@seriously.....MMLL has 1000 each cheek brings her total 2000 cc's..she already had hips and some degree of fattiness on her butt...YAY has a small frame but if you see her before pics you can the difference.... what I am trying to say is.....look at my pics...I had barely any hips.......and def not any butt at all I looked like sponge bob...............for my frame.....and butt shape...I should have gotten the max..........and requested the shelf.......it would have brought my butt up highier,,,,on the operating table I reminded them I did not want a ghetto butt out of fear...............but learning what has happened to my butt.............I regret not getting the max....but I have shape.....but lost projection

Hello, girl, I hope you are doing well. I want to go to Dr Gabay bc he is closer but from the looks of you lost volume I really thinking abaout Dr Salama again. I dont know if it was the Drs skill, or just the risk of reabsorption but if I pay my money i still want a butt. What did he say about it?
  • Reply
@destiny81 what can he say? BBL is fat transfer from one part of the body to the next....if the body absorbs it...he can't do anything about it..............te person has the option of round two.....I am not going to do that...I did not ask for the max either which is 1000 cc's each check i was scared i was going to have a ghetto botty...i got 780 each cheek.

@kateH your welcome I wanted to show the women that I lost volume...but i have shape
  • Reply

@social butterfly2478 Yes shape is #1.  I definitely see those hips! :)

  • Reply
@kateh....actually ....projection is what everyone wants...lol
  • Reply

@social butterfly2478... HAHAHAHA omg I cracked up with your comment.  But... when you are built like a boy with no hips.. it would definitely be nice to have some curves. :/

so do u have to pay what he quoted all at once??
  • Reply
@pancakes215.....i had to put 400 down to secure the date the balance is due the day before surgery.......if you are square and very flat and wide........ask for a shelf...and the max your butt can take...because you will be heart broken...i will post a 3 month pic...i have lost most of my volume and i received 780 cc each cheek

yea i seen u girls talkin bout that..but im kinda a heavy set gal i recently lost about 30lbs but i have about 40 more to lose but my whole thing are my hips...i have no shape whats so ever lol n my butt as of now is very non existent... but from what i read dr. gabay goes by weight right?? so what do u reccomend as a good starting weight?? my goal is like 185 im really starting from scratch...and thank u for responding and sharing ur experience!!
  • Reply
jus saw ur pic n i think u look great!! but some girls talk about goin for a second round are u considering that??
  • Reply
Nope not spending another dime on this aZZ....I will be this way for now on...lol
  • Reply
The picture for today....I weigh 240......you don't need to lose to much weight if you are getting a BBL...that is fat transfer.......you need it......I look about 180 now..he lipo sucked the hell out of my stomach and back ..and my legs and knees were done..as well as my arms...
  • Reply
so when he lipos it tightens every thing?? cuz im afraid once he sucks the fat im gonna be left with alot of loose skin...sorry im not sure how lipo works

I had a tummy tuck in Dominican Republic from Dr. mendez when i was 275...he did a great job.....and Dr. Gabay touched it up and it looks great.....my body is curving...but my azz is wearing away........so again I say....ask for the max ...he can put in your butt........wear your cut out but garment that lifts the butt...as often as possible and if if you can ...get it done....in the winter......that would be better to wear the garments......
  • Reply
oh ok thanks for the tips/advice im takin it all in :).... another question tho (sorry) do u work out?? do u think that would affect ya results?? bcuz i want to try to maintain this healthy lifestyle
  • Reply
I don't really work out....my job requires me to be active enough.....I have changed the way I eat....I may have a soda once or twice a month...bread is limited and pasta....I was a carb junkie.....smoothies< muscle milk which is not necessarily for muscle build up ...but it is a very good protein powder...I sprinkle omgea 3 grounds on everything because it has no taste.....but i keeps the bowels open so be careful with greasy food ...lol although I weight 240...I wear a size 13/14 pants. and my breast size is 47 1/12 ddd to 36 ddd after surgery...my shoes are a little too big since my legs and knees were lipoed............I am please with the lipo..........BUT NO SECOND ROUND ON BBL FOR ME
