I am the proud mother of three, two biologically, and they are all over the place. 19, 9 and 2 years old. Like all of you, I've been stalking this site for the past four months. I am also blessed with the complete support of my husband. He researches everything deeply, because he doesn't want to deal with the emotional rollercoaster that I'll be on if things don't turn-out right!!! I have pics that make it clear that I am in need of help. I am getting the butt-lift with fat grafting, and a tummy tuck. I wanted to do the breast augmentation with implants, but hubby says that the recovery may be too difficult. As long as he's paying, I'll just have to be patient (LOL).
I have looked at more female behind in the last four months, than I did in all of the previous 34 years of my life!! By far, I thought that the best work was done by Dr Jimerson. When I called in December, I was told that a phone consult couldn't be scheduled until OCTOBER! Ladies, my personal feeling is that I have wanted my body back to pre-baby form for years. Now that I have the chance, I can't wait 10 months to discuss it! My hsband had me call them back and tell them we wanted a personal consult, and we would be paying CASH!! Well, I guess that I used the magic word because we got an in-house consult scheduled for January 28th. I got the "offer cash" idea from my dear BBL sisters. Besides, this decision and my body are too important to me to try to interpret medical jargon over the phone. Plus, I just wanted to get a feel for the doctor by meeting him in person..
Hubby and I rented a car and drove to Suwanee. He...

We told Michelle what we wanted and she covered everything! She has a great personality and we laughed as we compared bodies. She is scheduled for later this year, but has to gain some weight first. After about 45 minutes with Michelle, she sent Dr Jimerson into the office. He was between surgeries but still gave me about 30 minutes. Hubby told him to grab away at my body because we want to make sure our expectations are reasonable! Ladies, he is courteous and professional and really knows his business. Unfortunately, he wants me to gain 10 - 15 lbs before surgery. He is also backed-up and has people scheduling sx for November! He mentioned that Monica was 3 months PO and was still wearing her garment. I asked him about how long a garment should be worn and he replied "SIX MONTHS for best results"!?!? He brought Monica into the office and we could see that she was wearing her garment under her clothes. She looked just like a wish pick herself. Round and full with a nice shape. She said that she had to get rid of her man because he got threatened by her new booty, and that sometimes people just stare at it in public. She also said that she had a new man, and her old man was still blowing-up her phone. Hubby offered some advice and told her that "threatened" is not the word that came to his mind. "I'm standing next to my wife and I still have to look, THAT'S how powerful that booty is!" "What did it take you to find a new man, two, three minutes?!?! You probably went to the mail box and came back with two numbers!" "That is not a threat, that is a CHALLENGE!" The whole room laughed! I love him, but he is crazy!
After Dr. Jimerson left, Michelle went over his surgery schedule. He is BOOKED until August if you are financing. We mentioned that we were paying cash and we wanted the earliest date possible. Michelle said that Jimerson has been taking cash patients on Tuesdays, his usual day off, and had an opening in April and May. Since he wants me to gain weight, we decided on the May 7th date for sx. We paid the $500 deposit and received "our" quote. Tummy-tuck, full lipo including thighs and fat grafting to butt and hips for $15800. Minus the $500 cash discount and we only have to pay $15300! Damn, no-wonder his hands are so soft. He counts money all day! I asked Michelle about after care providers in the area. She has a list of contacts and I will confer with her later about how many days that I might need an attendant. We also locked-in our price before the scheduled rate increases on February 1st!
Since we had nearly four hours for our flight, we decided to check another hotel. Hubby wanted to make sure that I was going to be somewhere comfortable during my recovery. We went to the Hyatt place hotel and got a quick tour. They have more space in the rooms and include free breakfast. The staff was courteous and they provided a free shuttle to Dr Jimersons office. Overall, if I have to spend two weeks in recovery, I would rather do it at the Hyatt. We checked-out and flew back to Philly and talked about the procedure and recovery. Hubby is not wild about the two procedures being done at the same time. Hell, I want three! On the way home, we both talk about alternative doctors, an he mentions that he really likes the tummy tucks done by Yily!?!?!?

When you call, a receptionist will answer. Ask for Yira, the receptionist will tell you "un momento". Five to Ten minutes later, Yira will come to the phone.

I'll also offer a dangerous-looking sleeping suggestion for those of us getting BBL and TT at the same time.

I've started packing, but I'm not posting a a list of things that I'm taking. I've been borrowing from everyone else's and I have nothing unique to add. I have paid my entire balance to Yily via paypal and confirmed with Yira that it was received. I didn't feel comfortable traveling with so-much cash. The best way to get through to Yily is to call her office and ask for her personally. The receptionist will transfer you to Yilys' office, then you will ask for Yily again, then be transferred to Yira. I guess the office she occupies has one central switchboard that will only recognize Yilys' name if spoken in English. Whatever works.
During one of my previous posts, I mentioned that I would try to experiment with sleeping positions that would work best for those of us getting a TT and a BBL. Since I won't be able to lay on my stomach, and I don't want to lay on my new butt, I would try sleeping on my elbows and knees. I placed about six pillows on my bed and staked them together, where they would support my weight, but still be soft and flexible enough not to put too much pressure on my stomach. WHAT DA HELL WAS I THINKING! I have an ultra-supportive hubby, who has been helping me pick-out a nice bum, but insists that it isn't necessary! There I was, ass in the air, trying to find a comfortable sleeping position. Can we say "wasteof-time!!"... Well, not completely, but I'll have to work on that at the RH!
As I said, I have not been updating my journey because of the negativity on RS. But I gotta ask, What is going on where we can't post our PO pics because people are "outing" people who've had surgery? Are haters that petty? Facebook run your life that much?!?!?!?
When I am able I'm going to post my PO pics because it will help and support someone else. That's why I'm here. This is real life!
I leave in four days!

My mind is racing all over the place. I'm happy and nervous and excited and tired and looking forward to meeting Yira and the Elusive Dr Yily! My hubby went through my bags because I always overpack, but he is another avenue of support that I couldn't live without. I want to shout, hide, pray, sing and cry all at the same time!
I'm getting my high-school waist back! Pray for me. My next pics will be from the other side!

I have to add, MY BODY IS CHANGING DAILY!!! Patience is a must. My ass was completely flat when I first saw it in the garment! I've still got a LOT of swelling and bruising, but I've got a nice V were my cheeks meet! Can't wait to change to my butt-out so I can get more lift! This is absolutely surgery in a foreign country! I'll post more comments on the RH later, after a nap.
Not having a good day. I'm in ABSOLUTELY the...
