For as long as I can remember, I have always...

For as long as I can remember, I have always looked out for others. Now it's time for me to think of myself. I've got to get this body in order! Initially, I was going to get the gastric sleeve, but I've since lost 24 pounds and I think I can do this myself. I'm hoping that you guys can help support and guide me and I the same. Life is too not put yourself first. I'm consider smart lipo among other things so let's GET IT!

Take me to the Flatside. ....

Ok ladies, for as long as I can remember, I've always help to care for others, family, friends, and etc. As women we are raised that way. Well this is the year that I'm going to be selfish. This is the year I'm going to fall back in love with myself. I've scheduled my consult for tomorrow with Dr. Cochran. I've stalked this side for over a year now, and I'm tired of dreaming, time to make this dream a reality. I'm a mother, I'm a sister, I'm a Nurse, I'm a daughter, and now I want to be a Snatched Cochran Doll.

Consult with Dr. Cochran

Ok.....he's adorably handsome, professional, and thorough. I went in....late due to a wreck that blocked traffic, and everyone was still kind and sweet. I filled out paperwork, and went to the back for vital signs and consult. Now ladies, after stalking the site for so long, I felt like I was meeting a celebrity. ...lol. Dr. Cochran came in and gave me a hug. So sweet and very inviting. I was quoted for extended tummy tuck, with lipo to abdomen, flanks, thighs ( inner, and posterior), and knee area. I paid my deposit and scheduled myself for the 30th of June initially, but I'm having to change my day to hopefully July 13th. Anyone else going around this time? I met a funny, and sweet patient of his there. She gave me alot of advice. Here goes ladies.....take me to the flat side.

To DR or not to DR that is the question

Ok RS sisters, I know i picked a date for surgery and paid my deposit for Cochran, however, I'm now considering going to the DR. I've reached out to several PS, and I'm waiting to hear back from them with a quote. So far I have a quote from Almonte. It includes surgery , medications, pre and post op travel.as well.as travel to and from airport and RH. It includes 10 days at RH with nursing care 24 hr. It includes TT, BBL.with liposculpture, and lipo of full.back as well as flanks and abdomen. The quote is 5400. Let me know what you guys think. I'll keep you posted as other quotes come in. There's also a 500 nonrefundable US deposit.

If you need any document or letter after surgery, please request it at least 3 days before your returning flight, otherwise we won’t provide it.


The day of your surgery

You have to fast the day of surgery so don't eat or drink anything. You have to be in the clinic at 6:30 am, you’ll have the test done, the consultation with me and then the surgery. One of my assistant will be with me to translate and for a better communication.


Duration of your surgery

It takes about 1 hour to clean you disinfect your body, give you anesthesia, put catheterization and IV, I’m not present in that moment, because I have my assistants to do that with my anesthesiologist that is present all the time, then I come into the room and operate, it takes about 2-3 hours. When I finish my work, I go out of the operating, my assistants clean you again and prepare you to go to the recuperation room, where spend about 1 hour and a half or 2 hours under observation, and then you’re taken to the room assigned by the clinic. In total, it would take about 5 hours for the whole process since you go into the operating room and until you go out.


Payment Forms

The balance of your surgery must be paid prior to your surgery. You can pay the morning of your surgery at the clinic. I only accept cash. You may pay in US dollars. I don’t accept financing, credit card, care credit, money orders, bank check or personal checks.



About the procedures (Interesting facts)


The day of surgery

The night before the surgery don't eat or drink anything after 10 pm. You have to be in the clinic at 7 am, you’ll have the test done, the consultation with me and then the surgery. My assistant will be with me to translate and for a better communication.


After surgery

I will give you instructions and recommendations for your recovery. You will stay 1 night in the clinic. You have to wear your garment for 3 months minimum, and can’t spend more than 45 minutes a day without it during these months.



We usually use continuous epidural block and general anesthesia. Although some patients prefer general anesthesia only, it is at the discretion of the anesthesiologist. You will be asleep during the surgery. He is a trusted and licensed professional and knows what anesthesia is the best for this type of surgery.


Breast Augmentation

The implants are placed under the muscle. The implants are silicone by SILIMED. The stitches are absorbable; they do not need to be removed. I do not transfer fat to breast because of the issue of breast cancer.


Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck scar/incision is 4cm from the pubic line. I use stitches that dissolve, so they do not have to be removed (only the stitch that goes right in the middle of the scar has to be removed after 21 days post-op). I cannot tell you how many inches your waist will be reduced as that is dependent on your diastasis and the separation of your muscles. This will be determined during surgery. You will have a drain after surgery that will collect excess fluid. This drain will be removed in 7-14 days, depending on your recovery. Please note it is recommended you wait at least 1 year to get pregnant after having this procedure.


BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift)

This procedure entails grafting fat from other areas of your body and injecting it into your buttocks. I cannot determine how much fat I can graft before surgery. The amount of fat injected in the buttocks will depend on how much fat your buttocks can accept and your hip size. The fat will be injected in all directions as long as it does not compress the sciatic nerve. Too much fat injected in the buttocks can cause necrosis or form abscesses. This mainly occurs when the patient does not have proper post-op care. After having a BBL you CAN sit on your butt and sleep on your back.


Important notice about BBLs: Most of the butts in the “wish pics” that some of my patients send me are made of PMMA. I do not use PMMA. I solely do fat grafting and inject the fat in the buttock. I will always try to give my patients their desired results, but we have to be aware that there are limits when injecting fat.


Kindly note the airport you will be flying into is Las Americas in Santo Domingo – Code SDQ.

DR here I come in 2 weeks....

Okay ladies so I only have 2 weeks left to go. I have been doing all sorts of things to prepare myself. I'm eating healthier walking an hour daily and taking my vitamins. Hopefully I will get the passport on Monday. I'm buying the tourist card to save some time. I'm staying at tropical RH. Wishing all of us the best! !


Ok dolls, time is creeping up on me. I'm trying to get my iron where it needs to be. I've gone from 210 to 199. I'm proud of myself for that. All of my things I've ordered are coming in now. I can feel my heart beating I'm so anxious. Anyway wanted to recap, and say I'm going with Yily 7/12 surgery date. I'll be at Tropical RH though 7/22. I'm getting TT, BBL, LIPO, and possibly breast lift with implants. God is with me and I'm doing this for me. I thank all you beauties for your advice, courage, and support.


Ok ladies so here's the thing. Initially I was taking the hcg/b12 injections for weight loss to assist with dropping some pounds. Needless to say, even though I've stopped it almost 2 weeks ago, its still showing up in my system. I know with great certainty that I'm not pregnant, but what do I do since it's still showing up in my urine????? I've emailed Dr. Yily's office to see what she says, but I just don't know what to think, or do??? Ughhh, so frustrating.
