4 month update. Mommy Makeover that incl. BBL, BA and TT with Yily De Los Santos- Dominican Republic, DO

I am planning to go to Dominica Republic in Dec...

I am planning to go to Dominica Republic in Dec 2013. My Doctor is Fatima Almonte. I have 3 kids and that made me get stretch marks on my stomach. I am really looking forward to my surgery but I don't want to go alone. if anyone from Canada or US is going to Dominica in Dec pls let me know so we can meet up and go together.

now am confused

I need help choosing between Dr Fatima Almonte and Dr Yily. Dr Almonte quoted me 6200 for everything including recovery home. Dr Yily quoted me 5,850 but it doesn't include recovery home. Which doctor out of the 2 is better at giving hour glass shape?

Officially booked my flight

I have officially booked my flight for November 11. I have switched my doctor from Fatima to Yily. I want the hour glass shape and Yily has been the most recommended one so i chose her. My RH has also been booked. yay new body here i come........
@sunkysd ur absolutely correct, great advice! But first things first! Welcome and congratulations to u wnthrglshpe! Read my blog.....take it frm me, i had the works no scar and sllbi ndded was a bbl aggressive lipo and fat transfer! You can get the same results and SAVE MONEY by just getting bbl, lipo etc. Its solely up to u but get some MADERA CREAM for your scar and enjoy ur nu YOU W MONEY N YOUR POCKET, sweaty! Were u told to gain weight? CONGRATULATIONS!
Reply
welcome! i really think that you don't need a tummy tuck. if you get liposculture ,BA, and a bbl you will look fabulous minus the scar. you should take a ooh at some of the ladies on real self that are much bigger than you and had liposculputuring done. they look like they had tummy tucks because of the aggressive lipo . well whatever you decide to do i wish the best of luck through out you're journey.
Reply
Thanks hun. The only reason why am doing TT is because i have bad stretch marks. It looks like i got scratched by à tiger lol. I know not all the stretch marks will go but atleast my stomach will be more présentable.

NERVOUS AND EXCITED AT THE SAME TIME

My surgery date is fast approaching and am nervous. I am scared about the recovery and how long its going to take. got my blood work done and my hemoglobin is 11.9 so am taking 35mg iron pills twice a day now to increase my hemoglobin before my surgery. I cant wait for my new body. I have been thinking of doing surgery since last year and am happy that I am finally going to get a new body.
Soo ur goin to yily cuz think almonte won't give u the look ur goin 4 im confused as well they say yily is soo busy Robles qoute includes rh yily n almonte don't help let me know pls why the change
Reply
I changed to Yily because she knows how to sculpt better. Dr Almonte doesn't have a lot of reviews and stuff so that's why I changed

Surgery

I got to CIPLA at 7am. We waited to get my EKG done in Yily's office as I have done all the other test the previous day. I went to surgery around 11am and came out around 4. I was able to get all my procedures done which I am happy about. Yily came to mark me up and I showed her my wish pic, but she laughed in a good way saying I dont have enough fat lol. I took the blue pill and was wheeled away. I woke up during surgery saying I cant breath or not enough oxygen, something like that. I felt the pressure when they were doing my BA but no pain. I havent seen what I look like yet as I am lying in bed fresh off surgery. My leg was numb from the waist down I guess from the Epidural and I am shivering and cold eventhough I have like 4 blankets covering me. The nurse was so nice to feed me veggie soup. I am now feeling the pressure of the BA and TT, not so much of the Lipo. It feels like I did 1000 cruches in my belly and chest. Am feeling better now and cant wait to recover. I am gland this chapter of my life is over and I just have to work on maintaing my results and living a healthy lifestyle. I will post the after pictures soon but in the meantime here is my before right before I went into surgery. Thank you all for your prayers and support. Oh yea 1 more Jocelyne from Daisy Recovery is the best. She actually prayed for me before they wheeled me away. I totally recommend her. She is so sweet.
Good luck with your recovery. You're probably looking fab. Can't wait to see post op pics. I'm going to yily too and I'm staying with Jocelyn at daisys RH. She definitely is a sweetheart and makes me feel comfortable. I'm glad the preop tests only took 30 min because I will probably be having that done the same morning of surgery. I don't want to have surgery late in the day so you just made me happy :) I'll be heading there in January. Did you travel alone?

Happy to hear you had a blessed surgery, keep us posted on your recovery doll!

Glad your surgery when well, thanks for taking the the time to give us an update while your recovering. My biggest fear is awaking up during surgery I'm sure I would have a panic attack.

Recovery is the business

I am so sore that's its not even funny. I just want all this to be done already so I can enjoy my new body. I was fitted into a Faja this morning and it wasn't as bad as I thought I guess because am use to wearing shapewears. I am stiff, sore and cant really stand up straight but I know I will be smiling once am healed.
Thanks girl. Yes she is. So happy I took a chance with her.

Yes I travelled alone

Feeling better

Today I feel so much better. I was able to stand up straighter, brushed my whole teeth, wiped myself and drained my whole blood without feeling too tired. The multivitamins and working around works alot. I am draining fine so hopefully when I go in for my check-up on Monday it will be removed. I start my massages today and I will be sure to take some pain killers as I do not want to feel it. Hopefully the massage will speed up my recovery. I am yet to see my body but when I do I will post pics.

Sorry for the typos. I am typing from my phone
You had a great foundation to start with so your results should be fabulous!

Massage

I got my first massage today and let me just say it wasnt as bad as I expected. I felt minimal pain which am happy for. I guess by reading other people's blog I was expecting excruciating pain but it didnt happen. Each day am getting better, walking straighter and doing more stuff. I am happy I got the guts to go after what I wanted. After the massage, she applied paraffin wax to my back and stomach which is a nice touch. My checkup is on Monday so hopefully my drain will be coming out then too.
how is it shopping for pants? have been shopping yet? how different is it from before
Reply
I havent shopped for pants yet. I am still recovering and shopping is still far in the future. I have tights that I can still wear in the meantime

Congratulations, Blessings to you and thanks for sharing. I will be there on Feb 4th with Dr Yily. cant wait!!! The clock is ticking....

ONE WEEK ANNIVERSARY

Today marks one wk that Yily has made me one of her dolls. I still have my drain in but its all good. I am on the last hook of my first stage faja already. Dr.ANA practically did it after my checkup yesterday and it wasnt too painful till I got my massage and tried to put the faja in the last hook, that's when I wanted to pass out and the drain site doesnt help the matter too much. Anyway am feeling better with each day. I leave DR in 2 days and back to my hectic life with kids and school. I cant wait to see my full results, just in time for summer.
You look amazing!! Congrats to you... Will you be posting more pics?? I'd love to see:)
Reply
You do in fact look great! Congrats ! How r u finding sleeping on your back with ur bbl? I'm 15 days post op bbl n ba with Duran and while she told me not to worry I'm freaking out cuz I have no choice but to sleep on my back (yes with boppy n pillow under thighs but still feel like I'm flattening my booty :/
Reply
Lol I feel the same way too. I tried to sleep on my side yesterday night with pillows lined up but still was uncomfortable. Cant sleep on my belly either cause TT and BA. I am stuck on my back also and I think thats what am stuck with until my implants drop
Reply

Finally Home

I left DR around 3pm today and am now just getting home around 11pm. The flight connecting to Toronto was the worst. The airport is too big and I didnt take wheelchair services so guess who was tired and fustrated?me lol. In the plane going to Toronto, I thought I was gonna explode. My faja kept digging into my sides, etc. I was thinking in my head can I please get home already so I can finally take this shit off and shower. Finally got home and the first thing I did was shower after 8 days of not showering and lotioning my body. It felt amazinggggg. So my stay in DR in general was l8vely and peaceful. Now am back to life with k8ds and shit but oh well thats my life. Oh yea and a lil advice to the future girls pack lightly cause honestly u wont be needing anything more than
Maxi dresses 3 to 4
pads
toiletries
wipes
t_shirt to wear underneath ur faja
Vitamins
apps on ur phone like magic jack, whatsapp, bbm, etc
blanket
something to help you pee and lastly
bobby pillow
thats all cause u will be indoors most times.
So your drain was removed the morning you left or ? That is my main concern getting the drain removed while I am in DR. I made plans on staying the entire 14 days and make sure Dr. Yily would remove the drains then come home and be a nervous wreck and have to deal with the kids and etc.

Happy Healing!

SCAR

Here is a pic of my scar so far. As you can also see, one of my breast is droopy. Dont know what I can do. I still have lumps by my waist line, hopefully all this problem will resolve itself with time. The white stuff by my scar is the antibiotic powder.

thanks for the update love your looking smashing damn bet you cant wait to be all healed up! happy healing babe remember focus on recovering ok dont try being wonderwoman let others help as well xxx cant wait to see your ass lol xx

You look awesome! I need to see the booty too! I love your results but you were so small, why did you decide to go with a TT? I'm curious because my stomach looks like your before (probably bigger since the weight gain) but I don't want a TT.
Reply
Hey, the booty pics are coming soon. I did a TT cause I had lots of stretch mark from having my kids so thats why. Stretch marks are the devil lol.
Reply

Second stage faja

I finally got my order from classicshapewear.com. I ordered the Salome liposuction garment with holes in xs. It was a struggle to put this on but I managed. There is only one set of hook so I dont know how long I can wear it for before I have to go a size smaller hopefully.

Measurements

I took my measurements this morning, both with and without my garment. The measurements are the same.
Bust: 35
Waist: 24.5
Hips: 37
Weight: 134lbs.

The lowest my waist has ever been in my adult life is 27inches and that's when I was 127lbs last year. Now am 134lbs and my waist is 24.5 thats unreal to me. My waist was probably 30inches before surgery so that's a good 5plus inches and counting that Yily took off. Am so happy. I hope my waist can get to 23 inches and I will be the happiest girl alive. I also want my bust to be 37 inches so I can officially claim the hour glass shape. Hopefully in 2 months my bust will grow 2 more inches.
You look great! Ahhh! I'm so excited for you!

Looks amazing! Congrats! Was it an extended, normal or circumferencial tummy tuck? Did she also do [whole body? Aggressive?] Lipo?

HEY SWEETY, I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU SHARING YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH US. NOT MANY GIRLS DO THE SAME. SOME ARE SELFISH AND SOME DONT CARE FOR IT. I THINK ITS IMPORTANT TO HELP EACH OTHER. GOD BLESS YOU FOR THAT. SO MY QUESTION IS THAT I WAS SORD OF CONFUSED. I READ THROUGH YOUR WHOLE PAGE. I SEE YOUR DOCTOR IS FATIMA ALMONTE BUT YOU POSTED PICS OF YILYS OFFICE AND YOU SAID YILIVERSARY SO IM NOT SURE WHICH DOCTOR YOU ENDED UP DOING IT WITH. I WANT AN AMAZING BOOTY AND FLAT STOMACH. I LOVED YOUR RESULTS. XOXOZ

I ended up going with Yily. I already started the review with Dr Fatima so I wasnt able to change the name to Yily once I changed my doctor. So Dr Yily did my surgery for me on Nov 12 2013.
Reply
would it be possible to see what your scars look like and your waist/hip in general. I would like to look into DR as well for TT/LBL but I am a HUGE (tall and built guy) and worry that they Dominicans might not be able to handle someone my size, etc.

My BA scar

Yesterday marked my 5 weeks since surgery. I started work again and am back to 5hrs of sleep because I have school also on top of my 3 kids. oh well that is my life for now. My BA scar is getting better and with time it wouldn't be obvious as it was done through my nipple. I have attached some pics.
Wow! You can hardly tell were the incision are. Did you use scar gel or sheets? and if so what ? so I can get some for me I'm having sx June 9th. I remember you said something about one of your breast being droopy. Did that adjust over time?
Reply
I have a question about going to the DR for surgery. I've been doing a ton of research and came across the state departments travel advisory for DR..well it wasn't good. My question is did you feel safe while you were there? is the area you are getting your surgery at and the recovery houses in safe areas? its got me quite concerned!

Merry Christmas and 6 wks update

Merry Christmas to my RS family. About 3 weeks ago when I got my Salome liposculpture faja from Classicshapewear, I also ordered the zipper waist cincher in xs. Long story short the waist cincher didn't fit me at all. It didn't even wrap around me at the time. So this morning am like let me try this cincher again cause it bothered me a lot when it didn't fit, guess what guys IT FITS ME yay. It took a lot of sweating and cussing but I got it on. I am so happy and my waist now is 22 with the cincher on and 23.5 without it. This is my Christmas gift and am happy I don't have to return the cincher.

my 2 compression garments

HI LOVE, I WANT TO ORDER MY FAJA FROM CLASSIC SHAPE WEAR LIKE YOU DID. IM ON THE WEBSITE BUT I WANTED TO ASK YOU FIRST. I FEEL LIKE MY MEASUREMENTS WILL BE SIMILAR TO YOURS WHEN IM POST. MY QUESTION IS SHOULD I GET A SMALL OR EXTRA SMALL. I HAVE THICK LEGS. IM 5'1 AND WEIGHT 135 NOW N WILL BE ABOUT 138 WHEN I GO IN. I MIGHT DO INNER THIGHS NOT SURE YET BUT THE WEBSITE SAIDS THEY RUN SMALL.. I DUNNO WHAT TO DO SO I FIGURED I ASK YOU FOR ADVISE.
Reply
Hey girl, I will wait until after the surgery to order the Faja mainly because you don't know what your size will be post op. I was put into a small marena faja post op then 2 weeks after I came home was when I started wearing the xs in salome faja.
Reply
We weigh around the same so am pretty sure the xs will fit you. It's rly tight at first but it gets more comfortable as time passes by.

2 MONTHS YILIVERSARY

I have reached my 2 months mark and nothing has really changed except 1/2 a inch off my waist. I am still waiting to fluff . I got this bad cut on my stomach that is not healing due to no air getting to it. I don't know what to do because I can't go without wearing my garment. The wound is open, that's why I have a bandage on my tummy. I have decided to challenge myself with the squat challenge and get a 20 inch waist. I give myself until March to do this. I have attached 2 pics. Enjoy
You look great!!!

I was telling someone who had a tummy tuck done here that you have to do waist training to get the curves..you can't just think you get a tummy tuck and thats it..youbhave to exercise and eat well and waist train...cant wait for my day

Yes thats true. Wearing ur waist training will keep the swelling down and u get better shape that way.

My 3 months anniversary is fast approaching. I can't believe that, seems just like yesterday. I feel stingy sensation when I don't have my garment on after sitting for too long. I am starting to exercise little by little. My lipo'ed area in my lower back has softened up. My waist is now 22 inches with or without garments. I am going to see if I can get to 20 inches.
Hey I was wondering how your breasts are feeling now? I am debating between high profile and moderate profile, I'm going to need a lift with mine though. Also have you gotten nipple sensation back yet? That's one thing that kind of worries me, I don't want to lose it but I know it needs to be cut. :(

3 months update

Wow I can't believe that I am here. Who would have taught that I will actually go after what I want. Words can't describe how happy I am with my results. Everyone that sees me, always compliment me. They think I work out cause it looks so natural. Thank you DR Yily for giving me the tiny waist that I wanted. My measurements are 32DD-22-38. With or without garment. I have decided to continue wearing my garments to sleep so I can maintain my results. I do need to start working out though but am just too lazy.
Great transformation u go girly! Congratulations!
