I am 29yrs old 1 child 5'6 167 lbs
I have in interested in the BBL since about 4 or 5 years ago. I have a family member who went to an island off Venezuela to have implants and I was interested but never liked the idea of implants or butt shots so I started doing my own research. Originally I had my quote about 2 years ago with Dr. J but he became too rich for my blood although his work is uffff outstanding, my fiancee was amazedddd and hes against this lol. Anyway I really wanted to finance since I do not want the added stress of having to penny pinch and save on my own so I never considered leaving the country until I heard about Dr. Yily De Los Santos. Im Dominican and had an aunt die and a cousin almost die both during surgery so I was completely against it. I have a another aunt who went to Dr. Tajah and he is amazing but he couldnt give me what I want so I think I will be taking the first step and getting my quote from Yily!
would like to have my new body by nxt summer so we'll see!! love this site! good look to all you ladies out here! kissessss
Merry Christmas ladies!! Blessings to all of you...

He has 2 boys from a previous marriage, I have 1 girl and now he's saying he wants a child. My thing is do you know of anyone who has had kids after a procedure like this???? He says I can wait another year or two but im turning 30 in a few months!! 1. I dont want to be 30 something and pregnant and 2. I want my body NOW like right NOW if I had the money!! Its not fair......I want lipo only no tt and the fat transfer do you ladies think its ok to have kids after this procedure???
Pleaseeee any thoughts will be appreciated!!
Happy New Years ladiessss. Hope you all had an...

Now.....My fiancee has been getting on my nerves lately about not giving me any money towards my surgery...big woop I'll pay for this on my own and when he goes to grab my new ass or small waist I'll charge him a fee!!! What I have decided to do is join a "sociedad" lol I dont know what you call it in english but basically a group of ppl get together, everyone has a number and you pay a set amount per week until the end and when your number comes up you get paid. Its a way to save money for those that have trouble doing so.
Anyway I'm going to do that to finance my surgery. I hope I get a low number so I can just get it done early and just pay it off. I'll add the pics I sent to Yily later lol they'll be my Trick or Treat to you guys!! :P
Sorry ladiessss during my rant I didnt realize I...
- 3 Jan 2013
Problem is I showed my mom Yily website and my previous choice Dr J website and now my mom wants me to go to Dr J............I dont know what to do because the price difference is sooooo high its ridiculous. She says its best to wait and save and get something that looks soo much better and she's scared for me to go to DR but idk. She couldnt believe her eyes when she saw Dr J's curves lol. I must say he is amazing but I'm kinda skeptical of the volume he achieves. I would like to look at patients at least a year post op. I may email him and ask for more info......
Ive been looking at some wish pics according to my...

I really thought I had a like 31 32 waist.......::Digs back into her pork fried rice and shrimp lo mein::
Well ladies my journey seems to be on hold :(...
- 14 Jan 2013
anyway I spent over 15 hourssss at the ER a bunch of tests done including a contrast MRI and know Im on antivirals and steroids. FMLLLLL still have to wait for blood tests because there were special tests done that would not come back right away so now idk I have to concetrate on getting well now.....
side note (AND NOT LOOKING TO OFFEND ANY1) I was asked at the hospital why I hadnt seen a dr earlier and although i know that was my lapse of judgement honestly I never went because of lack of health insurance. I work HARD and although i must thank God for my fiancee who I honestly could not survive without i gotta say im frustrated that the govt does not help ppl like me I make about 350/w after taxes and they seem to believe this is enough for my daughter and I to live on!!!! where??? I get no health insurance, food stamps, child care NOTHING smh I'll leave it there bye ladies :( waiting on this hospital bill.....
Hi ladies.....so im on meds for the bell palsy and...
- 19 Jan 2013
anyway just venting. Good luck to all you ladies getting sx! happy healing.
Hi sisters, I wanted to do an update regarding...
- 22 Jan 2013
I've read girls taking 2 or 3 days off and going back to school or work Monday morning. Which if your up to it AMEN! but how can you be sure??? I would like to ask that you ladies really sit down and take all these things into consideration before having this procedure done, Including lymphatic massages and draining, Real Self sister prettygirlslim did a great update on this!. Those going out of the country, whether its DR or Mexico, Sisters please accommodate into your schedules at the least 5-7 days to recover NEAR your ps. This way if there is any fluid build up or complications your doctor is there to help and address the situation. I dont know about Mexico but but in DR patients from outside of Dominican Republic must get an insurance in case of complications. Covers up to $ 15,000 dollars for 30 days, inside and outside of Dominican Republic.You could get it at the clinic where you are going to have your surgery. Costs from 150 to 200 dollars, which is not included on surgical´s fees. Please ask your ps about this!!!
I know a lot of girls decide on Mexico or DR because it is so much cheaper for the quality of work. Deals are always good but please dont skimp on recovery! Instead of staying at a hotel make every effort to stay at a legitimate recovery house where the staff is knowledgeable about post surgery handling and are able to care for you.
If any of you are considering going to DR and would like to ask any questions about what it is like over there and what to expect from people please feel free to message me or just comment. But I would like all of you, no matter where you are having your surgeries to please read this post and take what I have said into consideration.
Blessed day ladies!!
Ladies found this on the web about medications you...
- 22 Jan 2013
"Keep in mind that you will not be able to take Aspirin, or products that contain Aspirin ( Bufferin, Anacin, Excedrin, , Nuprin, Anaprox ,Advil, Ibuprofen) by 10 days before the surgery, as well as supplements l Echinacea, Melatonina, Gingko she-wolf, Yohimbe, Garlic, Gingseng, , Kava Kava, and Vitamin E. These medications act like an aspirin making the blood thinner.
Do not take birth control pills at least one week before your trip."
Really want to send in my deposit but I read WU...

Hey girlys so this is where I am now. My tests all...
- 30 Jan 2013
I decided to get a complete check up in DR when I go in March for my vacay. I'm also hoping to squeeze in a consult with Yily :) we'll see!
i'm going to take this time to get a little fit since it doesnt look like I'll be able to have my surgery by April which will be my 30th bday :(
Ive started cardio, mostly running on the treadmill and I'm going to star doing Zumba twice a week. I want to lose at least 10lbs for my bday im 5'6 and 159 now :) lost some weight. If I do need to regain anything I'll do it before my surgery, which will probably be for late August early September after those flights go down.
On another note I want to send out prayers and healthy vibes to all our Yily Dolls who have sx coming up!!!! Well wishes to all u ladies!!!
Hi Ladies, So my sx is postponed for now trying to...
- 5 Feb 2013
Anyway in the meantime I'm taking Womens Ultra Mega Wellness pills from GNC ; I just ordered Amazing Grass Organic Wheat Grass Powder from Amazon. Oh and ladies those that bank with Citi I used my Thank You points to get an Amazon gift card worth $25 so it basically cost me like 3 bucks!
I'm also looking to get the Spilurina powder but I wanna see how it goes with the wheat grass first. I'm a very bad drinker :(
I also started getting my list together from Yily vets and those getting ready for sx now. So far I have
4. Board ( A Yily vet mentioned she used a microfiber dish drying mat may try that)
6. Weewee Pads
7. Hospital socks; the one that are non skid LOVE THEM!
8. Boppy Pillow
9. Wife Beaters to wear under garment
11. Maxi Dresses
12. Flip Flops
13. Baby wipes/ Feminine Wipes
15. Make Me Heal Harmony Healing Kit
16. Maxi Pads the thicker the better
17. Hibiclens soap
18. Water Pills
19. Protein Powder I use Designers Whey
21. Dark Colored towels
23. Iron Pills
24. B Complex
25. Folic Acid
26. Vitamin C
I also plan on going to like Target or Marshalls and getting a cheap mattress cover they cost about $15 to put over the bed at JM I just think maybe some fluids penetrate the sheets and who knows how old those mattresses are.
Also ladies remember you need to have $10 American dollars for the tourist card you purchase when you get there!
On a side note my fiancee is the cutest ever!! lol he sends me pics of asses he likes and I laugh cause think about it ladies....this is the only time they can look at butts and we wont get mad lmaooo. I asked him is this what you do at work?? lol so cute!
So thats all for now!! Any questions lemme know I'm a full fledged Dominican so if any of you want to know what its like over or what to expect from locals etc lemme know either through pm or in the comments below :) I'm still learning everyday and I ask tons of questions so feel free to do the same!
Hi ladies! I hope all of you are doing well in...
- 11 Feb 2013
This is the most important part of your journey. Your are choosing the person who is responsible for your well being and essentially your life!! Therefore you should check this persons credentials to the full extent of your ability.
That being said I see so many sisters (excuse my wording if it offends anyone, not my intention) jumping on a Drs. bandwagon, scheduling and paying deposits and THEN asking questions like "Is this a scam" "Is he/she Accredited" "What board are they on" etc etc.
Ladies THIS IS SERIOUS SURGERY!! Again I do not wan to offend anyone but PLEASE no matter who you chose as your ps PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH.
This day in age everything is at your fingertips. Use technology to your advantage. Google!! See what degrees this person holds. If you are on their website confirm the info they have for the surgeon is legitimate; they will list the boards name right on there along with their license number and any accreditation's and affiliations they have. It really isnt that hard.
Of course this is a haven for all of us to communicate and support each other but take the time to do your homework outside of Real Self. Google your doctor, find out what board they belong to, where they completed their Plastic surgery residency etc. For those that chose a ps outside of the US you can still do your homework visit that particular countries website. A lot of popular Latin destination for surgery have a link you can visit to find info on Drs.
Please dont rely solely on whatever you read on here. Its irresponsible to put your life in the hands of a Dr you know nothing about. In previous posts I have said that I am willing to help some ladies out with the language barrier with Yily and I meant it. If you want me to translate something you want to ask or need help navigating her site I'm more than happy to help.
Hope everyone has a great week and Happy V-Day :)
Hey ladies forgot to add that I found this no...

- 18 Feb 2013
My sx wont be for a few months (sep or oct) so im looking into getting some other work done like dental and laser hair removal lol I found 2 Derms on Realself and have sent in my info for a consultation. I also found a place on Yelp but if any of you ladies have gotten laser done lemme go cause there doesnt seem to be much movement on that thread!
I have been around but refused to update or...
- 11 Mar 2013
Anywhooooo sooooo I went to the dentist and will be getting braces soon :D I'm excited! lol
My Bells Palsy is under control and my aunt and I went to get some acupuncture done in Queens which I must say is kinda relaxing.....My mouth is a little bent and I feel a bit self conscious when I talk to people cause its very noticeable but it is what it is! def not stressing!
I still havent chosen a date but I know it will probably be October since flights will be low and I can wear my garment with no problems during our NY winters :)
Best wishes to all u Yily Dolls out there!!!
Hi ladies so now that more girls have actually...
- 20 Mar 2013
1. Most ( I DID NOT SAY ALL) are choosing to see a dr outside of the US for one reason only and that is $$$. While you may think you are saving money please realize that you are LEAVING the country. Things are just not done or handled in the same manner over there as they are in the US. The after care may not be as ur accustomed, heck nothing really is! If you have never traveled outside of ur comfort zone I would NOT recommend doing so for sx...IMO
2. Most are not researching their elective procedure enough and hence have NO IDEA what can go wrong.....(PLEASE VISIT PETITEMAMI BLOG)
3. Most are not researching their PS enough or in the correct manner. Just cause you saw some nice pics on RS, MMH or some other website that does not mean this is the right Dr for you! Those nice pics should just fuel ur desire to want to learn more about that Dr.
4. Unrealistic expectations....some of us have wish pics which in no way resemble anything plausible on our current body type and frame.
5. No pre-op care (Vitamins etc) No time dedicated to healing and Post op care. (SEE PREVIOUS POSTS ON MY BLOG)
I have seen all the recent reviews on Yily, my heart goes out to u ladies that have experienced complications or just unhappy with ur results, but that has not changed my mind. Its not because I dont believe them or I think it cant happen to me but because I do, and I know it can! I realize there can be complications but I have seriously researched this up the wazoo. I have a clear head going into this and will be at peace with my results. If you have ANY inkling whatsoever or any little voice in ur head doubting ur choice DONT DO IT. I'm not saying something is going to happen I am just saying that something this serious should be done with all ur heart and mind. You should not be having second thoughts about ur Dr. You can be nervous yes or even be getting cold feet but it shouldnt have to do with lack of an informed choice.
So yes I am still #TeamYily and when I am ready for my surgery I will be on my way to see her.
Disclaimer: I am not bashing anyone, throwing subliminals , or taking away from anyones experience. If you have followed my blog or seen my comments on ppls pages you know I do not partake in drama. I have no time for it, I have too much going on as it is so please dont bring it to my page...
Hey ladies so RS reminded me I havent updated in a...
- 23 Apr 2013
Which brings me to my next point. I was debating on doing the arms since I read a lot of reviews where girls were VERY thankful they still had use of their arms BUT my boo, his brother and I would all comment how some of the girls looked "done" they had tiny waist, fat butts and huge arms...Since I do want to look natural and proportionate I will def be doing my arms. A few looked weird having nice waists, flat tummy and then the big arms we didnt like it.
So for my actual Birthday I was seriously thinking of having a huge bash at a lounge but instead I'm just gonna go away somewhere for the weekend and then have a girls night with my ladies the following week :) I plan on being 29 *cough* 30 *cough* a few more times so whatever. Since I cancelled my bash my babe gave me extra sx spending money, a LV bag and my first pair of red bottoms so I think I won!
Anyway my mom is thinking of having some work done also so I may treat her to some lipo if all goes well with my taxes, I STILL HAVENT RECEIVED MY MONEY!! if not I may ask my brother to chip in and get her something done my mom is the best and I would do anything for her! :) I was going to stay at a recovery house since my fam isnt from the Capital but my aunt ( by marriage) offered to go with me and take care of me, she has a huge house in the capital and has cared for nieces of hers that have had work done so I'll be good.
Well thats all for now, just looking at all the brand new Yily dolls in awe :) all of you look great!
Sooo I need to vent!!! Went shopping this past...
- 30 Apr 2013
Anyway good luck ladies!! All of you!! I cant wait to read more reviews :)
5 Months to go :(
- 30 May 2013
I'm taking pre natal pills to get my levels as good as possible and then a month before I will get that pre surgery kit from make me heal, they seem to have everything. I'm taking Pre Natal Multi + DHA from Nature Made they were on sale in Target 2 for 1 a while ago so I have 1 at my job and 1 at home so I dont miss any pills.
I'm soo ready for this! :)
- 2 Jun 2013
I had an old iPhone 3 unlocked for like $50 here in nyc to use when on vacation. We went to Jamaica 2 years ago and at the airport purchased a sim card and minutes Spent 6 days there and still had minutes left at the end. We do the same in DR you can buy a sim from Orange (cell company) and just add minutes while there. Calling cards dont give that many minutes but if you have trouble accessing wifi or using your phone its a good alternative.
Hope this helps someone! Oh and I'm still waiting on Yily to confirm my date.....may just give her a call today.
Need to set a date!

Santo Domingo Plastic Surgery Center
- 21 Jun 2013
Yily is apparently operating out of Santo Domingo Plastic Surgery Center which is where Bello is. I have the link so you can check out some pics.
I would not worry too much but I know that those who are traveling out of their comfort zone can be freaking out right now especially since it seems Yily staff is not communicating with patients, big ball drop on their part, I would call and verify all this since I did have someone else call for me and did not speak with anyone myself. I trust 100% the person I had call but you girls dont know me or her from a hole in the wall so I would advise every doll here to take some time and call and find out and not to depend on the grapevine AKA RS to find things out.
In other news lol I received my Iron pills and liquid iron and I'm starting those soon. My boo is no longer coming with me cause honestly he'll be more in my way than helpful so I am just staying in a hotel room and having my ex mother in law who is a nurse take care of me. I know she is going to scream and yell and probably drag me to her house lol but I rather be in a hotel. My aunt cant accompany me anymore because she is taking her grandson to DR with her and coming back before school starts so oh well.
If anyone is going beginning to mid October lemme know!
Got 2 more quotes
- 9 Jul 2013
First I really dont think I will be going to Yily at all. It has nothing to do with her skills, overbooking, attitude or etc. It 100% has completely to do with the clinic she chooses to operate out of. I can not knowingly and whole heartedly go into surgery with her knowing the things that have happened. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH DEATHS EITHER I am talking about the sanitary conditions under which the hospital operates. Granted if I would have had my surgery pre Bells Palsy and around when LPB and PrettyGirlSlim went I would def not feel this way but I just cant. If she was to leave that clinic today I would go to her in a heartbeat.
Quote 1: I went ahead and got a qoute from Dr. Luis Lopez Tallaj ( I misspelled his name in my first post ever) he did my aunt and a cousin of mine and he REFUSED to do another cousin, the 1 I mention in my first post that almost died smh, she went to someone else. Tallaj quoted me $4000 for the bbl not including tests or faja.
Now Dr. Tallaj is not a current member of sodocipre, this does not worry me, but he is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons where he is the director of the international comittee and the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgeons. That is good enough for me!
Here is his site if anyone wants to take a look: http://www.drlopeztallaj.com
Quote 2: My second quote was from Dr. Cortes in Houston. My mom lives in Htown so I contacted him to see and his price was $9,500 this includes bbl, lipo to all areas, he does not charge xtras, hospital fees, pre op testing, 2 fajas (Colombian) and up to $5000 insurance in case something goes wrong after. I would need to pay for my meds post op seperately and for massages but he has a lady for that. I liked him a lot, so did my mom and sis, and Cortes has no sanctions or claims against him.
So there you have it ladies I am now torn between these 2 doctors any constructive comments are appreciated and if anyone has any questions just ask!
Again NO DRAMA, DOCTOR BASHING, OR PLAIN IGNORANCE ON MY PAGE!! I wont feed into it :) I still LOVE Yily and have confidence in her skills its her clinic I cant tolerate.
- 12 Jul 2013
- 16 Jul 2013
Anyway I'm still in the air about DR vs Houston but I am leaning more towards one than the other, we'll see how it goes so far both are very responsive and available to questions. Once I get my results I will at least know how I am am health wise and what I need to work on if anything.
till later :)
- 30 Aug 2013
A lot has happened since my last update. My grandma passed away and that alone has affected me deeply, then my brother got into a motorcycle accident in Houston, had to send my daughter to my moms for a while and decided to move from NY to TX within the next 6 months. So now I have to get all my stuff together and figure out the best way to go about all this.
Cant have my surgery by October like I planned but I m not letting this stop me! I'm one of those that believes in karma and aura and honestly I think ppl sometimes just drain others and are so jealous or negative that it affects those around them. I'm just venting here lol dont mind me if I seem to ramble or change thoughts mid sentence. Anyway I dont really let people get to me I just feel bad for those that look for flaws in others just so they can feel better about themselves and their pathetic lives. I say this because since I have been very vocal about my surgery and things havent exactly gone as planned I actually notice the smile coming across their face right before the "aww I'm sorry" *itch please! lol Its soooo sad to me that ppl dont have enough self esteem and rely on other misfortunes to make them feel good about their own shit oh well! My circle is TIGHT the smaller the better when it comes to friendships everyone else is just an acquaintance.
All my labs were good my Iron was a 13.2 :) but I am still taking all my supplements in case. One of my friends (I only really have 2 lmaoo) got her quote a while back from Yily and we have decided to this together in March so she can get her finances in order. I can wait, its funny how things change by now I thought I would be at least 6 months post op oh well MY TIME SHALL COME WHETHER THEY WANT IT OR NOT LMAOOO
tata ladies! XOXOXO
Pinky Swear :)

So now I'm in the gym since I gained some weight womp womp. I'm 170 now and I am trying to get down to 150-155 lbs and be fit at the same time and honestly I love it!
I'm gonna be putting up pics and videos of my workouts to help whoever wants it. I do legs, arms, abs, and cardio. I'm really trying to work out my arms because I dont like how some arms look after lipo so I want to get them toned plus I'll be needing all my strength after surgery :p
Thats it for now!
Body Slimming Wrap.....Okkkk
- 8 Oct 2013
I had 2 wraps 1 week apart.
I had them done in the early evening after work
I also exercise 3 to 4 times a week mostly cardio some weights.
Not really dieting but Im doing portion control and eating better
Stopped all sugary drinks NO soda in over 2 months :(
I'm still arranging our move to Houston so Its been kinda hectic I would like to get a part time job first and then after my surgery commit to something full time but I also dont want to put the entire household burden on my boo. Here in NY he gets paid GOOD money over $1200 a week but we dont know if he will be getting paid the same out there cause of the cost of living idk guess we wont know till we take the plunge!

Soooo No DR For Me
- 1 Nov 2013
I dont want to shut him out...I really want to include him in this process. We are engaged and ready to share our lives together so I really want him to feel like this is our journey not just my butt thing. So I am honoring his manly wishes and staying here :)
I thought this would be easy like ok I'm going to Cortez nope its not easy. If I go to Cortez its good like my mom is there she can take care of me dont have to pay hotel etc etc plus he doesnt charge extras its all good.. But then I came back on here just to look!!! and I like Ghurani now :( so I got a quote form Nancy for $7,799, we are still going back and forth a little.
Anyway I saw a Cortez patient LADYB2011 who got fat injected into her lips and they look hella HOTT!! Shout out to LADY B she has a VERY good and detailed post ya should read her story! Its all in there the good and the bad! I loved her results so now I want fat to fix the fullness in certain parts of my lips so I asked Nancy about that.
I will also be adding inner thighs so my new price should be $8,299 I found flights through United for about $500, for my hubby and me, in February though I may switch to March or April depending on how our move to TX goes. I want to do this before we move.
Thats all for now! Hopefully I dont change my mind again but I feel really good about this!! I may just put my deposit down with Ghurani and just turn off my computer!!
I think I'm guilty of self sabotage...
- 4 Nov 2013
So right away I was like oh well no Ghurani for me.....then I thought hmmm am I being a little tooo picky or dramatic?? I feel like I'm sabotaging my own surgery!! I'm just dismissing docs left and right! Are my lips that important sheeshhhh anyway I'm still leaning towards Ghurani idk something about Cortez he seems to be good for the ladies that want the huge badonk and big hips. I'm going for something more natural so I really dont know about him.
I may just out my deposit down and suck it up!!
Finished my wrap sessions!
- 7 Nov 2013
My before and after measurements are right on the pic! I'm so proud lol
- 12 Nov 2013
The reason I had to stop is I keep getting these heart palpitations and they hurt. I have an appt on Thursday with my doctor so we will see what he says. I am also getting my braces on ( I am going to be hot from top to bottom ladies! ) I was supposed to have them this past Monday but I had to have a filling removed and currently have a temp filling to see if I need a root canal or extraction which is a bummer since my orthodontist said I already have too much space.
So my surgery cost with Ghurani is $7,799 :) I'm happy with the price. My mom said she'll go with me looking into condos on airbnb
Thats all for now ladies!!
Got back from mu Dr.
- 14 Nov 2013
I'm thinking to myself wow bad stuff can just happen to anyone. I ask her who was your doctor and she says Cabral............I tell her I was planning to go to his clinic but for Yily but I decided against it. She asked me who I was going to now so I told her I was going to Ghurani in FL.
Anyway back to EKG everything looks normal my heart will not be popping out my chest and I can start exercising again!!! Yeaaaaa
That's all for now! Till next time ladies :)

All I want for Christmas is a Big Ol Booty :(

I decided to stay in the US so I switched to Dr. Ghurani who is Salamas partner. :)
