Ok ladies I have been on rs every day all day i dont even drive half the time i make my boyfriend because im too busy sitting in the passenger seat stalking this site! I have read through hundreds of profiles and was initially going with dr perry because i like the way he contours the body shape but once i reviewed his profileand before n after pic i found it just wasnt what i was looking for ive seen better and more reviews for dr s. So i sent my request for consultation

So im really wishy washy because ive seen in some...

So im really wishy washy because ive seen in some of the girls stories where they posted the "dr thoughts" about the pics they sent in and i noticed it was the exact same thing word for word that cynthia emailed me! So did he really even look at them? Because my belly is jiggly no firmness to it what so ever so am i gonna need a TT or is that his normal response to photos unless he sees something extra

its been a long time

So i just realized i have not updated this thing in over 2 years and ALOT has happened. I have been through school and had a baby. I am finally ready to have surgery! I was beginning to look at Dr. Miami and just love hos work but he is soooo expensive then i started looked at Cabral but when i was telling my husband all about him his work and prior accusations he said absolutely not so i came back to the original doctor that i have always loved. I re-did my consult with salama and have switched from a BBL to a mommy makeover and am scheduled for surgery October 7th. I am very nervous and have no idea what to do from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated! What things do i need to buy? I dont have a PCP so im not sure how it goes to get a clearance for surgery and what that entails. Cynthia told me they have a Doctor above them that does medical clearance for 200 if i wanted to do that

help please

Where can i find more mommy makeovers from dr salama. The majority i see are BBL'

places to stay

I was looking at hotels near EPS and they are a bit pricey like 1200 and they have no kitchen. I found weekly rentals on airbnb for apartments and found some really nice 1 bedrooms for less than 900 a week including cleaning fee and deposit. Alot of them also have weekly discounts so if your going to salama check it out.

The shameful tire around my waist. I cant wait to have surgery and not worry about wearing my pants so high to hide my love handles

Medical clearance

I got an email from zuny about my medical clearance. Am i supposed to print this email out containing the orders and take it somewhere?. Im not sure where to go get my medical clearance as i do not have a pcp and have not been to one in forever. Any help would be great!!! Thank you ladies


Its been a long time since i updated my review and now my surgery is nearing the corner. I have just started a new job at the hospital and am a little nervous about returning to work after surgery. They are allowing me 3 wks. I was going to take the same time at my previous job but it was LTC so not too much difficult work and slower paced. Any suggestions to make the transition as easy as possible or what you personally were able to do at 3 weeks?

So i call the office to find out about price difference for full back instead of bra roll and they say an additional 1500 ???? well how is it that if each additional area is 500? Then she says whether i get upper and lower or just lower it will still be 1500. Anybody else have this problem? Well i had it added for now until i get to the bottom of it just in case i dont have the option later!!!
On another note i called my Dr about my labs and she told me i have the most boring labs ever lol not one thing out of range and my ekg is textbook perfect so i am too excited about that there will be no problems there!

Supplies and countdown!!!

So the count down begins!!! I am almost 18 days preop and i am soooo excited but starting to get a bit nervous. I have been cleared for surgery and have paid off my final balance.
So i ended up doing the mommy makeover with lipo to the flanks and full back and saline implants.
Not sure if im mossing anything but here is the list of things i bought
Memory foam neck pillow
2 robes
5 fitted tanks
Waist trainer
2 dresses
Bacitracin ointment packets
Triple abt ointment
4x4 gauze
ABD pads
Box of gloves
Fiber laxative
Vit. C
Throat lozengers
Saline bottles
Anti-itch cream
Long cotton tip sticks
3 TED hose

I think that is everything, not sure if im missing anything. Do the drains come with the blue clamps, if not i need those too



Belly bulge

3 days post op

Omg god i feel like ive been hit by a train. I am officially 3 days post op, my surgery was postponed because of the hurricane. My back is lumpy and numb but hurts when someone touches it, its the weirdest feeling. I take pain meds around the clock and sleep most of the day away.
How long does it take for the pain to subside?
How do i help my belly button become normal?
When can i stand up straight or turn side to side to sleep.

More before and after

4 days post op

Dr salama and his staff have been so sweet to me. Im not sure about anyone elses experience but i am very pleased with my decision to choose him. He was open and honest with me at preop about my breast size and what would be good for my shape based on measurements. He talked about all the risks involved and made sure any questions i had were answered. The day of surgery i showed up early morning talked with the Dr. For a little bit took pictures and got marked up. I followed the anesthesiologist to the OR i told him i was very nervous about getting an iv and he was so nice and gentle, it didnt even hurt after that i just remember waking up so cold and in alot of pain the nurse was really nice and kept trying to make me as comfortable as possible. My blood pressure was running low so i had to get bolus of fluids then off i went. The first few days are so bad i couldnt eat im in so much pain and the medication only took the edge off. My ass was numb and hurt because i can only lay on my back, i cant reposition myself i cant do anything independently. My follow up appoint was ok, my BP was low again so the hooked me back up to fluids, and took the drain out of my butt because it was so painful. The nurse was busy with someone else so the doctor stayed and helped me get dressed and put the lipo foam and binder back on me and made sure i was comfortable. He is just so nice and really does care about his patients. I was supposed to have a massage but the times were mixed up so i didnt get to have one but i am scheduled for one tomorrow before i go back home. I hope its not to painful because my back really hurts. Thats all for now

Btw my feet are so swollen even though i keep them elevated, should i be worried


The circled blue area is a little pink, it wasnt that way this a.m. i took off faja to clean and put the binder on amd fell asleep i went to change back and noticed it. Is some pink normal from compression. Also im 6 days PO and i still cant stand completely upright without feeling like im gonna pop my stomach open and im sooooo swollen


Preop vs. 6 days post op


I have severe swelling on my back and constipation so bad nothing has helped what have you ladies done for constipation? I've taken milk of Mag coffee lots of water colace, etc it hurts like hell


When will my body stop being stiff and my back stop hurting. I hate not being able to be independent and have to take such frequent breaks because my back is killing me.
I go back to work next weekend and work 3 12's in a row i have no idea how i will survive

New faja


15 days post op. Have on spanx with a waist cincher over it, the perfect compression seems my new faja is a little too tight and my other is too big. Awaiting a new thong one in the mail so this will due for now
