I am a female
58 kgs weight
I did a liposuction my tummy and thighs a week ago. I would not consider myself overweight but my tummy and thighs had buldges which was making it difficult to wear any dresses.. just loose maxi dresses.
After the surgery, I had a bit of vomitting but it was gone after the doctor gave me a medicine.
My tummy really looks good even though I know its still swollen. My thighs look good too but the swelling is not giving me a clear idea yet.
The first 2 days I had some pain. The next 5 days I only had pain while sitting or standing. Only when I lay down completely or stand up straight - there is no pain.
I have stitches and bruises. Looks like a bruises from the pressure garment itself.
I really feel good when I remove it off for bathing but put it back on soon.
My surgery was done there itself and not in an office, salon or clinic. I visited some surgeons but felt more safe at the hospital itself. Took a suite to stay overnight and the staff is quite nice as well. His charges included the hospital room and first medication (had to pay for a tube and tablets which cost me $15 later)which is another reason I went with him. All the others asked for the above seperately. Pressure garment cost another $100. Although I stayed in India for only 3 days after the surgery - I recommend staying back for atleast 10 - 15 days. My sister also did her arms and upper body for $1400.
