Its not fun as an adult to get you bikini tops...

its not fun as an adult to get you bikini tops from the adult section and ur bottoms from the kids section (and i can only do this @ old navy lol dont judge me!) I am so excited about sceduling my appointment... just waiting for ruben to call me back but i have been stalking this website and id like to thank everyone for posting thier experiences, it has been very informative and even was influential in me chosing DR SALAMA!

I think ive been "butt watching" (as my boyfreind likes to call it) like its a full time job... so im going put my before pics up and let everyone know when my def. sx date is... I hear hes backed up till August im tryna get my spot ASAP...

Good luck

So i was dead set on salama but now im confused!!...

so i was dead set on salama but now im confused!! after dr. pazmino showed me what he could do for me i was sold! and along with him dr. tachmes is so meticulous he only does one surgery a day (which I love)!!! I am at the point where i wanna just draw a name from a hat and make the appointment!!!! whatever i choose It will before this week is OUT.. PROMISE!!!! oh and has any one heard of a dr. suarez in weston fl. hes with globalsurgicalcenter???? they speacilize in sending ppl to dr. for surgery but they also have a place in fl. I feel it should be safe cause he's in the u.s but ive never heard of him... ANYONE???
Yeah, i secured my surgery with Dr Salzhauer back in July of last year when they happen to have a summer deal going on for $6500...thank God! I've been looking at this sight for over 3 months and I have seen more reviews (almost all positive) about Dr Salama. I would suggest him out of the two you are considering. You said you didn't like the fact that he was so busy BUT nevertheless, he does a great job. You can have an great, talented artist draw an amazing picture in no time and another only draw one a day...it's the end product you need to focus on, not the number of surgeries they perform. Salama is going to be busier because he is well sought after because he does a good job. The operation will only last about 2 hours...you have to live with the end result for the rest of your life.

Dr Salzhauer will accommodate the size you want if you have enough fat to achieve it. I wish I could show you my post-op pics but won't have access to a computer until tomorrow. He could only got 500 CCs from me because of my lack body fat but he was able to sculpt my back,waste, and butt in such a way that the little 500ccs look like more.

Bal harbour does excellent work but they quoted me 11,000 dollars.... i was also looking at pazmino and tachmes.... was pretty set on salama but he has so much business right now.... i don't want to go to a surgeon i think may rush b/c he has so much other stuff to do.. tachmes only does one procedure a day and a personal friend of mine went to pazmino so im familiar with his style and i love it.... i just want to make sure everything goes right the first time around and i get what i want

I WANNA DO BIG CARTWHEELS AND JUMP UP AND DOWN!!!...

I WANNA DO BIG CARTWHEELS AND JUMP UP AND DOWN!!! I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH RUBEN AND IM SCHEDULED FOR AUGUST 13TH... SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!! I told Ruben the truth i was supposed to scedule it last week but i had to make sure i was making the right choice and after all the ps i spoke with and the consultaions i did (alot cuz they were free may as well get all opinions), I came back to where i started!! shouldve stuck with my gut maybe i wouldve gotten an earlier appointment.. Anyone going around this time? i may wanna a sx buddy/roomie if possible!

I would just like to add a special thank you to...

i would just like to add a special thank you to vandides (idk if i spelled that right) for having dr. salamas work on thier website....Almost making me switch doctors until I found out that he used to work there and doesnt anymore! I didn't understand why they didn't have the work of their remaining surgeons; which was instrumental in me making my final decision...Salama must be the best if places are willing to lie to get customers in the door.
im went to gnc and got some weight gainer.. i drink 2 16 oz shakes a day and it says with that regiment i should gain 3-4 lbs a week... i got like 4 months im trying to get to 135/140 just wanna be sure i have enough!!! i gained two lbs last week... i expect it to go up n down though cuz some days i only do 1 shake or don't drink all of it... but i think if u do it consistently youll get what you want

I am having the hardest time gaining weight!! Dr. S advised me to try an gain 5-7 lbs for the results i want (even though he said he can get 800ccs at my current weight)...Im hoping to gain anywhere from 10 to 15 lbs and I have three months any suggestions?
Hi Karmazbiach I have the same problem as you in terms of weight gain, I am 5.1 and 112 but the main thing is that all the fat is around my waste. I just stopped doing exercise and eating more white bread sugar etc...that is bound to turn into fat. Main thing is dont exercise and eat a balanced diet high in fat content and sugar, dont stop eating veggies and fruits but eat more cheese, breads, cakes...good luck! I am scheduled for the 14th of May. So far so good.:-)

@ Karmarbiach......I feel ya girl on the weight gain program. Im trying to do the same thing. I order so weight gainner off line called "mutant mass" and so far so good. I have gained a good 4lbs after three weeks. I am trying so hard to get up to 140 lbs but right now Im am between 128 and 129lbs up and down. But this stuff taste good and works fast. I am trying to get 1000cc as well.....so I still have about four more months to gain 11lbs. I cant wait to have this done because all my fat seems to be going to my stomach. But I hope this works for you.

i had surgery at 730 this morning and i must say waking up is not at all as bad as i anticipated. Larrys wife picked me up and took me to my room where my fiance awaited.... Let me also say that he is my rock: from holding my pee cup so i dont get it everywhere to emptying my drains to taking care of our one year old daughter...all at the same time! Im telling you he is superman!
when i got up i was fine when i got to the room i ate some soup and had a gatorade and through it all up. after two cycles of this i decided to only sip the broth of the soup for a while but ive been walking like crazy and i must say my pain level is only bad when i first get in and out of the bed. I havent had but two percs and that was at 1 when i got to my room thats it. now i am eating though...ice cream
Now for the results i recived 1000 cccs which was a total shock cuz im only 126 but i can say that most of it was stomach fat from the baby... my waist looks super small and thats with the foam and severe swelling.. my but is a little big but im taking into consideration the swelling. i cant wait to see final results
ill post pics soon im gonna take some tomorrow at the office... im scared to take this garment off for fear of the pain getting it back on like everyone says...
Putting the garment doesnt hurt as bad as it sounds. I had to put mine on today. However yes eat and drink alot im having severe headaches and throbbing sensations in my head causing me not to sleep although i have no problems getting in and out of bed. Happy healings to you

this morning i went for my post op and i was unable to see the dr. but i did see noamie and nancy and the other two girls that were in the office (cant remember thier names) and i have to say all of salamas staff is right out of a magazine gorgeous. well like i anticipated, taking the garment on and off was a total BITCH noamie lifted me right off my feet trying to put me in it... pain level not bad because ive been walking... still havent really had an appetite but im tryin.. no food = no pain pills. So heres the pics
Did u like the Curtis Inn hotel btw? Do u have pics of your room? Which mall is it by? I've been looking for hotels and the prices are just crazy ridiculous right now.
Reply
you look great! it's going to be perfect after you heal :) ...LOL at Nomie lifting you off your feet...it makes me think of Ruben and Dr. Ghurani both trying to get me in my garment when I had to see them the day after thanksgiving for some blisters...they were both bickering about the best way to get it up..it was so cute. Happy healing and can't wait to hear your updates!
