Everyone please say a quick prayer for me and wish me luck :) ill keep you updated on the days to come!

Post op

So my surgery went good...the next morning when I woke up they had me sit up and I got dizzy and almost fainted which they said was normal, after breakfast I almost fainted twice so dr pantoja ordered a blood test, they came back saying my hcg level dropped to 8 from a previous 14 :( . He ordered two bags of blood to bring me up to normal I felt a lot better after that. I'm back at home now and I must say I recommend dr pantoja and his staff to everyone! He has an amazing personality and so does his staff. The nurse Naty stayed with me in my room the whole night she made sure I felt comfortable and had everything I needed. I'm so glad I went with them. About the procedure I must say the bbl was the most painful the first two days, it burned and was very uncomfortable, Naty said its due to the lipo and fat transfer. Now it's not that bad, the stomach just feels awkward since I'm haunches down and there's alot of pressure on my breast..he was able to fit 495 cc ;)

3 days post op

Just got out the shower. . Feeling more relaxed. Im still walking very slowly and haunched over. ..slowly standing up..so far I think my results are already looking good. Bless my fiancee for helping me..I feel so needy cant really do much on my own

My compression garment keeps riding up so it sits just under my boobs and moves above my belly button and way above my tummy scar line. When I woke from sx, my garment was sitting above the scar line. Should my garment be covering the line or sitting just above it? My tummy between my new belly button to just below my scar line has been completely numb since sx and I'm how 8 days post-op so any feedback would be welcome! TY!

Hi Cyndy, you look amazing!! I was wondering if you can give me Dr. Pontoja's information, does he have a website? I've been looking at his work on here, and I love it! I know he's the surgeon I want to go to:) I'm looking into getting the procedures you got done. I'm super excited and scared but I know it will be a great change for me. Thank you for sharing your story.

Hey Cyndy2469 you look great! I have a similar pre-op body to what yours was, I'm wondering about ur BA. What size did you get? Over the muscle or under? What incision method? Any suggestions for me? I'm having all te same procedures you did. (Sorry, totally bombarded you with questions)
