46 Year Old Mommy of 5 Needed a Little Extra in the Donk - Tampa, FL

Hello BBL dolls! I was contemplating writing a review because I protect my privacy but after reading all of the reviews on realself and how much it has helped all of us, I thought I would give it a try. Noticed a change in my hormones and talk to my gynecologist about it. She prescribed HGH and testosterone gel. I loved the results from this combination. My libido increased my energy levels increased and I also fluffed out a little bit meaning my wrinkles were filled in, I felt younger and my skin hair and nails absolutely looked fabulous. The only downside is that I gained 20 pounds. I'm only 5'4 and 155 pounds is a bit much for my frame. I tried Phentermine and lost 10 pounds but I was still not happy with my results. If we could pick and choose where we lose weight, it would be so much easier.

I'm one day post-op. I'll post pictures when I'm feeling better.

Pics

4 days post. The first 3 days were very difficult. He lipo'd stomach, flanks back and bra line. Total injected in each cheek was 1000 cc's.

Compression garment

1 day shy of 3 weeks post

I was able to walk on the treadmill and do a light back workout. I would like to take a break every so often from my compression garment but my body feels so much better wearing it. I alternate between a few different styles so I don't get any ridges in my skin or leftover fat. I'll post better pictures this week.

I can wear soft jeans

7 weeks plus one day

Feeling great. My stomach and back lipo areas are still numb and holding fluid. Every day gets better.

9 weeks, 4 days

I'm still healing. I just wanted to update with a quick post.

11 weeks

I'm still experiencing numbness in my lipo areas. I also have some hard spots too. I'll ask my ps about those at my 3 month follow up.

3 month

My sensitivity on my lipo areas has decreased. I'm doing squats and ab workouts. Almost everyday and feeling better about my body!

Velashape 3

I have researched and read that velashape after lipo enhances your results. I'm three months post-op BBL and today was my first velashape appointment. It felt like a warm sucker fish on my stomach. The technician was absolutely wonderful. She had me stand up after she treated my abdomen to make sure I was happy with all of the areas. I asked her to go over right under my bra line again, that seems to be a problem area for me. As you can see in the pictures, it's just a subtle change but I should see significant results after the 3rd treatment. Now, with any heat energy. It will have to be maintained. I have had thermiva and now velashape which is a very similar treatment. It tightens the skin and produces younger-looking skin. These are my own opinions, I am in no way affiliated with any of the companies that manufacture these machines. The technician did tell me that the suction action along with the heat energy will break up scar tissue. I can't wait to see the results. I will go back for maintenance treatments but the price is only $100 per treatment, I would have to do that possibly every 3 to 4 months.

I'm pretty happy with one treatment. I can't wait for the end result. I have another treatment scheduled for next week.

Velashape 3

This pic was taken a few days after ny third treatment. I've gained 6 pounds in the last 2 weeks. I have since stopped taking an HGH injection because of a severe allergic reaction to the meds. It also caused swelling/weight gain. I'll take another picture after I get back down to 135 pounds.

Waist cincher and faja

This is what I used for recovery. LOVE BOTH OF THESE!
