33 Yrs 2 Kids...548cc Butt Implants with Fat Transfer!! - Dr Johnny Franco
So I put my deposit down today and booked my...
only 55 more days...
Also I consider my butt to be on the wide side :-/ so I'm concerned about the implants covering my entire cheeks.
Getting closer.....second thoughts
My husband and I have separated. I'm not sad about that but should I still go ahead will surgery? I picked the date so that I could have extra time off paid at work (Christmas and New Years Day). But now I think it would be in my best interest to postpone surgery. Also I am borrowing from my 401k to pay for it. I was about to request the check today then it got real and I chickened out. I really want this and will have it but is now the right time? I have an 18 year old son that will go with me and help me out while I recover.
I would just like some advice... or just tell me to do it and everything will be fine :)
And 1 more wish pic
16 more days...
So I am definitely going forward with the surgery. Thanks for all the encouragement. I'm really excited! I am a little worried about Christmas though. Right now in out of state for work teaching a 3 week training class. I will be back home on Dec 17 and my surgery is on Dec 21. I'm leaving on Dec 20 to drive down to Austin and will be back home on Dec 22. I have a lot of Christmas shopping and surgery preparation to do that weekend before. So that's what I am most stressed about right now. My 18 year old will be fine but I don't want to ruin my 6yr Olds Christmas because I want butt implants. Ya know?
Any suggestions on how to make prep easy or just what true necessities I will need is greatly appreciated.
P.S. my husband and I are moving forward with the divorce. I'll be ok though.
getting so close!
So today is Monday and my surgery is Wednesday... I have so much going on that i almost forget to be excited. I spent time this past weekend buying supplies. And i got a pretty nice walker at goodwill for $5! Not sure how necessary it will be but I couldn't beat the price. I also got lots of water and soup and naked fruit juices.
Post op update
I Thad surgery on the 22nd so I'm only 2 day post??? Omg time is passing so slowly. And boy am I in PAIN. This is for sure worse than my bbl pain. I finally slept for 3 straight hours last night. I've been taking my pain meds like clockwork too. And now my left cheek hurts more than my right. I'm going to give it another day or so.
My ass and hips are HUGE and my waist is small. I got some liposuction on my outer thighs so i think the swelling from that is adding to the fullness of my hips. I really hope it goes down cus i look more bottom heavy now. And not the way I wanted. But again only 2 days post so can tell much yet. I'll post picks later or tomorrow. About to take a pain pill now.
Dr. Franco is so sweet and really made me feel comfortable. I love him and his staff. Great bedside manner and patience.
Oh and that whole body positioning thing I bought is not necessary, I do recommend getting the face rest though. And putting a pillow under you tummy so that your body is at a slight angle while you lay. Let me know if you have any questions.
I went with the 548cc round and im glad i did. The 712 cc were just too big for my booty goal. ?
post op pictures... so far
My swelling and bruises are bad but I have always bruised very easily. And the swelling is going down little by little.
I only have a about 5 pain pills left and today I haven’t needed them as much. But i am still in pain but more stiff. If that makes sense :?
My butt cheeks are super tight and sore also. Please tell me when I will walk normal again ?
took last pain pill this morning
So I went to Walmart yesterday....
And I really hope it's all in my head and that I'm just being paranoid but...
I don't mind the stares... I mean heck I've stared at huge asses and still do probably. But one lady just gave me an outright dirty look. And in my head I was like "what the F is her problem?" Then I realized she's a hater!
I was in no way trying to call attention to myself. I was wear sweatpants, long sleeve shirt and sandals. No makeup, hair in ponytail and glasses.
Can you please give me some advice? Or tell me to calm down and it's all in my head
There was 2 dudes that literally followed me around two isles. No biggie right? 2 times
Going back to work :,-(
*UPDATE* Day 1 back at work
It's been a while...... who remembers that song?
My butt looks good. My bruises are about 95% gone. I can walk fine for the most part. And my implants don't feel so foreign anymore. They just feel like pressure and sore. Like I did a ton of squats with heavy weights. Feel free to ask me questions. I'm post a couple pics from today. Pictures do not do justice.
I measured myself before surgery and around my butt was 40 inches. I wish I took a picture of that. Oh well
Draggin a wagon
I just love reading everyone's reviews and all of the positive support we give. Makes me happy:)
So my butt feels so heavy! Still not sitting... only to take my son to and from school and that's less than two miles away. Sometimes I walk to get him though. I use a rolled up yoga mat so sit on in my car. I like that better than the bbl buddy.
Also I've noticed A lot of my swelling gas gone away and volume went with it :( oh well... some girls say that their butts got bigger again after two months post. And then others say there is no such thing as "fluffing". I'm confused and wondering which is true...
Went to Austin and....
DIY Booty Pillow
I scoot my seat all the way back when I get in. This allows me to have plenty of room to get all situated then I scoot back up so I can reach the pedals once I'm nice and comfortable.
It's cheap and works great. I hope you all enjoy :)
I've had a few people ask if you can see the outlines of my implants. I had mine placed subfacial. I can't see or feel the edges of the implants but the center of my butt cheeks is still tender and firm. They no longer feel like rocks under my skin and I can sit much better. I don't have to stand up at the bar when I go out to eat anymore. Recovery is still going well.
The best plastic surgeon I've ever had.... and I've had several. Recovery is awful but I have no regrets and would do it all over again. I love you Dr Franco!! Also want to compliment the staff. All of his girls have been so sweet and supportive. Especially Liz :)
