Scheduled for 4.6.12 Nervous and Excited - Beverly Hills, CA

Im choosing to get this for a boost in my journey of weight loss. Im 23 yrs old 5'7 Ive always been about 130 lbs after my daughter i have been bouncing from 150-167. Im very excited but extremely nervous of it not looking natural after! I plan to upload pics and journal my journey on here as often as possible! I just started dieting and working out to help me along. Im hoping to be healed and bikini ready by June 8th! i know its cutting it close. Alot of girls on here I see took about 3 months some only 1.5 months. Anybody have any suggestions on faster healing.! CANT WAIT TILL THE 6th!..:)

SORRY to mention! Im getting smartlipo on full...

SORRY to mention! Im getting smartlipo on full stomach and flanks

I had some trouble getting rid of the extra fluids, my doctor suggested low calorie gatorade. I guess your body needs the electrolytes more so then just plain water. It helped! Doing some walking will also aid the swelling along with getting everything else moving along. What are your expectations following the procedure?

Thanks @grandrapids. I plan on doing alot of walking until I can get back to regular intense workout. My expectations would just be too loose fat. http://www.bhaesthetics.com/tummy-and-love-gallery/
Thats my doctors work i just look at which one i resemble and expect to look like that. My fears are not much of pain but of what the outcome will look like. I know it will not take all my fat away, im just hoping alot and it look natural after.

Doctor and nurse were very nice talking to

Hey Grand Rapids3586,
Just saw your posts. I am from the Grand Rapids Mi area and was wondering who your doctor was? I have a consult on April 27th. I am so nervous AND excited. I feel a little in the dark though as the receptionist that I talked to when I called told me that they "put you under"! THAT makes me nervous! I am 47 and have about 5 areas that I would like done. I hope they do it all in one appointment...not sure what to expect. Any insight from you would be great!

Hello everyone! So I just had my procedure around...

Hello everyone! So I just had my procedure around 2;30 yesterday. When I got there they brought me back to this one room to talk a little more about the procedure,and afterthe procedure of dos and donts. she said I can walk and she wants to walk slowly starteing today!!(yes the next day after procedure) I can totally do that! And gave me a little something to relax me(not sure what it was called similar to xanax im assuming its put under your tongue. Then doctor came in and took pictures took pitures and made me look like picasso and then more picture! PHOTOSHOOT OH YEAH!
Alright now its time to go in the procedure room with my robe and booties and little underwear on. the nurse gave me laughing gas which was pretty funny, I could have took it off If I didnt like but it wasnt bothering me so i just left, but they started running out of laughing gas by this time He was about done with all the lidocaine,(WORST PART) but not unbearable. So then he starts with whatever hes doing. ITS A VERY WEIRD SENSATION!!! I KEPT ON SAYING OUTLOUD THIS IS SOOO WEIRD WEIRDEST THING IVE EVER DONE....lol well after the nurse bandaged me p and wrap me up VERY TIGHT.(the reason i am up at 5am) i just cant sleep inside my stomach hurts. On sunday night I can get out of this deathly thing and take a shower and then it goes back on without the EXTRA dressing thats underneath it. its sot of like a spank this with shorts it has zippers up sides nd straps. and a big enough hole to go to the bathroom Ive Just been wearing boy shorts over it and a shirt when im around the house! Well thats about it! if you have and questions LET ME HEAR EM!! I WILL PUT MY PICS UP TOMORROW NIGHT SO STAY TUNED. all wrapped up no!.

Just took a lil walk over a mile very slowly....

I was in a lot of pain too. If you puke when u take your meds have the Dr call in phenegan for nausea. Take it about 45 min before the pain killer. That's the only thing that worked for me. Also have some food. If that doesn't work ask your Dr if u can take ibuprofin. Mine let me at I took 4. It helped a lot. Drink tons of water. Rest slit. I didn't move much for 2 days. Give yourself some time to heal. Tomorrow probably won't be much better but it will get better in a few days. Good luck to you.

HELLO!! its been almost 2 weeks friday. I just got back from 7 miles walk. I can pretty much do my normal workouts except running. I am now starting to get these little pea sized ball things in my stomach. I've been just massaging my stomach thoughout the day and at night i kay on the couch and massage them for about 30 minutes. ???WHEN DID ANYONE FEEL THESE THINGS STARTING TO GO AWAY??? I feel that my last pics i posted i look smaller than I do now. Which is a bummer! I dont really think im swollen at all, but I really dont think so. :/
I would really think about lymphatic massage. It has really helped me.

I've come to the conclusion I'm still really swollen I took off my jeans and I had the craziest imprint from my pants and drs on real self says that's a definite sign of swollen! Yay!!!
have you heard of zerona treatments? my dr is the only one around that offers them post smart lipo
Reply

Better.

The lymphatic massage helped me with my hard lumps. I would def get that done very soon! My massage therapist says between days 7-9 is when you will get the best results if you start with the massage to get rid of those lumps. I also started apple cider vinegar shots ( have a drink near by lol) and started adding fresh lemon to my water to help your lymphatic system. Hope that helps. keep us posted.
