I have been contemplating about getting this kind of procedure for years. The reasons that kept me from doing it where a) cost and b) I am not really fat, I am a size 6. So I know I am not fat, I am healthy, I am fit, but I have/had a big stomach and love handles. I always had the feeling that my abdomen did not fit the rest of my body and no matter how hard I trained or watched my diet that fat around my waist would stay put. No chance of getting rid of it. So last Tuesday (only 3 days ago) I finally did it. It was a last minute decision.
I had my initial consultation only 2 weeks ago, then one day later set my appointment and did it. I had my procedure done with a well known company that operates nation wide. You know who I am talking about right? The staff was friendly, I can't complain. The nurse and my doctor were neutral. Not overly friendly but not unfriendly either. They were ok. So of course they told me I am like the IDEAL patient because I am fit and healthy and only have a couple of problem areas but I am in overall good shape. I was worried that maybe I was too normal looking to see results. I am not sure about my results yet, but they told me they removed almost 1 liter of fat which is a lot for a small body like mine. I can already see a different in my waist area.
The love handles are definitely gone... not sure about my upper and lower abdomen yet because I am still swollen. The procedure went great. I mean. ... I felt NO PAIN at all. Not during and not after the procedure I swear. The medication they gave me before the procedure completely wiped me out. I don't remember a thing, which I guess is good? I don't remember how I got dressed after the procedure or what they told me or if they talked to me at all but my doctor did call me the next day and also the second day after the surgery. I will have my first post op appointment next week. So far I am really feeling great. No complications at all. No pain. Like I said I am not sure about the results yet, but will let you guys know and try to post some pictures too.
