i am 2 months post op 3/4 surgery date it is now 5/13 so guess a bit over 2 months. I still have some lumps right around my belly button and a uneveness straight across my bikini line (best way to explain). It does seem to get better a little each day but im telling you I am biting my nails on this one. Dr gabay said that if it did not go away within the benefited healing time 9 months post op he would do a revision under local anesthesia. I know its still somewhat early but its very frustrating to wait wait wait. i really am counting on some feedback from other lipo stories to see how long they had to wait for the skin to smooth out but I see no one really responds unless you post photos. I will get the photos up people just havent been able to do so my computer actually needs to be thrown out a window. lol.... bye for now
Posted photos to show the progression. Finally...

Just wanted to check back in its been a while so wanted to catch you all up to speed. First off its now September which makes me 6 months post op. yes the results are better then before but I'm still not happy with the end result. I can tell you my clothes fit great and I'm loving the silhouette but I'm not confident enough to wear a bikini and that was the whole damn purpose.. I have some hard areas still around my belly button and there are some days it's more pronounced than others. Like when I'm around my cycle the bloat still comes but it's crazy your belly is hard but it accentuates the lumps.. I hate that. I have decided to take the advice from the drs on this site who suggest to wait as long as you can to heal before a revision. So I decided to wait until December or January see how much more it has improved then go ahead and do a touch up... I have posted pics more recent at 4 months which is pretty much what it still looks like now. Hope this helps someone that is ready to go through with this surgery or who have experienced the same. Would love some feed back from others who have been through lipo it helps to share stories and results. Update u again soon.
Dr gabay is a board certified plastic surgeon located on Grant Ave and Roosevelt Blvd. He has his own surgery center on site. He is very compassionate and knowlegable in his field. I have been seeing his anesthetician forever and I trust his work and highly recommend him.... I love you Dr Gabay
