Finally Did It: Liposuction 6 Days Ago - VA

I always wanted to have a flat belly, after months of dieting, working out including p90 x and Zumba, there was no way to get rid of my lower ab fat and love handles so I decided to move forward with surgery. I am 128lbs age 24.

Day 1 of Surgery:
I was very nervous but knew I was in great hands! The only thing that hurt was the IV needle but then I went to sleep, not so bad.
When I woke up I feel like I had been beaten up it was very painful :( nurse gave a pill and then I went home lie down and slept.

Day 2 Still in pain
Day 3-5 Felt much much better, at day 4 I was able to get out of bed without any help. Iam seeing some changes in my belly but no so much yet since its still swollen but definitely flatter :) My stomach feels very tight and numb, tomorrow they will be removing the drain (ouch) I hope it does not hurt I am a little cry baby

Day 6 Finally got my drain removed, It was...

Day 6

Loving my results so far, but I am still swollen which is normal 6 days post op, can't wait to see the final result.

9 week update- My lumps are smaller but still visible, I hope my stomach will look nice and flat :/ . I wonder if everyone gets lumps or its just certain people that do and if they completely disappear.

Anyone knows when will the lumps go away? I talked to a couple of people who went under lipo and never developed lumps? Is this normal? Or is this the doctors technique?

Year update

All I can say is wow, Dr. Widder did a great job. At the beginning I was a bit worried and even depressed because my stomach did not look the way I wanted too, however, it takes time to recover and see the full results. A year later, I can finally see the results and I'm extremely happy. Even though there are is a small lump, nothing is perfect. Overall I feel wonderful!
Washington DC Plastic Surgeon

Overall he is a good plastic surgeon he knew exactly what I wanted, and so far I can see a big difference in my waist size. Also he is very gentle and makes you feel very comfortable. The reason I am not fully satisfied is because I still have uneven belly and lumps even after two years after the surgery.
