This is my first post on this website . I am...

This is my first post on this website . I am looking into getting lipo & a brazilian butt lift . I am almost absolutely sure I want to go to Dr.Yily in D.R. I love her work & I feel she can help me achieve my desired body . I want to go in August, hopefully she has time for me . My mom wants to come along with me , Any suggestions on where I should stay , if possible I'd like my mother to stay at the same place as me . I am extremely excited , as is my husband !! I just started looking into having the procedure done & I the anticipation is killing me . Ladies Please share your insight & opinions with me .


Welcome and good luck with your journey. Did you already conacted Yily? I am going on July 5th.

On sunday , I emailed both her on both her email accounts & I also filled out that little form on her website . Still waiting for a reply !
Great. Waiting game now. Good luck on your journey. Any help let me know.

Ughhhh going crazy !!!

I am still waiting to hear from Yily , I emailed both her email addresses on Monday & I emailed her again today .. I'm going crazyyyyyy !! I emailed Baez on Sunday & she got back to me yesterday (wednesday) ... I emailed her a few more questions today but still waiting for a reply ... I emailed Duran on Tuesday & she got back to me the same day .. This waiting game is bananas ... I emailed Pizzoglio on Sunday & he got back to me , the same day ...So my husband is telling me I obsessed with RS ,lol...& I can't stop checkin my emails , what's a girl to do ? I even called Yily's office twice & no kne picked up .. I'm trying to get my BBL WITH LIPO , in either the end of July or within the first 2 weeks of August .. Time is tickin .. I just wish Yily would get back to me ...


Yily will give you a quote, just wait a little. The goid thing is that you can compare and make a good decision. She usually takes a week.

Thank you (fingers crossed) .

Pre op pics

Here are a few pics of me , that I took today ... I have mixed feelings about my body .. Grrrr!! I definitely need my dents filled ,ASAP ... Dammit I wish Yily would get back to me with a quote already


Yes u do look damn good even if you didn't have 2 kids ;) I can't wait to get my bbl in dr. Dr yily creates beautiful bodies :) best if luck to you

Thanks love ... I hope I get a call back soon , if not ill be a Duran doll ,like u

Finally spoke to Yily :; well kind of...

I was tired of waiting for a response from Yily , so I had my mom call her cellphone ( cuz my Spanish is almost nonexistent) & she picked up . My mom told her that I sent her an email with pics & questions , she said that she would check her email & get back to me ! So the waiting game continues ...


Yay! :) they both do incredible wrk

Confirmed appt with Baez

Just spoke to Dr.Baez , she is very quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I have . I know that she is a newer , less popular doctor than Yily or Duran but she actually takes the time to respond to her patients . We confirmed the date of August 14 th for my bbl & I am just waiting for her to send me before & after pictures of some bbl's she has performed , she said she would send them to me as soon as she's done responding to the rest of her emails . I'm still waiting for Yily to respond , if I choose Duran I just have to send my deposit to confirm a date ! Baez doesn't require a deposit which is very good if your still in the decision stage !!


Yily is definitely not the best with communication, but a lot of people have been pleased with her results. BTW, you look GREAT for having two kids.
  • Reply
Thank u :))))) I want a donk!! Lol ... I hope she can do it for me !

YAYYYY!!! Yily finally got back to me!!

Soooo I received the same automated message that everyone receives , but it still leaves me hopeful . I wrote back to her in spanish using GOOGLE TRANSLATE (amazingggg) & I requested a date in August ! I also told ger that i have read that she slmetimes sees 5-7 patients a day & that I am very nervous about that :; I asked her could she possibly let me know if there are any days that she is not overbooked & if possible could I be first , I hope she doesn't take another 5 days to get back to me ... But i guess Patience is a virtue ... Ooh just a note* united airlines has a fare lock option , & you can lock in flight fares for up to a week , just in case your not ready to book your flight !!! It costs less than $10 , it is the best thing to do especially since we're all playing the waiting game waiting for these doctor to reply to us .... Smooches dolls*


I think you will look great, you look good already so your results should be amazing. Good luck.

I'm sure she wont, I leave in 8 days, well technically now 7 days and surgery on July 2 so I'm excited and nervous but I'm sure she'll do a great job on you. I hope she does a good job on me too. I took my pics down becasue of some safety concerns after another girl's page was hacked but I hope to post plenty of post op pics.
Good luck :))))

Started my vitamins today

So I started taking my vitamins today even though I still don't have a response from Yily & a set date ... I may have a few buddies to take this journey with thanks to NJPRBEAUTY ... I'm excited !

Still waiting ...

I received an email from Yily yesterday asking me to resend my photos , so I Did & now the waiting continues . I'm also still waiting for Dr.Baez to send me more pictures of procedures she has performed .. My husband is giving me $1000 tomorrow to book my flight & set a date with either Yily or Baez ... He's seen so many pictures of Yily's patients , as well as some of our RS sisters, such as NJprbeauty & BootyliciousD , that Baez seems to pale in comparison to Yily but Baez seems to be a lot more compassionate & she seems to be less busy than Yily but can she give me the body Yily can ? Will I be a Baez Babe or a Yily goddess? Hmmmmm... Only time will tell

This money is burning a hole in my pocket

I'm starting to get frustrated ! I want to start book my flight & get my passport application done & over with . But I can't because I'm still waitingggg for Dr.Yily to respond , again:( .. On the brighter side I may have a buddy or two to travel with & share this experience with (even though it may not be a very pleasant one) . I have my heart set on the second week of August & I'll be hopefully flying out of EWR but Id be willing to fly out of JFK , if I found a buddy that was traveling from JFK just so I wouldn't have to fly alone .

A little about me :; Things I forgot to mention

I'm 25 :; from NJ
I have 2 AMAZING sons who I absolutely adore .
I'm happily married :; I've been with my husband for 10 1/2 years ( we're still madlyyyy in love )
When I told him I wanted the BBL done , he was hesitant & still is at times , but he knows that ultimately this will make me happy . He is the person who is paying for me . "MY HUSBANDS BUYING ME A BODY " how romantic,lol!!!


NJexcitedd, advice, send your application for passport now if you are thinking of getting our sx during the middle of august. Approximately akes 4-6 weeks, but it is not guaranteed. My buddy is still waiting for hers and we leave in 5 dys, and they are still processing and she sent her applcation before me. So just in case... Take care if that soon.

Looking for a Buddy April 29,2013

Hi Ladies,
I was originally set for August 5th,2013 with Dr.Yily . But I postponed my BBL for 2014 because my husband & I are taking my babies to Disney & Universal studios instead. So now I'm going to have to go in 2014 because I have school until Dec 20 ,2013 & then I go back from January 13 to April 28, 2014 . I want to fly out from either JFK OR EWR on April 29,2014 & have surgery on April 30 & I want to come back on May 9.. If there are any ladies that are planning on going on these dates please let me know !!!

So. I asked the Doctors on Real Self a Question

And one of the doctors that responded to my question , felt that I've had sx done before . What the hell ? I've never had surgery done in my life & he said for me to get implants , wtf!!! I'm confofled,lol

I am not sure you would have to gain any weight if you have not had any previous liposuction. I routinely perform the BBL on patients who are 5'3 to 5'7" and 115 lbs to 130 lbs. The liposuction in thinner patients requires a more specialized effort on the part of the surgeon. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts and liposuction procedures each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

You need to be examined by an experienced plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate. If you have had previous liposuction, this will affect your outcome as well. The more weight you gain prior to surgery, the more fat can be added to your buttock and hip area. Consult with a few plastic surgeons in your area before making your decision. Best wishes, Dr.Bruno

It seems from the pictures posted that you had some surgery already.Gaining wait may destroy the body shape. There is no way to tell where you will gain and if that fat can be harvested with liposuction to do a Brazilian Butt Lift. As of now, based on the pictures, some liposuction and body contouring, and Butt Implant may get you near the shape of your ideal shape.

Talking to my husband late nite...

& I might go in January 2014 instead of April 2014 to get my BBL done. If I go in January it has to be between within the first few days of the new year because school starts on the 13th for me . If that is not possible then around April 30th it is . I know I'm probably driving people crazy because Im not sure of a date but hey we gotta roll with the punches ") .. I also emailed Yily & Baez & i asked then could I can send them my deposit to lock in my quoted price & they both said yes :; due to their increased popularity , I know their prices will definitely change by next year ...


Hey I plan on going during the beginning of January due to school as well!

Where do u live ?
Massachusetts! You ?!

Got a quote from Dr.Salama (just cuz)

I need to explore all my options ! My gut is telling me to go with Yily but I don't want to go into this journey close minded!! Dr.Salamas patient coordinator Nancy is so sweet & she responds so quickly !!! Here is my email from her :

I hope this email finds you well. I do thank you for sending in your pictures for Dr Salama to review. After reviewing your pictures he did say that you were a great candidate but when he saw your wish pictures then he suggested you gain a little bit weight. Wow girly you want a big booty…LOL!! The following were his comments:

“Patient is an overall good candidate for the BBL surgery. She has good fat deposits in the areas that I would liposuction which are abdomen, flanks, and back. I’ll aggressively work these areas to create more contour and shape especially the flanks. I’ll use all fat available to create a more projectioned fuller buttock region. The waist size will certainly be reduced due to the aggressive liposuction, so that will be a nice change in body structure. After seeing her wish pictures you may want to tell her to gain about 5-7 lbs before surgery. Other than that, I foresee giving her great results. “

As you can see he is quite comfortable with what he will be doing with your body. The cost of the BBL is now $8,999. We do require a 10% non-refundable deposit to secure a surgery date.

So my quote is $8,999 & he's confident he can give me a BODY!! His quote is $5799 more than Yily . What to do , what to do ?!? I don't know what it is about Yily that keeps pulling me towards her .. it's a little scary , lol


Hey I plan on going next year from jan-April looking for a travel buddy
  • Reply
Who are u going to ?
I will be going during the summer of 2014...the beginning of July, to be exact

Trying to gain about 10 lbs(help)

I just gained about 1 or 2 lbs !!!, I want to gain about 10lbs altogether , just so I make sure I give the doctor enough fat to work with .. I definately do not want a tummy tuck , so I want & need to stay at or about 155 lbs. .. I don't know what to eat to make me gain this weight , but I have about 5 months to put on the weight. I just want to make sure I maintain it. PrettyPhysique's body is off the charts & she is 5'3 & she weighed 147 at time if surgery. So I'm trying to weigh the same as her in comparison to my height(5'6) ... Any suggestions?


Well if you plan on going in January then email me and we can tak from there :)
I will let you know and keep in touch.

I'm all over the place !!

I emailed Dr.Jimerson twice thru his website & it's been about 3 weeks since my first email and I still haven't received a response . How did u J.Curves ladies get in touch with him ?


DR. Salama nurse Nancy is amazing and response is so quick, she is a customer service sweetheart.....I was Thinking switching to him as well.... good luck and you sound like a wonderful Momma

Some people have been planning this surgery for a while now , but I just found out about BBL's last month & now I only have 1 month to plan ...YIKESSSS!!! But determined so it'll be fine!!! On another note I'm supposed to gain 7-10 pounds , & I feel like I totally failed yesterday cuz I didn't pig out like I should have. I just can't force myself to eat , but I have to time is ticking & I need to give Yily something to work with !!! That's all for now dolls :)


Hello Sweets! Just read your journey so far and I'm glad you settled upon a date! So you have almost a month to the T, huh?! Okay, cool! You can do it! I know you have two angelic boys at home, but try to get the hubby or somebody else to do a lot more with them physically if you can. You have to IMAGINE you'r'e officially a COUCH POTATO! If you have to go out and run errands and go here, go there- just plan one trip and try to park as close to the entrance of the store/supermarket/mall as possible (even if you have to wait)! I know it sounds lazy but that's pretty much what you have to become in order to keep your golden fat! Eat bad but juice well. Eat fries, cheeseburgers, steak (for the iron and protein), tons of carbs (rice, breads, bagels, pasta) choose creamy sauces (anything with a cream base). When you eat, plan to leave room for dessert (cake, pastries, donuts). Again, I stress balance, have tons of fruits and veggies too, it's a nutty game of cat and mouse. Try not to eat too much diary as it can interfere with your iron intake. I know it sounds gross but I started frying almost everything I ate and it helped me gain an inch all the way around. (Fried tilapia, fried chicken, even fried oreos!!) Stay hydrated and make sure you stretch and do some type of yoga to keep your body limber so you won't be so sore after surgery. Love u!!! xoxo
  • Reply
P.S. judging by the pictures you have up, Yily is gonna WERK YOU OUT and give you a supermodel body!!!! WOOOOP! Let the countdown begin!!! So happy for you!
I freaking LOVE YOU , you are amazingggg. U are so intelligent & savvy that I'm astonished !! I'm going to listen to everything u said to eat , cuz i know nothing about nutrition , carbs , protein etc. &I was a pre med major , go figure!!!) I need to gain weight ASAP.. & about my future results , I hope I give her enough fat to work with . It's crunch time!!!! Thank you MY Fabulicious for your kind words of wisdom :; your words definately hold weight !!

Pre op pics back up

I erased my pre op pics because so many people were saying that they googled themselves & saw their pics :( so i cropped & then I put my pics back up because I hate to see reviews without pre & post op pics . The only way we can help each other is to experience all the good & bad that one another has . I would be doing my BBL sisters a disservice if I didn't share ..

On another note :; I'm standing in line (a very slow,long line) So i can put in my application for my expedited passport ... I'm less than a month away , but I intend to have my flight booked by this week . :)

Did anyone get insurance from for Yily

I'm trying to purchase an insurance policy from instead of Yily so I avoid the $250 insurance fee that she charges . Have any Yily Goddesses that have had their surgery already use insurance from insuremytrip ? And if so what policy did u pick ? I want to get my insurance ASAP . So I can get another thing out the way . !!!


Awe! I I love your review so far!!! I have 2 boys too!! and Your thin like me! Lol!! You will be surprised how much fat Yily can find! Try to gain 5-6 lbs and then continue to gain a little after if needed.... Remember fat cells don't multiply they only shrink or get larger with weight loos or gain.... So after the fat is transferred you won't gain much weight in your lipo areas because the fat cells are no longer there but your butt will get larger with weight gain because not only are the fat cells expanding there are more fat cells in that area to expand.... I hope that makes sense to you... Lol
  • Reply
Oh and don't get me wrong you can gain weight in your lipo areas if you gain an excessive amount of weight 15+ lbs...
So helpful , I needed that hope ...THANKS A MILLIOOOONNNNN :) :)

Sent in my deposit!!

To all u Yily Goddesses that have yet to send in a deposit here is how to do it ..So in order to send in ur deposit , you have to create a Chase quick pay account . It's free & you do not have to be a Chase account holder . You have to go to & create an account . You need to have a bank account , even if its with another bank (I have Td) . You have to put in your bank account info. :; routing & account # & then chase will make 2 small deposits to ur account , both less than a dollar . (They deposited the money the next business day) . Next u have verify the amounts & then ur good to go . You have to add a payee . Which is obviously Dr.Yily & her email address . Then you're good to go .

I just did mine & I'm just waiting for confirmation from Yily ;)


I'll be there August 18th. Where are you staying?

That's awesome , I hope It works for me as well !! I don't want or need any infections, lol . The only thing I want to come our of this surgery with is a BIG BUTT & tiny waist :)

Sooo change of plans , AGAIN!!!

I have been on a mission to gain weight and its just not happening :( I started out at 143 , I've been eating like crazy , & drinking 2 ensures everyday & this damn scale keeps tricking me . I weighed myself yesterday and I was 146.2 & today I am back at 143 . I try to weigh myself at all different times of day and I've been 144 , then 144.8 , then 145 , the. 145.6, then I was soooo excited when I weighed myself yesterday & I saw that I was 146.2 , & today I'm back at 143 ... I'm going crazy & this is starting to take a toll on me . I only have 20 days left until my surgery date & I am not going to have it done unless I weigh at LEAST 155 ... I think I'm going to drive myself crazy forcing myself to eat for the next 20 days and still not gain the weight I need .. I'd rather prepare myself mentally & emotionally now by setting it in stone that I will be Yily-licious next year instead of in the next 20 days .I wanted to go in January , because I will be on break from school for the first two weeks of 2014 but I know Yily is Pregnant so I just emailed Samira to confirm that Yily is not doing any surgeries in January & she said Yily will NOT BE PERFORMING ANY SURGERIES FOR THE FIRST 2 weeks IF JANUARY !!!! (What a bummer , but a baby is a beautiful gift from God that she will be enjoying so I can't blame her , :) ) So I asked if I could get April 30 ( 2 days after I get out of school ) so I'm waiting for a reply . I will update as soon as she responds , it only took her about 2 hours to respond to my first one that I sent today !!!! I also asked how much breast implants would be ( I'm trying to convince my husband but he doesn't want me to get them because he believes my boobs will be hard & he likes them to be soft ) . She quoted me an additional 1700 so my original quote (which I locked in for next year!! YAY ME !!) is $3200 , plus an additional $250 for my arms = $3450 + $1700 (if my husband changes his mind , with my excellent persuasion techniques, lol ) = $5150 with implants & $3450 without .. So as of 5:34 pm today I have a little over 9 months 3 days to get some weight on my body . Here's to nothing


Go to your doctor ask him to prescribe you periactin so it can increase your appetite. Trust me, you'll gain the weight way before your surgery date. Tell your doc that you're stressed out and you havent been eating like you used to and its affecting your day to day activities and you need a pill that will stimulate your appetite most likely he/ she will prescribe you periactin. Thank me later ;-). I went from 119-147 pds in a month or two.

Where were u a few days ago before I rescheduled my surgery? I needed u :( .. I'm gonna definately ask my doctor for it in a few months . But thank you . Your a life saver because I don't think there is anyway I could gain this damn weight
sometimes gaining weight is not the answer you should post questions on the ask a doctor tab.. they said that when u gain weight no necessiarly is good fat.. i have seen woman come out wit nice bodies that r ur frame.. look thru the b4 and afters and youll see what im talking about..

In exactly 9 months , ill be flying to D.R.

9 months is a much longer time to wait than the 16 days I would have to wait (from my original date of August 15) but everything happens for a reason & God had it in his plans to make me wait until next year . Instead of being upset about it , I'll just use the extra time as means for better preparation !!! I now have 2 new travel buddies for April 2014 & instead of rushing our accommodations and travel plans , we have ample time to prepare !!!


Super excited ! :D

I'm taking 2 iron pills every 12 hours .. & I'm drinking 2 ensures a day . I was partially anemic too but I called my doctors office (Gyno) & they said I was 13 or 13.8 . 
Looking at your pics, I dont know WHERE she is getting the body fat from???!! Lucky girl!

Me !


Based on your wish pics for example Stephanie Santiago she has 12 cc's each cheek. Duran might be best for you. She gives bubble juicy butts yily doesn't. If she gave durandoll (around my size) 17cc I'm sure you could get at 12cc or more.

In dr ur hemo is down a level. My hemo was 13.5 in the states in Dr was 12.8

Which Doctor is best for me ? Duran or Yily

So I had a huge update written out but my phone froze & I lost the whole thing . In a nutshell I was stating that I'm a huge believer in "Everything happens for a reason" & possibly thru all my date changes and my school schedule as well as Yily's pregnancy & not being able to get my BBL done in the beginning of January & now having to wait until the end of April for my surgery , due to school , my anticipated weight gain , Yilys pregnancy & wanting a huge butt , I am considering Duran again . Everyone says that Yily doesn't give huge butts but I don't believe that for a second ( LolaJae, KrissyLee21, NJPRBEAUTY & BootyliciousD all have beautiful booties ) but what I will say is after seeing Duran give 1750cc's to DuranDoll , I think that may be the route to go . I have a long butt & I really need alot of cc's & if any doctor can pack in the fat , it has to be Duran . I just want to gain weight so she has enough fat to work with . I don't want to even consider a round 2 , so it's all or nothing . I'm waiting for a response from Duran as we speak & although I was DEAD SET on Yily & I feel like a trader I have to do what's best for me & with all the timing conflicts & all the obstacles in my way , I think Duran may be the doctor for me . I know Yily sculpts tiny waists but my waist isnt big to begin with . I already sent my deposit to Yily , but I am willing to loose it , if I can gain the booty , I want . Ladies please share your ideas and input , it's greatly appreciated .


I'm going to try to gain a few pounds so she can get me closer to 1750ccs . 
She may be for me too, just waiting for a response 

This is killing me

Yilys is on maternity leave from...

So I just got confirmation from Samira (Yilys assistant) that Yily will be operating until the 3rd week of November & then she is returning to work on the 3rd week of January...


Yes OMG Durandoll's results r incredible. I need 1700 ccs in my life!! I am exactly 1 day under 3 months pre op n can't wait!! :)
  • Reply
@bklynbeauty:; I'm excited for you , I was only 16 days pre-op before I decided to reschedule surgery due to my non weight gain ... Your gonna look the ;)
OMG 15 lbs in 3 weeks?! Sound like me. I can easily gain that much (due to my very slow metabolism -_-).. I plan in gaining 10-15 for Durán to make me bootylicious so once I start that next month (2 months pre op ill be good 2 go)..

Crazy dream :(

My BBL obsession is taking over my subconscious . Im going to share my dream with you to the best of my recollection . Here goes :: This morning I woke up from a crazy dream . In my dream , I had just woke up after having my BBL . I wasnt in any pain . I took off my faja to see my results and I saw that I didn't have any Lipo done to my love handles , back or flanks . I looked more square & boxy then before the surgery . My butt was a mini version of an upside down heart . I was so upset then I found out that a male doctor whose first name was William (i cant remember his last name) performed my surgery . The doctor just took me from the waiting area after I took the blue pill . Which was crazy because I was scheduled with either Yily or Duran (I cant remember which one) I went to my husband to find out what happened & he said he didn't know the other doctor took me into surgery . I then asked him if he paid & he said he had to run out really quick & gave the money to Josie (a 50 something year old ex coworker of mine ) so that she could pay the doctor , I don't even know why she was there ?!? WEIRD!!! Anyway I said that I was going to ask for the money back & if the doctor said no then my husband would have to pay for me to get the surgery done again !

I was so upset after I saw my results , & now I'm nervous that I won't get the results that I want :(


Think positive Hun! You will look amazing ESP if Durán works her magic on you! I haven't had any pre op sx dreams yet but will prob get em some closer to time..
  • Reply
I always have dreams, I probably won't dream or at least remember my dream twice a week at most . My dreams are usually relevant to reality , in a twisted way . 
Girl you are most likely just having those dreams from worrying about your sx ! It's on my mind 24/7 sometimes I can't even get things done, my mind wanders back to my sx and I come to this site to read more post op reviews smh. Try to take your mind off it for a day or two. Everything is gonna be okay, you have to think positive. xo

Staying at Domingas !!!

I'm am soooooo FREAKING exciteddd !!! Not only about the surgery but also about who I am sharing every bit of my journey with . After an extremely strange chain of events & gossipy mother & aunt. I found out my cousin was also getting a BBL & LIPO done . And that she was going within days of me. AND she was going to DURAN... This is a crazy world !!!! But I totally appreciate the craziness that brought my cousin & myself together in the JOURNEY TO THE OTHER SIDE... I am so happy that I have her by my side !!!!! :) :) :)

With all that mushiness to the side ,lol. We have decide to stay at Domingas .. I know there was a bad review or 2 but my cousin spoke to Dominga quite a few times within the last few days & she ensured her that the pipes were fixed & she got a new a.c !! So were going to Virginias & Domingas for the entire length of our stay , which will be 10-12 days due to my cousin having a TT .

I can't wait til January ,even though after I booked my flight to D.R. , I cried . My husband asked why I was crying & I told him , I finally felt like this was REAL. I haven't spent more than 4 nights away from my babies their entire lives . 3 nights was because of a business conference in San Antonio for Work & I night they stayed in P.A. with my mom . I even brought them along with me on my honeymoon . *Side Note : My 8 year old will 9 on September 5 & my 7 year old will be 8 in February . **
I can't believe I'm such a wimp ,lol . I dont know how Im gonna get on that plane , but somehow , someway I am going to do it !!! I have to to Wo"MAN" up & get it together . !!! I honestly don't think I would have been able to do it without all my R.S. sisters & this website . Thank you ladies !!!

In this case I like the inconsistency , I'm going to save $300 YAY!!! At the same time I sent her the email from the new address , I sent her another email from the original email address (where I received my first quote ) and I still haven't received a response yet . AND Duran is now only requesting a $250 deposit instead of $500 !!!! Her email address is : , she still has listed in the bottom of her email signature & Whatsapp signature .

Bittersweet day :( :)

Today is a bittersweet day :( :) I was supposed to be boarding a plane & heading to D.R. as we speak . I was scheduled for my BBL tomorrow August 15 with my buddy DeactivatedModel but we both weren't going to be ready , so we decided to switch our date. I was scheduled with Yily at the time but I guess everything happens for a reason because I've decided against going to Yily & my cousin is now my travel partner/buddy/confidant . In hindsight I wouldn't have been ready mentally,emotionally ,or physically this early in my BBL journey , Im so happy that I took the time to really research & I'm glad I switched my date because I've learned sooo much more than I knew before !! I was rushing myself before & I didn't know half the things I know now . I'm so glad , my advice to all you BBL virgins is please don't rush ur surgery date just because you want this so badly, take the time to research & learn from the BBL vets , you'll feel much better in the end !!!

*** I've gained 4.2 pounds , I'm now 147.2 (I just weighed myself this morning ) last night when I weighed myself I was 149( but I know we are heavier at night), but I'm sooo happy Im actually gaining weight this time , I've been tricked by the scale before but I hope this time it's real !!!! Im so grateful to my ENSURES, I'm kind of addicted to them , & to think I hateddd them before my quest to gain weight ..& now I can't go more than a few hours between them . I drink about 4 a day , yesterday I think I drank 5 :/ I lost count ,lol ...

** I'm also really proud of myself because I've been taking my vitamin c , & iron pills religiously for the past few weeks to a month or so . & Yesterday I began taking my b-12 vitamins !!


Awwww , Everything happens for a reason love. You have more time to gain weight & you got a chance to choose Duran who will give you a big juicy booty lol !!!! These next 5 months are gonna go by so fast !!!! Then you'll be looking like a rican yaris sanchez lol ;)

Does anyone know what type of breast implants Dr.Duran uses?

There are only 3 brands of breast implants that are approved by the U.S. FDA. Those brands are Allergan , Mentor , & Sientra. For all you Duran vets : Does anyone know which brand Dr.Duran uses? Did you get to choose between High profile or moderate profile ? And do you know if she will allow you to choose between placing the implant over or under the muscle ? I'm going to ask her all of these questions but I'm still waiting for her response to the email I sent to her on Saturday .

** Side Note: Dr.Baez offers 4 different types of breast implants & depending on which one you pick , you will be priced accordingly . She offers Mentor, Eurosilicone, Motiva and Donasis. Keep in mind that Mentor is the only one that is approved in the U.S.


I cant wait for,u to go to duran because most of the girls that go to her her dont come back so we can see there result and as i can see ull be updating us all the time and we will apprichiate it im pretty sure ur going to look gone wit the wind fabulous.

Thank u Hunnie .. I'm like the wind baby " lmfaooo ..I'm definately gonna update every single step of the way . I felt like I'd be doing u guys a disservice if I didn't . Knowledge is power & frankly is be lost if it weren't for vets like LolaJae . 
Ur welcome sweetie im soo happy for .u so how much weight do u have to gain? I know u are excited but when u least expected ull


I just found out that Dr.Cabral uses Eurosilicone implants . Dr.Baez also offers this brand as an option , but this brand is not approved by the U.S. FDA. I'm still waiting on Dr.Durans response . Ill updat as soon as I find out.

Breast implant info !!

I am Puerto Rican so by nature I am a very nosey person , lol . But hey knowledge is power , so i guess its a good thing . I continue to get quotes from other Doctors just to find out what these doctors are offering not only price wise but also all the extras , free airport pickup , included messages , etc.. Just so I can accurately make an informed Decision . I like to be able to weigh my options . I like to be an informed consumer .

**When I received my initial quote from Baez in June , I was quoted $3000 with lipo to arms, abdomen, waist, back, flanks, thighs and BBL (butt and hips) . This included 10 lymphatic messages ... I received an updated quote from her and it is $2700 for lipo to abdomen, waist, back, flanks, & Brazilian butt lift . ... She no longer includes the lymphatic messages but if you go to her person it will be $300 for 10 messages ...& she doesn't include arms & armpits , they will be an additional $300 as well . I asked her for the price of breast implants & as I said before she gives you the option to choose between Mentor , Eurosilicone, Donasis , & Motiva . I asked her for the price of the Mentor implants ( these are the only implants from the choices above that are approved from the U.S FDA & they come with a limited lifetime warranty , if they rupture or break !!) , she said my total would be $4600 .. This is $900 less than Duran & Cabrals quote ($5500). Yily quoted me $3450 with Lipo to arms , abdomen , back , flanks & an additional $1700 for breast implants :; total $5150 ..

Cabral uses Eurosilicone implants , these are made in France . And they do come with a lifetime warranty , but for those of us who live in the U.S I'm not exactly sure how we would get them replaced because our Doctors in the U.S do not use this brand of implants .. I am still waiting to find out what brand Duran uses ..

The Donassis implants are made in Japan . And the Motiva brand is made in Costa Rica . ..

I hope Duran uses Mentor Allergan , or Sientra implants ( these are the only brands of implants that are approved for use in the U.S ) .. There are also warranty cards that you should receive when you get breast implants but I don't think the warranties are valid if the implants are not put in the U.S :( ..

**I will update you ladies as soon as I find out what brand Dr.Duran uses . ..


Baez's quotes are so much cheaper than yily/duran. Communication is better too. i would make her my surgeon in a heartbeat but I don't think she gives really big booties :( well based on her post op pics. They all sculpt so well no doubt but . I really want a phatty. But I understand totally about weighing your options. B/c to be honest sometimes I still think about having yily as my doctor again even thought about cabral lol I'm soooo indecisive !!!
  • Reply
I am definitely staying with Duran . I'm just curious about what other doctors are including In their quotes. Four months is a long time , anything can happen , Duran could just get up & quit & then I'd be left with no options & no clue on what other doctors are available & what they have to offer . I'd rather be safe then sorry . I just wanna be prepared just in case Duran is not available for any reason . 

Sent deposit to Real Recovery House

I sent my deposit to Real Recovery Armonia for my cousin @CurvyKae & myself ,a few days ago thru Western Union & I just spoke to Mayra & she confirms that she did receive it . Mayra does always charge a deposit but in my case , maybe cuz there's 2 of us . Anywho , it was only $20 . But I'm glad I did because now I have my emails between Mayra & I ,as well as my receipt from Western Union confirming that I did in fact send the requested deposit money to Mayra. .. My cousin & I might end up staying at her aunt's (who is a nurse)house in D.R. , but we are not sure if that's the route we want to take . If we do go that route we'd be saving my uncle a wholeee lotta money , cuz were going from $2100 to free . We're still undecisive but we have our dates locked in with Real Recovery , just in case !!!


I can most definitely relate to your indecisiveness!! I was tempted by Baez quote and her speedy communication but what if I don't get the results I want? Therefore I avoid myself the headache and stick to Duran lol

Response from Duran about implants

In my August 21, & 22 updates , I wrote about different brands of implants & where these implants can be placed . I got a response from Drs Cabral & Baez & I was waiting for Dr.Duran's response . I guess today is her email & Whatsapp day because she responded:

***She said ::The brands we use are eurosilicona, SILIMED, Donasid, among other.
Implants placed them in any plane either subglandular or subfascial retromuscular but this plane as determined depending on the case and choose the one that suits you most, remember that each case is unique and what could be good for one may be bad for other... ***

Yay!!!Silimed (made by Sientra)is approved by the U.S. FDA & they do come with a warranty , but I don't think we are entitled to any warranties because the implants are not going to be done in the u.s. :(

Dr.Duran said "Among others " not sure what other brands she uses . But I did write back to her and ask if she uses Mentor or Allergan implants . And if she uses high profile as well as moderate profile implants . I will update as soon as I get an answer !! Stayed tuned Dolls.. :)


Hey doll at what time did you contact the office and they picked up ? I'm using a calling card so I don't want to run up minutes for no reason lol
  • Reply
Yeah please tell .. And what did u say when u called .. Because when I spoke to who ever answered she was like the doctor is in surgery and she checks her email on Fridays and to call back Monday (didn't help me at all and didn't make sense on why she couldn't just help me right there)
I call between 11:00& 3:00 . I told her I received my quote & I wanted to schedule my appointment . I spoke to Elizabeth & she was semi-helpful lol. I continued to speak with Duran through email . She finally responded to me via Whatsapp today .

Gained another pound!!

I'm now 151 lbs . I'm so exciteddd , eating alot has now become so much easier . I guess my stomach is getting used to being full . I am still keeping up with my 4 ensures a day regimen.. I'm so happy ! I only have 5 more pounds to go , as per Dr.Duran I needed to gain no more than 10lbs, when I emailed her I was 146, so I should be about 156 on the day of surgery . But I might try to get up to 160 !! I want to make sure she has enough fat to make my booty look right !!

The warranties for American made implants are only valid if the implants were placed in the U.S & Puerto Rico .
No she had procedure 2 years ago and Her doctor just gave her a unknown implant . It got ruptured and she had to go to Cordero to get a change she choose Silmed which she is much happier with . I figured something wasn't right ,so like you I started my research and looking up with FDA approved Or not . That's when I emailed Baez and asked her about implant choices she stated silimed and mentor are additional cost. My friend live in DR she met BAEZ on Monday. I was told the clinic was old and run down, no ac and looks like a hep motel . They also have a maternity ward there , she said she could operate at cilpa which is more updated and clean for an additional $300 plus she only has 5 year experience. So while her price is cheap . I had to switch to a professional . My life is worth more than a few hundred dollars. I think I will choose mentor brand with Cordero god forbid something happen I can't fly to DR a surgeon here can replace it . I mailed mentor and the give you money towards futue surgery.

More Boobie Talk !

After receiving my quote from Dr.Baez as I stated August 21st update , I realized that there were different types of implants as well as different brands , this caused me to go ahead and do extensive research on breast implants and I found that there are only 3 brands approved by the U.S. FDA , and I also learned that there are Saline filled implants , Silicone implants & gummy bear implants ... There are alot of different "profiles" , as well , ranging from low to ultra high profile.. Not only are there different profiles there are also different textures "Lord Jesus there's a fire" I know -__-. In addition to finding out all those useful pieces of information , I also researched the different brands that Dr.Baez offers . Dr.Baez offers 4 different brands of implants , only one of which are approved by the U.S. FDA . She states in her quote that depending on which brand you pick the price varies . Ladies please make sure you are aware of doctors that are charging more for different brands of implants . After speaking to CorderoBarbie , I realized that some people are not aware that different brands of implants cost more & at times we may be blindsided by the options we have as well as a possible hidden price increase in our quotes due to getting us wanting better quality materials . I would hate to go to have surgery and then be given options and then have to shell out more money that expected . So I bring this info to you ladies wholeheartedly in order to avoid any unwanted surprises .

In exactly 4 months my buddies MsBooty & CurvyKae will touch down on Dominican Soil !!! I hope this time flyssssss !! So exciteddd!!!


The gummy bear implants sound like the truth tho
  • Reply
I'm a little affraid of them because they are soooo adhesive . I saw a video showing the actually consistency of the gel in Gummy Bear implants & they are extremely sticking . I know they are supposed to stay inside the implant but I'd hate for that to be stuck on my insides . They're supposed to keep the the shape of the implant shell even if they rupture but then again the TITANIC was supposed to be unsinkable . If I find the video I will post it for u . 
also in the video you posted the guy said they can shift if special care is not taken.I think id like gummy bear but in the traditional round shape not the tear drop. I would hate for one to shift and one headlight faces north. haha!

Dr.Duran's twitter update

I don't have twitter . So my cousin sent me this screenshot from Dr.Durans twitter, I thought I'd share with any if u ladies that don't do the social networking , like me .
She said its important to have your BMI under 35 because if you are overweight , she may not be able to do your surgery . & she also said that ur hemo should be 12 or over . She doesnt want anyone to waste their time and money & not be able to have surgery . And she doesnt want those of us who can't have surgery due to health issues , give her a bad review . We have to be on point ladies !


Love that she made such a beautiful point. Like you n I and old to of pre op dolls suggested.. Always smarter to be healthy b4 adding trauma to body .. I def wanna check my bmi this month to make sure I'm straight.. Glad u gaining nj ;) #teambiggirl

Achievable Wish Pic !!

Ladies!!! I found out that Keyshia Ka'oir is the exact same height (5'6") as me & she is my normal weight (135) . I am currently 152 due to purposely gaining weight for surgery, I need some fat so Duran can give me a chonkyyy. I'm gonna use her as my realistic wish pic . I think her body is niceee & I think Dr.Duran can definitely help me achieve this look . I would like a little bit rounder hips & hey if I can get more ASS, then that would be a plus (booty greed) . But I'd be happy if I can at least achieve this look !!

Thank u !!! (Fingers crossed)

I spoke to Dr.Duran today !!Breast implant info updated ..

Soooo ... I got the info we've all been waiting for ... DRUMROLL pleaseeeee...

I spoke to Dr.Duran around 6:00 pm today & she said only uses Very High Profile Cohesive Silicone Gel Implants .

**sidenote for those of you who want to know : "What ‘profile’ is "

This is the ‘projection’ of the implant – so how far it will stand out. We make a variety of different profiles to fit different women and the looks they want to achieve. High and extra high are the largest, while medium and low are more subtle.**

Back to our regularly scheduled program : Dr.Duran uses the Eurosilicone , among Donasis , & silimed brands . As I have stated in one of my previous posts , Silimed is approved by the U.S. FDA but we will not be entitled to the warranty because the implants are not being implanted in the U.S. .. Sadly she does not use Mentor or Allergan {U.S made} implants ... I guess it is what it is .. On the contrary Eurosilicone is an extremely well established breast implant company based out of France. And these implants are used all over the World E X C E P T for the U.S. And We will automatically be entitled to & enrolled in the warranty program !!!

The Warranty :

GCA Comfort Guarantee
1. Automatic enrollment upon implantation - free of charge. GCA Comfort Guarantee applies to all recipients of Eurosilicone silicone-filled breast implants.
2. Silicone-filled breast implants are covered.
GCA Comfort Guarantee automatically applies to all Eurosilicone silicone-filled breast implants:
• Implanted after January 1, 2009. • Implanted in strict accordance with
Eurosilicone instructions for use as
per product package insert.
• Implanted by an appropriately
qualified and licensed surgeon in accordance with accepted surgical procedures and techniques.
3. Lifetime Warranty against rupture of the implant or severe capsular contracture:
• In the event of internal rupture
of the implant due to loss of
shell integrity.
• In the event of severe capsular
contracture. Severe capsular contracture is defined with the Baker Clinical Grading Scale as Grade III and IV.
GCA Comfort Guarantee will replace free of charge the concerned Eurosilicone implant for the lifetime of the implant.
4. Replacement of the implant
in any model, size or style.* Following the request and recommendation of your surgeon, your current Eurosilicone breast implant may be replaced by any model, size or style.
5. Replacement of the contralateral implant in case of internal rupture.
At the request and recommendation of your surgeon, GCA Comfort Guarantee will replace free of charge the contralateral breast implant in case of internal rupture of the implant due to loss of shell integrity.
6. Automatic and free of charge renewal of GCA Comfort Guarantee enrollment.
After revision surgery, GCA Comfort Guarantee will continue to apply to all recipients of Eurosilicone silicone- filled breast implants automatically and at no charge.
7. Events not covered:
• Removal of Eurosilicone
breast implant due to patient dissatisfaction with either size alteration or aesthetic result.
• Adverse events other than implant deflation or rupture.
• Adverse reactions other than severe capsular contracture.
• Loss of shell integrity caused by operative procedures.
• Loss of shell integrity due to open or closed capsulotomy.
• Custom made implants.
• Non catalogue silicone-filled
breast implants.
• Cost related to intervention surgery.
*Eurosilicone may apply a charge on products with a higher price.

PLACEMENT : As I stated in my August 25th update . Duran uses subglangular, subfascial & retromuscular (subpectoral) placement for the implants . After examining your breasts she will decide which placement is best for you . And I quote with English translation of course "..... this plane is determined depending on the case and choose the one that suits you most , remember that each case is unique and what could be good for one may be bad for other."... I for one am hoping for retromuscular placement because the implant will be hidden better because I have small breasts & thinner skin than someone with bigger breasts . Also doctors will be able check for breast cancer because the implant will not be in the way ... Xoxo til next time

Email from Eurosilicone !

I emailed Eurosilicone last night to get all pertinent info on the warranty & they email me back this morning !! Here goes :

Dear Madam,

Thank you very much for contacting us.

Our warranty applies to all patients wearing Eurosilicone implants, wherever they are operated, wherever they live.
So I confirm that if you get operated in Dominican Republic and then go back to the US, our warranty will still be valid.

Our warranty covers your implants in case of internal rupture and severe cases of capsular contracture. If any of these issues occur, it is likely that you will need to be reoperated.
If our claim form is properly filled in by the surgeon and if you get new Eurosilicone implants instead, you will be entitled to get implants free of charge. However, we usually go through our distributors for this procedure.
This means that we will send implants free of charge to our local distributor in Dominican Republic, which in turn will provide these implants to your surgeon.

We will not be able to send implants free of charge to the US as we are not allowed to ship our products there.

When you get operated, your surgeon will have to give you a patient card with your name and operation date on it, along with stickers of the implants you are wearing (indicating their reference, size, serial numbers and lot numbers).
This card is important, you must keep it safe. You will not have a warranty card, but the fact that you are wearing Eurosilicone implants will be enough, our warranty will apply automatically.

I hope this information will be helpful, please do not hesitate to contact us again if you have more questions.

Thank you
Best regards


I seriously get all my info from you. You have all the answers. your like the real self genie. rub the lamp and out pops NJexcitedd with the answer.

Looking for a flight buddy from D.R. To JFK or EWR on Jan 12,13,14,or 15}

Hey ladies , Im Looking for a flight buddy from D.R. To either JFK OR SDQ .. My cousin is going to stay in D.R. For 15 to 21 days . I was gonna stay for 2 weeks , which would bring me to the 17th of January but school starts on the 13th , I really didn't mind having to miss the first few days of school . But I'm going to miss my babies & husband wayyyy too much . I think the emotional stress from missing my fam(ily) will deter my progress & recovery . So I will be flying home from D.R. By myself , I've never flown alone & I don't want to be the only weirdo who is in pain on the plane , lol. So I'm wondering if there is anyone who is in the same situation or if there is anyone flying back from D.R. On January 12-15th .. PM ME :)


Do you know if its true once you gain weight will have to maintain it in order not to loose volume?
  • Reply
I have heard that before but I know that there are ladies that lost weight after sx and they still maintained their volume , I can't remember any names off the top of my head but if I come across their review , I will definately let u know ... & I know some people who have lost volume simply because all their fat cells didn't survive without even having weight loss... I plan to maintain my weight that I get to after Duran sucks all this garbage out of me lol ... As long as Trina the Talking Tummy is gone , ill be good ... Everyone's outcome is different , but I say don't gain 30 pounds for surgery if ur not comfortable at that weight . I'm pretty comfortable with this weight , I just wanna say r.i.p to Trina !!!
Lol I feel ya good luck cant wait to see your out come. Although I paid Dr Salama partner ghurani a dep im still considering Dr. DURAN her results are Phenomenal!!!

Updated Measurements & Trina the Talking Tummy

Hey chicas ... I decided to take my measurements today :; the last time I took them was July 18th ..

I was 144.2 pounds
Bust: 37 1/2
Waist: 31
Hips: 39 1/2

Today I am 155 pounds
Bust :40
Waist : 35
Hips: 41 1/2

Whoa!!! I'm shocked that I was able to put on 11 pounds in less than 2 months :; ( but I really started going hard to gain the weight on August 8th before that I was just passive about the weight gain , I hadn't began forcing myself to eat like a cow or drinking my 4 daily ensures or my husbands oatmeal & pound cake concoction)...

I'm going to post pictures of "TRINA the Talking Tummy" .. Ughhh my body is something else right now .. RUN FOR COVERRRRR!! ...

These 5 pounds aren't gonna gain themselves

Hey Ladies ... I have 5 pounds to go so I needed to pack my fridge & cabinets to the max so I can readily have food available . Trina gets pretty angry when she doesn't eat , even though she is always stuffed !! Yesterday she attempted to eat my 7 year old , this heffa said "Get back in my Bellaaayyyyy"... I was like "WHOAAAAA NELLY, calm down Big momma" she got mad cuz She thought I called her Nelly , can u believe it ? I was like calm down Trina , it's just a saying ... She mumbled & grumbled a little bit but after stuffing more food into her , she settled down .. "Wheeeewwww that was a close call" , she had me over here sweatin' .... She has a mind of her own !!!

*disclaimer: my belly did not really attempt to eat my child , nor does she talk .. She does although have feelings & that feeling is hungerrrr.... Ive gained 12 pounds since I began my journey in June . I really began gaining weight in July .. Most of my weight gain & (i.e my 4 daily endures & forced eating began in August ) .. So id say Im doing good!!!
This is just a little humor for u ladies .. I am not cray cray & I know my Tummy does not talk , lol ... Thanks for reading !!!

Patiently waiting .... NOTTTTT

I'm currently sitting in the waiting room of my Gyno's office , extremely bored beyond belief!!! My appt was for 1:00 & it's now 1:54 & I'm still waitingggg. It never takes this damn long , but I know first hand how doctors offices schedule appointments right after another , hell I used to schedule patients every 15 minutes at my office , knowing damn well some patients are as slow as molasses while filling out paperwork , GRRRR .. & other neglected their eyes so badly so the doctor would have to examine them for much longer & then we'd have to run more tests , ugh ... So I guess that hooker that was scheduled before me has some kind of cottage cheese growing out of her vagina, therefore MY doctor cannot attend to me & my bloodwork ..YIKESSSS , I'm anxious to find out what my hemo is (I know I don't get the results today , but I'd like to get the ball rolling )& this cottage cheese having woman of the nite is crampin my style ... And while I am venting , I must say that while I'm in class or driving , I get 1 million 5 hundred 63 thousand 9 hundred and 84 notifications from RealSelf but now that I need some good reading materials , no one is Posting .. WAHHHHHHHHHHHHH WAHHHHHHHHHHHHH
WAHHHHHHHHHHHHH .... Oh BTW I forgot to mention that I have not slept since I woke up yesterday @ 6:30 am on 9/18/2013 ... I had 2 papers due & of course I procrastinated , silly me , BLAHHHHHH... Wait here it goes again , WAHHHHHHHHH WAHHHHHHH WAHHHHHH ...

That card is all we need to get replacement implants for free , just in case they rupture or break . We have to get them replaced at Dr.Durans office of course , but hey at least we get a warranty .. !!!

I insulted her too much over the yrs!Alls she does is smirk at me!(Don't know what I'm talking about,have a look at her pic.)Any-who, she knows where she's going!Skin & all in some kind of medical waste thing-a-ma bobber or wherever.Ya know what?That sounds kinda sad now that I'm thinking.Uh,nope that only lasted a second lmbo!

Ughhh the Joy . 2nd doctors appt in a week :( blahhhhh .... I'm trying to make sure everything is a goooo for surgery !!! my appt was for 1:30 , & I just got into my car @4:48 UGHHHHHHH... I had a cardiologist appt today ($150 visit , but some heffa quoted me $50 over the phone , I have no insurance ;( so I regulated on the manager, in a professional & nice way , I've been a medical office manager for over 7 years , I know how it goes & I only paid the $50 that was quoted to me over the phone , POWWWWW) to see if I get clearance for sx because I have a heart murmur .. I got an echocardiogram (which was $350) & an EKG ($15) done ... My EKG result was normal , but I have low pressure & the Doc thinks I'm nearing dehydration .. She asked me if I drink water -_- , lmfaoooo the answer is NO!!! I hateeee water blahhhhh , it's so bland ... I know I know water is essential to our bodies , especially before surgery .. so my husband is forcing me to drink at least a bottle a day to begin my daily water regime .. @TiffanyCupcakes22 , don't kill me , I know I promised u 2 days ago to start drinking water but I forgot to get a lemon & pineapples for the flavored water recipe u gave me ... Tomorrow it's on !!! I'm gonna slow down on my delicious refreshing soda regime , WAAAAHHHHHH, ( ugh I love the "kick" soda gives me in my throat ) yeah sick I know , I'm obsesseddddd with soda ...

Hemo Results!!!

I just got my hemoglobin results !!! My hemo is 13.9 , which means , if I recall correctly in d.r. It's gonna be like 11.9 ... {ladies please correct me if I'm wrong } Soooo I'm gonna order the blood builder from Amazon , I'm not taking any chances ...


I'm on that blood builder now for the past month or so.. U should be good money.. In regards to the hemo count in dr, I've heard it was 1 pt under us count (not even sure if true or why that is ) but go 4 it boo! I gotta get on my breast implant card ish! I have my clearance / 2nd physical in 2 weeks so hopefully blood builder works. I was 13.1 last month

Cleared for Surgery by my Cardiologist

So my cardiologist just called and said I'm all good to go for surgery !!!!!! I'm soooooooo EXCITEDDD;) and I finally got over my 155 hump , I'm 156.2 pounds now . I'm not sure if I'm gonna go for the 170 , I decided on or just get up to 165. I'll see how Trina handles the weight. I feel like a tub o lard .& when my husband & I are doing the BOW CHICKA WOW WOW, I see all my lusciousness shakin & bakin, I try to hold Trina so she doesn't create an earthquake but there is no stopping all this lovin.. I am very conscious about my extra weight & I just hope I can continue to gain my desired weight without getting so self-conscious & upset ... I wanted donations for my cheecho box & I got em!!! I am going to continue to think positive about gaining weight because just like any "donation" :; it's for a damn good cause !!!


i am a hairstylist and men tell the truth in my chair. its like a truth serum chair. I dont do many men now since i am prebooked by appt only and men do not like to wait but in my 20 plus years doing hair the men have all said the same thing.... they like girls with some softness and meat on there bones. period. the skinny models get the hollywood stars, but that truly is only for bragging rights and to make themselves look better. the ones they really want are the soft slightly squishy ones. i have always loved the actors that have the squishy wives on there arms shout out to the real men actors feel free to add to the list. pierce brosnan samuel L jackson denzel washington clive owen hugh jackman I totally respect these guys for being honest good men.

Doctor Duran's work is on Media

Ladies if she's popular now , imagine how crazy hectic her schedule will be when people more find out that she's doing work like this ... For those of us that have scheduled dates already, YAYYYYY, & for those of you who don't , get a date ASAP , she's already booked for months in advance now , imagine when the world gets a peek at this ... DURAN IN FULL EFFECT !!!

**I sent Dra.Duran the pic & I translated it for her , I also sent her pics of Paula Patton & Deelishis :; her little cute self will be so happy when she sees it :)



Hahaha , my husband loves the extra weight , my mom is like of course he wants u to be fat , lmfaoooo... 

More supplies

I only got a few more things cuz I went to Rite Aid & stuff is soooo expensive there & I get 20% off everything because of my rewards card but still everything costs more in Rite Aid than Walmart , my baller husband is like "so what just get it , just put whatever u want in the cart" OH HELL NO!! , that was something I would do before , but now with my old age (26 mind you) I'm a bargain shopper .. I don't go O.D. With the bargain shopping but shittt sometimes my grandma kicks in & I gotta be smart .. Anywayz I got

** 24 ct Diurex max (caffeine free) water pills,
**100 caplets of Extra Strength Tylenol
**Neosporin maximum strength Pain+Relief ointment
** 14 tabs Prilosec OTC ...

If anyone would like I made a complete list compiled of everything I've seen on many different sisters list of stuff that's needed or recommended for surgery , some people say you don't need everything but I'd rather decide that for myself cuz hey you never know, everyone's recovery is different & I'd rather be safe then sorry .. It's not like the stuff will go to waste ... So if any of you ladies would like me to email you the list let me know :)


What email address did you use to contact Dr. Duran?
  • Reply ... You have to be persistent & try to email her on FB & write to her on IG as well .. She usually answers on Sundays , after you email her u can calm her office and have her asst . Pull ur email and she will Give it to Duran .. Some people wait weeks to hear back from her but she's a very busy woman and she's worth it !!! Good luck 
Thank you so much....

My buddies & I sent our deposits to Dominga !!! I already sent a deposit to Mayra at Real Recovery , but I think I'm gonna stick with Dominga ... She has an AMAZING surgery package , for each of my buddies it's $570 for 10 days , for transportation , 3 meals a day , nurse , 6 messages , drainage , & cleaning of fajas ... That price is AMAZING & her house is beautiful, she even has a pool & her reviews are excellent !!! My buddies & I rented her whole house , so there are no outsiders / tourists !! 2 1/2 months to go & were almost completely ready !!! YAY US !!!


Hey NJ, do you plan on keeping on your belly while laying down? If so I just found a body pillow with a hole for boobs after augmentation! Looks pretty awesome! Let me know & I'll post the pic & info on my review for you & others;)
  • Reply
I just went ahead & put it on my review anyway. Who knows, It may help someone who runs across it;)
It's not recommended to lay on the boobs at all , but I do plan on getting the Descansa breast pillow (just in case I can't deal with it anymore :; I always sleep in my stomach :(, I'm not sure if this is the one u found. But if u found a good one let me know , I'll check it out ..

Breast pillows

It's not recommended that we sleep on our breast at all after breast augmentation , but I sleep on my stomach (religiously ) & I know I'm gonna be extremely uncomfortable , so I'm going to get the breast pillow and prop the rest of my body up on pillows as well to see if the breast pillow will work ;) ... ELLI890 one of my fav R.S. Sisters let me know about comfy pillow , it's also a breast pillow , I might try that one out as well ... I've posted pics of both .. Thanks so much ELLI890


And also what is the contact or website for the Dominga house ?
  • Reply
Is this it here ?
Yes that is one of her rooms , that is Giulias room . I posted the link for Johns room , John's room is bigger & it has it's own private bathroom !!! There is another small bedroom & also "The loft"..

Girl how lond did you wait for Duran to respond to your email? I am so depressed she's not responding and its been a month now :( ppl say she responds quicker on whatsapp whats the number she uses on whatsapp? Please anyone help i need to finish what i started :)
  • Reply
I emailed her a few months ago , she got back to me quickly . Now she is much busier , you should call her office and ask her assistant to pull ur email and then Duram will get back to you . I just had her do it for my surgery buddy , we got a response the same night . This is the office number 1 (809) 565-5348. And this is her Whatsapp #(809) 707-7163   . Also try to contact her on her FB email . 
It only took 48 hrs for her to email me and Ive been in touch with her ever since. Inbox you with contact

Solution to Sleeping on our phatties :; post-op

Look ladies !! Finally a solution .. It's called a Holo-Lilo , it's an air mattress with a hole in it . It was made for pregnant women but we can use it for our butts !!!! It's from the UK & It sells on Amazon for only $35.99 gbp which is $59 usd!!! It is a must have !!! I think I'm gonna bring it with me to D.R. !! I'm not taking any chances !!! Thanks CurvyKae :)


NJ! That is a friggin awesome find! Would be so easy to travel with unlike a big foam cut out. I guess the only downside may be it's not customizable. Hey you know what? Pretty much anything can be customized if we put our minds to it though. Do you know how thick it is?
  • Reply
The dimensions are 185 x 65 x 18cm (max 21cm at hole), hole diameter is approx 30cm. The holo in its box weighs approx 1.5kg
I'm gonna find a way to make it work , lol

Compression Socks

Vambie please let me know if these are similar to the ones Duran gives . Also do u think I should get one set of 30-40 compression & one set of 20-30 compression or just get both with high compression ? Thanks love


Girl ur so informative I love reading ur blogs . Thanks and hey by the way hows ur cousin doing didnt she get her surgery done already.
