7 wk post op update-BBL with Dr. Mendieta

I finally decided to go with Dr. Mendieta even...

I finally decided to go with Dr. Mendieta even though he is almost double the price of all the other plastic surgeons. Judging by his pics, he does the best work.

Day 1 of surgery: I had surgery at 7:30 am on feb 15. So nervous and excited. Didn't get seen by a nurse till 8:00. Anesthesia is crazy, I dont remember falling asleep, just waking up. When I woke up, I was sore, not really in pain. Bleeding from laying down. THe car ride home, I felt every single bump. The first night overall was not that bad

Day 2 and day 3 was prob the worst. No energy to eat, everything I ate, I just wanted to throw up, even the smell of food got me nauseous. My body was very sore, Not too painful. The worst is the nausea, dizziness, and constipation.

Day 4 I had to take off my garment by myself which was very hard because i was getting very dizzy. I was sweating and wanted to faint at the same time. I had to change the surgical pads, so i had no choice but to take off my garment.

I would say up until day 7 I felt very nauseous and dizzy. However I feel almost back to my old self now. Only issues are in the morning, my body is extra sore in the morning. Dr. Mendieta said he injected 850 cc into each buttock. I don't know if he really made a big difference.

I am currently 11 days post op, and I'm looking at my before and after pics, and not a huge difference. I am really upset about it. Hopefully time will make it better. I am still very bruised. I hope I didn't spend all this money for it to go to waste. I wanted a much more drastic outcome.

I just put up some pics 12 days post op. Im...

i just put up some pics 12 days post op. Im posting pics with my garment and leggings on because I'm still very bruised and its pretty unsightly. Once the bruising goes away, I'll post up pics with just under wears on. Dont have the results I want, wanted a much bigger but and more curves...very depressed about it.

Laying on my stomach sucks! i just want to sit...

laying on my stomach sucks! i just want to sit like a normal person. Feeling so much better. No more nausea, dizziness, and fatigue. Had my last post op appt today. I was told they took a full 4 liters and they injected 850cc into each buttock. I dont know how a full four liters only gave me 850 cc....god I hope my but will look bigger....I hope all this time, money, and discomfort didnt go to waste. Anyone who have gotten a bbl more than 6 months ago, please let me know if you liked ur results more the longer you waited or if you liked it less the longer you waited? Doc said my but will look bigger once the swelling on my belly goes away, but its also known that your but can get smaller too within the next few months. As for now, I'm doing everything to try to keep a high fat survival rate.

I am now three weeks post op...still not much of a...

I am now three weeks post op...still not much of a difference...i feel like my but shrunk a lil. so i'll post pics maybe during 4 week or 6 week post op. If anyone have had the bbl done, please let me know if you liked your results the longer you waited, or if you liked it right after surgery. I'm very discouraged right now. I know i sound like a broken record, but i'm just not happy with the size, its still way too small. I liked the size of my butt day 1-3 post surgery, and then it really started to shrink. Someone please give me some advice to how time affected the results. Thnx

So i am updating with my 7 week post op pics....

So i am updating with my 7 week post op pics. Still wish it was much bigger, but def better than before. If i ever save enough money, I definitely want to go back for round two to make it bigger,. Waist and hips shrunk another 1/2 inch since my last post. Cant wait to be able to sit, 1 more week!
