Hi Everyone, I am officially a part of the...
I am officially a part of the Schulman Family, I went for my consultation with him on last Friday and I booked on the spot. I knew I would though, I had already done a lot of background research on him so I knew he would be awesome and meeting him only confirmed by research.
My story goes a little something like this, I've always been the "pretty" girl to others but I have always been insecure about my body. I have NEVER had a butt, and for a long time I felt like I could just buy a pair of jeans to make it look right and that was enough. Well the older I got ( Im 32 now by-the-way) The more insecure I got, and the more I look at my body I HATE it. I mean I don't think I'm unattractive because of it, I just know I could look so much better if I wasn't carrying around a pancake! (hehe) and now that Im older and have had a child my stomach has become a problem , so now I have this 3 month pregnant looking belly and no-butt ( yea.. not really what I see as sexy)
So after looking into this procedure for some time now I decided to have a consult and do something for me. Me doing this is solely for me, my self esteem, and just feeling comfortable with my body.
With that being said I am so excited and scared ... I really can not wait to just finally have a butt lol I know that sounds shallow and vein but it's true ..lol.. I just want to fill out some sweats and be confident with my body in a room full of women. This is what I need.. so pray for me as my days get closer..
When should I start purchasing things?
Thanks Ladies- I will add pre-op pics soon as well as wish pics

Quick Question Ladies
Got My Physical and Blood Work Done!
So I have gotten my physical and my blood work - this weekend I will go the hospital that my PCP is affiliated with to get my Chest xray and the EKG.
Time is winding down and I am getting really excited/nervous- I have a mix of feelings- I have gained a little weight I was 170 now Im 180 im 5'6 though so I dont look fat but outside of clothes this gutt!! Is Killing me- and I hate that my butt does not project and match the size of my hips! Lets pray Schulman fixes that. Pics coming soon. Trying to wait till Im 1 month out to post pics.
Exactly One Month Post-OP Shopping Time
Okay so I have begun my shopping for some of the things that I feel would benefit me most post op, Today I got gauze pads, tape for the gauze pads, peroxide, gloves for my mom- she will be taking care of me :) , my Arnicare gel for the swelling, got a gentle laxative in case is have issues with moving my bowles, dramamine for nausea,and I started taking my multi vitamin (Nature Made Multi - for her). Online I am purchasing my foam pads to sit my thighs on so my booty can hang off and not have pressure applied, a female urinal, and last but not least Medi-sol!
I think Im off to a good start- Ladies if you think there is something that I'm missing that I really need to have - Please let me know
Thanks to my ladies that have put up list and guides on what is needed - Very! Very! helpful!!
25 Days Post OP
I really more than anything want this stomach gone!! and some projection! I trust that Dr. S will hook me up. Ive posted some more before pics .. Thinking these will be my last- Till I do the big reveal- Hay that less than 30 days away!!
Very excited as you all can see- Talk to you all soon xoxo
Doubt they change much from today to surgery day
Weight 180 lbs ( no-one ever things I weigh this much) I guess I carry it well
Arms 13 1/2 - top middle of arm (between shoulder and elbow) - I am having them lipo'ed
Okay so I am having Lipo to my flanks, upper (bra roll) and lower back, stomach, and arms. (no thighs) my thighs are fine- I only want fat taken from my upper body and whatever can be used for the bottom - Filllllerrrrup!! haha
After surgery and healing I'm looking to measure
Height 5'6 ( I don't plan on shrinking in height) haha
Weight: between 150 and 160 max (this is my usual weight before I got bigger)
Bust: 36 or 34 (should loose back fat inches across my back)
Waist 28 or 29 ( I know this will require Gym and exercise)
hips between 45 and 47 ( lifted with projection)
Arms: between a 10 and a 11( I hate big arms, hopefully they get even smaller, will be working these out as well)
I wont start any working out till atleast 6-8 months post op, I think its best to just try to eat good and heal for the first 6 months - I will do light cardio like power walking, but most important the way I eat will change.
Welp wish me luck - I have a plan - lol - hopefully it works - you know what they say "If you fail to plan... you plan to fail" lol
Above is Pre-op Measurements not Post- Sorry Ladies..
Paid in Full- Went to Pic up my Prescriptions
I know that many factors play a significant role in healing like "smoking" if you are a smoker you should have quit atleast 1 month before sx- and at least 6 months after- They say smoking can stop you from retaining the fat.
Sitting.. Im going to shoot this question off to Dr. S office, but I'm curious to know what the myth's are and what the pure facts are- Like do you have to wait a month or two months what is the true waiting period on sitting, and when will it not make a difference.
I am just praying for good results, My next post will be on the 14th of feb. Valentines Day!! Wishing you all a very happy Valentines day that day, I will also be pre-paying for my alternate stage 2 garment, and stage 1 that day, and then just picking up my very last minute things before sx.
Well happy Journey to everyone!! Almost to the other side :)
And the anti- biotic - do you all feel it helped with stopping infections? I know some ppl were victims to infections that they had to treat- wondering if those ladies were on an antibiotic and if so which one.
6 days till SX- Im Nervous!!!!!!
Here is a little info- So if you Choose Dr. Schulman as your doc. you will recieve a call from Rachel - The patient coordinator the week before your sx- I just got mine last week. She will give you your sx time. I was told my sx time is 8am but I need to be there by 7:15 so Im guessing I will have a final consult with Schulman see the anesthesiologist, and fill out any additional paperwork between 7:15 and 8. At 8 transformation begins!!
Now I don't know how well they will be with sticking to the schedule- But I will let you all know how it goes afterwards.
I made it to the other side!!
Update-day 2 post op
First shower Was Monday
This booty is huge! Lol he took out 3 thousand cc of fat from the front upper body and 4 thousand cc of fat from the back upper body.
He was only able to fit 1250cc in each check but let me tell you he got my waist really small and this booty is soooo big lol it has to go down some.
Now back to the shower I stood up n held on to my mom while my sister unbuttoned n unzipped the front of the garment. I then layed face down while they pulled the garment off. Next I used all 3 bottles of the Medi-sole n removed the foam. Which was a task but def. helped. You literally can not get it off without that stuff. Now after you take it off there may be a clear like sheet still left on your skin. Try to get it alllllllll off before putting the garment back on or like myself you will regret it because it will irritate your skin. I'm taking care of it tho so it's only a minor set back.
So far I love the results I just need my booty to go down a little lol it's huge girls lol. We'll any questions let me know.
And just in case I do not post by Thursday I want to wish my sistah!! Elli890 a safe and speedy recovery n blessings that everything goes we'll on Thursday.
Talk to you all soon and as soon as I'm able to edit my background I will post pictures.
Here are the Pics!!
First BM!! And Requested Pics
I also have pics of me before and after of my arms and my hips from the front n from the side.
2 weeks today!!
Didn't realize how badly I would just want to sit the hell down normally! Lol I've been working from home since the Monday after my surgery and doing assignments from school online. I did not have a problem with doing either. I have another week or so working from home which I think will be enough time.
This Friday I have my follow up with schulman. My butt has went down a little n gotten softer. Still not completely soft but def. making progress from where I started. My stomach feels hard n tight allll the time. It's like the last very uncomfortable thing. Stage one garment I'm still in I guess I'll see about sizing for stage two Friday.
Welp that's about it ladies any questions feel free to ask. :)
Awesome Follow-up Today!
Today I went for my follow-up with Schulman, I got my second stage garment and some scare cream. I also have the epidermal scare silicone I'll let you all know which works better.
So dr. S let me know he took 7.5 liters of fat out all together and he put 1250 in both cheeks :) I gotta say my butt really fits my frame. He was soooo amazed with the size of my waist! Lol he said I'm putting you on my website! Lol I think he managed to impress himself! Hehe .. He wanted to wait until next visit to take pics n such so we will see how much smaller this waist gets.
Overall good day, and I'm feeling good I'll just be happy when the lipo'd areas get softer and I can sit!!!! Week 8 where are you!! Lol gosh i can't wait to lay in my back n sit!! Lol
Any questions just ask below ladies:* smooches to you all!!
almost 3 weeks gang
My booty has definitely went down, but now its more soft and and the size is reasonable, because that thing was bodacious out of surgery lol I was like is this thing going to go down!! hehe- but yes it did a lot!! I was a little paranoid the other day.. I told my mom I hope it does not go down any more.. the size it is now is good If it goes down more I could potentially be disappointed.
So hopefully I don't loose any more booty.. with my waist being small if def. helps I think I will take measurements at like the one month mark. Well thats my update ladies any questions feel free to ask below.
My question to my vets is- when did the lipo areas stop being sore? and when does fluffing start? and T what week would you say your booty was constant from- like you stopped loosing at what week?
Tom. Makes 3 weeks thank you Jesus!
You now how we get when we feel better! Lol we want everything back to normal! Lol Anyhew I'm sticking it out!
I wear my garment every day! Night n day I live in this thing. Tom. Is my last day in my stage one during the day. On Friday I switch to my phase 2 during the day, but I will be wearing my stage 1 at night to bed.
Here are some pics at 3 weeks I'm not gonna post pics again unless there is a true change in how I look now. We'll not until like week 6 or so almost at the 8 week mark.
By that time we will see if in about the same or if there is significant changes in the booty.
Week 6!!! Moving into Week 7!
Week 3 I stopped waking up every few hours I started sleeping through the whole night around week 3.
Week 4-5 My mind was playing tricks on me!! Sometimes this booty looked big and nice and sometimes I felt like it was shrinking!!! Lol I was feeling a little down about it going down to much but that was all in my head the booty is fine lol.
That brings me to week 6! Here are my updates
Sleeping is not a problem
Booty not a problem
Sitting lord I'm so ready to sit! I have not sat and applied pressure to my booty since I had the sx.
And let's just say we all have different situations we will be in where you will need to sit! Let's just say you need to be creative and wait the 8 weeks!
Now the Lipo areas! Basically my upper body arms, stomach, flanks, all that HEADACHE!! Lol I mean I'm just ready for it to be healed. I'm not in pain in those areas but I am sore as heck!! And very sensitive to touch! Messages probably are a good idea.. I personally message myself but I think I'm going to get a message soon.
I spoke to Dr. Schulman during my last visit which was last Friday and he told me the Lipo areas take months!!!! To heal! Ughhh
Outside of the soreness and tenderness if my upper body I feel 100% back to normal!
I exercise once so far and kept it light .. If I push it to much I know I can still swell so I'm gonna just wait the 8 weeks before doing by anymore .. And let me tell ya!! Lol I tried to run!! hunny this booty felt so heavy!!! Lmaoo I had to stop it feels very funny when I run.
Welp that's about it.
As far as garnets I'm wearing my stage 2 during the day and my stage 1 at night. Dr. Schulman told me to stop wearing the stage one ughhh I'm trying to ween off I guess.
We'll any questions just let me know ladies I know it's been a while since I checked in but I'm here ????????
8 Weeks!!! I Can Sit!!!
I am just using stuff for dark spots now they trying to get skin nice I use biotin.
Here are my pics! Any questions let me know xoxo n happy healing to you all :*
