I am 5'2 and 140lbs I am hispanic and do not have a butt like most hispanic girls I was so excited to hear about this procedure hopefully I can get the booty I've always dreamed of. If anybody has any advice for me I am all ears. My ps said he is gonna try and get as much fat out of me as possible but for sure 400cc I was hoping for more like 600cc. I've read on here girls smaller then me have gotten 600-800cc so I really hope I can get that much thank you to everyone for all your post it has really help me decide this is what i want to do

How much do you weight now? I gained a few pounds before surgery I've read that a lot of girls do that. Just becareful and don't do it to early. If you gonna gain do it like a month before surgery. I also read that the new fat has a better chance for survivor. If I would you. I don't know if I would get anything less that 500. Remember that 35% or more will not survive. I'll email you that information tomorrow. Check out my Dr.s sute bellaformaclinic.com

I havent completly decided yet dr perez here in kc he went to same school as compos he said 400 for sure and is goung to try for more or compos I have not heard anything back from him yet so im just waiting and so nervous about the possible travel
  • Reply
Yeah the whole traveling thing is nervewrecking and tedious to plan but hearing so many successful trips and surgeries makes me feel alot better about it.
I think the drs are telling you so low because you dnt appear to have a lot of fat. Im acually jealous of your stomach!! But yeah, you might have to gain a little bit which is better than having to lose it. Whos your dr?

Im starting to get discourged. My ps and many others have told me 300-400cc per cheeck is what Im looking at. My ps said he will try for as much as possible but what if all he can get is 400cc is that even worth it? Im afraid Im going to be very disappointed. I even thought about going to Compos but even he said maybe 500 and I dont think the possible extra 100cc is worth the travel. I dont get it I know I have fat and I know alot of ladies on here are smaller then me and are getting 600-800cc at least. I guess I will see come sugery day :-( Hopefully I will get more then the predicted 400cc per cheeck

@enjoyself pls keep me posted. I believe my dr will be able to get more he said hes gonna get as much as my body will give Im hoping for at least 500cc. Im not that small so I think I will be ok Im having my procedure in june so I still have time to add my arms to the lipo areas to get the extra cc's
  • Reply
I'm also on the small side. I'm 5'3 &1/2" & I gained extra 15 pounds by eating a lot. My current weight now is 132 pounds & most of the newly gained fat went into my thighs, waistline & sides, lol. I put on this extra 15 pounds so my doctor, Dr. Salama has enough fat to pull from me. He usually do 600 - 1000 cc's. When I emailed him my photos & my photo of "wish butt", he said he will try for 700 -800 cc. for me. He said I should gain weight & that he will add my inner thighs to lipo, IF I don't have enough required fat. My surgery is this Nov.28 & I will keep you posted. Anyway, congrats & I wish you a speedy recovery!!!

Thanks for being so helpful I dont think I will do fillers but im thinking he can get at least 500 and I still need to ask about adding my arms im gonna try and stay positive

That is so cool that you are in KS what Dr are you going with I was gonna get mine done here but my dr was only talking about putting 400cc per cheek and I know I will need more then that so Im going to go to Dr Compos. What doc are you going to and how much will it be if you dont mind me asking. Make sure you keep in touch your procedre will be before mine so I want to know all about it
  • Reply
Hey! I. Live in Kansas too, well I go to KU! I am having a BA/BL with fat trasnfer to the butt in May! I know a lot but I want it all to be over with! I hope my doctor can do at least 600cc in each cheek. I definitely will have enough fat I think, if not I want him to take some from my thighs! I'm excited! I already have a butt but I want it to be bigger since my thighs are kinda big so it makes my butt not look at big, if that makes sense! I'm excited for you! We are getting surgery around the same time and basically in the same area so I will be sure to follow your journey! Good luck grly!
  • Reply
The dr here said 400 for sure but will put more if he gets more I called n spoke to his nurse n she said he will try for as much as possible said he even lipoed above a chicks kneee caps on one case to get the extra fat or if I go with compos he said 500 to 600 and u would have to fly it will be a 3hr flight and I will have to sit the way you showed in your pics the weight gain dr here said I can if I want but that we do not increase the number of fat cells we have only the size of the fat cells....decisions decions

Ive come along way since I started this process in October. I've gone back n forth so many times on what Dr to go with because I did not what to travel but after hearing so many sucess stories and seeing amazing results and with the help of some amazing ladies (BaddBrown) I've gotten over my fear to travel and Im going with Dr Compos and now I am all set! I've paid my deposit to Dr Compos. Ive purchased my plane ticket and I just made my deposit to Club Med today now all I need is for June to hurry up and get here

That would be nice. I'm trying to stay as long as possible in case there's any complications. I live in Bermuda and if something were to go wrong during the recovery stage I wouldn't know who to turn to here and it would be a hassle to return to Mexico.

Thx kickassgrl that was one if the reasons I chose dr compos although he says he can do between 500 -700 cc per cheek it is filtered and yes it's about a 6hr surgery when I asked how long so I'm really hoping for the 700 and maybe even more
  • Reply
I just want to point out that a lot of these comments regarding how many "cc's" people are getting is subjective. Some of these ladies had their fat "unfiltered" or not processed. Meaning pretty much anything sucked out could be reinjected. My doc will be filtering and he said maybe 300cc each side (I'm 5'7 and 140lbs-the last 10 I'm holding just for this procedure). But I am optimistic. If you look at some of the ladies that only got that much, They are still happy and have more tush than they started with. Check with your doc and see if they filter the fat and only inject the finished project vs another doc who tells you he can put in twice as much. It could end up being the same thing in the end-considering the unfiltered products might just be absorbed. Just food for thought. Another thing is the doc says the filtering process takes a couple hours, meaning those who were done in 3 hours received the unprocessed. He said to do my back, love handles, inner and outer thighs, process and inject would take around 6 hours (due to the filter process).

Ok so it just occured to me I have 3 1/2 months before it is my time to shine. This has been a long process and I still have time to go. Ive paid beauty care recovery house. I have my plane ticket. Im going to get my pass port next week and will be paying my remaing balance to Dr Compos come April. Total I will be spending about 5,500.00 for everything (procedure, recovery house, labs etc.) not bad but the one thing I gained out of this entire process that can not be bought is the meeting of some amazing ladies I have made some true friends throughout this process and I can not wait to be at the recovery house with these ladies. We are gonna kick it pain and all!

Heyyyy Miss Lady! Soooo I found a website that sell epifoam (their brand is lipofoam) a little cheaper. The cost is $7.50 per 8x11 sheet which is big enough of the abdomen and back area.....think about it....epifoam usually cost about $30 for 3 but from the website I just found you will get 4 for $30 it's not much of a difference but every bit helps....the site is http://www.contourmd.com/Lipo_Foam_8x11in_Individual_Sheets_p/lip-01.htm and they sell them individually unlike the epifoam brand in which you have to purchase 3 per order......I am looking for some that are even cheaper so if I find any I'll post it here. Hope this helps.............

Ok so I have exactly 53 days left until I am on my way to TJ for Dr Campos to work his magic on me. I have everything I need thanks to Ready4ABBL love ya girl. I ordered my epifoam and that's the last thing on my list. Ive made my apt with my Pcp for labs and to discuss aftercare and that's it everything is done. I must say I never thought this experience would put me in contact with amazing ladies so that has been a wonderful extra to this entire process. I'm already to go next time I update I will be on my way to TJ. Thanks to all you ladies who have given me advice and answered my many questions. Ready4ABBL thank you for listening to me the worry wort all the time and for being such a good friend

Ok I was not going to update until it was my time to leave but i cant help but to. I dont want to discuss this with my hubby because I DO NOT want to worry him. I have exactly 30 days and I thought I would be super excited but as my time draws near im getting more and more nervous. All I can think about is every negative thing that can possible happen. I have 3 babies I have to come home to and all I ask myself lately is "IS THIS REALLY WORTH IT?" Im so scared of all the bad things that can happen from getting burned to needing a blood transfusion and all sorts of other things including not getting the results I want. I sure hope this is just a normal part of the process because I can't even get excited anymore and its starting to get depressing :-(. Im adding my current pictures at 150lbs Im not gaining anymore weight so these will be my official befores

Guuuurl I been feeling the same way I will be out there with you on June 19 and like i said ditto here but WE have to stay possivite the lord is by our side and we are ganna look fabulous. =)
  • Reply
Newbootypls I think we are all going thru similar thoughts but we jus have to be positive and have faith in the lord, I recommend you to focus in the recovery more than the surgery to help with your surgery anxiety that is absolutely normal besides like the other bbl sister said you must trust in your surgeons hands ANC if u are not sure call the board of plastic surgeons in your state to find out if your doctor had any bad record. It is do funny cause am more worried about after pains and recovery to heal right but again this is why doctor monitor u closely your pressure temp and all vital sings to make sure you are safe 99% of doctors think sbout is safety.

Thanks Perfect theres just been so many negative experiences going on that now Im worried but I know all I can do at this point is have faith and pray that the Lord will keep me safe

I had an all out melt down I cried to my hubby all night because I hate the fact that Im leaving my children for 8 long days. I feel like such a bad mother but cant turn back now. From here on out I am going to try and stay as positive as possible. I know God is with me and he will get me through whatever comes my way. My consult with Dr Campos is today and surgery first thing in the morning. Im getting lipo and BBL and a tt if he thinks I need one.

Thank you ladies for the prayers I had surgery yesterday I ended up needing an extended tt was not happy about it but as of now I have to say campos did his thing my waist is really tiny and I know it will get smaller because being one day post op I'm still very swollen I believe I got 1064cc to each cheeck but not for sure because I was still out of it when the nuse told me and I lost the post it note she wrote it on but I will ask campos when I see him. As for Beauty care I was told there was a pipe burst so they put a friend and myself in a hotel I will post more about this once I get home I don't wanna jump the gun and say its been bad a good yet. Now my question to the ladies who have had a tt and bbl when the heck do you feel some what normal and in not so bad I feel like I dying here I will post pics when I get home because I'm unable to post from my iPad

I just wanted to thank everyone for the prayers and well wishes this recovery is hard especially being in a hotel but I have to say beauty care us doing a very good job caring for us giving the circumstances. I really feel they have our best interest at heart even letting us use there personal phones when the hotels Internet is down. I will say if you can come to mex with someone pls do I came with a friend and thank god I did I can't imagine being down here by myself with all that has gone down with beauty care closing down even when you plan well shit happens that you can't control. I will post more when I get home and I promise to post pics soon but I will say as I recover more I'm happier and happier with my results i feel I got the hour glass figure I was wanting and I finally have a butt woo hoo!

Im finally home from the hospital! I wanna thank all the ladies that took time out to send me well wishes and your prayers it was really appreciated. I haven't even attempted to look at my butt I'm thinking itd probably all gone since being in the hospital I had no choice but to sit on it but at this point all I care about is being healthy I still have to take a 14 day dose of antibiotics but its oral meds and I get to be home with my family. Had this not have happened I would be typing a different review saying it was 100% worth it but being on the other end I have to say it was not worth it nothing it worth your health no matter how good your results are

Im doing alot better Im almost 3 weeks post op and although Ive been sitting on my butt since day 11 due to my hospital stay Im still happy with what butt I have left with. I dont know maybe its because I really dont care about my results as long as I have my health. But heres my almost 3week post op pics Im still swollen and was without a garmet the 6 days I was in the hospital

Sorry chica but finish what u started when u can. Wear your garment to help with swelling and can u get massages to elimate extra fluid? I am sure will feel a lot better in a few weeks. Manage the pain with the pain meds u have and reduce sodium intake as well.

I pray that I stay healthy so that I can start enjoying my results I will take some better pictures within the next couple of weeks. Compared to what I looked like before my body looks so much better I have curves and I actually have a butt Its not a huge butt but its way better then the flat square butt I had before

Did your health insurance cover most of your stay in the hospital or did you have to pay it all out of packet. That's one thing that worrys me. If some thing goes wrong. I'll have to pay even more and hospital r not cheap. Thought about going to campos but mexico is so scary. With all the crime.

Booty greed is setting in and Ive been thinking about a rd 2 just not 100% sure because of course I do not want to get another infection. Would I reccomend this to others YES. I did not realize how flat I was before this and Im so glad I did this even though my recovery was not 100% complication free

Ok so Ive been going back n forth on wether or not to do a rd 2 and I have decided Im going with Dr Salama. I put my deposit down and Im scheduled for July 15, 2013 I feel like a newbie all over again just cause I dont know How Dr Salama runs things so if any of you Salama vets have advice Im all ears. Ive decide on rd 2 just cuz I want a lil more prejection and from the back view my butt sometimes looks flat. I need the back to be fuller. I dont wanna go through all the stuff that comes with going out of the country any Salama's booty's always look good so thats why I chose him to finish me up

Mine was huge after surgery and I was not feeling that either! lol Its still big though but I feel it gonna look good once it softens and fluffs out. I gotta little donkey booty it us more bubble which is cute, my man loves! oh yes and the curves!!! Dr Salama hooked that up my waist is so tiny, Im in love!

I really hope it goes down because right now it's huge
it will because your swollen, but it will still be a nice size for your body. Dr.Salama is really good at making eveyone body fit the frame and not fake looking. you will love it. We still need to reach that 3 to 4 month mark to really see the outcome.

depression kicking in

today is day 4 and not a good day Im freaking out about getting an infection just because i had one rd1 not because of anything else one butt cheek is a little bit more sore then the other so thats not helping the situation and my butt is huge I'm praying for this thing to go down because right now i feel like a damn cartoon I'm not a happy camper about that either I did have my 1st massage yesterday and yeah that was the most painful experience ever I almost cried heres are some pics from day 3

We all go through crazy thoughts, I was a ballon after a week I wore baggy clothes so I looked fat.., then I thought it was to small... Trust us you look so itty bitty with a cute but and that is your day 3 pic you will fluff but it will only look better.. It's hard to say don't wreck your brain, cause you'll still feel that way.. But u look great

Well I'm home as of Monday and just removed my front drain today so I'm really excited about that so far recovery has been good since I've been home I do have episodes of weakness and feel shaky so I'm hoping that passes I'm liking my results more and more especially since my booty is starting to drop and the shelf is going away I'm very excited about how things are looking but don't wanna get ahead of myself so just taking it one day at a time

No problem thank you for the well wishes
If you could pick on doctor (campos or salama) who would you have originally gone with? I ask bc you went to the 2 doctors that I a zeroing on. I love campos' sculpting skills (heart shaped butts) but salama gives more bubble. I want both of what they offer, but there is no way I can have this surgery twice. My husband already isn't fully committed to me getting this procedure:( we have 2 kids and he thinks of all the 'worst case seneros'. But if I could, I would do exactly what you did bc I think you did the right thing! You look amazing! I am really happy for you:)

omg u look very nice! I envy that booty! heheh great job! what lipo technique Salama used? do u know how many litres he sucked out?
  • Reply
Thank you I don't know how much he got out but I got 1100cc's
Great results! How has this healing process been so far? Easier bc you know what to expect? :) kinda like child birth.... Did you buy new garments or did you use your old ones? And does dr. Salama prefer you to wear the butt in or butt out garments any time in the recovery? I always wondered about that. You look amazing, still!
