Happy bday BBL
Im wanting a breast lift, a Brazilian butt lift,...
Doctors in mind
So, I finally met with Dr. Hsu today! Everyone in the office seemed to be professional and caring. His main assistant Yajaira, was very helpful and beautiful herself. Everyone was attractive, from the doctor to the staff members... now I'm not superficial in any way, but if I'm going to pay someone to beautify me, then I'm going to need everyone to look right. Lol! The office was very well kept and clean.. until my friend (sx buddy) and I showed up with our 2 one year olds! Sorry!! - anyways back to the doctor - I got really good vibes from dr.hsu (unlike dr.cortes). He was very knowledgeable and listened to my thoughts and concerns. I kept trying to add procedures to my list, and he told me what i do and don't need.. unlike some doctors who push you to do everything just to make a buck. I'm about 100% sure I'm going to schedule with him for my breast lift and bbl. Now I just have to decide if I want to do the procedures together or separate.

Loss of volume?
Maybe I got lucky? I don't know.. but I don't remember being in that much pain or needing so many supplies and vitamins like everyone else. I took oxycodone for 3-4 days after surgery.. then Tylenol for day or two..
I bought my supplies on Amazon and target, and I bought my booty buddy pillow on Offer up for $50. I spent LESS than $150 on everything. I got 50 abd pads and I used ALL of them.. I should have gotten more, but it's because I leaked ALOT whereas my friend is not leaking at all.. so it differs. (Picture shows supplies but is missing the Cetaphil antibacterial soap I bought). I did however purchase both fajas through the doctors office.
I have a small sedan and a full size truck, and we took the car to day of surgery. I laid across the backseat the way home (make sure you take a blanket or towels). The next day I went to a massage and I laid in the back seat again... by day 4 or 5 I was good to sit up, so we took the truck, and I just kneed on the back floor (so my elbows and head were resting on the back seat). That is currently how I ride around most of the time. Just posting up in the back of the car/truck floor on my knees. I use my booty pillow for my knees so they don't hurt. I really haven't "sat" down anywhere... for Mother's Day we went out to eat and I sat in a chair for about an hour but I sat on the edge and was basically on my thighs only. I'm not a big fan of the booty pillow and I kinda feel like it was a waste of money.
I also feel like some of my supplies were a waste too. I used the arnica cream & gel for a day, and that's when I started itching (refer to earlier post) and so I stopped taking the pills and everything else arnica related just in case. I haven't been taking any supplements or teas or vitamins.. maybe I should start, but I think my tummy is pretty flat for now.
I had 5 professional massages the first 2 weeks after surgery. 3 of those were done the first week. My husband has given me 2 massages since Marlen has been having to leave town, and he alone has helped with the knots.
I recommend getting a stool softener, and making sure you go poop before surgery! It took me 5 days to have a bowel movement after surgery and it was the most pain throughout this whole experience! I literally thought I was giving birth out of my butt!! My mother had to come over with a suppository in order for me to go. Hovering over the toilet and being constipated is not a good mix!
I wash my faja on quick wash while I'm taking a shower so I'm not out of it for long.
You can open the flap to your faja and pee standing up/squatting a little. First my husband held it up, but that's bcuz my arms were sore from lipo... now I do it myself. The peeez thing works good too, just kinda gross.
I can't think of anything else for now, but comment if you'd like to know anything else!
Just for fun
But first, I want to make one thing clear - I am extremely happy with my overall appearance and the work Dr Hsu did. I really love my new body, and I can't stop looking at it in the mirror! However, there are some things I'm not happy about, which I discuss here on RS with you guys.. but if I had to do it over again, I would still choose Dr Hsu.
I'm not happy with the size of my hips. I know we agreed not too much, but I feel like I've lost the little that he put and I'm basically back to my pre op size. The view from the back is nice, but I feel like when you look at me from the front, I have a straight shape, instead of curvy. I've pointed out flat spots in previous pics, and I know I'm going to lose more volume. I'm barely going on 6 weeks post op!
I'm wishy washy when it comes to the projection of my booty. I wanted more of a bubble butt, but my butt is like flat on top. I also have a flat spot on the bottom on both sides, and I've convinced myself it's from laying on my back right after surgery. Why wasn't I placed on my stomach?? I remember waking up so mad, and I immediately flipped over. Depending on my mood, and lighting in the room, sometimes I love it and sometimes I'm like mehh it needs more plumping.
My upper back is still pretty fat to me. I still have back rolls when I wear a bra, and girls we all know that's the one thing to piss us off when we are trying to look cute! I know it might be swollen, and I do plan on losing some weight, but I'm scared if I diet then I will lose my ass!
And lastly, the indentions on my lower belly kill me everyday. I had laparoscopic surgery right above these new incisions (for endometriosis) and my old scars are almost completely faded. So I'm pretty sure it was the drains that caused the indentions, but I could be wrong.
I have not seen dr hsu since my 2 week check up, and I have not discussed any of my concerns with him yet. I will see him First or second week of June, and I will let y'all know what he says!
I know I sound like I'm complaining a lot, but I swear I love my body. It's like night and day when I look at pre op and post op pics of myself. I just see girls who go to Dominican Republic and come back with a completely different body, and I'm like howwww?? They paid less than half of what I paid and got a tiny waist and huge ass! And I feel like I just forked over more than $10,000 cash (plus massages, supplies, etc) and I got a body that I could have went to the gym for. But it's not just me, basically everyone who gets work done in the United States, gets a mediocre ass. I've done research and I've yet to see an American doctor give that Dominican look. I don't even like half the work doctor Miami does! He's over rated. Everyone should know to make it bigger at first because it will only shrink! But anyways.. don't get me wrong, I wasn't going for that super huge Dominican butt, I'm only pointing out how much of a difference girls get for less money. Plus risk their lives haha.
So anyways, ladies, please look at my pics and tell me if I'm being crazy, or if my body could pull off the extra plump. I have 2 pics that are slightly diff and I want you to like the pic that looks best... sorry I have too much free time :]
I see other girls that Dr. Hsu worked on, and y'all have such a beautiful figure. I want a tiny waist and curvy hips too!! ????
Here are old pics to remind you what I first looked like, then I'll make another post with updated pics... as you can see I've never had that curvy look.
Booty on point
Current measurements: 34-29-40
My bra size is 34 DDD, but as you can see I'm pretty much falling out.
I'm going to get a breast lift, with the boobie master, Dr Hsu :]
Not sure when it's happening... I might wait until I have another baby, because I do plan on breastfeeding again for 1-2yrs.
I love my new booty! I just hope I can get my hips fixed :/
Here are some videos.. my stomach looks gross I know :/
Dr. Hsu's work is really consistent, and you have a 99% chance of getting an almost perfect result.
I've seen Dr. Cortes do some good work, but then some are just ridiculous, so it's like a 50/50 chance.
I feel like they are 2 different looks, also. Every doctor has their own technique and certain look they go for, and I'm pretty sure these guys are doing 2 different things??
Dr. Hsu = hips/slope (coke bottle)
Dr. Cortes = laterals/shelf (hourglass)
I'm not saying they always do this look, sometimes I've seen a little of both, but for the most part this is what it looks like to me. What do you ladies think?
Giving it a rest
So I got a quote for a 2nd round (more like a touch up), and it's a little more than I expected. I'm not sure if it's worth spending more money. I look great right now. My husband can't keep his hands off me, everywhere I go someone is always telling me how "beautiful" I am (which hasn't happened to me since before baby). So I must look good right? I like that I get "beautiful" instead of "dammmn girl".. it makes me feel like people really think this is natural, which is definitely the look I was going for. Natural, Big, & classy.
My stomach is looking better. Most wrinkles have disappeared. It's still a little lumpy, which I'm sure won't go away, but that's ok for now. For my right hip, it's basically a little ball of fat.. looks bad when I sit.. and my right butt cheek has an annoying flat spot. These are some things that I would like to be "touched up". I wish my waist was smaller, i wish I had no upper back fat, and I'd like a tad bit bigger hips. (If my waist was smaller, my hips would look bigger and I'd be cool with that). Buttttttttttttttttttt - I know if I work out, and lose around 10lbs give or take, I can look amazing. My face will look thinner, and maybe my back fat will go away.
If I was single with no kids, hell yeah id do this again. But me having another surgery is taking away from my family and being pretty selfish. I'm considering having another child within the next year, so I'm sure this would be a complete waste to redo anything now. I really don't want another baby.. ever.. but I can't imagine my daughter growing up by herself, so I guess I have to have another one lol. This is why I go back and forth with if I should or shouldn't have surgery again.
Anyways, I'm good for now I suppose. At least for this moment. Haha. Here are some pics. Sorry I'm always naked in my pics.. those are from the morning first waking up, and the pics with clothes are after I ate and went shopping.
