I'm having my Brazilian Butt Lift With Dr Cortes...

I'm having my Brazilian Butt Lift With Dr Cortes I'm super Excited I have a nice shape already but I just want it fuller I meet Dr. Cortes in June 19th 2013 He made me feel so comfortable and his staff shouts out to Deanna and Lucy you ladies are awesome!!! I can't wait till get a bigger Butt & Hips

MY Pre OP APPT....

Just got off the phone with Deanna she scheduled my Pre OP Registration APPT!!! for Dec 2nd At the Hospital so I have decided to check in my Hotel on Dec 8th I am hoping the weather wont be so bad.. I also booked my hotel stay for 2 weeks but I couldn't believe the price that was quoted to me by my travel agent plus my rental car I decided not to fly since Houston is only 3 to 4 hours away from me so I thought renting a Caravan would be more comfortable and roomy because I can lay flat on my stomach in the back while my hubby chauffeurs me home LOL.... I will keep everyone updated and I will upload some before pictures within a couple of days talk to Ya soon BYE!!!!


Hi Ladies I just want to give a little information about myself I am 41 I will be 42 in August I have 3 kids 21,17 and a 3 year old I know what your saying WOW!!! That's a bigggg difference... I been married for 17 years. So much for that's... Well let me make this long story short I hope LOL.. For the past 6 years I have wanted a make over BIG BOOTAY AND TINY WAIST LINE so I said when I turn 40 I having a BBL And a Breast Reduction well change in plans after I had my middle son I got my tubes tide that was in 1996!!! when I turned 38 my doctor said that I was 4 1/2 weeks Pregnant that's the last thing I heard him say before I pasted out in his office LOL.. Now at that time my middle son was in JR High so that kinda postpone my BBL & my Breast Reduction Having my last child put a lot of weight on me; before that I stayed at the gym preparing myself for this surgery Sometimes things just don't go the way you plan it. after my 3rd child I told my doctor don't tide my tubes you can cuttem, burning them, barbecue them do whatever YOU got to do but I am done having KIDS!!!!! JUST 1 year ago I started doing my research and some how I ran across Real Self I am so glad I did or I would have never my so many ladies with the same idea as myself and I would have never found Dr. Cortes either. I was so undecided who I wanted to do my BBL I prayed about it and I choose Cortes especially after I seen his YOUTUBE Videos I was sold I wish he could have done my Breast Reduction but he is out of network with my insurance BCBS Which Sucks so I am going to have that done August 29th giving my body time to heal before Dec 9th I am having my breast done here in Dallas Tx I am 5"7 I weigh 215 my Breast Size is 42 H and I am sizing these girls down to a 38DD Wish me LUCK LADIES!!! My family knows I am having my breast reduction But I haven't told them about the BBL sx reason why is I just don't want to hear negative things come out of their mouth about it. I need some positive energy around me right now. My husband knows about my Breast Reduction and He knows about my 2nd sx don't laugh ladies but he thinks im getting a TT LOL... THE reasons I haven't actually told him the complete truth is Last night I was looking at some post op pics and he was being nosey as usual he walk up to see what I was doing on the computer and he seen naked A** so he said WHAT THE HELL!!! ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT GETTING BUTT IMPLANTS!!! LOL...So I said NO!!! Which I did tell the truth.im not getting butt implants im getting FAT transferred to my A** So I have decided to just surprise the HELL out him when he comes in the recovery room!!! Dr. Cortes said that he will give me the BUTT I always wanted and Hips and Tiny Waist Line and my Hour Glass Shape I told him that I wanted 1200cc in each cheek and 300cc in my Hips because of my Height and he said no problem cause Lord know I have enough FAT.. for all of that LOL.. He SAID he will do Lipo on my Abdomen, Arms, Back, Thighs, and Chin LORD knows my body needs it.. Well sorry I tried to make this SHORT it turned out to be a BOOK LOL... I AM FIXING TO UPLOAD SOME BEFORE PICS OF MYSELF... I WILL STAY IN TOUCH LADIES (Good Night) AND GOD BLESS...

Preparing For My Breast Reduction

Hi Ladies today was a very busy Morning and Afternoon for me I met my Plastic Surgeon for the 1st time he seems really nice his name is Dr. Nguyen and he has been in practice for many years doing BR so that made me feel at ease!!! So anyways I finally get called back I had to get undressed so he could take pictures and measurements of these Huge Watermelons LOL... (42H)!!!!!! I can tell that Dr. Nguyen is very into his work he explained everything to me he answered all my questions and he said since my breast were so large that he would have to do a anchor cut on me and I might have a scar but in time it will slightly go away not all the way but some I am ok with that just as long as he do a good job on me and give me what I am asking for which is 38DD NO MORE NO LESS!!!! So he sent me across the street to have my MAMMOGRAM done LADIES let me tell you this that was my first time having a mammogram done ever... THAT SHIT HURT!!! MY damn Breast is so FREAKING BIG THAT the woman had to use both hands to maneuver them around LOL... AND I didn't like all that pinching either when I left out of that place my NIPPLES WERE SORE AS HELL!!!! MY Husband ain"t gonna be able to Suck or Lay on these GIRLS for awhile LOL....So after I had that done my PS told me he would submit everything to the insurance company this week so hopefully I can have my surgery in August aleast that will give me time to heal and get ready for my BBL IN DEC. Oh I almost forgot the Dr. told me that my breast were uneven my Left was bigger than my right I was like what the HELL!!! I ALWAYS THOUGHT I HAD IDENTICAL TWINS But today I find out that their FERTERNAL TWINS we both just laughed our butts off... but to keep it REAL I really wanted Dr. Cortes to do my BR... When I was at the Dr. office my phone rings and its LUCY from Dr. Cortes office she told me that she was sending me a email of my Surgery Date Confirmation and my Post-OP Instruction packet and a Receipt of my 500 dollar down payment I had to sign it and fax it back so I got that taken care of. Now its all about waiting I will keep everyone posted God Bless!!!!


Hello my BBL Sista"s I need your advise about something if you have already read the beginning of my Blog then you should that I didn't tell my other half that l was having a BBL he thinks I am having a TT and even with that he is Flipping out telling me that I am waisting money on that when all I have to do is workout really hard. MY Sista"s for some reason I am sensing some JEALOUS LOL... a lot of it...I told him that he knows that I have wanted a BBL and a TT I just never put a lot on IT.. having the BBL JUST MORE on me getting the TT. BUT after really thinking long and hard my mind was completely sold on having my BBL 1st this was something I"ve been wanting for the past 4 to 6 years but I got pregnant in 2009 so my dreams were put on hold for awhile but now its my time to SHINE!!!! He told me that he has my back but still I can feel jealous coming from him that's why I haven't completely giving him the COMPLETE truth... I am having surgery YES!!! BUT not a TT Should I tell him now OR wait until they roll me into the recovery laying on my stomach with a FAT A** I SEE how he reacted towards me when I told him about the TT See Ladies he probably thought I was joking back when I was considering it all and now he is acting like he is just surprised that I am committed to this JUST imagine how he will react if I told him about me having a BBL instead of the TT MY Big sister told me to tell him when he comes in the recovery room to say SURPRISE BABE THIS IS FOR YOU!!!! TO ME THAT SOUNDS KINDA OF LAME!!! My Sista"s what do u think??? WHEN I should let the cat out of the bag.

I see Ya Dr. J on the Big Screen :-):-)

I do that was one of my biggest fears. My SX was on a Monday at 6am it took him almost 5 hrs in surgery my LEFT breast gave him the most problems because that one had the most FAT and I know that some of you are wondering how much fat did he remove LOL.. well wonder No more he took 10.5cc of fat from my HUGE WATERMELONS LOL...That's a lot when I was in recovery my Big Sister and Hubby was right their with me all I could hear was the nurses saying MY name so finally I was coming out from under all them drugs, But wait let me tell ya I was in so much PAIN that they had to put me back under until they got my pain under control which I don't know really how long that took But when I came to again I was not in very much Pain it was tolerable when the nurse and my sister told me to look down I started F****** Screaming saying OMG I GOT A MAN"S CHEST LOL My Sister said I was saying all kinds of S*** But mind you I was still out of it...My Dr. was still their with me I thought that was so sweet of him so around 6:30PM they let me go home I was so high I slept all the way home My Sister stay at my house for a WEEK IN HALF to HELP me WHILE my Hubby took care of our 3 kids mind you We have a 3 years old OMG Ladies my Baby was AFRAID Of me he was looking at me so weird like What are those things hanging from you I told him that they were DRAINS baby to help Mommy When my Sister was changing my Shirt he Look at me and said UHH MAMA Somebody stole my Pillows OMG!!!!
