Hi everyone, I had my consultation date a couple...

Hi everyone,

I had my consultation date a couple days ago when I got to meet Dr. Shifrin and I just wanted to talk about my experience.

First off, I get to the building and park in the garage, as there is no parking available on the street anywhere. I get into the office where I sign in and am told to take a seat. And when I mean take a seat I really mean take a seat. I was waiting for 3 hours till I was seen for my appointment! I was very patient but super pissed and it made me not even want to be there. Anyways, I put that aside and had my consult with him and it was really brief.

I just felt like it was a waiting game, and if you plan on consulting make sure you don't have to be anywhere after. This is a surgery I've been fixated on for a long time now and when I got the opportunity to set my date I did. I left after and ended up paying $40.00 for parking. Maybe I'm just being annoying about everything, but anyways I scheduled my date for my BBL with implants for June 2nd. Which is right around the corner! I'm really scared and I almost feel like I made a mistake. I have my preopp tomorrow morning and I don't know how to feel. My sister sent me this long message about how she thought it was a mistake. I just need some encouragement for anyone willing to give it right now! Thanks guys!


Hey guys!!! Surgery is in 3 days !! And I am super nervous and could use all the support I can right now. I am asking if anyone has any advice, recommendations, or tips on things that helped during recovery. I think I have my supplies ready for after surgery but I'm not sure. Also if anyone could help me out with info on the stage 2 gardment. Do I need it now? And what kind do I need? I've seen full body ones and waist trainer ones. Is there a one that is best? I'm scared that I won't be able to go out and get a stage 2 during my recovery, what do you think? Below are the supplies I have right now.Arnica tablets Arnica gel Thick pads Baby wipes P-EZ Bobby pillow Gateraide Gingerale Pineapple 2 maxi dresses

Come on Realself ladies! :/

I am now 2 weeks out after my surgery and I'd like to share my journey so far with all of you, but I'm extremely discouraged that I have had no comments or anyone supporting me on this site.
I really thought this site would help me through this but I've been pretty much on my own and it's been rough. :(
