Hello every one, five days from now I will be having body sculpture andBBL with implants with Dr.Cortes in houston. I'm trying to get everything ready for post op care.

Day 3 swelling

Recovery

As soon as I woke up from surgery I felt good. A few hours later I was getting up by myself to use the bath room and walking around. The days to follow we're going well, I was even wearing heels! On the 9th day I started noticing fluid coming out of my wound where the implants are and high fevers. I called the doctors office and they imidiately put me on a regimen of antibiotics and instructions on how to clean the site. The next day I saw the doctor and he told me this is not unusual. The are is not infected but we must keep a close eye on it. He cleaned it and noticed I lost a suture. He send me home with it open (small hole) and said to let it drain. He will close it tomorrow. Meanwhile I am in a lot of pain. I got a new girtle with the but out and it's so tight that it causes so much pain, so I am not wearing anything at the moment. I am not feeling so great rite now, feel like iv regressed in my recovery. I feel like day 1 again but with not the same high spirit. I know it will be ok, I just go used to no pain and now here I am again. The results are looking great so that's good.

28 days

Recovery has been tough, I hate sleeping on my belly and the swelling in my body is driving me crazy. I can't wait to start the massages so it will go down. Butt looks good and bruising is almost all gone.

Almost a month!

Looking better, swelling has gone down a little bit.

Can't believe it's me!

5 months post op

Improvement

Very unhappy and emotionally distraught. I paid to look like a monster with out clothes or faja on.

I had unnecessary complications with my implants for 6mo (Acording to 2 other doctors) and after that time I lost one implant to a suspected infection and had them both removed.
I have lipo burns on my stomach and back and my stomach is defigured. I was told that it was just sewelling but after consulting with other PS and swing similar reviews on here I feel the need to speak out.

Sent an email to jazmine with bellavita

So I am supper excited! I just emailed jazmine with bellavita. I told her what I need help with and now I'm just waiting on the price so I can pay and then make contact with Dra.Duran.
I just had to share that because I'm so anxious!!

Yay yay I can't wait!!!

I just paid my invoice to bellavita so now I'm just waiting to get my quote! I requested quotes from Duran and cabral as a back up. I can't tell you girls how anxious I am to feel like myself again!!!
I want bbl, tummy tuck, bl & ba done. I hope it all goes well
