54 and Ready to Look Good Just for Me! - Baton Rouge, LA

This liposuction journey started 34 years ago ,...

This liposuction journey started 34 years ago , when I was in a car accident( broke my neck and lost the front of my right thigh from burns ). So finally the technology has gotten to the point that reconstruction can be done to help the appearance of my leg.So,where does lipo fit in ? I decided if the PS thought it was a good idea I would take the plunge and get lipo on my abdomen ,hips and thighs along with the reconstruction.He said yes we could do it but he needed to do the first part of the revision before the lipo.So in October we did that and I was to have the lipo done in Feb. but I was involved in a hit and run,broke my fingers in 4 places and had to have pins put in So now the lipo will be done April 14th. If the girl that hit me only new the trouble it has caused me! I am so excited! I am especially excited because I am now single and Zi am doing this just for me! I will let everyone know how everything goes when I get closer to the time. I do so appreciate this site and everyone that has posted. I hope in April I can also help others to decide. Oh by the way my PS in Baton Rouge,La. Is Wonderful!!!!

8 Weeks Until Me Time!

Well I thought I would post the scariest part of all this... The before pictures.. Yikes,It takes guts at 54 trust me! But 8 weeks from right now I will hopefully be on my way to better looking tummy,hips and thighs. I have also asked about lipo on my arms bug I am not sure that at 54 it is a good idea because of the skin may or may not form back to the muscle. I do not want to have another long scar because as you can see I have long scares on my tummy going both ways from previous surgery's for gastric ulcer disease. Anyway, like everyone else even at my old age I love coming to this site and reading how everyone is feeling and looking. It helps me stay positive!!!!

3 weeks Left Before just maybe wearing shorts for the 1st time in 30 years:)

Hi everyone yes I am getting so very excited. I feel like everyone else that I read this site now much more than anything I used to read online!! I have looked at so many boobs,hips and tummies I think I could be an artist. I have already ordered my garment to wear while the one they give me is in the wash. I t turns out that I would have had to have worn a "thigh girdle"with just the surgery on my thigh so why not make the rest of me skinny also:)I will post pictures as soon as I can stand without falling over!

12 days to go!

Hi I bought this compression garment from Elsa's Curves. I got it because they come in pink:) I am getting excited and wishing I had not broken my hand back in Dec. so that I would be done with all this by now! The garnet is comfortable but wearing it in Baton Rouge for the next 8 weeks may be HOT...YUK! As soon as I can post a post surgery picture...assuming i live:), I will no matter how bad the old 54 year old body looks! I have already talked to them about the next surgery in Sept. to take out these WAY TO BIG IMPLANTS for smaller ones and lipo on arms! The only problem about reading this site nightly is that you start feeling that everything needs to be fixed:) So sorry, I can not post my picture I will work on that.

Love Pink:)

See if I can show my pink compression garmet pre-surgery.

9 hours to go!!

Hi everyone I have 9 hours to go until my surgery at 8:00am. I am ready if only because anything has to be better than this wait time with all the nerves in my body on some kind of alert! I think I have everything ready for when I get home.Since I am single now ( hopefully this may help that problem out:))my great sister has come out to help me out the first few days.I will add pictures just as soon as I can! Pray for me if you pray:)

Ouch!!!

Hi everyone this week these post will be on and off! Somehow I had been thinking so much about the lipo I had totally put out of my head I was also having Major surgery on my right thigh!!! Something over 200 stitches plus lipo on inner thighs, upper , lower stomach,hips! Well when I woke up I was in so much pain I was crying/ moaning( very unusual for me) they had given me oxi but that did not even touch it so when we got home my sister called and said we are going to have to try something else. So bless their hearts they let her come get a script for Dilaudid and Thank you Jesus that worked! Now anyone ready this the severe pain was NOT coming from lipo so please don't let that scare you!!:)
The only other thing I know is that he said " I had great fat.... No blood came out and that is why he was able to do more than he thought on an old 54 year old:)" I am praying for ALL OF US:):)

Good luck Monday. Can not wait to see your results. I looked at myself really closely this morning and am more pleased all the time. I am getting there and so will you. The new bigger more intense electric massager has made a world of difference. Your pink CG is second stage, right?
  • Reply
Yes it is 2nd Stage and I have also gotten what looks to be a great massager from Sharper Image! I just pray that the plastic surgery being done on my thigh to help make the burn site smaller does not hurt 100 times more with the lipo being done!! Although if I had not even done the tummy lipo etc. he was going to lipo the the thighs. I suppose if I can go through a burn I can do this bit that was a long time ago! Just praying:)

I think part of the problem with the hardness and lumps is related to an appendix scar that was 6" long and very wide from childhood. They had to be more aggressive in that area because of scar tissue, I hope u do not experience the same with burn area.

Hi Colorado Madame, I don't know the price for taking out these ridiculous size d implants but probably about 4/5k! Because of my age I would have to have a lift and put in size b implants which is what I had wanted in the first place,,, but my doctor was positive I would love these.... NOT!!!! My mom wanted to sue him but I got very ill at about the same time so everything stopped until now! I am really much more excited about getting these things out and be able to wear cute tops than I am about the lipo!!! I will get it done in early Sept! :)Also at that time Dr.Dean will lipo my arms. I n La. They can only take out 5K cc's at a time. God knows I will need all 5k cc's on the bottom of this old body!:) 10 Days:)
  • Reply
I think the 5,000 cc is pretty standard. I will see on this site that dome ppl do have more than that. I had 2,000 cc removed. It has made a big difference in waistline.

Pink is adorable and so lady like. I can not believe you found some in such nice colors.
  • Reply
May I ask how much it is going cost to get the implants changed. I have thought about having mine taken out. Maybe I should have done the liposuction at the same time and used the fat to replace the implants.
  • Reply
Can hardly wait to see the beautiful new you. May the force b with you and the pain not find you.

Congrats and good luck! I'm getting my lipo to my inner thigh as well. Keep us posted...I can't wait to follow your journey!

How exciting, you are getting closer! My big advice is to go ahead and cut your sodium intake and increase you water intake now. It has definitely helped me in my recovery! Are you prepared? Garments, first aid stuff, healing aids?
