I have no butt at all! I have been wanting a BBL...
I have no butt at all! I have been wanting a BBL for some time now. I recently underwent Gastric Sleeve Surgery and have lost 60 pounds I am 32 lbs away from my goal weight. I had a tummy tuck in 2010, and I will need another and a few more procedures after I reach my ideal weight. I am looking for a doctor in Florida who can give me the nice backside that I have always wanted. I do not want a Nikki or Kim backside but I do want it to look like I have a nice one. I also want aggressive lipo and a small waist :o)
I'm changing to Dr. Fisher I believe....
Still in the early stages I was approved for a loan and my husband is supportive. I thought why go to the Atl if I live in Florida I know it's cheaper here and I surely can locate a doc here. I completed a request for info from this site and the coordinator contacted me unmediately for Dr. Fisher. I will submit photos tomorrow and see what they say. I know I will need another tummy tuck at some point but for now I just want to focus on my BBL.
Received a quote from Dr. Fisher
Dr. Fisher has availability in April and I think I am on my way to the BBL. After sending him my photos he stated that I would also need a Mommy Makeover after the BBL and I would only need to lose 10lbs between now and the day of my surgery. I should be able to make that happen as I still have about 30lbs until goal weight. I am getting excited about the possibility of having a butt! Here are some pre-op photos.
Secured my BBL date! 4/27
I just paid the deposit $2600. Not bad at all. I am very much looking forward to it. Now I have to pray that the date is not moved in any way. Unless they can book me earlier!
IM LOOKING FOR A HOTEL NEARBY SURGERY SCHEDULED FOR 4/27

AS EXPECTED DR. FISHER IS ON "VACATION" THE DAY OF MY SCHEDULED SURGERY
I received a call from the office today and they told me that Dr. Fisher just returned from vacation and he is going again on my surgery date of 4/27. Needless to say, I threw a mild sh*t fit and told them that it was extremely unprofessional and not the proper way to run a business. They said that when I originally booked my surgery back in February he didn't know about his vacation. DUH. She gave me a choice of having it on 4/17 or 5/12. I, of course chose the earlier date. Luckily I am local in Orlando, not currently working and my hubby is taking care of me so I can easily change my schedule around to accommodate the new date. Just an FYI for you out of state girls please double and triple check your surgery dates BEFORE finalizing travel.
CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND A LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAUSE IN ORLANDO?
I need to schedule my massages for when I return from Miami on 4/18 and for that following week.
MORE SHADY VANITY PRACTICES
So after rescheduling my surgery for 10 days earlier and inconveniencing me in the process they offered me a "free" faja, boards and foams....for my troubles. But all in the same breath they stated that they would need my balance of 1/2 $2600 paid by this Friday. I was ok with that because I need to pay it anyway. My issue is that they stated their PayPal payment service is "down" and instead gave me their account # and name of Account. I replied to them and told them I could not pay that way and I needed the PayPal option. I am not going to play these money games. At least PayPal offers some type of assurance that I may be able to get my money back at some point from these shady people. Ughh this is so frustrating. I also would be willing to pay more for this surgery and avoid all this hassle.
SUPPLIES THAT VANITY USES
Hello all my surgery is in 2 weeks 4/17 I have the first faja, foams and boards already set from vanity for "free" but I need to purchase more. Can someone tell me the supplies they use so I can purchase on Amazon?
A few wish pics
I have never wanted to go very big aka a Nikki Minaj or a Kim Kardashian but as the days go by i think I need it to be in the larger side in case I lose more weight or lose volume. I have a large frame. I'm 5'7 195 and have nice strong legs that can carry the booty. Here are some wish pics
Vanity Has Been Better...
For the past week Vanity has been better....After the change of surgery date fiasco and the final balance payment conversation we have been communicating a lot better.
The communication via their patient portal is very useful and everyone responds pretty quickly to any and all of my questions. I hope that this is a sign that things from this point will go smoothly.
I have locked down a hotel in Miami, my surgery is on Friday and I will stay until Saturday then make the 3 hour drive back to Orlando after the 1st post op appointment. Now I need to start purchasing some supplies surgery is on 4/17. I'm getting excited.
Labs came back good except....
a false positive reading in the pregnancy portion...I had a hysterectomy in 2003 so I know I'm not pregnant! Gladys will be speaking to dr. Fisher about it and relaying my info . Hopefully they won't make me redo the tests...
Upcoming Surgery 4/17 Dr. Fisher....Is anyone else scheduled for that date?
Just wanted to see if anyone else has their surgery on 4/17? Please say a prayer for me!
Final wish pics for Dr. Fisher....
I hope these help him to understand what I want...
LEAVING FOR THE MIA TOMORROW AM! SURGERY IS FRIDAY 4/17 DR. FISHER PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR ME
Hello all I purchased all my supplies yesterday and I am getting ready to leave for MIA tomorrow. My husband is taking me and we will be staying in a hotel from Thu-Sat. Then after we will make the drive back to Central Fl. Please say a prayer for me. I have been a little nervous and feel guilty leaving my 2 kiddos for a few days. I hope to return back home happy and healthy.
I'm here at Vanity! Surgery tomorrow 4/17
So far so good! Everyone is really nice I've done my repeat blood work and completed all my paperwork. I will pay my balance tomorrow via credit card. I am waiting to meet with fisher today. He is in surgery now so I told them I will wait! They are going to let me know when he is available. They know I wanna meet him before tomorrow. I'm feeling confident and I'm ready.
Met with Dr. Fisher for my pre-op appointment *LOVED HIM*
First off Dr. Fisher was an absolute doll. He was smart, witty and funny. He looked over my body and I believe, was very honest about what my outcome would be based on my anatomy. Fisher was also realistic and confident that I would be happy with my overall appearance after surgery. He said that I carry my weight well that my stomach is pretty flat but that I have a very straight frame and not too much volume in my butt (hence the reason why I am there..lol) I told him I didn't want a "donkey booty" he said I would not be able to get one even if I wanted it because I don't have much now. I did tell him however, that I want it to be on the bigger side and I wanted curves, smaller waist and hips. He said he would definitely be able to give me a nice shape and that I have a nice frame that could carry the curves. I went through each photo that I printed from my Pinterest "butt" page and said he liked that the photos were pretty consistent with the overall look that I wanted to achieve he asked me to bring the pics with me in the AM again. Once again, he took his time and was thorough. He answered all my 20 questions...and I left him feeling confident and secure in my procedure tomorrow*****5 star rating thus far.
Officially **Fisherfied** today and loving myself
17 Apr 2015
Day of treatment
First off I can't believe I had my surgery this afternoon and I'm writing an update already. I've walked about 6 times I'm feeling great! I guess I have a high pain tolerance coupled with a Percocet and I'm a happy girl. Im going to write a detailed review about Vanity, dr fisher and process in the days to come. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support! I get my first massage tomorrow back home!!
One Day Post Op
Please excuse the bloody faja these pics are from the same day of surgery.
Day 1 post op

Lymphatic Drainage Massages Orlando
quick update**I had my first real lymphatic massage yesterday and I have to tell you it was truly wonderful. My therapist was specialist is Iliana Velez and she has been doing the lymphatic drainage for more than 30 years. She is originally from Colombia and her techniques are a combination of her studies and experience there and here. She is also a member of the American massage therapy associations for believe me it showed! The day before I had was was supposed to be a lymphatic massage from a mobile therapist and it was not she was super rough and didn't do any of what Iliana did for me. I purchased a package of 6 for $75 each with ultrasound. I'm excite to go back today. Here is her info
My faja is feeling big! What to buy next?
Im 4 days post op today and I already wanna switch fajas...I need An open bust size XXL or XXL tithe one dr fisher put on me was DIANE XXXXL he specifically chose those one for me. Not sure if I should get one size down or two?? Suggestions anyone? My one week follow up is this Friday I guess I can wait an purchase one at the faja store near vanity? I don't wanna spend over $100 though
Going to Vanity for drain removal 6 DAYS POST OP
today is 6 days post op. I remove my drain tomorrow and I can't wait! I hate this thing. It hardly accumulating anything since abt 2 days ago. I believe I'm ready for stage 2 faja I will confirm this tomorrow at vanity then purchase my second garment in that same plaza where there's a faja store. At least I'll get what i want/ need and not order blindly online. I did light housework today, and cooking as well. My masseuse went away on vacation so I have 3 appts left which will resume next wed. I ordered 2 more sheets of foam off of Amazon ugh but it was pricey I feel like I need them to go around my back more. I also am going to purchase the triangle board for my lower back at the faja shop. This piece is a must for support and to keep that Lower back looking pretty and flat and clean. So far so good i will update more tomorrow!!
8 days post op feeling pretty good
hello all I'm 8 days post op and feeling just fine. I'm back to doing all the cooking and normal housework. I took a long walk yesterday and barely took any rest throughout the day. I'm usually standing and busy. Sleeping has been sucky though I am no longer on the pain meds as of a few days ago. I only sleep 5 hours max per night and end up waking up from violent nightmares. I sleep with the faja from dr fishers office and I wake up stiff as hell in the morning. I'm looking forward till when I don't have to wear my foams any longer even though they are comfy under my garment I don't feel like I have enough of them to cover all my areas.
Ugh terrible itching on my back
has anyone experienced this? Geez I had an itch attack had to spray anti itch spray all over my back and took a Benadryl as well ugh
11 Days Post Op
still feeling very good. I'm still pretty happy with my results I think I'm healing well. I'm very happy with the size although my left cheek has a slight dent right below my flanks that I do hope fills in once I reach the fluffing stage. I tried on some jeans today and they looked a lot better than before. I hope I don't lose too much more volume because I don't want it to be smaller. I must remember that I came from ZERO Booty So truly anything is an improvement!
