For the past 18 months i've been researching and stalking this site. Most of you ladies posts were informative and helpful. I espically appreciated the ladies who didn't sugar coat their experience. I finally decided on three surgeons. February 3 2012 was my first consultation. Dr Pakeman. He was very information in this area although he was liscence as an eye dr. I couldn't use him because his price eas a little high (9500 Im currently out on maternity leave). Feb 6 was my second consult with Dr Rosenfeld. He charged $5800 to lipo back stomach and flanks transfering the fat to my buttocks and hips. I was really satisfied with his before and after pics. This dr was also informative. I was even more excited because he had yrs doing and teaching this procedure. I contemplated using Dr Rosenfeld but after visiting the New York State Malpratice web site

I want to apologize for my previous post. My computer shut so i didnt get the chance to edit or spell check not to mention i didnt finish.
I wanted to use Dr Rosenfeld but after visiting the New York State malpratice site i decided not to use him because he had several cases that were settled or pending. I decided to use Dr Heller he was very informative answered all of my questions but more importantly he kept it real. I didnt know the fat could be stored for up to a yr.

Wednesday is my second consultation and im excited bacause at my first consult i didn't remember to ask the important questions. I also have to leave a deposit which is non refundable. I was a little apprehensive about that because i do have a young baby and anything is possible. Anyway ladies im too excited about this wish me luck and all advice is welcome.

Today was my second consult with Dr Heller and i was able to ask all the questions i forgot to ask at my previous consultation. I was told the garment was an extra $100. also in addition to my deposit i had to pay $250 for the proscessing fee. I got my perscriptions which i will fill asap. I didn't ask about the cc but he did mention that he pefer giving his patients the max of 400. he explained that giving too much cc will kill most of the cells and the less the better the cells will grow. (I will write this as a ?for the realself drs). Dr heller freezes some of the fat to use at a later date if i want to enhance my butt more. So excited.
I consider this procedure a life altering experience and any mishaps is not worth it. Its not like buying something from the store that can be returned. I'm scheduled for May 11.

Ok so i got my perscriptions and bought the rest of mh supplies. Ladies i know i didn't mention this before but i didn't tell my husband about the procedure. Im currently out on maternity leave and he would say im wasting money.

Ok the count down has began n im nervous not the procedure butt the pain after. Two wks to go n ill have my donk.
Your flat booty days are numbered!!! Lol! Putting positive thoughts and prayers into the universe for ya Natasha!! I see you have some question about garments. I researched a little bit and from what I can tell the fajas are best. Makemeheal.com has a good selection of garments, some even with the butt out which some ladies say is better for keeping volume. Try clicking around on some of the other reviews since yours isn't getting much traffic (mine isn't either) and a lot of questions you have could be answered just by reading updates and comments. All the best, and please don't forget to keep us updated!

Friday is my surgery n i still didnt tell my husband the whole truth. He would only tell me i look great n stop wasting money. For the past week all i can do is pray n wonder how difficult its going to be for me at home. I didnt mention this before butt i have a six month old son at home. How difficult will it be for me to take care of him. Im so nervous that i lied to my husband about this butt he wont understand.
Good Luck Natasha, it will all work out in the end and your husband will be happy when he sees your results.

I did my bbl yesterday and im not feeling much pain. I took some of the ladies advice on this site n so far so good. For example walking helps with the pain, lots of fluid im drinking lots of water but im also consuming gatorade the dr said drinking it will help me retain less water. Ladies im 186 pounds so i bought a large compression garment n it loose i have to get a medium as soon as Possible. I see a lot of difference of the flanks,back n a lit.tle in the abdomen. I only needed a little cc to lift the butt i didnt want a shelf or enormrous butt. I was concerned that i wpuldnt have much help with the baby butt everyone is helping out. My eldest son pick me up frm the facility because i didnt want my husband to know. Out on maternity leave n now im ready to go back. Big booty n new shape at work they will think its because of the pregnancy. Im happy i did it n pray i will have no regrets in the future.
Thanks n i hope he really understand.

Second day postop n its not as bad as some of the ladies say then again everyone tolerate pain differently. I couldnt find any funnel to buy so im using a poland spring bottle n its perfect. I feel very sore n have too sleep on my tummy. I havent sat down yet n i dont plan to until my two wks. Cant wait to c my results. My back n flanks r gone butt my stomach is swollen. Happy mothers day.
Finally another person on this site who went with Dr. Heller! I hope you will be pleased with your results. I had 300 ccs each cheek which I was a little disappointed but then I went back 6 weeks later and he shot some more in. He was so nice to me and his staff was really fantastic. Isn't it interesting he is so insistent that he will not inject larger amounts as most of the other docs seem to...he was convincing and I have not lost any volume so far, that was Jan 3 had my bbl. I would like to hear what people say who got 600 or 800 or 1000 ccs if the volume stayed after 6 months or a year. As far as not telling your husband, hmmm....hard to hide the bruises! You just tell him how this is something you needed to do to feel better every day...you KNOW he's gonna like it! Nobody else EVER said a word to me about my new curves so I guess it wasn't too much but it sure made me happy! Good luck with the baby. I took care of my son's infant right after, but I didn't have to move too much cause he wasn't crawling. Heller's recovery is not a horror show of drains and swollen genitals and burning lipo sites so you hopefully have a mild recovery.

I had to take off the garment because it was smelly n i wanted to shower. Taking it off hurt butt putting it back on was a killer. Next time ill take my meds before i take it off. I notice a little flab in the stomach area so i put a cardboard there to help with the compression. I hope i dont have to take off the garment until friday my post op appt. Tomorrow ill have to use a wash cloth n wipe my areas because i wont have anyone to help me put it back on.
Many of the girls on this site wanted huge unrealistic looking butts. For me i only wanted a little lift n volume. The heller in my opinion is great at what he do; he didnt lie to me about what to expect. I kid u not i have no bruising n little swelling in the butt. My recovery is not what i expected its smooth sailing. The situation about my husband; i lied that its back surgery n he wont get to c it until im fully healed. I feel so guilty n had i told him he wouldnt agree.

Six day post op. I walked 25 blocks yesterday and i feel so energized. My recovery is coming along great n to b honest i thought the pain would b unberable. I changed my garment frm lg to medium n by the way im healing n contouring so fast i may need to get a sm soon. A friend who got her bbl done in dominican republic told me take the garment to the cleaners when they get big n stop wasting money. They will sew the garment.

Elliot M. Heller, MD

Dr heller was informative regarding the procedure and didnt promise me a miracle. His staff was super friendly and my wait time wasnt long. My appts were scheduled in a timely manner and the nurse called to remind me that i had an appt. The manhattan office is super clean and it u dont want to drive all transportation is a block away.
