My name is Alice and I'm just...
My name is Alice and I'm just starting my journey on here.
I've had much thought and research go into my procedure of choice, and right now I am aiming to have my surgery done in Miami.
I am from out of the country and unfortunately there are no good surgeons out here.
I have not finalized my decision of which doctor to perform my procedure, but so far I have sent emails to Salama, Perry, and Salzhaeur. (Does anyone know appx how long it take to get a quote after you've sent photos to a doctor ? )
I'm open to any other suggestions of doctors, so if any of you BBL Sistahs have any insight, please let me know.
About me: 23yrs old, 5'8, 156lbs.... Slim build, but I just have birth less than a year ago so I have excess weight in my tummy and my back now.
So, I've emailed a few doctors to discuss the procedure/get an estimate, and only two offices have got back to me.
Dr. Perry was top on my list, but I even sent him a follow up email and he still never got back to me.I vied that's a goodbye Mr.Perry.
I sent out an email to Dr. Duran last night, right now she's my first choice....hopefully I get a response.
I've locked in my date with the infamous Dr.Duran for January 9, 2014!
Quite a bit of repeat phone calls to get through with Elizabeth (Durans receptionist) but that's explainable because she's extremely busy.
She was very friendly and told me there was a cancellation for January so I jumped on it.
I sent my deposit, I'm not sure if Duran received it yet, but it's sent.
Now.....my question for some of my alumni ladies is: do I need to stay at the recovery house my whole stay? If not, how many days should I stay at the recovery house before I transfer to a hotel?
Also, if there are any ladies having surgery the same time as me and want to buddy up, will be there January8-17. Just shoot me a private message.
My BFF 'novabooty' on her way to Pantoja !
I forgot to mention, my BFF is on realself as well. She is Novabooty on here. She left today for her journey to Tijuana, Mexico. Can't wait til she gets back!!!!
Recovery House Booked: Camellia RH
So, I just booked my stay at Camellia Recovery House in DR.
Nikki sent me details and I just sent my deposit of $150. If you bring a friend with you for your sure grey, it's only an additional $20/day. If they want meals included, it's $40/day.
Other recovery houses were quoting me the same price to accommodate my friend even though they wouldn't be needing any care from the staff/nurses. (80/day for me, & 80/day for my friend)
NOVABOOTY JUST HAD HER SURGERY!!!
My BFF just had her tummy tuck and bbl with dr. Pantoja on Mexico. I'm waiting to hear from her. Omgggggggg sooooo excited!
HEALING HAVEN ARE YOU OK?
I forgot to mention. When I was initially doing my research, I was going to e bringing my INFANT with me along with my BFF (Novabooty) for y surgery. I sent an email to Healin Haven RH an asked if they allow children.... The persons response was that they do allow children if they do not disturb guests. The person then said for me to submit all info and they woul arrange a quote.....
So, I sent the request saying myself, a friend, and my ten month old daughter would be coming.....
I was told it would be $80/day for EACH PERSON..... As in my daughter was playing the same rate..... I'm hello??? She wouldn't be eating their meals, wouldn't be usin their internet, cable or phone, wouldn't be needing any massages....
Sorry Healing Haven, that's just plain ridiculous.
Sorry for the spelling errors. In horrible at typing on my phone.
Duran Please Get back to me!
I originally got my quote for a BBlL and tummy tuck, but I changed my mind to only have the BBL now. I emailed Duran about a week ago and still no response. My surgery is right around the corner. Ughhh!
Going into Surgery Soon!!!!
9 Jan 2014
Day of treatment
I'm here at CIPLA. Been here since 730....now is 1030am. Duran only had one other surgery today. I should be going Into surgery in the next couple hours. Just waiting now for her to finish up the other patient.
I made it !!!
So I had my surgery yesterday with Duran. I'm staying at Camellias recovery house now. The nurse here Maritzia is amazing. She's so sweet and kind. I'm in pain when I change positions but to stay in one spot I feel fine. Since I left the hospital I haven't used any pain meds. I go back to see Duran on Monday to take my drains out.
Has anyone had swollen eyelids after bbl and lipo???
Dent in Stomach after Lipo
The right side of my tummy has sunk in a lot more than the rest of my stomach. Anyone experience this?
Let's just say next time I'll invest over $1100 Canadian in a hotel... I like my television and internet and ac at all times.
Extremely Swollen Stomach
So it's been 13 days since my bbl with lipo procedure. I'm still working on getting my iron back to normal, as it dropped to 7.4 after surgery.
My question now is why am I soooo swollen in my stomach after lipo? I look pregnant....I haven't seen any pics of other ladies with this problem.....I'm also still in a lot of discomfort.....
Any feedback ???? Thanks
3Weeks today! Still Swollen like a Mofo c
Holyyyyy will this swelling ever go down? I look like I'm suffering from malnutrition .
Belly is Retracting
Ok so it's been 5weeks since surgery...anybody know why my belly seems to be retracting ? It was like this right after surgery n never went away. I know stretch marks make ur belly wrinkly looking after lipo but I've never seen this retracting type deal
