I'll be calling Tammy in the am to see if she can post poned it for another week..but this will only give me about 7 days off..hope its enough time to heal well enough to go back to work ;/

So I got my blood work done today..kinda bummed tho Kaiser wouldn't honor my lab work from Dr afifi so I had to pay outta pocket..waaaah!! Original it was goin to total to approx $ 186 bux however I located a site/service online that helps with reducing the costs and was able to get the price reduced to $69. Super simple safe and ez service

So far this is all I have and plan to have going into surgery:

Boppy pillow
Lipo foam
Wedge pillows

Any must haves/suggestions that i left off my lil list are much appreciated!!

Hi girls!! Feeling woosy but I made it out of surgery...bleeding all over the place not fun at all...well like most girls on here I don't seem to have instant results tummy is super swollen and my booty doesn't look like its been touch Nd thts with the gauze..but my post op is Friday ..ill let u know how it goes and hopefully post pics then xoxo

Quick update girls: 2nd post op I was super sore...

Quick update girls: 2nd post op I was super sore and still couldnt eat mom made me a bowl of fresh fruit n yogurt in the am and some yummy chicken soup which I was able to handle in the evening. The pain meds,really didn't do much for me however I was really never in pain just sore as heck.

I've been takin my arnica and bromelin faithfully..really do think it has helped with bruises and soreness. I have had no problems with using the,restroom.

3rd day po/ po with afifi: my po went well .Dr assistant Tammy said girl Afifi was excited after Ur surgery said she made u look like a rock star ;*) she soo sweet!! kinda nervous cause my home is about an hour away from her office and was worried about killing the fat.cause of sitting ..anyways she put 875 on the left cheek/ hip and 760 in the right. I have been wearing the vedette compression garment butt in mid shorts..Doc was concerned that it was squashing the booty so she suggested I cut it in the rear to give my booty room. My tummy is looking good although there is a lot of fluid and.swelling underneath..been trying to massage,it myself and I can literally feel the fluid moving around..taking it day by day and can't wait for the end results in a couple months..still workin on pics ..can't upload from my phone ans haven't been around a desktop

Day 5 and soreness seems to be getting better day...

Day 5 and soreness seems to be getting better day by day. I switched out garments today but not sure if the new is given me enough compression..thinking of throwing the,squeem on top and hope it works. I have been ready to sit and its driving me nutts!! Being on my tummy and standing all day is getting to be daunting ..any one with tips on how to sit and preserve fat.send em my way!! Booty and hips are rock hard not sure of my measurments ..but hips are pretty wide and projection and fullness aren't quiet as big as my hips. Just waitng on my swelling to go down on my tummy cause my Dr contoured the shit out of me =*D

I'm must clarify that I asked Dr to focus on on...

I'm must clarify that I asked Dr to focus on on flattening out my tummy and mainly my hips ( my #1 wish pic was the girl in the grey leggings n then the chic in blue bikini) cause of some uneveness and flatness..didn't really care about projection and I feel she did exactly wht I asked for..I know,from this point its up to me to enhance Wht she,did by sticking to my diet and to continue on wearing my garment ( she said a minimum of 8 weeks since I had kids..this will help with the loose,skin) she really is A Gem in Cali and def worth every penny ;*)

9 day post op..overall feeling good. Last night I struggled with sleep due to my body itching like crazy ! I tried to tuff it out but ended up ripping off my garment and lathering my tummy and back with Allegra itch relief wonders.

My current struggle is locating a garment that fits right. Ive had to return several because they dont fit however the 2 Ive been using are way to big..kinda frustrating.. Ive been wearing a medium squeem over my garment with foam across my belly underneath.. hopefully I can locate a good 1 soon cause i'm in need.

My next issue is the size of my hips..I was realistic in the fact that my hips would not be exactly the same however mine are pretty obvious and ridiculously off. My right is high and sticks out and my left continues to shrink..not sure what to do to fix this crossing my fingers it will all figure it self out in a couple more weeks.

Have yet to start massages..Are they necessary? Also , how do you avoid smashing your ass-sets during the massage?

I think it's kind of a to each his own thing on the massages. I had 1 lymphatic massage and 1 free massage from the spa at my ps office and that was it. I have no lumps and bumps at all and would just rub out sore areas on my own.

Hi baby.. 3 areas..tummy,back AND flanks

It is more than likely swelling bcuz it sounds like you don't have the right amount of compression. Massages may not be necessary if you are not retaining fluid and swollen all over. 9 days out is very early.

Ok thanks bbeautiful...and I think ur right on the u have any recommendations kn garments at this stage?
  • Reply
If u can swing the price fajate disenos dprada are hands down my favorite garments, get he one with the three rows, if not get a squeem. The fajate will balance out the compression news for the specific areas. The squeem will possible crinkle at the hip. Leary Abt what u want on hips or butt if not faja. U shld only b laying on your stomach for the next 6 weeks

Yes I'm laying flat on my tummy far as compression on hips/ butt..I feel like it smashed my butt makin me think it was killing my fat cells there

Myb u want a butt out garment. It is still hard? Hard to say bcuz depends on your swelling. If u are not swollen n legs only waist area then focus on getting waist down and let the but and hip take it on growth. Try flowy dresses and pants no leggings or jeans. I am trying to think back to my first two weeks. What is dr. Afifi advice?
