29/no kids/BBL- Beverly Hills, CA

I've been wanting BBL for YEARS and I'm finally deciding to go through with it. I'm so nervous/excited! I'm in the Bay area and would love to have the procedure done here, but according to my research the more experienced BBL surgeons are in LA...so that's where I'm going! Does anybody have a surgeon in the Bay area they can recommend?

I've scheduled consultations with Dr. Kenneth Hughes and Dr. Dennis Dass. I've read so many good reviews about each doctor, I'm excited to meet them and get quoted for the procedure as I've seen a huge variation in prices people have paid. The only thing really holding me back at this point is financing so I hope I'm quoted fairly.

This site and everybody on it has been very helpful in my journey so far. Thank you!! <3

Every one of these ladies has a beautiful body. I'm really hoping to get an hourglass shape and a round perky butt.

29/no Kids/lumpy Stomach After BBL

I went in June to have my first ever cosmetic surgery procedure (BBL) with Dr. Dass. I'm happy that for once in my life my hips are bigger than my love handles. However, I'm left with irregularities from the lipo :'c

I noticed irregularities from the first day I had I was brave enough to look at my stomach without my compression garment; about a week. I was told it would even out with time. I massaged myself around 2.5 weeks and have been. I'm 11 weeks now and I still see lumps, fat pockets, and dents.

Dr. Dass explained that it was impossible to cut fat evenly, and I understand that. But I wasn't expecting this much irregularity. I wore a cropped top out and you can see the irregularities from the photos that were taken from afar. I was expecting to go out feeling sexy and now I'm self-conscious about my lumps.

I have only had 1 post visit because I live so far so it was too early to notice irregularities. I have my next appointment next week and I'm really hoping the doctor will tell me I'm still healing. I don't want to pay to have it fixed or go through the pain of lipo again.

To anyone reading...How long did it take for your stomach to look flat?

I see Dr. Dass in a few days. I will update again after the appointment. My hopes are he tells me he can fix it, or that I'm still healing and I'll flatten out. Seeing as how the dents are caused by uneven lipo, I don't think it'll be the latter. I will post some photos.

6 months post/new pain

Update on last follow up: My follow up in October went well and seeing Dr. Dass put me at east about my concerns regarding my dents. He assured me that those were muscles and abs.

Update on recovery: I'm still sore on my hips which is expected, especially when I sleep on them. My stomach feels almost fully recovered. My skin is still sensitive so anything more than a light message hurts. My back can handle more pressure, but my sides are still sensitive (more than my stomach). My lower back is the most sensitive and I'm thinking it's because this is where the most conturing was done. I had huge love handles before and now I have a really nice S shape.

New Pain: My lower center back, the area where the triangle foam was inserted under the garment during the healing process, is EXTREMELY sensitive. It feels badly bruised. If I bend over, if feels like someone pushing on my bruise. There is no bruising, and there's no visible bump. However, even if touch it with my finger it feels like pressing into a bruise. I started feeling it about a month ago and thought it was because I was getting used to sleeping on my back again and with my new shape, my body rests differently. I'm thinking this pain is caused from the new arch in my back? I've tried using pillows, different sizes and softness. I've also tried different types of soft blankets for support but nothing has worked. I can feel a bump in this area and it's very painful. I'm hoping it's a knot. Has anyone else experienced this? I'll upload a picture to show where the pain is.
