Having Lipo on Waist, Back and Sides W a Butt Lift in 5 Days - Tijuana, Mexico

So nervous. I have wanted this for so long but Im scared. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions? I have been reading the blogs but am trying to get some personal advice to ease my anxiety. :)

So I had my procedure. I can already tell a...

So I had my procedure. I can already tell a difference and I am still very swollen and sore. The procedure itself went really well. The doctor removed 3 liters of fat! I didn't even know I had that much to remove. He also removed 11 moles on my back and injected 500cc's into each butt cheek. I was hoping for around 800 cc's, but I did already have a little cusion to begin with so hopefully the 500 per cheek will be enough.

The procedure took a little over 3 hours. I slept 5 hours after. My surgery was at 7am and I didn't leave the clinic until 5pm.

I am very sore today. I have been reading a lot of reviews and many people say not to site or lay on your bottom if you want the fat cells to survive. So i have only been sitting and laying on my side. The compression garment is vital to recovery but so uncomfortable. I had to have my aunt help me put it on. I also had to have her help taking a shower because I couldn't bath myself.

The good news is for the first time in my life I have no love handles and no tummy. The doctor took out a lot of fat and I am already pleased with the results. The only thing I am concerned about is only having 500cc in each butt cheek, when I was initially hoping for 800-1000. We shall see how the results turn out.

I am not posting pictures yet, because I am so swollen and leaking. I will post them next week as the swelling goes down. Thanks everyone for the advice and kind words. I am already lovin my new self. I wish I could speed up time to see the results!!!!

Okay, so some people have been asking for pictures...

Okay, so some people have been asking for pictures. I will go ahead and post some even though I am SO swollen. The weird thing is that I am not bruising too much. Is this normal? I heard by the fourth day you have a ton of bruises. So far I don't have many at all.

Again, I also got 12 moles removed so I have a bunch of bandaids on. My garment is in the wash which is why I am not wearing it here. I wash it every couple days on "speed wash" because apparently you must wear it religiousIy for the first month. I can already tell I have a flatter stomach and flatter sides. Even with all the welling. I can't wait to see the results in a month!!!

The swelling is finally going down. I had hardly...

The swelling is finally going down. I had hardly any bruising at all. I am starting to be able to see my shape, and it's looking pretty good. I still wish he would have doubled the amount of cc he put into my butt. I have a nice bootie but I wanted a BIG one. Anyways, the latest pics are me, 2 weeks post op.
Dr. Luis Saurez

Very nice man. Very professional and respectable. Still wondering why he didn't give me the desired CC amount. Hoping I wont have to go back for another procedure because of it.

@blaqdiamond, I will let you know! I'm not having it done until Nov. due to finances but more that I'm really nervous. If you have a chance check out the website and maybe we can go together hahaha.
If you are unhappy with your body, I do recommend you changing it if it will improve the way you feel and live.

KIM794 I'm also having mine done in the Dominincan Republic. I've got quoted a price of $5,495. Dr Aljandro Hernandez charges $3800-4300 but that is not who I'm going to. I've been researching and I know that I def want it done in a hospital and not private clinic. I recommend you go to globalsurgerycenter.com for amazing packages. The have 2 locations, miami and the dominincan.
The price of $5,495 includes 2 day hospital stay. All the required fees for procedure, garmets, meds and a five night stay on a 5 star resort with 3 meals a day. Nurses on call and they say I wont have to lift a finger! They'll take care of me, help me do daily activities and transportation to and from the airport!
Super excited!!
