Scheduled for BBL Dec 6 2013, Having Second Thoughts About my Doctor! Realistic Expectations? - Richmond, VA

Hi ladies! I am 5'4, 150lbs, 23 years old and have...

Hi ladies! I am 5'4, 150lbs, 23 years old and have wanted this procedure since I was 15. I have always been square, with a large upper body and skinny legs, with virtually NO butt. I had a baby Aug 2012 and had gained a lot of weight which gave me the bubble butt I always wanted. But of course, as I lost all the baby weight my butt was the first thing to go. I am SO excited that I am finally able to have this surgery. HERE'S MY PROBLEM... I did extensive research on the Doctor himself (Dr.Zinsser in Richmond, Virginia). He had great reviews. He was the third doctor I had a consultation with and even though he is almost 2 hours away, I was very pleased with his professionalism and kind staff. He showed me numerous photos of previous BBL procedures he had done and I was much more impressed with him then anyone else I had met with. So, I decided to schedule my procedure. My concern is, after finding this site and reading so many reviews from other people, I have found that a BBL is not a one-size-fits-all surgery. While my doctor has many reviews for breast implants, tummy tucks etc, I haven't found many reviews on his BBL procedures. I want a larger butt and smaller stomach, but also a pleasant somewhat curvy figure ..Not Nicki Minaj curvy like a lot of ladies desire, I just want to keep the natural curves I already have. I have attached a few photos of my current body shape and a photo I found of another BBL procedure with a female who has a similar shape to my own showing what I'm hoping to expect! Any advice or comments are appreciated :) Thank you!

Hi there, I have been researching board certified plastic surgeons for years but most recently within the last few months. I initially had selected Dr. J Curves in Sawamee, GA and have even paid my non-refundable $100.00 consultation fee and had even booked my flight until today after having second thoughts. I have now selected another board certified plastic surgeon located in New York, New York and I will be having my free over the phone consultation soon. I am hoping that he will be able to perform my surgery before X'mas. I have spoken with several plastic surgeons and was still undecided until recently. The BBL is something that has to be mastered. The shape of the buttocks area is done by hand and one really has to know what he is doing in an effort to accomplish that curvy figure. So, take your time, continue your research and try to select the best surgeon with proven results out there. Good luck!

33 DAYS UNTIL MY BBL! (update)

Heeeey! I want to start by thanking those who read and responded to my previous post. I really appreciate all the support :). No one else other than my mom knows I'm getting this surgery! so it's great to have support from other ladies who are in the same boat. I have been reflecting on my decision to have a BBL with Dr.Z... and while I would love to go in search of the best possible Dr for this particular surgery I'm just not in a position where I can travel far. I was pleased with the photos I saw of Dr.Zinsser's previous BBL procedures, and I have comfort in knowing he's less than 2 hours away and said is willing to meet with me any time I need to after my surgery. Soooo.. at this point I just want to let myself get excited! I'm confident that even if my result isn't as drastic as I would like, I will still be very pleased with my new body.. but I feel I have pretty realistic expectations. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S FINALLY HERE ! (well, almost) I've been looking into this surgery for almost 8 years and I can't believe this is actually happening! I'm already starting to window shop for clothes I'll be able to wear. I've always put so much effort into trying to find clothes that accent my butt while hiding my gut at the same time, so almost 80% of the store was off limits smh... but not anymore ;) am counting down the days! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :D
