My Nickname is J-Lo(k) Without the Booty and I've Waited Since 1999! Here I Come D.R. to See Dr. Baez!!!! - Dominican Republic

Hi my fellow BBL dolls....So a little about me.....

Hi my fellow BBL dolls....So a little about me...My name is Jenn or J-Lo or J-Lok more recently but funny thing I have no Jlo butt. LOL. I first saw a Brazilian butt lift procedure in 1999 and asked my hubby at time if I could get it...he said if you find it nearby yes. Of course it wasnt a big popular thing yet to have a big ole butt so I got boobs instead. LOL. Well now here I am in 2014 still with no butt and in my 40's and just had a hysterectomy plus a knee surgery so all my running/squat days over (I actually started gettin a natural butt) so I thought to myself Jenn its time to get your booty on and ditch this muffin top, back fat, sagging stomach s**t I seemed to acquire the last few years!!! I believe in Jay-Z's motto - 30 the new 20 well baby 40 the new 20!! I am in better shape and health now then then and think a full body lip and BBL would only boost my self esteem more! Plus just to throw a bonus in I want to give my little ex some revenge since he kept cheating with nasty looking big booty broads....well baby its my turn:)

I LOVE this site...I'm addicted....all the information has been amazing. I first started looking at Miami and Bev Hills being I'm in Oregon, but the more I found the shape I liked I realized I gotta travel to Dominican Republic!!!! I like Duran's work but then fell in love with Dr. Baez and her reviews of how sweet she is and personal and everything ran smooothly. Plus I read some people thought she was conservative but I've seen some recent work and if you tell her to add some cc's in the booty I think she will..it appears she does anyhow. So here I am on the very beginning of my journey...Dr. Baez emailed me this morning to start discussing my health. I told her I just had a physical with flying colors but I do have mild asthma but never have to use my inhaler so I hope that's not a deal breaker. I heard she is very strict on health. I am aiming for October for my procedure because I think I'll have to gain about 10 pds for that extra cushion and figure I'll look like hell in sweatshirts and play it off like I'm going on a major bootcamp diet from Oct to Spring! LOL. Anyways I would LOVE any ideas, suggestions, especially for RH and what to bring and expect etc. Anyone traveling in October would be awesome to link up with as well!

I'm so excited I cant explain it...its like something I've imagined and wanted for years and I HAD NO IDEA it was in arms reach financially...I'm like a fat kid and cake....

*** MY PROFILE PIC IS MY WISH PIC***

No word yet...ugh

So I have not heard back from Baez yet...hoping she isnt going to reject me for asthma..I will cry for real. I told her I just had knee surgery 3 1/2 weeks ago and about 10 other surgeries with no glitches and my asthma is allergy related. Now I have two of my best friends on board about going too....that would be awesome since they are Spanish and even though I have some Spanish in me I am not fluent in language but enough to get by. Having friends there would make me feel so much more secure. I hope I hear from her soon....

More wish pics

Post op pics...

Still nothing...

I wonder if Baez isn't so urgent to contact me since I said I want surgery in October? In the meanwhile I had received some of the US quotes when I started my search I sent requests for info to a few Dr's. I got one in Miami for Vanity and it's $7000 for BBL/lipo plus recovery stay. I got one yesterday from Image Cosmetic Center in Atlanta for $3400 but didn't list what all is included. I don't know what their work is like though...I really wanted to go to DR for the coca coia shape....anyone know of Image?

Heard back from her....

So Dra Baez replied to me and said she wants me to get checked out by a pulmonologist to make sure my lungs/respiratory is in good shape for surgery. I just had surgery 5 weeks ago on my knee and they knocked me out cold more so then they do for BBL and I was fine...I will go and get cleared to be safe. I also asked her if I should gain any more weight to get the maximum cc's for my butt as possible but she said do not gain more weight or I might get loose skin....I was a size 3 frame before my twins and my body stretched to a 200 pd frame at delivery and guess what? NOT ONE STRETCH MARK and my skin shrunk right back to a 4 after....but that was 12 yrs ago and now I've had hysterectomy and alot of stored fat from years of fun so I think honestly in my heart when that gets all sucked out my skin and body will shrink back up. I'm just dying to have my small mid section back and the booty I've dreamt of for years and spend my last days atleast hot! I need to find me a sugar daddy dang it....this girl aint gettin any younger and I just wasted 4 years of my good for nothing broke a** rapper boyfriend that did NOTHING for me but give me more wrinkles and empty my savings along with break my heart with his lying cheating hoodrat hoe loving self! LOL. I dont know if I can wait until October but I have so much going on with remodeling another house I bought & trying to flip it, settling a lawsuit I am in, send my oldest off to UofO and get him settled plus my twins have sports starting...UGH.....I need a P.A. and someone else's checkbook....haha!

Oh one more thing...I think my butt is growing from these herbs....

So on another note I have been taking my normal multivitamin/probiotic/omega 3 like I do daily but I added an extra dose of fish oil and maca root pills...they are a herb from Peru that is known for balancing hormones and lesson periods but side effects can be your booty and boobs growing....well I tell ya ladies my butt is fattening up....I took a couple pics to show you if you look at my pre surgery pics. I figure it cant hurt to add with the volume of it all! LOL

THOSE ARE NOT POST OP PICS !! MY bad they are PRE OP!!!!

Sorry those pics are me now not POST OP but I cant update title or delete. My bad....

SO NO DATE NO QUOTE TIL I GET HEALTH CLEARED

Heard from the doc and she said we will not set date in stone or give me quote until I see the pulmonologist and get full clear on my respiratory and lungs. I have an appt with my regular physician tomorrow to get my seasonal steroid allergy shot and ask him for a referral for pulmo doc. I really hope this is not a set back. I know in US they'll operate on me....I have had 3 surgeries the last few years with no complications being fully knocked out and in DR they dont even knock you out completely during procedure. The fact she is being so persistent on health check kinda has me worried too about the confidence in the anesthesiologist and my asthma....I read that a few of the deaths there were due to asthma and patients not revealing that or having their inhalers with them or going into cardiac arrest. I also read about the gal that had the pulmonary embolism which is a blood clot in her lung but that is normally not coincided with asthma. Its real scary if you start to "over" research because as I said I have had multiple surgeries and never a glitch so if its my turn to go then its my turn to go. I'm not scared of death but I am scared of being in another country and having major complications with language barriers. Anyways I'll just go get checked out and go from there......

Aww hunny dont let this get you down. I like her because she seems like she cares about your health as a whole not just for the procedure. I hope everything turns out ok and works in your favor

Aww, I understand you being anxious about the lung issues and having surgery in a different country. As far as safety in D.R. goes, they may not be as advance as the US, but Dr Baez is one of the best. She just wants you to be as safe as possible. I know you don't want to start over, but if you're still apprehensive about leaving the US to get surgery done, maybe you should stay here.

Make sure you are checked out and everything will work out, take your vitamins pray if you have faith and all will be good. If you think about it $6000 for everything you get out there is worth it. Think positive and just have resources, nothing negative and you'll be in good hands w/Dra Fragoso Baez she is just great as I always say if you want something natural and true to what she can do go to here. She doesn't put her career on the line for any patient.

Yes just get a clearance and move on. I completely feel dra baez surgery is very risky and each surgery has its own set of problems.. I know it sucks but you should be happy she is caring about your life and her career. People always talking about U.S.A but we have a lot of bad cosmetic procedures here also. Just be safe and get the test done.. it will be okay.. this sx isn't as cheap as people think it adds up fast really quick. I have a quote for $3800 but including my stay, meds, airlines fare im at $6000 im thinking maybe staying here maybe okay if I could only find a good surgeon.. good luck

yes true there are risks with surgery anywhere you go. I appreciate her concerns I do because I know your body goes in shock for a bit. Its true though it adds up quick and I figured $6000 was a true amount but I'm not ruling out US doctors if I can find a good one that gives the good results and fair price. I just really like the DR drs concept of the coke bottle shape and they do more aggressive lipo and fill that booty up! LOL. Good luck to you as well... ITS ALOT! ha.

What are you having done?

I'm having BBL - full body lipo from chicken arms to inner thighs LOL. I might have her check my breasts out and see if she can fix them. I had a boob job in 99 and was like 119 pds so silly me thought I should go bigger for that real playboy bunny look and had another in 2000 and in 2002 delivered my TWINS so much for 119 pds and perky boobs so in 2008 I had my big implants taken out and got a lift however my DR sucked ass at it...he didnt stitch up the bigger pockets from the bigger implants so basically they just fell right back and he left some flap of skin underneath...I had it fixed once but its back. LOOKS AWFUL and mind you I paid CASH every surgery so we are talking over ten grand invested in shitty looking tits. LOL. I figure Dra Baez can see if she can lift and tuck em up since Im hoping to get back to my small frame body after shes sucks the life out of this fat stored up!!! What all are you having??

Hey love.. so you got your date.. so I wonder who else has our date.. reading your post made me feel better I have been so stress out lately.. where you staying you need to join my group on facebook SweetOctoberCheeks maybe we can keep each other motivated :-)
  • Reply
No date yet...she said she wont schedule or give me quote til I see specialist dr. I have appt with my reg dr today to get referral to pulmonologist so I can get cleared and set date. I am thinking beginning/mid Oct...when is your date again? I will look up your facebook. I get nervous but I'm anxious too and just want to get it done however I have alot of stuff going on right now and finances tied up so must be patient!! Ughhhh I am dreading this body in this summer attire:( LOL. How is everything going for you? So I need help with the whole Faja thing and sizes....I ordered a waist clincher and butt lifter shaper on ebay and waiting to get those to judge sizing. I figure I can wear the clincher now to start pushing my ribcage in a bit since they stretch out with my twin pregnancy and that is what makes my mid section look wider. The research on supplements and vitamins is overwhelming too! LOL, HELPPPPP

7000 is too high for Fisher at Vanity. I've been following his work for months, and from I've seen, his BBL/lipo are almost always between 4500 and 5000 (without the recovery stay), unless you're getting another procedure done. Are you sure that price doesn't include the cost of the recovery stay too? Because his RealSelf profile says it does.
  • Reply
YES it did include the recovery stay!! And massage and one garment. I just dont understand why the prices are all over from $3400 to $12000.
  • Reply
In my state, a BBL easily cost over $20,000+. The prices all depend on a number of factors, like: cost of living, level of expertise, availability, state regulations, competition in that region, ect.
  • Reply
$20000???? What the....well its definitely worth it to you to travel to Miami or DR then! LOL....
  • Reply
I know right! I don't see how people can pay that much! I'm definitely going to FL or DR for sure! Lol!
  • Reply
They be saving for years and maybe use carecredit I was quoted for &13,000 for tummy tuck and lipo on my back and sides. I was like (I'm not T.I wifey) lol..
  • Reply
I still don't understand how someone can spend $20,000+ in Maryland on a procedure that cost less than half that in Florida and surgeons are twice as good! .....Getting a loan/line of credit would be extremely difficult for me without a co-signer. I don't even have five years of credit history, and my score is pretty low, just over 600. So my best option would be to save. It'll take me years to reach my goal, but hopefully I get there... eventually. Lol!
  • Reply
I dont know why anyone WOULD spend that much when you can travel anywhere else with better surgeons for $600! Save up and build your credit...a mid 600 score will get you care credit.

Okay. Thanks. ;) I'll try to do that.

Good look honey. My surgery is May 21st. She does answer emails and especially whatsapp.
  • Reply
Oh wow that is so close!!!! I will go read your story:) I think I just have to stay buggin but feel like a stalker! LOL. Maybe since I told her my ideal time to do procedure isn't until October she isn't feeling rushed to respond...? Good luck and keep us posted!!!
  • Reply
Just try emailing her again, she's really good about responding. Ive sent her over 30 emails with different questions, and she's responded to every one of them. I couldn't imagine having surgery with anyone else simply because of her kindness.
