TT procedure is completed. Now my goal is to have liposuction of my full back, flanks, inner-outer thighs. This procedure will complete my Tummy Tuck. My TT looks Awesome, but because my flanks, lower back, hips, inner and outer thighs haven't been lipo I'm unhappy. So liposuction is now underway. Excited to be going.

The countdown is on.

OK OK I have just 3 months to go 90 days and counting. I'm okay with the length of time because I still need to fully recover from my Tummy Tuck. Plus I want to lose 16 lbs. I teach 2nd Grade so, we start August 4,2014 which will keep me busy and time will go by fast. I'm excited to finally get this lower back fat off of me. Spectrum Aesthetics in Miami Florida is my go to facility. Dr Mel Orrega a.k.a Over da top Ortega will complete this transformation. He's called Over da Top Ortega because he goes over and beyond his call of duties to satisfy his customers. Big booties, he can do it. I'm glad and blessed my booty was big from birth. Thanks to my mom side of the family.

But his liposuction will be excellent. I have trust he'll suck this ugly lower back fat right on out. I'm getting full lipo of my back, flanks, inner and outer thigh lipo. When I'm not bloated my waistline is 31 inch waist. Once he's done with my full back lipo and that swelling goes down I should be about a 29 inch waist. Yes I'm totally feeling that number. Uhmm now my hips are another story. Yikes my hips are 51 inches. I'm looking to be 45 afterwards. My breast hang low,lol so for now those sagging twins will do just fine in a good Macy's sport bra, or support bra.

Well may this countdown start. 90 days till my liposuction. Yayyyy

Stil counting down

So we're going into August now. Yayyy October be here soon. School start August 4,2014 here in Atlanta Georgia, so I'll be busy with my class which will help time go by fast. So I'm excited. My breast reduction will wait. I found a good bra to hold those babies up. Ladiesif you look into Spectrum Aesthetics asked about their liposuction special. I'm getting flanks, full back, inner-outer thighs for $3700 minus my $500 deposit, so I have $3200 to pay off. That's a lot of areas for the price. Don't forget Miami doctors have their surgical room in their office which eliminate that hospital cost.

squats squats squats

Okay so I'm still having liposuction, yayyyy!!!! Can't wait. But till then I been doing at least 50-100 squats a day. How do I do that? When I got to bathroom - To potty, I do 15 squats. At night I do 25 while watching the news, then I do 25 when I'm watching my evening shows. Through out day I do squats. My legs are firming up, deletion of cellulite is diminishing. By time I have my liposuction my legs should be muscled out. ..

No No BBL for me

Ladies I haven't/don't need a BBL. I'm blessed with a natural booty - but to get big booty results, take a few minutes and look at Dr Mel Ortega at www:spectrum aesthetics. Com

Still coounting down

hey ladies I am still on the countdown to head to Miami for my Liposuction. I haven't been on Realself for some days, I am back at work (teaching) and my class has me so busy. I do want to take this moment to let everyone know I am still having my liposuction in October. Countdown is fast approaching

Change of Physique !!!

Well I am not only weeks away from an intriguing physique that will be performed by Dr. Ortega. Ladies if you read his website, also know that he works out of several different offices in Miami. Dr. Ortega is like the doctors in Dominican but he critique a more sculpture body. Look at his photos. He is excellent. I can't wait to go get my full back lipo, flanks, and inner-outer thigh lipo. This should end my journey once I have this done-unless I decide to do a breast lift. Not sure. Right now Macy's Bra's will lift and keep them lifted for now. So breast lift can wait. I am looking forward to this journey of Liposuction.

Ladies take a moment before spending $10,000 on the same thing and see what Dr. Ortega can do for you for %60 percent less of this price.


Ladies it's the holidays and $$$$ can be an issue and also --be a pain in paying thousands of dollars. Listen I went to Miami which was a plane ticket away, went to Premiere Plastic Surgery there are 2 offices Tampa-Miami location. I went to Miami location. Dr Howard Robinson old school very experienced 25+ years experience performed my Tummy Tuck. Reason being is because this office offers in house financing. Everyone is approved for their financing. You just can't have a bankruptcy on your credit report. Bad credit does not matter. But you pay a small fee and after your choosen procedure(s) then you will pay a monthly fee till the remaining balance is paid off.

Ladies this is an excellent deal if you having trouble saving money. Care credit is 4 to 5 years financing, there's is not.
Listen if you need extra assistance and having trouble or doubts with paying so much money out at one time. Give them a small fee which Melanie in the Tampa location will discuss your fee with you. My tummy tuck was $3900 because they will match or beat any competitors quote you fax them- so I got a quote from Spectrum in Miami which was $3900 for a tummy tuck sent it to Premiere Center for Cosmetic Surgery to Melanie at Tampa location and they accepted that price and that is what I paid. So once I told her I would like to do their in house financing all I had to pay down was $1800 got my tummy tuck done and I make monthly payment for the remaining balance.

I can go back and do more-and do in house financing but I don't want any more bills till I pay this one procedure off.

SO I just decided to save my money and go to Dr. Ortega and that way I want have to worry about any more surgery bills. Plus Dr. Ortega is whom I was going to before I found out about Premeire. I went on to Premiere because I seen I could save $2,000 up front.

But Dr. Ortega and Dr. Howard Robinson are excellent doctors. Also the Tampa location (Premiere Center for Cosmetic Surgery)--they have excellent doctors also.

Do your research and look at these offices before paying so much money up front.

Mistake in Plastic Surgery Name

Sorry the center that do in house financing is called "Premiere Center for Cosmetic Surgery" In Tampa or Miami. Dr Welsh is in Tampa Location and Dr Howard Robinson is Miami location

Days are approaching (Final Results)

So my liposuction is only a few weeks away. I am overly excited and can't wait to finally have these ugly flanks removed and my lower back finally liposuctioned. I will post as soon as Dr.Mel Ortega is done. He has so many reviews and so many great compliments that I can't wait till he put those hands on me and make me look fantastic. My lower back is really irritating me so I am overly excited to get this done. You might ask me what am I having done by Dr. Mel Ortega. Full back liposuction, flanks and inner and outer thigh liposuction. So yes I am so excited.

October 22, 2014 Full Body Liposuction it's that time

Well ladies I am close to have my full body liposuction on December 1, 2014. I am so excited to finally have my results I have been longing for. YAYYYY Dr. Ortega at Spectrum Aesthetics here I come.

• 6 months post

Hello Realself ladies, I haven't been on this forum in so long, I forgot how to log in. I wanted to let me friends all know that I never went to Dr. Ortega. I later on decided to go to "American Liposuction" there are a few locations I chose of course the one here in Atlanta, GA. Anyway this is how it all went down because if you notice at the top it say NO LIPOSUCTION FOR ME; well this is how it all went down. I decided not to travel to Florida again only because by the time I spent money on travel and lodge and gas, I would have paid a lot of out of pocket expenses. So I searched online for a facility here and came across AMERICAN LIPO CENTER; well I went to my appointment schedule my pre-appointment so when I got home I looked at myself in the mirror and thought about how I would look and feel if I tried my hardest to lose weight before my liposuction. Liposuction any cosmetic procedure is costly. So, I decided to put my mind to it and get some help and try to lose the weight first then see how I look and exactly what and where on my body I would need liposuction. So I made an appointment with a weight loss doctor/plastic surgeon doctor and he prescribed me PHENTERMINE DIET PILLS which I took them before. Welp! I decided to start them the day after Thanksgiving 2014. Today is December 30, 2014 and I have lost 20 pounds. I am out of the diet pills but I trained my self to eat right and to work out like crazy, so even though I am out of the diet pills I haven't went back to get more because I am in a habit of walking on my treadmill faithfully along with eating right. Ladies, I have transformed my body and I at this moment do not need liposuction. I do see that my flanks will need it; but then again I am still 15 more pounds to being at my goal weight and those pounds might decrease in my flanks and still more in my lower back. So till I get to my goal weight I will not be looking into liposuction. Ladies if its just weight loss you need please try your hardest and get some help from a weight loss doctor first; then when you get to your goal weight then look at yourself again and see what you need. I promise you; you will be amazed at how much money you would have saved by just losing the weight first, then look at yourself and see what you will need. I complained so much about my lower back and my flanks; ladies my flanks are fading and my lower back is forming into a sexy back. I needed that boast to get me started with the help of diet pills - now that I am in the habit of eating and working out - my weight is still coming off. My weight is coming off slowly but that is the way it suppose to be. I will post pictures January 10, 2015 because that is when I will stop and look at myself and see what accomplishments I have made. But I am not giving up. once I get down to 160lbs I will be satisfied and will give myself a complete over haul to see what or if I need liposuction. But I just wanted to give an update on my blog to let you know I did not go thru with my liposuction procedure. I will post pictures January 15, 2014. You will see what 30 pounds of weight loss did to my physique I am excited to see what 15 more pounds will do myself.


Ladies, I want say I regret doing a tummy tuck, but I will say that I wish I would have waited till after I did my weight loss journey because I might not needed it; I wasn't big at all in my stomach before I had a tummy tuck, I was just walking around with big flanks and a lot of fat on my lower back. But being quick and thinking a tummy tuck will make me lose weight I did it. I gained weight because I felt with a small stomach I can still eat more and not worry about weight. That wasn't the case, I gained weight and went up to 204 pounds. YIKES!!! So after my consultation here in Atlanta with a liposuction center; I came home and looked at myself up and down in the mirror and thought about just trying my damest to lose weight first. I did go to a weight loss-cosmetic surgery doctor (all-in-one) and he gave me again PHENTERMINE DIET PILLS and that got me started with my journey of losing weight. I am now 20lbs lighter. I am so glad I didn't spend those thousands of dollars yet on liposuction yet; because those 20 pounds came off in my concerned areas on my body. Which I would have lipo'd --so I saved myself thousand of dollars. Well I will weigh in January 15 and if I am 15 more pounds lighter and I see my flanks went down I will not even think about lipo at all. My only problem is and always have been is that when I was 150-160 pounds I always had flanks that showed. But we will see; weight doesn't come off in one area if your walking/jogging 45 minutes a day it will come off anywhere. Hopefully not my ass. (SMILE) But I am excited and wanted to share this with you ladies that might doing doing liposuction and can possibly lose the weight first. Hopefully this blog helps you--check back in January and I will show you the results of my weight loss journey
