I am very aware that liposuction isn't a means for weight loss, but I hope it helps me jump start to the new me. I have been overweight for of all of my adult life and I hope to give my husband a sexier wife (seriously, everyone wants there spouse to be sexy).

I had an consultation with Dr. Shahine and he stated that he can make me look great. The before and after pictures in his office and website looks great to me. I am basically going to suck the fat out of my entire body - inner thighs, gut, lower back and flanks.

I will attemp to lose about 20lb before the procedure because I think if i am motivated beforehad, I wil be motivated afterwards.

Happy New Year to all. I have been so sick over...

Happy New Year to all.

I have been so sick over the weekend that I actually lost 5lbs - that is from not eating and sleeping my sickness away. So i have only 15lbs to go - that was easy. I hope I don't gain the 5lbs back.

My body transformation is in 3.5 weeks and I am getting so very nervous. the doctors ensured me that my body will be sculpted to close to perfection as it can be - as long as I wear my compression garment and follow his post-op care. I am reading various liposcution reviews on realself and I am hoping my results turn out great. I am very over-weight, I will post pics of my belly today. I have lost a lot of weight before and kept it off for years, since I gained the weight back - I am no motivation to excercise on a contious basis. I am really looking for a miracle.

I need to know what compression garment to get, because my doctor doesn't provide one. I also want to know the tricks to make the best out of my procedure. I am going to have to check the Brazilian Buttlife forum because those girls know how to make there tummy flat.

Until next time....

My surgery is in two weeks and it is time to prep my body. I began using firming loition to help prevent saggin skin after the procedure - hoping for a nice almost (really flat) stomach. I wil start stretching, and eating pineapples everyday.

The procedure is in less than 2 weeks so I believe...

The procedure is in less than 2 weeks so I believe it is time to get my must have list - the problem is I am not sure what I must have. So I am looking to purchase my garment today, so I text my doctor to ask him his opinion and signed my name and in parenthesis I wrote so nervous. He responded to the garment question and told me not to be nervous. I actually feel kind of good that I can converse with my doctor before the surgery actually occurs and not just his coordinator (although, she is a lovely woman).

Speaking of the coordinator, she told me that one of the Drs previous patients used a yoga mat (of course they cut it up) rather that the Foam. I am thinking the yoga mat route might be cheaper, but I still want the foam.. Not sure if this makes any sense. Most of my stomach flattening technique comes from the ladies over at the Brazilian Butt Lift Forum, they know al the best tricks. I am planning purchasing a tablet to wear under my garment as well as the foam to help it get flatter.

I am going to take Arnica and Bromelain (pineapple extract) supplements after the surgery to help wit the swelling and the bruising.

I will post my full body a few days before the surgery so I can track my progress.

Until next time my lovely forum friends

I began wearing the XL vest squeem about a week or two ago, and notice that it was too big - so I decided to order the Large. Last night I put the large on to go to bed just to get a feeling on how a real compression garment feel will. The Large garment was very tight and I had to call my husband to help me roll it down. At first I but it on the first hook, but the I wind up putting it on the tightest hook. Sleeping was very uncomfortable at first because I felt I could breathe, I just put about 4 pillows under my head and I slept the whole night with the garment.

I am not certain why I fit into the large especially since I haven't loss any weight since being sick.

Things I do that I feel is very important.
To be able to wear the garment all day, place any foam under the garment to prevent the pain of the garment metal from digging into your skin.
For ladies who have stomachs that look like mine, it is important to make sure your entire stomach is in your garment. I go inside from the top of my garment at pull my stomach up... I really think it helps...
Use firming lotion, super important

Until next time

Tonight will begin day 1/2 of my surgery - this morning was the firs time I ever dreamt about the procedure and it wasn't a nightmare, so hopefully that is a good thing.

The fact that the doctor is always late doesn't bother me as much (although I haven't experienced his lateness yet) - because I always show up to places a hour or two late. My appointment is a 7pm today, I am the first one for the night..
I will post before pictures tonight, hopefully.

Keep telling myself to breathe

Deuces, sexy ladies or soon to be sexy ladies.

I don't want to go into details about why I didn't have the procedure done, but it just didn't happen with Dr. Shahine. I do still think he would of gave me amazing results based on his before and after picture - and I honestly believed i would of look great. I am really bummed that I spent money on compression garments, foams, tablets and other items to help me recover. I am currently looking into large volume liposuction or a tummy tuck to have by the end of the month.I don't want to rush or just pick any doctor just for the sake of doing this procedure. I worked out a little this morning, just so i won't feel so fat. I am actually extremely sad that I did not have this procedure done - basically crying. I will keep you guys updated on my next steps - thank you all for wishing me well - even though I did not have the surgery.
