Hello My BBL Sisters!

I am soooo happy to finally do something for me. I am 29 years old, married, work and attend school full-time. I am a RN going to school to become a CRNA. I was born and raised in Miami, FL but recently relocated to ATL, GA. I have 3 kids (12, 8, and 4) and all boys. I was trying for a girl but now I am like the hell with that. I’m so done with having kids. I don’t have time or the money to take care of anymore babies. It time for me to do me.

I weigh 160 lbs and I’m 5”3” feet. I hate my body. My breast is too big in my opinion. I wear a size 38DD. I have a big ugly gut and a flat butt. Nobody in my family have an A$$ and I mean nobody not my mother, sisters, or aunties even cousins. NOBODY!! Anyway, I have been thinking about the BBL procedure for about 3 years now, but this is my first time ever actually trying to get it done.

Back in July I had a free consultation with Dr. Okoro’s Physician assistant. She was very nice and down to earth. He seems to do great BBL. The only one problem is the price. I think it is too high. I don’t mind spending the money but I really don’t want to. She quoted me 8,695.00 for liposuction of the full back and abdomen and fat transfer with 1 garment. After the consultation, I kind of forgot about it. So one day, my friend and I started talking about getting the BBL procedure and then she told me about this realself.com. I completely fell in love with this website. I mean I am on this websites like EVERYDAY, EVERY HOUR, if I can. I just can’t help myself. I am so excited to see the others girl’s result and read about what their experiences were.

Now I have been looking into Dra. Robles and Dra. Yily. I really hate the idea of going out of the country to get this procedure but it’s cheaper and the doctor’s pretty much gives you the same results and you can stay at a recovery house. I really love the way Dra. Yily does her sculptures. I also looked into Dr. Azurin, Dr Jimmerson, Dr. Salama and Dr. Sant Antonio. Dr. Sant Antonio is located in Weston, FL. He says he charges 5,200 for liposuction of the full abdomen and full back and fat transfer no more than 500cc in each cheek per Florida law. One my friend told me about him, but on his websites I don’t see any pictures of his BBL. When I call the secretary says “he does really really nice work, but he doesn’t have any pictures up on the websites.” I ‘m like well if I can’t see his work why the hell would I want him to work on my body.

Have anyone ever heard of this Doctor? I really would like to have this procedure by the end of January or early February. I have so much going on and I am so undecided, but I got to move fast. I will add so pictures of myself later. Bye for now!!

Hello Secret charm, I have decided to have my surgery with Dra. Yily De Los Santos. I wish to go between Jan 11 or 18. I am just waiting to see if those days are available and then I will put my deposit. Maybe I will get see you there.

Hi there, welcome and thanks for sharing your journey with us!

I haven't heard anyone talking about Dr. Antonio and he isn't a doctor on RealSelf, so there's no review for him here. However, have you asked his staff if they can put you in touch with any former patients? Some doctors do this, so you can speak to others about their experiences.

Good luck and please do keep us updated with your progress!

Good Afternoon my BBL sisters, After weeks of...

Good Afternoon my BBL sisters,

After weeks of researching, I have finally decided to let Dra. Yily to perform my BBL. I am schedule on January 11, 2013 and I will be the second patient. Now, the only thing that I am worried about is my hemoglobin level. I already know it always run low. I have started taking my vitamins but I am afraid that when I get to Dominican Republic, she will have to turn me away because my hemoglobin is below 11. What do you guys think I should do?? I’m starting to think maybe I need to push my date back for a later date in January, but school is about to reopen, my best friend is getting proposal to on her birthday which is January 30, and I’m expected to be there, my sister’s baby shower is January 19, and I am the Matron of honor for my brother-in- law wedding in March 3. HELPP!!! I need advice. I wish I could just perform the surgery tomorrow. What shall I do sisters?

Hey there, Congrats on your journey! You need to goggle different foods to eat as well as taking iron tablets to help boost up your hemoglobin. If you are too low Dr Yily will give you an iron treatment once your there...I'm not trying to scare you but if you drop below 7 after surgery you will need a blood transfusion the cost is about $250 so make sure you take extra money.

Good morning RS!!
I have less than 2 weeks before my big day and I have a few questions. How many garments do I need to order? I read that there is different step of garment to use based on the number of weeks I am. How do I know which garment to use? HELP… I am so lost. Will my doctor be the one to tell me what I need? And if someone can tell me a list of things I should pack that would be so nice and I really would appreciate it. Thanks

I was thinking last night. Why is that mostly all...

I was thinking last night. Why is that mostly all the doctors in the US say once you get the BBL procedure you must not sit and you must lay on your stomach when sleeping for 2 weeks, but the doctors from another country says it is ok? I ask this question because I am getting breast reduction with lift and that means I would have to lay on my back once I’m done with this procedure. Does anybody know the reason behind this? Will this affect our results? Just thought I asked. Thanks

Hello My BBL Sisters!!
I am soooo excited and scared at the same damn time. My sister is supposed to be going with me on this trip. Dr. Yily and I have been emailing each other back and forth. I just add a mini tummy tuck to my procedure. I’m thinking about adding my thighs. I just want to look sexy when I am all done. I drew my labs yesterday so I can find out what my H&H is looking like before I get ready to leave. I would just hate to go to DR and have to come back with no surgery. My date is approaching fast. Hope everything works out for me. Ya keep me in ya prayers. Thanks

Hello My BBL sisters It’s been a long journey...

Hello My BBL sisters
It’s been a long journey for me. I am so uncomfortable. I was not prepared for this part of the surgery. I arrived to DR Sunday afternoon at 3:30. When I got off the plane I was think to myself “ How will they recognize who I am” I had no information exactly who was going to pick me up or where I need to go in the airport. When I finally found my way out the airport, I saw a guy holding a sign with my name on it. I was so happy to have found Junior. Jacqueline was picking up another woman who was coming from Canada. Jacqueline spa is about 20 minutes away from the airport. I was so nerves. They brought us to our rooms and then we ate lunch. The food was so good and everyone was nice and friendly. I meant bigbutt4ever. She was bed bound when I arrived but became very active as people started arriving. She looks great. I then went over to the other rooms to meet the other ladies. Everyone had something negative to say about CIPLA. The night was over and it was my turn to perform my surgery the next day. One thing I didn’t like is that there is no cold water. I love hot water.
So I woke up at 3:00 am on the dot Monday morning and I couldn't go back to sleep for nothing. I lay on the bed until my alarm went off. Got up and it was time to leave. She told me grab maxi pad, tank top, and money. I was thinking to myself I can’t believe I’m going through this procedure. OMG!!! We arrived at CIPLA at 7:00. Yira was there to translate everything for us. They first drew our labs then EKG and then chest x-ray. My HGB was 12.5. YAAA!!! Green light all the way. Me and and easy123 from make me heal decided to share room at CIPLA. Dra. Yiliy came in around 8:45 am. She was running late because easy123 was supposed to have surgery at 7am. She said she was waiting on the anesthesiologist to arrive. She then asked us if we had any questions and marked my body. The anesthesiologist finally came to our room around 9:15am. He was very nice and friend and was not happy that I didn’t take the blue pill. I said was not going to take anything until it was close to my procedure time. Easy123 went for surgery at 10:05 and I took the blue pill at 10:08am. I think I fell right to sleep. When they came for me I woke back up as they brought me to the OR room. I tried to stay up as much as I could. Dra. Yily was not in the room as of yet. I watched the lady set up the sterile table and I soon as he inserted my IV line was out shortly after that. I don’t know if I was dreaming but I think I woke up during my surgery and when they realize I was up I went back to sleep.
I woke up in the middle of the night and I remembered I could not feel my legs and the room door was closed. The girls from Jacqueline Spa said do not let the nurses close the door because no one will be able to hear you if you need help. I then started panicking and called to easy123 what we are going to do the door is closed. She said we have a nurse here that is sleeping with us. I was so relieved. Asked for pain meds and she gave it to me. She was so helpful and I had an actually good experiencing at CIPLA. The next day the nurse left and I had another nurse who feed me and she changed my sheets and the WIFI worked. I was so happy but in pain all at the same time. I had to get a blood transfusion because my HGB dropped to 6.6. I was so unhappy now. During my blood transfusion it was very awful and painful. The infusion was going so slow and I told her she problem needed to insert another IV. She tried and she was not successful. She kept on squeezing the bag so that the blood could drip fast and it made the pain at the IV site hurt so much. I wanted to slap her. After the blood transfusion they called Jacqueline to pick me up. My back was just draining every time I stood up. Jacqueline and Jr. wheeled me out the hospital and I got in the car. I made it up the stairs into my bed. Day one was over and I had a new look.
