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!!!!

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........

Hi there, welcome and thanks so much for sharing your journey with us!

The weight loss thing is a dilemma! I think you have to make your own decision based on the facts. If you're happy where you are weight wise, and you don't mind simply "good" results, then stay where you are. However, if the doctor is saying you get "great" with weight loss and that is what you want, then it might be worth dropping a few pounds. At least you still have a couple of months, if you do choose to lose some weight.

Please do keep us updated with your progress!

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.....,

Hey hun, hope all is well! In regards to ur question, you will need someone to pick u up after surgery and care for u for at least 48 hours...if you are traveling alone I reccomend hiring a nurse, I have a couple of nurses #s that I got from BBL Sisters if u need them...

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!

If I could figure out how to get them off of my phone onto this site, I will blow y'all away with this banging body! Bahaaaaa
It took me a while to figure out how to as well. Can't wait to see if/when you do.

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 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 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.

Ok that's what's up...so happy for you...I'm in june 2013...It seems like a dream...Keep us posted....have you bought supplies and med's yet
  • Reply
No supplies as of yet. I've decided to just pick up a boppy pillow. I purchased some arnica tablets but not the gel. I've been reading alot of ladies who swear by it so I'll give it a try. I'm only gonna get peroxide, alcohol, gauze and neosporin. I feel a lot of the things these ladies are buying are unneccesary. As soon as I've made it safely to the other side I will definately let u know what is really needed.

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.

The "Countdown" is on! Getting nervous and excited yet?
  • Reply
So nervous I've packed and te packed my luggage 3 times. I just hope that dr j can transform my body. I'm super self conscious and with his help I hope to turn over a new leaf!
He got you boo! I know for a fact that he will create a MAJOR DONK for you. The lipo work...Ehhhhhh that's another story. Be prepared for the possibility/reality of having to get more lipo done elsewhere.

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.

Heyyyy lady! I'm as ready as I'll ever be. Lol I'm going in for all the heavy plus'. Tomorrow when u wake up go outside and see the leaves shake on the trees cause you will know I've crossed over! Lol I hope to have the roundest ass in Georgia baby! Lol gotta laugh about it!!!

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!!!!

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.

Yes, you look wonderful. What a big difference. I am now 15 days post op myself and I experience burning and stiffness with hella swelling in the middle of the night. It doesn't matter if I have my faja on or off I still swell and burn in my sleep. Do you have this issue as well?
