I would consider myself someone that is in the gym...

I would consider myself someone that is in the gym often and wanted my arms to be better sculpted so I decided to have what little fat I had left in my arms removed. It's only been 33 days since surgery and I have not been able to get back into the gym yet but soon. I am really looking forward to pumping up my arms and seeing the real results come to life.
I am very happy I had it done although I am bummed that I am losing my established muscle fast. It takes 30 days to lose the muscle and will take me 60+ days to build it back. But I do think in the long run I will be happy with what I chose to do.
The downsides to having liposuction done to my arms is the garment I had to wear for the first 3 weeks was awful, I am tall so my arms are longer than usual and it did not fit right, it irritated my elbows so they became raw. The other thing I disliked was it was visable to everyone since the strap came right across the collarbone. So needless to say I didn't want to leave the house. My arms are still a numb and VERY stiff as though the muscles and tendons shrunk so when I bend my arms or lift them it is very painful. I can't complain though I did choose to do this.

Choose a Dr. that will take just a little more time to answer your questions and offer up some new things to think about. A Dr. that makes you feel rushed is never going to work to benefit you. But, if you don't ask your questions then they can't be blamed for not being able to read your mind.
