I took 1 month off of work and I started light cardio (elliptical and bike) at 2-weeks post opt. I started running 6-weeks post-opt. Initially, I hated the box look of my breast, but with dedicated... READ MORE

BBL W/Salama on May 8th, 2014- Aventura, FL

I'm scheduled with Dr. Salama for a BBL on 8/5/14, but I desperately need a date after May 9, 2014. If anyone needs more time to prepare, then please consider switching dates with me. About me: I'm a Chicago native. I emailed my pics to Dr. Salama, and he ordered me to gain an additional 10-15lbs. I will hopefully be staying at Serenity Recovery Retreat for 10 days. Thanks to an amazing RS... READ MORE

Love my New Profile, but Not Wild for the Asymmetrical Nostrils -Chicago, IL

I live how my new profile looks, but I dislike that my nostrils look asymmetrical. The doctor said to wait until the swelling goes down before he can do any touch-ups. It's been 4 weeks since my open... READ MORE

Thanks, the recovery is a psychological process, it's the Best decision I ever made. Good luck ! READ COMMENT

Congrats on your surgery. You are at the beginning of your surgery and my best advice is to try to mentally stay positive. I had a difficult time through all my massages and I hated my drains, but at weeks 3 and 4 I felt so much better.... READ COMMENT

Congrats on the surgery. Sorry to hear about the iron, I wish we would have known that at the recovery house because seven go us were taking that much. My general practitioner said it's not harmful because most of it gets excreted... READ COMMENT

Glad to hear from you. I feel much better now, but my skin is still sensitive (especially sides). I'm excited to get back to work, but I'm still not cleared to sit until next week. I anticipate going back to work by the end of this... READ COMMENT
