I never had a problem working out and keeping my weight down in college. I have been working full time 11 hours a day for 4-5 days a week for the last 7 years. This has not left me with much energy to work out. I started up my workouts again in October of last year and have lost all of 5 lbs with my thighs continuing to increase in size. I just started Insanity 2 weeks ago and my thighs grew another .5" in a week. I'm over it! It's time to get rid of these monster thighs of mine.
I went into the doctor asking for Smart Lipo which is all the craze right now. He said that we would be better off doing Tumescent Lipo instead. He explained that with the amount that we needed to take out, it would take way too long with smart lipo. My skin elasticity was still very good and wouldn't require a laser to help it bounce back.
So the procedure is scheduled for April 21st. We are going to do tumescent lipo under general anesthesia. I am having my upper and lower stomach, flanks, hips, inner and outer thighs, knees, and arms done.
I met with the nurse and had my pictures taken this week. The nurse spent over an hour with us explaining what will take place and how I will feel afterwards. What is cool about this place is that they include a 24 hour stay in the quote so that someone else is there to monitor you. That is included in my cost of $8775 as well as the anesthesia, the garment, the lab work, and $6000 for the lipo itself. I think it is a great price for everything that I'm getting done as well as a 24 hour stay with an emergency nurse.
I had gotten another quote in town who wanted $18,000 to do the same procedures but with Smart Lipo which I thought was supposed to be a cheaper procedure. Obviously I decided against going with him.
So I'm very excited. I've got my blood tests done and need to go pick up my meds before surgery. I've got Arnica coming so that I can start it a couple days before. Wish me luck!
I will upload photos soon.
