At6er 2 years of thinking about BBL, i finally set a date with Dr Mendietta, now I realize some women felt they didn't get enough size and projection. Everybody seems to be going to Salama., not many with Mendietta.Did I miss something? Did I make the wrong choice?. I am not looking for a huge increase in size. I am more concerned about shape, although of course want to see inproviment in all aspects including the lipo. Please tell me what you think..I still have time to change my mind...I am 5'2 134 lbs looking to add some shape or roundness to my butt.

17 post op with Dr Mendietta. After a challenging 1 week recovery alone eating take out in a hotel room (had hired help for 3 days) which included an infected open blister on leg making my right leg twice the size of my left (had to have venous duplex to r/o DVT) getting a lot of stares and flight back home I can say things are falling into place and I am happy with my results so far. I am as happy with my lipoed waist and back as I am with grafted bootie and hips ,maybe the hips should get a tad smaller...hehe will try to get a better straight back shot. So far think i lost 1 to 1.5 around bootie. couldnt wear a garment for first week because of infection. Dr M doesn't hand holding but is very sharp and skilled. I couldn't have done this without the tips and heads up I got from the reviews as I got very little advice or tips from the office. Happy healing! ps my flight back was packed but I had 2 empty seats next to me so I could lie down.I truly believe that was a miracle!

Hello. Thanks for sharing your experience and pictures with all of us. I am scheduled with Dr. Mendieta in May and I was wondering if you are satisfied with the care that you received? Are you currently satisfied with your results? Have you had any massages and or did he recommend getting any? How soon after surgery did you start to feel okay? I am a bit nervous for my recovery as my children will be with me. (husband too) just hoping to be of some help with our kids in the days following surgery. Thanks in advance for your time!!!

Hi, thanks for writing, and congrats on scheduling your procedure! I think Dr M is talented, experienced and sharp. I am amazed at the contouring he gave me, including the fat to hips, my butt looks much better and bigger although not perfect, it could be slightly rounder when u look straight on. I went in with the idea that lipo alone would give me an improvement. So far I am satisfied, it seems i lost a litle over 1 inch since postop. Now i have to say Dr M is like a whirlwind, he comes and goes so fast u have to try hard to remember your questions. the girls and nurse are ok but i received no guidance re boards and foams.When I asked, I was always told that would come later. When I went to my first post op the nurse didn't realized the swelling on my left leg was due to an infected blister, but told me to purcharce another garment that reached the foot.(260,00) Had I known better, I would have insisted that Dr M see me on that day. On my next appointment with him he sent me to have a sonogram of the leg to rule out clots. My leg still didn't improve much. I showed the nurse a discharge from the leg blister she said was neosporin. It was only on the 3rd visit that I showed him the blister and he started antibiotics. So u have to be your own advocate there. But he knowns what he is doing. It will be challlenging with kids, but u have your husband to help, take then out a little so u can rest etc. You can watch a lot of tv with them. Are recovering at home or hotel? It is bettter if u have a 2 room condo. Let me know how it goes and good luck!

I really appreciate you taking the time to respond and answer all my questions. I am happy to hear that you are satisfied so far. I am sure as time passes and you continue to heal you will like your results that much more. I think you look great already! We will be staying in a condo that accommodates all of us which will allow me to have my own space to recover. I will keep you posted. Thanks again for all your helpful advice and information.

I did allot of research And decided on salama but you have to go with who you are comfortable with I like his results and price
  • Reply
Alot ppl go with Salama for the price and how much he is viewed on this site. Idk much about Mendieta, I have only heard his prices were a little higher. Have you checked out any other doctors or are you sold on Mendieta? Azurin, Lagrasso and Salhauzer do great work also. Good luck on your journey.

Thank you for answering. I am kind of sold on Mendietta because of the pictures on the website, plus he seems to be a pioneer according his book with an eye to beauty rather than just size. At the same time I learned, at least in facial surgery, a Doctor has proven him self when we, the people start talking about their good outcomes. Also for what I see Salamas price are very close to Dr M's( I was quoted 9850). I noticed that many BBL doctors are the it doctors for while than fade.I remember reading a lot about cabral, and others on MMH the they are replaced. Now i hear a lot on campos, ilya,salama and jimmerson.
