Had my revision June 2nd - First BBL was 1/14/2016

Hello RS Ladies, it's been about a year since I...

Hello RS Ladies, it's been about a year since I have been on here. I had a Tummy Tuck with Dr. Francis Johns in Monroeville, PA. I was so pleased with my tummy results that I am now stalking the site again because I just scheduled a Brazillian Butt Lift. The big day is January 14th 2016. I'm wondering what the post op recovery instructions for a BBL are. I have a tone of questions, what things do I need to pick up as far as medical supplies, compression garments, boppy pillow? How do you go the bathroom, how do you sleep, and how much time should you take off of work? I'll post some pictures that I have of me now. My PS is saying I'll need about 800-900cc per butt cheek. He is going to do aggressive lipo on my torso (my back fat thank god) abdomen and flanks, inner and outer thighs. Right now I am 5ft 3in and about 170lbs. If anyone give me any helpful tips that would be great!

My PS told me not to lose any weight before my BBL.

Some before and after photos

Hi ladies. Today marks 10 days post op. Here are some before and after photos

My garment is already too easy to put on

Im now 12 days post op. The swelling keeps going down. When i put my garment on after the shower it went on too easy. Thinking i need to order a smaller size. Im having mixed emotions today wishing my butt was bigger. I understand your body changes over the next few months but i already feel like it's smaller. Im loving my new waist and really starting to see the curves but i hope and pray my booty holds its size

Foot swelling

My feet really started to swell this morning has anyone else experienced this? I'm still wearing my compression socks and keeping then elevated as much as i can

Tried on a few dresses today, i like what i see so far

Definitely a big difference how i look in clothes. Haven't really tried on much yet except a few dresses. I go back to work in 5 days. I hope i can find something to wear.

Flat on one side?

Ladies please help! I noticed this morning my right butt cheek looks flatter than the left side. Is this normal? I haven't sat yet, im wondering if this is part of the healing process. I hope i don't need a revision. Did anyone else experience this? Will it drop and round out? On another note, i go back to work in 2 days, the struggle is real lol i have a donk! Can't get any pants on but i like it.

Sitting at work

I finally started sitting at work on a boppy mainly on my thighs and only for 5 to 10 minutes a few times a day. Driving still sucks. I love how i can sit with no tummy fat showing and no back fat. I still have major swelling in my thighs and lower back especially after the end of the work day. Is anyone else extremely stiff when they wake up? Omg i can barely move!!! Seems to get better once I'm up an moving around. He are some pictures at work

1 month post op

Feeling better, still swollen but my waist is now 31inches it was 35 before surgery. I went shopping yesterday and pleased to say i now wear a size small shirt! Didn't buy any pants yet and still not wearing jeans or sleeping on my back. I don't sit at home at all my periodically at work. Here's some updated pix. My lower back is swell hell at the end of the day

Hi ladies i finally had my revision last night and couldn't be happier! My Dr. Added some more fat into each cheek and did a procedure called cellfina. cellfina is a procedure that cuts the fat bands to plump the skin and permanently reduce cellulite. My butt now looks so much fuller! Here are some updated pix

3 days post op revision im in love!

Little bruising and lower back pain but I'm in love. The revision is just what i wanted.

Alternative to sleeping on your tummy

This is a pic of the lounge chair i bought on amazon. I cut a hole in the seat for my butt so i can eat and sit up, watch tv or just lay on my back. Helps instead of always on your tummy

Greensburg Plastic Surgeon

I highly recommend Dr. John's for anyone in the Pittsburgh area, he's fantastic at what he does. My results were amazing and I just scheduled my 2nd surgery with him.
