I didn't get clearance for my BBL :( - Tampa, FL

I'm brand new here to RealSelf.com but of course...

I'm brand new here to RealSelf.com but of course I've been looking at the web site for about two weeks. I've been wanting a bigger but since I can remember (like when I hit puberty)! I'm 26 years old and have a 7month old daughter. I'm pretty tall for a woman I guess at 5'9 and 150lbs. I'm not heavy but since I had my daughter via C- section at that, my butt has gotten even flatter I feel. Like I HAVE NO BUTT AT ALL! About a few weeks ago I sat my husband down and told him I seriously wanted the surgery and was going to make an appt for a consult. My goal is to have a natural looking behind, nothing majorly big at all. I just want to be proportioned. My bust size is a 34 DDD (naturally) and I want to match those. My consultation was on Valentine’s Day I believe and I was soooo excited that I put my deposit down and agreed to the surgery within 30 min of her talking to me ($500). I have another appt to meet with the Dr. this Wend. I'm hoping to have the surgery in April. My question is, what are some questions I should ask the Dr. and should he be asking me any, what should I be looking for?

So my appt with Dr. Miles was rescheduled for...

So my appt with Dr. Miles was rescheduled for March 13th... Fingers crossed!! :)

I'm been having some recent thoughts about...

I'm been having some recent thoughts about reconsidering my surgeon. I've only spoken with two women on here who have had BBL by him and neither has pictures to share (which makes me wonder/worry). My husband has also been mentioning a second kid. My first is only 8 months so I really didnt want another kid yet but it does make raise another concern for me. What happens to my body if I get this procedure now and have another child lets say 2-3 yrs from now. I was told the fat cells don't grow back in the places they were removed but other fat cells get bigger in other places. Sounds like I can be looking quite peculiar to me... Has anyone had a child after having the BBL? Also, does anyone have any surgeons to recommend in the Tampa FL area? Thanks for any and all help!! :)

So it's midnight and I'm still not sure what's going to happen at the pre-op in the am. I know I should have "wish pics" but is that all. What should I expect or look out for? Any advice would be ssoooo helpful for me! Thanks guys!! :)

I had my pre-op yesterday and went for my clearance with my PCP today and he did not approve of the procedure nor did he give me clearance. He didnt think I had enough fat. Idk what else to say... :/

I went to my PCP for my clearance. He didn't think I had enough fat and he also wanted me to wait until I'm done having children because of fertility reasons. I haven't seen him since I didn't pass clearance. The previous date I had has come and gone. I'm now getting a refund for my deposit I'd made

Hi "new me"... I haven't done anything. I had to lose the extra lbs I put on for my booty. It's just a waiting game for now. :)

Consider Dr. Salama, I know he's more expensive but I've seen very slim, even skinny/underweight looking girls go to him and get results IMO (actually some of my favourites on this site were skinny) so that's a poor excuse by your surgeon, even skinny women ave fat pockets on their bodies xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Thanks so much Cutekoala. I have been thinking of changing surgeons. One major reason is because I've asked for referrals twice but haven't received them yet so the only pics I see are in office. I found two girls on this site that got BBL from him but neither of them had pics to show either. I know the price will increase with Dr. Salama but you get what you pay for right!!!

well girl.. let me give you the FAT GIRL PLAN!!! get you some gummy vitamins, start with prenatal gummies or start with vitafusion multi gummies, take them every day you wake up!!! #2 FORGET all the rules you learning growing up about healthy eating, and do the opposite! - starting going to sleep after every meal!! - eat a heavy azzzz dinner with bread and potatoes and go to sleep! soon after! find your damn favorite icre cream and stock up!! i suggest BLUE BELL because them bastards sure made me fat!!! EAT YOU FAVORITE ICE CREAM EVERY SINGLE DAY!! and i mean make sure you eat it AT NIGHT! every night you can! don't eat a lot of salt b/c your sodium levels will kick out you labs, or blood pressure results... you don't need potassium issues or high blood pressure find your FAVORITE BURGER JOINT AND EAT THAT SHIT EVERY SINGLE DAY! MAKE SURE YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH FRENCH FRIES! EAT FRENCH FRIES (you can bake them if you choose) but each french fries and ketchup and burgers and whatever else you feel you love ... but eat the starches and breads and fats every single day fall in love with KRISPY KREME DOUGHNUTS! try to eat as them as often as possible, eat macaroni and cheese, eat peanut butter and jelly sandwhiches, and eat that darn ice cream!! if you are a cereal nut, eat that sugary cereal as often as you can! milk will blow you up! so you need whole milk and the best sugary cereal you can get a hold of! lastly... become best friends with pizza hut! dominoes cici's papa john's eat pizza as often as you can! forget the damn subway.... eat pizza for breakfast (actually pizza counts as a "complete" breakfast) eat these foods as often as possible, and go to sleep after eating as often as possible... you will be 25 lbs heavier in no time!!! you can return to your eating habbits after surgery so go ahead and reschedule for 3-4 months from now

I'm sorry to hear that your surgery didn't get approved...are you going to schedule consults with any other surgeons so you get a second (and maybe even third) opinion? Good luck to you...

Yes I definitely will... I really want this and will keep doing whatever it is I have to get it. I'm leaving the country but will be back early April and will continue the process from there. Thanks so much for the advice/concern.
