Hi RS ladies! I'm 31 years old. Mother of 3 kids....
I'm 31 years old. Mother of 3 kids.
5,4 160lb(gained weight :-( )
I'm having BBL&TT surgery on 22nd November.
My original date was October 25th but nobody couldn't take care of my kids around that time so I had to change my sx date to November :-(
I still don't know what should I take with me to club Med.
Day after tomorrow
I haven't even packed yet. I'm so busy I hope I won't forget anything.
I'm at clubMed
Mr Marvin, Suzan, Fabiola, MariMariposa and I went out to eat. I bout to go to bed. I'm sharing room with MariMariposa. We have been texting each other for awhile and we finally got to meet each other! She is so cool :)
They said I gave to stay at Dr. Campos's office tomorrow since I'm getting TT. I wish I can come back to clubMed but oh well. I'll be sleeping anyway so it's all good.
Good night everyone.
Me and MariMariposa need to leave here by 7:00 so I bout to take a shower and say good by to my stomach lol
I'm still calm. But I'm sure I'll be scared as soon as I get to the office.
I'll update again later.
Let me tell you...
He is so sweet too :)
MariMariposa is going in first so I'm waiting her to come out on the bed chilling. In still calm but I'm sure I'll be little scared once I walk in to the surgery room.
BTW, Angie is not here and other staff are so nice.
MariMaripsa is out
So it's my turn now!
I think pill they gave me making me sleepy tho. Wish me luck.
Laying and laying and laying..
But I'm glad I'm not in pain tho. I think I'm getting good sleep than home. I only sleep 3-4hours at home a day.
Oops! I've never uploaded my wish pic yet.
I hope I look like my wish pic.
I asked for a water first ting in the morning it was great water! Almost 36 hours of no water!!!
Anyway, I asked nurse to let me up and let me see my body. Since I haven't seen my own body all night after the surgery.
She said she gotta put me in the garment first. It was hurt. Not bad but my left side hip was hurting the most.
I put garment on then I walked to mirror... Idk. I just don't know yet.
My booty looks smaller than I asked. My belly bottom looks long. I hope those will look better. If not I'm gonna cry and I don't wanna see my hubby like this.
More before photos
Day of surgery.
I'm doing great here. Sometimes I have sharp pain on my hips but that's bout it.
I haven't take a shower so I haven't see my body myself yet bit I promise I will take some picture and post.
I just saw dauphin from clubMed window. It's really beautiful and calm here.
I just took a first shower and I feel so good. Everyone here take great care of me and I'm just chilling :)
I was scared at first but she was really gentle and felt so good. A lot of drain came out from my lower back and my booty looks popped even more :)
Maripas will come back tomorrow again and I'll get massage.
I've been reading so many review on here and I knew about Dr. Campos, Marvin, Suzane, Fabiola, Alicia and Maripas so I feel like I met celeblity or I'm living in RealSelf world lol
Like everyone else says on here, feels like home here.
I'm a shy person who speaks English as second language but they make me feel like a home. I love it here.
What you need
As you know, my Doctor is Campos. Where I'm staying is clubMed.
I emailed Mr. Marvin from clubMed for few times to make sure that what do I need to bring with me.
His answer was "we have everything! Just bring two PJs and slippers"
I was like that's it!? But I'm gonna tell you what I really needed here.
1, tooth brush
2, two PJs & few under wear
3, slippers and flip flops
4, cell phone charger
5, computer *option (if you don't have smart phone or tablet)
6, comfortable clothe to go home with
7, buppy pillow if you are getting BBL
That's it! They have everything else.
Me and MariMariposa bought pee funnel but we didn't need it. Because they have cup for us to pee and it was much easier to use than pee funnel.
I took shampoo and conditioner but they have them here too.
They have plenty of robes also.
What I wasn't sure about was vitamins and pain medicine and stuff.
Mr. Marving gonna take you to pharmacy If you get prescription from doctor.
Leaving earlier than I was planning on
Originally, I was gonna stay till 29th if drain will come out that day but they said it doesn't seem like drain will come out by 29th so why not going home and come back? Right?
I'm living in San Diego so I can do that. It's just I didn't want to.. because I have little kids who doesn't understand what drain is.
I'll miss clubMed big time.
Susana, Marvin, Fabiola, Alicia, Michel, Maria, Maripaz.. Mucho gracious!!
My husband loves my body even though my body is still swollen all over.
Having delicious dinner but I can't eat a lot like used to because I got MR and my stomach is tight.
It is so hard not doing anything at home and it is hard trying to get comfortable position.
I hope I will have flat stomach after swollen is going down.
I have follow up appt tomorrow so I'll post more details after I get US side after the appt.
only thing I can tell you is... His staff frustrat me.. Sooooo much. I'm keeping myself calm. It's not Dr. Campos. It's his staff. Ugh.
I know a lot of ppl love how he make beautiful hourglass shape so do I.
But his staff is unprofessional. Be aware if you are going to have any kind of procedure with him.
It looks infected and staring to opening.
I went to see Dr. Campos on December 4th and he said "it's normal. Keep it dry and it'll be ok"
But my infection looks bigger now. Is it really normal? I don't mean to scare anyone but I need to know it's normal like Dr. Campos told me.
Everything else is great.
I love my body. I really appreciate Dr. Campos.
But I'm scared because my incision doesn't look good.
I was taking anti biotic till this morning. It's been two weeks since I start taking anti biotic so he didn't prescribe anymore.
This is the photo of my incision
Or someone had same problem and healed?
He was really nice but It did hurt. I ended up with 6 stitches and I'm going back there in a week to remove the stitches.
I hope my incision will close nicely.
1 month post op
I still don't feel 100% yet.
It's been 1 month so I thought my stomach will be thinner by now.... Not really. I hope I'm still swollen.
I don't wanna believe this is my final result.
So I have few selfies to share with you guys.
He is an artist! He knows what is hourglass shape is. I researched for a long time and U.S. Doctors are good too but their work and price were not something I was looking for. I know Dr. Campos is busy but I wish he could make time for me for pre-op. After care was great. Staff is..... Like many people on here said they need some training. He is a great doctor that's why I don't want him to lose business because of his staff. Payment process was pain in my butt too. I didn't wanna carry that much money but oh well I didn't get robbed at least. Oh and he is handsome!!
