I want a BBL, been looking for a Dr contacted over 10 & all but 1 said I need a TT & they wouldn't do it unless I got that. I am 30, & don't have kids yet so that was not an option for me. I then began looking for a Dr that would do AquaLipo on me & found Dr. Carreon. She was the 3rd Dr I had a consult with and the only one that said it could be done. But she said I would have better results if I got the SmartLipo because it would help my skin in the long run. Had in done on May 22, 2012. Greatest thing I have every done for myself besides going to college! I paid for my upper/lower abs & flanks. But she did my lower back also. Hey, I aint' mad at her. Beginning stats 5'9" 221lbs 36-45-47. WOW I know. Now 207lbs not even 3 whole weeks out & my waist is a 37. Yes, I have a few lumps but you can't see them you can only feel them when you touch my stomach. Massages help and are softning them up so I got 2 keep at it. I didn't have a lot of pain & only needed someone to come help me the first 3 days. I have only taken 3 painpills & that was cause I couldn't sleep cause I was so uncomfortable. It's not the pain that is getting me but the swelling & stiffness. She removed 5.5liters & I am loving my new body. I am dieting & exercising to lose more weight. I am trying to get down to 180. This has been top secrect for me so before the surgery I hit the gym HARD! 6 days a week. I was 228lbs when I had my consult which was a month before my surgery. So I only lost 7lbs in a month. And with the surgery 14lbs in less then 3 wks. Oh, I forgot to mention after my surgery I didn't feel like eating but I knew I had to put something on my stomach so I ate small cans of pineapple, soups, salads and fruit buddys. Yes, those drinks you give to your kids. Oh, if you do the pineapple get em in the all natural juice. That still has a lot of suger so get a jar pour the juice in there & water it down. If you can stand it try to but some kind of meat in your soup. You need the protein to help you heal. Couldn't do shakes they taste nasty! EW! Still swollen & will post pics @ my 3 month mark. And if your considering BBL follow my other post there. That is the last surgery I want to have before I have kids. If I left something out or you want to know more just ask.

I want a BBL, been looking for a Dr contacted over...
Also working out helps with your recovery. If you...
Extra strength Tylenol
non stick bandages
tape for bandages
shower curtain to sleep on so not 2 ruin bed
pads to stick inside of garment
vitamin e oil
silcon scar sheets
2 extra garments in different sizes for when I shrink
pee pads 4 bed
caster oil this will help you go poo
dermaplasty it's an aintibacterial spray works really good
gloves for helper
I didn't really use the pee pads cause they moved when I slept so that is why I used the shower curtain. I Only had one accident that I needed the depends cause I couldn't get that dang garment off fast enough. As soon as you feel it start making your way to the toilet! Since I know I will be have a BBL I got a boppy but this came in hand for back support. I didn't poo for 2 days & took that caster oil & was cool after that. Didn't want to wait to feel the pain. I had enough pressure from the swelling. Boyfriend laughed when he saw me peepee standing up.
I only really drained for the first day, after that it pretty much stopped. But I think that is why I am soooo swollen. I want tubes next time. Since I didn't have a lot of drainage I didn't need the pads.
The Dr gave me a script for pain, aintbody, nausea, and bloating. They also gave me 1 garment & a ab binder. Forgot to get epifoam so I went without. But I massage & rub everyday. So I dont' have lines.
I get pings of pain now but they said that is the nerves coming back to life. Parts of my body are still numb. But it's cool she told me to expect that.
This is pretty much the same list I will be needing for BBL so I am just going to stick with it.
