Ok guys, so I am actually having my BBL tomorrow...

Ok guys, so I am actually having my BBL tomorrow morning (4/29/11) at 8am. I am so nervous now.

I'm 22yrs old and some might think I shouldn't do this so early, but I have my whole youth to live out and I don't plan on having children anytime soon. With that being said, I don't want to spend the next 10yrs of my life (God willing) with a flat ass.

I'm 5'8 and I weight 200lbs I've been wanting to lose weight for the longest, but I haven't gotten around to it. Im tall so I hold the weight well, no one ever believes me when I tell them how much I weigh...anyway, I know with the new look of my body, it's going to encourage me to get into the gym and work towards a more perfect me.

All the months leading to the BBL I was excited and not even a little afraid or nervous, but 24hrs pre-opt and I feel those butterflies partying in my stomach. I hope everything goes well. I'll try to take some before pics tonight and upload them, and I will definitely take some after pics to upload. I'll keep you guys updated through my post-opt journey. Wish me luck!

Ok, so it's been 17hrs since my procedure. There...

Ok, so it's been 17hrs since my procedure. There were two doctors working on me and it took them about 4hrs. Usually, I have a high tolerance for pain, but can I just tell you guys I spent 3 of the 4 hours crying. They gave me drug to make me extremely sleepy and they numbed the area they would be working on. I had my upper and lower abdomen liposuctioned, also my mid back (had to get rid of those rolls) and my flanks and lower back. The most painful was my upper abdomen. I could feel him going back and forth on my rib cages and that was the most pain I ever felt. He kept offering to stop, but I told him no. All the money I spent and I'm already sliced open in the table, I told him he better continue because I need to look sexy (lol) When the surgery was over, one of the doctors and a nurse wrapped me up real good and tight with the compression garment then escorted me to the recovery room. An hour later, theyre driver brought me home.

Ok, so a little update. It's been over 24hrs since...

Ok, so a little update. It's been over 24hrs since I came back from the center and I've never been hit by a car but if I could imagine what it would feel like, this would be it. My body was hurting so bad, just the thought of moving literallyase me cringe. Now I have a very high tolerance for pain, but you better believe I've been popping those pain killers every 4-6 hrs as suggested. At around 9pm today I noticed it wasnt as painful as before. It's easier for me to walk and move so with the help of my lovely mom I decided to take a shower. Currently my copression garment is drying because it had to be washed due to it being totally covered in blood the was leaking out. But as of right now I think I'm done with the leaking (fingers crossed) I'm just hoping as time goes on I feel better and better because feeling pretty good now. Well, I'll update you guys later and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.... I'm pretty bored!

Ok, so today is day 3 and I'm not in much pain...

Ok, so today is day 3 and I'm not in much pain anymore, it just feels like I've had an intense work out. I've stopped taking the pain medication and although I still move like a grandma, I'm feeling much better (yay me!). One thing I will mention which is very important to me is I'm about to hop in the shower so I have all the padding and the compression garment off and I look the same as before I even did the BBL. I'm completely baffled right now, I don't know if its too soon to tell, or if its because of the swelling, but l just look like a less wide version of my pre-opt self. The rolls that I clearly remember him attacking,are still here, and the gut that I clearly remember him butchering is still here. And my booty just looks like one of those long "mom jeans" butt. I'm so devestated right now but I'm trying not to jump to conclusions. If anyone experienced anything like this, or saw a not so great result in the begining but had a complete turn around in the end, please let me know. I need some encouragement. Thanks! Oh...and I have a follow up with him tomorrow so he will be feeling my wrath!!! Hope he has some answers for me. I'll let you guys know how it went tomorrow. Later dolls...

He was a great doctor. He cracked a lot of jokes and made me feel totally comfortable. His staff were also great.
