Hello. I am 31 years old and 3 children. I have been considering a bbl and arm lipo for about 2 years. I had breast reduction in 2011. I went from a 38DDD to a 38 C. I am 5'6 and 190. I had a consultation with Dr. Yager but, his bbl did not convinced me. I found Dr. Schulman here on RS. I had my consultation yesterday 4/6/13. Him and his staff made me feel so comfortable and he answered all my questions. My surgery is scheduled for 5/6/13, yayyyy. My dream of having the butt of my dreams is coming true. My only concern is the recovery process. I am wondering how am I going to feel right after I wake up from my surgery. For some reason, I can't download my pics.

Hello BBL sisters...My day is almost here. Less than 2 weeks to go. I finally got my meets and still nit nervous at all. All I do is wonder how I'm going to look. I stopped shopping for clothes in case I size change.... I hope lol. I have faith that Dr. S is going to meet my expectations. I am wondering if I should get another garmet. This so surreal

My sisters will be taking turns caring for me. They still think I dont need this surgery but, continue to be very supportive. That's all I. I'm not sure about what other meds to buy besides the one the prescriptions my doc gave. I am so excitedBob

I also got Arnica gel and tablets, female urinal and will be getting a boppy pillow next week. I'm trying to keep a positve mind through thia journey. This surgery dir sure will change my life.

I first want to say thank you for all the best wishes and prayers sooooooo, that being said, I made to the other side BBL sisters. I got to the facility at 10:05am. 5 minutes late, downtown traffic. The team was already waiting for me and made me feel si special. I was taken to another room where I met my Nurse and Anesthesiologist (sweet ppl). The both asked me a few questions about previous surgeries and meds that I'm taking. The surgical team was already waiting for me. I changed into the gown, took pregnancy test and Dr. S took pics. He pointed out that one of my butt cheeck was a little bigger than the other.I think this was a first for him..lol. He told me that he was going to try to even it out. Dr. S. Made me feel calm and confident. After they finished prepping me, I was taking to the OR. When I woke up, my butt fell a little sore. The lipo area do not hurt. They just feel tender ti the touch annd numb. My butt feels numb too but, I LOVE IT. I GOT A BEAUTYFUL, ROUND BOOTY. I know I'm swollen but , I love what I see. Dr. S did his thing. Got 1050 in one butt cheek and 1250 in the other to even them out. I cried a little when I first saw my self. I am one sexy mama.

First night was a turture. I sleep probably 1 hour at a time ; (. I was getting up to use the bathroom a lot. I'm very sore and swollen. Would I do this again, yes a thousand times. ;)????? my results. This is soooooo worth it.

I can't believe it's been 4 weeks since my surgery. I'm feeling better and better eveyday. I only feel tightness in my back. My massage it as often as I can and it helps a lot. I decided to continue wearing my stage 1 garmet most of the time. Feels more comfortable to Me.
I am loving my results more and more. I feel Fabulous bbl sister. When I first came out of surgery, I did not want to get use to the attention from men and women..lol.

5 weeks already past since my surgery. Feeling 90 percent back to normal. The only thing I ccan't stand us the swelling on my back. It has gotten better, is does not feel as tight as before. It's just annoying. I'm now able to go 12 hours w/o the garmet. I am planning on using it for as long as I can. I think it helps keeps the swelling down. I am scheduled to see Dr. S on the 25th for my second post op f/u. I am alternating between my first and second (stage 2) garmet.

It's been a while, I know. I had my surgery exactly 4 months ago today. I just needed some time away to focus on my recovery. I am 95% back to normal. I'm no longer swollen but , my back, were I had the lipo is still healing. I love how I look in my clothes. I feel all eyes on me when i walk down the street...lol. At this point , my butt shouldn't lose any volume. Honestly, I haven't lost much volume since about week 3. I love love trying clothes on. Specially dresses and skirts. I went away on vacation in July and August to my country. My familyamd whole town noticed I was looking very bootylicious....lol.

Hello bbl sistera. It's been a long time. But, I'm back to give you an update. I'm very, very satisfied with my results. I didn't lose a lot of volume. I look so good in anything I wear. Dr. Schulman is the best.

Omg. You look amazing. Dr. Shulman is on the money. Did you do your stomach. He got your waist smaller. I decided to just do the back. I was told the healing is better. I hope you continue to heal fabulously.

Thank you for sharing your story. I also had a consultation w/Schulman and if it weren't for you and his other patients candid shots I wouldn't believe he was the truth. Still have due diligence to do and go through a few more consults. If there was anyone else in NYC that you believe is worth speaking to, please do share. Congrats on your beautiful transformation.

Did you take vitamins before and after surgery? And when did you start sitting with your boppy and for how long at a time? If you drive, when did you start? Thanks:)

Hey Dede, considering Dr. S doesn't use drains, should I but the disposable bed liners? If so, the 10 or 20 pack?
