I have been wishing and working for an ass for years. Outside of Real self I've been stalking bbls and implants for about 15 years or more. Reading articles, books, etc. I never wanted a implant. 15 years ago most surgeons were pushing implants as the only sure not to have several rounds. I didn't want them.

I'm a diabetic women who is 37, 5'7, and 210. I've at my heaviest gotten up to 250. My glocuse levels are well controlled (A1C is under 6). My The problem is I'm a rectangle shape when I'm thin and a classic apple shape when I'm not. I have a loving husband and 4 beautiful children. Due to time, health concerns, and my husband's insistence I will be remaining in the states.

I didn't mind paying a higher price tag but in all honesty for my starting point and having to stay in the states. Dr. McAdoo was my first choice. I believe I have realistic enough expectations. My waist is 43 inches I realize I won't be a a 26 after round 1. I will without a doubt need a tummy tuck later. My pain tolerance and recovery time will not allow the 2 together. I don't really even want to be "small" I want to be curvy. I booked my December 15th surgery. Pics to some

I went with Dr Alvarez. He was sweet, funny, and great. Day one was pretty easy. Day 2 because of swelling not so much. After my massage I felt so much better. I promise if I knew my experience was going to be this easy I'd done this years ago... Pics to come

When I arrived for sx I was there less than 5 mins before I went back for My last screening. My sx started pretty much on time. They DID NOT RUSH me out of recovery at all. I have no complaints at all.

Some more pics

It was discuss with me not only by Dr Alvarez but other surgeons that I have tight skin on my lower body. This greatly effects the survival rate of the fat placed. If they cram too much it will not only cause the fat cell placed to die but could cause skin injury. I explained this because going in I know I was going to be a 2 or 3 round doll especially in the states. I love my results and can't wait until it softens and fluffs. What I love most is the lipo. I feel like when I get my tummy tuck my waist will be so snatched. Thanks

Beautiful Experience

Most dolls are protective of their surgeon. I'm not... Surgeons are human. They make mistakes, they do. However I believe my surgeons name is unfairly being attacked to this spectrum mess. If you read the reviews on here Spectrum isn't known for being the best at customer service. They keep good to great surgeons but the staff... That's a different story. Dr Alvarez was forced out of spectrum. Even with that he has been nothing but loyal and accommodating to his brand, integrity, and patients. He spent all day yesterday answering questions in IG. He is honoring the spectrum contracts with his name, including money already paid. I can promise this is rare. Surgeons leave offices all the time. This man has gone out of his way to make this as smooth as possible for the patients. If your choice is Spectrum stay and be happy... If you chose Dr Alvarez, whom in my opinion could not be a finer, more upstanding, qualified plastic surgeon, then know he and his office will make this work for you.
