Excited!

I am very excited that surgery is fast approaching. My initial contact with Dr. CORTES was via email and phone with Lucy around the middle.of June 2013. They reviewed my pictures and gave me a
consult via email.and surgery date due
to me being an out of town patient. My
preop at the hospital and visit with Dr. will be 2 weeks before my surgery on the same day. I am very excited to see what he will tell me. I didn't loose any more weighy because I want at the least 1600cc in each buttock and at least 300cc on each hips. Any suggestions anyone?

Hi. I would suggest buying crackers, soup, jello, prune juice & 2 cases of water, disposable waterproof bed pads, ice packs (help a lot with the discomfort on the lower back).

HI LADIES! WHICH TYPE OF TUMMY BOARD SHOULD I GET(flexable?)...SHOULD.I GET A BACK BOARD ALSO??? And what else shall i gey while there? THANKS DOLLS!!!
My BBL surgery with Dr. Cortes is Sept 17th. Can he do the shelf bubble butt? I've never seen a pic of him doing one. Jimerson is known for the shelves, but I canceled my appointment with him, due to the posts here that he's been off his game a little. I like the way Cortes does his bbl's, but I do kinda like the shelf look myself too.
Reply
My pre-op with him is tomorrow. I hope he can achieve this I think it would take about 1800 C C's and an additional incision at the bottom of each cheek to make it pop out the bottom also I will update you guys tomorrow on what he says I hope an additional implant is not needed. Good luck doll!!!

I can't wait to hear what he tells you. I think I'm gonna take the shelf pic you posted to him and see what he says....LOL!

Lips!

Hi sisters...10 days preop..excitment building. ..well here's another reason to be excited... he said he could inject my lips with some of the fat!!!! Yayyyyyy I'm super excited..now I have to find wish lip pics also!!!!
Yay! On the Lips...pease take before and after photos or your lips...I like the idea...I am going to ask my PS to inject some of my "beautiful fat too"!

Yessss I'm trying to get everything I can. ..can't waste this precious fat...didnt know it woukd come n handy.

That's what I like about cortes. He'll withdraw and inject fat wherever it's needed without all that "extra expense" game. Glad you're getting some lips too! I hope he's real aggressive with my arms. My arms are so HUGE with fat, and I've never been able to wear a sleeveless dress in my life.

garmet!

How long should I wear it? How many months? After 1 month how mant hours a day? After 2 months??? After 3 months???? Anyone have a guide?
I wore my garnment for close to 2 months. After that i switch it to a Veddette waist cincher XS which was really comfortable for me to wear and shaped my waist really good. i still wear it once in a while because I'm so used to it. Hope that helps. But keep in mind if you are still very swollen at 2 months you still need to wear the compression garment a little longer. Cortes recommends 2 months the least.

You know when I first discovered Dr. Cortes here at Realself and looked at his photo gallery I was highly impressed on the way he shaped full figure women. The size of the butts were a little on the small side for my liking, , nevertheless they were still very well shaped. It wasn't until I saw Mariel2013 that I was like dauuuuummm-I'm convinced! There were so many Texas ladies here at Rs that said Texas BBL docs have a reputation for giving "Conservative" size butts. Maybe, the docs were following the patients request? All I know is that Dr. Cortes is putting Texas on the map for giving badonkadonks with tiny waists and dangerously curvaceous hips! Dr. Cortes is to Texas what Dr. J is to Georgia! Except Dr. Cortes's work far exceeds due to his impeccable sculpting and aggressive lipo skills! IMO... Now here comes cuticutie on the seen swaying those hips and ass! Now LadyB is next up and I know you are going to be the next Cortes Angel!

I know I haven't gone through this type of swelling yet but here's a little good advice for swelling.Don't know if ya plan on making pineapple juice like a lot of ladies do but if so,you can snack on bits of the frozen p apple throughout the day too.I use it for tummy aches/indigestion around here & the once per month bloat.Thaw it in mouth til it's chewable & works like a charm.I like to have it on hand being that It's hard to always have fresh.

Q2Hrs!

Its like I was discharged with this invisible order to up and peeing Q2Hrs (every 2 hours). Guess my body and this lasix working together and on one accord. Now lets see if they let.me make it to 4 hrs this time.:-) 0 pain so I can skip my due dosage . But now I'm always hungry!!!!.Well.good night dolls. Until my next scheduled urination!

4hrs smh..

Umm so yeah..they didn't let me.sleep 4 hrs..I was back up at 4:44am in the bathroom again. Pain pill taken. A little sore. A little discomfort. But this is expected. Nothing out of the ordinary. I wobble like a penguin lol. Hopefully ill.start stretching and drinking my protein shakes to promote healing. I sleep with 8 pillows under me. This really helps. Also the walking every 2 hrs is a big must and helps loosen you up.Well.dolls ill update often letting you know what to expect and letting you know how I'm doing.

Also I've emptied over 200cc fluid from my drain since I arrived home at 3; 30pm yesterday.
Happy healing!!! I am going to go to Cortes too and I know he gave you a BANGING body!!

My New Body!!!

So.even though I'm very swollen..I can tell that donk is huge and my.waist is extra.tiny...Dr. Cortes said.there is.extra.skin at the.bottom.of.my.stomach where.my pouch.was so.I'm going to need a tt in Jan/Feb along with a BA. I went in at 215lbs and the scale now.reads 226lbs...that's a lot of.fluid to drain. They had me.on an iv and hr prior to sx and I ccame off at 12:30pm yesterday..also lost of antibiotics via IV and I've been drinking a lot. My hips were 46" when I went in and 52" when I came out....we will.see all of the other measurments within.a.week or too. I'm.drinking my whey protein and bananna shake and trying.to.stretch. My lower abdomen and inner thighs and inner knees are the sorest spots. Other than that all is wellm

The importance of drinking 100% whey protein!

Protein has its many benefits, and for us who are trying to heal properly and quickly, a main part of our daily consumption. I've learned this from my husband who is a fitness trainer and bodybuilder. The protein helps heal an repair the muscles quickly . It also contains the branch chain amino acids (BCAA) very important to healing. Ladies do your research on this, as it is sure to help.


Tip: I use 2 scoops of protein and a half of a bananna . Take 16 oz.water.and.mix.in blender. Drink within an hour or the bananna may turn brown and make the shake too sweet
Thanks for this info hun.I've been researching which type of protein would be best for healing.There are so many different opinions.

First Shower!

I will start of by saying IT WAS HELL!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH OMG GOTDAMMIT THIS ISH HURTS!!! Now that parts out the way here's how it all went down. I was stuck in the damn garment. We had to tug and pull and tug some more. I screamed. We finally removed it. I observed my body. Bruises everywhere. Lipo burns on my sides. Rashes on my back from the bandages (allergic reaction). Fricton burns on hips from trying to get garment off. Also a burn because I didn't olace foams until I returned home. The bath was very painful, I screamed, I cried, but I survived! It was all worth it because I feel much better. Wayyyyy better than I did with a sponge bath. I'm.so fresh and clean. Now.I'm sore and worn out. Goodnight ladies! !!!

****tip**** Administer pain medication at least 30min-1hr before first shower to decrease pain
Happy Healing Doll!

First Lymphatic Massage

My first massage was yesterday. Heres how it went down:
Sister oh crap its 4pm and we need a bath. So she gave me a shower. (Less painful than the first).
The therapist and her assistant arrived at 5pm. She then did some paperwork and started my massage.
Guess what ??? It wasn't that bad, not bad at all. The areas that were.mostly tender were.under my arms and the leftover folds of skin on my abdomen that will need to be removed with TT. Other than that ot was bearable. I tool a pain pill an hour. Before she arrived because ot takes approximately an hour and a half to kick in.

That night I was up every one or two hours urinating. She said the fluid would be navigating.
Well that's all loves. Recoverys going well....I'm about to add another blog to my page for my next procedure. Check it out.

Tummy tuck needed!

You putting some gel on those burns today?

2 weeks P.O. !!!!

Hi everyone. Recovers going ok. Just having a hard time finding garments. Recieved my lg and xl.squeem. The xl was too large so I'm returning it. The lg is really tighttttt...I just need something to squeezze the bottom of my hanging stomach without squeezing my hips... oh the dilema. I also recieved my Ann Michell Amalia Shorts 2x and they do not fit. They run extra small. I've also recieved my Cindy Powenet too Lg and M. The lg prob would fit if it had a zippermor snaps. I've tried to put it over my head... that was a no go. So I tried to put it on from the legs and it didn't pass my hips. OH WELL.GOTTA RETURN THIS ALSO...HELPPPPPP ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR A 2 PIECE GARMENT????

Swollen Right Leg.

I had my 3rd massage today. It helped yhe swelling again. Then my leg got swollen again today. Anyone have any suggestions to help decrease swelling? I've been drinking the pineapple juice.

***late***

I just ordered a medium squeem. Will be here tomorrow. Hope it fits.
Reply
You're.much smaller than I am..it may be too big. I had to get a large. I ordered another garment from the office. They said just put the corset/squeem on top of the 2x garment to make it fit better on top. They said DO NOT CUT THE BUTT in this particular Bodyshapetech garment. She laughed when I asked would it smoosh my butt lol she said it absolutly would not due to it being mesh in back. She said just add compression to back so the dip.in my back.will stay deep.

Ok, that makes sense. That sounds like that's gonna be the best way to go for us. I too was worried about the butt squishing. LOL

Garment cutting into back

She said just add compression to back so the dip.in my back.will stay deep. They've been having issues when cutting the butt out ...it tends to dig very deeply into the back. Thanks Deanna. I absolutly love his staff especially Deanna and Mariel ?

I'm soooooo glad my husband has a few businesses because if I had to go work for someone else I would be fired.

Hi dolls. So I'm 3 weeks P.O. today. Recovery going ok. I'm in a large squeem in the last hook. Almost time for the medium. My measurments are exactly the same ( strange for the waist because its soooo much smaller and the sqeem is getting looser and looser. Can't wait until the big FLUFF in a few months. My hips have went down some, might add more when I get my TT&BA. Leg still very swollen. The therapist wrapped it last night and will have my 5th session this evening!
