26 No Kids getting a Better Body - New York, NY

So far I had a consultant with Dr. MATTHEW SHULMAN...

So far I had a consultant with Dr. MATTHEW SHULMAN back in January he is so GREAT he answered all my questions and was very helpful and his staff ..really want him to do my bbl buttt he is so expensive I know his work is great but why does he have to add 3,000 dollars extra just for liposuction on the abdomen AND my stomach is my problem area ...I know he said because it's more work butt still 13,500 is a lot lol...I was just gonna consider it since I live in n.y and it's convenient, I was supposed have my sx in march but I backed out for financial reasons ....

Back on the hunt

Sooo I'm still on the search for a Bbl with a great doctor but in my price...and I found Michael Salzhauer aka dr.Miami and he is just awesome I watch his snaps every day lol only bad thing is I called them and they told me he is booked all the until DEC 2016 like how is that possible ..that's just a little to long of a wait for me :( ...I really didn't want to travel out of state but hid price is a little under 8g and he's work is phenomenal ..I'm gonna be in Miami for a week in August so I'm gonna try and meet with him anyways just because I feel like I already know him through his daily snap chats :D so I'll see how this goes

Feeling confused

I keep seeing great reviews on Dr.Del Vecchio...I'm stalking everyone who's had sx done with him and they look awesome,so I called for a consultation lol and will be going to the n.y office Monday the 27! I'm kinda excited. ..it is a 100 dollar fee soo I'm hoping that I feel confident in choosing him as my surgeon
But then as I'm doing more research i discover vanity and there prices are like to good to be true I've seen amazing fisher results so I also inquired to them via email and quickly received a response from them and a phone call from Margaret a sx coordinator wit prices and recovery house prices at they sound like way good to be true ...so now I'm like do I go to Florida or stay my black ass in n.y -_- ...geesh this is so stressful and I didn't even pick a doctor yet lol

Obsessed

Trying to find reviews on people who went / are going to DR for yilly!?!? I really don't wanna go out of country for a damn Bbl but that 4,000 quote is sure looking good right now ...I need help

Almost time

Sooooooo I'm so decisive just as every one who's on whatever plastic surgery journey....but the time is coming I'm 2 weeks away ..and it feels so sureal been on her for like 3 years and I'm FINALLY doing it, Going with Dra.TAINA MEDINA!
surgery FEB 9th not , want my breast lift and bbl scared excited nervous all in one I know the risk and I'm fully prepared mentally and physically for this , her work is great, not to sure about the breast might bail on that last minute but definitely this liposuction and bbl tho lol

Going to D.R

Will be in Santo Domingo in less than 24hours , my best friend is coming with for support, praying all turns out right and that I'm making the right decisions, this has been the only thing on my mind for the past 2 weeks ! Staying positive I can't think about the negative, although I'm not naive and I'm fully aware of the risks...can't believe I'm doing this
Mood: Nervous as HEll

I'm hereeeeee

So flight was at 5:30 a.m from jfk got here with my best friend never been out the country before, well Toronto and P.R doesn't count lol but we were a little confused with the whole immigration paper you need to fill out but we made it through, found my driver holding a sign with my name on it i was hyped ,he speaks English thank God ! George is so nice and has WiFi in his car!!!!! He drops me and my friend off to Medina and the process begins
Mood: Nooo I wasn't ready (Kevin Hart voice)
Walk in and it smell so clean wasn't crowed my nerves were a little more at ease, glad i goy there early ,so fast forward get blood work, gave urine sample, seen cardiologist ekg b/p done, talked to psychologist, paper work signing my life away, I payed of course they want they money, but I didn't actually have like a consult with Medina seen her around the office and she spoke said hi and gave us hugs soo that was my day went back to the hotel and crashed because I was so tired

Lord help me

Sooo my sx is today gotta be ready at 5:30 a.m all these emotions are flowing through ..can't sleep, and you can't eat nothing after 10 p.m currently starving ughhhh...sooo I paid 4700 for my bbl break down will upload a pic, that price includes driver,massages, and myhome recovery stay for 8 days still gotta buy meds and garment this does add, well I'm restless I just want to get this done safely and over with..wish me luck will keep you updated

Shirley gets real

Okay so idk where to begin without being all over the place buttttt I'm 5 days post op and Lord let me tell you that you have to be really mentally prepared for this..had my surgery on 2/9 with Dr.Taina Medina and I'm gonna start by saying I LOVE my results!!! I ended up only getting lipo 360 and a bbl and not a breast lift but I'm super happy because I could not imagine having both done at the same time ...hunnntttyyyyyit was rough mind u i never been put to sleep for nothing that anesthesia is no joke!!!! I'm a very very patient person but when they tell you to be at the clinic at 5:30 a.m and you don't go under until about 7 p.m I'm annoyed but then I realize Dr.Medina is in a office with like 3 other surgeons and they share the same O.R so you have to be patient and wait talking to the people who were also waiting for Medina there was like 4 of us but when a room became available in got the i.v and the blue pill every one talks about I'm a nurse and idek what it is lol nor did i ask(shame on me) in another hour I was walked to o.r nervous scared anxious asking why am I doing this , medina told me calm down its okay and I closed my eyes and that's all I remember , I wake up its about 10 p.m my best friend was waiting in my room and then the recovery begins ????????
Dr.Tania Medina

My experience wasn't horrible could have been better I arrived at 5:30 a.m didn't get surgery till 6 p.m ...the wait's are annoying but I told myself just be patient the staff was caring the clinic was very clean, and dra Medina does a great job at what she does, I would definitely do it again but wish she would have listened to me and made my but smaller than what she did
