Let's see, Last year in January I signed up on this site and had planned to get the surgery in June, but to my husbands protest I actually began working out instead. You will see in the pictures the difference BUT NOW I am planning within the next month or two to get my surgery done. :-D
A little about me;
I'm a 24 year old married woman, I run a company during the week and I am a dancer part time at nights on the weekends. I have a lot of pressure on me for not only my looks but just life in general and after High School when I stopped playing sports I got a decent amount bigger. I guess I can say that literally until I just looked through the pics I took last year before I wanted to get this surgery I did NOT realize how much of a difference in my body I had made by doing a little bit of working out and eating better... but now I see it since it smacked me in the face through the pictures.
Anyway no more rambling, I'm going in for my consult at the end of this month when my surgeon is near me since he is about 45 minutes away in another office till towards the end of the month.
What I am planning to get;
My upper back where the small indent/roll of fat is.
My hips/flanks (I think they call them)
And I am debating my inner thighs, I am just not totally sure about this.
Well, I am scheduled to go in for my final consult...

The doc wants $5,000.00 for the surgery that I will have to split into two days.. I feel like this is going to be much worse than normal? He wants to keep me awake instead of putting me out so he can move me around and get my input so does anyone have any thoughts or hints to keep myself distracted?
Anyway, I am thinking to schedule in the middle of August once I get all of the money together for my time off. :-D
Well, I had my first surgery on Tuesday, my second...

Anyway, all seems well though I'm just not sure where I should really be two weeks out and I am really hoping to be back to normal And back to work at a months time.
Sooooo I'm six weeks out, figured I would get on...

I am relatively through with pain but I am still in the process of breaking up scar tissue in my hips. This garment is now getting on my nerves so badly that I want to rip it off most of the time but it's okay, I'm leaving it on. Also, I am finally getting all the sensation back in my skin.
I am curious, has anyone that has had this done experienced up and down swelling? Some days I feel really skinny than others I feel like my stomach is swollen... I wonder if this is normal..?
So far he has been great, I have to go back for another consultation since my body has changed so much and to make sure that the price is still the same.
