Real Recovery Time - Elyria, OHOne week later

Hi, I am hoping for some real life time recovery for the Vase lipo procedure. I have already had a tummy tuck and have my flanks and some love handle area that needs some special attention. I do not like the fat hanging out on the backside when I wear my jeans. I weight 137 lbs and am 5"6" so there is not a lot to remove. I was only planning on taking off 4 days for recovery, is this being unrealistic? The Dr. seems to think that should be ok. I do not do anything really physical at work, other than walking a lot. Can all you patients out there let me know if you think this is accurate? With my tummy tuck I was misled and needed a lot more off. Thanks for all your help!

Had my surgery on the 29th, the procedure was pretty painless except around the rib cage. After the numbing wore off I am very sore. I have a lot of bruising. I have several compression garments because I had a tummy tuck. And from my experience the most comfortable ones are the ones thay zip in the front. My sides and hips are very sore. I am very tired, slept all day. I am a little concerned about being able to function at work on Monday. I wanted my love handles to be gone, I will post pictures when all the swelling goes down. I am still very uncomfortable.

It has now been 1 week. I am still pretty sore. The druises on the outside look better, but the inside is still so very tender and sore. I am still pretty swollen so it is very hard to tell if it was worth it. I am wearing my compression garment 24/7. My fingers are crossed that all this is worth it. I still take extra strenght tylenol every 4 hours. It does help with being uncomfortable.
