Ready for Me - Maryland, MD

Hey everyone..... Divorced woman, son grown, gone...

Hey everyone..... Divorced woman, son grown, gone out of house and finally ready to focus on Me. Always had body issues. I was the tomboy nerdy girl next door. I went from the tiny lil girl that was shaped like a lil boy to an unhealthy overweight wife and mother. Started my journey of change by going to Culinary School, becoming an Accredited Certified Chef, Divorced and Lapband surgery a few years ago, love the results but need to fix a few things. Boobies were killing my back so had breast reduction surgery last year. Next step was getting that bootie I never really had. Researched Fat Transfer BBL procedure for a year. Came across RealSelf site in July and spent hours on hours looking at all the pictures. All the information is really helpful. So I'm ready to do the damn thing!!!!! I was looking for doctors in the DMV area, but there are few out of state Drs I'm looking at . Would love some info from ladies who had procedure out of state. Today is my wish pic day, so I will be up trying to locate my future bootie. Thanks ladies for any info you can share with me. Looking forward to getting Me finally.....SMOOCHES!!!!

Wish pics

I have been bootie crazy for the last week. Searching for the look I'm hoping to achieve after the procedure. Really need hips bootie and a nicely sculpted shape. So these are m wish pics.....SMOOCHES

Happy Sunday Ladies...

I have my first consultation on Wednesday with Dr. Benjamin. Ready to began my journey, I'm so excited. Now I have to schedule two more consults, after I will make my choice of doctor. I'm hoping to have a scheduled date for November. Wish me luck....SMOOCHES


Today I had my consultation with Dr. Benjamin. He is really a nice guy. Received all the information I could handle. I took my fiancé with me and Dr. Benjamin answered his 101 question with ease. My quote for TT/BBL was 13,700 really steep but I'm not sure if I want to travel outside of DMV area to get better prices. Now it's time to think things over. Anyone with the same procedure done and willing to share their cost with me, please contact me. Really appreciate the information....SMOOCHES

Dr. Ortega

Received my email from Vivian at Dr Ortega's office. Sent in my photos last night and patiently waiting for my quote. Excited all over again. I also received an email from Dr. Fisher's office. Soon I will send my photos to his office also. Once I get the two quotes, I will make my decision. Have been reading as many reviews on Dr. Fisher, Dr. Ortega and their office staff. I work in the medical field full time and cooking baking in my spare time now. I really can't handle or like unprofessional, rude, unorganized front office staff. It's a reflection on the business. I hope these two Drs both have great staff. Fingers crossed........SMOOCHES

Need list

Hello Dolls....
I need some help can someone please give me information on the items I need after having my procedure. I want to have everything I need in advance. Hoping to get a November date, if I have to come up with more cash then I would need a date in early next year; an early birthday present to myself. Thanks in advance for the help with the items i need.....SMOOCHES


Yesterday and today I received quotes from Fisher and Ortega office. Both are really great and in my price range. There is only a $400 difference and the recovery house is different. Me and my honey are going to discuss it tonight and I will make my deposit tomorrow. A couple of weeks ago I was upset and ready to just give up on having the procedure. Glad I thought about it longer, did more research and not just look at docs just in DMV area. Now I'm looking at the Fisher pics and Ortega trying to decide on the right doctor for me. Can some one please share their supply list with me and websites to get items. I really appreciate the help.....Thanks for the help Ladies!!!!!!! SMOOCHES


Today I finally decided on Dr. Ortega. Deposit paid today and date set, I'm set for November. Vivivian my coordinator was very helpful, I hope she knows I'm gonna email her to heck with all my questions.....LOL. So excited and can't wait for November. Decided to take one wish pic with me, and allow Dr. Ortega to work his magic. I want nice full hips and a round juicy booty. Now I can start working on my supplies to take and have when I return. Again so excited!!!!!!

Date Change

I decided to change my surgery date from November to December. Wanted to make sure I had enough leave for work, kind of upset. But I need to have a full paycheck while I'm out for the month. It's all good, more time to get my supplies. Also my honey decided we are flying there and driving home. He's the driver and I get to lay down the entire ride. So I will be out of sight until the middle of January, that's ok with me because I get to reveal the new me on my birthday. I can't wait for December....ready to go!!!!!

Boppy Pillow

Need some help Dolls, ordering supplies today. Had a problem with the boppy pillow, so confused on the right things to get. Don't want to get items and not use them because they are uncomfortable or the incorrect items. So any tips on this boppy pillow and where to order them will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dolls

Excited and nervous

Hey Ladies....I haven't posted in a while button the site everyday reading about everyone's journey. Well it's almost my day is right around the corner. I have finally received almost all my supplies for traveling and for home. I still have to get a boppy pillow but not sure which is the best to get. Any suggestions on the correct boppy pillow is greatly appreciated. Today my nervous energy paid off. I'm up really early now so decided to clean house, decorate for the holidays. I put my tree up, inside and outside decorations up. Porch lights will be for tomorrow's task, along with wrapping the gifts I already purchased.
Decided on my one wish pic I am taking with me and very happy with my choice. My honey is just as excited as I am. I will post my before pics soon and try to post after pics the next day after surgery. Thanks Ladies for the advice, abundance of information and sharing your journeys .....SMOOCHES


Finally an after surgery update!!!! Sorry ladies it took me so long, but this procedure is no problem, the problem is the recovery. Well let's start with 12-11 day before surgery. Left for Miami wasn't nervous at all yet. Got to Miami and the nerves met me at Spectrum doors. When arrived the office wasn't open yet, but the wonderful Karla answered my call and was there to help me. Me and honey decided to do some site seeing and then head to recovery house. The house and property gorgeous. Was meet by Carmen the person that would be taking care of me. One problem she spoke no English and we spoke no Spanish. It was really funny she was really a cutie. Karla again came to the rescue. They gave me wifi password info, download translator app and it was like being at grandma's house from then on. Wonderful family, great food and they eased my mind about procedure.

Morning of procedure the entire house was up and buzzing, got a moment to meet another female who just had the procedure. Miami traffic is a beast. My surgery time was @ 9am and I was worried we weren't going to make it. It didn't help that I left my phone back at the house, with my very important wish pic but all the numbers to the office. My honey made it work, he got there on time and had a copy of the wish pic I saved. I sooooo love

Won't bore you with all the unnecessary info, but Dr. Ortega is a great man. I had nerves on top of nerves but after our convo and laughing session I was ready to go. Surgery went well, I got what I asked for little bit of hips and a booty. I slept forever they said, but I was sleepy anyway. When I got back to the house they all helped out. Now the only thing I didn't do was my massages. The lady had left right before I arrived and they hired a new person the day I was leaving. That was my only concern. Now my problem started leaving Miami. The flight back was horrible. When traveling back make sure you request medical help and the sitting restriction you need. The worst two hours of my life!!!!! Now I'm home trying to set up massages and have to realize life goes on for everyone around Yes I have a month off but it's back to work for everyone else. Not driving to get to massages and surely not having someone come to my home...uuuggghhhh. Next problem is sleeping, if you don't sleep on your stomach and getting this procedure better start practicing now. It's pure hell. Have something to do, because on this site I saw people playing dress up, and taking pics smiling and nothing about bored mentally and physically. This is my second week after procedure and I am getting back into the swing of things. I purchased my own massage machine, talked to pcp and received a sleep aid. Ready to start taking those pics like everyone else. All in all this was something I wanted to do and I'm happy with my results. I will try to post some pics, lost a lot of photos grand daughter reset phone. Will post soon.


do I have to wear this at night also. Not comfortable anyway but at night very very uncomfortable. I wear it all during the day, when I shower before bed I just want my night gown on. Any suggestions
