today marks my 7th week of surgery with dr. salama. he is the :"best". you have to have faith and lots and lots of patience to see the results with time. i walked out of that operating room looking like aunt jemima but within 5 days swelling had gone done significantly. by the 5th week, you wonder when are you going to feel better....don't despair, you will feel glad and excited that you made the choice to get the surgery and even happier that you chose dr. salama. i just tried on my first bikini since i was 25 yrs old and i look hot!! my waist has never been smaller. i am now 43 yrs old and i was a size 8 to 10 at 175 lbs before surgery and i am now a size 4 with a booty and dropped to 160 lbs. and most importantly....i have a booty.
