I just had laser lipo on my mid abs, waist, hips and inner thighs....my drainage only lasted a day, but my understanding is that it depends on your size ( the drainage is the fluids they put in, so size does matter) but either way i only needed a couple sterile pads (diapers might be a bit much) the incisions healed w/in days and started scabbing over...i am 10 days post op and i still have some swelling and bruising but not much pain left....the first two days were just a lot of soreness, which was alleviated easily by either the vicoden prescribed or simple motrin which was recommended. The most painful part of the procedure was the novacaine injections....if i started to feel anything in an area. (Like my love handle area) then i just told the Dr. who injected more solution which numbs the area.... iactually watched my stomach get done i was so intrigued :-)

it will be a month tomorrow since my procedure. I am very pleased withy results. Had no issues and never needed to take any of the pain Meds. I still am very a spanx garment for support. I still have some skin hanging in my lower stomach but this was so worth it because of no down time.
