Hey ladies! So I've been researching butt implants...
Hey ladies! So I've been researching butt implants & reading all of the reviews on real self for months but I just recently created a profile. I have always been unhappy with my backside. No matter how many squats or exercises I did, my booty was still small. The only time I have any sort of butt is when I was pregnant or gained weight & even then it was still really small. It seems my butt is the last place I gain weight & the 1st place I lose it. I've been thin most of my life, but gained a lot of weight with 3 pregnancies & then after a car wreck due to medication. I lost the weight immediately after but the fluctuating turned my small booty into a saggy flat mess. I've tried squats & dead lifts & nothing helps. My back, butt & thighs all line up without any curve, just flat. I have to wear padded panties (my 5yr old calls em "mommy's butt bra" lol) just to look somewhat normal in my jeans. So after years of being insecure I finally made the decision to do something about it & get butt implants. At 5'7 1/2 & 120lbs I can't do the BBL & I'm wanting permanent results. I chose Dr. Ladd Atkins in Tulsa bc he's only about 1hr 45 min from where I live & he has all of the credentials & positive previews I was looking for. I had my consultation feb 19th. The staff was all very nice & Dr. Atkins was awesome. He was very professional but he's really laid back & instantly makes you feel comfortable. He answered all of my questions & fully explained the procedure, different placements, implants etc. So I paid the deposit & scheduled my surgery for June 12th. I'm gonna go crazy waiting til June!! But my husband works & I know I won't be able to drive for awhile so I wanted to make sure my kids were out of school. I'm doing the round implants & based on my measurements of 13.4 I can go between 275cc - 450cc. I'm not sure what I want to do. I don't want anything crazy like vanity wonder but I also don't want to be disappointed bc I went too small. It's not like boobs where u can compare by cup sizes. One size might look huge on someone & small on someone else with a different body type. Like I said I'm tall & thin but I do have breast implants DD. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated:) & I'll add some before pics & wish pics.
Here's some before pics...so gross. I do have big hips & Dr. Atkins is going to lipo my flanks & lower back & transfer what he can to my booty.
I think I've decided on a size:)
First off I wanna say thank you to all you girls for posting pics & documenting your journey's in such great detail! It's really helped me a lot with my decision. I think I'm going to go with the 450cc round implant. I still have 3mos to go & may change my mind, after all I'm a girl;) but I'm pretty sure 450 is what it's going to be.
I know that everyone's different but I just wanna get a general idea of how recovery has been for most of y'all. Bc I will be doing this narcotic free. Crazy I know. After my car wreck I was prescribed lortab & even taken as directed, you can still become dependent & unfortunately I did. I know My injury was more severe so was on them a lot longer than recovery for butt implants, but I still went through hell & I refuse to take to chance it. Dr. Atkins said he will prescribe ultram or tramadol instead. I have a high pain tolerance & I'm too determined for a booty to let anything stop me, but I just kinda want to know how you ladies have felt post OP. :)
Here's some pics of me before, some wish pics (not exactly size wise but I like the waist to booty difference) & a pic of how I don't want it to look (u can see the implant)
Booty Booty & more Bootaaay!!
Lol I'm going crazy waiting for real! All I do I feel like is count the days & research butts. I've googled & binged & looked at damn near every review on real self it seems. I swear I've looked at so many ass's lately I feel like a pervy dude!! I've seen the good the bad & the ewwgly! I'm so excited I just pray time goes fast & that I get the results I've wanted. & that I don't lose my sanity in the meantime waiting lol;)
Told u I'm goin crazy, I sound like dr f'n Seuss in my update. Really didn't mean to rhyme lol
Booked my hotel!
Ok got my hotel booked!! :) since I'm coming from okc to tulsa my pre op day is the day before my surgery & post op the day after, so I'll be needing my room for 3 days. I reserved a room at the Crown Plaza Southern Hills in Tulsa Ok. It's less than a mile( .18 mile) from the hospital so really close! It has a lounge/bar restaurant, fitness center, outdoor & indoor pool, lots of amenities that I probably won't use lol but hey maybe since I'll be there a day before surgery. & they have a deal with the hospital so I was able to get a discount, just let em know you're having surgery. I was able to get a room for only $109 per night.
Moved my date from June 12th to June 5th!! I know it's only a week but that's a freakin week less of waiting! Which is killin me ugh:( so exactly 90 days from now instead of 97 haha. So wish I could move it sooner but dr Atkins only does surgery on Thursdays & that's the 1st Thursday in June. We've had snow tho so My kids won't be outta school til probably may 27th now instead of the 23rd & I gotta drive em to Texas & get back. I'm happy I at least moved it a week up yay.
What I want
Here's some more pics. Some of me in jeans (without the pads) lol. I have no projection, no booty, zip zilch nada. & some pics of what I want my results to look like. I want the big projection & I like the big back scoop like Beyoncé. I want a round bubble butt & I want cheek creases? Idk how to explain it but I want there to be definition in my booty from my thigh. That make sense?? How do I explain that to my dr?
Kids n cooties
Nothin to do with booties but I wanna whine so anyway my youngest turned 6 yesterday
Idk why it only updated the 1st sentence of my review? & I'm sick & not in the mood to re type it.
Tick tock tick...
71 days 14 hrs 39minutes 56s 42 seconds til my surgery...time is dragging by soooo sloooow:(
That we don't get any tornadoes! There's a chance of tornado & severe weather today, we've got our bags ready & down in our storm shelter but I'm really hopin we don't. Last feb 2013 we started building a new house & on the may 20th 2013 tornado the house we were living in was hit as well as my kids school briarwood elem. Thank God our house that was bein built wasn't hit but We still lost everything in the other house & had to stay in a hotel til August when this house was finished. & we had renters insurance but the ins co filed receivership so like many ppl, we had to replace everything out of pocket. Not to mention our hotel we were stayin in was hit by the May 31st tornado. So like I said we really don't wanna go through it again...especially not in my dream house that we spent so much time & money havin built. & my babies can't handle it emotionally, losin little friends. So I'll be prayin all day Lord plz keep us safe, keep us in moore & all of Oklahoma safe. MOORE STRONG!!!
So I've been tanning so I can get some color before my surgery since I won't be able to go for a little bit after & bc it's that time of yr. I usually never burn but like a dummy I went in a super bed with brand new bulbs the whole time & did the leg tanner. So my little booty is on fire along with the back of my legs:( the rest of me is ok. So guessin it was the leg tanner that did it. Gonna take a few days off & take it sloooow from now on;)
Where is spring??!?
It's raining & chilly today:( typical Oklahoma...yesterday was sunny & shorts weather. So I'm bored. I hate boring days they make the time till surgery seem even further. 59 days to go! My kids are havin fun at least, they're building a fort/tent thingy lol.
Funny but so serious
So goin over supplies list for the sx & a thought occurred to me. How am I supposed to poop after sx if I can't sit for awhile?? They have female funnel urinals to pee but how do u take a sh!t? When u say u can't sit does that mean bc it's uncomfortable or bc ur not supposed to bend bc u could tear the incision? I can pee into somethin standing up if need be but I don't think I can boo boo standing. Im really stressin over this now.
