I Know My Excitement and Anxiousness Are Going to Be Worth It - Beverly Hills, CA

Spoke with Dr. Yadegar today regarding my upper/lower abdomen, flank and lumber Tumescent liposuction. I have a voluminous amount of time researching, so I had some questions for him. My sister works for him and has had work done by the doctor already so that puts my mind somewhat at ease.

I will be flying to Beverly Hills from Northern California for the surgery on May 21st, with my consult on May 18th. Going to have a girls’ weekend before the surgery and then my sister will be my caregiver – bonding time for us. Me, I have had one child and am nearing my mid 40’s. I have the typical belly bulge, love handles and back fat. Most people tell me that I hide it well. I feel just gross and cannot get it to go away. I was able to at one time after my son was born but then life happens and things change so now it is time for the great medical profession to do its part and give me a figure back. Yippee!! The surgery is not the nerve racking part for me, I have already had a breast reduction and lift five years ago, which I still love to this day. Not sure what for or where from the anxiousness is coming from? See you all on the other side. I will post before pictures just before the surgery.

One week and counting. I am getting so excited. I have all of my herbs and I am going to start packing in the next day or two. Those of you on the otherside are so lucky. I will be there soon :-)

Had my surgery Monday. Arrived at 8:00 am and was rolled in at 9:30. Everyone was so nice - the staff, the nurses, the anesthesiologist and of course the doctor. The whole experience was very pleasant. The surgery only took an hour and a half for upper and lower abs, flanks and low back. My waist feels really small through the padding and compression garment and I can feel my hip bones too. I started to hurt on the way home but the pain pills took care of that. Thanks to the posts here the car seat and bed were covered ahead of time with the shower curtain and puppy pads. By the morning of day two I had switched to Motrin from the stronger pain pills. Doctor said the sooner I could do this the better for lessening the swelling. There is no pain or discomfort I would call it when standing, lying down or sitting only when getting up. The leaking stopped by the end of the second day. I was able to go up and down the stairs a few times on the second day and my sister took me to the store for some fruit and yogurt I forgot to pick up before hand. I have been eating mostly soft foods recommend by posters here and taking my anti- bruising herbal supplement. All in all not too bad so far. I go for my post-op appointment in just a little while. I have before pictures that I will post when I get home. Here's hoping the rest of the process stays on a smooth course. Oh just found out that someone at work read my calendar and may be blabbing. I was trying to keep the surgery only known to a few. Guess I will face that when I return next week.

Things are progressing quiet well. Bruising is almost gone and some of my incisions are barely visible anymore. I am back at work today ( 8 days post surgery). Pain is minimal except when I bend over for too long, e.g., husband shaved my legs for me. Swelling seems to increase throughout the day, but that is to be expected. I am posting my before pictures today. Ug, I can't believe I waited so long to go through the proceedure. Not going to check "worth it" just yet, but I am leaning in that direction.

Well I am just two weeks and one day post surgery....

Well I am just two weeks and one day post surgery. All of my bruises are gone and I feel really good. I have been using a rolling pin to massage myself everyday for the last week. Saw a video on youtube about how to do it. Also, had my first lymphatic massage on Thursday and I was amazed at how the swelling decreased after my session. I have another one scheduled for this Thursday. My swelling is mostly non-existent in the morning but by the end of the day I have a little, probably from sitting at work and running around. I am walking every day though and going to start doing arm exercises tonight - I am an evening exerciser. I have lost 10 pounds so far. It is mostly the itching and tingling that happens off and on through the day that gets my attention now. The numbness is weird but the areas are regaining sensation slowly. I am taking my garment off for an hour or so every day. It feels good to be free of it. I am very happy with the results I am seeing so far. I am posting pictures today.

Staff was very friendly and helpful through out the process and the doctor has called everyday to see how I am doing.
