Hey ladies near and far. It's LovieJ and I am finally, after 5 years of research, consults, and looking at countless butts, ready to take that step!! I WANT TO BE A DURAN DOLL!!!! I found Dr. Durans info and she is my surgeon of choice. Wouldn't you all agree that her work is Stellar! ! Anyway, I'll be posting my questions, concerns, comments, and pics on here so please follow me and give me any info that you can. I have my deposit and I have emailed her but I have not yet gotten a response. If there is any contact info on Dr. Duran or Elizabeth please share it with me. I want to stay at Angies Recovery House as well. I'm so excited!! Much Blessings, lovieJ.

Hoping to hear from the best!!

I still have not heard from Dr. DURAN. I'm not giving up. I really want her services.

I HAVE MY DATE AND I AM READY TO GO!!!! #FUTUREDURANDOLL

Hi everyone. i know its been a while since i have been on here. Since my last post, i have a date schedules June 20th 2016, I am nervous, but ready, I even had second thoughts and have been looking for docs in the states, but no one can compare to Dr. Duran. I contacted Angie's Recovery House, but she has not responded yet. I paid my deposit and all. I have a lot of people telling me not to go over seas, but I try to block out the negative energy and PRAY and trust in GOD. I need a SX buddy for sure, and if anyone is willing please let me know. ALL THE BEST DOLLS!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO GET SNATCHED!!!!

EPIDURAL????? WHY???

HI LOVES. I HOPE EVERYONE IS DOING WELL AND GETTING READY TO GET SNATCHED FOR THE SUMMER BY OUR LOVELY DRA. DURAN. I JUST HAVE ONE QUESTION. WHY IS SHE GIVING US EPIDURALS????? IS THIS SOMETHING THAT SOME OF YOU ARE REQUESTING? I DID HAVE ONE WHEN I GAVE BIRTH, BUT I CAN NOT SEE WHY IT IS NECESSARY TO HAVE ONE FOR LIPO AND FAT TRANSFER. PLUS HOW CAN THEY MOVE YOU ALL AROUND FROM SIDE TO SIDE AND OVER ON YOUR STOMACH WITH THAT IN YOUR BACK? IM VERY NERVOUS ABOUT THAT PART OF IT BECAUSE I KNOW THE RISKS THAT COME WITH THE EPIDURAL. CAN SOME OF MY SISTERS OUT THERE HELP ME WITH UNDERSTANDING THIS QUESTION PLEASE?

Real Self Chewed me out about using all caps!! really??!!!!. >:(

Hi ladies. i was sent a message from Real Self advising that i need to stop typing in all caps because you all are offended by it. i let her know that i fully understand netiquette, and in no way have my words ever been harsh or rude. Sometimes my computer system here at work is set on caps, other times i am really excited about our journeys. all in all i hope that i have not offended anyone on here. you all know that i am one of your biggest supporters. from now on i will not use any caps to avoid being kicked off of the site. hope you ladies are still doing great!! love you all!!

April 20th Marks Exactly 2 Months from SX!! I am So Excited!!!!

Hi Loves. Well today is the official 2 month mark from my surgery. I am sooooo very happy. Like, i can't believe that the time is aproaching so fast. This is amazing. All of you have been so helpful and I really feel like we are the Sisterhood of the traveling Butts. lol. Anyway, i am just happy. Oh i also had a question. I am a singer (by the way, lol), and I am supposed to have a local show at a festival on the end of my 3rd week of recovery. Nothing major, just 3 or 4 songs and Im done. Do any of you think that I will be able to perform then. I am not a wild singer, I usually just stand, sort of like R&B meets Neo Soul. Please give your advice.

May 2nd and I am closer than ever now!!! I am so excited.

Hi Dolls. I hope everyone is doing well. I have been trying my best to keep up with everyone. I have been praying for you all and reading your journeys. I am so very proud of each of you!! Well I go for surgery next month and I am anxious, nervous, excited but most of all just plain ol Ready. lol. I hope you all are having a wonderful day!!

Hi Ladies, I need your encouragement.

Hi Ladies. I am 42 days away. Nervous, but excited, and constantly prayed up. Can someone reach out and hold my hand today? Thanks Dolls.

Why do people think the D.R. is such a bad place??!!

Hey Dolls. I am not even talking about SX purposes, but why do people cringe when you speak of the D.R. That mess burns me up. lol.

31 Days Until SX.

Counting Down.

URGENT MESSAGE TO ALL WHO FOLLOW ME

If you have anything negative to say about SX, my doctor, where I am going for SX or anything related to that, you need to stay off of my page altogether. My page is to encourage dolls and to provide support for me. If you are against my doctor, keep it to yourself. If you have had a negative experience, keep it to yourself. I have researched this for 5 years and i do not need any haters, or naysayers coming on here complaining about what went wrong for them, or how they are regretting their decisions, on here at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM VERY SERIOUS. Dismiss yourself and go be miserable somewhere else. NOT ON HERE. To all of my dolls who support me and who I support, we are in good hands, and GOD is in control. I love you all. So again, if you come on my page with anything negative, EXIT STAGE LEFT!!!!!!

On the way to the recovery house.

Hi dolls. I made it and im on my way to recovery house from the airport. All i can say is woah. Getting through customs was not bad. My driver was waiting right outside. And he and the other guy are taking me now. I am nervous. They don't speak English. Lawd D. I was blowing up Yasmin. Finally she called me from one of their phones to reassure me they were who they are. I'm a little relieved but the language barrier is no joke. Im going to take a good shower and be at Cipla by 6:30am. Ill update in a few hours. Keep checking on me dolls.

Surg was a success.

Hi dolls. Not talking long. This is no joke but everything is fine. Focusing on recovery. Ill updated fully soon. Love you all. Thanks for everything.

1 Month Post Op

HI Ladies. First of all i want to say that I have missed you all. My apologies for not posting in so long, but things have been like a roller coaster for me, physically and emotionally. Still all in all i am doing well. In a lot of pain, but doing well.n Whoooooo. This was and is no easy journey. Once you do this you are officially the strongest person alive. lol. I will say that my stay in the DR was amazing. From the services at CIPLA to Dra. Duran and her lovely staff, and to my supreme stay at Yasmines Recovery House. I Was Blessed. Three things. 1. CIPLA is clean, very modern, and very safe. The staff, and all professionals took care of me like royalty. I have no complaints about that. 2. My surgery was so smooth. Although they forgot to give me the blue pill (the nurse laid it on the dresser, but didnt tell me) I was calm, and as ease. The bed side manner was awesome and Dra. Duran was so warm and reassuring. She is so smart and thorough. She really made sure i was ok, and that she was on point with her work. She did an amazing job with me. and 3. My stay at Yasmines Recovery House was the best. A home environment with the most patient nurse and staff. Everyone there took their time with me and no one was rude or mean at all. The food was great, and i felt safe and at home. Now, i did get a burn on my side from the friction of the lipo. this is very normal. Duran was very prompt treating it, and now at one month it is just about healed up, just like she said. I used just about everything i took. I needed more wipes and gloves but that was all. I used Janita for my massages. She was the best. Currently I am still very stiff, sore, and tight. Getting two massages a week, drinking water, taking Bromalian, drinking pineapple juice, taking my vitamins, and about to take in my stage 2 faja and add more compression foam and boards. Recovery is no joke!!! Pain pills are a must!! Overall my experience was outstanding and i am more than happy with my choice. I met so many beautiful women and have formed some lasting relationships. As promised I have a before and after pic in the pink dress. Here you go. If you have any questions please ask away, if i forgot anything i will post it in the comments of this post. and i will show more pics later. Thanks for all of your prayers, and for being patient with me. Love you all, and i cant wait until you all are snatched!!!!!!!!

1.5 months post op.

Hi dolls!!!! Don't let the pic fool you, recovery is no joke. hardness, soreness, tightness, pain and the constant uncomfortable faja and the unbearable itching. all in all, i love my results. Wear your faja everyday and take recovery seriously. it will be the difference in your long term results!!!! here is a pic from my bday this past Monday

Still wearing FAJA

Hi ladies. just wanted to check in with you all. i hope you all are doing great. I am hanging in there. still sore and stiff and tight and itchy and hard, but im ok. i wear my faja every day allday long. no exceptions unless i am showering or washing it. this recovery is a journey. my feet are swollen again.(so tired of that) but i am trying my best to take care. i have lost 20 lbs since the beginning of my journey before sx. i hope you all are still encouraged and loving your new body. maybe ill do round 2 next year. just thinking. lol. peace.
