Hello Ladies! Im so happy to have found what seems...
Hello Ladies! Im so happy to have found what seems to be the perfect forums for the believers of happy endings. I myself am a 32 year old mother of 6 great kids. My husband and i have what you call a combined family. I had 2 kids from a prior relationship and so did he....... then we had 2 of our own....an yes WE ALL LIVE TOGETHER..LOL, so thats 3 Boys 3 Girls and a overwhelmed mom making us the official BRADY BUNCH!!! lol Ive always considered myself to be a BEAUTIFUL , THICK, CURVY WOMAN..... BUT while busy raising all these kids, tending to my husbands and loosing my "SEXY"...i feel its more than time to welcome MY SEXIER BACK!!! I feel like I've put myself to the back burner ( with good reason cause all my kids are worth it) But now its time to do something nice for myself.
I committed to loosing 30-40 lbs and give the rest of my years all I've got. Im anxious and excited to read and share this journey with all you ladies. Realself.com Has allowed me to see I'm not alone and i commend all of the REAL WOMEN on this forum for having the courage to share the personal stories,feelings and pictures to allow women like myself to see the truth behind the clothes. We now have the opportunity to explore the possibilities of regaining whats been gone for way to long .... COMFORTABLE CONFIDENCE! Don't get me wrong, Ive always been confident , but after having my last baby, MY NOW SAGGY TWINS AND FLAP JACK FROM HELL WITH A SIDE OF STRECH MARKS HAS TAKING ITS TOLL ON ME...LOL. I want to feel as good in and out of my clothes as i once did. So now I'm ready to trade in my Saggy Twins for HAPPY GIRLS and my FLAP JAck For a scar and somewhat Six pack...lol. Im ready to turn my Mans head and feel good while he's looking. SO to all us ladies ...... May our beauty be restored and booty NEVER Be Ignored!.... Best wishes to all of us. And hope to update everyone soon!

It's been a long time...I shouldn't have left ya!.. lol old school throw backs! im coming back for my lre mommy body... no ... e
So ive lost 60 lbs since my last posting and am looking on loosing at least 25lbs more ! Since I dont really base my weight loss on numbers and more on inches and clothing size I believe that with a few more lbs lost I will be were I want before surgery. Im leaning towards having surgery in Dominican Republic now instead of in the states simply because of their incision techniques and liposculpturing. Plus I can get a little more for the money! I just want to be a Super C~U~R~V~A~C~E~O~U~S BRICK HOUSE!!!! LOL..... and look gorgeous in my WEDDING dress for next summer of course! ;-). ANYWAY, here's a few updated new pics . Hopefully I can reach my goal before the big day. Looking foward to my fiance saying im married to Mrs.C~U~R~V~A~C~E~O~U~S!!! ;-)
All the true sides of me.....

I need to make up my mind . Im currently scheduled with Dr. Robles for 4/7/2014 but have had another Dr. in dr catch my interest. I recently read of a client that was doing very well in the beginning to then 2 months later find out she has a horrible infection do to GUAZE being left deep inside her belly button while being worked on by robles. I know mistakes happen but that just scared the crap out of me. Theres just so many horrible things happening….. :-( i just want to be alive and well after the surgery so i can maker home to my kids and still be SEXY…lol… i know, that didn't sound right but you laddies get my drift… riight????…lol

My heart is breaking. I need some encouragement. . :-( my trip will soon be here and im a ball of nerves without hearing all of these devastating updates. I have 6 kids that I would hate to leave behind because of vanity...:-( . My wedding is in August and I REALLY want this but im soooooo scared now... I feel like crying. I wish I coukd tell the future and know everything will be ok. I need help, im about to break down. :-(
Well ladies SAY EHLO TU MY LITOL FRRREND.... Ms. Flap jack Attack!...lol
So ladies my sx date is quickly approaching and I am anxious, excited and looking forward to joining the flat side very soon. Im no longer nervous and hope I continue to feel this calm. Im praying im able to get all I want done since my levels were good before I even started taking 325 mg of iron (Hemo was 13.6) hopefully ive increased it a bit more in order to have all I want as well as prevent needing any transfusion. Anyway, the most important thing is my health and life. Whatever I can have done safely is what it'll be. :-)
Packed and almost ready to go!
The COUNTdown has begun! 10
YES ladies, in ten days I will be flying out to Santo domingo! In pursuit of my SEXY BACK the following day...Cant wait.!
Yea yea yea..... its a day late for my 8th day count down. .. but better late then never. Lol :-P
Flying out a week from today!
Good morning ladies! So I guess I must be going through some nesting moment. I fi d myself trying to get everything done in order to feel better throughout my stay in Dominican Republic. This will be the First time I leave my 3 yr old in over night care with someone else other than me or his dad. ( if you read my profile you'll understand my attachment to the 3 year old). My other kids are older so I know they'll be able to help their Abuela:( my mom) & Nana: ( his mom) out with the two younger ones. For those of you who haven't read my profile, I have six kids rankings from 17- 3years of age. 3 boys 3 girls. Boys 17, 16, 3 & Girls 15, 12, 7. My hands are constantly full of Teen, preteen, kid and toddler activities. ..lol. I deal with all stages of growing up in my house all at one time so you can imagine the ambiance at my place but I wouldn't switch it for the world. As excited as I am.... im also feeling a bit guilty for chosing to go through with this and leaving my kids behind with all the risks I KNOW this sx can have. God knows I want nothing more then to make it back home to my kids safely. I pray that ive made the right decision for myself and that all will go well. Please lady keep me in your constant prayers as I embark on tjis journey as I do for you guys. Since this is a step ive decided to take im going in as strong and POSITIVE minded as can. I can't allow individaul negative situations ruin my chain if positive toughts and energy. With that said ladies.... here we go, only 6 more days till I fly out and 7 till im in sx!!!! God bless us all and may we all go in GOOD and come out GREAT!
Yea its late to ...:-P. Lol
Good morning dolls! Hope everyone is doing well! Im super excited to know I will soon be on my way to DR for my transformation!!!!! I cant wait to be on the "FLAPLESS" SIDE. lol I say it this way because my stomach might not be "completely flat " right now but its considerably flat for me being a big girl. Im just happy to be getting the Flap mommy pouch removed. The only down side to this for me is that I KNOW I will stay with tons of stretch marks since mine stretch super high above my belly button. :-( .... but.... :-)... im use to them so they dont really bother me anymore since ive never had a complaint about them if you get my drift...;-) Stretch marks or not, I love me and thats all that counts! Ttyl ladies .....muah!
( in my Tony Montana voice)...SAY ELLO TU MY LIDELL FRENS!
Here are some close ups of my leeches! Lol. ... oh well, it is what it is. Im im sure my outcome will be interesting. BUT IM GOING TO STILL BE HOT.... just with some leftover badges of honor. ..lol
Good morning lovelies! Hope everyone enjoys their day.
Wow.... anxious, excited and nervous.
Good morning ladies! Tomorrow i'll be taking that trip y'all! :-)
GOOD MORNING MY LOVELIES.....
In my way to the AIRRRRRRRPORRRRRT BABY!!!!! ;-) KEEP me and all of the sx ladies in prayer. Will update upon my arrival! Luv my RS GIRLS!!! MUAH
Ok ladies.... the hubby and I are on board and ready to go! Prayers going up amd all over the place!!!! Ttyl dolls Ryry see you there babe! ;-)
The day is here and I cant Belive im doing this!!!! :-)
Good morning ladies! so im here at CECIP waiting for my surgery. im not sure at what time I will go in but its definitely today. believe ut ir not, I thought I wouldnt be able to sleep last night but my babe slept in the bed with me and I was very happy and comfy. I habe been very calm but anxious at the same time. Once I got here I had all my test done and everything looks good ... HEMO IS AT 14 BABY!!!!! and that with my period in since friday! So ive met Dr. Robles and she seems very sweet humble and honest. I originally came here for a BA , TT & Side LIPO.... BUT as I figured she did try to convince me to have a lift..... im just not mentally ready for that scar. So she will do TT, BACK lipo, side lipo and bbl" fat transfer" . She marked my breast up last night just incase I change my mind about the breast. ..... but im convinced that I need time to deal with the scaring if shes willing to put them in with lifting I'll do it but if not.... its a no go for me. For now im scheduled for everything minus my breast for now. Lets see what happens. God willing in a few hours I will be ready for my procedure. I'll try to keep you guys updated. Keep me in prayers ladies! Chao for now muuuahhhh! ;-)
just took the blue pill! in so nervous! !! :-)o_O
Here we go!
well Ladies, iiiiiiimmmmmmm baaaaaaaaaak! I made it to the FLAT SIDE!!!!!!
Ok heres my skinny..... I got to Santo domingo at 1:30pm. Met a really sweet girl that was going to be a Robles patient herself. My hubby and I chit chatted it of with her and tried to make her a bit more comfortable since she was also nervous as well as I was. She's such a cutie! Anyway, Willson the driver wS there to pick us up but had to wait for ine more girl. .. that by the way never showed up. ....hey shit happens.but along with my story, we finally left the airport which I might add filled with Native Dr women who had there bodies done which now as a realself freak I can spot a mile away....lol so we get in the van and took like a 25 min ride to the clinic. Wilson seemed pretty nice an shy and so I tried to break the ice with hi. By spesking in spanish and then translating for my hubby and girl we met. We get to the clinic and were at ahhhhh since it really is beautiful. We pretty much were checked in and lead to our rooms. Everyone do far has been VERY hospitable and kind. A few hous later after filling out paperwork we were sent to have testiing done. Cardiologist came to our room to finish the up yrsting with his EKG that's ancient but does the job! ... a few more hours passed and I met the one and only Dr. Robles herself... wonderful woman from my point of view. And laura has ways been cery attentive to my needs and questions do I can honestly that my experience with laura has been a good one. Next around 9:30 am I was given the BLUE pill and got nervous has heck but I still remaind positive from door. Im judt so honey came along with me h3s been so helpful all throught this journey of mine. After taking the bule pill which did nothing for me about 25 minutes later aman came for me.... and he wisked me away. Girls all I remember was stiing up talking to the anesthesiologist while she paced an iv....and boom, dont remember a thing else nut waking up call my hubby and telling him how much I lovefed him.... it was so cute he just had to record itlol... I was literally dunk in love@!! Well here are some photos.will update more soon! Wauuuh! Oh and by the way I pian so far is tolerable. Had a Tt, back, side & waist lipo. ! And BBL " FAT TRANSFER."

Anyway, without further or due I introduce to you all Ms. Sexy BEEEEEEEEETTTTTTYYYYYY!
11th day PO
Im back home and thank god doing well. Im am a bit swollen but nothing that i didnt expect... sure swell hell will rear its ugly face as its usually part of the process. Anyway Here's a little peek at my incision after caring for it. GOD WILLING I'll continue to do well...looking good so far. Im a little swollen but I can still see some ab action peeking through...;-) guess those 100 sit ups a day worked. Can't wait to be able to work out again one day. For now im just focusing on healing. Ok ladies, will update soon after I see change in phases. Happy healing everyone!
14 Days PO
So today makes 15 days... wow, time really does fly, doesn't feel as if so much time has gone by. Ive posted my 14 day po or 2 week ( whatever you want to call it) pic. Not much different than they prior ones... still a little swollen but im sure with time things will get better. I cant wait to be healed and start working out again, im dying to do some squats to work on my gluteus maximus;-). Hoping and praying all goes well for me and all the up coming ladies! Ttyl!
side pic .... need to get my squats on..... later though...lol, now im must just concentrate on healing.
Little swelling..... oh, P.S..... I HATE FAJAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!!!! But got to where them...lol. definitely have a love hate relationship with them. Need to find a softer one cause these are killing my sides.
My faja I LOVE and HATE!
Here I am looking like a stuffed loin...lol . I don't know about they other post op ladies but its a MUST that I wear an under shirt and padding under my faja especially by my ribs to avoid faja burns. My sides are so sore from lipo but I find the apply thick pads prevents me from getting burns though it still hurts to wear them. Everything and anything I wear that applies the slightest pressure indents my skin. ..im guessing its from the swelling from lipo.... I so cant wait to be pass this stage and feel a bit more normal in my skin and clothes.
Hi ladies! forgot to mention ...
So after reading my initial post op update I saw I mentioned "fat transfer" or bbl..... well, I assumed that because the dr. And I had discussed the possibility of fat transfer since I was no longer getting my boob. She mentioned that the dents that I wanted filled out were cellulite dents and in most cases the would not fill in but she'd try. Well after speaking with her on my last post op visit before I left I mentioned to her that my butt DIDN'T hurt like ive heard other girls describe and she mentioned to me that its because she did not do the fat transfer because I told her if my butt was going to be big enough when she tugged my tt forward I would like her NOT to do it cause I didn't want to be to big. So she said since my hips and butt looked more pronounced after she lipoed my lower back and tucking me she refrained from doing a full fat transfer. She did though fill in one of my small dents to even it out a bit .... hence the small bandaid under my right cheek. Lol:-).
Anyway, im glad she didn't do the bbl because my hips & ass looks HUGE now that my waist is smaller. All and all happy with my results!
1 drain out 1 to go!
Little update... im feeling good. Thankung god for a smooth recovery do far. Im happy to say that one of my drains is out! My best friend/ sister/ my all that and then some best nurse in the world took it out for me! Shes definitely a life saver! Thank you K!!!! Love you! Hes a little peek at my world... hopefully in time some of the swelling will subsided snd I'll be all good. Ok ladies.... happy healing and best wishes on each one of your journey. . Will update soon after anymore change.
21 days PO
Good morning ladies! Here for a quick update. Well today I am officially Drain FREE!!!!!! Yay me! Im doing very well in my recovery and all looks well. I am a bit swollen at the bottom of my tummy but im thinking this is just a signature style of how robles does her TT. I am by no means disappointed though. I know I ama bit swollen and even retaining some ffluidsin my tummy which is sooooo weird but im hoping that shortly this affect if not have my drains in will subsides with no adverse affect. If anyone has any experience with dealing with tis abdominal fluid I would be greatly appreciative for the advice.
Anyway, Here are some pics I took yesterday at 20 days post op after having my side drain removed. Hope everyone is doing well! Ttys!
OMG .... I finally SHOWEREDand it felt soooooo GOOOOOODah!!!!!!
Hello Ladies... so today I finally showered and it felt so good. I got up around 5:30 and drove to a 24 hr cvs so I can get some antibacterial soap and band aids to welcome in my first shower safely. ..lol. today my stomach looked flatter but it still has my little belly dancer pouch... I dont mind it much cause I gladly except it in replacement of my smiling flap jack.lol besides I think its a little sexy....I look like a curvy belly dancer with a hint of abs ;-)
4 weeks post op
So here I am ladies! 4weeks post op! Im happy with my results and SUPER HAPPY with my incision! The only thing im having an issue with is the trapped fluids. Im definitely going to have to go somewhere to have it aspirated. Other than that im love my results. Hope everyone is doing well. Will keep everyone updated as to I handle this wave in my lower Tummy. Anyone whose going through the same thing I would greatly appreciate your advice or experience. Tty all later! :-)
so more pics...
Not that bad.... im hoping that with a few sessions of getting aspirated I will be good.
Had my first syringe Draining!
Good morning ladies! So quick update. Hsd my 1 draining and it went very well. It was surprisingly painless despite of the HUGE! NEEDLE!!!! I definitely see a difference and I do feel much lighter with all that fluid out.I was told that's in our body will continue to produce fluid I will have to keep coming in for a few more sessions. Hopefully in time with enough compression and more and raining I will have the desired look I want. I am very happy thus farand am very happy I chose Dr Robles to do my surgery. I will update soon when change happens thank you so much for being so supportive and for all the beautiful compliment me everyones journey to be a Blessed One. TTYS!
31 days PO!
Time is flying bye so quickly and I dont even remember the old me. Its weird cause I feel like ive always been this way. Anyway....hopefully I'll be getting my second draining on Saturday. .. my goodness ... this fluid builds up quickly, now I understand why some of our sx sisters have such a tough time wit b bloating and not being able to achieve thst flat look they're hoping for. Without the proper draining after sx and drains being removed the fuilds will just sit in your belly and become hard. Getting the proper after care is vital to your health ad well as your results. Well ladies. Till next time... hope all is well with you All. Ttyl! :-)
Im kind of glad I she didn't do my butt
my tummy tuck actually made my butt look nicer dimples and all!
5 weeks PO... :-)
Happy Belated mothers day ladies! Hope everyone is doing well. ?
7 weeks PO
Hey ladies! Hope everyones been diing well. I know ive been MIA but ive been so consumed with work and my upcoming wedding that I really havent had the time or energy at times to post or reply to comments.... but I promise I will try to answer some of the questions asked. Cant wait to see some of the new flat side sisters. Well as I promised. .. here are my 7week po pics. Nothing has really changed but the fact that I swell less THANK GOD! !!! I do swell at times but nowhere near as before. So I guess is safe to say it definitely gets better over time! Best wishes to all the ladies. Ttys!
forgot to ad side pics. .
Phases of my swelling. I'll take this verses my flap any day.
Almost 9 weeks!
Gm ladies! Posting a few days earlier then my usual bi weekly post. Ok, so .... so far everything is WONDERFUL..... my incision is very low, Neat and precise! My belly button is adorable and the tuck itself is beautiful. Every day my physique looks better and better. I swell less and less and am able to go without my faja for a day.. . I put her on every night before bed.... it like a freaking ritual lolololololol! Anyway, no complaints here, I absolutely love what Dr. ROBLES has done for me. The one thing I can say is that I do notice since she doesn't lipo the TT area you tend to have a little "pooch, pouch, lower belly" or whatever you want to call it .... but to be honest I kind of like it! Maybe because I never really had a protruding stomach my belly pouch is not bad at all, very realistic looking.... I actually think i look like a belly dancer ...its sexy ;-).... Dr. Robles definitely gets 2 thumbs up from me.
oh.... and forgot to mention. .. I have my cycle and im bloated... it tends to be flatter then what you see un these pics.;-)
High ladies! Just checking in. I dont have much to say but that im SUPER CONTENT with my results. I have worked hard and disciplined myself to obtain my, desired look. Im not there yet but I see myself very close to my goal. Do I think my tuck is flawless. ..NO, BUT!!!!! I am VERY great for where I am now. I absolutely love how SUPER LOW my scar is and how natural my stomach looks with its sexy pouch and all. .... like I mentioned before I kind of like it. ..I think it gives me that THICK as HECK belly dancer look. Lol. Anyway, Im totally happy and look forward to seeing futher improvement with good diet and exercise. Can't wait to work on my abs again cause I already see them trying to peek out and I havent even worked out once ever since my surgery;-)
Almost 4 months later...
Good morning ladies! Just dropping in to say Heeeeeeeey!;-) ... miss ya'll!!!
I have been MIA...but its only cause ive been Tremendously busy with a recent job search do to state employees layoff, just moved into a new house and the most STRESSFUL WEDDING planning and REARRANGING in the world do to my job loss.... yea, tons on my plate and Mind.... so you can see my reason for absence from the board. Never the less the show must go on! I can't wait to see how it all turns out. Anwho... I know we RS'ers Love updates so here are mine. Hope all has gone well for all the ladies on the mission to your new and improved you. Ttyl! :-)
