Hello to you all!..i have been a member for a year...

Hello to you all!..i have been a member for a year and after just months and some years of debating..i am (i thank lol) ready to get a BBL. i have a butt but its not round like i want it to be..my butt looks like...forget it..ill just post pics..then to top it off, I got side swiped by a car in 2008 (hit) and so it left a dent and i believe it also did some muscle damage on my right cheek..(ill post a pic to show as well)..i never tried to accept it and quite frankly i just dont like it. I hope to gather knowledge still and book an appt. (Yily De Los Santos, MD

....or maybe

Yeah i have been non stop shop looking for theeee perfect doctor to get me right..and i think i might change it to Dr. Duran....shoo...i wanna be a fun size doll whilst you at it lol.

Finding the right doctor...

I am on the thicker side and i want to know which doctor would be perfect for that frame. Im 5 foot 1 and right now i weight 184 my normal approx. weight is like 165 (i just had a baby 2 months ago). Anyway, can someone help me with that...it can be the states or the DR...(P.S) im not sure if i wanna post pics on here of me because if i were to google my email or my username google just might filter those bad body pics of me from this site...so im iffy on that..lol...

Friend button maybe??!

RS needs to go ahead and give in....add a "friend button" lol...im over here favoring profiles haha

The waiting game...

I am now waiting on the quotes from Dr. Cortes and Salama...im trying to see whose quote is reasonable and such. Nice quick responses....still havent even heard from Dr. Yily...this is why i had to start searching outside the popular box.

4 months away!

im going to go ahead and put that money down tomorrow..id rather stay close by than travel to a foreign country..


Deposit down...!!! This January 2014 ill be walking out with the same mind but with a different body!


I at least hope for some close results..

**HOUSTON** !!

11-12-13 is my body date..I'm ready!!

Now im nervous smh....

I understand that there are good and bad outcomes. Im just going to leave it in Gods hands..what else can i do?...i want to also see if i can perhaps see if i can have help paying for this procedure..anyone know of any good finance health companies that are good to help? Thank you for taking your time out to respond if you do :-)

The wait..

Again! !!!????

I just had a baby 3 months ago....I DREAD epidurals.... you mean I have to get
a-nuh-vuh one.!!!!!!???

Actually, Real Self has a shopping list of things to buy. Go to the "forum" and it's a few posts down. You'll see something called BBL preparation guide. I'll be happy to help if you need anything else!

No worries if you don't have anything, the stuff you need is fairly easy to come by. Your Dr should provide a prescription for post op meds like percocet/oxycodone for pain, phenergan for nausea, a muscle relaxer etc. OTC meds you should probably buy: ibuprofen, arnica tablets, stool softener, neosporin ointment, benadryl anti-itch (a lot of girls say they itch really bad post op but you may not have this problem), medicated scarring gel like Kelo Cote or Biocorneum, pineapples/pineapple juice (not considered meds but helps slow blood clotting). Don't forget knee high compression stockings.

Thanks...LOL I kno I'm not the reviewer but this list is real helpful.

Make sure you have a compression garment if your surgeon doesn't provide one. Boppy pillow, scar gel, post op meds, loose clothing like maxi dresses and tank tops, epifoam, female urinal, chux pads, bromelain for scars....those are the important things I thought of off the top of my head. I know I'm late so you may have already gotten everything. But my surgery is 2 days after yours, I'm so excited but starting to get nervous. Good luck!
