May 16 with Yily - Loving my new body!!! *2.5 month post-op update with pics*

I’m 31 years old New Yorker with three kids ,...

I’m 31 years old New Yorker with three kids , who I love to death but did some serious damage on the body. I want from Dammmmmmm to oh damn! Lol So, I been wanting a TT, BL and BBL for about three years, so this year I decided I needed to do something about it.

I gain a lot of weight after I had my daughter but I guess my mind was playing tricks on me because the person in the mirror was not the person I saw in my head. I mean I knew I had gain weight but I just didn’t want to believe it was THAT much weight! So reality hit me one day when my hubby caught my off guard and took a picture of me ( I never let him take a picture of me willingly) Anyway, I saw who I really was and wanted to cry. I was shock that I had allowed myself to get that huge. My heaviest was 228lbs. On July 13 2011 I started a high protein low fat diet. It was torture at first but then I began seeing the results and kept up with me.

Below is my diet menu.

Morning
Oatmeal
Protein shake (Muscle milk)
Banana

Or
Hard Boil egg
Feta cheese
1 slice of whole wheat bread
Protein Shake

Lunch
Chicken or Tuna with a Salad (No Mayo)
Dressing was a little bit of salt, pepper, Lemon and a drizzle of OVOO.
Fruit


Dinner
Steam Veggies or Quinoa
Grilled Chicken or Steak
Small Salad

In between meals If I got hungry I will have a handful of nuts or a fruit salad.
I also started walking everyday for 30 minutes and make sure I drank 8 cups of water.


I manage to lose 98 lbs but I had a lot of loose skin. I look good with clothes on, but undress is another story. Spanx have become my best friend.

I started researching plastic surgeons and went to about 4 different consultations. I wanted to come to DR but husband was against it. He is Dominican so he has heard the horror stories. So I schedule a TT & BL with a PS on Long Island but in the back of my head I know that I wasn’t be happy with the results. I came across RS and was in awe with DR. YilY work! Her sculpting is on point and let me not get started on how tiny she leaves girl’s waist. I talk to my husband and show him her work and he was like Damn she is good lol So we told me to go to DR because he felt if I was going to go through all the pain of a surgery might as well go with someone who was going to give me the curves I want.

I email Yily in the beginning of March and it took her about a week to give me a quote. In the meantime I was talking RS and my email like crazy!! I then felt in Love with Duran work but I was also in love with Yily, I was confused on whom to go with but in the end I chose Yily because I love how she sculpts the body. Don’t get me wrong Duran is on point with her work but I felt that Yily would be the better choice for the results I wanted.

When I finally got a date from Yily for May 16 and I literally scream when I saw my surgery date!

I went ahead and pay off my surgery. I put the...

Here a few pics of cipla

Few pics of cipla

So far what I seem the place is very clean. Everyone wear gloves and the nurses and staff are very nice. Yira and Theresa are both very cool and helpful : )

Day 2

Hey everyone wanted to share a quick update am feeling ok today Thursday and Friday was he'll for me. My tt pain is not so bad what is hurting is the lipo felt like I run a million miles and then got hit with a truck! Am staying at Yasmin recovery house she and her staff have been amazing. And her nurse is worth her weight in gold. Yasmin went to the clinic after my surgery and was there in the morning to see how I was doing if u still need a place to stay I highly recommend her. I will post a better review later

Day 3

Am feeling a lot better today! Yesterday, I was regretting my decision, I had buyers remorse. I was in so much damn pain. My butt felt like I was lying on a rock and the top of my stomach were she repair my muscles were on fire. I try to get up but I had no one ounce of strength I had to have someone help me get up to use the bathroom. Today I woke up feeling way better. I'm able to get in and out of bed by myself and I have been walking. I been taking motrin for the pain and that has been helping me. It's gets better everyday. The 1st two days are hard, everything hurts, I was sore, uncomfortable and dizzy. I will update my full experience once I have enough energy to do it : )

Day 3

Here a few before and after. The after look a little weird because am still walking and standing hitch over from my tt but I can see a difference

Few more

After am still hutch but I see a difference

Like what I see so far

I like what I see so far yily is a master at what she does but her attitude need some work. She is nice at first but turn off the nice switch in a minute. I got 4 different quotes and what I hit her off on what up app she gave me a price well after surgery she Came to me told me I own her 1g this was after I had paid my balance in full. Yira never updated that info. Don't get me wrong yira is nice but they are very unorganized So anyway we want back and forth and she said she told me during surgery I own her more and I said ok. Well I don't remember this I was drugged up!!! Hello! Anyway I told her I don't own u anything I show her our chat from the what up ap and she got mad said ok fine and left with an attitude. So she should be mad at her assistant not me. While I do think her work is great she needs to change her attitude. Anyways I like what I see because I had a pancake butt and now I see some butty

I was wrong about Yasmin " recovery house" stay away!!!!

Hey first I want to say I'm sorry to anyone whom I recommended this place to the first 3 days were great,now things are real bad and unsanitary. I will do a full update soon.

Yasmin "refugee camp"

She promise us only four girls, now there more then that! She got greedy and her service went downhill. One night we had to wait till 9:30 to eat dinner, and she ask us do you want coco peoples, you're hungry? Please stay away from here
The best thing you can do for a peaceful recovery is to stay at the florida hotel, Hire a nurse(I can recommend one if you like) and a taxi service to pick up from airport and drive you around(Bambinotaxi.com)

The last straw that broke the camel's back!

So ok I been trying to just suck it because I don't know anyone here and where am going to go, I can't barely walk let along carry my luggage. However, today Yasmin took us to get our nails done(after asking her a few times ) and JaZZbelle drain broke and she had fluid all over her. We ask her to take us to CIPLA asap and she said let's go to my house first then I take her there since my house is closer. At this point I got pissed and told her you need to take her now!! She told me am running this, I said no, you're not a doctor take her now! We paid you money so you can help us recover and she is in pain. Finally she agree but the two other girls that were with us didn't see this since they were at the food court getting something to eat, she goes over to them acting like she was concern, with her fake puppy eyes and said "guys am really worried about her I think am going to take her to Cipla first and drop you guys after, ok" Am like are you damn serious! I had to scream at you to do it. While we were driving she said I wonder what it is but is not big deal happens all the time! I told her is probably from that hard ass bed you have as sleeping in the refugee camp. She stay quiet. Well mrs. thing is dropping it like it hot at the korake bar and instead of helping the new girls out of surgery she has her stepdad sleeping in the kitchen floor to "look after us". We ask them for our money back for the days we have left because we all decide to go to a hotel and they starting screaming at us and saying now. They are treating us like princesses! These people are nuts!!! Pictures don't lies ladies, please don't let this girl convince you. She has a real self profile so she can leave comments with her info. She also got kicked out of duran group because she was posing as a patient so that she can get send FB msg with her info to the girls in the group.

please don't mind any typos am heated so am not checking for typos.

Nurse's info

The nurse name is Morgery Gil she is a sweet heart. She doesnt speak a lot of english but if you translate the msg in spanish she should be able to replied back.

Her email is manyorisgil@hotmail.com and her phone is 809-372-0731 cell phone is 809-277-5528.

The girl that does our massages for us is great. She only charges $25 and comes to you. Her info is Brunilda Garcias brunildagarcia@hotmail.com cell is 809-846-3466.

Florida hotel

we are at the florida hotel now, very nice place. I'm so glad I'm out here now. The bet thing you can do for a good recovery is to stay at a nice hotel, hire a nurse for a few days and driver. Better then any recovery house.

a little more

Hey girls. I just wanted to say that DR, its a nice place and I don't regret caming here for surgery. Im just mad at myself for not better planning my stay so that I would have avoid all this crap. I'm still swollen but I like what I see so far. Dr. Yily really is great at what she does but her staff needs to get better organize so that they aren't any issues with money. I don't think it's her fault, I think that there is a lack of communications.
I don't think the after care at Yily is bad either. You don't see YIly(unless you want to but you have to wait into she is out of surgery) She has a Dr. that works with her and she does all your after care. Be sure you see her at least four days after you surgery. She is very nice and very caring.

We told her about what happen at Yasmin's and she was piss! She called Yasmin and went off on her. Yasmin was trying to say we were lying and that my friend agree to sleep in the living room and even ask her to put up the curtains! She told Yira and Teresa to make sure none of Yily patient ever stay there.

Plaza Florida Suites Hotel info

I been getting a lot of msg on hotel florida info.

Driver, cooking lady , hotels fees etc

Ok, if you need a driver am using Juan from Bambitaxi.com. Very nice and reliable and his rates are fair. He charges $35 to pick you up from the airport. He will also drive you around if you need to.

If you need a nurse:
The nurse name is Morgery Gil she is a sweet heart. She doesnt speak a lot of english but if you translate the msg in spanish she should be able to replied back.

Her email is manyorisgil@hotmail.com and her phone is 809-372-0731 cell phone is 809-277-5528. She also has a FB account search for her by her email address.

IF you need food.

Juan the taxi driver maid also cooks.His maid name is Migelina. She charges $15 a day to cook for you but you have to supply the food. Breakfast at hotel florida is includes and it's was pretty good. Lots of fruits, toast, cereal, eggs, ham, cheese and fresh squeeze juices and they charge $130 a day for a master suite, it has two beds and two sofa beds. A Jr. suite has one bed and one sofa bed, I believe the price is. $110. You can also have the from office order you food and they will deliver it to your room.

Another hotel is plasa del sol. I stay there my night before surgery, its clean and has a/c but it's outdated. They charge $45 a night an breakfast is included. I don't know if the breakfast is good because I didn't eat there.

email from Yasmin

Am putting this out there so you can see and make an education self. If something is to good to be true it probably is. I'm not getting anything out if so whether you decide to go there or not is ultimately up to you. I just don't want anyone to have to go thru all of this because I was beyond stress instead of recovering.

Here an Jasmin email telling me I had a room and there will be only three other girls there.

Best way to get your date with Yily

am feeling better and loving what I see so far. Girls she is worth it!!! My husband jaw dropped when he saw me at the airport. I may take some pics of me today so you can see the difference, am in awe : )

I saw Yily the last day. She was super sweet to me and wanted to check me before I left. We had a long talk and she explain a lot of things to me and apologize about the error with the money. She says it's jus so much going on, she has her business to run, she receives around $500 email a day (show me her cell phone and it was true). Plus she still has to make time for her family.

She says the best way for you to get you date is to call or email ( I think calling the office is better) and tell them the day you want. If they have the date then tell them you want it and send the $500 deposit( I went to chase and deposit it her account) Keep the deposit slip and that's your confirmation. Bring it with you the day of your surgery.
Then once you make the deposit call back a few days and ask them to send you a confirmation email . The reason to wait a few days to ask for a confirmation email is because Yily is the only one who has access to the chase account and she has to figure out who gave a deposit.

I also have a massage done by a different women the last two days and I really think she is so much better then the first one. She charges $20 each or if you buy a package of 10 it's $15 each. You can email her here(this is not her email address but someone checks it for her since she not to good with the computer) socialmisfit55@facebook.com

Also if you need someone to drive you around, to the supermarket, cipla, to the pharmacy etc this guys charges $300 pesos per hour (about $7.50 usd) His name is Oliver from Oliver Taxi Services 829-330-9843

list of the US equivalent of the meds

here the list of the US equivalent of the meds Yily wants you to get. If you can't get them all here, is cheaper to get them at a pharmacy in DR then buying them from them.

-Heparina de 40 mg: Had to buys these in DR. I purchase them in a pharmacy in DR. They were around $15 for a box of 2, so you will have to purchase 4 boxes. You can also ask your dr. to prescribe you blood thinning shots.

-Clavulin 1GR: amoxicillin is antibiotic get them prescribe from your doctor.

-DICLOFENACO 50MG: Motrin buy the strongest dose (got them at walmart) I had viocidin from a prior surgery and I took 1 every 8 hours for the first two days.

-OMEPRAZOL 20 MG: prilosec omeprazole(got it in walmart)

-VITAMINA C 500 MG: Vitamin C

-Sulfato Ferroso: sulfuric acid (got them at walmart)

Y ácido fólico 10 mg: Folic acid ( got them at walmart)

-TROMBOCIL CREMA: Arnica cream (got it at amazon.com) This is for bruising however, I purchase this cream when I got home yesterday at Walgreens and being applying it 3 times a day to my bruises and they are about 75% gone.

Update with pics

I love what I see so far. I'm style bruise, swollen and walking with a bit hutch over but I do see a different from my before pics. Yily told me I won't see my real result into around the three month mark but I'm extremely satisfy. When I walked out at the airport and my husband saw me his jaw dropped! He was in awe lol!

Breast

I also got a breast lift with implants from Yily. They are still very swollen and look huge but Dr. says they will be a full C once the swelling goes down.

Nurse's info & Pricing, taxis & masseuse and hotels

I been getting a lot of msg asking for the nurse's info is on my blog but here it is again. The nurse I usedname is Morgery Gil she is a sweet heart. She does everything for you, from helping you brush your teeth, washing your faja, helping you eat, to helping you with a sponge bath the first days. She doesnt speak a lot of english but if you translate the msg in spanish she should be able to replied back. Her rates are $1500 dominican for two hours or around $37.50 for two hours. In my honest opinion, you don't her there the whole time. I would have her come 2 hours in the morning and two hours in the evening for the first 3 days. After that you might want her to come 2 hours a day.

annoyed and a list of things you should take with you

Please don't listen to this loca Lanegra, she on here to bash Yily but she is posting info on other Dr. Yily hasn't had any gross negligence on her meaning no death, loss of limbs, loss of organ etc. If you're so scared of a dr. then keep in moving and go on find one that you can trust. Seriously, this women needs to get a life. Crap likes this makes me not even want to come back on here.

Things that I used on my trip:
Baby wipes
All you meds
white men tank tops(the longer the better)
neospirin
Slippers
gauze
medical tape
Chux
leggins
3-5 maxi dresses
2 nice comfortable shirt
comfy shoes( I wore my toms)
comfortable pj's
I packed way to much clothes and didn't end up using most of it.

1 month post op

Hey Girls! Here a pic of me 1 month post op. The swelling has gone done but is still there and i'm feeling so much better. I purchase an ultrasonic massager and I really feel that it has help with the swelling. I'm also wearing my faja 23 hours a day, the only time it comes off is when am taking a shower and during my massages. I think the reason my results are good were because I was close to my ideal weight. I did have a lot of lose skin but my weight was close to were I needed to be for my height.
