Butt was HUGE afterwards but turned out great....

Butt was HUGE afterwards but turned out great. I'm 3 weeks out and very satisfied with the results.

First 2 days are the hardest.

First day is the hardest. I was pretty out of it...

First day is the hardest. I was pretty out of it couldn't stand, walk, anything. My butt was HUGE and waist was little. I was bruised with really dark purple bruises from under my armpits to below my butt cheeks.

Day 1 & 2 were the hardest, it was hard to get up ... hard to sleep... everything but pain medication helped

Around Day 3 my body became HUGE all the lipo areas looked really bloated and I started to get discouraged. I was able to move around a little easier. At night my compression garment (like a tight one piece) would get so tight it felt hard to breath (to remedy I bought a slightly larger one to sleep in at night)

After the first week things became a lotttt easier. I could walk and move around. My butt and hips were still huge at this point I loved the way I looked it was bigger than what I expected but I liked it.

After week two my butt went down considerably and begin to look more normal. Sleeping is still very uncomfortable. I stopped taking pain pills. I was pretty much able to do anything. My doctor told me to only avoid sitting for two weeks. However, from reviews I read I went a head and set out for 3 weeks.

After week 3, I LOVE my results.. I would have liked a bigger more "shelf" like booty. But I'm 5'7 and weighed 136 lbs. the day of my surgery. My doctor said he would have liked me to weigh closer to 150 lbs. but I just could not gain the weight.

I will continue to sit on a pillow for 2-3 more weeks and try to avoid sitting for long periods of time and on hard surfaces. From what I read where you are at, at 3 weeks is pretty much where you'll stay.

Hope all of this helps.

Hello All. Sorry it took me so long to post...

Hello All.

Sorry it took me so long to post more picture. I am now 8 months out and everything is great. I'm actually gearing up to have a breast augmentation this coming Tuesday. I'm so excited.

I posted a comment recently. In case you missed it. My booty is doing good. I haven't lost anything since 6 weeks after my surgery.

I had gained about 10 lbs and then loss 15 lbs. I went up to 145 and now I'm back comfortably at 130 lbs. my booty adjusted accordingly....

Current measurements are 31-27-41.
