I am 42, 5'5' and 135#. I have never had a flat tummy and have weighed up to 180#. I have lost weight and maintained it for the last 2 years. I workout, eat heathy and I just can not get rid of this belly! I am schedualed to have lipo on my flanks tomorrow and then abs on friday. I am really excited and really scared. I just hope this gives me the results Im looking for. I would love any advice that may improve my results or a speedy recovery. The doctor is going to put in drains and I have never heard of this. I guesse we will see if it is better. These are my before pics I took last night.

March 6th. Today I got my flanks done today. It went really smoothly. I did throw up the vicodin. The pain is pretty mild. I had a valium, vicodin. As of right now on day 1 Im pleased Im not in to much pain. Im going to take a shower tonight and I will post pictures then. Friday I go to get my abs done and Im worried because I cant take pain killers.

Today is a bit worse. It is very hard to get into a comfortable position and I am still draining and leaking. I have to say it looks alot better today. The swelling and bruising have dramaticly improved. I have heard of others kind of re-bounding and swelling up later. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I am 3 days out from having my abs done. Still pretty sore. I feel stiff, like my stomach is tight. I was wondering if anyone has had lymphatic massage and if it helped? I am to wear my compression suit for 2 weeks and am also wondering how long you all wore it. I will post pics soon.

Today I am 1 week out of my flanks and 5 days out of my abs. I am swollen and I still feel numb. The lower part of my stomache is very bruised and swollen. I hope it goes down. Im not very patient and Im concerned that I am not healing. Keeping my fingers crossed. I have included a few pics.

I am a little more then 3 weeks out. I have been getting massage and I think it has really helped. Im trying not to be impatient but I really look forward to the end results. I have posted some pics that I took on friday. 3 weeks from my surgery. Im still wearing the compression garmet and Im wondering how long every one else wore theirs?
