Liposuction of flanks and butt roll ( a freebie!)...

Liposuction of flanks and butt roll ( a freebie!) June 23 2010- Same doctor. Everything went well.I just a little bit nauseous this time.Taking zofran for nausea + pain + keflex.I am swollen more in one side? LOL The first round (10/14/09) I got breast lift,FTT,lipo saddlebags and lipo in the chin.I didn't get the flanks done and I didn't look proportioned. The tummy area still sore,the scars still there I am glad they didn't turned keloids. Breast look great! Doctor highly recommended.

What binder did you use?

I used my abdominal binder everyday for 3.5months it helped with the swelling quite a bit..I'm still wearing it at night to help with the edema.

Hi there. I'm 3 weeks out today and I'm no longer wearing the compression garment my PS gave me. But I am wearing a garment that I already had that I used to wear under dresses to smooth lumps and bumps and I really like it. It holds everything in and makes my incisions feel supported. And it's not bulky under clothes at all. I hope this helps!

How are you feeling? Give yourself plenty of time to heal and do exactly what the doctor says. I was super glad when I had the drains removed but it was such an icky feeling. I was asked if I wanting something to relax me before removal but I let them know I had driven myself so, no. Looking good, hope you are happy and healing nicely.

Yes.especially the drains. I think the drains bother me more than the surgery itself...

I can't believe i'm just seeing your response. I had the tt November 5. Yes the drains were very bothersome and the pain pump. It's like they were always pulling at something calling extreme discomfort. How are you feeling now?
