Still Nervous but See Results - Alexandria, VA
What a journey, I have been researching this...
I had a two hour drive home, so I am glad that they gave me a few pads to put in the car. " YOU WILL LEAK". lol.........Ok, so I was happy because my leaking was close to none after the first 9 hours, and I had no leakage at all from the top incisions. The pain and discomfort was the night following the surgery. PLEASE HAVE SOMEONE WITH YOU, and take your medication every for hours. It day two for me and although, I am sore and still uncomfortable, I am not in the pain I was in yesterday.
Oh! the compression garment is not so bad, but the white garment that goes over that is a killer when you sleep. I hope to do better tonight, because last night I had to take it off in the middle of the night, although I do think it helps with the swelling. When I have on the compression garment, I can see the curves and my girlfriends say the notice a difference already, But I still look fat in the front, and feel like I need a belly message " no seriously" and I wounder if it allowed. I am just so SORE!!!!!! I wanted to take pictures today but , I will not have anyone here to help mt get back into this damn garment; i have a house full of boys, but my sister will be here to help me tomorrow. the first day after surgery i need some serious help, and I would not have been able to do it with out the help of my family.
I will post picture soon, I have some before and I will give you some after; am actually looking forward to seeing the results too. My cousin asked me if I would do it again, and I told her to ask me an six week. I will see if the gain out weighed the pain.

This is my second review on Dr. Segev, the first review I did with my phone and really do not no if it worked. He seem like a laid back kind of dude and I like him. I realized I like him more the day of my procedure. When I first meet him it was for the consultation and I really didn't have anything really good or bad to say about him. He had me in and out of his office after asking a few questions about my health and what I expected.In the end, he told me he could get me down two dress sizes and the numbing portion of the procedure would be painful. He said many of his clients said it felt like a tat, and when he began the numbing process on the day of the procedure I thought " oh its not worst then a tat, this is fine". I was wrong and so was his clients ( LOL).I guess it would depend on what area of the body he had to numb..........OK, back to the doctor! his staff was awesome and the office was great ( clan and professional). The day of the procedure he didn't talk much in the beginning because he was perfecting his craft and I respect that. However, towards the end he talked more and he always responded to me when i made a comment or asked a question. He bedside manner was excellent and that is very, very important to me. Would I recommend someone to him, yes I would; he was down to earth and I liked him.
