24 Yrs Old, Mom, Future Pantoja Doll, BBL. Mexico, MX

Hi everyone, so a little about myself. I am a mom...

Hi everyone, so a little about myself. I am a mom of 4, but have had 5 full term pregnancies. I am a young mother, 24. I am happily married to my wonderful husband.

So I have been doing my research for quite sometime and let me tell you, Realself has truly helped me with choosing the right doctor for me!! All the ladies who post their experiences, before/after pictures, and let us be apart of your journey ... You guys are amazing! Well, I have chosen to go with Dr. Salvador Pantoja. His work is amazing and speaks for itself. I have been speaking with Nadia and I have only wonderful things to say about this office!! They ALWAYS respond within 24hrs, they are very knowledgeable and informative, they truly do care about their patients, and they tell you everything up front (which I love!! No beating around the bush). I am planning on having a BBL, with a possible Tummy Tuck. I am kind of nervous about having both procedures done at the same time. (I am not sure how much pain I could handle). How has everyone felt after having both procedures done?? Does it feel like when you have a Caesarean?? I will continue to post more as my journey continues!! June 2016 come sooner!!!

Calling all bbl veterans!!

This question is to all the bbl veterans:

1. Do you think a recovery home is needed?? Or is a hotel fine??

2. How many days do I need to stay before I can fly home (Texas)?? Ex. If I have surgery on Monday, when will the doctor clear me to fly?? (approximately)

Thanks ahead of time :)
