Just one week away from my B.B.L. procedure!

I am having liposuction on upper/lower abdomen and flanks with about 500cc fat injected to each side. Looking for improved contour.

Thanks to all the Docs and patients on realself.com that post their feedback and answer questions!! I will update during recovery.

Doing good 36 hours after BBL! The 1st 8 hours were the worst. I am on pain meds, but walking around alot and doing well!
I got 390cc in each side. It will probably be a subtle enhancement, but I have small hips so I think that will be good.
I am eating low sodium/low fat. Protein drinks, apple sauce, salt free rice crackers, low fat cheese strips. So far, so good!

10m days post BBL surgery! Doing better every day. I think I did myself a favor by not examining my surgical area every day. I tried to focus on recovery.Still wearing my compression garment. My waist is 3" smaller already.(I am not slim, so I have extra inches to spare)I ordered a smaller garment and will wear than in the day and the larger at night.

It has been 6 months since my surgery.
The fat and shape is still there!

I am happy with the skill level of the surgeon, as well as the care he and his staff provided.

I am happy with the results of my liposuction(upper and lower abdomen) with fat transfer to buttocks. I wanted a rounder, fuller buttocks. There is a noticeable improvement of shape and fullness. I still have swelling and some bruising, but much less than I anticipated. The first 8 hours the most painful. After that, stiffness and soreness are the best description of my discomfort. Dr. Salemy prepared me for what I would likely feel and see during recovery. So I was not alarmed with anything. His staff is nice and Reyne is a wonderful recovery nurse!
