I've been learning sooo much on Realself it's...
I've also met a few awesome soon-to-be dolls & already made dolls!!!!
Now I think it's time I start my journey since I officially decided on the doctor.
i'm 44y/o. 190lbs, 5'4". I have 2 children 23 (by c-section) & 18 (vag delivery). I Emailed Drs Yily, Duran, Baez, & Robles. Only heard from Yily & Baez.
Yily quoted me $4300, Baez $3900 for BBL, TT & lipo. BAEZ IT IS!!!!! Quite pleased with Baez's reviews. Yily says I MUST lose 20lbs, Baez says 10lbs. I joined the gym last week & will lose the wt. needed to have a safe surgery. This journey is so exciting travelling with such wonderful ppl. I'm not trying to have a donk!!! Just want to feel good in & out of clothes. Oh yea, I haven't told my husband yet, lol. But he's wonderful & always want me to be happy & do what makes me happy. (so y haven't I told him yet? lol) Though, I will do what I want, maybe I don't want to hear his opinion as yet. I'm sure he's gonna tell me he loves me just as I am. My kids & my mom already know my plans
I've already started slowly gathering my supplies.
I'm looking forward to the new transformation that Dr. Baez is going to perform!!!!
Oh yea, I plan to stay at an all inclusive for 14days. Stay in RH 3 days then go back to all inclusive b/c as far as I have learned, we only need to stay in a RH x 3-4 days. I don't want to leave Dominican until my drains are out.
Y DOES DR. BAEZ HAVE NO AVAILABLE DATES MID-FEB?
SHE HAS NO DATES MID FEB. Was that a disappointment or what? the only thing, she didn't say what dates she has. So I just emailed her asking which dates she has. I REALLLLLYYYYYY would like a date in Feb.
Wish me luck folks!!!!!!!!!!!!

My daughter had sx with Dr. Luis Lima today!
Everyone at Dr. Lima's office is nice/pleasant/friendly. There are a few staff members that speak English. Libby's assistant (I think) lived in the USA. Is very helpful & informative. I am using my translator app. Wifi isn't the greatest, but it's better than no access! Libby gave us a rm with a shower b/c she knows I have sx tomorrow & have to shower tonight & tomorrow am. I think dr. Lima only does up to 4 surgeries/day.
My daughter says she is not in pain. She says it's discomfort+++. She got pain med x1. Which knocked her to heck out x 30mins. She's trying to cope thus far. My turn in am!!! Good nite!
Post op pics of my daughter.
Baez Babe !!!!
Got to Upscale around noon.
Still day 2
Day. 2 post op. First ultrasonic Massage. Wasnt too painful. Back was very tender. Felt like water underneath. Bruising on inner thigh & upper back. Body soreeeer. Massage was good. She will be back tomorrow am. No pain no gain ( i guess). I dont know what else to write for this review. Later!
Dr. Baez came to see me after sx...
Dr. Baez came to see me after sx, before going home. She came to see me the next morning to discharge me & see my incision sites & make sure i was ok. Anytime i called with a concern, she promptly returned my calls. Saw me if needed, and f/u when she said she will f/u. She is conservative on the amt of fat given for BBL but she at least gives to your size. Today is 19 days post op and this abdominal swelling is insane!!!! I thought i'd be better by now! Had my 9th massage last night. This faja is definitely not my best friend yet!
Pre and Post-op Pics!
Just thought id see how i look in my wrkout gear now. With faja on. 21 days post op
Pics of TT & Belly Button taken march 6th (approx 1 month post op)
I still have lots of itching & swelling & stiffness& tenderness & stabbing pains (not Very painful). I still haven't stayed off my butt. It's soooooo hard. I try using pillows under my thigh then my butt still ends up on bed. Or I wake up on bed. Whatever. I'm not gonna let this ruin my life. I refuse to obsess over this. Last night was my best night. I woke once. The last month I woke every 1-2 hrs all night. I woke to pee then was soooo stiff & swollen. Had to get comfortable back in bed to wake 1 hr later.
I was supposed to start work today. My doctor does not want me back yet. I need $$$$ so I will try to go tomorrow, lol. I saved for this sx & the time off but now I need to go back.
I hope this was informative!
What I liked about her was her quick & personalized response. Though some of the quote was generic, she answered my questions personally within the quote. Another plus for her is that she only does 1-2 surgeries per day b/c she does other things at the hospital. I feel that she will not be rushed to "meet a quota".
