PICS ADDED! Info for Jacksonville BBL ladies!

Hey there!!

This website has kept me motivated in pursuing this procedure. I am honored to finally write my first post! All your stories have inspired me although I'm not getting much support from the BF :( he thinks I'm fine as is but he doesn't have to walk around with this booty :) lol! So I'm doing it! I had my first consult today with a local surgeon and although she was very confident, I don't think we shared the same overall outcome. I'm hoping for something more dramatic and she said the biggest she's done is 600CCs. I was hoping for at least something between 900-1100. Her price was amazing which makes it hard but I can't help to think there's someone else out there who can make my dreams come true! Guess I'm back to the drawing board :(

Hey there!!

So a huge shoutout goes to FloridaBBL for referring Dr. Hardy in Jacksonville Florida. He was absolutely amazing! He was very smart, and made me feel extremly comfortable. He mentioned everything I wanted before I even had to say it. Not to mention he was caring, had ample experience and very afforadable! Put down my deposit without any second thoughts, and I am booked for April 11, 2013. WOOHOOOO!!!

Hey did you tell him how many cc's that you wanted.. Inbox me with your reply...
What are his prices like for a butt lift?

Hi ladies!! I was looking at the calendar today and almost flipped when I realized I'm only a month away from having the body I've been longing for! I see all my doctor hardy ladies have been keeping busy, and I can't wait to see those results!! I don't know how to go about getting the bloodwork done, so I might have to give Debbie a call in the morning. I just told my manager I need a few weeks off for surgery and he's been working on allowing me to telework rather than use up all my leave which I am so grateful for! Well, hope everyone is doing well!

Awww you are too sweet!! Thanks hun!! I'm beyond excited. It's funny because most people I interact with day to day have no clue I'm about to have this procedure done..you guys are the only ones I discuss this with(besides my mom and bf). I really hope they notice a difference about me once it's complete! :)

Good Morning my BBL friends! Lately I've been...

Good Morning my BBL friends!

Lately I've been busy preparing to be out of work for a few weeks. I had to fax over a form to Dr. Hardy's office and Sonia advised it probably wouldn't be returned for about a week because of the Dr.'s busy schedule. I still havent purchased ANYTHING, and should probably start because time is flying!! I have been in touch with the office several times, once because I was called by accident and they apologized and assured everything was fine, second because I wanted to know when I needed my bloodwork done. (Sonia advised I would get the paperwork the day of my pre-op and can schedule it then), and then a few more times to get the fax number to send paperwork and request a different time for my pre-op. I was originally told Dr. Hardy's schedule was busy and he may not be able to change my pre-op time, but a day later I recieved a call stating they could change from 9:30am-11:30am. (This way I can go on my lunch break). Yay! Still very anxious, nervous, excited. Hasn't really hit me yet that im actually going through with this. My boyfriend took off work the day of the surgery, my mom took off the next day, and my sister took off the day after that. They are working in shifts so I really appreciate their support! Hopefully within 4-5 days I will be good on my own?!? Thanks so much for all of your reviews and stories, I swear I LIVE by this site and without all of you, I probably would have never reached this point. Xoxoxoxoxo!

So what a coincidence! I was just flipping through the channels on my tv this afternoon when I came across MTV's True Life. A girl was getting a BBL in Miami!! I was very nervous at first seeing her come right out of surgery but she looked amazing afterwards so I guess I'm still excited!! This Sx seems to be the only thing on my mind lately and I can't wait to see the final product!!

It's almost your turn friend.. The day of pre-op he's gonna take a ton of pics of you and measure you for your garment. He will be placing 2 different kind on you the day of surgery. Make sure you ask a lot of questions,cause I did.. I'm 200% sure he's gonna meet my wants. Did my blood work and prescriptions today also. So I'm just waiting it out now.

Hi summer booty!! It was sooo hard to find other Duval girls on this site and now there are a ton of us!! Dr James Hardy is located in the new business offices right off of 9a (gate pkwy exit). I never heard of him before FloridaBBL posted her review. Then thats when my mom said she's seen several of his commercials. I liked him a lot better than the first doctor I met with.

So I think my job and other activities have kept...

So I think my job and other activities have kept me sooooo busy that I have barely had time to think about this huge event I am about to experience. I've been out of town every weekend for the past month, another trip coming up this weekend for my moms bday and have an upcoming interview out of town next week. When that is done I can probably take a deep breath and actually register this whole situation. My date is RAPIDLY approaching. Only 16 days out. Hope all you ladies are doing fabulous!!! My friend FloridaBBL is going through her Sx with the same doctor today and I pray everything turns out even better than she expected. Till next time! :)

Thanks so much for this information. I am looking forward to Friday!! I hope everything is going smoothly for you today!! You should be out of Sx in just a little bit! :)
Hey Gurlie .. Today is a beautiful Saturday and I'm in here looking out the window. Everything is going good though. I just can't get the lil pouch at the bottom of my stomach to act right, when I can get better pics I'm gonna post then cause Dr,Hardy has made me feel like a natural woman. Everything I asked, he gave me and I can't complain about that. That fever is coming in going and I'm trying to hold off till Tuesday when I see him to let him know,
Im patiently waiting to see those results girl, Im excited, and cant wait til june 6. Thanks for posting all that you have, sista keep us updated

Hello ladies!
I am sitting in the airport as I type this and although I should be a nervous wreck about my upcoming interview this afternoon, I keep catching glimpses at beautiful bootys!! :) I hope I get similar results! My preop was last Friday. Dr Hardy confirmed the areas he would be removing fat from and reassured me everything will turn out great. I admitted to him how I haven't really given much thought about the surgery lately with all the hectic-ness going on in my life. He said good, just keep busy and before I know it, it will be over. :) I took literally a million pictures and was measured for my garment and provided prescriptions for every little thing you could imagine! Not sure i will actually take all those meds, but I guess it's good to have them on hand. One thing that really concerned me was that I SWORE my surgery date was April 11th however, I was in Dr Hardy's schedule for the 12th. So I guess they pushed me back a day. Oh well, no worries..one more day to get prepared. Hope you all had a fabulous holiday, until next time!

I am so happy for you. You great outcome is keeping me inspired that I will too have good results. Can't wait to see more pics. Hope your fever goes away soon!
Thanks hun! I will try to finally get some shopping done for recovery items later this week and will try to post once or twice more before surgery day. I am excited for the both of us! We will both have great bootys in time for the summer! :)

Good Afternoon Ladies! So my Surgery date is...

Good Afternoon Ladies!

So my Surgery date is Friday. WOW! It still hasn't even registered in my brain that I will be doing this. Some family members of mine had more intense procedures done so they keep telling me I will be fine. The only items I have purchased (and plan on purchasing until after surgery is over) are:
- Cotton Balls
- Peroxide
- Alcohol
- Female Urinal
- Prescriptions from Dr Hardy (Sleeping pills, pain relievers, stool softeners, and nausea control)
- I stocked up on pineapple juice, fruit, water, snacks, easy-to-prepare meals (I will cook and freeze some food tonight for days I dont feel like cooking following the procedure)
- Dial unscented/antibacterial bar soap

Thats it! If there are any other MUST HAVE items that anyone recommends, please do share. I don't want a ton of extra items just laying around the house useless. But if they are essential to the recovery process I would like to add them to my stash.

My manager did a great job of loading me with work to do while I am teleworking from home. (I am actually not too thrilled about this.) He wants me to complete three very large projects in addition to my usual workload in the two weeks I am planning to stay home. We will see how that goes.

Because it has still not hit me yet that I will be having surgery, I hope to continue to not think so much about it. I hope I just walk into the hospital Friday morning and say "Lets do this!" For those of you going through surgery within the next couple days, I wish you a speedy recovery and amazing results. If you all do not hear from me by Friday, I will see ya'll on the other side :)

Till next time!

Heyyyyy!

Today was a rough day but I made it! My butt is soooo sore. Kind of like the feeling you get from an intense workout when you haven't been in the gym in awhile. I've already pee'd on myself because I couldn't move my garment out of the way quick enough lol :( my sister says my butt is huge!!! Hopefully I'll keep a lot of that volume. I will try to post pics tomorrow because every time I stand up I get nauseous. Well , back to bed I go! Ttyl!

I keep having "accidents" on my garment so I had to take it off and wash it. My mom has been amazing to me and will help put it back on when it dries. I can't seem to fall asleep even though I'm on sleeping pills AND OxyContin. My family is keeping me entertained so I'm enjoying their company. I ate half of a small soup from panera bread and half of a piece of bread. I'm super swollen but couldn't resist snapping some pics for those interested. These are same day pics so hopefully I can get better ones a few days from now. Ok I'm going to try sleeping again! Talk to you ladies soon

Good afternoon loves!

So it's now 2 days post op and I love my results so far! I pray I keep my volume, I just want the "boxy" shape to become more rounder.. I am able to move around by myself for the most part..but I still have someone around just in case..I attempted to shower today but it didn't last long because I got dizzy very quickly. I did wash my garment once more and now I feel so much better now that I'm clean. I am beginning to get bored laying on my stomach but ill do whatever I need in order to keep my volume. I have been super itchy but Benadryl has helped a lot..also, I keep having discharge come out of my vagina :( so I keep tissue nearby and wet wipes to clean every so often..not sure if this is normal but ill ask my dr tomorrow I guess..hmmm..appetite has been minimal..but I've been eating anyway..

Well I guess that's it for now! Till next time!

Good afternoon!

It's such a beautiful day in Jacksonville FL, it's too bad I can't be out there enjoying it. Instead, I'm inside watching talk shows and laying on my stomach. The perks of having surgery! I just came back from
Dr Hardy's office. Today was the first day I got dressed up since surgery and it felt good! He said my results are great, and should be a lot better in 2 weeks for my next appt. I took a ton of pics for his records and this time, even with bruises and all, I felt happy about my new body :) I forgot to ask about my CCs and pre-surgery measurements so I called Sonia, the receptionist, on the way home to relay the message to the Dr. Hopefully he will respond soon. I guess I should really start taking the stool softeners I was prescribed because that task has been a dreadful one. Today I was stuck on the toilet for about 30 mins. LOL sorry for the gross details! I am putting 2 pics from today up, they are side by side. 5 days post op. I am feeling really good today, not as sore and havent been on pain meds for two days. Happy recovery to my BBL friends and good luck to those going under soon!! Till next time!

Good morning! Sorry for being away for so long....

Good morning! Sorry for being away for so long. I've been out and about far more than I probably should have been. My friends and family have been on my case and today I slipped up and admitted to dr hardy that I have been a little busy body lol..needless to say he said I should be resting! Today's appt went well. I saw FloridaBBL but wasn't sure if it was her until after the fact. I didn't want to introduce myself to someone who had no clue who I was! :) I finally for around to asking my measurements and CCs. Dr hardy said he injected nearly 2 liters of fat (not sure how many CCs that equals I think it's about 1000ccs on each side) and my pre surgery measurements were hips 33 and waist 40. He said my hips now are much smaller and my waist is larger. He showed me my before pics and WOW! I was just starting to doubt my results when he showed me that. Now I am a believer that my body looks soooo much better. I asked him about working out and he said I can go
ahead now as long as it feels natural and not hurting me. He also advised he has a masseuse that comes into the office that he is scheduling for me to see and massage my lumps out. He says these lumps are natural and a sign of healing. He says I'm still swollen and should expect to go down more. Hope you all have a wonderful day! My next appt is 4 weeks from now.

Good morning and happy Friday! This week I...

Good morning and happy Friday! This week I returned to work and it's been a funny experience. I have been wearing loose skirts so it has been difficult to see my new body. Today I wore cotton pants and I keep getting compliments on my shape and weight..my coworkers think I had "back" surgery and they said I've maintained my weight well after surgery LOL. It's been a pain sitting all day so I've been getting up and walking around as well as sitting on my boppy pillow when possible. Today I called Awakening Spirit massage which I have visited on several occasion for Swedish massages. My masseuse said they do in fact do lymphatic drainage massages at the same price as their regular massage. I thought I would share with you guys as an alternative to what FloridaBBL found out. The info is awakening spirit massage..246 3rd st. (A1A) Neptune beach, FL. 904-242-8998. Carolyn is great there! I am still extremely lumpy so I plan to have my first massage this weekend. I am getting many messages with ladies doubting the procedure so I am going to post another before/after comparison of my body to show how much I am pleased with my results. My volume has definitely gone down but just having these curves is amazing. I feel sexy and I would recommend dr hardy to anyone!! I may go back in about a year or so to try and make the booty larger but as of now I keep getting tons of compliments and I love the way my clothes fit. Hope y'all have an amazing weekend!

Hi hun how are you doing? I have been following your review for a while now because we have the same doctor. You look great by the way. I was wondering how you got such a low price because they quoted me $8700. Do you know him personally? Can you do me a favor and tell him you referred me and I was hoping to get the same price?
