I'm 5'0 ft tall and currently weigh 140 and 22 years old even when i lose weight i always have belly fat and large flanks.i decided to do this procedure so that i can lose my belly and make my butt a little fuller.

I'm going to strax in boca raton. im still trying to pick a date because i am starting a new job in september n dont want to ask for any days off.I Hope they can do it soon

So I've been working as a nurse 4 a year now & I'm more financially able 2 afford the bbl sx. I have gained weight tho from when I 1st wanted 2 do the sx I'm now 148lbs and man is it tough 2 lose these lbs! I actually went up 2 158 which is much for my 5'0 frame so Im trying 2 10-20 more lbs so I can have the best results possible. After reading all the reviews & seeing all the b4 & after pics I have decide to go with Dr.salama. I would like to have that small waist & round butt Dr.salama is so great at. I scheduled a consulatation 4 Wednesday & I going with my check book since his prices r going up & up. I'm hoping it isn't going 2 cost more then 7,500. I already started getting most of my supplies & I won't b needing the transportation. I want 2 have my arms lipo also even tho it's xtra so my body is in proportion. My biggest concern is the recovery time. I hope I can get at least 2 weeks off work to go thro that roughy patch after the sx. At my job I don't sit down much except when it's time 2 chart n that usually takes an hour. so that's 1 of the things I'm going 2 have 2 discuss with DR.salama cuz I kno I'm not going 2 b able 2 sit on a pillow I don't know mayb I can stand. My 2nd concern is me being on my feet n having swollen feet tho I do plan on wearing compression stockings. I would like to have my sx done in February cuz I plan on going back 2 school n furthering my education.
What I have so far:
Iron pills
Vit. C
Multi. Vit.
Colace
Paper tape
Arnica cream
Antibiotic oint.
1 compression garment
Boppy pillow
Sweatpants and shirts
1 long dress
Baby wipes
Disinfecting spray
Shower curtain
Female urinal

I had my consult yesterday :). I'm so excited and ready so have my sx done. I met dr.salama he explained the procedure very well including all the risks and what 2 expect afterwards. He also said that I should lose 10-15lbs to acheive the results that I want. I told I wanted a big butt but I wanted an hour glass figure more. So I'm going to try very hard. I put down a deposit n I'm going 2 work xtra hours to pay off my balance. I added my arms to b lippoed also I still wondering if it's worth it some people say the fat goes right back.

DOES ANYONE HAVE A SX DATE IN APRIL OR MARCH that they would like 2 switch 4 a later date plz. I'm going back to school n would like 2 have the healing process over with b4 I start.

So I switch over to dr.ghurani. My appt is April 17th.

Counting down the days! I'm down to 145lbs. Still trying to lose 10-20 more lbs so my belly can b as flat as possible n lose my rolls! I also hope that my stomach doesn't sag from the Lipo or that i have fat leftover. On the down side I found out that in not going 2 get back as much as I did last year from my tax return, which is how I plan on paying 4 my sx. I'm cutting my spending n trying to make extra cash but I dont know if that will b enough. Does anyone know of any medical loan or financing company for people with bad credit?

13 more days till my sx! Had my pre op appt with Rami he is so nice he explained the sx thoroughly and answered any questions I had. I received all my pre op instructions, rx, boppy pillow, n arnica.
I had my labs done @ any lab test now for $149 the guy at the store said the women i got my price from over the phone qouted me way too low but they Still had 2 honor it.
I did the ekg @ Midtown Imaging for $50 they just require a rx.
Perc from sams club pharm $15.

My mom tagged along n put her deposit money down she scheduled for July 3. I was going to borrow from no Pt left behind but decided against it when I heard the horror stories about them. So I borrowed money from the bank of Mom instead lol.

Day 1. Yesterday was tough. I arrived @ 7:30a. Got dressed 4 sx dr.g toke pics n marked me up n explain what was going to happen. Most of the pain is the soreness to my but. When I got home I toke 2 percs at some jello, soup n grapes. Today im still very sore n have an appt.

Day 2 post op.
Went into the office yesterday. my mom laid the seats down n her jeep so I could lay Down. I toke 2 percs before I left I should have taken a zofran also. They removed by garment and changed my drgs. I threw up twice! The staff is so wonderful and caring. I was given some juice to feel better. Dr.G came in and said everything looks gr8 I had just 1 drain put in 2 the back. My tummy n waist are small he told me to make sure I smooth my skin out when placing the foams. My ass is BIG he put 1400cc 2 each side he assured me it'll go down some. These curves r serious dr.g is amazing. I'll keep u guys updated ttyl

When I got home yesterday my mother helped me shower. Ladies if u use a handheld shower head it's so much easier. N another must have is a urinal. This morning I toke some mom. I had couple of false alarms when going 2 the bathroom. But finally had a decent size bm n it was not easy. I sat on the toliet seat backwards. And put the pressure to my thighs n arms. I found it easier then using the boppy. My tummy has went dowb a lot dr.g said to hold the skin up when placing the foams but it doesn't seem to stay in place. I tryed to use paper tape to hold it up also but that is helping either. Any Suggestions?
