I am a very petite African American female mother...
Dr Dass is amazing. I had my consultation in January and my procedure on Monday. I'm 5 days in but immediately I saw the body I believe I'm going to have and am super excited. I know there is a lot of swelling but I know that he has given me the body I've always wanted. Beyonce and J-lo look out. Lol.
Thanks Dr Dass and your amazing team. You are the best.

8 days post op
Here are my pics taken this morning 8 days after surgery. A lot of my swelling is going down however I had a horrible night last night because I tried to sleep on my stomach due large hemorrhoids from sitting in the lounge chair that I cut the butt out of. Sorry if that's TMI, but I think you should know this in case you planned on doing the same.
Other than that, I think I feel ok considering and at this point am glad that I chose not to do the TT with this procedure. I wore the same panties and bra this morning so you can see the difference in my body shape now. Do to forget though, there is still swelling and bruising.

Plus I'm so tired of sleeping on my stomach. Can't wait for things to be back to normal.

4 weeks post op BBL, Fat Transfer
I'm exactly 4 weeks today. Yay!!!! I made it. It was not easy. So my abds are still lumpy and sore. Much of the swelling has subsided. My left butt cheek for whatever reason has a small dent about an inch and a half linear. Otherwise, I feel great and am finally able to sit comfortably and more importantly sleeeep. Here are my new photos in a dress getting ready to go out to lunch. I still say Dr Dass is the best. Thanks Dr Dass. My waist is measuring 26 my hips are at 40. Overall, I'm extremely happy.
7 weeks postoperative
Well here is my 7 week update with pics. My measurements are waist 28 and hips 39 1/2. I am still a bit swollen and lumpy in my abdominal area. My butt has fluffed as much as it's going to I guess. I see my doctor for my final visit tomorrow. If there are any changes I will update again. Otherwise I am very pleased with my results and the great job that Dr Dass did. He's the very best.

It's been about a month since I last updated. My abdomen is getting smaller and smaller everyday. For some reason I stay hungry all of the time but can only eat small portions. Most of the swelling is gone from my abs. As a matter of fact a lot has gone away since my last update however those areas, mostly on my sides, are still tender and have some bruising remaining where the swelling was. I'm not sure if that is normal to still have bruising. I will have to talk with Dr Dass. Overall, I feel great. My abs measure 28 and my hips are 38 1/2. Here are pics from today.
Dr Dennis Dass is the most amazing person that I've ever gone to. He is very professional, soft spoken, listens intently to everything you have to say and takes great pride in his work so you know you are in excellent hands. He called the night of my surgery and checked on me and have me his personal cell phone in case I had questions or concerns. Super amazing guy. I highly recommend him for this and other procedures. He's the best at what he does.
