Still not sure of results at 5 weeks post op. For starters I already had a booty, but was looking for a bit more volume and roundess. The money i spent included lipo of the flack, upper back and tummy area. I figured since the fat for the BBL had to come from somewhere take it from those areas. Overall I see a nice shape when i look in the miorr from the front, not happy on the lack of projection from the side and some days i get very swollen and it feels like i haven't done much. For all the inconvenience of the pain, downtime and expense I'm not sure i can say that the BBL is worth it. I think the lipo was but still have to wait to see the 100% results. See my pics and you be the judge. Let's hope that in a few more weeks things heal and the waist gets smaller and the butt gets fluffier as the doctor has promised. Would love your comments and thank you to all the BBL ladies who have shared your journey on RealSelf. Your stories have been both informatiive and inspirational. I'm doing my part by posting my experience.
Brazilian Butt Lift - Not Sure? - New York, NY
Greetings, I am 6 weeks post op and I am changing...
No sure if this was worth it since I'm waiting on results which doesnt seem consistent in that one should definetly see results immediately following a BBL even if its not perfect because we all know that post op healing is a process. Dr Yager's staff is really nice but he seems to be lacking some bedside manners, I saw him the day of my consultation and the day of my surgery (by the way he was gone before i woke up from my operation in the recovery room, something that i didnt appreciate, even though i was told he called several times to see how i was doing) and didnt see him for a while after that. My post op visit 4 days later was with his assistant and my 2 week post op which i had to reschedule making it a 3 week follow up I had to demand that it be with him because again i was going to be scheduled with his assistant. Again his staff is great, his anesthesiologist Dr Pete is great he called me pre and post op to see how i was doing, more than Dr Yager did. Hope the final results are worth it, verdict is till out.
