. Today I am going to work after twelve days of recovery. I stand on my feet all day. We will see how it goes. I still have two drains in. Ill let you know how it goes. Today is a bit easier as far as sitting on my butt. My scars are looking good. Ill post pics tonight of the incision line. That is when I am allowed to remove and change out tape.
