over all ...im just happpy I did this

Let me just get to the point. I really wanted to...

let me just get to the point. I really wanted to get the surgery for a while now. I have 3 kids all by cesarean section so you must understand partially why I've been yearning to do this for myself. I've always had a pretty nice shape before the children and love to get there again. After finding real self I I was so happy and addicted to this site. My cousin chose Dr Pelayoand so did II after seeing her results. After deciding to book the date of my surgery I have learned that he was on quote unquote vacation. Nevertheless they decided to schedule me with Dr Salas. I didn't see many people with his work.but what I saw on the real self was great and after doing my research I realized that he had a solid background in cosmetic surgery. I would be leaving for Miami in 5 days and it is now getting really real.I have received my instructions um the clinic and I've been slowly packing all my supplies and clothing.I must say things to everyone on this site. There is a wealth of information here and I'm grateful that people share with they experience.stay tuned for pictures once I learn how to do it I will keep everyone up to date! smooches!!!

Meeting With Salas in the morning!!! whooo hooo ***preop pics***

Ok ladies just uploaded preop.. look at your own risk lol

finally in Miami!!!! yippeeee

Ok girls flight was fab. We actually arrived 20 min early. As soon as I got out of the airport, was shuttled to the hotel dropped my bags and came to vanity. Inside is clean and pretty. I paid my balance filled out my pprwork. They told me that dr salas wason his was to the clinic to see me. Oh boy. The wait continues. Will keep u all post.

Im a sexi Salas barb!!!!

Hey girlies. I made it. Thanks for your prayers. Went really smooooooth. We had conversation at first to go over what he thou hgt was goos for me. He also lipo 4 liter of fat (which btw is Miami's legal limit). Not too sure how much was injected. I didnt bring a wish pic because I know everyone body shape is different and my own preference was to allow him to make me sexi. In other words I let him work. I did tell him the areas that bothered me the most and he addresses them. He is a super cool doc. I was relaxed with him. He marked me up and expkained every moment of it. He took a series of pics then the anesthesia guy came gave me some fluids then something to help me relax sorta like xanax or ativan. Then the propafol. Next thing I woke up. dr said it went well. I gave him a thumbs up then fell asleep again. An hour later I got up to use the restroom and went back to sleep til my ride came.I did not experience a single episode of nausea for the first time in my life. Because I voiced my concern I recieved anti nausea meds via IV pre and post general anesthesia . My experience today went well and I thank you all today for ur prayers!

I religiously wear my my garment and abd board. Its so amazing to look at myselfin the mirror. Im not too hung up on measurements but what I do know is that my waist right after surg was 32in now its 30. Booty measured 45 1/2 in now its 45. Im loving my new shape guys!!!!! To think it only gets better!

You look amazing! Congratulations on hitting the 6-week mark and being able to sit, I can't wait until I get there (I'll be 4 weeks post tomorrow). I want to buy the vedette 136 but I'm not sure whether to get a small or medium, my waist keeps shrinking everyday, my measurements are really close to yours when yuo got your first one, what size did you first get?
  • Reply
Thanks hunni. My first vidette 136 was a size 36 which I believe equate to a size medium and now I have a 32 which is an extra small
  • Reply
Nice! I hope to get into an extra small one day :-) Ok, I think I'll get a medium, I'm getting a small vedette corsette, so I guess I can just wear the corsette on top for extra compression. Thanks so much for the quick response.

let me know what you think about the vedett corset. I have this squeem in a small and I really don't like it it really hurts my skin I just think it's because of the sensitivity. Maybe I'll just get the vidette. let me know how it works for you;-)

It's supposed to arrive tomorrow, I will try it on as soon as I get it and I'll report back.

awesome don't forget me :-D

Hello, I wanted to let you know that I got the Vedette corset and I'm not a big fan of it. It gives you good compression, but it doesn't shape you nicely, I like my squeem-like vest A LOT more. I've been doing a lot of research in waist training, check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5P4hU0wMNI, I'm going to get this corset instead, I think it's better than the vedette corsets and the squeem. It's only $79 at this site http://www.orchardcorset.com/corsets/steel-boned-longline-underbust-corset-in-satin-cs-426/ so it's not much more expensive than vedette or squeem. Have you tried wearing the squeem with a cami under?
