made a decision. US

Ok after several.attempts to.contact dra yily through all.avenues to only get a response 3 weeks later advising my req date.was no longer avail. I went with my first choice.and previous.surgeon dr
Barry J. Cohen..Rockville Md. Consult today for 3 area Lipo. (I really dont need a bbl) surgery scheduled for 3/28/14. Im.soooooo excited and beyond.comfortable with my decision.
Jill I decided to stay in the states and go with my previous surgeon. No need to get caught up in the hype of the Dom Rep. I like.that I can call and show.up. vs.going out of country

Understandable, seems much more convenient to stay local if you don't mind the cost difference and like the work of the surgeon.  I can see the pros and cons for both, but personally can't imagine having to sit on an international flight after surgery!  But I hate flying in general.  Looking forward to hearing all about your pre-op and post-op journey :)

Thank you Jill. Staying home cost only $250 more.. yilly quote waa 3500 but rt airfare was $500 garment $65 meds $250 30 day insur $150 .plus a poss return flight another $500. Recovery house $750. $75 per night minimum 10 days. And additional time from.home and work. Here its 5200 all inclusive 1 week off work. I can return the following week. Follow up included. Health insurance covers prescription meds. And if I have complications i.can see.the dr or go to my pcp or emergency room and.be covered. Soo I recommend people really check the total.cost of the trip not just the surgery fee. Now if I were getting. TT lipo bbl and breast it WOULD be ALOT CHEAPER. BUT may pay on the back end. Ill post pre op photos 1 week prior to surgery. Then day of and day after. And weekly updates. Thanks for the support

Almost 5 liters. Dr sent my pic maximum 5000 cc's in the states

36 hrs post op rear

36 hours 2nd bandage change loving my results. No more back boobies

4 days post op

Day 4 I feel good. No more pain meds. New CG delivered today. Tight as hell omg! But better back support. Va Jay jay seems a little swollen. More bruising at lower abs site. Was able to drive. But difficult getting in and out of car. No more leaking. Yaaye! Keeping gauze on incisions though they feel like rugburns. Better covered to prevent chaffing with the CG
You look great! I am post op 2 weeks tomorrow. ( My date was 3/19/14) I'm still much more swollen than you. My flanks have hard lumps.... I'm so numb..If I take my garment off it feels the same...!

Thank you Scarlett. Im 8 days. Saw dr yesterday. He said I was still swollen quite a bit. (I was hoping he said that because I want the bulge to go down at least another 3") I was a 36.5 waist its 32 now in praying for a 29. The hardness is normal and can last a few months. The numbness is aggravating as hell. Kinda feels like I was shot up with novacaine and now the itching is beginning like a tattoo that's healing. I cant feel my full scratch. To help with your lumps. You Have to Massage the areas on a regular basis. I do it most after a hot shower. Thats the fat repositioning itself and you have to keep it smooth. Help it even out. You do it. Get a masseuse. Significant other somebody and start now. Act like you have a baby in your tummy. Rub away. You will notice changes in a few days

Thank you for replying. My Doctor said nothing about a massage. So bummed. Yesterday I was 2 weeks post, and I measured myself. My belly was down by and 1 1/2 inches, but my waist was up 1/2 inch! I did this to be curvier. ! Im pretty petite, but he took out 2/1/2 lbs. Weight is same. (I cant lie, I have had some salty foods!

11 day journey

Day 1 to post op day 11

I wrote a review somewhere. I need to find it

11 day post op.

Ok. Sooo after 3 CG. That sizing is crazy o started with an abdomen wrap. Then purchased a halter faja. Tried the 1 piece romper. Umm yeah well its ripped in pieces and in the trash. Day 10 yesterday I purchased a homedics massager from bed bath and beyond. Its awesome. Bruising is almost gone. Vajay jay swelling has decrease. Incision sites on hips are sore. I think from the CG not covering that far. Scabs have fallen off. Upper back is sore I take advil for that. Massage daily at min 45mins b4 bed. Im still.swollen and today im.bloated. pre.menstrual. so I look bigger than day 2 post op. My waist at navel is a 34. But my 7 jean shorts are a size 32 and fit with the gap in the back :) I have several lumps and knots around my navel. They sometimes have sharp pains. I see some unleveled areas. I started using the lipo foam. The CG created an indentation in my lower abs so im trying to correct that b4 its permanent. Follow up visit scheduled In.4 weeks. Skin feels really tight and its difficult to stretch. I use the faja during the day and the ab wrap at night. Im moving around. I can drive. But taking this last week to just relax b4 heading back into the office. I attached a photo grid from day 1 till today and my wish pic. I think ill look better than my wish pic though. Lol.
How are you doing?

Finally cleared

Hey ladies its been a while and I havent posted. Apologies. I had a really bad cold/flu/allergies. Idk. But its over. Im 5.5 weeks post op today. I keep shrinking. Saw my PS today. I have a hard lump near my navel. He attempted aspiration to see if it was fluid. not I received an injection of Cortisone to loosen the mass and was told keep massaging. Good news. My results arent typical at this stage usually at 2 months. Still swollen and my bra size has dropped from a 38 to a 34. My natural waist is a 30. Ive lost about 8 inches. There. Still have incision itching. And soreness along my flanks/sides at night when I sleep or stretch. He says my muscles are bruised but it will continue to get better. Im back to my pre op activities. I wear CG All day except at bedtime.
How r u doing? I have not seen a post for awhile.

Hey Colorado. I get confused on where im posting. Lol. Im doing well lumps are subsiding and evening out. Saw ps 2 weeks ago. Received a shot or cortisone near my navel. The lump softened up. I still feel sore around my sides. Dr said my muscles were bruised. I wear my marena cg everyday all day. And my marie faja waist cincher every other night. I cant stand the itching. Omg! Some spots of numbness still. Im still slightly swollen but I cant tell. If I stayed my current size I would be fine. New problem. My clothes. Lady let me tell you how I wear size 12/14 azz and hips. But they all fall off my waist. O_0! Leggings and dresses are easier to wear. My bra size went from a 38dd to a 34D. Pissed all my new bras are too big. Lol. My final.visit is Jun. May need some touch up but we'll see. Tomorrow I will officially be 6weeks post op and will post pics and meashrem measurements :)
