Hello Ladies! Ive been stalking RS for a couple...

Hello Ladies! Ive been stalking RS for a couple weeks now and have decided to share my story with you all! I really enjoy seeing how supportive you ladies are!

I am 22 years old with two beautiful young children 19months and 3months old! my body type has always been very thin...i am 5'7 with my lowest weight being 119lbs pre-pregnancy and i am currently 130lbs which is a healthy weight for my size! because i was so thin before i had my children they gave me hideous stretchmarks on my stomach, hip, and buttocks and very loose skin on my tummy! i am half African american so my stretchmarks scarred a dark brown color. i am happy to say that the stretchmarks have improved 80% by using TAC chemical peel and using an exfoliation technique which i will continue to do after Sx...anyways ive been searching long and hard for a surgeon and Yily has yielded the results i desire so bad! i love that hourglass look that she is so good at! i am a little nervous going out the country alone but hey i think it will be worth it! I emailed Yily yesterday with some pictures and requesting a quote. i heard it takes a week or so for her to get back to you...ugh..the anticipation is killing me! I read on RS that i can PayPal her the deposit and email her my Sx date..is this true? the price isnt really an issue so maybe i should just go ahead and send the deposit?

when i was pregnant my butt got huge! i loved it! so did hubby lol....=) but now that i lost the baby weight my butt has a little sag to it because of the loose skin now...ugh...what our beautiful children do to us...lol...i desire a plump butt and fuller hips and im sure Yily can meet my expectations!

im a little worried i dont have enough fat on my transfer to my butt!!! any thin women out there have any advice or their experience to share?

if any of you ladies have any info on what steps i should take to contact Yily about scheduling a Sx date please let me know! i want to go end of May or first week in June! i am also looking for a Sx buddy for a discount and share a Recover Room with! =) send me a message if you are interested! i live in louisiana so if any of you ladies are in the south and want to share a connecting flight to the DR so we can get to know each other that would be nice too!

So i got my quote today from Yily! it only took...

so i got my quote today from Yily! it only took her about 3days to respond! i sent it in Spanish and English! this is what she quoted me:

The price for Tummy Tuck, fat grafting to buttock, BBL, liposuction of abdomen, armpit, back, flanks, waist is 3.900$USD. It also includes 1 compression garment, pre-operatory tests (TTP, HIV, Hbs, HCV, BASAL GLYCEMIA, GLYCEMIA, UREA, SERUM CREATININE, FULL BLOOD COUNT, VDRL, BLOOD TYPE Y RH), cardiologist (EKG), anesthesiologist (epidural block), clinic fees (room, operating room, nurses, IVs, 3 meals, surgical assistants, etc).

in my opinion i do not need lipo of the waist, back, or arm pits. i dont even have any fat to harvest from those areas!!!!i would be pointless incisions.! so i emailed her back and asked for a revised quote! i also asked her how much extra for my boobs! i will be posting some more pre-op pics soon to show you what i mean about not needing/wanting lipo in those other areas!

So I sent my deposit today through Yilys Chase...

So I sent my deposit today through Yilys Chase acct! I will be calling all day tomorrow to confirm she got it and lock in my date! Shooting for may 10th! I'm praying its open! I also applied for my Passport today! Super excited =) I feel I am just one step closer to the DR and my NEWBOOTY! Lol! I think I will start my list of things to bring!

Finally the review!

So I'm finally taking the time to write my review...yay! Lol... Here it goes:

So I leave Louisiana at 6am May 9th to Santo Domingo. I had a connecting flight in Atlanta with only a hour layover so the flight there wasn't bad at all. I get to DR at 1:30pm and my SX buddy is there waiting for me... Her flight had got in at 10:30 so she waited for me. I went through customs, exchanged 210$ for I believe 7,800 pesos ( more then enough for tipping) , picked up my luggage then went outside looking for Junior ( the driver from Jacqueline's spa). Junior was no where to be found!!! We called the spa, Yilys office and cellphone and no one answered! We called back to back for an hour and we started to get worried! There were plenty of taxi cabs outside the airport but I was very reluctant to take one for safety reasons! Finally it got to the point where we really didn't have a choice... Then we had the issue of trying to tell the cab driver where we were trying to go... I showed him the address to the spa but he ended up taking us to CIPLA instead! When we got there we went up to Yilys office where we met Yira... We told her that nobody from Jacqueline's picked us up from the airport! She apologized and then had us do our bloodwork and chest X-rays then, which worked out so we didn't have to do them the next morning. Over all the cleanliness of the office was decent... Nothing I wasn't accustom to seeing... I was born and raised in California and I've been living in Louisiana for 2 1/2 years now... Mind you the state of Louisiana is about 15 years behind compared to states like NY or CA... The doctors offices out here in louisiana don't have state of the art technology and are not spick and span but they get the job done. Same goes for the doctors in DR. Their devices and surgical instruments may not be space age technology but it works the way it's suppose to... Hell I was more scared at the surgeon office in Louisiana when I had to get a hemorrhoid drained then I was out in DR! The surgical tools he was using looked like they was from the 1800's no lie lol!!! But anyways if your only use to doctor offices in major cities with top of the line technology then you may be skeptical when you reach DR.

Anyways.... After our bloodwork was done Yira called Junior to come
Get us and we made our way to the spa... When we got there they offered us food and some ice tea... We originally planned to stay only 4 nights at the recovery house and the rest of the time at an apartment. We paid Jacqueline for our nights then she informed us that the double bed rooms were full so me and my sx buddy would have to share a king size bed and we would get half off for that night... We agreed and the bed was comfy lol... I must say that the food at the spa was delicious! I would fly back just for the food! And the staff was nice! Ana was the main nurse there and spoke the most English... She was soooo sweet and helpful! All the staff was helpful in my opinion!

The next day we got to Cipla at around 7am... There was 4 of us having surgery that day and I had spoken to the other 2 girls via real self prior to going to DR... They were very sweet girls and the 4 of us had no conflicts of personalities so it was awesome! The other 2 girls had to get their blood work and stuff done and my sx buddy and I still needed our EKGs... We got all that taken care of within a hour then we filled out some paper work about our medical history and that's when miss Highsadiddy walked in with her mom and I couldn't stop staring at her ass! Lol I kind of figured that was her because I seen her walk in with her mom and I'd been following her blog on Realself so I introduced myself and even got to see mamas tummy tuck scar up close and personal which relieved some of my anxiety because it looked beautiful! Lol... After that Yira had some demo implants for me to look at... I shoved the big one in my shirt and asked the other girls how it looked... They all agreed it was a good fit so I told Yira I wanted them.... After a lil bit of waiting on the other girls to finish their paperwork Yira asked who was first and I spoke up... At that point I just wanted it to be over with! Lol... Yira showed me to my room and set down a surgery robe and hair net with a stack of chux and my little blue pill taped to it... I changed my clothes and took my pill then a few mins later Yily was there to mark me up... I pulled out my wish pics ( the ones posted on my profile) and she looked at them and told Yira to tell me she will do her best but I don't have much fat. I told Yily I WANT HIPS FIRST THEN BUTT... This was because I already had some butt before sx.... She said ok... She pinched my back fat a little and squeezed the skin on my stomach... Then she told me that SHE WILL TAKE THE FAT FROM MY BACK AND USE IT FOR MY BUTT..... She then told me she WILL NOT LIPO MY STOMACH... Remember I was thin before sx and gained 12lbs just for the fat transfer... I told Yily that was fine and to do her thing... She said ok gave me a hug and left the room... I layed on the bed for what could of been 15-30 mins... The blue pill had me woozy... Lol... That's when they came in to wheel me off to the OR!

My bad the copy and paste glitched on my phone!

here's the rest!....
Once I got to the OR I remember seeing that the room was this hideous green color and it was freezing in there! I assume it was so cold to reduce germs... Anyways I remember the anesthesiologist setting up my iv and pulling me upright to get my epidural... About half way through the motion of sitting up for the epidural I was out of it... I remember collapsing into the arms of the nurse infront of me... Lol... Next thing I know I'm laying on my stomach feeling the liposuction on my back... It didn't hurt but there was pressure especially at the top part of my back I remember saying OUCH and that I was cold... I also was yelling HIPs HIPs I guess to remind her I wanted hips lol! I was awake about 90% of the surgery... I was just laying there looking around ( they did have a sheet up so I couldn't actually see what was going on... But I did know when she was on my tummy tuck and she did my breast last... Next thing I know I'm in my room starving to death lol... I seen my sx buddy and she told me that her hemoglobin was too low to get surgery so she was going to get a transfusion and go in the morning... It was unfortunate for her but it was such a blessing to me because she helped me out sooooo much that first night... I honestly don't think I could have done it without her! She fed me my soup, gave me my pain meds, called for the nurse when I needed them, made sure my blankets were on and I was comfy... Omg I couldn't be more thankful for her help! She's an angel!!!! I had a reaction to the epidural which wasn't a surprise because the same thing happened to me during childbirth but this was 100x worse... I would shake uncontrollably like I was freezing to death... My body was shaking and my teeth were chattering for about 7 hours after sx and it was sooo aggravating because all I wanted to do was sleep! Once the shaking stopped the bear hug sensation came! Yily vets know what I'm talking about... They bound my stomach in dressings after sx and it felt so tight as if my ribs were being crushed! It was the 2nd most painful part of this process! I slept maybe 3 hours that night because of the sensation that my ribs were being crushed by a steam roller! That first night at CIPLA had to be the worst night ever! I was dying to get back to the spa...

Then next day the nurse came in and emptied my drain and pee bag and brought me some broth to eat... At around 9 Yily came in and I told her the bandages around my ribs were crushing me... She told me that it wasn't the bandages but my muscles contracting from the procedure...she then asked me if I had my meds and where I was staying... And she told me that they would be here soon to put me in my garment... I was thrilled and ready to lay in the comfy beds at the spa! After I got changed I went across the way to check on the other 2 girls that had sx the same day... They were both really stiff and in mild pain...one of the girls had got her arms and thighs done too so she was a little worse off but I guess that's expected...

Junior came and got us about an hour later and took us to the RH... That day I caught up on sleep and text my sx buddy to see how her sx went. As for my time at the recovery house every day was pretty much the same... I'd take my meds and vitamins in the morning and ease myself out of bed to walk to the table for breakfast.... I had eggs and pancakes every morning with juice...you have the option to eat in your room but I know it is VERY IMPORTANT to WALK after sx.... No matter how exhausted you are or how painful it may be you got to move around to keep your blood circulating! For the first few days my only exercise was walking to and from the dinner table to my room... But it was better then nothing... It was hard to walk because with the tummy tuck you have to walk hunched over for 10-14 days so you don't put tension on the incision... Plus I have back problems from a prior car accident so walking hunched just made it worse... Lol... My room was located downstairs and there were about 9 rooms upstairs... I would hear girls talking up there so at 3 days po I took it upon myself to climb the 20 stairs so I could introduce myself to the other girls and socialize a little bit... All the girls were nice and it was nice to hear their stories and a little about their backgrounds and home lives... I really enjoyed talking to them they were all down to earth interesting ppl....

I want to say that through this process I had NO PAIN! My tummy tuck hurt the least out of everything.... My left breast would have a stinging sensation when I would pull myself out of bed but I believe that was because of the tension I was putting on the muscle... My butt cheeks were sore like I did 100000 squats and my back was tender from the lipo... My back felt raw like one giant bruise when it was touched... It made it hard to sleep on my back because there would be constant pressure on it... But none of these feeling are what I consider pain... Pain to me is like labor contractions or spraining and ankle... What I felt was discomfort... Like I did an intense workout and am paying for it the next day... Lol... I just felt extremely achy and stiff... The worst part to me was the lipo... If I didn't get my back liposuction the rest would have been a breeze!

I didn't have any complications while I was down there... No infection, no fever, nothing! I took my meds and vitamins like prescribed... I had sx on a Friday and went for my first checkup the following Wednesday... The nurse changed me bandages on my tummy tuck and breast incisions and said everything was healing good! She told me to clean my belly button every day with alcohol and water... What she did notice is that I had accumulated alot of fluid in my lower back (where my tramp stamp is...lol) and that if it doesn't go down with a massage she will have to drain it the following day with a needle...I asked do they numb it first and she said NO! I almost passed out! Any who... The fluid didn't go down So the next day I was back in the office getting it drained... This was the MOST painful part of my experience... The needle was so big and my back was soooo tender from the lipo! I cried like a baby... She ended up taking out over 150cc just out my lower back and I have to admit that even though it was painful I felt so much better! This all happened on Thursday and I informed her I was leaving the next day (Friday) and asked about my drain she said I would have to keep it in for another 5 days... As soon as I got back to the spa I called my doctor in the states to see if she would take my drain out the following Monday and she agreed! I was thrilled because some doctors don't want to touch you if you had work done out the country...

So that night I got my thing packed to leave the next day... By Friday morning I was ready to go home! My flight was at 2 so junior dropped me off at the airport around 12... I got a wheelchair and they checked my luggage... Security with my drain wasn't that bad... In DR they took me into the back room and had me lift up my dress to show them my fajas... I told her I had a tummy tuck and she just felt around... She didn't make me unbutton it... The 4 hour flight to Atlanta wasn't that bad but I noticed I didn't drain the entire trip home so my feet and legs were swollen.... When I got to Atlanta I had to go through customs pick up my luggage, recheck it, and go back through security... I advise you to have a wheelchair on your way home especially if you have a tummy tuck... Security in Atlanta wasnt bad either they just looked at my drain and swabbed my hand for explosive materials I guess... Then I was off to my next flight... I had a 4 hour layover but it gave me time to eat... My flight from ATL to Louisiana was only 1 1/2 hours so I wasn't anymore swollen then the previous flight... Hubby picked me up from the airport and I was off to my home sweet home! I missed my boys so much...

When I got home I still needed help getting in and out the car or off the couch but each day got better... Hubby gave me massages and helped me shower and change my bandages... I was still walking hunched over until about 10 days po... Then gradually day by day I started to stand upright... By 12days po I had alot of my energy back... I was able to straighten up the house and even cook dinner... I'm currently 3weeks post op and I feel great... I do still get tired easily but I'm able to do everything by myself... I take care of my 2 year old and 5 month old with no problem other then being exhausted by the time hubby gets off of work... I do nap during the day when my kids nap because I don't want to over do it and end up hurting myself or my results.

Well that's pretty much it for my review. Yily was nice... Some people think she's rude but I just think its her demeanor that comes off a little rough... She did a great job! I love my results! My incisions are beautiful and my ass looks great. She had little fat to work with on me and I believe she did her best! I'm happy and that's what matters!

*all my results are real no photoshop or taking advantage of camera angles*

I have skinny legs and thighs so I could not pull off a nicki minaj ass... It would look horrible! Not to mention FAKE! Yily did what was good for my body and I do look like my wish pics... I'm happy!

5 week update!

Hello ladies! I've been MIA for a bit celebrating my bday that just passed!....as for an update... I'm healing great and feeling great... I still have fluid in my back and if I have my faja off for too long my tummy gets puffy so I still wear it all the time,.. I'm not so much stiff anymore but I do get this sensation as if my skin is ripping if I move or get up too suddenly... But that's expected with the lipo... I'm not gettin massages any more but my hubby does rub my back with lotion every night even if its only for 10mins to break up the fluid...

My breast have seemed to have settled into place and they look fabulous! Perky and bouncy

My butt had fluffed some more and is jiggly like a natural butt :)

My tummy tuck incision is improving tremendously each day!
If you are getting a tummy tuck YOU MUST BUY Silicone scar sheets!!! I use Scar Away brand! I swear by these things! I tend to keloid and my drain hole was not pretty...but I used the scar sheets for 3 days and my keloids were gone!!! Like freakn magic!!! Don't use them until 4 weeks though... Your incision must be healed completely before you start using them...ill post comparison pics of my scar to show you! Scar sheets are a MUST if you keloid like I do!!!

Few more pics :)

More pics!!!

I've gotten so much more projection! It seems like my butt is changing daily... Especially since alot of my back swelling has went down! I love my results and I'm not so much upset that she didn't put fat at the bottom because my ass still looks good... She know what she's doing!

9weeks post op!!! Pics!

Just wanted to update you all! I'm still stiff in the mornings and I still get that sensation as if my skin is ripping if I'm laying or sitting and get up too fast. Also my stomach muscles get sore by the end of the day so I put my tummy board on... I'm still fluffing and I love my results more and more! I get so many compliments on how good I look! Yily did a wonderful job!

Just wanted to share a few pics of my BA and TT!

I love my breast!!! They are big round and perky. And make me look very curvy and proportioned... Also wanted to share some pics of my incision... It's healed up nice and the scar itself looks great! I do scar easily, keloid, and my scars become dark so for my body this scar is looking great.... I am using mederma on the little stretch marks I have left and scilicone scar sheets on the incision.... When I get 4 months post op ill start using the TAC chemical peel on my dark scar areas again... I used it prior to sx for scars and stretch marks and it does wonders!

Feeling like a million bucks! :)

I love what Yily did to my body and I look better and better every day! In the beginning I was a little doubtful and wanted more fat but since the Fluff I feel it fits me perfectly! All you ladies that just had sx and are not pleased right away give it some time! Please don't be discouraged! Give your body time to do its thing!

11 week pic

Just a few pics! Next week I will be deleting a few of my after pics just so there aren't so many! Just PM me if I take down a pic you wanted to see!!

3 months post op!!!!

Here are a few pics! Since sx I have gained 8lbs... On sx day I was 141lbs now I am 149lbs on average ( less some days) excuse the cellulite lol!!! Still haven't been able to work out since I had so many procedures at once...but this week I will start back in the gym doing light leg workouts like squats and stair steppers! I'm very pleased with my results! My incisions have healed great and she didn't give me too much butt for my bird legs (as you can see how skinny they are in the pic) lol! I'm wishing all you dolls the best and for those of you who have messaged me I will be getting back to you today! I've been a lil busy! Thanks for all the support it really helped me through my journey and encouraged me to be positive! Love all you dolls!

New legging pics!

I Want to wear leggings all the time! Lol!

New pics! And a short update!

Hey ladies! Been gone a while but I'm here to update you as promised! So as far as feeling back to normal goes I'm at about 95% now... The only issue that I'm having is my stomach muscles still swell at the end of the day... It's only my top 2 "packs" (referring to my non existent 6 pack) lol... My scar has healed nice... I have been slacking on my scar treatments so it is still dark in color. But it should fade with time. Hope y'all like the pics and to those of you who have messaged me I will get back to you shortly I apologize I have been extremely busy! Thanks dolls and future dolls!

TCA Peel for stretch marks

When I had my first child I was left with horrible stretch marks and loose skin galore! I have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of them and what worked best for me was using TCA peel (amazon.com $20) with an exfoliation technique. Remember the higher % TCA the more potent it is.

What you need:
BHomemade sugar scrub: 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup ground coffee, 2 Tbs olive oil

TCA chemical peel

Moisturizer: Mederma, coco butter, or Shea butter

Here's how:
Apply TCA on affected area and use as directed on label... I personally keep the peel on until it starts to sting 3-5 mins. Bottle reccomends no longer then 2 mins.

Wash off the peel with cold water and moisturizer area.

In 3-5 days you will notice your skin peeling slightly like mild sunburn

When you notice peeling its time time to use the homemade scrub. I do the following steps in the shower.

Apply scrub in the palm of your hand and scrub vigorously with open palm in circular motions.

Scrub until skin is slightly pink/red... NOT BLEEDING!!! Just a little pink.

Wash scrub off and moisturize very well.... Wait 4-5 days for the skin to recover and repeat entire process.


The idea behind this technique is that you are removing old skin/scars and allowing new fresh skin to grow!

It worked extraordinarily well on my dark purple stretch marks! The color turned to grey white marks after just a few treatments making them far less noticeable

Mini update

So ill be 5 months Post op in a couple days and I'm happy to say that the soreness in my upper abdomin is almost gone and I'm slowly regaining my core strength... Yesterday I was actually able to hold upmy body weight on my "fitness pole" with out feeling like I'm straining my muscles too much. I know hubby's excited I can start putting it to use again!

Few more pics for my dolls<3 <3 <3

Here are a few pics... I love sharing with y'all and I'm trying to respond to everyone's question!

7 months post op pics

Hey dolls just wanted to post some up dated pics! My tummy tuck is taking the longest to heal! My breast are soft and my back and but are healed from the lipo and bbl but my stomach muscles are still sensitive at time. I did have the muscle repaired with the tummy tuck so that may be the reason it's taking a while. But it is improving with time!

Weight gain after bbl

So so due to the holidays and my recent vacation I have gained about 12lbs since SX. I have noticed that most of the weight has gone to my butt YAY!!! But I've also noticed that on my back where she lipoed that there are spots that she missed. As I gain weight those missed pockets if fat are more pronounced than the rest of my back.

Different angles

Some more pics!

Ill be posting updated pics of my breast and tummy tuck as well!

For the ladies asking me how the heck I slept!

So many ladies inbox me asking how I slept with all 3 procedures at once! So please look at the pics! I slept on my back with 2 pillows behind my head and 2-3 pillows under my knees. With having my knees bent it took the pressure directly off my butt cheeks and put it on my lower back instead. It also allowed my tummy to stay in a bent position because you can't stretch out after your tummy tuck.

Almost a YEAR post op!!

Hey dolls!! So I'm a full year post op next month! I'm posting early because this may be the last time I update this blog! I'm happy to announce that I will be starting a NEW blog about my scar revision and more lipo, with a possible fat transfer to my lateral hips! My butt will not be touched! Lol... It's big enough with plenty of projection the way it is, I'm just looking for more of hourglass from the front view... I'm still undecided if I want a fat transfer at all so I guess we will see!.... As far as my scar goes it is low and esily hidden but it did keloid... i already figured that i would keloid BEFORE i even had a tummy tuck (read my review)...I have decided to not go back to Yily because of her increase in prices in the last year. When I originally went to her I got work done that would cost me over $20,000 in the states for $5,000... I feel like I got away with robbery... This time since my procedures are rather inexpensive I feel I would save more money by staying in the states when I figure in flight, recovery house, not to mention the 4-5 hour flight.... I have found a great and inexpensive Dr in Miami, Dr Fisher! I think that he is like how Yily was last year, just becoming popular, on a mission to perfect his work, and not money hungry because the "fame" hasn't hit yet.... He's really starting to build his bbl portfolio! And he give the vixen booty not just "improvement"... Even thought I won't be getting a BBL, I do want a Dr to work on me that knows and is use to producing the "look" that I want! I've been in contat with a coordinator from his office and I will not be gettin surgery until March 2015.... I'm in no rush, my body is bangin and I'm content now but since my best friend of mine is going to get a breast lift and implants done in Miami next year I figured I can go with her, it's her first surgery and since I've had 4 done at once she wants me to be there! I figured I can get my touch ups done when I'm out there! I'm posting some pics so you can see how my scar healed and of course some updates of my butt and breast! I will still answer inbox questions and will respond to comments! Thanks all you doll! I deff couldn't get through this journey without you all!!

Couple more pics to show great projection!

Hi I notice in ur review u gave Yilya 3 for aftercare follow up,what would u say lacked?
  • Reply
Love the new you. ? Is saline better then the Euro silicone ? Do you have any problems with them? Do they feel natural?
  • Reply
I know that silicone can have health issues associated with them and the saline is a healthier alternative I still chose silicone because saline tends to ripple especially if not under the muscle... My beast have a natural sag they are not high profile... I chose to not do a lift and I'm happy with the more natural look they have.... My beast are soft and not hard like some implants can be... The only problem I have with them is that they are a little heavy but I can't complain because I chose 500cc... They fit my body well because I'm tall.

Check ur spam or junk mail. I thought they didn't email back too when I contacted them but I happen to look in my spam mail and it was there twice! So check that, they are normally good with responding at least in a few days. Good Luck @missmilli

A little trick I learned when emailing Yily is to translate it to Spanish on google translate and in the subject write Deposit Sent or Need to send Deposit... It catches her attention... I hear she's now charging $9,000 for all 3 procedures I had done... Can somebody confirm this for me... It's insane how high she went up! Thank god I went when I did
  • Reply
I wrote her In Spanish ill try the deposit thing..I hope not cause if she does I can just got to dr.jimmerson in the state thats tooooo much for Dominican Republic

they think all Americans are rich and spoiled! They're going up on all the prices over there. The taxi drivers charge more than the drivers over here. Dr. Baez Told me to pay no more than $20 in pesos for a ride to the clinic.
  • Reply
Yea I heard thats y im going to stay at daisy recovery house all transportation included
  • Reply
They only charge American s that price. If you live there surgery is even cheaper! I'm getting my bbl and tummy tuck done there and my ba done here.
  • Reply
I love it!!! How did u sleep because I emailed dr.baez and she told me I couldn't get a bbl and ba at the same time because I would have to lay on my back and it would flatten my butt
  • Reply
I heard that not true...there a way of laying down anyway...there are also special pillows for it...sorry for intruding.....im planning to do it alll lmbo
  • Reply
No problem glad u did intrude lol .. im trying to go for all three In beginning of july when I told dr.baez thank u and ill seek a different opinion she told me dont say that because she disagree and it can be problems after .. well I disagree with her ive seen 2 many good results .. I really want dr yily but I emailed her a week ago haven't got a response yet
