I seemed never able to lose the fat on my abdomen and thighs, but my breasts shrank and face narrowed. So I decided to go for lipo, with 100% from my dear husband. To start off, I am not obese or fat, I am actually lean, but have localised bulge on my tummy and roundness on my thighs.
I emailed the doctor and sent him photos and he said I am a good candidate for lipo. So I booked a flight to Bangkok. After a good consultation, I decided to go ahead with the procedure. I stopped eating and drinking at midnight. I was out on twilight anaesthesia. After the doctor did the markings and I felt the medication through IV, the next moment, I woke up in a comfortable hospital room. I had not much pain, but it felt slightly wet at the back. I was drowsy and very nausea, vomitted 3 times.
The doctor used a combination of tumescent and ultrasound method. He lipo'ed 1050ml of fat. Because I slept a lot after the procedure, I had problems sleeping at night, I was given dormicum and slept through the night. The second day, nurses helped me to take a shower. When my compression garment was removed, I saw a perfectly flat tummy! My thighs, especially inner thighs, look the same as before surgery and I am a little disappointed, but the nurse says its swelling and will get better.
The doctor lipo-ed also my waist and lower portion of my butt to make a nice line. The pain is manageable. I didn't take a single analgesic. It is uncomfortable to sit on the toilet, so I support my hip with my hands. My pubic area feels burnt but it's not really painful, just tenderness. Compared t the pain from breast augmentation, this is a piece of cake. I am going to be discharged from the hospital today and can walk on my own. I wore my own dress, a loose one.
Day 2, I took a shower. Felt very good after that...

Day 3, I went shopping. Wore a long dress to conceal the swelling and bruises, which are starting to show more and more. It feels tender to sit on the toilet and I had to support my hips with my hands. I went t bed wearing two girdles and one compression belt, thinking the tightness will reduce swelling even more. I felt comfortable with the compression.
Day 4, went shopping for 5 hours. It's good to walk. but I also felt tired and needed a rest every now and then. Today my thighs start itching like hell!! I've read that this is normal because the nerves that are damaged a regenerating. My abdomen still feels numb no there's still swelling. A patch of blue and dark red bruise too. I turned quickly to hug a friend today and the incisions on my bums felt like they were burning me.
2 weeks past - I still have swelling on my inner...

My Doctor: Join to view doctor's name
I exchanged several emails with the doctor before flying to Bangkok. He always replied my emails by the next day. During consultation, he was friendly, approachable and, as I came prepared with a list of questions, he answered all of them and clarified all my doubts. I felt safe and decided to go ahead with the surgery. I can't tell what he did during the surgery, as I was sleeping, but I see this container of 1050ml of fat that he has lipo'ed.
