Well it has now been 4 months since my abdominal lipo, the swelling and lumpiness has really started to fade away, this really does prove that 'patience is a virtue'
I have put some new pics up for u to see the difference.

the clinic show procedures on irish tv so i guessed they wouldnt want to have a bad name,payment process was strange as i was asked for the money upfront and 3months after i still hadnt rec'd a receipt, after asking 3 times.

I am an RN and I think you should see your primary car MD, (not the same clinic that did the procedure). The swelling and tenderness this long after the surgery, should not be. this could be an infection.

Hhi there, thanks for your message, the consultant has told me to go back in three months as things are still not settled, but most people seem to happy by the 3month stage, so im a little unhappy about it. I would love to know how you get on, would you keep me posted on your progress? i had my op in wicklow but i live in mayo...all the best for wednesday xx

It sounds like the only thing that was worth the money was the professors bedside manner! I would definitely be asking 4 a revision free of charge as it sounds like they botched up U're after care so why not the procedure also? I definitely believe U should of healed after 3 months my love, get a second opinion 4 sure!!! Do take care & best to U 4 & in the future with U're procedure xxx

Welcome to RealSelf! By professor do you mean your plastic surgeon? And are the photos posted above before and afters?

I'm sorry you were left with a result you're not satisfied with! Do you think you'll be seeking a revision, or just living with what you've got now?
