But lipo isn’t easy either! It hurt like hell and I was laid up for over a month recovering. Your stomach is your center and you don’t realize how much you rely on it for anything - moving, eating, breathing, etc. I was high on painkillers for the early part of my recovery but I still felt pain even through that. The compression garment that helps with the shape of your new tummy was so uncomfortable too; if it wasn’t so vitally important I would have ripped it right off. Luckily I had a few good friends come over and wait on me hand and foot, which made things easier.
Even a month later, it still sometimes hurts to pull myself out of a chair or bed but I am getting better every day and I went back to work last week. I am not ashamed of my lipo but I tend to keep it to myself anyway because it’s so misunderstood.
I don’t agree with using lipo to lose weight because you’ll gain it right back. There is never going to be a cure for laziness, just quick fixes. But lipo is great to help with problem areas. That’s what I did and I don’t regret it for one minute.
