So far today I feel great - tummy tuck - Edmonton, AB

I had smartlipo done yesterday, so far today I feel great. Not very sore although have not taken the garments off yet. My doctor was very gentle through the whole procedure although it was only roughly a half an hour.

He removed a total of 700cc which he didnt talk to me about so I am nervous that maybe it wasnt enough. I have been watching so many youtube videos where the doctors are takin more along the lines of 1500 to 2500 so it makes me wonder...... I will post pictures soon.

So I went to work Sunday I was having great progress, I was getting shape. I dont think I have ever seen myself that small.... So I figured I would go to work. I dont do alot there walking mainly but it's a 12 hour shift. well holy swollen. The garment is making one side more curvy I think, because the one side dips in all the time the other side is straight, but here is a couple new pics.

Is there anything you can take to help with the swelling? It feels like this garment is just getting tighter and tighter....

So I am on day 5 and feeling discouraged. I am more swollen then I was on day 2... I think that is normal. I dont have any pain but just a little bit of tenderness. I am not sure what to do about my garment, the zipper on the right side is constantly poking inwards so I am not sure if that has anything to do with why I am so curvy and the other side is just straight. I have probably read every review on here and seen all the pics but it seems like everyone is smaller then the before pics and I am the same size or bigger... all in good time I guess.

I was advised today that I no longer need my garments... That doesn't seem right does it???

Today is one week.... I am so swollen it's crazy....

Today is one week.... I am so swollen it's crazy. I was advised not to wear garments anymore but have continued to wear them. There is no point in the day that the swelling gets better or worse it is just constantly bad all the time. I am not sure that this is normal and don't have a check up app. until the 20th of september. Is there any way at all to help with the swelling? Although I don't have any pain what so ever, it's hard trying to constantly hide what looks like a 6 month pregnant belly. :( so sad right now.

Day 9.... No change, I am roughly the same size as when I started. very disappointed :( not exactly sure what to think I am healing nicely and the itching is starting to go away. New pics although they look the same as the last ones.

It is day 12 today, I am still the same, I spent alot of time walking on sunday there fore swelled alot. I seemed to get bigger with every step. I have not changed at all. Everything remains the same. I look exactly like my before pictures which is disappointing, but I did have a feeling my doc didnt take enough out and I must have been right. I dont see him until the 20th of september and we can go from there. :(

3 weeks today... No change I am roughly 1 inch...

3 weeks today... No change I am roughly 1 inch larger than the day I went in. I havent changed any habits because I was on track with healthy eating long before the procedure. I am disappointed with the whole process right now. My skin still hurts alot so I cant wear any tight cloths and with being bigger than before they are all tight, so thats sucky... Just spending my time venting lol hoping it will make me feel better.

So I am no longer waiting for results as now I am...

so I am no longer waiting for results as now I am being asked when's the big day... I feel like crap. And I feel like I look like crap. My poor hubby is taking the brunt of it. I called my doc's office because my swelling is almost unbearable, but nothing till I see him on the 20th. it is 2 days short of 4 weeks and is there even a point for me waiting to see swelling go down because there hasn't been a change in the healing process

So I went for my one month check up. The Doc is...

So I went for my one month check up. The Doc is not very happy with my results, but figures I have done something to slow down the progress. They took 3 sets of after pics, I guess trying to find the best ones and unfortunately they all look the same as the befores. (except my back) I feel that I have just wasted my money which is sad because it's not just a little chunk of change laying around. It was five weeks yesterday, can I still be swollen because to be honest with you I cant tell the difference anymore. My tummy is very jiggly, I have been working my butt off at the gym, and It hurts by the time I'm finished. It kinda bothers me to go to the gym because I don't want him to think it was him that did an amazing job when it is me doing all the hard work and spending all my money on well nothing. I would have been fine with the cost and the pain if I had gotten any results.

soooooo i must say I woke up Yesterday and I was skinny... Well skinnier, big change the swelling just disappeared, I am not sure why or how. Maybe the gym I dont know but liking it. :)

So I went for my two month check up. I am very happy to say that my doctor is as unhappy with my results as I am, so redo.... Hopefully the second time is a charm. My back side looks good, smaller but no change in my stomach. I go back on November 30 to redo the front.

I had my redo done one week ago today, and wow...

I had my redo done one week ago today, and wow what a difference, it is nothing like the first time. I am not sore at all and didn't have to take anything for pain. I don't have much swelling at all which is awesome. I will post new pictures soon.

After having the smart lipo twice with no results,...

After having the smart lipo twice with no results, I have decided to have a tummy tuck. I found the lipo did not give really any results what so ever. It was disappointing, so after a lot of thought this is my decision. I am having it done on the 16th and I am so excited and nervous. I have been having a lot of nightmares lol on just having the surgery. My PS said he is almost positive he will be able to remove the whole tattoo so that in itself is worth every penny I will pay!!! I am having it done in Puerto Vallarta with dr. Alejandro Enriques. I will be having a full tummy tuck with lipo on the back and thighs. I will not add any pre op pics because I haven't changed a bit since the last time I was on here so I am using those ones. Anyways just 6 more days, wish me luck!!! :)
