Im been reading a lot here and i see people who had great results but other not that great so thats make feel nervous Im been trying to find the "best" surgeon thats why i read a lot reviews I made an appoiment with doctor michael schulman at ny, he seen to have a lot reviews and all of them are good so I believe i will pick him crossing my fingers Im picking the right one.... i have an appoiment with him so sad I have to wait so long to see him but well that make me think he is pretty busy cause he is good..

thx for checking on my review can I ask you who is gonna be your surgeon and why the sorry? :)
Good luck sweetie. Dr Schulman is going to hook you up! I love his work. He has a lot of educational Videos in which he gets in depth regarding his techniques. Check out bootie4real I think that's how she spell it. Very caring and informative patient of his with amazing results and very wise of the process. Feel free to pm her as well. I'm not going with Schulman, but she has been a dear to me regardless.

I went to my first consultation

I went to my first consultation yesterday with schulman it was ok, he looks very nice and young and he explain me everything I asked but after I left I realise that I forgto some questions so will recommend you write everything so you don't forget it.
his office doesn't look to fancy like I imagined but it looks ok kinda small, he told me he does the procedure two blocks away from there in his own office he doesn't use a Hospital to do it... secretaries and all the staff very nice.. the lady who came to give the total price said it was gonna be 13,000 for the bbl and they just have time on june nothing earlier wich it make feel sad cause I would like to get it done sooner but Im still gonna go to another surgeon Dr SANJAY LALLA here in nj I will keep posting ;)

How tall are you Hun ? What is your weight ! Did he tell you you need to put weigh on
  • Reply
hi... no he didn't tell me that I actually asked him but he said I was ok Im 135 pounds and Im around 5.5 ft. I guess its because I told him I just want a little be more I don't want to look like to big. he said he will have enough fat to give the look that i want and I really hope so.... Im not doing anything to gain weight Im just eating normal .....
hi girls I have a question I would to get my surgery sooner so Im gonna tell Rachel that if somebody cancel a date let me know.. but due to my job if I change the date I believe i will just have one week to rest do you think thats enough time...?

I finally drank half a bottle of magnesium citrate ~ that got things working again. The shock of surgery sometimes makes everything go on vacation and completely stop for awhile.... Plus the painkillers are so constipating... This is so NOT a ladylike recovery haha

Hola ????

Hola a todas...! Friday I went to my first post appt. all went well ..!
I saw dr schulam, btw he is cute to me :) .!
Well I saw him and he said that I was healing very good and let me tell you that I feel so much better I feel like its me again a little be mmm slow when I walk but not painfull anymore and I really like what I see I really hope my butt doesn't get much smaller than what it is now but I know it will go down because of the swelling. I drive for first time today and it was really uncomfortable I guess I have to get used to drive like that. I put a boppy pillow on my back and a yoga mat under my legs.! My butt never touched the sit but It was really hard to keep it on 'air'
Here are some pictures before and now

5 Comments

Hope all is well! I am following your recovery praying that you will heal up. I am 5'6" and also 137 pounds and I want the same results as you. I don't want a donkey booty but I want a full bubble butt, not a shelf booty. I am going for the more natural look. Glad to see that it is possible to get a nice butt with little fat. Did you have to gain anything for the surgery? I am thinking about gaining a few pounds just in case. How much cc's did you get in your butt and hips? Much love!
  • Reply
Hi thx xoxo..! I didn't have to gain anything he told me I didn't needed to.! since I wasn't looking for a big big booty..! So crazy but I didn't asked him how many ccs I got I always forget what I want to ask when I see him..! But I will e-mail rachel to ask
okay thanks!

Omg this is just driving me crazy

This is just driving me crazy I e-mail dr schulman to ask how many cc I got and they reply that he removed 3900 cc from all areas and transferred 1600 cc into the butt and hips.
Is that all I got.!? Omg I know I know, I told him that i didn't want a huge booty but is this fat enoght to give the results than I was looking for..!? I don't know..! But I feel is not enough specially after reading a few ladies that said they lost volume and projection after a few months..! I feel like I want to cry right now..! Im actually crying :(
I really like how my body looks right now but it's only been two weeks My butt still is swollen and the % of fat that my body will absorb is still there.!! So how is it gonna look like when that happends..!
Im sorry I just can't help my self I can't stop thinking about it..! I wish I could go bakc in time and tell him to transfer more ..! I know is to soon to tell my finals results..!
Maybe I just have to much free time to drive my self crazy about it..! I don't know why I asked i was ok with out knowing how much he transfer now that I know I just feel sad cause I wish It would be more..! I'm just hope my finals results look as great as now

Hi, I was going through the same thing. But we have to remember Hun, we look better than we did before. I think you look great. It'll get better. I think we all go through these emotions. I feel different everyday that passes (I'm almost 5 weeks in) some days are great, some days I'm sad but it's a part of the process. I hope you feel better. Xoxo me mandas un mensaje si quieres hablar mas...

I know i read your review and I know exactly how you feel...! Muchas Gracias mami que bien saber que hay alguien mas que habla espaƱol por aqui..!
Was it 1600 total or 1600 per side? Either way you look absolutely lovely~ I'll take your figure any day!! Gorgeous cola bottle shape! Dr Schulman does really beautiful and consistent work~ once you get past your initial healing phase you're going to be very happy~ this is such a hard time!! Total emotional roller coaster! I keep imagining seeing flat spots and my hubbie keeps assuring me they are in my head... Up & down... Hang in there love!! xo

squeem question

hello my beautiful ladies today I tried a squeem on top of my garment I wore it for like 2 hours when i took a nap but when I woke up my abdomen and back was painful, my back was felling like a rock, it was hard to move so I took it off and it was such a relief.. how did you girls managed that?
maybe It wasn't a good squeem, I got size small and I wearing a medium garment
any advice its welcome
excuse me for my grammar i believe its the worst here but English and I are not good friends lol......! but is getting better
thx xoxo to everybody send so many kisses >>>>
btw I become such addicted to this website Rs i feel like I check it everyday to see any update from one of my beautiful ladies

:) I was just wondering today if it was possible to wear my squeam over my garment... Does yours have zipper/hooks or is it pull on?
  • Reply
It has hooks..! I'm gonna buy another one cause that one is def not working for me or maybe my body still sensitive
In read on ur review you got a few..! Please let me know if one then work for you..! :)

squeem update

hello.. Im telling you I got so addictive with Rs. but I just want to give you an advice about the squeem as you know I wore for 2 hours yesterday and after that I asked here about that.. I got a message today from a sissy telling me to be careful about it and shes is totally right; Dr Schulman told her to be careful wearing a squeem so early in recovery because it could leave permanent indentations and marks from the boning (the hard part in the squeem that feels like a rod). and after that I checked my self I have those marks on my body you can really see the lines from the squeem on my body ( picture below not a good quality picture don't really show the truth ) and I wore yesterday and still there.. I called Amanda since Rachel is away and she said that marks will go away but I should be just wearing my stage garment 1
how did you girls wore a squeem on top of garment with out this problem?
So who any is wondering about wearing a squeem please be careful and ask Dr first

Curious--what made you add the squeem over the garment hun?
  • Reply
I don't know i believe i read a review of somebody wearing a squeem on top of garmet to make more pressure and make waist even tinier
Is that actually truth.? Will the squeem help to keep waist smaller.?

happy birthday to me

Wish me happy birthday please..! Today its my birthday I'm turning 20+++! I actually stop counting
I'm posting some pictures today I'm so close to my 3 week ( Tuesday ) and i want to share my curves
Booty def got smaller swelling got down it looks ok..! please booty don't get smaller than this I paid so much for you I like you the way you look now..!

I feel I didn't write about my experience the day of surgery but it was similar to all of you..! Anesthesia guy I like him very much he was so funny and kind with me "listen to the music" and that was the last thing I heard.! nurses are so nice I can't remember their names sorry, one of then speak Spanish and that was nice I love her so much she was so so so nice to me..!! Dr schulman team the best #bootybyschulman

Like everybody said first 4 days are the WORST I said that I was never ever ever gonna do this again but now that I feel better I wouldn't mind to do it again..! I ate a lot of papaya and jelly my first few days I found that good..!

Things that I found really helpful make sure to have wet wipes that I used it a lot
i got suppositories there was a day that I was having such a hard time with the poo i couldn't stand it anymore,. so that for me was such a lifesaver .! Uffff such a relief
I didn't used the toilet first few days I used a garbage can
I got some games on my phone I had a lot of free time and that kept me busy well i don't have children
I know there is no way to prepare to this but we try our best there were days that everything make me laugh day of shower It was so crazy i was laughing for no reason just to see peoples face make laugh..! And had a few days that I just wanted it to cry..! Its just like a roller coaster of emotions there is not really way to explain it until you go through .!

I Hope this help to somebody specially for those that are looking similar results as me.. Im still struggling with the size of my butt.. my best wishes to all bbl sisters..!

I'm sorry for lying ( excuse for work )

I went to one of my jobs yesterday
for the first time, and I felt kinda bad cause my boss was so worry about me ..! I had it to lied to him obviously I was not gonna tell him I was getting a bbl
So I told him I felt from stairs while I was vacuuming and my foot and back got hurt ..! I told him I was in a lot of pain and doctor said that I could not walk for around 2 or 3 weeks..! Luckuly he believed me..! So yesterday when I saw him it was kinda funny ( poor guy Im such liar but it was for a good reason)
I also told him I was wearing something to keep my back tight wich its obviously the garment
( just in case he notice it )

I saw you are trying to gain weight .? Did the dr suggest that..!?

Is this normal..!?

Is this lumpiness normal.!? I notice this lump on my lower abdomen few days a go, but I noticed that every day gets bigger., today is much bigger than usual.!
I put the ab board to make pressure .! But is not really helping

Hun ... It is a fluid build up ! Watch what you eat , no sodium , carbs , suggar ! Wear your waist clincher , and massage yourself or get a massages every week ! Recovery is long and hard ! I am also 10 days post op. And trying to do same ..

Please beware

Please beware
I was watching the news
How sad a lady pass away cause she got a cosmetic procedure
( liposuction )
Please ladies do you homework and find a good plastic surgeon I know the prices out of the country are much cheaper but our live does not have a price
I feel so sad for that family, his husband was cryin and said that she was beautiful already but she wanted it to look better and thats why he supported her, but he never ever ever thought this was gonna happend
That happend in dominican republic but the she lived in bronx
the Dr name is CABRAL if anyone is considering this doctor please do not go, 4 people died under surgery on his hands
I can not believe he keeps performing procedures .!
Thats so scary.!
I can not thank God enough first, and Dr schulman
Cause that does not only happen out of usa it happens here too.! :(
RIP

This is very sad and scary, I have to admit it has crossed my mind once traveling out if the country for a cheaper price! But quickly threw that idea away, I rather pay a lil more and be more safe. My prayers go out to her family.

Omg Im glad helped you.! Please be very careful with the surgeon you pick and going out of the country ( personal opinion ) I wouldn't even think about it unfortunately laws in our countries are so different than here.! People don't respect anything and anybody with money can buy a judge.! Thats why this " doctors " keep performing procedures no matter what

6 weeks update

hello to all my beautiful ladies hope everybody is doing good.. I haven't update in a while cause there wasn't to much to said..woaaaaa im 6 weeks times flies
how am I doing??
I'm been doing good physically no problem at all.. no pain nothing Im back to my normal life
but the bootyanxiety is Realllllll omg never expect this feeling before about anything in my life... I think on my butt every single minute lol
its like 24/7 .. does this happen to somebody else?
I feel a little sad about all this procedure cause my expectations were higher
( and I was not looking to look like nicky minaj cause I'm skinny person that would look ridiculous on me I just wanted to have a nice round butt with nice hips )
booty def got smaller, hips are almost gone :(
and I feel lovely handles are coming back ooooo goshhhh no please
lower abd is still the same lumpy and my belly bottom too it looks a little weird I hoping everything is swollen and it will look flat after a few more weeks. I'm attaching some pictures so you can see...
it sounds like I don't have anything good to said lol but Im just being honest and this is the way I feel, I'm sorry if it bothers someone...
sometimes I believe I wasn't really a good candidate for this procedure maybe to thin, 130lb wasn't enough to deliver a good result
but believe me if I can do it over I will, I know it sound crazy and probably I'm out of control lol but we only live once.

I'm gonna see Dr schulman on Friday Oooooo men I have a crush with him lol
I think on him everyday but because of my butt lol

Im trying to stay positive and Im sure Dr sculman will give me a better idea of whats gonna happen in a few weeks..

send you so much bootylove specially those who are first stage healing, hang in there, it will be better after first week xoxo

Gordiss are you using foam ,pads ,ab board something for extra compression and getting your massages these things are a major part of the recovery they help to shape and dictate your results...6wks is still early in the process I read that the recovery process healing in a whole can take up to a yr.. Maybe it's the garment order a corsets do whatever it takes you have to do your part go the extra mile.. Take care of yourself and don't get the post sx blues..
  • Reply
Hi nikkibunz.! Yes im being using garment and a squeem on top of that.! I also use my ab board on my lower abd and add some foams to the side to compress more.! Im following all Dr instructions post op.!

mmmmmmmmmmmmm

hi girls, so i had my consultation on friday.. it went well Dr schulman is a very nice doctor
he took my after pictures I haven't receive those yet I will post it when I get it
I explained that I was not really happy about it and he said that everything is my mind he showed me my b/a pictures and there is a difference..
he also said that he transferred on me all the good fat that I had, so sad I had so little
he put 750ccs on right and 850ccs on left
he also said that lumpiness on my lower abs is swollen and a lit be of loose skin, and it will get better with time...
as you know I being sad about this procedure, i had so many bad days crying, regretting everything, hating on me and Dr schulman ( sorry doctor )
so seem him made feel better he said I look great and that I should be enjoying the way I look, that so many women will love to look like me, and I could be the wish picture of so many.... mmmmmm Doctor I'm not sure about that.. but it was nice he said that
I also asked if a revision was in my future if I decide to. he said probably not, he took pretty much all the fat out. and if so we will have to discuss that in a year not sooner than that :(
omg girls Im so so bad remembering questions I CAN NOT believe I forgot to ask about the massages. but I will probably e-mail him to ask.

GOING BACK TO THE GYM
I went to the gym yesterday for first time,
treadmill for about 10 min to warm up my body ( i don't do to much cardio on my routine i rather to lift to build muscle ) so then I moved to squats I know sounds crazy after a bbl but I want butt to look better, 4 sets of 10 rep with 10lb ( i used to do more weight than that before sx but I want to star little by little ) and that was it for me.. I couldn't do anymore, my butt was on fire, I will add more exercises as the time goes now I can not do any sitting exercise.
i got so swollen after exercise Dr advised me about that, so I went home and wrap my self into garments , foams, ab board everything lol , day after I was in so much pain oooo gosh my legs and butt hurt so bad after those squats but its normal cause I haven't exercise in a long time...
send you booty love to all...

Hi! Just an update Im 3 months post.! And I was seeing this coming.! Not happy about this procedure it was a waste of money in my case
My butt shrink so so much I have no hips they are same as before
Everyday my old undeware fits more like before I didn't have to get new cause all of them fit on me perfect like if nothing happend.! :(
I was refusing to put on my old jeans cause I was afraid they were gonna fit on me just like before but I did not have other option yesterday and Yes they fit perfect too.! No difference at all.!!!
Remenber the lump on my belly its just the same not getting better with time like Dr said.! And Im been working out like crazy trying to get rid of this muffin
The fat didn't hold and Im 3 months so no hopes after 6 months I will def be more disappointed.!
Not posting pictures cause just the idea of taking one and see this mess make feel so sad
Thanks God I stop taking pictures like before!!!, And I try not to look in the mirror as much as possible.
Good luck to everyone.! :-)

So sorry you're not happy with your results. After reading this I feel like telling Schulman to only inject the little amount of fat he said he could get out of me into my hips. Do you like the way your butt is shaped now at least? :(
