I had a NICE LONG REVIEW then I don't know what...
I had a NICE LONG REVIEW then I don't know what happened.:( ugh now I am too lazy to re type everything but here it goes again
I am 24 years beautifully young with 2 children. I am 5'8 weighing in at 165 and being heaviest at 180. I have a boyfriend who pretty much will go with whatever I say. Of course he notices his woman put on some weight but I think he loves me for who I am. ANYWAYS--
Back in October 2013 I was referred by a friend of mine who is also on RealSelf to check out Vanity Cosmetics. They have a office location 5 minutes away from me so I drove there to get a consultation. They did my blood work I spoke with Dayomie first and she quoted me 4000 even before I saw the doctor for a consultation. I thought wow that;s great you can't beat that right? I didn't know too much about Dr Bass so I put my deposit down since Dayomie said my price is guaranteed with my deposit. I didn't want Vanity to be my only option so I started looking else where. Obviously, everyone wants a good run for their money whether its costly or not so no harm done by keep on searching. I checked in with Yily and Duran in the Dominican Republic my friend who is also on REALSELF is Dominican as well lol :) so if I do decide to go with Yily or Duran she said she can accompany me the first 3 days which is a blessing to me because she speaks Spanish she knows the country people you get my drift anyways I REALLY LOVE YILY'S WORK :) SHE IS AMAZING I HAVEN'T MET HER BUT this is based off of reading everyone else's reviews of her and seeing POST OP results the only thing that is holding me back on her is the local anesthesia.. if I do go with her I plan on getting my breasts and booty done at the same time since she quoted me $4500 for both BA & BBL :) PRETTY GOOD AND ROUND TRIP TICKETS ARE LIKE UNDER 200 FROM WHERE I AM AND the recovery house is 90 bucks a day or 75 if you buddy up :)
I AM LOOKING TO GET MY SURGERY DONE IN APRIL WITH EITHER OF THESE DOCTORS..
ANY SUGGESTIONS OR ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED OR IF YOU ARE GOING TO THE DONMINICAN REPUBLIC IN APRIL TO GET WORK DONE PM ME :)
I ORIGINALLY WANTED GHURANI BUT THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF MIND GAMES GOING ON AS YOU ALL KNOW AT VANITY..
THE DEAL IS HE NO LONGER DOES BBL HE ONLY DOES BREAST AUGMENTATION NOW AT VANITY NOBODY KNOWS WHEN HE WILL BECOME AVAILABLE FOR BBL AT VANITY COSMETICS HE IS CURRENTLY TAKING PATIENTS AT ELITE LOL let me stop I do not work for elite or vanity and I am not trying to start rumors or a war just repeating what I was told by 3 different patient coordinators..
I will post more about my nightmare ordeal at Vanity and post pre-ops
Later RS Dolls :)
IS ANYONE GOING TO DOMINICAN REPUBLIC LIKE BETWEEN MAY 21ST--24TH FOR SURGERY??
I am planning on using my vacation days for that week because memorial weekend will be a paid holiday so that is one extra day I can use for recovery time :) I plan on being out from work approximately 10 days I know seems like little downtime recovery. I will be traveling alone although I have my Dominican friend coming by over the weekend to check up on me I'll still be on my own

I didn't ask about a tummy tuck I know I am not ready for it right now since I'm still wanting to have maybe 2 more kids
She kinda just threw it in I guess in case I do ask. A lot of doctors abroad always try to combine the bbl with a tt which yes makes sense but some of us ladies are just not ready for it. I like her quote 4500 for a BA AND BBL?
Just to see Dr Fisher here in Miami is 4500 dollars for me for BBL ONLY yes he is local about a 30 minute drive but hey if I can get a 2 for 1 price I think I'll take my chances in the DR with Yily and she has so much results I am sold on her and its soo hard to get in contact with DURAN I sent an email back in NOVEMBER around thanksgiving I STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED A QUOTE OR EMAIL BACK FROM HER. I emailed again maybe 2 days ago but this time in SPANISH I even changed the SUBJECT AND PUT IN SPANISH in hopes just maybe out of all the thousands of email she gets everyday she might pick mine out first because its in her language LOL I dont think that matters we will see :D
QUOTE FROM BAEZ
Thank you for thinking of me for an evaluation of plastic surgery, for realization of all the surgeries you requested the most important thing is that you must be healthy and the cardiologist must approve that we can perform all procedures. Price for the surgeries that you are requesting, breast lift and implants, liposculture to abdomen, waist, back, flanks plus Brazilian butt lift (including hips) is US$ 4400 dollars, which includes:
-Airport pick up
-evaluation by plastic surgeon
- Laboratory exams
-Overnight stay in the clinic
-First compressive garment
-Free of charge follow ups
-Medication post-surgery (antibiotics and analgesics)
- Lymphatic drain massages and ultrasound massages are not included , cost is 300 dollars extra
You must be less than 180 pounds or around that in order to have surgery and diminish risk of complications. Dates are available for summer time. If you have any clinical condition you must obtain clearance from your doctor, if you smoke you must quit two months before surgery and have clearance of your pulmonologist. The amount of fat transfer to your buttocks depends on how many cc can be extracted with liposuction. Your results also depend on your hemoglobin level if you want to get excellent results you really have to be healthy and no anemia and please ask your primary can doctor to take some blood test like glycaemia, full blood cell count and creatinine at least to know if you can have all surgeries done. You can begin to take vitamins once your surgery appointment is near (Iron, Vitamin C and B12 plus Folic acid are very helpful).
Your date for surgery is important because I work from Monday to Friday (days for surgery are from Tuesday to Thursday). I just have one patient per day, you also have to arrive one day before surgery to be evaluated and have lab work done, and if you are arriving early it is better for you because lab test can be done from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm.
Medication included in you package are antibiotics, analgesics and gastric protection medication, all drugs provided are given to take by mouth, but you will have to buy Enoxaparin, water pill and creams for bruises and any other medication not previously included, medicines aren’t expensive here so you will spend less than 150 dollars. Massages are not included. You should bring compression socks to wear them after surgery. Your compressive garment included is a Fajate or Mariae’s brand item if you want one more garment cost 120-150 dollars. You will need to buy a stage two faja 5-7 days after your surgery so if you want you can bring one or buy it here in a faja store.
I work with a team, my cardiologist will evaluate you and my anesthesiologist will examine you and discuss what type of anesthesia suits you right, you might have epidural block or general anesthesia. Anesthesiologist and cardiologist have the last word about how many procedures can be done safely on you.
If you are aiming to have a breast augmentation, there are several brands of breast implants but all are silicone gel cohesive, texturized implants (Silimed, Eurosilicone, and Donasis) depending on the brand you choose then your quote might be lower or higher, (Silimed is the most expensive brand as we do not have mentor implants anymore). If you have breast surgery at the same time with Brazilian Butt lift, you have to know that you could face some issues with the projection and volume of your butt after surgery as you will have to sleep over your back.
PLASTIC SURGERY IS NOT THE SAME AS WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY; YOU HAVE TO BE INSIDE NORMAL RANGE OF BMI (BODY MASS INDEX) OR JUST OVERWEIGHT TO HAVE SURGERY. IF YOU SMOKE OR USE ADDICTIVE DRUGS YOU MUST QUIT THEM ONE OR TWO MONTHS BEFORE SURGERY AND TWO MONTHS AFTER TOO IN ORDER TO GET GOOD RESULTS AND NO COMPLICATIONS. PLASTIC SURGERIES ARE FOR HEALTHY PEOPLE OR THOSE WHO HAVE ANY CLINICAL CONDITION BUT ARE UNDER CONTROL, IF YOU HAVE ANY DISEASE YOU HAVE TO..
Anyways she is 100 dollars cheaper than Yily and she only does ONE surgery a day so I know I will be getting the attention I need.. I am so torn between the two.. Baez seems so personable but I guess because she takes her time with you and only works Monday-Friday like the rest of the working world AND SHE INCLUDED A LIFT WITH THE PRICE.. WHICH YILY DID NOT MENTION so that got me excited.. I've always been proud of my body until after I had my kids :( I had nice perky boobs nice perky butt and tiny waist... now.. I have fat where I had no idea it can go and stay there LOL like back fat? I WAS never the SKINNY girl nor was I fat I was just right :) Nice toned thighs abs you get the picture I look at my old pictures sometimes I cry and ask what happened to that girl? I had no idea I let myself go.. its not so bad but..ITS MY BODY I GOTTA LIVE IN IT AND I AM NOT HAPPY :(
IF ANYONE IS GOING IN MAY LIKE THE LAST 2 WEEKS OF MAY PLEASE MSG ME! MAY 22-24?
I want a buddy to go with :( yes my friend is coming over the weekend but I only get her for 3 days and she will come after the first 3 days post op -.-
