Hello ALL!

I am a mom of 3 boys = twins 5yrs & a 2yr old. At this age of 33 yrs old no more kids for me for sure. From northern NJ and just returned from my 10 day family vacation down south. I drank all i wanted and eat all i wanted back to my exercise and clean food regaman as usual! Need Tummy Tuck, Implants, Lipo, & back flanks ASAP!
Honestly I have been heavy all my life as a young adult my weight has always been towards 160 to 180.
Recently got laid off from my job, and can't think of a better time to have this procedure w/ countless days of recovery! YAY Therefore I truly need to do some research on Dr's in DR $$ and if i am truly lucky I can link up with someone whose going soon for moral support! Please Help!

Hi there,

Check out this thread in the forum with ladies looking for surgery buddies (most going to the DR). I hope this helps!

Please keep us posted on your journey.

Hi! I m going to DR in January with Dr. Javier Baez Angles. If you want you can quote with him, they respond very fast and are very professionals.

Hey Thanks! I did check him out but no go! He's out of Santiago and I rather near the capital SDQ airport (i think its a correct code). As my in-laws family can come by and visit me..

HOLD up!

Well back to clean food eating and Jillian Micheal's workout for me!..:) Day 1 and OW so sore!..(punk)
Also doing my research and I have two doctors in which might be my final decision, Dr. Robles or Dr. Almonte can't decide even though I think they are associates. Nevertheless this world throws curve balls, So i now have a big big batt!
I wanted to get my surgery like the end of November but my man (yes my man he is the dad of all my boys still we have not wedd maybe after the surgury! (wink)) sorry off track!
Anyway during the holidays his industry is on overload and he even works on Sundays but of course this year they are asking him to start late November til early Jan 2014. Sooooo I wanted to go back to school for my second degree ;0( (tear) in January 2014 which i have already been excepted NOOOOO... I guess I must figure something out!
:( your welcome! but did you asked him if he operates in SD? i think he does. I ve also heard good comments about this doc https://www.facebook.com/Dr.FernandezGoico good luck!

Lesley (Dr. Almonte assistant) suggested I get a physical, but some doctors will not except me since I have no insurance HELP LORD PLEASE!!
On a side note my old passport arrived in the mail Tuesday just waiting for my renewed one, "great news", since its only 12 days away!!!

** Also the messages that a tummy tuck candidate must get when returning and tubes are out are called " Lymphatic drainage massages"" DAMN THAT SOUNDS PAINFUL..;0( well groupon.com has some deals on Spas so I'll ask about that.. TATA babes!

Great Great news for me!! #Passportcheck#HEMOglobin test checked

Rec'd my passport yesterday!!!! So let that be a lesson for all girls leaving the country last mint. (renewal pkg sent via regular mail Dec. 29th, paid extra expedited fee $60.00, arrived Jan. 17) total 20days!
OK #Hemoglobin journey done I literally called all physicians in my area, (but no one would take me b/c NO insurance) so God sent me an ANGEL..lol !! I managed to find one whom provided me with free prescription and set me up @ their partner lab place. She wanted to go a step further and prescribed 3 blood exams including #HEMO for $75.00!!!
Side note almost finished my Healthcare class final exam on 1/23. Also had a successful meeting with a nonprofit org. business starter #networking#meetthisRichBiotcch#inthemaking!!
Hello! I cannot tell how scared I was at the thought of surgery. I ad never even had stitches before, ever. I am three days post now and so far my recovery has been SO MUCH EASIER than I ever anticipated. I know everybody is different, and I know that I'm not even close to being out of the woods yet, but I do know that I'm in an excellent mood and I am so happy with everything. The waiting is 10x worse than the procedure and recovery. Good luck and don't stress! Things will go great :)

@mensomom. Thank you for those comforting words. I'm so scared and anxious at the same time and is because someone I knew died in DR after sx with Dr. Contreras I believe and she left behind a husband and three kids. I trust my doctor but is just everything attacking my mind at the same time. Smh. Not a good feeling.

WOW you are so sweet and a breath of fresh air!! No really an excellent point of view THANKS!! I wish you the best in ur fast and healthy recovery!

RUMOR ALERT!!

The rumor is after you send your deposit the communicate stops or slow down!!
With that being said my family and my in laws (whom are from DR) don't want me to have this surgery let along in DR..(cray cray). So 5 days ago when I was at the doctors office the nurse was questioning my blood work request, so I explained to her why and what I am about to have done. And even offered to call her and she can speak to my Dr. assistant Lesley overseas herself on my phone. But no answer at all, 2 calls no answer no call back super embarrassed! OK but if i am having surgery and my fam calls and no answer and no call back that will not and can not fly with them....
Good luck sweetie ...

Thank you so much! super super scared....omg

They clam I have gone to far and they thought I wasn,t seriuos about this! They don't want me to go especially since I will be flying alone. My mom stresses the fact of scamers and fakers in the cyber world and how anyone can fake a profile throgh here! And honestly the more they and I talk about it I sould stupid and it gets fucking real @@@%&%& So the only way I rec,d their blessing was to have my man"s family member his aunt whom lives i Dominican Republic ut there to be my to accompany me from the airport in

I am@ Soraya recovery house!!! Day 2

Well were do I begin still recovering from surgery day2. My results are a gift from heaven she is VERY skilled at what she does honestly. I am not just speaking about myself but others as well. This doctor has not been exposed as she should. When I tell you my waist, back and tummy tuck is small that is no joke.
My first day she hugs and kisses me, she completely gave me her undivided attention even though there is a lot of traffic at her door, and she just gave birth a month ago. WOW.. This superwomen Dra. Almonte gave me everything on my wish list and more she did extra lipo on my inner thighs and a tiny bite on my arms. But before that she even suggested getting fat transfered to fill out my whole on my backside. Eventhough I declined the gesture was amazing.
Back to day1 it was meet and greet her assistant Lesley and Raqueal took me all over the building for multiple exams, they are the biggest sweethearts u will ever meet..like ever ever ever..
That same night Almonte draw on me and meet my family member that spent 2nights in the clinic with me. After that day 2 surgery @ 6 am mission completion...later babes to exhausted to continue!!!!
Yay can't wait for pics I go feb 23

OMG its like been 21 days since my surgery!!!

Well it sure has been a long time since my last update, but my name has changed to busy busy!!..lol
I don't even where to start..lol
After surgery I guess I was sent to Soraya's Recovery House, the house will deff make your recover and assist you with every need. They have good meals cooked and 24 hrs nurse on staff (which you will need believe me). The lipo on my back was fire fire fire "NO JOKE". The house has two bedrooms + the nurses room, bathroom, kitchen, living room and small size balcony area that's very cool. My roommate was a lovely lady name Sandra she is on realself.com she honestly was a great emotional support towards my recovery... During this journey I have met amazing people with excellent stories (i know this cuz I love to ask questions). Lastly the recovery house is in a good neighborhood considering another country and near stories, which me and Sandra visited often during our latest days. Ow my last day @ recovery house Dra Almonte gave permission to remove my drain so the owner volunteered to remove it, which I was scared as hell! But recorded it so I will post it soon.. chio for now more pix comming very soon,,
Wow great results hope your feeling better and everything is well. A friend NewBootyPlz and I are in talks with Dr.Robles now we want to go over and become beautiful barbies as well...:) I've been hearing a lot of good things about Dr. Almonte as well do you have any updated pics so we can see to see how your healing would really appreciate it has been all of you wonderful women on RS that have been helping us in our decision. So thank you for all of your info.

Thank you! My swelling is less and less about to reach a month.

23 days in and its mentally and physically better and better!!

Well back home and Thank God I am stronger and stronger everyday! Coming home was big re-adjustment back to reality. (My man/kids was so excited 2 see me and I them we practically cried)..#TEAR# so cute! My home was destroyed and my man said he'll never be a single father again..lol stupid!
As you see in my pics I am looking the bomb and healing just fine. I live in Northern NJ aka Hudson County so massages range from $75 -$110 each (we are required at least 10X) so the receipts adds up. But Thank God my mom-in-law got the hookup with her friend that comes to your house to conduct massages she gave me a great deal for 10pkgs for $400.00. So if your in my area hit me up ill pass the info.
I love love my results BUT since getting these massages I've been having more time to be without my FAJA and when I sit I have little rolls. I mean maybe its just me being sick in the head and its not all that bad or what. But damn I did pay $6150.00 so I feel some type of way! I reached out to my Doctors team and sent pics they expressed to me that I am still at the recovery stage so I should wait a few more weeks and drink Pineapple & cucumber juice with a healthy diet... I'll post pics so you girls can tell me what you girls think!
You look outstanding! My sx is in 1.5 weeks with her, happy healing!
Reply
I think you need to give it time. You look amazing, but a lot of people tend to swell from flying and you just had surgery. So relax, heal, message and you'll be just fine and soon enjoying that new hot body!!!
Reply
Your probably right I am going to give it some time (well I have no choice..lol) I also sent pixs to ask a doctor so fingers crossed.

Drum Roll Please!! Drainage removal video... (a bit graphic lol)
