Hello BBL gals,
I am getting a BBL with famous Dr. Curves himself; Andrew Jimerson!
I have always wanted a big booty with hips to match; but unfortunately didn't get these at birth!!!!!!
I will be updating my post regularly;feel free to ask any questions.
The story so far:
I had to take pictures of my front,back and both sides and send to the patient co coordinator; you will be assigned one. Mine is Monica and she's so friendly and helpful. About a week later; I spoke to Dr. Jimerson. He looks at your pictures and assesses what can do with your body! Its important you note this point.,,. Its good to send him pictures of the look you are trying to achieve;but its also important that you understand everyone's body and shape is unique.
As for Jimerson; the before and after pictures I have seen; are pure genius. He really is a perfectionist.
My surgery is 2 weeks away and I am so excited! I will upadte you all;every step of the way. I am traveling in from Europe so it will be interesting to see how Jimerson and his team take care of me!
The Costs-Now Jimerson is a bit expensive. Below is an outline of the initial costs:
Additional Hip Fat Transfer - $1,000
Meds- $350 (I think its cheaper if you are a USA citizen and have insurance)
48hr Care- $350- if you are travelling alone this is mandatory.
Additional Garment- $100- a new garment is compulsory; you have to wear these for 6 weeks. The initial garment you put on after the operation will be too big after 10days. So,you need to buy another smaller one. Alternatively, you can take in the first one; but its worthwhile having a spare...
Hotel- $700 (budget on staying about 10 days)
Total is $12,000
These are just the initial costs outlined; I imagine that food will be quite a bit more and so will the hotel. That's why I have such a large misc amount.
And the above does not inc my ticket!!!!!!!
Any-hoo chicas; will update accordingly!!!!!!!!

Hello BBL Gals! Sorry I have been MIA- very hectic...

So, after the BBL the pain was a 9 during the first 48 hours. After that it subsided down to a 7 and was even more manageable with the pain meds. I am happy to say that 13 days after my BBL I am pain med free and back home and healing nicely.
Ladies; any of you looking to do this procedure must not under estimate the recovery process; it is rough and there are no short cuts. It is 100% worth it but its tough. I had a long trip and on the way back home (during my flight)- i got edema and i was sooooooo swollen. I can only thank God Almighty that I did not clot and I am stable. I am still a bit swollen and still have some edema in my legs. But it is subsiding and so is my swelling. I have a first class support system and house maid back home; that's why I have recovered so quickly. Also, I followed Dr. Jimerson's post op instructions down to a T.. During my first 10 days while I was in the USA; i was at the surgery everyday. They washed me (on day 3 and 4) and helped me get back into my garment. By day 5 i was able to wash myself and by day 8 I could remove and put back on my garment on my own. I took all my meds, I ate right (even though I didn't have an appetite) and walked about every 2 hours (this is critical in the first 48 hours). Do not be in a rush to leave; stay the absolute minimum - 11 days after the procedure. You may think you are fine; but your body has just undergone major surgery; internally it is still healing.
For me, I have no regrets and I am so happy that I used Dr. Jimerson. He and his team are absolutely phenomenon. I also had good support at the Hotel- Hyatt Place in John's Creek. It's 2 minutes from Jimerson and the hospital and the staff are very accommodating. There is also a free shuttle bus (3 mile radius) that will take you where ever you need to go.
Well, that's all I can think of for now... Will update as I heal (and if I think of anything more!!) xxx
Ok- update ladies. First off- thanks so much for...

First off- thanks so much for all the compliments and support. Greatly appreciated.
So I am now 15 days post op and still a bit swollen.
I had my first massage today and honestly it was a bit uncomfortable but it did the world of good. I ventured out in the car and it was awkward sitting down but i eventually found a comfortable position. I am fortunate enough to have a chauffeur so I was able to relax. Only problem was my ankles were a bit swollen by the time i got back home. I did stand up for a couple of hours; so maybe that's why. I edema is healing up nicely- I have been chugging back watermelon and pineapple juice. I have also been taking my Arnica tablets everyday!! Ladies, helps immensely with the swelling.
Took off all my steri stripes- have black spots; but plan to use fade cream.
Hello BBL Chicas- I am now 27 days post op and...

The only hick up is my ankles are still quite sore.
Other than that its all good.
My hips are still 40"... they have been this size since 13 days post op. I am not too sure what I was immediately after the surgery; but from clothes I have been trying on; I dont think I have lost much volume; maybe half an inch. I am praying that it stays that way.
In terms of clothes- none of my trousers fit-except for the ones that had loads of lycra. All my tailored stuff is too tight.... 'Jeans no longer fit. I am happy I will be back in the states for thanksgiving; will be able to stock up on some more jeans at a good price.
I have more or less resumed back to eating my normal foods- I didn't really follow the diet Jimerson gave me; I am quite skinny so I am not too worried about putting on weight. If I do- it will go to my hips, ass and thighs. As you know they were lipo'd- but to be honest if I had a choice I would not have lipo'd them. I like big thighs!
Garment- I am still wearing it 23 hours per day; I have been very careful about that. I had some adjustments done; made the hip and bum area bigger (I had to- garment was digging into my hips!) and took it in at the abdomen. I am still wearing the same size garment as after the surgery; there was no way my hips and ass were getting into a small.
That's all I can think of for now... laters chicas!
Hello BBL Ladies- I am now 6 1/2 weeks post op and...

I still have some swelling in my thighs. I am thankful that all my Edema has gone- WHOOP!
The only complaint that I have is if I walk around for a lot of hours- my ankles still swell. I was worried about this but Kim said that some of the swelling could transfer and this could happen for about 6 months (it better not!!).
I am still sitting with my Boppy Pillow - 2 more weeks and I throw it away.... Even if I have a revision; I will need a new one; this one is flat as hell! My thighs must still be kind of big to do that damage... LOL.
Will update again in a week or so.
Happy New Year Chica's Nothing new to report......

Nothing new to report..... Butt is still fab and things have healed up nicely. Updated a new pic- was taken last weekend.
Happy Healing Ladies.
My Doctor: Andrew Jimerson, MD
Dr. Jimerson is a funny, caring doctor. He is also very professional and understanding. I wished I spent more time with him; but I guess because he has so many patients to deal with. You cannot go wrong with this doctor; Team Jimerson all the way.
