Lovehandles Are No More! - Milwaukee, WI

I have had two children and really hated my love handles. I don't have a lot of stretch msrks or baby fat but I never seemed to gain weight proportionate what so ever. I have a little stomach, small legs and huge love handles. It was hard to find jeans, I hated not being able to wear tight shirts w my jeans. I just got sick of it.. I researched and then found my doctor. He was wonderful! I wanted to be beautiful before Mi vacation july 12th so I was bikini ready, he moved surgeries around and got me in a week later!!!! I felt pain during the fluid injection but it was only temp, and no pain during lipo just pressure. Day after surgery I took my pain meds and found out I was allergic to anything with opiates. So needless to say I suffered and still suffer a week after a lot of pain and no relief. When I take off my compression garnments I get instantly light headed and feel like i am going to fall over. They def make the bruising and swelling feel better when bring worn. I work at a desk job. And I took off for a week. I am back, and sitting up right with my compression bandages is horribly painful. The bruising is pretty bad and swelling isnt down as much as I had hoped it would be. I feel really sick right now. But you know the benefits outweigh the pain, it was surgery your going to have pain. The results are out of this world!!!!! My body had never looked so beautiful. I cannot wait to measure my waist and try on a pair of my jeans. It was worth it and my swelling hasnt even gone down yet. If you want your confidence back and your beautiful body its well worth it, and I say do it!!!! The only thing was people under express the recovery time. So make sure your able ti have enough to get healed faster!!

Found out I had an infection today which doesnt seem to surprise me with how swelled i am on my left love handle.. I really just want some sort of relief to feel better. I am getting nervous that I may never get to be in jeans without this garment and feeling pain. I have had three bowels in a week. Eating is difficult because i get very sick. Came home from my first eight hour day back at work in a level 8 pain and literally hit my bed. I just want to feel healthy again...
Yes kirsty I am now on my second batch and I started to feel Wayyy better when i woke up this morning! Swelling is still very obvious bruising as well but I am feeling better body wise.

Today is a week and one day... I feel like I am still fat! I am tender still, but painless otherwise. I pray this is just swelling and not my normal body... I guess that I am just not happy with my body, i want more work done. Lower and upper abs for sure...hoping this was worth it
You look awesome. When I first looked at this post, before reading what you wrote, I got really excited about my upcoming surgery. I said to myself (swear) that this is exactly the type of results that made me decide to do it. I am sorry you're in so much pain. At my pre-op the other day they told me to expect swelling for 9-12 months. I was like whoa! Seriously, you look awesome. Keep up with the recovery. Take things one day at a time. There are always more options for more stuff later. Just concentrate on healing for now :)

Doing good today! Yesterday I took a dip in my pool for a little bit and it was nice to be out of my garments for a short while. I feel like I am becoming so dependent of them that it will be hard to have them off completely. I am thinking about whening myself off. I out jeans on just to see even with swelling if my fat hung over and it didnt!!!! They were snug everywhere and no fat. That's exactly what i wanted. I look down at my belly and then hate it. But i eat horrible, and never work out prior to this surgery. I have a lot of work to do before i love my body completely. Sutures are still leaking a tiny bit, swelling is still ridiculous. I wish that it disnt swell so long so i could see my long term results, but that isn't happening after a week unfortunately!
Wow ur results came out really good; I had smart lipo.....best decision 4 me.

Well its been about two months now. I feel 100% and amazing. Now i was very hard on myself about my body. Lipo took care of Mi love habdles but it was up to me to get down to a weight I wanted. I was 138-141 before surgery 132 lbs after.. I'm not 122 lbs amd still have about 7 lbs to my goal weight! But I'm rocking it and feeling better then ever. Here's an updated photo :-)
Wow..... went to the same doctor and I was charged double for the same surgery.....wow...

It's been 10 months since my surgery after getting the surgery I was very inclined and dedicated to losing the rest of the weight. I was then 143 and now am 107 lbs. I will post new pictures! Again this isn't results from the surgery this is good dieting and hard exercise.
Amazing!

I researched this provider. My doctor left me immediately after surgery. I guess I expected him to do more? He also didn't call me back after my allergic reaction to morphine and ask me how I was doing pain wise with only tylenol to take because I couldn't take anything else, and he did not.
