Dra. Fatima Almonte 9/30/13 Lipo and Bbl - Dominican Republic, DO

Hello ladies, so I went with Dra. Fatima Almonte...

Hello ladies, so I went with Dra. Fatima Almonte based on a few reviews I've found, schooling, and the attentiveness and quick responses I've received.

A little about me, I'm 25 5'2 no kids roughly 36DD (enhanced) 27 38. I've had lipo and fat transfer to the buttocks in the states but never achieved the results I wanted. The drs here do not take nearly as much fat out as they do in other countries, I'm sure some safety and profit factors in why not. I've never been skinny thin. Even when I exercised and dieted and was the lowest weight of 128 I was still curvy and had fat that I could not get rid of.

So my appt. is scheduled 9/30/2013. I will be flying in the 27th. I chose not to stay in the recovery house and stay in my own hotel nearby. No particular reason other than I like my privacy and being that I've done this 2x before I know what to expect.

Ill keep you updated and feel free to ask me anything :)
Good luck ur day is coming soon keep us updated ur going to look fab Hun!!!

On my way to the airport but I'm so sad...

So I'm in the car on my way to the airport and I can't pull myself together. Not because I'm scared or anything but because I'm going to miss my family and house and dog. Sounds like I'm being a baby right? :(
I'd cry cuz I miss them too but just thus little sacrifice will go a long way sis! Ur gonna look great! ;)
Reply
No I totally understand I will miss my family also.... So I understand :( remember this will pass and u will be with them soon

I am here!!!

So I'm here at the clinic doing my tests. Everyone has been so nice. The clinic is pretty nice considering its another country. I've never been out of the country so I didn't know what to expect. So far everything is great. Last night I spoke to the assistant and she made me feel even better and once I arrived here at the clinic I am even more at ease.
First time i heard of her....now lets see what skills she got...she might come up on top....just wild guess what if she is one of yily student?.........oooooooo.
Reply
I went with her because of her responses. She and her assistant have been more than helpful with all of my questions. I didn't go with yily because I heard she doesn't give you the butt you want anymore but the butt your body should have. So if you want a donk I heard she stopped doing it. Plus I emailed all the "well known" doctors but they take forever to respond and I don't have time for that. I found dr. Almonte on real self and I hope she does a great job and I think she will. I'm very critical and I will give you a straight no frills opinion. If I don't get a huge butt and flat stomach ill be the first to say i didn't like her work. But I really hope her skills match the reviews I've seen.

Gm. Yesterday on my Instagram...

I seem a post saying a woman died after hector cabral worked on her! That made me uneasy so I googled it and sure enough there's the news story. It's not the same clinic so I am not worrying about my dr but hearing something like that makes your mind wonder a bit. I'm excited and can't wait for it all to be over and I can go home. I took some pre op pics this am for you all to see an accurate image if my current body. The ones posted when I first started are from when I first contacted the doctor 2 months ago. In my opinion, my body looks good in clothes and then naked is like umm... Idfk lol

I spent time at the pool today and did some spa treatments, exfoliation and scrubs do my skin will be nice and smooth while I'm in my faja. Ill post again tonight to let y'all know about my room I'm staying in.

One thing about my pics....

Y'all might say my body looks nice, especially the pic in the bathing suit however I'm gonna be brave and post a shot of how it looks when I sit or bend over :( so I only look good standing up, in clothes, or laying down. Smh

I'm all settled in...

I was picked up at 9pm and I'm all settled in my room. My hotel was less than 10 minutes away. I am told Dr. Almonte will come see me tonight at 9:30. Another dr came and took my blood pressure. Everything is fine. The room is decent with cable tv and a bathroom. No complaints here. Can't wait.

Dr. Almonte is so sweet...

She came to my room and checked my body and asked me exactly what I want. I told her I want a shelf back there. Lol. And showed her some more wish pics. She said she can do exactly what I want and that I have a lot of fat left from my previous lipo. I said American lipo is terrible. She's great. And the best part is I won't have a drain. She said she only puts drains in for tummy tucks and I do not need one. So happy. She will be here tomorrow am for surgery. I'm very excited now. Yayyyy. Ill post tomorrow.
Best of luck hun, speedy recovery

Very sore...

I'm sore all over but I'm moving around much better. The faja they have is the one that hooks between your legs, like a onesy. I hate this type bc I feel like it's gonna give me a bladder infections bc it's way too tight down there. I woke up in the middle of the night and had to take it off. I'm about to go buy a new one right now. I see that my stomach is flat but I can't see a difference in my butt yet. I will post more pics soon. Thanks for all the support.
Buy the Fajas D'Prada with the opening between your legs mini short or down to the knee

That's the one I'm getting. I feel good. I was driving today. They said it doesn't make a difference if you sit on your butt or not.

Oh ok. Driving??? Lol! Oh my Lord. Take care yourself girly. God Bless You.

Swollen swollen swollen...

I can deal with the bruises which have been going away rapidly even though they are so big that they're hard to hide, but I just want the swelling to go down. I am sooooo swollen that its hard to tell anything. Looking at myself straight forward, I can tell that my waist is significantly smaller but when I turn to my side I look like a blob lol. I wish is went down quicker. No booty pic yet bc it's sooo swollen you can't tell but I will post one 1 week post op. so Monday sometime.
COngrats... In days you will be a doll:-) can't wait to hear about your experience!

So happy for you! Can't wait for pictures! I got a response from her on Yesterday so now in waiting to see if my date is available. Thanks again for the information and happy healing! Peace and blessings.

Faja pic

Omg, Looking at your pics makes me want ASS & HIPS lol. Im too tiny!
Reply

Observations so far...

So I can tell I have 0 back fat. Like that bra back fat is gone. Also, from my sides, the rib area and under my boobs in the front down to my belly button/the part of my stomach that bends has no fat either. I'm still swollen but I can feel and see it. The lower half I'm not so sure of yet because its still very swollen so idk. And the jury is still out on my butt...

Lumps and bumps...

So most of the swelling went down. The lower abs are still swollen pretty bad. I have a few bruises left but most of them are faded. I am very lumpy right now but the garment and massages will get rid of that.
Looking PHENOMENAL!!! #TeamAlmonte!!!

Before and after

TERRIBLE BEFORE BACK SHOT!!!! But now I have 0 back fat or rolls!!!!!
i live here in tampa fl and im trying to get a hold of dr fatima almonte i emailed her but no response .. ineed to know if you need to take two trips to dr or does she do both consultation and surgery the same week ??
Reply
No need for two trips. U send pics to. Sh gives her suggestions and price and when u see her in person she confirms what you need. U must email her first. Her email is on her website. Just google dr fatima almonte.

Can you email me the dr number .. also do you have to do a consultation first n then go back to dr or can you do the consultation and appointment the same week?

Absolutely one of the best doctors I've seen. I've had 2 lipos before in the states with different doctors and also my breasts done. This place by far is the best. Their attention to you is exceptional and I wish I came here sooner.
