Serious About Taking the BBL Plunge 2014 - Los Angeles, CA
I've been lurking on this site on and off for a...
i've read that dr. hughes is extremely personable so honestly, i expected more from our consultation. he was pretty matter of fact and he did not look me in the eye during our entire talk. i don't think he's shifty at all, don't get me wrong. i just didn't get warm fuzzies. i also felt like i was being rushed. we probably spoke for about 10-15 minutes. i will say that he comes across confident in his abilities, not arrogant, and i liked that very much. i've done a lot of research on here and think he may be the one despite not being bowled over. however, with an endeavor of this magnitude, i should perform due diligence and see at least 2 more doctors (dass being one of them). i'll probably call his office tomorrow.
after dealing with the tummy tuck with drains (the mastoplexy was a breeze, no pain there), i think the bbl will be easier for me to deal with, or at least comparable in discomfort. finding the time to recover will be a bit difficult as i travel for work and i'm a single mom, but again, after the tt, i know i can manage. i also don't want anyone to know i'm doing this, so that will be a factor as well. i guess the biggest factor in not meeting the doctors back to back and scheduling right away is the money. i have the cash to do this or i can pay off the loan i took out to do the previous sx. since i borrowed the money from myself, the monthly payments i make are transparent to me and i could just continue with the payments as they are, even possibly pay it off in full at the end of the year. if i do this i can pay in cash for the bbl. i know i want to do it, but i also love to travel and collect old things so i am a bit torn on spending the money on something like this again. i don't regret my sx, and i'm pretty sure i won't regret the bbl, but i'm thinking is the cost worth it? would i be happy spending it elsewhere? is it better spent elsewhere? probably not ;)
i've been collecting a few wish pics and after looking at photos i'm wondering if i'm getting butt greed already! i don't want a badonk. i don't want crazy flared hips. i'm bigger than i'd lke to be, i'm best at a size 4-6, so i want to slim down before surgery. dr. hughes said that would not be an issue. i also weigh a lot for my size. i'm 5'2" and 160 but am a straight up size 8. i've gained 8 lbs in the past year and would like to lose that plus some before my surgery. i have loads of vintage clothing i'd like to be able to wear again and "hells yeah hips" do not apply! wasp waist does though, which is probably what i'm most after. no more back fat with tiny waist and a "boop" butt. at least that's what i'm saying now ;) when i first started looking at butts i was very critical. seeing underwear that disappeared between butt cheeks did not appeal to me but now... ultimately, i'm sure logic will out and i will opt for a conservative backside (famous last words), i've attached a before photo (but after tt and boob lift). the lack of bootay is so evident. sorry for the poor tattoo coverup. here starts the journey!
