Hi beautifuls! well i finally scheduled my surgery...

Hi beautifuls! well i finally scheduled my surgery with Dr Gongora in mexico! my surgery is scheduled for april 9th but they suggested i come a day earlier so the can run tests or what not. I'm 5'4 125 lbs, i already had a boob job and now i need the butt to match! i am getting lipo on my back and flanks, butt implants, and fat grafting around the implant for $8,000 USD. that includes: surgery, anesthesia, pre-op studies, medication,surgical and medical supplies private recovery room with private restroom and shower, all of my food and beverages and a 5 day stay at their clinic with 24hr nurse assistance. and on top of that I'm allowed to have one person accompany me the whole time free of charge which is awesome. not to bad.. don't get me wrong i am sooooo nervous especially because I'm going to mexico for this. but other then that i've been talking to Jessica ( an employee at the clinic) she is super nice and answers all of my questions. i will be arriving in san diego april 8th and she will be there to pick me up and drive me to the clinic. that service is an extra $200 but id rather her pick me up then trying to find the clinic by myself and get lost somewhere in mexico. since i live in chicago, i had to send them 10% of the 8,000 which is $800 to hold my spot. i did that through banks, she emails you the account info, and pre-op requirements. pretty simple just the basics. i cant wait to have this butt especially since my b-day is may 27th so hopefully i will be healed by then lol.. ill be sure to put "pre" booty pics up tonight

Exactly one month away!

so today i am exactly one month away, and wanting the time to fly by so i can go already.. here are a few pics to give you an idea of my size :) ill have the BF take better ones later

So ladies I just emailed my flight information to Jessica and she will be picking me up from the airport! Now reality is setting in. Now all I have to do is prepare my list of items I will need for my healing process and my recovery. I'll be sure to update my list as I go.

1 day post op

So I finally landed in beautiful Dan Diego and the weather is amazing :) Jessica emailed me last night telling me what car she would be in and it was a blue van with the clinic logo on the side, really easy to spot. She's super nice to. So when I landed I noticed that she wasn't there.. I gave it about 40 mins until I called the clinic to make sure she was still coming lol. And she was.. So after an hour of waiting I noticed the van! I jumped in and Jessica greeted me.. Then we were off! It took about 15 minutes to get to the border. After that it took about 15 more minutes to get to the clinic. When I got there I filled out some paper wk and headed to my room.

The room is pretty basic. It's a twin hospital bed and a tv (with English Chanel's) then the male nurse Eddie introduced himself and so did the female cook.. She asked me what I liked to eat cause all they served was chicken, salad, and salmon.. Of course I said chicken. Then about 30 minutes later she brought me a tray of food. Also I've been trying to connect to wifi for the past 4 1/2 hours. Still not working and it's driving me insane cause it's only 430 and I'm beyond bored out of my mind.

So it's 630 now and still nothing new.. Still no wifi and I'm about to go insane lol.. Ughhh so bored..

Ok so it's 745am and one Of the nurses came in to draw some blood and give me and IV.. Then she brought me a ton of paper wk to fill out but I only filled out the English ones cause I can't understand Spanish. Then after that she said for me to shower with some green soap and put a gown on.. It's now 820 and I'm just relaxing for now and watching some tv. I'm beginning to get nervous, cause just in a few hours I will be getting my SX!! Oh and still no wifi!! Lol

Around 830 I had an EKG then the nutritionist can in then a physiatrist can it to talk me.. Then dr gongora!!! We then preceded Tk another room where he took some pictures and I was off to Sx!!

I woke up in some pain and they gave me a pain killer through my iv that worked wonders! No pain at all. I slept through the night but when I woke up this morning I was in pain and they gave me another shot right away.. Not to long after the the nurses came in to chance me cause there was some blood and leaking. They said that's normal. They brought me some breakfast and I passed out again. Now I'm up and the nurse just gave me some more pain meds and a shot in my leg to prevent blood clots.. I'll be on here as much as I can to keep up updates..

Oh and by the way I have 360 cc round implant :) so far I'm super happy about my results and it's only day one! It only gets better!

Update

So today I feel a lot better and able to get up walk around and go to the bathroom. Thank god cause being confined to that bed is horrible. The dr said my results came out wonderfully. I'm still all bandaged up but I will put more pics up ASAP

So it's now 7 am and they woke me up to give me an antibiotic and pain meds. Nothing else more. Hope fully they come in and change my garments soon cause they are pretty messy for the leaking. But other then that im ok. I'm in some
Pain and major discomfort especially from being in my stomach all day..

It's 9am and I'm bored lol the nurse just gave me another pill for my stomach.

I'm home!

So I just got off my flight back home.. Today was great I woke up took a shower and dr gongora came in to see me. Unfortunately my drains aren't ready to be taken out yet so I will be making another trip to get them removed by him. They gave me a garment to wear for my arms and my back but not for my butt.. I'll just order one.. The plane ride wasn't bad at all and I has to fly 4 hours back to Chicago.. It's just uncomfortable but painless.. Can't wait to get home and take some pics for you girls! Be sure to look tomorrow I'll post as much as I can.. Feel free to ask any questions.. And does anyone know when the implants drop approximately?

5 Days Post Op!

I'm beginning to feel semi normal. I got out of the house today and went to the mall.. It wasn't bad at all I just can't walk fast.. Here are some more pics.. As you can tell im still very bruised and swollen.. But it's weird cause it doesn't hurt at all. I take a shower everyday so that everything is nice and clean and I use lots if baby wipes :) the drains are still leaking a lot but that's normal I guess.. So far I like what I see. Can't wait for it to fluff.. TEAM GONGORA

Hi ladies so today is day 15 and I feel good.. But I have been getting sharp pains in my left side. I called Jessica to mail me more pain pills basically so that I can sleep through the night. But other the that I feel good.. I still can't really bend or anything. I've been I the car with the boppy of course and I sAt on it and it wasn't bad at all. The garment came in the mail today and I def feel more sturdy with it on… It's a size small and fits me perfect.. So now I'm just taking it slow and waiting to heal day by day… Here's a picture of the garments we can see what it looks like :)

I love your results!!!! I am seriously considering going to Dr. Gongora for the exact same thing! Jessica just gave me a quote today but I guess his prices went up because they are charging me $9,500 for butt implants, lipo of the back and flanks, and fat injections to the butt and hips. Have you had any complications whatsoever? Do you feel that the round 360 implant was enough for you or would you go bigger? Happy Healing!!!!
