My overall goal is a smaller waist and perky butt. - BBL - Dominican Republic, DO

I have decided to go with Yily. I have based this on a few things. 1. I have a butt and feel that an aggressive stomach and back lipo will make it look bigger. 2. It seems that the dissatisfied reviews of the more popular Docs are starting to increase. 3. cost of course is a factor. 4. Why not recover and vacation in 70 degree weather.

My quote for BBL is $3100, plus Recovery House at $100 per day for 12 days ( this includes 3 meals, Wifi, transportation to and from airport), Flights are around $500 round trip. Based on previous Yily reviews I don't think I will need to stay for 12 days. I have requested dates Dec 11th or 12th. I sent the request today and it normally takes her office 3 days to respond. I will update once the date is confirmed.

I received an email back from Dr. Yily and I am doing to Santo Domingo on December 11 and surgery on December 12.


Hi Touch up! Congrats on your upcoming surgery. I will also be going to Dra. de los Santos. I arrive December 20th and have surgery on the 21st. Will you still be there?

I should be, im waiting on a quote for Lipo sculpting only so I may arrive closer to your date.

After reviewing Lipo and my butt as it is I thought I may not want the BBL just aggressive Lipo. So I decided to request for Lipo only and......Well, I received the quote back from Dr. Yily for Lipo only and it was $100 less than Lipo with BBL. Doesnt seem to make a whole lot of sense to me. In this case It would be less expensive for me to stay in the states and have Lipo. Little dissapointed! If anyone knows a PS that does aggressive lipo in the states please advise. Thanks!


Hey girl! I speak Spanish, so of you need help let me know! Good luck! ;)

I maybe joining u. I didnt know the law changed in May of this year and I had to have a passport. Previously I could just show up at the airport with my birth cert and ID and they would give me a temp pass. I had to cancel.... Ughhhh!!!
Awwh! My surgery is on the 13th and I will be returning to the states on the 20th.

I looking for a buddy to help past the time while in DR. I am scheduled for surgery on January 10th. I had to change dates due to passport. I am staying in DR from January 9th to January 17th, My plan is to stay at Jacqueline spa for 1 night then move to hotel. I I have found some really great rates on hotels as low as $24 per night, Please PM if you are interested.


YAY!!! :)

Day 1 Requirements 1 - Passport 2 - $10 for...

Day 1

1 - Passport
2 - $10 for Tourist card they only accept US dollars or Euros as a form of payment for the Tourist card.
3 - Cash for hotel stay in full

Airport- Arrived in DR at 4:30pm took about 1 hour to get tourist card and get through customs. Jacqueline and driver was waiting once I was done to take me to the hotel. They drive really fast here and lane jumping BUT if you like speed you will enjoy the ride.

Hotel- nice, clean and cozy, staff very nice. No hot water in my room.

Hotel payment- bring cash for the full amount of your stay. After settling in at the hotel you will be asked to pay for your stay in advance "CASH ONLY". This can be in US dollars or Peso.

Funds- only get Peso's if you plan to shop or take a taxi somewhere otherwise U.S dollars are fine.

Travelling in- if you are able to get that Jet Blue flight that gets there at 4:30am I would highly recommend taking it. You will be able to have your surgery that day therefore saving time and money in hotel fees.

Food- I had dinner at the hotel which was brought to my room. Chicken (thigh and leg) with mash potatoes. Im not sure if I was starving or the food was really good.

Supplements - took 1 Pien tze Haung
Good for inflammation, pain and swelling.

Surgery tomorrow


Hope all is good and surgery went well

Day 2

Arrived at CIPLA around 7:30 got
1. Blood work
2. X-rays
3. Visit with Cardiologist

I met with Yily she asked what size butt I wanted, I said medium.

Went to surgery around 12:30 there were 2 girls ahead of me.

After surgery- I started having scary hallucinations. I spoke with 3 other girls they had the hallucinations as well. They went away after about 3 hours. If you take any anti- depressants I would encourage letting your doctor and Yily know. A combination of your med and what ever she is giving could go terribly wrong.

Didn't eat all day wasn't hungry.

Only slept 2 hours last night.

Did not need pain meds

Did not take any supplements today

I am in a Butt-In garment


Is there a form I need to bring from the states saying that I have medical clearance or do I just go?
  • Reply
@ensureaddict, no form is needed. They will conduct the needed test there such as Xray, blood work and Hesrt chk wit Cardiologist. Remember to get ur Passport
Thanks got my passport today!!! I'm seriously set! Ok so one more question.. What antibiotic is prescribed? Pain meds? I'd like to get that stuff here (know a few docs lol) rather than pay $250 there. Thanks

I will update by Monday with pics as well. I am out of my garment and only wearing during the day. It was causing me to have extreme headaches at night. So far my results look like what I requested which was small waist and medium butt. I have a lot of swelling in my lower back. My first massage is Monday. Thanks for your patience.


@ensureaddict, i have posted the list in my blog.
@journeytome, Hi, I have posted a meds list as well as addl items in my blog.
Thanks so much I saw it....God bless and hope you have a speedy recovery.

I will post more pics on Friday. I asked Dr, Yily to keep my look as natural as possible. Didn't want the big Butt, I'm too old for that. I have been sitting on my butt since day 1 and since day 7 only wear my garment at night. The garment was causing me to have headaches, ankles, feet and lower legs swelling. So I guess I am the test dummy to really see if sitting on your butt decreases the fat intake. I will keep y'all posted.


Hey touch up question was there any hot water or did they have to boil water for bathing? Did you have to purchase your own drinking water for your room?
  • Reply
@char123, water was boiled and brought for bathing BUT dont stress ova it u will only need enough to was the important parts. You wont be rushing to take that Garment off. Drinking water was brought to the room daily and as much as you need.
Did you end up bringing any of your own food? Or buy good in te DR? The day you got there, before surgery, did you go out into DR at all, or just stay at the RH?

Here are most recent pics. As I mentioned I requested a natural look. I have been sitting on my butt since day 1 and driving once I returned to the states. I no longer wear my garment and I am 16 days PO.


Did you have a lot of drainage? And if so how long?
  • Reply
Ok so I have one question. What size jeans did you wear before the surgery and what size do you wear now? Can you still fit into some of your old pants? I have lots of clothes very nice clothes that I have accumulated over the years. I work in the corporate world so my clothes are expensive. I don't want to have to buy all new clothes it took me years to accumulate them. I don't want a video vixen butt just a little more than what I gave now with projection like yours.

Dominican Republic Plastic Surgeon

Provided low rating on payment process because I was told I could pay with credit card but when I got there was told cash only or if I paid with credit card at the CIPLA it would be an extra 5.3% that's about $164 extra. So I had to call my bank and get the money wired.

4 out of 5 stars Overall rating
