Tumescent lipo upper and lower abs and flanks, South Jersey

Not bad at all... Couple of little twinges and started to get anxious at the end (4-1/2 hours) but not at all the pain that some people described. The best way I can describe it that some people can understand is (when we got to the end and the fine tuning part) when you get a tattoo and they are coloring in one spot and it starts to get sore just from being in the same spot. Dr Garber kept asking me if i was ok and telling me everything he was doing, why and how much more. Told him it was no problem cause i wanted him to do whatever he felt was necessary. Had 1 litre from flanks and 2 litres from upper and lower abs. Will see what tomorrow brings !

Day 2 ... Better. Still a bit sore but nothing I can't handle. Did take 1/2 of a pain pill at 9am but nothing since. Draining has stopped.
I did call the doctor and ordered a 12" (height) binder. Because I had upper and lower abs done I am wearing 2 separate ones to make sure that everything stays in place and is not hanging out. With the 12" I will only wear one. Ordered 2 so I could make sure I have a clean one cause they cannot be put in dryer.
Still absolutely glad I did it !

Another quick update... Take put the tux pads as soon as your draining stops... Just did it and made a HUGE difference in how I feel. When I unwrapped I had marks where the pad had wrinkled... Looks to me like the swelling has gone down some and I can see a difference already.

Day 3...
Got a 12" binder which covers whole ab area top to bottom and so much more comfortable. The 9" ones from the Dr. We're not quite long enough so I had to wear 2 so nothing hung out the bottom or top.
My husband sees a big change ( I have a waist now ! ) but I'm not gonna look in a mirror unti my 2 week check up cause I don't want to look until some more swelling is down.
Am taking 1/2 pain meds today cause it is helping me get around much easier.
Would still absolutely recommend it to anyone who has areas that are just not responding to exercise.
Am watching what I am eating especially now cause I can't so any exercise for a little bit.
Hope these comments help. Will probably bot be able to post come Monday when I go back to work but want to let anyone considering what my experience has been the first couple of days post smart lipo.

Better every day...tried on uniform pants and even with swelling I can see a small difference already...however, I don't think the 3" belt buckle is gonna work. Will just have to work around it...no pain meds yet today but will take 1/2 before bed.
Found that the recliner for the first couple of days, because of it being sore moving around, was the way to go but did ok sleeping in bed last night...
Kinda got used to my little afternoon naps but work tomorrow !

2 weeks today. Already see dramatic results !! Only thing bothering me is flanks are still a little sore and belly button is sore(probably from bending and such)

LOVE LOVE LOVE DR. GARBER !! He made this feeling of confidence a reality. Am so excited to see how this keeps going when I finally cn get back to regular gym work outs .
Dr. Brett Garber

Talked me through the entire process and kept asking if I had any pain. If I even said that I had a twinge, he would stop and put more medicine in until I was ok. He is awesome.
