Enhance Me!!! Miami, FL

I'm personally kind of new to this site. But I...

I'm personally kind of new to this site. But I love how everyone has shared their experiences and opinions about their surgery, as well how people support one another! I've been wanting a bbl since June 2014. I've seen a lot of good reviews for dr mel ortega so that's who I'm going with. I called karla the coordinator in July but didn't put a deposit down (I should have while everything was way cheaper lol) because I wasn't sure. Well last friday I finally made my deposit and I was going to go dec 15th but the only day they had open was dec 7th and I have to be out there dec 6th (which is my BDAY!!!) I'm more than excited and nervous than ever! I was quoted 5000.00 for the bbl and 700 to stay at the recovery house.

Just so yall know.....

I just wanted to let the people know who are staying at the recovery house, the deposit you give them does not go towards the recovery house! I asked my coordinator and she said you can pay for the recovery house when they pick you up from the airport


Sorry I've been so busy and haven't been able to update! ; ( we'll I got approved for my loan and funds were sent over to my coordinator ( I emailed her asking did she receive them....no response) BUT I have two weeks left and I'm kinda emotional I just want everything to go more than ok! :) on another note I got accepted into nursing school and I start the first week of Jan so I'm nervous about sitting I'm the class room with a sore butt lol


So I get a call this morning from spectrum asking if I could move my surgery up to sat the day I fly out there....yay....no....I called American airline and they said sure for 300.00 dollars!!!! I called the office back and now they're moving me up to Monday instead of Sunday because the dr won't be there! So that means I will only be out there 2 days after my surgery and I have to get on the plane that weds! I'm so upset...I've already spent all this money trying to get this done and now I'm feeling like I'm getting ripped off! The lady from the office is suppose to have karla call me today about the recovery house and stuff.....All I gotta say is she better low my price for the recovery house since the surgery is already paid in full!!!!

The countdown

5 more days! I'm beyond excited and nervous! I hope the healing process goes fast! I just want to get there hurry up and get out of surgery and get the results I want! I need to bring in the new years with a phat ass! Lol

packing and 2 more days :D

So I've read some other profiles about what they have packed pre op and so forth. I'm just going to be honest I'm not packing all that useless stuff. What I've packed was
Q tips
Boppy pillow
Lose fitting clothes mostly dresses
A picture of my daughter (this is my first time leaving her for this many days :\)
And slip on shoes
I'm going to ask the dr if he recommends anything while I'm down there and if so I'll just go to the store and get it there...

scared, nervous, emotional

Ok so last than 12 hours I will be leaving for miami to get my surgery! I'm extremely emotional and about to back out! I keep thinking about my 1 yr old daughter and what if...what if...I know I should think positive but I'm so afraid. I just want to wake up from surgery with no complications or no future infections. I just can't wait to have my baby girl back in my arms again? please say a prayer for me and a speedy recovery....This feel so unreal!

I did it! my experience so fae

Ok my beautiful curvy and future curvy ladies I'm going to update like crazy while I'm down here. I got to miami at 930 karla came and picked me up and dropped me off at the office where I went over paper work...The I finally met the bbl god lol he was extremely down to earth like everyone said we even watched a snippet of ray charles while discussing the surgery. He began to draw on me and I didn't really have to tell him what I want he said I'm going to give you better curves and a big bootay girl! He said he would give me the Florida limit of 4000cc. He also told me if I have another baby I would be a good candidate for a tummy tuck and a breast reduction lmfao. Everything happened so fast I was put to sleep and woke back up to some rude recovery girls I asked for another blanket they didn't give it to me and wouldn't help me put my dress on....that's ok god doesn't like ugly....so I got to the recovery house which is really nice it's two other girls here we all have our own room I wanted to look in the mirror so bad but didn't have the strength to get up. When I finally did oh my ASS it was exactly what I wanted and he gave me hips I'm in love! k

Keep up with your meds

Maria is such a sweet heart she's like a 2nd mami all of them are just be sure to keep up with your meds I'm kinda good at it since I'm a nurse and I don't want to be in pain....I will see dr ortega on Monday he said


day after surgery before y after

More pics for you ladies and honestly the pics don't do any justice for this ass lol its huge in person I Seen ALOT OF GIRL'S Say that on here but its true

upload again

Very happy

All a girl wanna do is sleep and pass gas lol

So tonight I'm having some trouble sleeping...probably because it's hot and my butt is super sore AND starting to itch! I feel the garment kinda loosening up. This maybe tmi buy hell were all gonna go thru it I've been trying to pass gas but my cheeks are too hard to do so! I've walked around with my legs spread that sorta helped lol. I took my antibiotics at 2...Idk if I'm nervous about seeing the dr tomorrow and him taking my garment off or getting these massages :/


Ok so I made it back home yesterday afternoon I missed my family but no my home town lol. I was lucky with the plane ride the flight wasn't full so I was able to get 3 seats in a row and lay down! Every one was looking at me crazy of course. My swelling has gone down but my stomach and butt is still stiff lol. I will be glad when I'm back to my old self these drugs I'm taking make me feel "spaced out" I get light headed sometimes still....My recovery house was awesome and clean I stayed at assistance for life....Maria was amazing and so sweet she didn't want me to left a finger I was sad when she left the night before she was like family!

New years dress I'm going to wear

1 day shy from 2 weeks post op

So I will be two weeks tomorrow I love my results but wish I had more projection at the top. I stated wearing my waist trainer already and it helps ALOT! I asked my coordinator about revision cost just in case I wanted to get one down the road she didn't even answer my question which is EXTREMELY irritating! If you have stretch marks I found a cover up that works wonders....it's called dermablend leg and body cover up!

Have a feeling I'm going to need round 2 almost 3 weeks

So my swelling went down some more and I have some dents in my butt and it's starting to hollow inward at the top like my butt was before...My butt looks amazing in my garment but I don't want to live in my garment longer than I have too.....so round two is definitely on my mind

clearly going to need round 2 :(

It's flatten at the top so drastically :(
