Like some of you, I am a long-time lurker of realself. I've spent numerous hours on the website scouring reviews and photos; trying to decide between doctors, and searching for any information that might aid me in my decision on surgery. Well, after what seems like a lifetime of contemplation and indecisiveness, I've finally decided to go through with my decision! My surgery is currently scheduled with the famous (or perhaps, "infamous", depending on who you ask), Dr. Hector Cabral. Yes, I'm aware of his dubious past; and yes, I understand this is quite a risky endeavor--made even riskier due to the location of the surgery and the number of procedures involved. (I will be getting a bbl, full body lipo, neck/chin lipo, and rhinoplasty). I will admit that I am scared s**tless, anxious, and at times, overwhelmed. Even after doing copious amounts of research, I'm still not entirely confident that I know what I'm getting myself into. I will be traveling alone, and, unfortunately, without the support of family and friends. However, this is something that I've wanted for a very long time, and I feel like now is the time to do it.

Oh, and I can't forget my stats! I'm 5'1", currently 135 lbs, and my measurements are 35-29-38. I've gained at least 10 pounds for the surgery (of course, none of it has gone to my butt!), but it honestly still doesn't seem like much for the type of results I'm seeking. I'm hoping for that exaggerated, jaw-dropping, video vixen look. Although, I have to prepare myself that I may have to go for a second round. I've uploaded some wish pics. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all.

Surgery Postponed

So, I was initially supposed to have my surgery back on July 12th, then postponed it until July 28th. Now, it's been postponed...indefinitely. Well, I am at least looking to have it later this year, sometime in November or December.

I figured I have waited this long to have the surgery(ies), I can wait a few more months. Plus, my PCP found a large uterine fibroid that I will most likely need to get removed before I can proceed with any elective surgeries. Additionally, delaying the surgery will allow me to truly decide on the right surgeon (I currently have my heart set on Cabral, but knowing me, I could and will change my mind again). Furthermore, by postponing my surgery until later this year, I can save up even more money for the additional procedures I want (considering getting breast augmentation and veneers), as well as work on gaining some more (albeit, healthy) weight.

We'll see how things play out. Stay tuned...
Dr. Hector Cabral
