Here I am in all my glory. I cannot believe I am posting these pictures. Where did this belly come from? I just turned 60 and my hubby said go for it. I whine everyday and look in the mirror at my belly and back fat plus my inner thighs. I am concerned that my inner thighs might have some hanging skin after. But I had a face lift last year and I healed very well with excellent results.
Never having children I dont have hanging skin so was advised by the clinic that Lipo would work well.


Scheduled for surgery January 15 in Cancun Mexico.Will post more photos and my journey. Very exciting but makes me very nervous.
The pink bathing suit is my goal. To wear it again with pride.

I hope your feeling better than I am :) This is no joke as far as pain goes.

While I had more extensive surgery ( mini tummy tuck, breast reduction, & lypo) day 7 PO was my best day. The first few were pretty awful! Yes it gets better. But let's face it, you and I are not going to bounce back like the 28 year olds! But then we are not trying to recover and take care of pre schoolers as well either! Hang in there! We will get there! I intend to rock a 2 piece this summer myself dor the first time since college!

This is the first day 4 that I feel well enough to...

This is the first day 4 that I feel well enough to post. It has been a tough 3 days. OK my age probably has something to do with it.
Surgery was a breeze but I woke up shaking so bad from the anesthesia. They gave me the best meds. I slept overnight with sweet hubby on the couch. He is my everything. The hospital was wonderful and the nurses checked every hour all night with vitals and meds and the doctor saw me at 10PM.
The doctor marked my whole back right to my neck , whole abs and the inner thighs. Yikes.
Hubby took the markings photos also and so did the doctor. It was the first time I met him but he is a surgeon who works in the most expensive hospital in Cancun and is a very religious perfectionist with international clients. I lucked
out as my original surgeon was MIA for many reasons

Going home was tough. I had my inner thighs, whole back, full abs done So sitting up no way plus the Dr said no sitting as it will cause wrinkles. Maybe 15 minutes for 1 week. Walking and standing
Somehow I made it to the hotel and just laid. Not a lot of pain when laying. Standing up I needed a lot of help. The hotel knew I surgery so I disappeared real quick. .
Now we made it to Playa del Carmen for a hotel for 3 days. As my hubby was buying a SUV. So I laid and watched TV in a cool room. But I have a hard time with meds and they were making me so sick. I didn't know what to do. Then finally the next day I called my facilitator and they changed everything. So today I feel fine. What an ordeal!
I have many bruises all different colors and lots of swelling on my legs. I wrapped the right one cause it was so swollen. The Dr wants me wear the heavy duty snap compression garment for 1 week. He stitched closed all the opening and said because it leaves little scarring. But removed 4000CC..lots of fat
They use this great cotton bandage that wraps aall around so the snaps don't hurt at all and keeps everything smooth. Its wonderful.
I wait one week then go back for removal of stitches and then he said I don't have to wear anything else. But I have a stage 2 garment that I will wear as I know it just good.
Yes very stiff and sore but oh well I knew it would happen. Yesterday I wanted to die and thought why oh why did I do this and so emotional. Today so glad I did it...oh my..
Hang in there and think of that 2 piece bathing suit!! In a month you will be seeing a huge difference once swelling and bruising subsides. Tylenol helped me with pain more than the stuff the doc prescribed.

Wow a tough few days. Day 6 I actually walked around Chedraui in Tulum for about 30 minutes. Slow but walked. My legs are very swollen about twice the size. Feels like blocks. But sitting no pain or walking. Just stiffness and swelling. I can see the new shape and flatter stomach. Yeah
How u feeling believe? Ur on ur way....thinking of you....Happy healing hun!!!

I hope you're feeling better. These pain stories are scaring the heck outta me.

TF we all react differently to pain, I for one recoup really good. No pain that Tylenol couldn't handle. I had SL done upper and lower abs flanks and bra roll. I was given Meds to relax but I was totally out. I woke up in my bed. Don't remember anything. I had a bad experience with the antibiotic, ugh it was making me sick. But that was it. 17 weeks PO and waiting to see final result. I still have swelling ( I hope that's what it is) I still can touch the kangaroo pouch....

Oh week one at the doctor. Now we are in beautiful Cancun mexico. Paradise. The doctor is so professional. Gorgeous office in the Galenia Hospital, one of the finest. He takes his time, has a nurse and gorgeous office. He has to remove my stitches and brings out a big needle/syringe and says we have to take out some liquid on your right side. OK. The first one is a prick. Out come 20CC, The one a deeper prick. Put come 20 CC. Thats a lot. The third one I screamed...frig oh frig. But it was a small seroma and glad he did it.
Things will be sore, bruised, painful for 1 month. Need to wear my garment 24/7. He did my whole back and there was a weird lump of fat on my neck bone that removed. So my shoulders were bruised too.
We changed all my meds. As I get sick from lots then I quit taking them and in pain. My right foot and leg really swell up.
So off I go for my ultrasound massage. He recommended 10 but U can only fit in 2. Young sweet girl looked at my swollen, bruised, Va jay jay something from swollen outer space and did her job. Round small massage with ultra sound. Nothing hurt. She did my Va jay jay too...omg...left feeling so tired and spaced and sore. But when she was doing it ...nothing
Today actually feel a bit better and I want to walk...
With my checkup the doctor pressed on my right side and said we have to take out fluid. He then got the big big big needle and took out 2 syringes. OMG.. My swelling is only bad on my right leg and foot. The rest seems to be moderate. I also take Danzen a anti inflammatory here in mexico. It works well.

What is a seroma and how did you know you had it? My swelling is tremendous throughout my trunk. My back and but are even. Never seen anything like it :('

Oh it has been a struggle. Much harder than what I imagine. Sweet hubby has been at my beck and call. I owe him big time. Went for my 1 week check up. Great wonderful professional doctor in Cancun. He had to remove liquid with a big needle twice. He showed me the orange liquid. Had a small seroma on 1 side. I did scream once. Then had a ultra sound massage. He said this would help a lot. I can only have 2 then we have to leave . Had to change my pain meds for the third time. I get sick and stoned. Then I stop taking them. So will take each day as it comes. Need to walk more..gorgeous beaches of Tulum

Finally got home from wonderful Cancun and can post my 2 week update. The plane ride was not fun as my right leg and foot swells. I dont have a lot of swelling any where else. Lots of ripples and wrinkles but within time that will smooth out. I intend to wear my CG 24/7 for 1 month or more. I do take tylenol still as it just takes the edge off.
There is incredible results. I tried a few old clothes on like tight gym yoga jackets and wow no bulges at all.
According to the doctor...20 percent results first month, 50 percent the second month then 80 percent the third month. It can take up to a year to see the final results.
Since I had such a hard hard first week, this seems so much better. I am very stiff walking but it loosens up. I use a special cream from the spa I went to in Cancun and still taking arnica tablets for bruising and swelling.
Really look forward to the next few months and do self massage with Emu Oil which heals at the cellular level...
Thank god I made it. I was wondering what did I do to my body!!
Beauty at any age is worth it!!! I ask myself that question too and I'm 40. As long as we are still breathing it's worth every penny :) Take care and keep looking your best!

Wow things are changing already. Less soreness and almost all my bruises are gone. Still very stiff on the inner thighs. My right leg less swelling. But I have to wear my garment or else I start to hurt. But the biggest news. I tried on a summer top tha It couldn't get over my belly and my back fat looked gross. IT WAS LOOSE...OMG it looks great. Wow what changes
Went back to Weight Watchers today for their new program 360.I am a lifer but of course fell off the wagon.
I think at my age and the pain I went through my first week that this is the last kick at the can. Keep the fat off and enjoy the wonderful results
You look great, and speedy recovery !

My doctor said today that the first 2 weeks you definitely weigh more than pre-op weight and about the 3rd week you should be around the weight you were before. He said we should see the weight start dropping after 3rd week. He's been right on with me because I do weigh what I was pre-op. I need to definitely start eating completely healthy as my appetite has definitely picked up. Back to dieting for me :(. Your doing great if your down 7lbs already :) Have you started trying on new clothing yet? My back is still so swollen thats its almost even with my butt, so I still cant wear jeans. I can get them on, but its funny looking because they look like theyre on a tree trunk...lol.

not much swelling at all. The first 2 weeks my right leg and ankle swelled lots but gone now. I can see my knee again.
The pain keeps moving. Today my sides under my armpits are really sore. Yesterday it was my inner thighs. Ugh..I guess just make it a few more months. I took my garment off for bed as I felt like I was suffocating. Half way thru the night I had to put it back on as my whole body was aching. Patience patience....

On Friday it will be 1 month. It has been much harder than what I thought. I daily see small changes in pain and stiffness. But yesterday I drove with the big truck to the city (45 min) and walked around shopping and back. My back hurt a lot. Used the recliner with heat on and took advil. I sleep really good and can now sleep on my sides. No way before. My inner thighs still very tender and I get electric shocks all over. Tender all over.
On thursday getting my first LDL massage lymphatic. I have had them before and it is so gentle but really moves fluid and swelling. Its not on the muscle so it wont hurt the sides and back. I get kind of guilty going as they see really sick
people and here I am self indulged. What's that all about in my mind? Yes we do this to ourselves but its something that bugged me daily. Now I put a topon that was so tight and not its loose..That a good thing and a huge wakeup call for me to be healthy and not eat all that high fat chinese LOL that about?

Had my first LDL massage. Very nice. Soft and gentle. Will help the lymphatic get rid of the toxins. Have had a hard week. Things still ache. I am thinking I should just get on the elliptcal machine and give her. I am not a patient person and this lying around , going for small walks is driving me crazy. I want the garment gone. But when I put on my first stage garment I can sleep like a baby. So I know I still need it. Ugh

Before and after shots..wow huge changes in 1 month. I better quit whining.
They say it takes at least 3 months to feel better or swelling to come down. The last 2 days have been awful. I maybe flat but it sure burns like you said and stiff. I keep thinking it will get better. I am back on XS tylenol again. Do you MCMC still wear your garment 24/7?? I cant go without it...or I ache.. I am thinking your fold is swelling. Whatever garment I wear I get marks . Its so much harder lipo. I had a facelift a year ago and no pain..really..crazy So glad your lump is ok. That can be very scary. Have you talked with your surgeon about the lines?? I know they always say wait wait wait...ohhhh gawd...it hurts but I decided to do it . I only complain in here as my sweet hubby doesn't need it...

Believe, I know what you mean. I'm forgetting I'm still healing underneath because bruising is all gone. But every now and then I'll get sore or have a sudden throbbing in the area to remind me. I also have lines on my abs which is loose skin

Thank you so much for sharing your journey. You really look wonderful. I can totally relate to your early recovery experience. I was totally shocked at how difficult it was to address the lipo experience. I think you really are looking fabulous. Perhaps other readers/physicians can shed some light on my recovery. I am hoping for a good outcome to my two procedures - ab lipo and breast reduction. I had a breast reduction and ab liposuction on December 17th. At the two month point I am still waiting for further recovery. My breasts are healing well - the doc found a lump in one breast after already performing the reduction on the first breast. So - breast surgery was more involved and worrisome (great news though - all came back clear!). My physician recommended a particular massage therapist to work on my abdominal area to facilitate healing. I am really concerned regarding how my abs look and feel. I have had and still have a huge fold horizontally above my belly button and another below. I am swollen and I still have pain. The only way to describe it is like a fire burning from the inside out. My breasts look really good and I was so looking forward to putting on a bikini again. But, my abs look awful. The folds, swelling etc - I look "crooked" Does anyone have any advice or counsel???? Without a doubt from moment one the lipo experience has been awful . Two months down the road I am not looking any better and am very concerned. What should I be doing?

Every day is a new experience. Now it seems like all my nerves are stinging at the same time. I want to rip my garment off cause its like ants all over. Then I take a warm bath with oatmeal then rub Emu oil all over and it feels good but kind of hurts. Emu Oil heals at a cellular level and is amazing stuff. I know the animal thing but I know how good it is and it absorbs. Plus going in the truck and hitting bumps bugs me
I am asking all: what kind of exercise do you do and how often? Be honest...

So today is 6 weeks. Yes I am still very sore, swollen but the lumpy bumpy seems to be going a bit. I wear a garment , have 4 of them, all the time. I just switch depending on how hot or uncomfortable I am. Last night I was so itchy I was scratching everywhere on top of the garment. I have to use a pillow in the truck or my back hurts from the motion. It has not been an easy journey but I know in 6 months I will look back and think wow. I guess for my age my skin has stuck back pretty good but once I quite aching I will workout again. Its just too early as I dont want swell hell..
Sorry I havent been online lately but Ive missed watching your progress :) Your pictures of your results so far are amazing! I cant believe how flat your belly has gotten so quickly. I have been experiencing the same issues as you as far as the itchiness goes. OMG have I itched! I think everyone suspects I have bugs...lol. I bought 5 different garments but always come back to the one I hated from the beginning because it gives great compression. I will continue to wear it for atleast 3 months. I call it my cat suit :) BTW I really think you deserve a new bathing suit instead of your pink and black one that was your goal. Get something sexy!

Today in Playa Del Carmen I went for a massage recommended by my surgeon. We have come back for a week visit. What an amazing 2 hour massage. She did Lazer. Then she did kind of a bio feedback then she did full ultrasound. She has a mother, plastic surgeon doctor and a father doctor. She loves machines and did not want to be a doctor. She sold her car to get her first machine. Then her mother loaned her the money for 2nd machine then her doctor father bought her the expensive ultrasound machine. Lovely 32 year old in her house . Calm music and healing hands. She said she knows what the body needs and my skin will tighten up a lot more. She also manages a huge staff at a hotel expensive spa. She really knows her stuff. Going for another one on thursday. Will take photos when we get back to see the difference. Excited.
Very itchy and sore the last week...ugh again....
Omg!! U look great for 30 let alone 60! Thanks for sharing!

Hi I would love to know where you went in Playa del Carmen - I would love to have the same treatments. Thanks for your info!
Reply
I can send you her email and it does a bit for her to respond. Its quite easy to find her house where she does the treatments. I believe she is a healer and knows what to do for your body as she feels and moves the skin so she knows. I had a total of 3 treatments and each one was 2 hours crazy so cheap. When we go back again I will have some more. Do you spend time in Playa?? I am now 2 months post op and I am going to add photos this week. It is lumpy around my belly button. Still my skin is so sensitive. Some swelling and numbness so it can take 6 months or more for results. But the results are dramatic. He just didnt want me to sit a lot the first 2 weeks as it can cause wrinkles.

So today is 2 months post op. Sometimes we look in the mirror and think oh its not so great. But when you take photos and post them next to each other you see the progress. I am amazed. The lumpy bumpy is starting to leave.
Areas that are still sore...under my arms to my waist, back bra area, inner thighs and my sides. Each week it gets a little less but sure has been a lot of healing. My skin is still sensitive but last I slept without my garment and just my inner thighs kind of burned. Oh well I am 60 and I knew it would take longer. But my god...my belly is gone. I can wear a tight sweater and feel good..It is a miracle and what a great surgeon. I can hardly wait for the 6 month period as now I can start working out a bit. I have just been too sore and I did not want swell hell...it worked.
I did have 2 massage 1 week after surgery. After my stitches came out. I was so scared it would hurt. But it was ultra sound and a nice round warm massage with gel. Heaven. After I felt it more but not during and I took Tylenol before and after. Then 3 more 2hours massages 2 weeks ago. Laser and ultrasound. I think that is very important. I should have had 10 but couldnt stay in Mexico that long. So 5 but then the 2 hour ones were like double.

when did the itching start @ Believenow? I can't see a time when I won't want to wear my garment. It truly makes a difference. I'm washing mine now. I 'hang to dry' and I blow this little space heater on it so that it dries faster. I'm showering today (I shower and wash the garment now every other day). But I think I need a 2nd garment and not just spanx. And I think I need a bit of a smaller garment. I get my first massage tomorrow since surgery 10 days ago. I'm desperate for them to work out some of these knots. I know it's gonna hurt but I gotta do it! Eating really well - supplements supplements supplements - all my best ones I'm working in to my morning smoothies. With nerve repair, immune support, etc. I think supplements are super important. (But I always have believed this anyway....) Can you take benadryl for the itching?
Reply
Yes I hate to take any pills but I took Benadryl and slept. It puts me right to sleep. This am much better. Wearing a garment has helped so much. I have 3 of them. The stage one I cant wear. Its tight and digs into my stomach and I have creases. So my other 2 are not that tight but makes my skin feel good touching it. Like a light compression. I think when I get hot I itch and it doesnt go away. I had gone for a walk with 15 layers of clothes on, winter here and got home and had to rip all my clothes off and itch and itch.. The massages I had really helped

first workout in 2 months. Did a 1.5 hour weights and aerobics. Did it no problem. Thought it would kill me. Now real itchy again..It seem when I get hot then itchy. I will see how sore I am tomorrow. But I have been taking L-glut amine daily for lactic acid with the fat leaving. So will see. Still the Vajayjay is so sore and a hard rock on the bone. Hope it leaves one day...geez

Hi Believenow. YAY you went to the gym! I have my 2 week check up today (well, 13 days) and I'm hoping she releases me to go walk on the treadmill. I hope it helps! I'm sooooo stiff and sore when I sleep and wake up then when I start moving around I think "oh, this isn't so bad". If only I could sleep and walk and the same time? LOL! I must be lucky that the only side effect I haven't had 'yet' is ichy... Phew. Keep on keepin' on!

My vajayjay is so swollen! I'm only post op day 2. Can't wait for it to be normal again. Good to hear you worked out at two months! Have you been told to walk and move after lipo? My doc recommends three miles a day. I did not meet that mark today I got hot and then itchy too. My skin is so sensitive right now! Have you been using anything on your incision marks?

Today I took some measurement. 2.5 months . I was surprised. After lipo with all the swelling nothing. Now lost 8lbs. Waist before 35 inches now 32 inches.
Bra area as I had a lot of back fat. Before 39inches now 37 inches. This area is still numb and itchy and still swollen so I should lose more. Hips before 39inches now 37. Plus inner thighs 22 inches before now 19 inches. All areas still itchy and tender and swells later in the day. So patience and things will quit being sore one day...but great results now.
I do have some darker marks around my belly button and kind of waves so I hope that goes away at some point. I know it the marks from the cannula.
I'm happy this lipo has changed you so dramatically and for the good!! Do you feel all the weight loss has been because of the lipo? btw, are you back from mexico yet? I had these bandaids called elastoplast on my legs (I kind of regret not taking pics) and I took them off 10 days after and I have maks on my legs (skin irritation) hope your itching got better!

Lipo is lipo. Major surgery. When you have larger amounts removed its a longer recovery. Arnica is at the health food store in tablets and gel. Take it a few days before then I took it for 2 months.Helps a lot with bruising and swelling. Today I was 10lbs down..wow...amazing. So its a slower process but I know once all the itching stops and tenderness it will be better. But is so worth it now.

My surgery is scheduled for April 25 lipo and breast augmentation. Any great advice for lipo recovery? I'm a repeat offender w/ the breast augmentation so I understand the recovery for that I'm just worried about the pain of both. What would u have done differently to prepare if u could? What should I already have purchased? What's arnica? I go for my pre- op appointment on Friday (April 5th). Thanks!!

well 3months post op. I just saw my doctor in cancun as it looked like I had a swelling on my right abs. He was very concerned which is great. He doesnt work on Sat but saw me at the clinic. He was so relieved to say the surgery went well. No growth, no cancer, no complications at all. Bad news is!
My ab mucles are loose. So with only 1cm of fat left I see them more.Ugh
To fix is a TT and I will not have it. So loose muscles with no fat. He said I look great wow. But I am not flat. Will take photos when I get home.
He said at my age 60 recovery is much longer 3-4 months
before results. Can take 8months for my vajayjay to not be hard anymore...
At 55 and four months post ab lipo, I am still mishapen and swollen. I am trying not to lose faith that all will be better, that I have to give it six months. Not enough has improved as far as the folded/crooked look to make me completely believe it will go away. I certainly have lost fat and am smaller (no muffin hangover) though pants do not fit any different, I do see that in a blouse or sweater I am looking better (without clothes is another story). I also had a breast reduction at the same time as the lipo. Without a doubt the surgery has been an easier and better recovery than the lipo - by far. I even had a lump discovered in the second breast (after the first breast had undergone reduction) and had to have surgery redone on the first breast and it still was an easier, more comfortable, better resulting procedure. If my abdomen doesn't improve satisfactorily, I would certainly consider a TT as my experience with surgery was quite positive. I had never had any cutting before (or lipo) but my experience speaks for what I would do next time. Really, if I could have afforded a TT and had also known how significant the recovery would be from lipo I would have done it then. Just my two cents - best wishes and continued good results. You do look wonderful!

yeah a lot of my itching has gone. Still some numb areas but the most amazing parts is under my arms and sides and back. My inner thighs has loose skin now but it kind of folds between my legs so you dont see it...ha ha ha. It seems I only have 1cm of fat left according to my doctor. He is such a nice person. My appt in Cancun , he was so concerned with the results or complications. When he saw none he told me how he felt. He was truly concerned as I am over age 60 and he knew it would be harder for me. Now that the swelling is mostly gone and that dam itching nearly drove me crazy.
he said to massage the hard area above my Vajaja could take 8 months to leave. I am just so glad things are improving so great...but it takes time!!
I will post new photos soon.
Yes back from mexico and guess what. My itching has stopped even in the heat and sensitivity has decreased to about 90 percent. Still numb on my sides and parts of my stomach. I had such a hard recovery that I am just going to work out my abs. I couldnt ask for more over age 60. It was funny because at my appt this week the doctor kind of rolled his eyes and said there are many things to think about with a TT. One is mental as it is about a 4 month recovery. Do I really need it and after age 40 it is a longer recovery. So I rolled my eyes and said no I never want anymore surgery. MC I still have some swelling but yes if you are having lipo do the TT at the same time. I sure dont want to go through all this again. I am very happy with my results and he did a lot of lipo under my arms and and sides and back. That is really good and no more bra fat. I can actually feel my ribs. It is more inches lost than weight for sure. I dont think I will ever wear a bikini again as there are dark and light spots around my Belly button and some waves. Who knows that may go a

So I have some wrinkles on my stomach? Wonder if they will go away?? Its only been 3 months...
well back to my first workout with my trainer. We did 21 sets whole body. It wasnt that hard but 2 days later my left lower back swelled a big lump. So even 3.5 months it sure takes time to heal. I really cant believe I am actually working out as it was such a tough journey.

Things have really settled out. I plan this weekend to buy a bikini just to tan in alone. I do have some wripples and unevenness. I will take photos of that.
My sides under my arm pits are still kind of numb and sensitive. He took the fat out right to my breasts. I can actually feel my ribs.
The big thing is I started training again 2x a week with my trainer and she said I am so strong. Ab work I can silly amounts. I know things can still change 6-12 months.
I was worried about all the loose skin on my inner thighs but it is kind of hidden and my thighs dont rub anymore...
Now I can say its amazing but was a slow process
congratulations you look amazing!!

Things are really great. All the roping I had and all the unevenness is gone. Actually my stomach is not so wavey. When I get a nice 2 piece I will post photos. I have to say over and over it was so worth it. It was really hard for me the first few months but I work out with my trainer and I am so much stronger and can do lots of weights. The funny thing is my abs are so strong. I guess with all the fat gone they can work the way they should.
wow, its been 9 months. Things really settled out and still wonderful results.I traine once a week with my trainer and she said I am crazy strong and my abs and core are amazing. Its like once I got rid the fat the muscles took over. I am still the same weight as after surgery and just sit there. It doesnt move. I had a face lift the year before so I dont want to lose weight as it would come off my face. All is wonderful and still very glad I did it. I will post bathing suit photos soon.

Things have really settled. It has been 9 months and no lumps or bumps. It just all takes time. I work out with my trainer and she confirms I am so much stronger after lipo. Maybe all that fat gone my muscles work harder. Yes perhaps I should have had a TT too but so what. I am not flat flat but no big buddha belly anymore. I will post photos soon.
Hello there:) Im thinking about going to Mexico in June for lipo and fat transfer. Could you please tell me who your Doctor was?
