I am 6'2, 215lbs 34-year-old male. I workout 3-5 times a week to stay tone & healthy (not trying to be Mr. Hulk), but even at my best/thinnest I always had a tummy. I tried one session of ColdSculpting (3 areas) and had a minuscule improvement, which was exciting, but not enough. Once I did some research and the math I decided Lipo was the way to go.
I had my abdomen & flanks done. Dr felt like the flanks were optional, but I figured it would be best just to do both at the same time, so I did not regret not getting them done.
I am only a few days in, but very excited. The first time the garment came off my stomach was FLAT! Event with swelling. I am looking forward to seeing how these all turns out over the next few weeks/months.
The procedure was easy. Yeah, first few days I have been in some pain/discomfort, but completely manageable.
I'll try to post additional photos as things progress.
This is the first cosmetic surgery I have ever had...
1st Week down
Went to the Dr for my 1 week follow up. He is very happy with the results... 1000CC removed from the front and 500CC total for flanks, he said that is appx 75% fat & 25% fluids, etc. So maybe 3-5Lbs of FAT which will be nice, but I am more looking forward to the minimal fat layer on my stomach not actual lbs lost.
My pain is almost gone. Full off all meds.
No need for a picture this week. My swelling is at the max (the doc says) and should start going down everyday moving forward... I actual started seeing it reduce the next day.
I get to stop wearing my compression garment and start working out again in one more week!
Sounds like week 3 will be more promising for additional post-off pics.
Four weeks down! Almost feel 100%. Still a bit of tenderness in the flanks. Feels like swelling is 95% gone, still a bit in my lower abs. I have resumed normal working out this last week, so hopefully that starts to accelerate progress.
I see the doc again at week 6, so I'll provide another update then.
Still happy with results & progress...
