Today is the day - "Make Me Over, Make Me Nice..."

I have been thinking about having a Brazilian Butt...

I have been thinking about having a Brazilian Butt Lift since 2006 and I'm finally to the point where I am ready to have one. I've decided that this is my year! I'm 37 and slim but I have terrible back fat, love handles and a tummy. I am hoping that the butt lift will not only give me a nice round behind but also a waistline. I have two children and I have completely let myself go. Because I do not have a lot of money, I am considering going leaving the US. I received a quote from Costa Rica for $3995. Great price but I can't find a single person on here (yes, I have frequented this site) that has gone to Costa Rica for this procedure. This makes me nervous. I'm hoping someone can provide some insight.

So I have changed my mind and decided to go the DR...

So I have changed my mind and decided to go the DR and have Dr. Yily do my surgery. She gave me quote of $3300 and after reading so many reviews, I believe she will be able to give me the results that I'm seeking. I have not decided on the recovery house but I'm thinking I will stay there as well. I am now looking for a roommate. I am hoping to find someone to go through this with for encouragement. I am so nervous and excited at the same time. I must stay for a minimum of 8 days which is about the longest that I can stay anyway and then its right back to the states and back to work!

I am now ready to make my deposit and book my flight but Dr. Yily has not responded to my request for the date I want. Is it safe to make the deposit even if she hasn't confirmed. Her email says don't worry about the date. But she seems to be so popular that I m not sure that the date will be available.

Sent my deposit today. I really want the May 25th date! I have not gotten confirmation yet but I don't see a lot of May 25ths so I am hopeful that it will be confirmed.

Tried to call DR today from my cell phone but it wouldn't go through. I found out from my carrier that it is $1.80 per minute. Gonna call from my friend's Vonage when I get off work.

I really want to book my flight but I can't until I hear from Yily. Ugh!!! I just want to know for sure. My flight has gone up $200 since I have been waiting!!!

So today, I have called about 4 times and on the fourth time, I got an English speaking person. I was excited!!! But apparently she does not support Dr. Yily and transferred me, ugh! The phone rung about 15 times before it just went fast busy :(.

I am not so concerned about the deposit as I believe that the surgery will happen. I'm more concerned about not having received a confirmation date and I have specific window that this needs to happen in. Calling back for the 5th time...

Flight booked! Next...start buying the things I will need. Checking out some of the RS sisters' lists to help with this task. But first, it's time to catch some zzzzzzz! Good night!

I have become obsessed with this site, lol! I appreciate everyone providing updates both postop and preop. Each time I know that your dates have arrived, I send a prayer up for your safety and speedy recovery. I am so happy I found this site. 7 years ago, I knew so little about the bbl. Today, I feel that it is because of the information available, especially your reviews, that I can make my dreams come true and do it with confidence. You all are truly amazing!

I initially had pics up but took them down because I was too embarrassed. Today, I am adding them back. You are my sisters and I want you to see the before so that we can all celebrate the results. And I will post a bikini pick closer to the day of my sx...inspired by many of you!

I am so excited as my day approaches. Good, bad...

I am so excited as my day approaches. Good, bad or indifferent, I am reading all of your posts and learning from each of you. I will definitely pay it forward.

Oh and I have a buddy. I think we are going to be a great support to each other through this process! I am soooo excited. Can't believe I am finally doing this!!!

Have a great day RS sisters. And to those still healing, you are in my prayers. I wish you beautiful results and a speedy recovery with little to no pain!

Just came from seeing my PCP to do blood work. She gave me a prescription for heparin and diclofenac but she didn't know what the calculus, omen razor or thrombosis cream are. Can someone please help with this? Was your doctor familiar with these? What did he/she prescribe?

Oops darn auto correct! I need help with...

Oops darn auto correct! I need help with clavulin, omeprazol, and thrombocid cream.

Panic over, lol. Now it is time to focus on packing...16 more days!!!

Can't get here fast enough

I have been checking and rechecking everything that I have packed. I am so ready to do this. Saturday, I will pay my remaining balance to Dr. Yily's Chase account. I am now making sure my kids will be good while I am gone. My plans for them fell through just last night but my sister stepped up with a better plan. I love her!!! And as for work, it's crazy right now but I am trying to put some things in place that will hold until I return. I refuse to let anything get in the way of my great day if I can help it so work will be there!!! RS sisters, I am counting down...finally single digits!!!!!!!!!!

Waist Clincher Pics

I am getting anxious while waiting for my day to arrive. This Friday I will be on my way to DR. This waist clincher is what I wear when I want to wear a fitted shirt while appearing to have a flat tummy, lol. Can't wait to no longer need it ;)

Had a pre-op lymphatic massage.

It was nice for the most part but when she got to my tummy, it was kind of rough. I haven't even had the procedure yet, ouch! Gonna look at the process on YouTube. I'm not sure that it was done right, lol.

Sitting on my butt...

Sitting on my butt realizing that I am going to be missing these moments after Saturday, lol. Can't wait!!!

Finally at Cipla

We arrived shortly after midnight in Santo Domingo. We came straight to Cipla per Dra Yily's instruction. There was someone expecting us so he unlocked the door and carried our bags to our room. So far so good! But just between us...I am so nervous about the sx. Today is the day!!!
