Haven't been here long but am already committed,...
Haven't been here long but am already committed, scheduled, and deposited with Dra. Walkiris Robles in DR for September 2014. This will be my birthday present to myself. Never had any hips or a butt and had NO idea that this miracle of fat grafting was an option until I met someone that performs the procedures. AHHHMAZING!
Looking forward to feeling and being curvier.
If anyone will be in DR the week of Sep 8th for surgery, inbox me. Maybe we can be roomies. :)
So far I've gotten 2 Faja's (amazon.com), the standing urinal cup, 100 pack of chux, 100 babywipes, flip flops, 2 pairs of compression socks, pads, bathcloths, robe, nightgowns, foam boards, ab boards, vitamins, arnica gel, and am still collecting the rest of my care items.
Shopping is almost done. I have a box in my living room where I am tossing in the supplies that I need for my "journey of beauty". That's what I'm calling it.
I've posted some before pics here and getting ready for my transformation. I've been working on my inner life transformation for years. Now it's time to deal with the outer world transforming too.
So far I've registered with STEP to let the U.S. know where I'll be in case something happens and they need to rescue me. LOL! I have yet to purchase trip insurance but I'll be doing that shortly.
Yesterday had my blood work drawn and am just now waiting for the results. I've been feeling like I might be a little anemic so I reached out to Dra. Robles and she got right back to me about what steps I need to take. That got me so excited. Have you seen her facebook page?? WOW!

Supplies Supplies Supplies!
I found it helpful when other people posted up pictures of their supplies. It gave me some good ideas about what I needed to bring so I'm doing that here.
I hope this stuff is helpful to others. I got most of my stuff from amazon.com.
The lipo boards came from InThePinkRoom.com which I saw on some other doll's blog.
