Help! Having Dual Laser Lipo on 3/15/12 on Upper/Lower Abdomen, Flanks, Low Back & Wings - Slidell, LA

I am have dual laser lipo of the upper/lower abdomen, flanks, low back and wings on March 15, 2012. I going for pre-op work tomorrow. I am nervious, scared and anxious at the same time. I don’t know what to expect. Is there someone out there who has had lipo done and can give me some insight on what to expect?

I am told that since my surgery is on a Thursday, I should be finished draining by Saturday and be at work on Monday (because I sit down). I am also told I will be sore. Can anyone please give me some insight as to what I am getting myself into?

I have prepaid for upper, lower abs and flanks and thought flanks and love handles were the same thing. What do you consider your flanks? I really want my love handles done! My surgery is in mid April Thanks!
I had my pr-op work done today. I had the same question and my PC told me that my flanks are my side waist. I'll be posting before and after pics soon.

I am 12 days post op. I am still swollen; however no pain and very little bruising. My PC said I am coming along well. I have pics to post if I can figure out how to do so. LOL

I did post my pictures and had some really good feedback from several doctors. Thanks so much!! I mentioned that because of my age (70 in a few months) I was worried about ending up with wrinkled, sagging, ugly skin, and was advised that this would most certainly be the case, due to my age. I am very grateful for the candid comments, and have canceled my Lipo. I would rather keep my round smooth belly and love handles than take a chance on poor results! Good luck to you younger gals - go for it while you have some elasticity left!
