Breast Reduction and Liposuction on Flanks, Hips, and Abdomen USA
I am 20 years old, 5'4" and 165 pounds. After I...
I have been looking at real self reviews for months and didn't think I wanted to write my own review, but after setting my surgery date, I decided I wanted to get more personal tips and help and also be a help to anyone in a similar situation. Here's the beginning of my journey!
A little under 3 weeks away! Questions!
My first surgeon made me so nervous and scared, and left me feeling stupid and like I would look deformed after surgery, and basically mocked my liposuction request and wouldn't even give me a quote. But i was going to go with her because a close friend who recently passed away had my exact measurements and went to her and came out looking amazing.
Well, my current doctor was SO great and friendly, AND suggested flank lipo, and when I asked, suggested hip and abdomen lipo, and then proceeded with a quote HALF her price for JUST reduction and the exact same price for all 4- reduction, flanks, hips, and abdomen. Even his nurse said he was giving me an awesome deal. Maybe since I was just 20, using my life's savings, and had zero insurance... All in all, out of pocket I will be paying $8,021 for everything. Just wanted to specify because it was tremendously hard for me to find prices similar to my situation. Any wayyyyy, questions!
If anyone is willing to give me a quick shout with opinions, I want to throw out some things I'm curious about:
What did you do weeks prior to prepare?
I am currently taking 12 days off for recovery (I am a baker) is that too much or too little?
What should I be eating? Should I be following any general diet rules?
How long do you wear the lipo corset after the procedure?
Did any of you notice huge liposuction results? From my hips to my neck is my WORST area.
Did this procedure make you more motivated to work out after?
Just asking for opinions, nothing super detailed, I know I'll be asking my doctor all this and way more!
I'm just so anxious! Having SO MANY small boob dreams! Haha :)
12 more days till surgery.
I don't think this will hit me till I'm at some of my pre ops. Right now I'm just focussing on work and getting things in order before I'm stuck in bed for days.. This is just a quick update! I will post pics after surgery of me now and me then! I'm wondering if I should start a post on the liposuction part of this to that section, any thoughts?? Breast reduction is pretty much just half of my surgery journey. Will update soon!
