Hi everyone, I am getting ready to do my liposuction to my ABS, waist and lower back. I decided to do liposuction and then I will have a tummy tuck in 3 months or 4 months later. My PS said this would get me the flattest in the ABS area. I have been reading all the other stories it is great to have some information and see the pics.

Hi, my

surgery went well today. I woke in burning pain but medication took of it. MY PS took 2 1/2 liters of stuff. Dr didn't spend much time with after but the nurse was great.

These pics about 24 after. Incontent pads or Maxie pads are great for the drainage.

8 days post op

Ok so today was going to be my whinny day . That torture garment my PS gave me with the side zipper has been a real pain in my side ( to the point where I was in tears) and asking myself why did I do this. While I was out looking for a less of a torture garment I went in to the miss dept at a store and tried on a straight tank, for the first time in at least 17 years I liked what I seen ( no love handles ) wooohoo bought 4. Husband might have to put me on a budget lol! They were 1/2 price.

17 days post op

Recovery is going well. My weight is down to 122 lb. My husband said the sweetest thing last night "Hun even when you lean over your not fat". I had love handle before. He has been amazed so far about my liposuction, I think more then me lol. I am posting new pics. I was hoping not to have to have a tummy tuck done. But I have a lot of loose skin. I will wait it out and give it some time. My left side is not as smooth as my right, I have been messaging it. Hope everyone is recovering well. Best wishes.

Since my lipo I had a tummy tuck ( April 7th). I have worked out in the gym heavily since my lipo. The TT help me get rid of the lose skin I had ( hated it). I hope everyone is doing well.

Holy hanna your TT turned out GREAT! Congrats!!!! Do you think it was easier to have the lipo done first then the TT .. instead of the TT only? I"m in the same boat.. doing lipo first.. and TT later.

I am not sure what to with this page, Dr. Haas did my lipo last May. I have a new page on my TT. I went with Dr. Lee Corbett and had my TT on 4/7/14. I am very happy at this time.

Your results look great and it will be worth it in the end. I've been having tantrums throughout the day too. I had to switch my CG for something else too because I felt I was suffocating.

Occhibei, hi I feel better, just having a moment. Do you have a lot of burning pain with your lipo?
  • Reply
Hi Teresa Lou, I was mostly sore not much pain. My issue now now is the unbelievable swelling. Burning pain doesn't sound right. The other ladies may have experienced something similar. Maybe you should call the surgeon.

Hi Occhibei I have some swelling, feel really big in front ABD area. The burning is what is what getting me (will get better with time ) I hope (: I pray you have a fast recovery. This web site is wonderful to have. Have a great day.

You are looking great. So the doctor can do a TT that soon after lipo? I just had lots of lipo and I was told only after 1 year could we look at a TT. But I dont care about that anymore. It has taken me 3 months to feel better and if I have a bit of loose skin who cares.. Its ok to take tylonel then advil later and it really helps with swelling and inflammation. Also arnica helps so much.

Oops,Thanks, I will check out arnica I have been wanting a TT for over 13 years. As soon as possible I will be getting one. I feel pretty good. Sometimes I feel like a over inflated balloon. How is your recovery going!

It has taken me 3 months to feel better. A long journey. But amazing results. I will never wear a bikini again as there is rippling on my stomach but no pouch at all. My inner thighs dont touch. I just dont want anymore surgery. For my age 61 I look pretty dam good..ha ha ha..ok my hubby says so...love him. Now I work out with my trainer and lots of yard work. My back is till sensitive and kind lof numb so I know it takes 6-12 months for final result...But I had 4000CC and he even on my back neck part...wow...just takes time to heal.

Sounds right. I am 5'9 and was 157 pre-op. At 5 days I weighed myself and I was 162. Grrrrrr....but today is two weeks and the serious swelling has calmed and now it is normal swelling so I weighed myself and I am 153. :) And that is still with lots of swelling so stay strong!!!
