I had my procedure done on Friday, Feb 15th. I was certainly nervous but my nurse Carrie was great.
Upon arrival I took meds, weighted in and had a pregnancy test. All I could think was I better not be pregnant which I wasn't. Next we had photos done then I got marked up. By the time I got to the table my nurse placed something over my eyes but I did want to see. I could feel every step we did. The numbing felt like balloons being exploded in your stomach.
The suctioning was a little painful, I won't lie but I have a high tolerance for pain. I had my upper/lower abdominal, side/back flanks and under bra. We took in total over 5 liters of fat from front and back.
The disappointing part is that my doctor discovered I had a hernia in the belly button area. He said it does happen sometimes in pregnancy. So there was only so much he could do in that area. I'm hoping once I get the hernia handled he'll be willing to go back and sunction that area again for free or minimal cost.
Overall, I'm happy with the results. Even with the swelling I look better that how I started.
