Brazilian butt lift, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, lipo - Tijuana, Mexico
Hello:) I am 29 years old and after years of...
This is what I look like now 2.4.2014
Before pic back view...ewww
24 days left...
20 days left...
10 days left..
I went to get my labs and EKG, they both came back good my hemoglobin was at 14 the ps is happy that it went up from 12.9 in about a months time.
As you guys know I have been debating about getting all this work done at one time and through prayer and talking to God I am feeling confidant with going through with it. I am currently weighing 153 (I had went up to 155) and I also had my husband help me measure my waist, belly, arms butt and legs (I posted the picture of my measurements) I am eating healthy with my green juices and I am hoping to lose a few more pounds but we'll see.
I also had a chance to check out the hospital where the surgery will be done at, I was a little taken back by it but my husband reminded me that it's not the U.S. (Which is true) but it is better than the hospitals I have seen in San Luis Mexico where I visit often.
Dra. Balza has been amazing, we talk once a week and she has really given me piece of mind and God has answered my prayers!!!!
It's official ladies....
I have seen many ladies buy lots of supplies to prepare for surgery, can you ladies help me with a list of the must haves please!!!! Thank you!!!!!
29 left.....just finished packing
I just got done packing all my clothes (and hubby's) and little things we will need...I also finished doing my kids easter baskets along with the Easter eggs for tomorrow...I haven't stopped all day, went grocery shopping, did laundry, re-twisted my son's dreads (took me 3 hours), had my kids practice their easter poems for church tomorrow, finished homework that is due tomorrow...I am so thankful that God gave me the strength to do everything I needed today.... as I'm typing right now I'm starting to get anxiety again (I hate this feeling) I just don't want to leave my babies or my hubby all for this want...I guess I better go pray, I need God's touch again?
I'll keep you ladies posted... we'll be leaving to San Diego tomorrow after church
10 hour's left...
I'll be waking up at 5 am to meet our driver at the airport at 6 15 am...keep me in your prayers!!!!!
I'm not in pain but def. uncomfortable, I had rectus abdominis (when your ab muscles are very separated) and she also found a umbilical hernia. The nurses are great but they don't compare to the love of my life, he's amazing and the best nurse thus far. I'll take some good pictures when they change the stuff tomorrow

7 liters of fat sucked out lol
pictures from yesterday. .1 day after surgery
4 days post op
So far I am happy with my surgeons work, I just want to get rid of this darn drain...
I almost forgot to mention that yesterday was the first time I pooped, and I haven't had to take anything for it and I didn't have to push hard either...today I pooped twice..I am super happy about that:)
4 1/2 weeks post op
I am now 4 1/2 weeks post op. As I mentioned in a previous update my husband took two weeks off work to help me and my mom was here as well, then stayed the third week to help me. Having to depend on others was very emotional for me but at the same time it made me realize how blessed we really are and how we add human beings take the most valuable things in life for granted. There were a few nights that I cried at night because I couldn't wipe my own butt nor feed myself, I am so greatful to be able to do those things for myself again. My hubby and I are still showering together every night, and he helps me wash my hair and my body.
This week I realized that I can finally stand straight, i have been off pain meds after a week and a half and I just had my drains out May 10th. that was the best day ever (I finally know the great feeling of being free ladies????) I did have to have my lower back drained 3 times and one of those times my Dr drained 236 ccs the last time which was May 10th she drained 120 something ccs. I'm still swollen but I am seeing a huge difference in my body I am 2 inches smaller in my waist from before the sx and an inch smaller in each arm (and I didn't even have lipo on my arms) I am weighing 149 and my goal was 145 but today I decided to make it 140.
I am still numb from my boobs down, I have a burning sensation on my lower back and side (ribs down) which in sure is from the lipo, i also have a few areas that feel hard (Dra. Balza said it will slowly go back to normal) and I hate that lol.
My belly button was giving me a hard time healing after the stitches were removed May 10th (I'll post pics right now) but it's doing better now and I also had a dark scab on my left side that fell off after a long shower lol two days ago and it looked scary lol but my Dr reassured me that it was okay and it is coming along.
My right boob is also taking its sweet time dropping but as you post op ladies know it's completely normal, but for the new ladies that can happen because the peck muscle you use more (right/left handed) will be bigger which can often push the implant upward; I do notice after using my right hand that my implant will move back up a little, which is the reason my Dr wants me to chill a little more lol with using that arm.
I have bought 3 pair of jeans already and a few shirts and I love how they fit, I can't wait for the swelling to go down even more lol... love making is good but it'll be better once I can do more lol I cannot complain with anything right now...i am in love with the new body
The naked picture i post up right now are from almost two weeks ago I'll have my hubbs take new ones tomorrow.
Pics with my cg on (a few nights ago)
I'm wearing an under shirt and epi-foam
more pics ladiea
I am beyond pleased with the work that Dr. Balza did, I still get very swollen but I love everything....i am 9 lbs from my new goal weight but I love being short and thick in all the right places, and that's how I want to keep it????
5 week 1 day post op
As for my healing, everything is going along as expected, I still swell (I'm so over this) but that's expected I have haven't loss more weight. I can't wait for my tt and bb completely dry out so I can start doing a little bit of workouts not being able to workout is driving me insane, my husband thinks I'm crazy but I feel like I'm going to gain weight if I don't do something Lil
A few days ago I started cleaning again and I have say that I over did it, and I only cleaned two bathrooms, kitchen my room and did a bit of laundry....listen to ur bodies ladies don't be like me
I have had moments where I wished my boobs and butt were bigger but everyone says they look huge, my mom and sisters say the pictures I give you all do no justice to the actual work lol but I'm not sure lol I did get my boobs measured and found out I am a 38 D, so I won't be getting a second boob job.
Here are some pic for you all to see
I just hit my 4 month post op on August 21st and I have not had any real big changes to report, i did see Dr. Balza on Friday August 1st and she is happy with the results, as am I but I did have one concern with my lower abdomin which still swells from time to time but I also think there is some fat that will need lipo or I might be able to get rid of on my own once she says I can work out lol, i did bring this up with her and she mentioned that we have to wait till at least my six month post op check up and then she will determine if it'll need lipo...
I am very pleased with everything, there are times when I think I want another fat transfer to my butt and I want bigger boobs but I need to let ever thing settle and I might reconsider at my one year post op appointment.....
I'll post some pic for you guys in just a few
Two year post op
I hate to say that I have gained weight (just being a fatty) and my butt is huge!!! I just started to work out again and I am hoping on losing just a few pounds but my main goal is to tone my body. I am planning on doing a round 2 on my butt (if the weight loss affects it) and I am 100% sure I want bigger boobs with a mini lift. I am currently at work but I will be posting pictures for you all!!!
Dra. Balza is one in 10 million. I was in touch with her (not her staff) from the time I made my first call back in November, we stayed in touch for months and after my surgery she called me every day for the first weeks. Her work is amazing she truly cares for her patients!!!!!
