I decided it was time to do something about it and thought I may need a Mini Tummy tuck. The first office said I needed a full Tummy Tuck with only seeing pictures. The next office said "No Tummy Tuck" and that anyone that suggested that was just trying to get my money. He said I just needed Lipo, but he only did traditional lipo. So this lead me to SmartLipo.
I have researched it thoroughly and then found a doctor. It seems that this is my best bet with them skin tightening it can come with. I have done RF (Radio Frequency) to tighten my skin in the Ab area and it has tightened up the areas that do not have this fat pooch in them.
Today is Post-Op with pictures to be taken and meds to get. I'm nervous and excited!
I went in for my pre-op the other day. All went...

I do have drainage tubes. I know that most Smartlipo procedures don't have you do it and they give you pads to absorb it, but frankly, I'm glad to have them. Otherwise, the up keep on the drainage would suck. I also hope that this keeps me from having those pockets of liquid so many people talk about.
I have looked at my tummy and it is very flat. The belly button is a little weird looking, but I need to give it time. I am back to work today, but I have a desk job.
I'll post pictures after the tubes are out.
So day 3. I'm already starting to feel better with...

I'm still wearing the compression garment and take it off every 3 days to wash. So I have it off for 1.5hours, but I can't be wearing something gross. I wasn't told that I couldn't take it off, just to wear it all the time between showers and washing. It was recommended that I wear it for 3 weeks straight and then for at least 12 hours a day after for a couple of months.
Through the Pre-op to the Post-op the Dr. and his staff have been very pleaseant. I feel that he's been very honest with me about results and what I can expect. He talked to me throughout the procedure and was very nice. He even came in on his day off since it would be more convenient for me. He didn't do any pressure selling, telling me I should improve this or that. He just stuck to what I wanted and how we can get there.
