So here I am. 50 years old planning on smart lipo on belly and sides end of April. I have read all the posts and they have really helped me understand what to expect. I can't believe how hard it is to maintain, let alone, lose weight at this age. I am about 5 feet tall and weigh almost what I did when I delivered my second daughter. i am just hoping to not have to buy size 12 anymore and can stop popping the buttons of my pants or needing elastic waists!!
I will post berfore and after pictures if anyone cares. Wish me luck!
So the big day is tomorrow! I am nervous as I have...

Now I have what the doctor descibed as an "apron" which that lovely overhang over my pubic area. It is likely that will nto completely disappear but I am trying to retrain the skin. I think they sucked out about 2 liters of fat! it was prettry gross. Then into the garment. NOT FUN.
Poor planning on my part but we needed to then take a 3 hour car ride. Luckily I could sleep the whole way. Spent the night in a hotel with chux and paper sheet under me. Draining a lot but I guess that is a good thing. My husband was great helping me up and down. Tylenol was enough for the pain but took every 4 hours religiously. The next day we had signed up for 5K charity walk well that was nice to watch!! I had some mild nausea but it want away with Benadryl. We had a nice dinner with my daughter then back to bed. Enjoyed my first shower. No dizziness but really bruised. Some areas hurt more than others like my sides and my upper abdomen. I got back in the garment quickly.
Sunday was better just sore. I was walking around like I worked out too hard. Getting in and out of our jeep was the hardest part.
Monday back at work. Clearly a difference is my waist and belly. My belly is swollen but it is still better. my pants are a little loose but that is probably from this garment. Oh by the way..ask your doctor what tyoe of garment. I paid $100 for it but it a FLEXEES garment that I could have gotten from TJ Maxx for $19.99.
As of today I say worth it!! I will post my pictures later.
Day 4 post op: I am having some trouble sleeping...
