It's official. I am 1 week post op and I am still pleased with my results other than the fact that I weigh more now then before and right after surgery but the doc said it is all just water from swelling and it will go away. It better!!!! He was amazed at how fast I am healing. My booty has all ready dropped down a bit which is what I was waiting for but I like it where it is now better. He dose not expect me to lose much more back there as far as volume but his said it wil get much softer. 1 week down. Months to go...,

@babycakes yes I want to get an appointment with him he seems to be the best in the area. The other surgeon's I've seen so far are inexperienced in this procedure. One surgeon told me I didn't have enough fat. And I know I do in comparison to other girls.

@143me4eva, he is lying. I went to one surgeon too and he told me that I dont have enough fat when I know for sure that I have enough fat to for the entire US Army. He just cant do it. Most of the time when a surgeon say that, he doesnt know what he is doing. Which doctor are you going to?

I have learned that taking care of a new figure is a lot and takes time and dedication. I wear my garments almost 24/7. Last night i took it off to breath just to give my skin a break. They work if you use them on a constant basis and don't give up it is a lot and uncomfortable at times but believe me in the end it is worth it. My waistline is just getting smaller and smaller..

You flew all the way to Fla. just for your lab work????

Yes I did, and kinda wanted to go anyways just to see too and to make sure there was no unpleasant surprises. He did a consult, I really didnt mind having that personal visit too.
@Danielle, how about I went to Dr. Salama's office for my pre op and the line was out the door and there was not place to sit. I couldnt believe it, the then when I finally when into the back because I stated that I was only there for the lab work, there was no place to sit back there either. It was so crowded. There were young people walking like they were 90 years, there were thick bootylious folks there, people with their chins with bandage with it and all. Boy I have never seen before, I am not sure if people is just rich or what. Was it like that when you go for your consultation? And then when I left, I was getting cold feet and getting scared.

ok so I am offically 5 months post op.. I am still loving my new shape and glad that I did it.. Although this surgery is a quick fix to a visual problem you still have to work on the inside thoughts about yourself..It has to become a lifestyle change. I have completely changed the way that I eat and exercise.. I am now pround to be in clothes that fit me a lot better.. I am glad that I came into it with a realistic visual of myself and not thinking that i was going to step out of a phone booth looking like Nikki, or Buffy.. I wanted something that was gonna look nice and natural.. I didnt want men just looking at my ass. At the end of the day I am a Woman and a Mother and dont need my daughter thinking she is supposed to be looked at like a piece of meat.. I hope that the women that go through with surgery do it for them self and not to please someone else cause at the end of the day all you have is you.. I am thankful that I have a supportive hubby that loved me the way that I was and just thinks that my change is just a bonus..

The hardness was gone by about 2 months. I would think the dark spots are just from bruising but I can be sure. Have you showed your doc. I used a faja by slender bodies my size to start was a 32 an I got down to a 30.

So it will be 6 months on sat and I can not believe it. I have gone home for the first time since surgery this week and the reactions that I have gotten are amazing. The people who know me know what I have done and are very supportive. I didn't realize the change until I come back to a place that has not seen me since I decided to do the surgery. I can honestly say that I am a happier person now. Not only did it this whole thing change my outtward appearance to others but it changed my life. I now enjoy life more because I am not consumed by negative thoughts about myself. I am no longer stressing about the belly fat that I could not hide. I take much more pride and my apperiance. I saw to all the bbl sisters out there. Don't do this to be the next NIKKi, KIM, or anyone else. Do it to be you!!! An upgraded you. I love who you are, take care of the investement you just made so that you will see the profit and gain. New pics soon. Luv ya

So it is almost 1 yr since having the surgery and I must say I am still happy with my results. My waist continues to shrink. I have maintained my weight of 164 by eating right and working out on a daily basis. /my hubby has been very supportive of my decision and encourages me to dress sexier. at times i have to do a reality check at what I now look like. Those who know me have given me nothing but positive responses. I hope that all that are looking to get this surgery stay realistic about their results and not try to be someone or someting that they are not. I believe that has kept me happy since having the surgery. You have to be happy inside and look at the changes ypu will make as just an improvement. Of course there are the haters out there that will talk crap about you but just remember they are just jealous....

Now I know the girls I have been in contact with Are gonna kill me but I have decided to go round to mainly for lipo to correct some uneven areas and since I was doing that might aswell put the fat to use. The doc said he will get about 1200 in each check not sure where he will get the fat from but kinda excited. Made my decision Monday had pre op Tuesday surgery on the 7. Looking forward to it

When are you having surgery
I was thinking about July not sure

Some new pics

Sooo like I said I was really only concerned with a few touch ups mainly my back area and a little from a side on my abdomen. I told my new doc that if he could get more in he was welcome to since I was already going to be under and a second BBL actually cost less then just lipo. He was able to get all and any rolls from my back and abd. He made my waist even smaller and added another 500+ ccs into each cheek. He also did a back scoop which is what gives you that amazing arch. Now I am positing pics today just to show the difference. I am extremely happy so far and expect it to only get better with time. My ass is ridiculous now which is ok cause I loved it before. And this is truly my last surgery. Upper body lipo is a pain !!

You know Danielle, I think that 1900cc was a bit much and it bothers me. I am really gonna try working it off, but if not, I will have him take out some. I bought a compression shorts/girdle and I couldnt get it over my ass, so I had to buy a large instead of the medium, the waist is kinda loose but it looks smooth. Not sure what to do here

10 days and feeling great. Still some swelling and harder spots in my butt. The soreness is almost all gone. I took some pics dressed with NO garments on underneath not a faja or compression garment and I can see the difference. Have been sticking to my salads, fruit and water and lost 6lbs since last week.

So it will be 3 weeks on thurs and this time was so easy. I do have some tender spots in my stomach but other than that I am good. I am in love with my results. My husband can't keep his hands off of me although I will say shopping for this new ass is not as much fun. I can't find a nice pair of jeans that I like. American Apparel has some high waist stretch jeans which seem to do the trick. I have not taken any measurements but I want to because I am now curious as to what they are. Can't wait for my ass to finish dropping it is a bit heavier than it was before

Girl all I can say is you look amazing and I can't wait until my round two. Is the round two as bad as the first time, or is it better because I really didn't have pain I was more sore and stiff than anything and I was awake the entire time. I feel that it will be better because my body has already experienced the trauma and I know what to expect. You are looking really good.

Summers over

Well the summer has come a gone and my body has gotten so many compliments.. Especially my rear. I encourage all the women who plan on having this surgery to think long and hard weigh the pros and cons and make the best decision for you. Having a nice big ass may sound like an amazing idea but know that the focus from men goes from you to your body. Women (mainly black) can be haters at times. You will have up and down times. Just make sure you are doing it for YOU and no one else

Big trip

I am going to Cancun in December which means a bathing suit 24/7 which by the way has become a new love hate relationship. Ladies who haven't had the surgery yet trust and believe shopping for swimwear will be just as hard and expensive as clothing can be but it is worth it. But anyway this up coming trip is making me go back to post surgery days. I am wearing my faja 24/7 watching what I eat and working out daily. I haven't gained any weight since the surgery but god knows I need to knock them dead when I walk out in my bikini. I have been enjoying this extra booty but have had a couple times where men have gotten extremely disrespectful. I don't go out looking for attention but having this large asset makes things a lot harder to go about my day without men staring or trying to take pictures. Please be prepared for the attention positive and negative

Hi... love your results the first and second time around. Just wanted to know the name and website for the second doctor and how much did he charge please. I think the dr. listed dr. bass is the one who did your first surgery. Maybe your second surgeon is better since u had less pain and probably less uneven areas... please let me know his website thanks sooo much

Enjoy This!!!

So I am about 8 months out from my second procedure and 2 years from my first and I wouldn't change a thing ladies.. There have been some days were I questioned if I went large enough or if I have lost some of the ass that I paid thousands for and let me tell you I haven't!! I took a recent trip to cancun with my husband and lived in a bathing suite for 7 days and women and men kept staring and giving me compliments. No one asked if it was real or not like I have been asked state side. They just thought it was perfect. Which made me realize I made the right choice. Realize this after doing this surgery you will have the body people WISH they had so it will come with some jealous words but stay calm and realize this was about your coincidence not others opinion.

Keeping it up

Ok ladies I get inboxes all the time with questions about the up keep after surgery and let me just say hat if you don't put in the work after surgery your results will change and you will soon be back were you started. I take the money that I spent seriously so with that I am in the gym 6 days a week. I watch what I eat and do a lot of legs. Doing this has actually made my butt bigger and firmer. I also do a lot of core work that allows my stomach and waist to be smaller thus giving me an hour glass shape. I have finally gotten measured and they are


Bust 42
Waist 30
Hips 48.

I hope this helps
