Hello there ! I've been lurking on this...

Hello there !
I've been lurking on this website and have been considering surgery for quite some time and finally decided to take the next step. It always seemed a little drastic to me but every time i look in the mirror i hate what i see, well body-wise. Im 20 years old and I was never a chubby person up until now and i absolutely hate it. As a former athlete i've worked out, i've dieted but nothing seems to work and i've given up.
I chose Dr Yily based on her amazing contouring. She seems to give all of her patients such a womanly shape. Right now I'm very happy with my breasts but my stomach is another story. I've developed a muffin top and over the course of about 6 months absolutely none of my clothes fit me. I probably havent worn jeans in almost a year. I've been told I have a nice round butt, but due to my stomach it's not as big as i would like it to be. So i've choosen to have a brazilian butt lift with fat grafting to the butt and liposuction between my thighs. I definitely want an inner thigh gap. I'm a little apprehensive about the inner thigh lipo since i've heard its painful but i'm hoping its worth it.
As far as traveling to DR for surgery i'm not too nervous considering i'm dominican and travel there pretty often. OH & i would like to personally thank those who've documented their experiences on this website, definitely helps more than you guys think.
So i started my journey about a month ago with Dr Yily. I basically filled out the form on her website and submitted it. But after no response for about 2 weeks i decided to directly email both her emails and BAM she responded within a week. Emailing her directly would definitely be the way to go. She also seems to respond faster if you email her in spanish. If you need help with translating i'll be glad to help just shoot me a message.
She quoted me $3250 for "fat grafting to buttock, BBL, liposuction of abdomen, armpit, back, flanks,waist & lipo to inner thigh - It also includes 1 compression garment, pre-operatory tests ( TTP, HIV, Hbs, HCV, BASAL GLYCEMIA, GLYCEMIA, UREA, SERUM CREATININE, FULL BLOOD COUNT, VDRL, BLOOD TYPE Y RH) , cardiologist (EKG), anesthesiologist (epidural block), clinic fees (room, operating room, nurses, IVs, 3 meals, surgical assistants, etc). -The procedures will depend on your hemoglobin levels.
The lymphatic massages cost 31$USD each session (10 sessions)
If you want to buy a second garment, the price is 140$USD
In case you need a blood transfusion, the price is 250$USD
The compression sleeves cost 80$USD
Dose of medication
If you want to buy the medication in your country
-HEPARIN 40 MG: Subcutaneous injection 1 per day for 8 days.
-CLAVULIN 1GR: Take 1 every 24 hours for 10 days.
-DICLOFENAC 50MG: Take 2 tablets together the first 3 days every 6 hours, then at 4th day take 1 every 8 hours for 10 days.
-OMEPRAZOL 20 MG: Take 1 every 12 hours for 10 days.
-VITAMIN C 500 MG: Take 1 tablet every 12 hours for a month.
-FERROUS SULFATE: Take 1 tablet every 12 hours for 30 days.
-FOLIC ACID 10 MG: Take 2 tablets per day for 15 days.
-THROMBOCID CREAM: Apply on the operated area 2 times a day for 10 days.
Okay so i've been doing my research on the medications listed here and im not too certain about the heparin. It has been known to cause bleeding if it has too much effect on your blood. I feel as if this can slow down healing and can possibly cause more bruising so i will be looking into finding an alternative. If i cant then im going to have to go with the heparin. The heparin itself you really can't buy in the states so that one you're going to have to buy in DR.
-CLAVULIN is an antibiotic which contains amoxicillin, so if youre allergic to amoxicillin you're going to have to find an alternative. I'm personally not allergic to amoxicillin so this should be okay & also this is one of those that you're gonna need a prescription for in the states so this one im going to need to buy in DR as well.
-DICLOFENAC is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) taken to reduce inflammation and as an analgesic reducing pain in certain conditions. So this would be mainly for pain and inflammation lol Duh. Diclofenac also requires a prescription in the states, soo this has to be bought in DR as well.
-OMEPRAZOL is an over the counter. You can basically find it in any pharmacy. It also known as Prilosec, but the generic versions have the same exact ingredients so buying the generic version can save you some money.
-FERROUS SULFATE- is basically iron. so iron pills lol.
-VITAMIN C -self explanatory definitely buy here not in DR you can save on the 250 for the medicine.
-FOLIC ACID- you can also buy here in the states no prescription. Its available almost everywhere.
THROMBOCID CREAM- you can probably find online somewhere but i think im going to buy it in DR.
Before surgery Yily recommends that before surgery you:
- It is VERY important to have a good hemoglobin level to have the surgery done. Also i recomend you to
see a cardiologist few days before coming.
-You should start taking vitamins, B complex, ferrous sulfate, folic acid, vitamin C.
-Stop taking drugs
-You should have a doctor or nurse that able to drain your liquids when you get back to your country.
-Your hemoglobin levels have to be more than 12 gm/ dl.
-You should have the tests done there to be sure that you can have surgery. The tests are: Creatinine, glucose, full blood count, hematocrit, EKG, radiography
-You need to bring loose clothes, a shirt to wear under the garment, baby wipes and maternity pads.
-You have to bring any identification to the clinic (ID, Passport or driving license) To have the admission done.
Yily has me down for May 27th. As far as the deposit goes, her western union and paypal accounts have been frozen due to all the money going into the accounts. They probably think she's a drug dealer or something lol. Anywho I have not sent in my deposit but she did tell me im down for may 27th so tomorrow its going to be the first thing I do. After that I plan on booking my flight and calling JMspa. Im thinking of staying for about 5 days and either moving to a hotel or just coming back home i haven't decided yet. As far as pictures go, i havent worked up the courage to post my pictures yet but that can change who knows. Overall the excitement is killing me and absolutely can't wait. Also if you're going around may 26th message me so we can be buddies ! ill be leaving from NY.

So, i've already started to buy what i need so i decided to take a picture and share a list of what i believe i'm going to need. Most of these items were purchased at target.

- antibacterial moist wipes
- baby wipes
- feminine wipes
-vitaminB12( to help absorb the iron)
- pain relieving spray
- alcohol wipes
-allergy relief pills
-antibiotic ointment cream
-baby powder ( to use inside garment, i feel as if it will help it slide on easier? lol idk)

So i've been doing more shopping and found a great...

I must warn you guys that the quality is not the best but for post surgery loose fitting clothing that might get stained, i think this website is perfect. They ship directly from china. Another good website is
but i prefer sammydress better. They also ship from china as well. and the shipping time isnt bad at all.
Also I'm bringing oxycodone to DR because im hearing the pain killers they give you dont really do much pain killing lol. Hopefully this will make recovery more comfortable.
For now im just really anxious and doing extreme lurking on this website just to get the most information possible.
and im considering putting up before pictures but idk havent worked up the courage yet
Finally decided to put up before pics

Okay so i haven't updated in a while so i thought...

So I've been doing alot more research and decided to get a surgery vitamin kit. I got the make me heal kit
this one was cheaper than the vitamedica one and basically had the same ingredients.
In addition to the products i already bought, i made another list of more things im going to need to make recovery more comfortable. Some of these things I havent bought yet, but i will when it gets closer to my date since the anxiety is killing me !
- Arnica gel - for muscle soreness
- Arnica montana tablets/ pellets - helps heal bruises quickly, going to start taking a couple days before surgery ( buying on amazon ).
- Bromelain- pineapple extract, helps with swelling also going to start taking a couple days before surgery, an alternative would be to just simply eat pineapples.
-Graduated Compression socks- to help with swelling, a little pricey
- An extra faja
- Hibiclens antimicrobial soap, to wash with the night and morning before surgery
Some might think im going a little overboard but I just want to be extremely prepared.
In regards to scarring, i've made a homemade natural & organic body butter to help with the scarring. I mixed unrefined organic shea butter, organic coconut oil & organic castor oil ( proven to help fade scars ), and whipped it with a hand mixer and WALA. This can also be used as a hair mask and all over body moisturizer. A little random but i thought it might help.
Oh and i've decided to add chin lipo.
Also i know alot of people are concerned with the amount of surgeries she is doing in a day. I myself was concerned as well so i emailed her and asked about this. Luckily theres only 4 scheduled surgeries on my date. But she did say the order depended on the procedures that an individual was having. She said not all but most of her patients come from the US but not all have such extensive procedures such as a tummy tuck or a bbl. She stated that she knows her limits and would never do 6 or 7 surgeries a day unless she knew that she would do her absolute best in each. She also addressed the big butt problem. She said that alot of patients go to her with outrageous wish pics and she will be completely honest and tell them its not obtainable but that she'll do her best. She says most of the wish pics are girls that have either had injectables or implants and she simply just doesn't do those.
OH and lastly, in the recent weeks theres been alot of negativity surrounding Yily in regards to some patients getting infections and such, but i think we should look at the bigger picture. Yily has waaaayy more patients who haven't caught infections as opposed to like 3 people that have. We need to understand that infection IS A RISK OF THIS SURGERY. You need to go in with the mindset that it can happen to you. Infection can happen anywhere and to anyone. Lets not be quick to blame and bash a surgeon for catching an infection when lets be honest here, people might not have taken the necesary precautions prior to surgery. I just hope for now on we can continue to be positive for one another and see the bigger picture. The surgeon has a huge part in this but we ourselves play a huge role as well.
