almost 4 weeks post op now so far so good except for my flank area i really hate the way they look right now compared to my day after picture and 1 week post-op im hoping it will go away soon because its just dissapointing to look at =(... I started doing light cardio today on my elliptical felt so good to do something! cant stand all the swelling i have it just sucks =/

16 weeks post op now, i think i still have some...

16 weeks post op now, i think i still have some swelling in my flanks, and i see alot more swelling at the end of the day of course, ive started my workout routine again, and slowly started some ab work :)... i do hope i see some more improvment in my side areas before my 6 month po appt in oct...that is my only concern, and very happy with everything else

1 and 1/2 years later

felling great and couldn't be happier, got a tattoo over my scar about a month and a half ago, I felt everything! it hurt but was worth it, now I can wear any bikini bottom I want =) I was self conscious of my scar before the tattoo because it didn't fade well for me and I am light skinned.. the scar held the ink well.. Now I have just been trying to get my stomach toned, eating habits are not that great so im really working on that so I can start to see some definition

I have been trying to find a scar cover up! I am so glad I came across your page! You look great!

I really like your cover up. Looks very pretty. I'm considering one when I hit the one year mark and wondered how well the scar would take the ink. Good to know it will hold it. You look really good, congrats!

Thank you! I hope everything works out for you. I know how you feel. On my second post op she assured me she lipo all that area and if in 6 months I'm still not happy she can do a revision on the office. She talked about maybe extending the incision I would prefer loo than a longer incision. Funny everyday I get up and Is that area that bothers me I keep talking it in.

Hi you look really good. Please keep us updated if they are going to do a revision. I feel I have the same concerns as you. I'm very happy with the results but I feel my sides are still big even though I had lipo in all my waistline. I'm just 3 weeks po, my doctor says to wait 6 months but that area really bothers me every time I look at it . I read your questions to the doctor and I feel prettying identified with you. Ha
Not sure if this is swelling or fat . Has it gone down? Thanks a lot ;) and good luck with everything

Hi thank you, my sides have gone down a little bit but I still don't feel to happy about them :(.. I've expressed to my dr at my 1 month and 3 month post op appts I was concerned about them and he told me to just be patient and give more time well at my 6 post op I am going to ask if additional lipo can be done, I hope he agrees to it, I paid extra for the lipo so I just hope it isn't a problem...When I was 3 weeks post op I felt the same as you just give it some time and you'll see changes :)... Wishing you a great recovery!
