I'll post some wish and before pics soon...
Before Pics&pre surgery decisions
I have a lot of wish pics in my phone I have gathered over time. But more importantly I took some before pics today. I felt like my pics don't look as fat as the ones I sent to dr Hughes last month. He said I don't need to gain weight but I'm trying to gain at least 5 more lbs in the next few weeks. I want to have plenty of fat I don't want to spend tons of money for minimal result. Although I don't want a huge butt I want a very perfect specific shape. I'm thinking I really still want to do my arms even though I'll be crippled I want to be petite. more Lipo=more $ :-/ ...I will continue to post pics. I hate how so many people on real self don't post enough photos. And that's the good stuff we obviously want to see. I struggled finding before and after photos of girls my age or body type with no kids. so, I plan to post plenty along the way :)
Less than 2 weeks until Surgery!
I'm going to LA early to get situated in the condo I'm subleasing and for my pre-op with dr Hughes. I actually smoke medical marijuana daily and Dr. Hughes advised me to stop smoking 1 week before surgery and for 6 weeks after. This won't be easy for me especially because it is going to effect my appetite, anxiety, and sleep patterns but i will be fine. I'm very strong and self disciplined, it will all be worth it.
Dr. Hughes office advised me I don't need anything but myself and a boppy pillow :) they provide everything else. I was told I may need to buy a smaller size garmet than the one they initially provide because I will be shrinking :) There will be a few more things I'm going to buy for comfort.
I don't know if you have heard of Do Terra but it's a manufacturer or essential oils. I'm very into homeopathic remedies. Pain pills and surgery will have me very nauseas (I know from previous breast aug) so in order to manage pain, promote healing, bruising, appetite, and even lighten my mood there's a do terra oil for everything! A lot of stuff on Pinterest! I will post pics when I have my care package all together. Feel free to ask me about it if you're interested.
It's almost that time :)
I decided yesterday I officially want to lipo my arms. I want everything to be lean but my booty. I'm assuming my arms will be the same if not worse than how useless they were after my breast augmentation. I might as well do the whole enchilada I know I'm going to be crippled :)
I've been searching a lot of wish photos I may post a few. I also took a couple more before pics.
Surgery reschedule June 17, 2015
I'm super confident with my gut instinct in choosing the bbl king Dr. Hughes. I sent him and email and he said he doesn't know exactly how many CC. Probably because he's can see pics but doesn't know my anatomy till he's in there. He doesn't want to promise anything he can't deliver. He did promised to get all the fat he can and transfer it all since I'm not fat.
I've been trying to gain but my weight has been stagnant at 142.8 for like almost a year I think. (I'm holding the weight pretty well) He also told me to to avoid hot yoga prior to Sx. I can't wait I was disappointed to push my date back 1 week but something came up with my work and I want my schedule totally clear after surgery.
I feel like all my fat is going to my titties I'm so over being squishy I can't wait to be tiny sick looking waist and a bubble butt with S curve perfection.
Day 2 :)
They sent me home in a garment way too small so doc said to take it off and I'm on my way to dr Hughes now to get a garment in the right size. I don't know why they would send me home in a garment that barely zipped or buckled closed knowing I was going to swell?
For the record I love dr Hughes he's super cool funny smart confident and obv the bbl king. ...but I sincerely dislike Lorraina who did my consult and stuff . For multiple reasons she has no tact is not personable at all. She also seems uneducated. And clearly needs some work done lol. I sound like a mean girl but honestly I bit my tongue I could've ran circles around her but I kept quiet. I just don't like when someone does something for a living and I think I could do it much better. Her vibe was WAY off
Anyways enough about her b4 I start calling names. Let's just say I wouldn't wish her upon anybody. I'm going to ask how many CC and get back to you guys with pics and more details about the day of surgery and behind the scenes. Xo
This is my day 3/4 review I didn't post
I'm bored reading on realself in shock of how a lot of these ladies are so eager for different ways to sit on their booty within the first week! That's absolutely not an option for me! Dr Hughes told me to stay off of the fat. I'd rather be miserable on my stomach, lucky for me I sleep well on my stomach but standing up is much more comfortable for me. I've been walking in circles very restless. I took a shower yesterday which felt great and I slept amazing afterwards. I also had 2 bm but I had to take stool softener.
All these dressings are driving me insane considering I did lipo to my full abdomen, flanks, back, arms, inner thigh, and chin. I swear dr Hughes managed to get into my armpit area and everywhere he could for fat. I was shocked to find out he went through my belly button but he said it was critical for another 200cc of pure fat. He did an amazing job. The strap they gave me to wear around my chin is most irritating because it's rubbing my ears wrong and they want it tight.
I had a big battle between myself and the binder because Olga said she wanted it low I was worried about it pushing down on the top of my butt. It took forever to get it on right I was kind of being a perfectionist about it. I weighed myself and in shock that I'm not even 145lbs and I was 142 before surgery! Everyone says they retain so many lbs of fluid. Olga said I would keep swelling up and I def have a little bit but I have my fingers crossed that I don't swell much more. I swear I can feel myself already shrinking in this size medium garment.
The binder is soo uncomfortable but it's more uncomfortable when I take it off because my abdomen doesn't even feel attached to my body it feels loose! It doesn't help that I'm kind of claustrophobic so I've woken up at night freaking out and it's hard to breathe in so many layer of tight binder and garment! I just wanted to take a big deep breath! I'm following dr Hughes orders though wear the binder 24/7 aside from when showering.
I already love my new body and can't wait to heal and enjoy. The lipo to arms wasn't as bad as I thought. I didn't care that there wasn't much fat to donate to my booty I just didn't want to look like I could fly away after surgery and have everything else be thin. Only thing I'm wishing for is for my thighs to slim down more :/ I've been trying to eat healthy balanced low sodium protein packed meals as much as possible because I'm paranoid about my body eating the fat from my butt. It's hard being that the binder is squishing my stomach so small like a waist trainer or worse. Ugh it's all going to be soo worth it. I know a lot of girls who regretted not wearing their garments and things as instructed as I think it really effects your results.
Let me just start by Saying Dr. Hughes really DID THAT. He transformed by body. I was a somewhat thinner girl and he went to all lengths to get all the fat he could for my bbl. He not only gave me the bubble butt I asked for but was honest about expectations and goals AND my incisions are already invisible 3 weeks later. Let's just say his work is precise and he is a master of his craft. The true bbl king of the west coast. And the most easing part in such a nervous journey is there was never a time day or night I couldn't get ahold of him unless he was in surgery! Like I do not know when this guy eats or sleeps...or exercises! (He's very buff& in shape) This guy really has an eye for the job and I'm so happy I trusted him. He truly sculpted my body to make me the best version of me :) I'm soooo glad I didn't go with another surgeon because they would not have delivered the same result most likely hundreds of less CC per cheek. Dr Hughes strives to do 1 round of bbl unlike other Drs. He gets it right the first time!
