Hello Dolls I've been wanting to get a BBL done...
Hello Dolls I've been wanting to get a BBL done since 2012 ..im finally financial and emotionally ready :-) not to mention im also very nervous.. I was going to first go with Dr.Fisher after so many great reviews but what lead me to change my mind is the bad reviews of Vanity ...so many things from cancellation of appt dates they do so ofter and their payment process..enough about them though..I have seen great work of Dr.Omulepu and im currently waiting for a response from one of their coordinators..Im so exiting ..I have a pretty face juat need a pretty waist and bubble to go with it lol
Dr.Fisher,Dr.Omulepu. .Dr.Decisions for bbl ..your thoughts?
I literally was up till 6am researching. .looking at doctors, reviews and asses all night! Lmao i first was going to to go with Fisher but i read reviews I n his Staff (Vanity ) and it was horrible! 2nd i choose Dr. OMULEPU then this early AM i was like Dr.Salzheur a.k.a Dr.Miami .He seems to be A1 all around, even his staff. But after reading appointment dates with him on here isn't until Sept 2016..lol i wanted to scream ..now im back to debating Fisher or Dr.O :-( it's so hard to pick
Final decision not turning back !! Dr.Salama
This is my final decision spoke to Nancy a couple mins ago she is such a sweetheart and answered all of my questions !! She was very patient with me and had a great personality !! I'm loving Dr.Salama's bbl results and trust him more with my life seening the horror stories of vanity and spectrum steered me away. I will be putting down my 10% before the end of the month and posting my SX date soon ???????????? im so happy i cant wait..i been up all night researching. .on another note ..i aaked Nancy anout short term disability ans she told me that its coded as "elective surgery" im going to first check if my job would approve me rather then taking vacation days off ..Smh there is the one older lady i work with and she just had a bbl but she claims she had a booty-do (when your stomach sticks out more then your butt do) and she been waist training and thats why her ass is juicy now...i still complimented her even though she was lying because everyone knew she had no volume...its hard to speak to her knowing that shes lying and smiling right in your face. .I guess she is not wantinh to be judged by others..but shot its your body your fat so show it off lol..i want to ask her what did she do to take time off work but she probably going to lie about that too...lol well see ill ask he today ..btw i work at a desk job with consists of sitting on my ass all day and i dont want to mess up my new booty lol
A little bit about me
Btw im a blk female never hips a day in my life. I only got a lil piece of ass lol..im 26,no kids yet,height 5'7 and weigh 203 i will be losing 20-30 pounds before SX to get my desired waist line look ..i would hate to go in weighing 203 then go in a diet and loss my expensive ass lol. Just my opinion ladies..when i spoke to Nancy she did say Dr.Salama is very aggressive in lipo so i wouldnt really have to lose weight before..she said i should really be 10-20 pounds overweight. Which for my height i think im like 40 pounds lmao..anyways i did a diet and lost close to 1 pound a day .It was 2013 i went from 215 to 170 i lost 45 pounds in 2 months...even 170 was too small for me ..Im going to do that same diet again .if you want to know what diet im doing or where to buy it PM me ladies. Here is my before and after the diet
Another weightloss pic
Another weight loss pic...im already cute just need a matching ass lol...
On Amazon now ordering supplies
Is it too early or crazy of me to be ordering supplies for the BBL even though i havent picked a date yet but know for sure in January
Made deposit today Yayyy
So i mase my deposit today..i got a email from Nancy saying January slots are running out. I hurried up and called and paid my deposit. I'm scheduled for January 18th :-) ..No turning back now..im so ready..
Nobody is supportive of me getting a BBL
Am i the only one?it seems like no body is supportive..my man aint of 3 yrs is not supportive...he knows i dont have an ass but today he was like "wear a dress i want to see that ass" .I was like boy u aint never said none about my ass but now u are because you dont want me to get surgery..he keeps on saying do squats lets go working out etc youll get a butt that way ...im like im going to but that is not going to change my mind about getting the bbl..everyone thinks im not serious even my mother!!Both my mom and man told me to wait until i have kids..im 26 w/o children and plan on getting pregnant by 30 or 31...i really want to be settled in life before..as for the BBL im paying it myself..im so damn frustrated now cuz everyone is telling me to wait . People fail to realize the bbl is mostly about the ass ..this is stressing me out and no body is supportive. .what should i do??please ladies your feedback would be great! Sorry for the paragraph i needed to vent ;-(
Im 5'7 and i weigh 203 now will be measuring my bust,waist ans hips tonight..these photos were taking in May ..really i has to search for these because all is really have is selfies and when i go out with my friends i dont take pics unless its selfies :-( that will change come January lol

Hey dolls just when I think im feeling 100% I lay back down and BOOM ,the soreness and aches kick back in .Walking every 2 hrs relieves this a little but my question is when will it subside?
Stomach is hard and lumpy
Improves a little with garment but then i swell back up ..example:taking my garment off to shower .I had 3 massages so far ..How can i make this uneveness lumpy hard stomach go away?
Front drain removed..My sis the MVP
Lol man Thank God I don't know what I would do without my sis..She's an RN and had the JP drain removal kit,sterile microderm ,skin prep,iodine,and that see thru skin protect thing to be able to shower without myndressing getting wet ..I mean my sis had everything lol Oh I love her..It hurt a little bit more like a burning sensation .You will feel a tiny little tug because the tissue where the JP drain is placed is trying to heal..Im happy its ouy..I was tried of wearing these dresses with the sweater like someone grandma..I look like I came back 5x bigger .I knew my coworkers like WTF lmaoo..anyhew swelling has gone down..Just got my heating pad today at walgreens,we'll see how that goes.I purchased a rolling pin the other day for massages..My midsection is still tight A.F I found a lady in Tampa Dr Salama recommended for my post op massage..Funny she literally works 2 mins away from my job ,Im meeting up with her tomorrow..She speaks mostly spanish..We'll see how that goes..I should be fine though with google translator.On another note ,I went back to work yesterday and have been sitting on my booty pillow shifting between standing up..Its been really hard ,I literally touch my ass every time I stand up to make sure it's still there..I know my coworkers like " WTF she got going on" lol ..Man SX is the easiest part recovery is hardest..Lol we just want to wake up with an ass and faunt .My man's been helping me alot running errands ,I feel helpless..Make sure u pay all bills ahead of time and do all house and vehicle maintenance ahead ,trust me it will be one less thing you wont have to stress about.Ouuu this is a long update lmao checking out my loves ttyl

Stomach still hard on the sides and lumpy ..im going for me 12th massage tomorrow
6 week post op
Hey ladies hope all is well..I am 6 weeks post op today..here are some side profiles.as yall can see swelling on my stomach still even after the massages..so Saturday i will be going to some other place that offers lymphatic massage because the lady Dr.S referred me to in Tampa said her massages are considered "deep massages" . Although she use to stay in DR and work for Dr.Cabral..I feel like by 12 massages i shouldn't have these lumps and hardness..I pay $50 2-3 times a week. She's a sweetheart and I am seeing improvement but its little improvement..some one also said the deep massages may be causing even more swelling..Cant wait for it to go down so I can really see my shape :-)
How my Inflammation looks while sitting..2 weeks shy from being 2 months post op ..12th massage i feel like i wasnt my money on massages that arent working..Please any one if u know a Massage therapist in Tampa that does lipo massages like me know
