I am 36 years old. I work hard to stay in shape. I have great trainers at one of the top gyms in this country. I eat well,and try to stay with organics,gluten free products. Over the last couple of years my waist grew,actually,my flanks. My thighs did the same. After 2 years of working out I'd thought I'd treat myself to correcting my "problem" areas. I decided to have liposuction.
I wanted to try to stay active and recover ASAP so I didn't take any pain killers or sleeping aids. I went to a lymphatic therapist,and I am still going.
I hope my outcome will be positive but so far its not. The swelling in my flanks are uneven. My thighs swell up every time I work out and unfortunately I look worse now then I did. It's been 3 1/2 months since my surgery so I'm hoping I'm just a slow healer.
What can I do to fix my swollen flanks. One is much larger then the other. My Dr recommended a type of shot but there are side effects I'd rather avoid. Any other suggestions?
