Hi ladies, I am 5'1 and usually weight about 135-140 lbs. but I have been trying to gain as much weight as possible for this procedure and I am now at 152 lbs. I have my surgery scheduled for Dec 21, 2012. I decided to go to the same surgeon who did my tt because I feel comfortable with him and he's in town. I had my consultation today and he told me he would lipo my abdomen, lower back, upper back, inner and outter thighs. He said since I already had a tt a year ago, I don't have a lot of fat in my stomach so he thinks he could possibly only inject 400-500 cc's but will try to do as much as possible.
My concern is if this will be enough to make a difference? Secondly, should I try to gain more weight? I did ask him these two questions but he said since I already have a nice shaped butt ( I am not flat) and nice shaped hips, I won't need much. I just want to make sure I get my moneys worth and I want my results to be BAAMMM!!! lol

Day of treatment
Hello my bbl ladies! It finally happened today, approximately 5 hours ago. I have to say surprisingly I am not in extreme pain as I expected. Upon my awakening, i was in major pain; probably 8 out of 10 and did ask for pain medicine immediately . The nurse used a hospital blanket, fold it and rolled it and put it under my thighs in the wheelchair to stroll me out. I was surprised how sturdy it was so I asked if I could keep it and he said yes... yay! I laid down in the back seat of my friends car with a pillow and blanket and had moderate pain but no problems at all, and I even slept soundly. I'm now at my parents house (they'll be taking care of me during my recovery) and I've been walking around. I haven't even slept yet! My pain now is more like 3 out of 10 and I haven't even taken my prescribed pain medicine (vicodin). I have only taken bromelian and arnica. As for my results, I can't tell yet. I will post pics tomorrow. I'm just soooo thankful that I'm not in major pain as others have been thru. God is GREAT! ...... Thank you to the ladies who took their time to wish me good luck.I truly appreciate it! :)

1 day POST OP- I've been feeling pretty well. I have a lot of bruising on my thighs and knees and a little bit on my butt and back. I've been taking Arnica and Bromelain faithfully and I've also been eating a lot of pineapple and protein food and shakes. So I found a way to relieve pressure on my butt with this butt in garment. I've been fearing that it may be way too tight on my butt and hips so what I did was only buckle the first and second top hooks on the garment (I have a row of hooks on each of my sides; however, if anyone else wants to try this but only have 1 row of hooks I'm assuming you'd get the same effect) OMG this has relieved A LOT of pressure on my butt and hips while still having compression on abdomen, back, and thighs. In addition to this I also put my waist clincher just to make sure I'm compressing my waist very well. I feel a lotttt better! I will update again soon.

3 day PO - I am feeling well. The only problem I'm having is sleeping! Ughhh... Well I had my first PO appt and Dr. said everything looks fine. He said surg techs in the surgery room were saying they wish they had my body (blushing :)) He gave me a new size Medium garment (was wearing Large). My waist went from 33" and is now 30" ... yay! My goal is back to my 27". Goinfg to my family's Christmas party tonight as well as my husband's family's party and I'm nervous about not being able to sit down. I KNOW FOR A FACT everyone is going to insist on me sitting down for dinner and the only thing I can think of saying why I can't is due to a large pimple on my back thigh (yuck, gross and embarrassing to say! lol). Anyone else have any suggestions what other excuse I can say to them?? Suggestions appreciated! Pics posted. I will update again soon. Merry Christmas to everyone! :) xoxo
