I'm a mother that works out 3-4 times a week. I eat healthy but I can't get rid if my belly. I was scared of lipo because I didn't want extra skin left behind. After reading over 500 reviews on this site and other I picked a doctor. I wanted something with very little down time. I also stared a low sodium diet to help keep the swelling down b4 and after the surgery.
So today I went back to work. Which was fine except the garment is so itchy. I walked around every hour the 1st 2 days to keep my blood flowing. My body feels sore like a did a million sit up but it all pain I can deal with. So Aslong as you keep yourself hydrated the swelling isn't too bad
I'm still really swollen but I can tell the difference. The only pain I have is when I sit up my abs feel like I did 1000 sit ups but no real pain. I worked Saturday night as a waitress with no problems
Today I YouTube Lymphatic massage and tried it on myself because I stared to feel some lumps and it couldn't book to get 1 done until next Monday and after I was done I started to get some draining out my right side after days of no draining. The lumps are gone and I'm still wearing my garment even though it's super tight and annoying. I also still wear the belly band thing at night. But my belly button still hurts
3 weeks side view
I'm so Happy with my side view. I'm still wearing the garment and I just started rubbing oil on my stomach to help prevent saggy skin. My belly button still hurt but every day gets better
Took garment off for 1 day
So I headed to the pool today and wanted to show off my stomach so I took my garment off for the day. Doing this made me realize I was healed because I felt pain through out the day. But I loved my new body. I put the garment back on and even though it's so annoying I'm gonna keep wearing it until my stomach pain is gone and I think I'm fully healed
Sorry I forgot to upload a photo after not wearing my garment for a day
I finally stopped wearing my garment bcuz it felt like it was cutting off circulation to my legs while I sleep. I still feel a brush burn type pain when I squeeze my stomach but I'm extremely happy with my results even though I'm still swollen around my belly button. I just started taking dandelion root pills to help flush out extra water my body holds
