Hello everyone, I am a mother of one. I am 36 years old. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2010 and went from 307 to 162 lbs. It has been a real ride but I am loving every minute of it! Who told me when I lost all this weight I would look like a raisin in the sun. A lot of loose skin. I did a panniculectomy and extended tummy tuck last year August and loving the results. I do have an anchor scar but who cares I have a flat tummy. I had a hanger let me tell you! I want to have that small waist and big ol but. I also need my legs done as well. I may need a lift. With my research Dr. Yily seems to be the one. I live in Ontario so she would be closest to me. I have so many questions. I sent in for my quote and I know patiently await. How long does it take for her to get back to you. I also wonder how long I will be in the recovery house or should I just go to a resort. With my tummy tuck I was very independent only down for a couple days.
IOkay so heres the deal. I lost 150 lbs and now I...

1. With the bbl...is this just lipo and injecting fat to the buttock? Or are there cuts and rolling the bottom of the bum upward? Can someone tell me the bbl process that the plastic surgeon explained to you? BTW...even though I haven't heard of this happening down there she told me and I am passing it on. Any lipo more than 5 liters is not safe. Can kill you. Just passing info.
2. Implants...are they gel or silicone? Do we know the manufacturer? Have you seen the implant before it goes in. Are they good quality. Can they pop or burst inside you? What materials are on the inside? How do they feel inside.
She also told me lipo won't make sense for me with all the extra skin. So I won't be greedy. I am also gonna opt for the medical insurance. Does anyone know what that covers? Just curious. Thanks guys. Not being a negative Nilly just asking so I am informed.
Does anyone out there that has used the abdominal...

After seeing a few ladies on here ask about any further recovery houses in DR. My girlfriend spent time and there and truthfully she has a lot of good things to say about her. The price is $65.00 per night which includes accommodation, care, meals and her food looks so good and a lot of variety! There is an all inclusive cost of $150.00 for transportation which includes pick and drop off to airport, surgery, medical appointments. If there is anything else you would like to do you can speak to her. I have spoken to her already. She is very sweet and can understand English well. There is AC, hot water is very clean. She is gaining popularity as well. She will not over book as she told me when she was full. Her contact number is 809-595-3109. She is on Facebook as well.

Anyway, I hated CIPLA. The nurses were okay some were sweet. The medication sucked. Thank GAWD I have my Percocet and sleeping pills. The girls laughed and said I had a pill for everything. DAMN SKIPPY. The next day my blood tests were done. They found out that my blood levels dropped dramatically to 6.8 which is a dangerous level. I had to get a blood transfusion. Paid $200.00 for two bags of blood. I did not want to get the transfusion but they told me that it could be fatal if I flew with low blood levels which was true. I had the transfusion but I was terrified.
I went back to Angelas and honestly it was my saving grace. She took very good care of me. Her assistant Carmen was so sweet. I was treated like family. I AM an admin for Angelas group but I do not get paid. I will stand by good and honest people. She is just that! After surgery I was very swollen and in a lot of pain which was expected.
I was so swollen and Carmen would come and rub my feet for me. You are really like Angelas baby. She calls you her girls. She is a mother hen. She is very fiesty, she will cuss off any doctor for you she does not give two shits! She made it so her girls worried for nothing. She had the massage lady that came there and gave you your massage for $20. All needles were $20.00. She got medication for you. OH YES, OXO FORTE is a pain killer and it is the bomb.com. I wish I had some boxes of that to go home with. It is an anti inflammatory with 50 mg Codine. You only need two a day. I swear I didn't take my Percocet but I took those they really helped. Angela even arranged for a lady to come and do our toes and it was really cheap. Food was good and healthy. I can say she really takes care of you from my experience.
The first time I took a look at myself i felt like crying. My butt looked like a swollen pumpkin. I was very upset at how my body looked not knowing I had to give it time. I met with Duran post op and she explained that to me. What I did not appreciate is her scheduling our post op visits while she was doing a FB chat with her dolls and had all her girlfriends in her office while she was dealing with her patient. After sx she explained that she tried to help me with the extras but could not or did not like how it turned out. She did not charge me extra for it so I cannot complain. It was a good will gesture. One of my sx buddies was very weak. Literally passing out at the table. Angela flipped on Duran and had her to back to CIPLA in the middle of the night. Duran wanted her to come in the morning but Angela was not having that. Hell to the NO. She went back and got a transfuion. She also had arm lipo and her arms were wrapped in maxi pads. No one changed them. When I changed them for her...her arms smelt septic. I had to clean her with saline and put sterile gauze on her.
I had my massages which were great. Her massage therapist I call her wonder woman because how she fit my fat, swollen ass in a medium fajate idk.
I did not get a receipt for what I paid for. I asked and had to literally sit with Elizabeth (her secretary) to draft a letter in english for work. There was another girl who to do the same smh. Dr. Duran did not want to sign the letter I drafted she told me they would draft a letter and send it with the reciept throught e-mail. I NEVER GOT THIS. Despite several requests, emails, asking group members to request this. Still to this date.
The trip home was hell. We did have wheel chair service but I just wanted out of DR. I was very much over it. We almost missed our flight in NY. I don't know how we got through but we did.
Got back to Canada and two days later ended up in emergency. My left left went limp and would start to spasm. The pain was excruciating. I had to take muscle relaxers, call 911 and crawl downstairs backwards to open the door for the ambulance. They kept me over night and scolded me for having sx out of country. After testing me they found that she injected fat into my sciatic muscle!
I wore my faja religiously and that helped shape me. Naked I am not happy with my bum BUT it looks a lot better than what I started with. She asked me if I wanted hips i said yes. I did not know that I would go into sx I would be a size 12 and come out a 14. Really! I also asked her to make me a full C cup. I was happy with small breasts. I am now a DDD! I can't tell a lie she gave me a nice sillouette but I am not please that I went up in size. BTW my breast implants are NOT FDA approved. So, if anything was to happen my surgeon here could not replace them.
She told me that if I had a problems and needed correction surgery I could do so for free BUT we have to talk and agree which I was okay with.
When I got back I was home recovering on my own. Had a lot of pain and burning in my back. Couldn't get around. But was noticing after swelling went down in my breast that my implants were not under the muscle and I didn't get a lift. The chunk of fat that I requested be moved which was the driving factor that I went to her was NOT removed! You all have seen pictures. She said it was inflammation at first but now five months later NO. She will not return one email I sent her which is hurtful when she contact other patients.
So becasue I wasn't happy and had issues I shouldn't be checked on?
Then my trust level was subsiding. I was going to give her the money personally when I got back down there to correct everything but I will be very honest. When I saw that she would not give me a receipt for the surgery or the blood transfusion, a letter to confirm what I did for work which caused problems for me, finding out I did not get a lift, and a slu of other things I said HELL NO. How can I pay you in full without getting everything I paid for and to boot I am being ignored. Now Jazmine at Bella Vita has offered to intervene and help i have been to busy getting back to work to message her and I am thankful for her intervention. I am disappointed in the fact that I was ignored. Talk to me. Lets work things through. At the end of the day I brought Duran a lot of business and had two other ladies lined up to go to her. When they say all I went through they back out.
In conclusion there were a positives and negatives with my surgery experience. With all that is going on I am not trusting having surgery and really trying to see what my next steps should be.
I will never tell anyone do not go to her as it the persons personal choice but I will tell my story so people know the truth.
I am not one of them ratchet girls that try to barter down the doctor and skip out without paying. Nope, I am a legal professional. I tried to give this woman her money. I offered in DR to go to Western Union with her. She did not want to. Had she done that she would have been fully paid and I would have been fully screwed!
All I have to say to you ladies is PLEASE do your research. ASK important questions. MAKE sure you are in PRIME cardiovascular and physical shape. PREPARE for the recovery. IF anything does not seem, feel or look right do not do it.
After sx I was dead set against DR but I could not leave the groups. I want to be there for future dolls as a resource. As you can see even though I have my issues with Duran...she has done some good and while I was there she was nice to me. I could never say she showed me a bad face because that would be a lie.
I wish you all the best and truly love all you dolls.
Think with your gut first then your heart

From what I see she will give me the shape I need.
