Been waiting to have this done for a couple of years now after reading so many reviews and research and finally im getting it done!! I'm sooooo nervous yet so excited! I'm cleared for surgery and now I'm one week away from being a new me. I've always had big breast a gut and no butt and after my child my stomach really expanded. I was told to lose 8lbs but I've been so nervous and I'm a stress eater !! I'm coming out of state and the process at spectrum has went well. I sent my photos in and did a phone consultation got a response within a couple hours with the price. Initially I was going to Alvarez but after looking at his reviews a lot of his patients didn't have much projection after recovery and I want a body not just a nice shape so I switched to Ghurani. I've been buying things for post op and will probably be traveling back home after two weeks. It's a hour half flight so I'm trying to figure out if I can sit on a booty buddy or similar for the flight duration? Here's some pre op photos, I will need a tummy tuck at some point too for the skin
Surgery tomorrow !!
Surgery is tomorrow morning!! I'm sooooo excited and nervous at the same time !! I'm just ready to get this over with so my mind can relax lol just pray for me
2 days post op
All done with surgery !! Dr Ghurani made me feel very very comfortable it was no need to be nervous at all. The team he has is great to as well as the anesthesiologist made me feel very very comfortable. Still very swollen and I will need a tummy tuck because I have a lot of loose skin from my c section. Recovery is just very uncomfortable and sore not too painful for me. I just take Tylenol extra strength and arnica tabs, not the prescribed Vicodin. I'll upload a pic. I'll put more up when I can
Feeling a lot better. Still very sore and I walk a lot to reduce stiffness. Sleeping is sooooo uncomfortable because I can only sleep in one position. I had my second follow up but had to postpone because the wait was just too long in the office and the dr was seeing people in between surgery. The second day I cried I felt a little regretful because I was so swollen and my butt looked a little shelf and square but today when I got up the swelling went down a lot and I'm really happy with what I'm seeing. So don't rush your results give time to heal. Walk a lot and drink lots of alkaline water. I still take two Tylenol extra strength and arnica tabs for the discomfort.

Feeling really good!! I'm healing great. I had a couple issues with seroma i had to keep getting drained with a syringe because my garment wasn't tight enough. So I put extra compression on the areas I got drained, lipo foams, lipo board and wrapped a abdominal ace bandage around it and that did the trick lol so I wear my garment 24/7 except for the shower. Most of the numbness wore off and the most irritating thing was feeling my nerves repair and sensory come back. It feels like little electric shocks. Still swollen but Other than that I'm cool

Swelling has went down on my butt and numbness is pretty much gone. My booty still nice but I was loving it more when it was still swollen lol . Happy with my results and I'm back to working out. I still swell up a lot around my abdomen and my skin is still very sensitive. I wear my garment at night and off during the day . I tried to wear heels once and my feet hurt so bad and got swollen really bad. Be sure not to rush your healing process, it's a very long process. Eat properly or your body will feel really bad afterwards.
