i'm 39 yrs. old and a mother of 5. i currently weigh 195 lbs. and stand 5'8. i came across this website in dec. 2011, while researching butt injections. when i found out about the bbl, i knew i had to have this procedure done. i don't want and will not consider a tummy tuck. so i will have to choose my doctor carefully. as of right now, i am working on preparing myself emotionally & physically. i want to lose some weight first. definitely want to bring my stomach down some. any doctor recommendations are appreciated

congrats on the start of your journey. it is a long rollercoaster at times, but this site is very helpful. the best thing first is just to get a list of docs from this site and any reccomendations and then do the consultations FOR YOURSELF so u can see if that doctor and price fits u.

Hi there, welcome and thanks for sharing your journey with us. Have you set up any consultations yet, or is that happening once you've gotten to your goal weight?

Thanks Krazyray42, I will do that
Hello Kirsty, by the New Year I will hopefully have a few doctors in mind. From that point, setting up consultations. And also trying to get to my goal weight, which is 180 lbs.

It's always good to do a lot of research, make sure your doctors are board certified and get to know their work, before you make any major decisions!

Ok thanks

Waiting for my quotes from Vanity in Miami

It's been a long time since I've been on here. So much has happened, but that's just life. I will definitely be having my surgery this year, if it's the Lord's Will. I'm waiting on my quotes PATIENTLY, YEAH RIGHT!!! I'm going to add my pre op photos once I get my quotes back.

I will follow your journey. I also need to lose some weight and will not consider a tummy tuck even though I was told I needed one. My surgery is in June of this year.

ANXIETY

It's getting the best of me. I'm going to make some more calls Monday, hopefully to get things rolling a bit faster. I live in Florida, but not South Florida. I don't want to do consultation, via email or phone. I would be much more comfortable consulting in person. I want to listen to the doctor first and his recommendations. Then I will express my thoughts on what I want my results to be. If the doctor's recommendations and vision is compatible with my thoughts, then HE MAY be the doctor for me. Of course there's other factors to consider. Each of us have different ways of choosing our PS. I'm going to schedule in person consults at two different offices. As soon as I get the dates on them, I will post it

Just a heads up Dr.Salama does face to face consults only on Wednesdays the other days he's in surgery. Try to be the first one he sees because his office be packed

Okay, but I really want Dr. Ghurani
Make sure you choose a doctor that's best for you before you go putting down a deposit because they will not give you your money back and also choose a date that's best for you because now I hear they charge you to change your date

Consult scheduled

My choices were Dr. Fisher and Dr. Ghurani for the Bbl. Vanity Cosmetics told me that I was out of Dr. Fisher's weight range. That Dr. Bass would be the PS for me. I declined Dr. Bass because he wasn't one of my choices. I'm sure he's good with working on plus size women as I was told. I plan on losing the weight, scratch that. I'm going to lose weight. However I have consultation with Dr. Fisher in two weeks for something other than Bbl. Of course I will talk about my losing weight for the Bbl. If at the end of the consult he feels I'm not a good candidate for him to do surgery. I do have consultation with Dr. Ghurani at Elite Plastic Surgery in February. That was the earliest he had. Regardless, I won't make a decision on the Bbl until I have seen both doctors.

Ashamed

I really want to put up my pre op photos. But seeing myself this way makes me feel sad. I refuse to be intimate because I don't want to be seen naked. Nor to have anyone feeling up all my fat. When I lay down, my breasts fall to the sides. Like their trying to hide under my arms or something. SMDH Humiliating at the least

Thanks for the kind words, I will post them soon @ Ms. Charmingascash

Stats

I'm 210 lbs. and 5'8. I'm going to lose weight. Want to be 180-185 lbs. before surgery. Hearing about all these mix ups at Vanity, have me weary. Doesn't stop me from wanting my surgery. I will be calling them again. Talking to Jessica is fine, but I need more clarification. Really need to speak with the doctors ASAP. I read these reviews daily and I truly appreciate all of you ladies. This site is a blessing, very informative and for the most part positive. Thanks luvs

Ghurani is X'D out on my list

All I can say is, it's down to Dr. Fisher. I put my deposit down today for the Bbl with him. I have to lose weight, which is fine with me. I want my results to be worth it. I was told to lose 20 lbs, to be able to get surgery with Dr. Fisher. If I don't lose it, they will push me off on Dr. Bass. I was told that Dr. Bass specializes in the Bbl with heavier women. Dr. Bass IS NOT a choice of mine. As for Dr. Ghurani, his prices went up today, TREMENDOUSLY!!! SMDH, he's a dollar more than Dr. Salama. I'm not going to worry about it, I have made my decision. It's way too much confusion going on right now for me. As of today, I'm on the Fisher train.

Trying to keep my kool

This whole Vanity thing is nerve wrecking. All these different price quotes are giving me a freakin headache. I like order, but that's something that Vanity definitely lacks. I will be calling them again tomorrow, to change my surgery. I think I'm going to get off this Bbl train. I'm going to get my breasts done and be done with Vanity. All that lying and redirecting they do when you call, I can't deal with. I feel that the only way you will receive direct quotes, is if you go to the office. I told myself yesterday that I wasn't going to worry about all this, but I was fooling myself. I'm really aggravated by all this confusion that these reps are causing. WTF

CHANGES

I had consults scheduled for January 20th with Dr. Ghurani and Dr. Fisher. I canceled after all the commotion about these insane quotes. I personally don't have the tolerance. However, I paid a deposit already and I'm sure I can't get it back. So on that note, I will just get my breast lift with Dr. Fisher. I will get them done in the Spring. But I'm glad I kept my February appointment with Elite for Dr. Ghurani. I called Elite this morning to ensure that he was still available for my consult on said date. To my surprise, he is. So I'm good

Ms. Cali candy, I talked to Jessica this morning. I just switched to have the breast lift procedure done with Dr. Fisher instead. I don't think I'm going to Vanity for my Bbl anymore, too unorganized.

I don't have a passport, so I'm stuck in the states. I want my results to be WOW and bangin. Not okay results

Call from CG Cosmetics

I got a call from CG COSMETICS today around noon. They were contacting me about the inquiry I put in a couple days ago. I will say that their office is prompt in getting back to you. I was told by the woman that they are running a special for breast lift for $4000 and Bbl for $5000. So I asked could I pick the Doctor I wanted, she said sure. I told her I would like Dr. Fisher and she then said, Dr. Fisher no longer work here. End of story for me. We ended the call after our thanks. So there you have it, Dr. Fisher NO LONGER WORK AT CG COSMETICS. But there are other Plastic surgeons at their facility, check them out ladies /gents.

In my opinion, you're going to look fabulous. First of all, your pre-op pics aren't bad at all. Secondly, your shape is pretty much defined... so, you can already see what you will look like with the TT. Many of us don't have that advantage. I actually posted pics, but I decided to take them down until I get closer to my date. Now, they were a mess. Lol! Good luck and keep us posted! xoxo

Deposit made today

I am 5'4 and started out at 205lbs last November when I decided I needed to get my life back. I'm down to 174 (gained a few this past week) but plan to go down to 170 for my bbl. @coca_colashaped is right, we all get to a point when we need a change. For me, a spouse death, kids grown. It's time for mom to get her groove back. We are so busy helping out family and taking care of others that we honestly forget to take care of ourselves. We've all been there. You can do it. What worked for me was 1 hour of cardio 4-5x a week (incline training) with 30 minutes of upper and lower body strength training. Even with all that, I still had to cut down on carbs (50grams a day) to start seeing significant weight loss. Carbs and me don't mix. I still have cottage cheese thighs. Oh well can't do much about that right now...even when i was skinny i had cellulite, don't care. After I get my curves back, I'll deal with the cheesy thighs. LOL. But you do you girl! and yes you can do it keep your focus. Fist pumping the air for you! Victory is yours.

babez dont be ashamed of your body, we all get to a point in our life when we need a change, im sure if you exercise and incorporate healthy foods you will shed the pounds, stay away from greasy foods , fatty foods and too many startches, we all get carried away sometime with our food and eat like crazy sometimes stress and alcohol can add to our weight gain, get control of your life i know you can loose your desire weight and build your self esteem :-))) kisses
