I've been thinking about undergoing liposuction...
What made me want to share my thoughts is my wavering mind. I want to make sure I'm making the right decision considering how much money it costs and potential complications that could happen. And since I've never had any sedation ever, it's a big decision to make considering this is an elective procedure.
Wondering what people think of my photos too? Am I a good candidate, anyone else have a similar body shape etc
So, as I was saying, everything is booked in, I meet with the doctor next Tuesday morning then start the procedure around 1:30pm. I just have to get a blood test tomorrow and pick up a prescription for antibiotics.
They've been good with communication today, organising everything etc.
So I've done my pre-lipo weight and measurements too as below:
Upper Arms L 30cms R 30cms
Thighs at the widest point 102cms
Thighs L 60cms R 61cms
Above knee L 45cms R 46cms
So the countdown begins...
Tomorrow's the big day
A truck ran over me...
The nurse was nice and made me feel comfortable even though I had to be naked. Although once the drugs take effect you don't care anyway.
Dr Goldbaum was good, I was happy that he knew what he was doing and had my safety in mind. I'd read previous review here and other sites that didn't make him come off too good. I can see how some people could view him as arrogant or what not but the guys had over like 20 years experience, I think he knows what he's doing.
Being a nurse myself I think I was a bit more prepared at how he goes about things etc. I was told I was 'fighting the drugs' because I'm such a curious person especially when it comes to medicine/health care.
I had a few vomits this morning but I think that was due to the codeine I've been taking rather than me feeling crappy. My muscles hurt really bad, like what he told me to expect - like i've just done a massive gym routine - but it's way more than that. Once I'm sitting or lying comfortably i'm good, but when I need to move it hurts. And since I got 6 areas done at once I think I'm doing well in managing this pain. Trying to remind myself that I've been wanting this for ages and it won't be long til I feel better.
I'm a bit smelly too after my shower this morning. It got most of the blood stained weepy bits but not all. I can't take it off, even to shower for the first 7 days.
I've got some swelling too I think mostly around my legs and hips.
I would of thought I'd get a call from Lipo Australia as a check in, making sure I'm ok, but nothing yet...
Upper Arms L 27cms R 27cms
Thighs at the widest point 95cms
Thighs L 57cms R 58cms
Above knee L 42cms R 41cms
So far a total of 31cms lost!
Wholly crap. I probably don't sound as enthused as I would be, but that just because I still feel like crap. Trying to stay motivated to keep moving around is more difficult today.

So far so good. Communication isn't too bad. Email could be improved. I prefer email as I'm a busy busy person and work random shifts. I've read some bad reviews but I'm hoping that the good outweighs the bad. People are more inclined to post a bad review than a good one.
