Ready to Be a Almonte Doll!! :-) - Dominican Republic

I have been lurking on this site for months. I...

I have been lurking on this site for months. I learned so much from all of these amazing ladies on here and I am so ready to take the plunge and get surgery done. I'm specifically only interested in getting my sx done in DR because 1) skill of the doctors 2) they understand the aesthetic women are looking for and 3) bang for $$$. Just a bit about me: I'm 30 years old from NYC, no children, never pregnant. I'm planning on getting Liposculpture- full back, full abdomen, flanks, waist, underarm area +Lipo to thighs. My trouble areas have always been my arms and inner thighs. no matter how much I work out, they never seem to get the look I want them to have. All in all, I just want to look natural but have an enhancement to my current curviness and get a tiny, snatched waist. I'm definitely interested in aggressive liposculpture so I began my search for looking for the best dr. for me. I narrowed it down to Dr. Duran and Dr. Almonte. By now, Dr. Duran is a Liposculpture legend. The Instagram girls I've seen that have gone to her and her day to day clients all look beyond amazing. She is very skilled with all body types and can give you that vixen look. My issue with her is her lack of availability/communication, I couldn't get through to her. Plus I know she works everyday, 5-7 patients a day. For such serious surgery, I need a doctor who is accessible. I continued my search and came across Dr. Almonte. Her assistant Lesley is the best! Easy to contact, either via e-mail or Whatsapp, sweet, understanding, knowledgable and fluent in English! It took me a day to get a complete quote from her and the price of $4300 includes a 10 day stay at a recovery house, and the dr. is affiliated with a few. I saw photos of her work and I was impressed. I also love the fact that she only works three days a week and takes 3 patients a day. I'm sold. So deposit is ready, date has been chosen and I'm on my way.

Deposit sent... It's getting real!

I sent my deposit today. Gave Lesley a call to let her know that to check the bank account for my transfer. Now it feels super official. I am beyond excited, February can't come soon enough. I'm calling my Dr. today to schedule a blood test and check on my iron level. I have to know what I am working with. In Lesley's e-mail, she said that the iron level need to be at least a 13. I am not worried though. If my iron isn't t where it needs to be, I have 6 months from now until my sx to get it together.

SX Buddy Wanted

Hey Dolls! I booked my flight today! I spoke with Lesley earlier this week and changed the date of my surgery from February 18th to February 16th so I am flying from NYC on February 14th. I am taking a late flight which will get me to DR at 12:00 midnight. If anyone is planning on going to having their surgery around the time I am going, please message me and let me know. I would love to have a buddy so we can keep each other company and be there for moral support.

Check In

Hi Dolls,

I honestly don't have much to update. I've done everything I need to do to at this point to secure my sx. My time off has been approved at work, I sent my deposit, used a flight credit I had before it expired so my plane ticket is booked. I'm just taking my vitamins every day (Vit. C, Folic Acid and Iron) and just going along with my everyday routine. I do plan on juicing at some point myself but a couple of times a week, I go to a juice bar on my way to work to pick up a smoothie to build my blood. In a week or so I'm planning on taking my first blood test. A month before the sx, I'll take another but honestly, I don't think I'll have an issue with my iron levels. I have been continuing to look at other ladies bodies to get an idea of what I want. As started in my first post, I really just want an enhancement of my current shape. I'm already curvy but the tummy, thighs and arms could use improvements. I love how some video models looks but some look too "done" if you know what I mean. That's not my goal. I want a natural look but snatched-waist tiny and everything else proportional. Im not including current photos of myself yet, I want to post before and after shots so I'll wait for that. I am including photos of looks I admire.

Good luck with everything- keep us posted!  A few girls have said they've had low iron and were able to get their levels up with various over the counter supplements- this Q&A might help:

No prob!  You might want to connect with cityofpretty, she just went through getting her iron levels/hemoglobin levels up before her surgery and was able to do it.  You can click that link to go to her profile page- her review (click here) has lots of info about it.
