I decided to do my procedure a month ago. The next step was figuring who my surgeon would be. I had already spent weeks looking at great work from Doctors such as Dr. Salama in the U.S.A. Not being able to find one within a reasonable budget I finally decided to think out the box and comfort zone and opt for surgery over seas. That's when I came across Doctors like Lily De Los Santos and Dra.Duran.
I thought I had found my doc among either one. As time was moving closer I decided to contact them and wait out my options. The unavailability and time period between responses became a turn off. I also factored in other small details. Not fully convinced I consulted with my husband who put it in simple terms for me answering "find yourself another Doc". I shook my head and replied, "I guess your wright". I then continued looking for other surgeons convinced that maybe I should look at other possibilities that great results could also lie on other surgeons hands.
In my search I came across Dra. Australia Fragaso Baez and others aswell. I then showed my husband the names of the new surgeons I was contemplating he quickly picked Dra. Baez and said thats the one. I was surprised how he just made that decision in a matter of seconds and was even more surprised at how confident he seemed at his preference. After reading their responses and comparing cost. I also choose Dra. Baez. Reading other reviews of her good bedside manner and how sweet she was convinced me. I have since then spoken to her twice. I feel secure with my decision. And am looking forward to my surgery date. I booked my flight last night.
I will have lipo of arms, stomach, back, flanks, inner thighs, bbl.
I was 168lbs and am Currently 171lbs I have gained 3 pounds intend to gain 5 more. To increase my body fat. I dont have a huge gut so I wanna make sure I will have enough fat for the bbl. She said 8-10lbs would be good for me. I think ill stop at 8lbs.

I got an email confirmation waiting on my Boppy Pillow and Arnica Gel. I received my P EZ in the mail today. Im almost done packing. I dont plan to bring excess things just what the Dra. Recommended and the Recovery House suggested. I'll add a list of what im bringing this weekend. I might have a buddy Yasmin asked me if I would like one, I said it would be cool. So maybe I'll have one while im there. She said she will keep me in mind.
Since last week I haven't gained weight. So I decided to buy a high calorie protein drink from GNC. I purchased it today. Plan on drinking it 2 or 3 times a day. To gain 4lbs before my Sx date.
