I'm going to do a quick review here about my experience with my BBL. Before surgery I was 5'7 and about 172 pounds after gaining a bit for surgery. I'm usually fairly lean and I'm a huge fitness addict so it was very hard for me to stop working out (weight lifting 5-6x a week with a little cardio) and gain the weight! I used to be 215 pounds so going from that to about 145-150, then gaining weight again for this surgery was a total mind game but definitely worth it!! We did liposuction of the flanks, abdomen and back and I had to sign a consent to maybe do thighs while I was under anesthesia if it was needed (came out of surgery with my thighs lipoed as well). I've had a breast augmentation done before and let me tell you... This surgery is SO much more painful and difficult. The pain is different and not comparable to the augmentation, however. Dr Hazani was able to get 1320 CCs in each cheek which I was very happy about! I wanted at least 1000 ccs in each and I'm beyond excited he was able to achieve this. I told him I didn't want big hips, just a little bit of shape to them with majority of the fat on my butt to get that projection and shelf and he did exactly that! I'm extremely swollen right now but I already love my new body and I can't wait to see the results once the swelling begins to subside! There are definitely many hard times during this recovery and I'm only about a day and a half out since having surgery... I've had a few thoughts like "why did I do this to myself" but I know it's worth it and this is exactly what I wanted to do! I'm still taking my norcos right now because the pain is pretty moderate but I will most likely switch to the extra strength Tylenol tomorrow or the next day. My post op is tomorrow and I will try to update about that as well, then I'm on my 6 hour drive back to Sacramento so I will definitely need those pain pills for that! I never planned on updating my experience on here... I mainly just used it to prepare myself for this surgery but as I'm laying here I decided why not share with you ladies about what I've gone through. :) I'll try to post my BEFORE pictures on this post and I'll do a separate one on what I look like right now with all the swelling after my surgery!
Here are my BEFORE and AFTER pictures
BEFORE pictures are after gaining the weight for the BBL surgery. AFTR pictures are 1-2 days after I had surgery. :)
