I had a gastric sleeve in 2010 lost 120 pounds , body lift in 2011 now ready for a new booty! Had to gain 25 pounds as I was too thin and do not want implants. Had previous surgeries in Tijuana before and have no doubts about doing so! My gastric sleeve was with Dr. Ortiz and My body lift with Dr. Castillo Calderon. I am still thrilled with the sleeve, the body lift was ok except he left some loose skin. I had to excercise like hell to get a fit body after. Now I have stopeed working out and gained 25 pounds so I can have a nice round bottom as I have a square shaped body.

Well u are lucky because you don't have any loose skin really from the big weightloss so u must have good skin which is a plus for bbl! My date with Salama is Aug 26 but I'm trying hard to gwt in sooner because I want to be Salamafied for my vacation in June!

Thank you still deciding on Dr.'s either Dr. Pantoja or Dr. Cardenes.

My Journey from 240 pounds to 120 pounds

My first photo is when I was at my heaviest 240. Second photo at my lightest at 115. Third photo taken 2 months ago at 135, now I am 145 so I have enough fat to gain an ass :)

I still have loose skin in my thighs but will not do a thigh lift , looks to painful. Besides that I do have some loose skin but not as much as I imagined. You have a great canvas to start with and I know you will look fantastic!
I like him bcz he's a christian and he practices safe measures! His facility is state of the art, very clean, professional nutsing willing to go ant mile and length for ur comfort! He just ndds to listen to pts bc sometimes pts are in tuned w their bodies and charts dont always apply to everyone! He told me too loose weight and i ddnt need to so whn he saw me it was like oops!
Nursing ....the extra

Not decided on surgeon

I have been researching for 4 months now and I still cannot make up my mind as reviews are so mixed with Dr. Pantoja and Dr. Cardenes. Dr. Campos Leon has good reviews as well. I need to decide this week as I will be having surgery in less than a month.
I am on the smaller side of some girls I have seen as I gained weight for this. I am not looking for projection booty but looking for the upside down heart hourglass figure. I had a body lift in 2011 and it was great for my stomach but my waist and butt shape sadly did not benefit much.
Hmmm just want to hear how happy people are with these 3 doctors, I appreciate any feedback.

If ur focus is too have a big donkey butt than Campos is the Doc for u. Pantoja is a excellent doc but he can be a hit or miss when it come to the bbl SX.

What do I REALLY need to bring??

Good Morning Lovelies!!!
I see alot of lists of things to bring HOWEVER mainly for TT & BBL. I am only getting BBL and aggressive liposuction.

I am staying at Beauty Care recovery house and surgery with Dr. Cardenas. Besides tolietries, boppy and funnel what is essential? I know the pain meds suck as I had a bad experience with mexican pain meds during my body lift so I am getting US pain meds before I leave.
Thank you as always !!

Getting Nervous...wondering if my skin will be ok after losing 120 pounds and lipo

I am getting nervous because about my bbl and lipo
I lost 120 pounds, had a body lift and my skin has done well but now with extra lipo and BBL just nervous about the results.
Additionally I turned 40 this year so wondering about skin elasticity. Ladies any experience with those who have lost large amounts of weight???

hey bubble gum I am excited for you! I'm having surgery next year with her. Are you scared about bringing the surgery money in cash though? I'm really nervous about having all that money on me like that. Should I ask to pay it all through paypal the morning of?? Or do they have an ATM there? lol would appreciate any response!
  • Reply
yes nervous about it. I am unsure if yoy can pay through pay pal good question. When is your surgery?
End of July I haven't scheduled yet. You didn't ask them before? I hope they would accept credit card. Otherwise you can PM me if you wanna talk more! I'm trying to brainstorm weird places I can hide the cash just in case someone tries to rob me lol

Surgery Day

So the day I have been both dreading and anticipating is here. Only dreading any potential pain but anticipating my new body!! Gaining 120 pounds 10 years ago was so hard on my body and since I lost it I saw how much damage I did. I heavily exercised yet exercise only does so much additionally I am 40 and my body knows it lol :) When I got my body lift it was great except the combination of being a runner left me with a boyish figure and no butt..I had such a cute butt when I was young. This is my treat to myself for all the hard work I have put in the past three years. For everyone having surgery today good luck and I will be praying for you!!!
I will update when I can, so far Beauty Care has been great I am the only one here. The food is really good and the ladies are so sweet!! Ok here I go off to Dr. Cardenas's office ????

Surgery over. Results look good!!

It is finally over. Dr. C was running behind so I did not have my surgery until 4pm. They gave me half of a pill at 10am which was supposed help me relax but did nothing . Otherwise all has been great! I will not put my compression garment until tomorrow so now I am wrapped up like the mummy. Carmelita help give me a quick shower and that felt better. I will take pics tomorrow however looks good so far. I had 900cc in each buttock and 230 in each hip. Also she put some fat in my lips and today I have a black eye and bruises on my lips lol. I requested the lips when I was high lol. Pain sucks but not near as bad as my lower body lift years ago. The staff is so sweet and accommodating. Waiting for Dr. C to release me to Beauty Care. Will update later

Post op day 2

Recovery sucks however Beauty Care staff takes such good care of you. I had an allergic reaction to the morphine last night. It was scary as my tongue started to swell. The antihistimane did not help much but I feel better this am. As expected hard to get out of bed, harder than yesterday as anesthesia was still in my body. Will update more must go try on my garment

So day 3 and it is getting easier. Still a pain being on my stomach as I am paranoid to even sit on the boppy but being on my stomach all day hurts my back. My results look really good, my booty looks good . The care at Beauty Care is so good the ladies are amazing. Had my first massage today, hurt a bit but felt amazing after and took a three hour nap. I will take more pics tomorrow.

Hi Suzannedee..I bruise so easy :( My swelling flucates as one hip looks bigger than the other then some days it is normal. I spent one night in the hospital before going to the recovery house.

They took 4 liters from my thighs calves ankles, but surprisingly no bruising! I was taking arnica and wobesym n and bromelian. The lower legs are in swell hell, but thighs are definitely smaller. The lipo is actually the staging for a thigh lift....I am afraid the lower leg lipo will not be enough though....will need calf skin excision :-/. When I looked today, the skin looked a little like loose stockings....I am trying hard not to judge results so early on !

Beautiful, amazing transformation from pre WLS to now!!! I am thrilled for you. How did she get your waist so thin and why don't any US surgeons use this approach? I really love your ass and hips, too. I like that,you went for a natural look. You look awesome!!!

I could not agree more! You look the very best of natural! Lia lot of gals go for the super duper exaggerated look...u look amazing...great job Dr. Cardenas!
Yeah, I do not like that "doll" look at all. Bubblegumbooty looks super sexy and real. BGB you must be thrilled beyond words with your transformation. I would like to get my waist smaller and my ass higher like yours.

Ok it's official: your nickname is PG! You do have a freaking amazing LBL scar....I am using a gelZone wrap ...pure silicone...around my midsection. I tend to scar well, mind you the largest incision I had prior to this was 1.5"! So this is the first real test I have of the theory :-). I will say it again ...score ONE for us post MWL folks....you have a bangin' bod there - bar none - no parenthesis....u go girl! And...if my lower hiney does not fill properly, out I may pay a year 2015 visit to Dra Cardenas!

Thank you onedimsum you are looking awesome and we both can pat ourselves on the back. It is a long painful.journey but worth it. Happy healing and keep in touch!
OMG I am in love with your ass. So, you are a massive weight loss person and you got that banging body without any incisions, just lipo? Didn't you have excess skin that needed to be cut off at least your abdomen? I have incisions all over my body. Don't get me wrong, I love my body and lipo only would not have worked for me. I just did not think it would work for any massive weight loss person. You look amazing and I am so happy for you.

lower body lift scar pics

People always ask me about my scar from the lower body lift I have one all the way around that goes directly over my buttocks. My Dr. was Dr. Castillo Calderon from Tijuana. He did amazing with a properly placed thin scar. Additionally I used scar fx strips almost 24 7 for 4 months and it made my scar almost disappear. I had to add contrast to the photos so you can see them.

Spectacular!!!
  • Reply
Wow ! Amazing, almost invisible...I had the same lift as you did on the butt and hips. Hopefully I will heal as nicely as you did.
It has been 6 weeks for me and my scar is starting to thin out. Is that what yours did ? My surgeon said that they typically pinch the skin and stitch it thick. Then when it stretches, it stretches into a thin line.

Booty gets bigger daily

I am amazed that each day my body seems to change. I switched to my second stage garment wearing foams and my booty is now bigger. I think the first stage Marena garment was suffocating it lol!
I was a size.4/6 before surgery now an 8 but I do not care I love the curves and I am getting looks left and right. Such a confidence booster but more importantly I am making peace with my body and will treat her better as a result..She has been through enough :)

Fluffed and dropped

OK so it has been a while but I am back at work (outside of the country) and it is difficult to get on the internet. Will post new pics soon!
I am overall still happy with my results. My booty softened up completely and now nice and jiggly.
I have started to workout because I desperately need to tone up.

Downsides... My butt has shrank a bit which is ok with me as I have lost 14 pounds since surgery.
I never wanted a huge donk anyway but I miss the hips. My measurements are now 40 -26-40 so technically I am an hourglass figure . I have some residual soreness around my ribcage area ..more than soreness I am unsure what it is... My stomach is lumpy but I am hoping with massage and working out this will subside. Otherwise I am still happy with the results.

Still happy with my results :) Butt is shrinking a bit but I am also 20 pounds lighter. I look how I look in and out of clothes. Now I started to do squats and lift weights to tone as over 6 months without exercise is hard on the body.

That is wonderful! My surgery has given me so much self-confidence and hey....i dont even have thighs or boob yet ;-). I have been doing a lot of reading on Plastics and the role it plays in our psyche. It is not only a physical change, but a change to "core self" that is a contstantly evolving thing. I certainly feel like this - plastics has changed who i am - not only who i appear to be (sorry if too heavy!) ....just things i have been ruminating on.

Going for revision surgery June 2nd

Hello Strangers, I will be going to Dr. Cardenas on June 2nd for a small revision. My hips are uneven so she is fixing it at no cost. I cannot wait to see the ladies at Beauty Care and the recovery house :)

So did you get your revision done?? Any new pics that you can post? Have a great day!

I have not. Im seeing dr. Salzhauer in the spring. Right now im dealing w a tumor the size a a large golf ball that popped up on my left cheek 2 months ago or about 6 months post op. Dr. Salzhauer feels its probably a fatty tumor? Will keep everyone posted. Good luck girl! Love the pics :).
I hope everything gets resolved. Will you be posting more pics? Is the tumor visible to the plain eye or you can just feel it and no see it? I've read about nodules that he has revise before on other patients. I'm still learning here about the scar tissue, lumps and nodules so I thank you for sharing. You look great by the way! Take care and please keep us on the loop :-)
