So being that I live in the mecca of plastic surgery "Beverly Hills" / LA I am having a hard time choosing a Dr. I want to go with Dr Bruno but his booties don't look very big. I am also considering Afifi but she doesnt have alot of pics... I really wanted Dr Younai his butts look fab on his website but he is charging like 16k for a BBL he must be crazy

Is there any other LA girls who have any suggestions ?

So this has been a long time coming and now that it's here I must admit I am excited yet nervous and questioning myself... maybe I should have worked out harder am I taking the easy way out ? am I going against God by altering what he gave me ?? anyone else have any of these concerns ?? not trying to rain on anyones parade but just need some encouragement I don't have anyone in my life who is giving me any feedback either way it's pretty much my decision.,,,,

So my date is almost here seems like the time just flew by I was thinking of cancelling like 100 times ... but I thought about it again today about the frustration of working out consistently and yea I was in better shape but not confident enough to wear form fitting dresses I want to know how that feels also to know how it feels to go lay by the pool in Vegas in a bikini and feel sexy ... So I am doin this for my Ego basically whether that's right or wrong it just is ... I have been conflicted by this feeling for the past month and a half but I feel like I deserve to feel confident and sexy and God helped me make this happen and if the universe didn't want this for me it wouldnt have been made possible

Results are yet to come ... I am praying for the best

So I went and got some things I will need today...

So I went and got some things I will need today everything except food for after so I am going hard trying to gain a few last pounds before surgery and while it's nice not to have to stress about what I am eating I am so not even desiring food now before I would be so excited for sweets and now it's like uck so anyway I am praying I get the heart shaped bubble I desire

Just curios does stretching the booty area after the BBL destroy fat cells I have been stretching on all fours a bit to releive some of the back pain from sleeping on stomach but not wanting to destroy or disconnect any fat cells in the process... just wondering if anyone had any info on this .. I am going to call my DR tomorrow and ask

So as of right now I haven't posted any pics cuz from the side I dont see a difference it may be due to swelling foams etc but I am giving it one week before I make a full assessment I know the results change each day but I was expecting some kind of bubble anyway here is a backshot the side shot is too depressing to post at this point

So although I do notice a big difference I guess I wanted a bigger side profile I know I am still swollen and trying to be patient... anyway here is some pics ... I wont do a rating until I am at least 1 week post op ... Also I have some loose skin on tummy combined with swelling so I am praying the garment will cure that

THANKS

I am 12 days post op right now and have noticed one cheek is bigger and rounder than the other... I have talked to other girls who are experiencing the same thing and have read other girls blog who are having this same complaint this is being said by girls who have gone to various different Dr's so it's not a surgical error ... I am thinking the reason for this is because the body is never exactly the same on each side so that could be why when we are healing one side is just naturally absorbing more of the fat to maintain that uneveness for whatever the reason the body is built this way... point being that I am now starting to think besides trying to sleep evenly on each side and to try to distribute weight and activity evenly on each side there is probably not much that can be done about this...so no point in stressing about it.... anyway out in public and with clothes on I doubt anyone will be able to tell anyway its just a personal preference oh and in the bedroom unless you look like a total freak of nature your man is not gonna care .... so lets live and enjoy these booties ladies and be happy we made it to the other side !!!

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated I dont want one that is too tight and that will smash my new booty I need to save every CC I can also so do those boards really help flatten the tummy ? Is the only way to purchase one online ?

AND DID YOU NOTICE ANY SHRINKAGE AFTER ??? OH YEA AND MY TUMMY IS STILL VERY SWOLLEN

My recovery was going pretty good or so I thought until last week I started wearing my squeem and the next day I was so dizzy I could barely walk... so now I am not wearing it but still verrry dizzy. I am not sick not pregnant I called my doc and he supposed to get back to me but just seems weird I a experiencing this this late in the recovery process has anyone else had this ???

So I am almost 120 days post op and I am working...

So I am almost 120 days post op and I am working out again and eating "clean" trying to lose weight I am the only person I know that gets fatter after lipo and its not like I have been eating crazy I just havent worked out that much in the last 5 months due to preparing my fat for BBL and then perserving it afterward... anyway the results are not as great as I had expected I was hoping at the very least to a flat tummy but as you can see i dont.. I weighed 140 on the morning of surgery Now I weigh 152... I have fat necrosis on one cheek aka hard dead fat massaging and using heating pad hope it goes away... I am emotionally spent on this subject but came back on RS to vent and let people know dont expect to come out looking like a new person just a different version of yourself... I have cellulite in the lipo areas which I didn't have before and I feel overall flabby in clothes I look decent but naked no bueno.. I will keep working out but until then I have to live with this result I guess it could have been worse but I wish it would have been better

ALL IN ALL I DONT FEEL 100 % SATISFIED WITH THIS...

ALL IN ALL I DONT FEEL 100 % SATISFIED WITH THIS PROCEDURE I DUNNNO HOW ONE GETS FATTER AFTER LIPO WITHOUT ANY SIGNIFICANT DIET CHANGES AND I EAT PRETTY HEALTHY OVERALL ANYWAY SALADS, VEGGIES, FRUITS NO SODA LOTS OF WATER ETC ... WTF ???

I would like to know the answer to your question also. I have massaged mine daily and it seems the same. I feel it more now when I sit and I found two smaller ones, lucky me. Removal will have to be the answer but will it leave scars and indentations? I can't seem to find anyone that has had them removed or attempted to get rid of them in any way via excision, lipo, etc. There must be someone. TTYL

You sound like me. I also feel like I gained weight in midsection and have a quarter size hard mass in my right cheek and a smaller one above that one. I am 4 months post and have been massaging it daily but it hasn't changed at all. It hurts a little usually when I first sit and recently my right cheek is tingling in that area. What did your doctor say or do about it? Did you tell him before second surgery? He did a second BBL even though you had the fat necrosis without removing the fat necrosis? Please let me know. I emailed my docs office and waiting to see what is going on or what I can do plus how much it will cost me. I also have dents/dimpling in middle of butt cheeks and rippling on stomach area which is very noticeable in the light. Take care.

Hi I didn't get a 2nd surgery I am trying to get this first one completely healed first my fat necrosis still hasn't gone away and my tummy looks loose which is weird because I have good skin and no kids so I am thinking maybe just keep working out
  • Reply
Oh my fault, I must have read your review wrong. It is weird that you have loose skin, I guess we are the unlucky ones. I hate doing sit ups and my tummy could be a little loose from having a kid but others that have had kids look really tight so I guess it depends on skin elasticity. If it doesn't tighten maybe in the future i'll get a mini tummy tuck because when I sit my skin folds/creases and I hate that which is one of the reasons I had the surgery in the first place. Well, good luck and take care. TTYL

Hey hun! Maybe it's too late to tell you to wear your garmet because you already gained weight. The only thing you could do now is eat healthy and do squats. Your butt looks really nice actually, just work out your tummy and take care of your diet. Most

Sorry hun. Do be patient and do everything you are supposed to do. Wear the garments and the whole 9 yards! Best of luck to you!

So what does Dr. Bruno say about the hard lumps and dizzy spells? Are the lumps visible? I am scheduled for next month and I'm starting to get skeptical about this.
  • Reply
well the dizziness only lasted about 2 weeks on and off the lumps are necrosis he said will go away with time but we shall see I am massaging and doing the heating pad

Hello. I had my surgery 4 going on 5 months ago and I have fat necrosis in both cheeks. My doc says it will go away. She said I can put a heating pad on it and massage it. On my left cheek it caused a dent. Im am going for my round 2 in november with Yily.
  • Reply
It caused me to have a dent on one side as well also one side is bigger and fuller than the other... It was such a debilitating process to heal the first time I dont know if I have the patience for a 2nd round... also my tummy is not flat there is a bubble and it's lumpy

But dont you want to get it fixed?

Hello, I'm having a procedure next month and I can sleep thinking that something bad can happens. I have a 14 year old daughter but on the other hand I want to change my body. ITS crazy I cant sleep,and just to think about the day of the surgery makes me feel so scare. I took this decision and I will stick it to it.

You are looking better and better each time! You look really good, juicy booty and your waist is small! Lol all the freaking out we have been doing...afterall it looks very worth it! :) oh and my flat part looks the same :/ just a bit bigger and now on both sides:/
  • Reply
Thanks I think it's fluffing now the fat seems more settled I know we are obsessed well it's a big investment and it's our bodies so it's justified that we obsess over it ... That flat thing is not the biz I wonder why I guess its that natural chemistry thing or maybe the lack of exercise in the past few months either way we both are looking juicier so that's definitely worth it !!!
