1 year & 3 months post op new pictures Manhattan new york

I am start by saying how happy i am that i finally...

i am start by saying how happy i am that i finally scheduled my surgery.i have seen numerous doctor including one who just traumatized me after his consult i wanted to stay home and never ever go out again. i found my doctor thanks to this website. he is awesome to say the least he made me feel comfortable i dont even let my husband see my stomach and this gentle i had just meet less than 5 minutes ago had his hands all over it. any advice you ladies can give me would really appreciate it since i dont know what i need to over come this surgery. also if any one can let me what things did they use after surgery for comfort pain and swelling.. is this anything like a c section? lol.

i am 23 years old weight 235 have two children my daughter a year and eight months, my son is nine months old. both my babies were ten pounders so my stomach stretched out ridiculously it looks terrible. i am just embarrassed to go out in clothe i look great i manage to look thinner in clothing somehow. but i just dont feel comfortable. sometimes i wonder if im being selfish because having these two lil babies my husband thinks we should use the money and put a down payment on a new car but we dont need a new car ours runs perfect and we just recently invested $2000 to get things fix before they brake and the car its in excellent condition. so i had worried about being selfish but i need this for me i am young and i deserve my life back. well i put in the deposit today so there will be no going back i cant wait to see a flat tummy.

Hey tummy tuckers i am nearly a month away and...

hey tummy tuckers i am nearly a month away and cant wait to get the surgery over and done with. every day i wake up thinking wow just about left with this ugly stomach.. i have a schedule appoinment for my blood work on monday so i started drinking my iron pills so that my blood work comes back good since i been anemic all my life. i do not want a blood transfusion so i have to drink these. i started putting my list together i decide to buy ramping bandage or what ever you call it i will start bandaging my chin and arms in sort of like a gurdle type thing i made so that i can be well proportionated. well intill next time anything special i should besides the nor.

So today i spoke to pam today and my appoinment is...

so today i spoke to pam today and my appoinment is oct 08 and i though it was this monday. one thing i didnt know is that i had to pay for the lab work out of pocket. i emailed pam and ask her if i can get my doctor to the testing because i have medical coverage and they do not charge me for any lab work. i am still waiting on her reply. i will keep you posted on the answer i really hope i can. i dont want waste money on something i can get for free.

Well tomorrow i am going to my PS to get my blood...

well tomorrow i am going to my PS to get my blood work done so that i can take it to dr. tehrani on oct 08. i am a little scare to get this blood work done because i have been anemic before and dont want that show up on the blood work report. the surgeon didnt tell me to loose any weight but i want to loose 20 pounds before surgery which means i have about a month to loose that weight. i started on the 22nd of sept and so far i lost 3 pounds in two days and im not starving myself. i just hope i can stay focus. so i will keep you ladies posted on my blood work results. i have not purchase anything yet because i am waiting to get my blood work done so that i can make sure my anemia is under control.

I am having seconds thoughts about having this...

i am having seconds thoughts about having this surgery i dont know what to do maybe its that im feeling extremely anxious i really dont know whats going on i always wanted to look fabolous but know that i have the opportunity i dont want to do. my husband is also talking tooooo much i guess is his fault that im second guessing the sx. he keeps telling me that i shouldnt do this because of my two children but he dosent understand that i am not happy. i need to be happy i deserve to be happy just like my children and him. what can i do so he can understand what going through. i honestly need support all i have is mom by my side. he has treatend me that he will not help me once my mom returns to work. my mom has one week vacation my husband does not want to any of his vacations days. what should i do should i cancel my sx? im so depress. help

So today i went to my primary physician to get my...

so today i went to my primary physician to get my results from my blood work, ekg, and chest rays, but the blood work was ready and the ekg. my doctor forgot to give me a copy of my ekg but she gave me my blood work. in my blood work something came up abnormal in the liver section. so my doctor requested i retake the test and return for the results. now my plastic surgeon ask me for medical clearance just to be on safe side and i totally understand i do not want to jeopardize my life so therefore i will be going back on thursday just to see what these results and if all is well to obtain that medical clearance. i cant wait. my plastic surgeon is awesome he puts my mind at ease, he explained every single thing that will happen during and after surgery. his staff are all so nice and sweet. they treated me with respect and they went above and for me. my appoinment was for 2:45 and i arrived at 12:00 since i didnt know how it will take me to get there. luckly they managed to squeeze me and have me seen as soon the doctor finish his last surgery. i got my instruction and antiseptic to clean my stomach for 3 days prior to surgery i also received my anarca. now it seems real to me. im excited mix emotions. i deserve this.

Hey ladies im suppose to be on the flat side oct...

hey ladies im suppose to be on the flat side oct 22 but that just might never happen. here is why well as i mentioned before in lab work results there was some abnormality in the lever department so my doctor did some more testing and nothing came up he says everything is fine. now my plastic surgeon requested medical clearance due to this the time i have an appoinment to see my primary doctor is on january 02 because he is booked every single day. which means i will have to wait till january 02 to get medical clearance and my surgery is.oct 22 sounds crazy right. i will be calling my surgeon tomorrow to see if he can get a hold of the doctor and geg the medical clearance. i hope he can because other than that i will not be able.to get my tt done till maybe a few years from now so i hope this issue can get resolved.

Im lucky my mom told me today that she took a few...

im lucky my mom told me today that she took a few days off aside from.the week off work she already requested. im happy she will have 12 days off all together i fell more calm because i need all the help i can. as far as my primary doctor i got an appoinment for.tomorrow for medical clerance so im lucky they squeezed my ass in there. lol i just i hope i can get the clearance now. im leave everything in jobs hands as i do all the time. one week away hopefully.

ladies im sorry about the typos but im on my phone and typing very fast. by the way does any1 now how to upload pictures from a mobile device. thank u

so i was worried i would not be able to get medical clerance not that i have health issues but i guess it was just a fear. my doctor gave me my medical clerance and she was.even nice enough to.fax it over to my plastic surgeon i call my plastic surgeon and let him know that those papers were on there way. im so happy now this is real to me. my surgery is just a few days away next monday to be exact. omg now im scared although i know my plastic surgeon is certified to do this surgery im still afraid. i have my goans, oxygen water, iodine, bacitricin, bandages, cough drops, meds, i will not be purchasing a shower chair nor a toilet seat raiser, my moms has a recliner so i will be using hers. anything i might need. anyone know how to upload pictures via mobile device.

i forgot to add that i also have my arnica that i.will start to take on friday. and also an antiseptic i was given by my doctor to clean from my neck down, perinial area up i have.to.do this starting friday.

So i just finish talking to eileen one of my...

so i just finish talking to eileen one of my doctors secretaries because i called yesterday and my doctor hadnt fax the medical clerance yet so i call and she received it which made me really happy that was taken care of. i confirmed my surgery while on the phone just to save them the xtra hassel she reminded not eat or drink past mindnight, to bring my pills with me and wear very comfy clothin. im so excited everything is ready my nanny which will be my mommy and and my nurse for the next 11 days after surgery also confirmed, i told her that i will drop the babies off monday around 6 am just so she can have the weekend to catch up with any laundry or shopping she might as well as resting since she will have her work cut out for her caring for two children under the age.of two and myself. i cant explain how i feel that im 3 days away from loosing that terrible looking apron that has made these last 10 months so measurable i know 10 months its a short time,but i never felt so terrible about my body as i do now and guess what im bless with the opportunity to have a flat stomach. i thank god for this opportunity and i will not let this go to waste.

Hey ladies so im actually relaxing, no nerves, no...

hey ladies so im actually relaxing, no nerves, no anxiety i guess that will come the day of the surgery. well today i started taking my bruiseguard the one my surgeon gave me well they are 7 packets of pill is detailed at the back of each packet the instructions. each pack is split in 3 sections and each section has two pills of bromelain which you can swallow and one more which is the arnica pill you have to put that under your tongue and that will dissolve. if the arnica is swallowed is less effective. so the bromelain has a taste to it the arnica does not. the arnica only takes about 10 seconds to dissolve.

surgery is 2morrow im excited beyond words can explain not scare at all. my husband will be off 2morrow so he will be waiting at the surgery center while i do my procedure he had to told he was not going to wait there but as surgery has been approaching he has help.me tremendously. i guess it got through his head that with his support or without i will be doing this. my nanny will be picking up the babies 2morrow at around 1pm i honestly wanted drop them off monday just so i can spend some extra time with them before surgery but my husband told me that wasnt a good idea because we will have to wake them up.to.early to drop.them off. i have everything ready by the way. im going to miss being able to pick my kids up and kissing them playing ticket games.with them. my kids melt my heart.

so today was my tummy tuck date. i arrived at center late because of traffic got there at 8:30 enter the operating room at around 9:00 the operating looks great i actually look at everything just a glance. Dr. tehrani is lovely before i went in the operation he took pictures did all the necessary markings. after surgery Dr. Tehrani came to me and ask me if i was feeling good and if i had any question and i didnt with the skin removal and lipo 15 pounds were removed. one of the nursing helped me get dress and i sat in a recliner to eat cookies and drink my water. she told to take my time and i did when i was ready i told her i wanted to leave. and she was bringing the wheelchair and i told that was not necessary so they had someone walk me to the car. a

im doing great is 3 am here in new york and 18 hours i did my tummy tuck. im not feeling any pain at all just discomfort in the lipo areas if i touch those areas they hurtttttttttttt. i though that with this surgery i was gonna be camel-toast since a lot of people have complain of terrible but this a pain i can manage. if you have had a c section is the same exact thing just add burning abs and some pain in your back. quick tips ladies try the first three days not to go on the bed because it will be hard to get to off it even if people helping you. my advice is have a chair lift or a good computer chair im lucky my moms has both so when i get tired of i use the other. im still sweating my mom had to turn on the central ac because i honestly couldn't take the heat. when i sweat it smells like anesthesia which i think its funny that the smells so strong. i just added pictures 2morrow i will add better pictures of the after i took those myself as you can see. also thanks to all my tummy tuck sister you ladies are awesome i haven't got to many of you because i turned off my email setting here by mistake any question please fell free to ask. and i haven't had any nausea or vomiting i guess i am luckily only drunk the medicine for nausea 2 times but i figured i didn't need and exactly i didn't.

29 days post op:: today i walk up feeling no pain which made me happy im not sure if its because im feeling or because i drank a motrin before i went to bed lol. last nite i inspected my insicion area and noticed that almost all my stiches are gone with the exception of the ones around my drain opening. im actually afraid of when they come out it might hurt. i have a post op for tomorrow but im not sure if i will go because i empty my drains exactly at 10:30 am to give it those 24 hours they talk about and guess what my drains are 1/2 full right under the 25cc and i was told that it will have to be less than 25ccs. im not upset about having my drains in but they do hurt. i will rather have them in than have to get the liquid aspiritated.

30 days post op: today was my pre op appoinment...

8 weeks post op: not much has changed i received my new cg on a size x large and its still not tight enough so i will be ordering tonight a large to see if i get a tight cg. i need it because i still have a kangaroo pouch and im not feeling that although i look great in photos. i must say im ready for round two yup i said it im ready for my next surgery this time i will be getting lipo in my stomach and back and chin and transferring that to my hips and butt and also im considering a breast reduction but my butt is what im really looking to get fix.

Hello ladies well as i mentioned before i am...

hello ladies well as i mentioned before i am looking to more surgery yes i know it sounds crazy but im just that type of person that once i can fix one thing might as well fix everything right? specially if have the $$ for it. so heres the new news as far asmy tummy tuck no change noted, i inquire a quote with doctor salama and received an email from cynthia with a price of $8499 all inclusive for surgery. this included lipo abdomen, flanks, upper and lower back and fat transfer to my butt only, surgical fee, anesthesia fee, facility fee, 2 custom cg, 2 post massages. omg to expensive. so there we have it now im waiting for DR. robles response from raquel. i need to get a breat reduction from a DDD to i will like a C, i need some fat taken off my back as well as the kangaroo pouch needs to go, oh lets not forget my face as well as my arms will need to be smaller so thats added and bigger hips. so i need chin lipo, lipo of back and stomach, fat added to butt and hips and i think im complete. after all these are complete i will put aside $10,000 for a face lift i dont need noow because im 23 but i will not be 23 for ever. lol

So I received my quote from DR. wakiris robles in...

so I received my quote from DR. wakiris robles in dominican republic and it was $4700.00 for lipo of back stomach and hips and tranfer to the butt and hips. The other procedures which were breast reduction, lipo of arms, will be done in a second procedure. I must say i think im going with Dr. wakiris robles because as far as I was told this includes recovery house and pick up from the airport and drop off. I think im going with Dr. Robles plus I like her big butts Im looking to get a huge butt so I know she can give me that. I will get my breast reduction on april 2014 my butt is more important.

Hello ladies how are you all doing. im doing great...

hello ladies how are you all doing. im doing great minimal swelling but looking good. I wont be post most on here anymore since I have another review for my bbl but if they are any questions or anything changes as far as my tt I will be here updating. so here is an update on my bbl journey.




My Doctor: Name not provided

today I received my quote to my surgeon the one I did my tummy tuck on oct 22,2012 he gave me a very good quote bbl lift with lipo of upper and lower back stomach and flanks plus added hip graphing for $8790.00 which I think is awesome my mom is also doing a minor surgery with him not nothing big something minor so why that one of the reasons he gave such a great discount. I think that's awesome I did ask if there is a limit on many ccs that you transfer because I heard from someone else on here that there is in the state of ny. quote fro salamana price: $8499 lipo of upper, lower back, flanks, stomach, bbl with graphing to the butt he DOSENT DO GRAPHING TO THE HIPS, he does lateral injection. 2 garment, 2 massages, anesticia fee, facility fee. transportation from and to the facility quote for Dr. Tehrani (my current surgeon) price: $8790. lipo of upper lower back, flanks,and stomach. bbl fat graphing to hips 2 garments, facility fee, anesticia fee, facility fee quote for Dr. robles Price: $5000( I added her quote but im not doing my sx with her because of a review I read) lipo of upper lower back, flanks, chin and stomach, bbl with fat graphing to hips 1 garment, facility fee, anesticia fee, facility fee, 9 days in the recovery house, 3 homemade meals a day, " PRIVATE ROOM" with ac quote for Dr. J (pending) so here is the deal I am looking to travel any where since I don't trust any one with my children except for my mom and my mom works so that would mean she will have to take vacation of work and that means two weeks so I don't think its fair for her to give up two of her 7 work vacation time to care for my children while im away. when I did my tummy tuck my took two weeks for my tummy tuck I was present in her home if I was to go out of state this time she will be caring for two small children with no help and I know how difficult my kids can get. so I honestly don't think its fair. which leads me with the option to go with my current surgeon so that I can spend that week helping my mom with the children like I did with my tummy tuck. im still undecided so we will see. I also added pictures on bbl review thanks for your support

hey ladies so here is the link the my new cg garment i will post pics tonight sorry i have been very busy.. love you guys by the way i 4got to add when they put the medium i almost passed out lol... it takes about two people to put the cg on. ok some people have asked me about the difference between marena vs fajas disenos de prada so here the deal the marena group garments are for the first few weeks because after major surgery u will.be uncomfortable so the marena group garments are very comfy you dont even feel like you have anything on it. now the faja disenos de prada are more stiff hard to put on and take off tight not as comfy as marena.butits mmanageable after you longer have any pain. i have a stage on marena group garment and a stage 2 and also this new.garment i just got yesterday. any questions.please ask me.
