NoT SURE

So I am 20 years old and somewhat curvy....

So I am 20 years old and somewhat curvy. 38D-35-43,my weight is constantly fluctuating.A year ago I was a b cup with a smaller waist and more curvacious booty. currently I weigh 180 lbs due to the depo shot.GRRR.NEVER AGAIN.i dont look 180 lbs but you can defintley see i hold alot of weight in my back and stomach. ive always wanted the coca kola bottle shape.My dream measurments would be remain a 38 D, waist 27-29,butt 45-48.My 21 st bday is in Aug and have a planned consult with Dr.Kenneth Francis for Apr 13.My scheduled date of surgery would be May 21st. but I am some what in a libo. At first i was going to go with Dr.Levokitz,and then i chose francis. Then i heard some good things about Dr.Pakeman but his price Was TOO high for me. Dr.Salama seems to be a favorite but im not sure if i can handle going to florida.DOES anyone have any INPUT?

Hi, how are you? My date is the 20th, almost there. I am soo nervous. I don’t know exactly how many cc’s I want. I guess as long as the job gets done I don’t really care. Originally Dr. Francis said 300 cc each, but I didn’t have a lot of fat on me. That was in October when I first met him. I have since then gained about 20 lbs so I am POSITIVE I have more than enough fat for more cc’s. I’m going to put up a post this weekend as I will be 1 wk away. I sent him pics of what I want. I already have a decent booty but I have dents on my butt cheeks so I really want those removed, filled whatever it is and a more round, full butt. I am soo excited I can’t wait to wear thong bikinis to the beach, lol.

Dear Reggie_babez,
Similar to Sheaven I have not heard good things about dr. Levokits. From what I read (about 3 stories here on realself) the girls have been disappointed. I didn't do any research on Dr. Pakeman so I can't really say, but from what I've read he has good reviews. Now on to Dr. Francis. I am having my procedure done with him 2 wks from today (!!!)4/20. I will create a post sometime next week, so as with Sheaven you can be updated as far as the surgery. I considered Dr. S, his work looks fantastic as well As his reviews but honestly I rather stay close to home, and not have one more thing to worry about. I hope this helped and again I will be more than happy to keep you updated.

PLEASE if Anyone has some advice for me on what to but or how recovery will go etc dont hesitate to tell me. im eager for some new info. thanks guys
Hi SOG my surgeon is Dr.Francis as is Jellyely and im scheduled for the 21st for my surgery. i already did a consult a while back.But im from new york although i live in MD.i wouldnt want to see a doctor in MD because they are very pricey. I did alot of research on doctors before i decided.

My appointment with Dr. Francis is schedule for may 31 st. I'm coming from south Jersey. Can you give me a update after your procedure.

I visited Dr.ridriguez today and he gave me a $17,000 quote. YIKES!!!
I lOve and agree with everything he had to say, well except for the price.
I've been searching and they're the only 2 doctors results I seem to like. Who else would u recommend?

Finding a plastic surgery is hard . One person told me that Dr.Salama only had two years experience another told me he had three. If that's true its not enough experience to perform BBL's . Your fat can re absorb if its not done properly . It made take a year before it starts to dissolve. Which is a totally waste . Please chose the surgeon that has the most experience . I was talking to a friend of mines and our discussion led to possible risk . I knew someone that died from Lipo . She died of a fat embolism a couple of hours after surgery . It didn't stop me from getting surgery . But its definitely an eye opener . Do a lot of research & ask a lot of question .

Yes I agree. I've been searching for anyone who has had Dr.samala perform the surgery over a year on, and I can't seem to find anyone who is more than a year post op... I'm looking into dr. Jimmerson also. He has amazing results. Let me know if u find anyone who is more than a year post op

wat really?oh no he didn't.i better get like 700 lol.thanks jellyely.i have been kind of skeptical because it doesnt seem like he gives big butts like dr.salama

I was too but remember my main thing was for my stupid dents and I wanted more roundness, you know the bubble. Just make sure you tell him that. I'm sure you'll look great!!

Hi Reggie, you are almost there!!! I'm very excited for you. I do have one main advise for you. Make sure you tell him you want aggressive lipo and to put as much as he can. He only put 350cc for me :-/.

6 a.m is my surgery.i hope and pray all goes well.
JELLYBELLY- you said that you had your surgery on April 20th? ( We know who you are and are very saddened that you would comment so soon.) As you can see we urge people to wait the full 6 months in order to see results. You are going through the swelling process so of course you are not going to see results cause you are swollen everywhere. It takes 6 months for swelling to go down. You can research that as well. Swelling takes 6 months and your body will only get better. I know will be like everyone else and be happy with the results, im just sad that you would comment so soon as we stressed that it takes months for a body to heal from lipo and you start seeing your results months later. Please look at all his other reviews. Everyone that wrote a review has waited for there results and commented properly. Hope this helps other patients that are looking to have there surgery with Dr. Francis as he is well known for his work in New York. People come from all over the world to get the brazilian butt with Dr. Francis so we urge patients to wait the FULL 6 months before they post a negatitive review. We know patients are eager to see there results, but they have to be patient as well. Please remember this is surgery you had that you have to recover from. It doesnt take a few weeks. It takes months. Thank you. Dr. Francis's office.

This site was to inform everyone else about the experiences as a whole that we are having. In my post (if you would look) I said I was down over the results and not what i expected so far, I also mentioned I might be having the post sx blues as well as the fact that I am hoping it will get better with time. I have praised Dr. Francis and his staff to everyone that has asked me about him so I find it extremely harsh that you would point out my comment to another patient that was meant so that she could get what she expected specially when I recommended him. I am also really sad that would start your comment by "you know who I am".

Why are you defending this doctor ? Do you work for him ? Have you had your BBL with him ? She's only writing about her experience . Although he gave her a nice shape. She has dents. Recovery from this procedure is hard enough . I can't imagine having deep dents after my procedure .

Okay guys so let me tell u about my journey.I...

Okay guys so let me tell u about my journey.I reached nyc about 1 or 2 in the morning so as soon as I got to my sis house we got ready and hopped on the train.I wore a all black maxi dress just in case I bleed and some sandals.my surgey was at 6.I don't think dr.francis looked back at the bria myles pics I had brought but at that point I just wanted the best figure I could get.I have tiny veins so I got stuck about 8 or 9 times by anesthesiologist before he got a I.v in my hand.one min I'm talkin to everyone and then the next I'm knocked out.I woke up in so much pain like 3 hrs later.I just kept throwing up while the nurse was tryin to fix my bandages.I was so agonized because of the pain and naseau.I just wanted to be done so I could lay down.the taxi ride home was horrible because I felt every single bump.

I forgot to mention that when I first woke up and...

I forgot to mention that when I first woke up and stood up it felt like I was peeing on myself everytime I threw up.u may feel like this too but its really all the bloody fluid squirting out the small inscision where your abdomen is. I got 600cc from what I heard.hopefully 600 in each.When I got home I needed help gettin in bed because for one it was high and two the pain was through the roof.I had a little bucket in the corner of the room to pee in.messy.I couldn't squat low enough to pee and for some reason the pee was goin every which way.thank god for sis who helped wipe me since I couldn't reach in the back.although now she seem kinda fustrated.but I started trying to wiggle out the bed which had my belly feelin like. It was ripping.today I'm doing everything on my own.my left butt cheek was killin me for 2 days and I couldn't sleep.but I just kept rubbing the arnica gel on it and it really helps.of course my butt is still hard.I've just been sleeing on my chest.I don't like this binder they gave me only because it doesn't cover the lower part of my belly so that part isn't compressed at all.
Reggie take it day by day...can't wait to see you photos. I hope you were able to get 600 on each butt cheek :)

@butter honey my butt defintley doesn't look anything like bria myles but that's expected.I do wish I had some more hips buttt.my waist is still swollen with fluid.if my waist goes down a couple inches I would have the perfect coca bottle shape.right now I just really need a appropriate garment for my waist before I can def say yes.

Yesterday I was feeling better.I climed the stairs a couple time to go to the kitchen and bathroom too.later in the night I went to a casino for like 2 hours.I. had to try and sit in the car so I put pillows behind my legs so my butt wasn't touching the seat.I stood at the casino.don't follow me because today my body is in some excruatin pain.even if u start feeling better I think everyone shouls just take it real easy for the first two weeks as if they just got out of surgery.lesson learned.
@Reggie_babez, I am so happy to have found your review of your bbl with Dr. Francis! Iam scheduled to have surgery with him in August. After all the research I did, I realized that due to vacation restrictions at work it would be best to have my surgery in ny, which is where I live. I wanted to go with Salama since he seems to be the butt expert, but it wasnt in my cards. Anyway, here I am waiting for my big day, nervous as hell, because I want great results. I want a nice, round booty, hell Im paying ALOT of money! but it seems like Dr. Francis is too Conservative and now I'm scared I made the wrong choice. I really want know how ur results have come out because honestly, Iam willing to lose my deposit if my results wont be worth the money in the end. I pray that you are happy, because I know how much this means to us BBL girls!

I agree wth you @havenot. His results may be just fine, but to others its too conservative. Alot of us want a big ole ghetto booty for our money!! lol

Hi EveryOne

Im so happy i finally found an up todate website with real people that can relate to the same questions in concerns that i have. I have been doing research for a while now and decided to go with Dr.Salama. he have great reviews and the price is not so expensive. from other reviews i have read Dr.Salama puts more fat into your butt, becuase he's well aware that it will go down in due time. so he wants you to have the results that you'r looking for afterthe 6 mths. I live in miami fl, and Dr.Salama has the best reviews i have read so far.No, he doesn't have X amount of yrs of exper. but from the pics i have seen from his work. he seem to do an GREAT JOB!!! so I have schedule my consultation with him June 13th

I finally had a bowel movement today and that relieved some sharp pain I was having in my right side and chest.my uterus has all this fluid build up.I feel as if I should have had a drain there because it went from beeing flat to looking like..a uterus of an older woman who had at least one child.it really bothers me that I have this little pouch so I want the doc to drain it.I have to wait uuntil next week to get a proper waist cincher.this waist cincher has lines that lay a pattern on your skin.my butt is still stiff and swollen.I just hope and pray I only get a little absorbtion.dr.francis is a certified doc which is what I like because their techniques and results tend to be more rewarding in my opinion.do I wish I had a little more booty?yeah the max being 800 now that I see wat 600 on me looks like.
Clbany yeah I have one drain centered in my butt crack.although I feel like I shouldhave had one in the front too because of all this fluid build up.its really easy u just squeeze the jp drain and the fluid comes out.when your done u squeeze the drain to get the air out and then u pop the cover on while squeezing.

Um I was meaning to ask did you get any draines? If u did how does it work?

Reggie_babez I'm so glad ur doing good!! After surgery, I wish u a speedy recovery as well n my date is for sept 21, 2012 with Dr.Francis too I can't wait and @ lovethyself I was feeling the Sameway nice shape but what the hell I want round, projection, I want to be able to shop with out worries n insecurity. I want to feel complete. So we better speak up and ask for what we want that's all.

I'm so pissed off because my butt has shrunk visibly.I'm so upset ubout it and my stomach just isn't small like how it should be.everyone else is comin out of surgery with at least a smaller waist.I'm fustrated and would love to hear what this doctor is going to tell him.I just hope my butt blows up..

Honestly if evryone has to keep questioning the doctors ability.or they can't even find good pictures of his past surgies on his website...just ggo with your gut and see another doctor who has a lot of patients backing him up.as of right now I'm just flat out unhappy with my results.
Hi Reggie,
I hope you are feeling better today. I honestly thing the healing part is the most frustrating and agonizing part specially because we obsess over our body and whether we got what we paid for, and of course this is all based on my experience. I was seriously obsess and I’m still stalking my own butt, and stomach to see if there is any progress. My advise to you is to try to distract yourself and take it day by day. Although your butt might lose volume hopefully so will you stomach and waist, so your butt will look bigger just because of the proportion difference. Fingers crossed it wont lose any more volume though. I hope this helps :-)

Dr Jimmerson puts a triangular shaped device/tool at the top of his girls butts under the garment. I asked one bbl sista what it was. It leaves a triangle print, but over time it leaves a nice shelf. He is the shelf man. She is on realself under Dr J. Vedette and Baja are good garments. Best wishes

I went to the doc yesterday and had my drain removed.I brought upthe point to him that I don't feel as if I got enough volume although the shape of my butt seems fuller.he measured me and I'm a 45.5 around my butt which isn't a big difference from before.ill just keep wearing a shaper for my waist and hope it goes down to the 20's.the doc swore I look good and even gave me the before pics.when I asked him why my waist is still like a 34 even though my stomach is flatter he said its swelling.honestly I'm just not satisfied and will post pics mon when I get home for anyone whose asking.I don't know if I would do a round 2 and if I do it will not be this doc or any doc in nyc.ladies save your money and go to atlanta or florida where the best docs are.
Hey Reggie, how r u? How is ur healing coming along, I hope that u r well and that u have find some comfort in ur results. Please let us know how u r. I'm scheduled with Dr. Francis but after reading ur review and jellyely I'm not to sure I will go through with it. So if there is Anything that u feel that I should consider before making my decision, please let me know. Feel free to inbox me. I'm eternally great full!

ok guys.right now my waist is about a 31 or a 30 with the waist cincher.my butt is a 45.2 days after surgery i was at 47 which is wat i liked.the doc said he took 3 liters of fat which is alot but i only got 615 in one cheek and 600 in the other.i was really cold when i woke up from surgery due to all that fat taken.my pics dont do alot of justice but i already had a big butt..around 43 or 43.5.so now that im a 45 thats not such a big difference.im short 5'3 so it looks good.iv been getting alot of stares and people keep asking if i lost weight.but according to my sister my butt looks about the same size only fuller. i wanted to go for 48 inches.i def lost some volume and my hips arent filled bout like i wanted them to be.i did shed some pounds.when i checked last week i think i lost 8 lbs.i have to weigh myself again.the garment the doc gave me was horrible. i recommend getting your own because his does not smooth out your tummy..it does the opposite. i brought this boy shorts body suit that has the bra part open in a small.lets just say it took me a half an hour and two ppl to get it on and off because the waist part could not come over the butt.the garment is wonderful no doubt because it really shapes you and its smooth,but it doesnt have a zipper or anything so u just have to pull it on. its made of leather and elastic so its really good.i got tired of it for now so i brought a waist cincher from macys which is so much more easier and comfortable.im kinda dissapointed but im kind of satisfied if that makes sense because my body is more shapely but just not as much as i wanted. i keep measuring my booty to see if i lose anymore volume. if i do i will cry!!

I went back to work last night working 12 hr...

i went back to work last night working 12 hr shifts which requires me to sit at a desk. all i can say is stressful. i try to put all the weight on the front of my legs.its hard and i know everyone is looking at me like why does she seem so uncomfortable.not to mention i had to kinda sit for a few minutes in a car while riding with family because i didnt want tontell them.its been a stressful recovery so far.would i go for round 2? yeah but that would be prbly 2 years from now when im good financially so that i can have a comfortable surgery with nurses and all the good stuff.it would also be with a different doctor.

I have to say this...alot of the girls on real...

i have to say this...alot of the girls on real self are trying to achieve a a 40 in and up booty.my booty was already a 43.5 so i was going for a BIG booty.like 48 in. in comparison to my pre op booty.dr.francis may be good for girls who didnt already have a booty.so i dont want anyone to refuse to go with him because of my reviews.i guess it just depends on your body.i hopebi have helped somehow.ask me any questions.

alot of people were saying i had the nicki minaj booty although it doesnt look like it in the pics.but u got to think of the inches because the ics arent all that accurate.i dont think i have the minaj booty now because its soft now.and ive lost some volume but it still lokks big to everyone else but me.o,k thats all for now.
Reggie you look good, ur waist looks small my god if I get half of what u got I'll be happy camper! Just remember to keep ur garment on, so which one are u wearing?

i feel like he hasn't really given you a shelf that you should of got. the size or your actual butt is big like mine but i feel like without the shelf there's no point in having a big butt because it doesn't look toned etc he's just added fat but theres still no shelf (upper roundness) i understand why your not happy!

Im Sorry that you didnt get what you wanted but I pray all is well n that you will get the money for round 2.

Anywayz dont worry u wil get a second chance n your results will be fabulous!!!! God Bless.
