I have been considering getting a brazilian butt lift for almost a year. I have a butt but would like it a lil bigger & get rid of some of this fat around my waist. I would love to go to Dr Mendieta or Dr Jimmerson but being away from home that amount of time isn't realistic right now. I have 2 jobs so I'd have to be able to get the time off from work. I wouldve gone to Dr Michelle Hardaway but none of her work looks good as far as BBLs go. So I'm starting with a consult with Dr John Sampson since I've seen some of his work and it looks good.
Had my consult yesterday & it seems like we're...

His staff needs a makeover. How you gonna work for a plastic surgeon looking like cheap trash...I'm sorry but its true.
I'm scheduled for April 4th which is good, much sooner than if I went with dr jimerson mendieta or some of the others. My kids will be off that week from school and my boyfriend is here to help me.
Going for all my preop work & appointment @...

I need to work to build my nest egg back up.$$$$$
My boyfriend said I have to wear loose clothes unless I'm out with him. He's already starting but he's like that now because he thinks I have a nice butt already. I do but it could be bigger. It's not flat but this belly and flanks have to go.
Been looking up massage therapists in my area....

Nervous but all that will be over in 9 days. I'm worried about the nausea and being comfortable. I know the pain meds will help me from being in pain and with the soreness.

I do have 2 pics of the shape I want that I'm gonna show Dr Sampson but mostly I just need him to enhance what I have and get rid of this blubber. I'm a realistic person, some wish pics are a bit of a stretch. I don't expect to come out of this surgery looking like Beyonce (she works for that body) has money personal trainers chefs, etc. I'm overweight and I know I will have to work and eat better to keep my results.
My bbl went great. Thank you to all the ladies...

Every day the pain & stiffness gets a little better. I have my iPhone set to go off every 5 -6 hours so I take my pain meds on time. I started with 2 Vicodin at a time now I'm down to one. I think I will wait for the massages because its hard for me to go anywhere right now. My boyfriends car is a 2 seater so we took my car and i was most confortable with laying face down in the passengers seat all the way back laying on a pillow. Most of the pain comes with getting up & down. I'm still very swollen but I started massaging the areas he lipo-ed today with my 29.00 hand held massager. I had to send both my stage 2 garments back, one too big the other too small. Hopefully my new one will arrive in the next few days. The garment Dr Sampson gave me was too big the day after my sx.
Very pleased with my results. He made it look just like what I had just bigger, nicely shaped. I saved a lot of money by not going to Miami or Atl. Going out of the country wasn't even an option for me.
I have a free epifoam (lipo foam) pad that I'm not using if anyone wants it. I also didn't use the Dramamine or Zofran (both for nausea) I also have lovenox (injections) if anyone wants any of this stuff you can pm me. You can have it for free, just pay me for the shipping.
I ordered an extra garment a size large, the...

Had my 2nd post op appt yesterday. Dr Sampsons nurse Kim is sooo sweet, everything she told me about the procedure has been true. My stomach has these weird feelings, sometimes it gets tight in knots, sometimes it feels numb, my sides are still swollen and hurt. The arnica gel has really helped with the swelling. Over the weekend I asked my bf to take me to GNC which had the arnica gel and the pellets. They help so much with the swelling. I have only been taking my pain meds at night for stiffness and discomfort while sleeping. Thank goodness, those things make you so constipated.
Dr Sampson took my sutures out. I finally asked...lol...He says he took out just a little over 2000cc from my stomach, flanks & outer thighs..lol I guess I didn't have as much fat as I thought I did. He put in 900cc in each cheek. I am very pleased with his work and experience. I am soo glad i went to his office. trusting your life and body to another person is no joke. Still considering getting implants with him later this year.
He told me to come for another follow up in a month.
I took some more pics but they look the same so I'm not posting them. My stomach and waist is still very flat thanks to Dr Sampson and his excellent team and my butt is shaped very nicely. I will post some pics 3-5 weeks post op.
