From great abs to this! Sooooo embarrassed of my body my thighs are too big, my shape is gone, my butt is flat. I hide my body from my athletic built, good looking husband, who always talk about how fat people are disgusting. My arms are fat, my breast are saggy, I have cellulite. I need help. I am 5"1" and I am 129lbs. Too big for my height. HELP!!!

Day 1 post-op

Fell good. Just a little tolerable pain. Looks really good with swelling mostly in the public area. Don't know what happened to my butt, it looks really small and indentation on sides. This I am very worried about. I think the doctor may have went a little too low or I'm just too swollen in my back.

Swelling in pubic area

Please forgive me

Still on meds. These pics were taken a few hours after surgery. I will send pics for my 1 day post op.

post op day 1

Swollen but looks good overall. Pubic area very swollen. Hardly had any leaking. Still worried about my rump.

Day 5

Worried about my butt. I might have to consider bbl after. I hope i have enough fat from my outer thighs and arms???
Am I overreacting? ?????, 1st post op tomorrow. Overall great outcome. Moving around just find minimal swelling, sore tummy and inner lower knees.

First of all, your post op day 1 picture looks incredible! Second question…which areas exactly did you have lipo on because you did not specify. And did you do traditional lipo or smart lipo? I think you look great!

Boy, what a difference. Pls do not rush things, with three kids it is hard not to. Do not b lifting the kids until the doctor gives permission, u would not want to delay the healing to see the completely nu u. Good luck.

You look great. So glad you are done. How long did you stay out of your garment on day 1? Also looks like not too much bruising. You will have amazing results.

Very anxious. Worried about how it will turn out, if I will be smaller or bigger or the same after.

I have a great waistline, the hips are some smaller, and abdomen is somewhat flatter and getting more so all the time. I still wear the same jeans but minus the muffin top. These things are fine with me I just wanted a s sleeker line and to lose the muffin top and that hass been achieved.
