BBL in a Few Weeks ((: - Houston, TX

I am absolutely unhappy with the shape of my body...

I am absolutely unhappy with the shape of my body right now. I have a big belly but very thin legs and no butt at all. I am super flat. I hate shopping for clothes because nothing fits right. I have been wanting to do this for a long time but wasn't sure if i should. I finally got to the point where i was ashamed of going out. I decided to do this, i mean if i don't look better after surgery there is no way i can look worse.. lol

i am about a week away! i am sooo excited!! i have my medications all ready! my last final is this monday but I'm too nervous to actually focus and study! i will post some pictures up before friday though, most likely monday after my final! i cantttt wait! according to my doctor i was too thin and had to gain about 20 extra lbs, and well I'm getting there! buttttt i found a stretch mark on my belly!! i hope that after the lipo and the swelling i don't get any more :/ ill be back soon! i really have to study and pass these classes!! :D

Ahhhh!! surgery day is tomorrow!! I'm excited and...

ahhhh!! surgery day is tomorrow!! I'm excited and scared!! i wanna get it over with already :]]

Ok, the day of surgery, surprisingly I wasn't nervous nor scared.. I was told to pee in a cup [prego test], and to go into the lil room.. She told me to get completely undressed and put on one of their gowns! The nurse put an IV in my hand and told me to sit down while they tested that. The doctor came in about 5 mins after the nurse left and he stated to mark, asked me if I though it was a right place to do the insistion or not so I was able to give my opinion, he maked all the spots and colored them in, I sat down again and told me the anesthesiologist was going to come in in a few mins to give me the "feel good juice". Anesteologyst came in next, injected clear liquid in my IV. She walked me into the operating room and as soon as i walked it felt as if i was getting drunk from one second to the other! She told me to lay down, I blinked and when I opened up my eyes, It was over! I laid there for about an hour before she said it was ok to leave, I sat on a wheel chain and rolled me all the way to the car, I sat down on my tummy the whole day there. I got home and knocked out! My mom made me jello, so I ate a lil bit every time I would wake up(: I also ate soup :] I felt soo nauseous all day tho,  I was starving but I felt like I was going to throw up.. Soo mostly ate saltines and water. The pain was moderate, I was able to get and walk around with no pain, I was some what still drugged out because as soon as the anesthesia got out of my system my body was in so much pain! I slept all day yesterday and all night too, I got up a few times to pee and I found the easiest way to pee was like a boy..,my sister slept next to me all night just in case I needed something! I'm swollen and it hurts when I move right now .. I can honestly say this is one of the worst pains ive ever been in.. It's an 8 on a scale 1 to 10, it huts like a mfuckr, even when im just laying down! I got my whole back lipoed, my bottom belly, my sides, my arms, my top belly, my love handles, I'm super swollen and the bruises are black so far, Imma go back to my nap, I'll keep  you girlies posted (:

So far 3 months have one by and I feel great! I love the results! It's more than I expected! The Dr was able to put 650 cc on each side, I'm more than happy! I'm going to take my side by side pics the 1st week of April! I know it's a lil late but Imma post my after surgery pics [:

2 year update.....

Its been a while since i last updated, its been 2 years and not a lot of the fat survived. I am happy with what survived because believe it or not my booty looks way better than it did before. My pants sagged a lot and now they fit, ofcourse i am hopping for a big and fat booty one day but atleast for now i dont have the dents anymore. I am starting to save up once again and go for a 2nd round. Oh and btw, i never once said my Doctor was Dr.Cortes, i do not know why people started to assume. He was NOT my doctor.

That's just a tummy tuck nothing else and it might not even be Cortes work. When you go to Cortes your happy to tell people. The fact that she won't say who she went with tells you she don't want anyone to know. Clearly you can see just a tummy tuck though.

Obiviously she must be unhapy with her result to not respond back to us. I actually had a consultation with the same dr and he seemed like he didnt have much experience. plus he used the laser lipo prcedure which can actually kill the fat. he was trying to charge me 5000 which is cheap.
