July 1,2012 We Arrvied in Miami airport at 1pm and checked in at Residence Inn airport.
We stay here for the 1st week then 2nd week we move to Loews Miami beach hotel.

June 2,2012 i think Residence Inn is good for recovery time becuase it has fully equipped kitchen and full breakfast.
At 7 am we went down to breakfast and surprised they gave full breakfast like scrambled egg , egg benedict , waffles, sausages , bagles, yogurt parfait, fresh fruits and more stuff..
Then at 12 pm we went to Dr.Medieta's office for pre-op. I had appiontment at 12:30pm and I read and signed all froms by 1:10pm.
Still wait for dr. he was in surgery room. I was hungry and a lilte upset that i had to wait til 2:30pm to see theDr. So we went out had Cuba food . When we came back to the Dr. at 2:20pm ,he was seeing petients . I thought he supposed to be in surgery til 2:30pm It was ok not a big deal.

So i saw the Dr. and he told me i dont have enough fat to get a big butt.. Yes i expected that. Anyway The Dr. and all staffs were very nice.

July 5 ,2012 he told me i got 900 cc. i will post my pic soon. my honey used my phone to take pic and took only one pic . i dont think you can tell my butt size. tomorrow i will try again when he take my garment off

july 18,212
I just post after 11 days post and 15 days post. I feel much better today. No pain anymore. I am very happy with my result so far and I'm hoping my butt not get down too much at the end. I like this size not too big and not too small.

I still like my result so far. I love to look at my body in miror every morning and feel so good about my body!!! LOVE IT!! Not try to make myself feel good i just really love it.
I think i chose right dortor. Back in DEC 2011 my husband and i went to Miami for consutation with 3 doctors; Salama, Mendieta and Micheal Salzhauer. The Salama fees $5899 , The Medieta fees $11000 and Salzhauer fees almost $10000.

I chose the Salama becuase good price and works,so in end of FEB 2012 i deposited 10% and supposed to have sugery July 5,2012.
Then in May 2012 i felt i liked the Mendieta body contouring better and i really not wanted big butt. Just want rounder butt .. I told my husband i wanted to change dortoc to Mendieta and we would lose 10% deposited with /Salama. He told me just choose Doctor i wanted the most. Dont worry about the money. So we deposited $2000 with Medieta. I wanted both doctors work on me. yes would not happened that way.

The Mendieta had sepecial for summer $9850 so went...

The Mendieta had sepecial for summer $9850 so went down from $11000 to $9900 i dont know why i paid $50 more. but it was ok. not matther.
I was lucky that my husband had meeting in Miami in July for a week and he got free rooms for whole trip. My husband always travel and has lot of hotel points and Miles. Yes free air tickets and hotels. Bad thing is he stays in hotels 3 or 4 nights per week. Comes home only weekend.

I dont know if i stay with Salama, would i have same result. I love my body now and can't wait to show to all my friends at work. I would tell everyone at work i had it done.

july 8,2012 im 30days today and i didnt see much change or butt still look the same from a week ago. My doctor told me my waist will look smaller at the end of healing process. Still waiting for that to happen.

I love your little cute booty its the perfect size! sometimes I wish I would've switched and did more consults but it didn't go that way. We have a similar build and I got 900cc too but my but feels huge lol. Is your booty still the same size now?

Lucky for you you feel your booty huge. I had my BBL done by M in 2008. I wish I did more research. Now almost 5 tests later and over 11K lighter I am going for round#2 for more symmetry,projection and hips

Hi!! I have a question about cellulite. You mention you got more cellulite on your leg because you had lipo on the leg? How is that possible? I don't have any cellulite but this is what I'm scared about.

Also, we have similar stats. I'm the same height and my normal weight is always 110-112lbs. I am only getting 200cc on each side though, 900 is a lot!! And you look awesome!!!
