Going in tomorrow!!
Upper and Lower abdomens are done!!!
Now for the post op -- I had zero drainage, which made me happy, but ... OMG, It has been 6 days and I am STILL in pain -- sometimes shooting pain. I tried to go without any pain killers today, but around 3:00 I caved in. The pain is mostly on my sides and below my belly button. If I'm sitting, it's ok, but when I stand up, I have to stay hunched over and straighten up slowly. Sleeping at night is not too bad, other than when I want to turn to the other side, or get out of bed. Oh, and don't get me started on the damn garment you have to wear 24/7 for 2 weeks!!! Going to the bathroom takes forever to get all put back together.
Someone please tell me when this pain will go away, and if I look any different in the photos???
Going in July 9th for Hips/Thighs and Flanks
When I had my consult with Dr. Khalifeh, I felt comfortable.

I wanted to make sure I could get as much fat out that I possibly could! Dr. Khalifeh suggested 2 appointments under local. He also made some suggestions that I wouldn't have thought of, let alone known about.
