I can’t believe this site exist…….. I...
Okay, I didn’t realize I had gained so much weight and my 5 feet frame was hovering towards 174 pounds. When I had to forward pictures to the doctor for a Skype Consultation I was mortified, but was resigned to losing weight and pushing back the original surgery date I was anticipating, which was going to be for Sept 2013. However, with this excessive weight, the doctor I finally chose advised me to lose 20-25 pounds if I wanted to achieve the maximum results. If a sister is going to pay $9,000 for a magical transformation, then she wants maximum results, thus starting my dieting and exercising journey today and I will update the pics as I lose the weight.
After ready probably 1500 reviews I found my top three doctors, which was Dr. Salzhauer in Miami, Dr. Moises, Salama in Miami and Dr. Yily who sounded like the waist snatcher and the key to my success. Also her prices were 50% less then the USA doctor’s. However, the doctor I chose was chosen firstly, because I loved 100% of the BBL/LIPO compared to Dr. Salzhauer I loved 85% and Dr. Yily I loved 100% and she snatched the fat out and again even if I threw in a Breast Lift, she was still much much cheaper then the USA doctors. However, it scared me to go to another country to have this type of surgery and the doctor’s outside of the USA didn’t seem to be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Also I read a review about someone paying doctor $2,500 and they were advised the money wasn’t received and I am sorry I am not living that type of life that if someone told me this it would be okay. So, after review of my pre op pic’s and sending 5 of my wish pic’s I was told that getting my first choice would not be an issue, but the doctor who was the only doctor that advised me of this, but he wants me to lose 20-25 pounds (I agree 110%)……DRUM ROLE PLEASE…LOL The Doctor I chose was DR. MOISES SALAMA in Miami at ELITE PLASTIC SURGERY, which I will have to travel to since I don’t live there. However, a major deciding factor was also Nancy Duque a patient coordinator at the Elite Plastic Surgery. She is professional, but the long lost friend that you can’t believe your luck to have. Nancy was truly my cheerleader and she is an angel in disguise. I am looking forward to continued correspondence with her and meeting her. She is an asset to the office and was the real determining factor of why I chose Elite and Dr. Salama. She is a people person and made me feel not like a customer, client, piece of meat or a dollar sign, but made me feel like an old friend!
Currently my surgery date is April 13, but I am trying to get something’s in order so I can have the surgery before then, but if not……date is fine therefore, I can have my body on display for the 2014 summer….lol
Again thank you Real Self Community wand I am excited about my journey and look forward to reporting back!

August 22, 2013, was the first fat girl pics on the site and today is the update Oct 18, 2013....still a fat girl when I look in the mirror, but I do see the slimming down.
Losing weight is an issue considering my weight gain didn't come from food, but nonetheless, we all still have to lose it the same way, no matter how we put it on. I missed the gym with consistency last week and literally feel like I have gained at least 20 pounds...lol Ok ok ok, I am exaggerating, but this week I feel better then I did last week. The last time I weighed in, I was about 160 pounds, but have not been on a scale in 2 months.
It's late, but just wanted to post the progress! Nighty nighty....or better yet Good Morning since is 3:53 am
Little by little
It's been a minute....short update
I am still eating healthy and at some point will update the pics, because I have lost 25 pounds and don't look so bad now....lol
A major deciding factor chosing Elite Plastic Surgery and Dr. Salama was my positive interaction with Nancy Duque a patient coordinator at the Elite Plastic Surgery. She is professional, but the long lost friend that you can’t believe your luck to have. Nancy was truly my cheerleader and she is an angel in disguise. I am looking forward to continued correspondence with her and meeting her. She is an asset to the office and was the real determining factor of why I chose Elite and Dr. Salama. She is a people person and made me feel not like a customer, client, piece of meat or a dollar sign, but made me feel like an old friend!
