Hi diva's, I'm new to RS and have been stalking...

Hi diva's, I'm new to RS and have been stalking this site for a couple weeks now(lol). Very excited that this forum provides an abundance of information for others contemplating any cosmetic surgery. I've taken plenty of notes & researched doctor in the US & the DR, & come to the reality that financially I'm not trying to be in debt after this procedure. I've spoken w/ Dr. Jimmerson, Dr. Michael Jones, Dr. Grenga from US - DR. Yily & Duran in the DR... I absolutely love DR. Durans reviews & before/after pics but I am still waiting on my email quote. It is a little hard waiting on an response but I did get the general auto reply but after reading more reviews may be i should have added photos of myself. So I plan to resend an email w/ pics & in Spanish to see if i'll her a quicker response ( Translator App). I did find her & her English speaking assistant [Elizabeth Belen] on FB, I sent a message this morning to her assistant so I will update later if I've gotten response or not in a couple days.
Good luck in your journey :-) I was just in your shoes not to long ago. As far as getting in touch with Dr.duran use the translation definitely & send ur pics, wish pics all in one email and send it several times, u have to be persistent and she will respond. I got a quote after 3weeks of sending 5 - 10 email a day or every other day. Lol... I had really became a stalker & Once you get your quote your going to feel like a kid in a candy store
Thank you @lizyliz for that advice I'm going to become her next stalker Lol... I know you was psyched!! Lol and thanks again!
Yesss!!! @mysexyback35 lol... It felt like x-mas morning I've been waiting for this gift :-) lol.. Ready to send my deposit to lock in mid Feb

Pics of Me pre-op

Thanks Hun @ sweet mahogani
Hello doll welcome to realself!! I see that ur from STL & so am I, I'm also scheduled to get my bbl in March of 2014 with Dr. Tachmes in Miami GOOD LUCK with ur procedure!!

Changing from Dr. Duran to Dr. Baez for LIPO to BBL & Hips

Hi Diva's so after diligently emailing, messaging and calling duran's office I've decided to seek assistance with another qualified Surgeon in the DR. So I've emailed Dr. Australia Baez and with in 20 minutes got a detailed response with price, instructions, directions, phone numbers directly to her etc. After researching and reading numerous RS Baez Dolls reviews I've decided to stick wit her. She encourages you to ask her any questions and promptly responds when she's not in consult or meting a client. I appreciate the fact that she only does 1-2 (BBL, TT,LIPO, BA) per day and is very concerned with your health pre-op, the reason is bc she does corrective surgery, for cancer patients and other corrective procedures during the week as well. So she only does the body work 3 days a week.

So what I've found out is that Duran is changing her standards as far as choice in patients and what I assume the problem is when it comes to Dr. Duran is that if you need to lose 10-15lbs before the surgery instead of her emailing you that SHE WONT RESPOND TO YOUR EMAIL AT ALL so if you have not gotten a reply back due to stalking (LOL) then this may be a reason why. ** One of our RS sisters ended up going thru Bella Vita Consultants to schedule her apt & get quote since Duran wasn't resonding back; and per Durans response back she suggested that she dropped 10-15lbs first then resubmit her photos for a quote! This was only communicated thru the consultant not the RS sister directly. This kinda left a sour taste for me because it makes no sense that she will not reply back but instead reply to the consultant ( BTW fee is $150 to go thru bellavitaconsultants.com). So since I didn't personally go thru the consultants nor did I get a response back I just went on about my way, bc I was going to drop 10 lbs min anyway before my procedure for better results. So I hope this helps clear up some anxiety for those still waiting on a response from Dr. Duran.
Hi Hun! I am glad you are getting your date. :) You are beautiful and after this surgery your body will be banging. I am a stress eater as well so I know the feeling. TO lose the weight and for it to start to creep back. I am starting my new lifestyle as well tomorrow. I have never been big on eating alot of processed foods. However, Royal Farms fried chicken is my go to when I am stressed..Good luck and be safe. I am sure you will look stunning :)
Thank you suga!! And believe me I understand bc the sweets are my comfort food ugh I'm craving some vanilla Oreo's now Lol. Thanks again. @sweetTemptation
Congrats on your date sis :)

Soon to be Baez Doll, but detoxing the fat.

Well I've been detoxing this fat with my It work body wraps & speeding up my fat loss process by drinking my GREENS on the go daily. Still minimizing my meals so that I don't over eat, and eating more fruit & vegetables also. Thank God for this defining Gel to help tighten, tone & firm my skin as I'm detoxing this fat around my waist. Once I finish wrapping I will take pics for you'll.

On another note Baez booties are looking better & better by the day & I'm so happy that I chose her as my PS. I am in love with her work on most recent RS sis Germanbooty, her BBL results are the bomb.com check her page out ladies- she gives the details to you straight up!
I'm scheduled with Baez for January 24, 2014...I'm so excited. Now I must find a recovery house.
What do you use or how do you do the detox wraps? I still have another 40lbs of baby fat to lose so getting myself on board with wraps should be a good addition to my current diet...Thx :)
@Bxbev79 Hi Hun, & hopefully she'll ( Baez) will get back to you soon. But definitely if you need to get a jump start on the detox process bc I don't work out hardly ( can't fit a gym into my budget right now) but will after SX. So what I use is the Skinny Pack which consist of the body wraps(4 in a box), fat fighter pills & the defining gel. And thruout the week I drink the Greens to keep balance & detoxing. The link to order is http://TyliciaAnderson.myitworks.com IM me if you have other questions. Congrats & welcome on your journey lets get healthy together lol.

2 weeks Results after using Detox wraps.

Ok ladies I said that I would update you'll on my results after using 4 body wraps for 2 weeks. The pics shows my before I started wrapping and this morning when I removed the final wrap. This It Works detox wraps definitely does work! Like I've said before you can wrap once a week or as soon as the 3rd day after you've used a wrap. The all natural ingredients continue to work thru the pores of your body for up to 3 days. I use my defining gel 2x's a day on the days In between wrapping to help tighten & tone the skin. Also I take my Fat Fighter pills on those days that I'm eating large or fatty meals w/ lots of carbs ex. Pasta, fried foods, breads & cakes Etc. these pills work wonders because they help break down the carbs into waste instead of it storing into our bodies as Fat. It only allows the protein of the meal digest bc that's the part that we need. So for those that have issues with No carbs diets don't fret bc these Fat Fighter pills can be ur new BFF lol. I have lost 3lbs & 4 inches off my waist, before I measured at 37in, today it's 33 inches. Still have more fat to detox bc I want to be as healthy as possible for faster healing & recovery efforts so I will now wrap once a week until my surgery in January..

Ladies holidays are coming up & y'all know we get off track w/ eating around Nov & dec lets get a jump start so if we do plan to over eat you'll have the tools to help detox it ( fat fighter pills, body wrap, gel & greens) I'm trying to be prepared & actually since I've been minimizing portions my appetite hasn't been too large good luck Sisters lets get healthy & sexy at the same damn time lol..
Losing weight! Looking good!
Thank you Hun!
I'm sure trying & thanks Hun!

Switched back to Dr.Duran from Dr. Baez

Hi RS Dolls. So I had decided to try one last time for a quote from Dr. Duran since I had dropped some weight and she finally responded with a quote for lipo sculpture w/ BBL. okay so what changed my mind about going to Baez is probably your Question??? Well I always wanted Duran from the start but couldn't get a reply back so I moved on to the next choice. But after reviewing a RS sister procedure with Dr. Baez, she wasn't totally satisfied with her outcome thus far- however from what I can tell she still looked great but I did notice some volume loss. Then I don't understand why some of Baez patients won't share immediate pictures of her work, this will help some of us whose going to see her in the future gain confidence in her work. I understand everyone is swollen directly after surgery but let's keep it 100% real for the next sister & show the photo's in stages ( even if you can't see a immediate difference.
I hope everyone understands that you dont see significant changes sometimes until after week 2, and it takes a full 6 months to be totally healed. So with that being said I Vow to take as many photos as possible ( even get the nurse to do it for me) from day of surgery till I leave & recovering back home. So this was the reason I decided to change my Doctor, not enough reassurance for me. I don't want to come back for a round two if I don't need to. So with that being said Dr. Duran was my first choice & I'm Happy with my decision.

** ladies if you don't get a reply back from Duran immediately drop some weight & retake your photo's & send her a new email titled "Updated photos after weight loss" and see if that helps you. Good Luck!
Hey hun. When did you resend the email.
Hi hun I did it like Sunday night, and it was about a month after I sent the initial email.

Scheduled for February 3rd 2014 for Duran!

*Appointment made ?
*$250 Deposit sent ? ( make sure you take your receipt copy with you).
*Flight booked ?
*Emailed Silhouette RH ( Angie's) for availability.?
* List of Supplies been made- planning to pack lite. Starting to order items now.

I will continue wrapping starting back this week but only once a week. Especially due to the Thanksgiving & Xmas holiday feast that my family throws lol. Duran advised me that i didn't need to lose anymore weight. But I will continue to drop inches off of stomach ( love handles) to ensure that I get as flat as she can get me in my final results. I notice the less aggressive she has to get the better your recovery efforts are. I'm only planning to stay a full 7 days so i pray that I don't experience any complications ( lifting that up to God) post operatively & that I can leave on my 7th Day to finish recovering at home where I will have my parents & my fiancé's help. Praying that he can make it back from deployment to go with me to the DR. So Happy he's so Supportive not to mention he's paying for it all as my Gift, so Thankful to God for him!!

I'm thinking about getting the natural pill to increase your blood levels because I am a little anemic. And this month i will start eating my Liver, gravy & onions at least twice a month until February & eat more nuts to help boost my hemoglobin/blood levels. Hopefully it helps bc god knows i pray that i won't need a blood transfusion afterwards. Well I'll chat with you later ladies & Good luck & happy recovery to all my sisters whose on the other side now. :)
Go sexual chocolate! We rock! I will be following your journey. Can you tell me how you sent the deposit. Was it easy? Thank you!
Oh thank you Hun lol and i sent it thru my banks international wire transfer department. That's the only ways she is accepting deposits from what I hear. Don't do PayPal, or Western Union.
Ok. Thanks. She did say i can do from my bank just wanted to know how that works

I Need to boost my Hemoglobin Level??

Then ladies you may want to try the all natural hemo boost daily supplements if you're anemic or don't love to eat Liver ( which I do ?) then ladies try this. Thanks to RS sister Bklynbeauty for this info. I will be purchasing today!
Hey love , I see ur a fellow future Duran doll .. I'll be following ur journey !!! Good luck mama
Yes i am & cant wait! Ok & Thank you Hun.
Hey girl, are you still going with Duran? My friend and I are confirmed for Duran for Feb 4th! We are coming from DC, let us know and we could possibly meet up.

Getting prepared for Duran in Feb.

I have started receiving some of my supplies & made a Walmart Run also. Thanks to RS sis GEEMMY for the tip on the zip front gown w/ pockets for your drains ( makes it easier too move around). Only got a few more items to get like my multivitamin lipo kit w/ arnica, white t- shirts, heating pad, thermometer. anti embolism thigh high socks & ab boards. I'm planning to pack light just in case I have to roll solo- dont want to have too much luggage Post-op.

I already have my pain med's some good old Vicodin 300 mg but i think I'm gonna as my doctor at my physical for some Percocet, they work within 15 min especially when I'm having a migraine headache. I be on cloud 9 ( oh gosh almost sound like a druggy lol) .

Recovery House vs Hotel suites!!!!!

Okay so I can't settle on one RH ughh. The more reviews I read the more I'm unclear about which one in want to go with. I understand that mishaps happen & conflict arises but I'm just losing faith in some of these RH. So I've been researching some of the hotels, apartment rentals nearby CIPLA. And read a few reviews where ladies ended up leaving their RH to stay at or initially stayed at & just hired a nurse & driver. I ran across Plaza Florida Suites which is one block from CIPLA & includes free breakfast I think that if my boo comes with me he would be comfortable in our own space & he'll be able to go to the gym & get in the pool ( while i watch of course). I've also read that Duran often has patients that stay there & she sends a nurse their to check on the ladies & empty drains. I'm sure there is additional fees if you need the nurse to stay longer periods of time & some that cook. Thanks to another RS sis ( forgot her page name ) that posted the contact info but here is the link to check it out & I will post a few pic's too.

I will probably use Jose I think is his name as my driver -I will find his number & post for anyone interested.

If any of the Vet's know of any good nurses & cooks please let me know. Well Sisters take it easy until next time. Smooches????
girl, I love your transformation already! You look great ☺ Since were practically neighbors, we should get together after we're all healed lol. Duran Dolls taking over Hampton Roads ☺
Thanks suga!!! And definitely it sounds like a plan & I will check in on ya.
anyone looking to go to duran late dec, or early jan??

Wish Pictures

So initially I didn't have any wish pictures I just wanted Duran to flatten my stomach & round my booty out, pretty much work with what i got & sculpt it. But I've been booth watching & determined there is a type that i think will work best with my foundation thus far. The sweetheart booty with projection is what I ?. So I have found a few pictures that I've fallen in love with. Enjoy & I had to throw in the IG post ?it!!!

Dra. Duran's contact info

For those that want to get in contact with Duran for a quote. Ladies unread on another RS sis profile that Duran has a 1 email rule & she may not answer when you send multiple request. I can attest to that initially when information started contacting Duran I did go into Stalker mode ( Lol) and only got her automatic reply message so I gave up for a month & tried again this month after wrapping to drop some pounds them excitedly ingot a reply.
So ladies all I can say is drop as much as you can & make sure that you are under 180lbs or else she won't respond. She emphasizes that you must be healthy & have that hemo level at to at least 12.

Make sure that your email has you weight, height, any medical conditions you have, front, side & back naked shots of yourself; a wish picture along with the request procedures you want. Ladies be very realistic with your photo compared to your body size. I actually didn't send a wish picture with none of my emails I just told her what procedures i wanted, & just mentioned to make my waste small & booty round w/ a little projection.

Well I hope I've helped answer some of the newbies searching for answers concerning Duran & her contact info. Good luck Diva's let's get sexy together????.
What the name of the wraps and pills that your using?
It's called It Works body wraps & the pills are called Fat Fighter Pills also made by ItWorks.
Hello sexy woman.. Just dropping by your page to show you some love... Nope I never been to DR! not me haha gotta love it and gotta pass the love! cracks me up every time I see.. that B us BitCheS in a few months with a grin from one end to another like the Jokers lol xxx

Soon to be Duran Doll - pic of pills & gel

Some of you ladies wanted to know what the fat fighter pills w/ carb inhibitors & Defining Gel that I use to help me lose them inches from my stomach look like. Well Here ya go.

I use the gel twice daily on any area of my body an the Fat fighter pills I only take when I'm eating large, fatty meals so that it won't allow the carbs to store in my body.
hi there , I know you must be supercited for your trip .. I seen a pic with those wrap things im gonna assume your trying to lose weight honestly in like 2weeks by using herba life I dropped so much weigh< didn't even really have to work out ..... I think its the appetite suppressant that in it .. mayb you can try. but will be following you cant wait to see your results good luck on your journey
Just checking on my doppleganger xx *Heyyy * ;) what a blast we had the other day tears & all lol.. felt really good with all that's going on on my end.. thks for that your a real troop. Are you still taking the FatFighter pills & are they really working love? I'm deft going to invest on the Defining Gel so I can use with the wraps & thinking about the FF pills not sure cause I hate taking any type of pills for dieting lol...hugs Sexy Mama
Hey boo no problem you know how we do!! Lol still praying for strength for all that u got going on. But yes intake them whenever eating big meals or fatty foods I just pop 2 after I've eaten & drink plenty of water with it. And normally the next day i will have a BM ( sorry tmi) but that's how I know that it works bc it won't allow the carbs to digest Into your body.

Physical & Prescriptions Done?

So I went to get my annual Physical today and I shared with my docter that I was traveling to have SX in the DR. She advised me that she's been hearing a lot about women going to Spain for their breast & going to the DR for BBL. she wanted to make sure that I was all up to date on my shots which I am, so I was good in that area. She did the normal urinalysis, and since i had eaten already she still got blood work from me to check my hemo level. I have to wait a few days for this results & with tomorrow being Thanksgiving that'll prob be next week. Also she gave me a script to go have my full panel blood work done at the hospital so i will take care of that next week as well. Got's to make sure I am as healthy as possible. I will update y'all on that once I know my results. We'll see if these blood builder are working for me. She also gave me all of my prescriptions needed for post- op care that Duran requires., all except the heparin shots & the multivitamins bc i will get those from my make me heal Lipo kit. Can't forget my pain pills, i have Vicodein & Percocet on deck. So I'm on my way!!!!!

So I've been looking around for ways to help me sleep better post-op so that I don't ruin my booty and I ran across another RS sis page & she posted a pic of this float for pregnant women & I actually think it could work for our new booties we may have to flip it so that it's in the position of our butt instead of our stomach. Otherwise it's buyin the large foam wedge off of amazon & cutting a whole in it to sleep on once I get back home. Well ladies that's all for right now. Smooches ????
I'm happy for you I go to Florida on the 3rd so we r true sisters lol... I like the float but we're would I use it on the beach?

Sleeping Supplies Post Op????

I am undecided about which of these sleeping aids may be best for me. I'm getting liposculpture & BBL & I am a stomach sleeper. So after reading up on the holo Lilo inflatable for pregnant women- you have the choice of inflating or deflating the head & foot section. It works for sleeping, swimming & suntanning. I could actually take that w/ me to the DR. Versus the Wedge block which I can cut the center out for my buttocks & use it for the bed once I get home, bc that will be a hassle to travel with. The holo LILO is a little more than the wedge. In have attached pic's for those who are interested. Hummmmm decisions decision- I will update once I decide. Smooches????
Lol well yes you could afterwards but I'm thinking about using it to sleep on directly after getting my lipo & BBL- i dont want to kill my fat cells which can happen if you sleep/ sit directly on the booty too much before allowing the cells the ability to rejuvenate & connect. It's a means for me to sleep comfortably on my back if my stomach is too sore to sleep on. Read my 2nd post about it I just posted a few mins ago-that will clear it up for ya. Good luck on your transformation Hun!
Yes Hun I am super excited! I used to take diet pills called Bee pollen( herbal blend) & have tried other appetite suppressants which have worked but I would end up picking back up the weight too soon bc some pills only push out water weight which comes back the next day lol. The reason I love the wraps bc it's not eliminating water weight it's actually detoxing the Fat for longer results w/ out exercising at all. I still eat what I like & drink what I like as well. But if they worked for you that's awesome hun as long as we get it off. I was only trying to drop 10lbs which I did so Duran told me don't drop anymore after she saw my pic's after wrapping. And I don't like taking pills either lol
oh ok .. I love the results u get after the wrap .. but unno I always thought it was fake.. if I can find 1 in my city I will most def. try it out. by the way how long does the results last when you wrap

The Importance of getting Lymphatic Drainage massages after Lipo.

After reading up on the benefits & time frame for how long to get the LDM. Experts state that a sufficient minimum time, up to two months post op is an imperative time to getting the LDM. So ladies start searching in your areas for someone that does LDM because its totally different then a normal body massage & this is imperative to eliminate swelling, fluid, knots & give the appearance of smoother abs & back. Also I read getting one the day before SX helps your recovery process.

*****All that are going to the DR get as many as you can while there because in the states they are much more pricey. Good Luck! Smooches Xoxo
Yes they really do work you lose inches after wearing it for 45 min & stays off up to 6 months to a year. just depends on your eating habits. If you are near the DMV or NC area PM me bc I know some folks or can get you the link to order some...

Happy Thanksgiving RS Diva's

I'm wishing everyone a very blessed Thanksgiving. I pray that you all are enjoying happy times with Family Today.
Try not to over eat, eat in small portions a couple times today & you won't be too stuffed & miserable feeling later. Smooches everyone & blessings!!
Where did you get the fat fighters pills and body wrap from?
Hi Hun ingot them online PM me ur email address so I can send you the link.
Thank u, will do

Duran's List of Prescriptions needed Post Op.

I decided to get most if my prescriptions filled here in the US instead if paying for them in the DR. Attached is a list that my PCP filled for me everything besides the vitamins & heparin shots. Hope this helps ladies!
Good luck Xoxo
Can someone please tell me how you got in touch with Dr. Duran I love her work & I would like to get a BBL/ Lipo & TT
Hi Hun Duran's contact info & how to reach her is posted above in my review, please read it. Good luck!
Hi Hun my date is set for May 13th congrats

60 Days pre-op before becoming a Duran Doll

So I finally received my blood work results and everything was in normal limits & my Hemo Level was 12.4 Yayyy!!! I was very excited so I assume the blood builders are working bc I am Anemic. So I will continue to take them until they're gone to ensure that my hemo level stays up. So my PCP gave me an order for lab work to do again 30 days pre-op ( Duran like to know your levels 30 day prior to your sx date per her email) to ensure you are in good health.

On another note i was sharing with a new RS sister that it is important to read, research & take notes from all of the women up here on RS sharing their stories, posting pictures of themselves & suggesting products to aid us in our Journey. It has helped me tremendously & i have shared some things from other's & I'm sure it's going to help ladies in the future. So I want to Thank all the ladies especially my fellow Duran Dolls that I have PM & you have Responded back as well as those that give details, great review info & pictures & products to help me thru my Journey. I've read so many that I can't remember everyone page unless we communicate more frequently & y'all know whom you are- I Love ya for all of your help,encouragement, suggestions & advice. I pray for everyone's speedy Recovery & wonderful new curves. Xoxoxo?
You are so pretty!!! And have a great shape already!! Duran is going to hook you up!!! Good luck!!
Awe thank u shuga!!! I sure hope she will & thank you Hun.
Yay you got that hemo level right!!!!!!!! I can't wait to see your results honey!!!

Duran has a New English Speaking Consultant

To all of my researching Dolls if you dint know where to start in pkanning your sx & trip; if you'll are having a difficult time contacting Duran & don't speak Spanish I just found out she has a new Counsultant & her page name is Zee 299. I will attach her contact number for you so you can get your journey started. I'm sure there maybe a fee but I'm not 100% sure how much. Also the other Successful consultant is Jazmine with at Bellavita Consultants & I know from one if my SX buddies that has used her & was able to get her quote approval, date & RH set up successfully, yes there is a fee also. I hope this help my RS sisters out on your journey back to Sexy! Smooches xoxo

Ladies make sure you take your antibiotic's Post-Op!!

Ladies I want to Thank RS sis NJEXCITEDDD for sharing this article with us. It's imperative that we take our antibiotics & listen to our bodies during recovery. If something doesn't feel right then definitely consult your Primary physician or head to the ER. I just wanted to share this as a precautionary effort while we're Recovering.

Read the article & be aware of the signs & symptoms.

**This is not stating it from any particular doctor in the DR, but I did Share it with Duran via an email to her just in case she gets bomb barded with questions.

Thanks to my GYN Doctor whose a surgeon also- after having my annual visit with him & discussing that I was going to have SX in the DR; and after explaining the process he & my nurse were impressed, so you know they want me to come back after I come back so they can see my new curves. He also suggested that i take a round of antibiotics before going to the DR to ensure there is no lingering
undetected Bacteria & because I'm going out of the country. So I thank him for looking out for me. So once I'm back home & feel up to it I have to pay both my primary & GYN doctor a visit. My primary doc stated she wanted blood work when I return anyway to ensure my levels are back to normal post-op. And since this article has surfaced I think it's a very good idea to see your primary for bloodwork post-op to ensure no bacteria is surfacing. Good luck Diva's make sure we stay healthy!!
You are scheduled 1 day before me however I'm going to Dr Fisher in Miami good luck you are very pretty by the way!
Awe thank you Hun!! And I'm wishing you a successful SX & easy recovery as well- we about to be fabulous honey!!! Lol
Hey love thanks for the shout out, it's much appreciated :) I read that ur doc said to take a round of antibiotics before going to D.R. , did he mention the name of any ? Do u think amoxicillin would be good?

48 Days until I become Duran's Doll?

So I have finally finished gathering my Supplies & packing them up ( I'm sweating Woo) lol. I purchased everything on my list that I posted earlier in my review. My final thing to do is pay my deposit for where me & hubby will be staying. Which I'm leaning towards Dominga's since she has a private one bedroom suit w/ its own bathroom & lounge area on the 3rd floor of her house. I know some people think it's not appropriate post operatively but actually walking is encouraged after SX & I'm not getting a TT only lipo & BBL. So that works for me because I rather be mobile then laying on my new booty all day. I only plan to stay a week in the DR arriving on Sunday, a day before procedure & leaving the next Sunday. I am so glad that hubby will be with me bc he's truely great at taking care of Me. The only thing I haven't gotten is the Ensures which i can get in the DR if I can't fit them in my luggage.

Also after reading CallMeDushi latest update about the Calendula Tea that was given to her at the RH which has aided in her having minimal swelling post-op. I've decided to order it now & will start drinking it the week before SX & post-op in the DR. So Thank you for sharing this info CallMeDushi bc I was going to wait & purchase while in DR.

I have to be back to work after a week ( new Job), which I will have my boppy to sit on, but I will be able walk around as well to not put too much pressure on my booty. So glad that I'm in the office w/ only 1 other person & a partition separates us.

So I'm just praying that god cover's me & all the dolls having SX. I definitely trust Duran with my body & just preparing myself & hubby for my recovery.

Well Dolls until next time be easy & have a Wonderful Holiday, Christmas, Kwanza etc. Smooches!!!
Thanks for the update *my shadowself* OMG your like so ready to Roll to DR your suite case is all packed & you did good with all your supplies.. The ensure shakes you can always get in DR should be cheaper in the super market so just get them the same day you arrive to avoid xtra weight in luggage & having to pay more cause you went over a few lbs. OMG sis I can't believe how fast time is flying by I think I'm having an orgasm for you from so much excitement. I mean I'm really so excited for you cause time for your sx is close by. Thanks to you & CallMeDushi those teas sound like a lifesaver I will deft be looking into it.. xxx kisses xxx
Lmbo u r funny sis- but yes Hun I think I'm gonna have one myself bc the ass watching is becoming to natural to me lol it's the obsession of wondering how I be post op. thanks for showing me love!! Smooches
Anytime babe.. yes seems a lot of sisters be popping one too lol eyes B wondering on too many damn po juicy asses on here lmfao

?42 days to go to become the next Duran Doll?

Okay ladies hopefully this helps those that dont like to read our reviews. So here is Duran's contact info once again:
Dra. Agustina Hilario Duran
The International Center of Advanced Plastic Surgery (CIPLA)
137 Avenida Pedro Henriquez Urena, 2nd. Floor Suite 212, Sector La Esperilla, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
(xxx)xxx-xxxx | Cell: xxx) xxx-xxxx |Office xxx)xxx-xxxx ext. 212
If you don't speak Spanish then ask for Elizabeth her assistant that does speak English. This is my last time posting her info.

So my final item came in the mail- the Calendula Flower Tea, which is used by one of the RH to aid in a speedy recovery. Picture is attached for your view & I purchased it from www.buddhateas.com for $5.00/ box. So I will start drinking that a week before I leave along with my pre-op vitamins from mmh. So ya'll I am soooo ready it's just a count down now!!!
So I was just joking with another RS sis about how bad my "ass watching" has become since I've been on my journey. I'm starting to feel like the closer I'm getting to my date the worst off I get & have to catch myself booty watching Lmbo! Well ladies a little laugh for the night wishing all a blessed Merry Christmas & all having SX this week a successful one. Smooches xoxo

Wishing all the lovely ladies of RS a Happy New Years & I pray for many blessings & awesome transformations of new bodies to all you Diva's Dolls. Let get back healthy & sexy at the same damn time!!!
One love & one Life PEACE
**i have 32 more days yall*
Your time is winding down. I'm so jealous. Wish I was going with you but good luck boo! Can't wait to see results!
I cant wait to see your results, I wanted to be a Yily doll but after seeing Durans work I am all for her.
Yes I'm so ready!!! And Duran is awesome to me so I wish you luck whichever doctor you decide to go with..

30 more days until Duran blesses my body!

OH MY GOD!!!! Ladies I am officially ready!! All supplies are packed away, RH deposit was finally made I will be staying at Dominga's RH. I chose her place because she has private rooms w/ it's own bathrooms so that hubby & I will still have some privacy. I am only staying for one full week since I'm only getting lipo & BBL. I pray that all goes well w/ no complications. I have also registered with the Embassy just in case of emergencies while I'm traveling abroad.
I have notified Duran via email with a copy of my lab results since she likes to see those 30 days before your SX and also sent her my flight information. She advised me to make sure I'm taking iron, b12 & frolic acid. So I have started back taking my blood builders along with my women's multiviramina for extra iron, b12 & folic acid. And plan in eating an orange or Drink OJ everyday & increase my green veggies ( spinach, broccoli, cabbage are all my favorites and get my liver, onions, rice & gravy on lol. I also have my pre-op vitamins which i will start to take 2 weeks before (1pkg a day) my sx since they will ensure I'm getting what I need( daily nutrients) & aid in my recovery.

Well Dolls & Diva's I think its about all for now. I pray for all those ladies that are about to go under for their procedures- God bless!!

Smooches XOXO
Hey best luck to you with Ms.Duran hope your expectations are met and that all goes well with your surgery!!
Hello, I was wondering if you needed a surgery buddy. I'm not sure what day you're going but my surgery date is Feb 4. Let me know if your interested.

20 More Days until I hand my body over to Duran!!

Y'all I am so excited- just a ball of nerves ( ahhhhh- screaming) lol. So I can feel that I've picked up a few pounds since the holidays & I have not been wrapping(ugh) been so tired, but I know Duran is gonna work it out.

So I've been taking my vitamins & blood builders religiously everyday. Eating my Liver, spinach ( green veggies) nuts, drinking my OJ & just keeping a positive mindframe.
What's so funny is that my hubby be texting me saying "20 more days boo" I'm excited that he's just as excited as me lol- the love & encouragement just make my spirit Calm. I thank God for sending him to me!
Well enuff of the lovey dovey talk y'all here is a few more pre-op pics of my flat booty that I can't wait for Duran to bless lol.
Praying for all those that are going down, i pray that all goes well & for a smooth recovery.
Smooches xoxox
I'm excited for you! You seem to have it all figured out. Good for you. :") I'll be behind my desk waiting to hear from ya. :) Angels on your pillow.
Alright my dear it is time.. Praying for traveling grace my dear.. and a speedy recovery. Now go get bootfied!!!!!!!

Making sure my Hemo level is up for Feb 3 SX..

So I stopped by my Besties job which is at a doctors office and before I left I had her check my hemo level & yea baby 12.9 it was.. Duran here I come baby!!! Lol so the blood builders & vitamin are working out & in have been eating my iron rich foods to. I'm on my way ladies!! Smooches xoxo
Here to show mad love to my doppleganger. So excited for you & happy to see that you got butterflies in your tummy (: it so nice to have such a supporting partner that gets so involved in your dreams, yes God is good. You look good seems you lost weight to me.. xxx your in my prayers my shadowself! smooches!
yay for you hemo level!
Awe thank you my Doppleganger smooches!! I don't feel like I've lost any weight lol love u & appreciate the prayers..

14 days to go before Duran lays hands on me!!

Y'all I am so excited my time is approaching, i will start my pre-op vitamins tomorrow to ensure my body needs what's necessary internally to heal. I haven't gotten nervous yet but I can't say that i won't. I'm more concerned with seeing my hubby & making sure he's home from deployment in time. Thank god he'll be home next week.

On another note I read one of my fellow Duran dolls profiles that just recently had SX ( lipo sculpture & BBL) &she mentioned that she didn't have a drain bc Duran didn't give her one. Yes she looked amazing too.. She mentioned that Duran is starting to re-evaluate the use of the drains bc I supposed she is determining that they drains can increase the risk of infection later. So the RS sis ( i forgot ger page name) states that she drained a lot thru her incision sites during her massages & urinated it out as well. So ladies don't be alarmed if you don't get a drain after having lipo ( not a TT) bc I'm sure she will still insert the drains for that procedure,i am actually hoping that I don't need a drain & that I drain well enough to not need it bc I see those drains are a nusence.
Well diva's that's about all I have right now. I pray for all of my sisters that are having SX & I pray for their recovery. Smooches XoXo

Happy MLK day -Beware Hoax email from Duran titled "Need Help"

So this morning I believe everybody in Duran's contacts & those that have probably emailed her for a quote has received this message. I will post a screen shot of the email but ladies this is is from a hacker that has gotten into her email. The reason I know because this same thing happened to my cousin, we all receive this email saying she needed help & to send money to another country. So I called her phone to find out that she was fine & at home but that a hacker jacked her email contacts trying to get money sent. So ladies please know that this is just a hoax/ scam way for some creep to get some money from you. I just wanted to put it out there before folks start trying to blow her up about it.

Alright ladies that is all for now I just wanted to Alert everyone & wish everyone a blessed Martin Luther King Jr Day. We must continue to live his dream to Peace & Equality!
Blessing to all Xoxo
hey honey we off that surfboard this week lol
Yes I agree with you Dra. Baez has like ghost beauties they post a lil then after stop I'm going to her in May and I vow to post every single min of it lol good luck with Duran she was my first choice.
Your time is coming soon girl


Ladiesssssss I can't believe that I only have 1 more week to go, next Monday February 3 its going down. I will hand my body over to Dra. Duran & let her work her magic hands on sculpting me back to the sexy chic I use to be. I am super excited my travel buddy will arrive 2 day before me so once I get there I will check in on her.

Not much new going on, I've just been maintaining my eating habits of increasing my iron rich foods, I have one more week to take my pre-op vitamins and I have still been taking my blood builders along with them too.

Oh I have gained weight since I started my journey 6 months ago (blame it on the holidays) lol so I am toggling between 165 - 170lbs ughhh oh well it is what it is at this point, I just want Duran to get the fat off of my back & stomach & inject what she can to fill in my buttocks & round it out with a little projection. so hopefully this 10lbs I've gained will give her enough to work with.

Well Ladies I send prayers up to all of those that are preparing for Sx tomorrow or any day this week, blessing and I'll see y'all on the sexier side :)
Smooches XOXO
Hello myshadowself I have buterflies in my tummy for you lol wow you packed and ready to go? but ofc you are (: hope the snow stopped on your end so your flight isn't delayed or anything...remember I told you send the snow my way well day after it snowed here but only for like a few lol....

So excited for you. Praying a speedy recovery.

2 more days until Duran manes me over

Ladies I'm so excited & ready to go. I only have to go grab me some snacks & some ensures to pack up. I got my hemo checked yesterday & i was 12.7 so lastnight I ate some beef & will eat some again tonight or tomorrow before arriving in the DR to ensure my levels are high enough. Well I wanna thank you all for the prayers & blessings & will continue to update a long as I can get wifi.
Oh ladies when traveling make sure you you have the address, phone# or your printed Itinerary ( i booked on airbnb) to the RH & CIPLA handy bc my buddy who had SX yesterday gave me heads up bc when you fill out paperwork to enter the country you must account for where you're going & staying at for your length of stay. Also have $10 cash for the visitor card also. Then you're good to go.
Good luck to those that are having procedures done this weekend & next week I pray for a smooth recovery. Blessings & will update once I arrive!!
Good luck lil lady..how did you check your hemo?
Thanks Hun & I went to my doctors office & they checked it for me..
Good luck doll.

On my way to the DR for SX with Duran

Ladies!!!!!! I have made it to the airport early I didn't want to to risk having to face delays at the counter or whatever could go wrong. So I have an hour & half before my flight takes off.
Y'all know I'm tired right- hubby & I got about 2 hours of sleep, so I'm definitely gonna be resting on this flight & my connecting flight. I have my itinerary with me that I was sent from Dominga thru airbnb. You MUST have the addresses & phone numbers to where you will be staying at once you arrive. Also she sent me a message letting me know that her & her sister Virginia will be there to meet me & hubby at the airport.

Well dolls I will update y'all once I land in the DR.
Smooches xoxo
Save travel
Thanks & we made it!
where can I order the wraps from??? oh and good luck on your surgery : )

SX day with the infamous Duran

I want to Thank everyone for all the prayers & blessings. I had a very long day traveling yesterday my connecting flight was delayed due to Foggy weather in Atlanta so they diverted the plane to Alabama which in turn cause me & hubby to miss our flight to Santo Dominga ( Errrr), so you know in was extremely upset about tht bc the next flight out ha me going all the way to NY to come back to the DR which we didn't get into the DR airport until almost midnight. So needless to say I missed getting my labs done & was extremely tired!
Ladies when you arrive at the airport you will have to know your RH address because you will need to fill out 2 documents for citizen form ( only the blue form & the larger white form) pay your $10 citizen card & be on your way to collect your baggage.

So I had emailed Dominga to let her know my flight got delayed & once I arrived I called her to let her know we made it in a little earlier & she came to get us.

Dominga's RH
Ladies the warm air was so nice once I walked out of the airport I was like yes no more East coast cold ( snow) weather. Arrived to the RH in 15 minutes & the house looks exactly like the pictures on airbnb ( John's Room). The house was clean & bathrooms clean w/ complementary soap & deodorants the only problem was the fact that the water when we showered was COLD as heck ( brrrr), it was late & hubby & I just thugged it out & took cold showers but I will be speaking to her about this morning. It's now 6am ( DR is 1 hour ahead of EST). And I am dressed waiting for the other 2 ladies to come down so that we can head to the hospital. So I take it I'll be last probably since I haven't gotten labs yet. ( my ass gonna be starving later lol). But the rooms have Cable TV, wifi, it's own small refrigerator, decent space.

Well loves I'm on my way to CIPLA & will try to update once I do labs..

Hey girl! Are you ok? I know you said on here you would post all the way through after sx. Hope you're ok!
Good luck with everything.. you are going to look fab!!

PRETTY HURTS- Duran Doll pic's at 2 days PO

Here y'all go ladies. I still have alot of inflammation but you can see Duran's magic she worked on me.. I had lipo of abdomen & back & BBL. she wanted to do a TT bc I had a hernia & needed muscle repair but I declined due to maybe having a baby later w/ hubby. So she did the best to make it flat as possible. Which I'm satisfied & she explained it won't be super flat& I'm ok w/ that.
I love my results thus far and can't wait until all the swelling has subsided.
I don't know what my measurements were but i was 167 lbs hemo was 12.3 before SX & everything was clear. I did drop to 6.3 after SX & had to get a blood transfusion ( 2 bags). She put in 1350 cc in each cheek she said she couldn't remember how much in my hips she added. So I hope this helps you all for now. I have so much more to tell. Just have a little patience with me.

Thanks again for all the Love, prayers & support it's meant so much to me.
Glad you are feeling better, you had us scared. Allah is great!!
I am so happy for you. You are looking good. Happy healing!
Thanks love!

Duran Doll 11 days PO

Ok ladies i feel up to start sharing my day of SX update. So here it goes!

Feb 3rd 6:30 a hubby & I was up dressed & ready to head to the hospital. I had packed 1 t-shirt, pain med's, bottle water, my antibiotics that I had got filled here in the states, an orange, alcohol wipes, baby wipes, my Pee EZ, boppy, blanket, pads & the bed chux.
Now we arrived at Duran's office about 7am in which there were other ladies that arrived for F/u visits. Ladies please understand that no one has there SX at 7, 8 or 9am no ma'am. This is how it works- First Duran see all of her Post-op patients first now in between she will see you & make you up. Then you are sent downstairs to the Laboratory for your bloodwork & chest X-ray. Then once you get the results from that them you go to see the cardiologist & he reviews the X-rays & ur lab results & then give u the EKG. All of this takes about 1-2 hours. Then you have to be cleared thru the intake nurse & put thru registration. Once you are cleared you go back to Duran's office & Elizabeth or her other assistant then escort you upstairs to the 4th floor where you are admitted into your private room ( some have double beds for 2 patients) but in was in a room by myself.
So now it's about 10am & the nurse comes to help you get in your embolism stockings & gown then the waiting begins. Duran only does 4 patients a day & it was only 3 of us that day in which I went 2nd. So I relaxed as Rested as hubby watched TV ( btw is $20) to get the remote control which you will get back once you're leaving CIPLA. Yes ladies CIPLA was clean, nurses used new gloves every time they entered my room & were very nice & attentive. Also Please ladies know some command words in Spanish bc the language barrier is so REAL!! Or use ur translation App. There are some of the nurses that speaks very good English so it just
depends whose on duty.
Ok at 2:30 they told me to take my blue pill & honestly y'all I don't even remember seeing the anesthesiologist - I was OUT! When I woke up around 8pm to see hubby's face smiling at me I said Thank you Jesus & asked did she do the TT lol ( my ass didn't want that- even tho I had told her to gonna head & do it.). Hubby was like i dont know Bae. I was covered up, cold & wanted water. I took my own pain med's bc I didn't know how long they would take to give me more thru IV. So I was hungry as hell & hubby tried to feed me some food he has gotten from around the corner at the bodega. I had about 2 bites & some of my ensure & was right back knocked out. So morning rolls around & i need blood transfusion bc my hemo level had dropped to 6.3 & they want to feed me - now here is where i start feeling nausea & dizzy. They bring me some fruit & i try to eat it but it doesn't stay down. I vomit all over the floor & a little on myself. A little while after they came to put me in my faja- that was very exhausting OH MY GOD- that was the most tortuous process ever, the nurse washed me off w/ wipes & then got that faja on me. It was so tight I had difficulty breathing so they put me on an Oxygen tank & kept pushing fluids thru IV bc I started spiking a fever. So i rest for a few hours as they monitor me & push fluids, vitamins & antibiotics thru my IV's.
so they finally released me late that night around 11p. Virginia from Dominga's RH was their to run get my other med's that Duran prescribed & some other supplies that i could use like larger chux ( bed liners), etc.

Now the ride to the RH wasn't too bad I just couldn't wait to lay my ass down. And yes ladies you will be laying on your back majority of the time unless you can sleep on your stomach ( which I did as well). So over the next couple days I endured spiked fever thruout the days & nights, not able to hold down food or fluids down & diarrhea!!! I was going thru y'all & struggling to get comfortable. So we called Duran & she stated for me to get some acetaminophen ( Tylenol) & Gatorade. So hubby went with Dominga to the pharmacy to get those items along w/ some adult diapers ( lol). Yessss y'all ya girl couldn't hold her bladder & every damn thing i drank & ate came straight thru so hubby say fuck that you wearing the damn diapers lmao. When i say we had to remove that damn faja to wash it & let it air dry -I was truly no more good ( helpless)!

So Friday came & it was my f/u appt went to see Duran & she removed my drain tube ( which only her cutting the stitch hurt) & she was concerned bc i hadn't been able to take my med's & hold it down. So she had blood work done to check my levels & requested a urine & stool sample from me. So my levels were a little low & my WBC was elevated. However Duran stated it wasn't to hight that at that point I didn't need to be admitted. So went back to RH & went to get some rest & woke up w/ high fever of 102.7 which you have to convert to Celsius for Duran. I still couldn't eat & had vomited again. So back to CIPLA I go it was about 5:30p & Duran was probably headed tondo her last patient but she got me checked in before she went to SX. The gave me fluids, antibiotics iron & vitamins via IV. Duran came by after her last SX to check on me we talked about my med's in which order to take them bc I wasn't clear & she states that maybe the difference in water & foods from the US was throwing my body into a culture shock ( adjustment) as well. She told me to please take care of myself & try to eat & take med's so that I'll feel better. She rubbed me on my legs ( told me stay off my sides) & said goodnight.
So around midnight I got back to the RH & hubby & I went to bed.
Saturday & Sunday I recovered much better- got 2 massages ( were crucial) I was able to eat baby portions & drink water etc but the diarrhea stayed. So I had hubby go get me some anti-diarrhea med's from Pharmacy, a 7Up & soup. Earlier my RH buddies had went out & bought me some electrolyte juice back to help me out ( Rosie & Jackie) was very concerned & helpful to me too.

Monday was my final f/u appt Duran checked my body took pictures & asked if she could post & I said yes. She said i looked much better & she hoped unfelt much better. That's when she told me she put 1350 cc's in each cheek & that she loved my body frame & was satisfied with how my back, butt & stomach looked. She asked me if I had any questions & drew some fluid off of my stomach w/ a needle. She gave me my note for the airline, she hugged me & told me to promise to take care of myself & send her pictures. I agreed she hugged me & we took a pic & she gave me my 2nd stage faja that they couldn't get in me bc in was still to swollen in my stomach area & she said it Wouldn't be comfortable for my flight. She said wait a week & then put it on once I got back home & some inflammation has gone down..

Ok that's about it for now ladies here are some random pic & I will talk about them massages next time.
Check your inbox doll~mysexyback35
Awesome! You look amazing even with swelling girl. You already had a donk but Duran just amplified it!!! God bless.
Thank u so much Hun & blessings to you too..

13 days PO- Duran Doll

So ladies today was my 1 LDM ( massage) from a spa in the US. The massuese in the DR advised me that I needed a total of 10 massages. I received 2 before i left the DR which i should have gotten more but Dominga for some reason since her prices includes massage she takes her time getting them for you- so unless you're staying for 2 weeks don't count on getting the 6 she supposed to get for you that's included in your stay. I will be doing a review on my stay with Doningas a little later. Now from my understanding you can start massages as early as 3 days PO & since I was so sick off & on I was asking when I could get my 1st massage, being that another young lady that was staying at the RH ( Yily doll) had SX a few days prior, which by the way looked good as well, had started to get her massages. She had expressed that she had only gotten 2 & was paying for the massuese to come back the next day for a 3rd massage & she herself was paying for ( wtf)!!! Ladies let me explain that with Dominga's RH package 6 massages are supposed to be included with your stay. So i was very confused why she was paying for her 3rd massage. Moving on- I didn't get my 1st massage until i was 5 days PO now ladies understand at this time my drain had been removed by Duran on day 4 PO. Duran had asked at my f/u appt had I started massages yet bc she stated that I had fluid that needed to be pushed out ( not to mention she had drawn fluid from my lower stomach area as well). So moving on ladies my first massage was horrible because I had fluid build up & guess what my incisions had CLOSED. That girl pushed & pulled that fluid to come out that I started crying out so loud that they had to call Duran. Hubby was holding tryig to consol me while the massuese rubbed on me lightly..... yall I was angry, pissed, upset & cursing bc I kept asking since day 3 PO when could i get my fucking massage bc ladies our bodies start healing quickly & you can feel burning inside from that fluid building up. So the massuese that works at CIPLA ended up picking at my incision until it opened & she got the fluid to come out. She worked on me for about 30 min them gave me a break & went to massage one of the other Duran dolls that dates at the RH too. After she finished her she came back to me & finished pushing fluid out & at this point they had me standing up leaning on the wall bc the pain was so bad I couldn't lay down. Needless to say I got dizzy so they laid me down & a few minutes later i went into a diarhea frenzy ( OH MY GOD) my body couldn't take anymore. So the next day I got my 2nd massage & it was much better, afterwards ladies your body feels relief & your mobility is better.
So my massage today from the Health spa was totally different- she educated me on what the massages do & how it work internally for healing. She did light strokes & soften up some of the knots. She wanted to make sure the nodes weren't clogged or compromised. She explained that the technique is used to move the fluid thru the bloodstream & it will eliminate over time. Because now all incisions are closed up. So I will resume the lymphatic massages bc want to be healthy inside & not just look good from the outside. Well ladies until next time. Smooches xoxo
i just read your full update and i am impressed with results girl. you look hella fabulous, Funny thing is i went to dr on vacation last year no surgery and i got hit with montezuma revenge and i didn't event drink the water so I'm think maybe it was from an ice cube or when i took a shower the water hit my lip. i dunno but all i know is now I'm gonna take come precautions when i go out there. Im sorry you had some difficulties but can you say worth it cause you look banging mama, Good luck healing.
Let me slap that ass lol j/k but it looks great :)
U look awesome and it looks natural

Special Thanks during my recovery.

When I wrote my initial thank you to everyone for my prayers & support I forgot to point out a few sisters that has truly been like Real Sisters to me from a distant during my journey!!

Victoria313- ladies this is my big sister from afar bc she isn't in the US. When I say she made calls for me bc her Spanish is muy bien & she set up prayer blogs on her page for me. I can't be more appreciative to have such a wonderful sister. Y'all she whatsapp me the entire time & still do everyday to make sure i was okay, & to give me her big sister rules bc she has had PS in the past so her feedback was on point. So thank you my Doppleganger I love you so much Victoria313.

Next my girl jaysmile30- she started out as my SX buddy bc decided to go to Vanity fair ( DR. Fisher) to get her makeover. She kept me updated on things since she had SX before i did. She kept texting & praying for my recovery as well & we still share recovery experiences as we are recovering together. Thanks boo for keeping me uplifted.

This next Sister mylife313- she started out on RS searching for her PS & ended up running across my page. We inboxed each other & ended up exchanging numbers. We became close & communicated everyday. She ended up having SX a few days before me & she was my last minute guide, advising me what was needed immediately post op & wanted to make sure i had Everything since she had arrived in DR before me. Ladies let me tell you how helpful she was to me even tough we were in diff RH. This lil firecracker ( my nickname for her) turns into my big sis & I'm older than her lol. She was calling & texting to make sure i was alright, when I went thru my fevers & stuff at the RH she was on the phone making me call Duran ( bc she was rooming w/ some Duran dolls at her RH too that was telling her to tell me to call Duran). This firecracker was ready to have daisy come get me & my stuff from Dominga's RH to be over there w/ her at Daisy's bc the care wasn't being attended to like I needed it to be. But I just decided to stay bc I didn't want any conflict between RH owners. So overall Mylife313 was on it & ensuring that I was alright the entire time until she left the DR. I love you Mylife313 bc you held me up to God & i appreciate your support even tho we were apart.

Lastly my girl PSnewbieDC- she stayed at the RH with me & we had communicated months prior to our SX since they were a day apart. Such a wonderful spirit & personality. She & her SX buddy helped me out alot as well- one could speak fluent Spanish & PSnewbieDC could understand Spanish so they were my saviors lol. They constantly checked on me, made sure I ate food & would motivate me to get up & walk with them around the RH. We flew back home together ( she left early) bc we both were not satisfied totally w/ our care at Dominga's - so we got outta there & back home safely. Thanks for helping me thru the airport eventho I was in a wheelchair ( feet were too swollen to walk) and you walked ( a trooper) to the gates, helping carry my purse w/ your own carry on items. Thank you honey!!

Just saying thank you to these special Sisters- I can't thank you'll enough. Smooches & I love you all!
Lmbo GIRLLL you got the slapable bootay lol.. I just wrote a thank u to u in my review..thank you!


*My sis page is Mynewlife313 not mylife313.
U look great .....
Hey luv! Just chkn n on ya! How r u?
Hey luv! I'm recovering well, most of the swelling has gone down & everything is really tight/hard( sensitive to touch) & starting to itch now. But still have a ways to go, I'm just taking it easy. Thanks for checking in on me..


Ladies I am coming along slowly but surely with recovery. All of the lipo areas ( underneath my arm pits, stomach, back) is all very tight ( feels like it's all pulling together) and its hard/ firm to the touch. I still have sensitive areas on my stomach & back to the touch & the zapping of my nerves regenerating is constant ( all day long) it will stop you in your tracks like a cramp. My hips & booty has softened up & it doesn't hurt anymore to sit down. I finally can sit on the toilet w/ out my left butt cheek killing me. Ladies the P-EZ has been my best friend. Everywhere I go it goes with me especially while wearing the garment- easy access while out & about. Pretty much all of the visual swelling has gone down, I'm sure my body may be holding a little fluid around my abdominal area but my massage will take care of that. I will have my 4th LDM ( massage) tomorrow & plan to get a total of 10 massages by end if 2 months PO. So the itching phase has kicked in & it's random times- my booty & lower back & stomach itch the most & I would have hubby rub lotion on me totally forgot that I had the Benadryl itch gel (lol). So I will start using that to see if it helps. My f/u appt is tomorrow with my PCP & I'll update y'all once she checks me out to make sure my levels are Normal. Well here are a couple pics for ya & I'll update after my massage.
Smooches xoxo
God bless you mama ... I'm glad the hardest part is done , the healing process is at times overwhelming ... U look greatttt
Thank you Hun & yesss so glad the toughest part is past now. Blessings to you too Hun!
@mysexyback35 I am not scheduled with duran I am scheduled with dimaro. They gave me preop instructions but it's not a lot of information that is going to prepare me post op. First I am scheduled for sx on a friday which means I won't get my first massage until Monday so will that be a problem? His cost include 20 therapy sessions which are the carboxy and ultrasound and massages so I want to know should I see if I can find a massuse for the weekend? Also I hear rs talk about taking their faja off right away to be washed while showering so what are u wearing while your faja is washing I know they say you should wear your faja for 6months to get the best results but I'm just wondering since u only get one faja while its washing what are people wearing? Or are they not wearing anything at all? Can you just give me your own postop instructions since you've already experienced this? One last question will I have to get these therapy sessions for a lifetime? Okay, just one last thing did you use fmla for this and if so do you need a diagnosis to use fmla or can you just have a script saying you will be out under the care of the Dr due to surgery?

Duran Doll 21 days PO

Hi Diva's!!! I just want to give a small update to you all. At my appointment I complained of headaches everyday feeling like throbbing coming thru the top of my head. So my lab results from my doctors appointment last week came back & she found that my blood sugar levels were too low & that my anemia has returned ( thats what the headaches were from). So what that means for me is i have to pack on high protein foods, increase my vitamin C, & resume my liquid iron ( which i still have 1 box left that I had gotten filled from duran prescriptions while in the DR. She stated no infection & my WBC level was normal ( Yayyy)!!! So thank god for my health being okay besides the couple things that I can correct w/ out medicine. I have also been trying to push more fluids specifically water bc I was dehydrated still ( per my urinalysis). Also the masseuse advised me to drink more water to aid in my body healing & eliminating the fluid.

I also had my measurements taken & they are 35-29-44, so I found my corset from back in the Body Magic days & put it on- on the packaging it states it helps to eliminate flaccidity following liposuction & eliminates excess fluid. So this was right on time since I Still cannot fit into that damn phase 2 faja that now I'm pissed I bought from Duran bc I could have gotten another type of garment that would fit. I don't know if it ever will fit bc it's so damn tight lol. ( May have to sell it - it size Large Oh well I'll keep wearing my spanx & this corset to get my waste smaller before summer. Here are a few pics of me in the corset & I love my bootay it has started to settle nicely the pictures don't really do it any justice. But I think the fluffing gods has started visiting me early bc my booty actually jiggles a little & is much softer. Well that's all until next time.
Enjoy & blessings diva's!!
You look FANTASTIC!!! She did a beautiful job!
Happy healthy healing girly u look great :)
Thanks Hun I appreciate it!!

30 Days PO Duran Doll

I am Thanking God that I made it to 30 PO. I haven't experienced any problems just off and on Throbbing and of course the sharp pains (nerves) on my whole torso. That is the area that I be glad when its totally healed because my back, sides & stomach is still sensitive to touch. I haven't lost any volume and love the way my silhouette looks in my clothes. I have no complaints at all because I asked Duran for a Natural looking butt and that is what I have- I didn't want to look like I had work done, just want to look like I've worked out and toned up lol...
My appetite has seem to get back to normal, not eating large portions but a little more than a kids portion (lol). I have a follow up appointment this week with my PCP to recheck my blood levels and make sure that my blood sugar levels are back to normal.
So since I still cant get into my darn stage 2 faja I am just going to use my corset and I decided to buy the butt-out panty from off of E-bay so that my booty don't drop too much, this will help it stay lifted.
I will attach some 30 day pics, until next review I wish everyone safe travels and speedy recoveries.


Forgot the 30 days PO pics Duran Doll

Oh yea I stepped out to attend a family celebration w/ hubby & oh my god the Attention I got was flattering- I loved it. Y'all I even got on the dance floor to dance, was a lil tight while dancing around my back & stomach but I still looked cute winding my small waist- heyyyyy! Lol The picture doesn't do it any justice, at first I was a little nervous but once I took my trench mink coat off I felt like a celebrity bc everybody was giving me eyes.
Also I attached a pic of the panty girdle that I bought.
Glad you made it through the tough times, you look absolutely fabulous! Happy healing. :)
thanks hun yea it was a rough recovery & i still have up & down days but im very happy w/ my results. I will do my monthly review tomorrow. Good luck to you as well.
I can't wait to read it! :)

60 days PO 2014 Duran Doll

Hi ladies & gents its been officially 60 days since my sx ( Lipo & BBL) with Dr. Duran. I am still very much satisfied with my results & im still far from total recovery.

Ladies please understand that post operatively we may look & almost feel good but internally its a roller coaster. Some days i feel great & others i feel horrible due to the achiness,throbbing & sensitive to touch Feelings i experience from the lipoed areas ( stomach, sides, back & armpits). And sometimes the very top of my buttocks ache bc thats where she injected the fat to sculpt my hips & butt. Now my butt don't really give me any problems most of the time its only if i'm sitting too long or on hard surface (uncomfortable chair). Also The lipoed area's are hard as a brick & will remain hard to the touch under your muscles until everything relax & recover internally. Thats why LDM massages works wonders for our recovery bc they know the technique to drain our system from any toxins left over from sx while softening the scarred tissue & waking up our muscles from the tragedy (Lipo) that they have been thru. So if you can afford them continue them when you get home bc they truly help. Also since where i go to get my massages is a holistic health spa they also recommend Having a colonic cleansing in combination with the massage to detox ur digestion system. I definitly plan on getting one soon.

I have dropped a few pounds since surgery which im always happy about lol..My body feels more sculpted & i feel Healthier overall. Some days my appetite is thru the roof & some days its lite. I only take a women's vitamin daily & still eat plenty of pineapple for internal healing.

Ok now that damn faja (UGh) so i finally got into my phase 2 faja w/ a connector attached. However im sorry yall but i have been hardheaded when it comes to that thing. It so uncomfortable to me i feel worse sometimes when i wear it. I was wearing it mainly at night but now i haven't put it on in about 2 weeks. So i have substitute garments that i wear to compress my torso (lipo areas) bc it feels better & It eases the throbbing/pain. So i purchased a panty garment that pulls up to my breast (kohl's $15), spanx shorts that pulls up under breast (Dillards $80) & a T-shirt garment that compresses really well (walmart$18), and ordered the butt out panty garment from Ebay but i haven't wore this one yet. Another RS sis say she was advised not to wear it til 3 months po so im saving it. So i'm improvising from not wearing that faja everyday, just my choice- not suggesting anyone else does this but this is working for me.
So the1st menstral period after sx is a crucial one- for me i have the IUD Merina
& normally dont have a period but this month i spotted a couple days but the Rumble(Cramps) i felt was no joke. Now once all that cleared up MY SEX DRIVE IS ON OVERDRIVE! LoL I'm sorry TMI but i have to let yall know its definitely not a game ya girl is horny quite frequently & hubby aint complaining! Energy level is up & hubby cant keep his hands off of me ( i love it).
Overall im recovering fine thus far & loving myself & how sexier i look in my clothes. Ladies dont fall in love with your curves just yet bc our body changes like every month. I try not to stay in the mirror too much bc You will become obsessed lol. i've noticed that my butt had dropped some & is rounder than last month & my torso is softening up but still feel like scab healing inside everything is pulling so tight. So thats the part that i be glad when it fully heals, but im being patient & taking my time.

Well here are a few pics for yall enjoy & until next month i wish all of you dolls a blessed sx & speedy recovery!
Also i want to pay respect to those who have lost their life over this last month bc it was a couple that i'd heard off in the DR.( Treena J & Beverly) & recently one of yily's patients i dont know her name But may GOD rest their souls.
Your body looks great! She definitely did a good job. I just have a question. How did you set up someone to pick you up from the airport? My concern is how I am gonna get to the surgery center. I'm definitely not going to haul a random cab because that's' dangerous. Does CIPLA provide a cab? How did you come across Dominga? And after post-op you mentioned you could decide to stay at CIPLA or pay to stay somewhere else correct?
Thanks hun! ok if choose a Recovery House their prices include pick & drop off to & from airport & to all appointments. Only if you decide to stay at the hotel/resort then you have to hire your own driver (Jose Britto) is one & he speaks english & he's on IG too. Cipla doesn't supply Any transportation At all they have cabs that Sit outside you would have pay for on ur own. Also in my review I researched a few RH & choose the one i felt was gonna be best for me, but you would have To read my review bc i wasnt totally satisfied with my stay. So search RS for RH in the DR & quite a few should come up in peoples reviews & Check FB for the RH pages for pics & specials. No once you're at cipla You stay until they discharge yoy then your RH that you choose come & pick you up & take you back to the RH for the remainder of your recovery time. They (house owner & nurse Aids) will care for you until ur surgeon release you to go home. Hopefully this helps you understand.
Ok thank you so much for your help and congrats on your new body!

You look amazing!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to get my work done by Dr.Duran your pictures got me like wowwwww lol
Nice results :)

Finally 6 months PO pictures

Things have been doing well with my body 6 months later. I didn't really measure myself but as far as my butt & hips I've retained my results wonderfully.
I can sometimes feel fluid like movement into my back when I think I've eaten too much& haven't exercised. Which my doctor has ordered me to refrain from bc my hernia i have is protruding so I am getting that examined bc I'm sure it will have yo get repaired. I didn't request Duran to fix bc I rejected the tummy tuck & opted for lipo instead. Overall I still love my results just can't fit all my pants, must try them on bc my hips are a little wider which I didn't lose as some does. Well that's about all. Happy healing to all!
Does anyone have Dr.Duran whatsapp number ?
Thank you @sexyslim40
Dominican Republic Plastic Surgeon

I appreciated that Duran spoke English & that we could understand each other especially with my concerns. She is very knowledgeable & listens to your request. I was satisfied with her post-op care & test that she took for me since I incurred recovery complications ( fever & dehydration). She answered anytime i texted her while I was ill, & answered calls anytime my RH called her about me. So I will recommend Dra. Duran for your surgical needs.
