Growing up i was always a chubby girl. I was bullied about my weight so I started crazy dieting I lost 50 pounds then got married and pregnant gained back my 50 pounds then lost them again lol ...so I always had natural curves since I am (Latina) so I just hope all comes out as planned I hope I'm prepared and I've created this account because I would love to know what should I buy for this journey and what will help with surgery(: thanks for reading
Welcome and congratulations to you! What made u choose this PS? Are you seeking projection or a natural look? Research research research! Take your time! Best wishes!

Hi thank u I'm very exited (: I'm seeking projection I picked this dr because I seen a couple before and after at his office that were kind of what I'm looking for but I think I still want to go talk to another dr.. I got my breast done with dr Bruno in Beverly Hills last yr but he said he wouldn't do a bbl on me because of not enough fat

Trying to cancel my app with my dr

I'm trying to cancel my surgery date with my dr because I scheduled for surgery with dr Hughes by the way he's the sweetest and knows exactly what he's talking about!! The only bad thing is my old dr the consultant is acting dumb by trying to make me go in to cancel my surgery date which seems a bit dumb does anyone know how that works thanks!!
Wanted to stop by to make sure I follow your journey. Do you have any documentation from your precious dr? They should have their cancellation/refund policy there. Also you should send Kirsty (community manager a message to change your Dr on your review. Good luck! And feel free to ask me any questions.

3 days away

So I'm 3 days away from my sx I'm feeling a bit nervous :/ I know everything b ok ...I'm just trying to make sure I have everything is ready before Thursday, on a good note my hubby was able to get the days off so he can take care of me(: my fam is very supportive so that's also a good thing ...on a bad note I've been cramping I can feel my period is coming :( how does that work if I'm on my period during surgery that's weird does anyone have experience with that?
Good luck tomorrow!
Reply
Thank you (:

I've been MIA for a few days but I can see Kirsty changed your Dr. :-) You will be ok, I'm glad your hubby will be able to be with you and help, not to mention that your family is very supportive. I've seen about 2-3 girls that have gotten their period shortly before sx, that is fine you can still have sx, I think you just have to wear a tampon. But if you do get it make sure you let Dr. Hughes know just in case he has other instrutions for you.

Pics

A few pics I can't see anything yet because I have so much padding with a binder and a girdle hopefully tomorrow when I shower I can get a better pic dr Hughes told my hubby he injected 1000 cc so we will see I wanted more but I still got a lot only time will tell that de is a genius!!
Hope the pain has gotten better, 1000ccs is really good considering you didn't have much fat. I'm sure he did an excellent job, can't wait to see your progress :-)

Does anyone know

Hi does anyone know if I can take off the foam under my binder already? I ran out of the blue paper they gave me what can I use in replacement I seen some girls wear a white to shirt? Also I'm healing very we'll my butty lost some volume but that's ok because I was very swollen it's looking better as days go by I'm still on pain med finishing up my antibiotics and keeping up with bromelain and arnica ....sleeping is getting a bit easier my neck gets stuff at times but my moma massages it so she makes me feel better ... I keep getting a burning sensation that comes from within my skin I don't know if that's the feeling most of u lady's get it comes from my lipoed areas, my butty is still hard lol but I'm able to walk better my thighs feel much better hardly any pain since at fist that's what hurt the most because of the lipo on those areas but anyways girls I'm doing fine I'll post a pic soon
Good luck on an easy relaxing recovery

Hi dolls just updating with a new pic I'm doing fine my first post op visit is tomorrow(:

With pants

Post op 6 days
Your booty looks good in those sweats! I missed your latest updates, I'm not sure what blue papers you got, are those the absorbing pads? You didn't need to wear those anymore if you weren't leaking, which by now you shouldn't be anymore. You are supposed to continue using the foam for the entire time you have the binder becuase it provides extra compression, and you should also be wearing a tshirt under your garment, if you havent' been wearing one make sure you take one with you tomorrow so Olga can put it on for you when she puts your binder back on. As far as the burning sensation, that is normal, you'll get that for a while, I'm 3 months post and I still get it (on my flanks and lower/mid back). Good luck tomorrow!
Reply
Omg really I thought I still had to wear the absorbing paper I ran out but I haven't been leaking I don't think I did but I've been changing it until yesterday I ran out and wore the same one do u know how I can wear the foam pads because they are sticky won't they get stuck to my skin? I also heard I'm supposed to wear foam in mi thigh section since he removed fat there but they didn't put any so I'm a bit confused on that I only have a faja but it doesn't even fit tight from the leg thigh area.... Thanks I'll make sure to take a t shirt I hope everything goes good tomorrow for me I'll post another picture I've been just relaxing lazy to take off all this stuff lol

Post op

Hi lady's so my first post op went we'll did anyone else only see Olga for post p visits or did Hughes come in ? I didn't see him today but Olga showed me my before pics and my god I love my new bod everything went we'll I have no fluid but like most of u who had surgery with Hughes I was wearing the binder wrong lol Olga also said no to bandages and to buy iron and a multivitamin lol more pills to my collection so anyway hope u lady's have a beautiful day and a happy early valentines day enjoy!!! I'll post pics soon (:
So happy to hear you didn't have fluid despite wearing the binder wrong. Make sure you wear it right from now on so you can stop wearing it soon, if you don't have fluid again next post op I'm sure you'll be approved to stop wearing it. All the post ops are with Olga, unless there is something wrong or you request to see Dr. Hughes, I haven't seen him since my sx, I only saw him for a few seconds during my first post op, and that's because I asked if I could see him really quick. Can't wait to see more pics :-)
Reply
Oh really that's so weird I had sx with dr Bruno for my breast augmentation and he was always the one who would come in and check me lol I guess they work differently lol... I know hopefully I can the binder is annoying :/ also I have to go back Monday to switch off my griddle for a new one she said to purchase one so I'm gonna look for the Mariae u recommended (:

This pic was taken 4 days post op
You look great in your last pic!! Congrats on the new butt! I think avoiding salt may help with your face. I had a salty dinner the other night and noticed major swelling the next day. Haven't had any salt since and I'm back to normal size (not so much in the lipoed areas, which are of course still swollen cuz I'm only 5 days post op).
Reply
Thanks girl! (: how are you feeling? Congrats on your new butty aswell ..yes my swelling has gone down ever since I started drinking the bromelain capsules but instill have cankles lol and since I'm still wearing the foam and binder plus girdle I feel so fat like I'm pregnant lol I really hope I can take it off soon

You go girl. Looking amazing how are you feeling??

2 weeks post tomorrow

Tomorrow I'll be 2 weeks post op and I still feel a little swollen but getting better in search for a new griddle this one is fitting big a bit confused not sure if to buy it a big size and then just have it tailored the one I'm wearing is a medium. But anyway so far so good stopped drinking Vicodin finally I sleep better at night, had to start driving my mommy duties call for me especially since my princess has been sick with fever took her to emergency room so I had to carry her but it didn't hurt and I just didn't sit I layed next to her on my side but I'm feeling much better
You are looking amazing girl!! Happy healing!!

Your results look so good! I hope to have surgery with him in April! Just nervous because I'm planning to get a tt and a bbl! I hope I will be in good hands with this doc!
Reply
Hi thank you (: omg really I don't know how that will work but I have a cousin who had a tt and bbl at the same time I think she would lay on her back with pillows elevated because u can't lay on your stomach but you'll be in good hands he is a very nice and talented dr!
Reply
Hi hun, I'm most likely getting my bbl with Dr Hughes I was wondering how much did you have to give for the down payment? And how soon did you get your sx date?

Sizing for griddles

Does anyone know what size in a griddle I should purchase ? My butty measures 45 inch as of now should I buy a large or XL?
Most garments run different in size, check the sizing chart for the garment you plan on getting. For many the waist size is more important. Xl is definitely too large, again depending on the garment I would get a medium or large.
Reply
Thanks mesan(: I'm thinking of purchasing leonisa a friend of mine said it worked really good for her so she suggest I might b a large but Olga said to look into small I just don't want my butty to b suffocating lol
Reply
A girl recently posted on my review, she has a Leonisa garment and loves it. If Olga told you a small you should consider it or at least a medium. Your butt won't suffocate lol. The one this girl has has lighter material on the booty area.

New new

Hi girls I would like to say that I ordered a faja the other day a new one that I seen is recommended by a couple doctors down in Mexico and as soon as the ups man got here I ripped up my package and tried on my faja I swear ladies I'm in love this faja is amazing it's soft from the inside and tight from the outside the only thing is I was a little rebel and when against the recommended size on their chart I went ahead bad ordered a small when in the chart it says I'm a 2xl lol I knew that would be too loose from my waist area but it fits perfect I really recommend it so comfty none of that burning irritating feeling and it's super easy to put on I'll post pics of the packaging I ordered from the pink room style 11047 size small

Hey ladies wanted to update my review,, so the other day I had a little conversation with dr Hughes and he mentioned how some people try to discredit him from being board certified! I think it's sad and Wrong what do these people get out of it? Anyway I just had to bring that up because it bothers me also that they say he gives square butts!! Really we'll my ass ain't square such haters towards dr Hughes! But any who I got his back lol ... So the other day I went for my massage and I ended up buying me some juvaderm lol and I'm loving my results I had it done by Anna she works at Boris med spa she is very sweet they are all very sweet there I feel very pleased by the staff there they are on top of their game lol so here are a couple pictures of my new lips

Haven't been on here updating but I've been busy with work and all bit I'm still very happy with my results (: things are pretty much back to normal I still can't feel my back or flanks they are numb... I was fitting in a small size griddle now I'm xs and it's fitting a bit loose from my waist so I'm thinking of purchasing a different girdle smaller size my butty is still big it's rounding up and haven't lost any projection or volume so that's a plus(:

Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon

I chose dr Hughes after seeing some of his before and afters, after I met him I knew he could deliver the results I wanted. Other drs told me that I consulted with only told me they can't get 400cc in each butt cheek and Hughes gave me 1000cc. I gave him 5 stars because he is an amazing dr great attitude and you can tell he loves what he does as a surgeon and he is sure of how he can transform your body, so I recommend Hughes to all you beautiful lady's who are looking to enhance your curves (:
