What made you choose your surgeon?
Reason #63,8953 on why my Doctor is dope!
ANY time I've had a question or concern I've contacted him directly and he either calls or emails me ASAP.
He has returned other doll's calls during holidays and non office hours.
He shows up at recovery houses if you have a problem and has even had rides arranged when doll's rides have bailed at the last min.
Does your Doctor do that?
Besides an Iron and vitamin C supplement(I'm getting those from Walmart or Walgreens), this is what's in my shopping cart.
I was looking into bio oil as well.
So besides wipes, a squeeze bottle, a sleep aide, and stool softener am I missing anything?
I'm not buying pads or chux unless I need them afterwards because I don't think I'll need them.
Dr. B uses a technique to where his dolls don't bleed heavy afterwards.
Already bought my pool float, maxi dresses and I'm buying a package that includes the ab board, back board and foams for $50.00
I'm not buying any extra garments till after my sx and the compression socks are included in the sx package.
I also have a long Beach lounge chair that I'm going to alter to lay in and another chair that folds up into a bag that I'm going to alter so that I can sit down.
I'm still undecided about a bbl pillow at this point.
The dolls on IG seem to like the Dr. Miami booty pillow (or whatever it's called) for the back piece as they use it to help them sleep.
I sleep on my stomach anyways so Idk how much use I'll actually get out of it for $100.00
To anyone who bought the female urinal, did you actually use it after your sx?
Research, Research, RESEARCH!!!!
I get a lot of dolls in my DM asking me about sx, and I can tell that they haven't done much research about the surgeon that they're looking at or the procedure.
I can't not stress to you enough how important the research process is!
I too was once green when it came to this sx.
I remember years ago wanting to be a doll of some of the more "popular" surgeons from the D.R and Miami.
Then I researched the heck out of them and what I found made me uncomfortable and in some cases downright scared me!
I can only comment on what makes ME comfortable and secure in my decision. Experience, body count, technique, cost and aftercare concerns were definitely in my top 5 factors.
Hell the search for the surgeon for ME was a journey within its self!
For a newbie I knew not only did I need to be comfortable, confident and secure with my choice but my family needed this as well.
We all want amazing results but I never hear or read about dolls talking about experience, technique, body count or aftercare when it comes to choosing a surgeon.
It's always "Can they give cakes?"
"Who gives the tiniest waist?"
It's all fun and games till you start signing your life away!
I think for myself based on those top 5 concerns for myself Blinski was the best choice for me.
I honestly love Ghurani's work but his level of accessibility via Spectrum makes me pause.
Now that being said, just because I wouldn't let some of these "popular surgeons" touch me for $free.99 doesn't mean I don't admire some of their work. I'm just extra cautious like that when it comes to serious and risky stuff.
It's all about what you're comfortable with after you've completed some intense and extensive research.
Google and realself are your friends!
Wish pics: an unrealistic expectation?
No shade to those who live by wish pics, however I personally don't feel that's how this is suppose to work.
It's okay to use a pic with a similar body type and/or foundation to get an idea of what you could possibly look like, but to want to duplicate another unique human beings body seems not only ridiculous but unrealistic.
That's how you set yourself up for disappointment from having unrealistic expectations.
I'm clearly all for cosmetic enhancements, but some dolls don't realize that their core foundation has an impact on their results as well as the surgeon's skill level.
Look at yourself in the mirror and pull your skin, suck in your gut and envision yourself with bigger/smaller whatever it is and think about those improvements.
That way when your results exceed your expectations you're happy!
Why would you wanna be a carbon copy when you were made to be an original?
Lifestyle changes, not diets
No point in spending all of that money to end up gaining all of the weight back and undoing all of that hard earned progress.
Gotta maintain this results and that means maintaining a healthy lifestyle!
BBL pillow: Worth it or over priced marketing gimmick?
Okay sooooo maybe it's because I've been following this sx before any bbl pillow came along but I'm just not sold on spending $100 on a pillow.
Cakes were being given out and survived waaaaaay before that pillow came out.
For those that bought the actual pillow (any variation)how did you like it?
Was it worth the money?
I just don't think I'll use it that much. Besides driving I can't really see a use for it.
I walk at my job and I have chairs to alter to sit at home and I naturally sleep on my sleep on my l stomach.
I was thinking something like this or that high density half roll thing for under $8 if anything.
If I HAD to buy a pillow I think the Dr. Miami one with the back piece to it would be the best value.
Another doll showed us in a video on IG how she uses it to sleep and I thought that was a good idea.
Change of plans.....
So Jackie at Dr.B's office him and asked if she could get me in 2 days earlier.
Ummmmm.... HECK YES!!! LOL! This actually ended up saving me money!
So now I'll be in Miami on the 13th for my pre-op appt which makes me 70 days away! Still seems like forever but time is flying by!!! I remember when my countdown started and I was at 157days. I quit smoking and gained more weight than I woulda liked so I'm trying to lose 1lb per week until then. That's 10 weeks=10lbs
Let's get it! ;-)
*I just want it to be o-ver!!!* in my Keyshia Cole Voice

Cake daddy! Snatched! What waist?
I have 59 days to go!
Just biding my time.....waiting to be snatched. :-)
