I'm 30 yrs old & am a mother of 1 child.
I've had 2 smart lipo done on my arms & back 6 yrs ago which left me with uneven and dimpled arms. My 1st Dr was terrible, after the 1st smart lipo which left me with multiple obvious scars (it was supposed to be hidden) my 3rd mth reviewed showed no results. I was very upset & he gave me a free correction lipo. Bruising & swelling was horrible both times & the 2nd lipo left me with fat deposits on my elbows & uneven results. I was so traumatized I decided to live with the results and always wore clothing to cover up.
Finally after the birth of my son, I managed to lose most of my post baby weight & had very good skin recovery (no stretched marks). But my arms bug me to no end thus I started researching on the best surgeon. I found my Dr after reading forums & meeting up with 3 different surgeon on my blotched lipo. I was most comfortable & confident of Dr P.
Today I'm post op 2nd day & I feel great. Arms aching but I could take care of my son, bath him, feed him & we even managed to go to the playground.
I haf 6 incisions and can already see results. The bruising when compared to my past smart lipo experience is so different. I hardly had any bruising and swelling is minimal.
Post op 1st day was the worst for me, when my husband removed the bandages for me I nearly fainted. The damn plasters were so strong! Wearing the compression sleeves up ti date is still a bother, I need my husband's help if not I think I might just faint while wearing the garment. I felt light headed & had to take pain killers every 4 hours. The pain was uncomfortable & nauseating.
My husband has confirmed that I haf zero bruises on my back and swelling is minimal, this after while changing the dressing I haf no more draining & my husband said the incisions has closed & started healing. I do not smoke, eats a non carbo diet with lots of vegetables & exercise regularly. I believe my healing so well may be due to my lifestyle.
I have booked for my tummy & flanks Vaser lipo on 7th Oct, hope it will go well!
I will upload photos soon.
