Last month, i decided to do smart lipo on my upper, lower abdoman, hips, inner thighs and knees. we agreed to split the procedure to 2 part the first part is the upper, lower abdomen and hips and the next time is the rest.I did my smart lipo last friday 02/01/2013 at 8 am, Dr shiedeler was honnest and effeicient , he was talking and explaining to me most of the time, i was able to record and take picture of my self during the procedure. I looked huge after he tumscent me, he extracted 5 liter of fat.
The law in california is 5 liter per procedure, this is why he couldn't do my hips at the same time, so we decided to focus on one area at the time and extract the most of it instead of focusing on 2 areas and do 3/4 of the job. during the procedure the pain wasn't much , when i felt it , i notified Dr Shiedeler and he numb it right away plus the iv solution has anthesitic medication in it so tha helped a lot
Any way, at the end of the procedure which was at 12 noon i noticed a big difference in my upper and lower abomen area, Dr Shiedeler explained to me that i will notice the difference and that i have to wear my garment for at least 22 hrs/ day for the next 2 weeks, and that I should expect to be swollen in the 4th day. and that is exactly what happened. i am sore and a little bruised and also al ittle bit itchy in some areas as well. Yesterda was my first post op , the result was noticeable eventhough i am swelled, they told me that the soreness is normal . then we schedule my 2nd procedure 's date which will be on the 22nd of this month. the plan is to do hips, inner thighs and knees.
Dr Shiedler told me that i should expect anoth 9 liter between my hips, thighs and knees therefore , if we have to split the next procedure again then we will go for it and i agreed on that especially that i want the most fat to be extracted from my body. i will post photos later since i am at work now and will keep you posted.
