Lipo Abdomen, Upper Back & Flanks - Guayaquil, Ecuador

I had BA and Lipo done at the same time 23 days...

I had BA and Lipo done at the same time 23 days ago. I am recovering well from my BA surgery, however I am not feeling so well in the areas I had lipo. From the onset the pain in the areas treated has been extensive to say the lease. The lyphmatic drainage massages where excruciating and the compression garment is uncomfortable. Now, I have burning, tearing sensation in my back and flank areas. When I stretch to the sides it feels like something is tearing inside. My abdomen, is very tender to the touch. I am in a Mirena Compression Garment now. Not sure if it's enough compression and maybe that could be it. I had my surgery in Ecuador with a very well known PS who has also operated on a friend of mine and several people in her family all successfully. The therapist who performs the endomology treatments on me thinks the doc may have remove too much fat from these areas. You can count my ribs...so this is possible. I am afraid of what the complication sculd be from this and I am not sure if a PS here in the US will see me and what the cost will be. Obviously, cost was a major factor for me.

Everything you're feeling as for the lipo areas are normal. Lipo takes 4 to 6 months for you to see the final result. Just be patient and you'll see how much your body will change as weeks go by.

O my god. la dra franco. mira mi prima se opero con ella y fue una muy mala experiencia .
Tubo que consultar muchos cirujanos para que le arreglaran again. pero eso fue hace 10 anios atras.

Hola Laura,

Gracias por tu comentario y buenos deseos. Te cuento que sobre todas las cosas los mas importante para mi cuando decidí operarme era escoger u buen doctor. Mi cirujana ya había operado a mi amiga y varias personas en su familia. Lo que pague fue muy razonable por el trabajo que ella me hizo. Estoy súper contenta con los resultados. Li que me apena mas es la recuperación. No creo que lo volvería hacer solo por que la recuperación para mi habido difícil. Mas que todo por mi personalidad no por nada que la doctora haya o no haya echo. Mi doctora es María Zuniga Franco. Si Guy te mando sus datos por correo. Suerte.

Yes, one breast is still smaller than the other but that is because she does not like to take the risk of putting in different size implants. However now that they are larger it is not as noticeable. The lipo she did a great job with, however the post-op is torture. I can email you her information if you are interested.
