Hey everyone!! I had my smart lipo ultra done yesterday!!! They said they couldnt do my arms because it was mostly skin, not fat. And they only tightened my bra roll area because there was no fat there either. I thought any area of my body that I could grab was, fat, but apparently not. Anyways, this is how my experience has gone so far.
Day of procedure: I got there at 7:30am. They gave me my medicine (which I was nervous to take because I've never taken Xanax or Oxycodone in my life), and I changed into the paper underwear and bra. The doctor marked me up and put me on the table. The worst part is the numbing shot. I have 3 tattoos, but that still hurt just as bad. After that, the second most painful part happened: the tumescent(or however you spell it) fluid. This hurts soooo friggen bad. Once it is all numb, then he used the fat melter and sucker on my abs first. It tickled a little by the hip bone, and hurt a little as he got closer to the ribs. It was really funny because he did the right side first, and I could tell the difference from the left side. It looked like a hill! After my abs and part of my love handles, he flipped me on my side to finish the lovehandles. I was disgusted with how much fat came out of those babies. Next was the bra roll. First he tried the fat sucker, but nothing came out and it hurt (which is a sign there is no fat there). So instead he tightened the area. Then for the worst area EVER: my thighs. This hurt like a b*tch. I had my banana roll, outer, and inner thigh done. Every single part of the procedure on my thighs hurt. He said that since I have so much muscle, it hurts to separate the fat from the muscle. I was like whatever, just suck it out! The most fat came from my outer and inner thighs (I was face down and couldn't see the banana roll fat). I really had to pee, but he said the only thing I could do was pee in a bed pan. I changed my mind and decided to hold it. When it was all finished, it took about 4 hours. I don't know if I was high on drugs or what, but it did not feel like 4 hours, and I was awake the whole time. He said most people fall asleep in the first 30 minutes, but not me! So afterwards, I had to stand up as the fat and blood and whatever else comes out dripped down my body and the nice assistant cleaned it up. She bandaged me all up. Then I had to get butt naked in front of her as she put the garment on me. My fiance picked me up and we went home. I changed the dressings when I got home, then I watched tv and fell asleep for 3 hours. I pretty much parked my swollen @$$ on the couch all night. I took a sponge bath and push more nasty stuff out of the wounds. Then my fiance put all of my new bandages on.
That night: I went to sleep on plastic and a towel. I could only sleep on my back, which I usually do but I like the option of switching positions. At 3am I really needed to pee, but I couldnt get out of bed! After some moaning and groaning, my fiance woke up and helped me.
Day 1 afer procedure: This morning, I got out of bed all by myself! My whole body is sore, but my abs are the worst. It is hard to stand up straight and it just hurts really bad. I have no comparison for it. Some people relate it to being sore after a workout, but I think it is much much worse.I have one more Oxycodone and one more Xanax. I must use them wisely. I am figuring that the pain will only get better, so I better take the Oxycodone today. I am staying home today in my garment and underwear and will probably sit on the couch ALL DAY AGAIN!!! More updates to come. I want to wait until I can see a real difference before putting pictures up. I can tell a difference in my stomach because I can see my vag!na, but I am still pretty swollen.
