I am 5"1 weigh 140 (it doesn't look as bad as it sounds) lol I have always been fairly curvy but I would like to excentuate my curves a LOT more. I have tried the gym and every ab/butt work out known to man kind but nothing has given me the curves that I desire. So I have decided to see a PS.

Today I saw Dr. Perry to determine the best way to get the look that I want ( I thought in would have to get a tummy tuck) thankfully Dr Perry said a TT is unnecessary and a bit extreme for some one my age (25yrs) and size. I showed him my "wish pics" and he told me that a BBL would achieve the look I have in my mind. On the down side I would like a LOT of junk in my trunk lol however Dr perry says I may not have much fat to transfer bc of my size (I would like 900cc but he says that is highly unlikely) he thinks I will be more along 600cc each cheek hopefully!

I was quoted around $5700 idknif anesthesia is included but I'm waiting on a call from his assistant Norma to get all the details.

I plan to see dr Moises salma on feb 8 to get a 2nd opinion and I will make my decision from there. I have never had any type of surgery befor so any tips/advice are greatly appreciated :)

Yes that's no problem (keeping in contact with you) I have to make a decision soon bc I am aiming for march 1 for surgery and that's only a month away! I ammgoing to trynto negotiate a price with dr p since I saw a girl on here that had her bbl in January for 5200 yet he quoted me 5800 like a week after hers :/... Dr salama on the other hand has an amazing deal going right now..

sn: You should take a look at DBridges profile (done by perry) her results made me consider him she looks amazing
  • Reply
I understand what you mean. There is another female on this site who had her bbl done by him. She said she loves the shape that he gave her; however, he did not add enough volume to her butt. I'm a little nervous now bc you are having the same concern too. When you look on his site and go through the gallery you can see that he added a lot of volume to his patients' butt. Maybe he's not adding as much volume to yours bc you have a good amount of volume already. They determine how much they'll add based on your body type, the shape you want, and most importantly what you have already. I think you'll be fine. Your hips and waist has shape already and you have some butt. I am really considering him and trying to maybe get the surgery by april. Please lets keep in touch if you're going to go with him.

I do feel that he is capable of performing the surgery, I'm just worried that he may give me a look that he thinks is best as appose to wht I think is best. He insisted on performing lipoprotein to a number of areas (at NO additional charge) that I did not ask for. I'm not a big person so my only interest is in Cotouring my shape, curve in my waist and back.

So to answer your questio yes I would (am) considering him but I would make it my bigness to let him know that he must give Volume! To my butt. He seems to focus more on the coke bottle shape so your front will look amazing but I want Volume!

Now I'm a little annoyed I saw dr perry (consultation) a week ago and I've called his office the last 2days to get a Final quote but his assistant tells me she will call back then I never receive a call!
She says they need to come up with " office fees"... I didnt realize office fees varied with each patient ;( ... I'm really getting turned off with a week waiting & 2days calling. Maybe I'm just anxious but this is on my nerves.

On a high not mybconsultation with dr salama is next week and I'm really looking forward to it since this thing with perry has not come together at all.

Anyway I will try to update more before pics since I plan on my bbl being in march which will be here in no time.
I would really appreciate if any of you could provide a list ofnitems you purchased to prepare for surgery. Thanks in advance!

:( having such a delima... I am literally stalking this and dr perry's website lol. I am 100% in love with the silhouette dr perry provides! He Sinchs the waist of his patients and gives a perfect hour glass which is exactly what I want! But I also want volume which I don't see much of... Idk which is more important to me :/ i want Both!

Please excuse me real self family I guess I'm just anxious and rambling lol

I got the same quote. I was referring to her in the prior messages. He shaped her very nicely. I'm sure you saw that she experienced the concerns you had. I'm not sure that I am going to go with him now. I may be too critical but I looked at his pics again and it seems like all of the butts he did are lacking volume. Most of them are big (in terms of projection) but they're not not full enough in the middle parts. He seems to be really good at liposuction. I am still undecided.

Ok SO excited! Just got off of the phone with dr perry (not his assistant but the Dr himself) I already had my face to face consultation with him, and I had a few more questions so he called me directly to address my concerns. I think it's Amazing when the dr finds time to speak with his patient directly

Anyway he says we will be able to get around 900cc per cheek. He also says that he prefers not to do drains, he leaves the wound partially open to allow a natural drainage. He feels that drains leave you open for infection and causes more scaring, and he prefers not to use them. Also his method encourages a speedy healing however the massages are a must specifically in the first 2weeks post op. Meaning if you can only afford to do 8 massages it's best to concentrate those massages in the 2 weeks post op as appose to spreading them out over a month.

My final quote is $5600 includes anesthesia, office/clinic fees, one garment, and follow up appointments. I'm scheduled for march 1st which is only a month away (aaaaaahhhhh!) lol I'm literally jumping with joy right now lol :D

I will keep you all posted... Ttyl

Well girl you got sum butt to start off wit so you should be able to get the look you want. I have sum too so I jus cant see why it cant do nothing but be big And juicy! Lol good luck my surgery is in 11 days n I'm super excited!
  • Reply
Yes I seen all his pictures, but I haven't seen that many patients on here that went to him. But I feel comfortable going to him. He is really good at giving the hourglass shape, & that's what is really important to me, because I'm very boxy. To be honest I have nothing against Dr.Salama but his work really don't impress me. Yes he is good at giving you a big juicy butt, but as far as giving you a hourglass shape I don't think he is good. Are you staying at a hotel?

You're right have only seen one person on here that went to him I think her name is DBridges and her results are really nice. Something else Im a little concerned with is the puncture marks left on perry patients which I didn't see on salama patients. I just don't want a bunch of scars so if I do perry I'm gonna be heavy on the nerosporm and maderma and probably tatt over if it still looks bad. Other than that I agree perry shape is nice but my main thing is that I want my butt to be really round and I hope he doesn't use so much fat shaping hips that he can't give my butt the look I want.

Updat VERY IMPORTANT CORRECTION PLEASE READ!
Do NOTuse a heating pad of any kind after bbl
I heard from another bbl patient that bit relaxed her however I spoke to my ps and he advised against it. I also posted this question on real self for doctors response and they confirmed that heating pad is not amgood idea on any part of the body bc some parts of the body may be numb so you won't feel if the pad is too hot and you could burn yourself.

Sorry for the confusion ladies. Again Do Not Use Heating Pad

well I have made up my mind and i am 100% going with Dr. Wendell Perry! lol it took forever but my hubby and i both felt very comfortable with dr. perry and im sure that i will be in good hands

today i took the time to look up Dr. Perry (credentials/certifications) to be sure that he is who he says he is lmbo and everything checked out! I would advise EVERYONE considering surgery to check your doctors certifications (your life is in their hands)
if you live in florida here is a link to the site i used to check my doc http://www.floridamalpractice.com/linksdoctor.htm

also a lot of doctors claim to be "board certified" and from what i've gathered the primary certification that you should look for is The American Board Of Plastic Surgery (this is a MUST HAVE) no matter what state you are in the following web site should work for you it's ABMS.org
well thats all for now Real salf family Happy Healing

by the way 22 days until my BBL :)

Thanks girly! I want an hour glass shape too. N now im wonder if that should be ny main focus cuz whatever fat he puts back there is jus gonna enhance what I got but I still need that curve. N heart shape. Oh I know what I wanted to ask you. What is the neosporin for and do you have pix of the board you were talking about? Do you know if it can be used with any garment? Im getting the faja salome 0527 garment for stage 2
  • Reply
Haaayyy miss new booty lol... I have the nerosporm because I use it all the time on my little on for cuts and what not and it makes things heal REALLY fast if you use it diligently, idk if my baby just has nice skin and doesn't scar bad or if the nerosporm is the reason the little cuts and scratches heal leaving virtually no marks behind. So I figured it's worth a shot on all those poke marks from lipo :/ it doesn't hurt to try. But I've heard a lot of women on real self swear by maderma for scars too so I'm using both (nerosporm for healing & maderma for scaring)
As far as the garment I have I bought in store bc I couldn't find this one in particular online. My tag says Slender boutique style 150 size 32 (I think that's a small)
sn: I agree with u about the shape I don't want to have a big booty with no hips that ish cray lmbo! That's why I'm doing perry he puts hella emphasis on that s curve and hour glass. I already have a lil booty so I want to make the curves pop and add some more donk lol

My dreams of having the surgery are falling apart at the seams!!! First of all I assumed that incould get squeezed in for the march 16 since I can't do march 1 well they're booked the entire month of march bc I waited to long to get back to confirm my date (had to wait on my job to approve time off) now can't get it until APRIL!!! I'm sooo sad right now. I have tests that week of April so idk if I can accept the April surgery now.

Does anyone know if it's realistic to try and go to school for 1 hr at 5 days post op?

Thanks for replying back. I checked dr salamas photo gallery and I guess I preferred Mendietas work.. I'm looking for more of an hourglass. Just a better overall shape. Mendietas at 12,000 for the surgery and it doesn't include garment or massages. I guess because of his training. I'm so confused I dnt want to negotiate on my body but he is expensive. I will check out perry tho! Good luck on UR surgery :)
  • Reply
If you are able to negotiate mendieta I would go for it but his price is sooooo far off 12000 compared to 5800 is a big difference to consider. Price isn't the only factor though it is about which of the two makes you comfortable but you should see optimistic143 she went to salama and she has an hour glass
Im sticking to DrMendieta if I have the surgery. I just look at everyone's websites and he seems to have the best pics. He is though very expensive. I just feel comfortable since he's the most experienced. The only problem now is actually booking it!! I'm soo nervous :( I can't bring myself to book even though I've been researching this for two years:/

Ok 8 days until my bbl and I'm excited and nervous times 10!!! I just went on e bay and bought an under bust steel wire corset $58. I've done some reading and a corset will apply as much pressure as I choose (by pulling the strings to tighten) and I don't have to keep purchasing garments bc the corset is adjustable & it will give the extreme hour glass shape (I will wear a t shirt beneath it to protect sensitive skin) I will only have to replace it once my waist is smaller than 24inch. Also I plan to have lipo to my thighs and Im going to wrap them in ace bandages to apply pressure since I won't be wearing a full body garment.

He made my ass wide and flat I feel gross. I just had my fiancé to take all the dresses I bought for recovery back to the store and exchange them for sweat pants and t shirts . I'm freaking devastated $6000 and I don't even want to see myself naked

I havnt had my surgery yet but i've been on this site like crazy, you look very swollen. I mean this very seriously imagine if you had a severe swollen black eye, you couldnt really see the shape of it because of the fluid and everything. Keep wearing your garment lets wait a lil while for the swelling to go down and just do everything you are suppose to do, it takes a lil time I sure you will be happy in the end.

I agree with everyone here. Your butt looks good.The swelling will go down and you will have exactly what you want. This too shall pass and you will be very happy. Remember happiness is your birth right. You chose the right doctor. You made it through the surgery. Now let God do the rest. Happy healing.

Hay niki, My stomach measurement was 31 before the surgery and it's 31 right now 7days post (weird huh) I think it's too early to tell since it's only been 7 days I'm still swollen and have fluid from lipo. I know it will go down considerably after the swelling and fluid though

(8days post) Went shopping for pants for work today and had to buy a size 16-18 with elastic waist just to fit over my hips and butt! Yes ladies it's that serious lol my fiancé keeps saying DAYUM what did you do? Smh I must buy elastic band to fit my waist better but it's still too big on my waist bc waist to butt ratio is 31 & 46.5 big difference

My butt is still hard so I know it's going to go down more I can't believe it's still this big lol I'm happy though I hope it doesnt change much

One more thing. You must prepare yourself for the sideways stares... Wearing my garment my waist appears even smaller and butt even bigger so people stare like crazy it's a little uncomfortable :/

(10days post) yesterday was my first day back to work and it was hell. I've heard that the first 10 days are the most important innterms of not sitting so I'm finally there! I will continue to try not to sit but I don't know about going 4weeks like some women that a bit much for me.

Does anyone know how long before the permeant bbl result will appear? Like what ever I'm left with at 2weeks is that my final volume/projection? Or is there more shrinking after that?

In regards to your question about permanent/ final results, I believe it takes up to 3 months for you to see your final results. So your lipo areas will continue to get smaller, especially your waist and your butt may reabsorb some by then. After 3 months though you should be great. Happy healing, glad you are feeling better about your results.

Nah you have like another two weeks but not much gets absorb

(12days post) I went to a family outing and my ass was the talk if the town. Im still in shock at how my family and friends reacted. I didn't tell them that I had my butt done I acted surprised that my butt was bigger. I really didn't know what to say to explain my new measurements

What do you ladies who have had your bbl tell people who notice your difference in butt size?

side note: my butt is still big from 46.5 to 46 inch it's starting to get soft in certain spots. My waist has not changed at all I wish my waist was smaller but I guess it will get there in time.
I'm not as sore I'm feeling a lot better still have occasional pain but not as bad as before

(17 days post) not much to tell. im feling better except for the mornings i wake up with my entire body feeling like day one almost everyday and nothing short of two pain pills resolves the issue. but after the 2 pills i go back to sleep and wake up feeling brand new. im still getting my massages once a week now and they help relax my body (i only have a few massages left)

onto more serious matters. for thoes wondering about intamicy after bbl... its not too bad ya cant lay on your back so your very limited in terms of positions lol anyway my fiance was getting crazy with anticipation so i laid down ground rules no laying on my back and no touching my butt i told him if he wants the cookies he cant touch my booty lmbo he understood where i was coming from so we had no problems

ttyl bbl sisters feel free to ask me anything

(4weeks post) i haven't been on here by I wasnt...

(4weeks post) i haven't been on here by I wasnt feeling well. I still don't feel 100% in terms of pain. My skin feels raw on my belly and lower back so i have a constant discomfort (not pain just intense discomfort). Also my belly and back are still very tight so standing up straight is a hassle sometimes.

I'm ok with my shape I am defiantly not 100% happy with ,y body. I went to see dr S and showed him my concerns. I paid to have full lipo in my upper and lower back and stomach and love handles but he did not do my upper stomach or my upper back. Now that swelling has gone down in other areas it's very obvious because my lower area is smaller and flatter than my upper. I have fat that bulges around my upper back (bra hook area) and I'm pissed! Anyway he says he couldn't do those areas bc he reached the max on how much fat he could remove bs I don't know why he didn't tell me that or refund me for the work that he did not perform. Anyway he recommends a "retouch" in 6months to catch what he missed so I will undergo lipo of upper back and abs and have that fat transferred to my lower butt check area bc that area is Totaly flat (he didn't have enough fat to fill it) also one cheek ismbigger than the other so we will try to adjust this as well. so my butt is big and round at the top and flat on the bottom. I will have to pay for anesthesia only so around $1500 for this "retouch".

Well I will keep,you all posted and I've updated my pics. PLEASE don't tell me that I'm crazy for getting the retouch I appreciate everyone's concern but the doctor And I agree that the shape of my butt needs improvement as well as the unlipoed areas. Idk if you'll can see the problem areas in the pics but trust me there are problem areas and it makes me feel self conscious going out in certain clothes.

im about 2 months post. i have occasional pain nothing too bad. i went in to see dr S about a "touch up" and made a down payment to go back in december. im going to have the lower part of my butt filed in and have my upper abs and back lipoed. i dont want my butt to be any bigger i just want to adjust the shape because it looks funny with a "shel" and not enough plum at the bottom.

6 MONTHS POST well i went to see dr S yesterday...

6 MONTHS POST

well i went to see dr S yesterday for my follow up and to discuss my upcoming "touch up" procedure. it appears as thought my touch up will actually be another full on BB surgery. the lipo was not effective at all, now that the swelling has gone down we see that he missed a lot, and needs to go beck in to do more lipo. the only area that he did a good job on is my lower back. he did nothing to my upper back so my entire back in general looks bad because only one part was lipoed. my love handles need to be touched up and my upper/lower abs need a touch up as well

NOW FOR THE MOST DISAPPOINTING NEWS OF ALL!!!! my but is FULL of lumps! it does NOT feel natural at all! if anyone touches my butt they will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is not real/ive had surgery done to it. im so freaking pissed. i pointe this out to dr S an =d honestly he acted like it wasnt a big deal. he says he will have to go back inther to remove all the lumps, and fill re fill thoes areas with new fat to fix the problem. which means im going through the same full body surgery again.

in terms of size, over all i have not lost much volume, my butt is huge, but it does NOT look real. it looks like a big fake butt, everyone that sees me asks where i got my butt done, they dont ask IF it is done they ask where because its SO obvious that it is not natural. ladies please be careful what you ask for in terms of size you do not want some giant high sitting butt that everyone can ell you have had surgery. i wanted a nice full curvy natural looking shape not a big fat fake looking ass. my shape does not flow together it looks big and choppy. and overall my butt has no projection it is just REALLY wide. he gives the illusion of a big butt so if you look at me from behind it looks big but if i turn to the side it is clear that there is no projection just a wide ass.

anyway i am very nervous about going under agin im afraid that i will come out looking worse than i do now, but i cant leave my body the way it is now :(. i really with i would have just got lipo and did nothing to my butt in the first place. well i have to go see him again in november to get my scripts and do pre opt. then surgery is on dec 3. WISH ME LUCK. i dont have the time to keep going through this surgery mess so i prey that he gets it right this time.

by the way, the lipo had a really bad effect n the look of my belly button it made my belly button push forward and sag so he has to do an incision and sew things up to make it look normal again

@beautiful10 Wow I was so excited about your results I think you look great but again those are pictures everything may look different in person. I'm scheduled with Dr.S in April but reading your review I don't know if I want to go thru with it I put my deposit down already smh not sure what to do I'm 5'8 162 lbs measurements 36-32-40 I'm wanting to be 36-26-47 but reading your results I don't know any more I don't want lumps and I want it soft once healed not to concern if ppl think its fake what would you advise me?

whooooa im sorry about your final results. Hopefully the next surgery will go better. I was just talking to my friend on the phone and told her I was unhappy with my butt and wanted to go to Dr. Salama because everyone was so HYPED up about his results. It seems that everyone who has this surgery done end up having this done 2 or more times. I have yet to meet an individual who had this done once, an is 100% completely satisfied.... I talk to alot of others, and it seems like most do it twice, wether its too small, or they just want more lipo done. This surgery is veryyyyyy addictive, and everyones body reacts to it differently;. I was also thinking of getting this done for a third time, but after reading your last update, I am a bit relieved that mines is not that "fake" looking. I do get compliments hear and there, but I wish I had this huge, nice, round, Nicki Minaj butt, but then again I didnt want to risk doing this too many times. I just plan on working with what I have for now... Your review was helpful. And good Luck with your surgery on Dec. 3

(8 months post) well i am 8 months post on my 1st...

(8 months post) well i am 8 months post on my 1st BBL and i am scheduled to have a "touch up" in a few days. I AM SO NERVOUS! honestly i wish i had not paid to have salma do my re touch i dont feel confident that he will do what i have asked frankly he doesnt listen at all and when i express concerns he brushes it off as if he knows what looks best for me. although he gave me a big butt in my 1st BBL he made it big and miss shaped and people ask me EVERYWHERE i go about my butt and people close to me say it looks big and fake and weird. i am praying that he listens this time i put emphasis on the fact that i hate the shape and size it looks gross. this is what i expect in this surgery:

1) smooth curves/silhouette (he made my body look "choppy" in the 1st bbl
2) fix protruding belly button (he did not do lipo well in first bbl and left area around belly button fat and protruding)
3) remove "shelf" (the top of my butt looks like its sticking up in the air/on my back its awful) a NORMAL butt has a natural downward slope my butt has NO slope it just sticks up like a basketball sitting under my skin
4) lipo middle and upper back and love handls and upper side (he did NOTHING to my middle and upper back and barely did my sides) mind you i was charged for all this during the 1st bbl and i am now paying again!
5)maybe redo my inner thigh.We did not discuss this in detail but i will mention it before surgery he charged me and EXTRA $400 for my thighs and as you can see inall my pics there is NO difference at all

EVERYTHING FROM THIS POINT ON IS POST OP "RE TOUCH" BBL WITH DR MOISES SALAMA
first of all this man did not listen or follow directions. i have spent $600 for this "retouch" because he did an incomplete job the first bbl. well he fucked up again. he only filled one butt cheek he didnt even bother to poke the other cheek with a damn needle to make ie look like he tried, he just straight up did NOT touch the other cheek so now m ass is lop sided one flat bottom one full bottom. im 3 days post so im still swollen im sure i will see the rest of his screw up when swelling goes down. DO NOT GO TO DR SALAMA he does not give a damn what you want he will do what ever he wants to do to your body and you are left to deal with it after the fact. im in pain and PISSED OFF ths entire process was a waist of money

I'm sorry your not happy with your results but I think you look great. I can see why your angry that he didn't even stick a needle in one butt cheek..I would be too. Guess he didn't want to work too hard since he was barely getting paid anything

I told this hard headed as man that I do not want a big freak show ass. I want a slim fram with a nice full bottom. He did not give me that he gave me a weird shaped stripper ass!!! I'm pissed off. Yes he made my but bigger but he jacked up the shape and made it HUGE so I look like I have a big lop sided fake ass. No one wants to look fake this is some bull shit gggggoooodddd I'm so damn mad just crying I don't know what else to do

I think knowing a little about ur patient is important to figure out the best way to meet their needs. I told Salama that I'm in a professional setting im getting my masters I'm not a stripper (not that there's anything wrong with strippers that's just not My path). Anyway Salama admitted to giving me and I QUOTE "a baboon booty" he said some people like that look I told him again I do not want that look it's not natural or professional yet Salama still went in to the retouch and did nothing to fix the problem he just made matters worse. A good doctor knows his patients to some extent I dont expect to be BFF but damn know enough about me to understand that a "baboon booty" is tacky as shit and inappropriate for my line of work

Damn girl... I'm sorry to hear about your experience. If you told him that wasn't what you were going for and he did it anyway that's a huge issue. A BABOON Booty really?? Your booty is in my prayers girls. Let's just hope he knew what he was doing. Guess he figured he fixed the butt cheek you had complained about and didn't find it necessary to touch the other one. Have you spoken with him since surgery?

How about if you lose weight? Would that help your butt go down? Your review is making me nervous, thank you for sharing and being honest
  • Reply
I don't know for a fact if losing weight will make a difference but I am going to try that as well. I'm sure it will make some difference about the size but no matter how I look at it my but is WAY too big for my frame so losing weight may make my butt smaller but it will also make the rest of my body smaller as well so the disproportion in size is always there

so i went to see dr salama today, and honestly i felt a bit remorseful about my little tangent on real self. although i am not happy with the outcome of my surgery i shouldn't have had an outburst on line to express it. anyway, i told dr s exactly what i was displeased about, and he explained that seeing as though i just had sx on monday (now 4 days post) its way too soon to address things bc i am VERY swollen and bruised. sooo long story short after swelling goes down he would like to resolve any issue i have with my results.

he also explained the reason for there being no puncture mark in the expected place at the bottom of my left cheek is because he entered the fat into the cheek through a different opening.

my advice to anyone who isnt happy with results is to WAIT speak to the doctor and then WAIT a least another day or so to give ur self time to calm down lol this is a very emotional process and the thought of living with results that ur not happy with is mentally taxing and its easy to get on line and lash out which really solves nothing in the end. thankfully dr s remained professional despite my less than polite comments on line he was not rude or anything he was polite and explained things to me and went over pics step by step of my procedure.

i appreciate all the feed back from you ladies but im going to give it a least a month before i take pics or update real self. so ttyl

While I don't like that he used the term "baboon" to discuss your butt, I can appreciate that he is still trying to fix your problems. You are so right when you say that ladies should contact their PS and wait to post on the site. The Dr isn't psychic & if you don't bring your concerns to them how can it be rectified? T,he only problem here is you already voiced your concerns before your 2nd surgery & the results still weren't what you had asked be done. At what point will he listen? Are you going to have to endure this for a whole nother year before something is corrected? I'm baffled.

well I am about 4 days shy of being one month post bbl touch up. I am still on the fence about my results certainly not 100% satisfied but I guess Im content with the results. I am very swollen on my left side (hip) also there is a large lump on my left side dr S assures me that it is inflammation so I continue to wear my garment with board at night but in the day time I wear my full body garment with a corset to add pressure to my upper back and stomach. my right side (hip) is fine it is not swollen and its very soft it feels normal to me. over all I am still in a considerable amount of pain, I forgot how long the healing process was after my 1st surgery smh but I am doing well... ive added pics so you all can see the progress there is an improvement since my last pics
