Ok so in 2 1/2 weeks I'll be having surgery -_- I'm sooooo scared . I'll be having lipo to my sides, upper and lower back and abdomine. This will be my first surgery so I don't know what to expect. I'm 5'7 & 185 pounds. My medical Clarence in on February 29 :-) which is this Wednesday. I'm praying for a smooth surgery and recovery. I work in a call center so I'm taking 2 weeks off. Will keep u guys posted.

It's like a curve in your lower back :-)
LOL...I feel the same way about wanting the right proportion for me. I have looked as so many pics that I'm confused now! I know how doctors feel about seeing body parts all day...after a while they all seem the same. I think I've look at more back sides than Hugh Heffner these last few months. LOL! I have goggled brazilian butt lift, beach butts, and perfect butts to see various size and shapes to decide what I want the doc to do for me. I will be posting wish pic, my before pic, and my after pics once I figure out how to do it. We need to hang in there, remind ourselves we aren't the only ones going through this, and encourage each other. :)

It was quick and simple. My appointment was at 8:30. When I got there I was told to fill out some papers and pay the pre op fee of $195. Waited 5 minutes then I was called inside. Yeni took my blood then I was escorted to another room where she did my EKG. Then a doctor came in and said he's giving me the green light for surgery and will call me if I need further testing. He did ask me some medical questions and he took my blood pressure. Then I went into an office and was givin a package of what not to do and eat and also was givin my prescriptions. It's alot of prescriptions >_
Wow...that was quick. I had to gain 15lbs in order to get the surgery because I only had 3% body fat. I am going to ask to see the doc real quick when I go to make sure I got enough now and to show him my wish pic. I'm gonna go over the procedure with him the day of surgery before the procedure to recap what I want and give him a large copy of the wish pic to put up in operating room. I want to make sure he knows what I want and gets it right because I don't have the finances to redo it.

Surgery in 1 week. Watching everything I eat -_- since certain things are not safe to eat before surgery. * sigh* might just eat fruits and oatmeal till the 19th.


Vicki4449 is having her surgery with Dr Salzhauer this coming Wednesday the 14th so you may want to view her posting in case she posts some helpful info before your surgery. :) I'm excited!!!

Will post updated pics in a few. Besides the swelling everything is going great. Today is day 8 and I'm feeling much better. Aside from my love handles which dr salzr lipoed, dr Ortega did everything Elae as far as the lipo and butt lift. he is greatttttt with the lipo. Post op day 2 I saw curves. And my butt is big :-) I love it. Let's see how much I keep. But he gave me exactly what I asked for, aggressive lipo. I was upset back in october when they told me Ortega was doing the butt lift from now on not salz unless you booked before he stopped, but I'm glad ortega was the one. I'm going for my 1 week post op appointment tomorrow to remove my stitches -_- so not looking forward to it. Will keep you posted.


Are u alive?
