Hello all I am new to this community but not new...

Hello all I am new to this community but not new to the idea of wanting a proportionate body. I am quite excited about finally getting my booty right. Tired of being a flatty! Lololol. I am 5'3" I weigh 128 (enough extra fat to suck out) and I'm 34DD 27 and no hips to mention. Lol. Yes I'm top heavy but bottom light. I have been doing research for years and now the stars have aligned and I'm ready!

I chose Dr Salama because of all you wonderful ladies here who have lead the way. I wonder if he knows this site is feeding his business. Anyhow I have 1child Thad wrecked my body and need it fixed. I called the office and spoke with Nancy super nice then yesterday Nomi. Wow he has a great support staff. I have been to several doctors one in ny who I have seen on a reality date show. I guess that explains why he seemed too busy to give my a proper consultation another that was nice but I didn't have enough fat. One this weekend that just rushed me through. So I came to the net thankfully to find you all. I am truly among friends in the struggle. Lol. Anyhow I don't have a date yet but did put down a deposit. I may have something in aug if I can't get something sooner. Do for now I too am stalking this site and happy it's here.

Hello all I am having the worst time trying to...

Hello all I am having the worst time trying to figure out where to stay. I keep going back and forth from the hampton hallendale and staying in a condo. If I stay in a condo will I be able to walk to eat or to go sight see? Will the driver be able to pick me up there for appointments? I am so confused where to stay. I am also trying to pay a reasonable amount for lodging so looking for a nice place with a good price. I think I will be traveling with a person to help out, not 100% sure yet and my child. Can't roll with out my honey!

Plane tickets booked now just have to decide where...

Plane tickets booked now just have to decide where I will stay. Still deciding on Hampton inn and condos

Ok ladies I'm 6 weeks out from surgery. Plane...

Ok ladies I'm 6 weeks out from surgery. Plane tickets check. Blood ork for clearance check. Clothes for after surgery check. Bed pads for leakage check. I'm still undecided about my hotel though..... I'll shop for snacks when I fly in a day before surgery. I'm also hoping to meet Salama prior to surgery! My brother is going to help me girlfriends not available till weekend. I am concerned about sitting for the flight home though... Can someone chime in and let me know if your allowed to stand? I thought I read something about getting a doctors note? But what does it say? I also I'm waiting to get my package in the mail from Nomie she is super nice wow!

Ok, ladies I am 4 weeks and 3 days away from my...

Ok, ladies I am 4 weeks and 3 days away from my surgery. I am quite excited and nervous all at the same time. I must say though that I am enjoying all you ladies who have gone before me experiences. So mostly I know what to expect and all the details. I especially love when you give the little stuff. I just want to know it all!

So today I just jump on the scale and low and behold I lost 5 pounds! Grrrr now where in the heck did they go and it is gonna be hell to get them back. All along I am at 128 and now I am 123 when I want to loose the extra pounds I couldn't and now I want to keep them and they run away! I guess I am going to have to implement an ensure with each meal trick! I just need to eat, eat, eat until I go for surgery.

Ok, on to another note my bags are mostly packed but I am still looking for a housecoat/duster that buttons down the front or zippers down the front for comfort and easy access to my garment. I am going to hunt at the cheapy store for that tomorrow. I have also seen a lot of you wearing compression socks?? Is that recommended or optional? Just trying to figure out if I need them or not?

I am also a wee bit concerned Mr. Larry and his shenanigans being late! I am super organized and waiting while in pain will not be nice. And cancelled doctors appointments with the doctor because the driver is running late is also not nice. So I am wondering what can be done to make sure that won't be the case... In any event if I have to hop in a cab (which I hope I won't have to since this is supposed to be "all inclusive") I will just so I can see the doc when he is available. After all I am flying all the way down there so I would like to be seen when he is able to see his patients. I am also staying on sterling road which I hear if a bit farther than the driver would like to go???? And I hear it takes longer to get to and fro... Ugh being in pain and not being able to make appointments is not a good mix.

Anyway to end on a happy note I am still quite excited and am anxious for all this to come to fruition. Thank you ladies for sharing your journey with me. Still counting down....

Hello My BBL sisters. I am officially about a...

Hello My BBL sisters. I am officially about a month away from surgery. I am still quite excited along with very nervous. Seeing good reviews along with some problems is only making me a bit more nervous. But all in all I love Salama's work each girl that he operates on has awesome results and I can't deny it!

Ok so today I went out and bought my antibacterial dial bar soap (usually only use liquid). My suitcase is packed and someone posted a pic of a folding chair which I can't seem to find does anyone know where I can find one. You can let your butt hang off the back. I am still eating recklessly and trying to avoid my treadmill so I don't lose any weight!

I am contemplating CC's I want. I have seen where some docs only put 250-400 I don't want anything near that number. I want at least 1000cc's if that fits my frame. I want to allow for absorption and a nice rear that is NOT ridiculous. Any whoo I will post weekly until I get closer and I may post more. I guess isn't too much to say until I get to Florida. Wishing you all successful surgeries and healthy healing.

Hey ladies! Well this is my month! I am still...

Hey ladies! Well this is my month! I am still excited and nervous but in a good way. I am still not 100% where I will stay though. I have reserved the Hampton Inn in Hollywood but can't help but think I don't want to be locked in a room while recovering. I want a balcony at least and the beach to watch! Ugh, but for all of this do I want to pay double the hotel stay?...So while I am keeping my Hampton reservation just in case now I am exploring vacation rentals near the beach and near Salama's office. My bags are still packed and I am ready to go!

Any suggestions would be helpful about a 1 Bedroom rental would be helpful. My brother and child are coming with me but my brother snores like a damn bear and we must be separated by a door! My son is there for comfort :-).

Hello all welp I am all paid up! So yes it's going...

Hello all welp I am all paid up! So yes it's going down! I am just a couple of weeks away. With all these mixed reviews I am a bit nervous, but more good than bad so I am going to roll with that! I am still going back and forth trying to find a suitable vacation condo and I am going to let the Hampton Inn go to the waaaay side. I would much rather see the ocean and just be in that setting and have a balcony for fresh air! Anywho I will keep all my BBL sisters posted since I can't talk about this to a damn sole since no one else knows. lol. The few people that know I am going in only know I am going in for a TT don't need the judgement for the BBL or the stares. I am just gonna cover up when close family is around and my great reveal will be next summer when I have put time and space between them and my new bottom! lol. Anywho I am enjoying those that have chosen to share their stories and photos. And I am anxiously awaiting my turn.

Ok trying to wind down on this condo option. Thank...

Ok trying to wind down on this condo option. Thank you!! Tryingtomakeithappen for your assistance. Ok so I should know if I am confirmed in a few short days. No free breakfast but the ocean beats free food any day. I also have decided to bring my mini blender to make myself fruit smoothies w/ protein and whey. That should help when I don't want to eat. I am right around the 2 week timeframe and I am getting excited. Chat soon my BBL family. Happy healing to you all.

Ok I finally booked a 1Bedroom Condo on the beach!...

Ok I finally booked a 1Bedroom Condo on the beach! I put a deposit down and still have my reservation for my hotel just incase (side eye). It is my first time renting from an owner and so I was very apprehensive about booking via PayPal.....

Anyhow I am less than two weeks out and I am just ready to go although I won't be ready to come back home with no massage therapists lined up. Just why am I not doing what I need to do. I have a few other pressing things going on at home and am slacking a bit. I am going to find a therapist this week!

I have gained the weight and am having a bit of fun keeping it. I just hope I will not have a problem after surgery with all of these poor eating habits. Oh yeah tried on a pair of pants that were fitted and guess what they are too damn tight! I can only imagine when I get my new bum how they will fit... they wont! I still have tags on them and will just exchange them for a bigger size in a few weeks. I am looking forward to the newer improved me :-). My unofficial official count down has begun in my head.

Thanks all of those that have shared and are continuing to share their progress.

Ok my TT & BBL sisters. I am in the single...

Ok my TT & BBL sisters. I am in the single digits with days remaining. At this point I am not too nervous since it is all so surreal and it has been something that I have been wanting to do for such a long time. So I am just anxious and ready to get it done! I am sure I will be singing a different tune in a few days right about before I board the plane or am being wheeled into surgery! LOL but for right now I am ready. Now just deciding to rent a darn car or go with Larry, I am still hearing he is having people wait around (side eye). I will decide about that in literally the next 3 or 4 days. Welp ladies happy healing!

Still on my count down 1 week to go! Oh and...

Still on my count down 1 week to go!

Oh and for the "special" person sending me a pm wanting to charge me $225 if I choose not to use larry NO THANK YOU!!! I have been to south beach at least a dozen times and know the area well plus I have family and friends in the area! Why would I use a total stranger I do not know????? Also I can just rent a car since I will have someone with me! The nerve trying to solicit me! People are more than a little crazy!

On a lighter note i'm on my count down! Still deciding on using larry or not I am calling the office to see if I can get that credited back and I will use my own form of transport to and fro. Happy healing to you all!!!

Ok ladies well I am less than a week out whoot...

Ok ladies well I am less than a week out whoot whoot! Ok so I have decided to not use Larry. I have heard too many horror Larry stories and late stories and girls piled in the car stories. I just can't I just want a seamless process as possible and waiting for larry and being piled in the back of a car or dodging traffic no thank you! So I have rented a car and I will have friends and family take me to my appointments! Yaaa.

So I have also decided to pack my mini blender so that I can blend bananas, strawberries, blue berries and protein to give me much needed nutrients. I think I am all packed (been packed for a month, giggle) I just add a thing or two when I read an update and say hey I need that and take a thing or two out when I read something and say ah don't need this.

Ok that's it for now just ready to go! See ya on the other side :-). I will update if I have something else unimportant to say. lol.

Ok, my BBL sisters I have less than a hand full of...

Ok, my BBL sisters I have less than a hand full of days left!! Yipeee, next week will be my week! I got a call from Mr. Larry today asking if I were using his services, and I was happy to let him know that I was not. He seemed very nice, however using my own transportation will ensure that my rides will be ontime and be waiting for me and me only! I will purchase some throw pillows when I get down to Florida for the back seat of my car rental. I also bought a portable folding chair that your butt can hang off the back for $17 bucks also found Arnica at Walmart. I have all that I need or can remember!

To those who have already had their surgeries I wish you happy healing. The next official surgery day it will be my turn!!!

Oh and finally got condo squared away with cable....

Oh and finally got condo squared away with cable. Who can live without it??? Not me that will be my only inttainment besides the pain. I told the manager other girls will WANT premium cable so if you book with This guy ask for it! He is also putting tv in bedroom where currently there is none. What!! I don't want YO be all alone in there no tv for distraction just me and the sound of my cries of pain! Lololol no thank you. Ok enough condo rant. I also have a Xanax on deck for the night before. I know I will be up the whole night.

For recovery I'm intending to sit on that folding chair with my butt hanging off and sleep on my knees if needed. I emailed the lady about the special chair with tilted pillow she's not available right now ugh.

Ok my sisters. Chat soon!

Ok did last minute shopping to pick up a couple of...

Ok did last minute shopping to pick up a couple of more old lady button down the front dresses. I heard they may get all bloody after surgery so I now have a grand total of 3 if I have to toss one no biggie since they were only $4.99. I also have gauze, surgical tape and neosporin. Can't think of anything else.... Ah well just couple more days till my flight to Fll and less than 5 days till surgery. Yipeeeee. Now just waiting to get to the other side :-) It seems like it was just weeks away now it is just a few days till surgery time sure does fly fast!

Happy healing to those before me!

Ok I am getting more than a few requests for this...

Ok I am getting more than a few requests for this lil stool where your butt hangs off so here it is for all. http://www.austinkayak.com/products/5421/Byer-of-Maine-TriLite-Stool-Large.html It is $17 bucks and you sit on your thighs and your butt hangs off the back. It is sturdy and it is affordable and portable. It comes in like a mini umbrella case so you can carry it in a large purse. I am taking mine with me in my luggage to Florida I may buy two one for home and one to carry around to work. Enjoy folks!

This week is all me :-) Just a couple more days....

Hey my BBL sisters. Whelp I'm here in Kansas :-). I'm waiting to meet Salama he's in surgery right now. Oddly enough I'm not nervous just a bit anxious and ready to go! So I can now say officially see you on the other side of happiness! All prayers are welcome!

Oh went into sign papers yesterday and met with Ruben, Nancy & Nomie the whole gang super sweet and real. Ruben is hysterical. What a nice bunch of people they kept me at ease and were just nice. Oh oh god just walked in.. I mean Salama.

Hey all I made it to the other side. I'm sore still and a bit of burning by incisions. Salama ROCKS!!!! I don't see anything just know I'm hard didn't wanna leave you hanging. Will update later when I feel better.

Hello my bbl sisters so here goes it. I went in...

Hello my bbl sisters so here goes it. I went in for surgery met with alex anesthesia nurse he was nice answered all my Q's. I had to wait a bit for surgery about an hour and a half. I got there at 11 am it's in a bank office building if all girls didn't mention I would have been more lost I passed it the first time.

After signing more papers Salama came in. I was surprisingly calm he was funny but direct he made me feel comfortable. After fussing and fighting about the tummy tuck he was not going to give me I totally understood why. He was right and I got a mini. Can't see it yet

Got into or and met dr Alan who assisted Salama I introduced myself. The most I got outta him was a greeting he was quiet as a mouse. Oh a columbian nurse was there Salama has a team of multiple counties on his staff everyone from different places nice. She was sweet.. I got iv from alex asd asked him to let me know when I was going down he said ok Next thing I remember is saying please,please,please more water. The female nurse said that's enough it's the anesthia.

Woke up in a comfy chair a lil sore I was cocked to the side must have done this sub consciously. She was like time to go. From what iwas toldni said please I wast to stay here. Please 5 more minutes. Then when I was told again time to go I said again 5 more mins I want to stAy. Lol must a been the drugs. Oh took a percoset when I woke up.

My brother was there I remember being wheeled to the car I could care less if I was on my butt or eyeball. I crawled into car with my pillows and boppy. My bro said I did a lot os ouches on my way to condo which was only 5 miles away nod literally across from the beach.

Got to condo had water gatoraide broccoli soup from whole foods and rice I had him putin it it was delicious had it the day before and he had it waiting. Then I hadngrapes a banana and more grapes. I was so super hungry!! I took my perks every 2 hours for the first 6 now I'm up to 4-5 hours in between. I felt less and less and less groggy as the hours past I actually mentally felt great just achey and draining quite a bit. My throat is sour but tolerable and I need a good cough but can't get a good one it. I woke up every 2 hours to pee I use funnel but I'm able to go alons just tired when I get back to the bed. My brother changed my drains then my friend took the night shift all modesty out the window. I munched before each percoset so no nausea! One drain came loose so fluid everywhere ingot up took of my second button front $4.99 dres went to the bathroom and washed it and cleaned up while my girlfriend chained my sheets and chucks an the bet thank goodness I brought alot. I had cheese andcrckere around 6 and I feel really good just stiff and sore. I haven't looked at myself just trying to heal. I'll ask someone at the office today when I go see Salama.

Thank you for all your well wishes and prayers. Ask away anything I forgot. Oh Salama gives you arnica pills.

Update Ok today I needed to go back to 3 hours for...

update Ok today I needed to go back to 3 hours for pain pills. I am just so achey. I also went to see Salama today and it was right around eating and pain pills time. Can I tell you how quickly my situation went from good to poor. I just felt week and awful. And it didn't help that we got lost on the way and it just added to the time it took to get to the doctor. I went in my lil old lady robe. It is easy to wash and they al get bloody may I suggest you leave your fancy dresses at home!

So saw Nomie she is an absolute doll. She had me lay down and just gather my strength before she changed my tummy garment I had her take a photo I will post in a bit and she put on a nice new non bloody one. She is so kind and gentle as you can be in this situation. My er nurse was there her name escapes me but she is funny between my lil spanish and her lil english we had some laughs! My time with Salama was good I didn't feel rushed he said what he had to say and answered any questions then he was off! oh i got 1200cc's he said that is all my lil square butt could take. lol. I said it wasn't big he said it was I don't see it but it is too early to judge. It is just swollen and red and bruised I will try and take a pic soon of that. It had a lil shelf I'd like to see a slope but like I said far too soon to know what form my body will make my bum. He can only add the
cc's but your body does the rest.

I got some soup took a nap and am just laying around with trips to the bathroom every 2 hours. I see Celia tomorrow I am not looking forward to the pain that she will be bring with her!

Thank you for all your support my bbl sisters. Sad that I didn't get to meet any of you at the office or surgery center.

June 28 th. I go back ad forth how I feel.. I'm...

June 28 th. I go back ad forth how I feel.. I'm sure it has to do with not eating. I know hut you just don't wanna! Celia called me and said tomorrow will be better. So tomorrow @ 10 am. Me n Cecilia will meet.

Other than being tired and super stiff I'm ok. I walk real slow and each movement is a huge effort.

Update: Ok gang I am 3 days post op and I am...

update: Ok gang I am 3 days post op and I am taking less meds because the percs make me sick but I did take one for Celia's visit. I keep getting hot flashes but Nomie says that is from the Anastasia. I woke up and waited for Celia and when she came ooooh boy! that was a come to jesus moment! That massage was a bit painful I didn't cry but wanted to and had two fists balled up just waiting to strike at some moments. My lower right tummy in particular was the worst all the other parts was ok. The most amazing part is right after she was done I could have skipped around I had a bounce in my step and felt 100% better. What a difference a massage makes.

Other than that I am just lazing around which I should be walking but I am just tired. Nothing else new to report but you can ask any questions you would like. Happy healing to those on the other side, and your time will come soon for those that are waiting to join us.

Oh I posted pics and I see my shape starting to form berry berry nice.

Day. 3 post op. I dons need percs Tylenol is fine....

Day. 3 post op. I dons need percs Tylenol is fine. Still stiff after laying on my sides. Had my second massage with elin yikes pain! I made her sweat. It was painful especially where the front drain is. After massage I felt good and had my first shower and I felt great.

Ok I have not went to do #2 for a week. My bro got Swiss kriss at 4am. Stool softener at 6am no action I just feel bloated and yucky. For those that have went through this please help.

Update hey ladies.... Finally had action in the...

Update hey ladies.... Finally had action in the bathroom on day 2after Swiss kriss. I feel much better. I sat on the toilet although I dunno why some don't?..... Your butt doesn't touch just your thighs....

Ok saw Salama today his nice and looks so serious sometimes even when cracking a joke. I said when will my hour glass show up? He said man your obsessed with this hourglass your only 5 days post op... We both laughed I said if I liked my old shape why would I come to you?! We both laughed again. Nomie put on a tight med garment not hooked I screeched too much I'm not taking any more pain meds so that probably was the problem. Then she gave me a large to take home and to use med later. In pulled out the side sponges I couldn't breathe... I'll have Celia help me tomorrow after my massage.

You know I'm glad I did this surgery but you sure do have a different outlook once it's done. 1 I won't be coming back for revision no matter the outcome. 2 I don't like being uncomfortable and having people do stuff for me. I also hate taking all these meds.....

Any who yesterday I walked to the boardwalk. It's about 30 steps from the condo I can see the beach if I take 2 or 3 steps out the front door that's nice.. But I mostly see the bed and bathroom.

Happy healing to those who are on the other side, and your time will soon be here for those waiting...

Update Hey my BBL sisters. Not sure if I have been...

update Hey my BBL sisters. Not sure if I have been sounding too upbeat but not feeling 100% is a bit difficult. I just rest a lot and force myself to eat because you just don't want to eat. And with all these damn annoying meds you MUST eat! Did I mention the now frequent trips to the bathroom due to the darn antibiotics. They make me so sleepy and not myself and leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Ok so the details since this is what I use to live for. Today day 6 honestly each day you feel a lil bit better I do move around just slow and the heat out here is HOT so that makes it a bit harder. Last night I took that damn garment off and threw it somewhere! I started with one eyelet then another and another and another and before I knew it it was across the room! I couldn't do it i put my belly band on.

celia came a 4pm ove her she is super sweet and did massage with ultra sound then hands. I took a half a perc today wasn't interested in handling the pain without meds. I felt great after she helped me put my large garment on with that damn foam which makes it tighter. It felt much better today now I am waiting for food and getting ready for home yaaaaa.

Update: Ok where did I leave off... July 3rd...

Update: Ok where did I leave off...

July 3rd was my 8th day post op and I had to pack up and leave my condo before my doctors appt which caused me to be 45 minutes late. I thought I would see Salama but I did not I saw Lovely Nomie and Celia for my painful massage :-). So I go to the doctors office which I had to wait since I was late and Celia was at lunch and Nomie took me straight to a room to lay down. They are super accommodating and always seem to really think of the patients comfort. So Celia came in with her upbeat self, I love that she speaks spanglish which is what they call it in the BX (where I am from) and always say pero instead of but. She is just so nice head to toe and she has a great personality till she puts her hands on me then I get to balling up my fists again then start fake shadow boxing, we both just giggle. So my 4th massage was just as horrible as the first it hurt like hell and ofcourse after she was done I could almost do a skip and I am so loose.

Then Nomie comes in I think she is just going to remove the drains... I know that the back will hurt less than the front, but WOW the back was uncomfortable but the front OOOOOOOOOOOOUCH!!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR I bit down on the towel I was laying on. It just felt like burning even after she took it out she said (insert my name here) I am holding it in my hand. That was so painful!!!!!!!!! She squeezed out some of the fluids from my drain in my back and she said it was protein. I then put on my garment and said goodbye to my Elite Team and was on the way home.

Went to the airport and they saw me walking at the speed of a slough offered me a wheel chair which I used for my things. They then said at the desk you have too many pieces to go on board you must check some. I had 2 carry on's and 2 boppys I said I just had surgery and my boppys are for me to lay on.... They said ok (big smile). I handed my doctors note when I got to the desk before departure and I noticed this delta guy just standing there and he said i'm here to help you. He took all my stuff and brought it to my seats. Oh did I mention they gave me a whole row to myself so that I could lay down. The attendant said there is no law that says you have to be seated you just have to be seatbelted. So she went off came back helped me get comfy laying down gave me 3 blankets and a seatbelt extension so that it wasn't tight around my mid section. So I slept the whole flight. Got to NY and they had a wheel chair waiting for me I kinda sat on my boppy on my thigh slanted and they waited with me while my ride took a damn hour to get there but they waited. So the flight was GREAT!!!

Next day I was just swollen it was hot as hell in NY and I was less stiff by the day but just uncomfortable. I have a therapist set up for next wednesday.

Riding in the car with that damn boppy may get you killed! That damn thing is too bulky have a suv and it is already high it makes me higher and I am damn near at the ceiling. I went out and bought that roll pillow but it seems after a while your butt gets closer and closer to the seat. So with my right arm I kinda suspend myself in the air. I know sounds crazy but wait till you have to do it and you will know. Just getting in and out of my car is such a hassle so I am glad I never have too far to go.

Day 11 I am all swollen my back tummy and lady parts all like one big water mellon. I dare not take off my garment except to shower and right back on it goes before I am all dry. I am still not wearing panties.. why because I didn't like the feel of it on me and with this garment I didn't want another damn thing squeezing the life outta me! I did put on a pair of scrubs today and they were tight where before they fit with space. So I am still wearing sun dresses and don't care if my garment shows through. My back is still sore as hell you know the most discomfort from this whole thing besides my butt being swollen and stuffed to capacity is the lipoed areas i.e. my back. My tummy tuck (mini) incision bothered me NONE but my back YIKES!!!

So there it is please ask all you like. What I have found is... after the transition you become less obsessed with the site so I am not stalking like I use to but if you send me a message I will always reply. Best of luck to all my BBL sisters.

Small update on day 12. I switched to medium...

Small update on day 12. I switched to medium garment yesterday and I am back to feeling like a stuffed turkey. Ugh but hey I am trying I slept in my garment but I had to unhook a few of the hooks at the top to sleep. My back is still super sore to the touch still. My tt zero pain but darn lipo lots of discomfort when I am touched. Also I am swollen like a stuffed grape! My lady parts still all stuffed and my stomach is swollen and back also. Oh I also forgot to mention from time to time I get the urge to itch my but and when I do OMG it is like an itching frenzy! I have the liquid benadryl and arnica... I am not sure if either works. I just have to itch till I tell my self to STOP then itch a wee lil more then stop then after a few more scratches here and there I really stop!

I sleep pretty comfortably on my sides and this is the position I sleep in anyway. I use the boppy between my let and an arm of it under my torso and that helps. I sleep for many more hours through the night about 4 or 5 where as before it was just 2 hours at a time to pee. I still use my rubber lady urinal so this stops me from having to take the garment off just to pee. Anything to not take his garment off is a good thing! I have my sponges in the triangle on the back and the two rectangle pieces on the sides. One had a half circle missing from when I tried to yank it out 2 nights ago because I JUST COULDN'T TAKE IT! I am eating way better not but not like before surgery. My mood has been somewhat somber don't get why you get that way after surgery......

My butt is still hard and my tummy still feels like an alien's from the inside when I take my garment off but to the touch it feels like skin but on the inside it just feels weird! My silhouette is nice but dunno about my projection...... but then again may be too soon to tell at 12 days. Each persons body heals differently, but you know Salama said the most interesting thing.. He said he did the same exact thing to each persons butt. So it is your body that will truly form how it will form because he is doing the exact thing across the board. I found that to be quite interesting... So with all that said I know my butt is bigger because when I put on a pair of panties they fit like they NEVER have fit in the past so I must just wait and see.

Wishing all of you happy healing and those not on the this side yet your turn is coming soon!

Question for those who have had their surgery...

Question for those who have had their surgery already. I am wearing my garment and ofcourse a piece of both butt cheeks are hanging out the middle and it seems like the garment is creasing my darn butt!!! What should I do? What did you do?

Ok 13 Days Post op. I went back to work today......

Ok 13 Days Post op. I went back to work today... Ugh. Wasn't really mentally ready but physically I thought I was. I felt great this morning and had wind to walk and with each day you truly feel a little bit better, as it has been said so many times before. I sit for work and all that sitting with my butt hanging off of that lil chair had me all swollen my tummy is swollen and I just felt all bloated. Need to work out my massage situation in the next 2 days!

Garment and but hanging out of the middle. Pain in the butt! Grrr. 1st I was wearing my garment with out any undies it was just easier to go to the bathroom and it was just easy access. Well I put on a pair of panties and it made a huge difference because I was having some serious hang and when I sat and felt that part of my butt I was like this is gonna mold just like this grrrrr.

My butt has pangs of pain here and there every so often and sometimes still a lil itchy. I sleep on my sides and when I turn and touch the middle part of my but if feels like I am laying on something even if it is just wrinkled sheet it must be smooth under my side or it is uncomfortable. My butt is still hard but it seems to be softening a little bit on the lower end.

I took a photo today for you BBL girls so that you can see my progress my butt is nice :-) I am still super swollen on my waist and lower back so that should look better at some point. I will keep you posted you can ask any questions you like.

Hey my BBL Sisters! Just wanted to give you...

Hey my BBL Sisters!

Just wanted to give you an update! Nothing too interesting going on though but I know how it was when I was waiting... So ok on day 14 no biggie, as I said before and as many have said before me with each day that passes you truly feel a lil bit better. This week I am still using my little stool where my but hangs off the back, but there is a price to be paid! My thighs are sore, but that is ok I'd rather that than my but flat! lol. I know that at 2 weeks we can use the boppy but I refuse! I just don't want to sit on my butt for now it cost too damn much money to go squashing my precious fat cells that have been so strategically placed.

I find as long as I am moving and walking I feel much better than sitting (with butt hanging off of my little stool). My garment is also easier to get on and off. I am still swollen in the front and my back, lower more than upper. I slept in my large garment the other night while I washed my medium. Let me tell you it was comfy which means it is now too darn big! It fit nice around the butt and the stomach area it was not really that constricting. I probably could go down to a small but I don't need my precious bum constricted.

I finally had my first massage today. Hallelujah! She was $50 for half hour and she actually went a little longer. Can I tell you I now feel less swelling I feel all lubed up. It was NOT as painful as Celia (love her) or Elin (love her too) but then I am 17 days post op so I am healing some parts were a wee bit uncomfy but no pain involved at all! I was walking to my car this morning and thought I felt a little giggle but not sure (side eye) i'll let you know if I feel that again. lol. I think my body is coming along nicely and I don't want to comment on my final outcome because the final product has not been produced. What I can say is from what I can see now I am happy. My shape and my but are much fuller than before and I am currently happy in which the direction my body is going.

Wishing you all well! Happy healing!

Need some help from those that just had surgery...

Need some help from those that just had surgery and got the steri-strip. Nomie gave me tape for gaze and one steristrip I don't know which is which. Damit. One says 3m in the middle and micropore. The other one is just clear in the middle of he role a clear plastic middle. What does your seri strip look like in the middle??? I have no damn idea which is which I think I am gonna put the one with the 3m in the middle on. I need to change my tape today ugh! Help!!! Thanks!

Hello my BBL Sisters, Welp it has been 3...

Hello my BBL Sisters,

Welp it has been 3 weeks and 1 day. I have added some pics for you all to see. I know I was super obsessed with pictures as the girls went through their journey so I totally know how you feel. But now that I am on the other side I can see day to day so you kinda are not too interested in pics since it is now happening to me. But I will share just like others before me shared with all of us.

Ok, so as I have said each day I feel more and more like the old me, but not 100% just yet. I had my second massage since I have been home yesterday and that lady totally sucked. She did not hit any of my lymph nodes and she massaged me over a damn towel. Needless to say I will be going back to the first lady I went to in the damn first place! She was totally good and I just wanted to have some options... I guess not.

At work I am less stiff when I sit down for about 45 minutes at a time. I still use that stool where my but hangs off. Each time I get up am stiff though just not as stiff as last week, but stiff just the same. I get up slowly... I am still in the Medium garment and my damn butt still hangs out in the damn middle. Nomie said to cut the epi foam and put it where the creases are but it still leaves dents??? Ugh I may get a garment that compresses the mid section with the thong thing so my but is not bothered. Because truth be told I slept in the Large garment the other night while I washed my medium and my but felt quite comfy in that large and so did the rest of my body lol. I put on my Medium when morning came though. When I pee I still pull my garment to the side and do not take it off. I only take off my garment for #2 and showers other than that it stays on. Lucky for me I love hot weather so my garment doesn't make me hot in these hot days I am actually quite comfy in it except for where the arm pits are I am a bit sore there from the cut of the garment and how it fits, thats a bit annoying!

Hmmm trying to remember anything else.. OH I woke up last night mortified to find I was laying on my damn back!!! Grrrrrrr I immediately rolled over on my right side. Now how in the hell did that happen I am not a back sleeper! Also, when I roll from left to right when the bed touches my butt it feels like I have small golf balls in my but so to even lay on my butt is not comfy so I wouldn't go into that position naturally.

I have noticed my butt is getting a little softer by the day I am wondering if it will drop. I saw a neighbor the other day and I had on sweats and she asked me if I had on a garment with padded butt?? I was like ahhh no! They don't come padded!!!!! Then she reached out and kinda pinched grabbed my butt!!!!! I was a cross between mortified/horrified/surprised and puzzled all at once! My butt was a bit firm but it is mine and real. Hello! He was like ohhh girl your gonna look good when you heal. For those just tuning in I told NO ONE about my BBL the only thing anyone knows is I had a mini TT that is it. That is all they are gonna know the rest is MY BUSINESS! I have noticed now I am checking out my own butt. My clothes hang on my lil shelf Salama gave me and my clothes move differently than before. I wear scrubs so you can't see much but I can see my butt is super round and big! I like it. I haven't worn anything besides dresses or scrubs since I came home I just can't do all that work. I did try on a pair of jeans this morning and that was a fight but it was on my butt like (in my black rob voice) Whoa! lol Not ready for the stares yet so I am just gonna keep my scrubs and dresses on, but in dresses my butt does that left to right thing with the fabric :-) kinda nice. I am enjoying the new me being formed. I am happy with the progress so far and look forward to seeing the final product. Thank you Dr. Salama for helping me get to the me I felt I should have been all along (((((HUGS)))))

Any questions please feel free to ask

Ok I am 24 days PO and I am posting more pics...

Ok I am 24 days PO and I am posting more pics since the others didn't do my new booty justice. I look smaller in pics but in real life I have what is turning out to be a nice new butt with a lil shelf! Hope these give you a better idea of my progress. Oh my lower back is still swollen I think you can tell by the photo and my upper back is feeling better by the day and my tummy is still swollen.

Hey BBL Sisters. 4 weeks post op here. I just had...

Hey BBL Sisters. 4 weeks post op here. I just had my 3rd massage since I have been home and it was great! This lady works out of Mount Vernon and she is awesome!

So how do I feel. I feel like my old self mostly. My butt is nice and big, bigger than before. The projection is nice for my height and weight but the hour glass figure that I wanted and requested not so much... I am trying not to be too judgmental because I am still in the healing process but if I don't have the hips I want now I doubt they will grow in the next 1 to 2 months.... :-/. I just don't know. I am super happy I did the surgery and if I had the option to do it all over again I would, but I would stress hour glass figure which I did and we spoke about it before and after surgery....

So all and all I am happy not 100% satisfied since I think what I thought would happen didn't. However, I do have nice/decent projection and a better overall figure and sometimes it seems you have to do the damn thing twice. Not sure if I have the stomach to do any of this again. So I will have to say I am ok with what I have so far at this point. The last photo is 4 weeks today.

Happy healing to all that have come to the other side, and for those waiting waiting for you all to join us!

Update: Here we go... Hey my bbl sister. I am...

Update: Here we go... Hey my bbl sister. I am gonna keep it real as those did before me. So here goes.... So I sent the doc some pics of me 4 weeks post op and stated my concerns. He replied 2 days later... Basically said fat was reabsorbed and the body will do what it will no matter how we try to alter it. First I want to say my butt looks waaaaay better than it did! I could grab Salama and give him a big fat wet one on the mouth for my transformation! Yeah I said it!!! What? I look better in sun dresses, shorts and pants. I haven't tried in a fitted dress yet. That will be the grand finally on week 6. That is a few short days away.... So my one concern is how my butt looks from the back view... Notice I didn't post any of those shots sands clothes... Whelp that's because it's semi "squarish.". But not due to Salama's expertise or lack there of. Just my body and how it feels it should be. I guess it said to me "optimisticPlam, you may force some fat in here to make me bigger but I will remain runners butt square!". Lol.

So what are his suggestions?.... But of course revision...duh... More money, more money more problems! No thank you! I'm gonna just wait and see how I look and feel in 5 more months. But I doubt I can do this not sitting thing recovery thing again... And what in the Britney speers does a revision cost????

On another note. I'm still using my roll pillow in the car, still sitting on my stool with butt hanging off and still sleeping on my sides until I feel safe to keep my remaining fat! Now that I think about it my side fat must of reabsorbed right away had he not sent me a pic o would of sworn it was never there.... Oh oh...... Perhaps me sleeping on my damn sides may have done it??? Grrrrr but how in the he'll to sleep??? Another reason why he doesn't do TT with bbl!!!!!! Co ant sleep on tummy so must sleep on sides where precious fat grafts are struggling to be revasculated.....

Ah whelp can't win them all, and as I stated. My new shape beats the old. So for now I'll just have to wait and iee if my booty fluffs out.. But again I am liking my lil shelf and bigger size and just for that I thank Salama.......

Happy healing to my sisters on the other side and those on the road to meet is!

So what are your thoughts?

Hello my bbl sisters. Well it's been 5 weeks whew...

Hello my bbl sisters. Well it's been 5 weeks whew that went fast! Let's see still feeling good. My booty is soft but my lower back is still swollen. I had my 8th massage on Monday and it's no longer painful well in some spots a lil uncomfortable but not really pain. My therapist is great!!!

I still am using roll pillow and back rest when I drive and at 5 weeks plus I'm still using stool to sit with butt hanging off. I find sometimes at night I roll onto my butt and I get all upset but what I realize it's not uncomfortable... I still shift to my SIDS I'm a side sleeper anyway. I sat on the couch just to test out my new bum and as it was sais before I did feel like I was sitting on the remote control. But when I checked no remote control just butt lololol. I then laid down on my sides. I just don't want to sit yet. Yesterday I sat on a bench outside to see how it felt and it felt ok... Then I quickly shifted all my weight to my things then after about 60 seconds I stood up lololol I'm my own booty police.

To all the vets 5 weeks and beyond when did you sit? Also when did you sit comfortably?

I do feel good about my results but I've found I feel differently depending on the week. But please know this I look 100% better than pre op. I also still steal glances of my donk when I pass a store window and just giggle to myself at my secret. No one but you all know and I mean no one! People are too mosey and judgmental! I am loving the new me! But as I said before I wear uniform so I haven't showcased my new figure just yet. I think maybe when I stop wearing my garment which is about 3 weeks away! Can't wait. I bought a thong garment this weekend!!! I have a small but my post op garment from Salama is a medium. That damn thong garment had me wake up at 5 am and fling it across the room and I put on my medium garment half damp! That thong is something vicious. First off the damn thong is too thick and felt like it was splitting me in half! It did shape me nice though. I may try it again at 6 weeks.

Ok hope my updates have helped as all those before me helped me. Didn't post a pic look the same as last week. Perhaps at week 6. Can't believe first it was a thought, then found this site next thing I know I'm putting down a deposit and now I'm done....just wow. Happy healing and to those waiting to come to the other side your day is coming...... Cheers.

Hello my BBL sisters. All is well. I am now 6...

Hello my BBL sisters. All is well. I am now 6 weeks and some change post op. I am still not sitting all the way although I have sat about 3 times and it was ok. Funny thing it was better on a park bench than at the nail salon when I was getting a pedi. I have to admit I always want to lean on my thighs with my weight than put the weight on my butt. I am still wearing my garment although I went 2 days with out it and I was just sensitive so I put it back on I feel more supported with it on. I think at 8 weeks I will just wear it at night. Someone said that you don't have the same shape in the garment as you do out. lol That is 100% truth! I have a fabulous shape in my garment and a decent shape with out it. My butt also looks rounder and fuller with the garment on rather than off. Then I went to the garments website and it says how it has a but lifter so that makes sense.

Ok so I have sat but when I sit on the couch it feels funny like I am sitting on round rocks wonder when it will all feel normal again. When I run my but does giggle lol I just laugh to myself. I look much better in clothes still, although I wish I had more volume and more projection. No one can tell I had anything done but I don't wear tight clothes it is believable. Somedays when I think my but has shrunk and is just a wee little bit larger than before I put on a pair of pants and say oh there you go... It is odd you feel small and wished you went bigger (went as big as I could go 1200cc's) then you put something on and it defies what you think you see.

I feel burning sensation sometimes when I lay down too long on my back. I still sleep on my sides when I am home and I am still sitting on a stool with my butt hanging off the back. I am so happy that I have done this surgery and doubt I would go back for round two because of the long recovery. Pro's everything. I fit my clothes better, I feel better about myself and my figure and just love the new shape. The booty hasn't changed my life in any real way other than how I feel about me. I just wish some of the volume would have stayed but each body is different and will only hold so much injected fat. I am still at 6 weeks so I wonder if my butt will change more like fluff?..... Hopefully I am at the point where no more volume will be lost.

Happy healing to you all if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Hello Ladies, I am almost 8 weeks post op and...

Hello Ladies,

I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am healing well. My mini tt scar is just a hair line and I am still putting the tape on it for support. My butt went down some not since last time just in general. But I read somewhere where Ruben told someone that it wasn't fat absorption when it goes down quickly but the swelling that has gone away. I always some trepidation about being too verbal about my results since you don't see them at week 1, 2 or 3. But now I am at week 8 and while my results are better I wished for a bit more projection.

Ok still having the burning sensation all over my back to the point I have to jump out of the bed. I looked it up and basically it is the nerves waking back up and getting back on the job. That is annoying in the morning and in the middle of the night to have a burning back! Yikes! Oh and I noticed a bit of cellulite on my right butt cheek grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I looked that up and based on what they said (the doctors) it is not because of the surgery it would have had to have been pre-existing that the fat deposited doesn't give you cellulite... Hmm why not??? Isn't that what fat does. I think I am able to work out now, so I am gonna hop on that thread mill tonight! Because the weight gain before surgery and then not being able to work out only makes you flabby!

Self observation here is the crazy thing. Some days I feel sad because my but just isn't what I have seen other girls have and it is just a wee bit bigger or the same... Then I put on a pair of pants and I am struggling and I am like oh it didn't go away. Your mind truly plays games on you. All my old jeans fit but in the butt it is super tight and my thighs seem to be a bit larger also and my waist doesn't fit a damn thing. Nice problem to have trust. So my feelings are mixed.

Revision, it was discussed by Salama... but all that I went through expenses, emotional physical... I just don't know if I can do this again.. I have to think on it and see what the next 4 months presents.

Happy healing to you all!!!

Ok my BBL sisters. I am 8 weeks post op today. My...

Ok my BBL sisters. I am 8 weeks post op today. My feelings are still mixed. Today I had a good pic and I notice I am swollen still in my lower back so I am going to have to get that worked out with my therapist. I also don't need to wear my garment anymore but I will wear it at night with my epi foam to get the swelling down in my lower back.

Let me know what you think. The pic with the green strips is the 8 week pic taken today. I would just hate to go through this again but I think more projection may be in order. I still have to wait 4 more months to even get anything done. But as I have always stated I look better than before and Salama is the best! Also each person's results is just that their own. Some may take one time others may take two. My body absorbed alot of the fat right away and I had 1200 cc's so I can't call it. My butt is fuller but I think I would like for it to be bigger. I will let ya know in 4 months.

Wish you all happy healing, and to those waiting to come over your time is winding down with each day!

Ok still 8 weeks and a couple of days post op. I...

Ok still 8 weeks and a couple of days post op. I slept with my garment on last night and all of my epifoam and it helps with the swelling I also had the garment on all day. I guess I will wear it for compression and to get rid of this lower back swelling.

I removed my roll pillow as I was told by one of my bbl sisters from my car seat... Then I felt so funny I put it right back at the next red light! I am use to driving with it and I felt slight discomfort without it, perhaps it's just mental. I will give it another try tomorrow.

Ok, so been speaking to the office spoke with Ruben and he told me Salama was in the office today but of course I got no call. I am a little bit annoyed about that. While I do know that the "doctor" is quite busy however if they say he will call he should call. It seems as the office is more responsive pre-surgery than post surgery. I have valid concerns and need to make decisions and arrangements and can't get in touch with the doctor. I am just annoyed at this moment.

Hello My BBL Sisters. I am curious as to why has...

Hello My BBL Sisters. I am curious as to why has had a revision and how was the recovery? Is it as long? Do all the initial rules still apply?

Hello My BBL family, Ok so I talked to the...

Hello My BBL family,

Ok so I talked to the doc! I can say this while all the folks at Elite are absolutely fabulous sometimes you just want to get the info from the horses mouth! So I spoke to him about my concerns and it has been said you can't base your results on anyone else's (although we hope for the same results, myself included). While we have the same desire in common for a larger butt, our bodies are vastly different. So I know I have said I can't do this again, but my desire to get more projection far out weighs anything else :-). Also revision is not as rough as the actual procedure. So in 6 months I will consult with the doctor again to see where I am at. While I have said many times before I am happier than where I started, I just think that I am not quite at the finish line yet and want more projection and more just a wee little more hips if my body will allow... so with that being said I may be right back in Florida seeing my booty doctor in the new year... I need to lose this darn 10lbs I put on for this surgery first! Then figure out where he will get the additional fat from... grrrr. Those of you who had thigh lipo can you chime in and give any feed back. From what I have read most are not happy with that area being lipo'ed.

Healing. I think I am healing well, burning less in the lower back and back area. I am now sitting on my butt in the car but not happy about it, lol. I still think I am damaging my precious fat cells. I don't think I am going down any more at the same size since the last pics. My back swelling has gone down a good deal and I think I am still swollen in the tummy area. I give myself light massages every few days and it is still tingly. I still sleep on my sides but I always have and when I wake up on my back it doesn't feel strange. But when I turn from side to side I can feel my butt all in the way. It jiggles when I run which is super weird and it is uncomfortable... If I ran I would be in great discomfort with all those small pings of pain when that booty jiggles.

side note - doc asked me if I would be willing to gain a lil weight because some of the women that get the bbl butt's get bigger with weight gain... Ahhh Nope still trying to lose the 10lbs I put on going to get the surgery 20lbs overweight is not my idea of of anywhere I wanted to be before or after this process. He also said I can feel free to exercise! So treadmill hear I come!

So there you have it! Any other things I left out please feel free to ask.

Just an update about some of the crazy fans on...

Just an update about some of the crazy fans on here. No ones body is perfect. We are all on here to make improvements. Thank goodness I can afford to do what I want. And this site is for support not discouragement. So if I block you for stalking me please don't be upset and make a new profile just to tell me I need more work. We can all tweak this or that but it will be challenging to fix psychosis... That's real talk! I send you light..

To all my sane sisters happy healing and beware of the cybor stalkers............

Hello to all my bbl sisters. Its been a while but...

Hello to all my bbl sisters. Its been a while but I'm still here. I have removed my pics because of the lack if option for ME to control how long I want to put them up. Until real self changes that option no photos.

Anyhow I am 5 months post op all is great except my butt has been a bit tender when I lay on it I suspect because I have gained a few lbs and it's my precious fat cells growing yaaaaaa. My tummy is flat and my waist is small thank you Salama!!! My butt still needs some projection. I will go back for revision this summer when I get back in the country. I'm still super happy I did this and yes I am going back for round two!

Wishing you all well........

Hello My BBL Sisters. It's been a while since my...

Hello My BBL Sisters. It's been a while since my last update, but not too much has happened. I think my body settled into what it is now at 8 months and I am still waiting for Salama to get back to me after 3 weeks of waiting. I get a non-descript response from Ruben stating they are in receipt of my email after 2 weeks of waiting then asking for pictures which I sent while I was on vacation and still no damn response from the doctor. I can say up until now the customer service has been great but it seems as though once you pay and you are on the other side and awaiting revision lets just say customer service is just NOT the same. He is just far too busy! So right now I am annoyed by the lack of customer service and the way in which I am now being treated.

My results: I am happier than I was before surgery. Do I want to get a revision yes! I never did get the projection that I expected. I spoke with Salama in October and he promised we would speak in December to see where I was at and now in March I can't get in touch with the man. So now I am just waiting to hear from them.

I wish you all the best. Do I still recommend this doctor? Yes, he is good but super busy and I am not even sure he is getting all of his messages!

Ok ladies I have added my photos again for a while...

Ok ladies I have added my photos again for a while. Many have asked and we all want to see before and after so I will share again for a time.

I am 8 months post op and rolling onto 9 months. What people want to really know... was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY FREAKING LUTELY! Would I do it again 100 times over. What I have realized or failed to realize while walking around with my new body is that there is a change. I just feel like this is the me that I have always should have been and I forget what my body looked like before (yucky). Now I love the new me. Is it perfect no. Do I want changes? yes! Will I go back for revision? Yes. Do I expect perfection? NO. I expect to just tweek this and that and just make the new me better. Now today as I look at my before pics I am like damn what a difference. I have that jiggle that I have NEVER had. If I shack left to right my but is just like a milk shake, lol. All my old clothes still fit just my waist is insane and small. I wonder where he will find extra fat to get me just a little more projection. I want to go back this summer his schedule and mine providing. I am realistic and optimistic I don't want a big ole "donkey booty" just a butt that will fit my frame and size.

I will take more pics soon once I find them or take them later or in a few days. Any questions feel free to ask!

Oh I almost forgot. I have gained about 10 pounds...

Oh I almost forgot. I have gained about 10 pounds or so since surgery and the first place that gets bigger is.... the butt you guessed it! That is not a bad problem to have :-). Everything feels like back to normal. No shooting pains that feels like needles in the night. My nerves are all settled. My tummy is fine except where the incision is it feels a little funny when I touch that area. When I run or jog my butt jiggles and I am always weirded out in a good way about that. Can't think of anything else.

All I can say to my sisters that have taken this journey before me, thank you for sharing. For my sisters that have/are taking this journey with me thank you for supporting. For my sisters deciding/waiting/wanting to take this journey you will be supported.

All the best to all of you. And even though I may not post often I am still here just in the shadows!

BBL with Mini Tummy Tuck Still rocking with Salama 22 months Post Op!

Hello All,

I know its been some time. But once the procedure date gets further behind you life does go on. I am happy with my procedure just need to tweak it a little but since I live out of the country I need to find time to get the work done.

I gained some weight and the weight went to my butt and my boobs (which are already too big) but the but is now jiggly, which is a plus. I can shake what I was never able to shake before (lol) and my waist is small all my pants still have a gap (nice problem to have). I was at work the other day and I said to a co-worker I needed to find a tailor to fix my waistline in my pants and her reply was... why because you have a big butt? I just smiled inside since not a sole knows but you guys my butt is thanks to Salama :D. Life is good and wishing you all well in your journeys. I am uploading pics right after I post.

22 months Post of Still Salama!!

Attached are pics. I look bigger in real life. Somehow I look so much smaller in pics.

Still Team Salama 22 months Post Op!

Hello my BBL Sisters,

I just found a pic to show the difference. Some of the nay sayers think the booties go away after 2 years, I am not at 2 years yet... But I will be in 2 months. I am just here to represent those that have done the surgery and we are 2years out plus the results do not go away! Actually my butt got a little bit bigger but I did gain weight.

It's kind of hard coming back after so long to write a review because as it's been said life does go on and your new booty becomes a part of the old you. I almost forgot I was a no booty girl once before, or I just don't want to remember. lol.

I am here to support you though. I actually went back on my feelings of getting revision, not getting revision and sometimes I still do. I am glad I do not live in Miami or I would have done it a long time ago, so fortunately time and space just don't allow for me to do it.

Now I am trying to think of what I would want to ask someone when I had NO booty or when I just got my booty?... What does it feel like? Regular just feels like me. Does it jiggle? YES, YES it jiggles, because it's fat and that is what fat does. Can I twerk? Yes, I can twerk but only in the mirror when I am all alone and I just giggle to myself girl you really have a booty. I love it! Does it jiggle when I run? YUP! Initially it hurt when I ran I guess it wasn't all settled yet around the 6 month mark it was kinda achey and I didnt' run, but now I run and it is just jiggling all over the place. My waist is small but good problem to have, which I said before and my butt fits things that my waist can not. I look great in a dress, skirt and slacks for work. It's really all good. I support anyone that feels like this is the way to go to do it. But surgery is not for everyone, and each body/booty is different. We all will not have the same results. Hell some of your wish pics were once my own. Now I see some of the chicks I went through with up as wish pics. I chuckled when a girl used my pic as a wish pic. Actually I was offended/violated--then weirdly ok/not ok with it, crazy I know but so is the whole process. I wish you all well on your journey.

BBL Revision maybe depending on the price.

Hello Ladies,

So if you have followed my story I have wanted a revision since my results finally settled in. So I possibly have a date but the price is almost full price of what my initial surgery was to begin with??? Now I know personally this has NOT been the case with previous revised clients so I am wondering why I would have to pay minus $200 off full price?? So I am now waiting for the office to get back to me with a price. This is quite frustrating. Also there is a new girl answering the phone and it seems you must be interrogated before she transfers you to anyone also why does she need to look you up in the system to simply talk to Nancy. So very very annoying. I use to love Nomie she was sweet and kind this evelyn is very snappy and rude. I always use to be in awe of Salama's staff and how incredibly awesome they are, but the new girl not so much. So now I wait fingers crossed.

Looking for a nice condo close to Salama

Hello My BBL Sisters,

As you know I have been down this road and going back down the road again with Salama. I will be getting my revision and I have paid my deposit and my date is in June. I am hoping Salama will work his magic on me again (even though he says he's not a magician) and this time my body will get it right!

I am excited and a tiny bit nervous just because it's surgery. No one knows. All my family knows the 2 I've decided to tell my brother (coming with me to surgery and mom) that I am getting my lipo revision. lol. Then when they ask why you don't sit I always just say NOOO my back hurts. LOL the lies we tell.

Anywho I am looking for a condo for like 10 or 11 nights. Or a hotel room with a separate bedroom. My brother snores like a bear and I can't do surgery and his snoring...lol. So since I am going for round 2 I will be on here for a while. LETS GO!

Still rocking with Team Salama!!!!!

7 Weeks and some days to go for my BBL Round @ with #TEAMSALAMA still looking for hotel or condo?

Hey BBL Sisters,

I have about 7 weeks left and still looking for a reasonably priced hotel/condo. I will be staying 10 days for surgery and after. So need a place priced right. Nothing new happening just waiting for my date and catching up on all the Salama BBL's. It reminds me of when I started my journey after coming back from DR 2 years ago. I went there on vacay and I was like I need to get my damn body together! Not to pre-baby/body weight, but to the body my mind said I was supposed to be rocking with. So it's funny you go back and forth and finally you make a decision. I am happy with my decision for round 2. Then next year Breast lift/reduction or just lift not sure yet.

Anywho, I will be in Miami 2nd week of June, who's going to be there then and where will you stay?

BBL Round 2 Still looking for lodging in Miami

Hey My BBL Sisters,

Where is everyone staying? My first time around girls spoke about hotels extensively and this time around almost 2 years later I am having a hard time finding a good and affordable place. Or people are not posting exact info on their condo's or hotels :-( So everyday I am hunting. I have found a couple of places but I am torn between staying close to the beach or closer to my doctor... Tough choice. Help!! I am looking for a place either near Aventura, Hallendale or Sunny Isles.

23 Months and going in for Round 2 w/Salama and still looking for a place to stay June 2014

Hey My BBL Sisters,

Well it's 23 months post op and nothing much has changed since 22 months... Well except I am trying to put on some weight so he can have enough fat to make my booty nice and plump! It is nice to see some of the girls I went through with on here or coming back for some revision. Back then it was Salama all day darn near every post. Yes, I have seen where some girls were burned but even with all that I just don't want to go to anyone else. I am not going to go to another country and risk dying over some cakes! We all choose the best doctor for us and for me it is Moises Salama. I am putting my faith back in him and hoping to get the body I want. Then next year gonna do a breast lift.. if all goes well this year lol.

So as I said nothing's new just checking out your reviews and revisiting the first time around and how it was. I am hoping like heck the second time around is as easy breezy as my 2nd round sisters make it seem :-).

Still trying to figure out where the hell to stay! ugh!

Ok so by for now next month will be my time about 6 weeks left to the 2nd transformation. lol

Oh and as I read over my previous posts I see all the typos. I promise I have a brain, it's just typing and drug don't mix. Can't type straight when on antibiotics or pain meds it all looks good. lol

Chat soon.

23 months post op BBL with Salama

Sorry this pic didn't post. Darn site..

Does Good Customer Service Matter anymore???

Ok ladies a quick update to hear what your thoughts are. Maybe I am just tripping or maybe not! I call Dr. Salama's office and you can not go a step further without giving the receptionist your FULL NAME and the reason for your call when I specifically asked to speak to Nancy. This is clearly NOT a personal call. She then tells me she can't transfer me with out my full name and the reason for my call.. So since when do I have to divulge all of my private/confidential information to speak to someone in my doctors office???? I went to this doctor 2 years ago why? Because of how sweet Nancy was and Nomie was to me. Now apparently you can NOT get through to them because you can't talk to them you must talk to why they tell you to talk to.

I would imagine with all the back drama and burn drama they would be more receptive to patients... Perhaps this is a sign?...

I would like to know what your thoughts on the matter are?

Thank you my BBL Sisters.

Dr. Salama's office Fails at customer service.

Hello My BBL Sisters,

So just an update and a close out on this doctor. So Ruben calls me and tells me we are basically NOT a match. I guess they don't like when people express their own opinions. So he decided that Salama would NOT work with me and my appointment was cancelled. Apparently the receptionist told him I hung up on her. So I am calling you for information and I hang up on you??? What type of sense does that make? Ah none! Then he said well I just don't feel expectations are being met on either side. I say Ruben I have called 2 times??? I am on Magic jack calling from across the world?? Anyway life goes on.

So what do I take away:
Salama's office now has an established business so customer service is obviously lacking. Ruben attempted to tell me Nancy was out of town.. Oh so none of her emails will be answered? Right. Salama IS over booking and handing off some of his patients to his partner doctor and customer service is falling to the wayside. Perhaps if he didn't over work himself and over book he could figure out why these women are being maimed! I digress...

I will be having my procedure with another doctor. Honestly I have not been feeling comfortable since Salama has been having all these complications aka burns aka skin necrosis. So this is all for the best. As the saying goes "One Monkey don't stop no show!"

I wish you all well and happy healing!

He's was good first round but you quickly realize his practice is all about the money!
