Coca cola bottle n e 1 :) - Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Hello there, I am new to this who review thing,...

Hello there,
I am new to this who review thing, but here goes. I am a 26 year old female with a 6yr old and a 2 year old. I have been slightly overweight for the most part of my life. After having my son I weighed in at 180pds. Then I slowly gained weight and weighed in at a whopping 230pds in May 2013 and oh yea I'm 5'3". I have lost 30pds in the last 6 months so now I weigh 200pds. Which she said I should lose 25pds prior to surgery. My goal weight is between 145-160. I know that's still considered "obese" but to me it's just right. I had recently contacted dr. Walkiris, well her assistant Laura. I told her I wanted to get a BBL, TT and Lipo which she quoted me $5350. I only wanted the BBL because I wanted it to get rid of my cellulite. Because my butt is pretty big already I just wanted to even it out a little. But I then decided not to do the BBL and just deal with cellulite for now and just exercise. So I contacted Laura again and told her I just wanted TT, Lipo upper under arms, back and waist when she them quoted the price of $4800. I am pleased with the price but more frightened being that I have never flown anywhere before. Laura also informed me to send a $100 deposit in order to confirm an appointment. It's non refundable but it goes towards your surgery when you arrive for surgery. I am planning to schedule my appointment on March 4th 2014. Sorry if I left anything out but I will follow up with you all. :)

Supplies

Ok well I decided to go ahead and put a few things on layaway for this trip. And man do I thank God and Kmart for layaway...lol. The things I put on layaway were:

*Draw string pants
*Pack of tshirts
*Pack of wife beaters,
*Backpack (I have to do my homework while I'm there)
*Passport wallet
*Pillow and blanket (I always carry one wherever I go)
*U shape pillow
*Button up gown one long sleeve & one short
*Brita filter water bottle (can't carry too much water and don't plan on buying any)
*5 set luggage ( cheaper to get 5pc for $90 then get one PC for $60 )
*Jacket (have no idea what the weather will be like but I just bought a light jacket just incase)
*Small purse (I have mostly large purses and I don't want to have to worry about someone stealing out my large purse at airport or on the plane verses me having a small with long straps to put it in front of me at all times and on my flight back home I don't want to have to carry to many heavy things after surgery.)
*sports bras (there just more comfortable to me)
*headphones
* makeup bag (soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, wipes, mouthwash, deodorant and etc)

I have way more to get but that was just a few things I could out on layaway the other things I will buy as time gets near.

Oh yea

If there's anyone that would like to see about buddying up then let me know. I'm from NC and I plan on doing my surgery in March

P.S

Going to Dr. Walkiris's Robles in Santo Domingo. From Mar 4th-15th.

2days at the hospital and 10 days at the recovery house. From what I've heard men can't stay there, but that's a question I will have to ask them because I'm not sure. But I do know for any extra person you bring they have to pay $55 a night food not included. These are a few things that I thought to mentioned since the crossed my mind.

A few more pics

Wishing and hoping

Wishing and hoping and thinking and praying....lol...well I told my boy friend about me having going through with my surgery and he completly fine with it. But why wouldn't he be? Now I am definitely not telling my family because they can be so negative and cruel about me doing something with my body. Shoot they didn't even want me to get my nose pierced. Wth??? So I'm not telling anyone, I want as little negativity as possible and I will let my Beyoncé body speak for itself when they see me around 4th of July. :) and plus I think everything I tell someone in my family something then I jinx myself and it doesn't happen. Soooooooo I rather keep it to myself and my real-self familia :)

C section

Can some tell me if a tummy tuck feels like a c section or is it worst. I'm asking because I went to school a week after I had my baby due to the fact that I couldn't miss too many more days. So I'm asking now because I want to know when it would be safe for me to go to work. I am standing for the most part. And if I tell them about my surgery then I won't do anything strenuous. I really don't want to miss too many days because I love my money. And then I'm trying to get my CNA II which I need gas to get back and fourth to school. Which starts 4 weeks after my surgery. Any donations...lol...jk. Just an answer would be helpful :)

New Years

Hello real self familia,
I just wanted to wish you all a happy New Years and be safe :)

Taking someone with me

Can anyone tell me what I need to do if I bring my boyfriend with me to dr. Robles. I don't think he can stay at virginias recovery house. Where can we stay together so that he could stay with me if I bring him?

Change of Plans

I was recently going to try to do my surgery in March. But now i have decided to do my surgery in May. I have been trying to get into the LPN program and have since failed to get in not knowing that i was missing a Math. But its all good because i am not going to let that stop me so i am now going to just go and do CNA II until i get this Math out of the way. Well i was told that i cant' miss any days, which is fine. So i am going to do my surgery after the class is over on April 24. I wanted to give myself a little time to prepare before i did my surgery so i will be going on April 28th or May 5th. Im not quite sure yet. I want to do this surgery sooner but i prefer my education first, so i will have to put my surgery on hold for a couple of months. Well that is all, wish me luck with passing this class. And i will still keep you all updated with everything. :)

patiently waiting

Man o man how time is flying by already. this new year isn't wasting any time. I am so ready to pass these classes and go and take this trip of a lifetime. I am so excited it doesn't make sense how much i daydream about what I will look like in a few months. I have a boyfriend and i am a jealous person (which my jealousy mostly came after i had my second child and gained almost 60 pounds) I hate seeing girls with these perfect bodies and the porn-stars with their humongous booties...lol g wiz. I know i wasn't too sure about having a BBL but if my boyfriend doesn't go (because my little girl is in first grade and i don't want her to miss two or more weeks of school) Im going to ask him to give me the extra money for me to get a BBL too. :) im sure he might want to get married after that, because Im sure he dont want to pay for my butt and i leave him....LOL...just kidding. But now i am considering doing that. I am going to start my iron next month because i want it to be a good as it can get so i can get the BBL, TT, Lipo on back, waist and maybe hips. i thought about getting it on my arms but i figured i can work my arms out instead of working out my butt and not getting the BBL. I also have the implanon birth control which is implanted in my upper left arm. so i don't want to have to take that out just so i can get lipo on my arms, then get pregnant and waste my money...LOL. that would be so pointless. Soooooooooo I can just do tricep and bicep exercises for the most part. Well i have to do some homework so i will Talk To You All Later :)

Been a while

Well for the simple fact that I change my date until April I haven't had much to really say on realself. I am in the process of losing weight right now. Mostly working in my arms, butt and thighs. I want my body to pretty much be complete when I get this tummy tuck done. I was curious if anyone knew that if I do sit up and ab exercises will my abs show up better after tummy tuck or would ab exercises be pointless until I get my surgery. I just became a fan of Buffy the body when I watch her Bodynomics workout videos. She has the body I want. I don't think I want my butt to be as big as hers but for the most part that what I want. :)

Kool. Where are you located?

Also I was told that your surgery will have to be between Monday and Thursday which is why I chose the 28th. Because I wants to go on the 25th but that's a Friday. But that's just what I was told. Not sure if they didn't mention that to you or not.

I told Laura my job wouldn't let me off, so she said Friday or even Saturday! I'll check with her just to be sure. I'm in NY :-) where about are you?

I think you should do the butt lift, if only to raise and and shape it more. I am getting it but no donk..lol I kept going back and forth on it. Since they are lipoing and there is plenty of fat why not. I am coming back in the summer for round 2 but I might not have enough then for what I want. And if I want to pump it up some more I can do that too. Good luck in your classes. It is good you are doing the iron now. I really should have started along time ago when I was even thinking about doing this...

The thing is those pics don't really show how big my butt really is and it seems to high. I just want a little added to the bottom to make it round. That cellulite is what kills the shape of my butt. I wonder if the fat transfer would get rid of some of the cellulite? What are you going to do when you go back for round 2? Wanted a breast lift but I haven't seen too many on realself that look really good without paying a high price. And Yea I figured I would start vitamins kind of early then that way I should be in the clear when the time comes :) and thanks!

My butt is wide not big. I want it rounded out some. I am going to learn how to say, no dunk, very little projection, just round it out some in spanish. I don't want to wake up with a huge butt. i want a thigh lift. with lipo...that is going to be round 2. I don't know about this.... I don't like where they place the scare. It seems it would be to hard to keep clean. Someone said with the tummy tuck it pulls the skin on the front of your thighs up some, it might be enough.

@Limicah1 I really think we have the same body issues. I havr cellulite issues in the middle of my but that affetcs the roundness off it. Also Imy butt sits on my back. I hate this look b/c it looks too high up top and my legs are to long for that. Im 5'8 so Imagine that... Im going to try to take pics to show my concern areas right b4 my sx..
  • Reply
Yea I wonder if the Lipo would round it out or if they can take some fat off the top to lower my butt or not. And I also thought about buying boy shorts underwear verses the regular underwear because I think that's what's putting the crease in my thighs and butt. But yea. I think I'm gonna go for it!

Yea dr robles speaks english, and Im sure when I go to my consultation she'll understand exactly what it is Im wanting. Then I will go to an ass ps if I need to afterwards. I personally dont feel she can give any good ass correction.If that makes sense..For now its step UNO!!!

Cna class is a breeze hun. U will see what I mean. As far as lpn entrance exam math. It could be a bit challenging but only if u let it. If I remember right(unless things have changed) pre algebra and fractions is all u need for that particular exam as far as the math is concerned, with the exception of addition, subtraction,and multiplication. Correct me if im wrong, things may have change. But im telling u remain calm, study hard and u got this...

I have my CNA I and Phlebotomy so im praying the CNA II isnt too bad. and I wish I would've known sooner about my math because I could've had it already but the lady said I didnt need anything else....but o well hopefully I can get in next semester. thanks Ms. dukes217 :)
