Fiona bodies is a BBL for you.
00:04
For a BL. They am I OK?
00:08
Sorry. So for a BBL surgery,
00:11
I've heard that they take the fat out of an unwanted area
00:14
and put it in an area where you do want fat
00:17
You bumpy phos ca I don't know,
00:25
just like that. Hey,
00:27
yo, I'm not gonna lie to that guy.
00:29
Thick, thick, thick,
00:32
thick. That inspired you inspired me.
00:39
Are you down? I wanted one.
00:40
I did my research and it was so expensive.
00:45
Like I wanted to get it done here,
00:47
Porque. I've heard horror stories like you really have to,
00:50
well, if you want it done in Mexico,
00:52
you really have to do your research.
00:53
You have to ask people and no.
00:55
Yeah, I mean,
00:56
again, like you said you want because you wanted to have
01:00
Yeah. And I'm self conscious about that Porque.
01:03
No Mucho and I'm trying to work out,
01:05
you know, and,
01:06
but yeah, I mean,
01:06
you brought up good concerns against the price and then also the
01:09
the health risk,
01:10
I mean nerve damage infections,
01:13
skin discoloration death. Yeah.
01:17
Get serious. The fat embolism.
01:19
This is when the fat is accidentally injected in your bloodstream.
01:23
So I heard of that one.
01:24
Like if they inject the fat in the wrong place.
01:27
Tan. Yeah. Yes.
01:29
A Cabo Fiesta. And that's what scared me off.
01:31
No. Yeah. And then the thing is like,
01:33
even if you do get a surgery right,
01:35
this procedure and you heal,
01:38
it might not be what you expected.
01:40
So, all that money,
01:41
the risk and you're like pinches Nagas Juan name,
01:45
you know. Oh my God.
01:48
Yeah. Yeah. But I mean it's all speculation on our
01:51
end. So we want to get someone that actually does have
01:53
a BBL in Savvy.
01:54
Can you hear us?
01:56
Yes, I can hear you.
01:57
Hey, thank you so much for joining us.
02:01
Thank you for having me so I can share my perspective.
02:04
You saw my fake BBL.
02:05
I'm sure I don't know if it looked real or not.
02:08
Maybe it looks good.
02:12
OK, cool. Well,
02:13
shout to the Photoshop expert and yeah,
02:15
but I guess let's get into it and hear your story
02:18
How long ago did you get your surgery?
02:20
So I got my surgery about seven years ago and I got
02:25
it done in Colombia.
02:29
I am half Colombian and half Nicaragua and I do have
02:32
family out there. So that's why I chose to do it
02:34
out there. And plus the price point was perfect for me
02:38
and that's where I chose to go.
02:41
Did you have any complications?
02:43
No, I didn't have any complications.
02:46
But I did wake up during the surgery.
02:49
Like, I woke up for,
02:50
like, maybe, like,
02:52
I don't, I can't exactly tell you the time frame but
02:57
I felt like it was,
02:58
like, at least for,
02:59
like, 30 seconds or so.
03:00
I was, like,
03:01
trying to make noise,
03:03
I guess in my mind I was trying to talk but it
03:06
didn't come out like I was talking,
03:08
I was just making noises like a muda like,
03:11
mm mm mm. Like that for them to be like,
03:15
ok, she's awake,
03:15
let's pump some more medication and put her back to sleep or
03:18
I don't know,
03:18
that was like my initial thought.
03:20
So I was, like,
03:22
awake and aware. That was pretty scary.
03:25
It wasn't necessarily a complication but it did freak me out a
03:29
little bit. Did you feel the pain or no?
03:35
Yeah. Well, I did feel like when they were kind
03:38
of, I didn't feel the heading out but I could feel
03:41
when they kind of hit the skin.
03:44
I could feel that.
03:46
No. Yeah. And in that vein,
03:47
like, how do you sleep?
03:49
Like, can you actually sleep?
03:50
Like, I, I would sleep on my stomach for the
03:55
most part but when I would get tired of sleeping on my
03:58
stomach, then I would sleep on my back.
04:00
But I would have my pillow,
04:02
my butt pillow. It's like a donut,
04:04
kind of like a donut shaped pillow.
04:06
So I would sleep on my back.
04:07
But with my butt in that pillow and I would use it
04:11
if I would sit,
04:12
use it when I was driving.
04:14
I used my butt pillow for sure.
04:16
For like a good six months after si are you happy with
04:20
your results? Like,
04:21
do you regret any part of this or?
04:23
I got it done when I was younger.
04:25
I think at the time I was like 2425.
04:29
Once you hit 30 your body changes completely like your grown woman
04:35
hips come in and you just,
04:38
you don't lose weight fast enough.
04:40
And now for me,
04:42
when I do gain weight,
04:44
it all goes to my butt.
04:45
And so it just makes me feel uncomfortable because,
04:49
you know, with all this BBL slander on social media like
04:53
the gente como guy,
04:55
you know what I mean?
04:55
And it's tough because I go places and people are just like
05:00
like staring, you know,
05:01
laughing, giggling, you know,
05:03
stuff like that and you know,
05:04
I am kind of sensitive.
05:05
So it does hurt my feelings sometimes.
05:08
What's one positive thing about all this that you want to share
05:11
with everybody that is thinking about this one positive thing is just
05:15
learn to love yourself the way that you are.
05:19
It took me a while.
05:20
But you know, I'm at the point where,
05:22
you know, I love myself now,
05:25
but I really want people.
05:27
I mean, I'm all for if you want to change something
05:34
about yourself, go ahead and do it.
05:37
You know, if getting lipo is something that you want to
05:40
do, I mean,
05:41
it's just a different case for everybody.
05:43
But if that's something that you want to do,
05:45
just do your research and just know that there can be consequences
05:50
and that's pretty much it.
05:51
You love yourself and,
05:54
yeah, you know,
05:56
you know how,,
05:57
Rupaul said if you don't love yourself,
05:59
how the hell some,
06:00
wait, how does it go?
06:05
Yeah, if you don't love yourself,
06:06
how the hell you're gonna love somebody else.
06:08
It's true. So yeah,
06:09
you're right and I really,
06:11
really appreciate you coming on and and talking about it with
06:15
