5 days post op!

I just turned 25 and I have been wanting the BB: for about 3 yrs now and Im finally doing it! I have tried everything and nothing is going to give me the shape and size of ASS that Im wanting! So i have already scheduled my procedure but my Dr is more conservative than what I originally thought.

I want about 500 cc's per cheek (or more) but he's apprehensive to do it. I've paid my $2000 deposit already and want to make sure Im going to get exactly what i want. What is a good amount of cc's to get to insure a BIG round booty with enough projection?

This is supposed to be exciting but Im more nervous than anything that the Doctor isn't on board with my expectations!!! I Already paid my deposit!! I called the office today hopefully she calls me back with some news to calm my nerves!

Has anyone done the Aqualipo?? Any feedback?

Why are u having to redo it?
  • Reply
I'm having it redone because after the swelling went done so did my results :'( I was injected with 600cc's and if it stayed the way it looked when it was swollen I would've been fine with that but one day it was nice n plump then I woke up n it was gone...LOL...

Thank you! Yes I know I have been researching for about a year and def want it to be larger than a typical butt lol I want 500-600 cc's per buttock and I just talked to my Dr and he assured me that I will be satisfied so until then all I can do is wait! 2 months to go!

That's good to hear. 2 months is gonna go FAAAAST!! I have mine in 1 month, but I've done it in august last yr and this is a retouch (different doctor tho), so I kinda know what to expect, except it doesn't make the pain less bearable.

Good luck on your search and surgery. 500cc is good to get a nice shape, just realize that there will be some fat that will be absorbed back into the body that won't take, and your physician should be aware of that, if not after a couple of months you will look no different than before you did.the surgery. Do some extensive research if you can, cuz the last thing you want to do is invest a lot of time and money to only be unsatisfied and wanting to do it again.

I know, at first he seemed to be in the same page but when I went to see him last week he was like " Im not going to give you a HUGE butt" lol I was like I dont want huge! Just proportioned. Ive already paid the $2K and am a little worried that I shouldve gone with my first choice Dr. Salama in Florida. ALL of his reviews are great!

Good luck on your procedure, I chose Dr.Salama, so far so good Im from Texas myself, but after all the pics and reviews I decided to dish out the extra bucks and go with him, I reckon it will be a drive but were looking at it as a mini vacation my family and I, they can hit the beach while i suffer in pain,,,,lol
