So is that good or bad? Tht its like a purse.
Si u wld prefer to carry around a pillow that is used for nursing a bby and u knw peeps will either ask u why r u carrying that pillow or wheres the bby? It also has pockets to store ur keys etc! So im wandering why u would think a traveling compact item wld be bad experience for u vs a big bulky pillow u have to hand carry vs the compact traveling one?p

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.

Thanks for posting that stuff! I think I'm gonna skip doing my arms. It's nothing I can't fix in the gym. I want inner thighs sucked out tho lol How do you use the headband for drains?

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.

See 1 of my pics its a pink band on my legs

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.

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
