19 days post-New Pics

Hey ladies I'm new here. I have been considering...

Hey ladies I'm new here. I have been considering the BBL for a while and finally decided to go through with it. My doctor of choice is Dr. Jimerson. He has great reviews, his pictures look great, and seeing him on A Family Hustle was just the icing on the cake. lol. I have a consultation with him December 20 and I am really excited. Can any of you give me any advice that you feel I may need to know in order to prepare my self for the new me? I would really appreciate it.

Hey ladies! I'm still trying to get the hang of...

Hey ladies! I'm still trying to get the hang of this website. How do I post my wish pics? Anyway, here's a little bit about myself. I'm 22, 4'11 and the last time I checked I was 136 lbs. I have big boobs (36 H) and no ass no hips. Don't want breast reduction. I love my boobs. They are like perfect lol. I have been working out since my freshman yr of college and it just hasn't worked. Dieting is just not working for me. I just love to eat. So I'm just trying to get my body proportionate. Being a recent college grad with no insurance yet, I wonder if that would affect the procedure in any way. Also for the ladies who have already had the surgery, how did u handle going back to the workplace? Besides the ppl I plan on telling, I'm really not trying to explain to ppl how one week I had no ass and the next I do. Im taking all the advice I can. I look forward to hearing from u ladies!

Hi ladies. My honey and I were researching...

Hi ladies. My honey and I were researching financial institutions to get a loan from to help finance my procedure. Do any of you have any ideas for me? How did you all pay for your surgery? Let me know ladies!!

My consultation is coming up December 20!!! I am...

My consultation is coming up December 20!!! I am super excited. I was also able to get approved to care credit! Not for the full amount but the rest I can come up with. Well actually my boyfriend got approved for it. Now that I think about it, I wonder if it will matter if the loan is in his name but I am the one getting the surgery? Does anyone know? I hope doesn't matter. I know I won't get approved with the student loans that I have. Anyway, so excited about the consultation! Any suggestions on what I should expect??? I realllyyyyyy hope I can get a surgery date early next year..I want to be ready for swimsuit season!! (If I can find a swimsuit to fit my boobs lol) Are there any petite women with large breasts (DDD and up) out there that know of a good place to get swimsuit tops? I'm a 36 H by the way. My height 4'11. Let me know!!

I had my consultation with Dr. Jimerson today....

I had my consultation with Dr. Jimerson today. Everything went well. I set my surgery for April 29, 2013. Really excited. Michelle was very helpful. She also had the surgery and she showed me her butt and even let me touch lol. She is funny. Dr. Jimerson was very helpful as well. The only thing thing he said because of how small I am he could probably only get 750 cc in each cheek max. Which means compared to my wish pics, he could probably only get about a third of what the girls in the pics had. I think that would still be enough. I just wish I could get a visual of a girl w/ 750 cc. Almost every person I saw and liked had 900 cc. My boyfriend is kind of ify. He doesn't want us to spend a lot of money and the outcome does not look much different then now, which is understandable. Anyway, I am still excited! I will be getting stomach lipo, hip injections, booty injections, and back rolls done. I'll keep yall updated!

Happy new year everyone!. 2013 is going to be a...

Happy new year everyone!. 2013 is going to be a good year I can feel it. I have three months and 27 days until my surgery and I cannot wait. It is really time to get everything together to prepare. i don't have much to elaborate on. I just wanted to share my excitement and say happy year lol

Sooo I'm trying to decide if I really need to get...

Sooo I'm trying to decide if I really need to get my bra rolls done. Dr. Jimerson said he could get about 60% of the fat from there. According to one review, there wasn't much difference when he did it. Idk. Something to consider.

Its getting closer and closer to my surgery! Im...

Its getting closer and closer to my surgery! Im super excited. I will be healed in my new body just in time for my birthday. Next month I will need to get all of my lab work done. Any advice on that? I have always been pretty healthy so I don't have any worries. I was talking to my boyfriend about not having grown up time lol until after the procedure. Wonder how long that will last. Especially with our anniversary this month and his bday in April. Lol.

51 more days until my surgery. The closer I get to...

51 more days until my surgery. The closer I get to that day the more anxious I get. I have even been having dreams about my surgery. I actually had a dream where I had the surgery but the next day I forgot I had it and was sitting down and messed my butt up lol. Annnnyyyyywhooooo, I put in the request for the two weeks off that I will need. My job is saying that I have to apply for leave of absence and I have to get the doctor to fill out this intrusive form in order to be able to get the time off. This is extremely annoying seeing the fact that I am not a permanent employee, I don't get any benefits, so whyyyy do you need all of this personal info from me. Just give me my time off with no pay and let that be that. So I have to find a way to get Jimerson to fill out these forms without putting anything too personal on them. I really do not want these basic, ratchet ppl knowing my business lol. Anyway, this month I have to get my bloodwork done. Not really sure what to expect. I have always been pretty healthy. I have been eating horribly lately but I dont think that will affect anything. I need to make a list of things that I will need for after the surgery. I just dont know where to start. Anyway, if you ladies has any suggestions, plz let me know.

I got some exciting news today. As you all know my...

I got some exciting news today. As you all know my sx was scheduled for April 29. Well I received a call asking if I wanted to move my date to April 1!!! That is in two weeks!! And you know I took it. I am like excited, nervous, and anxious. I am going crazy! My preop is now scheduled for next Tuesday and I have to go get my medical clearance today! I cant explain how excited I am. I talked to my mom about it and she tells me she thinks I should wait so she can prepare herself...ummm prepare for what? Anyway, now I definitely need to make a list of things I need for sx. I am open to any suggestions! Pls help! lol

Got my medical clearance! Omg everything is...

Got my medical clearance! Omg everything is happening so fast. At this point I am just waiting for the preop next week and the sx on April 1. I also have to get these leave of absence sheets filled out. I hate my job, ya'll dont understand how happy I am to be out of there for two weeks lol. I decided to wait until the pre op to make my list of things that I need. That way I can talk to Michelle and Dr. Jimerson to see what they recommend. I also see a lot of reviews about the lymphatic massages. Michelle said that was not really necessary, so I don't think I will get that done. She said either my boyfriend or I can just massage the lumps which is just fine with me. Yes! My boyfriend waiting on me hand and foot for a week! lol. Well I keep you all updated.

So I called Kevin today to have him fax over the...

So I called Kevin today to have him fax over the leave of absence paperwork to my HR manager so everything looks good as far as time off. I emailed my supervisor yesterday to see if I could ensure that I have next Tues off for my preop since the work schedule out is not finalized yet. She did not want to let me switch my off days. I was wth this is for medical purposes. So she agreed to let me leave early so that I can make my appt. Whatever. As long as I can make the preop. Nothing is coming in between this sx lol. I am soooo excited. It is crazy how close my date is. My sx is April 1 and my bf's bday is April 3. Can you say happy birthday! lol. This year's bday gift is a big ol booty lmaooo.. Goodnight!

Today was a pretty good day. I woke up in a great...

Today was a pretty good day. I woke up in a great mood. Went to Chick fil A for breakfast, got extra chicken minis for my wait and got a free cup of hot tea. The three lil hrs that I was at work was smooth, but something was telling me something is not going to be right when I go to my preop appt. So I went through my work shift brushing it off. I got off early from work, picked up my boyfriend, and drove to Suwanee for my preop appt. My boyfriend came one, because care credit and healthcare financing are under his name to he has to sign off on the paperwork and then of course so he can know all of the info he needs because he will be the one taking care of me after the sx. We get there and we are informed that I have to be an authorized user on care credit and the primary user on healthcare. Uhhhh definitely didnt know that. Michelle said that everything can be under his name as long as he is at the preop to sign the paperwork. So I'm thinking this is going to delay my sx because we did not have everything together to pay the full balance today. Side note: I didnt apply for the financing because I have student loans and didn't think I would get approved. Thats why my boyfriend applied. Annnnyyyyywwwwaaaayyyy. Everything ended up working out because all it took was a quick call to care credit to make me an authorized user and I just had to apply for healthcare financing there and have the bf as a co-signer. So yea we are good!. During the preop appt, I spoke with Kim who basically went over the medication, what i need to do and wear the day of sx. They will show my bf how to give me the Lovenox shot the day of the sx. Kim also told us about when putting the garment on after having it off for an hour, you must put your hands inside of the garment and smooth your skin out. If the skin is wrinkled under the garment, it will heal like that. When she said that I cringed. But yea, the preop was really straight forward and to the point. I started taking my vitamin c pills yesterday. Also, here is a list of things I have so far: -Sundown Naturals 1,000mg high potency Vitamin C (Publix) -4x4 gauze squares -Medical tape -Neosporin -Dial antibacterial soap -Cotton socks -Bigger panties -Maxi pads (to put on shoulders so the garment straps don't irritate skin) -Baby wipes -64 oz water bottle -Robe -Maxi Dress -Sweat pants -Slippers -Peroxide -Cotton balls -Q-tips -Tylenol Extra Strength -Measuring tape -Band-aids -Stool Softener -Pillows I also bought this thing from TJMaxx that I will use to elevate my butt off of the seat when I go back to work. I will take a pic of it and post. Not sure how effective it will be but we will see. I have been getting mixed reviews about the boppy pillow and yoga mat so I just decided to try it. This week I am going to start taking it to work so no one asks any questions after the sx. I am just going to play it like the chairs are uncomfortable and I dont want to sit directly on the seat lol. My logic is, if I do it before the sx, no one will think anything of it if I use it after being out of work for two weeks lol. The boyfriend just shook his head at that lol. He thinks I should just flaunt it and tell everybody I had surgery. lol smh. Things that I need to get: -Medication for after surgery (muscle relaxant, anti-nausea, Anti-biotic, Lovenox, Cephalexin) -Zantac -Food -Compression Garment 6 more days ladies!

Today is such a lovely day out here in GA! lol....

Today is such a lovely day out here in GA! lol. The sun is shinning bright. Its nice and warm out lol. Anyway, I have been out since early this morning getting the rest of the things that I need for my surgery. I got my prescriptions. For me not to have insurance everything came up to only $150 at Walmart and my boyfriend is going half on it with me. Some stuff I got OTC (stool softner, anti-nausea, pain reliever). Everything was actually pretty cheap. What shot the price up was the Lovenox... goodness. That was over $200 by itself but the nice lady that helped me gave me a discount. How nice :). I went to Ross and got three cute maxi dresses for about $35. I got the female urinal from Walgreens for about $11. The arnica cream I got last night from the Vitamin Shoppe for about $7. So I am pretty much set. Today I am going to wash clothes and wash my hair tonight. I know the paperwork said do it the day before sx, but honestly I dont think it will be that much of a difference as long as I don't put any hair products (gel, moisturizers, etc) in my hair like they said. Tomorrow after work I am going to my boyfriend's house (where I will be after sx) to clean. Gosh his room and bathroom is so dirty lol... men. Soooo yea definitely going to clean that up so that everything is neat and tidy when I get home from surgery. Also, I am going to go grocery shopping so that we don't have to worry about leaving the house. The only time he will actually have to leave will be to pick up my last Lovenox shot. Walmart only had six today, so they have to order another one for me and it will be ready on Monday. I am noticing that we are saving a lot of money on this procedure which is good. We have been saving thinking we will have to spend a lot, but everything has been priced pretty good. I also had a target gift card so we got a lot of stuff from there. Anyway, wish me luck :). I probably won't make another review until after the sx.

Hello ladies! So my sx was yesterday morning. When...

Hello ladies! So my sx was yesterday morning. When woke up I took a shower with my Dial antibacterial soap, brushed my teeth, and took the Zantac. I was supposed to be there at 6:45 am, I got there at 6:30 am. When I got there the nurse gave me a gown, cap to cover my hair, and compression socks to change into. I also gave a urine sample for the pregnancy test. After that we went to a room where to checked my blood pressure and temperature. After that she took pics of me from different angles. We then talked a little bit about the size I wanted my butt, etc. Another nurse then came in to put in my IV. The first nurse did not feel comfortable doing it because I have tiny veins. The second nurse then explained the anesthesia and the medicine that would be given to me. After that was explained, Dr. J came in to mark me up. I showed him my wish pics and he told me that he probably wouldn't be able to get it as big as the pics b/c my butt is so tight (which I already knew) but he will put in as many ccs as he could. He explained that the shape is what is important. I agreed with that. I just wanted him to do him and make me look great. I wasn't really expecting to look like my wish pics just b/c I know that every woman's body is diff and plus half of the wish pics are photoshopped. My point of showing the pics was for him to see examples of the roundness I wanted for my butt and also give him an idea of what I wanted my hips to look like. After Dr. J marked me up, the nurse that put my IV in came back gave me some happy medicine and escorted my to the room for surgery. Man that happy medicine had me feeling tipsy lol. I was just smiling and stumbling lol. Everything after that was pretty much a blur. I just remember walking to the surgery room and them putting the mask on me for the anesthesia, then I was out. When I woke up i remember asking for my boyfriend then falling back to sleep. I woke up again to a nurse asking me if a pair of sandals were mine then fell back to sleep. lol When I say I was out of it, I mean I was out of it lol. I remember my silly bf coming up to me saying "bad bitch contest you in first place" lmao. I also remember the nurse saying that the pain medicine may be too strong for me so she cut them all in half and told him to only give me half until I feel like I need to actually take a whole one. Once she got my clothes on, her and my bf walked me to the car. I was not in much pain. Getting in the backseat was easy for me. I texted my friend to left her know that I was ok and I spoke with my mom, then I drifted off to sleep, waking up periodically. Yesterday I was pretty much pain free. Just a lil sore and stiff. I honestly just felt like a had a good workout. Yesterday really just consisted of me laying on my stomach watching tv and drifting to sleep. Waking up then sleeping again. I recommend you ladies get up after a couple of hrs and walk around, depending on how you feel. I noticed after laying down for hrs and trying to get up was slightly painful because my body was so stiff and felt heavy. I noticed that after walking around for a lil bit loosened me up. I purchased a female urinal and lets just say I am thankful that my boyfriend is here to assist me. The first time I used the urinal, a little bit of pee got on the floor so I had to get my bf to hold the urinal up to me so that it was positioned right so I can actually pee into the urinal. I also noticed yesterday that I could not stand for no more than 5mins because I would get nauseous. Overall, yesterday was a pretty smooth day. The only hard part was trying the get off of the bed after laying down for so long and trying to sleep at night. During the day, sleeping was easy, I was socomfortable. But last night was just horrible. I was in pain, I was uncomfortable, it was hard to move and position myself because after laying down for so many hrs, my body was stiff and heavy so it was just so hard to move. After the amount of pain I was in, we realized that half a pill was not enough for me, so I am now taking a whole one for the pain. Getting out of bed this morning was horrible. It took me forever. I was in so much pain. Every time I tried to lift myself up it felt like my stomach was being ripped apart and my butt was killing me. After we eventually got me up and I starting walking around I felt better. I think I going to try standing and walking around for most of the day. I am actually standing as I am typing this review and I feel great. I haven't really had much of an appetite. Yesterday I just had some soup from the Hibachi restaurant (that is the only soup that I like) and saltine crackers. Thats probably all that I am going to eat today as well. I have a some before pics that I will post and just one after pic. I will upload more once my bf wakes up and have him take them. I am trying to let him rest a lil bit since I am ok right now. Oh yea, my bf said that they putting 750 ccs in each check but he is not sure about the hips. I will call the office and check. For the ladies who already had their sx, did you guys wake up in the middle of the night to take your meds? I know that the directions say take every 4 hrs or every 8 hrs depending on the med. So my bf woke up at 3am to give me my meds. But I dont you have to worry about it while im sleeping I think. I would think you would just resume taking them once you wake up. Let me know pls!

Today was not as bad as yesterday or the day of...

Today was not as bad as yesterday or the day of surgery. I am now able to get in and out of bed without my bf's assistance. Ladies pls take your pain meds every 4-6 hrs. I set my alarm at 3am and then 7am so that I could take my pain med. It has helped me tremendously and I was able to sleep better throughout the night. My appetite is coming back so I began eating more solids like tilapia and corn. We took off the garment for an hr to wash it and to clean my body. My booty looks amazinggggggg lol. I will post pics. I just feel like the ones I have already taken just dont do my booty justice. My bf loveeeessss my booty lol. It is definitely bigger than what we expected. Im anxious to see the fluffing stage. Removing and putting that garment on was hell!! omg is was so painful. I just dont understand how they expect us to continue to put this thing on and take it off. I have been having this headache all day. I am not sure if its a hunger headache or what, but it has been bothering me all day. I am ready to get the drain removed. Trying to get the blood clots out can be annoying. Any advice on removing blood clots? Pls let me know. I am trying to stay active by walking around and standing. After awhile my legs feel tired so I lay down. Every time I lay down, I fall right asleep. I guess it is good to get as much rest as possible. Anyway, looking at this computer screen is making me nauseous so Im off this.

Still not sleeping that good at night due to pain,...

Still not sleeping that good at night due to pain, but during the day I make up for the sleep lost. Getting the garment on and off today was a lot easier than yesterday. Definitely not as painful. I started my period today. Oh joy -___-. Definitely didnt think it would start until next week. Overall, the healing process has not been that bad. I stay pretty comfortable during the day. It is mainly at night that I am the most uncomfortable. Finding a good position to sleep in can get frustrating since I am limited to only sleeping on my stomach. I did find that kneeling on a pillow next to the bed and laying my head on the bed helps to relieve that pain that I feel in my back from laying down. So tonight I will try alternating between kneeling and laying on the bed. I notice myself getting frustrated because I am so used to doing things for myself and now I am in a situation where I need assistance. Anyway, I posted more pics. Honestly, the pics dont do my booty justice. I looks a lot better in person. Dr. J did his thing. I was not expecting the have the results that I have. I understand that I am still swollen but I know after I am done healing, I will look amazing.

Soo for the past couple of nights I have been...

Soo for the past couple of nights I have been going through it. I wake up with pain in my back every 1-2 hrs. The past two days I was up crying due to my discomfort wishing I could go back in time and not do this procedure at all. I often tell myself I hope this is worth it. I noticed that at night I may have to sleep kneeling down next to the bed and lay my head on a pillow on the bed. That seems to be more comfortable for me even though my knees tend to hurt. Oh well, I will work it out. Other than that, I am good during the day. The worst part of the day for me is taking the garment off and getting my shot. Thank goodness today was the last day of the shots. I noticed that my thighs are really swollen. Not sure why. Ladies, how long am I supposed to wear the compression socks? I had my first bowel movement yesterday thank goodness! lol I am getting tired of drinking prune juice. Removing the garment and putting it on has gotten slightly easier as the days go by but it is still a hassle. I hate having the garment off. For some reason I feel weak and vulnerable without it. I feel like my stomach is like my brain without the skull. I need something to protect it at all times lol. My boyfriend has really been a lot of help. I am truly thankful for him. He has been there to comfort me when I am crying, help me change my pad (im on my period), cook for me, etc. I am very very very grateful to have him. I am still using the urinal which is a pain in my ass at times. Sometimes I can pee with not issues and sometimes I may pee on the floor. It is soooo frustrating. I am trying to stay positive and stay strong. but the discomfort, frustration, irritation, etc gets me to a breaking point at times. I know it is just the first week so I have to be patient and understand that this is a process but damn. Anyway my ass is lovely. My bf loves it. I think its a lil bigger than what I want, but hopefully its just the swelling and will go down.

Last night I finally had a good night sleep. I...

Last night I finally had a good night sleep. I didn't have that weird back pain every couple of hrs. I did not have to stand up every couple of hrs either. I only had to wake up to use the restroom and take my meds. Today I was also able to use the restroom without the urinal. I just pulled the piece of garment that is between my cheeks to the side and squatted. The pain is getting better and better. I can lean forward and pick things up. My swelling in the legs is going down since I took off the compression socks. I haven't been draining much fluid so I should be able to have that removed tomorrow at the postop appt. I wish I could just sit down for a second I feel so lazy laying down and kneeling is taking a toll on my knees. I'm eager to trying on new clothes. I wonder how long do I have to wear this triangle on my back?

Today i had my 1 wk post op appt. Kim took out my...

Today i had my 1 wk post op appt. Kim took out my drain! Yes! So happy that is gone. My bf watched as she pulled it out. He said the drain had to be about a foot deep. Crazy. It was very painless. The worst part was removing the tape around the gauze. Kim said i had since fluid build up so she had to get a needle to remove it. She recommended that i start the lymphatic massages. I told her that Michelle said that i was necessary and that my bf could do them. That was something else that Michelle misinformed of. I love Michelle and all but she keeps giving us the wrong info. Anyway, me and the bf with look into some massages. Kim said that i only need 3-4 massages. other then that, everything else was good. She also recommended lipo foam to provide more compression so that i won't have anymore fluid build up. I got one sheet from lipo express for $20. It is much more comfortable than the board that a lot of ppl use. Any good places to get the lymphatic massages in ga? Pls let me know. My 6 wk post appt is set for may 21. Can't wait to see what my body looks like then.

Hey ladies. My bf pointed out that my booty looks...

Hey ladies. My bf pointed out that my booty looks a lil flat. When i looked at it, the top is still round but there is a part on both cheeks that looks flat. I'm thinking this is a part of the healing process. Kim did say my butt would go down once the swelling went down but then would fluff back up. I'm wondering if this is the case. Pls let me know. I don't want to be worried for no reason. Did any vets deal with this?

Am I the only one that wakes up with regret from...

Am I the only one that wakes up with regret from this procedure? Now don't get me wrong, I loveeee how my body is shaping and I don't regret why I did this procedure, but sometimes I wake up uncomfortable and I'm like damn I wish my body was where I wanted it to be so I didn't have to deal with this discomfort. It can get very frustrating not being able to sit, or drive yourself anywhere, or do anything for yourself that involves bending, etc, and not being able to sleep how you want to. I know ppl have their own reasons for this surgery. Mine was to get my bottom half more proportionate with my top half (big ol boobs lol). But you ladies definitely need to prepare yourself mentally. This procedure is definitely not only a physical thing. I have my times when I breakdown emotionally from the discomfort/pain and I am a pretty strong girl. This is definitely not a post to scare anyone away from the procedure. I strongly feel if you want it, get it! This is an amazing procedure that helps shape the body. Its almost like a redo. I feel like this procedure gave me a second body to do right with. Eat right, exercise, etc. I just want you ladies to be prepared mentally and emotionally. This is a time where independent women are going to have to be dependent on someone else. Understand that. Anyway, my body is looking great. My booty has dropped some and let me tell you I LOVE IT!!! The swelling is going down as well. I went to try on some slacks for work. Someone on here recommended New York and Co for us women with the newly big booty. Let me tell you, those pants fit lovely. except for them being too long with I'm used to since I am so short. My only issue was the price. $50 for some slacks? I just couldn't bring myself to do it. My and my bf also went to Bed Bath and Beyond to get a chair. He was going to cut a hole in it so that I could sit in this without putting pressure on my butt. So we get home and he begins to cut it, he sits in it and the damn thing just ripped. lmao yep so that was a waste. So i am just going to continue to lay on my stomach and kneel. Have any of you ladies tried laying on your back but elevating your legs or butt somehow? Theres got to be a way. Also ladies I would recommend getting 2 garments. I stuck with the one given to me after surgery and purchased a waist cincher from sears. During that hr that we can remove the garment, my bf would wash it by hand and put it in the dryer. Yesterday while he was giving me a bath, we noticed that my skin down by my vagina where the garment is was getting irritated. Uhhh wth. So my bf cleaned the area real good with alcohol and put some neosporin down there. And we just machine was the garment just to make sure it was getting a thorough cleaning. But I recommend two garments because machine washing then putting in the dryer may take longer than an hr and you just want to ensure that you are prepared for anything. That waist cincher aint worth a damn. Just something i put on temporarily for when i go over that hr with washing my garment. That lil measly hr that we get goes by so damn fast lol. Anyway, have any of you ladies gone back to work? Im supposed to go back next week but I just dont feel like im ready. Im starting my lymphatic massages today so hopefully that helps. I heard that ppl were feeling a lot better after them. I will post more pic soon. I still just dont feel like the camera does this ass justice lol. Also that lipo foam is working really good. It is definitely helping my stomach go down more.

Today marks 13 days post. This is just a lil...

Today marks 13 days post. This is just a lil update on what has been going on. At my 1 wk post op appt, Kim recommended that I start my lymphatic massages and do about 3-4 consecutive sessions. So I started them on Thursday at Temporal Healing in Midtown. The girl's name is Nin. She is great. She has a private practice, so she works out of her condo. She has a nice lil set up in a separate room. The massages were very very relaxing. She did a mixture of the lymphatic and swedish massage on me. After the second massage i was feeling great. Yesterday I woke up, washed my hair, put on some makeup, went to get my last massage from Nin, went to the mall with the bf, and then dinner. Nin recommended that I do 2 more sessions with her and once Im healed, she wanted to try some other techniques on me for scar tissue and detoxing. Yesterday's massage consisted on lymph drainage and deep tissue on my stomach and back. idk if it is all of the stool softener i had to take last week or these lymph massages, but i have been going to the restroom like crazy since i started the massages. goodness. dont get me wrong, it feels great to clean myself out but damn. Anyway, today I am feeling really blahh. I am soooo tired of this garment. I really HATE this triangle. When can we stop wearing this damn thing? I want to do the do with my man!! lol. Im really thinking about saying forget it and just doing it. Damn! 6 wks? I dont think so. Anyway that is all that has been going on. Tomorrow marks the 2 wks post mark. Just ready for this to be over with

Also, do you ladies know of any other ways to lay down? I am tired of laying on my stomach. How long until you can lay on your sides if you got fat put into your hips? And are there anyways to lay on your back but with your butt elevated?

Greeting, just a little update. Sunday I went ahead and did the do. Sorry ladies. Aint nobody waiting no six wks to have sex with their bf who they have been around everyday for 2 whole weeks lol. Famous position from the back (doggy style) works wonders. Yesterday was my first day back to work. No one noticed anything, just me being gone. My coworker that knows I had the procedure has been telling ppl I was out sick so I had to keep up that story. Just told them that i took time off from work then got sick with a stomach virus last week. I purchased this cardigan from target that was on clearance to wear to work. Its made to be oversized so it covers everything until i want to slowly reveal my new body. I uploaded a pic of the half foam roller that i sit on for driving and at work. Its great b/c it is actually used to work on posture, balance, and the core (just like a exercise ball). So thats what I told my coworkers why im using it and just said i didnt want to carry around a exercise ball. The half foam is good b/c it is flat on the bottom that way it doesnt shift while im trying to sit on it. I also got a travel pillow from Marshalls for back support. Monday was the first day since my mom and sister has seen me since before my surgery. My mom was sooo excited. Talking about she is going to get lipo done. I guess..lol...I tried on some on my pants that i thought i wouldnt be able to fit anymore. They still fit but just look sooo much better on me without the garment. Hopefully they will still fit after i fluff. Well that is all that has been going on.

Hello, just a little update. I am almost 3wks post...

Hello, just a little update. I am almost 3wks post and feeling great. Swelling is still going down. I measured my waist and it is 5 inches smaller than what i was pre op. I measured my hips and they are actually the same as preop in inches, but there is clearly a difference in my body. I try not to get too wrapped up in measurements just because they are just numbers. At the end of the day it is all about what you look like. For example, for can take 2 women that weigh 180 lbs. One woman is actually shapely, no stomach, just all booty and thighs and the other woman is actually overweight, no shape. You wouldnt consider the first woman fat because of her shape/appearance. Since my waist is a lot smaller, Dr Jimerson has shaped me, made a butt rounder and fuller, my appearance/shape looks great. So yea, im loving my body. My steri stripes are falling off. Let me tell you. Looking at the steri stripes, i thought i was going to have scars just b/c of how dark the steri stripes were, but when they fell off, there really isnt a scar. Im still healing and putting neosporin on them so they can heal. Also, i read on the paperwork that Aziza sent me that you are actually supposed to put antibacterial ointment on top of your steri stripes daily after surgery. I did not know that, so I started doing it earlier this week. I was concerned that my incisions would scar but they didnt so im good. Also, I think i have scar tissue on my back where i got my bra rolls done. What should i do about that? I have uploaded more pics. Loving my curves. My bf is loving them as well. I also uploaded pics of Yaris Sanchez. She is who i showed to Dr. J right before he marked me up on the day of surgery just to give him an idea of my vision (i was not expecting to look like her b/c everybody's body is diff). The pics i showed him were just her plain pics, no photoshopped magazine pic and i must say he did a great job with getting me what i wanted. Work and driving with the half foam roller is getting easier by the day. Just cant wait until the point where i do have to use it anymore. I also called Michelle the other day, just curious about when i could lay on my side. She tells me wait as long as i can. What does that mean? I mean if i wanted to i could wait yrs. I feel like some type of time frame should have been given. And then there was someone in the background telling her 2-6 wks. Seems like everyone is not on the same pg. I still love his office staff though. Just wish they were a little more helpful with certain things.
