He gave us his personal cell number for after the surgery in case there were any issues or concerns. His surgery staff was very calming and talked with me, and made me feel important and not just a paycheck. The anesthesiologist was SO calm and gentle, I was amazed at how soothing he was (especially since I was a little nervous). Once back in the room and on the table I was out and next thing I know I woke up to my husband rubbing my hand. I was scared trying to find the right surgeon and I am so glad I trusted my gut.
I stayed at the Sheraton down by the LAX (nice hotel). If you tell them you just had surgery they will bring you a wheel chair to take you to your room (wear your big sunglasses because people will be staring!). The guy said they get about 7-10 surgery patients there a month. Bring TOWELS and hospital bed liner pads for the car ride....they said I would like some from the liposuction spots....I didn't leak. That would be like comparing a drizzle of rain to a tsunami. There was blood on the pillow I was sitting on and soaked through my pants and through the sheet we put on the back of the car. I was SOAKED in blood and fluids that were draining from my liposuction holes.
I wore black pants and a pink top to the hotel (I recommend black both to help hide the blood). I also recommend bring some oxy clean and bleach to soak the hotel towels in because you WILL get blood the towels. Bring lots of tape and maxi pads and BIG granny panties. I recommend BOY SHORT PANTIES to help hold all the pads on your lipo spots. V8 hit the spot. The bed was very comfy (I slept on 3 towels doubled up and had them bring 4 more pillows and 3 more towels).
So far, everything is amazing. I go later this week for tube removal and pictures. I will post pictures as soon as I can.
