I've been researching this surgery since '09. I first just wanted lipo, then I heard the unwanted fat could be injected into your back side and I was all for it! lol
Like many of us I'm confused over which doctor to choose.


About :
5' 1 and 3/4 lol
165 lb (by surgery I want to be 145)

Measurements
36
34
45

Finally, after considering several docs (in the US and abroad) I'm ready to get this done. I saw Dra. yily results from a patient on mmh and fell in love with her sculpting. Received my qoute from Yily for only $2900 for BBL. So im ready to place deposit down but im the type,that like to weigh all options. So I've requested a quote from Dr. lorenzo ortiz, dr. nelson rubio and dra. Walkiris Robles. Just waiting to hear from them.

If anyone has experience with these docs, please share!

After much thought and being on the fence between two docs (Lorenzo Ortiz and Yily) I finally decided that I will be going to Dra. Yily De los santos in December for my surgery.

My Yily Experience I had surgery with Yily on...

My Yily Experience

I had surgery with Yily on Saturday, March 23, 2013. I arrived in Santo Domingo on Friday, March 22, 2013. Yira (Yily assistant) had Junior pick me up from the airport. After getting out of customs, buying my visitor pass and exchanging some money, it took about 45 minutes. Junior was outside with sign with my name on it and Dra Yily De Los Santos on it. I was supposed to go into the hospital to have all my labs done on Friday but after my flight was delayed and getting out of the airport it was too late so Junior dropped my mom and I off at the Marriott.
DAY OF SURGERY
I arrived at CIPLA at 6:30am. It was six other women in the waiting area. However, it was only two of us waiting for Yily. Yily arrived about 7:30am, greeted us with a hug and a kiss and we were off to placing our belongings in her office because our rooms weren’t ready at that point. Yira explained to us that we would go and have our labs done while Yily followed up with her other patients. I had my blood drawn, EKG, XRAY and I also had to see the pulmonary doctor because I have asthma. The pulmonary doctor came to my room checked my breathing, asked some questions about my last attack and checked the medicine that I currently use for asthma. SIDE NOTE: Ladies if you have asthma continue taking your medication and make your surgeon aware.
I was supposed to be the first surgery of the day but since I had to be checked by the pulmonary doctor my suite mate went first, which was fine by me, I wanted to make sure that my health was in order before any surgery took place. So the doctor gave me the green light and I was ecstatic! Before I went off to surgery they gave me a 15 minute breathing treatment just to be on the safe side.
About two and a half hours passed and it was my time. One of the nurses came in and gave me the blue pill and helped me change into my little blue robe, hair net and footie. Not sure what the blue pill is supposed to do but I wasn’t sleepy at all.
About thirty minutes later they wheeled my suite mate into the room, got her settled and it was my turn. As I was being wheeled pass the nurses’ station, Yily smiled and said “Hola” and I just smiled and waved.
I entered the operating room and one assistant took my hand laid it on a wood board and placed the needle in my hand (I have small veins so that’s the only place any doc can place a needle in me). She started my IV and I was still lying there just looking into the light. She then place the medicine in my IV and ladies I don’t remember anything afterwards lol!
I woke up with the chills and singing a church song (I’m sure my suite mate wanted to knock me out lol)
I must say the staff at CIPLA was very attentive and every time I called; they came. They gave us pain meds like every three to four hours. Since I’m an asthmatic every time they gave me pain meds they gave me a breathing treatment.
You won’t eat until early morning …so you will be starved but my nurse would give my fruit punch.
In the morning, you will have nurses that will come in a clean you up, take your urine catheter out and dump the fluid from your drains. Yily will come in and ask how you feel, write your prescription and give you instructions and your follow up appointment. Since I was staying at a hotel she asked for the room number and phone number of the hotel. She called to check on me to make sure I was feeling fine.
The first few days are a bit rough but it was worth it.

I will be having my follow up appointment tomorrow.

I emailed dr yily for a quote. I am looking to be Yilified next month January 2014. I pray she has an opening available. I was originally gonna go with dr. Bello but there is something about her that I just can't put my finger on that is shady. I know of three people who went to her. One caught an infection, the other scar busted after waking up throwing up. I must say though, bello breast job is AMAZING but i don't trust her TT. I feel like she isn't doing it herself. So I've been reaching yily and I have made my mind up to go with her. Please Cosmetic Gods, allow her to have an opening for me January 2014!!! :)
