November 2012 I gave birth to my baby girl. She is absolutely perfect but unfortunately she did a little damage to my body. I have always been fit and comfortable with my body. I dread summer because I hate wearing shorts or tank tops because I hate the way I look in them. I NEVER dare going to the pool and the worst part of it, my husband has a hard time coping with my post baby bod. (he misses my perky boobs and flat tummy) SO I began my process in finding a plastic surgeon to give me that jump start and get my confidence back. I began looking here in Dallas TX for plastic surgeons, for what I wanted i was quoted nearly $18,000 which is way over our budget. I thought all hope was lost, one day my husband said "lets get you your surgery in the Dominican Republic." I laughed thinking it was a joke. NO WAY i am going to go to another country to get plastic surgery. it sounded so sketch. but the more we researched I got convinced it was legit and a good idea. My husband and I both are in the medical field, He is a nurse doing nurse anesthesia so he has some knowledge in the surgery process and the care required.
I started looking and found Dr. Nelson Rubio I sent him an email and he replied very quickly but wanted to charge me 8,000$ for breast implants, TT, and flank lipo. I was specific that i wanted a lift after talking to a harvard trained surgeon here in dallas he told me i really needed a lift or the implants will just sag down like my boobs are now.
I kept searching and found Dr. Walkiris Robles. I got an immediate message back from her assistant Laura. then a few days went by and I didnt hear anything.. So i began to worry. I looked Dr Robles up on facebook and messaged her. She told me to send pictures and the second I sent the pictures her and Laura called me and then sent me a Quote. I will post it right here:

"Tummy tuck + liposuction on waist, armpits, back + Brazilian Butt Lift + Breast Augmentation with lift"

So I was a little disappointed because I really want inner/outter thigh liposuction. and I never said I wanted a BBL but, I am not opposed to it seeming how my butt is FLAT. the only thing I dont want is a HUGE booty. I would like a little lift but not too much. I never thought of the Lipo on the arm pit but it will do a lot to make me look thinner. MY BIGGEST problem area are my love handles. I dont know why but my fat goes straight to my sides and love handles. it SUCKS! so she reassured me she will take care of that. I did have questions regarding the recovery house I really want to go to Virginias recovery house but she doesnt allow men and I am trying to get my husband to go with me. Has any one ever been to any of the other recovery houses that allow men? are they just as comfortable and good?
anyway I called Laura today to tell her I wanted the Leg lipo and she said that after Dr robles reviewed my pictures she thought i would look more proportional if I went with out it but if I realy want it she will do it. It will just be a matter of me talking with Dr Robles about my options when I get to the dominican republic for the labs and pre op visit. which bums me out because I want a plan like now.
I am conflicted as to how long I should stay in the dominican republic. I am a WIMP so my recovery will be painful. I definitely want to be there for atleast 10 days because i want the drains removed before I return back to the US. The surgeon I saw here in Dallas said that if i choose to go to the dominican Republic I need to stay for as long as possible because if a drain is left in or if i have complications almost no plastic surgeon here will help me here in the US because it is a liability. which was good to know. but worries me because if i return to the states and have a complication I will basically be shit out of luck.
anyway We are making the deposit now I just have to hash out the details of the recovery house and see if my surgery can be done March 16th instead of the 15th. waiting for a response i am extremely impatient and want to get everything sorted now.
Anyone going to be in the recovery house around the middle of march?
AHH I am so nervous but so excited to get my body back. Just praying my BBL doesnt make my ass huge because I know it is the dominican culture I will just have to emphasis that I do NOT want a big ol booty.. just a little lift cute round thing.
I will post my before pictures tonight. I am so excited.!
