so Far so good. i got a combination of Smart and Traditional lipo 2 days ago.
i actually went in a few weeks ago 4 a smart lipo consultation and ended up signning up for a miix of smart and traditional on my abdomen and midback. i am 5'2 155lbs age 29. with a hr glass figure. lately my fat has been goin to my stomach making me look extra fat seeing as i already have wide hips.
Anyways, the dr is a certified plastic surgeon and i was most confident with his skill then the other drs i visited.
the day of i was super nervous. the anistisiologist insereted my iV and said tell me when u begin to feel different. next thing i know i was waking up with a nurse saying i did great 2 hrs later lol. i went home in a robe and wrapped tight in the tight garment they put on me. the ride home was kinda uncomfortable, mixed with the dreammy feeling of Omg i really did it. nno turninng bk now. i got home took some pain meds and got n bed. i couldnt realy sleep because i was istructed not to lay all the way down. so i was proped up on 3 pillows with my husband talking 2 me and not letting me sleep 4 more than 2 hrs at a time. i took pain meds every 4 hrs because i was scard 2 even witness wat it would feel like without. it only kinda hurt when i was trying to get comfy or gettig up out of bed or sitting down. later that nite i fixed my own sandwhich and did a little house work, nothing that required bending. 2 bad i had to pee every hr feels like. finally i took a sleeping pill & slept like a baby 4 the nite.
day2- woke up swole & bruised. so bruised i thought i saw blood. usually a size 10 i think i swole 2 a size 14. the swelling hurts when u touch it like a super workout at the gym. i was moving slow but still getting around. id say i looked and felt like 7-8 mnths pregnant. took a sleeing pill and slept threw the nite fine.
day 3- woke up wayyyy smaller. swelling going down. still swole but feeling better. chilling in bed right now but its easier to move around and get comfy. im even leaning to 1 side. ill upload photos later.
