Hello there !
I've been lurking on this website and have been considering surgery for quite some time and finally decided to take the next step. It always seemed a little drastic to me but every time i look in the mirror i hate what i see, well body-wise. Im 20 years old and I was never a chubby person up until now and i absolutely hate it. As a former athlete i've worked out, i've dieted but nothing seems to work and i've given up.
I chose Dr Yily based on her amazing contouring. She seems to give all of her patients such a womanly shape. Right now I'm very happy with my breasts but my stomach is another story. I've developed a muffin top and over the course of about 6 months absolutely none of my clothes fit me. I probably havent worn jeans in almost a year. I've been told I have a nice round butt, but due to my stomach it's not as big as i would like it to be. So i've choosen to have a brazilian butt lift with fat grafting to the butt and liposuction between my thighs. I definitely want an inner thigh gap. I'm a little apprehensive about the inner thigh lipo since i've heard its painful but i'm hoping its worth it.
As far as traveling to DR for surgery i'm not too nervous considering i'm dominican and travel there pretty often. OH & i would like to personally thank those who've documented their experiences on this website, definitely helps more than you guys think.
So i started my journey about a month ago with Dr Yily. I basically filled out the form on her website and submitted it. But after no response for about 2 weeks i decided to directly email both her emails and BAM she responded within a week. Emailing her directly would definitely be the way to go. She also seems to respond faster if you email her in spanish. If you need help with translating i'll be glad to help just shoot me a message.
She quoted me $3250 for "fat grafting to buttock, BBL, liposuction of abdomen, armpit, back, flanks,waist & lipo to inner thigh - It also includes 1 compression garment, pre-operatory tests ( TTP, HIV, Hbs, HCV, BASAL GLYCEMIA, GLYCEMIA, UREA, SERUM CREATININE, FULL BLOOD COUNT, VDRL, BLOOD TYPE Y RH) , cardiologist (EKG), anesthesiologist (epidural block), clinic fees (room, operating room, nurses, IVs, 3 meals, surgical assistants, etc). -The procedures will depend on your hemoglobin levels.
The lymphatic massages cost 31$USD each session (10 sessions)
If you want to buy a second garment, the price is 140$USD
In case you need a blood transfusion, the price is 250$USD
The compression sleeves cost 80$USD
Dose of medication
If you want to buy the medication in your country
-HEPARIN 40 MG: Subcutaneous injection 1 per day for 8 days.
-CLAVULIN 1GR: Take 1 every 24 hours for 10 days.
-DICLOFENAC 50MG: Take 2 tablets together the first 3 days every 6 hours, then at 4th day take 1 every 8 hours for 10 days.
-OMEPRAZOL 20 MG: Take 1 every 12 hours for 10 days.
-VITAMIN C 500 MG: Take 1 tablet every 12 hours for a month.

-FOLIC ACID 10 MG: Take 2 tablets per day for 15 days.
-THROMBOCID CREAM: Apply on the operated area 2 times a day for 10 days.
Okay so i've been doing my research on the medications listed here and im not too certain about the heparin. It has been known to cause bleeding if it has too much effect on your blood. I feel as if this can slow down healing and can possibly cause more bruising so i will be looking into finding an alternative. If i cant then im going to have to go with the heparin. The heparin itself you really can't buy in the states so that one you're going to have to buy in DR.
-CLAVULIN is an antibiotic which contains amoxicillin, so if youre allergic to amoxicillin you're going to have to find an alternative. I'm personally not allergic to amoxicillin so this should be okay & also this is one of those that you're gonna need a prescription for in the states so this one im going to need to buy in DR as well.
-DICLOFENAC is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) taken to reduce inflammation and as an analgesic reducing pain in certain conditions. So this would be mainly for pain and inflammation lol Duh. Diclofenac also requires a prescription in the states, soo this has to be bought in DR as well.
-OMEPRAZOL is an over the counter. You can basically find it in any pharmacy. It also known as Prilosec, but the generic versions have the same exact ingredients so buying the generic version can save you some money.
-FERROUS SULFATE- is basically iron. so iron pills lol.
-VITAMIN C -self explanatory definitely buy here not in DR you can save on the 250 for the medicine.
-FOLIC ACID- you can also buy here in the states no prescription. Its available almost everywhere.
THROMBOCID CREAM- you can probably find online somewhere but i think im going to buy it in DR.
Before surgery Yily recommends that before surgery you:
- It is VERY important to have a good hemoglobin level to have the surgery done. Also i recomend you to
see a cardiologist few days before coming.
-You should start taking vitamins, B complex, ferrous sulfate, folic acid, vitamin C.
-Stop taking drugs
-You should have a doctor or nurse that able to drain your liquids when you get back to your country.
-Your hemoglobin levels have to be more than 12 gm/ dl.
-You should have the tests done there to be sure that you can have surgery. The tests are: Creatinine, glucose, full blood count, hematocrit, EKG, radiography
-You need to bring loose clothes, a shirt to wear under the garment, baby wipes and maternity pads.
-You have to bring any identification to the clinic (ID, Passport or driving license) To have the admission done.
Yily has me down for May 27th. As far as the deposit goes, her western union and paypal accounts have been frozen due to all the money going into the accounts. They probably think she's a drug dealer or something lol. Anywho I have not sent in my deposit but she did tell me im down for may 27th so tomorrow its going to be the first thing I do. After that I plan on booking my flight and calling JMspa. Im thinking of staying for about 5 days and either moving to a hotel or just coming back home i haven't decided yet. As far as pictures go, i havent worked up the courage to post my pictures yet but that can change who knows. Overall the excitement is killing me and absolutely can't wait. Also if you're going around may 26th message me so we can be buddies ! ill be leaving from NY.
