hey ladys!!!! i been doing some of research on some doctors here!!!! and i came up with this website, which i can honestly say is really helpful:) i really had my mine set to go to mexico and have it done because my cousins had a BBL over there. But with the airplane ticket, medicines,garments it was going to ended up being almost he same price that im looking for here.....so i still have time to research and hopefully i find the right doctor here with you guys help:)... im looking to do the procedure by december 2013...i seen good reviews from dr.kenneth in culver city and dr.afifi in santa ana...any other ones you guys recomend? thank you

Booked my flight on July ....Mexico(sinaloa)... is...

Booked my flight on July ....Mexico(sinaloa)... is just a consultation with Dr. Rafaela in culiacan.. depends the price and how the consultation goes ill make My decision if Ill do it over there or if I keep looking for a doctor here

is 1000ccs to big?

im debathing how many ccs i should get!!!! it seems like 1000 cc is perfect!!! but i dont want it to look to huge on my petite body....i seen girls that had 1000cc and on some of them look good and some look huge ugh!!!!

skinny legs

all this girls i see have nice thick legs and there new but looks nice !!!! but what about for someone like me that has skinny legs but want at least 1000ccs, i wonder if is going to look weird,,,

finally went for my consultation

went to sinaloa to see dr rafaela !!! she look at me and quoted me 4,000.... she gives me really hight hopes on my outcome. she also said that 1000 was to much for me beacuse of my height :(

move my date

so i called the office yesterday to set my appointment for the first week of january!!!! but everything was booked until january 23, so that would be my my earliest date... aracely said if somebody cancels she would let me now:) hopefully somebody does. she said i need to go and do my blood work 15 days before... looking for a clinic that can do it cause i dont have insurance

Pics

Wow 11 more days :)

Nothing much just updating my status !!!! Went to the mall yesterday and bought a couple if clothes since my date is getting closer, somelong shirts, long skirts and dresses sweats.... I already send my blood results she said everything is ok good to hear that ... She said I do t have to take no vitamins but I do have to wash my body with isodine the night before to disenfect your body is a Mexican soup... I try to but here but they don't sell it here only in Mexico..... I still have to buy a cuiolr of things but I guess I can wait until the weekend !!!! Oh did I mention that my cousin is going with me :) that's a big yay for me cause I think it saves me a little bit of money since we can go 50/50 in gas , food etc

One more week:)

A month

So I'm a month post op . Still swollen from my back and abdomen and private area. I still can't feel my stomach and lower back wondering when I'm going to star getting my sensation back.. Starting to walk better and doing things this recovery is taking longer then I thought ..... But I'll guess I'll keep waiting :)

Pics 7 weeks :)

When do you star feeling your stomach?

Hi ladies in 7 weeks post op and my lower back upper back and stomach still numb and a little swollen I wonder how long foes it take to sensation come back ? I was also told that some times your sensation won't come back and you won't feel nothing if they pinch you ? Is this true?

You have really great results. Can you tell me why you didn't go with an L.A. doctor? I am looking at doc here now so I am curious.

Mmm it was mostly the price here I was looking into 7,500 and in Mexico it was 5000 so is a big difference besides I already had family that had it done over there si that made my decision easier :)
