Hi ladies!! I'm excited about the procedure but some unexpected changes happened with my family's schedule, so I'm looking to change my dates so everything at home will be covered while I'm out of town. So if anyone needs a later date... let me know. Thanks so much.

Here are my thoughts ( I posted this on missmiami's thread as well :-) )
I know that aggresssive lipo comes with the risk of seromas, but I have a theory. After surgery our bodies are constantly filling with fluid in the lipo areas to heal itself, if we were able to keep compression on it, or in other words [bold] don't remove the compression in the torso area for at least a week so that the skin has a chance of reattaching to the tissue better[/bold] (no showers -maybe sponge baths for a week but torso has to remain compressed). It seems that as soon as the garment comes off, the fluid immediately fills those spaces preventing or slowing the skin and tissue reattachment process and increasing the risk of seromas. I wish we could get our massages with the garment on for the first week.... I'm sure there's probably problems with leaving compression on the lipo areas for 7 days, but it seems like taking it off causes so many problems. This would be more preventative and wouldn't be helpful if the seroma has already developed...
Would love to hear what you ladies think!

I'm trying real real hard not to fall in love with my swollen size, but I can't help it .. lol. I received 1100ccs and have no idea how many ccs were removed, but I like the size, even though the day after surgery, I thought it was too big and wanted it to go down some. Back at home.. thank goodness, but when I was fresh out of recovery, I kept asking myself "how in the world did Nini walk for 2 hours!" haha I walked my 15 minutes every hour or 2 and couldn't wait to get back to bed :-)
For those who will be using a nurse.... I used Best Care and received a really nice nurse, HOWEVER she kept asking to leave before her 48hrs were up....1 day to her was 8pm to 8am :o .. LOL! (this was very irritating... she did this both mornings)
I thought coming home was going to be tough, but thank goodness it wasn't for me...and this whole experience has made me very thankful for my family. I have so much catching up to do, all the new reviews and updates!! FabNewMe, it's good to see you updating and thank you so much for encouraging me when I was so discouraged!
