Smart Lipo Triplex Upper, Lower and Flanks. -Great Neck, NY

Hey Everyone Lemme start with I'm 32 yrs. old with...

Hey Everyone Lemme start with I'm 32 yrs. old with 2 wonderful boys 7 and 5. I'm pretty small from what ppl say, I'm 5'2 and weight 125lbs. After having my boys back to back cause my Lil one is about to be 6, I have gotten a belly. All my friends think I'm trippin but if I'm not comfortable in a tee shirt and I'm very self-con about my body. I don't buy the clothes I wanna buy cause I'm NOT one of them girls that will rock something and look stupid or look like I shouldn't be wearing it. I've wanted this for years and finally just did some homework and booked my Lipo. How it all Started I googled a lot of places and Dr's and I cam across Dr.Marciano in Great Neck I went in sometime in Jan of 2013, Mind u I go and the Dr is cold and stag8 to the point kinda like Blah Blah its $6500 yea hurry up and get out. OK so I had time to think about it and I thought Damn she's a bitch cause she didn't even make me wanna come and give her 6 THOUSAND 5 HUNDRED Dollars in one freakin day. So I went on to my groupon and saw that she had a deal. I called and the girl on the phone was sweet and we made an appt. for me to come in Feb 7th.. So I go and let her know I was their last month and she was nicer and showed me before and after pics, looked at my problem areas and gave me my appt. which I wanted asap. I put $500. down to hold my date March 13th. So my Big day comes and I can't wait. My Appt. was for 10am so one of the girls called me the day before to tell me my appt. is at 12:30pm and it wasn't cause I have the paper that I signed it said 9:45am but I didn't wanna fight or get crazy so I was cool with it. She asked me if I started taking my Keflex (which u start to day before ur big day)I said yes and Oh and u have to get blood work done the week before ur big day as well. I did a lot of reading and got my Arnica pills (which she sells their if u can't find it) and I got Bromelain 500 mg (From Pineapple providing 1,000 GDU) it helps with the swelling and I got some sliced pineapples on deck. So I get their at 12pm and waited till one of the girls came out. I used the bathroom then talked to Dr.M I paid $2000. and Split the $1700 into 2 payments for April and May on my C.C. So they tell Me to Change into my paper clothes. Lol. The assistant gives me 2pills one for pain and one to stay clam. We were talking shyt while getting everything ready. Boom Dr.M comes in and she was awesome. She was telling me everything she was doing step by step. That was nice. I have Pics and Videos threw the whole thing. When we were getting close to finish, that shyt was burning around my belly button, which is the worst part and hurts. I sucked it up and took the pain. She stood me up to see if it was even and I laded back down she did a lil torking and she was done (thank god) I was super sore. The assistant patched me up and put me in my body suit. I felt super sick and I got really pail and had to sit down. Drank some gatorade and ate some pretzel sticks and felt better. They told me to keep my suit on 24hrs then shower wash it and put it back on. So I got home and I was hurt. I had one of my friends drop me some pain pills. They were gonna give me Vic's but I can't take those I'm allergic. (crazy right) so I was draining all night. I couldn't really sleep. I couldn't wait to take a shower I was full of blood and fluids but had to wait till 6pm. So one of the girls from the office called me and checked to see how I was feeling. That was nice. Finally 6 came and I had the hubby help me. I showered and felt a lil better. Boy I like what I see already. I laded down and waited for my garment to be cleaned. I was very uncomfortable the 1st 3nights. Tomorrow makes a week, Im still hurt but I can move around and do small things around the house. I started taking water pills today cause I'm still bloated. The Mornings suckkk its hard to move around I guess cause I've been laying on my back all night and not being able to move around sucks. They tell u to wear Ur suit 12hrs on 12hrs off. I like have it on even tho it hurts I feel tight and nothing is moving when I wear it. Omg I went to drop my kids off to school and every lil bump u feel and hurts like hell if u don't have Ur suit (garment) on. Over all I'm glad I did it cause I just wanna be happy in my Skin. Hope this helped out. :) Will post updates after my appt. next week.

Hey everyone yesterday made a week that i did my...

Hey everyone yesterday made a week that i did my triplex and now I'm a lil worried. the swelling is still there. Ive been taking the water pills and nothing. My bra line is flat but my belly is bloated and hard. When i touch my skin around my belly and flanks its hottt like hotter then the rest of my body. I don't like the way i feel i look like I'm prego and trust I'm not I've had my IDU for 5 yrs (i have the 10 yr one) and hasn't done me wrong. My belly button is bothering me, when my shirt touches it, its a weird feeling. I wear my suit all the time last night i didn't sleep with it on. Did this happen to anyone else? I'm going into the office tomorrow like >wtf?...!

So the girls called me from the office this...

So the girls called me from the office this morning cause I called last night. they told me the Dr was on Va-k which I knew cause we were talking about it in the office. Anyway I told her my symptoms and she was telling me back what I wasn't saying but I was going threw. I told her I don't care I still wanna come in so she can see what I'm talking about and she was sweet and said that's fine. I got there in 20mins.lol walked in and gave her a sad face she brought me into the room and I took off my suit she looked and touched and told me its normal to be swollen. I told her about my hot skin and she said that, that happens and that its only been a week. she asked if Ive had fever i said no, did i throw up? no. O and she told me to massage it myself when I'm just sitting doing nothing. When the Dr gets back she is gonna prob write up a script for water pills (which r stronger then the shelf ones) and gave me a number to a lymphatic massage person. She asked if my incisions r closed I said yes she said so I can start the Lym massages..( O what pain) I haven't taken pain pills (Advil) today to see if I will get a fever and I have been good all day. So I guess only time will tell. O and she said that Vela shape in 2months is gonna help 2. UMMMM 2months, I better not even have this shyt in 2 months. Not for nothing I do see the Top part that's flat getting lower, kinda like the swelling in moving down. I cant explain.
Since the Dr wasn't in I called my girlfriend in PR cause she did Tummy Tuck & Lipo and she said u will swell ur 1st week, that I should give it another week but to start the Lym massages and she said they HURT LIKE HELL. I wasn't done there lmao I went and spoke to my friend the pharmacists and he said its happens to give it a few weeks. OKKKK uggg Y did i think i was gonna be instantly skinny and fly..lol
Well hope everyone has a nice weekend. I will write if things change. :)

Hey Guys, Just wanna give u a lil update and a...

Hey Guys,
Just wanna give u a lil update and a TIP. I didn't take any pain meds yesterday or today to see if I would get a fever and I didn't. Ok so the swelling is still their but it's not hot anymore and I don't feel like Im gonna blow up. lol My belly is still very hard and I have a lil lump over my belly button but Im not scared yet. I've been rubbing it all day. Not for nothing the Lipo has me sitting up strg8 all day, which is a good thing. I took some more pics to keep up the update.

Now TIP...
So my suit (garment) hurts me on the sides cause it pinches my sides and it's denting my sides making marks and dents. (pics will show what I mean) Guys u will love me after this info. So I said to myself lemme try maxi pads to make it a lil plush and I did.. OMGG ur not gonna wanna take ur suit off cause u will be comfortable, tonight i will sleep with it on just cause. Lemme know if it works for anyone else. Today I had a good day.

Happy Sunday Everyone, Tomorrow I'm going for a...

Happy Sunday Everyone,
Tomorrow I'm going for a massage I'm nervous just cause I know its gonna hurt. :( But I cant wait at the same time cause I feel I need it. I'm so hard and tight and don't wanna stay that way. This is what I'm going for:

Chandra Herbal Therapy for Post Liposuction :
A 1-hr detoxification session to enhance your recovery period. Our herbal oil massage stimulates lymphatic drainage, greatly lowering the risk of infection, and improve circulation, preventing build up of scar tissue. A hot compress massage follows, relaxing tight muscles due to trauma. We conclude with Chandra herbal tummy wrap to reduce swelling and bruising. (60 minutes)

If any one wants info just hit me up.. I will post how it went..

Hi guys, Ok so last night I slept without my suit...

Hi guys,
Ok so last night I slept without my suit and was ok. I got to sleep on my side for the 1st time since SmartLipo it hurt but I did it anyway. My appt. for my Lymphatic massage was today @ 10am I was scared. I got their at 9:45am and the place was soooo peaceful which took some of my fear away. Suzzane was soooo sweet she saw that I was nervous. She asked me a few questions and told me what to expect. When I took my clothes off she looked and touched my belly and told me I don't look bad at all. (I wish I thought the same) I was hard but she will fix that. I posted before what massage I was going for.

Guys I'm not gonna lie, it hurt but like a good hurt. All I was thinking was if I don't do this I'm not gonna heal right. So I sucked it up and took the pain, we were talking the whole time so time flew. Since I didn't wear my suit Suzzane put a herbs mix on my belly and wrapped me up tight...
I love it. She told me to sleep with it on and shower tomorrow. I feel so good. I paid' for 3 Lymphatic massages today so thats one thing I don't have to worry about plus I got 10% off for buying a package. Posted New Pics from today..
If any one is doing Lipo in NY u really should go to Suzzane @ Chandra in flushing she was soo sweet and knew what she was doing.. I can't wait to go next week

Hey guys just want to fill you in on what's been going on lately.. On Wednesday made 2 weeks and I went to go see the doctor. It was cool she said I was healing nicely and to keep going to get my massages and she'll see me in 2 more weeks. so I couldn't wait to go. Thursday came and I went to go do my massage it didn't hurt as much as the first time but it still hurt. She did the same thing she did the first time with the herbs and wrap me up tight. . And she gave me some extra herbs and oils 2 wrap myself of the following day. I will pull some new pictures so you guys can see the progres. The massages should be consistent at the beginning so your skin doesn't stay hard.

Hey Guys just wanna update u on whats going on. Ok...

Hey Guys just wanna update u on whats going on. Ok today makes 3 weeks. I went for my last massage Mon but I got 3 more cause Im still hard and to be honest I feel like there working for me. If it wasn't for Suzzane rubbing me down and wrapping me up I think I would have still been bloated. My belly is flat but I do have stretch marks and once Im done healing I will work on getting rid of them.
I still wake up in pain but not pain like omg it hurts its sore pain I guess from healing. I massage myself every night after my shower for about 10mins it hurts cause Im rubbing deep but I do it anyway. I likeee a lottt the way I look cause I feel confederate in my clothes but till I get rid of the stretch marks I wont LOVEE the way I look.. I actually got myself a mini dress for the
Alicia Keys concert on Fri I can't wait to wear it.Posting some new Pics so U guys see whats going on..

Hola everyone,
I went to see Suzzane today and she is loving what she see's. She's leaving on Va-k for a week :( she needs to rest those hard working hands. lol. So thats y I went to go see here and Im going to the Alicia Keys concert tomorrow and didn't wanna look like i couldn't breath. lmao Im still a bit hard but I knowwww thats gonna take time but Im healing nicely from what I see and what Suzzane is telling me. I see Dr.M next week lets see what she saids.

Hey Guys,
Hope everyone is heeling well and all others doing their research. On Weds 4/10 makes 4 weeks post Op. I'm feeling good. Suzzane has been away all week. I have been massaging myself and keeping myself wrapped. I'm feeling good and looking good. I have been wearing things I would never wear not cause I couldn't cause I didn't like the way I look.
I have a lot of my friends asking what I have been doing. I wanna just laugh but I say I have been working out and eating right. LOL I'm posting some new pics to keep u guys up to date.

I'm so mad I updated last night and it erased...

I'm so mad I updated last night and it erased everything I wrote. So I'm gonna keep it short and simple. I went to see Suzzane Mon, I couldn't wait I missed them. I was very jealous of there tans.
On Weds I made 5 weeks post and had my follow up with Dr.M She said I look great and I could do my 1st VelaShape today (it didn't hurt like I thought), I had time so I did it and booked my next vela appt. for next weds.
Here r some update pics, I'm a bit bloated in the (kiss my undies pic) cause I'm about to get my period next week.
Gonna go see Suzzane today 4/19 can't wait at 11am..
Tip Time:
If u did ur surgery or your about to do PLEASE get stool softer..! If u don't, u will be praying to God cause it's really gonna hurt when u do poo.
I should have wrote this before but I just remember.
Have a Great Weekend everyone

Update

Hey guys hope all has been well and everyone is doing what they gotta do to be happy.. I haven't updated in a min sorry. But anyway here we go. I'm healing well I have Afew lil lumps but nothing that I'm to worried about, I told the girls in the office about it and they said give it time which I will before I freak out, lol. I became 13 weeks on weds and only time will tell how I'm gonna look in sept when I go for my 6 month appt with Dr.M. I don't get massages cause I did 7 and I don't feel I need them but I don't miss my Suazzane. :( posted some pics so u guys can see the update. I just took these pics on weds so there 13 weeks pics..

Update 14weeks

Okay so I feel tight at times and I'm still healing I love what I see and that's all that matters I have a few lumps,
But I will not worried till my six-month mark and September then I will have to take it up with Dr. M to see what will happen from then on other than that I'm happy in my clothes. I'm happy as a person and that's all that really matters I went to see my girl Suzzane on Monday Cause I'm bloated from my period. she brought that crap down I wish I had the money to see her at least twice a month because I feel like she really helped me at least.
I hit 14 weeks on Wednesday that just passed I'm super excited like I said I like what I C and that's all that matters I don't care about the stretch marks and I'm not so crazy about the lumps I'm just going to chill out and keep calm till September. Hope everyone is doing their homework and healing well and taking care of themselves hope everyone has a great weekend...

It's been a minute

It's been quite sometime since the last time I was on the site.. These are pictures that I took the day I'm going to have to get a touch up. I went to see Dr.M in September and she said I looked great but there was this bump that was really bothering me so I came in a few months after she said we can do a touch up. Now I'm starting to notice that I have fat by my bar line on the sides and I want to get that ticket away as well.. I wanted to the touch up in March so hopefully she's available.. Over all I'm happy in my clothes I think I will be happier once I get touched up.. Take care..
