I am planning to get BBL in Dec '11 or Jan '12. If I can afford to, I'll do it earlier. I just wanted to know if anyone could give me tips or what to expect. I live in orlando but have been leaning towards going to miami because i feel the "more experienced" are in that area, among other places like LA, ATL, etc. I have been researching for quite sometime. The doctor I am considering is Dr. Salzhauer. I have heard many good things about him.

I am 5'5 and weight 169. So I am a little overweight. I used to weight 130, but I felt that was too small. When I was 130, I had no butt at all. Now that ive gained some weight, I have a little something back there but not enough. I would like to have the "Kim K" effect. I want a nice butt but not TOO big. I want it to look natural. I'm AA so it probably will lol.

My biggest concern is the cost. I wanted to know if anyone has had the procedure and how they went about financing. I am in college so my credit is hardly any so Ive been denied for financing. I would just work 2 jobs and save up but I kind of want this procedure done soon, and also a breast reduction.

Does any have any suggestions? Thanks!


Okay, I have been researching this procedure in...

Okay, I have been researching this procedure in and out! My first choices were Dr. S, Dr. Medienta, Dr. Salama, and Dr. Pazmino. There are all great but I felt they were too expensive for me. After a while, I decided to go out of the country because it would be cheaper they have many great PS in other countries. I was going to go to Bogota to get the procedure done. Then, I heard about Dr. C who is phenominal and has been doing alot of girls from MMH and RealSelf. I sent in my pictures and got a quote for 3320 which is amazing. It includes 3 areas of liposuction and would give me 500 - 600 ccs. I factored in hotel, flight, garments, etc. in the price and it came to about $6000 - 6500 for the whole process. After thinking about everything, I realized I wouldn't be paying THAT much more to get the procedure done in the U.S. So going back to my original choices and finally selcted Dr. S. To me, he has the BEST results. I really think he will give me the profile I want.

I submitted my information and I am waiting for a response. I am hoping it will be an affordable price. Sometimes he has specials so, who knows. It will be a while for me to set the exact date because there is a $1000 down payment, once I get that, I will set the date. I wanted to have the procedure in December/January but based off of my finances, it won't be until March (I'm hoping).

I posted a picture of me now, I will post more before pictures once I know how many cc's I will be getting and also once I lose a little bit of weight.

All the more reason to love Dr. S, he has his own...

All the more reason to love Dr. S, he has his own app available on iPhone called "iSurgeon" its a fun way to see how you would look with surgery.

Ok, Ive been going back and forth with doctors....

Ok, Ive been going back and forth with doctors. After weighing out my options, I had definitely made the choice to go with Dr. S so I got my quote and it was 9500, I like Dr. S results but for that price, I could go with someone like Medentia. I asked about the discounts because Dr. S usually has good ones but I was informed they will no longer be doing them. With that being said, I have decided to go back and go with Dr. Campos, which was my other choice anyway. He also has good results and quoted me 3320. So now with traveling and other expenses, I will be expecting to spend 6000 - 7000 for the entire procedure. Now I am unsure of the day but I am hoping for sometime around March or April of 2012. Campos is booking dates like crazy so a day in one of those months is more promising right now. Im just ready to get this procedure, but I now I know I will be able to afford it with Campos. I'll keep you ladies updated!

So I figured out my measurements.. Height:...

So I figured out my measurements..

Height: 5'5
Weight (As of today): 170 lbs

34G- 37 - 42

I find it strange Im a 42 in the hips considering I feel I dont have any. I guess they just need to be filled and rounded. I'll be sending my Dr. the measurements so he can give me advice.

Here are my goal measurements:

Height: 5'5
Weight: 125 - 145 (whatever makes me look proportionate)

34C/D - 24 - 40/41/42

I found the perfect "goal" picture and added it. I am for certain going to Campos. I will create another review for him once I set my date.
