Hi ladies! I have been contemplating on doing a review. Since I would like to be VERY discreet about this, off the net. Seeing as how reading reviews from other women helped me out ALOT in making my decision. I will do the same.
I originally had a BBC done back in 2010. I actually did not use Real Self, a majority of the females on there are going out of the country to have it done. I went to Mexico to have mine done. I paid 6,000, total, for everything (sx, flight and hotel). I've gotten good reviews for the doctor, but I feel as if my results could have been ALOT better.
I had lipo to my lower abs, flanks and back. I had fat transfered to my butt and hips. After all of the swelling went down, my butt was bigger than before, but there was NO shape to it. People always told me that I looked good. But I would always have to tell them (people that knew about my sx) that, with clothes off, there is not much to look at. It did not turn out terrible, but there is no bubble. Also, my hips are distorted. The fat never settled properly. So now my hips stick out (not in the good way) and I have fat necrosis. I cannot lay on my sides for too long becausethey are hard and they hurt. Mind you I had this sx 3+ years ago and I still feel pain.
I will not blame the doctor for this. I never got the lymphatic massages I was supposed to. So I will blame it on that. I voiced my concerns to the coordinator and they agreed to fix it in June 2011. I could not do it because well...I was pregnant! Now that my "bugs" is more independent and can be watched for longer periods of time by other people. I will be having my revision.
I chose Dr. Salzhauer because of how welcoming him and his staff made me feel. I was still in the deciding process and they took time with me. I also like that Dr. S speaks to you personally. He did not make me feel rushed. He even asked me if I had anymore questions for him. There was a pause after that. I was taken back. I wasn't expecting that. Arianny has also been a tremendous help, so far. My original date was scheduled for May 20th. But days of calling/emailing, she was able to bump me up to May 5th. Now I am a little over a month away from my date and getting anxious! Right now I'm trying to gain weight so that hehas enough fat. (I might as well transfer more fat ;) It's funny how when you're not trying to gain weight, you pack it on. But when you intentionally try to put it on, it's damn near impossible lol I'm going to take another reviewers advice and try ensure. I'm also buying things that I will need post op. I am lost right now. I am now on this site multiple times a day to collect enough info. Any other pointers, please feel free to share. :)
Also I am in the process of adding my before and afters. I am.on my phone so I have to figure out how to get my pix from the other website.
