I have been wanting to get a BBL w. Fat transfer...
I have been wanting to get a BBL w. Fat transfer for almost 4 years now. I did not have the means financially to do so but now that I do I am more than ready to get this done!
Unfortunetly what I thought would be the easiest part, choosing an MD, is becoming a nightmare.
I can't seem to choose a surgeon due to the different mixed reviews and because of low rating on reviews as well. I've done some research on my top picks: Dr. Jose Mora, Dr. A. H. Duran, Dr.Almanzar, Dr. Yily, and lastly, Dr. Cabral. They all have great before and after pictures but a few have negative reviews about post op care that really concerns me because I think post op care is one of the most important parts of the process.
Anyway, I need help figuring out what I should really be focusing on when choosing a Dr for this procedure and for those who have done the procedure- who do you recommend?
I Finally Have a Date for my BBL in D.R W. Doctor Jose Mora
I have finally made my surgery appointment for January 6th 2017. It feels like it is so far away. I have chosen to do my surgery with Dr. Jose Mora. He is not as popular as other PS, but I have seen his work and I think he will give me the 'natural' results that I want.
I cannot stop looking at pictures on Instagram or RealSelf of "wish pics" and even different "Barbies/Dolls". I am super excited, but also nervous. Does anyone have any helpful lists of things to bring or advice on how to prepare your body before the surgery?
Is it normal to have doubts ?
I feel in my gut that I have made the right decision with picking a doctor and a recovery house, but I can't help but think about the dangers of PS.
I have recently been binge watching Botched on E! And it is scary the things that happen to people after surgery. I guess I shouldn't be watching this show knowing I'm going to get a procedure done. Anyway, I am now more nervous that the day is getting closer and I'm not sure what I'm going to expect. There is no turning back now though, I have purchased my flight and given in my deposits.
Any ideas on how to cope with doubt and nervousness ?
Done and ... in pain lol
Disclaimer: this is my experience. Everyone is different.
I want to just say ... OUCH! I mean I read a lot of reviews where people stated it is painless just uncomfortable and sore-like, but f*** no. It hurts. Not in an unbearable way but it's difficult to move around, you feel like you were working out for 5 consecutive months and you feel crazy weak. I found it difficult to pee at first because I couldn't bend down. Walking was helpful to me because I didn't put pressure anywhere. Sitting down even in the booty pillow is difficult. Nonetheless I'm happy with my results so far. I haven't gotten any massages yet because it's only my first day post op. But I will be posting an update on how I feel moving forward to see how far I've come. Don't hesitate to ask any questions !!! Pictures coming soon !!
About One Month in...
Well, I have to say that I feel a heck of a lot better than when i last posted. Today is Feb. 13th 2017 and I had my surgery on January 6th 2017. Some time has gone by and I'm starting to notice a big difference in my results.
My butt size has decreases a whole bunch and it has only been about 1 month. Im praying and hoping that it does not shrink anymore because I do not want to go back for part 2 when I don't have much fat elsewhere to transfer to my butt. I thought that the way I looked a week after surgery was amazing and I would stay that way but definitely not. I'm not too picky considering I look better than I did before but if I can recommend something to someone getting surgery is to ask for more fat than you would want because the size will go down a lot afterward.
In 2 month I hope to come back and give a more positive review. I hope that my butt settles nicely were I want it to be and that it does not go down anymore than it has in size.
Pain is not a big deal anymore, i'm still very uncomfortable and there are times that I do experience pain but it is nothing compared to my first week after surgery.
