Brazilian Butt Lift and Tummy Tuck with Dr.Hegg - San Leandro, CA

Hi everyone, I've been interested in getting a...

Hi everyone, I've been interested in getting a tummy tuck for a while, and I said what the hell, if I get that I might as well fix the other areas too. So I decided to get the bbl and tt together. This site really helped me in choosing my surgeon!!!!!! I called in Jan 2012 to schedule an appt for a consultation after reading a review here and seeing the before and after results. I also looked up the doctor and I found nothing but good things about him.......Well it seems that he is in extreme high demand because there wasn't an appt available to April! Well between that time and now I've had 2 other consultations and Dr.Hegg was the best! He's very confident and we seem to be on the same page. That was important to me. I'm a mother of 3. So since having kids I haven't been happy with my tummy. I don't have a a lot of stretch marks but I just can't seem to get rid of that belly fat And loose skin.I was hoping I wouldn't need a tummy tuck, but the doctors said my skin would probably sag after if I just did lipo.....I don't wanna take that chance because I'm getting a huge discount on the tummy tuck because I'm doing both together. Well I was hoping to have my Kim Kardash body by the summer but the doctor is already booked till September......so I Scheduled my surgery date for Sept.4th 2012. I had to pay a $500 deposit to book the appt (this seemed to be the average as with other doctors) I don't live in that area so the receptionist suggested that I stay in a hotel near by for the first week because the doctor makes a house call 2 days after to make sure everything is going good, and he has to give me an injection. She said I wouldn't be in any condition to commute to the office so that would be the best bet... I'm really excited!!!! I'm going to try my best to post updates and pictures so my info can help anyone else interested in this type of surgery. I decided to post my own review because most of the girls I seen were pretty slim before their surgery and complained about needing to gain weight. (I wish!) Well I'm 5'1 and I weigh 153 right now. I would consider my self chubby or thick right now. I was told that my results will be better if I lose some weight before that surgery, so that's what I'm going to be working on till then...... I'm a open book so if anyone has any questions feel free to ask!

I know what you mean having kids makes it really hard to lose the belly. I tried everything and mine would not take off. I am also getting a tummy tuck but in December. Well Good luck on your surgery! :) You are going to look fabulous.

hi everyone. I'm posting some current pictures of my body. Omg it is really eye opening to see them! I didn't realizes how out of shape I have gotten!!!!! I'm sooooo disapointed with my self! I have been trying to diet since the begining of the year, but as you can see I haven't been doing to well :( hopefully these eye opening pictures will give me the willpower and motivation to succeed. I'm trying to lose at least 10 pounds before my surgery. I've tried pills, eating healthier, and a little exercise but I have little willpower to stay away from cookies, cakes, frappuccinos, and carbs!!! They're so delicious. I will also try to post some pictures of my body before I became pregnet with my last child (2010) I wieghed about 135-140 at that time. I was thick, but in all the right places. Right now I weigh 151 (but I look more like 180!) I really hope I can lose the weight!!!! I will keep you all posted.

Hey everyone, sorry I haven't posted an update in...

Hey everyone, sorry I haven't posted an update in a while. I've been really busy!!!! Well I didn't get my surgery in sept after all. I felt I wasn't ready (with my wieght & the holidays right around the cornner) So I rescheduled for late Feb this year. I was able to finally lose some wieght. I wieght about 140-137 right now. I still feel fat! :( Even though my pre-pregnancy jeans fit, and are a lil loose it just doesn't feel the same as before. So I took some body pics today. If I stand different ways my body looks better but I wanted to show my flaws. I promise I will update after my surgery! Good luck all! XOXO

Hey all today is my pre-op appt. I'm very excited!...

Hey all today is my pre-op appt. I'm very excited! My surgery is scheduled for March 5th. I already booked a room at the comfort Inn in Oakland. (Its 8 mins from the office) I found a really good deal online. The room also has a sofa bed, microwave, and frig. The hotel has a gym and indoor spa. Its really nice for the price! ($56 a night) I was gonna go with the Hilton garden Inn but it would of cost me over $100 more and the room doesn't even have a frig or micro. Well we're almost there, so I'll keep you all posted! And thanks to all you girls for the good wishes and support! :)

Good Luck Babe. You're going to look amazing. Please post pics after. I had mine done with Salama and looking to have a tummy tuck next year. I need to look into your dr also since I have family all out there and originally from Nor Cal. I may call the office 2mrw to see. Then that way my mom & pops can take care of me while recovering, lol. No but for real, good luck and make sure to drink lots of fluids afterwards... believe me.

Hey girls, so I had my surgery on Tuesday. I'm kinda drugged up right now so I'm gonna keep it short. Everything went well. The Doc only gave me 800 cc. He said that was all I needed. First night of recovery was torture!!!! Second day was ok but third got hard again. Today I think is the best day so far. It's getting easier to get in and out of bed. I brought 2 long pillows and a boppy pillow for sitting and a memory foam pad to lay on the bed. It helps a lot. Pain pills are my best friend right now. Lol now I'm just waiting my drain to stop so the doc can take them out and I can go home. I haven't taken my gerttle off at all. I wish I could cuz its super tight! Well that's all right now. I'll post pics in a week or so.

Adding a pic of the best way I've found to rest without putting too much pressure on my butt. It's basically 2 couch cushions spaced out about one foot with a 3 " memory foam on top with pillow bellow my head and legs. Hope this is helpful....

Day 6. Ugh! Everything is still such a challenge!...

Day 6. Ugh! Everything is still such a challenge! 2 very good tips......1) if you have a cough even a little one, RESCHEDULE! If anyone around you has a cough, reschedule! #2) DRINK OUT OF A STRAW! Its easier to sip wrong when you drink from a cup or bottle then a straw.
Coughing with a fresh tummy tuck is the worst thing EVER!!! It feels like someone is gutting you from inside. So hopefully that's helpful....

Omg Omg, I just got some shocking News! Dr.Hegg...

Omg Omg, I just got some shocking News! Dr.Hegg has died :,( I couldn't believe it!!!! After my surgery he told me he was going on vacation the following week so I'd have to schedule my follow up for when he comes back. (Which was suppose to be today) Well Last Friday his secretary called me to tell me he hadn't made it back from his trip and I'd have to see another doctor (a friend of Dr.Hegg) for my follow up.
I thought Dr.Hegg was just having too much fun and decided to stay longer. I was even joking about it.....
Well today at my appt with Dr.Iverson is when I found out that my Doctor is gone forever! :( its sooooooo sad! He was such a nice gifted man! R.I.P DR.STANLEY HEGG.....You will truly be missed!

11 week update

Hey Its been a while but I'm back......I'm going to try to hurry this up because I got to hit the gym today! lol Well I think I'm almost fully recovered. I've started to work out and I feel good. I do still have some stiffness at the bottom of my tummy but that's about it. As for my results :/ I'm happy but not completely satisfied. If Dr.Hegg was still alive, I'd for sure do a round 2!!! I cant afford to start over with another doctor. :( I'm happy that I have a flat tummy now but I was expecting my waist to be smaller and my butt to be bigger. I started working out now. As for my scar, its healing well. Ive been using mederma for about a month now. If anyone has any questions, just ask.....Thanks for stopping by. :) p.s. i'm posting some pics I took today.

Thank you girl! I wish I could of known for sure I wouldn't need a tummy tuck! It made recovery way more painful. But I wasn't sure. I had 2 consults and they both said I should get it...I think I should of tried doctor Salma! lol

Just adding some pics.

I haven't taken any body pictures lately but when I do I will post them. Over all, I'm about 65% happy with my results. :/ Like I said before, I was expecting my butt to be bigger, and my waist to be smaller. When I'm sitting I still have a gut, but my tummy looks really good when I'm standing! My Hunny is really disappointed! :( He says I look the same as before. lol I guess he was expecting my body to look like Coco. (Ice T's wife) lol Well that's all for now.......

Hey girl! You look great in the pictures! I am about 5 months post op with Dr Hegg and kind of feel the same way as you. I knew my stomach wouldn't be perfect as I opted not to get a tummy tuck, but I still thought I'd have a smaller waist and a bigger butt! I felt like it kept shrinking Even past the 2 month mark! It's also frustrating not being able to discuss our final results with our Dr. I try to be positive though, it is still an improvement than before that I wouldn't have been able to achieve through exercise. Good luck!

Thank you. :) Yes I wish very much that he was still alive. I'd defiantly do a round 2!!!! I read on his website that a round 2 would be largely discounted too....lol But oh well at least my butt is a lil lifted now and my tummy is flat. Those are big pluses for me. Post some before and after pics if you can. It's hard to find after pics here of women that get the bbl that have had kids. It still lingers in my mind, maybe I didn't really need that tummy tuck....lol Well thanks for the comment, and good luck to you as well. :)

Update photos......I've gained weight :(

I don't have a lot of time but I'm adding recent photos and I'll try to add more details when I can.
