REVISION DONE 8/15/13 ON ABS AND DOING BACK FLANKS (BRA BULGE)~

I am going back in for Vaser Liposuction in late August.

To read part 1 of my Vaser Liposuction journey, please click here.

I am going back in for Vaser Liposuction in late August. I had my procedure done last Sept 2012 for my upper and lower abs and flanks. Tremendous difference but here I am almost 9 months later and still not happy with Abs...doc will redo Abs at no cost to me.

Love my flanks and my stomach went down considerably from where I started last Sept. I just want to wear a fitted shirt with no "over-flow" which I still am not comfortable doing...you can see my first review under muffin-LESS under Vaser on this sight.

I take lots of pic's too. I hoping to get a flatter tummy and a smoother back. He will be charging me $2500 for my back and Im good with that..I will post a photo of what I look like now. I have been working out and totally changed my diet with Shakeology and working out to Shawn T.

WORKING OUT 6 days a week

I have been working out 6 days a week to Shaun T DVD's...and drinking Shakeolgy and trying to eat real clean...creating a new life style...hoping the 2nd time he goes in...in August....the fat will be easily accessible....lol...If you read my previous blog and see my pic's....belly came down a lot....but still not happy with it....so back I go...doc wanted to wait closer to a year since healing takes that long with nerves, etc...so hoping for a better result...I will DEF post a pick soon of where I am today...its my upper abs from belly button up that still protrude some...not happy with that...BUT if that fat is under my organs there is nothing you can do about that...just lots of cardio and work it off your self....WE SHALL SEE....I hope you are all doing well......Sharon

So here I am 10 days post op and still swollen and tender..someday are better than others. Tummy doing down a bit..back still swollen...hate this stage...it really takes a good few months till you really start looking better...this is not my first time around. I hoping healing is quicker where there was a lot less fat than first time around. (SEE MY FIRST POST FROM FIRST PROCEDURE) DEF up and about right away with this procedure..really no down time. Now I wait and I have been massaging and taking Arnica and rubbing Arnica gel on my tummy to help with swelling. HOpe u are all well...until next time....take care

Some photos. Love my back

No more back boobs. Lol. Love it. I have these pics from doc. Not of tummy revision yet. I love it so far

3 Wks. 2 days post op

Seeing my tummy going down but absolutely still swollen. This is it for me. No more Vaser. Starting up my T25 with Shaun T will have to help firm up. I'm 47. With 3 kids. I feel better than I have in years. So I will accept myself from here on out. Will post pics again in a few wks. But here's my Tummy to date.

4 wks post op revision

Starting to like what I see.

Getting better. Still not where I want to be. But I'm working out 6 days a week. Abs on lower right side still protrudes more than left. I have come along way since 1st procedure a year ago. Glad I did it.

Coming up on 8 wks

I go see my surgeon on Thursday for 8 wks check up. Curious to c what he has to say about my abs. Def flatter but irregular looking.

Coming alone nicely this time around

Coming along. Been doing T25 with Shaun T. Lost 10 odd.

Boston Plastic Surgeon

He is actually out of Southboro, MA...my first surgery was in Dedham because he was covering for another dr...I lucked out and got him since no one told me other doctor was gone for a few month. Great doc who wants his patients HAPPY...he is a Plastic Surgeon. He has been nothing but great to me...Did my tummy revision at no charge to me. Really cares about his patients..he listens and does not rush you out. TOTALLY AWESOME DOCTOR!! Wouldn't hesitate to go back to him for anything!!
