Lipo of Upper & Lower Abs/ Wanting Good Results - Milwaukee, WI

I wanted to do something about my big belly since...

I wanted to do something about my big belly since I gained the weight during my daughter's pregnancy....Becoming a 1st time grandma was stressful and the most precious thing I've ever experienced...I ate a lot with no working out. After,the birth, I bout a treadmill....I was motivated and loss 25 pds...Gained it back, but not as much. I been trying t make diet changes. I have been considering lipo for about 6 yrs now. ...My PS recommended a tummy tuck for the best results from my examination..... I was not to that point yet of wanting that procedure.....Maybe if I'm not satisfied of my stage 1 lipo....I'm currently feeling nervous and excited...I want good results and to be satisfied with one procedure. I'm 50, and want to be satisfied and not even have to consider more procedures. I will post before & after pics..worried about the pain too.

Trying to upload pictures no luck yet.

Just 24 hours post op . I'm just trying to recover in all my binders and deal with the pain...I also wished the had emptied my bladder before I left for home...threw up on the way home and could not control my bladder. Peed on my new car seats... will need to have it detailed now.....pissed off. Can't wait to lay down either....sleeping in my recliner now. I'm not leaking either. I have foam pads over my incision sites. Well that is all I have for today.

Itching today.....having a hard Time fastening the garment. But for good results, I keep it fasten. I go back to work on Tuesday... I had my procedure on a Thursday... I'm not feeling so sure if this is going to effect my healing....I do have a desk job, but I'm concerned about how fast I'm regaining my strength...still bent over and taking slow steps around the house.

Not happy.I have an indentation on my right side of my abdoman. I'm now 10 days post op.....praying for the best:)

Well deleted my pics today...I'm just over a month...

Well deleted my pics today...I'm just over a month and and (1) week this coming Thursday after my procedure. .The jury s still out on my case. I'm not sure if I'm able to live with my results of just lipo, just thinking that maybe saving for the tummy tuck would have approved my emotional state....then all the pain & the time healing would have been worth it.

What was made to make u feel it was ur fault? The indent? Thats I ever heard about soaking in a tub...what is that suppose to do??

yes...my garments were always snapped and smooth. but i remenber leaving the suri center that one side felt smaller then the other. i just thought the one side needed more padding. my ps said my fat was so uneven. im suppose to move the skin upward in hopes that it will smooth itself out.

hmmm...its not YOUR fault...their job is too even it out...see I was told the opposite...I have to do massages daily...I have the harder, bumpier area though in the middle of my stomach...so I have to massage down and away from the belly button to push fat away from center to lower extremities. I would DEF stay on the dr and make sure if it continues too look that way that they need to do a retouch a remove more fat from that area and smooth out...U have done nothing wrong...we pay too much MONEY for the procedure to not have it done right...again...im here if u need to vent..so many others have helped me out on here...GOOD LUCK...talk soon.....
