It has been a LONG TIME Coming and I have finally decided to start tracking my BBL journey with the rest of the ladies involved in this sisterhood now that I’ve officially made the decision to move forward and SCHEDULED MY DATE! Yaaayyyyyyy, I am TOO EXCITED! I have been following a lot of you ladies through your surgeries and recoveries on this site to get all the information that I can on this procedure because I want to learn the good and the bad that everyone has experienced! I am a wife and mother and I’ve never once complained about the sacrifice I make on a daily with putting myself on the back-burner while making sure my family is well taken care of and happy… BUT NOW, I’m ready to do something for me that will make ME happy! For the majority of my life I’ve been unhappy with being too thin. I’ve always had big boobs and hips but a small butt. As I got older, I finally started to gain weight and the curves were enough to have my confidence level through the roof, LOL… my butt didn’t get huge but it was a cute, perky, round butt that fit well with the rest of my body… then like a lot of you ladies on here, I HAD KIDS!!!... the greatest thing in the world that could have happened to me and my life, but NOT THE GREATEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MY BODY! Too thick of a waistline and dents and sagging in my butt... LMBO. I started researching this surgery and going to consultations because I no longer felt confident with my body. Not only did I not like my naked self, but I didn’t like how my clothes fit either… Getting dressed to go out with my husband takes hours now and multiple outfit changes because I dont feel good in anything I wear… I didn’t like how anything fit and my self esteem just really took a hit! My husband loves me just the way I am but he knows that im unhappy and want to do anything it takes to get me back to the confident woman that he met and married. This BBL will be phase 1 of my “mommy makeover” and phase 2 will be a breast lift (no implant). For years I wanted a breast reduction but couldn’t get it approved by my insurance as medically necessary and didn’t have the $$ when I was younger, but now thanks to having kids I no longer need a reduction because that happened naturally… Now im happy with the volume I have and all I need is for these puppies to be LIFTED!
My hubby is the only one that knows right now about me having this done and has been a great support system for me and was surprisingly ok with spending the money to have this done. I think every day he comes home from work I have some new information for him that I learned on this site… lol… I told him I’ve become “borderline obsessed” with reading the stories on here and looking at before/after pics. But his listening ear has been the greatest!!!...After 4 consultations over the past year, I finally chose a doctor and scheduled my date. This will probably be the longest 3 months of my life but I really do need all of this time to get to the weight I want pre-surgery and to prepare mentally and physically. I am 5’6” and about 151 lbs and I am trying to at least get to 165 lbs before the surgery (170 would be even better!).
Dr. Morea was great! He was very respectful and helped me have my mind set on realistic goals for my body size and the amount of fat we're working with, which is not much. He's estimating about 400 cc's per cheek right now for the amount of fat that i have and told me that gaining weight before the procedure definitely can't hurt because the more fat he has to work with the better. (I will post pics soon). Although i carry a lot of fat in my thighs, I told him I dont want them lipo'd because i'm happy with them just as they are. So he's going to get as much fat as he can from my abdomen, flanks, posterior flanks, and back. So I plan on gaining as much as I can in these 3 months and I know that it will be difficult. Right now im drining a Boost VHC in the morning and another before bed and trying to eat as much as i can.
I look forward to meeting new BBL sister’s from everywhere and I appreciate all advice and information given. I will continue to check-in and update as the days lead up to my NEW BOOTY date… :-)

Today is day 2 and I'm doing pretty good.. I'm taking my pain meds every 3 to 4 hours and still only sleeping about an hour or 2 at a time. I had a little bit of eggs and potatoes for breakfast and had a little soup for lunch and have added pineapple juice to my fluid intake but it gives me crazy heartburn so I don't kno how much more I can take of that. I'm starting to regain my appetite so I'm going to try to have something a bit more filling for dinner... And NOW I kno u all want to kno what it looks like?!?!?.. I have a lot of foam padding everywhere under my garments and I haven't taken my first shower yet so it's kinda hard to tell but it looks and feel like its exactly what I needed for a natural look. I didn't want to be huge I just wanted to add that backside curve with a little poke to these hips, thighs, and boobs that I have.. LMBO .. I just hope and pray it turns out to be what I had in mind... But as of now NO MORE Fredericks of Hollywood padded boy short underwear for me!!! Yaaaayyyy!.. I'll post picks as soon as possible when I remove all of this padding! And thanks to the ladies who prayed for my safe and successful surgery!
I chose Dr. Morea because he was very open and honest at my consultation. He didnt try to sell me any "dreams" which I really respected. He helped me set my mind on realistic goals. His staff was the GREATEST on surgery day!
