well a year ago i got a tt, im so happy with my results, as soon as i got it , i started noticing nice butts on girls , call me naived , i always thought they were just blessed, but i have friends recently that have gotten bbl and i just started thinking maybe i should get it done too lol. what really convice me when my friend told me to wear a garment that lifts your but out, so i decided to buy one and , omg i loved how it shaped me and made my butt and body looked,but that joy only lasted 3 hours cause ,when i got home it was time to get it off and i started feeling like , i dont want to wear a faja forever lol . i like my body but the fajas made me look real hot. btw the faja im wear is xs its a colombian faja, btwim colombian too and it just shapes me up nicely , ill make sure i post a pic with the faja.

so finally i decided is time to get a bbl, but i looked around in la and the more areas you get lipo the more price goes up, i want to add my arms and inner thighs and i just want to get this done one time and be happy.. the doctors here in la i dont think they are aggresive , so im going with salama in miami, im super excited, i already send pics via email and he said im a perfect candidate , to gain 5 to 10 pounds and he can get 900 ccs minumum per cheek, so my surgery date is jan 14 2013 yey !

its crazy, i lost 40 pounds afteri had my son hes 3 now, and i love working out, i eat healthy and to think how hard i worked to loosed weight and now gotta gain 10 back , so crazy lol. so ive been just eating what i want, im a zumba instructor so this will be intrusting , eating to gain and giving my zumba class to do what i love as a hobby..

10 WEEKS away from my surgery date !

Hello ladies well I'm realizing this is really gonna happen ,I got an email from Nicole from DR SAlamas office , i need to go see a physician and get clearance 30 days before surgery date and start taking iron pills as well , So it's becoming more real to me , I also will be just buying all my healing meds, ima take with me to Miami arnica tea and I will be mixing it with sabila , ima get the sabila liquid from Herbalife I will make a gallon and put it in refrigerator , and drink as many cups I can a day as for me I only will take it for no more than 10 days , my mom says it's really strong the arnica so u stop for a week and then start again it will heal the inside , I did it when I got my tummy tuck and I had a good recovery ! My fiancé is the best , he's the one that is paying for my bbl and all my expenses , it's funny cause he called nancy and told her to don't send me any invoices as far as payments to email everything to him or call him , whatever she needs from him , he don't want me worrying lol so I was telling my fiancé that the only downfall of being far is that I won't have my mom or someone close helping me , he said not to worry , he's gonna call nancy and ask her about any nurses that will come and help me for the first couple days ! Omg hes the sweetest thinking of all these details and just taking over lmao , so so far I'm excited of knowing ima have some help but it's not the same like a person u know ! Okay ladies gotta go came with my son to IHOP , have a blessed Sunday !

LYMPHATIC MASSAGES $ 40 A SESSION 1/2 HOUR

Hello Ladies, well i spoke to a massage therapist, ive gotten massages and wraps with her in the past, shes really good , well she also does lymphatic massages.
Shes very nice when i went the first time for a massage she charged 100 bucks, she did a hour massage for tonification, she put me in the elecktro machine for cellulite , i have some cellulite on the back of my thigh , so she worked that area, after that she wrapped me up, and did a wrap, and 20 minutes in the sauna, while drinking pineapple juice, its a great experience,the whole process was 2 hours.
so i called a couple days ago and told her about my bbl surgery coming up and she said to give her a call as soon as i get back,so since the massages are 30 mins, ima get done one every day, or even tell her to do the hour if i need it, shell know and im sure shell be reasonable with the xtra charge , especially if ima go to her the whole week , im sure we can work something out also she use to work for a surgeon, and did the patients drainage , so im confident about getting ,my massages with her, well so far im just getting ready for holidays, ima go get a luggage next week, so thats all for now!

I want 13OO ccs ..email nancy an Dr ..Salamas

hello ladies, this is the cons of having your sugery out of town. theres nothing like going in for a physical consultation and having the dr looking at your body and just giving the opinion on what u can expect, thats where im at today , i wanna make sure im at the right page so i emailed nancy and told her that i gained 10 pounds im at 160 im 5 4 1/2 and i want 1300 ccs in each cheek, im adding arm/pitt inner thight and i was thinking maybe lipo in the back under the butt crease , as for me i have some excesive fat and i always wanted it out, if he would recommend it i would totally add that area too. but i do not want to take from having better results in my waist due to the limit of the 4 liters he can lipo out, so in that case then NO lol its not a big deal anyway . anyhow i asked her to please ask him and ill be waiting for a respond, lets see what he says !..

Well I'm glad I feel more at peace with a date now so let's hope everything goes as plan this time .

Surprise Surprise SMH!

Hello dolls, I called Jessica today at Vanity and asked her if she can ask Dr G to take a look at my pics and if he recommends if I should loose weight or not, cause I gained 15 smh, I was only suppose to gain 10 , so she asked me to hold on cause she was gonna ask the nurse, so I did, while I hold on she looked at my pics I had sent her over the weekend , and asked me if I had a tummy tuck, which I did 2 years ago, so she put me on hold again, I waited... well she got back on the phone and said she was looking at my pics with 2 other nurses and they recommend me getting my sx with Dr Fisher, cause hes more experience with girls with my bodytype and flaws, and with tummy tucks in the past and all that I got lipo bearly 2 years ago , I really don't understand , I was speechless, she told me hes a great surgeon and if I ever heard of him, I told her no , I don't know who he is, and she said hes real famous, and hes all over realself shes just suggesting him but I can stick to Dr ghurani , I told her yes , I want to stick withDr G him and I have a lot of great surgeons here in Beverly hills and im only flying down cause I want Dr ghurani and im not gonna look into any other surgeon cause this is my second switch and im done doing all that and she said okay that's fine... that she suggest me loosing 5 pounds and will show DR G my pics and see what he recommends.. GREAT! , so I wont even book my flight till im 2 weeks away from my sx date.. honestly, im not gonna force any situation, what needs to happen will happen, Why did I postponed.. my first choice was dr salama, and honesatly if these peeps at vanity are tryiung to play me, ima be patient and wait on elite to call me for a date, everything is paid overthere with them, I was thinking of just getting my money back so I can finish paying off here at vanity but ima just leave my options open, well I rather wait and be happy instead of wondering what if ? well I hope I don't get in trouble for sharing my experience with you dolls.. !1
