I'm a 22 y/o mother from Pennsylvania. I will be scheduling my BBL/BA surgery within the next two weeks with Yily. I'm looking to travel in March and would love to have a buddy to share the experience with. If I'm not mistaken there is a group discount on the surgeries. I would like stay in DR for 8 days max (Yily recommends 8-10 days). Also if you know a good inexpensive RH pls help a girl out! Lol

Quotes From Yily and Baez BBL + BA w BL (Pre-Op Pics)

Before I get into the quotes I received I'd like to give you a better idea of my body type. I'm 5'8" 125lbs with a short torso and long legs. My current bra size is a 36C and my waist is 29". I have a boosted metabolism so its been hard for me to gain weight and I sometimes am anemic so last week I began adding Ensure plus to each meal I eat..(3 Ensures a day). I haven't noticed a difference in my weight yet however I'm still benefitting from the Iron in Ensure so I will continue drinking it up until surgery.

OK LETS GET TO THE GOOD NEWS!!!! :-)

Sooo I requested a quote from Yily, Baez and Duran on Thursday for a BBL and BA with a lift (liposculpture to full back, abdomen, flanks and arms) . I received the following response the following day from Baez.
Hello

Thank you for thinking of me for an evaluation of plastic surgery, for realization of all the surgeries you requested the most important thing is that you must be healthy and the cardiologist must approve that we can perform all procedures. Price for the surgeries that you are requesting breast augmentation and lift, liposculture to arm, abdomen, waist, back, flanks plus Brazilian butt lift (including hips) is US$ 4400 dollars, which includes:

-Airport pick up

-evaluation by plastic surgeon
-Chest X-ray
-EKG
-Cardiovascular evaluation
- Laboratory exams
-Anesthesia
-Surgeries
-Overnight stay in the clinic
-First compressive garment
-Free of charge follow ups

-Medication post-surgery (antibiotics and analgesics)
- Lymphatic drain massages and ultrasound massages are not included , cost is 300 dollars extra

You must be less than 180 pounds or around that in order to have surgery and diminish risk of complications. If you have any clinical condition you must obtain clearance from your doctor, if you smoke you must quit two months before surgery and have clearance of your pulmonologist. The amount of fat transfer to your buttocks depends on how many cc can be extracted with liposuction. Your results also depend on your hemoglobin level if you want to get excellent results you really have to be healthy and no anemia. I recommend you to begin taking vitamins (C and B complex, folic acid, iron) and please ask your primary can doctor to take some blood test like glycaemia, full blood cell count and creatinine at least to know if you can have all surgeries done.
(AND A BUNCH MORE INFORMATION I LEFT OUT....EMAIL WAS WAY LONG LOL)
