My 25th Birthday Present to ME!!:-D

I wanna start by saying how happy I am to find...

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
Welcome! There are some great surgeons in Miami so I'm sure you'll find a great fit for your needs. Hopefully your recovery will be as speedy as child birth was for you. Good luck!

Me currently :-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 :-\

Wish Pics

Oh yea, you asked about choosing a recovery house well I spoke to one the lovely ladies at Spectrum Aesthetics this week and was told that the recovery house is $500 for 4 nights and 5 day 2 meals a day with snacks in between any additional day is $100. You might want to call them and confirm this since this info. was given to me because of their ongoing promotion they have this month. =)

Hey girl, I saw that you are inquiring about a BBL well I am a future patient of Dr. Mel Ortega. His prices are so affordable and his before and after pics are awesome. He has plenty of happy satisfied patients. He is at spectrum aesthetics in Miami. I have been researching day and night looking for the best doctor with affordable prices and Dr. Ortega is the doctor I would recommend. He has a promotion going on. $4,500 for a BBL that includes everything with no hidden cost;) check him out. Good luck on your journey;)

And that's why im going to Ortega

blah :-\

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.

Little Less Stomach Little More Bootay

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
As I start getting everything together (supplies etc) I will post them so that you'll have an idea of what is needed. Omg u have twins, amazing! I want twins so bad. Don't have kids yet but I hope my first will b twins

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

So im now ACTIVELY looking a buddy! Originally my ma was going to come with me BUT its starting to look like that wont happen :'( so in an effort to save money i need to find a buddy. I'm not dedicated to any particular recovery house and I'm open to sharing a hotel room or a condo. Ive been looking on AirBNB.com and i see a lot of great deals there. Anyone interested lettme know. The more the merrier
Thanks for sharing, I will be following your journey. Keeping you in prayer. .

I felt like crying!!!

So my boss is not letting me get any more OT for a while soooo my surgery will be delayed! I feel like dramatically throwing myself on a rock and cry my eyes out lol. Now i have to wait maybe a month longer to get my SX. I wanted to be healed by my birthday still keeping my fingers crossed that i will be :-D
Dag! Even though you may feel frustrated with this happening, remember that things happen for a reason. Maybe it wasnt meant for u to have sx at that time.

WHAT????????!!! I will pray it happens for you Doll :) Stay Hopeful&have faith.

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?
Ur sx date changed?

Ugh yes! Its now at the end of the month

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
Your absolutely right everything does happen for a reason stay positive and you will be tweaking, shaking or dropping it like it's hot on ur bday
