2nd time around..BBL IN LESS THAN 2 weeks

First, I wanted something like a bbl since I could remember, being one of those girls who had height, breast, and everything else with a flat ass, I was always insecure. I never wore shirts in my pants, never wore the female jogging suits, when I tell u insecure, I mean it.

So I looked at many doctors and had to make sure that immediately I felt comfortable with the right one, and I found him. Well yesterday I got it done and let me tell you, not everyone's level of pain is the same cuz reading some of the reviews I said Im gonna be goooooood, well I definitely siked myself out.

I'm on day 2 n OUCH!! But I will keep u guys posted cuz I'm not even sure what it looks like under there. I am visiting my doc for my first post op tomorrow...

Today is about the fifth to sixth day after my bbl and I'm feeling much better. The lying on my stomach is still a bit annoying but overall I'm getting used to it.

The swelling is going down n the bruising is slowly but surely fading away.

I'm starting to see the results and hopefully I don't lose too much of the fat that was placed cuz the doctor contoured my body nicely, and I don't really have a stomach anymore but that wasn't the reason for my surgery. I would hate to have to touch up anything. I go back for another visit in 4 days n I will talk to him about it.

I visited my ps and it went well. I was told I had 600cc's put in. I'm healing nicely and I loooooooooove it. I can't stop looking at it except I haven't really gone anywhere cuz I don't have any clothing in my closet that fits, I love shopping for shoes but I think I might love to shop for bottoms now. I'm gonna post some before and after pics for yall

i visited the doctor on friday for my 2 month post op visit and she stated everything looks good but i expressed to her that i am not happy because the swelling has gone down on my butt but alooooot of the fat has been reabsorbed and the amount of money i paid, i am not happy with the results that i have now. I am not sure if more of the fat will be absorbed but i feel in 6 months, if i am given a discount i will be performing the procedure once more. I am not sure if anyone is/has been through the same feeling i am going through now but it is quite a disappointment and upsetting.

It's been over 4 months post op and I have been...

It's been over 4 months post op and I have been reading updates from other ppl but the updates stop coming after about 2 months when everything goes back to "normal". Well I am inclined to post an update as I was looking in the mirror a minute ago.

I loved the look at first but it has gone down SIGNIFICANTLY!!!!!! I know there is a difference from pre op to now but I feel it was sort of a waste n false hope. My ps stated that some of the fat gets reabsorbed n because my skin is tight he couldn't put more, but now it looks round at the hips but flat. My butt is not a nice round shape.

I have been reading a lot about this procedure n realized I'm not the only one that this has happened to. I will try to get it redone soon, as most doctors say 6 months. But in the mean time put up with my dissatisfaction.

Confirmed my date for April 6 to Dr. Salama and just booked my flight and hotel. So now just have to start buying products and things for my "stay package" and since this is the second time around, i kinda have an idea of what my necessities are that i have to pack......so now begins the waiting and preparing game........

As of today April @, 2012, i am getting ready to...

as of today April @, 2012, i am getting ready to make my trip to Dr. Salama for my BBL. i just spoke to larry the driver and he sounds sooooooo cool!! i mean i felt like i could converse with him all day on the phone. I have set everything up and all that is left for me to do is pack my things and head down by the end of this week. i will be keeping in touch with you guys and adding a before picture of what i look like now and an after after (lol, because this is my second bbl) when im done.

Unfortunetly due to Dr. salama's accident in the...

unfortunetly due to Dr. salama's accident in the beginning of April, my appt was rescheduled and i had to book it for August 2nd, which ironically is exactly one year from my first bbl procedure. i was very disappointed when i had to be rescheduled because everything was set, booked, and ready to go. All i could do now is play the waiting game until August......
Good luck to everyone having the surgery and until late July..Everyone have a great Summer be stay n look good doing it!!!!!!

13 days to go for my surgery part two.....praying to God for a safe and speedy recovery. This is will be my second bbl since my first bbl I wasn't too satisfied with. I'm not looking forward to the pain that I felt before but I pray my results are what I envision.

Hey thanks for your review. I also was considering Dr. Michael Jones. The receptionist called me to schedule an appointment. Once she said he was only in DC once a month......had me thinking so what if something happens. I immediately said no. Your review let me know that was the right decision. He is pricey, did not realize he charged that much. How was your surgery with Salama?

Thank u mz. Newbotty. My booty went down alot. My boyfriend says it looks good but when I put on clothes its not "round" enough. It definitely has lost volume. I'm not going for round two for a huge unnatural butt, just s nice large bum.

Wish you all the best honey! So sorry you had to go thru this... same thing happened with my breast implants, I wanted a natural look, first two months they looked big and amazing. Now I wish I had some more cc's.

Question: How much did you pay Dr. Jones? and how much for Salama? Did you negotiate or that wasn't a consideration for you/them?
  • Reply
I paid Dr. Jones $10,000 and that did not come with anything extra but I and I'm paying Dr. Salama approx $5,800 for the surgery, garments, n 2 massages.. but living on NYC these are the type of prices you pay....Smh

hey which dr did u go to?
  • Reply
My first doctor I had a bbl done with was in NYC Dr. Jones. He's been on Oprah, Wendy Williams, etc. The results set "okay" but he did what he thought would be the best for me not what I "wanted". So my back wasn't lipoed enough n I feel like I have a big back n a medium bottom which to me looks off.
I just booked my touch up with Dr. Salama, its gonna cost a few hundred more than someone whose never had lipo done in the same place before.
  • Reply
Are you going to Dr. Salama? You wont regret it? I'm really planning on him because I love his results. this is my last time so i need to go out with a bang!lmao
  • Reply
Yup...Dr. Salama it is. When I got it done in august, after feeling the pain, which I didn't expect was sooooooo bad, I said I wouldn't do it again. But that was when I was swollen n it looked amazing. After the swelling went down and the fat got absorbed, I'm like I want the look I had when I first got it done... So here I am!!!!
I pray everything goes well and I get the permanent results that I'm looking for cuz until my boobies drop after I have a kid or two n I get a breast lift, this is it for me.

Hey girl, im like u! i had my procedure in April and im also on here! i have not personally done a update in a while, and i have retained my fat. however, it is not enough...when i put on jeans its like not round enough and i need a littl hips, so be glad you have hips! i plan to get redo in febn or march but i have to get a tummytuck as well because the ps made it seem like my tummy would go flat but the skin is loose and the belly is still there...jerk should have just kept it real! then they dont want to give you any money back, just touch ups, i dont want him touching me like never! so any way that is my plans tummytuck and more fat to hips and butt! that is why this time im really doing my research!

Congrats!! I have a few quick questions, did u go down any sizes after or go up a size? Is it hard to find clothes to fit that awesome new booty? Did u loose any weight at all after the lipo and fat transfer?
  • Reply
Yes, I actually went down 2 sizes...you have to wait to buy new pants.. I bought several pants and now they are all big on me
  • Reply
I also went down a couple sizes. I still haven't brought anymore jeans cuz I don't know my true size plus every jean maker n brand runs different. I'm really thinking about going for a second surgery in a few months because I feel A LOT of fat has gotten reabsorbed and a touch up is necessary, so I can't buy clothes until I make that decision.

Hi numeee. I really can't comment on your difference because a only see that one picture. But from the look of it ..I see butt... Can you tell me a little of the things you stayed away from or did during your recovery? Like for me. I am on my 2nd month and I still have a nice amount of my fat. I was advise to not sit for 6 weeks...not workout for 3 months ...not wear jeans and stay out of the sun for 3 moths. Are those some of the things you have done?
