BBL 2nd round and 600 cc implants for boobies... Love Dra.Cardenas! - Tijuana, Mx

I thought it was time for a change! So I decided...

I thought it was time for a change! So I decided to get a mommy transformation. At first I was going to go with Dr. Buenrostro, I did my research and heard nothing but bad things about him! I had emailed them my pictures and He he quoted me 5000 for Tummy tuck and Lipo and FG. That was a great deal but got scared! I also got a quote from Dr. Campos but his quote was $7300 TT,Lipo,FG I hear his great to but ugh a little pricey for me! Dr. Cardenas Quote was 6000 but if I get the breast augmentation it would be 8,500. At first I was undecided but the reason why I'm going with Dr. Cardenas, is because I've seen a lot of really good reviews. I called to schedule with Fatimeh and she had the 27th available that was awesome.I'm still undecided if I want to stay at the recovery House? On The 12 I went into the office to get my blood worksheet thing came out good. yeay! I met Fatimeh, she was wonderful she was really nice. I didn't get to see the doctor she was in surgery while I was there. One thing I hate is communicating through emails it sucks I'm horrible with computers... Oh well I thank all the people on Real self You guys You guys motivated me to do this review. I'm Confused what do I need for the day after surgery???? I already got my medicine! I I know I need a boppy pillow or what ever is called ! I still have a lot to do Omg the 27th is almost here how exciting!

OMG!!!! in one more week I will be in San Diego!...

OMG!!!! in one more week I will be in San Diego! Getting ready for my big day....I don't have anything ready for after surgery just my medicine ...that's all .. What else do I need??? What kind of boppy pillow do I need? I had payed for my stay at the recovery house but for some reason my money got refunded! Weird so now I'm doubting if should stay or go home ?? I'm so close to my day and now i feel like backing down ....

How's it going? You are not backing down are you?

How you been? Have not heard from you!!! Im nervous about the implants size, as you know I am 36A and I tried on 600 ccs and liked it, omg im nervous, I dont want to go too big. Did you get silicone implants? were they over or under the muscle?
Reply
Hello I been good well let me tell you my friend is a size A on breast and she got 450cc but her breast look small and she wishes she would've gone bigger so now she's going back to replace them and get them bigger .... mine look huge but that's because I had big breast to start off If I was you I would do the 600 ...I have no clue how she put them but I believe it's under the muscle I got silicone and i would recommend you to go big you dont want to regret it you might as well if ur paying the money

So mmm I'm going to see Dr. Cardenas before she goes on vacation. I have some concerns my belly button has a black line that keeps extending? I can't walk normal I can't stretch my left leg. For some reason I feel like something is wrong maybe she hit the muscle, nerve or something I hope not ! Lets see what she says!

Ohhhkay, so I seen Dr.Cardenas she looked amazing...

Ohhhkay, so I seen Dr.Cardenas she looked amazing like always. She said I was very swollen wth???? I love my results now! I cant imagine what I will look like after swelling goes down! Well my right drain was taken out but the left is still in its still 75 to 100 cc every 24 hrs. I was wearing my garment to loose so she made it tight and suggested to get tailored! Aww I can't breath but I guess beauty is pain ??? She said that the reason my leg feels funny was because my left drain is probably sitting on my nerve\ muscle. She prescribe me some muscle relaxers. She said my belly button is really humid that I haven't been cleaning my belly button right. But I would clean it 2 or 3 times a day but I was not doing correctly! I guess ur supposed to stick the Qtip all theeeee way inside until it touches the belly button wall and clean the inside. That is not comfortable at all it hurts. I also have to put a gause folded into a cone and stick the tip in just to keep it dried . She said my stitches have to stay in until completely healed maybe a month. I also bought the silicone stips from Fatimeh 2 strips for 100, hope they work?! Hope my extended tummy tuck scars fade but I can't use until scabs come completely off!
Wow you look amazing what difference! I love your arms too. I want my arms that small as well.

So ummmmm!!!!!! I can't distinguish my back or what's my butt idk wth!!!!!! Can it be the swelling? This is horrible hope it looks good like the rest how does the swelling last?
What did you have done on your arms? Did you have loose skin on them? I need to have my arms done but I dont want a lift I want to try something non surgical/scarring first. You look AWESOME!
Reply
Thank you! I did Lipo on my arms I didn't have loose skin but now I do! My arms look a lot smaller.
Reply
I have a few questions. Did you get prepared for the surgery with the iron pills and orange juice, the body lotion, water, and exercising? When you went in for surgery what was your red blood cell count? What kind of anesthesia did she use with you? And did she give you medical passes to cross the border? Was there any of the lipo included in the tummy tuck or you paid as extras? I am just under a month till the surgery! God i'll be nervous. How are you doing? Still in california?

Why did u get the silicone strips? What for they do? I have the same issue w my butt tight now. I think part of it swelling and the other is posture.

So I haven't updated my leg got better after the drain got removed!
So what is it about your boobs you did not like? did you want them higher? what was the reason she gave you for not going under the muscle? They do look bigger and natural, unlike some others that seem to have them way too high and deformed at first because of how swollen you are. I was looking at your before and after pics and you never looked way too swollen from your boobs.Where did she put them through? Your butt is still looking round and bigger than your before pics. For your tummy you did not post front before pictures. Maybe you are still swollen? Are you happy with the TT or not? Have you been using ur CG all the time? Are you back home or still in California? In my opinion you look fine. Maybe a picture taken from a further distance so we can see your full body?
Reply
It's my fault cuz I didn't ask questions or didn't do my research on boobs and not only that my boobs where big to start of so I don't blame the doctor I just wish the were higher I wanted the fake look my breast look to natural and I don't like that she did incision through old scar I had. my tummy tuck is great scar is really thin compared to what I've seen Well my butt is still there but i feel like its going away fatimeh said to wait until 8 weeks im thinking of getting my breast redone ...I'm back home already ill be going back in 2 weeks for a check up
Reply
So you wanted high profile full round big breasts? I think those ones go under the muscle? What profile did she give you? Maybe with a good bra? What does she tell you?

So I talked to Fatimeh, I sent her pics of my incisions she seen the belly button she said to clean it with Qtip and make sure it's dried and the side of my the incision that opened up but she said its closing fine. I also told her about the sagginess in my boobies! She said they look fine. Butt i kept telling her they were to low not what I wanted. I had ask for big I wanted them to choke me if possible she said well you did get them big and they are heavy that's why they start to sag!!!!....I was like WTF that's BS there's girls out there with way bigger boobs than mine and 5 years later they are still nice and they dont sag like mine !!!!!!!!!well I didn't tell her that BS part.. but It went through my head . Its only been 4 weeks what's gonna happen in 1 year there gonna sag even more. But she said give it 2 more weeks to see what happens And talk to the Doctor when you come for your check up tell her how you feel she said it could get fix so idk what she meant with that but if in 2 weeks they keep sagging these suckers are coming off I don't like saggy boobs I mean I got a reduction and lift hoping that the day I had extra money I would just get and implant and make them look fake and sexy but now I regret it my boobs are not perky like they where my nipples where high now they are not ugh... this is no bueno.....I hope they can fix it before my skin starts stretching even more ay yayayaiii seriously I want to cry I mean boobs are good but what's gonna happen in a couple of months??? If its only been 4 weeks I loved how they looked the first 3 weeks! Being on real self and others people profiles is getting to me depression is a BITCH I been crying for the past couple of days just stressing ugh but I love the tummy tuck looks great but I'm still swollen! The hips and butt are okay! Lots of the volume has gone down well at least its better than what I had.....
What size did you end up with? and What profile, ultra high, high, moderate? You should have went with Ultra high like you said... Now you are upset!! I think you look good. But everyone paints their own picture. I still think you look grrreat!!!! don't be upset... : )

I'm a 38 DD or 36DDD I got 400cc and I asked the doctor that I wanted big boobs i even told her if possible high I wouldn't mind if they would choke me I told her I like the fake look high pornstar look I even showed her lots of wish pics I just never asked wat she had in mind !

So I'm mad so the excuse I got was I have a big torso and no matter how big I go they will never be perky WTF that's some BS so why didn't they tell me that at first. I showed her pics of what I wanted before surgery and a the day before! I am so effffn bumed I schedule another doc appointment with different surgeons just for a 2nd and 3rd opinions and options! This is really depressing.....

Dont stress as much and try to relax. You are still recovering and your body may resent it. It can all be fixed.

I have the same "depression" going on! Ughhh it's miserable! I bust into tears when people tell me I look good cuz I'm thinking, ((yeah cuz u don't see me naked))... THAT'S HOW I THOUGHT BEFORE SURGERY!!! I wanted the mm to change that way of thinking! Y can't I just take the compliments and feel confident about myself :0( u look great! And I honestly think ur boobies look GREAT! Hope the depression goes away soon...

So the doctor called and said that she is gonna fix it. She said that it was her fault for not letting me know at first what to expect I feel relived thank you god! Now I just got to wait 4 months for my body to heal!
i am so glad they are fixing it for you. are they going to put them under the muscle? my friend got her salines removed and got the 400cc silicone cohesive gels under the muscle and it really helped with the sagging. if she cant get it under your muscle with 400cc, maybe go smaller? but i dont know im not a doctor but i can see a difference under the muscle VS over. I am getting 325-350cc under the muscle july 2nd, so we will see, my breasts now are saggy and basically feel hollow lol. i really really dont want them over though, so i have to remember to tell my dr to not put them in if he cant fit them. i run and jog alot and dont want implants to effect that. or else i would probably go with 450cc. anyways good luck and the 4 months will fly by!!!
Reply
That's great news! Si glad she would take respinsability and call you. How is she gonna fix it?
Reply
She said that she should've explain to me at beginning that the only way I would archive the goal that I wanted was with 1200 cc implants but she said that she will put the implant under the muscle and do another reduction to the skin! Just to make me happy that she don't want to see me depress

Round 2

Hello ladies, I haven't updated in a while I've been busy working. So I'm going for Round #2 on the 27th of September I'm so excited I'm so glad I chose Dr. Cardenas. She is one amazing doctor. I've decided I'm going to replace my breast implant with an 800 cc high-profile under the muscle and a lift to the breast ... I have lost some volume to my butt. But I have also been sitting on it since day one and doing cardio witch i was told not do so . So that is why I'm thinking of adding another 1000cc to the butt 200 to the hip and lipo on my Upper, lower ,mid back Stomach ,side ,legs and arms I really haven't been dieting or exercising. For the past month I still haven gained weight I have lost 30 pounds since surgery a total of 50 pounds since I started this mission. 0nce I go for this second-round. I will get back to eating healthy. And head back to the gym I'm so exited
