40 Years Old Engaged to Be Married 3/20/15 Ready for Lipo Procedure! - Jacksonville, FL

I am scheduled for my liposuction on my abdomen,...

I am scheduled for my liposuction on my abdomen, thighs, arms, back and flanks on 4/24/15 with Dr. Csikai! I've referred several of my friends to his office and everyone was pleased with the staff and Dr. Csikai! Everyone is warm, and friendly! I have nothing bad to say about my plastic surgeon! The best in Jacksonville! I've had a tummy tuck 1 year ago, and that was a success, can't wait to see the amazing results! Does anyone have any suggestions on do's and don'ts?
Okay, wishing you the best tomorrow. I am also scheduled for liposuction tomorrow.

I'm excited and nervous at the same time! I don't know whether to eat or not! I know I'm not supposed to eat or drink anything after 12midnight. But what do I eat? Before and After. I can't wait to see the full results.

Yeah, I am not sure what to eat tonight. I know that after I will do very light with tons of liquids and low salt to avoid swelling. I just don't want to go in tomorrow all bloated and stuffed up, but I also don't want to be hungry and grouchy in the am either. Luckily I am first up in the morning and need to arrive at 6:30am.

No don't be dismayed. Not at all, I am so happy with my results it was sooooooooooo worth it. I just wanted to make sure to convey my experience so that everyone could hear how it was, for me. My surgeon has had it done and she was in office the next day. That's how different we can all be. I am 10 weeks post lipo and I am still sore. I also still have numbing and strange sensations throughout my thighs. I wore my compression garment for more than 2 months because I felt jiggly and sore, it was a comfort to me rather than a nuisance. I no longer feel jiggly. I am thrilled with it all and would do it all again. The only regret I have it that I wasn't able to do it 10 or more years ago. Just make sure you have the time and funds and you will be great!

Well it's Saturday! It's not that bad! The pain is tolerable, Im kinda grogy and I can already see the results! I'm still swollen and see the change. It hurts to get up after sitting down for a long period of time. I cant wait to see the actual results!
Glad to here you are doing well. I have that same stiffness. I think I am turning the corner. The arnica gel is like a miracle and feels so good as soon as i apply it. Will need to get more of that for sure.

9 Days in

Hello everyone it has been 9 days since my surgery! At first it was painful, but as each day passed each day gets better. The compression garment is un comfortable, I'll take it off when I shower(in semi cold water) it feels better. I also will take it off when it's being washed. Massaging is done while when I'm out of the garment. I can't wait to see the final results after swelling! I did try on some clothes, and can see a change already. I've also been out and about which wasn't bad, it just felt like a serious workout and made me tired. does anyone have any suggestions about expiditing the bruising to go away? Any suggestins period is welcomed. Pictures to come soon.
Okay, day 9 too. I start some massage therapy ( endomoligie) tomorrow. Hoping it will help with swelling and especially bruising. I will let you know. I just wish I could fast forward a few weeks and be swell free or at least less and no bruising. Pain okay, but I just like felling 100% No regrets but I am not good at resting so I am just ready to be all better. I know I have to be patient and this is all normal but I am just whining. Post some pics soon. So glad you are having results despite the swell.

Day nine, great. I bet u have seen some great improvements already. I was about 85-90% back by day ten, in fact I flew back to Colorado from Phoenix that day. Good luck with the healing journey.
