I have been wanting a bbl for many years now....
I have been wanting a bbl for many years now. Before kids I was always "thick" but always had a very nice shape. After having 3 kids I was unable to get my pre baby body back. I had a pooch on my stomach and a wide but flat booty. I want my booty back.
After stalking several dr's on ig and snap (American) I decided to research surgeons in Toronto. Dr Jugenburg stuck out as the best. His before and afters are very good. His snaps are fun and he seemed very knowledgeable.
After a consult with Kim & Marina (who are so friendly and amazing) I booked my surgery for Oct 27/16.
I lost 80 lbs on my own through diet and exercise in the 9 months prior to surgery.
Dr. Jugenburg and all the staff and nurses are amazing. It is so comforting to go into a clinic with such happy and positive staff.
9 days post op
Bruising starting to fade. Still very very swollen and still sore.
2 week update
My legs are still swollen. Still some bruising but mostly gone.
3 weeks post op
I didn't realize the swelling lasts so long. My thighs are still swollen and massaging is a pain in the ass....pun intended.
Things I left out
I realize I left a few things out.
I am 5'7 and 207lbs at the time of surgery.
I had some loose skin on my belly due to pregnancies. And the dr warned me that I should consider a tt after the bbl to correct the loose skin on my tummy.
I find everything is still swollen but my tummy looks so so much better.
5 week post op
I am not 5 weeks post op and I have still not sat down without using my booty buddy. I am being super paranoid i don't want to loose any more volume. I don't think I have lost that much but there are some dents that are driving me xrazy. I am still sleeping on my belly and I wear a waist trainer/clincher almost 24/7. Still swollen and trying to massage as much as possible.

I am doing well. Still trying not to sit too much and still using pillows and the booty buddy. Size has gone down but I still love the results.
2.5 months post op
Feeling pretty good. I feel like a lot of the volume has remained. My hip measurement went from 49" after surgery to 47" currently. Started at 42"

Happy with what I have retained...wish I had money for a round 2 though tbh.
Also going for a mini tummy tuck March 1 to get rid of the laxity that the liponly and 3 kids caused.

On March 1 I did the mini tummy tuck. Recovery was a breeze compared to the bbl. It was way easier. I was on t3 for only 4 days and am moving around and doing most things ( except exercise unfortunately) as if I didn't even have surgery.
The results are AMAZING. I feel like a totally different person.
