9 days till I'm a Duran doll!!

After almost 3 years of stalking Real self and...

After almost 3 years of stalking Real self and debating whether or not to do this I've finally made up my mind. I'm finally doing this!! I'm 22 years old, no kids and already kind if have a well proportioned body. (I just HATE my back fat and my little gut)
After doing lots of research I've been bouncing back in between Yily de los Santos and Edgar Contreras. They're both AMAZING at sculpting (I have friends that have gone to both) but Yily's "attitude" reviews make me feel uncertain also the fact that edgar contreras patients don't post a lot of pictures or detailed reviews make me feel a bit lost even though I believe in his results.
I got a quote from both for liposculpture of the stomach, back, flanks, arm lipo and inner thigh lipo. No bbl because I already have a butt.
I am not fat at I just want to be skinny- SKINNY lol. If any if you amazing ladies have gone to Edgar Contreras PLEASE SHARE your experience! :)

I booked my flight for late May and told edgar contreras I'll let him know this week the exact date!!

Bought my flight today!!!

Just bout my flight for May 19th. I'm calling him to schedule the deposit tomorrow. Most likely going under the knife on Tuesday. Beyond excited and scared at the same time.

I have been debating between edgar contreras and yily for a while but after reading the reviews from the little but of girls that actually share their experiences with him my mind is made up. Another plus is that my uncle is a very famous lawyer in the Dominican Republic and he happens to be close friends with dr. Contreras so that gives me the confidence that he'll take special care of me and do an amazing job. LADIES PLEASE SHARE ANY EXPERIENCES AND PICTURES OF HIS WORK!!
Thanks for starting a review on RealSelf.  I hope you post some pre-op/before pics soon!  Keep us posted on everything :)

Pre op pics. Hate that pouch!

Pre op pics. I despise that pouch and my back fat. -___- I'm praying Dr. Contreras does extremely aggressive lipo on my back. To make sure is super flat.

Love how Attentive Dr. Edgar Contreras is :)

I've spoken to him via emails a couple of times. Asking him weight and price questions, the list of medicines and other details. I Absolutely love his fast responses and attention he gives you. Most dominican surgeons barely want to reply or give pricing unless they know you're choosing them for sure, they take weeks to reply if they ever do. Ridiculously unprofessional smh. Feeling confident with my choice.
thanks so much for your review can wait to see your results

Been bouncing in between doctors again.

The farther your surgery date is the more time you have to think and debate doctors. Also you start over thinking things and you find yourself panicking and freaking out one minute then completely confident and ready the next. Duran FINALLY replied to me after a month and have me a quote. Didn't give me a date but told me to just walk in that date and she'll see what she could do. I'm not going to lie her work is AMAZING and there are so much more pictures post op pictures from team Duran. I've also found myself searching for yily patients as well yily was my number one option for months excuse I know one of her patients and she looks unbelievable and have me a great personal review, but after I started reading mixed reviews from her having an 'attitude' I was slowly pushed towards contreras and after I saw his beautiful quote that was the last little kick I needed to be completely secure about dr. C. But now I'm debating between the 3 again. This is so hard! Please if anyone knows any FB groups for contreras patients please help me out! My flight is bought and I secured a date with him.

Forgot to mention.....

Another things that's pushing me towards Contreras is the fact that I've heard from several sources that he is responsible for Yaris Sanchez crazy body, Jessica Mericee, her friend checa nada few other popular bottle waitress girls. Someone please help me find pictures!

A few wish pics

I feel these are completely achievable on my frame.

Have any of you pretty ladies gotten arm lipo?

I would love to know about your experiences! The pain level, discomfort and after how long can you more your arms freely.

53 days left!!!

I'm starting to take my vitamins on April 1st (6 weeks before) and on May 1st doubling up in all vitamins... Slowly crossing things out of my list. Waiting for arnica gel, arnica tablets and bobby pillow to be delivered. I'm buying my fajate and my fajate sleeves in person since there is a store that sells it around where I live. Debating going for a small or a medium probably risking it with a small since I feel is what I'm going to be after surgery.
Question...do you ladies know of anyone who's had a bbl and or Lipo during the summer??? If so, does it take longer to recover and how soon can you go outdoors (to the beach and show your figure) :) Thanks....considering moving mine up to July...not sure yet...thanks!!!

Hey I was wondering the same thing. I've heard you aren't suppose to expose the skin after having lipo for about a month or you'll get dark spots but I'm not 100% sure.

Thank you for sharing...I am definitely looking into Dr. Contreras now after your insightful thoughts...Good luck with your surgery luv and please share!!!! Can't wait to see your gorgeous self!

Booked my mom and little sister flights!

Since we all need intense care for the first 3-5 days I decided not to pay a stranger but instead have my beloved mother take care of me. She refused to let me do otherwise lol. I'm extremely grateful she's so supportive and attentive but I must admit paying for her flights and my 6 yr old sister's flights was a bit painful -_- lol. I know it'll be completely worth it since she'll take better care of me than even I would. So we are leaving together on the same flight and 6 days later she's coming home. While I stay in my grandma's house for 13 more days. THEN my boyfriend is taking a flight and meeting me there 3 days before I return home so that we can fly together and he can assist me in the airport with luggage ect... Definitely NOT paying for his roundtrip though lol. Hope all of you beautiful dolls are doing well, recovering well and remaining positive. Xoxo
So I'm leaving this Sunday and having surgrey the 21st my ain't inlaw said he is a great doctor but to bring your own medication his isn't strong enough for the pain .

Amazing. It's so soon! What kind of pain meds are you taking?

33 days to go!!!!!! o_O

OH MY GOD! Only 33 days to go I'm beyond excited but as the day gets closer this is getting so real and my nerves are kicking in!

I'm in the contreras group on FB and I recently saw some girl completely change her mind about contreras due to bad reviews and deceiving woman that aren't being honest. I'm literally already confirmed, plane tickets bought and deposit sent with home so if any of you ladies can let me know on who's page or what link to find this info in it would be extremely helpful. Please please please! Xoxo
I can't wait 60 more days lol I'm staying at his recovery house do u know where u staying

Need your help ladies!

I have a month left before my surgery can any of you ladies please tell me how long before the big day should I start taking my arnica pills and bromelain???????
I already started taking my vitamins and blood builder this week.

By the way I got my hemoglobin results last week (before I started taking vitamins) and it's a 12.2!! :D
Sorry to inform you but Dr. Contreras is a butcher... at best. Go on Univision's web site. A lady just came forward about her nightmare. She nearly died. Like many others. I don't know how y'all keep finding that creep. But do yourself a favor and REALLY research your PS. Don't choose one because they are a few hundred bucks cheaper than others. Go to www.sodocipre.net to make sure your PS is board certified in the country they practice in. Please share this information.

Feeling anxious and depressed

Due to the recent scandal from Edgar Contreras I'm forced to reconsider my surgeon decision. As far as I've come along preparing everything gathering the money buying flights etc. this is super upsetting and I honestly don't know what to do. In order for me to go to Duran which is my next choice I would need an extra $2,000 which I don't have and don't have enough time to gather. I still been doing research even after I heard the bad news and I spoke to a few girls on Instagram and got nothing but amazing reviews and advice. This is extremely hard and after requesting time off and buying my flight my mom's and sister' s I'm at the point if no return. Ladies any recent contreras reviews other than the ones I'm tired of hearing about?
I've only read bad ones :/. I've heard that there are some doctors there that will let you go in someone's place if they don't show up or have the money.

Good luck with it choice. Go with it head with a little heart thrown in.

Hi Love, i recently just came back from DR and had surgery with him. I had no issues and followed his instructions like any other doctor to the "T" check out my review and pics. If you don't feel comfortable i can also recommend you some other dr's I know of in DR so that you can do consultations. I have many friends who've used other Dr's in the dominican republic. Keep your head up!

15 days left!!!

Time is FLYYYYIIIIIINGGGG!!!!
I'm in shock his fast the time has gone by. I've managed to gather some more money thanks god. And god willing I'll be in my way in 2 weeks. I spoke to Queen Duran and she asked me to simply walk in that she accepts walk ins as long as I'm early. What a blessing!! I have my last physical before I leave on Thursday I've been drinking my vitamins so hoping my Hemo is 13 or higher. My friend just got done my dr. Manuel Diaz(he works at cipla) and may I say he is AMAZING!!
I sent him an email with pics and all my info, he replied with a few medical history questions then finally have me a $3000 quote which is much cheaper than Duran! At this point my plan A is Duran, Plan b is Diaz and plan C is my first option Edgar contreras.


Speaking if Dr. Contreras. He emailed me to confirm again and to reassure me of the entire thing since I guess he remembers that I told him my uncle is a famous lawyer that solved a case he had before... So that was pretty nice of him, I also spoke to 3 of his patients that have me spectacular reviews I found them on ig. But honestly I feel it's a lottery with contreras and I feel is extremely stupid to risk the money, pain and health sacrifice for a mediocre job.
So god willing I'll be a Duran doll in no time.


LADIES PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!
Any tips on what to do the last 2 weeks pre op?!?! Any tips during surgery?!?! And also the aftercare?!?! I have 99% of my supplies (just missing pain meds which will be Percocet) and I really need any tips specially being at cipla!

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!! :)
My recommendations: Have somebody to drive u and b with u for at least 24 hours. U will b sleepy and need someone to help u with your meds. Have something to protect car seats, furniture and bedding. I have seen everything from garbage bags to bed protectors. Have pineapple and others fresh fruits to make smoothies since they are good for u and oh so good. That first shower I got into the bathtub and laid down and slowly undid and removed CG and had no problem with lightheadedness. Do not overdo and PLEASE do not lift more than it doctor tells u to. Wear that uncomfortable CG for 24/7 for the first three months. Start massages as quickly as it body and doctor recommends. I had lymphatic massages and many ppl swear by them but I found that the hand held vibrating electric massager did more for me. Loose clothes that do not have tight bands. Good luck with it surgery and keep us posted.

Hey! I ended up going with Contreras. BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE! Give him and his staff a A+++ posting a review after I get home but so far I'm 8 days post op and I'm having a great experience. Waaaaay better than I expected.

CONTRERAS MASTERPIECE.

8 days post op. Extremely swollen still but excited to see how much better this gets. I got lipo front and back and arms, no bbl. I'll post a detailed review after I get home but I must say one thing choosing Edgar contreras was the best decision of my life ladies! This is a very prestigious, glamorous clean and organized to the T facility. Do not believe the rumors. This man and clinic blew my mind even with my American standards. Getting my 6th massage today and I'm taking them like a champ lol. Hope you girls are doing great! :)
Jessica is Cabral's patient and Checa is contreras's patient.
