Soon to be Del Vecchio Doll- New York, NY

When I found this website I became hooked and was...

When I found this website I became hooked and was so surprised to see so many women feel the same way I do, anywho I live in NY so I'm looking for a PS in NYC. I went for a consultation with Dr. Francis he was was really nice as well as his assistant Anela, with some reviews I heard he is not aggressive with his lipo and he is conservative with the amount of CC's he put in your booty so I'm a little skeptical about choosing him. I was also looking at Dr.Jones at Lexington Surgery I may be wrong with the name but he's on Lexington has anyone gone to him?
I have a curvy body with a tight waist but it's just these love handles/back fat that gets in the way :( my measurements are 36-31-43. I have a booty but it doesn't have volume SMH...I workout 3 to 4 times a week and these flanks does not want to go away. I want this procedure done so I can feel sexier and more confident in my physical appearance this is for me and my family won't understand me because they would judge me so this is my little secret.
I wish you ladies all the luck in you BBL Journey

Does anyone know how to post pics?

Thanks Lovethyself for all your post and reviews...

Thanks Lovethyself for all your post and reviews for Dr. Francis, it helped me make my decision to stay close to home instead of going to Atlanta or Miami. I decided to go with Dr. Francis because I get a good vibe from him and Anela, I will make my deposit this month to hold my date sometime in January in 2014, yea I know thats a long time but I don't want to Finance my procedure so I'm paying out of pocket.

Here's some pics of me and my wish pics, I think I'm a good canidate for a BBL and hopefully I can get between 800-1000 cc's

TTYL lovely's.

After 3 years I'm finally going to do it!!!

After 3 years I'm finally going to do it!!! In the previous review I was looking at Dr. Francis for the BBL. Then I got side tracked and ended up in a relationship. That went south and he brought my self esteem to an ultimate low, but he made me realize if I'm not happy with myself, I can't make anyone happy. So, it's all about me now. I'm always doing for others and trying to please when I should be doing this for myself. At first, I was just going to get lipo. So, I went for a consultation with Dr. Tehrani in NYC for lipo ONLY was a whopping $11,000. I wondered what a BBL will cost :/. I only wanted to get lipo because now I'm nervous about the BBL because I don't want a HUGE booty, I'm a shy/simple girl lol. Anyway, I started to read reviews about Dr. Salama because his lipo was the best I seen with what I'm looking for. He had great reviews so I sent a email, Cynthia responded the next day. I sent her 3 photos and the next day she responded with Dr. Salama opinion. He considered a BBL because I'm a good candidate, my butt is like a square shape on top and a little round in the bottom. So I understand that he can make it more rounder and fuller but I'm nervous that I will get a gigantic ass. What you guys think? The all-inclusive deal is $8299. My only thing is that how would the plane ride be coming back home. Has anyone traveled from NYC or any place to go see Dr. Salama? How was the plane ride home? How long did you have to stay in Miami and how soon did you go back to work? I can't take to many days off in a row, so I'm a little nervous about that too. Please share your thoughts, I need them lol. Until next time ladies!

FINAL DECISION MADE!!!!!!

Yasssss!!! I finally mad a decision to go with Dr. Del Vecchio. I had a phone consultation with him and I felt good about it. He was the only one that ask me where I was from and how I was doing, I liked that. I will call Johanna tomorrow to set up a date and put a deposit. Hopefully he has something open in December. When I saw Delvecchiodoll Instagram I knew I wanted him as my doctor. I will update on my date once I get it.

Countdown Begins!!!

Hey ladies, happy Thursday. Did anyone see EMPIRE!!!! Love that show. Any who, December 7, 2015 is the day. I'm excited and can't wait, I'm sure the nervousness will come when the time is near. Right now I weigh 181lbs I want to lose 10lbs so I can be 170 sx day. I wanted to go down to 160 or 165 but Dr D doesn't want me to go any lower than 170. Here are some wish pics and before photos.

I am soooo excited.. My pre-op is on Monday, I was wondering for my wish pics should I print them out or leaving them in my phone will be fine?

Pre Op Appointment

I had my pre op today and it wasn't what I expected. Javonica is super sweet, love her. Dr. D didn't really examine me, I showed him some wish pics so he can have an idea of what I'm looking for. After that he tooks some pics then said he's gonna have fun with me and I'm going to have great results. But he didn't tell me what areas he's gonna lipo. Does he do it the day of sx? I feel a lost not knowing.

Colonic a week before SX. Good idea or Bad idea?

Let me know your thoughts. Also, what does the Bromelain and Arnica pills do when you take it 2 weeks before sx?

Grocery List?

Hey dolls, so I would be at home recovering after sx. I want to know what should I get for groceries? So far I have on the list pineapple juice, coconut water, and chicken soup. What else would I need?

Have a Happy Thanksgiving

My Anxiety is kicking in!!!

So I have 6 days left...OMG!! I'm not gonna lie the nerves are kicking in.

I bought the body shaper that Dr. D recommended and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I tried it on and it felt like I was wearing yoga pants, no compression at all. Luckily I have 2 vadette's for back up.

Who else is in December?

4 days left!!!!

Hey ladies,
Okay, I have 4 days left and I haven't taken my arnica and Bromelain pills. Is it too late to take them? Please help.

Question

What should go in my bag on sx day?

Pre Op Measurements

Hey ladies,
Here are my preop measurements:
Height: 5"5
Weight: 182
Bust: 36
Waist: 34 :(
Hips: 44
See you on the other side!

I'm about to go in!!!

See you on the other side.

I made it!!!

My experience:
When I got out of surgery I was FREEZING!!!! I was so out of it, I was telling everybody I had a dream I was on real self looking at booties ????????????????. When Dr. D came in the room he had a suit on and I was telling him how sharp he looked and trying to touch his tie lol, I was acting a fool. Anyway back to the details, when I woke up I had a major sore throat and coughed a lot. Once I got out of recovery I was able to walk and the pain was about a 6 or 7, I just felt sore. Ladies walking really helps with the stiffness! I slept pretty well when I took the pain killers, I'm also drinking a lot of fluids, I haven't eaten yet because I really don't have an appetite. I have been feeling nauseous so I ate some saltines. They also put me in a small garment ???????? so I think it's making my pain worse, I can't wait to change it. I think that's it so far but overall I don't feel that bad. Thanks for the love and prayers. ???????????? if you have any ?? Feel free to ask.

Forgot to add a photo

Day 3

I am very uncomfortable with sleeping, I wake up about every hour. My throat still hurts, I'm going to get some cough drops to see if that helps. Overall I'm ok except laying down.

1st Massage

I had my first massage today, and let me tell you the pain was unbareable I screamed like a little girl. Nothing can prepare you for this, you just gotta go through it. I did feel better though, I just had that burning feeling. The shaper I had was no good because I had zero compression. So I went to a faja store and got the Dprada. This faja is heaven sent, I felt soo much better. It's not a walk in park, even though we go through all this pain you shouldn't regret it.

Day 4

I had a moment... I'm walking around the house, I have a headache, I feel hot but don't have a fever and I feel so restricted, next thing you know I started to cry. I'm not feeling to good right now.

Serious case of migraines

I've been feeling miserable all night... I had a serious migraine, it felt like someone was banging a hammer in my head. My left leg is really swollen and numb. I took some Tylenol so that helped with my migraines. Right now I overall feel miserable emotionally. I also raised my iron intake to help with these headaches.

Feeling discouraged!!!

I'm trying to stay positive but I'm feeling discouraged. So at the massage place they noticed that my back wasn't done, so I'm thinking he only did the front!? WTH Now I'm annoyed. I got my massage and it hurts like HELL. I wanted to fight everybody! After my massage my skin is stinging like crazy ????. I want to take a shower but my skin ???????????? I'm gonna wait little until it dyes down. I will post pics then. On a good note I Pooped today! Sorry TMI

Post op appointment

So I had my post op appt today.. I explained the swelling and numbness of my toes. He explained it could possibly be a blood clot, so he wants me to go to the ER and get an ultrasound. I'm feeling so fucked up right now, I'm so nervous.

Back from the ER

I'm back home, the ultrasound results were negative ????????????????????????. Dr. D is amazing and so sweet. He was prompt when I text him and sincere. Thank you ladies for sending positive vibes my way. ????????????????

8 days post

Hey ladies, here are some post op photos. So I have this line that goes next to my waist, I thought it was fat but my doc said I will always have that line because the way my ribs are structured. So far I'm liking what I see but can't wait for the swelling to go all the way down.

Back to work:(

I went back to work today, overall I feel about 80% like myself just itchy. I'm about 11 days post and my bruising and swelling is about 85% gone. The massages are such a big help for me and they are not as painful anymore. My fafa is getting loose so i think i can go to the 2nd hook now ????. I will upload pics later since I'm still at work. Hope all you ladies that are post op are doing well. TTYS.

11 days Post pics

Can I get seroma or fibrosis if I skip 4 days of my massages?

Please help me ya'll.

14 days post op pics

Hey ladies, just wanted to update you guys on my progress. Currently I feel like my butt is shrinking :( , however I am in love with my waist to hip ratio. I know I'm still healing but booty please don't disappear!

3 weeks post op (Skin is peeling like I have sunburn :/)

Hey dolls,
I hope everyone had a good christmas. So I'm 3 weeks today and I feel pretty good, my left leg is still swollen and sore. I still have hardness on my flanks that seems it doesn't want to go away :(. Currently my skin is peeling in certain area like I have sunburn, I'm using bio oil every time I get out the shower; I hope that helps. I'm still sleeping in my stomach and using pillows to sit. OMG I can't wait to sleep on my back and sides, when can I do that? My shoulder is killing me from sleeping on my tummy.

Just got an email from Real self to change my password!

So real self has been hacked over the weekend.! I think I'm going to cancel my account and I'm deleting all my pics.
