Hello, I'm a 23 year old female no kids. I'm about...
Hello, I'm a 23 year old female no kids. I'm about 5'3" I weigh about 150/155. I recently decided to go with this procedure. I do not have the worse shape in fact people tell me all the time I have a cute shape. However, I am not happy with it. I have love handles out of this world, I hate the way I look in a dress and swim suit. I just hide it very well. I have been researching for the past month in a half I would say. So first and foremost I am interested in lipo of my sides, back, and upper/ bottom stomach. Inner thighs and arms maybe. I have small breast I will do implants but later down the road after kids. Any who, I have a ok size butt but its tooooo low. I have hips but would like more. Soooo I started by doing my research on Dr. Jimerson here in Atl he gave the prefect bodies but he was toooo much. Moved to Dr Okoro who is always in the Atl area. For a couple of days I had my mind set on him. I initially thought the credit care was best for me then reality hit me...I am not in debt and I do not want to be paying off this surgery for the next two years...back to the drawing board I went. I rather pay up front cash and get it over with! I didnt want to spend over $6000 for this procedure and i know i could have that in cash by the date of my procedure. I read several good reviews on Drs in DR narrowed it down to two females. Duran and Yily. When I tell you I read just about every review looked at every picture morning noon and night even on lunch breaks! I am hooked lol! So I emailed Yily first in Spanish and English. I found Duran on Facebook and sent her a message in Spanish she replied in a couple hours. Yily did reply about a week later. I think both ladies are wonderful Yily is about $400 cheaper. However, I decided to go with Duran for a couple reasons. I've read she gave bigger butts, it's easier to communicate with her (which I have experienced personally) and she is more personable. I haven't decided on rather i would want to get a hotel and hire a nurse or stay at a recovery house...so many pros and cons with both. I plan on going April/ May of 2014 I honest don't want to wait that long but I just started a new job about 6 months ago and I do not have enough sick leave hours to take off 4 weeks. After I did my calculations by April/May 2014 I will have enough hours.
Changing my date
So I decided that April/May was too long! I've decided to change my date to Jan 20, 2014 and my friend decided she will tag along with me and get some work done. I just emailed Duran to see if its extra for chin lipo my friend wants that. As far as the work issue I would have to use some of my annual leave time because I won't have enough sick leave time. I will just have to take off 3 weeks in stead of 4. Good thing about my job is I work 12 hrs shifts. For ex I will work Monday and Tuesday I will be off Wednesday and Thursday work Friday Saturday and Sunday off Monday and Tuesday work Wednesday and Thursday and off Friday Saturday and Sunday. I sit at my job but I can stand if I need to.
How many days after procedure should I take off work?
Any ladies have any suggestions? 10 days in DR to recover, maybe another week at home? I know there will be pain and I don't want to underestimate it.
Changed my date.
Ok so spoke with Duran there is a festival going on the day I picked so I must change the date. Thinking a week earlier or a couple days later I'm not sure. My friend decided she is down 100% and she is coming along for sure! So I know I won't be in pain alone lol! Still deciding about this recovery house thing :-/
Switching To Dra Baez
I love Duran's work but she is overwhelmed with ladies emails and I can't get the rest of my questions answered. And i have so many! I know Dra Baez doesn't have a lot of her work posted on here by the few I saw and the ones on her website is impressive. I will keep you guys updated. My date is still the same. Bittersweet moment!
Looking for a buddy.
Hey ladies, my friend and I are going to Baez Jan 21 & 22. We are renting an apartment near by. There is an extra room available. We will be there Jan 20-30 so if anyone is interested or if you know someone let me know.
A lot has changed.
Date changed to Jan 28. My friend is no longer going with me. So just going to stay at a Recovery house thinking about Yasmine. Now I need to figure out which airline to take because the departing and arrival times are all crazy times. I'm still looking for a buddy.
Hey ladies, any suggestions on what brand of vitamins to buy? And also what foods do you suggest? I'm such a junk food person..thnx
So thanks to User bklynbeauty I found some vitamins with great reviews that will raise my hemoglobin. I don't know if its high or low but it doesn't hurt to start taking supplements now. I will go to the DR late Nov or early Dec. I hope this one vitamin is enough because I don't see myself taking 4/5 vitamins a day.
Only wish picture
So I have been taking my vitamins for 3 weeks now. I will schedule a doctors appt next month sometime. I haven't posted a wish picture so he is one.
Found a RH.
I'm not a last minute person at all. After researching and speaking to several different host I decided to stay with Angie. "Silothuette Recovery House" I have attached photos she sent me as well as her email with her rates included
The recovery home fee is $85 a day and $65 with a companion and this includes :
3 meals and snacks
Fresh fruit juices
Backup power generators in case of power outage (which is a given in DR) lol..

Washing of your garment
This is on a 7th floor and you get a full panoramic view of the whole city!!! Elevator included!
Airport transportation is an additional fee of $40 each way
Payment in full is made in cash upon arrival. And a $100 deposit is required to reserve a room. The deposit is deducted from your total and is nonrefundable
I can run you by the store or beauty shop if you'd like!
Prices may change by next year, hopefully not !
let me know what you decide. I would love to have you!!!
Staying in the U.S for my bbl
So, recently I went to Vegas from ATL the plane ride was about 3 1/2 to 4 hours. All I could think about is flying back from DR after having my surgery. I don't want to be so uncomfortable for what seems like forever 1st class or not. The bathrooms are so small ugh! I had a issue at baggage claim here in ATL I couldn't help but think about being in DR with the language barrier ! It's a even more hassle for me with trying to get medicine, phone cards, etc! I decided to stay here. I recieved a quote from Dr Lagrosso's office for $ 6,000 and i am waiting on a quote from one of the doctors that work for Vanity Cosmetics. Hopefully Dr Salas he quoted a Facebook friend of mines $3,500. These doctors are in Fl so my plane ride will be about a hour and a half and the tickets are half the price than the DR tickets. My boyfriend said he will pay half and come with me so I am happy about that. My sister also said she will tag along. So I feel much much better! I will still take my blood builder pills and drink the pur absorb. Also another reason I am staying here is because the communication is better I plan on taking FMLA and papers need to be faxed from the doctors office before. However Baez couldn't provide the papers until after. Don't get me wrong I'm not knocking surgery in the DR I'm just not prepared for all the extra! I still love Baez and will always recommend her to people that are interested in getting work done there.
Deposit paid with Vanity
I was originally quoted $4,000 and was offered a $200 discount if I could pay $1900 today. I paid it yay! That money was burning a hole in my pocket. The office also has a lady they refer who has a recovery house.
Which doctor Salas or Hassan?
They both work in the same clinic. I want my body sculpted. Not just a big butt I want a small waist. Confused.com I have spoken to a patient of Hassan and saw pictures if another girl that went to him both look amazing! Torn!!! I wish I had more pictures. They really don't have a lot of reviews on here.
Plane ticket purchased!!
So I co worker of mines new I was planning a trip to Miami in Feb. He called me this morning because he saw on the news that all airlines was matching the price of $155 round trip tickets ATL to MIA... That's a deal I couldn't pass up! Ticket price came up to $177.80. I got a seat in the back of the plane so I can stand if necessary.
Right after surgery is it better to have your butt cut out? I'm talking like hours after? Did you ladies purchase your second garment when you got back home or before you left your doctors office?
Where do I start...I'm going to read as many reviews on here and put a list together.i just don't want to purchase unnecessary things.
Switching to Dr Hassan
After talking to one if his patients and looking at her photos I have decided to switch to him... I'm confident that he will sculpt my body right!
Haven't had my first surgery yet and planning my second one I want breast implants...but I am staying here in ATL...wonder how long I will have to wait?
In my feelings :(
I am soooo excited about this surgery but as I am reading others reviews I wish I had someone to go with me...my friend says she will come but I don't think she Understands that this isn't a vacation... A nurse is about $200 plus a day ugh what to do??
Count down begins!!!
Time to start SERIOUSLY taking my iron (pur absorb) and blood builder pills...I started taking them for about 3 weeks rigorously but fell off :( ugh I have to get it together and quick 2 months and 3 days until the new me!!!!!
My head is spinning!
Finding a place to recover is far my stressful than finding a doctor...Really wish there was an affordable recovery house in Miami..*sighs* HELP ANYONE!
1 month 26 day pre op
My current measurements are 34 35 42 :( ugh I really really want a 24 in waist...praying Hassan can work that out for me and of course with waist training ...
online vs store
I'm in the business if saving money my bday is next month....I want to start buying supplies I have finally gotten my list together...is it cheaper to buy online or physically go to the store? I also stumbled across this beauty body on someone's page and fell in LOVE!!!!
Came across a good inexpensive company that offers surgical aftercare services in Miami $15-$19 a hour. Home Watch Care Givers contact number is (305) 222-7942
Www.homewatchcaregivers.com I am using them for transportation (errands, grocery shopping, prescription pick up etc)
Jessica just called from Vanity offering a $300 discount on my quote if I was to pay another $1000 to my $1900 deposit. I missed her call so I will def be calling back tomorrow and paying that..that will bring my total down to $3500!
