35 Years Young 2 Teens New BBL Journey to Snatch It Back - Miami, FL

I have been interested in this procedure a few...

I have been interested in this procedure a few years now. My body is not like it was I have gained and lost weight over the years. I am not in the best of shape due to my career, kids, and busy lifestyle, however, I am always told I look a lot younger than my age and i'm all for anything to preserve my body. I will only be happy with less rolls, flat stomach and a fat butt!!!! Yazzzzzzz Huntey!!! I have spent hours on the internet looking at pictures, researching doctors, checking prices, weighing the risks , etc. Over the past few months I have gotten really serious about actually doing something. I've never had any major surgeries or procedures done in the past besides Botox and Juvederm. While searching for information I discovered Real Self had lots of reviews from actual people that had these procedures. Last week I opened my account. I decided against telling my entire family so I feel alone. I do not know what excuse I will give my job or family once I return and pop up with a new body. any ideas???? I have learned while trying to find information on Real Self some of the women are helpful and some of them are not. I decided we are all in the same boat so why not help each other. I will document my journey as much as I possible can to help as many as I can...........wait for it!!!

FIRST THING FIRST

the first thing I did was submitted my pictures along with the pre op consult to Shirley. She answers most of my questions but she is ready for my payment. Once she emails the bank information I will make a wire transfer to save my date!

full name

address

phone number

email

age

DOB

height

weight

children if so what type of birth and how many

prior surgeries if so when

do you drink how often

do you smoke how often

any medical conditions

any allergies

medication

procedure interested in and what doctor.
I have a BMI of 31.8. Dr. Fisher's requirement is a BMI below 30 so in order to have surgery with Dr. Fisher then I must lose at least 10 lbs. I have already decided I'm going with Dr. Omulepu because his BMI requirement is below 34.

MY FIRST MOMENT OF DISCURAGEMENT

I was just told the 4,000 cash special ends next week. I would have to pay 1,000 dollars down to hold my special and date. That would be fine except they only do cash deposits or wire transfers. I was hoping to make a small cash down payment of about 10% then pay the rest off during tax time .....wtf! Why is my down payment so high? I've read reviews where anywhere from 300.00 to 500.00 have held the date. I also would like to see the contract before I pay down. I emailed Shirley back so I'm waiting on a response almost in tears already

DEPOSIT PAID

SO IVE PAID 500.00 TO LOCK IN THE SPECIAL PRICE.... I WILL HAVE TO PAY ANOTHER TO LOCK IN MY DATE......SINCE I WILL BE ALONE AND NO ONE REALLY SUPPORTS MY DECISION TO GO THROUGH WITH THIS ..........I HAVENT BEEN ABLE TO PICK A DATE YET. I HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE RESCHEDULING NIGHTMARES SO I WILL HAVE TO CHOOSE A DATE ONE TIME.......

LABS, RECOVERY HOMES, AND STUFF

I THINK I WILL GO AHEAD AND ORDER MY OWN LABS FIRST TO SEE WHERE IM AT ......ONCE MY RESULTS COME BACK I'LL KNOW WHAT SUPPLIMENTS I NEED TO START .....I HAVE ALSO STARTED TO SHOP FOR RECOVERY HOMES..I WOULD PREFER ONE THAT INCLUDES EVERYTHING FROM GARNMENTS TO FOOD, MEDS, MASSAGES AND TRANSPORTATION........WHAT HAPPENS TO MY STUFF WHILE I'M IN SURGERY?

DEPOSIT PAID DATE SET

Dr.oask is going to get this arse right. I am so excited. ...I have paid my deposit. ...my date is set! I have my prescription for my labs and I have started picking up a few supplies ....the patient portal makes everything feel so real!!

let's talk about emotions

I have paid my deposit. ..I have been approved for my time off...so I should be happy right??? I'm having mixed emotions. ...I'm stressed about everything that can go wrong. ...I still have not shared anything about my journey with no one except my bf...who is not very supportive...

recovery home

I am in search of a recovery home....any suggestions?
a few of my bbl sisters are going in ahead of me ....I am waiting on their updates before I decide which recovery home I will use. I want to book before the tax season starts ....before the homes start to fill up......

recovery house booked

I'm going to keylas recovery home. ...ladies please take the time to do your own research. ...go with your gut and do what's best for you....just because someone had a bad experience do not mean yours will be bad

garments

Do not get them ahead of time. ...you do not know what size you will be after surgery and your doctor may recommend a certain one

labs

Don't wait until the last minute. ...get that done early in case your hemo/iron is low ....

when to take bromelian

Read this post

countdown to bbl

I don't have much time left. ..our have purchased so many supplies and I know I'm not going to use everything but the shopping ease my anxiety

surgery supplies

Surgery supplies can get expensive. ...I did however get most of the things on this list before I realized I'm getting a bbl only and not a tummy tuck try not to over do it because I'm sure there are more things I'll need that are necessary but not on this list....keep in mind you may be covered in blood but not allowed to bathe until the first post op appointment

Labs labs labs what's your hemo

Mine is 13.3 without anything. ...I'll be getting mine checked again in about a month. ...if those are okay I will do my final labs......if your hemo is low you cannot have surgery....most required labs are hcg for pregnancy. .cbc for blood count ...hiv testing ......ptt/pt for blood clotting issues. ...uranalysis for infections and kidney functions ....get your primary care doctor to run the labs first or use walk in labs like I did

liposuction post op

Massages, garments and compression are vital for recovery If you want to heal right. ...don't cheat yourself treat yourself. ...skipping out on this may cost you big time in the long run its recommended to get about 10 post op massages to smooth the skin....and lumps back out. ....massages also help prevent seromas and fibrosis .....your doctor will most likely provide and recommend your post op garment....

lipo scars...can they be prevented

The length of liposuction scars is determined by the caliber of the suction tubes being used. Most scars are extremely short but i do not want any scars i know they will be small but i still do not want any. what are the celebrities doing to prevent lipo scar on the butt cheeks
i have thought about microdermabrasion....yes on my butt lol.....chemical peels...silicon strips .and mederma ....any suggestions

WISH PICS

I know some of these ladies had more than 1 round but can I dream...this is the type of booty I want

DR. OSAK LICENSE HAVE BEEN REVOKED

I AM GOING WITH DR. MCADOO....I HAVE 13 DAYS LEFT......I AM PACKING MY BAG THIS WEEKEND....SO THAT I DO NOT FORGET ANYTHING....I AM ALSO WAITING TO BE CLEARED FOR SURGERY.....I HAVE PURCHASED EVERYTHING EXCEPT MY GARMENT....I WILL GET THAT IN MIAMI...I DO NOT KNOW WHAT SIZE I WILL BE OR WHAT TYPE THE DOCTOR PREFERS.

MY 4,000.00 SURGERY HAS TURNED INTO 7,000.00

PROCEDURE 4000
SUPPLIES 600
GARMENTS (2) 200
DRESSES 100
RECOVERY HOME 650
MASSAGES IN MIAMI 200
MASSAGES AT HOME 350
PRESCRIPTIONS 200
PLANE TICKET 350
OTHER SURPRISE EXPENSES


THIS SURGERY JOURNEY HAS BEEN EXPENSIVE.....I WILL NOT CHEAT MYSELF WHEN IT COMES TO MY RECOVERY.....POST OP CARE IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR GOOD RESULTS....I HAVE PURCHASED MOST OF THE SUPPLIES ON THE LIST....HOWEVER, SEVERAL OF THEM WILL NOT BE USED UNTIL I RETURN HOME. I WILL GET A MASSAGE EACH DAY IM IN MIAMI AND I WILL CONTINUE ONCE IM BACK HOME...

THIS IS A SURGERY

Although its elective...it is still very serious...don't take it lightly....anything can happen....it's stressful....it's time consuming...it's expensive.....do your research....and choose what's best for you! do not go by another person's experience.....commit to yourself ....make arrangments for your kids if you need to.....pay your bills.....go grocery shopping....put gas in your car.....be prepared......I've spent countless hours on the internet looking for information....asking questions...before I made a decision. As my time approach I have been distant because I only want to focus on myself. I have purposely avoided everyone ....no going out....no alcohol....nothing....I want to be in my best mind state and best health....no negative vibes...no gossip....no tea....no shade lol

TROUBLE GETTING CLEARANCE

I have been waiting to be cleared for over a week. I have about 9 days left so I decided to call today and see what the holdup was and I'm glad I did. Everything was within normal range according to Labcorp. I had no flags, no low or high results.

but according to the "guide" they use for surgery clearance at vanity. My MCHC was low 31.3..(should be between 32-36).my aptt is high 46 (should be between 25-35) and my hcg is 1059 (should be 0) if not pregnant
..I haven't been pregnant in 15 years! thank god for walk in labs....im headed there now

carry on bag

I am having trouble getting everything in my carry on bag....I've packed and unpacked it 3 times....everything will not fit in there. did this happen to anyone else? what did you do?.....maybe I have to much stuff lol

WHATS IN MY BAG

I have sat here and packed and unpacked my bag AGAIN!!!! I don't think everything will fit in a carry on bag. I decided to share everything i'm taking on my trip and this will also help me to remember what i have. I will purchase my garment and bbl pillow in Miami. I will make a post op summary of the things I didn't need upon request.

I MET DR MCADOO

HE WAS AWESOME. ...I WENT FOR MY PREOP ....I GOT MY GARNMENT AND NOW I'M AT KEYLA'S ...THESE SPANISH WOMEN KNOW THERE STUFF

I made it to the flat side

Dr. Macadoo was honest about everything before I could show him some pictures he recommended what I was looking for from the surgery. His personality was great ...he told me what I could and could not do

DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE PAIN

If you think because you had kids this will be a breeze ... you will be in for a reality check. Today is my first day in my right state of mind....no in and out of sleep. ...no vomiting. ..and no crying. On a scale of 1-10 it's 10 with the pain medication. ...our have kids....tattoos ...and a stab wound. ...this pain is different from all of that...I haven't posted pictures because I couldn't. . But here goes my first one

keyla recovery home

First I'm not getting paid to promote this woman I can only tell you my experience. . .this woman has opened her home to care for strangers....she does not have a limo service. ... you are not hiring a private duty nurse to follow you around and care for you only.....day 1 expect around the clock care.....after that get up off your ass and try to start helping your self. ..when I got out of recovery she had already picked up my prescription. ...I got to the house and I couldn't hold my head up. ...keyla feed me soup through a straw and put crackers in my mouth so I could take my pills......I called 4 her at 3am.....she got out the bed to help me go to the bathroom. She told me don't get up and I did anyway and my ass passed out.....day 2.. I went for post op. ...I got back she help me bath she help me put on my clothes...foams..and garnment...day 3 she was there but there were others coming out of surgery that needed more help and care...so I had to get my ass up and get what I need ...sometimes 3 or 4 people have the same appointment so sometimes you may have to wait. ...it's women coming ...going...post op appointments....pre...op appointments always something. ....people who want to order food people who want massages. .If you have to wait ....just be patient and wait!!!!!! She can only do so much....I would have died without her...you will need care post op and keyla will teach you how to take care of yourself while you are there so you can be independent at home

my massage kit

It came today ....I'm going to use this in between my massages....remember that after care is just as important for the best results don't cheat yourself treat yourself

back to reality

I'm at work today 11 days post op. I know what you are thinking!!! but the reality is I have to work. I am so tired I wish that I had taken off more time. I took 8 days and I did not want to do FMLA because I did not want to discuss my surgery with no one at work. anywho....I have on my garment 3 foams my ab board and my back board. I feel like the tin man with all this stuff on. I also have on a jacket. I have to sit at work so I will be measuring my booty everyday this week.

booty greed

at about 5 -10 days post op when you look at yourself ...you will begin to think why did I do this? was it worth it? you may also feel like your butt is smaller. I did and I cried.....truth is the swelling has subsided. my butt is probably close to the size it will be ...I am happy but
the response to reaching your goal and the time has come to move on to the next phase in life. You CAN get through this period by reminding yourself that what you are going through is perfectly normal. I

ass big as the sun

Ass for days. ..get you one!

Happy one month post op to me

I like how things are coming along. ..starting to get a clear picture of what I will look like in 2 months. ...minor swelling. ...sides still sore and tender. ...starting to soften and jiggle. ..happy I made this decision

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO SLEEP ON MY BUTT AFTER BBL

IT FEELS LIKE SLEEPING ON WATER BALLOONS LOL

ITCHY MESS

It seems like i have been itching so much this week....especially my back and butt

my nerves are mending back together

i get brief jolts of pain here and there...the kind that makes you jump......my feeling is coming back along my sides and lower back
Aventura Plastic Surgeon

On October 27, 2015 I submitted my information to request information. On October 28, 2015 Shirley, a surgery coordinator responded. I then asked a ton of questions. I had originally wanted Dr. Fisher but due to my BMI she suggested DR OSAK OMUELPU since his credentials are the same. I looked him up, I was impressed with his before and afters so I submitted my pre op consult and pictures. I am waiting for his response.
