Hi when's ur sx date?

AlmostPerfect321,
This is why I didn't tell my boyfriend yet, I just told him i'm having surgery and I told him that i'll tell him when the day comes because I know if we were to break up he'll probably tell everyone. Anyway, where did you find out about how much fat can be taken out for your weight, i'd like to know about myself?
The Dr. said i'm a good candidate the way I am but I feel like if I lose maybe 5 pounds I'll look better after surgery. I'm 5'5" and 165 lbs.

like 2 days. they are super fast. The wait was just long, I went to the one near city ave. Just take the script Dr Salama gives you so you can know exactly what test you need. I think you need a EKG too. I got that done at lakuana hospital. It took 20 mins total, no wait. I also took the script to that appointment too.

DAMN BOO!!! I just came to check on you and my heart sank when i read that you had to cancel surgery due to the cig smoke. My sx is at the end of aug, I hope I will be OK with 2 months of not smoking weed. I hope you can get a sooner date too hunny. I'll be praying for you and checking on you soon.

hey girl, don't stress about about smoking weed. when i had my first bbl i had smoked just the day before surgery and i was fine. i even smoked before i had my breast aug. know smoking ciggerates is a different story. it affects your healing process. slows down your blood circulation, which leads to slow healing. =0) don't stress girl! i have a date for october 4th so if any one wants to switch let me know I'm open…

Girl2 im freakin out i try but i have like scab in there so it wont go in...id that normal
  • Reply
Its probably just dried up blood or something, don't worry about it. When you get a chance try to clean it with a little soap and water. If you can then just put it a little in, you don't have to push all the way you just want it open a little so it wont close up, but some people have some scary bb's lol so don't worry about it. it will drop off soon,(the scab)

feeling better

Ok today is the best i felt i only took one perc today ..moving arounf and showering better eating well and luving my flat tummy salma really did a great job he also great with tummytucks just as much as bbl...my drains dont really bother me as much as i thought i just wish i could stand u all the way... My daughter father is home telling everyone i had surgery done why idk but watever ill just prepare for the haters....ill be posting more pics soon

i love dr salma

I text my dr like everyday and he responds super fast i luv that my scar is great really thin... Idk im really swollen and still have one drain in i didnt get dwn to 30 cc im at like 40 sucks but im really afraid of seroma.im about to put a deposit dwn on bbl n a week i luv dr salma he is only dr for me and my man agree with it so hey it works...im gonna post pics of my scar and did anyone else feel really bloated i dont kno if my mind is playing tricks on me cuz my man keeps saying its flat but idk it was flatter when i woke up from surgery

1 Comments

Hey hun! Post updated pics please! I will be two months on Tuesday and we will swell for a while hun! I told my man I was swelling today washing cloths and he was like you cant tell, but I can tell and the way it feels. my feeling is getting a little better, its not as bad as it was. But I still get the tightness. The swelling can take months to a year, so Im waiting to see how I really look in December. He lipoed my flanks really good, I love my curves. I plan to go back for ab, arms, chin lipo and another possible mini bbl. I don't want much more, just at the bottom
