I made it out

No comments yet.. its day 3..feeling ok.. mixed emotions about the whole experience/ setting, etc... when I look in the mirror... smh... is all I hv to say

post op 5 days

Pics 4 u guys..let me kno

garment

How do I know if my butt in garment is too small or large for the butt. Should it b snug or loose on booty?

must need items for 1st few days

1. Meds and Vitamins..Every 4 hr pain meds management.. Don't miss 1 pill the first few days. Day 9 i'm not taking any vicaden. Every time I took pain meds no matter time off day I ate 5 or so crackers with a drink of my choice to wash down then meds.
2. T-SHIRTS
3. Day of sx Yo grandma robe (for real) nothing else. Literally they take u in mark u up and off to the sx table u go!
4. 4 maxi dresses( bareley left room)
5. Maxi pads for garment protection
6. Gauze, antibotics ointment & tape
7. Arnica gel and tabs
8. Antibacterial soap
9. A love one
10. Socks
11. Food( whatever you can tolerate. I ate soup, salads, fish sandwich, grouper, cabbage, veggies, crakers wit pb & then tuna.
12. Gatorade, pinr apple juice
13. Firming lotion
14. Alot of Walking around helps with the stiffness.
15. Headband for tubes when showering ( better than suctions they were a waste of $$ for me)

pain & stiffness

Pain was manageable with med control, stiffness got me more..I had my arms done too so its very uncomfortable to lay on yo belly with arm pain and discomfort..other than that. Hopefully no1 touches yo lipo areas or butt and u will b good.

my dislikes and disappointments

I didnt like the fact that some of the staff i came in contact with didnt speak good English and had a hard time understanding me as I did them. I just felt like I didnt pay 8999 to have the language barrier . I cuda paid 3500 and went to the DR ( out the country) if I was interested in putting up with that mess. After expressing my concerns with the language barrier Dr. Salam fixed it immediately by address my concern and offering me a satisfying solution. I was disappointed because Dr. Salama told me in my pre op..(I chose to go fwd) I will not hv a great big ole booty because i'm not built to hv 1 because of the elasticity of my skin but I did get 1300 cc's per side. Which day 1 post look like a little booty..but then day 2..demanded to speak wit Dr abt my concerns and he eased all my sorrows and regret with a very detail explanation along witb changing me into the butt in garment and it wasn't until then tht I honestly saw a big difference in my butt..my hubby and bbl sista told me I was good but I didnt c or feel it.. ladies we have to honestly wait and c the bigger picture on this house we are trying to build.

my stay @ courtyard by Marriott aventura

1 word
AWESOME

plane ride home

God is good!
Flew home thanksgiving day...No delays/cancellations or bad weather
Didn't get wheelchair service because I decided I am gonna get me an exit row and u cant b handicap asking for an exit row.. It was a Male ticket agent at the gate and I knew I had it then.. soooo I turned on my charm and there u go A WHOLE EXIT ROW TO MYSELF. Had to sit on boppy for take off and landing(leaned fwd on seat in front of me lucky no1 was there eitha) otha than tht I lay in thr 3 rows of seat. Smooth 2.10 hr flight.. Im lucky and blessed. God is good!

today's challenges

Finding comfort to lay down or sit down..
1. cane chair (waste of $)
2. Yoga mat to hard leg falls to aleep after sitting for a while.
3. Ass to wide for beach/lawn chair to be cut out.
4. Hubby bought $40 camping chair. .(yet to be determined)
5. Foam cushion..its hard to get in initially (still working on it)
6. Face down pillow ( who wanna lay like tht so I use it for the height and firmness to lift head for tv watching)
7. Massage table (yet to be determined)
All the shit I bought and nothing is comfy for long periods.

Garment choice

Wearing the butt in garment for now an maybe for the entirety..(one of his staff members had her butt done 2mths ago an wore the butt in garment since day1 and her ass is so phat , round & beautiful). it gave me form on my ass.. no irregular looking butt..also its more comfy and ez to potty..I hv not noticed fat loss.. not much compression on butt the material tht go over yo butt is made out of the material like a pair of panties.

comfort

sitting backwards on the toilet is where im most comfortable. .. a mess! But true

must have

P ez female urinal!! The best thing

she feels my pain

Love her, my road dog (literally)

The pic with the doggie its so adorable. I like your transformation, i have the same feeling about my results even though i didnt have it yet. I feel like my fat is not easily accessible and my skin id too tight so i am kinda understanding what my results will be. We're all different. I havent had consultation just sent dr salama pics and so far he only told me to gain weight but i know that he can only tell me details after he will look and touch my body, i heard thatsthe only way they can asses
