Getting my BBL WITH DR.CORTES IN HOUSTON IN 2 dayssss!

Hi I'm 24 years old with no kids and don't plan on having kids until I'm 30 years old. I've always been on the heavy side but I hold my weight well. I just want to for once be able to put on a swim suit and feel completely comfortable. Which I don't now. I've had the option of trying to loose weight before my procedure , but it's really hard for me to loose weight and keep it off.i love to eat. Im having a tummy tuck , lipo of my sides and my arm area ... Is this a good option for me ... At 208 pounds ?

So today , I've started my real diet : I've darted by drinkin the lean milkshake for a meal replacement . I was taking the adipex pills but I stopped because I learnt that they can put hole in your heart. So I need Lists of healthy meals . I'm trying to do the salad thing but I really don't care for salads. Does anyone have any other options on fatburners or other healthy ways to loose weight , besides hydroxycut ?

congrats on your decision! You will look lovely afterwards but as far as the diet, try eating lots of fruits and vegetables, walking helps a lot if you don't have a gym membership. I am presently dieting for my upcoming surgery in april, i have been eating fruit and salads ( i see that you don't like salad) but eat sweet stuff moderately just remember to treat yourself once a week!

Definately eat lots of protien & salads & also soup! You can make any kind of soup by just sauteing garlic in olive oil & adding veggie of your choice - broccoli, cauliflour, celery, anything, then add chicken stock, cook it for a while, puree & there you go! You can even freeze it. Very healthy & easy & delicious! I also love to eat & it is my biggest challenge - keeping my post tt figure! I am almost 1 year post op & no regrets at all. You will love your new figure - but, yes, you do have to maintain. I gained quite a bit in the holiday season & was starting to look like my before photo! Eeek!! I am back on track now - can't imagine going through all that recovery & $ to look like my before photo! Good luck & keep us posted on your recovery.

I'm doing pretty good today , I've been eating healthy . Good dinner and I've decided to take a couple more of the adepex pills , only 4 more though . They cause serious weight loss. But other than that I'm doing fine , a little nervous and have a month to go !! I'm so excited ! I think once I get it done I'll be more motivated to work out ! I just hate that scarring ! So does the silicon scarring work ?

Hey there! You are 24 years old so you will probably bounce back quicker than I have! Lol. I will be 40 in July and while the procedure isn't horrible it is major surgery. I am 10 days post op and still need main meds, we are all different, I keep rearing about people being off meds in 5 and 6 days and I have just had to accept that that's not my story. I discussed with my PS and he said take the meds! Don't be in pain and dont compare yourself to others! You have youth on your side, but please keep your safety and comfort in mind! Can't wait to see your results! You are going to love it!

OOOHHH London1108. That's going to be cutting it close. for the memorial weekend. It kinda depends on how well your body heals. Don't try to do to much. get as much rest as you possibly can. I think you will do fine. But don't push it.

You will do fine and will look fantastic! The agony is waiting and then once you are done and see that flat tummy just focus on recovering and continued healthy eating. Swell hell ain't no joke but it will eventually subside and even swollen you will look great! Keep your excitement! A good attitude is very important in this journey!

Like it hurts si bad when I get out the bed or when I have to walk berg far distances. Other then that I'm okay. My doctor constantly checks on me. Ive had doctors appointments every week since my surgery. I guess. I'm only post op 11 days so I should be hurting .... idk

hi my real self family , im 16 days post op and i hace good news and bad news . So i was checking out my stomach the other day and i said this swelling is not going down so this must be fluid . Low and behold I went to the doctor today and thats exactly what it was . I feel better that he got rid of some of it , but i go back tomorrow to have more of it drained out. I feel so much better , but this headache is killing me . I swear if its not one thing its another. Just let me know if anyone had to go through something simlar... thanks

It's hard waiting for the swelling to settle but trust me it gets so much better! I'm approaching 2 months and I can't believe how flat I am! You will be so happy! You look great already and it only gets better!

Hello everyone so today is my 3 week post op , and boy I tell you I feel like giving up . My head keeps hurting , I had this fluid running down my leg , My Ps had to make a opening in my front incision to keep the fluid coming out so that I wont keep bloating . So somehow , on my right side where I had a blister from my garment being to tight , it has created a small hole so that the fluid can come out , so now that is really looking gross . I love love love m results , I just wish I would stop leaking and opening up all over the place. I called my ps last night and he told me , thats what we wanted was the fluid to be able to come out my body and dont worry about how it looks because he could fix anything . I absolutly love dr fee , because the last pask week i have seen him everyday . and im gonna be the first one to see him when this weekend is over , im trying to see if anyone else went through this same thing or why do i keep having headaches ! someone HELP plz.

@sexysoulsister thanks hun , I'm going to try not to worry. @sue1963 I'll definitely have to tryout the massage ... When I'm at work I'm sitting down I'm never standing up not even to sweep up the hair off the floor someone helps me . I think the headaches come from dehydration with the fluid that is coming out of my body. But I'm okay not the fluid drips are kinda going away , I just keep drinking water and staying padded up. I'm not gonna look to much into it because then I will get worried. So hopefully when I go to the doctor tomorrow I have good news. Or something

I hope your Drs .appt tomorrow goes well! God Bless
Hi London, your headaches may be due to you working. Your are standing cutting hair for 4-5 hours at a time and having to use your arm and shoulders. If you core isn't up to 100% your arms and shoulders are over compensating for this and the result may be your carrying to much tightness and stress in them. Which goes up your neck straight to your head. I suggest deep breathing in a calm environment and pulling them back and down and holding that position as long as you can to try and release pent up stress. You could try You and a Indian head, neck and shoulder massage. It may do the trick. Also you may want to try acupuncture which I am a HUGE fan of! I know this things work because I have suffered chronic pain from all kinds of aliments and change of posture, massage and acupuncture took care of 90% of it were Drs and specialist failed me! Give it a try!
