77 days til the new me! I'm anxious but at times I question whether I'm making the right decision. I continue to think of my potential recovery pain and I wonder of I'll go through with it. I've got the best dr in the business so in know he will do an awesome job!!! Praying that these butterflies fly away!!!

Well, last night I purchased plane tickets for me and my aunt. She insisted on staying the whole time. After reading the reviews concerning the pain and nausea, I decided 'what the hell', might as well let her stay. I'm up in arms about where to stay. Some say the Hyatt but then many have said its not up to par, there is the Hilton but it's quite expensive for 12 days and then then there's the holiday inn. For those of u that have travelled this road, please offer some insight. Tick tock tick tock!!!!

Where is the best place to stay around the Suwanee, Ga area?

67 days to go. I tried my hand at wearing a spanx all day so that I could get a feel of what a compression garment will feel like. It wasn't bad at all but I know once I have the surgery it'll be worse. I was told by Dr. J to lose 20lbs before my surgery but I just didn't think it would be necessary that is until today. I called the ofc and was informed that with the weight loss, the bbl results are great and without they are just good.damn! I'm almost 5'10 223lbs and I'm content with where I am. My coordinator explained that 5000 ccs sounds like a lot but once the dr. starts, the ccs pile up. She says he starts on the back rolls first (my God! He can get all 5000 right there. Lol), then the flanks and the stomach is last. She said that if I want a near flat tummy, I've got to get the weight off! Well damn!! I don't plan to exercise once my surgery is done so I just really don't see the need. I lost 33 lbs in 2011 and I've only gained 4 lbs in 17 mos. I'm up in arms with the weight loss dilemma. I will try........

I need some serious help from some of you ladies that have had surgery in Suwanee. I'm flying in snd hadn't planned on renting a car but going to need transportation from Dr. J's office. I will need to lie face down and I'm not sure if the shuttles are equipped for that! I wouldn't dare sit on my new $11,600 ass! Lol I'm just wondering if I should rent a car just for that day so I can be In the backseat comfortably. For u ladies who have already gone where I'm trying to get, please tell me how you did it.....,

Well! I woke up this morning and decided its now...

Well! I woke up this morning and decided its now or never! I'm on the road this morning (5 hr drive) to pay the balance in full!! I can't wait!!! 30 days til I board the plane and 32 days til I cross to the other side. I can see me now doing the "rump shaker". I was advised to lose 20 lbs but I decided against it! I like my size and I don't plan on maintaining that type weight loss. I'm confident that he will give me the desired look with no problems. He's the best of the best!

Well damn! I completed my medical clearance and...

Well damn! I completed my medical clearance and had my doctor fax it over about a month ago only to find out that Dr. J's office never got it! I'm glad I called. It's coming down to the wire; 25 days til he works his magic.

I just spoke with Aziza and she is sooo down to...

I just spoke with Aziza and she is sooo down to earth. She confirmed that the clearance was received and asked if I was excited. I advised her that I was very excited but that I had 1 real concern. I expressed to her my concern on dr. J's lack of aggression with back, upper and lower bra rolls. She was very honest and explained that that area has fibrous materials in addition to the possible puncture of a lung. The more aggressive the more danger involved. At my consultation he clearly told me that he could give me a 60% reduction and I agreed to go with his services. Although it looks like I have 3 sets of boobs on my back, I trust him to do his best! Lol if not, I'm stalking his ass! Lol I had opportunities to go elsewhere but I stayed with my decision, j-curves.

Its got to be nerves because I swear I'm not hungry. I'm eating my ass off! Lol the closer my date comes, the more I get it in. I've got to get a grip. I'm consistently 226lbs. I pray that dr. J gives me the look that I desire.

Wow! Just think; as of today I have 13 days before...

Wow! Just think; as of today I have 13 days before I officially transform. I've been ready comments from other bbl patients and now my time is right around the corner. I will update as much as I can. I'm confident that he will do an awesome job but the recovery is what scares me. Everybody is different so I will just have to take the total pkg and cross this path when I get there. For all you ladies that have crossed over I'm sending u a high five and for the ladies who will be doing it soon we must band together and get it done. On to a brighter future. Everyone have a wonderful day.

Pictures are finally posted! With all this love,...

Pictures are finally posted! With all this love, he'd better be pulling a big ass rabbit out of a hat. Lol as you all can see I have major back rolls and this is a major concern of mine. I also have a shelf that is unwanted. Dr. J says that he can definately fix it. I hope so. I want a Phatt upside down heart. He doesn't have to so much make it huuuuge just make it round. I want a "pow pow pow, man down booty!"" Lol I surely hope he can take 5000 ccs out of the right spots to give me what I want. I'm going into this surgery with realistic expectations but i do sometimes expect a miracle. I have faith that dr. J will perform the job that he's been graciously paid to do. Time will definately tell; 12 days to go.

Tick tock let the countdown begin....

I'm very excited! It's been a long time coming. I've watched a lot of ladies come and go and now my time is near. To all the ladies that will make that journey tomorrow and Monday, thumbs up!!!! On Tuesday some Florida sunshine is coming through Georgia! I hope dr. J can make this ass cause a wind storm! Shake some leaves off the trees or break a few limbs or something! Lol without laughter there is nothing. Pretty physique hang in there girly!!!! You'll do fine.

Touched down in Atl/pre op is today

Touched down in Atl yesterday to some cool and rainy weather. I'm 1 step closer to making my dream a reality. Dr J's office rescheduled my appt for later on today but that's ok as long as he's on time tomorrow. Lol I'll update u guys after my pre op to let u guys know what happened.

I'm mad as hell!!!

I based my flight around my pre op appt and on Friday after 5 dr J's office called to change it yo later in the day. I said we'll that should be fine. I arrived early to my pre op with hopes thAt I could slide in and slide out!!!! What a disappointment!!!! I've been waiting over an hr to be seen and keep in mind I was here 45 mins early that I'm not even including. They're taking post ops and people who don't feel we'll before me. Work them in us all I ask! Shit!!! Stick to the scheduled appt times as best as possible. All these smiles ain't worth a damn!!!!

From flat back to Phatt back!!! Lol

Imma give it to y'all real. All these ladies saying this surgery us a breeze told you a lie. This pain and discomfort is indescribable. This hasn't been an easy ride for me. If I had to do it again I wouldn't, not even if I was a millionaire. Gettin a new ass ain't all its cracked up to be! Maybe smaller women have an easier transition but as a big girl this shit is rough. Make sure that you ladies stay on top of your iron levels because when I flew home I had to get two pints of blood. Dr. Jimerson does his thing though; tell him what you want and you'll get just that. Too much to type about; I'll inbox u my # and we can talk .

Lol this has been an ordeal that I was not prepared for. I've been in pain since day 1. At 3 wks, the feeling started coming back In my right flank and at this point the nerves were going crazy. The pain was excruciating and all I could do was pray. Being that I live in Fl dr j couldn't call in any meds for me. At that point I wouldve rather given birth every day for a week and had all my fingers chopped off. A friend of mine had plastic surgery and her dr prescribed a med called neurontin which happened to be a life saver. My God! It helped to get those raging nerves under control. Omg!!! I'm at 7 wks tomorrow and I'm now getting the intense burning pain in my lower back. If it can happen, it's happening to me. I'm not generally a crybaby but I was not prepared for the recovery following aggressive lipo. All I can say is that my recovery has been hard.

Amen to that. I agree with you about the pain but, girl I have to admit I would do it again because I see it is changing my quality of life. My boyfriend is throwing money in my lap now verses before. He is more attentive and concerned about where I am. lol. Im like what do you think Im going to do go find another man two weeks after surgery. On a scale of 1-100% I'm 89% happy with my results. One side of my butt has more volume than the other and I think I still look boxy.

First of all Mz. Thang let me call the ATL police dept. to cancel the A.P.B. and the search party. Now that you are no longer M.I.A.!LMAOROTF! !! Girlfriend you had me scared, worried, concerned etc. I was checking for you everyday, multiple times a day. Gurlllllll I'm so ecstatic as I sit here. looking at your after pic. I swear that Dr.J has a pair of seriously "annointed" hands! Honey you have ass to the GODZZZZZ! I know you can't stop staring in the mirror at yourself! Chile what are you gonna tell your people when you get back home? You can't hide all that ass! Lol Your waist line is there and back rolls are gone! Be sure to read Newbootyinc blog to get tips on the various compression garments she used to train her waist. You said the recovery is a mutha? Tell me about it plz. I've heard about stiffness, pain, hardness etc. You must give me the 411 on the morning of.

Lady the pain for me ain't no joke. Recovery is the worst. Others may sugar coat it but I'm 1000 . There's no way you can do it alone. My back is not flat it's the garment that smoothes it down. My back is so tender you really can't admire the work. Now I've got ass fa days! Lol I hot up this morning to try and take care of myself and my auntie started that "beep beep" shit like Madeas' brother hollering out wide load! Lol you have to keep good spirits in order yo make it through. Girl my ass is so big it hangs from underneath my shorts. I'm too ashamed. I'll take a pic! Lol be specific when giving dr j what you want because he is right on the money. If there are questions u want to ask but want to keep them pvt, pls inbox me.

Tender is good in the sense that this area is going to be very "moldable". It will go flat. You know you are very swollen right now. Make sure you place epifoam in your garment because it helps with keeping strong compression on your skin as your body shrinks (especially when the garment starts to loosening up), which in turn, shapes your body. Girl you gotta tell me about the triangle pad he places on your lower back! How is your tummy looking? Do you remember how many cc's he removed from this area? Girl don't be ashamed of your ass hanging out! Lol Girlll you better be proud of & flaunt that BIG OL'THANG! You know it's going to grow right? I'm going to have him make mine stupid huge. I can't wait till he marks my body up and ask me how big. I'm going say,"Make her Queen Kong huge! 2000 cc's pleeeeeze & NO SHELF!" LMAOROTF So your fam got jokes-and funny ones too! Whenever you bump that ass into someone just remember to say,"Ooops you just got rear ended". Well I hope you start feeling better and the soreness subsides. Pls keep the photos coming. Bye girl

I just woke up to u and 2000ccs. If he does you will need a social security check. Shoot I got 1100 and I believe I cAn sit a baby's bottle on it. If you get dust you want, baaaaabyyuou can sit a tea set and a pack of hotdogs on it! Lol your ass will be so heavy you'll need skis to move it. I woke up to a laugh and now I'm going back to sleep. I hope I get my drain removed in the morning. If so I'm hauling ass! Bahaaa

Ladies, tonite was the very first night that I didn't have to take my pain meds. Be prepared because the pain is indescribable. I think my pain was a 10 because I'm a bigger woman and my lipo was aggressive. Stay on top of your meds because if u sleep through your time u will pay for it when u awake. Stay hydrated please. I have the thrush, but thank goodness dr j called in a rx this morning and things are getting better. Baaaaby when I tell u I am tickled to death when I look at this new booty believe me!!!! You will be delighted! He performs a phenomenal job. I'm a brick house and im thrilled with my results. He removed 4800 ccs and put 1100 in each cheek and 300 in each hip!!!! Lol Dayummm is all I can say. If you ladies think this procedure is all fun and games please rethink it. It's been 5 days for me and this is the first time on real self. Don't over spend. U won't even want to leave ur room after the 1st 48 hrs. Taking off the garment for the first time will make u hate everybody and you will ask yourself why. It doesn't get easier please condition yourself to get through it. All I've used were 4x4 band aids and peroxide. You will need bed pads the first 2 days because of the drainage.i have arnica tablets that I never opened. Get a bottle if hibiclense to shower with the night before and the morning of. You won't even know your surgery has been performed until they try to awake u. I wish all the ladies who have to travel this road the best cause it ain't easy but through the stiffness, pain and tears you will know that you've made the tight choice.
