Had my 2 consults w/ NJ Dr. READ my reviews - I chose Dr. Metha in New Brunswick, NJ
The next day - I went to Dr Metha's office in NewBrunswick, NJ
it was completely night and day. The office felt like a doctor’s office and was set up like a dr office. The receptionist came out with a smile on her face, shook my hand - she was inviting and made me comfortable right away. These small things made a big difference for me. I never paid this much attention to details like this until ;) , the other guy was like literally talking to a robot! no lie! Anyways the consult went good we went over options, etc... he negotiated pricing with me which was super - in the end his price was 2g's less than the robot's prices! Very happy about that!!! I can’t even see price negoation with the other dr office. They did not give the vibe that negation was an even an option. Anyways after meeting with the doctor - i met back with his assistant/receptionist - she was SO NICE! it was like talking to one of my best friends - her personality was very down to earth and just overall cool! she sealed the deal for me. Actually i knew as soon as i went in - that this would be the place for me. To top if off - the dr has great credentials, check his website. The receptionist was his patient 11 yrs ago and the nurse on staff who was also very cool had just had a BBL last Friday! So they all had me sold. They made me feel super comfortable. I would highly recommend them. Personality has so much to do with making this experience comfortable. Also the office is located a block away from 2 hospitals that the doctor is affiliated with. It felt so right all the way around. I let a $400 deposit and have my appointment set for May 2nd! I'm super excited! His staffed gassed me all up. Fingers crossed I'm still this excited after all is said and done. But I have a good feeling about them. This dr. was referred to me by a friend's friend who had work done and she was extremely happy.
His website is: http://mehtaobesitycenter.com/
He specializes in weight loss and added on body sculpting, BBL, etc... to round out his practice and offer solutions to people who needed help with stuff other than losing 100,200+ pounds. He seems like the real deal. He was not familiar with realself, he says his practice flourishes from word of mouth and he’s been in the area so long that he’s just known. He showed me his schedule in his phone, says he does about 5-6 BBL’s per week in his surgery room on site. He does gastric bypass types of surgery at the hospital. My countdown begins. Pray for me.
Not telling boyfriend about BBL, just coming home brand new - gotta do me
I now weigh 178 - I've lost 21lbs... preparing for my new bod and BOOTAY :)
I lost the weight doing a 20 day full body cleanse -http://dherbs.com/store/full-body-cleanse-p-1.html#.U0wz7fldWSo
Also, after I did a 3 day juice cleanse from http://www.jusbyjulie.com/
Getting my ish together....got blood wk done today + make me heal pills came in yesterday
what kind of cream should be rubbed on booty and stomach post op - Liop & BBL?
Trying to loose 10 lbs by surgery date - 2 wks! after surgery i still want to loose around 20lbs
i want all my results to b dramatic... weight loss and butt.... i just hope the butt does not go down as i'm still losing weight. may also try http://www.herbalife.com/ in future... anyways - i'm so anxious thinking about all of this. thinking if i should push my date back to loose my weight first etc.... but i reall just wanna go for it now and stay on schedule - and do things right at the beginnig on the summer so i can get it all over with and hit my 6 week early june - all floss in my new bod all summer :)
You do loose weigt automaccly from the surgery right? does anyone know how many pounds you loose on average from lipo- or is it minimal since the fat is being reinjected to the booty?
More ish... i'm getting together - Got my antibiotic percsription filled
Spoke to my doctors team last week with a bunch of questions....
they initially gave me pre surgery info/ papers on what to do and what not to do. so i'm thinking ... damn thay have not told me anything about what to do or not to do for after the proceedure. i call them up and the girl is telling me stuff, i'm asking about healing time, lipo boards, satge 1, stage 2 garments etc... - and she like well we give you a paper for post care, etc... i'm like well when you gonna give it to me? People need that info upfront so they can prepare and buy stuff, etc... not after surgery. i'm trying to prepare and she talking bout she gonna give me post instructions later - like i'm a be running around after surgery getting stuff. she pissed me off a bit... but i did feel better that they at least have info to give and know the process etc... cause i was starting to think like - why they not telling me certain stuff and wondering do they know all teh in's and out's, etc... I'm confident in them still but my mind was wondering for a minute when i started thinking about all teh stuff i need and am basically finding out about on my own by reading, etc... - like they give you a garment teh lipo board etc... so thats important info b/c i was about to buy lipo boards, etc... and other stuff. so thats a lesson -get a full understaning of what you get with your proceedure in terms of supplies etc... aks for aftercare instructions upfront so you know what they recommend. - ask if they have instructions, etc... in writing . at least you can then review papers cause this is too much to keep up with - i'm trying to be somewhat organized about my booty's business :)
Garments I alreday had...
Not sleeping... thinking about my new butt 24/7
first i wanted just a nice sensible booty - now i'm thinking... should i go all out??? - LOL
i have a corporate job, am very professional etc... i just want to get my shape back and get the booty i never had - but initially i just wanted to "fill out" and not get a donkey butt. Like I think butts like Nikki Minage, Tahiry, etc... are WAY too big. I just wanted a sensible nice butt. BUT...........Now that my date is moving closer - i'm thinking should i get all i can get - still not a dokey butt - but just bigger than what i intially had in my head. cause i still want to loose weight - and i'm on a roll w/ my weight loss. I'm so focused right now ya'll !!! but i'm thinking if i get all the butt i can - when i loose a few more pounds it will all work out right... IDK - then again i'm thinking maybe i should still get a conservative but plump booty and if it all goes well and i need more I'll just go for round 2 later. decisions, decisions... i dont wanna look crazy out here u know. ahhhhhhhhhhh stressing
tomorrow i'm going to a medical supply store to see what i can pick up + plus paying for SX
This time next friday I'll be BOOTAYFIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My mom will be with me for the 1st 2 days so he won't act up too much with her there. now i'm thinking will he think she should have told him??? IDK!!!!!!!!!!!! this is crazy.
On the way to DR office to drop off this cashiers check...
Paid that cash today, had another consult w/ my Dr., got aftercare instructions
fyi -all his prices are based on a persons bmi. EX: for a bmi of 30 - his TT's are done in the hospital and would be 8K and change. if an overnight hospital stay is needed it would be an additional $900.
I got this info for a friend who is going on a consult next week. I'm only getting lipo and BBL not TT.
Now i'm truly just counting down....
Keeping a positive state of mind during this time
got my arnica and bromalein today
countdown is super close
feeling like i'm running out of time...
sleeping on stomach
This weather is crazy - it was freezing today trying to not get sick! today driving home i felt like cars were trying to hit me - felt like i just needed to be safe indoors awaiting friday. i'm bugging!!! LOL anxiety forreal
feeling good about Arnica helping pain..
i'm going vegan as of date of my surgery
def cutting out meat - i'll keep fish and gonna try to cut out cheese. Right now i'm eating a lot of eggs - seems low fat - i'm putting garlic, spinich and smoked salmon, etc... into omelette. So delish! need to switch to egg whites though... but my bomb omelettes with an english muffin for now - and im good. I just ordered a diet plan of prepared food (http://www.personaltrainerfood.com/) - it has a lot of chicken i might have to let my boyfriend do that diet cause im sick of being sick fr meat. anyways..... had to get that off my chest. i cut out red meat like 4 years ago cause it totally destroyed me - had me constipated for like 2 weeks straight and nothing worked - i mean nothing. now i gotta cut all meat out altogether!!!!!!!!!!!!!

bf was not excited to see that - and i wanted him to do the diet now - since i dont want to eat meat anymore. he was not excited though - hes not ready to go hard at loosing weight. so i'll see. i spent like $200 on that darn food. sure not gonna watse it.
i tild one of my cousins ... im going to the other side tomorrow. she was what??? i was like the big booty side. i had hercracking up. she wants it gtoo, her and my other cousin. so i've got like 4 people waiting to see how i come out - lol.
im not really believing this is real. just want to get it over and heal. its amazing what money can buy. i just want to be ok all around. prayers. chat later - luv u all
I made it to the other side yall
He did stomach etching, took out 3000cc but only used 1040, 520cc in each butt cheek. He also gave me hips. Im feeling good right now laying still, but moving is a mf'er the stomach pain is real. So..... im 4unning errand wit my mom, laid out in her car back seat. When I get home and get it together ill upload picsm
im feeling ok - as i said in my last posting if i stay still im fine when i move its painful, then the pain switched and the stomach pain got better but my butt pain increased all on its own wether i moved or stayed still. the pain pills i have are tylenol 3 w/ codine. they are just ok... seems i would need something stronger. worst part of whole surgery was getting up off the operating table. during the surgery - i'll compare it to like when you at the dentist and ur nummed - u cant really feel anything then he'll hit a couple of spots where you have to say -wait hold up - i feel that. then doc give you more numbing medicines, etc... it was kinda like that. my inner thighs have swollen - so im not sure its swollen or if the butt fat has traveled to my thighs. i have a call into the dr to discuss that. i hope the fat has not traveled - cause would that mean a revision??? idk
i dont really have an appetite but i had an eglish muffin w/ peanut butter and drinking lots of water- i feel slightly dehydrated ...
my boyfriend is good. i did end up writing him a letter and when i came home. i was like here read this. after he read it he didnt even get the main point of the letter. he was just like ok i'll be more supportative of you. i was like... ok what else did you get from the letter??? i had a line in there about im getting my shape redone... he was like yeah you wanna get ur shape redone..... i was like no - i got it done already. anyways he was not getting the message right off the back he still just thinks i got lipo. he prob can tell something is going on with the butt too but i havent actually said it. i have so much gauze and padding on.... we're weird - i know. anyways about half my fam is now waiting to see my results, seems everyone wants a BBL on the low :)
will upload better pics when i have some.
in my opinion the proceedure was not that tough - though i do think i have a high pain tolenarnce... as far as my resuslts... my dr put in work - but i expected more and am considering a revision. he definetly built a shelf for projection, added in hips and some volume, but i dont have the roundness i wanted. plus he did not use all of my fat - which he said he would b. ut for some reason didnt. im meeting w/ him this week to discuss. i'm not that happy right now..I am however happy with my lipo on stomach. i mean the way i am now is an improvement but for all this trouble and stress on the brain and body I want something very close to what i originally had in mind. and i know i've seen bootys flatter than mine look rounder than this after sx. anyways.. pls tell me what ya'll think. - thanks
there's levels to this booty business ish
now i'm thinkng i gotta refocus my mind. thankfully i dont feel botched by my dr. i just wanted to see roundness instantly. it might still come but i dont think so from what i see right now. so i'm waiting.... from what i hear u have to wait anyways to do a revision -time frames vary by who u talk to... so who knows but i have nothing but waiting time now anyways... duing this wait time instead of being disappointed - i'm going to be thankkful that i made it out alive, thankful that my dr. was skillful enough to tweak and enhance my natural look; even though i expected diff results.
of course people do naturally have round big butts but when we dont and then all of a sudden do - it is going to look somewhat fake. i am cool with that look though but i'm just thinking about it and being real w/ myself. i see now my dr. only knows how to give a natural looking butt and thats what he gave me. so i gotta take that and sit with that while i wait.
there's levels to this booty business. its like getting a new car, vs getting a new car all pimped out - everybody dont know how to pimp it out. but the "pimp my ride look" to some will look gaudy.. its all a matter of taste. - i am now not all of a sudden against the look i wanted - but now that it didnt work like that for me i gotta ponder on the why's and what this is all about.... also to keep my sanity and not go crazy fr big booty madness :). so for now i'm going to keep it moving and stop the obsession... time will tell if i decide to pick this back up.... i'll check in on a few of the girls i chat with to see their progress and i'll post more pics as i truly move into real recovery (like months in), as i think of helpful info for others i'll post. but in my recovery for my bout w/ big booty madness - i need to wein myself from this site - casue it helps feed the beast :) hope yall feel where im coming from.
stay safe sisters
wasit cincher, approaching 2wk mark
overall i love my shape, i have continued to loose weight, after the sx you will not be all hungry, so i was eating like a bird... there is a big noticable difference in my overall weight and of course to my overall shape. i'm just missing the roundness to the butt. but at least i have the flat stomach, the hourglass shape, hips which make for a better shaped butt - just not round. my BF loves my new shape. i have not went shopping yet, but i def need a new wardrobe, not gonna be wearing my old style of boring clothes trying to hide my big stomach... all that is out the window :) i tried on a tight dress, i'd like my stomach to be a little flatter - i'd say i look 2 weeks preggo in a skin tight dress which is not bad when i used to look 5mo preggo in a tight dress or shirt... so its a big difference and i'm rolling with the positive side of things. I'm getting tired of my stage 1 garment cutting into my legs - though i've gotten very used to it.... tonight i tried on my stage 2 corsette - and OMG is this thing tight! There are so many stages to this whole process its a trip! But def doable. i'm supossed to start this garment 2wks after sx - so on Friday, but i'm ready to get outta that thigh cutting stage 1 garment now. so i might start this corsette tomorrow.... wearing it is def is a game changer BIG TIME. it cinches me in like crazy. if my waist conforms to this shape i'll be even 100 more times happier with my hourglass shape. i'm wondering do these things really work like that. it brings out the REAL hourglass in your shape. the one i have has boning in it, not sure if this is the best type to use - but i already had it... it makes everything sit just right like a brick house chick. gonna get a maiden form bra to hold the tata's up in place so everything will looked super stacked and thick.
for those that know my story... RE: my dr. he has said he'll do round 2 at no charge but i ain't messing with him like that. i'm through. if i do a round 2 i'm now considering Salama in FL. was looking at fisher but some of the bloody pics i've seen on line look a lil crazy.... not set on if i'll do a round 2 but just maybe....IDK yet. If so i't will be next year this time. so i'll be enjoying my slim figure and new shape for now...
anyone w/ knowledge on wasit cinchers, please share your experience. i'd like to know if it will really shape me in the long run...
anyways... thats my update for now
weight loss, diet regime
FYI - RE: the diet food i bought (www.personaltrainerfood.com) - its actually very tasty and super easy to prepare - u just microwave everything right in its package - and it really tastes good. It also makes u feel full. i said i was going vegan - which i still plan to do once i'm finished with my overall weight loss and this particular diet.... but i must tell you that this diet food has something in it that makes you go to the bathroom. so constipation is not an issue when eating this food / chicken. always being consitpated was one of my main reasons for wanting to go vegan. so this diet is serving its purpose for now.... def worth trying if ur trying to loose weight. I'll be re-ordering...
Round 2 bbl Salama May 7, 2015
uplodaed a pic of my progress or lack thereof in the butt dept. salamas office said my orig dr put in too little fat - says u need to put in 800-1000 ccs to make a difference in the butt's appreance. i got 520 cc on each side and that 520 was spread on butt cheeks and hips - so who knows how many cc's actually made it to the butt. anyways i'll give it one more go :) since it feels like my first try was basically a wasted pursuit of a butt. so i'm starting over.
my orig dr, did give me a slight hip shape though.... an dhe def made a dent in the hughe stomach i had. so all hope for looking hot this summer is not lost. i have continued w/ my weight loss and am doing good. i'm wearing smalls and mediums now; even a few XTR smalls in some items depening on what it is. so i'm beyond happy with that. i haven't worn a small in anything prob since i was 3yrs old - lol. here i go again... another journey.
he tweaked and enhanced my natural look; though i expected diff results. he did not give me the "wamp" "wamp" effect - though that migth be the fake butt look - that i kinda wanted... my level of satisfaction is mixed. he'll give u a nice natural butt, but not the look that most people on this site are looking for (including me). overall he is a good dr. though - i'm not knocking him. but he's not necessarily an expert in the BIG bootaaaay field. - *This is my 2 cents 4 days post op. as things change my review may change... Almost 3 weeks post: This man should not be doing bbl's. he a good stomach dr., lipo, etc... but NOT bbl
