I'm So Happy I Did It! - Baltimore, MD

I'm 5 days post op and I have had no complications...

I'm 5 days post op and I have had no complications. I believe the biggest factor in this decision is choosing your surgeon. During the procedure I was a bit loopy and I wanted to relax and sleep. What I felt wasn't pain exactly, but more like hard tickling. I felt a poke once on my hip bone but not a stick, just a poke. I was so worried about pain, and it was fine. Post op, no bruising except for a quarter size spot at one incision site. I started swelling a bit on day 2, and took just one pain pill. Day 2 was the hardest, day 3 I woke up much better. I have been up walking around with no real problems. I'm at day 5 now and still a bit tender and swollen. I had a big pouffy belly that is GONE:) I'm so happy I did this for myself, I weighed myself yesterday and I've lost 5 lbs. Estatic!! Please choose you Dr wisely, good luck!

2 weeks and feeling great, still a bit swollen but...

2 weeks and feeling great, still a bit swollen but not tender. I have noticed a few bumps, which my Dr said would be expected. I am massaging my stomach twice a day to help smooth them and increase circulation. I'm trained in lymphatic massage which has helped to relieve swelling. My stomach is still hard and my results are starting to show a little more everyday.
Hi! So I hope you still see this even though you did your procedure almost 2 years ago but Ian really interested in lymphatic massage but I don't know where or how to start. Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated :)
