I wanna start by saying how happy I am to find RealSelf.com . I've looked at the page a couple of times but never really read anything b/c I wasnt really serious about getting work done until now. (Sorry, that was a ridiculous run on sentence tehe) I didn't know I needed SO much for a Brazilian Butt Lift. I was literally gonna fly to Miami, find a surgeon, have the BBL and fly home. :-\ I've only been to the hospital once. I gave birth to my twins, naturally, was back home before the week was out. Im pretty naive to recovery time. Im soooo excited to start following others and learning more about what i may need for my procedure.
If anyone has any advice or want to suggest a Dr PLEASE do so :-D
Initial Contact with Vanity
On yesterday i received a called from Vanity. I ONLY wanted a quote. The lady I spoke to was really aggressive. (No bueno) As a former salesperson myself I understand deadlines/ quotas/etc but the lady was so aggressive she made me not want to go to Vanity :-\ She quoted me, Dr Hasan Abdomen and Flanks for my BBL , at $3800. I then questioned "Well what's the regular price?" She answered $4000. I then said "So im only saving the 200$ I assume I have to put down today" She let me know i was correct. Smh I DO NOT like being pressured. Even after i told her id just started the BBL journey and havent done enough research she wanted me pick a doctor, run my credit to see if i qualify for financing ,choose a recovery house and pick a date all just to save a funky $200 :-\
So ive decided to not rush to do my BBL. I might actually wait a couple of years instead of 90days :'( B/C I want to have one more child I believe I'll wait on the procedure. Im now looking into LaserLipo because this stomach has to go NOW! And hey... its only $200 on Groupon :-) I'm really hoping that it works as a temporary fix until AFTER im done having kids.
I dont wanna wait!!!
Getting quotes from different doctors. If I get one under 3500$ I'll reconsider waiting because I REALLY wanna get it done :-D :-D
RealSelf Stalk Mode
I feel like I spend HOURS stalking results on RealSelf.com!!! I want my BBL sooooo bad. I wish I could just fly to the DR throw my money at Durans assistant then hop on the operating table LMFAO. I sent her an email like 4hrs ago and I'm like ugh CMon send me a quote PLEASE!!! Smdh Has anyone received a quote from Duran? I want a BBL &TT, Lipo from my Abdomen and Flanks (back)? I just wanna know how much money I need to raise in 1month lmao
Hola Dr Baez!!!
Beaz? Baez? I always spell it wrong and real self always corrects me lol. So I received my quote from the lovely doctor and for only $3700 I will have liposuction i from my abdominal full Back & inner thighs a BBL AND a full tummy tuck. Lipo TT and BBL for under 4G?? my only fear is that it is too good to be true. I haven't seen many pictures of the ladies who leave her office I looked at her website and I'm pleased so I'm kind of going off of what she displays which is scary. but I'm like the other doctors in the Dominican Republic Dr Baez responds to ALL of my questions with which puts me at ease and you can tell by the reviews that she genuinely cares about her patients and that's what I'll need. Guess i better put a rush on my passport :-D
Looking for Buddy

Dollar Tree Supply Haul
Good Morning Dolls and Beauties! I went to the Dollar Tree today and noticed that there are a lot of things that I need for the surgery that I could purchase for only $1. Pssshhhh I'm trying to save ALL the money I can!! I bought an eye mask, gauze pads (for drain site), anti bacterial bandages, tylenol and Aleve, Tums (antacid), milk of magnesia (constipation), Dial (antibacterial soap) ,hydroperoxide and triple antibiotic ointment (Bacitracin). I also got a bottle of Womens Essential Vitamins which has Vitamin D, B1, B2,B3, B6, B12,Iron and Folic Acid. All this for less than 12bucks! I do realize that some things we dont want to be too cheap about but I felt like these things its ok to not get a name brand. After I cross check my list I'll probably go back and get other items like maxi pads, supplies to make foam board etc. I easily saved over 40$ today by going there :-D #WINNING
Updated Before Pics/ Weight Gain
Even tho i dont want a "big stupid" booty Im still afaid i wont have enough fat to survive the procedure. (Im weird) I was told by a different doctor that i could gain like 10lbs so I've been eating like a pig! In my head its cool b/c in less tgan a month it will be sucked out anyway right? Smdh. Anywho is anyway else SUPER JEALOUS when they see other girls in route to their surgery?? "Why does she get to go first? THAT SHOULD BE ME!!" Lmao. I sound like my 5 year olds. I need to chill!
Im thinking about starting an IG acct for my other Baez Barbies to follow my progress. It'll be private of course... What do yall think?
"You're Doing WHAT?!?!"
I feel like EVERYONE is trying to talk me out of the surgery! This is exactly why I wanted to keep it to myself.... ugh trying remain positive
I KNOW theres a reason for everything.
Well.... ONCE AGAIN my s/x date has changed :'( not sure of the exact date yet but...yea.... Im determined to have it done before my birthday on 11/24 of this year. My plan was to celebrate my 25th with my girls in Dallas but that may not happen either because I WILL have this surgery BEFORE I turn 25 :-D
No New Booty :-\
