Brazilian Butt Lift - Culver City, CA

Hi RS ladies. I finally paid in full for my BBL...

Hi RS ladies. I finally paid in full for my BBL and some scar revisions!!!
Its really happening !!! So excited.
I was hesitating between Dr. Bruno and Dr. Hughes at first...
When i went to Dr. Bruno, he took his time to check on my requested (?) areas
And showed me some pictures of the similar cases ( bbl of similar body types and shapes as me ) he was very patient with me answering all my questions. Also, Mary (?) who works there got BBL done with dr. Bruno six month ago and showed me how great she looked.
He gave me the price of $8500 with their special deal.

When i went to Dr.Hughes for the first time, Yup i had total three meetings with him.
He told me i was too skinny to do BBL because i did NOT have enough fat.
He told me to gain at least 10 lbs just to be able to do surgery.
Im 5' 4" and i was back and forth between 118 and 120 lbs.
then i started eating eating and eating but it seemed like the more i ate the less i weighed ugh..still frustrating on gaining weight...But somehow i managed to gain 5 more pounds then i went back to dr. Hughes. I got ok with dr. Hughes with " realistic expectation" i want bubbly butt but i am not sure i have enough fat....sigh im excited but worried at the same time.

I gained more weight and i now weigh around between 132 and 134.
I feel so gross eating all day hopefully its worth it...
Oh anyway i decided to go with dr. Hughes because of his skills lol
And specially he does it with minimal scars thats really big plus with me

I have lots of things to buy before thursday...


I'm having surgery next Thursday with him can't wait hope u are heeling very fast and well good luck!!!
