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

Hello ladies, how do I post my pre op photos? I want to post photos at my current weight.

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.

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

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

Wish pics

I adore these beautiful romps

HERE GOES

My pre op photos. I'm getting Bbl first, then my breasts etc.

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

CG Cosmetics

Has anyone inquired with or received a quote with Dr. Fisher at CG Cosmetics??? If so, do tell;-)

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.

Deposit made today

Finally on THE BBL WAGON, will keep you posted

Very defined shape already so u'll be fine. Have u decided to go with Dr. SALAMA?

You have a good foundation which is important. You're skin is smooth and you HAVE a shape. This is body contouring, by taking the assets you ALREADY have and chiseling them to expose whats really there. It's exciting for each woman and will be for you. Good luck!
  • Reply
Thanks Symphonic and you're absolutely right about the body contouring. I just want my hips rounded out and my deflated balloon filled. Of course take this tummy and waist down some.

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

  • Reply
Dr. Fisher wants you to be 190 lbs or less. I just want a breastlift with him.
  • Reply
O ok who are you considering for your bbl if your still thinking of doing it ? I'm so confused it's so much drama with these doctors
  • Reply
I'm considering Dr. Cortes, mainly because he can get all of your fat. There's no limit of how much fat that can be taken out in Texas.
  • Reply
O ok his work is amazing he expensive tho
  • Reply
Yes, but think about it, he will lipo your whole body. I just don't want to be flaunting a PHAT AZZ and still have fat hanging over the top of my bra. Not the look I'm going for. I'm about to call his office now, I received an email from them stating that my quote is ready.
  • Reply
I don't want him to give me hips. I really want to stick to my natural curves, I just need this deflated balloon filled up and out.

I will be following you!! My sister got her BBL done at Vanity 2 yrs ago and her results are great! She is the reason I am going there. It is a shame that their customer service is not that great, but hey, at least Jessica is not doing the procedures!! lol Good luck to you hun!!
  • Reply
BOL, RIGHT!! What PS did your sister have? And thank you, I will follow you also ;-)

My sister's ps was Dr. Pelayo. He still works for them but is currently working on renewing his Board Certification and it's not performing any surgeries at this time. My sister warned me about the poor customer service and long waiting times at the office but she is very happy about her results. Many of her coworkers have gone to Vanity for BL, TT, lipo, etc. and their results are also very good. I know they do a good job... :) It kind of reminds me of Publix vs. Walmart; both carry the same products, one at high prices with excellent customer service and the other is cheaper with horrible customer service.. LOL!

LOL, you are absolutely right about that. Thanks for the info luv
