I have been STALKING this site every since I decided to have the BBL. It has been a long 8 months but I have finally built enough courage to "just do it". I am 31yo 5'1 146lb, although I don't weight as much...I have it all in the WRONG places! lol. I am scheduled the first week of Nov. with Dr P and I am excited and nervous at the same time. I see A LOT of people on here for Dr. Salma in Miami but I called them and they are booked until July 2013...yeah I'll pass on that one. I see good results from his work but I don't want to await a date so far out I may not see...that's NUTS (IMHO). I can't plan today what I will be doing next month let alone 10 months from now! Any who, I spoke with Dr. P and he is the most soft spoken humble Dr. I have ever met! He went into great detail on what he was going to do, how he was going to do it, and asked if I had any questions for him & my expectations...WOW. This was all over the phone during an iConsult, but I felt like he was right there. He altered my photos while I was on the phone, showed me what he was going to do, and if that was along the lines of what I am looking for. I am doing the BBL special he has for 8k to include a round trip tix up to $500! I am local so I have a $500 discount so for about 8,5k I am getting my flanks, abs, upper & lower back, thighs, and arms done in addition to a BBL ($500 per additional site for lipo). I think my only fear is not getting enough fat injected. I have seen 2 really good post from 2 of Dr. P's patients, and they both are going back for something, weather it be a touch-up or more lipo. I didn't get from their post that it was from something he did, but more as something they wanted (so that is a plus in my book). I don't want a bubble butt or a Nikki Manij (sp), but I want it to be there with NO DO OVERS lol, this procedure seems like a pain in the butt (pun intended) to recover from, so doing it twice isn't something I want to experience.
Are there any ladies out there with any experience they would like to share? Or maybe a list of do's and don't? I already have my meds, and ordered some items that have been cleared by the nurse from Make me heal...any advice or pointers?
I'll add pics later.
Thanks for reading!
Day 12 Post Op!!! New Pics! & measurements!! NO CC's to post.
Hi All! I have been STALKING this site every...
So just as I was thinking all was going to plan......
Okay so I got a new date today!!! NEXT WEEK!!!!...
OMG! okay...so I am 4 days out and I am SOOOOO...
Does anyone have a list of things they wish they had after surgery or things they took and needed?
Okay, so this whole experience wasn't as glamorous...
Word of advice to all the ladies waiting there turn....SLOW DOWN. It's exciting, but a real humbling experience. You don't read to much about the blood, pee, and other body fluids all mixed up on ur skin. So just make sure you ready for that because that comes WAY before the big booty. :)
So, I went to the dr today....got a new garment...
So I had the sx on Friday, my right drain came out...
Okay so hopefully I can make the drive from central Fl to Mia tomorrow or Friday to get the one drain removed, but does anyone remember if the suck began to "hurt" at the end, when there were little to no fluids coming out?
My back drain isn't oozing a lot fluid at all anymore so I'm hoping she will take those out also. I just don't feel like driving/riding to Mia for 3 weekends straight in pain.
WTH does the iPhone turn "so" into "do" in the middle of a conversation?
Got mine today. Prolly won't wear it for a while. I thought I ordered med- I got a small.
Swelling gel...BEST thing ever. The only part I hate is that I knew immediately when it wore off. Everything got stiff and ached...again.
Again I am day 5 and still on the fence. I don't like high booties. So until this joker goes down and softens up I will still be unsure. I love the curves (my main goal) but the booty is hard high &...weird looking. :)
Man O man!!!! I got all that nasty fluid out of my...
Hi! I know it's been a minute and I said a...
I know it's been a minute and I said a while back I would post pics BUT....I had a seroma so it effected my healing, and I just haven't felt like it. Tomorrow is the last day of drains for me! This back one has been a beast and it's still draining A LOT! it's all clear fluid, but I am not as swollen as I was before....and that's half the battle.
In the pictures posted, I still have on the board, the 1.5in foam, a shaper, and a SMALL waist clincher (squeem) I still have a little fluid, and my results aren't as tight as most due to the time (10 days) it took me to get drained, so I have to play catch up. Some of the pics were taken last week at day 7 when I still have the seroma it's on the left side...that's why it still looks fat in that area. I will update with new pics next week to give it a chance to go down to actually SEE a difference.
34 bust, 26 waist (measured at the dip above bellybutton), 43 hips...NUTS SN: I really hate that I sleep on my side...my hips are not as ROUND as I wanted them to be...but I have to sleep..and even tho they tell you it's okay to lay on your sides...it really alters the results. :( esp if you got work done there.
I did a lot of research and it came down to Dr. Pazmino, Dr. Mendinta, or Dr. Salma. In the end Dr. P won!
