Ok, So I Finally Decided to Do It - Upper, Lower, Flanks, and Arms - Atlanta, GA

I just had my procedure done yesterday Sept. 27th....

I just had my procedure done yesterday Sept. 27th. It took 4 hrs., which was good because they were able to remove a lot of fat. I had my upper, lower, flanks, and my arms done. Last night, I felt great! I even went to my son's football game. Very little pain at all. I was expecting to be in a lot of pain but wasn't. I think that the pain meds that I was given in the office are still working. However, about 3am, the pain hit!. After taking pain meds, I am still very sore but I feel that it's all worth it. After they finished yesterday, I could see the results. And yes its true, you should expect A LOT of drainage. I took the advise of another women that had posted and used puppy pads. They work great. By the way, I had my procedure done at American Lipo Center in Atlanta Ga. I will start posting pictures in a couple of days when some of the pain goes away. I feel that this is important because if it wasn't for this site, I wouldn't have had this procedure done. I have read so many post and the pictures are great. When I start posting my pictures, you will be able to see how my stomach was. I was a skinny women who just had a little pouch to remove. I had a very large stomach with fat rolls! Ok, well I am going back to sleep as I am in pain.

I also had abs and flanks done with American Lipo Centers, Dr. Shotwell - Atlanta office. I'm very pleased with what I'm seeing so far. My stomach is looking really good and nice hour glass shape with flanks. I'm looking forward to going shopping and buying all new clothes. My pain wasn't so bad...in the beginning I was soooo sore but nothing I couldn't deal with. I could still get up and walk around and go to work. So happy I did it!

Make sure you keep up on your pain meds. I took them every four hours the first two days and then just one at bed time for the following few days. After the first few days Ibuprofen works great.
