Plastic Surgery News with Dr. Mendieta
‘Best Friends’ Procedure: Brazilian Butt Lift
(AKA: BBL Plastic Surgery)
These two best friends do everything together, and we mean EVERYTHING! Madelyn Schick and Jacquelyn Fonseca got (get ready for this) butt lifts in Miami together.*
“We wanted to look like Kim Kardashian, so we went to Dr. Constantino Mendieta!“*
“We did this, (breast augmentation) and now we’re gonna do this!” (butt augmentation) | The Orlando natives both wanted more curvaceous backsides. Their inspiration? A photo of Kim Kardashian with a glass of champagne perched on her derriere.
“We wanted to look like Kim Kardashian,” they told us.
Heading into Surgery
The BFF’S headed to Miami plastic surgeon Constantino Mendieta. Dr. Mendieta is going to remove fat from their bodies and inject it into their buttocks. The ladies actually had to pack on the pounds for the procedure.* Madelyn told INSIDE EDITION, “I ate two ice creams a day.”
They gained eight pounds each! Jacquelyn said to INSIDE EDITION, “This is the first time that I’m actually excited that I gained weight.”
Dr. Mendieta marked the places where fat will be removed and transferred to their booties. He said, “She’s got a little bit more than you do, so your butt can go bigger.”*
Then, they were ready for surgery and gave each other a goodbye hug. “I love you. I’ll see you when you come out,” Jacquelyn told her BFF.
Madelyn went in first. In the operating room, Dr. Mendieta did liposuction to remove fat from her stomach, hips, thighs and arms. Then, three pounds of fat was injected into her butt. Dr. Mendietta told INSIDE EDITION, “Fat is liquid gold for a plastic surgeon.”
Three hours later, Madelyn was zipped into a full body girdle. Still asleep from the anesthesia, she was covered with blankets and wheeled out of the operating room (as her best friend Jacquelyn was wheeled in). “I’m sure you’ll look great!” Jacquelyn said to her BFF. Then, Jacquelyn went through the exact same procedure.
Jacquelyn was wheeled into recovery to rest up next to her bestie. Soon both girls awoke, but still groggy. Two hours later they were ready to go home.* “Hi BFF!” Jacquelyn said to Madelyn as she got in the car.
So how did the surgeries turn out?
We caught up with the Madelyn and Jacquelyn six weeks later. They showed off their new bodies in bikinis. It’s a major change for the best friends.* Their new curves don’t quite fit into their old jeans. So they went shopping for new clothes. Now these BFFS have more in common than ever!* They screamed to INSIDE EDITION, “We plumped it up, whoo!”*
