Hello Ladies, I am new to this forum. I had my BBL and breast aug done Oct 6. I am glad I found this site hopeful to get support.

So far I am still in pain in the areas lipoed (abdomen and back flanks).How long until it was comfortable to walk to anywhere past the bathroom lol. I am getting frustrated with the aches and pains and not being able to move around without getting fatigued so quickly.

When I take a shower I am happy with the look of my new booty although I know I am still swollen etc.I had two days of crying because I do not know if this was worth all the pain and scared it might not look as nice as it does now.I have it but I dont know if I can post it since it is my bare bum after shower. Any insight?

I had my post op yesterday 10/13/2011. I was told that so far I am healing nicely. I was shown before and after pics although I love the booty I am even more exited about the loss of my big bulging belly.Alot of my swelling is gone today and I have lost some volume in my butt :( still looks good so far hope it stays that way. I love that I am able to move around a lot more now. I have included 2 more pics 8 days post op

Honey, you look awesome! It was definitely worth the pain. I am debating who to get my surgery with. Unfortunately, I am in NY and I feel like I haven't really found a doctor I am completely confident in. They are all in Miami and I really don't want to travel to have the surgery done :(

Hi smn80 I saw that u got both bbl and breast augmentation together so that means you gave to be resting and sleeping on your butt. This has not affected your results? I had breast lift,tt, and bbl together. I'm 12 days post opp and I'm not liking the results. I needed more fullness at the bottom part of my butt and now that the swelling is going down it looks almost the same. Was wondering if it could be because I have been on my butt so much. Also my doc only put 390cc on each cheek.

belmont75: I'm sorry to hear that. You should avoid sitting as much as you can for 1 month post-op. Try to be patient, it's still way too early to judge your end results. Who was your doctor?

Ok I'm trying to stay off my butt as much as possible hopefully some of the fat on top of my but will drop to the bottom of my booty. If not I will ask my doc to do it again reduced price of course if its his fault he should do it. I had my procedure done in texas.

dont do it again with the same dr because he will repeat the same fault try to refund some money and change the dr
good luck

You look sore but you look goo congrats. I think your results now look greta but your end results will be beautiful. Your before body looks like mine as far as the stomach area so I hope to get good results as well.

I think SMN8O has quoted for the bbl alone but I could be wrong .... Results look good I can't wait till mine.... Waiting for april.... Are you still in pain? Did u have to have drains put in?
  • Reply
the pain is so much tolerable right now I am able to move around but it takes a lot of strength out of me to walk z(most likely compression garment)
