After years of research I've finally decided to go...

After years of research I've finally decided to go with Fatima Almonte!!! I'm very excited, I am 28 and I'll be getting a TT+ liposuction of full back, flanks and abdomen + bbl. Is anyone thinking about it? Are you post op, how was your recovery? Going to make a appointment with my doctor here at home soon to check my hemoglobin to see where I am. Feel free to msg me about whatever, in very excited!!! You only live once and you live with your body so be happy!

Finally have the courage

Well it's getting closer to time finally have the courage to post pictures and get deeper into my journey. I was awake but I was comfortable with and then last year I got pregnant. I was pretty far along and my baby had no heartbeat. Obviously it was heartbreaking and very depressing to say the least. I've been trying to get the baby weight off but it seems to not go anywhere. So it's imperative for me to have this surgery because the weight is a constant reminder of my loss pregnancy. On a lighter note I am very excited and extra nervous as the weeks are coming. Anyone else have a date coming soon? Here are some pictures before pics...

Things I have

I've already had my passport for a while now. I'm just nervous about getting the tourist card, traveling alone and under or over packing. Although I haven't done much shopping for the trip yet I just get butterflies thinking about it. I found myself going back on YouTube and we watching some people I follow Journey just to give me some comfort. The fact that most of them stayed in the Rh I will be in, while it's comforting I'm still hella nervous... I'm also very fortunate that my OBGYN used to perform the BBL surgery although he doesn't do it anymore I'm very comfortable with him doing my aftercare. So he's all on top of helping me and making sure my hemo is up even advise me not to go to the DR. I assured him although this is my first round I am no newbie and I am aware of the horror stories due to all my extensive research. Although dr. Fatima Almonte was not my first choice she became my first choice, because I knew that if I was going alone that I have to be able to 1000? Trust my life in doctor's hands... Do any of you dolls love a Doctor's work but have reservations due to the reputation? ?????

Hemo is popping

Checked my hemo for the 3rd time I'm happy with it now have to keep it up...

Almost time

Oh boy nail biting

Prayer positivty and pain pills

Changed Rh

Well inatailly I chose myhomerh and I was informed by Lesley that my my quote included sx, Rh, transportation ext... OK so a sx sister said did you book your rh??? We share the same doctor so I'm like don't they set it up for you once you book your sx??? So I took upon myself to call them and Dolls do you know I was not booked!!! My mind is racing, heart is racing I'm like you don't have any record of me?? The lady on the other end had broken English that I could only understand one or two words, I'm anxious she's getting irritated by all the I'm sorry can you repeat that. In her defense whenever I get my nails done they hate me to because I hardly ever understand. So if that hasn't already shocked me enough she goes on further to say I'll send you all the details, you also need to go and PAY $100.00 to secure. Once you do that theirs ALSO $100.00 FEE for transportation. WTF... Dolls when I received her email it had the cost per night for stay at the Rh, not to mention I heard you have to pay for washing anything other than your faja... Now I'm taking away from all the exceptional reviews I've seen, heard and read and the great care that the patient recieves. Long story short I switched to new life I'm trying to save every penny I can...


The death of my old body and the birth of my new I'm going to have change my birthday to 1/19/ can't wait to live live life care and roll free lol

Hi everyone

Recovery was not the easiest for me I went through several trials and tribulations. This journey continues to be hard for me but I stay positive because it could be worst.
So let's start with the nitty gritty lol the Rh (new life) I personally did not enjoy some didn't mind it but they tried there best to take of me b but they are lazy and if it's alot going on you can see the attitudes. Not the most sanitary bathroom if you don't get one in your own room. When you wipe your butt after a BM they want to put it I. The trash which I think is gross, but to each is own. I expected to see Almonte they day I got there when I did my labs and stuff but I didn't. Which I wish I had because on the morning of surgery she came in to meet me and go over things, I was filled with every other emotions and thoughts that I fill I did not get to say all what I wanted. After surgery apparently my stomach folded up inside my faja which caused a burn which has been happening frequently from other dolls I spoke with. She put me in a bigger faja and made me open it at night closed in the day. First night in clinic was great food was good I was good chilling.... Then I get to the RH..... Lol first thing I see stairs ???????? I claimed went to my room and never ate again for about 4 days. The food is just different I couldn't take it needless to say I was dehydrated and killing myself. They put me on a IV for three days and an iron drip that I had to pay for... So what is $150 for insurance for but whatever. Rewind I for got to mention I started my period a day or two before my surgery and I was heavy. I said that to say this plan around your cycle because it droppedy hemo to 11.9 which was unable to get all of my lipo they had to do a manual count just for me to have surgery for an extra .01... I know right.... Fast forward I felt better after the IV and the food got better. Plane ride home, wheelchair service ext you definitely need a wheelchair I also thinks it's imperative to get first class on the way back. My plane ride was terrible I was freezing my body hurt my ass hurt and I was on a boppy pillow... If I wasn't on antibiotics I would of drank some whisky to warm up... I had to wear the drain home and I took it out myself with my boyfriend's help it wasn't bad. The problem is the night before I took it out it fluid came through the drain hole, wet my stitches and opened up my incision next to the drain hole. Talking about annoying and painful I now go to a wound specialist every week so it can start to heal. I definitely made it worse by doing to much to early. But I feel my butt is pretty much the same which I'm not tripping but I can't wait to enjoy my body without pain, swelling and a faja and that will be a while so I appreciate everyone's prayers, concerns and everything thank you.... Here's a little peek with no faja...????

A little booty for you

Still very swollen and very hard slow healing process but I'm making it
