I've been doing my homework for 2 years now, and I've finally decided to improve the dimply and flat appearance of this butt. I have considered Miami doctors, but I've finally decided that Dr. Hughes in California is the best for me. I love the work he's done on the ladies here and on his site! Plus, I won't have to fly far, as I live in the next state.
That Girl Thinks She Needs a BBL

How to Make The Most of Your Pre and Post BBL Booty
New Boobs Needed
I got my labs back and they are A1 green light! I keep having these second thoughts, wondering if I'm doing the right thing. The worst is to have your teen daughter be so supportive while you're not telling her that one of your fears is... Well you all know what I'm thinking. I've only told her that I know my body is amazing just as it is and I fear I'll ruin it instead of making it better. She tells me how much I'll regret passing up the chance to change what I'm unhappy with, and to just do it. And I will.
I'm not going this to draw more attention to myself. I get plenty of that and more than I want. I'm doing this because I've always wanted a prettier rear view. I'm not going for much more in size, more than anything I'd like a shape and appearance change to round and smooth.
2 more weeks and I'll be transformed. How are your nerves? Are you close in time and biting your nails?

Infection on My New Booty, BBL Mystery
The area is one that I've been puzzling about because from minute 1, it's been the biggest hardest location on my butt. It's on the right cheek.
Now the opposite cheek is nearly fully softened except for the top shelf area, while the infected butt cheek is hard in the center and soft everywhere else including the shelf.
This bbl process is such a mystery. I don't think enough dolls share their less positive experiences on here. I intend to keep my RS sisters informed and thank you all for continually updating your progress ups and downs.
I've done everything by the docs instructions and cannot figure out why this is happening to me. I started the antibiotics, which is my second course because doc prescribed them post surgery for 7 days too.
I'm praying my butt heals and does not need draining (I'm not flying back to L.A. for drainage!) and that I don't lose volume or suffer fat death.
Pray for me sisters. I really wanna cry about this because there's not enough info here or on the web about this situation, but what little info I've found is not good!
Gonna Get My BBL Drained
My butt isn't as round in profile views as it was the first week, but it's definitely better than it was before. I just need to eat more. My appetite has been down since getting this red area. My stomach and back are healing smoothly and nicely. Inner thighs are still swollen and so are my arms. Thighs aren't as slim as usual yet and I like them thicker! Arms are slimmer than usual even though they are swollen. After surgery I was up 12 pounds of water weight. Now on day 19 I'm only 3 pounds up from normal.
I'm gonna be fine and this booty is only gonna get bigger and better after I'm done dealing with this red spot!
No Infection! BBL Mystery Solved
The Doc has never seen this before and asked me all kinds of questions bout my activities. He said all he could think would cause this trapped blood was trauma to the area. There was one other hard spot on tge other cheek that actually felt a bit painful without touching meanwhile the original red area was only painful if you touched it. Doc tapped into that other spot too and got about 20 cc of blood from it.
He asked about my supplements too, which I knew not to take vitamins E or fish oil, etc because they could cause bleeding, and on fact I never take that stuff though I know it's supposed to be good for you except before and after surgery. And I wasn't taking any herbals either, I never take any of that. I wasn't taking aspirin or ibuprofen either. Wasn't having sex, wasn't working out, was being just plain lazy, following all orders because I didn't go through this to end up with a bad bad a$$! All I want is a good bad a$$!
I did recall that during week one on about the 8th day, my friends daughter was playing with a tennis ball in he living room. The ball hit my butt and omg it hurt for about 20 mins. I don't recall which cheek, but now I bet it was the biggest bleeding one with the red area. I remember playing it off not saying a thing so as not to traumatize that beautiful 10 year old for accidentally hitting my new booty.
What about the other cheek though? It only had 20 ish cc's of blood. So Doc Hughes thinks I incurred this based on my own body at this stage. He told me if ever I plan on surgery in the future be sure and let that doc know. He said it doesn't mean it will happen again but it should be brought to attention. What else could the Doc conclude when I'm telling him I've been a model well behaved rule abiding patient?
Right now I'm feeling grand! All that poking hurt a bit, but I was in awe of Doc Hughes' and Sandra's expertise, professionalism, sense of humor, and warm personalities which put me at ease and made me confirmed again that I'm with the "A" team.
Best part besides discovering my butt ain't infected is that I didn't have to get it cut open and scarred up!
Thanks for your prayers and support sisters!! Our prayers were answered, my booyty is healthy and thriving! Im including side by side pics of day 5, day 17, and day 19. There really hasn't been much booyty shrinkage!
BBL and Melatonin Don't Go Together!!
Doctor Hughes kept asking me what supplements I'm taking. I finally realized I'd left one out - melatonin. To help me sleep, I've been taking 3 of the trader joes chewable peppermint melatonin pills per night since 1 week after my surgery, and up until the day before yesterday. Before telling Hughes this, I researched the supplement and discovered it can cause increased bleeding! So whatever I had done that caused injury in those 2 areas on my butt, well instead of bleeding a little and clotting normally, they bled and bled and bled! I told the doc bout the melatonin and he said stop taking it. Amazing how the very thing I used to get good sleep ended up robbing me of sleep once I'd injured my butt.
I still believe that I injured my butt by squeezing myself into that faja! It would hurt so badly in those 2 areas after I forced the garment over them. Mind you I did cut the butt area out but that didn't matter because it didn't prevent the garment from being difficult to get past my hips and big butt.
During my research I found that melatonin is one of many supplements that surgeons put on their do not take 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after list!
So ladies, no melatonin! I actually got the idea to use it from one of the RS posts I saw here before my surgery. I don't think it's a well known fact that it can cause increased bleeding because the way it's discussed online is do not take with blood thinners or it can cause increased bleeding. Well duh! Aspirin can cause increased bleeding and that bleeding can increase even more if you use blood thinners. So annoying how the internet info isn't specific enough.
I'm now officially afraid of melatonin. Keep in mind I took 3 pills per night when the bottle said to take 1. I had read on the internet you could take up to 5. So done with supplements!
I'm feeling fine now and in no pain after flying back to L.A. and having Doctor Hughes drain a ton of blood outta my butt cheek just like he did a week ago on the opposite cheek!
My New Butt is on Doc Hughes' Instagram
The Doc put me on his Instagram, and I remember thinking when I took that photo on the 3rd post surgical day that my butt was too big! Of course the booty greed is kicking in! But no worries, though I've lost some fullness and size, it's still improved over what I had and I know some if the loss is because my appetite has been terrible during this ordeal. I've lost weight and weigh only 145, but weeks before surgery I steadily weighed 148-150. I'll get some pounds back on these cakes.
Don't think I haven't been down about my situation. I have but I've kept it to myself and shared with a couple of you who've emailed or texted me. Thank you so much, all of you, even my sisters who've steadily posted and shared their ups and downs here. You get me through my darkest moments.
Not posting pics right now of the state of my cakes just yet as they are healing. The latest and biggest hematoma area is dark and hard, but the first area has lightened up and softened to nearly unnoticeable levels. I'm optimistic! Love you dolls!
Real Projection - No More Posing Needed
I'm finally healing. My butt seems stable in fat retention, shape, and size. I'm very pleased with it, even though that last hematoma left a lil dent. I may have Platelet Rich Plasma injections there, depending on what Hughes says. I've read that can rejuvenate the area and bring it new life.
I'm so happy that I don't have to pose anymore to get my butt to look shapely. Hughes is the man!
Doc Hughes and his staff are the "A" team. I can't express to you how choosy and particular and detail oriented I am. I am a friendly but tough customer and I joined and studied this RS site intending to find the West Coast doctor who could fulfill my expectations. Dr. Hughes is that expert this community and my research made me choose. He proved himself worthy of consideration from the start when I first emailed my photos and wish pics. He responded that same day within a couple of hours. We emailed back and forth about 15 times that Saturday, and then Sunday morning, as he promptly answered my questions. He told me my wish pics were achievable. I simply wanted to look better, more rounded, and totally natural. I love the ladies here who've gone in the bombshell direction, and have nothing but admiration for them going for what they want. Before my surgery I was in constant contact with Dr. Hughes via additional emails, which he still responded to promptly same day and often within minutes. He was truly committed to answering all my questions and keeping it real about what's possible. Fortunately the look I wanted was attainable. He told me that and set out to deliver, giving me the body I wanted but even better than I imagined it would be. All along this journey to my transformation, he made me confident in choosing him, and at ease about following through with my decision. I felt safe, cared for, and I knew that the doctor was excited to work on me, to give me what I wanted. After surgery care and attention is consistent with what I received before he was ever paid proving to me that he never stops working for his patient even after surgery day.
