Dr. Mendieta's Next Challenge: MY BODY Sx`date 09/11/2012 - Miami, FL

Hello; Thank you before hand for your company here...

Hello; Thank you before hand for your company here.
I am 50 yrs old, 5'4" 126 lb. I have no butt, no hips, a belly, and as if that were not enough, a high waist.lol. (will post before pics soon) On top of all that I have no money! but I want this surgery so badly that I have managed to put together 1/2 of the cost of the surgery and booked it for September 11th. With God's help I will complete the other half.


Though more costly, I chose Dr. Mendieta because my body is more of a challenge and he is a worldly acclaimed body contourist and gluteal sculptor who operates with a battery of excellent professionals in state -of -the- art facilities. I thought if anyone could fix this body it would be him. Dr. Mendieta is not recommending a tummy tuck at this point, he said the loose skin should, to a good degree, firm back up pretty good. I am ok with having a little lose skin and no tummy tuck.


I have a beautiful 17 yr old daughter, she's my world. She has mixed feelings about the surgery and I have been with the love of my life for almost five years now. He supports me in this but tells me every day that he loves me just the way I am and I don't have to do this to please him. I know this is for me. Hopefully he will enjoy it too! I look forward almost obsessively to nice fitting clothes, a feminine figure and not being embarrased about my body even though I am not young anymore.
I am just now starting to research the garment and supplements and anything else I need. Any suggestions on how to save $ are welcome.
I wish everyone here good luck in their surgery endeavors.
Thank you!

Sending an S.O.S!!! I am 27 days away from my scheduled BBL w/ Dr. MENDIETA (yay!) Due to my finances,I have not been able to buy my garment or vitamedica kit. I am looking to buy preowned garments stage 1 size medium and stage 2 size small, and any leftover supplements you may have that I can purchase would be greatly appreciated. Thank so much!

My results are amazing. Dr Mendieta gave me a beautiful body we spent quite some time together deciding on shape, etc. He's a sweet, cool guy talented like no one else. My recoup has been harder than I ever thought but God will bless me with relief as he helps me heal. My surgery was tuesday 9/11 and sunday i had some cramping on my hands and forearms I called the answering svce and Dr Mendieta immediately returned my call. I have my next appt tuesday when they will remove drainsl, More later.
