It's finally MY time for the body I want....

It's finally MY time for the body I want. Well, in stages. =)
I'm 28 & have 3 gorgeous kids. The first was born when I was 14 & did major damage to my body. 10 years later I had a son & became pregnant with my daughter when that son was 3 months old. My bod's been through a lot!
I've been working out pretty hardcore for over a year. I've seen dramatic changes in my arms, face, legs & rear. The fat on my gut & hips wasn't budging. I've got a nice little "flap" & the skin is beyond damaged. I know I'll need a FTT. The first step was lipo of the tummy & hips.
All my kids were delivered via c-section. The pain after lipo was a breeze compared to that. The pain was/is annoying at best. I'm almost 2 weeks post-op & itching is the worst right now. I also wasn't prepared for the lumps, bumps & rope-y feelings that now live beneath my healing skin!
I don't think I was properly fitted for a compression garment & have been using some pretty good shape-wear as a substitute. I notice some good levels of pain when I accidentally stretch my tummy too much or twist the wrong way.
All in all, I do see changes, but can't wait to heal up & really see the me w/ less tummy & hip fat!
I'm 7 weeks post-op today. Very thankful that...

Dr. Harrell & his team did such a super job. I got a lot of follow-up appointments. At the final one, I got a laser microdermabrasion treatment, makeup application & a lovely photo taken at no extra cost. Was great to be pampered!
I'm 14 weeks post op today & feel GREAT. All...

My Doctor: C. Randall Harrell, MD
Dr. Harrell was very pleasant & the FOYI staff are super sweet, knowledgeable, & professional. My only minor complaint is that there wasn't too much in the way of Dr./patient time. I didn't get to talk with him during my pre-op or really after my surgery. I know liposuction isn't weight loss surgery, but I just don't know what to expect for my final results. I'm sure all of that can be resolved with my post-op appointments though. I'm pleased to see results already & don't regret choosing Dr. Harrell for my liposuction!
