im 20 yrs old 5'2 3/4 exactly i weigh 145. i havent done any measurements on my stomach yet but i will soon. i have been wanting this for so long just like many other women on here i had my first son at 16 so i can say my body hasnt been the same since. i wanted to do liposuction and butt implants but when i went for a consulation in houston tx to dr.eismen (i think that was his name it was a yr ago when i went) he told me about the bbl he would do 200cc to each cheek and i didnt know what cc ment so i asked him if that is enough for the desired butt i really want (j.lo/kimk butt) he said he couldnt tell me that answer and that 30% of my fat will just disappear.

That is why i prefered the implants to give me the desired look i actually want instead of worrying about my fat just disappering. i have been hearing alot of things about implants though very negative. i seen so many pictures on here that have done the bbl and look great! so im super excited i have been getting so much info about docters and talk to actual girls who had the procedure done is awesome!

I know damn well i can get wayy more cc with my amount of fat now that ive been on this site i know what is very little cc and whats the most for a big butt. i sent a consultation request to dr. salma but i havent got any reply or phone call back. does anyone know how am i suppose to get a consultation if i live in houston and he is in florida?

Ok so feb.29. i got a response from ruben. He gave me a qoute and that i will have to put 10% down he told me i would need to send him pictures thru a secured e-mail and he will give me his opinions and from there on we will discuss scheduling my surgery date! the money i need to pay up front is to hold my spot!

im trying to go for financing as an option also it would be alot better.
i dont really have to much earned credit tho i only pay my school loan and txu electricity(on time every month) .

Ok so today i finally called the office and ruben answerd. He checked my e-mail and granted me the price of 5899! Thats sounds better! I asked him how many cc could i get he said between 800-1200cc from looking at my pictures! i want 1200cc of course!

Your plastic surgeon should give you a list of the supplies you will need to prepare for lipo surgery and to keep on hand during your recovery. You may be instructed to purchase wound care items such as:

Gauze
Cold packs
Thermometer
Topical antibiotic ointment
Pain medications
Laxatives (to counteract the constipating effect of painkillers)
Moisturizer or scar reduction cream for incision sites
Prepare Your “Nest”

Of course, you will need to take good care of both your body and mind during liposuction recovery. This means you should have everything you want within easy reach of your bed or couch (wherever you plan to spend most of your recovery time). This may include:

Ready-to-eat snacks (put some meals in the freezer too)
Plenty of water and other (non-alcoholic!) beverages
Remote control
Laptop, books, magazines, Kindle, iPod, Xbox, etc.
Cell phone (turn it off when you need to sleep)
Old towels or blankets that you don’t mind getting stained as your incision sites drain
Kleenex and soft cleansing wipes
Heating pad for your back

Before Surgery

Your surgeon may ask you to buy a particular brand of antibacterial soap to bathe with for a few days before your procedure. This kills off staph bacteria on your skin and reduces the risk of infection. Your surgeon will give you helpful tips on what to wear to your surgery (loose clothing you can easily get on and off). You will want to make sure your hair is clean since you might not be able to wash it again for a while. Be sure to follow all instructions about when to stop eating since you will be under anesthesia. Remove nail polish from your fingers and toes so the anesthesiologist can easily see your nail beds. This is one way they monitor your oxygen levels during lipo surgery. Have the person who is driving you home carry any items you will need. That way, you don’t have to worry about leaving something at the hospital or surgical center.

okay today i am a week post-op.

DAY AFTER SURGERY- went in at 8am got home at 6 or 7 pm
i felt like shit i was in so much pain.i dont take pain very well.
i threw up alot.

Let me tell you about my nurse i had she was really sweet but this lady was burping and farting all night and she even got butt naked and took a shower!!
wtf?? the next day i paid for another nurse and this bitch came in pissed off cuz my hotel was not "the best hotel" and cuz i didnt have an extra bed for her to sleep! she said where is the other bed?? i need 8 hrs of sleep so i can take care of you. WTF r u serious! so i told her ass to just leave i want to cancel her service.
so i only had a nurse for 24hrs.

i was really sad and emotional this past week. i felt lonley and i cried alot. i would get really stiff everytime i lay down and then i get up it suxed.
EATING is important. i had alot of headaches i tried to eat but i couldnt really. i chewed ice andd make sure u drink up water so u can pee out the nasy stuff. My urine smelled baddd.

day by day it does get better.little by little. well thats how it was for me. reading evryones journey evryone heals differently.

i read some girls walked for hours and felt beter i walked to a couple of stores and around the mall and i felt sick and tired and my ankles were swollen!!

Today i was disappointed in Nomie because I in to pay for my 3rd massage before i left to go home (i had to pay larry extra 20 just for the trip to the massage that made me mad he said that it wasnt in the package) she removed my drains and i told her i still felt swollen around the vaginal area she said thats normal it will go down i just need compression over that area. i said okay ill put a waist cincher on she was like ya and so on.

i went back 2 pm for my massage and the massuse i forgot her name she spoke pretty good english i think it was cynthia?
idk but she looked at me and said what size is your garment ? i said large. have u had it changed ? i said ya i got a meduim at home cuz it didnt fit me yet.
she was shaking her head. she said the garment i had on is only good for a week and then i need to put on a different "type" of garment. she said i need lipo express. it has more compresion.SHE said i need to talk to jennifer and she told nancy about it and had nancy confront jennifer to give us the lipo express not just a smaller size in the same garment.

so she ordered me the lipo express. she said they no longer carry it in the office but she made some calls and had them deliver it to them.

when i got naked to was so mad because she said "OMG OMG NO NO NO YOU HAVE ALOT OF FLUID" she called in nancy again and had her video record me and her touching my stomach and she send it to dr.

She did my massage OMG THAT WAS THE PAIN EVRYONE WAS TALKING ABOUT!!!! IT BURNED LIKE HELL IT HURTED I CRIEDD !! LIKE MY FACE WAS SWOLLEN FROM CRYING. MY FIRST 2 MASSAGES DID NOT FEEL THAT WAY AT ALL!!!

THEY DEMANDED I GO BAK AT 6PM TO REMOVE THE FLUID BEFORE I WENT BACK HOME. The massuse WAS VERY UPSET THAT NOMIE DIDNT NOTICE ANYTHING.

IF IT WASNT FOR THE MASSUSE I WOULD HAVE WENT HOME LIKE THAT!!!!

THE DR CAME IN REMOVED 60 CC OF FLID BUILT UP HIM NOT DR SALAMA BUT SUM OTHER DUDE HE HAS GRAY HAIR HE WORKS IN ORLANDO HIM AND HIS WIFE HELPED ME PUT ON MY NEW GARMENT AND HE POKED AROUND FOR FLUID AND HE SAID THERE WAS NOMORE. RUBEN WAS THERE THE OFFICE WAS ALREADY CLOSED BUT THEY WAITED FOR ME TO DO THAT .

LET ME TELL YOU WHEN I STARTED WALKING I FELT SO MUCH BETTER I COULD WALLK WITH MY BACK STRAIGHT B4 I WAS WALKING KINDA HUNCHED OVER. I FEEL LIKE THEY LIFTED WEIGHT OFF MY PELVIS!! IT FEELS SO MUCH BETTER.

THIS GARMENT HAS MORE COMPRESS BUT I ITS FEELS TIGHT ON THE BUTT KINDA NERVOUS ABOUT THAT

By the way i lovee my results!!!!

by the way i lovee my results!!!!

Wow so many thoughts are running through my head....

Wow so many thoughts are running through my head. I missed my family during g this whole trip like I feel like I never want to leave them. And I realized how much they actually do care because they were just so worried and everyone was calling me all day and might my Gma Gpa auntie my coworkers. I felt appreciated. Haven't felt that way in a while. One thing I couldn't stop thinking about my mom. I was honestly upset cuz she ended up not going and it hurt really bad. I feel like I can just vent on here. I never do this on Facebook! I don put my biz on here but since you don't know me its all good! My son I felt so bad he told my mom "my mommy is never coming back " she said "yes she is why do u think that" " my daddy never did" the. He said " I don't want to talk about it anymore" omg I will never ever again leave him like this. If u didn't already know his dad ended up in jail I put that in my previous post. My poor baby he is 4. I can't wait to see him!! I'm at the airport getting ready to arrive home !! Will update as much as possible. Sometimes I don't have to much energy but I will keep u updated on everything!!


Thank you so much for your comments and prayers!!

I'm home yay! I feel so good! A breath of...

I'm home yay! I feel so good!

A breath of fresh air... Ahhhhhhh



Ok plane ride home for me- I had 2 stops the first arrival the man next to me gave up his seat so I can have all 3 rows to myself!! How sweet ! I didn't even give the letter to the flight attendant cuz they really looked like they didn't care but I made it clear I'm had surgery there is no way possible I can sit down because of my "abdominal area ". He was just like uhh ok we' ll see I we can work with you. So for take off I put the bobby pillow down and put all my weight on my arms. Had to lift myself they had no problem no one paid attention the. I laid down the rest of the way. No problems. The next flight kinda sucked. I was stuck with a full row and the flight attendant made a big issue about me having to be sitting without the pillow I stood up and said I had no issue before y r u giving me a hard time this is the only way I can sit! He went and was trying to say the. I can't stay I on the plane! Fuck that I was like sir the flight attendants before helped me with this issue I made it clear I had intens surgery . So this dude stood up and gave up his seat which was 2 empty seats. Let me tell u I was cramped up but hey I didn't sit on my but. I made it through!

Sleeping uncomfortable
Cut out butt part of lipo express now I need to put more compression on the the tummy meed to buy a waist clincher ASAP
Drinking tea de manzanita helps swelling
Takings vitamins.
I am super sore. My lower back is numb but soft on top of my butt. My butt is not exactly smooth kind of lumpy like cellulite. My legs are huge swollen my knees and my ankles!! I have skinny legs usually. Standing up gets tiring fast for me. I pee like a frog! Ms juicy said the same thing! I eAt on sitting on my knees. My stomach is lumpy!! Is that normal??!?

I will take pics and show u!

One side of my stomach hurts a lot more .
My vagina area where the tube was is super swollen. And the wound is open super nasty.

Ok I haven't been able to go get my 4 th massage...

Ok I haven't been able to go get my 4 th massage yet it's not scheduled till next week but my Gma has been putting pressure on my stomach and massaging it down when she massages me my stomach gets soft. I stand up and it turns hard again.


Now I noticed the right side where I am swollen I pushed down on it and it looks like I have fluid !! Idk how to tell if its a Seroma???
It is really jiggly and it's like a waterbed...push down one side it goes to the other. I started freaking out. But I'm going to stay positive and do whatever I need to do next. I am just wondering how do we prevent this from happening??! From day one I been trying to avoid this situation. Seromas come from aggressive lipo I read. But how do we help stop it from coming??! I'm going to send Ruben a video ASAP in the morning.

Garment-
I took off lipo express since it was useless now that the butt cutt out. I washed my original garment it's a large I put that one back on it feels so smooth and stretchy on my butt I don't think this garment makes u loose inches the material is so different. I put on a lap band over my stomach as tight as I can until I go buy some corsets to put over this garment. I need a lot more compression on this tummy.


I have some burning sensation in my right side of the stomach where that jiggly part is. It burn sometimes when I lift myself up or stretch. I also have a v shaped cut on my right side as if I was burned.


All around my but is soft the middle part of my butt feels firm not as rock hard as it was .
One cheek on top of booty is slightly slightly bigger than the other butt it looks good not notice able unless u stare or look for imperfections.

2weeks post- weigh the same 144 haven't lost...

2weeks post-

weigh the same 144 haven't lost weight I'm 36-28-44 right now butt looks like the swelling is going down but I measured I'm still the same .
I'm swollen around the vaginal area still... kind looks like I'm pregnant like a Lil pooch popped out.
My swelling in the legs and ankles went away.
Seroma is still there. I just might have to get that drained if it doesn't absorb soon. I'm going to post pics tonight. Right now I just got off work so ima take a cat nap!

By the weigh I was over weight he said I had much fat and idk how many cc he took out yet. I didn't ask but I will try to find out. Over 4 liters just in my love handles he said.

Hey my bad i measured wrong--- boob 38 rib...

hey my bad i measured wrong---

boob 38
rib cage 29
waist 27 1/2
butt 43

wearing my work pants they are maternity pants since im still swollen down there and plus im not all the way healed i dont want to go buy new pants yet.

i cant wait to buy new clothes! i just want this swelling to go downn !

i have the foam over my seroma to put more compression on it.

I'm not trying to put anyone down at all I just...

I'm not trying to put anyone down at all I just want all the girls to be aware of the complications "if" any..

I have a burn from the cannula .... It does not bother me at all just when I touch it or something I put neosporin on it.

I'm lumpy ... Ladies say they it goes away I sure pray it does.

I have fluid built up still.
That is my most concern (besides lumps) and to remove it with a drain was a ridiculous price where I'm located. I just started to take water pills today let see if that helps some.

Those are my complications.

My booty I love it!!!!!!
It jiggles and it is getting softer my mom said its not as round as it first was but of course it was rock hard and tight so ya I love my booty!









Some info on liposuction-


Infection: any time the body is incised or punctured, bacteria can get in and cause an infection. During liposuction, multiple small puncture wounds are made for inserting the cannula, that can vary in size depending on the technique.

Damage to the skin: most surgeons work on the deeper levels of fat, so as to avoid wounding the skin any more than they must for the insertion of the cannula.
Sometimes the cannula can damage tissue beneath the skin, which may show up as a spotted appearance on the skin surface.
Skin necrosis (dead skin) is a rare complication, in which the skin falls off in the necrotic area. The problem can vary in degree. The resulting wound then needs to heal typically requiring extended wound care.
Puncture of an internal organ: since the surgeon cannot see the cannula, sometimes it damages an internal organ, such as the intestines during abdominal liposuction. Such damage can be corrected surgically, although in rare cases it can be fatal. An experienced cosmetic surgeon is unlikely to puncture any internal organ.

Contour irregularities: sometimes the skin may look bumpy and/or withered, because of uneven fat removal, or poor skin elasticity. Not all patients heal in the same way, and with older patients the healing may be slower and a bit imperfect. Sometimes a small touch-up procedure can help.

Thromboembolism and fat embolisation: although liposuction is a low-risk procedure for thromboembolism including pulmonary embolism, the risk cannot be ignored.[8]

Burns: sometimes the cannula movement
can cause friction burns to skin or nerves. Also, in UAL, the heat from the ultrasound device can cause injury to the skin or deeper tissue.

Lidocaine toxicity: when the super-wet or tumescent methods are used, too much saline fluid may be injected, or the fluid may contain too high a concentration of lidocaine. Then the lidocaine may become too much for that particular person’s system. Lidocaine poisoning at first causes tingling and numbness and eventually seizures, followed by unconsciousness and respiratory or cardiac arrest.

Fluid imbalance: since fat contains a lot of fluid and is removed in liposuction, and since the surgeon injects fluid for the procedure, even a very large amount of it for tumescent liposuction, there is a danger of the body’s fluid balance being disturbed. This could happen afterwards, after the patient is at home. If too much fluid remains in the body, the heart, lungs and kidneys could be badly affected.
The cosmetic surgeon should give the participant a written list of symptoms to watch for, along with instructions for post-operative self-care.

Sometimes i think maybe some of us needed more than one kind of procedure. It just feels like lipo is not the only thing needed maybe i need abdomal plasty or maybe i just needed to loos more weight so i wont have that pouch down there. i feel the same as i did before i still feel fat. Maybe thats just my insecurities?

I want to shape out my butt rounder and i want to take out the fat from the back and i want to remove the fat left right under my boobs. my side view of my butt is crazyy i love it. the back i want it a little more shaped out. i defenitly know he can curve my waist more. man this gets so addicting!!! uhhhh us women are something else!!! i laugh at the idea doing it all over again like really are you serious but heyyy...u know you just gotta make sure its the right way to go. The thing for me thats stopping me the scars on my butt crack they are huge!!!! i hate it you can feel my scar and see it so gross and bumpy. I dont want moreee scars i scar so uglyy.

I still am not satisfied with my stomach its so puffy well it's not flat like I wish it would be I have tiny little rolls. I can defenitly do normal things like sit and all that butt if I sit to long my butt hurts and I have this tingling feeling on my hips. I still sleep on my stomach and drive with a bobby it's much more comfortable. I haven't had a massage over a month my stomach is still hard and the lump never smoothed out when I stretch its kinda feels super tight my skin! A Lil burn feel.
