My name is Kim and I had butt augmentation with Brazilian butt lift using SAFELipo liposuction and fat transfer as well as a tummy tuck with abdominal wall reconstruction by muscle tightening done by Dr. Schleich at Trinidad Institute of Plastic Surgery when I was 35 years old, and 146 lbs. After having two children and very loose skin with stretch marks along with diet and exercise resistant fat in my waists and lower back the mommy makeover procedure consisting of SAFELipo liposuction, butt augmentation with fat transfer and a full tummy tuck was felt to provide the optimal body contouring results in my situation. Dr. Schleich was my surgeon, from the beginning to the end; he was extremely professional and a perfectionist throughout, who truly cares about each patient,s outcomes and listens to what is wanted, which is particularly important given the many ethnic variations in buttock shape in the Caribbean and the modifications possible during butt augmentation with the Brazilian butt lift. While I am impressed with the results, I am even more so with Dr Schleich’s post-surgery follow up. During follow up he paid attention to all my concerns and were able to alleviate them. He was always easy to contact with emails or a phone call if I had a question in between my appointments. He really did make himself available during my recovery. I think while you want your plastic surgeon to deliver good results as a Brazilian Butt Lift is a very individual undertaking requiring a technically excellent surgeon with outstanding artistic capabilities, the overall care one experiences as a patient is very important. Dr. Schleich is the board certified plastic surgeon, who delivers both art and technique and has excellent post-surgery follow up built into your package. The recovery was not as painful as I thought it would be especially considering the extent of the mommy makeover I had done. The first two days were difficult but after that the rate at which I recovered was quick. After about 7-10 days I was able to be straight upright, my drains were off at day 10 and I started to sit for short intervals after my butt augmentation on postoperative day five. After 15 days I was just about back to normal activities including sitting and could have easily assumed my job at a desk. I am a very private person and honestly my results especially those from my Brazilian Butt Lift are outstanding; most people would be able to tell you had some work done so it’s been difficult to slowly reveal the results. The scar from the tummy tuck is very low and it’s easily possible to wear a two piece swimsuit. I was a size 8 and now wear a size 4 and I have never been happier with my body. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about doing a similar mommy makeover surgery with tummy tuck, butt augmentation, Brazilian butt lift and SAFELipo liposuction to go for it, it will do wonders to your life mentally, self-esteem and marriage and in the Caribbean Dr. Schleich at Trinidad Institute of Plastic Surgery is the board certified plastic surgeon you want.
