SURGERY GABAY Philadelphia, PA FINALLY DONE

I'm new to this site but love the reviews everyone...

I'm new to this site but love the reviews everyone had been putting up. I have a consultation with Dr. gabay coming up next week. I'm not nervous because this won't be my first consultation but this is the first time I'm actually serious about getting the procedure done. I've seen 1-3 pictures of his work from 3 different woman. But have noticed a few people have actually had the procedure done by him. Why haven't they post their pictures are they not satisfied with their results?? Anyway my shape is actually good just no butt 5'7 37inch waist and 40 inch hips I weigh 150 but my wright goes up and down. I'm just wondering if I have enough fat,I know I'm over my bmi and tons of people say I'm not fat but that's with clothes on lol. I'm just concerned if ill have to gain weight and if not how many cc per cheek will I need. Answers replies HELP

Ok so my consult was today. Pretty long wait to actually see the doctor. Office was spacious and clean. Gabay came in got straight to point(felt a lil rush) but he quoted me 5300 for stomach,flanks and backs told him I didn't want my legs done bc I love em but once he said 100cc wouldn't be obtainable bc I don't have alotta fat(lost weight) told him just do my legs the more the better since you loose volume. His quote was way high then I expected. I should him my wish picture and he said he can get close to that. I put a deposit down to hold my spot in December deposit was 400$ non fefundable but u can change your date if you need more time comung up with the funds. So they suggested glamourcredit.com does anyone know of any other places to check

Haven't updated in a while still anxious and nervous about my soon to be new booty!! But I have a concern about the drains if they have to stay in for 2weeks then are you able to goto work? I have a sit down job. So now I'm worried becauseDr. G says it takes a week to recover.

I got mine from a friend...and all it actually is, is a kids floaty tube (for the pool)...mickey mouse to be exact...if not u can go to any medical supply store or a 'real' pharmacy (not walgreens) and they should have one
They also give you the hernia wrap and disposable mattress protectors (ask for many as you need)
