I need help finding a good dr. I live in Texas and I am willing to go to miami or anywhere in the US to find a great dr...HELP. I have been considering this for about a year now, I have seen dr mendietas work, but I know he doesnt do revisions on work that he has messed up on and that is a big concern for me, he is charging my friend almost the same amout to do revisions on work that he messed up and I think that is horrible, but his work is amazing, I was browsing this website and heard about dr salama and how great his work is so, now I am considering him, but dont know too much about him, Is he as good as everyone says? Has he had any deaths? ect... PLEASE HELP

yea I stayed at the best western for my surgery last year, and it was decent enuf. Its good because u get free wifi and a fridge and microwave so you can plan ahead for food n stuff. its close to dr. salama's office too. Jus watch out for the gentleman's club right beside it tho lol u get a lot of attention walkin thru the parkin lot to get to ihop or denny's lolol omg that was interesting! Im getting a revision done oct. 6th, and am stayin at the best western again. :) good luck!

Ok where should I start.... A few weeks ago I had changed my mind about having my surgery because I could not get my husband on board, so I decided to get my boobs done, but after calling an AMAZING dr in houston and finding out it was 10k I decided to keep my appt with dr salama and do the bbl. My husband still doesnt want me to do the surgery AT ALL, he is constantly telling me I am fine just the way I am, but I can not stress to him enough that im glad he loves me just the way I am, but this surgery is for me and I want a nice round ass lol.... I was starting to feel really selfish and confusted, but I want this surger really bad.....SO CONFUSED!!!!

Neishia5 as I said on my review Dr Salama is a master in giving head turning butts. Congratulations on being part of "Salama Team". I personally love the way he contour women butts. Good luck to you. March is here b4 you'll know. :-]
  • Reply
So I see you live in Texas too. I went to many Drs in Dallas and San Antonio and that was a joke. Didn't want to pay that much like what the Dr in Houston was charging. I've done so much research and the hubby agreed with Salama, So Salama it is!!! Good luck on your journey ;)

Yes it does, I went to do some shopping the other day and I think I have all the main things I need but antibacterial soap, anything else I need I will get in Florida, how is it going for you?
i bought more or less everything i need ...have you receive the package from the office yet?? and how many mg of iron we got to take per day?? i think it would be a good ideal to start now taking the vitamin C and the iron I just dont know what is the right amount of mg per day

Hello Beautiful Ladies, Sooo I...

Hello Beautiful Ladies,

Sooo I havent updated im awhile I was waiting for my time to get a little closer, my package came in the mail yesterday so I am super excited and reality just hit that I will have a BOOTY come March!!!! I went to purchase a few items a few weeks ago, and I am going to do a run through of the items I purchased and if anyone has any suggestions please input. I will be posting pictures later this week or next week ugh I hate to post these ugly pictures I HATE my back fat!!! I have a pretty face minus the body, so this surgery will make me feel complete. I would love to meet up with any of you ladies who will be in Florida around the same time.......I guess thats it for now...You ladies have a wonderful day!..oh I have started taking 1000mg of vitamin C and 35mg of iron a day because I think it is too soon to start taking 6 iron pills a day to get the dosage needed! what do you ladies think should I be taking 6 iron pills now or wait until closer to surgery time?

Hello bootylicious ladies and bootylicious ladies...

hello bootylicious ladies and bootylicious ladies to be, I ordered this chair a few months ago thanks to another bbl sister and I finally pulled it out of the box today and I love it so far, it holds my weight well and I'm 175, and its very sturdy. one thing I thought would be a problem is the height of the chair but it's not a problem so hopefully after surgery it will work great when I want to sit... I have high hopes of going to the beach and advice?

Feel free to join if interested. Oh I also plan on going to the beach early so im able to enjoy it and get in the water before surgery.... I have never been to a beach.... anyhoo I will post more pics this week....Goodluck ladies....Oh im so sad my yahoo locked me out for 12-24 hours I think it was so no instant messages from rs for me:( I have to get on my computer now and it sucks!

Helllllooooo ladies thank you for al your prayers...

Helllllooooo ladies thank you for al your prayers and well wishes during my rough recovery. I was released from the hospital after receiving two pints of blood which worked wonders, went to the office to get a stage 2 garment and my front drain out then on to the airport to go home.....My flight was horrible from florida because it was full so I had to sit the whole time using my arms and boppy pillow to hold me up to prevent all the pressure from being on this round booty lol....After finally getting on the next full flight I decided to put the boppy on the floor and kneel on it and relax on the seat and it worked wonders... After a 6 hour flight I finally made it home and OMGGGGGGG this stage 2 garment feels like its cutting off all circulation to my butt and trying to rip it in half it is soooo painful! So after about 20 minutes of my hubby and I trying to get the garment off and over my ass I was able to shower... Has anyone else experienced a rash on inner thigh after taking off stage 2 garment? because it broke out my inner thigh so after my shower I put my stage 1 garment back on..

and called Noemi this morning and she told me that I need to be in the stage 2 garment to prevent fluid build up and to start shaping my body... sooo with that being said im home alone and have to put the stage 2 garment on alone!!! it was hell so Noemi advised me to use baby powder and that worked great... I baby powdered my inner thighs really good as well as my butt and to work I went and after about 30 minutes im in my stage 2 garment with foams!!!!!!!!.....yea meeeee.. im going to my massage therapist today to get a messasge im soo looking forward to that.... any hoo I will continue about previous days after my message and post a pic before message and after..... I really love you ladies for helping me through this tough time xoxoxoxox
