Hello
Countdown to my liposuction on Friday. I am excited and scared - but I can't wait to get rid of my 'mummy tummy' at last. I have 2 daughters 5 & 2, and after my second daughter was born by emergency c-section my stomach is a mess. I still look about 5 months pregnant and just can't shift it not matter how hard I diet and exercise. After reading a lot of reviews on here I have decided to go for it. I'll post some before and after photos ones I've taken them. Roll on Friday I say !

Today is day 1 after the op. I have to say, the op itself went pretty well and i didn't any pain really.. 2 litres of fat/fluid taken out. The worst bit by far is having to wear the compression garment and abdo binder, I didn't sleep at all last night as I felt like I couldn't breathe. Took it all off this morning for a shower and my 'love handles' have completely gone, amazing. My stomach looks a mess though, like an empty balloon. I am really hoping it improves quickly. On the plus side I have gone down 5 inches on my waist so pretty happy with that! I have to wear the binder for 24 hours after the last drop of fluid has drained out.
I will take some photos in a week and post on here.

Day 4
Stomach area is MUCH better today. The 'balloon' look has gone and skin seems to be contracting well. The photos were taken yesterday, and I am really happy with the results so far. Odd that I wasn't swollen up yesterday but today I am. I am looking forward to the swelling going down again soon. Feel like my normal self today, not in as much pain and managed pushing the buggy on the school run without any difficulty :-)

So 10 days on from my last update. I am still wearing the dreaded compression garment at night and around the house. Scabs have all healed and the scars are tiny. My love handles are great (they are not there anymore!!!) but my stomach is still very large - I guess most of this is swelling, it feels hard too. I am hoping that over the next 2 weeks this settles down as I look much bigger than I did the day after the lipo. I tried to go back to the gym yesterday but everything is still quite sore when running so will leave it for another few days. I am really happy with the results but will be much happier once the swelling goes ! I know I must be patient (which is one thing I am not ;-)
I will take some more photos in 2 weeks time.

Hello All
So, it's 6 months on. My love handles and back look AMAZING but my tummy (although definitely smaller than before) is still very big. I went back to see the Dr today and I am having a revision procedure done early January. Hurrah! I am actually looking forward to it. I've spent the last few months killing myself with exercise and weight loss and still not one single cm off my waist. Fingers crossed it works in January. I will take before and after photos nearer the time. At least I'm not worried about getting it done as it really didn't hurt at all last time. Bye for now xx
