Hello everyone! I am journaling my transformation...

Hello everyone! I am journaling my transformation and am pleased to do so. I had a tummy tuck & breast implants in December of 2009. It went well and realized that I still had to work out. So I was working out 7 days a week and had a personal trainer. I looked good, but not like I totally expected..my body fat was still 30%...ugh!
I was promoted in February of 2011 and my work schedule has me extremely busy from AM to PM, so working out was kicked to the curb. However, I started to realize that with all that working out, I still did not lose my ugly body fat! This was a good eye opener for me.
Recently I started to do research on Smartlipo and decided that this will make total sense for me. I was a chubby little girl when I was young, so its time to get rid of the fat cells that I produced when I was that chubby little girl.
I will be going through 3 different phases of smart lipo body transformation (as I am calling it). The first one will take place on July 7, 2011 for my posterior hips, flanks upper and lower abs and pubic area. The 2nd operation will be on August 25 for the inner and outer thighs and bra pad area. Then the 3rd in October for my arms (yes!! my arms, I have those heredity flabby arms ~ cause even when I was working out hard, that fat would not go away!!).
I am very excited to see this progression. I love my body, don't get me wrong, I love the shape and skin tone with the skin elasticity. However, the layer of fat of which I produced while I was a youth has got to go so I can feel comfortable in my own skin!
I will be going to Cancun in December and how cool will it be with less body fat and more of an awesome figure! I am latin, so the latin curves will truly come out. :)
I will let you know how each phase goes, plus this helps me to share with all of you as I am keeping this a secret from those around me.
Talk with you later and if you have any encouraging words...I would appreciate it that as well.
I went to the Doctor yesterday for blood work....

The doctors office will also be ordering my compression garment, so I got measured for that as well.
I must say that this office & procedure is very well organized & I feel that I am getting better treatment than I did from my first cosmetic surgeon's office.
Getting very excited!!

Well I had my inner and outer thighs done in August and just got my arms, upper bra and axilus lipo. I am so pleased with the results of my flanks, abs, lower back, outer & thighs. Still not seeing the full results from the inner thighs, but I will give it a full 6 months before making final assessment.
I am so excited about having my arms done, this was such a hard area for me to get any results with exercising. I had firm muscles underneath all the fat. So I am happy I finally got this done.
Today is day 3 since I have had the cool lipo done, I am very swollen, however, I know the drill, it will be sometime before I get the any results, so I am glad I got it done in October...long sleeves are in for now!
I am hoping to post pictures for all of you soon of all the areas I had done....
I am very, very happy with all the cool lipo I had...

As you heal, you will swell, so taking good care of yourself with you diet & drinking plenty of water is imperative.
As time goes by, you will see your results, the swelling goes down & your body begins to take it's shape! I love how it's all turning out!
The doctor told me to give each procedure 6 months before deciding on whether I'd like to get anything touched up. So far so good. The only thing I see thus far are my inner thighs, but I will be patient.
Loving it all so far!!! No regrets!!!

I'm looking forward to my results.
I'll keep you posted.
Dr. Turok & his staff were fabulous! Everyone was very compassionate & explained everything that was happening along the way at each separate procedure. Protocol is extremely important to them to be sure there is consistency & safety for the patient. The fact that you also get Zerona treatments with each procedure is incredible for the price of the cool lipo surgery along with the Zerona treatments. I've had a tummy tuck & breast implants from another cosmetic surgeon & Dr. Turok far out exceeds all expectations! Thank you Dr. Turok & staff!!!
