26 No Kids, Bbl and Tummy Tuck, Dr.Alkon, Horrible Hip Dips - Linden, NJ

Hey guys, I have been debating on when to write my review but today I became very emotional about my procedure and the results.
Before this surgery I had very flat butt and horrible hip dips. I hated my shape and want to curvy. After meeting with 7 other doctors, I meet with Dr. Alkon in November 2015. Dr. Alkon talked to me about what I wanted and what he could do. Like many other doctors, Dr. Alkon said he would not do the bbl with out a tummy tuck. After stalking his Instagram for about two weeks I decided he was the Doctor I wanted to do my surgery. I worked 7 days a week for 5 months and saved enough to get the surgery done. I was scheduled May 25,2016 to get my procedure.
Here I am today May 30th and Im 5 days post op. I love my flat stomach but hate the shape of my butt. I still have hip dips and I am not curvy. My butt as of today doesn't have a shape it's bigger but I don't see any real projection or shape. Dr. Alkon says its swelling but it just doesn't have a shape. He told me that once I get my drains out and get my actual garment the shape will be different. I just don't see how my shape will change but I have to trust him.
Today I actually cried because I worked really hard to get this procedure done and I'm not sure if I will be happy with the results.
I will definitely keep posting as I heal, hopefully I get more curvy.

12 days post op

So I'm officially 12 days post op and I'm feeling a little more positive. I talked to Dr. Alkon and he "said" what I was concerned about was nothing to be concerned about. I felt dicouraged seeing someone who was in his office that was one day post op and her results looked great. I'm still not happy with my results but I'm starting to like them a little more. On my 7th day post op I got my garment, so that has been helping. The pictures I'm posting are 9 days post op. At 12 days post op I'm a little less swelled but it's not a huge difference. I still have one drain (hopefully he removes the second drain on Wednesday), which is extremely annoying.

4 weeks post op still unhappy

I am 4 weeks post op and very unhappy with the results. I brought a new garment because the one Dr.alkon gave new as uncomfortable and painful. The new garment made me look more shaply but without the garment I still have no shape. I still have hip dips (they are ALOT smaller but still visible) I do not have any hips, which was what I really wanted! My butt looks flat almost! I know I just wasted 10,000 because all I wanted was a big butt and hips and what I got was a wide butt!
I had an infection in my belly button and dr. Alkon took out my stitches now I have a huge whole in my stomach. It's just so many things wrong Im far from happy!

3 months post-op

Overall I'm very curvy now but I don't have any real projection in my butt. Getting a second procedure done in December I'm not sure if I will be using Dr. Alkon
Newark Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Alkon is great dr. He is very caring and explained everything to me. He answered any questions I had and seemed like he genuinely cared about my well being.
