To begin with, I had gastric sleeve surgery in 2009 in Md. I went from 346 to 140; losing 200 pounds over the course of 5 years which left me with a whole lot of sagging skin. Because I spent the vast majority of my adulthood as a plus size women I was an expert at camouflaging the negatives and accentuating the positives pertaining to my body but in reality my body resembled a 90 year old women when I stood naked:( and i was tired. I began search locally in Md. I needed the works, breast aug with implants, tummy tuck, arm-lift, thigh lift, and bbl with fat transfer to butt and hips. I went to about five different Doctors in the states including Dr. Jimmerson in Atlanta. Of course I was told I could not get all the work done at once, I would have to divide the surgeries into at least two, the upper portion and lower portions. The prices I was quoted here in the states were not obtainable for me. I than begin to talk to friends about my concerns and was told about the services that was provided in DR. I got quotes from Cabral, Baez, Almonte,Robles and Yily. Almonte had the best price and communication hands down but I was not confident she would be able to give me the Butt I wanted because at the time that was my main focus!!!! I wanted a butt from the Gods and everything else was a secondary priority to me. I arrived in the DR on august 11 and I personally went to the office of Baez, Cabral and Yily. I was escorted around by the staff at my recovery house: Tropical Recovery Deluxe. The owner's name is Ruth Pinenetel ***-***-****/whatsupapp: ***-***-****/*******@***.com.
I will be writing separate review about my recovery house because lord knows they deserve it!!!! They were AWESOME!!!!!! as i stated before i wanted to go with Cabral but he was 2000 more than everybody else for a total of 8000 which did not include my stay in the recovery house. This quote for bbl, tummy tuck and breast lift with implants. my next choice was Yily because based on her reviews she appeared to be the one who could deliver after Cabral the waist line and Butt I was dying to have. i did have some concerns with the reviews on breast yily had performed. i did not find one set of breast that included implants online that i was comfortable with her work that was posted without implants were beautiful to me but those with did not look asymmetrical to me. that was frightening, which is why i met with all the other Dra once i arrived in the DR. because time was a factor, I was only scheduled to stay for 11 days and id wasted one already i decided to go with yily but expressed my concerns on her breast work to see what her take was on the topic. Yily is very straight forward and Honest, she petty much says what she means and means what she says. she stated that she does not post many before and after herself and it is a good possibility that the pictures posted are jobs that are just out of surgery and the implants have not have proper time to settle. She stated she was totally confident she could do the breast aug without complications and they would be beautiful. So I decided to go with Yily. I am happy with my choice.
I feel like Yily gave me a new start at lifeJ. Yily was very sweet. She greeted me with a hug on every appointment. Her staff is very attentive to your needs and answered all questions. At my first post op appointment with Yily she stated she was not happy with the results from my arms and she would revise them when I came back to get my thighs lifted. I was ok with my results. I stil have a little loose skin but after years of hating my arms I finally felt as if I could show them. So I will allow her to make the revision but I was totally fine with how they turned out. Initially I had fluid in my breast and one swelled larger in size than the other. This occurred after I returned to Md. I was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital By Dr. Rosso. He stated based on what he could see, Yily had done an excellent job on surgeries and he knows how difficult it can be when you are not in the same town as your surgeon so he would be happy to help me with recovery. I was given an mri to make sure that my implant had not ruptured and they also drain some of the fluid from my right breast. They said the fluid drained was not infected at all and that the fluid is my body’s natural response to have a foreign object place in it. The surgeon stated it would have happened no matter where I had the surgery done because it was my body’s immune system kicking in and trying to protect the tissue surrounding my breast. After about two weeks by breast were asymmetrical, pain free, round, plump and beautiful!!! My stomach is still a little swollen and ahs a little fluid but I do not wear my faja like I’m suppose to because I purchased faja that was suppose to support my whole body as I thought I would be getting a bbl and lipo but I did not have enough fat and I had too much excess skin. So I need more of a waist trainer which I will be purchasing this week.
