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.
Glad to see your review girl! Dr.Atkins is amazing! Im happy to now follow your journey too. Let me know what size you decide to go with.

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 have similar body type and want to go round with atleast 5cm of projection. 400-450cc will look great on you!

Thanks boo, I hope so!

Have you decided on a dr?

Pain questions

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. :)
I'm confused I thought round only went up 300cc???
Reply
No it goes up to like 600 and something ccs. At least through aart they do. I was going to get 379 but im tiny and thought it would look unatural
Reply
Salama uses Implantech and they go up to 460cc. But cohesive gel ones also go higher than 300cc. Here's the link to Silimed sizes http://www.eurosurgical.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Gluteal-implants.pdf.

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;)

See

Told u I'm goin crazy, I sound like dr f'n Seuss in my update. Really didn't mean to rhyme lol
We do have similar body's lol.. And girl 450cc on that tiny frame ! I'm anxious to see your results girl your gonna be banging! :) and you had me cracking up saying you felt like a perve looking at all this ass I felt the same way!! Haha...
Reply
Lol.. I agree yall do have similar body types. I cant wait to see her results.
Reply
For real I don't think I've seen so many booty's in my life haha. & as far as the 450 I know it seems big I just don't wanna go too small & I fear the booty greed. Plus the fact that I'm an oddy body, my legs are really long, I'm skinny, boobs are huge, no booty & big hips. Just like how my ass is the 1st place I lose weight & last place I gain it, my hips are reverse. Hips are the 1st place I gain weight & last place I lose it. & my actual hip bones are big, no matter how tiny I get. My granny calls em baby makin hips lmao.

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.

Forgot pics

Thats nice chica! You wont use any of it after your sx. But at least you will be comfortable!
Reply
I know lol but my girl & I will have fun before hand haha. She's goin with me instead bc my boo is bein weird, he don't want "the baby" goin to Texas or bein gone from him that long. Baby? Lmao she's bout to be 6! Whatever dude haha so he's stayin home with her most likely. But if for some reason he does go then he'll want nice. His exact words were "don't book somewhere that'll end u up on an episode of the first 48" lol crazy hubby
Reply
Lol girl he is too much. My boo didnt go either, not bc he didnt want to. So my girl came and we explored tulsa the night before. Margaritas at Tres Amigos! Dr orders lol. Your going to love it. I went to the mall today and everything looked so right on me with my new booty. Im still pretty swollen so I didnt buy anything but I can tell already Im going to look just right;)

New date!

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

Wtf

Idk why it only updated the 1st sentence of my review? & I'm sick & not in the mood to re type it.
Girl let me tell u bout those stars! Lol my husbands friend did em & he's good he's got a shop but this wasn't at his shop it was at the house drinkin. So he does the stencil & has me look in the mirror & I said I think they're lil crooked he said no no it's straight. My husband & 2 others said it was straight so I'm like maybe I'm trippin. He's does em & they're freakin crooked!!! I was so mad bc all he had to do was wash the stencil off & re apply it but instead permanently inked it on crooked. It took me 4 yrs to get my hubby to admit that they are crooked. I love tats I have em everywhere I'm workin on my arm sleeved. Anyways that's cool bout you're nephew I used to dance too. & I have my hubby's name on my wrist so don't feel stupid...he was ur husband at the time u did it.
Reply
Lol it's funny how men won't admit shit right?! Well I'm married to my third husband and needless to say all three names are on me. I have seven tattoos. My husband can draw really good and six yrs ago ( a few months bf we got together) he bought a whole kit from superior tattoo. So we have three tattoo guns and everything legit and it comes with two DVDs and I mean everything. My husband did a bunch on himself and they look really good so that's what he does for some family members as Xmas or bday presents. I've done three tattoos, and went over and fixed three other ones that someone else did. They were pretty good too. The first star I did on his hip, I was on the last leg and it dipped by his hip and when he jumped so did my hand and the gun, but it still doesn't look bad.
Reply
Ikr? I had 9 I think before I started my arm. It's 3/4 sleeved now. I love tattoos, I remember before I was old enough to get either, seeing pics of hot girls with tattoos & big fake boobs & being like that's gonna be me! Lol

Tick tock tick...

71 days 14 hrs 39minutes 56s 42 seconds til my surgery...time is dragging by soooo sloooow:(
Hey girl I know that feeling of anxiety! I'm excited for you and myself as well. I'm slated to get my butt implants on May 20th. I live here in columbus ohio..I'm getting the oval butt implants because I'm tall with a long butt and heard that it would look more natural on me with that shape...keep me posted ..I'm trying to figure out what are the must haves to buy? Like garnets and things
Reply
Hey doll thanks I'm super excited! The waits killin me!! That's great your surgery isn't too far off:) not much longer til we're both in the big booty club lol. I have been doin tons of research & I decided on oval as well bc you're right it does look better on taller & long booty girls. Can't wait to see your results I'll be following your journey:) & as far as the list I would honestly ask your dr, I haven't gotten my stuff yet but there's tons of posts on real self where girls list the things you may need...however I've also heard of people over packing & buying stuff they didn't use. So I'd check it out & just see what is necessary & whats not.
Reply
Hey girl I hope your results are exactly what you want ! Your tiny like me and since we are small the implants deff will give the scoop like your wish pic!!!! Sometimes I'm like Dammmmmmn it's my back and all a sudden this ass haha !

Prayin

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!!!
Oh no Lexi :(. Ur fam is so strong to have made it thru all of this . Girl I wld still be wrung out from stress. I can relate bc we have bad hurricanes sometimes, but I always say , we have days to prepare and leave , and get our meaningful things. You got have mere min and I'm sure not even that sometimes. My heart swells for you and I will be thinking about you and urs all day. We watched it on the news and stuff and you are the only one I'm actually hearing a first hand experience from. We don't know anyone from there. Well I will say a prayer for protection for y'all. Stay safe my friend. Love and hugs girl.

Thank you, It was really hard. My kids are now terrified of any storms my son has nightmares still & my 6 yr old started wetting the bed. So it's still fresh for sure. I'm just glad that we made it alive. The personal belongings are replaceable we're not. Thank God my husband makes good money bc we were able to replace everything. Idk what we would've done had it happened like 10yrs ago b4 he started his business. We had to replace clothes toys tvs all of our furniture etc. things like my wedding dress pictures my best friend that was murdereds belongings, I can't replace those so it stings. I definitely don't wanna start all over. The fact that it hit our house & then the 2nd one hit our hotel it felt like some final destination sh!t...like it was following us! I know bout them hurricanes too my parents live in east tx. Etoile to be exact lil hick town in the sticks lol... By lufkin tx. So they were hit by Katrina.

Ouch

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.
Lmmfao on ur burnt bootay!! My husband always pushes the limit even when I tell him ten min for his first time he pushes to fifteen and that's about what he looks like lol!! That's cool tents are popular in our fam too, and gurl ur house is beautiful!! We just got into an older house and we are remodeling room by room.
Reply
I know better too but I'm so impatient. Plus I had been sick not long ago so the antibiotics made me more sensitive to the sun. The burn wasn't bad it was the ITCHING of it healing that really drove me crazy. Girl do u know what I looked like walkin around everywhere scratchin my butt cheeks lmao!! Tell ur hubby slooow down unless he wants to be scratchin his ass in public gettin stank looks from ppl:) Yeah it's crazy how easily kids can entertain themselves with just a few blankets. & Thank you, we still haven't decorated the house yet so it looks bare to me but like I said we started building a few mos before the tornado so it was just finished in August & since we lost everything in the storm & ins co went bankrupt we had to replace everything out of our own pocket. So decoratings taken a back seat. That's a good way to do the remodeling, just take it room by room. Makes it seem less overwhelming that way.
Reply
Besides fam pic, I like bare . Less dusting, but seriously it looks really nice I like y'all colors too. This house is four bedroom two bath, we just moved in a month ago. My dad does excellent work tho so me him and hubby are a great team!! Overwhelmed is my middle name , I want everything done by tomm:/

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.
Lmao, I'm so sorry Lexi but I really laughed when I read ur update. You trip me out. Girl don't stress to much over it. Start taking fiber bf ur surgery and I'm sure ur dr has a solution for this . Then there's always google, I'm going look now!!
Reply
Lol I'm not worried about the constipation that's caused by the pain meds & I won't have narcotic. & I'm not worried about it hurting to go, I just read where ppl say they can't sit down or bend. Well u gotta bend to sit & sit to poop. So if u can't sit is it bc ur not supposed to bend bc it'll tear an incision? Or bc it hurts? If u can't bend u can't poop.
Reply
I didnt poop until like the 5th day. It was really hard to do! Like I felt handicap I was like holding on to the walls to try and keep myself up. I didn't take any fiber or anything because I didn't want to poop lol. I was worried that I would get some poop in my incision !!!!! And when I peed I literally just stood up and peed in a cup, and poured it in the toilet. It's way easier.

New price

I keep forgetting to update. I added lipo of my stomach to my sx so it raised the price a grand. New total is $8200.00 for butt implants, lipo of back, stomach & flanks with fat transfer to butt. 6 wks to go ladies!!
Girl you look tiny , where the hell is he gonna lipo fat from? Once ur booty is all big and stuff , hubby won't be able to contain himself!! Lol, I love ur shape from the back , when ur butts huge you gonna be something else. Mine was huge and perfect when I was young and boys used to tell me my ass was thicker than gumbo, which was dumb anyway bc gumbo is thin and a stew is thick lol
Reply
I am tiny lol but I lost 54lbs fast so there's some loose fat & he's gonna lipo whatever he can to add as much fat as he can to the implant & shape me. No matter how small I get my hip/flank area are big. I'm so excited tho I can't wait. You still have an amazing body boo! Especially with them new tata's. U were workin that bikini. I tried makin gumbo not long ago...didn't quite turn out haha. I'm a really good cook too, my hubby was like that's why Okies don't try to make Cajun food:( lmao
Reply
Thank you sweetheart;) gumbo and stew it all about the roux and pot. You have to use a good metal pot. Not a not stick or one with the thick metal piece covering the bottom. Use equal parts veg oil and flour. I normally use 3/4 cup of each. Cook between med and high heat . Stir a lot. Cook it til it's dark brown. Then put ur onions and bell pepper in. Bell pepper gives it the great flavor. Look I'm from louisiana and I burned a roux several times bf I got it right, so try a few times bf you give up. Hillshire farm smoked sausage and chicken is my fav but I also use shrimp and lump blue crab meat as a seafood one. Put in all ur fav seasonings too, paprika basil parsley cracked black pepper , get you some gumbo file too lol might have to order that lol. I love season all don't know if y'all have that but I put it in everything;)

Boo

I started my period (tmi I know but we grown so whatever) & my sx is in a month. So there's a good chance I'll be on my period come sx time:( Not the end of the world but it's gonna suck. On a happier note, not much longer til I'm a big booty b!tch;) sx is paid for, arrangements made for the hubby & kids, hotels booked, got my supplies for the most part..gotta fill & bring my meds with me the day of surgery, I'll get the script @ my pre op & dr wants me to bring some type of spandex shorts that will cover my whole booty & I need to get a boppy pillow..but I got everything else lol. Everything's pretty much ready to go. Now the nerves & what ifs are kickin in!!
Omg I'm so excited for you!! Or with you rather!! I really can't wait to see ur results. You will have big boobs itty bitty waist with a big booty;)
Reply
Thank you:) I'm so excited!! I've wanted this for yrs & I literally have been counting down the days since my consultation in February!! I'm starting to get nervous/scared now though. The what if thoughts keep poppin in my head. Like what if I don't wake up from sx etc. I'm not backing out!! I want this too bad & I've had lots of sx..boobs done twice, tonsils out, my tubes tied, knee sx..but this sx is different, it's not as common & I've never had lipo & I think that's what scares me the most. I've heard too many lipo horror stories. Anyways I'm def not backing out just worried about it not going good or looking good. It's just so close (27days) it's gettin too real.

Wow that's a lot, but have faith baby, u will be ok, and damn you had ur boobs done twice?

New size

Was lookin back through my review & noticed it said dd on my boobs. I hate that u can't edit ur review. Anyways my my breast implants are 650cc silicone & it's a DDD not DD. Ok on to the booty...I've been continuously researching & I've thought a lot about it & decided to do 360cc round butt implants intramuscular instead of the 450cc. My reason is if I do the 450 I would have to go subfascial & I don't want sub. Also the reason i picked 450 to begin with was bc that's as big as I can go based on my measurements of 13.4 & I wanted a drastic result & didn't want to have to get a revision bc I went to small. I didn't realize at the time that the implant only does so much, it's the amount of fat transferred that really makes a difference. My favorite results on real self are MissMia, Calinewbooty, & Angel87 & they all have either 350-360cc intramuscular with 300 400 & 600cc of fat. I know everyone's different & a lot of factors go in to what your results will be like different body types how much booty u had to start with implant placement size & shape of implant how much fat transferred..So I don't expect my results to look exactly like anyone else's I just like theirs & think that size will get me what I'm Envisioning & I no longer care about wish pics. I just want a big booty & want it to look good & a complication free surgery & recovery. 3 1/2 wks to go. Can't wait
Hi Lexi. I'm Porsha and I'm from Livonia Mich. I have the exact same problem you do and I'm also scheduled for May 5th. The anticipation is killer. Lol. I must agree. And I too am only 5'5 130. Very small with not much fat to work with so implants were my only option. I just don't know what size I want to opt for. I go Tuesday May 20th for my sizing. I believe I have a little more butt fat to work with than you, but I'm still flat as a board. I'm gonna post pics tonight.

Yes I'm really countin down! I'm so freakin excited it's finally my turn!
I just know I want as big as I can go but I don't wanna do subfascial so whatever he can fit intramuscular. My favorite results on here are missmia calinewbooty & angel87 & they all are 350-360 with 300-600cc of fat. So I'm gonna tell him as big as he can fit intramuscular whether it be 360 375 hell even 450 (I know that won't fit) & as much fat as he can transfer. I added lipo of my stomach on there awhile back so he'd have more fat to transfer. So it'll be comin from my back stomach & flanks.

I think 375 will look good on u, u already look good with the 301.

Hi Hun. Are you getting round or oval?
Reply
That I haven't decided lol. I thought round & my dr said based on the pics I showed him that I'd want round...but I'm tall & I heard oval looks good on tall people. So idk really..I'm all leg no torso. Idk if that matters. Lol

I made it

I'm not gonna lie I hurt so bad!! This is no joke of a procedure.it was worth it though!! I got 360cc round implants & 300cc of fat per cheek. Which is what I was shooting for. I have some pics I hate em bc even my friend said pics do not do it justice but I'll post em. I'm so thankful for the girls on this site bc w/o y'all postin ur journeys I'd be freakin right now bc it's in that ugly small high stage but I know from u girls that it gets bigger drops & fluffs. I'll post the journey tomorrow if I feel better, just wanted to update.
Speed recovery sweetie!! I love it!! Didn't know u we're getting fat grafting as well... I hope mine will look as good as yours...what about the incision and the drains? Those r the things I'm fricking out about...

It looks really good already! Happy healing Hun. Thanks for posting.

Day after sx

I'm feeling better right now but I still kinda sore. Not like it was yesterday. They almost kept me over night bc of how bad I was hurting..I stayed there til 6pm & my surgery was at 8am. I didn't want narcotic pain meds so it was a lot harder on me than most! I was up & down every 2 hours so I didn't get much sleep last night. I had shooting pains down my right leg. & my left lipo mark was oozing a little but dr said it's normal. I don't have drains he said there's not research showing that they help anymore than without them. Got my pre op at 9am today then headed home
Yay! Looks great doll! Happy healing!
Reply
Really?? No drains?? OMG I wish I had ur doctor!! And no pain meds huh? Girl u r strong!!! I'm getting a pain shot that lasts from 48 to 72 hrs... I'm brave but not that strong lol... Glad to know u r feeling better today.

Thank u, it was intolerable yesterday. Still hurts really really bad.

I'm back home

I had my pre op appt this morning slept most of today off & on & I hurt so bad. My butt is really tight & hard, I'm fixing to ice it. The anesthesiologist said it took 3 times the amount of anesthesia to keep me under during surgery. I've had 3 kids vaginally, one of them with no epidural & this is by far the worst pain I've ever felt!! I would recommend narcotics if u can take them bc omg w/o is a nightmare. It hurts to stand, walk lay down,..I can't get comfortable . I've been writing this post since before midnight & it's 430 now. I just keep passin out & wakin up. I've moved from mine & my husbands bed to the couch to my oldest daughters bed. I'm hurting! & I feel like the compression shorts make it worse!
Happy healing n congrats

Pain

How long is this going to last??? I am taking Tylenol & ibuprofen & it helps a little enough for me to fall asleep for about 2 hrs or so & then I wake up miserable. My incision site/ lower back hurts but it's mostly the shooting pains that go down both legs that's killing me. From behind my knees down my calves to my ankles. Anyone else have that happen?
Sorry to hear about your pain and discomfort. I've had sharp shooting pain from the buttocks to the lower calf muscles. I still experience this problem (less of an issue but still occurs) and I'm 40 days postop. Is your implant subfascial or within the muscle? Nerve pain is often worse unless your doc is giving you something like neurontin, which helps with the nerves - not a narcotic. Hang in there! It gets better. How is your flexibility? I can't even reach down to tie shoes.... Feel better!
Reply
It's probably ( I'm not diagnosing bc I'm not a doctor ) the sciatic nerve being pinched by the implant and buttocks (gluteus Maximus) and a muscle relaxer helps but if it persists u may need to take an anti- inflammatory and a cortisone shot. Massages on the butt helps with that sciatic pain as well but you can't have them yet. I am LMT n I help clients with that problem all the time. Also I have sciatica problems from time to time.
Reply
That's exactly what it is bae. The wreck I was in a few yrs back (that started the pill problem I had) I had 3bulged discs one pushing on my sciatic nerve..idk why it didn't occur to me. Dr A has me takin 800mg ibuprofen & walking around & it's helped a ton. I wasn't walking before I just laid there unless I had to use the restroom. It's gotten better now from walkin around a bit. Also RANDOM but I've always been able to bounce my butt cheeks lol one at a time & just outta curiosity I tried to see if I still could & I can lmao & it actually helps em feel a lil better bc u gotta flex I guess??

Better than what I had

I know it's nowhere near where it will be it's still in that early ugly high awkward stage but it's already an improvement from what I had...which was nothin.
Hey! I think I saw you last thursday at Dr.Atkins office. I use to post pictures on here, I got mine done by him too.
Reply
Yes I saw u there Wednesday lol. I was at my pre op appt I had my surgery that next day. Ur the original reason I looked into him :)
Reply
It gets even better. After a few months the implants will settle and your butt will round.

Tomorrow

Goin back to Tulsa tomorrow for my 1 wk check up..kinda excited to get out the house but dreading the ride there too. I just started feelin better so hopefully the trip doesn't wear me out too bad. Hubby has a biz to run so my besties gonna drive me in my suv & I'm just gonna lay my back seat down & ride on my belly. Fingers crossed it's a smooth ride!
I have this same problem. On my left side all the way down to my calf. It hits almost like contractions. Ever so often but never to late :) I hope it goes away soon. My right side is healing perfectly no problems Uugrr!! :(
Reply
They were the worste! My booty still hasn't been hurtin that bad really. Had it not been for those shooting leg pains I would've been ok. They haven't been happening as often or bad thank goodness. Sorry you're havin em too:( & mines the opposite..most of the time my right side is the side that the pain would be on. Hope u feel better soon!

1 week check up

Dr Atkins said it's lookin great & he's surprisingly amazed or happy?? Sh!t lol i don't remember the actual way he worded it but he's happy with how my incision looks already. He took all the tape off & showed me how to massage the implants down into place & wants me to at least once a day to help them drop...lucky for me my BFF that took me today is a licensed massage therapist so I'll be lettin her work her magic on it for sure! We had a blast today on our girls road trip since hubby had to work & my sons still at my parents in Texas fishin & lovin gettin to do boy stuff out in the country with his paw paw it was just me my friend & my 2 daughters..we decided to get sonic after my appt so we could eat on the patio since I gotta stand & the manager kept comin out & checkin on us & he actually went & made my 6 yr old some chz toys for free bc she decided she wanted some I thought he was just really nice but my friend said he was starin out the window at my booty the whole time he was inside & would sneak a peak when I wasn't lookin.. It was actually that way the whole day when we stopped at a gas station to pee, Walmart, the cd store..did some shoppin..just made a day of it to get me outta the house. I'm used to gettin attention & Ignoring it bc I have breast implants but I wasn't prepared for what addin a booty would do. I've never had a booty so I'm not used to booty attn lol so I was happy to know it at least passes inspection, on the other hand I'm VERY happily married & it gets on my nerves & makes me uncomfortable when guys think they can be so obvious about it..I got my boobs & butt done for MYSELF! to feel better about my body after having 3 kids..I get it'll bring attn but they could be quiet & discreet at least I feel but like I said I usually just ignore it completely. The one thing I can't stand tho is when I've got my kids with me..and THATS what reaaaallly pisses me off!! Wanna see me turn to my alter evil ego real quick? Hoot whistle hollar or approach me when I'm with my babies & I damn sure WILL embarrass ur a$$;) Sorry had to rant/vent..anyhoo other than that had an awesome day with my girls & the bestie & my booty is feelin & lookin better by the day. Oh & just another random bit.. It's really embarrassing & comical havin to wait for the hatch to come up & belly slide out the back of my SUV everytime we went somewhere.

Nerve pain

So I've been feeling better since Dr. Atkins told me to start walking a little to relax..the nerve pains haven't been bothering me but I guess I over did it today with all of the walking bc I woke up from a dead sleep hurting bad. Tried taking my ibuprofen & walking but it wasn't helping.. My husband also keeps the house really cold esp at night & when I'm cold I tense up more so I filled the bathtub with hot water to right above my ankles & have been pacing in the tub & it's helping. Thought I'd share that for some of you ladies having the same issue, it may help u too.
Lmao lex I wld so cut up if I seen somebody getting out the hatchback . Still laughing...... And at the alter ego , we watch UFC so hubby says I turn into Rhonda rousy. Of course they are gonna stare lil miss hottie, I get you about the baby situation tho. Praying ur pain is still easing baby;-)
Reply
Lol it was pretty funny lookin I'm sure. Lmao @ Rhonda rousy..my husband calls mine Carley..he'll actually be like "ok Carley can my wife come back out plz?" About the stares I ignore it..it's the DAMNS & whistles & ow ow's & ish that irks me. Polite quiet observation is alright lol. Funny how they never do it when hubby's with me..then again he's 6'4 280lbs & mean;) it pisses my son off too & he's 9 (but bigger than me) he'll actually call em out & be like stop lookin at my mama. Good thing he wasn't there yesterday bc he called when we were shoppin & my oldest told him bout what had been happenin & he told her to punch the next one that does it in the face!
Reply
Yea he's right !!! What ur saying is true tho, I never look back or make eye contact bc then they think ur into it. Lmao @ Carley , not that spousal arguing is ever funny but I cld see you pissed off lookin super tiny and him big as hell . Me and my husband are the same height so we cut up and I'm like my mama always told me pick on someone my own size ;•]

Hey my Lovies:) sorry I've been mia..everything's going good no bruises or swelling & haven't had any pain at all & I can sit drive etc. my stitches are dissolved & I've been putting mederma on my scar. It's really not bad at all. The booty greeds real I definitely want bigger! I know I'm still a mo & a half in & there's still fluffing & dropping etc so it's too early to talk about all that but I do want it bigger. It's definitely better than what I had before tho & I'm so happy to be able to wear jeans or leggings & look normal!! I did tell my dr that it's not as big as I wanted & I want it fuller on bottom. He said I'm really early & It will drop & fill out the lower & fluff up more but for some reason I'm not completely happy at my 3 mo check up sept 4th then he will lipo & add more fat w/o charge. So that makes me happy bc either way I'll get what I want. I'll post some pics of my scar when I get home xoxo Lex
Oh my what a diff your before and your now in jeans !!! Loveeee it!!! I'm assuming you had to buy new jeans? From what size to what size ? PS your before is me currently :(
Reply
Omg I know I was just lookin at the side by sides on my phone of my jeans earlier today. I had forgotten how flat I actually was! I haven't bought any new jeans yet actually..I can't fit into my 0's but luckily I had some 2's in my closet & those work they're just skin tight in the booty. Do u have ur surgery scheduled?
Reply
LOVE the Rocks! They are my favorite jeans ever! They look super gorgeous on you!! I think you look great! Hopefully your end result will be exactly what you wanted, but if not-hey do what you gotta do to get there girl. It's your body and you should be happy with it :)

Incision

It's really hard to take pics of ur own butt but I'll try & post better ones that are centered & not crooked as soon as I can get someone to take em. Anyways it's lookin pretty good the scab just came off one side & a little bits left on the other side..been puttin maderma on so hopefully it works if not I'll have to laser it.
You are a life saver posting all of this. I am doing it in less than a month and I was back and forth on the size 400cc round or 500cc oval. I think I'm going to do the round. I'm glad you described the pain and the benefit. If it is worth it in a month or so, I'm totally down. thanks for all the info!
Reply
You're welcome:) i know how hard it can be trying to decide what size & shape..my advise is to go for whatever size U want..my dr gave me my available choices based on what would fit in my body & he recommended 300 but I wanted 360 the highest I could go w/O having to do subfascial. I think I would've been really disappointed had I listened to him & went smaller..I KNOW I would've. So just go w/ what u want & we're girls so we're allowed to change our minds a million times lol. I completely feel the surgery was worth it & I was in some major pain bc of my sciatic nerve. Good luck girl can't wait to see ur results:)

No I'm planning on scheduling a consultation in the next 2 wks, hopefully I don't back up :-/

Here's a couple pics of shorts & leggings. Way better than what I had before, I at least look normal but still nowhere as big as I wanted but it's still early so I'm being patient????. It gets a lil softer & better by the day. Other than that nothing new..my 3mo check up will be sept 4th. Oh & I went red!
Thank you! I will try!

Dress shopping

I have a friends wedding coming up that requires a bachelorette dinner & party, rehearsal dinner etc so I went shopping. Still not my big pow booty I'm wantin but it wasn't nearly as frustrating as usual trying stuff on bc I didn't have to spend hrs trying to find something that's cute & hides my flat booty. Usually I gotta pass up any fitted dresses & go for the flowy ones. So same update it's been..better than before but not what I want yet.

Dress shopping pics

SCARY!!

So I'm sitting on the edge of the tub shaving my legs & my left implant TURNED INSIDE OUT! It didn't hurt at all but it freaked me the **** out. I turned it back right & text Dr. Adkins a pic & he called me immediately & said it wasn't a big deal as long as it didn't hurt & that it probably won't happen ever again but if it does or it's something that really bothers me then it's an easy fix with just a stitch. My implants are intra muscular so I didn't think it was possible for the implant to turn but it did. I guess for now I'll just trust that it's not a biggie & leave it alone.
Hey girl, how's your appt go?
Reply
It went good, my implant is for sure still in the muscle. I'm fixing to update:)

That's awesome! Whew-sigh of relief for you!

Appt

So had my 3 mo chech up yesterday & my implant is for sure intra muscular & the implant is still inside the muscle. It's not normal that it turned it's actually rare but it is one of the possibilities that can happen to anyone. The implant turned inside the muscle from the pressure of sitting on the edge of the tub bc it was a tight fit to begin with. He said the same thing that it doesn't happen very often & probably won't happen to me again but if it does then it's easily fixed with a stitch to keep it in place. I don't like that it happened but I knew there'd be risks goin in. He wants me to wait & give it til dec at my 6 mo to decide on if he needs to do a touch up as far as bigger & filling the bottom out. He thinks it'll get there on it's own & it has improved a ton already so I'm willing it give it 3 more mos & then if it isn't where I wanted then he'll do it. So I'll see if the implant turns again in that time & if so I'll have him put a stitch in when/if he does the touch up.
Glad to heard your appt went well. How will he do a touch up to fill the bottom? I do not see any fat on you to do a Brazilian. I did the massage for the implant that I asked you about and that side of my butt did change, became smaller.I am afraid that I killed dine if the fat cells around the implant ( in top of) The implant is the same place I think bcause I am flat in the bottom, that is why I am courious how can a touch up be achived.
Reply
Flatter on the bottom is part of a lot of people's problem. U didn't kill any fat cells. Trust me I have enough fat for a brazillian. I didn't think I'd get very much the 1st time but he got almost 1000cc's. But for the touch up he would go in & lipo under my thigh where it meets my booty to create more definition & sculpt it rounder.
Reply
Glad to hear u r ok. How can he put stitches to hold it if it happens again? Will he reopen ur incision? Isn't reopening it a compromising of the implant? In my understanding, unless u r getting new ones, the reopening can bring infection to the one already in. Just curious though I'm not stating/ advising anything...I know you r always nice and kind to everybody who posts on ur page but some ppl don't know the difference between a comment/ opinion and a statement/advice. I'm just being careful not to misunderstood. I love ur results and think the size suits u well.

Update

Pretty much the same old same old. So still getting a little softer & bigger slowly by the day. Still not as big or round at the bottom as I want but WAY better than what I had before. Just going to be patient til Dec & see how it turns out. Haven't had any other complications or issues with the implant turning again. I've deleted most of my pics unfortunately due to pervs..sad that that's even an issue on here bc this sites meant to help other women but this is the internet so it is what it is. I'll leave up the few I have until that becomes an issue too. Hope y'all are all doing well ladies!! Xoxo Lex
The implant turning under he muscle is impossible unless a bad job has been do e, ladies do not turn a blind eye to the reality of a dodgy job please that is not normal!
