Im 22 years old 5'9, 174 lbs and have been wanting to do this for over a year now.I recently graduated with my BA and before I begin my graduate course work I would like to have it done. I have one child and before having him I had a nice booty and body shape. After having him I noticed that I did not gain weight in the same manner that I used to, so I want to have this procedure done to help a bit. I chose Dr. Campos because of forums on here and the results he gave were amazing and I'm hoping that I can have the same results.
The areas that I'm getting lipo'ed are abdomen, waist, lower and upper back (I have that stubborn fat in the bra line)
I hope that my experience could be of help to others like others were to me. I'll try to keep it updated as much as possible. If any of you have suggestions please feel free to leave a comment. I look forward to sharing my experience!

Firgot to mention I'm hoping to get 1,000 cc's!

Yesterday I went to get my labs done and it kinda hit me then... It's only 2 weeks away!! I'm excited and nervous at the same time.. I've seen some of the other girls mention the pricing of the labs but luckily I get a discount at work so I less than twenty for my labs :).. The doctor that I saw didn't want to prescribe me my medications until I explained to her that the pills in Mexico were less effective. So she gave me some pain killers I hope they work because the dosage on those were like 50mg. I'll upload before pictures soon and my measurements,

Ok so it's officially one week from today and I must admit that I'm really nervous now. I'm praying everything will go well and have no complications. I'm planning on taking:
Epifoam
Funnel
Boppy pillow
Meds
Wipes

If I'm missing anything or if you guys recommend anything else please let me know! Thanks!!

So I'm officially 4 days away from the surgery. I booked my hotel and have most of my things ready. It's starting to kick in now and there's no turing back!

Some of the girls have been saying that they love their new booties but the only downside is actually finding pants that fit the butt and are not too loose at the waist. If any of you found a store/brand that you guys favor after the surgery please let me know. I don't want to be too frustrated looking around. Thanks!

Hello everybody I made it to Tijuana safe. My day has finally came and I'm feeling a bit (more like a lot) nervous now.. I'll keep you guys posted, I hope it's not too bad and can hopefully update my profile in the upcoming days to let you guys know my progress. Wish me luck!

All went well.. He took 5litters of fat from me...

All went well.. He took 5litters of fat from me and injected about 1,300 cc in each cheeck.. But not all of it stayed in my cheeck some of it went to my hips... I didn't want that To happen because I know that I have a wide butt :( as of right now I don't see too much volume in my booty :(( which I'm really disappointed I hope that after the swelling goes down I can see a little curve at least.. My butt does look fuller and hips wider but I can't see much of a difference when I'm on profile view. I'm really swollen everywhere
And bruised on my back only. I had to stay over night Because the amount of fat that was taken out and
I'm glad I did I don't know how I would have managed At the hotel room. I'll keep you guys posted.

Today I went to my first massage and it wasn't all that bad.. I feel better though. I won't say I'm 100% but it did help.today in the morning when I woke up my whole face was swollen!! I got scared and called
The office which they told me it was Normal because I sleep on my belly. I also almost fainted when I took a shower today.. So it looks like today just isn't my day!! I hope tomorrows better.

Three days post op and I'm feeling a little better...

Three days post op and I'm feeling a little better now.. I still feel nauseated and still get headaches. The swelling has gone down a little(I can tell by my garmet) but I'm still swollen from EVERYWHERE! Ugh worst part of all is that I have been taking miralax but still have not had a bowel movement. I hope it's normal!! I finally went walking today at the mall nearby and let me tell you it was a bit of a challenge. I was walking like a turtle but I think it helped out a little bit. I'm not draining as much today as I had been the days prior so I hope it's a good sign. If I think of anything else ill update my profile ;)

I finally made it home, not quite a week but I'm home!! I came home with my drain on as I was told that it wasn't ready to come out. They told me it wasn't hard to remove so I'm hoping everything goes well when it's ready to. I'm still swollen but after my massage today I felt better. They had to remove the liquid stuck in my back and side with a needle but afterward I felt a lot better. I didn't get to see the doctor again which is so unprofessional in my opinion because he left on vacation. But anyways I'll upload pictures when I'm feeling better :)

Hello everyone, I'm feeling much better. Yesterday...

Hello everyone, I'm feeling much better. Yesterday I finally took my drain out which was semi-painful. I hadnt realized how much I underestimated what the healing process would be. I still am a little swollen from my face, arms, and feet which is very uncomfortable. I also wake up with really bad back pain. I realized that I have these weird symptoms that no one has, at least from the reviews I read. Anyways, my booty and hips have gone down considerably. I feel that my booty doesn't have projection at all and that my hips are toooo wide! I hope I find clothes that fit. I've tried to stay off my booty as much as possible but from time to time I do give in and lie face up with my boppy pillow underneath. I will post pictures up later on today.

sorry I didnt post the pictures up yesterday, my computer didnt want to work, but they are up. Ill try to upload some more soon.

As promised heres an update. It's been over a month now that I got my surgery. I feel MUCH better, I still sit on a pillow at work, I sleep on my sides and stomach, I still dont feel comfortable sleeping on my back. I didnt have to buy a new wardrobe because my pants still fit, except for some jeans, but Im still the same size. I still dont have sensation in the lipo'ed areas, which I hope is still normal. My weight went up, I am now 180 and hope to get back to the weight I was at, I did notice that after the surgery I was eatting a lot so Im trying to watch my food intake now. As for how it has changed my life I feel more confident now about myself and I think that radiates to other people, I do get a bit more attention from people (and pervs staring) but that doesn't bother me yet since no one has made any comments. My swelling has done down a lot and Im not sure about the feelings I have about my results I think it's kind of on the small side =/.. I still wear the garmet the whole day unless my outfit can't hide it, then I just wear it at night I think it has helped a lot in shaping my body.

I've uploaded some pictures, I will try and take more. They were taken with my camera phone so the quality is not all that good.

Sorry I fotgot to add my current measurements 38-32-46

So I am 5 months post op and feeling much better. I don't have anymore swelling but parts of my stomach (sides) are still a bit numb. My measurements are 38-31-45 my weight fluctuates from 169-172. But don't regret anything I feel much better about myself than i did before!! Idk if I'm obsessing though bcuz I feel like its kind of on the small side and want it bigger so I might do a round two later but I hope I keep these results. :)

Mexico Plastic Surgeon

Where do I begin, I feel that the doctor just does the procedures for the money not because he wants to help anyone. Right after the surgery he went into another surgery so he couldn't answer my questions. The following day I asked to speak with him so he could let me know (not the nurses) how everything went. He stayed with me maybe 3min answering my questions and then left because he had another surgery. My last visit to his office he wasn't there because he went on vacation which he should have at least said something, In case I had more questions. Also the day following my discharge I freaked out and emailed them with a question and never received an answer.. For all they know I could have died and try wouldn't have cared. So if you want a doctor that really cares for his patients he isn't the one to go to.

Merry Christmas. Thanks for updating. I think ur shape is really nice. It's more Victoria secrets model than king magazine but that's not a bad thing you like tall slim n classy. We are the same height n similar measurements pre op and I think u look nice. Was gonna go with Campos b4 too but his customer service was kind of wack

One more thing. What did you take that you didn't need? And what do you feel you should've brought that you didn't have?

Please update with pics. Your review is EXTREMELY helpful. I know you said you were getting your bra rolls done. Did Campos do them, if so, did he charge extra?

You look amazing! How your results now? Are you still numb in certain areas?

Slemus u look absolutely amazing beautiful. I have two questions for u. What liposuction method did the doctor used for your lipo? And how tall are u? Are u currently working out?
  • Reply
Thanks! I'm not too sure what type of lipo suction method was done. I know that it was aggressive lipo and they inject a saline solution to aid with the suction. I'm 5' 9 1/2" and no I haven't been working out but I should probably start.. Lol

Slemus you look so good gurl! Your waist is no way a 31. I don't believe it, lol. It looks like a 26" waist at the biggest. Definitely look really natural, like you wre destined for those curves :-)
