Hi...just letting you all know I am back from Dr. Di Blasi...I had three sets of injections...with 600 cc's in each cheek...YOUCH lol...I am very very happy with the results. Good luck to you all going to have that done. I highly recommend her.
HEY NBB-- I had totally forgotten that you were going.... CONGRATS to you sweetie. You have to tell me all the details... and post pics as soon as you can too please Was Dr. Di Blasi as crazy as I picture her?? How about her booty.... huge right?! I expect it to be with 900cc in each.... YOWZA!! How are you feeling?? How does it feel to have a huge butt now?? Oh, I have sooooo many Q's..... I'm so very, very excited for you. Lolifish (MMH meber) should be down there getting hers tomorrow.
You are going to have to change your MMH name now for sure!
I know that you had been looking around & weighing your options for quite awhile now 'Needabutt'! I am happy for you and eager to hear everything so please tell us all about your adventure!
Were the procedures painful? WOW...600cc's in each cheek??? Still swollen? Any pain now? Discomfort? Are you happy with your results? May we ask the cost? BTW...Did the Dr caution you about not running or jumping aggressively in the future b/c it may sag?
Wll you return to Dr Di for your Lipo? Are you doing Smart Lipo, Laser Assisted Lipo or Traditional Lipo?
I can't believe that the Dr has 900cc in each buttock cheek!!! Is she huge? What other PS does she do? Did you have the agriform injected anywhere else, like your face or lips? And lastly...I can't imagine that it's possible, but do you still fit into your pre-procedure jeans?
YES NBB...please fill us in as I'm very interested in getting this done by Dr. Blasi also. We want pics. I know you're swollen so I can imagine your big ole butt is very big right now . How long did you stay in Venezuela? galaxy...how long r u stayin over there? Does your family and friends now that you're doing this?
Shameka-- I'm gonna be down there from May 9-21... And YES... my WHOLE family knows..... my partner is soooooo supportive of me going down there and doing this for myself. She was scared at first of me going by myself... but she trusts that I have done the research and I'll make the right decisions. I can't wait.... 3 weeks seems soooo close right now.... I've been on the countdown for over a year now.... but really for real for a little over 2 months since I've had the date set now.... so I thank goodness I've had you guys to help me get past the time.

GG; Good for you that you have the support of those you love! You also have the support of many here on MMH & PSJ who wish you well!
Hi everybody, thanks for the support. Yes I had 600 ccs in each cheek !! I went back 3 times that week for more injections. It does sort of hurt when she does it. I kept hollering WHOOOO..Dr. D was laughing MAMA THAT HURTS! LOL. NOW you need to all know. I had the long back thing going...SO VERY FLAT BUTT NOTHING AT ALL. I really want to have more, and she wanted to give me more. but the price wa alot higher than I was told. There was a miscommunication. It was like 2,800 dollars for me, and I had to have more money wired to Dr. D.s account. She was so trusting. She went ahead and did my butt before the money was in the account. She said she trusted me. I did a dance in the office when she was done LMAO.
SO...I have a cute little butt...so much better than what it was, but want to get more maybe this fall.
I was thinking of you GALAXY GIRL. You will be very happy. I highly recommend Dr. D. I freaked out on like day 2 because my butt looked warped. I had to ask the manager at the hotel to call her and ask her about my butt because he spoke English and spanish. I was there with another girl from Barbados. I was laughing so hard when I was telling him about my butt and asking him to call. HE DID IT FOR ME and she said not to worry, and that I didnnt have to come back in...she said it takes like 2 weeks for swelling to go down...so it did ease my mind. I also worried about my long flight and ruining my butt...I tried to keep moving around on the plane....it seems to be fine.
YES DR D...IS A RIOT!!! SHE WIPPED UP HER SKIRT TO SHOW US HER big beautiful butt....wipped of her shirt to show us her breasts....and what she had done...she looks awsome....she gave me some hydrogel on my bottom lip...for free. It just gave it a bit more fullness. My friend had the laser lipo and said it was painful but different than regular lipo. YES I would go back to Dr D. and I will. I am thinking of the laser lipo. She is a very nice lady and the nurses are wonderful. Dr. D is certified in argiform by itself. This is important, and somthing that not all Doctors have. She does alot of facial rejuvination....lipo...butt...mole removal...many different things.
I am trying to remember and answer all your questions...OH YES jogging and jumping is a NO NO....biking and lunges is what she recommends to build the muscle and even pronounce the butt more. She also gives you antibiotics to take...really the pain is not bad although it still aches a little and is bruised up. I am still amazed I have a butt with so little pain. I can post pics in a bit but some of you may not think it is that big BUT it was my choice, she could have made it huge...and I had absolutely NO BUTT at all. It looks cute in jeans and I am so happy. I will go back though. It also is very soft and natural. YOU ALL WILL LOVE YOUR BUTT I PROMISE.
OH NBB-- I am soooooo freakin' happy for you. Thank you for sharing your experience. Yeah, Tonya told me that Dr. Di Blasi tells all of her patients not to look at their butt without clothes for 2 weeks b/c it doesn't look like the end result until then when all of the swelling is gone. She said wear pants and look at it all you want because you will see the general shape and projection.
So, NBB do you think 500-600 each cheek will be enough for me to get a Vida Guerra butt?? I mean, look at my pics if you will, I know you say you didn't have a butt at all, but I would like to know what you think about mine in comparison to what you had and what you got on your back now!! hee hee. I'm so glad you continue to post. And thank you for sharing about your friend's laser lipo. If she is a member here, she should post it on the lipo board.... I know all the laser girls there would love to hear from her.
Congrats on your procedure and glad to know you made it back safely.
Would you be kind enough to post some pictures of your new behind. I am getting 600ccs as well, and have already started contemplating going bigger. Not sure if she'll give me more on this trip though.
I guess I want to see what yours looks like, because it might be all that I need. Thanks for posting.
Galaxy girl, I looked at your pictures. i think 600 would be perfect for you. You have a little bit of butt already and I do think this would make you look like Vida. When I stood sideways it was just one straight line down. I was much flatter than you so 600 for me really isn't enough but in a way I am glad I didn't do it all at once because I am very sensitive to change and afraid a change that big would freak me out. I need to do things gradual and adjust to them slowly. That is just the way I am made up. So I am gonna do the biking and lunges that she said to do...and then see where I am at. I was so flat that my butt now...isn't much bigger than what you are starting with. Although my daughter keeps telling me I am seeing my butt still the way it used to be, because my mind has not adjusted yet. You know...sort of like losing alot of weight but still seeing yourself as a fat person? I am struggleing to see myself with a butt. It is very odd LOL.
BUTTLYNX.....do you have any pictures ? You really need to judge things by how your butt is before the procedure. How does your butt now...compare with Galaxy girl ? If you are close to what she looks like...600 will be perfect for you. If you are flatter...than trust me....you will need more. I want another 300 ccs in each cheek. I think she would have done it. SHE TOLD ME MY SKIN STRETCHES WELL and has alot of elasticity. This is an important peice and I think determines how much she will do on your trip. My butt is cute but still far from what I want. BUT it was my choice to take it slow and go back again. It is somtimes hard to determine things when you are swollen after the initial injection. I still have fears that I will wake up and my butt will be flat again..LOL, when my daughter comes home I will get her to take pics, but you guys are gonna see that I am just not that large yet.
NBB-- Thank you for your opinion as I do value all of your honest opinions... I'm going to take my pics I have of various views of Vida's butt, plus one other one that I got off of the International Surgery site and tell Dr. Di Blasi what parts I like out of each of the pics. Did you take a pic of what you wanted your butt to look like, or did you just explain it to her. I'm a real visual thinker/learner... so it is easier for me to relay my needs/wants that way. I agree that if change is hard for you to do it all at once... I think you are right in choosing to do it slowly. But my hat goes off to you for having that wonderful stretchy skin... great elasticity. Just a Q for you. You mentioned that you have a daughter... did you get any stretch marks with her when you were pregnant?? It'll give me an idea of how my skin might react to having the mass injected. I got stretch marks with my son, so I'm thinking the elasticity isn't so great... darn genes.. hahaha. But, I've been slathering myself with lotions, creams, oils and anything else I can get my hands on to hydrate my skin from the outside... and drinking tons of water to hydrate my cells from the inside... all in preparation for the lipo and the injections. But, I'm also relaistic that my skin may not be the most elastic.
I did bring a picture of VIDA with me too LOL. However...Dr. D had a picture up on her wall...you will see it to..they are butts she has done. I think it was like the 4th one down that I told her I wanted. She told me I would need much more hydrogel than what I had intended for this visit, I do think she would have done it if I had the extra money...but she was already kind enough to take my 1500 cash and then wait for the wire to her account. I mean I could have hitched it and she would have lost alot of money....but she sensed she could trust me...and she was right. I will be going back to finish my butt.
I hate to tell ya this but...no I have 2 kids and didn't get ONE stretch mark. I don't think Dr. Diblasi noticed that my stomach had no stretch marks...but her experience showed her with my butt...that I had very elastic skin that stretched well. Really I think she would have done alot more in the time I was there. I am still not sure why she chose to do my butt in 3 sessions rather than 2. I asked her and she just said.."better for you" maybe results are better with more sessions....not sure.
I think you will be ok. I bet she will do you with 5 or 6 000 cc's. How long will you be staying and giving her days for the injections? OOPS I MEAN 5 or 6 HUNDRED CCS LOLOL. Just to prepare you....you may go through alot of emotions after doing it.....I did...it is normal and you may still see your butt as it was. It will take time to adjust to this because in 45 minutes you will have a BIG BUTT. Really the pain isn't bad. I must confess I didn't take the oral antibiotics she prescribed, only because they give me yeast infections and also I knew she injected antibacterial aides along with the hydrogel. ALSO don't freak if you leak a bit of blood and gel the first night or 2. Dr. D will tell you this is normal too. I did get a bit neurotic about it myself. I had visions of all the gel leaking out of one side and not the other....I know it is silly but your mind can play tricks on you. I found everything very professional, clean and sterile. I have no concerns at all about this procedure and I am usually very picky about what I have put in my body. I feel this is the way to go..as it is permanent and you don't have the worries about losing the butt...like you do with fat grafting. I am excited for you...I know what it feels like to want a better butt. Dr. Di Blasi won't let you down I promise.
NBB-- You are so great!! (((((((NBB))))))) You are really supportive, thank you for being so honest. I know what you mean about neurotic.... I think I've plagued Tonya so much that she'll be glad when I finally get it done. I want to make sure I do everything right... ya know. Lucky that you don't have any stretch marks... I'm hoping the laser lipo will make my skin snap back better than regular... but at this point I don't care... as long as I look fabulous in my clothes.... my personality will make people that want to get close to me want to see me out of them.... regardless if my skin doesn't snap back HAHAHAHA!!
I'm still gonna take the pics... I've studied them and the ones that are on SSI's website... so I've got a good idea... I want to break it down to her, b/c I'm am a bit of a narcisistic (sp??) perfectionist... and I want what I want...
Oh, and just a tip about antibiotics... if they tend to give you yeast infections... make sure to eat 1 serving of yogurt everyday you are on them, plus take one acidophilus pill everyday you are on them... that should cover you as far as not getting a yeast infection or diarrhea... Hope this helps

Needabigbotty congrats on your new look. I can't wait to feel as beautiful & confident as you. I have been trying to get in contact with Dr. Blasi for days but have had no luck. The # I have is 295-262-7089 does that look right? or did you go through SSI.
