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?

MY PC is also my GYN, has bedside manner is great and work ethic is excellent. Not to mention, I did not scar and his incision is invisible.

BTW I had lipo on upper and lower abdomen, waist, flanks, bra rolls, and love handles

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 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!

Just envision all your workouts pressed together and you will have great results oc if instantly. The pain medication your doctor provides will make the pain and healing process comfortable. I dont have my surgery until the first week of April. I'm so excited for you. Please share your before and after pics. They help motivate us all. Take care and get that body right!
