I wanted to jump start a better looking body. Got tired of the you look 40 and then with my clothes off i looked 57, which I am. I don't have any after pictures right now. Will post later.
I used this site and friends experiences to help me decide to go ahead with it. I guess there are some things yu don't discover until after the fact.
I have no pain from the surgery. had about 300g of fat removed from my stomach and back. What I had immediately for about 18 hours was dizziness, nausea and dry heaves which I attribute to the anesthia.Now it's just the discomfort of the body suit, the difficulty of going to the bathroom, the intense urge initially when I had to go to the bathroom I had to go right then, no time to waste, so there were a couple of accidents. That ended after day 2. You expect discomfort after surgery but you never know exactly what it will be.
Would I do it again? Probably not, I'm a wimp when it comes to discomfort. I havent been able to see the full effects. I am bruised but again with no pain. It is truly a personal call. Sorry my pictures aren't available will upload as soon as possible.
I am now 9/10 days post op and decided to share my...

Furthermore,I do not believe your recovery has anything to do with who performs the surgery. Most of us will tell you that our surgeons were great. They are still Dr's "practicing" "blind" (review the procedure) around blood vessels, nerves, cells, muscle, and tissue, an organized system not DESIGNED to be disturbed. Yes, sometimes it has to be for health reasons but not designed to be disturbed.
The human body is a remarkable machine carrying us through our life with little to no attention needed by us. It is designed to go thru its cycles, from infancy to old age in the most efficient, necessary way.We have yet to design a machine that even compares. It is designed to function based on genetics, and only God knows what else but it is a blueprint that is unique to each of us. Hence some of us have stomach's that don't go down, or fat in places we don't want it. We can thank mom and Grandma for that. Unfortunately we hve allowed ourselves to be convinced that someone else's look is better than ours and so often want what we weren't designed to have.
I say all that to say that many of the reviews talk about post op discomfort: swelling, hardness, numbness, nausea, dizziness, discomfort with the compression garments. Some talk of these post op experiences lasting months. Some years. My understanding of these experiences have a completely different meaning for me now after surgery. I suggest that before thinking "oh, that doesn't sound too bad". You remember the last time you had a cold, cut, any injury or illness and how you felt during that time.
I had had few prior surgeries, couple biopsies, and both babies nturally. I know thast the discomfort of recovery from those, minor illnesses like vaginal infections, flu, toothache, wisdom teeth extracted, all have to be endured because they do. But to have voluntarily exposed myself to what I am going thru now can only be called stupidity at it's highest level.
I have swelling that comes and goes, numbness, as in NO feeling and no guarantee I ever will, a body so hard in spots I don't want to touch it. I have to ask myself,"why? was this worth it?" Most of the support I have received on line says yes. I will love it in 3 mos., some say 6, others say they have to go back because they didn't get the results they wanted. Well to each her own. My suggestion is to take a hard, long look at your reasons, the possible consequences, and the machine, the body you are doing this to. Yes, it can "heal" itself but I give you this example. A car once in a major accident even though returned to its original condition, no longer functions as well or has the same value. That's a car. Your body is far superior to a car and I can assure you it will not be the same after the surgery. and you can not sell it to some unsuspecting person.
In 3 mos perhaps I will love my new body. My prayer is that I will love it and it will be the same as it was before with the extra bonus. I don't believe that will be the case. I just wish now that I had loved and appreciated it before.
