New and Improved Me for 2013 - Chicago, IL

Hello to All
I recently found this site and have literally fallen in love and somewhat obsessesed with reading all the reviews and looking at all the wonderful wish pics and before/after pics.
A few questions that I would love to have some help with:
1) Has anyone had a bbl done in the chicago area?
2) If so, with what doctor?
3) How do I find the wish pics?

I have scheduled 3 consultations for Feb 16th and 2 on Feb 18th. I really don't have the money to finance a trip out of the state. So staying in Chicago is ideal for me at this time. I'm sincerely hoping to have the heart shaped A$$ of my dreams. My wonderful and supportive boyfriend is an A$$ lover and I just can't wait to get this BBL done so 1) I can shop and purchase all the rompers, leggings, skirts and fitted dresses that I see ladies with beautiful sexy shapes wearing, 2) purchase and wear a bikini for the first time in my life 3) so I no longer have to feel self-conscience about my shape from behind.4) so my boyfriend will never want to take his hands off me ;-D
I have ALWAYS wanted to change my shape as genetics delt me a so-so hand. I am shapely but I defintely need some additional help. I have lost approximately 50lbs over the year and now I am ready to take this transformation up a few notches. I will soon be graduating with my doctorate degree and this will be the present to myself for all of the hard work I have completed earning 2 Masters degrees and now this doctoral degree. I deserve an ass after all of the sitting working to write papers and what-not, LOL!!! So ladies... please join me on my journey to a New and Improved Me for 2013

Hello ladies!!! So... As you can tell I add my pics... I must have some courage... LOL! At any rate this is what I am working with. I look great in clothes. But just not naked ;-(
I am currently 5'8 and 190lbs I am thinking about losing some whieght. Maybe to get around 175lbs. I have my consults next week. So I will wait to see what the doctors say. I would love to go to Dr J in Suwanne (sp) GA. But I simply cannot afford those prices. I am however entertaining the idea of Dominican Republic or Mexico. I just hate the idea of travel. I would rather stay in Chicago.
Well that's all for now... Nite-Nite...

Well Chicas... My 1st consultation is Saturday. ...

Well Chicas...
My 1st consultation is Saturday. I'm not really excited as much as anxious n frustrated. Anxious bcuz I really want to talk to the doctor n get sme answers. But also frustrated wth the lack of doctors who perform this surgery in Chicago. I have already prepared my speech abt cultural differences n the body image of a black woman n its significance. It is my hope tht these doctors will b open to having a candid conversation. N i will b open to realistic ecpectations. However i do not want a conservative doctor questioning my desire to have a great shelf butt wth awesome projection n tht hour glass shape frm the front. I believe I can have all of tht but damn do I really have to go out of the state n/or possibly the country to get it??? Geez. Not to mention the extra extra extra far away date just to have a consultation for some of these doctors. I knw they appear to b the best n I wud luv to have them do my procedure but I am going to tap n2 the resources n Chicago frst n see what happens... wish me luck!

Ok ladies of Chi-town! I went to three...

Ok ladies of Chi-town!
I went to three consultations. Drs. Ashpole-Schaumburg, Dr. Stein, and Dr. Weiner.

Out of those three, Dr. Stein was the best for me. I have another consult scheduled for Dr. Dreyfess in Frankfort. I will be sure to let you ladies know how that went. My goal is to really exhaust all available option in Illinois and surrounding states. So far, I had two lady drs. (African American) in mind. One is in Detroit and the other in Indianapolis. So we will see how it goes...
If you ladies have had some decent consults in illinois/Chicago area. Please let me know.

Thanks!

Wow, you go girl, big up to you and such major accomplishments! This will be a great gift for you, you won't regret it! I underwent surgery 10 days ago with Salama w/1800 cc's. So it really depends on the skin's elasticity and the amt of fat harvested. I'm very happy w/ my results. Good luck on your journey, can't wait to see the finished product

How much are they charging you? Are they allowing you to pay in payments or all? I am also trying to get a better body but i know it cost.

Hey Chica, We are rocking in the same boat!!! I recently had a consultation with Dr. Stein, I also spoke to one of his previous clients who had her BBL done 8 years ago and she is completely satisfied with her results. I am still on the fence about who I will eventually go to. Would love to stay and get it done here in Chicago but the doctors here don't have the same rave reviews in numbers as some of the other out of town doctors. I am also considering Dr. Perry...he seems to have a craft in sculpting the hourglass figure....keep me posted on whether or not you find someone here. Thanks!!! and congrats on your accomplishments, just finished my Masters in December :)!!!

Congrats Lady on your Doctorate Degree and your BBL Journey. I am also from Chicago and will be going to Dr. Yily De Los Santos in March

Thanks Chica! I have heard a lot of good things about her. I am sure you are mad excited. I have been telling the other ladies that I guess I will have to go out of state to get my BBL done. How long did it take you to get your appointment with Dr. Yily. Are you going by yourself?

I actually didn't take long but have had my appointment for a while...I received my quote from her back in August (before she was popular lol) then I had to reschedule my surgery in December so I'm finally going YAY!! Anywho, my mother is going with me, she didn't want me to be out of the ciuntry having surgery by my lonesome

Hello I am From Chicago also goin to Dr. Campos. The docs in Chicago were high and their work didnt warrant those prices. My trip surgery and recovery house stay is still cheaper than what I would've paid in Chicago...

Hey Girl U r like the umpteenth person who is lookn to go to dr campos. Lbvs!!! What has been yur experience so far regarding scheduling yur appnmt. Did it take a long time, r u payn up front or using credit.

Hey girlie! Chi-Town check in. I am from Chicago also and did chose to go with Jimerson. I am scheduled for Oct 4, 2013. I actually found my trip online with airfare, rental and hotel for $638 per person for 8 days. If you schedule your date out a little the prices are cheaper. I wish you luck on your journey and I know you will be able to find someone. Look up Dr. Kenneth Stein. He did my friends boobs and they look great. I think he does BBL not sure, but his site will have info.Keep us posted!

I'm from the Chi! I have researched extensively! Over many yrs and I have yet to find a surgeon in Chicago that gets the results I'm looking for. I'm schedule with Dr.jimerson at the end of April. He is expensive $$ not including the traveling cost...geez! But I have thought about this for soooo long...I just have to have it. A lot of girls have been raving about dr.yily. I emailed her my pics a few days ago just to get a quote and hear what she has to say...I have yet to hear back. Please keep me posted...I'd really like to know if there's an awesome BBL doc in the Chi! Best wishes...
