Post-surgery women reveal the whole truth about the most popular plastic surgery procedures -- from (ow!) recovery to (omg!) results
Average cost: $4,665
Procedure time: 2-3 hours
Recovery time: 10-15 days, full recover 4-6 weeks
The Wow: While the focus of this operation is on the rear, women say the additional lipo really transforms the shape of your entire body. "If you want hips, I would honestly say just get a fuller butt because my transfer makes me look like I have hips now. Coca cola shape! It's awesome," one happy patient writes. Other perks? "My butt was covered in cellulite before and now there's none!" says one reviewer.
The Ow: This may seem fairly obvious, but be sure to wrap your head around the fact that won't be able to sit down for a good 10-15 days after surgery. "I'm so sick of being in bed on my stomach, my neck is killing me," one woman laments. Time to get creative. "I sleep on a layer of pillows to keep my back from hurting, my feet elevated, my knees from being sore and my head at the same level as my body," another suggests. Oh, you'll also have to invest in a female urinal ("it works wonders; got it at Walmart for $5.99!").
