I had surgery with Yily may 2013. Wasn't...

I had surgery with Yily may 2013. Wasn't completely satisfied with the outcome bc she only gave me an inch on my butt nd my stomach is still flabby:( This time around I'm gonna get in shape nd lose 20 lbs b4 surgery. My measurements are 36d-26.5-45 nd I'm getting bbl and bl. Duran gives a lot of ass so I'm pretty confident ill b happy with the outcome from both surgeons combined.

Before sx pics

Ok I think some of u may hav the wrong idea. I wasn't busted nd disgusted before I got my sx with yily. Well I ws a little lol bc I gained 10 lbs in the 2 months I was waiting for surgery. But before tht my body wasn't sloppy nd my booty ws already pretty big bc like I told y'all in last review I had injections in 2010 so I was already a 44. Bc some of y'all think I look good doesn't mean I shld b so grateful for my results bc my shape wasn't terrible before. I rlly wanted more butt nd I ddnt get tht. So thts where my dissatisfaction comes from. You jus happens to b very conservative when it comes to fat transfer. Which is understandable bc she wants to b safe BUT she ddnt deliver wht I asked for. An expectation of 2-3 inches after a bbl is not unrealistic ijs. I want more lipo nd I want a bl nd more ass so thts y I'm getn a rd 2. I hav posted sum befores nd I will leave these up until Sunday night then I'm takin em down. I appreciate all the feedback comments nd well wishes tho:-) I will respond to y'all comments asap

Before pics coming down soon

I'm removing my before pics in the morning. I posted them so some of u all cld c where I was coming from with y I we unhappy with the additional inch I got on my butt from Yily. I also had my arms lipo'd as well nd they ddnt go down at all sooooooo....gss u all cn form ur own opinions from my experience. Xoxo

Expectations nd wish pics

So I bn talking to my boyfriend nd talked to my friend who went to Duran last may abt my rd2. They are telling me not to do it, my butt is big Enuf nd basically they r both concerned tht it will b too big after I go to Duran. So I'm staring to have 2nd thoughts. I honestly think it'll b perfect but there is tht thought in the back if my mind tht I cld possibly overdo it nd end up looking real crazy lol. My 45 inch hip measurement comes predominantly from my wide hips nd not my butt so I jus want more fat back there. I totally feel like my frame can handle it but there's the "what if" factor. Bc once it's in there I'm pretty much stuck with it lol. As of now I plan to still hav my surgery.

My surgery buddy is duran doll she is going for her round 2 with Duran and we are staying at Yasmin's. More than anything else I'm nervous abt how my breast lift is gonna turn out. I love sexy tits nd if my boobs end up massacred lopsided nd all tht jazz ima cry y'all I'm so serious. I believe in durans skills but I haven't seen many lifts without implants so I'm praying on this. I have started researching scarring after breast lift nd I will come up with a complete regimen to combat the scarring. Supposed to book my flight next month nd after tht it's super official no turning back. I posted wish pics of waist to hip ratio, projection, butt cuff, nd tits. These r things I hope to improve with my round2.

I am still planning to lose 15-20 lbs before surgery. Tht will put me at 140-145 nd at 5'1 I think she will hav plenty of fat to work with. If not oh well. Id rather b close to my goal weight nd much healthier for my surgery this time around. I will b focusing most of my attn on my arms nd my legs since I am not lipoing those areas. I don't want to necessarily lose my legs but id like to tone nd replace the fat thts there will muscle. That's all for now;) later babes

I wasn't finished updating


Ps simulator pics

I was questioning my round 2 but after downloading tht ps app I am more determine thn ever. OMg if I look like these pics after my rd 2 ill drool over my own damn body lol. So it's def a go. I did my best with the app y'all this ws my 1st time using it but I'm sure y'all get the idea. Thanks 41morelife2live for recommending it. Muah.

What to expect after breast lift & scar prevention

What to Expect after Mastopexy

Patients can increase their chances of being satisfied with the results of breast lift surgery by being more informed about what to expect afterwards. Below you will find important information on breast lift surgery, including the recovery process and the scars that the surgery leaves behind.

As with any surgery, breast lift recovery takes time. To better prepare you for the recovery period, we have provided information on what to expect just after surgery, as well as the changes that will occur during the months following.

DocShop can help you find a cosmetic surgeon in your area today.

The First Two Weeks

Following breast lift surgery, patients may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which typically last from two to three weeks. Prescription pain medications may make patients more comfortable during the first week of breast lift recovery. Patients are required to avoid sleeping on their stomachs for the first two weeks, and are advised to take sponge baths until the sutures are removed. Your doctor will make other suggestions to maximize comfort during the recovery period.

During breast lift recovery, patients are required to wear a surgical bra for the first few days following surgery. This bra is then replaced with a support bandage or sports bra which is to be worn at all times for several weeks. The sutures are removed from the breasts after a week or two. Patients are normally able to return to work and light activities after about a week. However, during the first week, it is important to avoid bending over or performing any strenuous activities that put unnecessary pressure on the chest. Strenuous activity too soon after surgery can slow healing and cause excess swelling and bleeding.

Because smoking reduces circulation, you should stop smoking for two to four weeks prior to your breast lift to reduce recovery time.

The First Several Months

During breast lift recovery, it may take a month or more before all swelling and bruising disappears and the final breast lift results are apparent. Patients should avoid wearing underwire bras for the first month after surgery, and instead wear a supportive bandage or bra at all times.

There tends to be some numbness in the nipples and skin after breast lift surgery; this should disappear in approximately six weeks; in some rare cases this numbness can be permanent. Some patients experience a burning or tingling sensation in the breasts during breast lift recovery as the nerves begin to return to normal function. Breast lift surgery patients should not lift anything over their head for three to four weeks following surgery, and should avoid lifting anything heavy for four to six weeks.

Breast Lift Scars

Breast lift scars will be very noticeable for the first few months, often appearing red and lumpy. The scars will continue to fade into thin white lines over the next several months, but will never go away completely. Cortisone cream and silicone sheeting may reduce the appearance of scars. When considering the long-term results of breast lift surgery, many women feel that scars are a fair trade-off for firmer, younger-looking breasts. However, in some cases, abnormal breast lift scars can form, causing undesirable results.

It is also important that women who choose to undergo breast lift surgery do not plan to have more children, as pregnancy can cause additional sagging of the breasts. Though undergoing another breast lift is a viable option, it will probably result in more noticeable scars.

The surgical technique used during your breast lift procedure will also influence the appearance of your scars. Your surgeon will explain the typical scarring associated with each technique, including the standard (anchor) breast lift surgery, doughnut mastopexy, and laser bra lift techniques; together, you can determine which is appropriate for you.

Scarring from Breast Augmentation - What Can I Do About It?
Scarring of the skin -OR- “Did the doctor do a bad job stitching me up?”
What is a Scar?

After a surgical incision, we make collagen to repair the gap. Collagen is just like cement filling the space between 2 bricks.Too much collagen is always made, but then we also make an enzyme called collagenase that melts the extra collagen. This molding process goes on for months. Collagen is made and the extra removed in a process designed to mold the original shape of the skin. If extra collagen is left, a thick scar is formed.

A perfect balance between collagen and collagenase will leave the least noticeable scar. Often, our healing process works too well! After the skin has re-formed, we keep on healing. If we could “turn up” the collagenase in our cells, we could melt the extra scar tissue.

Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists have known for decades that there are ways to reduce scars. Until now though, none have been very convenient. Pressure bandages were found to help increase production of collagenase, our natural scar-melting enzyme, and have been used on burn scars for over a century. Cortisone Creams not only soothe irritated skin but also stimulate natural collagenase production. In extreme cases, doctors may use cortisone injections.

Doctors have prescribed Silicone Sheets for decades. Silicone sheeting taped over a scar will help reduce it. This was discovered in the early 80’s, when a doctor tried to apply pressure to a scar more evenly with a silicone gel sheet. The scars treated with silicone seemed to decrease much more rapidly. Vitamin E helps by working on the collagen fibers and makes a scar softer and more pliable.

Closing the Skin after Breast Augmentation Surgery
The first step in getting the best scar we can is the skin closure. Fortunately, most patients go to board-certified plastic surgeons for their surgery. For a plastic surgeon, closing the skin is like breathing. You have so much practice and training, it is second nature and there is truly very little difference from one experienced plastic surgeon to another.

I have had many patients come to me over the years to fix scars left by other surgeons. They are sometimes surprised when I explain to them that it looks like the incision was closed properly, but formed a bad scar anyway. This can happen.

After the skin is closed properly, what else can I do to lessen my scar?
For years, after the bandage or sterile strips were removed all you could do was cross your fingers. In 1938, Vitamin E was discovered. Over the past 20 years painting it on scars has been popular, but as I explain above, it softens them and doesn’t shrink them. There have been cortisones tapes and silicone gels and creams, all of which were helpful, but difficult to use because they were either messy or fell off.

I recommend a product called ScarGuard. This product combines all of the treatments that I described above into one liquid. It is a clear liquid that forms a fine flexible film within a few seconds after painting it onto the scar. This film helps to protect the scar from irritation while delivering silicone cortisone and vitamin E throughout the day. I have my patients start using ScarGuard right after the steri-strips or bandages come off. Treatment is continued twice a day for 3 to 6 months or until the scar has almost disappeared.

Nothing will completely remove a scar, and a few will heal badly no matter what we do, but I believe that using a product such as ScarGuard makes a very big difference in the end result.

What if I already have a bad scar from a past Breast Augmentation?
The first step is to see your doctor for an evaluation. Sometimes, a second minor surgery to revise the scar is advisable. If scar revision is not indicated then try using ScarGuard. ScarGuard works on old scars as well as new ones. If you undergo a scar revision, talk to your doctor about starting ScarGuard as soon as the bandages are removed. Credit of

So after doing a bit of reading I have come up with a regimen tht will suit me best when dealing with preventing breast lift scarring. I am gonna purchase the scarguard nd use it for the 1st 3 months along with scarguard or scar away silicone sheets for the 1st 3 months. I will be applying a vitamin e nd grapeseed oil mixture to my incisions after the 1st 3 months

Yily vs. Duran

Many ppl ask me whts the difference between Yily and Duran and here's the gist of how I typically answer.
***This is the thing...if u already have sum butt Yily will make u look amazing once she sculpts u removing all ur upper body fat. BUT if u dnt already hav an ass to begin wit it will depend on ur frame of whether or not Yily will b able to deliver inches when it comes to ur butt measurements. If u are a thin girl talk or short with a small or thin frame Yily will work her magic with you. On the other hand if ur on the bigger wider side of things with a large frame Yily is NOT going to give u a big butt. Too much surface area to cover with us more wider girls. I honestly believes she has a set range for big nd small nd she doesn't go above tht for safety reasons. She doesn't inject as much fat as Duran or Cabral. Big girls = Duran thin girls = Yily . I am happy with wht she did with my body I am not happy with the size of my butt. It looks much better but it ws gonna look better even without the bbl bc she took fat off my top. My goal was a bigger butt...ya kno at least a couple inches. I only got one tho which is better thn nothing;) so thts y I'm doing round 2 bc my ultimate goal was ass nd still is. Chances r if u see a girl who went to Yily she already had butt before her surgery or she ws a thin girl. I hav yet to see a single person who went to Yily who ended up with a nice bottom tht ddnt fit into one of those 2 categories. I think they are all (yily Duran nd even Cabral) equally great at sculpting small waist they all jus dnt give out the same amount of fat . Ppl hav to keep in mind tht we are all built diff nd some of us hav hips some of us dnt, some are naturally curvy some are not, some of us naturally hav tht dipped in waist under the fat nd some of us dnt. Thts y I wish ppl wldnt get so enthralled in other ppls results bc no body is gonna turn out like the next person. Jus bc u see it delivered on such nd such doesn't mean tht dr cn deliver tht for u. Go with the doctor you hav seen deliver the results u want on ppl who are built as closely as possible to ur own body, frame, nd height. Hth

Eta: left out a few words above

*chances r if u c someone who went to Yily nd she has a big butt it's most likely bc she started with a butt or she was a thin girl

Date confirmed!..again nd pics

Took a few pics without pants so y'all cld get a good look at my butt. There r some dimples there. Idk if it's from me not working out or wht...I hav Bn eating a lot of bs tho nd haven't hit the gym in long long time. I also posted a pic so y'all cld get a better look at my tummy nd back. It's hella flabby nd I cnt wait til
It's sucked off lol. My back has rolls too jus depending on how I'm standing or bending. My waist is 26.5 which is pretty small but the amount of fat on my midsection I'm assuming a person my height my build 5'1 shld hav a 23 or 24 inch waist. Cuz there is a lot of extra meat . My goal is 24 tho.

I contacted Durans office this morning to reconfirm my sx date. I hav read a cpl blogs where ppl were not confirmed every time they called to check. It ws 930 dr time nd I spoke with Elizabeth. She had me confirmed in the schedule for May 22 nd also had my surgery cost included in her notes as well. Thank God! Now tht I hav tht out the way I cn purchase my flight. Thts all for now:) xoxo

Switch date

I'm thinking of switching my May 22nd date for a date in late July. If anyone has a late July date nd may be interested in switching with me inbox me pls

Canceling my May 22nd date.

Call and get it if u want it. I would like to go back in sept/October but haven't scheduled it yet. Wish I cld go next month as plAnned but I dnt hav all my cash yet. Will update with pics when I'm
A year post op

Didn't have sx in May Round 2 feb 2015

Hey ladies. This is just a brief update. I have went back nd forth with myself like so many times of whether or not to have my round 2. But I just honestly dnt believe I'm gonna b satisfied until I have my 2nd round. I set up an appt for my sister to have a bbl with fisher at vanity nd thts in 2 weeks. Doing research on him for her just gave me bbl fever all over again.

Today I contacted Duran again bc I knew that my quote I received in oct/nov of 2013 prob wldnt still b valid by the time I want to go in February 2015. She told me she thinks I dnt hav much fat nd she says I look great. She says perfection doesn't exist and she doesn't kno if she can make me happy. But if I still want to come she will do her best. Pics must b hella deceiving y'all bc I hav so much fat on me. Just think abt it I'm 5'1 nd160 lbs. c'mon I gots plenty. So I let her kno tht nd she emailed me right back with a quote. She's including lipo of back abdomen flanks and she said I can choose my arms or thighs nd she will do all tht for $3800:) y'all kno I ws geeked right lol. Last time she gave me a quote it ws 4k nd additional 250$ or 300$ for arms or thighs. So I'm planning for valentines day lol.

Here are a few pics. Notice how it looks diff from various angles nd from the side it looks good depending on how well I'm sucking my tummy in. My butt is huge from back but from the side it's a disappointment. So I want her to fill it out more. I have holes from reabsorbtion nd my rt cheek is bigger than the other. I want a healthy cuff and more projection. I am positive Duran can give me wht I'm looking for. Suck me dry and shape up my booty better. 2 inches at the most. I don't want a circus ass. My measurements are 36-26.5-45.5. Thts a good butt measurement but the majority of those inches comes from my hips they are verrrrrry wide. From left hip to rt hip it's 25 inches. So I got more hips than ass. I'll let her kno exactly wht I want so it won't b too big. I'll keep y'all posted.

Btw Baez is so nice I got a quote from her 3k for everything including thighs. She's not experienced enuf for me tho nd I cnt do wild cards. I dnt want a lipo round 3! Her breasts are phenom tho so I may come back to dr nd let her do my boobs. Cabralquoted me 4k for bbl but I'm still scared of him nd I think Duran is on his level now so ill b good with her.

*took these pics yesterday

Sister had sx with fisher last week

Sister had surgery at vanity few days ago and I was surprised by a lot of their practices. I already knew they were ridiculously disorganized from other reviews but I never thought with having surgery in the u.s. Some things would b worse than in the dr. It was clean and all and very pretty in the front but when u get ur ass out of surgery u may as well b livestock. I don't think they rlly gaf abt their patients. Garment not included in quotes but they did supply some compression stockings. Individual attention is pretty much nonexistant nd u hav to yell if u need help. They don't have any soup, crackers, or juice they provide u with post op so if u dnt hav a loved one there with u ur ass is grass. U gon starve. They will give u a cup of Gatorade tho lol. They put u in probably what is a 20x25 room with a bunch of curtains to give u an illusion of privacy. There are ppl constantly being wheeled in right out of surgery with the shivers and shakes and screaming about pain. There were 5 beds from year 1968 in the room lol. Medical records all over the place. HIPAA violation anyone ? An old outdated vitals machine tht wasn't hooked to anyone in particular just beeped like crazy. They prescribe u percocets for pain but what they don't tell u is miami has a Percocet abuse nd addiction problem so it's not carried at all pharmacies and the ones tht do carry it are only able to disperse a certain number of pills a day nd once they reach tht number of allotted pills they cnt give any more out. IMO the patient or the patients family shouldn't b responsible for locating these pharmacies especially if they are not locals. Idky they can't call the prescription in bc who the hell is riding all over miami looking for percs? Not me. I'm like whtever anyway bc I ddnt hav pain meds in DR. My motto is shit jus deal with it. I did. But I did end up finding her some on bird road. They wldnt tell me over the phone if they actually had the pills so I had to take a chance nd just go see. (Silly shit)

I ws at vanity from 8am to 830pm the day of her surgery. The front room of vanity is packed alllllllll day. Constantly ppl coming in nd out for consults, surgery, nd post op follow up visits. If ur scheduled for surgery b prepared to wait 1-2 past appt, if u hav a consult be prepared to wait 1-2hr past appt time. They get the post op visits in pretty quickly from what I cld see(but wht I ddnt kno was tht post ops aren't with the physician but the drs assistant) at my sis post op visit all the girl did was remove her garment and and do a skin check. Hell I clda did tht. The dr wasn't there to answer any of her questions or concerns. All the employees at vanity aka vanidades are of Latin descent. They were friendly though. I did c some very nice employee asses. There are rlly no private rooms here so family isn't allowed to sit with u before surgery and after either. They did allow me in the room I mentioned earlier but they weren't supposed to nd I think it ws only bc they came out and told me to go buy her some food. When I got back I was the one who fed her.

So my sister was only staying 3 days post op since liah told her tht ws fine. She gets to vanity for consult nd blood work nd they tell her she needs to stay way longer. I was in the dr for 13 days Ik tht a lengthy visit isn't particularly necessary especially if u had ur sx in the states. U recover better at home. Dr fisher tells my sister well if u leave at 3days po I hav to take ur drain out bc no one else is gonna wanna take it out. Wtf? So she gets worried and feels like she HAS TO STAY LONGER. I jus tell her if u dnt want them to touch u again it's ur body he can't force anything on u. I wish I wld allow my sister to b 3-4 days post op filling up with fluid on a plane. I dnt think so.

I feel like I got more attention nd care in the Dominican Republic. So don't automatically assume tht bc u hav ur sx in state its better thn abroad. Nd in SOME instances it just boils down to u get wht u pay for. I think it's absolutely necessary to be able to stay overnight where u hav ur procedure at. I wouldn't hav wanted to have surgery and 5 hours later I have to get up and go to my hotel room or home. Unnecessary stress imo. I feel like they should feed the patients something other thn wtf. I ddnt realize all the certain LUXURIES I had by having my surgery at cipla. I ddnt hav to make unnecessary visits to cipla, I had a 1 day post op visit with my doctor, I was given food and fed by an aide, I was able to b with family/friend immediately before nd following surgery, the drs will allow u to buy a medication package so u dnt hav to run all over gettin meds, everything is included in ur price(for the most part u are not nickeled and dimed unless u go to Cabral lol), the drs call or text u post op to check on u, privacy/private room for my belongings and family, one night stay with catheter and iv was included in my quote I think a overnight stay is important. This is all I got right now y'all. Look at the pics. There's a pic of shelf with medical records with fishers name and hasans name. Btw her ass looks GREAT:)!! Sorry bout the bloody faja. She has pee and blood all on the genital area of her garment nd they told her don't take it off to wash it:/ ugh but I guess so stat pissy nd bloody. After she had the post op with the asst the lady told her it ws ok for hr to wash it now.

Was your rd2 easier than your rd1?

I wanna go to DR For my rd 2 with Duran the 1st week of April but I wanted to hear from any ladies who hav done 2 rounds already. I'm not going to hav as much time off this time as I did the 1st time around and I'm really hoping a week nd half off work will b fine. I dont hav a desk job nd some times I do hav to do physical work. Last time I had an entire month off nd tht wasn't necessary...I think I Wlda Bn good with jus 2. So if any one has done this twice let me know if u recovered any faster. Thanks

Love Cabral but cardiologist said no sx tomorrow

Blood pressure too high cardiologist said no surgery Tommorow. I'm fine with Tht bc I dnt wanna b on a table when im not ready. He wrote me a script for a bp pill to take nd I am scheduled for ecg tomorrow am. If my results aren't satifying or my bp doesn't go down I will come back after my pressure is controlled. Nd this will jus be a vacation. God will lead the way. Will keep Yall posted. I lovvvvvvvedcabral tho he said baby ur gonna b sooooo nice. I paid for everything already. Ecg is 90$ nd meds were 45$ ttyl

No surgery for me. Cardiologist still says no

Cardiologist still doesn't want me to have surgery. I went and had a echo of my heart yesterday morning. The specialist says my heart is normal nd fine. But she had to work with me to help my nerves. I get anxious very easily nd it makes my heart beat fast. She Ws great with me. So I take the paperwork to Diaz the cardiologist nd he takes my bp again...still too high 160/90 he takes it 3 times its the same...he asks me if I took my pills today I say yes. He does another ekg on me nd my heart is racing nd it's showing on the test 117 bpm. Looking like Tachycardia. But it's all emotional. I show him my ekg I had done in the states on this past sundayand he said wow u hav good strong heart healthy perfect...if u cld do this here u cld hav surgery but u r being too emotional working urself up. Idk wht it is sbt being in a dr office but I get stressed white coat effect I guess. He says he will prescribe me another pill to bring my hr down nd I cn come hav surgery on Monday if I its lower. I said its fine I will go home nd get healthier altogether. I'm not trying to force anything. So I will go home work out faithfully nd eat clean nd take my meds. I will come back in July. Booking flight for tht as soon as I get home. I spoke with Cabral today when I went to get my money nd he says no he not money hungry he wants me to b healthy nd get better bf he has big plans for my body nd he knows exactly wht he is going to do to me nd tht I am going to be so beautiful Bc I hav a good shape already????????im excited to get in shape nd come back when im more prepared to undergo my surgery. So I am just vacationing instead nd doing all kinds of stuff. Jose Brito is looking out for me nd making sure me nd my sister R having a good time. Ttyl
