26 Years Old, 5'3, 130 Pounds, 2 Kids, Brazilian Butt Lift, mini tummy tuck, and Breast Augmentation - Ciudad Juarez, Mexico

I am having a Breast Augmentation and Brazilian...

I am having a Breast Augmentation and Brazilian Butt Lift this upcoming thursday June 19, 2014. I went to visit doctor Rafael Flores Castro and he made me feel at ease with over 35 years of experience and great references. He was very courteous and really took his time (over 2 hours) to explain everything in detail. We went over all the possible options for my body type and body frame and decided on 460cc high cohesive silicone which he said will give me a D (exactly what I am looking for). As far as for the brazilian butt lift, he examined my body and made recommendations for liposuction in the abdomen, back, flanks, and thighs. I am not looking for anything exaggerated for the BBL but something that gives me a nice form. I am very excited but nervous at the same time.

One day to go!

Tomorrow is my surgery and I am so nervous!!! I couldn't sleep last night. I decided to go to Mexico for my surgery because it is more affordable but when the time is coming near I wonder if this was the right decision. I was originally quoted $13,679.20 for both procedures here in the US but since I didn't have the money to go through with it and I didn't qualify for a loan I opted to go somewhere else. The doctor I chose has such great references, has a lot of experience, and is very nice but I am a mother of two little ones and I worry something could go wrong and they could lose me. My husband tells me to stop worrying that everything will be all right but I still can't shake this thoughts off my head. My husband and his family are very supportive but I have had to hide it from my side of the family since they are completely against it. I think having to hide it from them makes it that much more difficult and I just hope and pray everything works out for the best.

All done but recovery is painful!!!

I had surgery yesterday...we opted for breast augmentation ( switched to 410 cc high profile cohesive silicone), had a mini tummy tuck, liposuction of abdomen, back, flanks and thighs and transfer to buttocks (brazilian butt lift). I am glad everything went well but recovery is painful. After surgery it took a while for me to be able to wake up from the anesthesia, it was kind of weird because I could hear them talking but I just couldn't wake up no matter how hard I tried (approximately 30 min or more) and the surgery in total was about 6 hours long. I guess I never imagined just how painful it was going to be. I couldn't sleep last night even with the medication I was still in pain probably since ai was wrapped very tightly and I just couldn't stand the pression of my breasts being squeezed together. Today I was released and I could barely walk...the drains kind of bother me but ina hapoy note I am sure in 12 days i will feel and look much better just like the doctor said. I also had my first bandage change today and was cured, i have my next one scheduled either for tomorrow or Sunday depending on how much bleeding I have and if i soak my bandages. Hopefully time goes by fast and I can recover quickly!!!!

Husband super sweet kids are crazy!!!

Omg I forgot to mention my husband stayed with me during the night after surgery in the hospital Fatima and he has been super sweet and helpful. I truly love him but the kids are going crazy!!! Poor him they are driving him nuts ( he took two days off to be with me) and help me recover apart from the weekend and my sister and mother in law will help me for the next week or so. I am truly blessed to have them in my life!!!! Well I am going to rest now...hopefully I will feel better tomorrow......

Feeling better...

Ok so today is my 3 day post op and I am feeling so much better already. I am still all bandaged up since I went yesterday to get cured and get them changed but the pain is more tolerable. My right breast incision has been bothering me the most but they put extra padding underneath it yesterday to avoid it hurting me. The doctor's assistant recommended that I return in two days to have some of my drains removed and I can't wait. I have been having the best care possible with my husband and mother in law so sweet cooking delicious homemade meals and special juices to aid in my recovery. I am sleeping more during the day but still can't really sleep at night since I have been having nightmares must be my body reaction to everything or something. I didn't take pictures yesterday without the bandages since I wasn't feeling very well but I will take some next time. Take care girls......

Swollen and bruised

12 days post op...feeling great!!!

So I went yesterday to get my drains removed and I feel great!!!! My under breast incision discomfort is also very minor now. Today I tried a new faja I bought which is quite small and tight but I like the shape it gives me (size xm). I am still swollen and bruised but I am sure it will continue to get better. I am so happy about my results so far...they keep on getting better and better as each day goes by.

Some new pics!!!

I been very busy with school and my kids so I haven't been able to post but I feel great and I am healing very well. Last time I visited Dr. flores he said I am still swollen but that everything is looking great. I will try to post as often as I can. Take care girls!!!

Update

I am still happy ith my breast augmentation and Brazilian butt lift however I am truly unhappy with my mini tummy tuck. My advice to anyone who has had kids is to get a full tummy tuck since in my case I gained a couple of pounds a few months after surgey and the bottom part of my tummy looks contracted but the top part looks like a muffin top. I hate it! I wish I had known before getting a mini tummy tuck. I plan to go back ro get a full tummy tuck in the future.
