21 Year Old BBL - Miami, FL

I'm 5'11 and 165 lbs and literally had a back with a crack before this procedure, I just needed something there but did not want anything too huge. I chose Orlando Llorente in Miami and I did the $6,000 all inclusive with recovery stay BBL package. Before my surgery, I sent in my pictures and information and paid the $500 deposit. I then had my labs done about 2 weeks before the surgery. New Life called me and said my labs were good and the surgery could be done. I arrived at the airport and Anita picked me up, just for all of you ladies staying with Anita (also called Ana) she barely speaks english so something to keep in mind. I was taken to my pre op consultation and had to wait for about 45 minutes. New Life is always busy and their waiting room is always full. Once I met with him, he was very short and to the point. He told me to take my pants down and pointed to areas that needed filling and told me realistic expectations. The next day I had my surgery, I had to be there at 6:30 am and I did not end up having my surgery until 12:30pm. I woke up in a panic laying on my butt in extreme pain. I started screaming and eventually a nurse put pain meds in my IV to calm me down but I was still concerned as to WHY I was laying on my butt that I'm supposedly not allowed to sit on for a month. Anyways, once I got back to the house, it was super hard to get comfortable and sleep through the night but the pain is tolerable, it just is annoying and sucks. Overall, I'm really happy that I had this procedure done but some of the negatives:
New Life is always running late and you have to wait a while for anything
Dr. Llorente doesn't really have much of a personality and was very short with me
Dr. Llorente didn't take any of my upper back fat :(
Anita is slow with everything she does, always making me wait so that she could talk to friends at New Life, she also doesn't have much patience nor does she speak english
The pain
The bruising
The SWELLING (feels like it's never going to end)
The massages suck and hurt sooooo bad

However, the positives are
Elena from New Life is AMAZING. She was the sweetest and most caring person I met while in Miami, she went out of her way to check on me EVERY time I was at New Life and she txted me multiple times after the surgery to see how I was doing. She's all around fantastic at her job and just a really great person.
My ass, it looks great even though it is swollen and covered in bruises
My stomach is much smaller and my body is proportionate now

Overall I'm super happy that I did this (I'm writing this a week out) but I can't wait for the negative side effects to go away, which takes 1-3 months.
