Can't Wait to See my Final Result - Bradenton, FL

I'm 47 years old and I've wanted liposuction for a long time. I had my outer thighs done 14 years ago and even though I have gained some weight over those years my saddlebags never came back. I finally decided to do my abdomen, hips, flanks, bra-line and chin. My surgery date was yesterday! 10/23/12. I had general anesthesia for the procedure and I'm glad I did! I woke up already in my compression garment and all was done! I had very little pain and in fact, sat in a recliner visiting with the recovery room nurses. It was the end of the day And they only had me and 1 other person who was still in surgery. I couldn't believe how well I felt. I came home and took a pain pill just to be sure when the lidocaine wore off I wouldn't be miserable. I have been up and down all last night and today. Honestly very little time in bed today. Went to my follow up appt today to remove bandages and I got tears in my eyes when I saw my beautiful chin! ONLY 1 chin!! I wish I had done this years ago. Obviously at only 1 day post op my result is still to come but if my chin is any indicator I will be a very happy girl!
My doctor teased me that I cost him a facelift job :-)

Update October 25th- 2nd day post op. I feel pretty good and ibuprofen is all I'm taking for the pain. Moderate bruising but the shape is good. Tummy is flat. Swollen but flat! Lots of swelling around my pubic area. Must be due to gravity as I have been up a lot since the beginning. Today I'm laying around more and trying not to do too much. Updating pics.

Forgot to mention: I'm 5'10" 175 lbs 1275 cc's...

You have had amazing results already. Dont you love it. Just wait for 6 months. I had lipo 6 years ago. He removed 4500CC. My lower abs and hips. But I had local done and was awake. Never again. It hurt and burned so much he could not do the upper abs. So I missed out and he missed a spot on my left hip. I was really really bruised and went away after 3 weeks but I was sore and swollen for months. This time I am having PAL lipo so hoping bruising will be less and he doesn't have to take out as . I am going to Cancun which is 1/2 the cost also.

Okay so, I am now two months post op. Most of my lumps and bumps have reabsorbed. My only regret is that I waited so long!

Dr Leikensohn has been my doctor for years!! He knows what he is doing and I trust him! I have sent all my friends and family to him for all their needs and they have always raved about him! Other doctors refer him also. In my opinion he is THE BEST!
