So, my last post was completely SET on Ghurani, but if any of you ladies have been following the Ghurani threads you know that him and Vanity are completely FULL OF SHIT! Seriously...smdh. How can you run a business based on LIES and get away with it??? Anyway here's the scoop with that drama:
They took a deposit from me and promised me that that locked in Ghurani, and I could choose my date at a later time (bc I still wasn't sure on when). They agreed that it locked in my doc and price, bc literally the next day he went from charging $4500 to 9,000. DOUBLE. Then out of nowhere my patient coordinator just completely stopped contacting me at all, come to find out he quit, bc it was full of drama and deceit there, so he bounced. Anyway, now Ghurani is no longer doing BBL at all (unless he has flip flopped BACK to elite to work exclusively with Salama AGAIN, wtf knows at this point). They kept my deposit and instead of calling me like a normal, honest business would, I had to find out via RS and I called PISSED. They of course don't give you straight answers and put you on hold and pass you around for an hour. Finally I get a new patient coordinator that took over my case bc Abner left, and she is PUSHING Dr Fisher on me. I mean PUSHING. I'm like wtf would I trust you guys at all? Not only with my money, but with my life???? You can't even return a phone call for Christ's sake... Anyway, me and my girl Sculptmenow have decided to get our deposits back and move on. Girls, PLEASE get your deposits back and just go straight through your bank, credit card company, or Care credit, etc. My new coordinator said she would refund me but it will take 6 weeks. Bump that! It takes a minute. The real truth that I found out about Vanity is that they do NOT know how to manage their money. I found out from someone who worked there that they bounced a check to an employee bc they are so broke. So that is the real reason they are taking so long to refund deposits...bc they simply DON'T HAVE IT. They have already spent that money. It's a shame, and I wonder how long before they completely go bankrupt in general. I'm very bummed about this bc I did love Ghurani's work, was more comfortable with staying in the US, and the price was right, but everything happens for a reason. Not to mention I just found out that Ghurani was just sued by a girl bc he gave her a really bad infection and she won. So...maybe this was for the best.
Anyway, moving on....now the search is on for a new doc. I have set my sights on DR, and me and Sculptmenow are going together and are finally comfortable with the idea of traveling abroad for this surgery. Now the hard part is finding the right surgeon. The DR produces bodies that you just can't get here in the US, plain and simple. But the drawback to that is that IF shit hits the fan there's nothing legally that you can do about it AND your doc is far far away and you can't see them or sometimes even get a hold of them for post op care. At this point, that is a risk I'm willing to take, but I have to choose the right doc.
Duran produces some really great butts IMO, but she is super swamped. I mean so busy that you can't even get a quote, and I'm not sure how I feel about this. How can you tend to someone post op if you can't even hire someone to tend to your emails? I dunno, but her work is great. But I've also heard about her infections, the sciatic nerve fiasco and the chick having to re-learn how to walk, plus I've read that she's not even performing her own surgeries, she just IN the room, and her surgeons in training are doing it. Hmmm, not sure about that.
Yily is a master sculptor but I've read some 50/50 reviews on her. Even one review saying someone else was performing her surgery and that some man slapped her bc she woke up during surgery and started screaming. They they put a blanket over her face. I would BUGGG the fuck out, hard, if that happened to me. So she is out. Even the POSSIBILITY that that could happen freaks me out. No thanks.
Cabral IMO gives really great bodies if you want to be thick. I personally love really petite curvy girls. Like skinny with hips and butt. Most of his girls on his IG are all really thick (legs, etc) which isn't my thing, but there are a few girls on there that have my body type. My girl just had surgery with Cabral a week ago and she looks amazing tho. She had her round 1 with Yily a year ago, and she was small. Cabral has the ability to find ALL fat on you and USE it. Since I am small, I don't want to gain weight if I don't have to. Plus all the girls on the Cabral FB page all say he is the doc for me based on my wish pics. That he can make me look better than that. Hmmm, it's a hard choice (especially bc of his checkered past), but he is def a contender.
Robles does great TT, there is no question about that. And can transform bigger girls like crazy. But I just wonder how she can REALLy sculpt smaller girls, like myself. Plus her assistant Laura is amazing at communicating and getting back to you in the beginning, but after a day or two and having more questions she just falls off, which annoys me, so I'm not sure about her.
Almonte's assistant is AWESOME. SHe answers EVERYTHING, in detail, on whatsapp and in a very timely manner. I have seen some good reviews on her, but only a few great BBL results. I don't want to count her out bc she's underrated and has little RS reviews. But her assistant did send me a few pics of her before/afters and there is one really nice transformation. But the great thing about her is that she is SAFE. Not at CIPLA, and she really is concerned about your health. She won't work on you if your hemo is under a certain amount, and no aggressive lipo (5L or more removed) if you're under 15. I like her so far.
Finally there is Contreras who I LOVE. I just think he is so sweet. I speak to him whatsapp and he is amost kinda flirty. He says I have a beautiful face, and that he can transform me into my wish pics no problem. I've heard that he does amazing work on smaller girls, which is what I am. I also heard that he worked on Carolyn Aquino, who is one of my wish pics. I fell very comfortable with him, and he gets back to me super quick. I know about his sketchy reputation as well, but I've also heard great things about him. Honestly I was thinking of going with him a few months back, and was part of his FB group but I didn't like the bitchy girls in there, so I kinda affiliated his groupies with him and said no thanks. I know you can't judge a a doc based on a few bad girls, but it just left a bad taste in my mouth. But HE alone, sans fb drama, is great and I've liked what I've seen thus far. Plus I've heard that he is THE doc for anything breast related in DR, and If I decided to get a lift while I'm there I'd feel comfortable picking him for the whole package.
So that's what I have on my brain. LOL. Any of you have any suggestions, advice on picking the right doc, or input? Please HELP ME pick a doc. ;)
