Went to my consultation today with Dr Ewart August Plastic Surgery. The staff was great and friendly. Took my hubby with me because he hasnt been 100% sold on me getting this procedure to wanted to Dr to discuss all options, procedure etc. He left feeling better than when he arrived. We went ahead and scheduled the surgery for the 31st with my post op on the 28th. I live in Charlotte NC 2 1/2 hours away. Not a bad drive though. Will keep everyone posted on my Post Op and the results before and after photos of the procedure. I think Im going with 500-550 cc's. Not a small girl so wanna make it count. Please offer any encouragement or advice.

Day of treatment
Day 1 had my procedure this morning. In a good amount of pain right now but it's bearable. Huge difference in my appearance. Hope it goes down just a little which I'm sure it will.
DAY 2. FEELING BETTER. THREW EVERYTHING UP YESTERDAY SO PAIN MEDS DIDNT STAY DOWN BUT IM HOLDING THEM NOW SO I FEEL MUCH BETTER. REALLY STIFF NOT ABLE TO DO MUCH MOVING. IT HAS IN FACT GONE DOWN SOME SO IT LOOKS MUCH MORE NORMAL AND I THINK IM GOING TO BE VERY HAPPY WITH IT. PAIN MEDS A MUST TO BE COMFORTABLE AT ALL.AND EVERY 4 HOURS A MUST. BEST TO STAY AHEAD OF THE PAIN. MY HUBBY IS TAKING GOOD CARE OF ME. WILL UPLOAD MY BEFORE PICS TODAY AND WILL UPLOAD AFTER AS SOON AS THE DOC GIVES PERMISSION TO REMOVE THE GARMET.
What a difference a day makes
Feeling MUCH better today. Getting around much better. No where near the same amounts of pain as day 1 and 2. Feel like things are looking up. Love the look already although not allowed to remove my garmet until post op but the projection is AWESOME..... had to up my fluid intake because of I sipping instead of drinking. Hopefully tomorrow will be even better
Day 4 post op. Sneak peak photos. Up and getting around today. Good walk this morning. Sneak peak of post surgery dr not allowing me to remove garmet so only showing a little. huge difference i think i love it
post op tomorrow
Post op appointment tomorrow. Having drains removed. Feeling good. Pain is no more just stiff and tightness. Can't wait to be cleared to shower tomorrow and then I'll take some good pics of the results so far. Looking great so glad I went with the size I did. Not too much but just enough. Happy overall. More photos to come tomorrow. Pretty sure I'll be able to give this experience a thumbs up at the end of the day:-)
Drains finally out
Drains are out. Feeling good. Healing well. Still have to go back in a couple weeks to have my suchers removed but I feel great. Took my first shower today since I had surgery threw my garmet in the washing machine. Feeling like a new women. Just wondering how to get the black markings off....lol....Updated photos attached
4 weeks post op 11 lbs lighter
I'm 4 weeks 3 days post op. Had a minor set back with the opening of my wound. Had to allow it to heal back on its own which has been a slow process but it almost completely closed now. Took another round of antibiotics and keeping the wound clean and dressed has done the trick. Started the super shred diet week 1 and I'm down 11 pounds. The smaller I'm getting the bigger my bum:-) appears to be spreading out as I'm guessing my muscle is relaxing and allowing the implants to take their place. Looks great thus far and I think once I'm healed completely I will be 100% satisfied. The healing process has been lengthy though. Work from home had I needed to go into an office and work or on a job it would have likely been very difficult.
