I am 26 years old and I have wanted a bbl even before I learned about it. Every time I spoke with my friends/family I would always say how much I wish I could remove my fat from my waist and transfer it to my butt. Everyone will laugh and say how crazy I was. "Ohhh girl you look fine, just work with what you got. Its a little but be proud." Well nope not anymore, I am desperate for this solution to my noazzatall. I have always been super self-conscious about my butt. I even recall the early years of dating my husband 10 years ago, when I will be hiding my butt every time I had no clothes on. LOL He noticed it and jokes about those moments from time to time!!! Like many ladies' bf/husband, he loves me just the way I am. HOWEVER, he says that he knows I have dreaded my butt for so long and that going through this will definitely make me happy. In reality, I know that he is tired of my butt complaining and sees it as the ONLY relief. This is sad but I have always looked at my butt in the mirror hoping that it has miraculously grown. It is very upsetting to go shopping, find a perfect dress/outfit to later find out in the fitting room that my ass has killed the dress (not in the good way).
I am sort of familiar with garments (fajas). After I had my first baby boy 2 years ago, I began to wear fajas to bring the tummy size down a few notches and to lift my butt. A temporary solution, but I am seriously tired of wearing them to fake the funk. Like some ladies here I have also tried squats, lunges and whatnot, with no substantial result. I found this website a few weeks ago and I have been too addicted. The stories and the before and after pics have definitely inspired me to consider the procedure. What stalled me for a minute I must say is the probability of having more kids within the upcoming years. I have researched for ladies that have done the procedure and later became pregnant. I came up with one or two. I really wanted to know if it was worth doing it before or waiting until I was done having kids. Some doctors here have mentioned that it is ultimately the individual's choice. Well I can't wait, I want the butt now!!! However, if there are any girls out there that have gone through the BBL or just a lipo and later got preggos, please let me know how was the experience or how it turned out.
I will be posting pre-op pics soon. (Not in a hurry to post those horrendous pics) Along with my measurements.
I am heavily considering Dr. Jimerson. I have sent my pics to the office and I am in the middle of arranging the consultation date. As much as I want to leave the Flat Butt Club, I may be expecting. I have done two at home test and the results have been negative, but I am not totally convinced. My period is a bit late so I will wait a few more days to re-test. I am not looking forward to postponing my butt enhancement project, but I will be delighted to add another bundle of joy to the family. If I am not, I definitely know I would like to schedule the procedure for Feb-March 2013.

So I know some of you ladies have stated and I seen in the RS help page that you cannot upload pics with your phone. But this has not been the case for me. I am able to upload pics and add caption. So, I felt like I had to share what I had found through experimenting. It seems if you have a smartphone running android 4.0, it is as simple as going into your RS profile website, clicking on your phone menu options (where you see a list: forward, bookmarks, find on page and more), look and select for"Request Desktop Site." The page will reload and you will see the option to add a photo. For iphone users-the safari does not have this function. However, Chrome provides this feature for the iphone (and other phones). I have not been able to test this on an Iphone but I have searched it and found several articles and video that support what I am saying. Same steps, you have to open your RS profile with chrome, select the drop down menu next to the address bar, scroll down until you see "request desktop site." What happens is that when you visit the RS website on your phone, the website picks up that you are using a mobile device which disables the upload pic feature. I have posted pics of screenshots for both android and iphone. Hope this helps somebody!!! HAVE A HAPPY BOOTY PICTURE TIME!!!!!

[ ] What happens if results are uneven, seroma or infection? He stated that he rarely has patients with uneven butts or infections, but when it does happen for an uneven butt he will have you come back in to the office to fix it. He prescribes antibiotics to prevent infections. For a seroma, he will have you come to the office to drain it.
[ ] Post op insurance - I believe the company is Medisure. You are covered for 30 days and it is included in the price.
[ ] Ccs are determined at consultation or day of sx? - He stated he won't know until he goes in.
[ ] Do you recommend lymphatic or deep tissue messages? Any near by that you recommend? He recommends lymphatic messages for 6 weeks and I could start them back at home. I would have to arrange that way in advance before I go for surgery.
[ ] I am aware of the complications. But still want to know what may grant a trip to the hospital. He said really really bad infections which he says is 1% and an embolism, which he confirmed that you may get it from not moving around after surgery.
[ ] How long will I stay with drains? He said 7-10 days, depending on how fast you are draining.
[ ] How soon can I book a flight and how long will the stay be? He did not answer how soon I can book flight but he did say I have to stay for 10 days.
[ ] I know every body is different. What are the chances of getting close to my wish pic (one of his previous patients) He suggested that to get closer to the wish pic I would have to add the hips, because I have a square ass lol. I wanted to laugh out loud when he said that. I was planning to do my hips anyways, but he confirmed it. When speaking to Monica she mentioned that the flabier the butt the better the results and that the more muscles the more the fat reabsorbs. Dr. Jimerson also asked if I wanted to do my bra roll. Those rolls really don't bother me, but Monica did mention that if I gain weigh those rolls will be more visible. I have been 125-130 for so many years that I thought I do not have to worry about gaining weigh, but now they have me looking at myself in the mirror and wondering should I just add that to my tab (9800=8800 for butt+ 1000 for hips). Which will be an extra $900 that I was not planning to spend. : / Any girls would like to enlighten me with their decision on doing or not doing their bra rolls? I would appreciate it.
He also mentioned that I should stop taking any herbal supplement (including my fish oil Pills) until after surgery. He said I should continue taking multi-vitamin that includes iron, especially if one suffer from anemia, and that it should not include Vitamin E. SO MY PRE-OP IS JANUARY 14 AND MY SURGERY IS SCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 16TH. Hooray. Even though this part of my journey is done with, I feel all over the place. I find myself in the reviews of others in search of items to add to my list, i think about having to book my flight, my hotel, get my medical clearance and other things that I may not recall at this moment. I usually get extremely anxious before traveling, because I like to search for the best deals. At the end I become super glued to the computer and with half my lower lip gone (I tend to bite the inside of my mouth when nervous). Anywayss, I forgot that I also was told to gain 10-15 lbs. I don't know if to pig out now or to wait.

Sooo, I have gained 2 lbs so far. I have added the following to my diet: peanut butter and nutella sandwiches, Ensure plus, apples, banannas, croissants and eggos or whole grain bread w/cheese & turkey. As far as dinner I serve myself double the amount I would normally eat. I take so long to eat it, it aint funny. I take so long the food turns cold and I have to force myself to finish it off. My husband says I am slacking and I should be eating more, I think I am doing fine. I still have two whole months and some weeks to go. I am planning to take multi-vitamins and add a protein shake, but Sandy's aftermath has prevented me from purchasing these items. Yesterday, I went to the nearest shop and it was closed due to Sandy. I thought I could buy from the Vitaminshoppe near my job, but I have not been able to travel to the city. Hopefully, things start looking up for us at the East Coast real soon. I have donated to the RedCross for those that have suffered greater losses and my prayers go out for those families that are struggling. Going back to my weight gain efforts, someone mentioned making my own smoothies. I will make more of an effort to add that to my diet so that I can speed up the weight gain.

Now I am 4 days post op, still taking my medications and tolerating this tight ass garment. The highlight of my day yesterday was being able to do #2 and seeing my body without the garment. I only had to take the prescribed colace for one day and that was enough for me. Taking off the garment was so painful and difficult. All I kept saying was how they expect this damn garment to come off. My sister and cousin where just shaking their heads and laughing at how big my booty is. With their help I was able to take it off and put it back on. I thought the HYATT hotel had a laundry room, but it was disappointing to hear it didnt. So I hand washed my garment and compression sock, and later dried it with a blow dryer. THe garment was soo tight while putting it back on that, we accidently rubbed the incision site causing it to bleed a little. I just placed a new gauze over it, but I told myself I was never taking this garment off until I need too. I seriously think that I may have killed fat cells while taking and putting that damn garment. I don't know how you ladies did it, but you definitely need assistance with that. I am trying to eat as close as I can to the diet that was given to me, I am drinking water and pineapple juice all day. Taking bannanna and strawberry shakes and eating Greek yogurts. I started to take the post-op make me heal multivitamin the day following sx. I am not sure why, but as of last night I am having trouble swallowing liquid and food. It feels a bit uncomfortable as it passes down my chest. My guess is the constantly eating and drinking while laying down on my stomach. I wish the office had an on call cell phone, but I will call Monday to ask them what is up with that. I am now eating while standing up and waiting at least 15 minutes to lay back down. The multipurpose funnel has been of great use when having to take a piss, keeps everything centered. I am applying the arnica gel and waiting to see if that works. My vagina is very swollen and I keep placing a cool pad on it to bring it down but I do not see a difference. So ladies hope I did not miss anything. For now I will go back to bed because I am beginning to feel the pressure down there. TTYL!! I have posted some pics of how swollen I am.

Back bra roll=200
I haven't reach 2 weeks yet and I am disappointed to report I have lost 1 1/2 inches of my butt. Before gaining all the weight I was 37 1/2, post-op I was 42 1/2 and now I am 41. I knew I was going to loose but not that fast. I blame it on the departure back to NY. I am not sure why but that morning I woke up feeling more pain than usual around my stomach. I could not quite point out what was hurting so much. I tried going to the bathroom, but it did little. I figured I would eat light so I had gatorade and a greek yogurt. I was starting to feel a bit nauseous but dismissed the feeling as nothing. As I am in the car on our way to the airport, feeling hot as hell but mind you it is really cold, I was on the phone talking to the airline. The nauseous feeling came back, and as soon as I got off the phone I pulled out a plastic bag and puked. I felt such a relief. It may have been the food I had the night before at Cici's. I know it was not what the Dr. ordered but it was a cheap dine. I was on the phone with the airline because I noticed I had not paid much attention when arranging the booking for car rental return time and departure time. So it ends up that I had to return the car at 12 pm and my flight was not until 8:50 pm. That meant that lil me and the crew were going to be stuck in the airport for 8 hrs. My 1 1/2 year old nephew would have been extremely irritable and my legs would have looked like tree trunks by the end of the day. Soo, I decided to list us to fly stand by. Because going through security was so lengthy and disastrous I missed the 1:15 pm flight, so I had to set us up for the following two next flights just in case. I was told the following flight was full, but to wait and see because you never know. Luckily they had room for us. We took the available separate seats. All I kept thinking was "ok this should not be that bad, the flight is only 2 hrs" but boy those 2 hours seemed like eternity to me as my little fat cells were dying within. I was a bit thankful I was able to get the first coach aisle seat, so I would not be so disruptive when getting up. I used the boppy pillow when sitting and still noticed that by the end of the flight I was feeling so much pressure at the top of my butt. I had informed the flight attendant that I had just undergone surgery and I could not sit for a long period and he suggested I could stand by my seat or stand in the bathroom, but I was not allowed to stand in the area right in front of the cockpit due to their strict regulations. Which I understood and since the plane was so small there was no space at the back of the plane. So, I sat most of the time and I went to the bathroom twice and stood in as much as I could. My sister who was sitting behind me noticed people looking at me weird, but I really did not care. I guess you get so preoccupied about the survival of your new butt that people's stares goes out the window.
The bruising on my legs have reduced a bit, specially on the top. However, it seems like some of the bruising is moving lower on my left leg. The swelling still seems to remain the same on my left leg. I just keep remembering what someone posted about their legs looking the same as mine and it all went away by the end of the second week. I had bought bromelain before I left but did not take it to GA. Now that I am back home I have started to take it daily along with the post-op make me heal pills. I have also notice that my hips do not look the same. I am not sure if some of the fat that was transferred to my right hip has been reabsorbed or is just the extreme swelling on my left leg that throws it off. I know it is really early to tell so we will see if it improves with time. That is all the update for now.

I still have hardened swelling on the top of my thighs, more so on my left leg. The bruising seems to be diminishing. I am religiously applying arnica after every shower and massaging it with sesame oil before the shower. I also use the sesame oil to massage all the other areas I got lipoed. The bruising seems to have moved lower towards my knee and that has been a bit painful when on my knees or laying for two long. It has been like that for the past few days. Yesterday I had to take Tylenol before going to sleep, because of the intense pain. After much looking I found a License Massage Therapist that performs lymphatic drainage massage around my way. My first massage is tomorrow and I am sooo excited for it. I cannot wait to get this stomped up fluid out of my leg. He is charging me $70. I am aiming for 4 massages. I don't know we will see, because my pockets are hurting really bad.
I had also taken pics of the supplies I had gathered. I should have done it before but did not get a chance. I will try and post them. Ohh, I also have to give credit to the HYATT hotel. I have never been in such an accommodating hotel. We had several concerns and staff took care of them very quickly. At first I assumed that the room would automatically have a microwave but It was provided upon request. They even provided plates and utensils, since I forgot to buy some while shopping for food. The morning staff was really really nice always attentive to any needs we may have had. The only suckie part was that they only had an outside pool and of course it was closed, so my accompanying darlings could not go for a swim and enjoy themselves. Anyways, that is it for today. Continued good wishes on your butt journeys.

- 21 Feb 2013
- 1 month post
LYMPHATIC MASSAGES-So far I have gotten 3 massages, first one was a light lymphatic massage and the rest were with a little more pressure to tackle those hard spots and lines that have been building up on my sides. The therapist reassures me that I am healing well, and that I should not worry too much about the hardened tissues. This will go away with time and with the massages it will go away even faster. Besides the professional massages, I try to imitate somewhat of what the LMT does when I am back at home. I found this hand massage device I had laying around at home. I have used it and if feels soo good except when I reach those hard spots on the side. It burns a bit, but I keep going, applying more pressure little by little. The dents from the hard lines on the sides are a bit noticeable when I twist. I skipped massage today. I rescheduled for next week on Thursday.
GARMENT-I am not sure how you ladies do #2 with these damn garments but I have to take it off. I no longer feel comfortable taking a dump with a tight compression on my belly as well as the odd position I have to be in just to let it loose. I know this may sound crazy but I am still wearing the same garment Dr. J supplied me with. I mentioned I bought one but it did not work for me, so I stood with this one. I am sick of having to wash it by hand every other day but those garments are expensivee. At this point I am going to take it to the seamstress to get it smaller or tell my moms, since she does that kind of stuff. In a few days I will be 6 weeks and I will not need to wear the garment all day and I could officially rid of that triangle piece. I may opt out to just wearing the vest. I am soo looking forward to my 6 weeks. Wooohoo.
BACK AT WORK-I have been back at work almost for three weeks and the first day was torture. I was soo flustered and irritated with trying to sit down with boppy pillow, without either having my butt touch the chair or having the chair roll out right from under me. Many times I almost ended on the floor. Would not have been a pretty look. On the second day I had to beg my hubby to take me to Bed Bad & Behond to get a back support pad/something like it. I found what they call a Kiss My Back. It is a mesh back support. I was thinking about getting more of a firmer cushion for back support, but this was all I found at the local stores. It works for now. Staples had a WTF for a back support; I am like really you might as well have nothing. I really can’t kneel on the floor being that we have a very transit environment for clients, so it does not look presentable at all. Once I know the appointments die out at the end of the day I kneel, this is the most comfortable position for when I do data entry. All the other times I am either standing or sitting with my thighs on a long pillow. Oh yea, I had to replace the boppy pillow, because of all the complications mentioned earlier and it was too fastidious to keep folding it and it was just too damn big. So, I also bought a firm (not too too firm) long pillow that I could place right under my thighs from Bed Bad & Behond. I will take a pic so you guys could see what I am working with. With both types of pillow I experience that the circulation to my legs get cut short, so as soon they start to feel funny I get up. I did lipo to my inner thighs, leaving it sensitive. Therefore, when I stand up after sitting for some time I immediately feel a burning sensation in my inner thighs. If anyone ask why am I standing so much I tell them my back is hurting, because I injured it while picking something heavy. The one’s that are aware just laugh at me every time they look at me. As far as noticing my new butt, nobody has made any comments. I believe I have been doing a good job at concealing it. Presurgery I was a size M or 4/5, fairly small. So in order to hide the triangle, the lipo-express board that I wear at times, the dents that the garment makes right below my butt and the shape of my new butt I chose to wear a 10. When I went shopping I had tried an 8 and it did not want to go past my butt. I was a little happy to see that, I am not going to lie. However, these size 10 pants are leaving big gap in the back because of the small waist, I just wear a belt. At first, when sitting, I noticed that my garment would crease in my stomach big time. It would divide it into two bulges and felt more soreness in the area. I decided to start trying the board and it has help. It keeps my belly nice and flat, wrinkly free. Can I say I HAAAATTTEE peeing at my job. I do not have my funnel and because of that I always seem to make a mess. I commute to and from work via train. I just skip on all the seats and try to place my little booty out of harms way.
MISCELLANEOUS-I bought a few items that I thought may help me through out this process like the the 6 x 6 foam pad to use to lay down and a camping chair that looks like the cane chair but much smaller, and finally gave in to buying the epi-foam pads. I wanted to buy the face down pillow, but my budget does not allow it. Those massages are $120 a check, leave me almost dry. Soo, the foam pad at this point I wish I could sell it, which I might. I hardly used it, well I attempted to use it but my whole bottom will sink in deeper and deeper. I may have created the whole two big. I bought two but I still sink in too deep. The chair works form when I am in the living room. I use it to rest my thighs on it, leave my butt in the air and lay my upper back on the sofa propped up on a pillow. I DO NOT KNOW why I did not buy an epi-foam sooner. Using these is way better than a maxi pad. I spent so much money on maxi pads, but they were too flimsy. I not only used it for the creasing on the sides but I HAD to use it everyday on my crotch to prevent a painful camel toe from the garments. Replacing the maxi pad with the epifoam really helped with the discomfort from the garment creasing at the sides. One day I was getting ready to shower. While I was trying to pull out the triangle, the long padding that comes with it came off the tape. So I am like whatever I'll just replace it with the epifoam, and it works soo much better.
INCISIONS- I know Dr. Js instructions stated to leave the steristrips until they fall off, but until this week I still had some on. It was irritating the shisss out of my skin, so I took them all off. Some are more itchy than others. I apply Mederma on them every day now. The ones that were still open are sealing up, as well as the drain hole. I also apply pure Vitamin E oil & Cocoa Butteer to my booty and my stomach, to help with the itchiness and just to keep it moisturized.
FEELINGS-My butt has been at 40 1/2 for the past 2 weeks. My original was 37, yea I know not that far off from 40. Honestly, so far I could say that I am a somewhat happy with my results at my 1 month mark. My stomach is flatter than before, even though I still have a little pouch left but that I know still needs some time for the swelling to come down. My butt though is bit sketchy. I could have sworn I asked Dr. J to give me an upside down heart shaped booty, since day one I have a shelf. I do find myself questioning what I stated to him before I went into sx. No joke. Hopefully, hopefully, hopefully it drops as it softens up more. It does jiggle a little now when I walk. I am definitely more flexible now. I became fully independent at 4 1/2 weeks. I was able to put my socks on, put soap on my feet and wash my child without help. Just this past week I was able to take off and put on my garment all on my own. Yaayyy. First time I was a bit hesitant, but I did it. Ok ladies until next post. I will post pics. BTW how do I add my doctor. I wrote his name but I do not see his picture next to it.

My Doctor: Join to view doctor's name
I chose Dr. Jimerson from looking at his work through reviews and looking that his credentials were up to date. Aside from the results he produces the location is only 2 hours away compared to the other doctors and he offered a few perks like the 30 day post-op insurance. The only thing as of yet that I disliked about the office is unable to get a hold of anyone. I know they all work hard and are always busy, but maybe Dr. Jimerson should hire more staff to assist with the increase in demand. I was assigned Monica but I mostly interacted with Michelle when I called and she was really helpful. At the office with Shelly and Kim, they were really nice. Aside from that is too soon to determine if it was worth it or not. I have to give it at least three months for the results to really unfold.
