Upcoming Work: Lipo360 and Slight BBL

Cliff-Notes: I had lipo in 2009 with a doctor in Virginia. Thankfully lipo has come a long way! I'm going to Dr. Balgobin (Minneapolis) in May. Goals are to finally have a shape - i'm a square, no hips. The slight BBL is to achieve the right profile. I'm nervous about the "new" things involved with lipo these days; the lymphatic massage for one. I'm thankful that Dr. B doesn't use drainage...

Lipo 360 W/ BBL - Dr. Balgobin Aka Dr. BBL

Hello Ladies, I’ve stalked this site for over a year and have finally decided to have the BBL procedure. I’ve researched the doctors in Jacksonville, FL where I live and also in Miami. They all have some great reviews but I couldn’t find a doctor as consistent with their work as, Dr. Christopher Balgobin of Arijai Aesthetic aka Dr. BBL. His attention to detail and organic talent is what ...

28 Years Old.. Much Needed BBL - Minneapolis, MN

My surgery was scheduled for March 21, 2017. Dr. Balgobin called me today & told me that my hemoglobin was too low.. Liposuction patients need a minimum hemo level of 12 & mine was a 10.1 All of my other test were good. I'm so disappointed. He. Also told me that he doesn't want to reschedule me until my levels are normal. Luckily there is no fee to reschedule when due to a medical...

35 No Kids. Previous Lipo - Minnesota, MN

Dr. Balgobin really made my confidence come back full force. I don't feel the depression I did before. My everything was so torn and I had to walk around in a skin I hated. I do remember thinking he realizes how much deeper than the surface this is for some of us. I feel so complete as a woman and I'm not even fully healed yet. People can be so mean...I've been laughed at wearing certain...

Young Nurse Hoping Dr Balgobin Will Transform Me

I originally had my BBL scheduled with Dr Miami but after reading his more recent reviews and him not sharing as much work anymore, I decided to switch surgeons. My question is has anyone had their BBL done with Dr. Balgobin and if so, how did you like your results? Also, would you recommend staying at a recovery house or having family come and just staying at a hotel? This is my first...

That process wasn't long at all, I actually went through my bank to get my money back. My coordinator told me...

Two Years Later and New Doc in Sight - Burnsville, MN

Two years ago I started researching lipo. I'm not a huge fan of the big booty look but do think I could use some help in getting a rounder rear. After extensive research (includes visiting Dr. Salama in Miami and Dr. Balgobin in Minnesota; following physicians and "dolls" on social media; talking to friends who have gone through BBLs), I think I'm going with Dr. Balgobin ("Drbbl" on Instagram)...
