Experience Getting a Brazilian Butt Lift by Dr. Marvel in Nashville, TN.
"Brazilian butt lift"
My name is Breauna Hill and I became interested in getting a Brazilian Butt Lift in 2008. I was extremely unsatisfied with the way that my body was proportioned. I was top heavy with no rear end. Therefore, I interviewed numerous doctors and received plenty estimates. Finally, in 2016, I declared that I would have the procedure done before my 26th birthday. Initially, I had interest in going to Miami for my surgery, but I later decided to go with a local doctor in Nashville, TN. Dr. Marvel at Marvel Cosmetics is who I chose to go through with my procedure. I found out about him because he has many billboards around the area. Luckily, he was offering free consultations on a Facebook ad so it made feel less pressured to use his services. From the moment that I walked in the door I felt at ease. The receptionists were very welcoming, they offered me a glass of water, and handed me a clipboard to fill out my paperwork. It was questionnaire mainly about what brought me in and how I heard about them. It wasn’t long until I was called back to get all my questions answered. I must say their customer service is superb! First, I told her about my problem areas and I showed her some inspiration pics of the results I was looking for. Next, we went through their before and after gallery which was way more extensive than the photos on their website. Then, the consultant brought Dr. Marvel in the room and we briefly went over the procedure and results that I was looking for. He looked at my stomach, back, and butt then quoted me $5,500. This price was for my lower back, flanks, and full abdomen. I thanked him for his time and the consultant gave me a folder with the quote. To proceed to the scheduling process, I would have to place a $1000 deposit. The remaining balance is to be paid two weeks prior to surgery. I made the deposit about two weeks after my consultation. The day I made my deposit is when I had to sign a lot of papers. They prepped me for what it is that I will expect before surgery, and what I should experience afterwards. They fitted me for my garment as well as, took before pictures. Surgery day was so exciting! I couldn’t believe that my dreams were coming true. Upon arrival, I gave the receptionist my name and I sat in the waiting room for about 10 minutes. Once they called me back I had to change clothes, pee in a cup, and they pricked my finger to check my blood. Then I was introduced to the anesthesiologist as well as the other nurses who will be working alongside Dr. Marvel. They were all very nice and I was given my IV. I was also given the option if I wanted to be sedated or completely asleep. I chose to be completely asleep. When I awoke, I felt swollen. They put a shower curtain in my back seat so it would not get stained by my leaking fluids. I was instructed to lay on my stomach the entire ride home. I was not allowed to sit on my butt for about two weeks. I felt nauseous from the walk to the car to the house. Day 1 was extremely messy. I was leaking everywhere and you are required to massage your stomach so it doesn’t get hard. The massaging hurts so bad! I was also required to switch into my full body garment 24 hours after surgery. It felt like it was two sizes too small due to me being swollen. I need assistance getting it on at first, but it became easier as the swelling went down. My first follow up appointment was about three weeks later. Dr. Marvel made sure everything was healing properly. I was to schedule another follow up and that was when they took my after pictures. I am satisfied with my results. It gave me the confidence that I felt that I was lacking. Now I can’t stay out of the mirror.
