Cabral got it going on- I'm in love: Dominican Republic

Hi everyone I have been stalking this site for...

Hi everyone I have been stalking this site for about a year know. I am 25 years olds, and I have one child who is 2 years of age. I've always dream of having a perfect body. One with a very small tiny waist, big hips, thighs and a nice run butt. Im about average in weight 149Lbs, and 5 2" tall. I'm physically active, I love exercising. I do it like about 3-5 times a week, but I still have not achieved that dream body I've always want. I already had a mini tummy tuck on Jan 2013, however the work was very sloppy ( loose skin, uneven sides, and still a hump). I did it in my home town, which is St. Thomas USVI, with a plastic surgery from Trinidad, by the name of Errol James. I am doing this plastic surgery to treat myself for all the goals I have achieved, and I believe I deserve it. just graduated from nursing school in May of 2013, and I am currently a Registered Nurse after passing my boards on January 15, 2014.

I choose to do my surgery with Dra. Yily. I have fallen in love with how she shapes the body giving you those natural but still sexy curves. Her stitch work is very neat and I've read that she gives great bedside care. I plan to do a full tummy tuck, liposuction of the whole torso, ad a bbl. Dra. Yily gave me a quote of 4,300. Im about to send in my deposit tomorrow so that my surgery date: 9/25/14 is being reserved. I am excited especially when I see a Yily's Barbies post pictures of the current results.

I still have a long way to go, so I'm still doing research and things I need to know to prep for the surgery (affordable places to stay, supplies needed, garments and their website essential vitamins, etc)

Deposit/ Surgery Date

Hey ladies, I sent my deposit ($300) to Yily today, and my surgery date has been confirmed!!! I am having my surgery on 9/30/14. I am elated!!!!

I also got some great news today! I got a new job at my local hospital as a NEW ICU NURSE!!!! YAYYYYYY congrats to me, my hard work did paid off!!! I am kind of worried of getting approval for time off in September for my surgery. I've heard that once you start working as a new nurse, you will have to wait a year to take vacation. So someone told me that if I take time off, it will have to be "leave without pay"!!!!!! BS but if that's what it takes, I will do it. Because one thing for sure is that I am not postponing my surgery AGAIN!!!!
I need some suggestions ladies, how many weeks should I take off to heal? I was thinking 6 weeks, what do you think?

Recovery House????

Okay dolls, I'm having a difficult time finding a great, comfortable and affordable recovery house. I have about four recovery house in mind, but I'm still debating. I was looking at Upscale, Jacqueline Marrero, Healing Haven, Silhouette and the new recovery house that just opened in January -Deluxe.

I do not have enough information on Deluxe as yet, so I cant decide if I should include it in my top 5, this is all I got:

There's a Recovery House named ‘’DELUXE RECOVERY’’ that will be open in January, not associated with me but i'm helping them with tips in order for them to provide the patients with the correct attentions.

Ø Rooms with 1 bed: $85 dollars a day.
Ø Rooms with 2 beds: $75 dollars a day.
Ø Rooms with 3 beds: $65 dollars a day.
Ø If somebody who is not having surgery joins you, it's $50 dollars charge for that person

The prices include:
ü 3 meals
ü The room with bathroom inside
ü Nurses
ü Security
ü Roundtrip from the airport and back, also to the clinic for post-op appointments

I also heard great things about Real Recovery Aromnia. Any suggestions!!!!!! Thanks!

Still lurking*****

Can someone please send me some suggestions on the top three recovery house??? And did anyone asked Yily for a job letter to present to their supervisor, for time off??

Where is Yily, like really?????

Ok so my deposit has been sent to Yily's account, but I am constantly emailing her and I have not yet gotten a reply!!! Wassup with that? It's been a week since my first email and Yily has not email me back. I am really annoyed at this point!

Wish pics

Found a recovery house!!!

Ok so I decided I will be staying at real recovery armonia. They serve 3 meals a day and one snack! They also have wifi, ac, a doctor on board, great massages,etc. I also heard great things about them. I saw their pictures and the atmosphere looks really relaxing. Have anyone stayed there? I'm open to your reviews and insights!

Changing doctors*****from Yily to Cabral

For the last few weeks I have not been able to get in contact with Yily!!! I've sent my deposit a month ago and from since then is have not heard from her!!! Any one has an idea of what's going on????? I heard it has to do with a recent patient that died during surgery.

I have sent Yily numerous emails, I called the office- no answer and on top of that her IG page has been deleted!
I'm sick of this shit, I'm currently reaching out to Dr.Cabral! I love his work and I can better communicate with him via whatsapp! I will keep you guys updated

Has anyone heard from Yily???

What is going on? Has anyone heard from Yily? Is it true that a patient died under her? What is the news about CIPLA??? Someone please update me!!! This is crazy.

Changed doctors----Yily >>>Cabral

Ok ladies, I was fed up of hunting Yily down, so I decided to contact the king of barbies, Hector Cabral. Yes I know his has a bad reputation in burning people and a good amount of deaths under him, however I have been stalking some recent patients of his and he seems to be on top of his game! He quoted me on whatsapp 4,500 for bbl, Lipo, and tummy tuck! I then booked my appointment with his assistant the next day. I'm going the same day that I booked with Yily, September 31. I'm excited and I can't wait to look fabulous. I still have some research to do in regards the RH, supplies and finances. I have five months to go so I should be more than prepare! Let's hope nobody else dies in that damn clinic bc for hell sure I will completely cancel every thing!


Any one going between September 30- October 8? Inbox me and let know if you are willing to share a room. My choice of RH are between Armonia and upscale

Two more months until my Sx

Ok so it's been a while. Things are starting to fall in place. I have been communicating with Dr. Cabral a lot on whatsapp and getting things situated for the surgery. I'm going on Sept 30th and I'm doing a tummy tuck, bbl, and full lipo of the abdomen. I'm thinking about doing my arms and chin as well. I've been talking to Maria at the office and she suppose to be putting a job letter together for me so that I can take time off to do the surgery.

In regards to RH, I choose Upscale. The atmosphere looks so relaxing and I like the fact that they give you the 7th night free.

As soon as I get my letter I will purchase my ticket and make my deposit at the RH. That's when I know that it's going to be official!

God, I'm excited but I'm nervous at the same damn time. I can't stop visualizing myself in my new BOOTYlicious body. Damn it's gonna be turnt up! "Cabral Barbie under construction".

Any way feel free to leave comments or advice that u think I may need!!!!

Ticket brought

Ok so it's official now. I just brought my ticket today!!!!!! I'm flying with JetBlue and I made sure I applied for special Assitance when returning. The told price is $357. I have a one stop in Puerto Rico and should be arriving in DR at 2pm. I have plans to go straight to the clinic and get my lab work and paper work signed so that the next day it's all about the surgery. I'm excited and nervous at the same time, but I'm praying every single day and asking God for protection. I believe every thing with go well. When by the ending of August, I should have all my supplies together and a deposit to a RH. September 30th is only 10weeks away and it seems to be coming quickly.

Good news- Bad news- I NEED A SX BUDDY!!!!

Ok so the good news is that yesterday I got approved from my job to take 7 weeks off to do my surgery. Like I said I am a ICU nurse and I just started in April so I didn't had enough annual leave and sick leave, but I get to do leave without pay! I've been save from time I started so I know I will be good on the financial sides. I haven't yet purchase my supplies as yet, but I did made contact with surgeryiqueen on Facebook and saw that she has a set package for Cabral patients. I think it's about $290. It has everything you need, I mean everything. The other supplies I'm thinking about purchasing from Amazon. I'm suppose to be booking my RH tomorrow or next week.

Now the bad news is that 1). I don't have a surgery buddy or anyone to go with and 2). My mom is having a hissy-fit that I'm going to do surgery AGAIN!!!! I am still reaching out for a surgery buddy. Anyone interesting please inbox me. I'm going sept 29th and my Sx is on the 30th with Cabral. NOW, this thing with mom has me all emotional. That is why I didn't want to tell her in the first place. She worries too much. She told me that I have a great job and a young daughter, I have a great body and I don't need it. My body is OKAY, but it's not perfect. I will upload a photo of me. She even went to the extend to say I have she crying at her job bc she doesn't want me to go. I got sad and thought she idk what she will do if she lose me. I'm her first out of two and I don't want her on psych meds. Lol she is kind of dramatic n crazy. But for now my mind is made up and I've prayed and prayed and saw so many people went thru and made it! I know I can do that saw! All this research for nothing???? Nah, I'm GOING. I will update y'all some more later.

US Protection-important info if your traveling to DR

Ok ladies I have saw a few reviews stating to sign up with embassy.mi have looked into to it and it's a great idea. Embassy basically makes easier by informing you of important information to help in decision making, they contacted you in emergency situations, and they ask help family get in contact with you in case of an emergency. There is also tips on how to prepare yourself when travel to DR- regards exchange of money ( not walking with large amount of cash, getting travelers checks or what credit cards are accepted, etc) Be sure during you checkup that immunizations are up to date, there are certain immunizations that needs to be given well else you not be able to enter the country. Also just in case something happens to you, the hospitals only accepts cash if you have no insurance. There is a list of insurance posted in Embassy, that some hospitals accept in DR. please call your insurance company and check to see if you are covered. Lastly, please make at least 2 copies of your passport and itinerary and carry one with you and leave the other one with someone back at home. That way you are covered if your passport happens to get lost of stolen.

Oh did I mentioned that Embassy is free? Yes it is. It's better to be safe than to be sorry.

yes this sounds scary. You are going on my birthday! If anything bad happens....well, what about your beautiful child? I have to volunteer as your surgery buddy (but I don't want any) simply because I cannot bear the idea of this harming you. Have you found anyone to accompany you>?

Girl, Cabral just killed someone July 10th. Yily isn't my favorite either. The 2 of them are really really aggressive. Your life is worth more than putting it in the risk of someone that is KNOWN for "unusual deaths". I know you want the perfect body but perfection is when your child looks at you and says, "your so beautiful mommy" trust me you don't ever want to stop hearing those words. Google Cabral July 5th to the 12th she too was a mom. #justMyTwoCents

I've seen some good reviews on Dra Disla here. I don't know if that helps you, but I can see you're struggling with the choice of doctor. I hope you find the right one and I wish you the best! :)

Omg, I need to readup on it! Is that why she disappear?

I'm not sure, but it seems so.

At this point I think you mad a good decision, you will feel much more comfortable knowing that the doctor cares enough to communicate with you and anwers questions and needs. Good luck.
