Hello Ladies, I am three days post op. I don't even know where to begin.

This has definitely been an exprience that I will never forget. Its far worse than child birth and after haveing had four children I Tought there was nothing that I couldn't handle. I am one who has a high tolerance for pain but this was totally unexepected. I tried reading everyone's blogs to try and prepare myself for this an it did help to a certian extent but by far it's something that you will not expect. Ladies don't get me wrong, I am not saying all this to scare anyone, I am just keeping it real. As the days go on, I feel better and better.

Make sure that you have someone there with you that can pretty much be at your beckon call at every minute. Bless my Mother's hearts she has not gotten any rest for constantly being by my side trying to make sure that I am alright. I love that little woman.

Well I had lipo of my full stomach, back, inner thighs and arms and a mini tuck. Dr. M gave me 1100 ccs to each each. I am really excited about how it is going to turn out. I currently have a lot of swelling going on so it is hard to tell what the outcome my be. Prior to surgery, i was 37-32-39. I didn't think i would have enough fat for 1100 ccs but I guess I did.

As a little hint to the wise, make sure you are constanly rotating positions and do your best to get up periodicly and walk around a bit. it really does help.

I will post some pics soon, right now i'm not in a good state and condition to do anything but take it easy and relax. for all those that posted their expreince before, I truly thank you becaue it was helpful.

Tomorrow I will be two weeks post op. Hoping to get these drains taken out. They are so worrisome. :) Well I will post a few pics so ya'll can see what i'm working with.

Well come this Wenesday I will be offically four...

Well come this Wenesday I will be offically four weeks post op. I feel great almost back to normal. I have been trying to retrain myself to sit again which is kind of scary because all i can think of is that I'm going to loose my newly founded Bootay! LOL Sitting down for the first time was really wierd and I could only sit for 15 mins. That was the longest 15 minutes of my life. It felt more like 15hours. LOL. This whole experience has been life changing for me to the point where it is hard to express in words. I thank my family and best friend for all the support and help they gave me in the beginning because you are pretty much handicapped initially. I will post some more pics of my current shape within a day or two. So ya'll can tell me if I have anything to worry about. My poor kids got tired of hearing me say "I think Its getting smaller" LOL. I will also post my measurements later today. I have to find a measuring tape. Well for all those that are freshly post op.... happy healing!! And for those that are well and beyond the intial post op......I hope your results are everthing that you wanted!!! Have a blessed day all!!

Well I am offically one month post op. Someone...

Well I am offically one month post op. Someone had asked my current measurements so I just wanted to post an update. My before measurements were 37-32-39 now they are 36-29-40 1/2.

Almost seven weeks post op. All is well, I think...

Almost seven weeks post op. All is well, I think i'm almost 100 percent back to normal. I'm still sore in all the lipo areas and my mini tuck is healing nicely. I think I've lost some volume but over all I can still see a difference from where I started from. Can't wait till I reach the three month mark. For those of you that can afford to take off longer than three weeks I would highly recommend it. I wish I could have been able to be off from work for at least six weeks but due having to go back to work I only stayed off my butt for three weeks. I believe had I been able to take more time off, I would not have lost as much volume. Never the less I am still satisfied and happy so far with my results.
Baltimore Plastic Surgeon

Dr M and his staff is very professional and pleasent to work with. The all made me feel at home and comfortable. I have a lot of respect for Mr. M because you can tell that its not all about "money" for him. He is guenuinely concerned about the patient's needs ands and wants and he is very forthcoming with information and expectations. And for that I have so much respect for him because may Docs are just trying to make as much as hey can verses trying to make their patient happy. All though I would never want to do this again, If i were to decide to have any plastic surgery done again, Dr. M would be the only one I would want to operate on me. He is in my eyes the world's best.
