I must say this has been the most exciting and life changing experience I've had in a long time. I have a very square shape with a big upper back and no hips, "Yuck"!!, which disgusted and depressed me every time I went into a fitting room to try on clothes.
I had my procedure done on April 20th and although I was a bit nervous and I couldn't believe that I was actually doing it, I couldn't wait for the day to come. My doctor and his staff assured me that everything would be just fine and I would be happy with my results. They actually made me feel like family and I enjoyed the way they were almost more excited for my result than I was.
I was up during the ENTIRE procedure cracking jokes with the Dr. and his staff and listening to my Dr. say " okay here goes those Beyonce hips", lol..while under being local anesthesia. Of course I felt a little discomfort, but nothing to go absoultely crazy about especially since he talks you through each step. However, each person has a different pain threshold and what may be nothing to some may be excrutiating to others. His method was so smooth and left me with no bruising and very tiny scars from the injected and lipoed areas.
When the Dr. and his staff told me that I could do the procedure on a Wednesday and go back to work on Monday, I didn't believe them so I took off an additonal week. I should have believed them because the day after the surgery, I drove myself to my appointment from Central Jersey to Midtown Manhattan, with a towel rolled up behind my back and one rolled up underneath of my thighs so that I wouldn't put too much pressure on the areas.
My recovery time was very quick and I only used 2 extra strenth tylenol once a day for about 3 days, because of the soreness. The next week or so I was still a bit sore but shopped, washed clothes, cooked and did every thing like normal. I wore my compression garment for 2 weeks and slept on my stomach for the first week.
Although it said that having really nice tight skin is a good thing and it usually is.... but for the purposes of a Buttlift, I don't think so. I had so much good, juicy, pretty-looking fat waiting to go inside of my booty that was lipoed from my upper back and flanks, but my body (or skin)would only allow 400 cc's. My plan was to get at least 600 cc's or more but that didn't happen. The fat actually began to ooze back out, because my body wouldn't allow any more. Of course I was disappointed because my dream of that big booty was gone. However, when I went back to work, no one noticed that my butt all of a sudden looked bigger. They just kept complimenting me on how nice I look and how my clothes fit, lol. I LOVE IT!!!
So of course my butt has gone down significantly because I only had 400 cc's, but I look and feel great. I love the way I am finally filling my clothing and actually have curves with my cute little round booty and non indented hips. I can't stop trying on clothes!!!!
After pictures coming soon!!!
