Vanity- Dr. Fisher Miami FL

Hello ladies! I have received my quote from Dr....

Hello ladies! I have received my quote from Dr. Yily De Los Santos in D.R.! I'm 34 yr. 5'3 and 130lbs, I'm excited, anxious, worried, scared and everything else...lol I'm ready, so ready to do this, I've been obsessing with getting this procedure done for YEARS!! My plan is to travel in the end of April or First week of May 2014 just have to check with my work schedule to get those days off and get my children situated. I can't believe that my dream body is about to become a reality!!!

Please help trying to send Yily's deposit....

So was just about to send Yily's deposit through xoom and read a post about a scam with her deposit info. So where do I send it? Please Rs sister help.

Renewed passport today...

So I though I received a quote from Yily, so confused because I requested a quote from here (realself) and the quote I received had info to send $300.00 deposit and to use a money transfer service called Zoom. But I heard that Yily stopped asking for deposit from upcoming patients. So, now I'm back to square one...ugh anyway I renewed by passport today $110.00 and I should get it in 4 to 6 weeks. I hope its enough time I'm still looking for plane tickets and planning to leave the end of April. I'm determined to get this done!!!!

2nd thoughts....

Well guys my mind is playing tricks on me...been real undeceive about going to DR or getting this procedure. I know that with every surgery there is a risk and I just think of my kids and it just breaks my heart on "what" would happen to them if something happened to me :'( and just for what my vanity...I really wish that I had some support from my family and friends but when I joke around about getting surgery all I hear is you don't need that your beautiful, what if something goes wrong, blah, blah, blah....no one can understand what I'm going thru I want to do this for me to be comfortable under my own skin and hearing all this negativity is getting to me.

I'm a master of disguise been doing this all my life I know what to wear to disguise my body and make myself "look" good. But I'm tired of wearing girdles, butt pads, but lift jeans, blazers, long tops, sweaters and the list goes on. I want to be able to wear whatever I please!! I need to get myself out of this funk...and gaining all this weight is not helping me out either! So girls hopefully my next post will be more positive.

Update.

So I haven't updated in a while... but still been on here obsessing reading, researching everyone's profiles, lol. It's very addicting I'm on her at work, home and on my phone. Anyways decided to contract Bella Vita for their services on setting everything for DR. It's frustrating trying to organize and plan without getting responses from the Doctors themselves. I've called numerous of times to the DR. and mind you that I speak fluent spanish... with no luck the phone rings off the hook or they answer very rudely and cut me off and transfer me to Yily's extension again with no answer. So hopefully Bella Vita will be able to get in contact with them and give me a final price with accommodations and also answer some health questions I needed to ask Yily.

Also for the heck of it I'm requesting a quote for Vanity Miami, been researching Dr. Hasan. I read they have similar prices as DR. and not having to leave the country is definitely a plus. So hopefully I'll get a response very soon. I only have a open slot from work for April and really want to have this done before the summer. If anyone has any info on Dr. Hasan let me know or vanity, please share.

Vanity- Dr. Fisher Miami FL

HOLY MIX UP IN VANITY!!! But I'm not stressing one bit....my surgery will be with Dr. Fisher! Got 2 weeks to go before my surgery so far everything is falling into place. Have time off at work, kiddies taken care of by the best baby daddy ever...lol. Need to buy some summer dresses to wear while in Miami, hoping and praying for things to go smoothly, finally getting over a nasty cold and finally able to continue my vitamin regimen, haven't smoked or drink since the beginning of this month and actually very proud of myself :) usually when I'm stressed out my ultimate cop out is to hit the bowl.... very bad habit to stop but it's for the greater good I say to myself...soon enough after surgery I will be back at it :D.

Also, I'm very happy that I have the opportunity to talk to a couple of RS ladies and can't wait to meet you girls...it feels good not doing this alone. I've kept this surgery to myself have only told 2 people my baby daddy of course to help me with the kids and a close cousin who will be taking care of me when I get back :) no other soul.... Well chicas I'm not really much of a writer so with that said I will be updating my blog once I'm in beautiful Miami....yay!!!!

Plastic surgery Autopsy report: Woman died after buttocks surgery An autopsy showed Maribel Cardona died of a lung embolism from fatty tissue that reached her bloodstream after buttocks augmentation surgery. By Maria Perez mperez@ElNuevoHerald.com Maribel Cardona, the 51-year-old woman who died shortly after buttocks augmentation surgery performed at Vanity Cosmetic Center in Miami in July, died of complications resulting from the surgery, according to the results of an autopsy. Cardona, also known as Maribel Hernández, traveled from her home in Naples to the clinic located at 8506 SW Eighth Street for a Brazilian buttocks lift, which is done by extracting fat from the patient’s body, generally the abdomen, and injecting it into the posterior. Amy Spinelli, Cardona’s neighbor, said that, according to the woman’s five children, Cardona learned about the clinic through a friend and went there because the procedure was inexpensive there. Spinelli said that, according to the son, Cardona, of Puerto Rican descent, tried to cancel the procedure after her family insisted on the risks involved. However, Cardona’s son told Spinelli that at the clinic his mother, a Walmart cashier, was told that the down payment of $4,000 would not be refunded, so she went ahead with the surgery. Cardona, who went to the center with her boyfriend, began to have difficulties breathing shortly after she was taken to the recovery area after the operation, according to the autopsy report. Anthony Hasan, the doctor who operated on her, said in July that about five minutes after the operation, the anesthesiologist told him that the patient was conscious and talking but that Cardona’s level of oxygen and blood pressure were very low. Hasan did not return calls from El Nuevo Herald left at the Vanity clinic, where according to the center’s web page and an operator there he is still part of the staff. Cardona did not respond to medications and was rushed to Kendall Regional Medical Center, where she died a hours later of a lung embolism, or blockage, caused by fatty tissue. Such embolisms can happen when the tube used to inject the fat pierces blood vessels in the deepest area of the buttocks, inserting fat particles into the bloodstream, said plastic surgeon Onelio García. “This should not happen [to a surgeon],” said García, a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with nearly 30 years of experience and a professor at the University of Miami’s plastic surgery division. Hasan, a dermatologist who is not certified as a plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, was an intern in general surgery and a fellow for three years in plastic surgery. In the state of Florida it is legal for any doctor, regardless of their specialty, to perform plastic surgery operations. Hasan’s profile on the Vanity center’s web page says that he specializes in breast augmentation surgery, as well as liposuctions and tummy tucks. However, there is no mention of any experience in buttocks augmentation surgery. Hasan said in July that he had been performing cosmetic surgeries since 1999 and that Cardona was his first serious incident with a patient. In 2007, Hasan was sued for malpractice in Miami-Dade. The surgeon reached a settlement with the plaintiff and therefore it could not be determined whether there had been medical negligence. Also in July, Hasan was on probation under the indirect supervision of a doctor after pleading guilty of conspiring and cooperating to commit fraud and giving out a prescription medication,Viagra, with labels containing false information. “Those charges have nothing to do with the practice of surgery,” Hasan said in July. “I lent my name to someone I trusted and he abused it.” Hasan does not carry malpractice insurance due to its cost, he said. “Like 95 percent of plastic surgeons.” “I checked everything that had to be checked and, honestly, I don’t believe I could have done anything different,” the doctor said of Cardona’s surgery. Spinelli remembers Cardona as a woman with a young appearance and spirit, who loved to listen to Latin music and go out dancing with her children. “Everybody loved her,” Spinelli said. “She was always smiling.” The death of Maribel Cardona is not the only incident with a patient in the Vanity center. In November, another patient, Linda Escanaverino, had to be hospitalized for four days and needed a blood transfusion after buttocks augmentation surgery.
