I have been squatting, lunging, rubbing and praying for my booty to be perky for years. Conventional methods have not worked, so I plan to see Dr. Jimmerson in Suwanee, Ga to help me get the look that i want. I am not looking to be big as Delishis, but I do want a backside that compliments my thighs and hips which is appropriate in the boardroom and irresitable in the bedroom. :)
I plan to have two procedures to get the ultimate...

I am a healthcare revenue cycle consultant so I work from home. At what point after my surgery will the pain be bearable for me to begin working again? I get anxiety when I am not working..
Dr. Jimmerson recommended inner thigh lipo and hip injections. But I like my big legs and was hoping to shape them to compliment my butt rather than reduce them with lipo.. What do you guys think? Should I start working them out now? I am afraid if i do, I will lose weight in my abdomen and not have enough fat to graft.
I meant to get a tape measurement to post my measurements. I know my breast are a 36DD and I am 5'7 185 pounds. More interesting facts, I am 32 with 2 children (10 & 12) and not planning on have anymore kids, unless I adopt...
Also, can someone send me a list of all the supplies and incidentals I will need pre and post op to prepare for surgery?
Thinking about rescheduling my surgery for October...

5' 7" -185 pounds.. I would say that my weight seems to be evenly distributed.
There is no way, that i am getting hip injections.. Judging from my pictures, should I loose about 20 pounds before surgery? Ive sent this question post consult with Dr. Jimmerson, but I cant get my coordinator to respond. The customer service there sucks. i dont think it is fair as client who is spending over $10K with this practice, that I should be treated unimportant because I have given my deposit already. Im a little ticked off about the customer service there.

We are all excited about our new figures from BBL, but please make sure you ask for your plastic surgery medical record when you attend your post op appointment. The medical records will give you the details of what was administered and perfomed on you, in the event any issues were to arise when you return to your home of record and your primary physician needs to take any corrective action because you develop a complication or adverse affect due to Ps years down the line. There may be a cost for them copying this up to .45 cents per page depending on state requirements.
I have read too many posts were women developed complications, didn't see any or minimal results and wonder why. One bbl sister was told so many different stories by her plastic surgeon and it wasnt until 6 months later he decided to revise it. HELL NO! It wont happen to me. I am going to take control of my results and make it clear and known, I want my medical records within 72 hours post op, with signatures from PS and anesthesiologist per The Joint Commission requirements. (all operative notes must be dictated within 24 hours of surgery).
I love Dr. Jimmersons work, but someone made a comment that made so much sense. He is not God and will not do everything perfect. I just need to make sure Im his anomaly.

I was wondering if I plan to go to normal weight of 150-165 pounds post surgery, shoud I ask for more than 1000 CC's more due to reabsorption rate and postop weight loss plans? I undertstand that once the cells have permanently attached they will remain in the grafted area. The fat cells will increase and decrease based on your genetic makeup. However, I want to maintain a natural projection with curves, should I over compensate?
Also, to the ladies that went to Dr. Jimmerson for their surgeries, in the basic bbl price how many injecetions does he make in each buttocks and where are the injections made? For example, does he make one injection in each check in one area. for example bottom of each cheek. If you want the side or the cheek injected, is that considered the hip? Is there an additional cost if you want the top of the check injected as well?
These may be questions I need to ask him, but you all know how Monica's a** is about answering questions.
Where can I get these arnica pills? I am also planning on doing a homemade body wrap while in my garment to reduce inches on my thighs and arm while I am laying up. What do you guys think about that? If so, what minerals do you recommend I should use?
Also, how did you guys know what size garment to purchase to have as an additional garment while you were recovering?

- Day of treatment
I landed in Atlanta today and went to my pre-op clearance where I was given my pre and post op instructions. I met two ladies in the office who were 6 and a year post op patients of Dr. J ( who also works there). There booties were so pretty, perky and soft... I loved itI Touching it and talking to those ladies eliminated all the anxiety and doubt. They answered all of my questions and even gave me hints and cautious facts that will occur post op. For example, after your surgery many ladies in the office that had the surgery had a drop in metabolism and a spike in appetitie. They attribute it to the tranfer of the fat. Be sure to eat right afterwards and create a healthy lifestyle so you don't gain the weight back in your stomach due to over eating. Drink lots of water, take vitamin C and the CRNA highly recommends lymphatic drainage massages. 2 lymphatic drainages twice per week for 3 weeks and once a week as needed if there is still a lot of swelling. The CRNA said that with the use of her arnica pills and massages all of her swelling went away in before the end of the first month.. I have to figure out where to get some arnica pills.
Other info: I love Atlanta.. The people are so friendly and nice. The speed limit is only 55 miles per hour on the highway so, so try to get where you need to go before rush hour. That would be hell!
I am staying in the Hampton Inn that has a kitchenette and living room and dining room. Which is awesome, because my mom is here and she is going to make some of my favorite meals.. Can't wait! The rate was $89/night and it is 10 miles from the office. In Texas 10 miles is about 10-15 minute ride. In Atlanta its about 20-30 minutes. I
If you have to get your meds go to Walmart because it was certainly a lot cheaper than CVS. Your most expensive medicine is going to be the blood thinner (lovenox). My antibiotic was $4 and pain med was $36. I didnt get zofran because it is a prn drug and I can fill it if i need it. That drug was about $60. I bought milk of magnesia otc because the CRNA said it work better for her than the colace. Also, because I am irregular, I need all the help I can get. Sorry, TMI.
I did not buy the urinal or diapers because they said it was ok to sit for brief intervals to use the bathroom. No need to poop and pee on yourself or garment.
I did have to buy peroxide, cloth tape and gauze to redress my wounds and clean drain. I also bought some maxipads to line the bottom of the garment to prevent permanent indentations!!
I am really excited and will post pics of my hotel, more pre-op pics and post op pics in a few. Talk to you soon
Its day 2 post op and I am still in a lot of pain....

Ok, so the nurse told me I could sit to pee, however, the pain is so bad. I pee standing up in a large macdonalds cup. The mouth of the cup fits perfectly in the opening of the garment to prevent accidents.
Someone asked what are prn drugs.. prn means as needed.
The address to the hotel I stayed in is 1725 Pineland Dr. Duluth, Ga. But the Hyatt is right down the road from his office. I just dont know there rates and if they offer kitchenettes.
Also, I found out that the pharmacy across the street from Dr. J's office is a lot cheaper. I had to get my lovonox there and it was only $225 for cash patients. At walmart it was $232 and CVS $257.
That's it for now. I will update you tomorrow.

I took off the garment because I felt so bloated I fel like I was going to bleed if I kept it on. My mom went to walgreens and bought me some grape magnesium sulfate. I drunk the entire 10oz bottle per the instructions and washed it down with a 16oz bottle of water. Within 3 hours my bowels finally moved and it kept moving. It was awful. I am afraid too put my garment back on, because my stomach is still upset and its an orchestrated event to take that thing on and off. Im really worried how not having the garment on for a 24 hour period is going to affect my results. I will call in the morning to see if I can get the drained removed early to make sure that my drainage results is accurate or if i have an obstruction somewhere. I don't want to have to stay longer than I have to because of an inaccurate drain read.
I have a very infrequent bowel pattern and i was taking 4 tbsp of milk of magnesia along with my stool softener to help, but that didnt work. Ladies, word of advice, make sure you are eating green leafy vegetables and have a high fiber intake to keep yourself irregular. Drink 64 oz of water a day and 100% juice at least a month before surger if you are irregular like me. All the narcotics and anesthesia in your body will affect colonic output.
Enough of that!
I am absolutely in love with the folding chair with a hole in it that forever booty posted. I plan to head to walmart to get one tomorrow. \
I will update you guys tomorrow with more pics of my room, me, chair and measurements tomorrow after my visit to dr. Jimmerson tomorrow.
Lets pray that real self uploads my review and pics..
DISCLAIMER: DR. JIMMERSON DID A GREAT JOB. I...

I have been contemplating if I should update my post or not, because I am unsure how I feel about my results.
ELEVATED BLOOD PRESSURE: During my surgery, my blood pressure elevated and caused for me to be in OR 4 hours instead of 2. I had 3800 cc's removed and total of 2400 injected inmy buttocks. I asked Dr. Jimmerson for bigger hips and natural butt to compliment it. Which he gave, but I wish it was a little bigger. I wish he would have lipo'd the max 5000 cc's to give me the leaner torso, I desired, but I believe, my intraoperative complication affected that.. :(
MY SEROMA: Kim, told me that before I could get my drains out, I would have to drain less than 30 cc's by my post op appointment. Well I noticed on day 4 I was draining less than 30 cc's and thought that may be a little odd. I asked to come in early to make sure there is not a clog anywhere and low and behold, I had two seromas on the left and right side of my abdomen. I had them drained that wednesday and came back friday for another aspiration. I was told, I need to see if my primary md will drain them for me when I returned home otherwise, I would have to stay in atlanta for up to 7 weeks. why 7 weeks, because It may take 7 weeks of draining for the seroma to finally go away. does anyone remember the name of the member who had a seroma? she was dr. salama's patient. I need to find her blog to see all the things she did to get rid of it. I was told to keep a lot of compression on it, get it drained and do lymphatic massages. Luckily, I found a doctor back home who would do it for me and I only have to pay the $25 copay.
MY FLIGHT: I was so paranoid on my flight back it was unreal. I wish I would have gotten an aisle seat on the last row. I had a window seat on the 7th row and my seat mate didnt want to switch. As soon as the fasten seat belt light went out, i was litterally using my arms to lift my butt off the cushion every ten minutes because i didnt want to lose my booty.
CONTEMPLATING 2ND BBL OR MORE ABDOMNIAL LIPO: I posted my before and after pics taken in the office, because I really haven't been in the mood to take pics of myself. I am not really happy with the lipo, but i know its not his fault. I am disappointed because he is one of the most expensive bbl ps and i was expecting to get my money worth in lipo. I was really hoping he would have gotten more fat out so I could concentrate on maintaining the results so I can be ready for my Ultimate Breast Lift in December. Because of this seroma, i will have to wait until feb. to make sure everything is healed and back in place.
I really hope, I am just going through postop blues and the swelling in my stomach will drastically decrease to remove my back roll, I have left to really enoy my new shape. I know I can exercise or diet it away, but I honestly didn't think my built was that bad that he couldnt get it all gone. so I could work on building up thighs and arms without focusing so much on my abs and back. Don't think I will be watching the TI and Tiny show. It will make me feel even worse if her results came out better.. enjoy the show.
I am going to delete my profile to avoid saying...

My Doctor: Andrew Jimerson, MD
I spent 100's of hours revieiwing surgeons who do BBL's and finally came across Dr. Jimmerson artwork. It wasn't until I came across Dr. Jimmersons photos when the angelic cherubs begin to sing.. His work is pure masterpeice and worth every dime he charges. I had a consultation with Dr. Jeneby in San Antonio, and the experience was horrible.. He didnt even ask me what I want to look like. He was dictating my case while I was asking questions. He wouldnt even give me a quote on the BBL. His staff wouldnt even smile at me. The same day, I started googling BBL's and this site popped up with Dr. Jimmersons photos. He is a definitly a miracle worker. I knew he was the doctor for me. His staff is so friendly and took their time to answer my questions and made me feel like I was the only person that mattered for 20 minutes I was on the phone with them.. When I had my phone consultation with Dr, Jimmerson, he was extremely down to earth and personable. I asked him are his photos real, because I haven't come across another surgeon who's pictures look like his. He laughed and said, " I just know what a butt is supposed to look like." I can't wait until he builds my brickhouse. Stay tuned!!
