I have been combing the internet and this website...
I have been combing the internet and this website to get information on the possible complications, if any, of doing a BBL when you have fibroids. I have pretty large fibroids and I have two fears. One that somehow, even though it seems silly, that during the BBL and because of my unusually large uterus something with go wrong and that when I lipo my tummy that the fibroids would be more visible. My tummy is already bigger, not extremely so, because of this.
Does anyone have any information about this? Or knows any realself.com profiler that has my same conditions.
Thanks in advance guys.
I am putting things in perspective. For those who...
I am putting things in perspective. For those who are reading my posts for the first time I have the unique condition of having fibroids and wanting to do a BBL. I recently came across a post on this site that addressed my issue by SamCurves98 and based on two doctors responses it is best to have them removed (Myomectomy), recover and then have the BBL.
"You're right! If you have very large fibroids, they make your abdomen look fuller. By removing them, your waist may look even smaller (depending on how large your fibroids are). Thereby, making your results that much better. If fibroid surgery is performed by an open approach, you may have to wait a few months before BBL, find out how your GYN will perform this and then talk to your plastic surgeon." Dr. Dennis Dass a Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon.
So I am taking my time and getting the best medical opinion I can on my situation. I will have the BBL done but not just yet.

My 35 birthday is approaching in March 2014 and if nothing else I am sure that I will be doing this procedure around that time. It is my birthday gift to myself. I am sending off for a quote from Dr. Duran as I feel she would give me the silhouette and projection that I want. The removal of my fibroids would occur after I have completely healed/recovered from my BBL. Keep me in your prayers.

I have not heard back from Dr. Duran as yet. I am thinking about Dr. Robles. She seems to be a great doctor (based on most reviews, only ready one negative so far). I am concerned about women waking up during surgery with Dr. Duran. I am hoping to make a decision soon as to which doctor to go with.

I finally heard from Dr. Duran today and I must say her level of professionalism really is leading me towards going with her. As you guys know I have fibroids and straight away from my pictures she said that it appeared that "I was suffering from high pressure in my stomach"...WOW! She recommended that I take care of the fibroids first and contact her when that's done. She said not to worry that she would remember me. LOL...Gracias Doctor Duran.

Going to loose some weight with Nina Detox
16 Oct 2013
10 months pre
I have been telling my friends that I do not want to loose any weight because I want every ounce of fat to go into my butt and hips but three (3) doctors in Dr has instructed me to loose at least 25lbs. So that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to be trying Nina Detox after the positive reviews I've read about that system...starting November....
Contreras for BBL, BA with Implants, Vaginoplasty and Possible Rhinoplasty????????????
I have been researching Dr. Contreras. Kinda thinking about him as a possiblity because he is like a one-stop-shop and I am considering rhinoplasty and vaginoplasty. He already sent me a quote. I really need some guidance from anyone who would have gone to him. I need to join the facebook groups I've been hearing about...
Call me sponge bob square pants...so sad!!!
Today I did my measurements. I realized I haven't done them yet. Here they are:
Bust: 36 (D cup-Left Breast/ Ccup-Right) thank God for padded bras
Can you imagine the horror? (In my dramatic voice) I am so happy that this surgery is a possibility. I really want dramatic results. Is it possible to go to 49" post-op for my Hips+Butt? The widest hip and most projection I've seen is 44"...
I will not be doing my BA in the DR because I realize they mainly insert implants via the Periareolar incision and since I want to breast feed and decrease my chances of nipple insensitivity I want to opt for a doctor who has more experience with other incision techniques. Also I want to go large...like porn star large not Guiness Book of World Records' large though. I think Dr. Pousti in San Diego is my guy for my breast augmentation...
Decision Made Dr. Cynthia Disla it is...
I have been in communication and I believe the best choice of doctors for me is Dr. Cynthia Disla (point blank period...lol) As with a lot of you ladies I have been going back and forth. I first started looking at Dr. Yily, then Dr. Almonte, Dr. Baez and my last two serious contenders were Dr. Duran and Dr. Cabral. I even considered Dr. Contreras but that was short lived after reading a recent review. I came across Dr. Disla and although I was not initially sold when I did more research, read reviews, saw more of her work and spoke to her I felt that this was it. I will be having a Tummy Tuck with Muscle Repair, Liposculpture and BBL and Breast Lift with Implants. I want an exaggerated (look at me look...lol) and she has assured me that she can achieve that for me and I believe her. So my girlfriend and I are hoping to go to her in October and I will be updating you as I go along.
I was been diagnosed with fibroids back in 2004 they were not huge nor bothersome so I left them alone. Well that has changed...overtime they have become increasingly large and affected not only my physical shape but menstrual cycle and pregnancies. I am a scardicat so I have been running away from surgically removing them but now I am going to 'man-up' and do what is necessary. So in June I am scheduled to have my myomectomy...my mantra is "what one woman can do I can do". So for all you fearless women who endure this procedure I will be following in your footsteps and with God's help all will be well.
I had my myomectomy last Thursday and I am recovering well. I am in minimal discomfort. Today I was telling my sister that honestly I do not feel like I had major surgery 1 week ago but God has been so good and it is through prayer, a positive attitude and the "Make me Heal" Pre and Post Op. Program that I feel somewhat normal. I am taking it extremely easy but I have been walking and am somewhat back to my old schedule. Thanks be to God from whom all blessings flow. I am focused on my recovery then toning my body with diet and exercise and ultimately my BBL.
I am continuing to focus on getting my mind and body right for my surgery. I am still taking care of some issues post-myomectomy (just follow-up stuff) and looking forward to getting my braces done next month. After going back and forth as to which DR doctor to go to I have decided on Dr. Tania Medina. Going to send my deposit by the end of the week and secure an August 4th surgery date (my Mom's birthday).

So Dr. Plazas' office got back to me "Hello;
Dr plazas avaliated your pictures and he said that you need laser liposculpture, tummy tuck and fat transfer
Quote for that surgery is 4800 dollars. Include everything exept hospitalization which is around 90 dollars and lodging"
What I am confused about is what is "everything". To me the information was lacking detail. I much prefer Dr. Henao's quote and frankly feel more comfortable with him
So many changes

Well it seems that although I have been researching/planning this for so long that getting my braces was a catalyst for so many things. First, I am not going to the Dominican Republic, nay, I am not even going to Colombia...I am on my way to Venezuela!!!. On August 9th, 2015 my girlfriend and I and one of her friends leave for Maturin, Venezuela to see Dr. Armando J. Suarez A. I am so looking forward to it. My girfriend's friend has already had breast augmentation with him and sings his praises so, although not my first, second or third choice I am going with him.
