Getting Tumescent Liposculpture, Nervous :-\ - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have always struggled with my weight and I have...

I have always struggled with my weight and I have trouble loosing it. Thanks to my genetics I accumulate weight in the pelvis region and that is so hard to get rid of, I have been able to loose weight before and my stomach has gone down a lot but that area stays the same, I have gone from 170-145. That nasty fat there takes a toll on my self-esteem. I can't wear jeans that fit my waist because I look like I have a pouch down there. I wear long shirts that cover that area so its not so noticeable. I cant wear a thong or nice panties because I look ridiculous in them and forget about shorts. I'm 20 years old now but when i was 16-17 I did not have this issue and at that time I weighed 145 lbs, I was always chunky but my whole body went together, I was happy with the way I was. I was a 36D and had what you call a booty. The weight gain started when I started going out with my boyfriend to dinner, movies and anywhere there was food. If he ate I ate, I should have known better than to join him in this activity but I love food and cooking! His metabolism does not know what fat it is! He has none! I wish I was like him, eat and eat and eat at whatever time and whatever I wanted and not gain a pound. I gained 25 lbs before I knew it. When I lost 20 lbs of those I felt healthier and more energetic but my clothes didn't look so good. I had loose skin and that horrific pouch I was left with. I was able to maintain a weight of 150 lbs for a year but again food and my love for it.

So now I'm 160 lbs and wanting to do something drastic about it, I want to feel good about myself again. I want to look good in close again according to my standards. I want to do this for me, for my pleasure. I am my biggest critic and I am also the only one who can do something about it. So,I requested a consultation at Body Care for Smart Lipo through their website on Friday after the office was closed and they called me on Saturday and I scheduled an appointment to come in on the following Tuesday. I went in for my appointment and was greeted by the sweetest voice I've heard, the office seemed very calm and elegant, everything was beautiful and clean. I then filled out some paperwork and was seen 5 minutes later. I really didn't have to wait around pondering what was taking them so long like at other doctors offices. I then met with the consultant and told her what I wanted done, she did not try to sell me anything that I didn't want done(which I liked). I knew what I wanted done and she seemed excited for me which was kinda weird but it got me excited about the procedure as well.

I had been wanting this for about a year now and the only thing stopping me was the money. I got a job the day before my appointment which told me this was meant to be! So I'm financing the procedure to get it done. I then met with the doctor and explained to him what i wanted done and that was it. I'm getting my upper and lower abdomen, my flanks and my dreaded pelvic region done. The doctor is going to sculpt my figure to what I once looked like or maybe something better. I asked the doctor basic questions about the pain, how long does the procedure take, scarring, and other things I don't remember. I will post pictures up soon! I'm nervous about the procedure =( but I'm excited at the same time. It's so worth my happiness!
