Vanity Cosmetics in Miami or Duran in DR

I've been reading through a lot of reviews on RS...

I've been reading through a lot of reviews on RS for the past few weeks and I am so grateful to everyone for their reviews of their surgery experience. It's so easy to get obsessed with this site, especially when you see people with the results you want! Anyway, I am 25, 5,7", 170 lbs with slim hips and a small butt. My shoulders are wider than my hips and over time I have gained weight (I was 145 lbs a few years ago), my waist is not as small as it was and my stomach has gained a "pudge" in the lower abdomen.. not sexy. I haven't been in a bikini in a while and that sucks because I am originally from the tropics but NOW its time to change that. I always thought I would have to get implants but I'm so happy that the BBL exists.. this is perfect for me. At first I was thinking of Dr. Jimerson (he was the first surgeon I heard of that does BBL) but his prices are about $11, 200 and up.. way too pricey for me. So then I found out about the great work thats being done in the DR (Duran dolls are amazing).. that was exciting especially with the reasonable prizes! However, I'm a little worried about the traveling, language barrier, different surroundings, etc.... sooo how about Vanity Cosmetics?? It's in the US and their prices are very competitive so I'm starting to lean towards that. Still not sure though. My journey has just begun! I'm going to start contacting doctors soon. I'm hoping to do my surgery December 2014.
Welcome and congratulations! Dr fisher is great PS at Vanity! Best wishes!

Quote From Vanity

Hi Ladies! so I sent a few emails out requesting quotes from Vanity Cosmetics, Duran and Yily.. I know its gonna take a while for Duran and Yily to reply based on what all you guys been saying about how busy they are plus didn't Yily just have a baby? Anywhoo my e-mail had a few pics of myself and told them I want a small waist and curvy hips and booty. Welllll to my surprise I woke up to quote from Vanity this morning.. just one day later! The e-mail was from Jessica and she was recommending Dr. Fisher. She said she showed him my pics and that for BBL, general anesthesia, anesthesiologist, lipo on full back, waist, love handles, abdomen, full panel of lab work, 24h emergency line answered by the doctor and all surgery room costs will be $4500. I think thats a pretty good price. What do yall think? especially since it's in Miami. I wonder why she recommended Dr Fisher out of all the other doctors there though. I guess I'll ask her later. But I must add she said that I can have the procedure but for the results I want I need to gain around 15lbs!!! I dunno how hard it will be to gain that much especially since I was actually trying to eat healthier and lose weight but I guess that means they are really planning on sucking that fat out and giving me the donk that I want! lol.. But about the price.. they said it was their Christmas special and that the prices will raise for 2014.. I'm not sure by how much. To lock in this price I need to pay $100 by next week and if I can pay $2000 they will give me a $500 discount! I don't think I can pay $2000 right now but I think thats a good deal. Jessica's e-mail was really sweet.. you can tell she is a nice person. I wish I had more time to wait on the doctors in DR to give me a quote but I might just end up locking in this surgery price next week. So lets get this ball rolling huh. I've been thinking about this long enough!! Time to get my body looking right!

Pics I sent for BBL quote

Any Pre OP and Post OP Fisher Dolls out there?? I want to see his work and link up with u guys!

Yayy I got a quote from Dr Duran!!.. and Merry Christmas lovely ladies

I got a reply from Dr Duran 3 days after I sent my e-mail!! I'm so happy because I thought it would take a million years. She quoted $3600 for lipo and bbl which also includes:
•Pre-surgical medical examinations

•Cardiologic Evaluation

•Photographs (before and after surgery)

•Operating Room

•Anesthesia

•Post-surgical Accessory (1 Garment)

•Supplies and disposable materials

•Medicines (analgesics and antibiotics)

•Medical fees

•One night at the clinic

•One night of nursing care

•Consultation and medical checks before and after surgery

•Physician examinations and consultations, pre and post-operative

.. I would have to get medical insurance for $150 and post-operative medication for around $150
sooooo the total so far is $3900.. not bad at all. To secure a date I have to make a deposit of $250. I must tell u guys that I'm in LOVE with Dr. Duran's work. You should see her pics on instagram.. she's a beast!! Even with all the concerns I have about going to DR, she would make the trip worth it!!
I haven't fully decided if I should be a Fisher Doll or a Duran Doll but I will be making a deposit to secure a price and date very soon.

Merry Christmas!!! Wishing u all a lovely day with your friends and family..and to all the post op ladies happy healing!
Merry Christmas!

Quote from Yily

Hi ladies! I hope u all had a lovely Christmas! Can you believe the year is almost over??.. Time flies so fast! Well even though I plan to have my surgery a year from now I really felt the urge to start documenting now.. I guess it's because I've been lurking on everyone else's profile for so long lol. I'm grateful for all the info.. the good and the bad plus u guys can be funny as hell!

So at this stage I'm pretty much still doing research. I sent an email to Dr Yily a few days ago and I got an email this morning! I really have been lucky to get my quotes in such a short time.. I really hope that all the ladies that are waiting will get a reply soon. Just keep sending those emails!! I sent mine in Spanish so I guess that helped but most of my replies were in English. My Spanish (from google translate) must have been horrible so they probably could tell that English was the way to go.

Soo Yily's quote was $3,300 for the following procedures:

· Liposuction of the abdomen, full back, armpits, flanks and waist
· Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) via fat grafting to the buttock



Also included in the quote total are the following:
· One compression garment (distributed by SILIMED)
· Pre-operative blood work (TTP, HIV, Hbs, HCV, BASAL GLYCEMIA,GLYCEMIA, UREA, SERUM CREATININE, FULL BLOOD COUNT, VDRL, BLOOD TYPE Y RH)
· EKG test performed by our resident cardiologist
· Anesthesiologist Fee (Epidural Block)
· Clinic and Surgery Fees (room, operating room, nurses, IVs, 3 meals, surgical assistants, etc).

Meds will be an additional $250 so the total is $3,550


Optional Costs:
· Lymphatic massages $31 each session (10 sessions suggested)
· Additional garment $140
· Compression sleeves for your arms $60
· Compression Socks $20
· Blood Transfusion $250
· Medical Insurance. It covers any complication that may present withing the first 30 days after surgery. $150

Sidenote: The whole idea of a blood transfusion is really scary! I pray that won't be necessary when I get this procedure. It really reminds you how serious this surgery actually is.

So to round up the basic costs (not including massages, additional garments, etc)

FISHER -$4500 (no meds)
DURAN- $3,900 (with meds and medical insurance.. Not sure about painkillers)
YILY- $3,550 (with meds but not sure about painkillers)
Hey love I will love to follow you. I had my breast done by Fisher and planning to do BBL with him ;) planning for summer time.

Obsessed!

Wow I'm on this site everyday!! As soon as I wake up... as soon as I get off work.. as soon as I get home.. DAMN this is getting outa control!. Even my fiancee is like "Woww ur looking at booties again???!! SMH" lol I just can't help it! Plus those constant RS e-mails make things worse. I always wanna see new updates especially of u dolls that have made it to the other side.. so many snatched waists and banging booties. I'm so excited for you all!!! This year is definitely the year to get the body u always wanted!! I'm gonna make sure I get mine. Can you believe I'm also getting married this year and I don't think about my wedding half as much as I do about how fine I'm gonna look at the end of the year. That's just crazy!! I hope I get it together soon. Anyway I just wanted to show love to all the ladies that just had/have upcoming surgery. You all will look amazing! Just hang in there, stay positive and enjoy the journey to being even more sexy and fabulous!
P.S. Here are some of my wish pics (pretty much Yaris Sanchez lol)

Hey Coco, I see you're scheduled for Dec 13, is that date SET? I'm having sx with Robles in Dec about the same time. Don't know the proximity of Robles & Duran surg centers, would be great to meet up with someone...you going alone? I am, as of now.

I'm gonna be a Vanity Doll!!

I finally decided that it will be easier for me stay in the US and travel from NY to Miami instead of going to DR. I'm kinda sad.. just a little.. that I won't be a Duran doll (She's on fire right now!!) but I think its the best choice right now. So I spoke to Jessica at Vanity today and officially locked in on a price for my BBL!!!!! It's $5000 for Dr Fisher and $4000 for Dr Salas. I'm still not sure who I'm going to but she said that those 2 doctors are who she recommends for my body type and for the results I want. I've seen some good work from both doctors so I'll keep doing my research and following you future dolls and then I'll make a decision. This is so exciting because I cant believe I actually took this first step and sent a deposit.. it makes it so real!! Although my date won't be till November/December I still feel jittery because I'm really doing this!! I'm actually gonna do something about this pancake butt and get me some sexy curves hunny! lol Soo much to look forward to!!!

IMPORTANT!!!! .. It is true that Vanity's prices have gone up!! Jessica told me that today was the last day to lock in the prices she quoted!! The office was managing all deposits today before they officially raised the price. I'm not sure what it will be now but notice since last month Fisher already added $500 to his quote. I'm so happy I was able to contact them today so if anyone else has been thinking of going with them for this price please get in touch with them ASAP!!

I'm one step closer ladies!! Good luck to everyone!! xoxo
I put a deposit down with Vanity yesterday, hoping to have half of my $8500 (Mommy Makeover +) total paid my May to get a date but I'm thinking Decemberish. Stay tuned to my blog and I'll do the same ;)

Earlier Date?

Hey guys!! Let me just say that I've been seeing some slayed bodies these past few weeks! You post op girls are looking sooo good! You are really motivating me and making me really excited for what's to come. I know everybody has different expectations and experiences but your journeys have all inspired me... That being said a lot of us need to remember that it is a journey filled with ups and downs. You may not like what you see in the mirror immediately after the surgery but if you had enough faith to let that doctor operate on you then use that same faith with your body and give it time to mold.. It changes everyday! It's ok if you get a little frantic but stay positive! Worrying doesn't help anyone.

Well it turns out that I may be too busy with school at the end of the year so I might have to choose a surgery date in August. It would be great if I could have my perfect body for my wedding in July but I know that's not possible plus I only told a few people about my decision to do surgery so with all that family there it might be too much!! Everyone is gonna be bombarding me wanting to know where alllladat booty came from lol. I don't wanna be telling so many lies on my wedding day. I can't deal. But when all that craziness is over I hope I can get this new body in August.. I'll see how it goes *fingers crossed*. My fiancée is like who uses their wedding gift money on a new booty?? Well I do!! Haha

So far I'm still leaning towards Dr. Fisher but I don't think Dr. Salas is an option anymore. I barely see or hear about his work so I can't really do much research on him. However, I'm loving the results from Dr. Hasan!!!! Omg he's killing the game right now. His booties are so round and natural looking and it seems as if his technique has ur butt looking good from the first day out lol. His waists are also looking good too. I'm gonna keep up with a lot of you ladies who have surgery with Hasan soon. I wish you all the best! And of course to you Fisher dolls you are all looking amazing and those bootys are fluffing up nicely! No matter where you choose to have surgery, always do your research don't just follow the crowd. Always do what's best for you!

P.S. Vanity Cosmetics are straight hustlers.. If you look up hustler in the dictionary they should be one of the top examples lol. Those girls are something else. The amount of calls I've gotten about 'specials' that I can only get if I make another deposit.. It's crazy lol. I do plan on making another deposit next week though. Vanity is something else..
I'm too looking to do my procedure in the summer if all goes well. I just learned about Vanity and they seem good but their pics look just like the ones Dr Salama has on his website. How did you learn about them? I'm from Jersey and was considering DR too but after all the deaths I'm mainly looking at US docs and Colombia

@hotchick gd luck I'm going to vanity also

I don't know much about the doctors in Columbia but there are some good doctors in the US. I'm loving the results from doctor Fisher so I feel confident in him. Funny enough I found him on realself when I was looking up dr J and then I did further research. Good luck with your choice! I heard Salama is good as well.

Weight gain ugh!

Soo I've been gaining weight!! Not on purpose of course but my eating habits/cravings have been going crazy!! I don't know what's going on. This would be perfect for my surgery as Dr Fisher wanted be to gain around 10 pounds BUT I have a damn wedding coming up!!! Ugh!! I really wish I found out about this procedure before all the wedding plans started but such is life. Now I definitely need to start a diet and get serious about working out.. At least to get my stomach down. I can't be looking crazy in my dress. I know a lot of you are also trying to lose weight for different reasons so I'll post some helpful ideas. I hope I can follow them too.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good corset?? I think I'm gonna have to get one so I can at least make it seem like my waist is snatched until I actually become a Fisher doll.

P.s. Looking good ladies. Good luck!! I'm hoping to have surgery in August!
@stefanyim very happy u r taking the initiative to help make improvements on vanity customer service:-)

Tips

Financing Options?

Hi ladies!!!
Just settling in from a wonderful wedding!!! It was such a perfect day!! I wish I could relive that day over and over. Nowww I'm back trying to figure out how to get this surgery by the end of August. Sooo many unexpected expenses have popped up lately in addition to my expensive wedding and things are looking kinda dim. I don't want to wait until the end of the year so do any of you have suggestions for financing options?? I got denied for care credit and united medical wants me to get a cosigner which I don't have :( When you add up travel expenses, accommodation, supplies and the surgery it's a lot. I'm short of about $3000 . Let me know of any ideas you have. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Good luck ladies!! Hoping to be a Fisher doll soon!!
hey dear i am ready your journey, first of all let me say welcome.......yes the finaces can add up, what i would suggest you to do is to pay your surgery off little by little until you pay it off depends on how quick you want to have the surgery you can put down 200-500 every paycheck or monthly then from do a little budget for your airfare and supplies and recovery home you need to pay hal your surgery cost to lock a date and the earlier you buy your ticket the shippe rit will be i did not do any financing so i do not really know about them......maybe you will have to push it it up to end of the year so you can have less stress and own nothing:) and you will have the winter to heal :)))))))! good luck and let me know how i can help

Time flies and before you know it I will be on my way to Miami.. Can't wait!!! Fisher dolls you are looking so good.. Counting the days to my turn.. xoxo

Time is flying!!

It's officially October 1st!!! I can't believe how fast time flies!! It's been almost a year since I found out about realself and since I decided that I will get this surgery. I have learnt so much!! I really appreciate this site. Life has taken so many twists and turns but things are starting to look up and I'm planning to have my surgery at Vanity right before thanksgiving... Slowly making payments but I'm almost there. Good luck ladies!! Whether you are researching and planning or recovering and healing, everything happens in its own time..

Almost paid in full!!

I made my second to last payment today!! Yay!! I am covered for more than half of my surgery balance and can now get locked in for my surgery date. I have been jumping from one coordinator to the next but I hope I will finally settle with Stefany Amaro. She is so sweet and helpful!! If you are having trouble with Vanity it might be a good idea to ask for Stefany when you call.

Well it turns out that Fisher is pretty much booked for November but she is try to get me in for November 20th. I had a feeling his schedule would be crazy but I'm really crossing my fingers!!!! I really want to go with Fisher, he has been my number 1 choice for the longest. However, if it isn't possible I'll go with Dr Hasan as he has good results as well. I just have to stress that I really want hips!!! and I guess I will have to deal with no drains. Either way I trust them both and I know my waist will be snatched and my booty will be poppin! I'm so excited!!!!

I'm going to be a Hasan Doll 11/19/2014

Unfortunately Fisher is all booked!! Based on my schedule and Fisher going on vacation in December I can't get a date with him until around the end of January. I can't wait that long so I'm going with Dr Hasan!! I've been researching his results like crazy the last few days and I'm confident that he will sculpt my body right and give me curves for days! lol.. but seriously I'm going to explain exactly what I want and I hope things will go perfectly. Time to get supplies and start preparing myself for this big change!! whoo I'm so nervous and excited at the same time..... Still not sure where I'm staying and I'm not sure if my hubby can make it. I might go alone so anybody going around November 19th??? I'm interested in getting a buddy!!!

I am going with Dr Hasan because Dr. Fischer was booked until Jan, but i did my research and does good work in sculpting your body, the only thing is he doesn't do hips and i really want some hips that's my only concern. . But i'm excited.

3 weeks to go!!

Paid in full and I bought all my supplies!! I think I'm gonna start drinking a few ensures to gain some weight.. maybe to get to 172 lbs. Some days I look like I have enough fat some days I don't smh.. I don't think I will be able to do labs before I go to miami even though I really wanted to. I've been taking multivitamins and as soon as my pur-absorb comes next week I will start taking that as well. I told hubby that I'm gonna start eating liver and he was so disgusted lol. Its gross but oh well you gotta do what you gotta do. Counting down the days!!
