Hi everyone, I have 3 children the youngest is 7....

Hi everyone, I have 3 children the youngest is 7. I had my tubes tied after my youngest was born :-)

I am about 5"5" or 5"4" not really sure, my weight stays around 150-160 ish. I breast feed all my children and I am going to be in my mid 30's when I have the surgery done. I have spoken with my mother about this and she is 100% all for it.

I wanted to have liposculpture, of my complete abdomen are upper and lower, my sides, my complete back upper and lower, my arms, and the top of my inner thigh where the honey pot is LOL.
I want fat transferred to my hips and the booty. I want a sexy but survey look. I want to see the difference of my own fat being added to my hips and booty. I am a size 8/9 now with the spillage of my fat busting out and over my pants.

I have sent an email to dra Duran today, I got a simple response back, thanking me for contacting her and what can she do for me. I found a app to down load on my phone, I do not know nor understand Spanish. I really like this app :-)

you can type what you want to say, then select Spanish to English or the other way around. it shows you what you're typing in both languages, it even speaks what you typed in the language of your choice. I sent a email back using what I typed and copied with the app. Now I guess I sit back and wait to see what Duran suggests. I think I need a tt as well, I'm also RH negative, so I have questions for her about my options if I need blood.( I am positive I won't need it # God! Will work it out ).

I will be traveling solo, and would like to maybe have and make a lasting friend along the way. I think I want to go next year of course after taxes. The only thing is getting someone to take care of my children while I'm gone for a while :-(

Not sure if I'm doing this right..trying to post pre op pics, I don't see them

I think I posted my pre op pics not sure though because I don't see them, I've tried a few times now.. if u ladies see a repost of the pics please let me know. Thanks

Pre open pics

As you can see I carry majority of my weight in my stomach and side's, I think I have more than enough fat from my stomach alone to get the butt I want, and the fat fromy side's and complete back with my arms and inner thigh my hips should be on point.

I'm not sure how this works though. Does the PS remove all fat from the areas first then transfer it to the butt, then hips. Or do they remove from one or two areas then transfer that fatto the butt, then remove gat frfrom the remainder areas and transfer to the hips. I think this would be a really good question to ask a doctor or two.


sorry for the typos, using my cell phone, and it's one of the many smart phones in the world now that aren't so smart. LOL. Y'all over look the deodorant clump in the picture. lmao I didn't even notice it until I post the pictures. LOL my bad...

Pictures of me with clothes on, looks can be deceiving..

Two pictures of what my shape looked like clothed, looks totally different without clothes on. I want to look sexy and curvy with or without clothes on.

Pictures I took today

Email reply from Dr. Baez just now..

Hi ladies, I just received a reply email from Beaz. She asked me to send her pictures so that she cam evaluate me and give a quote, she also asked for my medical history.

I just sent her my pictures I have posted here, and mentioned to here my blood type. I will update once I hear back from her with a quote.

I'm not creating a blog for Duran dolls in 2014.

I know some have ideas of creating a page/blog for those of us who are planning to travel to the DR next year.

Being that Real Self is one big blog. I do have ideas that will accomplish what most of us are looking for.

However being that I work in a administration department for a living, I know that there's rules and guidelines in place for every site like this. We can't just form a blog within someone's established business. Out of respect for the owners of the site and administration department personnel.

I think that contacting them first to give your ideas or thoughts would be best then move along from that point.

It's a lot involved in creating a page that multiple people want to be apart of and only one person being able to control what is posted. The staff of Real Self has the ability to remove unwanted content, pictures and so on. The individual accounts we created ourselves allows us to post what we'd like an edit as we see fit.
I just wanted to clarify this in my page. I will for sure post my thoughts experiences, and what I find out to share as I get it.

The waiting game...

Well still no response on quotes as of yet from other of the surgeons. Looking forward to seeing the results of the ladies who are having surgery the next few months of this year.

Quote from PS Duran

I just received my quote from Duran. She quoted $4,500 for liposculpture of the upper/lower stomach, upper/lower back, sides, arms and inner thighs. Fat transferred to the hips and booty, with a tummy tuck.

I asked for a second quote with all the above but with a BA done. She stated that she will charge $6,500 if I decided to do everything.

She provided a list of suggested RH to contact, a list of what I would need, info in the insurance and the meds that will need to be purchased. In the email was the information for sending the deposit to secure a date, and she asked that after I have purchased plane ticket, secured a RH to call the office so that they can make sure I have everything lined up right. She also provides a list of suggested plane services to use.

Now just waiting on Baez, and I am going to email Hilly tomorrow for a quote.

Surgery Quote from PS Baez

I just received my quote from Baez, to make this post short I sent her the same email that I sent Duran. So the quote is for the same procedures. She quoted $3,700 for Lipo of everything, the fat transfer to hips and butt with the tummy tuck.

She quoted $4,800 for all mentioned above in addition too the breast lift with implants.
Now I'm just waiting for Yily.

Email from PS Yily

I received an email from PS Yily in the 10th late night Luke after 11:30 pm. Well she was responding to my email, I apparently my pictures didn't attach.That sucks!. Say the least sent her another email today with pics and mad sure they attached this go round. Back to waiting...

Feeling so exhausted..

You that moment when you have a headache, and it won't go away. That moment whenhen you are trying to read and you doze off not knowing, then you try it again and the same result happens. Smh, I guess I have to give into my body and sleep, because no matter how hard I try to fight it, I am going to be the loser.. I hope thing's are going well for you ladies, and safe, speedy recovery for them who are healing.

Email from PS Baez and what she stated, requires and suggested


Thank you for thinking of me for an evaluation of plastic surgery, forrealization of all the surgeries you requested the most important thing is that you must be healthy and the cardiologist must approve that we can perform all procedures. The price for the surgeries that you are requesting  tummy tuck, lipo to abdomen, waist, back, thighs, flanks and Brazilian butt lift (fat transfer to butt)  is US$ 3,700, breast lift with implants iss 4800, which includes:

-Airport pick up
-evaluation by plastic surgeon
-Chest X-ray
-Cardiovascular evaluation
- Laboratory exams
-Overnight stay in the clinic
-First compressive garment
-Free of charge follow ups
-Medication post-surgery
-lymphatic drain massages and ultrasound massages  are not included

The amount of fat transfer to your buttocks depends on how many cc can be extracted with liposuction.Your results also depend on your hemoglobin level if you want to get excellent results you really have to be healthy and no anemia. I recommend you to begin taking vitamins (C and B complex, folic acid, iron) and please ask your primary can doctor to take some blood test like glycaemia, full blood cell count and creatinine at least to know if you can have all surgeries done.

Important info:

Your date for surgery is important because I work from Monday to Saturday, I just have two patients per day except Thursday and Saturday that I just can have one patient (I also have to go to a public hospital to perform reconstructive surgeries), you also have to arrive one day before surgery to be evaluated and have lab work done, if you are arriving early is better for you because lab test can be done from 8.00am to 6.00 pm.

Medication included in you package are antibiotics, analgesics and gastric protection medication, all drugs provided are given to take by mouth. There is also ten session ultrasound massages included; the massager will give you some lymphatic drainage massages too.

Your compressive garment included is a Fajate’s brand item if you want one more garment it cost 120 dollars.

I work with a team, my cardiologist will evaluate you and my anesthesiologist will examine you and discuss what type of anesthesia suits you right, you might have epidural block or general anesthesia. Anesthesiologist and cardiologist have the last word about how many procedures can be done safely on you.

If you smoke or use addictive drugs you must quit them, two or three months before surgery an two months after too in order to get good results and no complications. Plastic surgeries are for healthy people or those who have any clinical condition but are under control, if you have any disease you have to consult and get approval of your doctor before surgery.

If you need transportation or a recovery house we can offer these services with an additional fee. You can hire a taxi driver at a recovery house, from my office or from yellow pages, a round trip from my office to the place you are staying it costs about 10 dollars.

You will have to stay in Santo Domingo from 10 -14 days depending on the surgeries you will get. Your follow up visits are included and you don’t have to pay more money for them, you don’t have to pay to the massager; you will have to pay only if you receive any service that was not previously included.

It is not necessary to deposit to my bank account to lock a surgery date, you just have to confirm your surgery 3 weeks before traveling here but you can if you are willing to do it. I just accept cash and payments with credit cards have a 15% taxes by the clinic. This is how you can deposit/wire, you can transfer from US$500 to total cost of your surgery. You can do this from now or when you have everything set for your surgery. Once you go to a JP Chase Morgan Bank ask to deposit money in a bank in Dominican Republic, this is the info for the deposit:
Bank: Banco Popular Dominicano
Account Number: 778276212
Recipient: Australia Altagracia Fragoso Báez
Once you deposit the money you can send me a mail and i will confirm that everything is ok.


Questions or doubts about the price or the elements included in your surgery package just email and I will reply as fast as I can.

Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery.

Select the date you would like to have surgery. We recommend you plan your date accordingly, allowing yourself to remain in the country for two weeks. If you cannot stay two weeks, you must stay for minimum of 15 days so we can guarantee that you leave out of risk. Please take into account the procedures you want to have. The more procedures you have, the longer you should stay.  In order to confirm and guarantee your surgery date, you must secure your date with a MINIMUM deposit of $500 (NON-REFUNDABLE). A deposit is required as a show of good faith that you are serious about having surgery. In the past we have scheduled patients for surgery who did not show up. We apologize we cannot guarantee a surgery date without a deposit. Verbal confirmation a date is available for surgery does not guarantee you that date. Surgeries are scheduled on first come basis when the deposit is made. Once your deposit is made please send me an email with a photo attached of the deposit slip receipt. The deposit date and amount must be visible. I will respond to your email confirming your date is guaranteed. You must retain the deposit receipt and present it the day of surgery to receive credit for the deposit.



Confirming Your Date:

Once your deposit is made, snap a picture of the deposit slip. Send an email to DraYilyPlastica@gmail.com with the picture of the deposit slip receipt attached and the following info:


ü  Full name

ü  Phone or cell phone number

ü  Day of the surgery

ü  Place where you will be staying at

ü  Flight information (airline, flight number, date and time)

ü  Quote and procedures

ü  Confirmation number of the deposit & account number (photo)


Payment Forms:

The balance of your surgery must be paid prior to your surgery. You can pay the morning of your surgery at the clinic. I only accept cash. You may pay in US dollars or Dominican pesos. I don’t accept financing, credit card, care credit, money orders, bank check or personal checks.


About the procedures:

The day of surgery

You have to fast the day of surgery so don't eat or drink anything but water. You have to be in the clinic at 7 am, you’ll have the test done, the consultation with me and then the surgery. One of my assistant will be with me to translate and for a better communication.


After surgery

I will give you instructions and recommendations for your recovery. You will stay 1 night in the clinic. You have to wear the garment for 3 months and can’t spend more than 45 minutes a day without it during these months.



We usually use continuous epidural block. Although some patients prefer general anesthesia, it is at the discretion of the anesthesiologist. He is a trusted professional and knows what anesthesia is the best for each patient.


Breast Augmentation

The implants are placed under the muscle. The stitches are absorbable; they do not need to be removed. I do not transfer fat to breast because of the issue of breast cancer.


Tummy tuck

The tummy tuck scar/incision is 4cm from the pubic line. I use stitches that dissolve, so they do not have to be removed. I cannot tell you how many inches your waist will be reduced as that is dependent on your diastasis and the separation of your muscles. This will be determined during surgery. You will have a drain after surgery that will collect excess fluid. This drain will be removed in 7-14 days, depending on your recovery. Please note it is recommended you wait at least 1 year to get pregnant after having this procedure.


BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift)

This procedure entails grafting fat from other areas of your body and injecting it into your buttocks. I cannot determine how much fat I can graft before surgery. The amount of fat injected in the buttocks will depend on how much fat your buttocks can accept and your hip size. The fat will be injected in all directions as long as it does not compress the sciatic nerve. Too much fat injected in the buttocks can cause necrosis or form abscesses. This mainly occurs when the patient does not have proper post-op care. After having a BBL you CAN sit on your butt and sleep on your back.


Important notice about BBLs: Most of the butts in the “wish pics” that some of my patients send me are made of PMMA. I do not use PMMA. I solely do fat grafting and inject the fat in the buttock. I will always try to give my patients their desired results, but we have to be aware that there are limits when injecting fat.

For anyone who want to know PMMA Injections

Although PMMA is Not Cement, it is the major component in the Cement used for orthopaedic procedures, such as the cement used to hold artificial hips and knees in place.

PMMA Should Not be used in the buttocks. It feels hard, and lumpy, can get infected. Also if it gets into your blood vessels, it can travel to your lungs and kill you. Foreign material injected into the buttocks as a quick fix has been a problem for years. You may have heard about the recent death of Miss Argentina from these injections.

Down to the two, Duran or Yily?

Well I have decided to not go with Baez. I have it narrowed down to Duran or Yily.

For those who like to eat like I do, try making some homemade cakes for weight gain :-)

well ladies not only do I like to cook, but I like baking homemade goodies. I figure if you bake at least one homemade treat a week it will add to picking up a couple extra pounds. 7 up pound cake! yummy...

Thinking of taking the kido's..

So I have never really taken a vacation with my kido's, I was thinking that I could rent an apartment or a condo, maybe a resort stay for the two weeks of being in the DR. I was also thinking that maybe I could hire a nanny for two weeks, or a guide to schedule things to do, or to show the family around to have some fun. My brother will be coming along so this would be a great family experience I think. My brother cooks and cleans like I do so I wouldn't need a cook, or maid. Once when I had a really bad flu he cleaned my place from top to bottom and took my kido's to school, went food shopping, and I woke up to him handing me homemade soup with Chinese cabbage and veggies that was spicy..

I would need to get pass ports for the children (3) of them plus myself, my brother has one already. So I think I will google places that are near the surgery center and see what's available. If any one has any ideas they would be appreciated!

Random picture in pants

This is a random picture, I'm going to post other pictures in clothing that I wear on a regular. That way you have a good idea of how different the body looks depending on what's worn. I hope to have one consistent look, clothes on or off, no matter what is worn I want my new look to look the same way at all times.

No hips in the pants

Decision has been made, Dr.Yily will be doing my surgery!!

Hi ladies, it's been a while since I've updated. I have decided to go with Yily. Why? Well it just feels right right with me as well as the results she provides. I am confident that she will be able to get my waist down to a 5/6 minimum being I was before I had my last two children I was a 3/4 after my first child 19 years ago those was the day's lol.

I like how my email summed everything up for me and how it provided additional information that I didn't know. I have figured out the care of my children while I'm gone for about 14-15 days. My brother is moving in with me this year and wants to rebuild himself so he'll be here for at least 6 months to a year. I have picked up weight I am now 160 pounds it doesn't look like it so I think I might push it to 165 pounds. I have had specific hidden request from my lover. Lol he said to me, keep it sexy..not thick. I was like excuse me..I'm going to keep it sexy, but it will be attention drawing so deal with. He better tighten up, because like Beyonce said if you liked it, you should have put a ring on it! He already get's clingy when out in public now. Smh man oh man the ideas in my head, I'm ready to play hard!

Making moves..

Hi ladies, it's been a while. I am scheduling a physical and complete blood work check with my primary care doctor this week. I want to make sure that I am in good health before sending my deposit.

So I will request the following things to be done: TTP, HIV, HCV, BASAL, Hbs, Glycaemia, Urea, Serum Creatinine, Full blood count, VDRL, Hematocrit, Blood type.

I am also purchasing my vitamins that I will begin taking today: Iron, Vitamin C 500mg, Folic Aid 10mg, B 12 vitamin, Hydrolyzed Collagen plus vitamin C. The Collagen wasn't suggested to me by either of the doctor's, I just decided try it because it's really good for the skin, hair and bones.

Well that's it for now, the best to all of you ladies in and recovering from surgery.

Green Light..from my primary doctor!

Hi ladies, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I had my complete physical and complete blood work taken care of. I stand corrected on my height physical says I'm 5" 5 and a little over a half feet tall. I am still holding the weight of 160lbs. I still want to gain maybe 5 more. So I am good health wise to go through all procedures I'd like. My Hemo is 13.3 and everything else is high as well a little above the normal range. My bad cholesterol is only 4points over and the normal range is 200, that is the only bad score I had which isn't that serious.

I don't eat breakfast or lunch regularly on any given day, so I'm going to say that the vitamins I take daily is the reason for the great score on the blood work. I'm waiting on my pap results to come back to make sure I am 100% healthy. I am doing this for my own sake, I had surgery 10 years ago due to pre cancer cells in my cervix. If that is normal then I will be
making my deposit this month to secure my date...I hope everyone is healing good and that them in surgery have a successful one.

Date for surgery is done, on to the next step!

Hi ladies so I received a email from Yily the other day the day that I want to have my surgery done is available and I am now down for that date. February 10th I plan to stay a total of 8 days. I have not picked out a RH as of yet, however I did express my needs, wants and concerns in a RH for my stay. She suggested the RH that is opening in January based off my request. She sent me a second email right after she confirmed my requested date with the information on the RH and a few pictures of the outside and the rooms which by the way have their own bathrooms in them. You can opt to have a room to yourself @ $85 a day or a 2 bed room @ $75 a day or an 3 bed room @ $65 a day. You may bring someone with you who will not be having surgery and they can stay with you for and additional $50.

The prices includes # meals a day, a bathroom inside your room, nurses, security and round trip from the airport and back, plus to the clinic for post-op appointments. Now based off the pictures sent to me via email it looks very clean and classy. It is nicely decorated windows to let in good old fashioned sunshine being you will be in that room often I think having windows is a plus. The colors are nice and bright which I also like because it gives a sense of energy which I think is also important when it comes to recovering. I am a little old school and I am a earth sign so I love nature and feel that if your senses are pleased then the mind will be more at ease which will result in a nice experience and good healing. Now I do not know if it has wi-fi or cable but I will find out. I think that I am going to stay their for my eight days, I hope the food will be as nice as the place look, and that the care and professionalism will be just as great as it looks.

So I plan to fly out on the 9th just haven't decided on if I want to be in the DR in the day or night time flying in on the 9th. Surgery will be the 10th and I plan on flying home on the 18th which will be the 8th day after surgery. I have lost a few pounds so I will be eating my self silly from this month on. I wish all the ladies who are having surgery by other doctors the best and a safe recovery. That's all for now, see you ladies soon with flight info after I get more info about the new RH.

Merry Christmas!!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and may we all get the hips, breasts and @$$ we want for 2014!

Info on the new recovery house

I just received a email from Dra Yily, she has confirmed that the recovery house does have WiFi, cable television, and running hot water. Massages are $30 each.

Final decision on procedures I will have done with Dra Yily

Hello ladies, so I've decided to not have my breast done this time around. since I will be having aggressive Lipo, tt, bank, fat transfer to hip/buttocks and I've decided to have my lips done. I have seen a couple pairs that Dra Yily has done with fat transfer and she is skilled in that as well. I've always wanted a fuller set of lips to kiss with.

I plan on having my breast and nose done latter this year at the same time. So I will speak with her about that again when I see her in February. Yes I am addicted to changing things and haven't even had my first experience yet lol.

I am still undecided on a RH, but I have received lots of information on the new RH. The website is nicely put together, and I have spoken with the owner a couple times via email on Saturday, she was very quick to respond back to me and was helpful in suggestions on staying time. I am leaning towards her because she is also a Doll, and who else than another doll is best at knowing what you will go through and need.

ugh...New job first or surgery first?

Hi ladies, so I've been thinking that maybe I should change my date with Dra Yily to after the 13th. I am doing this with tax return and of course as we all know the IRS isn't processing any return until the 31st if I'm not mistaken the 2014 refund schedule is out now and if your return is accepted and processed by or on the 31st you could get your refund on the 5th with direct deposit, the next refund date for deposit is the 12th by direct deposit if this is a legit refund schedule that is.

ok next possible reason for me to push my date back is that I received a call for a interview today the 1st for a assistant manager position. sigh..I guess if I accept it I would have to wait another two months before getting the surgery to allow myself time on the job before saying by the way I need to take two weeks off. only down fall my quote could change in that time frame. Idk, I want both the job and my surgery next month.I'm going to pray on it abd follow my heart on this.

Moving forward supplies

Hi ladies, I called and spoke with Samira this morning. She is very nice and does speak excellent English to relay messages to dra Yily and her staff. I spoke with her to let her know that I have decided to go with the BA with out implants and to make sure my quote was for this or if it was including the implants.

She asked for my email address and quickly looked up our emails and said that dra Yily quoted me with out implants I said great. I asked her if the list of items to bring with me stated in my email would be all I needed to bring with me. I do not think nor want to travel with a lot of thing's I will not use or need. She laughed and said no,no all you need is what is stated in the email and you may want to bring a pillow or two because of the butt being very sore for the first few days.

I spoke with her about the recovery house stay and that I haven't made up my mind, she suggest I stay at the new RH "Deluxe Recovery" she will be taking care of setting things up with them, she simply asked me to provide her with my full name, the room type I want ( 1,2 or 3 beds), the start date and the last day I will be there. I have posted info on this RH earlier and have added a couple pictures.

I went out to Wal-Mart today and picked up my supplies, it's very simple and all that is truly needed during your stay of 7-10 day's for any surgery you are having done. My supply list as of now: Tooth brush, 2 travel size toothpaste and mouth wash, 2 travel size deodorants, 2 pairs of warm fuzzy socks, tooth brush holder, 2 small bottles Hibiclens, 3 packs of 80 count fragrance free baby wipes, 2 packs of kotex 44 count long super pads, Chap stick, 2 packs of feminine wipes, I brought a second set of vitamins because I have been taking them on a regular so more Vitamin E, Iron 65mg, B 100 complex, Vitamin C, and I still have a lot of Folic Acid left. I also brought 2 boxes of Geritol Liquid Energy Support that I will start taking daily along with the other vitamin's the third week of this month or I will start taking the Geritol the week of my period and after my period. The reason I brought the Geritol Liquid is because my period comes on the last week of the month and runs a good 6 days. Being my surgery date is the 10th I want to make sure that I have the extra Iron in my system so I can have all procedures done. 1 pkg of mens medium white wife beater's 8 in a pkg at Wal-Mart, Three maxi dress, and a nice over sized shirt and pair of jogging pants to fly back home in. With looking at all I have it should fit in one large carry on bag if placed right.

The other items that we see on the pages of our fellow sisters is not needed at day 1-10. I have purchased however most of those items as well but they will be staying home for me to use once I am home. I may bring with me a case of drinking water though.

Well back to this course work I have a final group project due next week. I also filed my taxes this morning for those of you who are like me.. paying for this with a part of the return. * If you do it online E-File you will get your return a lot faster. I have always done mine through Turbo tax for three years now. The IRS might accept and process some returns starting as early as the 28th of Jan the latest the 31st of Jan. They did this last year as well they started a day or two early than the date they stated they were. So it's possible..If your return is accepted and processed on or before the 31st of this month you can expect your return in your bank account by the 5th of Feb, if it is accepted after the 31st you can expect it around the 12th of Feb. I was told that Feb is all booked solid for Dra Yily. I'm crossing fingers that mine will go through with the first batch they pull to process.

Well that's all for now ladies, have a blessed one.

Pictures of RH "Deluxe Recovery"

May be changing plans all the way across the board!!

Ok ladies, so my oldest child who is 19, I have four children total only three live at home. Ok back to what's going on. So my oldest child calls me last night with her soon to be hubby on the line. She forgot that they were to take a weekend trip the weekend of valentines day, well this puts me in a bind, as she was to watch her brothers and sister for me. So I have to change my surgery date to a latter day in the month. Well being I know that Dra Yily is booked solid the month of February:( I will not be having this done maybe till March and I don't want to wait till March.

I want to have this done this hands down in February, because I want to be healed by April 26th for my birthday. So with that being said I may need to cancel my appointment with Dra Yily, and go with a different doctor. I have as of today reached out to another doctor who is not as well known as dra Yily, this doctor is a male doctor here in the states. I must say so far I'm getting good vibes about him and his staff. I called the office spoke with a lady asked about the bbl, and she tried to reach the doc then he was on the other line, she took my contact info and said she will have him to call me back today.

Well a hour latter I get a call from the clinic and it's the patient coordinator, very nice man by the name of Abner. He asked what I had in mind, I explained what I was looking for he asked me to send pictures, and said that he and the dr. will go over the pictures to see if I will be a good candidate for the procedures. He stated that once they have them he will call me back and we can discuss what the doc feels will be best for me.

Got a call from Abner a hour and a half latter, he said that the doctor said that I am the perfect canidate for what I want done, skin tone, health wise and that my body structure is what's needed.. so I told him ok well I'm looking for a hour glass shape full curvy hips, flat stomach, small waist line, great waist to hip ratio, and a nice full, projecting round bubble butt with out the shelf look. I let him know I was to have m breast done as well.

So he asked me to send another email of my wish picture to give him an idea of what I like, how ever the doctor himself has a vision of what my results would be already, he said that i will have great results but he wants to see what I like and want, because after all it's what I want.

So I sent him the wish pictures of Njprbeauty..I explained what I liked and that I only want the fullness and projection that is right for my body type. He said ok that the doc will review them and look at my pictures and again and let me know if I will be able to achieve the wish pictures or not. He did say that the doc wants to do my BA 6 weeks after the lipo, tummy tuck and bbl, with transfer to hips. He stated that he will not do the breast with the other procedures because of the amount of lipo that will be done. So I am waiting on a return call to go over the quote. Once I have all the information I will update and give you ladies full details.

Changed surgery date with Dra Yily!!

Ok ladies, so I have figured things out now. I am simply rescheduling my date, I prayed on it and asked God to please allow Dra appointment book have an opening, a cancellation or something. The doctor I mentioned in Miami isn't worth it ladies, it's like a sales team with them I swear it is..Let me give you all the info just in case you were thinking about or know someone who is thinking about going to Miami to see a doctor at Vainty in Miami.

Ok so they have several surgeons like any other cosmetic facility right, one of the top being Dr. Jonathan Fisher. Well I called spoke with Abner who says that he is the coordinator for the doctor. He says to send pics. I did he called me back went over pics and that they can only take out 2000 cc's in any patient at a time per surgery. So I was like "in my head" uhh what does this mean I asked him. He said that I can have one surgery or the other, then come back in 6 weeks to have my breast done.

I told him, so your saying I can have the lipo and bbl, or the lip and tt, or the breast lift done but not all three or even two. He said yes. So he picks up o my vibe of..this isn't going to work out for me. Then he flips into this sales man roll, lie to you not...He goes in on saying my name constantly as he says well this is the best part, the best thing for you, now keep in mind that you are going to look great, and that you will look wonderful, the doctor will defiantly give you your desired results for your body. His words also.. Now here's the thing prices went up this morning since I've spoken with you on all procedures, I didn't know this when we first spoke, but this is what I am going to do for you because we were speaking before the change I am going to give you the lipo and bbl for $4,950, now when you are ready in a few weeks your breast lift will be $5,310 Before he could even go into how much the tt would be I cut him off.

I told him thank you for his time but i will be staying with my Dr from the DR. He then says well how much do you have to put down for the deposit today, I can work something out I just need to get you in the system and when your time comes I'll go in and take care of you. I'm like are you serious right now. I told him no thank you. Ladies being someone who have worked in sales before I knew darn well he was trying to pull a sale on me, which I think was stupid on his part. I was calling in to get information and a quote you didn't need to try an sell me or try to make it seem as if you will work something out for me.

Any ways. I called Dra. Yily's office and asked for Samaria I was told she does not work their..hmm ok well i asked if I could speak with the person who speaks English and handles the appointments, I was told that would be Yira.. So I spoke with her and she asked what date was I set for I told her the 10th of next month, she asked me what date did I want to change it to, I let her know that i want it in February but latter in the month. She looked through the appointment's and said I can put you in for the 21st. I said thank you so much and she kinda laughed after hearing the relief in my voice :)

So I am staying with my first choice Dra, Yily, and will be having surgery on the 21st of Feburary. I am 160lbs as of this morning, So that is cool the extra time gives me from this week til the 21st to pick up some weight. Goal a 1lb. to 2lbs. a week. yes you can gain a pound to two pounds a week. I will explain how latter today for those who are trying to gain weight.

I feel so much better now.. happy girl I am!

Website to to figure out ho many calories a day you need in order to pick up weight

Hi ladies, so i found this website that has a calorie calculator that will tell you what your required calorie intake should be based off your weight. You enter info such as your height, age, current weight. Then you select the amount of exercise you get daily. This will tell you how many calories a day you should consume to keep your current weight.

Now if you look further down the page it will also tell you that if you want to loose weight you should decrease your required calories by 500 per day, and that if you want to increase your calories you should consume an extra 500 calories a day in addition to your required calorie intake.

You should gain a pound a week if you consume your required calorie count and the additional 500 per day. If you want to gain two pounds a week then you can try doubling up the calories you need to take in daily. Website:http://www.my-calorie-counter.com/Calorie_Calculator.asp#

So using myself as a example, my daily requirement is 1,790 calories multiple that by 7 days in a week I should consume a total of 12,530 calories weekly to stay at 160 pounds. Now if I want to gain one pound a week I should consume an extra 500 calories a day, now times that by 7 days a week and that gives me a total of 3,500 calories extra to consume a week. Same thing applies if you want to loose a pound a week then you will decrease your calorie into by 500 a day resulting in 3,500 a week.
I like to use this site for meal ideas other than what I normally cook. The site is great because each recipe shows the amount of calories. http://allrecipes.com

Have a blessed one!


I just got this email from dra Duran. Now I don't know if her email has been hacked or if someone is using her email that shouldn't be, or if my email has been compromised. This was sent to me a few minutes ago.

Subject: Need Help

Sorry for the inconvenience, I am in Limassol, South Cyprus for a week
and i just got robbed and my bag containing all my vital items, phone
and money stolen from me . I am physically ok and fine. I need some
assistance from you. Let me know if you can be of any help.

Have any of you received this email from dra Duran? what do you ladies think is going on? I'm worrying now!

I don't think Dra Duran would be asking me for help..?

nding me a message asking for help...? I am going to compare the email address to the one that her and I was responding to back and forth on the surgeries to see if its any difference in the emails. But why would her picture show up it it wasn't her real email address. All the doctors have a picture that shows with there email address with the latest gmail settings for your Gmail account. I think I'm going to call her office tomorrow to see what's going on!

The IRS has accepted my return 3hours ago.

I knew they were going to do as they have the year before. I received a email stating that your federal return has been accepted by the IRS. However they are not processing returns until the 31st.

This means that they are pulling returns that have been submitted already, they have reviewed and approved them, and placed them in a Que to be processed on the 31st. I have told some close friends of mine as well so that they can try to get in the first batch. I called and spoke with a IRS rep to verify my email and was told that the way (TurboTax) I file my taxes is actually one of one's that can submit the return the fastest to be accepted. If you have never tried TurboTax give it a run, I've never had a problem come up, and I get all my credits, and deductions doing it by myself. I played only like $49.00, which they will deduct from your return. way cheaper than paying Someone at H&R Block, Liberty Tax and other like places. Just wanted to share something different with you ladies..still sending out prayers and positive Windows to those who are recovering and those stepping into the surgery room!

Ok back to my surgery adventure...

I am now 165lbs, I am getting, excited, a little scared, anxious, and u keep looking at myself in the mirror then find myself smiling so hard. I can't wait to see and be the thicker, sexier, more confident me!
I have told my dad about me going to have a tt in the DR, who is a Minister by the way..at first he was like all you need to do is work out,I told him that doesn't get rid of the loose skin from having his grandchildren. He then said well sounds like to me you have your mindset, go for it if it is what you want. :-)

Typos from my phone..sorry!

I really dislike posting from my cell phone. My oldest has suggested that I get a Windows phone, nd stop being cheap. lol, I may look into it, I am over my words being changed when sending messages.

Once it called a friend a hoe, called someone's baby a monkey, and I could go on. Good thing friends and family have played with this thing, and have seen it for themselves how it changes up words on you. It also has a three to four second delay when speaking on the phone.

Voice mail message from Vanity in Miami

Ok ladies, I mentioned how I felt asif iI was being sold a service and the rates of procedures from a rep aka Avnet who works for one of the doctors.

Well Abner called me yesterday, I couldn't answer, so he left a msg. The message said I know you were really looking towards the DR for your procedures really soon here, I just wanted to get in touch with you to let you know that I can definitely work something out here for you. Please return my call thank you and hope you are enjoying your weekend.

I also received a email advertisement about a filler procedure they are giving at a high discounted rate. Why am I being solicited...smh. I am calling that office tomorrow to ask that they do not call nor send me emails of services offered by them.

I am staying with Dra Yily 100% all the way. I might just even try to see her faster if I get my passport soon enough.

Getting Annoyed..if someone doesn't respond @ Dra Yily office today I will change my choice in a doctor!

I have called the office 4 times this morning to speak with Dra Yily's assistant to clarify rather or not she is now taking deposits to secure surgery dates.

The first time I called, I was placed on hold and a lady picked up told her I would like to speak with Yira, I was told hold on. I was placed on hold and no one came to the phone. I called back and asked if I could speak with someone who speaks English and if I could speak with Yira or Samira this time. I was transferred and someone picked up, I asked if she could let me know if Dra Yily was now taking deposits to secure your date, because I was told to book my flight and once I have it will be set in stone, however I was put down on her schedule for the 21st before hand. I didn't get her name because I'm not quite sure it was Yily's assistant, tone was different than who I have spoken with in the past. She had no idea..she asked me to hold on and said let me see. I sat on hold for minutes not two or three she didn't come back and I was disconnected/ call dropped.

I called back thinking ok the office is busy, no big deal maybe she will have gotten the answer for me. I called and said hi I was trying to get information about my surgery date, the receptionist said this time for which doctor? I said dra yily, she said ok her extension is 208, and hold on. Well the phone just wrong a few times and my call was dropped again, I am now thinking ok..is it my phone? or is it that they aren't answering or taking calls. I called a final time, this time put in the extension 208 and it just wrong.

If I don't get an answer to my question I'm changing doctors. I'm simply trying to verify what needs to be done at this point to secure my date for sure, rather it's sending a copy of purchased flight or a deposit. I have worked in a office at the administrative level for a little over two years, and this doesn't sit well with me at all. I am now looking into contacting the previous doctors I've received a quote from and looking into what their schedule looks like just in case. I will have this surgery regardless, it a matter of who is going to get my money. They need a voice mail system, and more structure in handling customer's questions and concerns especially when they are so close to having surgery.

Applied for My Passport today!

Hi ladies, well it's been nothing but rain today and still coming down. I went to my local clerk of court office this morning, took my passport picture, filled out the application, and paid my fees for expedited delivery. I watched the lady put it in the express card board envelope and she gave me lot's of motherly advice about not getting into cars with anyone in the DR unless I know them lol. I thought it was so cute, she is a big mama type of woman, much older than myself.

I told her yes mam, and then she says whatever you do in the Dominican Rpublic stays in the Dominican Republic, don't tell no one what you did, have lot's of fun, and if your going with friends you all fight together not against one another lamo.

She made me think of my grandmother who passed away 8 years ago. I just wanted to hug this lady.

I stopped by Wal-Mart afterwards for more supplies, and Big lots. I was able to find the Benadryl extra strength gel for $3.00 @ Big Lots, Wal-Mart sells the Chux pads in different sizes, L, XL, XML in 10&20 count bags. I picked up a XL 10 count bag $5.00 and some change, water pills, bacitracin $2.00 and some change, stool softener, omeprazole 20.6 mg, Mederma, fish oil pills, and castor oil (will explain the two oils latter).

I am ordering my antibiotics and another item needed in the list of meds stated by dra Yily online from a legit company my brother told me about, he has used them for a year now yo order his meds. He was in the military and started using and found out about the site then. I will end up needing to only buy two meds listed by Dra Yily, the shots, and the ronex.

I am also ordering my Lipo board, and Lipo foam today. Ok now to explain the fish oil pills and castor oil. I am also having fat transferred to my lips while I'm under. This type of transfer usually is only about 30% effective. The reason is because the lips move all the time, so the fat cells tend to be 're absorbed by the body and leaving you with maybe 30% of fat that took well. I have read that the fish oil and castor oil mixed together actually helps the fat in the lips to get more blood supply, plus the fish oil helps with swelling. So I am going to try this little mixture at before bed every day until surgery to see if it increase blood flow to the lips, if so then I plan to use it on my new plump lips to increase blood flow to help more of the transferred fat take.

I am picking up luggage today as well from Big Lots. I have a awful headache at this time so a nap is due. Talk to you latter ladies, and prayers to all the ladies having or recovering from one.

Update on the company I ordered my medications from :-)

Hi ladies, I just wanted to update you on the online store I've ordered my medications from. I placed my order yesterday, and received email confirmation that my order has been processed @ 8:47am this morning and that u will be receiving my tracking information soon to track my order. I did pay the extra shipping fee to receive my items within 7-10 days, the normal shipping time is 10-21days. My brother told me that he normally receives his order in two weeks by regular delivery.

I weighed myself first thing this morning before eating or drinking anything and I weigh 167 lbs. Have a great Sunday everyone.

Received my free Boppy Pillow

Hi ladies, I just wanted to let you all know that I received the Boppy Pillow today, pretty fast delivery time. I received my tracking # for the meds yesterday, and they are in transit. Now waiting on my passport, once received I will purchase my plane tickets. My brother is moving in tomorrow, showing him the ropes of getting the children to school. Everything is moving along nicely. Well wishes to all the ladies having surgery, and those who are recovering from surgery.
