I stalked RS for a few years and did a lot of research and decided to go with Stanton. He was very professional, informative and polite. I traveled alone to LA (keeping the surgery a secret LOL) and had no issues. I used a driver to take me back to the hotel and slept the rest of the day and night.... other than to take meds, walk around the rom a bit and use the bathroom. The flight home was the hardest part about the traveling (traveled from TX). Once I finally got on the plane home I was fine.... walking through LAX was brutal and slooooooow. LOL
I had a more difficult recovery than most girls/guys on RS. I was sore for over 2 months. Then my right cheek would have aching pains on and off and still does but not as nearly as much as it once did. I could not bend over to pick anything up or tie my shoes for almost 6 weeks. It was a slow process.... Everyday I could go a little further.
I hated sleeping on my stomach so I would put piles of pillows in rows and put my booty in the space between the second and third pile and finally slept normally again.
I am now 6 months out and I still have aches when I sit too long and I still make pillow forts on the couch to sit on because its more comfy.
The shape at first was flat and kind of square but it fluffed out nicely and is starting to soften up a bit. My scars are almost non visible and i love the shape of my booty now that is has dropped. I still get aches and pains and the recovery was not easy for me but it was worth it.
BTW,,, my price is higher because i had my flanks lipo-ed as well.
Best of luck to anyone who is about to do this journey..... Dr. Stanton does great work and you are in great hands. :)
