Hi Dolls, First off, Im going to have surgery with Dr. Cabral April 21st. Anyone else going?...Now that is out of the way!...Ive been stalking this site like others lol for about 6 months now! I looked at alot of reviews and then some! My Story: I am 41y.o. and am a mommy that lost her only child at the age of 18! My precious daughter...the absolute love of my life was killed in 2010 and I want to do something that Ive always wanted to do...get a butt! I live with a broken heart for most of the time and just want to be a lil happy. I have made a conscious decision to go thru with having a TT, BBl, and lipo! The three docs that sparked my interest were Robles, Yily and Duran so I attempted to reach out to all three.
Well, Duran did not get back to me at all, Robles did and although Yily did as well, it was a nightmare to communicate! I got great communication from Dra Robles office but after looking at her pics, I just didnt feel that her work was aggressive enough for me. Dra Yily (which I luv her work) took a while before getting back to me but when she did, it was a detailed quote. I tried to contact her again as I decided to have a Tummy Tuck done instead of lipo (after doing some research) . Why did I do that? I just couldnt get an answer. I decided to send her a request for a surgery date and she did send back some available dates. I went to TD bank to send the $300 deposit to lock in my date, I figured that I could just talk to her when I got there about the tummy tuck or that I would speak to her before then. Anyways, The guy at Td didnt know what he was doing.....He kept saying that the recipient's (Dra Yily) address was too long! HUH? I cant change her address? Dont know if anyone else had this issue...but I finally got frustrated and decided to just put the address of the bank in the two address request lines (bad idea)..... Anywhooo, I was so excited...I mean, I actually sent the deposit...wow..So now, I wait....a week goes by and nothing, no response to my 3 emails. I did send a pic of the deposit transfer, didnt I?????
Still nothing so, I call and my spanish speaking girlfriend also calls and we both just simply cant get through to Dra Yily's office! SMDH! So, I call the bank to see if I can stop the transfer. Good ole convenient TD bank tells me, "sorry but the bank in Santo Domingo rejected it cause you put the wrong address for recipient" Huh? Oh then I remembered that i had put the banks address in Yily's slot also.....I felt like yayy but was willing to go back to TD as soon as I could get some instruction from Yily or her office. So, I start calling her office again to #1 apologize for attempting to send deposit but not actually doing it properly :-) #2 How much is the TT vs Lipo? #3 Please....I need to secure my date, tell me what to do! but Still there was absolutely no answer, infact their phone appeared to seem broken....rings once and then nothing :-(...the main menu states to press 501 if you want someone in English....I keep pressing and keep getting Dr. Cabral's office. I speak to Maria Isabelle that is a complete sweetie! She explains to me that I need to call xt 208 for Yily but guess what?...yup....nothing. I decide maybe just maybe....I should inquire about Cabral, so I did......I received a quote from him and am scheduled for April 21st...
The quote from him has another story but Im pleased that Im scheduled so I wont go there. I have done all my research and am aware of his past. There is another girl in his office named Annuk(Im sure that Im spelling it completely wrong) and she is a complete sweetheart too. Like Maria Isabelle, Annuk speaks great English and she made me feel so comfortable. She also shared a personal experience with me similar to the one Im going through in concerns to my daughter....I luv her! She showed compassion and understanding during our conversation. Im glad I dialed the wrong extension. I will keep you updated as my progress grows :-). I have some stuff to buy/do/pack etc. If anyone has any suggestions on the best way to prepare my self for this experience...I WELCOME IT ;-)! What to buy? I have not a clue....infact, Im going snooping thru some blogs after this. I started taking vitamins and plan on having some bloodwork done next week! Thank you in advance for all advice! and all support is welcomed!
