Dr. Salama Doesn't Do Hips??? - New Orleans, LA

Super new to the site and hoping you beautiful...

Super new to the site and hoping you beautiful ladies can help. I'm a 27 yr old single mother and nursing student on a budget. I initially was interested in Dr. J but his prices are way out of my league, (5-10, 000) also I notice that he gives "shelves" and I'm looking for more of the slope heart shaped backside. I came across Dr. Salama and his prices fit my pockets. Also i noticed he's very aggressive with lipo and bra rolls which I LOVE being that I need intense help in that department! Then reading on someone wrote that he doesn't do hips. If this is true then he is most def not the doctor for me. I have NO hips so I need a doctor who knows how to give me that coke bottle shape. Ladies I'm at a complete loss and don't know what to do. Is there any goid doctors that are reasonably priced, good with hips, and give the sloped heart shape instead of the "shelf"?....PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

Need a Duran Surgery Buddy for Dec. 2014

Hi ladies!!!!!! So on my last post, I was leaning towards Salama but I'm totally sold on the gorgeous Duran. I emailed and called her for months with no answer. I got to the point where I was just like fuck it. I understood that she was busy but damn! Then I ran across Bella Vita. I was convinced if anyone could get in touch with Duran, Bella Vita could. So I paid the 150.00 and got a quote from Duran within a week!!!! 3800 for lipo of my full back, flanks, stomach, arms, and armpits, and 4800 if I wanted to add a tummy tuck. I have to send a 250 deposit to secure a date. I'm going either late December or early January but I need a buddy. I don't want to go through it along. So if any of you ladies are going in Dec or Jan inbox me.
Dra. Duran

Hi, I called Friday and spoke to her Secretary and she advised me emails are full and Dr. Is Busy due tax season. She assured me that my name is on for 12/23/14 and come in 12/22/14 for lab work etc. I advised her I've been sending emails for a month and no response ;( She stated Dr. Duran likes to answer her own emails and due to being busy is very very behind. Soo, she mentioned to wait until she emails deposit info untll then plan on being there on 12/23/14. I told her meantime I will be applying for a new passport and starting look for airline flights. I told her if I don't hear from her by July then I will call her again lol.. She said not a problem ;) I'm going start preparing for my trip :) FYI: She also mentioned 12/23/14 wil be her last Surgury date for 2014 but has openings if I wanted to bring a friend for Surgury too.

Hey girl, You should look into Dr. Yily , Duran & Baez in D.R. ... They give amazing results & they're price is much less expensive than here in the U.S. .. If you have any questions , feel free to ask .

Thanx NJexciteddd ...I was actually thinking about Duran...its a lot cheaper and more I'm aldo saving to take my lil man to Disneyworld so that works for my pockets.. I looked in Yily but so many girls reviewed how bad her attitude was...I haven't looked up Baez at all...but I'm thinking DR is where ill be going.

Duran is a bit more expensive than Yily & I've heard bad stuff about her attitude as well but something keeps telling me to go with Yily . I like Durans work too but I don't know what it is about Yily . It's crazy , but anywho , I was going to Yily in August but I'm taking my Lil guys to Disney & I'm putting off my surgery til next year . So I guess great minds think alike ,lol. When are u trying to go to D.R?
