I am a 30 year old woman from Philadelphia, I'm 5'11 3/4's and roughly 190lbs, my dress size was a 10. I traveled to Kennesaw Ga on August 26th to have my BBL Sx, I stayed in a local hotel for 8 days to recovery before I took the 1.5 hour plane ride back to Philly. My surgeon was a young, beautiful, charismatic African american women with amazing skills that's had some hands on training in Brasil.
y surgery consisted of lipo of the upper/lower abs, flanks, low back and bra line with fat injections to the hips and buttocks. Her fee also included Zerona treatments and ultrasound treatments post op until I flew back home.
Let me start off by saying I've never been in so much pain and discomfort in my life, I'm still sore and my Sx was almost 5 weeks ago. My entire torsol is still hard, lumpy and presents with decreased sensation. I have been ultrasounding and massaging the lipo-Ed areas daily, which the modalities have helped soften up the areas a bit but progress is slow. I am still sleeping on my stomach because I'm afraid to sleep on my back and decrease the tissue survival rate, I was informed that by month 1 my tissue has just began to vascularize strong connections with blood vessels and neighboring tissue. I have not sat more than a total of 5 hours since my surgery, I still continue to kneel and opt to go to venues in which I can stand up and move around. I started working out lightly at week 4, 30 minutes of light cardio coupled with upper body weight training. I've also taken 6 weeks off of work to minimize potential damage from sitting. Thank God I live in a major city where subway is king, therefore I've been taking the subway and walking to all my destinations since I live in a walkable city.
I am happy with my results at 4.5 weeks post op, I wish my buttocks and my hips were larger, but trust me, I look 100 x better than what I did pre surgery. My boyfriend can't keep his hands off of me and every man I pass is doing a double and sometimes a triple take. I feel very sexy with new found confidence that I did not have when I was square bob sponge pants.
Oh yes, by the way, I am still wearing my stage 2 garment, my PS recommended 3 months. I started it out with a X large garment, after 2 weeks I went down to a large garment and now I'm in a medium garment. The price of the garment That my PS recommended is $150.
All ofthis was well worth it, but I will never ever do it again. The pain for me along with the discomfort was unbearable, enough pain to last me a life time.
