ok, I'm hearing different do's and dont's. I've heard that I can go back to work after a week, I can sit on it right after, so I'm now I'm confused after reading slot of reviews. I know that each person is different "butt"....;) it's all the same procedure so what is the proper way of caring for yourself after your surgery? The do's and dont's that I mentioned came from a doctor......smh and not knowing what to believe.

Pre op tomorrow guys 03/30/11, as the time gets closer I get more nervous than the day b4. But nevertheless I'm excited and ready to c this transformation. Happy healing to everyone that has already done it, and to the ones on there way.

Fresh out of surgery. More updates later, sleepy right now. But overall my dr and staff was awesome!

Ok, so I had my bbl yesterday. Still n pain but up and walk g already. I never been tired of laying down n my life.....lol. My doctor and his staff was awesome, I can't say that I would do again because of my low pain tolerance and the nausea. Two things I don't like, pain and vomiting. But I'm happy I tried it, and already you see major improvement to my body. As you see I didn't have one....lol. I straight up and down with rolls to go with it. Being it's hasn't been 24hrs yet I can't give you guys pics, but believe you me I will as soon as I can;) the pain is mostly in my butt and my lower stomach when I stand up, other then that, I'm doing well. On my way back to sleep now, ttyl.:)

I'm up and walking more and more everyday....


I'm up and walking more and more everyday. I'm not on the pain meds that much anymore, I'm down to one pill every 6 to 8 instead of 2 every 4. I'm still sore but manageable now. All I'm doing is eating a little fruit, soup, and yogurt and back to sleep, and using the restroom. I still have yet to do #2. Idk what I'm going to do it's ar just wiping urine, I guess I have to call nurse moma to wipe me....lol. So embarrassing

Ok, today is greater than the previous days. Im...


Ok, today is greater than the previous days. Im doing jus great, I'm sitting on the toilet now. I put on spandex and a white tank top. Right now now I have a speed bump behind me with a some hips......lol. I have to wait to see what the results are as far as the shape. What I do know is I have a table top ass now, I can see that much but as far as the roundness I can't tell. Jus a wide load coming thru.......lol. Most of the sweeping has gone down, but I have alot left also. So really just time and patience. I'm really excited because with all said and done, I have something I never had ever before(a butt). Stomach is flat like in high school, and butt is like one of the other classmates....lol. Still taking my meds faithfully and getting the much needed rest that's required. Enjoying the new me.....until next time;)

The 22nd made week one for me. Everything is going well. I'm off my meds except the antibiotics and the herbal meds for swelling. I'm still continuously laying down but the pain has subsided. So far I'm not too impressed with the results, but the dr and staff says I need more time to heal. For starters he only put 400cc ea. Cheek due to that's all it would take(not his fault), but they're saying it will expand after time. I have a nice size butt but I wanted to projection to it, so we' ll see. Yesterday, 04/25 I was able to put my compression garment on the second notch, so I'm happy about that. I still have visible swelling in my lower stomach, but the dr said that will go down within time also. Patience is a virtue!

Today makes two weeks and one day. I love what i...


Today makes two weeks and one day. I love what i see so far. I finally took the garment off and looked at myself.......WoW! It could be bigger but I'm satisfied because I had NOTHING before. After pix coming soon. I want to wait until one month, also I'm on the last row of my compression garment, happy that the swelling is going down at a rapid pace so far but not happy that I forsee myself spending one hundred and sixty dollars three more times. Any suggestions on where I can get one besides the doctors office?

05/06 makes 3weeks post op. I'm still hunched...


05/06 makes 3weeks post op. I'm still hunched over after sitting or laying down. If I stretch, bend or twist I get pain in my back and stomach. I'm still swollen and back on meds. Looking gud nevertheless. I'm happy and jus waitin for time to go by. One more week for after pix guys. Jus trying to give it a lil more time for swelling to go down. Until next time, shake what dr gave ya!........lol

I am 3 days away from being one month post...


i am 3 days away from being one month post op(05/15/2011). i am still swollen around the stomach and waist area but looking much better than i had before. i would have loved to been a little bigger but the doctor says it will stretch after it softens up. my stomach is much flatter, the rolls on my back are minimal, and i think the waist and stomach will eventually go down with time giving the illusion of a much bigger butt. will keep you guys updated with more pictures as time goes on.

What NOT to do........don't wait too long when ur garment isn't fifth tight n e more. It's been 12 days and my stomach has a bulge(kangaroo pouch). I had been searching for a less pricier garment but in the end I still ordered it, so ladies DO NOT hestitate on buying ur garments they are an essential part of ur body. You must have at ALL times a garment that has a tight fit to ur body or swelling will occur in places u don't want it. It's sad I had to find out but the gud news is, it will go away once I'm in my new garment. Happy healing, n wish me luck I'm gonna need it or I will b very disappointed:(

Everything is awesum n well. I don't think I would...

Everything is awesum n well. I don't think I would ever do it again or n e type of cosmetic surgery, but it was well worth it. My pain tolerance was way too low, I felt like I was dying the first n second day. Transitioned very smoothly, along wit the heal'n.

Yes I am still a little swollen on my lower part as well However it has gone down significantly. Still waiting on final results to see if my bottom part of my butt pops out.

Hey BUTTIMSTILL, hows the swelling has it gone down, if not have your P.S. check for fluid. This happened to me, I had the pooch shortly after surgery, It was fluid and had to be drained twice!!! So keep that in mind Happy Healing Princess!!!

  • Reply
so sorry. i missed the message. i bought the one at macys but it doesnt hold the stomach area too well. so i need to order another one but not from the dr. i found a website that charges only $76 for one with the butt out. contemporarydesigninc.com go to full body support its the sc-290 brazilian above the knee body shaper.

Hang in there girl!! Also for garmetns try this website called www.designveronique.com I bought garments from there when I had my tummy tuck and they were pretty good and not so pricey. Also...check ebay. I found a great deal on one there also but had already ordered form the website.

Exactly, what was your doc selling? the spanx?
  • Reply
Really couldn't tell u. I looked inside my garment but it only says the size. They ordered from sum catalog. I found sum but none has the hooks, all zippers n velcro
  • Reply
I found a place online contemporary design Inc. I think I'm going to order from them 86.00 at least I can get 2 for what the dr ofc charges
  • Reply
Try looking online, they also sell the compression garnments at jcpennys, you dont have to get the exact same kind, just something similar that will compress you like a gridle, i bought one and it is too big, so i think im going to find something else
  • Reply
Cool, I was jus talkn to my moms about it and she said either sears or jcpenneys had a helluva sale, we probably missed it tho.:( n e how thanx b/c I kno I could have like 2 to 3 for that price.

Hi ButtImStillBeau, I understand how you feel. It's only a week, give it time sweetie. Tomorrow I will be 5 weeks post op. In the beginning my butt was high up, and now it's gradually going down, still a little flat on the bottom of my butt cheeks which is making me feel a little down, but I too am still swollen (lower back and a little on the belly. Many say it takes a good 3 months to see final results, so I am waiting patiently. I am 5'8 weighed at time of surgery 191lbs I had 750 cc's in each cheek. I had to buy a new compression garment because the first one is big on me already. I don't have b4 pics up, but did manage to take two yesterday which I will hopefully post today.

Happy Healing!

It's hard, I'm trying to be patient. The dr was only able to get 400cc he said it started coming back out. The results so far are good but I hoped for more. Today I put on some jeans and I think what he put was just right. Girl, y is the top of my butt sticking out of my jeans. I was like wow! But when I hit my one month mark I will post after pix. Thanx a million and happy healing to u too. Flaunt it!......lol
  • Reply
Buttim still, your doc put 400 ccs and it came out? that sounds strange because some people get over 1000 ccs i wonder if he was putting it in deep enough...dont u? im glad your satisfied though. i had 500 in each cheek and have a bubble butt when i put on my clothes,very cute. now waiting for final result to see if i want it bigger!
  • Reply
Yes girl! I was like damn ppl get like 750 to 800cc n I couldn't even get 500. Disappointed! But since I put on my jeans it looked very nice, even my spandex. It's starting to take on it's shape.....lol but I truly wanted it a lil bigger. Maybe when my waist get smaller it will.........hopefully!
