Butt Implants a Yr Later After Losing All Fat from BBL - Beverly Hills, CA
I had BBL procedure in Aventura, Florida in Oct...
Day 1 after Butt Implants with Dr Stanton
I arrived in LA at 130pm and waited an hour for a shuttle to take me directly to Dr Stanton's office. A cab would have been at least $60-$65 while the shuttle was $25 plus tip $30.
During my pre-op, Dr Stanton measured my butt and strongly recommended 490ccs. I was shocked because I wanted no more than 400ccs because I was looking for a subtle change in my butt nothing dramatic. I expressed to Dr Stanton that I don’t want my butt too big because I am a woman of a certain age and don't need too much attention at this late stage in my life. He and Jasmine his nurse asst laughed and told me they have done pts much older than me and recently a 71 y-o who had 590ccs. I was adamant about not wanting the 490ccs but his explanation and a sketch he drew of what my butt will look like with a smaller implants I was sold on the 490ccs
Long story short, the morning of surgery I told Jasmin that I think I really want smaller and that I am concerned that 490ccs is too big for my body frame and skinny legs. Again she assured me to trust the doc and that pts who went against his recommendation they all come back wishing they had taken the doc's advice. Again I was sold on 490ccs but still in my heart thought my butt was going to be too huge.
While I was being prepped and marked, I whispered to stanton to go smaller. Yes, I am stubborn ladies. Anyway, Stanton said to at this point 'I can give you what you want but I guaranteed you that you are not going to be happy and will come back for a redo which will be another charge' He said the 490ccs will fill my butt area nicely and gives me a natural look than a smaller implants. However he would trim the implants once placed for a smaller look if he deems necessary.
Did I say, I'd make my story short? :-). Well I say all this to say that I am sooo happy I listened to Dr Stanton and gotten the 490ccs because I am loving it and yes, Dr Stanton was right, its the right size and all and I am happy so far.
The pain is tolerable but I have this sharp nerve pain in my calves so I walk funny. I am being held hostage to my hotel because I am alone and can't do much outside by myself. Thankfully I was smart enough to bring crackers, instant oatmeal, tea bags, tea, cereal, etc. I requested a microwave for m room so I am able to fix my instant meals. I went to a little food shop right outside the hotel and brought a large bottle of ginger ale and milk for my cereal. Oh yes, my room has a refrigerator so its all goood. I just wished I had someone to help me because I am having difficulty getting in and out of bed and bending to pick up anything that falls on the floor. Going alone for this procedure is doable but much better if you have someone to accompany you and assist you especially the first 2-3 days. Thankfully my pain is not bad and I am doing a lot better than my BBL post op.
Thanks for reading and all the best to those planning on getting this procedure done.
