Hey everyone. I love this website because I can find what I'm lookin for & people who feel just like me.
I'm 21, hairstylist make up artist, & I'm dying for this surgery lol..
In Houston there is a popular doctor by the name of Wilberto Cortes. He's the best I've seen, gives great results but I just cannot afford him.
I haven't been able to get approved for care credit & I don't have a regular credit card & if you don't use care credit you have to pay everything up front.
So I guess that means I need to travel because I won't have 10000 up front.... For this lol.
I need advice on what to do or other ways to pay for it or even cheaper doctors that will give me the same results. I'm so discouraged..
So I'm deciding on Miami!
It's been a while, I've been working on my credit but I doubt I'll even need it. I've found a couple of doctors in Miami for under 6000, but they're BEASTS at the BBL!
What else should I factor in besides recovery house cost/hotel costs & plane tickets?
What doctors do you ladies feel is better? I'm looking at Ortega & Fisher!?
I'll post my pics later.
I'm reading on & on & on..
The first thing I read are the lowest ratings.
Ortega has a few , some people had surgery & came out looking exactly the same. WHAT THE FUCK?
I'm really excited about this &although I know a lot of people may disagree bc of all the shit going on out there... Fuck off!
I'm choosing to go to the Dominican Republic for doctor Tania Medina & I'll say why.
Of course the price. She's only charging me 4550, recovery house included for 10 days, transportation to from &to the airport included Also.. This comes w one garment, one night at the hospital &a couple more things...
She responds to all of my emails in a timely manner, speaks English great, and can communicate efficiently with me! She's very sweet..
Her reviews are 5 stars. Everyone has somethin. Good to say about her.
I'm starting to believe she's like the "doctor Miami" of the Dominican Republic .
She's in Dominican Republic !
Lol now nothing's wrong w this except ive never been there but luckily for me, the recovery house will allow guests for $55 a night. So I guess it's not a con at all :-P
I'm going to have to lose probably about 5-8 pounds. I think my bmi is 1 too many. BUT it's on! I'll be making my deposit as soon as she emails me back :)
Btw she also quoted me $5000 to do a bbl AND add on a breast augmentation.
What do you ladies suggest? Would that be defeating the purpose? I won't be able to lay on my stomach or back so how would that work?
Don't judge my pics, i look horrible naked ????
Go check out Tania medina everyone.
I'm sure I said her name in my last post but seriously. she's the reason is rather travel to dR than Miami.
I wanted to go with doctor Miami but he's booked until feb next year & I want my surgery done this winter before my birthday. He's also about 3GS more expensive & that doesn't cover the recovery house.. I'm weighing my own options, yours might be different
Medinas before & afters are amazing!!
Check out doctor fisher..
All his new specials made me look at him.. (6000 bbl w/recovery house included) .. They also keep calling me lol.. But then I realized he has some horrible reviews.. Bullshit! Lol
SCARED AS HELL! What to do!? 3 months until surgery.
Okay so I have 3 months to go until surgery. But I have no clue what I should be doing or what type of pills to get?
Tania medina says to eat healthy &I make sure I take my vitamins & iron pills. I haven't been doing that, what brand do you ladies suggest?
She also gave me a list of things I'll need to bring, is there anything your doctor didn't tell you but u realize u needed?
I'm getting my passport this month!
At first I was all tough & now I'm getting nervous ????
December 14th, surgery buddy!!!
Anyone going in December? I chose this date bc I live in Texas & I don't want to be hot & sweaty ass hell with the girdles on under everything I wear.
Anyways! Lol any takers!?
Want to change to doctor Cabral ?
I'm loving the pictures I'm seeing but apparently he doesn't have a real self account anymore? That's scary...
I MADE IT! BBL REVIEW ONE DAY POST OPP
Medina is the shit! Period point blank .
Her clinic is everything! So clean & everybody is soooo sweet!
So I'll start from the beginning . Bc as many reviews as I read, that's what I wanted each one of them to do lol
I came out here by myself. I was nervous & scared as hell but I held it together bc I didn't ant my family & friends to worry so I made myself not worry .
I had no clue what I was doing but I made sure to stay alert & watch my surroundings .
I landed in the dr at 1am
Got my bag, went thru customs & filled out paper work (they give this out on the plane or u can get it at the airport)
$10 for travelers card
I walked out of baggage claim & it was literally a party lol, people were waiting on their families & George was waiting for me!
He is soooo sweet & welcoming cause lord knows I had no clue what to expect
He Took me straight to clinic & I showered & went to sleep Bc he told me he was picking me up for 7am
Woke up 7am to take xrays
Brought me back to clinic did blood work filled out forms & paid for surgery
I did half card , half cash so don't worry about having to carry around a bunch of cash . Just make sure u have enough cash for extras
Changed into surgery gown shoes & hat & waited .
This is where I literally bust out crying like a little kid. I started to realize that this shit is really happening & my crazy ass is really out here alone. I cried & prayed my worry away until I fell asleep .
Medina came in maybe a hour later , 12pm & took before pictures & asked me what I wanted . She's realistic but I told her I want every ounce of fat to be put in my ass lol
She left & another hour passed & they brought me to the operating room .
I was drowsy from the blue pill & fluids so I really don't remember anything except for getting naked & laying on the operating table .
Very clean & nice
They put the mask over my face & I just drifted away!
NOW. Thus was one of my worries. It was scary & weird at the same time.
I woke up during lipo! I heard medina say "stay tuned this doll will be gorgeous" (for her snapchat) lol I was numb as hell, but I could feel the stick going in & out & I remembered reaching for somebody telling them to give me more fucking anesthesia cause I really thought I was up for good lmfao child I fell right back asleep. BUT I'm feeling that this is normal & nothing was wrong so it was just a weird scary cool experience .
Iwokeup in my hospital bed & literally was like.. "What the hell did I just do" lol the pain is not at all excruciating it just feels heavy & really sore. I was in my hospital given faja, little bit of bleeding . I could not really move, she did lipo of my entire back & top & bottom abdomen . So I laid there thinking , so happy & proud.
Then I realized omg I'm on her snap chat !!!!!!!!!
So I go look & that's what I started calling EVERYBODY ???????? anyways this was around 630pm.
I didn't eat or drink until 10 & that made my stomach hurt worse but once I ate I felt better. The nurse slept w me all night constantly checking
My drain had gotta loose so it wet the bed . She took me out the bed & I was okay until she was done cleaning & I had to stand up again . I literally felt like I was about to pass out . I hurried as fast as I could cause I didn't want to pass out on the floor , the nurse was solo helpful . I fell right back asleep
I am up now & it is 630, everyone has come to check on me. Even medina . She said after dinner tonight I will try to walk again & if I faint then I will need a blood transfusion . I'm praying against that because that is $200+ that I do not want to spend . Although I was a little overweight , I've always been healthy . Never been hospitalized, diseased, allergic to medicine, low blood or anything. So with my busy schedule I did not ever take the medicines prescribed before coming out here. I don't think it made a difference too much, I could've stood to take the vitamin c though & I heard blood transfusion is rare in these cases so just pray for me y'all!
Anyways I'm tired of laying down on my back .. Yes my back . Hopefully this isn't making my booty flat . It definitely feels heavier & I forgot to say that the reason my drain came a loose was because when I woke up I panicked & then a doctor came in & was like no! Turn back over lmao. Idk why I have to be on my back, I thought that was defeating the purpose but I guess I should trust them . He said "wow how did u even do that? You're a strong girl." Lol
Also, I have stretch marks everywhere on my stomachs. Medina wanted me to get a tummy tuck bc she thought there would be loose skin but I'm young with no kids so I determinedly said no. My skin should be able to bounce back, stretch marks or not. I have no extra skin like most people think u will have after fluctuating with weight & fat & now lipo so ladies go with your gut instinct. Don't do something u don't need to do. They can advise u but u know your body best. Granted I would have more of the hour glass shape I wanted if I would've gotten it, I'm still glad I didn't. This is enough pain for one trip, I'm ready to go home! lol
Ugh I don't want healthy food!
I don't really have a appetite but I don't really want this either if I did lol
In my faja
Love . I also have pads on unseat he so u can't really see the curves
The clinic .
Beautiful as hell. I fell in love.
